* Given how dark and violent ''WesternAnimation/Castlevania2017'' is, one might not expect to see much in the way of Easter eggs and references, but the series did an incredible job respecting the lore of the characters. The Belmont Library alone has an incredible amount of Easter eggs pertaining to the monsters of the series.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series always has tons of pre-war food (even in the first game, the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Great War]] happened almost 100 years ago ) that's still perfectly edible, including the inexplicably popular Nuka-Cola. ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]]'' work to subvert this somewhat, as eating pre-war food will still boost the player's health, but also inflict them with minor doses of radiation (and explicitly irradiated food that deals even more radiation when eaten can be found.) Lampshaded during "The Big Dig" quest in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' when you run across one of the Port-A-Diners that has an inexplicably well-preserved piece of 200-year-old pie in it.

* In the ''[[ComicBook/XenozoicTales Cadillac & Dinosaurs]]'' arcade game, you not only find pieces of meat inside steel drums, armor suits and wooden barrels but also salads, cakes and even sushi and boiled lobsters.

In at least a couple cases, there's no logical way random chicken wings and pizza could have gotten where they did. Also, mercilessly mocked by in-game dialogue.

Even those with no bandit presence to explain away the presence of food will still have consumables in them. Feel free to scarf down the half-dozen decades-old potatoes you find if you're low on health, your character won't know the difference. Though ''you'' might have sympathetic indigestion.

Not only do video game heroes have little problem fueling their HyperactiveMetabolism with food they find lying around on the floor, but even if that roast chicken had to have been sitting there for hundreds of years in someplace ''very'' unsanitary, it's still as fresh as if it just came out of the oven.

Games after ''Symphony'' had food items just sitting on the floor out in the open or dropped by monsters, including cartons of milk that should've gone bad even faster than the meat.

* In ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsOnline'' your character will usually eat prepared food, but even ignoring the fact that this food never spoils, the ingredients used to make it are usually found inside random boxes and barrels or sometimes laying on top of tables or hanging from walls for no reason, as the Provisioner skill line depends on materials only found this way. There's little reason to trust food made from poultry found hanging inside of a damp, earthen floor dungeon, but your character will only actually get sick [[CutsceneIncompetence during quests]].
* The presence of food in the apocalypse is explained in ''VideoGame/NexusClash'' by the fact that most of it is canned or preserved, or is fresh fruit that continues to grow in orchards. The only exception is Chunks of Salted Meat, but the fact that they're found in [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Stygia]] offers one very [[ImAHumanitarian easy explanation]].

* ''VideoGame/PixelDungeon'' downplays what food is found on dungeon levels. Rations of Food are commonly found, but it's established that these rations contain non-perishables. The presence of Pasties lying on the dungeon floor has no excuse, however.
* ''VideoGame/DungeonCrawl'' Has the player traversing a massive, sprawling, labyrinth, where loaves of bread, meat rations, pizzas, chokos, and various other foods are randomly strewn about the dungeon floors, however the only food type that can actually go bad are meats harvested from enemy corpses, [[ImAHumanitarian not a problem if you're a ghoul though]].

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' averts this for the most part, as Link will normally only find food in logical locations such as buying it from merchants, foraging in the wild, or raiding bokoblin camps. However, it gets played completely straight in [[VeryDefiniteFinalDungeon Hyrule Castle]], where the dining room has perfectly edible food on the tables despite the place having not only been abandoned for a century, but infested with monsters and [[MeatMoss Malice]].
* Parodied in ''VideoGame/StarTropics 2''. The protagonist uses TNT to blast a hole in a mine, searching for a gold nugget. Upon finding it, he realizes it's a chicken nugget (keep in mind this was in a cave that was completely sealed off before the TNT blast). The protagonist then eats the chicken nugget and says it's delicious!

Some games also include vendors you can buy food from among other items, making this trope less ridiculous.
