Food (たべもの) is a set of multiple recovering items that first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Though it does not appear in the original Super Smash Flash, it does appear in the reboot, Super Smash Flash 2.

Overview

Food tend to regularly appear on the stages, and due to the small rate of healing they have, they appear very commonly, usually spawned in great numbers after opening a Party Ball. They recover about 1-5% of damage, though there is food capable of recovering about 10%.

Mr. Game & Watch has the ability to spawn food himself if he successfully connects a #7 with his side special move, Judge. A subtle difference between the food spawned by Mr. Game & Watch in SSF2 from the Super Smash Bros. games (aside the food no longer being restricted to be only an apple) is that for each character hit, a different piece of food will appear instead of only one, this means if Mr. Game & Watch is able to strike all the opponents at once with his hammer, up to three different food variants will be spawned. This may proved to be an advantage and disadvantage at the same time for Mr. Game & Watch as he may be able to collect all the dropped food after launching the opponents but also unaffected characters may be able to collect the food instead during Mr. Game & Watch's freeze frames.

Food may also be considered a stage element that appears outside the common item spawnage. Only three stages are able to dispense food in the game: Yoshi's Island (64), Yoshi's Story and Smashville (coincidentally, all are past stages). These stages distribute food in a similar manner: it is carried towards the stage by something and characters have to attack the carrier so the food may be dropped and consumed. In Yoshi's Island (64) and Yoshi's Story, the food is carried by flying Shy Guys whereas in Smashville it is carried by floating balloons. Shy Guys usually come in great numbers, so the food droppage may be greater compared to Smashville. where most of the time, only a single balloon will appear at the time. Disabling food with the item switch removes the food from the carriers, who will be still coming to the stage despite not carrying anything.

Delibird is also able drop food thanks to his move Present. Delibird indiscriminately launches food out of his tail sack so everyone may be able to collect the goods, even by the characters who did not release it, though they have to be careful as Delibird may drop Rocket Bombs as well.

Origin

Food as healing object is a very common staple in videogames. Games from the Yoshi and the Kirby have a strong focus on food items and being a gluttonous character is a trait of their respective protagonists. For instance, in Yoshi's Story, Yoshi has to eat a set of 30 fruits in order to complete a level, eating fruit invariably healed Yoshi and replenished his life meter. However, the concept of healing food in the Super Smash Bros. series, as well as SSF2, is more similar to how it is applied to the Kirby games. Beginning with Kirby Super Star, there is common food scattered across levels that acts a low-recovery items when Kirby eats it. Several food items are very similar between Kirby Super Star and SSF2 as direct result of this.

Trivia

  • As a small easter egg, some food variants are a references originating from other video game franchises. These include a Yoshi Cookie from Yoshi, a bottle of Lon Lon Milk from The Legend of Zelda, a Rare Candy from Pokémon, a sea-salt ice cream from KINGDOM HEARTS and a bowl of ramen from Naruto.
    • The lollipop resembles the Invincible Candy from Kirby but it nonetheless looks different.
    • The same goes for the meat, as it is similar to the meat from One Piece. However, meat of with this appearance is a common sight in many mangas and animes, not restrcited only to One Piece.
    • The design of the cup for the regular and small french fries resembles the real-life cups used by fast-food restaurant chain, McDonald's. The regular one parodies the famous "Golden Arches" M logo of the company by mimicking it with the MG fist logo; the smaller one has the same red-colored cup design albeit with out the "Golden Arches".
    • Given its appearance, the doughnut resembles Homer Simpson's favourite doughnut variant from the animated TV series, The Simpsons.
    • There used to be other food references that have been removed as of the Beta version, these include a Cheri Berry from Pokémon, an Energy Capsule from Mega Man and even a Pork Chop from the Minecraft franchise.
