* At Smackdown in Iraq, John Cena rapped about his opponent Wrestling/TheBigShow and how unlikely he was to lose to him because "This aint no pie eating contest!". Wrestling/KurtAngle would later make the same joke, proclaiming he would accept Big Show's challenge to ''any'' athletic competition, but warning him that pie eating contests did not count as athletic.

Wrestling/EddieGuerrero once gave Big Show diarrhea after conning him into eating a tainted burrito.

This is a character (who may or may not be fat) that regularly eats enough for an entire football team, often devastating the whole table -- and sometimes entire restaurants in their insatiable hunger. Combined with a speed-eating technique that makes food seem to vanish spontaneously from the plate. Primarily a [[ComedyTropes comedy trope]], a common sight gag with this kind of character in cartoons or anime is having piles upon piles of plates and bowls stack up as the character chows down. CutASliceTakeTheRest is another common joke involving this type of character.

[[BigFun Jolly la]][[BoisterousBruiser rge characters]], [[ExtremeOmnivore Extreme Omnivores]] and [[PersonalityPowers people with eating related powers]] tend to be Big Eaters by default. The FatComicRelief is a very common form of BigEater. However the best examples are people who will eat anything and everything, and are still very small.



Characterization wise it can be used to fulfill the needs of many RequiredSecondaryPowers adding depth to a trait commonly dismissed as a comedic quirk and make a character's abilities more believable. Characters with a HealingFactor, SuperSpeed, or the ability to [[VoluntaryShapeshifting change shape and size]], don't have to [[NoConservationOfEnergy flout]] the [[ShapeshifterBaggage laws of physics]], they can simply explain that the extra mass and energy come from their over the top eating binges. Magic users in general can use this trope and say that they cast from their calories, which would explain why mages are often rather thin characters (though obese wizards aren't unheard of).

In action series, this is often a trait belonging to the KidHero, BoisterousBruiser, or other types of [[HotBlooded high energy]] characters. Because many wild animals exhibit this in real life it's also a popular trait for WildChild and RaisedByWolves characters.



In comics and manga it's become common to make a [[TheComicallySerious Comically Serious]] character or {{Badass}} a Big Eater as a way to add a humorous quirk that doesn't take away from the character's seriousness. A common justification for a female big eater is that all the fat goes straight to her [[MostCommonSuperpower breasts]]. Consequently, female characters with big boobs are often big eaters. Occasionally they have BizarreTasteInFood or are ObsessedWithFood when not eating.

Another favorite joke when doing strenuous activity:
->'''Big Eater:''' All of this [name of the activity] makes me hungry!
->'''Another Character:''' ''Breathing'' makes you hungry.
