In Log Horizon, Meow's burger meat come from a real animal, but when the animal is killed, why doesn't its body turn into particles and disappear like other monsters?

  • Perhaps meat is taken from creatures that are not considered combat material, and so "defeating" them is not the same as killing monsters. – Hakase Jul 16 '16 at 14:21
  • I have watched something to do with HP and MP and spirit particle.. and if the meat is not rebirthed than it will be limited (much like on earth where we need farm) – LordSacha Jul 16 '16 at 14:23

It's true that the meat or other ingredients used in food are obtained by killing monsters. I must clear the assumption that the monsters don't turn into spirit energy and disappear.

They do disappear.

The meat that is used for cooking is actually an item drop from those monsters. Which means that only the monsters that drop such items can be used for cooking. In the first season of Log Horizon for instance, they started hunting Imperial Forest Boars for food. The meat obtained from that is actually an item drop. However, the wiki also says that a chef class player can also harvest the monster for more meat but how exactly is it done is not explained. It might be possible that the monster just drops more meat when a chef class player kills it.

    But how come that boy who try to impress marie bring large boar into the clan hall but meow said large boat taste too strong.. remember that? – LordSacha Jul 17 '16 at 14:47
  • Yeah I remember now and I am not sure about that one. The wiki does say that a chef can harvest more from a monster than what a normal drop offers. But I can't say for sure why it didn't disappear. The only thing that I can think of is that he might not have brought the monster full dead. I am just saying this because I have not so far seen any real phenomena which suggests that some monster won't disappear after dying. That's just how Log Horizon works. It might be that they just didn't think about it when they created that scene. – Alchemist Jul 17 '16 at 15:33

    I will accept this for now until further investigation xD – LordSacha Jul 17 '16 at 16:01
  • I understand what you are saying but to be really honest and I really appreciate your sense of question and curiosity. But it is the truth that sometimes, things are much more simpler than they seem. There's not always a well thought explanation behind everything. But this is all we know for now. There might be a better explanation. – Alchemist Jul 17 '16 at 18:01
