The World Ends With You

Rules[]

Food provides permanent bonus to stats. The table below shows the items available in the game in order, showing:

  • The food (or drink) item and location;
  • The cost in Yen. Note that all characters in the party must eat at the same time (although they do not need to eat the same food) so the total cost of eating food is higher than the listed cost for a single item.
  • The number of calories costumed. This determines how much the food fills the Fullness bar.
  • The bonus given to each stat.
  • The efficiency with which the food provides each stat in terms of Yen and Cal.

Fullness[]

The Fullness bar, represented by the battery at the top right of the screen, limits how much food you can eat in a given period. The bar's capacity is equivalent to 1000 calories per party member, and it is reduced by 100 calories per party member per battle or reduction.

You can eat freely as long as the bar does not exceed 100%. You can also raise the bar over 100% by eating a single meal that raises it that high. This will cause the bar to flash red, and you then cannot eat anything at all until you reduce the Fullness bar all the way to zero, including the amount in excess of 100% (whereas, had you stayed below 100%, you would only need it to have reduced enough to accommodate the calories of the new food).

When the fullness bar is empty, moving close to a restaurant while moving around the UG will cause a conversation to play out in which a random character says they're hungry. However, there is no penalty or reduction in strength for leaving the fullness bar empty for any length of time, other than that you are missing out on stat gains that could have been available to you.

There is also no benefit to filling or overfilling the fullness bar; so foods that make you fuller are worse, not better.

When playing Party in the 'Buya (Another Day), exceptional rules apply: the fullness bar's capacity becomes 7000 even though there are only 6 characters in the party. Using Chapter Select to change to a different day will restore the bar's normal capacity, potentially making Fullness jump over 100% where it was not before, but the penalty for overeating (i.e. having to wait for the bar to reach 0% before eating again) will not be applied.

Tasty Bonus[]

Each character will react to each food in one of three ways when it is assigned to them on the shop screen: negative, neutral or positive. If a character eats a food they have a positive reaction to, they have a chance of gaining a "tasty bonus" to a randomly selected stat in addition to the food's own stat bonus. An item in the Social Network can increase the value of the Tasty Bonus. This provides another reason to eat lighter foods, as eating multiple times increases the chance of one or more of those times triggering a Tasty Bonus, and adds the potential of gaining several.

Other than there being no chance of a Tasty Bonus, there is no penalty for having characters eat food they react negatively to. Unlike the original TWEWY, combinations of food do not affect the Groove meter.

Internally, there are three levels of positive reaction, which affect the chance of getting a Tasty Bonus. These are not distinguished on the game screen. The most important of these is the highest level, which allows the food to give a Tasty Bonus to Drop Rate; this is not available any other way, and is global for the whole party. These foods are as follows for each party member:

Analysis[]

Optimal foods[]

The following foods are the cheapest (least Yen) or lightest (least Cal and therefore can be eaten multiple times in less battles) for increasing particular stats. Note that alternatives are provided for Style since the Muscat Grape Crepe only becomes available late in the game. Underlined items have to be unlocked via Bon Appetit in the Social Network.

Stat Lightest Cheapest
HP Freedom Fries / Salmon Onigiri Salmon Onigiri
Atk Hachiko Blend Fried Chicken / Spicy Miso Ramen
Def Ice Cold Brew Superhero Soda
Style Ruby Chocolate Delight / Muscat Grape Crepe / Air in a Can Mango Boba Latte / Muscat Grape Crepe

Optimizing Substitutions[]

The following foods should be avoided, because combinations of other foods give the same stats at less yen and calories. For example, Chicken Soup Curry costs 1480 yen and 960 calories for 10/4/0/2. The combination Berry Blend Tea, Pickled Plum Onigiri, Salmon Onigiri and Pani Puri Plate together costs only 1475 yen and 930 calories for the same stats. While the saving is small in the case, it can add up, and it is more significant in other cases.

  • Chicken Soup Curry: Berry Blend Tea, Pickled Plum Onigiri, Salmon Onigiri and Pani Puri Plate.
  • Justice Burger: Superhero Soda, 2x Fried Chicken.
  • Sinful Noodles: Cheesy Champion, Fried Chicken, Acai Smoothie.
  • Triple Matcha Parfait: Cafe au Lait, Freedom Fries, Superhero Soda.
  • Mango Shaved Ice: Superhero Soda, Creamy Berry Shaved Ice.
  • Rotisserie Chicken: Freedom Fries, Chocolate Soft Serve.
  • Roasted Tuna Head: Avocado Toast, 2x Veggie Soul Special.
  • Matsuzaka Beef Bowl: Hachiko Blend, 2x Pickled Plum Onigiri, Fried Chicken.
  • Hokkaido Bounty Bowl: Salmon Onigiri, Potato Chips, Veggie Soul Special.
  • Tokyo Roast Beef Bowl: 2x Freedom Fries, Acai Smoothie.
  • Dandan Noodles: Spicy Verde Tacos, Fried Chicken.
  • Shoyu Ramen: Hearty Beef Tacos, 2x Pickled Plum Onigiri.
  • Banana Leaf Banquet: Ice Cold Brew, Fried Chicken, Banana Tigim.
  • Masala Dosa: Fried Chicken, Cheesy Corndog.
  • Chicken Curry: Freedom Fries, 2x Fried Chicken.
  • Fish Curry: Cheesy Champion, Freedom Fries.

Suboptimal items[]

The following foods are, both yen-for-yen and cal-for-cal, less efficient than other single foods at delivering stats. This does not mean that they are cheaper or lighter; only that they deliver a higher ratio of stats for yen and cals. (Eg, if you can get 1 gold coin for $10 or a million gold coins for $1000, the million gold coins is not cheaper overall but is cheaper per gold coin.) It may be necessary to use them if you are short on yen or calorie space.

  • Green Smoothie: worse than Hachiko Blend.
  • Cafe Au Lait: worse than Ruby Chocolate Delight, Dry Aged Beef Stake, Ladies' Night Parfait, Air in a Can and Muscat Grape Crepe.
  • Hokkaido Bounty Bowl: worse than SKO Sandwich.
  • Orange Tea Fizz: worse than Spicy Verde Tacos, Takoyaki Tray, Chocolate Soft Serve, Topsy Turvy Noodles, Dark Dandan Noodles, Super Spicy Tacos, Holy Mole Tacos, and Dark Chocolate Dream.
  • Green Smoothie: worse than Orange Tea, Acai Smoothie, Takoyaki Tray, Spicy Miso Ramen and Pani Puri Plate.
  • Freedom Fries: worse than Salmon Onigiri.
  • Pickled Plum Onigiri: worse than Salmon Onigiri.
  • Hero Hamburger: worse than Between-Act Bento.
  • Rotisserie Chicken: worse than Fried Chicken.
  • Chicken Curry: worse than Fried Chicken.
  • Triple Macha Parfait: worse than Creamy Matcha Anmitsu and Fruit Cocktail.

Trivia[]

  • Many of the food shops in NEO: The World Ends with You correspond to real-life food shops in Shibuya.
    • Hachiko Café is in the exact location of a Starbucks at the Scramble Crossing.
    • There is no restaurant at the exact location of Justice Burger, but a short way down Center Street, there is a smaller junction with a McDonald's in the same relative position.
    • The park adjacent to Takeshita Street is not present in real life, but Cutie☆Pies is probably a reference to Angel Heart, a Crepe shop in the same area.
    • Bubblevision corresponds to Gong Cha, a bubble tea shop on Spain Hill, but the former is slightly further up Spain Hill in-game than the latter actually is in real life. Bubblevision is placed where the real life Bio Café, an organic café, is located.
