Original Thread: x

So... to put it plainly, Usagi eats like an elephant. Somehow, she is surprisingly slender and nimble (sometimes). 

Where does it all go? In my opinion, Usagi eats so much, because she expends too many calories as a sailor suited warrior of justice and because she expends so much energy using the Ginzuishou. I think it has something to do with the Ginzuishou, because the other senshi do not eat nearly as much as Usagi. 

Something similar is seen with other anime characters who expend a ton of energy while fighting or who have extraordinary powers. For example, Goku from Dragonball Z or Luffy from One-Piece.

If we rule out senshi powers, I'd just say that she eats a lot because she's a child growing up. High school kids eat a ton too, so it never seemed that extreme to me compared to stuff you see in shonen anime, where they have stacks of plates on a table.

If we do factor in beign a senshi, I'd say that's a good theorey. I'd also argue that it would apply to the other girls to a lesser degree, maybe in order of their raw abilities. Like, I can see Mercury being least affected because she tends to stick with less destructive attacks. But I bet after a finale or a really rough battle, all of them could eat a ton.

Ooo I like that theory actually.

But my body is like her too; it barely changes yet I'm hungry almost all of the time. Like eating three times a day isn't enough, I need snacks in between to keep me alive xD But my weight has been the same since like forever, it actually went down last time I checked so idk what's going on there. I figured it might be fast metabolism or something. I don't even exercise that much xD

I have to disagree with the high metabolism/teenagers eat a lot theory. While this could be true, I see a lot of things that point away from it. The Ginzuishou appears to take a serious physical drain to use - Queen Serenity has to sacrifice the last of her life to send the senshi to earth to be reborn, and just look at Usagi after fighting Pharaoh 90 when she's holding baby Hotaru:



Just handling something that powerful must take a physical toll - she's got to eat to make up for it!

No I definitely agree the whole needing power thing is a more plausible theory. I'm just offering the more "normal" possibility xD

I like that theory. It's really interesting and I never would've thought of it!

I wonder if she's a bit of a stress eater on top of the need for food because teenage growth spurts thing? I wouldn't be surprised since some of the battles she's forced to fight get brutal.

I really like the "Usagi eats so much because she needs the energy to fuel the Silver Crystal" theory. It's also probably because she likes food a lot too.

Why can't it be both theories? Usagi may very well have a high metabolism and needs to eat a lot and consume a lot of calories. In many animes or comic books, it's not uncommon for those who posse power to eat a lot in order to regenerate that power or maintain it.

I can't help but wonder if she uses the crystal a lot sub consciously, like to make people around her feel happy etc and it drains her, which is why she eats so much.

That would make sense, but did she eat that much when she was princess serenity? Or should I say did the queen eat that much, since the queen was the one in possession of the silver crystal at that time? Also doesn't chibiusa have her own silver crystal? Why doesn't she eat that much then? Let me know if this branches too far off topic, by the way.

Every person is different so I think how Crystals and powers affect their body is different. I think because the girls are connected to elements for the most part, they can draw energy from their elements. Usagi doesn't have that benefit.

Princess Serenity is also different from Usagi which means even though Usagi is a reincarnation of Princess Serenity, they are different people thus their metabolisms don't have to be identical.

I don't know if the Queen had to eat that much since they were ON the Moon and there were Prayer Chambers, so I have a theory that it was easier access to energy than it is for Usagi.
