Eating usually takes a while in Real Life
. Even small food can take a while to be eaten. However, in Video Games
, this is not the case. While normally they won't show the eating animation, in some cases they will show the character eating... but they do so in a ridiculously fast manner that you wonder how they did not choke from their food.
Not to be confused with Big Eater
. This trope is about making eating animation as fast as possible to accommodate gameplay, not a character trait.
Needs a Better Description
and Needs a Better Title
- Super Mario RPG and Mario & Luigi involve eating huge mushrooms by simply... tossing them up in the air and swallowing them up.
- In various Kirby games, the titular character just swallows everything, without even chewing! Justified that it seems to be his ability.
- In Monster Hunter games, eating meat simply involves gnawing the whole food without prejudice until the item vanishes.
- In Disaster: Day of Crisis, Ray gobbles up food in a matter of minutes - even huge hamburgers! He can also gulp down a huge amount of liquid in a matter of minutes!
