*** Taken UpToEleven in the Impel Down arc, where he spends two days locked in a room fighting off Magellan's poison; when he finally succeeds, Ivankov and the other refugees have to throw him five days worth of food, which he devours in minutes. (As in, five days worth for the whole Newkama colony.) Justified, possibly, because fighting off the poison was hardly easy. (Ivanakov didn't expect him to survive, placing the - enhanced - chances at about 2%.)

** There was also the time at the end of the Alabasta arc that Tony and Zoro joined in on stuffing their faces. The entire crew was starving after their ordeal, so this was at least explainable. But Luffy still topped them all, to the point he stole food off other people's plates...until Usopp poured the juice from his [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce Tabasco Star]] onto a rice ball and let Luffy eat it, forcing him to pause [[FireBreathingDiner as he spewed flame]].

* Horo from ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'' doesn't wolf down an unrealistic amount of food like some of the other examples as fitting the more serious tone of the series, but she will eat herself sick if she's got enough apples and in the novels she loves cookies. She's had serious hangovers more than once, too. This is all because she doesn't know her limits to eating while in human form. Like many people often do sooner or later, she finds herself pushing to the limit of how far she can go just because she doesn't know when to stop. This behavior is justified InUniverse as a case of MyInstinctsAreShowing (as Horo explains, a wolf's instinct is to gorge herself on food when she has it, because she doesn't know when she'll get to eat again), and Lawrence theorises it might also be a case of ShapeshifterBaggage -- that is, Horo eats so much because her true form is a roughly elephant-sized wolf and she needs to support that body, not a mere petite human one.

* Saki in ''Manga/CorpsePrincess'' munches sweets at a rate that would put [[Manga/DeathNote L]] to shame.

* Chihiro's parents in ''Anime/SpiritedAway'' definitely count as this. They see a buffet, sit down and start stuffing their faces. When Chihiro returns a few minutes later they've eaten everything on the table and are about four times as big. And they've transformed into pigs. To be fair, it was ''magical'' food.

* Conan's friend Genta in ''Manga/DetectiveConan''.

to:

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan''.
**
Conan's friend Genta Kojima is quite portly for an elementary school kid, and he's often seen eating or complaining about how hungry he is.
** Also, more than one victim is pretty pudgy and a big eater. [[spoiler: Like the "Baumkuchen" case,
in ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. which a fat man is killed via being tricked into eating a piece of his favorite pastry... which had poison.]]

* Another Sakura: the one from ''Manga/AhMyBuddha''. She eats enough food to feed the whole temple, and yet never loses her great figure.

* Based on the [[AllThereInTheManual DVD booklets and supplementary manga]], growing mages experiencing TrainingFromHell in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' need to eat a lot to replenish energy and {{Mana}}. [[MagicKnight Belkan users]], in particular, burn plenty of calories. Thus, Subaru and Erio tend to really pile on the food during meal time.

* In ''Franchise/DragonBall'', the Saiyans and their half-human offspring are notorious {{Big Eater}}s. The funniest part is that the other characters always look on in shock no matter how many times they see it done. Though their reactions could be due to the eaters' less-than-proper table manners, since they all seem to snarf down the food as fast as possible. Goku doesn't even let being dead stop him from chowing down, to King Kai's eternal confusion. One character even commented that Goku seems to be able to eat more in one sitting than his stomach could logically hold. Though it's mostly played for laughs, the Saiyans might arguably be a case of JustifiedTrope when you consider just how many calories their bodies must burn with all that muscle, much less the fighting.

An extra bit of humor comes from the other characters' reactions to this; no matter how long they've known the eater in question and how many times they've seen the eater's voluminous consumption and [[TooHungryToBePolite awful table manners]], they never, ''ever'' get used to the ghastly display and always look on in dumbfounded shock.

** A nicer female example is the anime-only [[MeaningfulName Lily Ensotmach]], her appetite being the biggest reason for her quick report with Luffy. Justified because she's actually a giant who can assume human-size due to her ''Mini Mini no Mi'' Devil Fruit power.

Justified because she's actually a giant who can assume human-size due to her ''Mini Mini no Mi'' Devil Fruit power. She even uses a dinner fork as her weapon of choice, as she can cause anything she touches to grow and shrink along with her.
