Wanda herself gives her rations to Jillian and is never penalized for it, despite the fact the only way she can get food is suposedly by ration pop ups. Twolls can regenerate in an extreme situation. But point is, altough we have several examples of celeratory feasts and snacks, we have none of units ever starving.
Says common sense.
Common sense is for the weak in Erfworld, otherwise Hamster wouldnt have turned an utter defeat of his forces into an air assault by harvesting his own army.
The idea that they lack internal fluids is nonsense, blood cannot circulate
if it doesn't exist, note also Wanda's tears. Erfworlds obviously have internal cavities else they wouldn't be able to breath or eat. If Wanda (or some other girl) was somehow able to avoid the start of Turn resets (perhaps by being passed from Side to Side three or four times a day) there's no reason to think she wouldn't start to cycle.
There's something Erfworlders call "blood" I'll admit that. But considering it doesn't flow out when you cut/impale someone multiple times, then it isn't anything even remotely close to our notion of blood. Eating is no reason for cavities, since they live in a world where stuff just pops in and out of existence all the time. Plus when they're cut in half, we don't see empty cavities on them.

Again it's not only magic. Food pops in your table while upkeep and wastes disintegrate whitout a trace. Lost an eye? All healed up by morning, whitout any need of extra nutrients to replace lost stuff.
Whispri wrote:As far as aging goes, I will point out that ten thousand Turns would be less than thirty years and we have no Units confirmed to be even that old. It's true that Wanda has skipped the occasional meal on screen, but one missed meal does not result in instant starvation. And the idea that she felt no hunger as a result or indeed, failed to hit the larder (seriously, how on Erf can you claim she can only get food by popping it?) are entirely your inventions.
Where else are they geting the larder food again? Anyone actually working those fields? No farmers, no merchants, only soldiers and rulers and mages and monsters. Even wildlife literally pops out of nowhere.
Twolls do not regenerate, that special has long since been Retconjured
away. And as for the lack of starvation, when have we ever seen Units run out of food? It's never happened and it may be impossilbe for it to happen. But why would they be provided with food if they didn't need it? And why would people eat at any other time, as they so often have, if they only hungered at the start of Turn?
For the same reason they have sex despite being unable to produce children. It gives them pleasure. But thanks for pointing out that retcon.

They can't reproduce naturally, when they're cut they don't bleed, they don't age, they're basically animated toys with wills of their own (in diferent degrees, with basic troopers being almost single-minded and the rulers and top units being able for human-level philosophy and conspiration).
EDIT:Main point is, there's no correlation to the energy and matter you expend in a day and the food you consume in Erfworld. Wheterver you were just lazing around or fought a series of massive battles and lost half your body, a base meal will get you trough for the whole turn, regardless of whatever you did that turn.
