I'm personally EXTREMELY aggravated by the sound of loud chewing, and the quickest way to make me hate any character is to show them smacking their food down in silence, which oddly enough, isn't uncommon. I'm guessing it's a way to show the villains greed/gluttony or disregard for others. The best example of this is King Denethor in Lord of the Rings (films), gobbling down a sloppy mess of turkey and cranberries while his son is fighting a battle he cannot win. Though he isn't a villain per say, it is a very impactful moment that shows his resolute descent into madness. I'm not sure how to launch a trope or make it look pretty, but this topic has been bugging the hell out of me, and if anyone could help me find more examples or direct me to a pre-existing trope for this, I would be grateful.
