Watermelons were first discovered by David Livingstone who found them in the Kalahari Desert. Although only loosely considered a variant of the melon
they a very common variant of the fruit. They grow from a vine-like plants and can grow in vast numbers. By weight watermelons are roughly 6% sugar and 92% water.
In most games watermelons serve as easily destructible objects, although there are some exceptions. In Half-Life 2
watermelons are thought to be the fruit Lamarr
is fed on, presumably suitable for her because they bear resemblance to the human head. Super Mario Sunshine
involves a level in which Mario
must collect the largest watermelon possible to win a contest. The main protagonists of Persona 4
are quite fond of watermelon, especially Kanji Tatsumi
, who expresses his delight for the rare summer treat with great vigor.
