The Maxim Tomato is an item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl that originates from the Kirby series. It heals 50% when eaten. Maxim Tomatos have a huge "M" on them. They aren't big items though but are bigger than Screw Attacks and Franklin Badges. Maxim Tomatoes can come from defeated enemies especially Bucculuses in The Subspace Emissary. Maxim Tomatoes also appear as items in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. In this game, they are a type of Food but are much rarer than other foods in the game. Maxim Tomatoes appear in a large red box with a Maxim Tomato icon on it, otherwise known as the Maxim Tomato Box. This box can be held and tossed, however, when held the player cannot float or fly. The same goes for holding a Key, Candle, French Horn, Crystal, Fireworks Bomb, or Fireworks Cannon. When the Maxim Tomato is released from the box by destroying it with attacks, it can be eaten to heal 100% of the player's health. Some Maxim Tomatoes can also be found in the game hidden and not inside a Maxim Tomato Box. A similar item to the Maxim Tomato known as the Metamato appears in the introductory custcene of Kirby's Epic Yarn.
