Food consists of a variety of items that can be picked up to replenish health. They first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee and later in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where they could be picked up by characters to decrease their damage percentage. These items were carried over to Kid Icarus: Uprising, where they restore the player character's health. They are most often found in Treasure Boxes, but can also be dropped by defeated enemies or found in the open. The amount of health they give depends on the real-life calorie value of the food.
"Any textbook will tell you that food found on the street can heal even the worst injuries. While these treats may not look like much, the restore energy immediately, usually in proportion to their calorie count."
