Is Poison Ivy A Vegetarian?

#1 Posted by CaptainCockblock (3672 posts) - - Show Bio

Ivy is an environmentalist, it's sort of her whole deal, but would she eat animals? If you were like Ivy, you'd probably look at a salad like a big ol' bowl of baby meat, so that's probably out of the question too. It's a legitimate question to wonder what Poison Ivy eats. If she's vegetarian, that both coincides and contrasts with her environmentalist viewpoint. However, if she refuses to eat plants and survives on an all meat diet, that's equally contradictory. Can anyone with even more time on their hands than me please shed some light here?

That's....actually a good question...does she even need to eat anymore? maybe she photosynthesizes

There's a BTAS clip of her and Harley eating a salad.

Which is hilariously hypocritical of her.

Would that make her a cannibal?

@The Stegman: Possibly.

@InnerVenom123: She's EVIL! I mean, more so than was originally implied.

@BlackArmor: Kinda.

Due to her physiology, she would either find nourishment from sunlight and water or probably from meat. There are plants that do eat meat.

@MTHarman: True. Maybe she eats flies.

...

Moving right along.

Well, technically, weeds eat plants and they ARE plants themselves, so probably not, but if she does she's "technically" not being hypocritical.

I would think that she gets her food and nourishment the same way plants do... Photosynthesis and water. I would think she would be solely a carnivore if she didn't get her nourishment through sunlight and water

Oh jeez, I never thought of that.... Maybe she eats only meat?

If a plant, for exaple, produces a fruit, Ivy would probably eat it because she wouldn`t eat the whole plant that way. But, maybe she photosynthezises a part of her food. I mean, she is a planthybrid.

This has to be the funniest question asked on cv.

#16 Posted by TheCannon (18732 posts) - - Show Bio

It's never been brought up, but I've never seen her eat meat.

#17 Posted by SpideyIvyDaredevilFan26 (6482 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm pretty sure she just photosynthisizes. Maybe she eats weeds?
