Big Meat

Meat, also called Pork Chop, Pot Roast, Werewolf Leg, or Beef Jerky in some games, is an item usually hidden in breakable blocks which can restore the player's health. Some games had large and small varieties of meat, which would restore different amounts of health.

Game specific informationEdit

Castlevania: Rondo of BloodEdit

Food in the Castlevania series became more varied after Rondo of Blood, in which Maria had a different set of food items (sweets) than Richter did (who continued to only eat meat).

Castlevania: Symphony of the NightEdit

Meat is the highest health-giving food type in Symphony of the Night. There are a couple of other items that give as much HP as meat though, including the Sushi (+100) and the Saturn-exclusive Delicious Meal (+75).

Castlevania LegendsEdit

Meat also appears in Castlevania Legends, which restores half of the player's health.

Castlevania: Portrait of RuinEdit

The New York Steak is a requirement for completing Wind's "Build Your Strength 2" quest. It can be found by breaking a ledge in the room before confronting the Creature or as a drop from a Gorgon. It restores HP +1,000, which makes it the best HP-restoring type of meat in the game.

Castlevania: Harmony of DespairEdit

In Harmony of Despair there are two kinds of meat. Small meats are common and give 29 HP (Meat Strip) or reduce HP by that amount (Rotten Meat). Large meats (Boneless Ham, Roast Beef, Tasty Meat) are three star items that give 100 more HP, and also give a CON and/or STR boost. Most other food items that contain some meat in them also increase CON or STR.

TriviaEdit

  • In most metroidvania games, Meat restores 29 HP. This references the word niku, or "meat" in Japanese. Likewise, the numbers "2 9" can also be read as niku in Japan.
Hidden Chicken Netflix
  • In the animated series, during the fight between Dracula and his son in the episode "For Love", a meat dish is hidden in a wall. This is surely a funny nod to the fact that the meat is always hidden in walls in most opus of the video game series.
  • In the game Dust: An Elysian Tail, there is a health recovering item called "Mysterious Wall Chicken", which as its name implies, is obtained by breaking certain walls in a nod to how similar items are often found in the Castlevania series hidden behind breakable walls.
