Any textbook will tell you that food found on the street can heal even the worst injuries.
— Idol description for Food, Kid Icarus: Uprising
"Floor ice cream gives you health!"
Pit, also from Kid Icarus: Uprising
"And seriously, doctors are millions of years from proving that potato chips, when ingested, immediately cure the concussive effects of being hit in the head with a lead pipe."
— Tim Rogers, The Best Games Of, Sort Of, The Decade
"If you've been shot up, you've got bullet wounds, you've been set on fire, and you're hiding behind a counter and you're like "Dude! There's a chocolate cake here!" Nomnomnom! And you eat it and you're like "I feel so much better! My bullet wounds are healed!"
"The end of Area 4 has a lot of different encounters. They're all very tough by Undertale standards. But you can win if you treat danger realistically: Carry a lot of food around and immediately eat some if anyone hits you."
