The photos above are animal orbs with food-related functions.

Food is an item that can restore the player's health meter. They can be found throughout the game by destroying objects such as grass or statues, by opening chests, or by defeating enemies, among other methods. The amount of life gained from a food item is affected by the character's total amount of HP and by the level of the Defense stat.

Food is also the main game mechanic of All You Can Quaff, a side mode centered around speed eating.

How to Obtain

Food can be found in a variety of places throughout the Kingdom:

  • Enemies sometimes drop food when killed.
  • Food can appear by destroying breakable objects (e.g. mushrooms, chests). These objects are scripted and will always spawn a particular food item when destroyed.
  • Food can sometimes be found by cutting sections of grass with your weapon.
  • Owlet can retrieve food from trees.
  • Hawkster can retrieve food from fallen enemies.
  • Zebra can find food in grassy areas.
  • The Painter will spit out several pieces of food after being defeated in Normal Mode (he will spit Health Potions too on Insane Mode).
