List of fictional vegetarian characters

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of fictional characters that either self-identify as vegetarian or have been identified by outside parties to be vegetarian. Listed characters are either protagonists and recurring characters. Some scholars have argued that mass media serves as a "source of information for individuals" interested in vegetarianism or veganism,[1] while there are "increasing social sanctions against eating meat."[2][3] Even so, there are lingering stereotypes of vegans and vegetarians in the same media,[4][5][6] with journalist Farhad Manjoo writing in August 2019 that it is "still widely acceptable to make fun of vegans."[7]

The names are organized alphabetically by surname (i.e. last name), or by single name if the character does not have a surname. If more than two characters are in one entry, the last name of the first character is used.
