Eating is an activity that we all must engage in. We do it in the morning, afternoon and night. Hell, sometimes we snack simply because we are bored. No matter your reason eaten is both a vital and pleasurable experience. This has been made extremely obvious by several anime series. Both male and female characters are usually portrayed as gorging themselves on monstrous quantities of food. There are humans that can eat large quantities of food but even the worst anime food binges would put real humans to shame.
Nevertheless today we are going to check out some characters that simply can’t pass up a meal. I’m sure many of you will resonate with these characters so I of course will include links to their cosplays. Feel free to snag them for your next convention now that they are a thing again. If you love this blog post feel free to leave a comment below as I would love to know your thoughts on some of these characters. So without further ado, let’s leap into 10 of the best cosplays for foodies.
You already knew Goku was making the list as this character is always shown eating ridiculous quantities of food. The average human needs 2000 to 2500 calories. But the most elite among us can burn through a whopping 5000 calories. I have no idea how many calories are needed to transform into a Super Saiyan but I’m guessing it’s well over 2500. And this is just for his basic transformation. We haven’t factored in flight, other forms and Ki blasts. After all of this is done I can understand why Goku eats so much. The guy must be burning well over 20000 calories per fight.
Another character that you knew was going to make the list was Luffy from one piece. Unlike Goku who has been seen eating rice and beans, Luffy lives on a diet consisting exclusively of meat. Sure every now and then we have seen him take a few bites of other things but they pale in comparison to the quantity of meat he eats. Luffy has put himself in extreme danger just to get a particular meal. I would love to see a Luffy cosplay where he shows off his fat form or simply walks around conventions with a giant piece of meat. Maybe food trucks could use this concept as some form of advertising.
Sasha Makes her way into the number 3 spot and is the first woman on the list. Ms. Braus is from the series attack on titan which unfortunately concluded this year. She is one of the elite members of the Scout regime and has no trouble taking down titans or stealing from her commanding officers. It’s amazing that anyone could have an appetite after witnessing the atrocities that have taken place in this series. I guess she simply separates the two in her mind or needs to replace the calories after fighting titans. Sure she’s not burning as much as Goku or Luffy which have superhuman abilities but I’m sure her calorie burning game is up there.
C.C. is nowhere near as gluttonous as the other characters on this list but her appetite for pizza is insatiable. She is constantly seen eating Pizza Hut which oddly enough sponsored this anime. Since con-goers rarely have time to cook themselves a decent meal cosplaying as C.C. is the perfect excuse to snack as you walk around the convention floor. No one will question your commitment to the character if you are spotted with a full Pizza Hut box everywhere you go. You may even receive a free one if you explain to the workers why pizza is a vital part of your cosplay.
We could not make this list without adding Mako Mankanshoku. I know Kill La Kill is a bit dated but that doesn’t mean we can simply write off Mako’s amazing eating capabilities. The only conclusion I have been able to draw is that Mako burns a ton of calories when shes explaining things. I mean she really goes above and beyond when letting others know exactly what took place. In some of the scenes, she can be seen eating a raw egg. This explains her amazing fighting capabilities once she finally receives her Goku uniform.
You may be wondering who this character is and that’s because in English we know him as No-Face. That’s right, the mysterious mask-wearing character from spirited away is actually a glutton. Since Spirited away like all Studio Ghibli films is a standalone film, we never get to really see the extent of No-faces appetite. But based on the short clips we did see in the movie I can only imagine that he would easily put a buffet out of business. Side note, if your curious, there is a YouTube tutorial on how to make the amazing feast you saw in the film. Definitely check it out so you can properly get the fullest use out of this cosplay.
Who would have thought that literal gods and angels would enjoy spending their free time snacking? I mean, you would think that these two have so much more to do or could actually be doing good with their power but instead, the decided eating takes priority. Has anyone else ever wondered what the rest of the universe is up to while these two are lounging around on earth? Regardless I would love to see a Whis and Beerus walking around a convention challenging people for their food. This would make for a great cosplay skit.
How could we pass up a guy that’s named Fat Gum. There are tons of heroes within the My Hero Academia universe and few have powers as awesome as fat gum. Fat gum has the ability to adhere objects to his body. I haven’t read the manga but assuming to get to his size he has to have eaten a ton of food. Unlike several other characters on the list, Fat Gum has to eat tons of food in order to maintain his quirks ability. So, unlike eating to recover or power up for a fight, he has to eat to remain a badass.
Choji has been with us for a long time and has consistently been seen both enjoying and eating a decent amount of food. He is similar to fat gum in capabilities. Fat Gum focuses on fat while choji focuses on calories. Specifically, he turns calories into chakra. You know that crazy energy the shinobi use to make the impossible possible. Even if you guys do not decide to do a Choji cosplay, you certainly need to eat yourself some Korean barbecue. This is my favorite food and always gets eaten at nearly every con I attend. So long story short, cosplay as choji, eat Korean BBQ and be great.
Last but not least we have Natsu Dragneel. Another series that has ended but Natsu Dragneel was the best at both fighting and of course eating. But unlike every other character on this list, Natsu can eat fire. That’s right you heard me FIRE. I wonder if it’s possible for him to eat raw food and then internally cook it by eating fire. Hmm, that’s something I need to look into. Anyways, Natsu is drawn in a fat form like many other characters on this list showing his love for food. If the creators take time to draw this “fat” form then you know eating is a main part of the character’s daily routine. Why else would they waste their time when they could instead be creating more filler episodes right? LOL
There are so many characters that love eating throughout the anime world I couldn’t possibly include them all on this list. But hopefully this list gives you a few ideas for characters that can fully embrace that food relationship we all have. Thanks so much for checking out my website.
