A certain stock kind of villain, the Evil Chef is just [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin that]]. They're cooks who are deliberately evil. It doesn't matter how exactly they're trying to achieve that goal, just that their primary role is as a chef or cook. They may or may not be using their cooking skills to attempt to defeat the heroes; they may just have the chef characteristics as something completely unconnected to their evil plans. They usually come in one of two types: the French chef type with a very pointy mustache, and the 'school canteen chef'.

Not to be confused with LethalChef, as characters listed on that page are not always evil. Nor are the characters listed here always actually bad at cooking. This is for evil/killer cooks who cause death and destruction, often by their cooking (and deliberately) while LethalChef is for people who cannot cook that often accidentally cause various effects because of how bad their cooking is. Chefs make great villains because they work with lots of different types of big [[KnifeNut knives]] and various things easily converted to weapons ([[FryingPanOfDoom frying pans]], [[RollingPinOfDoom rolling pins]], meat tenderizers...).

Also has about a 50% chance of being a case of ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything, in that many of these characters may not actually be shown to cook in the story. In [[BeastFable stories]] in which the main characters are animals, they of course run the risk of being cooked up or being trapped for stealing food; in this case the Evil Chef is less nastily evil, since he's just doing his job, but is still very threatening.

May overlap with the ChefOfIron, if the Evil Chef fights his or her enemies using cooking implements as weapons or suchlike. May also overlap with MadArtist if you consider cooking an art form, and especially if the character's goal is to make the best food possible through any means. Also see IAteWhat, and StabTheSalad. Most rivals in a CookingDuel are merely an OpposingSportsTeam, who may not even be negatively characterized; but there can obviously be an incentive to make such a character into an actually evil enemy.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Shirota Masakage from ''Manga/MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'', the episode villain from the 1st anime episode and chapters 4-6 of the manga.
* Since the main character in ''Manga/ChuukaIchiban'' is a chef, it is logical to make all of his main enemies chefs as well. That, and the fact that it is a CookingDuel series.
* A couple of actively evil chefs showed up in ''Manga/IronWokJan'', most notably [[strike:[[AntiHero Jan Akiyama]]]] Go "Taoist Gogyo" Gyokai, who was actually trained as a culinary assassin.
* There was an evil (not to mention really gross) chef named Wanze in ''Manga/OnePiece''. He fought Sanji using noodles, some of which came out of his nose.
** Later on, we have [[spoiler:Charlotte Pudding]], a dessert chef who [[spoiler:gets engaged to marry Sanji...or that's what it looks like on the outside. The truth is that Pudding ''used'' to be a normal kid [[WoobieDestroyerOrWorlds but snapped after being abused by everyone]], and is scheming with her EvilMatriarch to assassinate Sanji and his entire family at the wedding in an effort to seize Sanji's family's assets.]] Her skills as a chef, while unrelated to her evilness, are genuine though: Luffy and Chopper voraciously consumed a chocolate project of hers, which she enjoyed witnessing. [[spoiler: And yet she cannot bring herself to kill Sanji when he's genuinely kind ot her.]]
* Bianchi is an assassin from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' who intentionally uses her status as a LethalChef to full effect.
* Xellos from ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' invokes this trope intentionally when he creates a soup "potent enough to kill a Gold Dragon with one bite."
* Monsieur Goan in the ''Anime/{{Kirby|of the Stars}}'' anime.
* The villains of ''Manga/FightingFoodons''.
* In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Professor Kabayama is a rather good chef, but the ace monster in his deck is an evil one: a Fiend-Type Monster called Curry Majin Roux.
* Digitamamon and Vegiemon from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure''. The former does a HeelFaceTurn in the sequel series, but remains a bit of a JerkAss.
* There is the aptly-named Hell's Chef of ''Anime/GregoryHorrorShow'', given his tendency to try to kill people for smoking (as it dulls taste buds) and for rejecting his food even if they're not hungry.
* Manga/{{Toriko}}, being solely about over muscled men finding, fighting and eating delicious food, is bound to have these on the villain's side. Most of Gourmet Corporation consists of sinister chefs out to assassinate and sometimes even cook their victims, though except for a few holdouts, their allegiances switche to good or at least neutral when [[GreaterScopeVillain Neo]] becomes the antagonist.
* Subverted in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' Part 4 when Antonio "Tonio" Trussardi seems to be using his Italian cooking - [[spoiler:and Stand ability]] - to physically harm his customers. Anyone who eats his cooking, [[spoiler:such as Nijimura Okuyasu]], briefly seems to experience a nasty wound to some part of their body, only for that body part to be cured of an ailment. [[spoiler:Turns out he means well despite how creepy he is!]]
* In ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'', Erina Nakiri's ArchnemesisDad Azami intends to make his style of cooking the only type of cooking allowed in restaurants in Japan and possibly the entire world. His plan to do such a thing begins with [[spoiler:forcibly becoming the new dean of Totsuki Academy, Japan's premier cooking school, and expel anyone who doesn't comply with his techniques.]]
* In a Hoenn-era episode of the ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' anime "Hail to the Chef", Team Rocket run into a Sneasel serving as cook in a restaurant. Being a Dark-type Pokemon, it takes an instant dislike to Meowth, trading insults with him and them tainting his food, and then beating him soundly when he confronts it. Meowth, himself a bad guy and a Pokemon-napper, loathes the Sneasel enough that he actually objects when Jessie and James capture it.

* The heroine of ''ComicBook/HackSlash'' had one of these as her [[MyBelovedSmother mom]].
** There's also the minor villain Hibachi Devil, who looks like an evil chef, though is never shown doing anything related to cooking.
* Literature/CaptainUnderpants once fought cafeteria ladies who were aliens in disguise trying to turn the schoolchildren into zombies.
* Emeril Lagasse is portrayed as a merciless vegetable slasher in a ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' parody of his CookingShow, as Creator/StephenKing would have novelized it.
* ''ComicBook/TheBatmanAdventures'' #16 saw ComicBook/TheJoker kidnap an aspiring cartoonist and force him to illustrate his exploits for a series of comic books. One of his capers involved infiltrating a banquet and (while [[PaperThinDisguise "disguised"]] in a toque and a white smock) slipping paralytic Joker venom into the diners' soup. ("Poisonous? That would be the poison. [[FauxAffablyEvil It complements the cilantro nicely, don't you think?"]]) The poison didn't actually kill anyone who took a slurp of the soup, but it ''did'' leave them [[SlasherSmile compulsively grinning]] - and paralyzed long enough for Joker to saunter right up to all them and beat them senseless with a large mallet. (And, of course, Joker being [[MonsterClown who he is]], he did this all ForTheEvulz - and in this case also for publicity.)
* Kryppen the Poisoner in the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}: Devil's Asylum'' one-shot. He uses his [[MasterPoisoner knowledge of poisons]] and cooking to poison everyone in Arkham Asylum, planning to withhold the antidote until Batman murders an inmate.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Louis (the seafood chef who sings "Les Poissons" from ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'') is only evil insofar as aquatic animals are concerned. In context, that's evil enough. For bonus evil, he even has a [[DastardlyWhiplash twirly]] [[GoodHairEvilHair mustache.]]
** He does seem to have an unusual pleasure in chopping up the animals he cooks, though. But as he puts it: "Don't hurt, 'cause you're dead!"
* A similar chef can be seen for a few seconds (although in shadow) in the earlier animated Disney film ''Disney/TheAristocats'' during the scene where Duchess, Thomas O'Malley, the kittens, and the Gabble sisters run into Uncle Waldo.
* Skinner from ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'' isn't exactly dangerous, but he is greedy and sneaky and has an abysmal sense of business ethics.
* The BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/{{Trolls}}'' is the Bergen royal chef ([[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep named Chef]]) whose task is to prepare the trolls for getting eaten by the Bergens.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In the ''Film/{{Pusher}}'' trilogy, Milo the Serbian druglord. He fancies himself a great cook, and tries to feed people his creations, but they're not very good. In fact, he accidentally gives all his thugs [[LethalChef food poisoning]] in the third film, leaving him rather defenseless to a brewing gang war.
* Pamela Voorhees of the original ''[[Film/FridayThe13th1980 Friday the 13th]]'' was the cook of Camp Crystal Lake. Her villainy was in no way related to her cooking though, but involved [[KnifeNut knifing]], [[AnAxeToGrind axing]], and occasionally arrowing people to death in revenge for her son, who drowned in Crystal Lake because the counselors who were supposed to be watching him were [[DeathBySex getting it on instead]].
* The slasher film ''Film/TheCook'', where there's something a little off about the new foreign chef hired to work at a sorority house.
* In ''Film/{{Titus}}'' - a film adaptation of Shakespeare's ''Theatre/TitusAndronicus'' - Titus' role as a chef when he serves up Tamora's sons to her [[ImAHumanitarian in a pie]] is played up by having Creator/AnthonyHopkins dressed in the chef's traditional white smock and toque (while sporting a SlasherSmile and carrying [[AnAxeToGrind a large cleaver]]).
* ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheHams'': Dr. Animal Cannibal Pizza was locked up after processing human carcasses for his pizzas. Hell, he didn't even try to hide it--he'd just have a foot sticking out of the crust!
* The odd flick ''Panman'' is about a demonic Russian chef who kills people with the pots and pans that he wears on his head, hands, and feet.
* Carlos, the chef on the train in ''Film/BreakheartPass'', is part of the conspiracy and makes good use of his skill with knives when he attempts to kill Deakin during a TraintopBattle.

* Swelter from the ''Literature/{{Gormenghast}}'' novels (and TV mini-series). He exercises ruthless control over the kitchens, takes a perverse interest in the boys under his control, and hatches several plots against his enemies. He is also hinted to be [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalistic]].
* Long John Silver was the ship's cook in ''Literature/TreasureIsland'', as well as the Disney [[{{Steampunk}} space-and-steam]] ''Disney/TreasurePlanet''.
* Faquarl from ''Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy'' can transform into any shape he chooses, but is inexplicably fond of taking the form of a meat-cleaver wielding chef. Bartimaeus recalls that he's been doing this since they met in Babylon, circa 700 BC. It has something to do with all the sharp objects just lying around in kitchens.
* Harry Kressing's novel ''The Cook'' features the mysterious Conrad, who uses his cooking skills to win over and then control his victims.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has the ghost story of the Rat Cook of the Nightfort, who chopped up a visiting prince and fed him to his father in a pie. For breaking SacredHospitality, the gods turned him into a giant albino rat who eats his young.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' has an evil cafeteria lady; Buffy has to foil her plan to poison everyone.
* The Frenchman in ''Series/GoodEats'' may qualify for this.
* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'''s Soup Nazi? Well, not so much evil as oppressive to customers...
** Also, in "The Pie", the man who George competes with for the suit is revealed to be a chef at the end, and attempts to poison him with a piece of pie.
* Shockeye, from the ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E4TheTwoDoctors The Two Doctors]]". He's obsessed with finding out what things taste like, up to and including [[ImAHumanitarian human beings]], and "tenderises" one of the Doctor's companions - ignoring all the screaming as being completely irrelevant.
** And the Kandy Man from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E2TheHappinessPatrol The Happiness Patrol]]" who uses confectionery as a means of execution.
* An episode of the mini-series ''Series/ShakespeareReTold'' starred James [=McAvoy=] as a chef named Joe Macbeth.
* Those who watch ''Series/HellsKitchen'' might pick out several worthy contenders. Any example however pales in comparison to Amy's Baking Company in ''Series/KitchenNightmares,'' who between being proud of the evil acts they perform and brag about firing hundreds of employees [[KickTheDog (while forcing them not to work anywhere else)]] they are a RealLife example that makes most fictional ones look like saints.
** Amy seems to like to passively-aggressively "pay back" complaining customers -- when a pizza is returned undercooked, she deliberately burns it... when a customer complains a dish isn't seasoned enough, she intentionally [[EvilIsPetty makes it super spicy, hoping it will hurt him]].
* In one episode of ''Series/CriminalMinds'', the murderer the FBI team is looking for turns out to be the chef at a town's local community events. His favorite food to serve is chili, [[spoiler:whose meat is that of his victims]]. To the agents' horror, he does this solely for the pleasure of seeing other people unwittingly [[spoiler:[[IAmAHumanitarian eat other humans]]]]. A later episode had an increasingly insane food court chef who started sneaking pieces of his first victim into the meals that he served customers.

* In the DVD for the Volkerball tour, Till Lindemann of Music/{{Rammstein}} dresses up as one of these during ''[[ImAHumanitarian Mein Teil]]''. He then proceeds to "cook" [[TheChewToy Flake Lorenz]].
* The music video to "''Asylum''" by Music/{{Disturbed}} features a [[IAmAHumanitarian cannibalistic chef who keeps body parts in his fridge]]. While the protagonist is escaping from the doctors, the chef upon seeing him [[ChainsawGood chases him down with a chainsaw]], cuts him up in a GoryDiscretionShot and tosses his remains in a bloody cooking pot. The dish resulting is a stew made up of ambiguous red meats [[EyeScream garnished with an eyeball]]. [[spoiler:[[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness This entire situation turns out to be a delusion of the patient who's actually back in his padded cell...]] [[OrWasItADream except a second later]] he's served and then [[ForceFeeding force-fed]] the same stew by the doctors [[note]]Due to the nature of the video, this is probably also a delusion and he's actually being fed normal food while the chef he saw was likely a normal chef trying to help him[[/note]]]].
* In the music video of ''Bad Idea'' by Music/LemonDemon, one of the zombie {{Mook}}s appears to have been a chef.

* ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'': Mrs. Lovett encourages Sweeney Todd's RoaringRampageOfRevenge for [[ImAHumanitarian humanitarian purposes]].
* The Cat from ''Theatre/{{Honk}}'' neatly fits this trope, as, throughout the musical, he is trying to eat the main character, and, in the 1998 recording, was portrayed by Clive Rowe with a [[JustAStupidAccent thick French accent]].
* The Cook--also called Peter Lamb (but, like most characters in the play, mostly subject to EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep) in Creator/BertoltBrecht's ''Theatre/MotherCourageAndHerChildren'' is rather like this--fat, lecherous, fairly amoral and insensitive to his disturbed stepdaughter. Doesn't seem to put the women off, for some reason...

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh''
** The game has an old card called The Bistro Butcher, a Fiend-Type monster that seems to be this. (It's Japanese name is "Devil Chef".)
** The chef depicted on the ritual spell card "Hungry Burger Recipe" is probably this considering you have to sacrifice monsters to summon a evil burger with the card, with all of the implications that follows as to ''how'' this works.
** The much newer [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Number_59:_Crooked_Cook Number 59: crooked Cook]] might qualify, although the only indication is the name. (Evil or not, he doesn't seem the [[Series/IronChef type anyone would want to mess with]].)

* Plenty in the ''Mario'' series, but Chef Torte from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' comes to mind. He fights in a boss battle and (unknowingly) creates a giant [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere spellcasting wedding cake]].
* Large Fry in ''VideoGame/WarioLand'', a giant Cheep Cheep who happens to be one of the occasional {{Flunky Boss}}es who happen to be quite strong on their own (which is ''extremely'' annoying, since he never stops calling down his buddies. ''Ever'').
* Wildcat in ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireII'' is not only an evil chef, he's also ThatOneBoss.
* Chef Kawasaki was one of these in the ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' games, but not so much in the anime.
* The ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'' has the Wonder Chef who is good and will teach the party recipes (effects vary by game, but are usually along the lines of post-battle healing), but ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' had a short sidequest involving the Wonder Chef's arch-nemesis- the evil Dark Chef.
* The first Boss in ''[[Franchise/FinalFight Final Fight 2]]'' is a brute named Won-Won, who, [[AllThereInTheManual according to his description in the game's instructions]], is a sushi chef.
* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' has a literal Hell's Cook as one of the many characters you can get to join you. You fight his Super Powered Evil Side before his HeelFaceTurn.
* You have to defeat one of these in the game ''Videogame/AloneInTheDark2''.
* One of the [[TrailersAlwaysLie chapter previews]] for ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' mentions that Etna must resist "the dark side of cooking"
** In ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'', "Chefs" were a character class, with weaponized frying pans and cooking powers.
* Gourmand, one of the playable characters in ''VideoGame/PowerStone 2''. For whatever reason, his SuperMode involves donning a dinosaur/dragon costume that allows him to [[DinosaursAreDragons breathe fire]].
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has a few EvilChef monsters, such as the Knob Goblin Master Chef, the War Frat Grill Sergeant, and the War Hippy Baker.
** With a sufficiently deranged player and/or sufficiently large dose of AlternateCharacterInterpretation, the Pastamancer and Sauceror classes could fall under this trope as well.
* One of the more annoying monsters in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChronicles'' were the Tonberry Chefs of Moschet Manor, which were... well, Tonberries dressed like chefs and using gutting knives as weapons.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', beating Tonberries got you their Chef's Knives as well.
* The aptly-named multi-part ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' quest "Recipe for Disaster" involves the PC [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidentally freeing an evil food-based magician]] known as the Culinaromancer.
* The knife-throwing chefs in the ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'' series.
* In ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRenegade'', the player will sometimes be attacked in Nod bases by flamethrower-wielding chefs.
* Yodai [[LargeHam "Now we're BOILING!"]] Higashizawa of ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou''.
* The main villain of ''Videogame/{{Octodad}}'' is a sushi chef who's the only one to realize that the protagonist is an octopus masquerading as a human and believes him to be a sleeper agent for the inevitable fish uprising.
* The ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' series features two evil chefs: Larry Chiang from the first game, and Antoine Thomas from [[VideoGame/DeadRising2 the second game]]. Larry intends to turn an injured [[BigBad Carlito Keyes]] into mincemeat, and Antoine is attempting (and, it is heavily implied, has even succeeded) [[ImAHumanitarian to turn survivors into "the perfect dish"]].
* Umami of ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'' is {{Orochi}}'s head chef. At least until Charity was kidnapped and forced into the job. Instead of hatching a plan to help her escape and reclaim her position as head chef, she finds it more beneficial to [[ImAHumanitarian cook her]].
* The Black Dragon Group from ''VideoGame/SuikodenII''. Their leader Jinkai plans to use the Moon Bird Recipe for some sort of [[TakeOverTheWorld world domination plan]] through cooking. Though by the end of the Cook-Off minigames, he got better and was implied to have mended his ways.
* The Baby Dragon Chefs from ''VideoGame/RaymanOrigins'' and ''VideoGame/RaymanLegends''.
* ''VideoGame/DonDokoDon'' has a few enemies of this sort in the food-themed world, including ones that throw exploding cupcakes or candies.
* The murderer in Case 3 of ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations 2]]'', [[spoiler:Dane Gustavia]]. Even outside of the murdering, he's still a tremendous dick. [[spoiler:Especially to his own son]]. He at least has the decency to respect a WorthyOpponent in the cooking game, and his only regret was that said worthy opponent ended up being blamed for his crime when he was trying to frame someone else. [[spoiler:The man he killed [[AssholeVictim wasn't much better]], but also wasn't really a chef]].
* Knjakr of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' is a [[IAmAHumanitarian cannibal]] [[AxCrazy chef]], he lives in the Ratway and invites the others into his cell, only to attack the visitor and eat them.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', Dexter grows a beard to become rugged, and is believed to be his hero Action Hank. He later teams up with Action Hank to fight beard-themed villains, one of which is a chef with a beard that acts like a blade.
* Lunch Lady Ghost in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''.
* Grandma Stuffums from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' (who attacked with waves of living food such as liver and vegetables).
** Nurse Claiborne, who first appeared in the episode ''Operation: P.I.N.K.E.Y.E.'', was both this ''and'' a BattleAxeNurse. As a school nurse who seemed sweet and friendly, her apple crumbles were popular among the students, even Numbuh Two. Then, it turned out that she was behind the mystery epidemic of pinkeye going around the school, simply so she could use the eye crust from her patients as topping for the crumbles. She escaped at the end of the episode, but didn't learn her lesson. Her second appearance had her go into the cereal business [[spoiler: by making the sweet bits from Rainbow Monkey dolls. Including one of Numbuh 3's most prized dolls]]. Kuki was not amused.
*** On another note, Claiborne is one of the few villains who is regarded as being insane ''even in-universe'', which is hard to do, considering what the KND's RoguesGallery is like. Pretty much ''all'' of them would be labeled criminally insane if put into any remotely realistic context.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** In the 'Nightmare Cafeteria' segment of "Treehouse of Horror V", Lunchlady Doris becomes one of these when the faculty takes to [[ImAHumanitarian cooking the students]]. In the regular continuity, she's a LethalChef at worst.
** There is also a story where Homer becomes a food critic, and the other critics tell him he gives too many good reviews so he starts insulting everyone's food (not just restaurants, but Marge, too). This makes the restaurant owners angry and a bunch of them get together to kill him with a poisoned eclair at a food fair.
** Also, in the episode ''Yokel Chords'' Bart makes up one called Dark Stanley as a prank in order to get some lunch off the kids at school- according to him, Stanley was the school cook until he went crazy from being teased about never getting a college degree and created a new dish: Kids' Heads Soup.
* Chef from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' became one in his last appearance.
* Chef Hatchet from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' is probably better known as a LethalChef but he certainly gets a lot of enjoyment out of tormenting the campers.
* The Peculiar Purple Pieman of ''Franchise/StrawberryShortcake'' was one, although he was at best, an IneffectualSympatheticVillain. He was also a LethalChef, as his baking was pretty bad, to say the least. (He once tried to use his pies to [[StickySituation booby trap a road the way most cartoon villains would with glue]], and like usual, he [[HoistByHisOwnPetard failed in the typical way.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': Sizzlor! Who subjected Zim to torturous servitude in the bowels of the planet Foodcourtia.
* The Breadmaster in ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'', along with his sidekick Buttery Pat, had a recipe for evil.
* Titanium Chef and Oleander from ''WesternAnimation/SushiPack''. Titanium Chef even has an [[TomeOfEldritchLore evil recipe book]].
* TheButcher and Chuck the Evil Sandwich Man from ''WesternAnimation/WordGirl''.
* Piecemeal from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' is a criminally insane chef.
* Mother Mae-Eye from the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' episode [[AntagonistTitle of the same name]] was sort of a supervillain version of the WickedWitch in Literature/HanselAndGretel. She initially appeared as a grandmotherly old woman, but her true form was a hideous old hag with warty, green skin and three eyes. She was able to brainwash the Titans into thinking she was their mother using the magical - and addictive - pies she made, all the while planning to turn them into one, and when found out, was able to grow to giant size and use them as weapons. One curious thing about her was that she can somehow hide inside her own pies (so to enchant a victim who tries to eat it) and when defeated, is trapped in one until, again, someone tries to eat it.
* Gaston Gourmand from ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' also fits the trope - even though his evilness is limitzed to wanting to prepare food only of endangered animals.
* Corvax gets demoted from EvilChancellor into one in ''Muzzy Comes Back'', the sequel to ''WesternAnimation/MuzzyInGondoland''.

* People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ([=PETA=]) tends to portray any chef who cooks with meat in this manner. Just take a look at their ''VideoGame/CookingMamaMamaKillsAnimals'' Thanksgiving game.
* In his "A Date With Markiplier" series of ChooseYourOwnAdventure video's, ''{{Creator/Markiplier}}'' has a run in with one of these in the restaurant where he and his date first meet. Markiplier forgot his wallet and if his date chooses not to pay the bill for him, the chef abducts them both and (depending on the next choice) either abandons them in the desert, or locks them up in an abandoned building with the intent to make them [[IAmAHumanitarian make them the main course]].
