- May need to eat large amounts of food to maintain their energy unless they have Self-Sustenance.
- May age more rapidly than usual due to the speed of the metabolism causing telomeres shorten faster.
- Food may not suffice because the user's body digests faster than the food can settle, leading to starvation.
- Gluttony Inducement and Empowerment may take part as a side-effect.
