The Maxim Tomato, or Maximum Tomato[1], is an item in the Kirby series that can heal Kirby's health entirely. It also appears as an item in every installment in the Super Smash Bros. series, also healing a larger amount of damage than normal food. In Super Smash Bros., if a character eats a Maxim Tomato, it heals them for 100% of damage. In any later games, however, the tomato only heals for 50% of damage.

Maxim Tomatoes cure 50 percentage points of your accumulated damage. Once you eat one, after a brief moment, your damage meter slowly drains the appropriate amount, regardless of whether or not you pick up another item right afterwards. In the Kirby series, these juicy, health-restoring items were a favorite of the pink hero.

When one of these appears in combat, rest assured there will be a race to see who can reach it first. It's a race of desperation between players who want to heal their damage and those who want to stop them from doing so. In the Kirby series, Maxim Tomatoes healed all damage.

A tomato marked with a large, black M. This is Kirby's favorite snack, and in the past it has fully restored Kirby's health. The ones that show up in Smash Bros. aren't from the same crop, though, and only heal 50 points of damage. That'll still help you in a fight–unless an enemy eats it first.
