[[caption-width-right:255:{{Google}} developers have quite a SweetTooth.[[note]]Atop from left: [[AlphabeticalThemeNaming Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Fro(zen)yo(gurt), Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and KitKat]].[[/note]]]]


A rather silly form of ThemeNaming is to name characters after food and drinks. This tends to be done in comedic and child-oriented works, because it is very difficult to take someone named Sausage seriously. However, such a character may be afforded some dignity by being named after a food in a foreign language; somebody named Okonomiyaki sounds rather more impressive to an English speaker than one named Pizza.

!!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Many characters in Part 5 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' are named after Italian foods. Examples include Pannacotta Fugo, Risotto Nero, Melone, Cioccolata, Gelato, Sorbet, Prosciutto, Pesci, Formaggio, and Mario Zucchero.
* The heroes of ''SorcererHunters'' are all named for foods, mostly sweets or pastries ("Tira Misu" and "Marron Glace", for example).
** Akahori seems to be a fan of this, since the main cast of Chivas 1-2-3 is named after liquor and Knights of Ramune has much of its cast named after other, more child-friendly drinks. See Saber Marionette J below for more of his work.
* Likewise the five girls of the two main ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' casts are also all named after foods, mostly desserts. Both Karasuma Chitose and Iyazoi Natsume, each the SixthRanger of her group, have fairly normal Japanese names. The villains of the ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel'' video games have an alcohol theme going on, which explains Tequila's possession in the first game in which she appears.
* ''{{Dragonball}}'' used this a lot, in addition to other forms of theme naming:
** Full blooded saiyans are named after vegetables: Kakarot (carrot), Nappa (a type of cabbage), Vegeta(ble), Raditz (radish), Broly (broccoli); "Saiya", is an anagram of "yasai", meaning "vegetable"....
** The henchmen of Frieza, an enemy of the saiyans has several henchmen named after fruits: Cui (kiwi), Dodoria (durian), Zarbon (the Japanese name for the pomelo). Much later, it is revealed that the ancient enemy of the saiyans is the Tsuffles, or "tsufuru" in Japanese, which is an anagram for "furutsu", or "fruit".
** The sentai parody team the Ginyu Special Corps has members named after dairy products, Ginyu (cow's milk), Butta (butter), Gurd (yogurt), Jheese (cheese), Reacoom ("Rikumu" is an anagram for "kurimu", or "cream").
** Goku and Satan's mutual granddaughter gets two references: "Pan" which is Japanese (and Spanish, and Portugese, and...) for "bread," as her father's name, Gohan, means "rice;" they're both carbohydrates and staple foods, and it also refers to the satyr, Pan.
** In the filler episodes of Piccolo Jr. Saga, Mr. Popo sent Goku to a forest and met Mousse. He, his wife Eclair, and all nine children are named after sweets: Crepe, Cookie, Cocoa, Creampuff, Jam, Jelly, Donuts, Pudding, and Cupcake.
** In ''DragonballZ'', every Namekian besides Piccolo is named for Slug, Snail or a dish which uses those as the main ingredients. (Everyone in Piccolo's family is named after musical instruments.)
** This also applies to other characters like Kuririn (the "kuri" means chestnut), Puar & Oolong (types of tea), etc. Supposedly, AkiraToriyama did this so it would be easy to remember character's names.
** Master Shen's students [[HeterosexualLifePartners Tenshinhan and Chiaotzu]] each have the name of each other's favorite foods.
* The girls of ''TokyoMewMew'' are all named after plants or desserts, and their last names follow the pattern of Color Place (Momomiya = Peach Shrine, Midorikawa = Green River, etc.) Their alien foes are named after filled pastry items (Quiche, Tart, and Pie).
* The main marionettes from ''Anime/SaberMarionetteJ'' are named after fruits.
* The names of the Kurosaki siblings in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' are all puns on fruits. (Ichigo = strawberry, Karin = quince, Yuzu = citron)
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', all of the known members and aspirants of the Seven Shinobi Swordsmen of the Mist ([[OddNameOut with the exception of the most likely non-canon Raiga Kurosuki]] from {{Filler}}) have surnames dealing with produce: Momochi (momo = peach), Hoshigaki (dried persimmon), Hozuki (Chinese lantern fruit), Akebino (akebi = chocolate vine), Kuriarare (kuri = chestnut), Munashi (nashi = Asian pear), Ringo (apple), and Suikazan (suika = watermelon). Even Chojuro, who has OnlyOneName, is named after a particular type of Asian pear.
* The Musk Dynasty in ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' has Herb, Lime, and Mint, while the Phoenix Tribe has Saffron (after the rice), Kiima (after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keema keema]]), Koruma (from "korma", a curry dish) and Masara (masala, a mix of spices.) Herbology martial artists Pink and Link have ThemeTwinNaming. The Guide (who is named after his profession) has a daughter named Plum. And let's not forget Lychee, from ''Big Trouble In Nekonron, China''. Pantyhose Taro (who was baptized and named by Happosai) fell victim to a whole other kind of ThemeNaming, but he met Rouge, and a different Saffron.
* In ''Manga/AirGear'', the Noyamano sisters (members of Sleeping Forest) are nicknamed after fruits: Rika (''pear blossoms''), Ringo (''apple''), Ume (''plum'') and Mikan (''tangerine''). Ringo's name is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when Rika threatens her by crushing an apple while hinting obliquely at her fate should she disobey.
* ''RosarioToVampire'' has vampire sisters named Moka/Mocha and Kokoa/Cocoa, their elder Karua/Kahlua, and their adopted (and thus named not quite to theme) sister Akua/Aqua.
** Just about the whole family is part of the theme nameing father Issa(lit. "one [cup of] tea"), Kahlua and Kokoa's mother Gyokuro (a type of green tea), and dog Earl Grey.
* ''SamuraiPizzaCats'' has two characters named after pizza toppings.
* ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'''s MagicalGirl parody ShowWithinAShow, ''Magical Princess Natural Lychee'', includes an antagonist of the titular character who is named Rambutan. (Lychee and Rambutan are both Asian tropical fruits.)
* In ''YesPrecure5'', the mascots are all named after food; Coco and Nuts (their names are a pun on 'coconut'), Milk, Syrup, and don't even get me started on the royals.
** Similarly, in ''FreshPrettyCure'', not only the mascots, Chiffon and Tart ([[NamesTheSame not the ones mentioned above]]), follow the same pattern, but the ''Cures'' also do, as their Cure forms are named after fruits: Cure Peach, Cure Berry, Cure Pine (as in 'pineapple', not 'pine tree'), and Cure Passion (as in 'passionfruit').
* Early in ''OnePiece'', Usopp's "pirate crew" is made of 3 little boys named Carrot, Pepper, and Onion. Their hairstyles resemble the food they're named after.
* In ''UruseiYatsura'', there is a group of {{Unknown Rival}}s to Lum, Oyuki, and Benten. They are named Sugar, Ginger, and Pepper.
* Most of the characters (and all of the place names) in ''JingKingOfBandits'' are named for alcoholic beverages. "Jing" is actually supposed to be "Gin" (the spelling is intentional on the author's part, since "Gin" would connote a much different pronunciation in Japanese); Kir (Jing's bird sidekick) is a liqueur; and their signature attack "Kir Royale" is a cocktail made with said liqueur.
* One of the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' movies has a team of villains who are all named after sweet items.
* The antagonists of DetectiveConan are given liqueur codenames like Gin, Vodka, Vermouth, Kir, etc.
** [[spoiler: Also used as a RedHerring with a woman named Jodie Saintemillion, after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-%C3%89milion a famous wine-producing region in France]]. She was believed to be a member of the antagonist group, but she actually is an ActionGirl ''opposed'' to them.]]
* Most of the main female casts of ''DogDays'' are named after bread and sweets, either in their first or last names - Princess Millhiore F. ''Biscotti'', {{Tsundere}} ''Eclair'', MadScientist ''Riccotta'', {{Samurai}} ''Brioche'' d'Arquien, [[HighlyVisibleNinja Ninja]] Yukikaze ''Panettone'', etc...
* VS Knights Lamune & 40 Fire, and its HotterandSexier OAV Knights of Ramune/VS Knights Lamune Fresh have this trope, although the latter seems to have a lot more characters to this effect.
* ''Anime/HanaukyoMaidTai''. Taro's personal maid staff.
** Season 1: Lemon, Marron (chestnut) and Melon
** Season 2: Ichigo (strawberry), Ringo (apple) and Sango (maple)
* Thanks to most of the characters in ''{{Franchise/Anpanman}}'' being themed around food (some actually ''being'' the food that they're themed around), this is very common. A few non-food characters named after food include Uncle Jam (Anpanman's father figure), Batako (meaning "Butter Girl", Uncle Jam's assistant), and Cheese (Anpanman's pet dog). Also, all of the horses are given food names based on who their owners are (Hamburger Kid has Pickles, Yakisobapanman has White Sauce, Croquette Kid has Ketchup, and Princess Salad has Vinegar).
* The Kitashirakawas in ''Anime/TamakoMarket'' all have names related to mochi:
** Tamako is named after their mochi shop Tamaya--"-ya" is a business suffix and "-ko" is a feminine name suffix.
** Anko is named after the red bean paste filling.
** When you put the names of their father Mamedai and grandfather Fuku together, you'd get Mame-[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daifuku daifuku]], Tamaya's specialty. Lampshaded in episode 10.
* One episode of the ''[[{{Anime.Pokemon}} Pokémon]]'' anime featured an elderly woman named Abigail and her Pikachu, Sugar, who was named such because it helped her to bake cakes.
* The cast of ''Manga/GochuumonWaUsagiDesuKa'' are based on things likely to appear in a coffee shop. (For the sake of explanation, [[NameOrderConfusion the examples below are written in surname-first order]].)
** Hoto Kokoa: Hot cocoa
** Kafuu Chino: Cappuccino
** Tedeza Rize: Thé des Alizés, a green tea-fruit blend.
** Ujimatsu Chiya: Uji matcha, one of the more famous Japanese green teas.
** Kirima Sharo: A transliteration of Kilimanjaro, which in the Japanese context nearly always refers to Kenyan coffee.
** Natsu Megumi: Nutmeg (''Natsumegu'')
** Jouga Maya: Jogmaya, one of the major tea estates in Darjeeling.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Tony Chu has the nickname {{Chew}} as a direct result of his power of being able to see how anything was killed by eating it.
* Attempted in ''ComicBook/NewXMen'' but accidentally subverted at the last second when [[ExecutiveMeddling a different writer took over the series]]. GrantMorrison had intended to name the five Stepford Cuckoos -- who are essentially [[VagueAge younger]] [[CloningBlues clones of Emma Frost]], created from [[{{Squick}} ova harvested by scientists while she was comatose]] -- so that the first letter of each of their names would spell "spice." However, he'd only given the names of four of them during his run (Sophie, Phoebe, Celeste, and Esme) and he hadn't told anyone about the EasterEgg, so Chuck Austen unknowingly dubbed the fifth Cuckoo Mindee, accidentally messing up Grant's intentions.
** Later corrected by stating her real name is actually Irma in a narrator's bubble.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfiction]]
* All named Seeq in FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire are named after a type of meat.
** First, there is T-bone.
** Second, there is Ribs.
** Third, there is Sir Loin.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films]]
* Every Sugar Rush character from WreckItRalph, most of whom use the specific sub-genre of candy. Where they got the name Muttonfudge, nobody knows.
* Brand-name junk foods are used for this purpose in ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'', where Joe Bauers' attorney is named Frito and the President is Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.
* In the film WhatAGirlWants, two of Daphne's debutante friends are named Peach and Pear. They apparently have a sister named Parsnip; she doesn't get out much.
* The Penderghast family in ''Film/EasyA'' are all named after food. Daughter/Protagonist Olive, Mother Rosemary, Father Dill and Brother Chip.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Anything Japanese in ''Literature/GoodOmens'' is named after food, including a model of car called the Wasabi and a ship called the Kappamaki.
* The Fudge series gives us Farley "Fudge", and Tamara "Tootsie." Peter lampshades this at one point by commenting that his parents really wanted a candy shop.
* Apparently Vicky Holmes was hungry when she wrote the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' book ''[=SkyClan=]'s Destiny''... it introduces cats named Egg, Nutmeg, and you could even count Velvet if you think of red velvet.
* Many of the rats in ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents'' are named after food (like Dangerous Beans, Peaches and Sardines) or words related to food (like Additives and Nourishing). This is because they have learnt a lot of their vocabulary from reading food packaging.
** Two countries on the Literature/{{Discworld}} are named Djelibeybi (jellybaby) and Hersheba (Hershey bar). WordOfGod is that Pratchett came up with Hersheba upon finding out that many of his American fans didn't get the jellybaby pun, which led him to wonder which US-specific candy he should have named it after instead.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In-universe example in the BBC comedy drama ''Cruise of the Gods''. The creator of a short-lived cult sci-fi series finally tires of the {{fandom}} trying to find hidden meanings in the exotic character names and reveals that they were all just anagrams of dishes at his local curry house. (And you're right, it does stretch credulity that nobody would have noticed this before.)
* On {{Glee}}, all of Will's love interests are named after food: Terri Delmonico (a type of steak), Emma Pillsbury, Suzie Pepper, and Rachel Berry.
** Holly Holiday. While Holly is ''technically'' edible, it's only edible in the sense that you can eat it, not that you should.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* RichardCheese and all of the other members of Lounge Against the Machine, including Bobby Ricotta, Frank Feta, Billy Bleu, have a cheese theme naming.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The members of the [[SugarBowl Madolche]] card archetype in ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' are all named by a portmanteau of a word related to what they are, and a dessert name. Thus, you have the cavalry rider Chouxvalier, the RidiculouslyCuteCritter Cruffsant, and are ruled by TheHighQueen, Tiaramisu, and they all live in the Madolche Chateau (y'know, like "gateau").
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The Frost Five in SoulHackers. Strawberry Frost, Lemon Frost, Melon Frost, Milk and Curry Frost, Blue Hawaii Frost.
* In the obscure Game Boy RPG ''VideoGame/GreatGreed'' (also known as ''Vitamina Kingdom''), all the friendly [=NPCs=] and regions have food-related names. For example, the five princesses are named Candy, Cup Cake, Truffle, Gum Drop, and Citrus.
-->'''Gum Drop:''' ...so the programmer gave us strange names, you have a problem with that?
* In ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry 6'', all of the girls Larry has a chance at scoring with are named after alcoholic beverages, from Char Donnay to Thunderbird.
* The GoldfishPoopGang from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', in the Japanese original, was named after dressings: Vinegar, Mayonnaise and Soysauce. The [[ContestedSequel sequel]] ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' features Solt and Peppor, the Shaker Brothers, who are at one time joined by Ketchop.
* Many of the areas of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' are so named: Donut Plains, Vanilla Dome, Chocolate Island, Cheese Bridge, Butter Bridge, and Soda Lake.
** Taking its cue, ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'' has Donut Plains and Vanilla Lake stages.
** Likely in reference to ''Super Mario World'', ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''[='=]s levels are named are food too. Layer-Cake Desert, Frosted Glacier, Soda Jungle, Rock-Candy Mines, Meringue Clouds and [[spoiler:Peach's Castle]]. The first is also arguably LevelAte, with giant cakes and ice cream in the scenery.
* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia''[='=]s [[CuteKitten cats]] are all named after different ingredients.
* ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure'' has levels named: Vegetable Valley, Ice Cream Island, Butter Building, Grape Garden, Yogurt Yard, and Orange Ocean.
** Repeated in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'': Cookie Country, Raisin Ruins, Onion Ocean, White Wafers, Nutty Noon, Egg Engines, and Dangerous Dinner.
** Also, in ''VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror'': Cabbage Cavern, Mustard Mountain, Carrot Castle, Olive Ocean, Peppermint Palace, and Candy Constellation.
** ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar''[='=]s "Dyna Blade" brings us Peanut Plain, Mallow Castle, Cocoa Cave, and Candy Mountain. They weren't named in-game originally, but ''[[VideoGameRemake Ultra]]'' featured their names on the touch screen.
* Kitchen Island from ''VideoGame/WarioLand 1'' includes Rice Beach, Mt Teapot, Sherbet Land, Stove Canyon, SS Teacup, Parsely Woods, Fork Tree and Syrup Castle. Incidentally, the pirate leader is also named after food...
** To keep with the theme naming, Princess [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Shokora/Chocolat]] from Wario Land 4.
* ''VideoGame/PanicRestaurant'' has levels named after food, full of food-themed enemies.
* In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', Luigi tells of his adventures in the Waffle Kingdom with Princess Éclair, King Chestnut and Minister Crepe.
** From his stories and the look of his partners, it seems that [[LevelAte the entire Waffle Kingdom is themed after food]].
* The names of two (out of five) of the lead characters of ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' is a gag about Mint and Watercress salad, although the "joke" is LostInTranslation because the hero's name is consistently romanized as "Cless."
* From his appearance, Montblanc from ''FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' seems to be named after the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont_Blanc_%28dessert%29 Mont Blanc]] pastry.
* Practically everyone in ''MagicalStarsign''. There are different naming themes for different groups of characters. For example, the moles are named after cheeses, and the dwarves are named after sauces. Just to name a few more: the solar system where the game takes place is called Balkava, there's a school principal named Biscotti, a police officer named Brie, two salamanders named Chowder and Bisque...
* In ''BraveFencerMusashi'', most of the inhabitants of Alucaneet Castle are named after meat (eg. Princess Fillet, Acrobat Sausages, Scribe Shanky, Butler Livers) while most of the characters from the Thirstquencher Empire are named for drinks (Gingerelle, Bubbles, etc.).
** The princess and nearly all of the maidens in MusashiSamuraiLegend are named after different cheeses, and all of [[BigBad Gandrake's]] [[QuirkyMinibossSquad henchmen]] are named after different wines.
* Most of the major characters in ''SteambotChronicles'' are named for seasonings -- with pretty much anyone else who's at all significant being named for a [[FloralThemeNaming non-edible plant]] if they ran out. Lampshaded in-game -- when you look at the spice rack of Mrs. Echinacea, it says the jars contain seasonings. Or people, it's hard to tell.
* Two of the main female characters from ''VideoGame/ClaDun: This is an RPG'' are named after dessert foods (Pudding and Sherbet).
* The Pinatas in ''VivaPinata'' are named after candies and dessert foods (Mousemallow, Taffly, Horstachio, etc.)
* In ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'', the angels are named after desserts. Flonne (pronounced as flan) and Seraph Lamington are examples.
* ''TailConcerto'' has the twofer food reference with its main character Waffle Ryebread, and his assistant is named ''Pan''ta.
** Its SpiritualSuccessor ''{{Solatorobo}}'' follows suits. Not only do Waffle and Panta make appearances, but the main character's sister is named ''Chocolot Gelato''. A lot of the NPC s have food names as well, ranging from obvious to obscure: Toffee, Biscuit, Frito, Raisin, Vanille, the quest broker Flo Financier (short for "fromage", cheese, and a financier is type of cake), Frassier (another cake), Suzette (as in crepe suzette), Kouglof (a french dessert)... In other words, talking about the cast of this game is like reading the menu of a French diner.
* In ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', members of the Goodsoup family have soup-related first names like Minnie Stronie and Wonton. There is also a guest at their inn named Charles de Goulash.
** Partially subverted in ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'' with the Fetuccini Brothers. While the brothers' surname and Alfredo's first name play this straight, Alfredo's brother is named Bill.
* In ''VideoGame/CookingMama'', Mama's daughter is named Ichigo (strawberry) while her son is named Ringo (Apple).
* In ''JustForFun/PokemonVietnameseCrystal'', some of the Pokemon names are mistranslated as food items. For example, Sandslash is called Bread, Venonat is called Corn, and Flaaffy is called Pea.
* Every single gym leader in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' manages to have a Japanese name that is both the name of a plant or fruit, and has something to do with their Pokémon type. The English names are simply type references.
** The five 'Partners' or 'Stat Trainers' of the [[VideoGames/PokemonDiamondAndPearl fourth generation games]] are named after cereal grains in most translations.
** In VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite's English translation, there are gym leaders named Cilan (cilantro), Chili, and Cress (watercress). They are also waiters, and their names still correspond with their preferred type (Grass for Cilan, Fire for Chili, and Water for Cress).
* The names of Death Adder's minions in ''GoldenAxe'' are all references to alcoholic beverages (with some of the [[SpellMyNameWithAnS spellings changed]] to avoid [[WritingAroundTrademarks trademark infringement]]): we have Heninger (Henninger), Longmoan (Longmorn), the Zuburoka (Zubrowka) amazons (whose individual members are named after different brands of vodka), the Bad Brothers (a mistranslation of "Bud", as in "Budweiser") and the Bitter knights.
* Toro Inoue the Sony cat/{{Mascot}} was named for his love of fatty tuna. Fittingly, his owner who gave him the name is a sushi chef [[note]]"Toro" translates to "tuna meat"[[/note]].
* In WarioMasterOfDisguise, all the villains are named after Italian food. Namely Count Cannoli (named after an Italian dessert), Carpaccio (named after a meat dish) and Tiaramisu, named after another dessert. They're named after Italian cooking terms in Japanese.
* The Apple Kid and Orange Kid from ''VideoGame/EarthBound''.
* In the FamicomDiskSystem version of ''VideoGame/{{Wardner}}'', the hero is Prince À la Mode of the Chou Kingdom, and the princess is Purin (Pudding) of the Custard Kingdom.
* All of the chefs in the ''Cooking Academy'' series have names like Henri Fromage [[note]]French for cheese[[/note]] and Xavier Benedict.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Adventurers}}!'', Karashi's sister's name is Mizuna. Karashina and Mizuna are both Japanese mustard plants. Not a coincidence; when the two square off against each other, the name of the story arc is "Mustard Wars".
* The ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' fan webcomic ''[[http://gonetoground.ca Gone to Ground]]'''s Imperial Guardsmen's names are chock full of this trope -- Sergeant Cooke, Private Eggleston (who's nicknamed 'Eggs' by his friend anyway), Corporal Hamm...
* ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest'' is the story of Cucumber and his sister Almond, seeking to save the Donut Kingdom and its various food-named inhabitants from an ancient evil. Along the way, they even run into a QuirkyMinibossSquad whose members are named Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato.
* ''TriggerStar'': The FiveManBand (including the TeamPet) and most of the antagoinsts are named after food items. For instance: the "hero" is Avocado Guacamole and the BigBad is called Black Licorice.
* ''Webcomic/ShotgunShuffle'' gives us the seven Buckingham girls, who are all named after foods, particularly spices. Ellie's birth name is Lavender, but she legally changed it the second she turned eighteen, which annoyed her parents.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In the ''LeagueOfIntergalacticCosmicChampions'' there was Tacoman, Hamburger Pattie, Taquito Boy, Frangelica, Commander Milkshake, & Soyburger Patricia.

--> '''Applejack''': I've got apple pie, apple fritters, apple tarts, apple dumplings, apple crisps, apple crumblers, and apple brown betty... uh, the dessert, not my auntie.
** Also, Pinkie ''Pie'' works for Mr. Carrot ''Cake'' and Mrs. Cup ''Cake'' in a bakery, and also babysits their children, Pumpkin Cake and Pound Cake.
