- "Eats random food items from a personal stash"
- ―Hungry's hover-over tip, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
status effect introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 5 that only affects players. Its icon is a fork and knife.
When a player is inflicted with Hungry, they become uncontrollable and will spend their turns eating random Food items; as the tooltip points out, this item is from a 'personal stash' and won't consume any items from the players' inventory. Hungry cannot be removed by cleansing items or spells.
The exact chances for each item are: 5/30 chance of Raspberries, 4/30 chance of Banana, 2/30 chance of Garlic, 2/30 chance of Pumpkin and 1/30 chance each for all other food items. The list of food to be picked does not include Pretzels, Cupcakes, Coffee or Espresso, but otherwise has all food items, including rare foods like Chili or Pizza.
The consumed food will always be single-target, even if using it normally would affect all players.
Hungry's behavior takes priority over both Confuse and Berserk. Inflicting Stuffed on a Hungry player will remove the status with one exception: the Stuffed effect inflicted by Squid-type enemies on death will not remove Hungry. If a player is inflicted with both Hungry and Stuffed, Hungry takes priority.
