** An early two-parter in [[Anime/YuGiOhArcV]] took this trope quite literally when Yuya faced a Duelist who was not only a cooking prodigy, but also used monsters that stuffed his monsters full to bursting. No, really.

* An event in the ''Manga/BlackButler'' manga, in which the title BattleButler Sebastian will face FunnyForeigner Battle Butler Agni in a curry competition. [[spoiler:Slightly unfair as Agni can enhance the taste of curry ''just by touching the ingridients'' while demon Sebastian finds human food (at least desserts) distasteful.]] Also happens in the anime, three quarters into the first season. As is common with anime events, much of it is changed; for starters, Agni is simply exceptionally skilled at picking the spices to make the best curry, while Sebastian lacks the disinterest in human food of his manga counterpart. In both cases, Sebastian ultimately wins with two innovations; adding chocolate to his curry (which Agni notes is a very valid ingredient, but it's a combination of spices most English wouldn't consider adding to their curries) and then turning his curry into curry buns. His cooking is so good it can actually counter the Kali Ma "demon spice".

* Shane Strickland and ACH's dance off prior to their match and the International Wrestling Cartel's Twelfth Super Indy Tournament.


** ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' also gets one of these, putting the party member of your choice up against [[LethalChef Flynn]] to earn cooking titles for your party members.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' also gets one of these, putting the party member of your choice up against [[LethalChef Flynn]] to earn cooking titles for your party members. That is, ''unless'' you choose Flynn himself as your representative, in which case he appears as chef "Noble Sparkles," facing off against his subordinate, Witcher.

Added DiffLines:

** The sequel ups this by having Parappa rap his way through learning how to be a fry cook, "romantic karate" lessons, a conversation with a guru ant, an assault course, hairstyling, an enchanted video game, [[spoiler:turning his EvilCounterpart to the side of good]], and finally performing another stage show.


* In ''Anime/PrincessTutu'', nearly everything is decided by ballet ([[CaptainObvious I bet you couldn't tell from the title]]). Many of the dances actually ''don't'' fall under this trope since they aren't duels, instead focusing on characters revealing their true feelings through dance. But there's several that ''do'', including any sword fight in the series (which usually mixes ballet moves with sword fighting), and the first season's finale where the titular MagicalGirl and her DarkMagicalGirl rival end up dancing to determine who gains control of the Prince.

* Chapter 96 of ''Manga/KaguyaSamaLoveIsWar'' has the student council having a fried rice cooking competition.


* The ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' sourcebook ''Swords at Dawn'' details the various types of duels the Courts use to resolve disputes, split along lines of Physical, Mental, Social, and Mystical. Sure, two members of the martial Summer Court could engage in a fist-fight to first blood... but they could also easily decide on a duel where each argues a case before an impartial judge and tries to make the best argument.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/EnsembleStars'', many disputes are settled with Live battles - that is, both units (or other groups, if this is a special non-graded competition) will perform a concert and the audience will use their light sticks to indicate which they liked better, with the winner being the one with the most votes. This isn't just an idle past-time either, but central to the characters' performance in school, and their ultimate careers.


* The ''WesternAnimation/BigHero6TheSeries'' episode "Food Fight" has Aunt Cass suspecting Hiro is involved in underground robot battles again, but when she tries to find out where they're being held, instead ''she'' gets involved in an underground cooking contest. And becomes their new champion.

Added DiffLines:

* Manny Delgado of ''Series/ModernFamily'' once mentioned that when his girlfriend's ex boyfriend came to visit, they engaged in a [[CockFight Chocolate Souffle bake off]]. Manny won and asserted his dominance over the ex, and let's just say the Souffle wasn't the only sweet brown dish the girl devoured that night. [[BaitAndSwitch Manny also made Molasses Cookies]]


** Speaking of Parappa, a Japanese commercial had him competing with ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' by playing this trope straight. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dhu3DCQPYVk It's delightfully amusing.]]
