"If it looks good, eat it. And it all looks good to me."The Extreme Omnivore will eat anything out of hunger or curiosity, so long as it looks like food. And sometimes when it clearly doesn't. They don't fear the Lethal Chef, and you will never hear them ask "I Ate What?". In more realistic cases, he spits the bad stuff back out. In less realistic cases, he digests it with few ill consequences. A milder form of The Extreme Omnivore is a character who is willing to eat things that may be perfectly nutritious, but are considered unhygienic (e.g., it fell on the floor, or another character has been eating it), or taboo (e.g., insects, horseflesh). He may be indifferent to, or ignorant of, the social norms that keep most people from eating these things, or he may be from another culture or species where such things are accepted. Also likely to be a cannibal when the opportunity presents itself. Please note that instances of someone being forced to eat something disgusting or inappropriate isn't Extreme Omnivorosity. Likewise for unintentional ingestion. A true Extreme Omnivore has a long-term pattern of eating everything knowingly, willingly, and usually cheerfully. Compare Paste Eater. Also compare Bizarre Taste In Food. Horde of Alien Locusts can take this trope into an entire species. Extreme Omni Goat is a subtrope where this trope applies to goats.
