[[caption-width-right:241:[[LargeHam A Large Ham]] needs a large ham sandwich!]]

Tastes great, better filling! Sandwiches of one kind or another have been the {{Trademark Favorite Food}}s of many characters.

Occasionally characters may comment on its simplicity, use wacky ingredients, or [[DagwoodSandwich overstuff their sandwiches]], but it's all the same basic food item.

With the aid of a handy [[FourTermsFallacy logical fallacy]], one can prove that a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness: nothing is better than eternal happiness, and a ham sandwich is better than nothing.

Also see DagwoodSandwich. See also InherentlyFunnyWords, WastefulWishing, as a common part of that trope is the character wishing for a sandwich. When provided as a health item or powerup in videogames, see HyperactiveMetabolism and PowerUpFood.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'':
** One most-desired items among students in the Duel Academy cafeteria was the Golden Eggwich; only one could be prepared each day, seeing as a specially bred hen laid the egg necessary for it, only once per day. It was placed among various other identically wrapped sandwiches so that students could pick at random, and test their luck, something very essential to dueling. (Judai managed to "draw" it ten days in a row until the survivalist former student Taira Taizan started breaking in and getting them, leading to a confrontation between the two.

* ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''
** In ''Literature/MostlyHarmless'', Arthur has an existential crisis where, among other things, he faces the depressing fact that about the only thing he's any good at is making sandwiches. After Arthur's ship crash-lands on Lamuella, stranding him there among the bronze-age inhabitants, he ends up becoming a tribe's Sandwich Maker. The book spends three solid pages of a ten-page chapter describing how this is an [[SeriousBusiness exalted position]], and Arthur's unparalleled skill at making sandwiches is [[CrystalDragonJesus regarded as literally divine]], and he actually gets more respect than the village chief.

* ''Series/HomeImprovement'',
** Tim plugs [[LocalHangout Big Mike's Tavern]] on his show, which has a sandwich called a Stinky, which includes Limburger cheese, sauerkraut, Bermuda onion and hot mustard.

** Tim finds Al's sandwiches rather satisfying in one episode, even though they're "only" ham and cheese. (Of course, in the episode in question, they had been working on the hot rod a long time, and were pretty hungry.)

* Per Bob King:
-->''Sandwiches are beautiful,''
-->''Sandwiches are fine.''
-->''I like sandwiches, I eat them all the time;''
-->''I eat them for my supper and I eat them for my lunch;''
-->''If I had a hundred sandwiches, I'd eat them all at once.''

* The TrademarkFavoriteFood of Hobbes from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' is tuna sandwiches (Watterson established that fact in the very first daily strip of the comic).
** In one strip, Calvin asks Hobbes what he'd wish for if he could have anything in the world. Hobbes says, "A sandwich." Calvin accuses him of being unimaginative: ''he'd'' wish for "a trillion billion dollars, my own space shuttle, and a private continent!" Hobbes may not be all that creative, but at least he gets ''his'' wish.

In one strip, when he sits alone while watching the Little Red Haired Girl, he says "Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter like unrequited love!"
** In one week-long series of strips, Charlie Brown ran out of dog foot, so he made Snoopy a ''really'' big hoagie that took him the whole week to eat (which he finished on the strip that ran on Christmas Day, where he left the crumbs for the birds, using them to spell out "Merry Christmas"). In one of the six strips, he goaded the mean cat next door, saying that if he came near him again, "I'll hit you with my sandwich!" And in another one, he was dozing, and then heard footsteps, and then saw Woodstock when he opened his eyes. "I knew I heard someone walking on my sandwich!" he mused.
* NewspaperComics/{{Garfield}} makes a "dessertwitch" in [[https://garfield.com/comic/2016/08/27 this strip.]]

[[folder:Stand-Up Comedy]]
* Mike Wilmot had this bit at the Just for Laughs festival:
-->I think a fair way to judge any race of people is to try their sandwich. If you have a problem with the Lebanese, go get a chicken shawarma. Only sweet people make a good sandwich. If you have a problem with Jews, go down to Schwartz's Deli, get a smoked meat sandwich. The only problem you'll have with Jews after that is that you don't know enough of 'em. Now, the ''Chinese''... no sandwiches. That's all I'm sayin'.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The [[http://www.steamgames.com/tf2/heavy/sandvich.htm Sandvich]] in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' is an unlockable [[InsistentTerminology edible device]] for the Heavy. He must forsake having a secondary weapon to carry it, and must stand still and vulnerable for four seconds as he eats it with a hearty OM NOM NOM, but its delicious lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, meat and triangular slices of bread will [[HyperactiveMetabolism give him a healing boost of up to 300 HP]].
** He can also throw it to allies, and if he's killed, anyone else can pick it up for 50 HP, except for the Scout, who gets 75 HP because he's shown knocking out a Heavy for his Sandvich in his Meet the Team video. One of the Scout's [[BondOneLiner one-liners]] for killing the Heavy is: "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis I! Eat! Your! Sandwiches!]] [[Film/ThereWillBeBlood I eat 'em up]]!" Killing enough Scouts using the Natascha also alludes to Sandvich with the achievement title "Don't Touch Sandvich".
*** The Spy also get a domination line related to sandviches. "Your precious sandwich won't save you now, Fatty!"
** He can also get an achievement award for eating 100 of them. There used to be a bug in the game that let the player eat as many as he could, one after another, but that has since been fixed.
** Another edible device for the Heavy is the Buffalo Steak Sandvich which, when eaten, gives him a speed boost and turns all damage he gives and receives into mini-crits. However, the user is restricted to using melee weapons for the duration of the powerup. Of course, technically, this one isn't a sandwich, it's just steak. (Who needs bread?)
** "DON'T RUN! IS JUST '''[[LargeHam HAM]]'''!"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMfzUZNXRbE Meet The Sandvich!]]
** Some VideoGame/GarrysMod videos will take this gag even further, depicting the Heavy as being absolutely obsessed with sandwhiches to the point where he refuses to eat anything else.
** Subverted in ''PokerNightAtTheInventory''. The Heavy might express a desire for a sandwich, but when he mentions that it puts him on a killing rampage, [[Webcomic/PennyArcade Tycho]] just tells him to have a glass of water.
* The NES game ''DragonPower'', an old {{Macekre}} of the very first ''DragonBall'' home game, replaced Master Roshi's demand for underwear with one for sandwiches.
* ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim 2'' has the sandwich item, which bumps Jim's HP up to 200%.
** Not just any sandwich, it's a [[InherentlyFunnyWords chip butty]]; a British sandwich made with chips (fries) and butter/mayo.
* ''VisualNovel/{{Ever17}}''. All food the characters can find is chicken sandwiches. Moar chicken sandwiches, nothing but chicken sandwiches![[note]]And some hot-dogs.[[/note]]Subverted when the Kid finally gets sick of eating nothing but sandwiches.
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/MapleStory'' While the game has ''dozens'' of different kinds of PowerUpFood, the Sandwich (only available from the vendor in [=FriendStory=] isn't very remarkable, only restoring 800 MP. The Hamburger and Cheese Sandwich aren't much better, the first only recovering 400 HP, and the second (available only in New Leaf City) recovering 500 HP and MP and giving you a slight boost in Attack Power for ten minutes; in all three cases, the vendors who sells these has better stuff.
* ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen : Aliens Ate My Babysitter!'' has a titanic floral obstacle with snapjaws and the biting of the people of the OH FLAYVEN, and Blaskowitz has to find him a similar sized, being titanic, sandwich in order to feed him and get the past of the plant creature you know of the being.
** [[FridgeLogic An interesting side note]], Commander Keen calls it "the second biggest sandwich he's ever seen" once he picks it up. Just where ''did'' he see a bigger one?
* ''VideoGame/CastleCrashers'' has sandwiches as a powerup item, which [[HyperactiveMetabolism don't restore any health]], but instead make you [[StealthPun beefier]] for a short time.
* Village Bridge from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' has a mini-game where the player character receives orders from customers and delivers berry sandwiches to them for a local baker.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'':
** The game has a number of sandwich-based food items available, from the humble Spam Witch sammich (dropped by Spam Witches in the Vallyey of Rof'lm'fao) to the sandwich of the gods (available as a reward from [[BonusDungeon Fernswarthy's Basement]]).
** Players under the [[SelfImposedChallenge Avatar of Boris path]] can learn the skill "Demand Sandwich", because apparently Boris could demand sandwiches, "and somebody would do it, if somebody knew what was good for somebody". Should you become in tune with Boris enough (by learning all of his skills), you can permanently learn the skill "Request Sandwich" on completing the run, which doesn't have as high a success rate (because you aren't quite as... persuasive as Boris was), but can be used in almost any run.
** Players under the Avatar of Jarlsberg path, with access to the SupremeChef skills of the original Chef-Magus of the Kingdom of Loathing, can learn to prepare a variety of foods including no less than four sandwiches (immaculate grilled cheese, immaculate egg salad sandwich, the perfect sandwich, and the Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich).
** At the end of the [[ZombieApocalypse Zombie Slayer]] path, during which the player must subsist entirely on [[BrainFood brains]], the player, doubting that they'll ever be human again, is cured, and subsequently offered a ham sandwich by their nurse.
-->You've never tasted anything as delicious as that ham sandwich.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFight 3''. A sandwich pickup fills less of the health bar than even a bottle of cola, and is unquestionably the worst health pickup in the game.
* ''VideoGame/TheSims2'': Grilled cheese aspiration.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bik}}'': It's telling when this phrase is part of the tagline: "Eat some sandwiches and save the galaxy!" Indeed, the first ever task Ammut has is to find ingredients for a bologna sandwich and eat it, at which point we're treated to [[http://www.supergamedroid.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/BIK3-e1408091188161.png this]]. Only then can he address the issue of a fire aboard his ship. The game ends with Bik, Ammut, and Tatenen sitting down to eat more sandwiches before continuing their galactic adventures.

** In "Five Short Graybles," Princess Bubblegum uses various absurdly complex scientific and pseudo-magical procedures to create the greatest sandwich that has ever existed and will ever exist. Even better, one assumes, than the one Prizmo makes Jake in "Jake the Dog."
** Jake is really into making sandwiches - the one he got into "the zone" and made in "Time Sandwich" does look pretty great.
* The ever joyous and optimistic Mr Simmons on ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' is pushed over the edge when Harold eats his sandwich. Up until that point nothing else truly bothered him while all the kids caused him a hard time. However, [[spoiler: Harold makes him a new sandwich as a way of saying he's sorry, and all is forgiven]].
* In one ''WesternAnimation/USAcres'' segment of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', Orson starts a diner and offers free food for a month if he can't make an order. [[JerkAss Roy]] naturally takes him up on it, ordering several strange items, including an extremely specific sandwich that turns out to be a special of the diner. They finally get tripped up by an elephant foot sandwich with mustard ''because they're out of mustard''. (Or so Orson claimed.
