The Especially Advantaged Talent Class (also EAT Class) is the unique and advanced curriculum held within Death Weapon Meister Academy. They're the more powerful students within the school.[1]


The E.A.T. curriculum, standing for Especially Advantaged Talent, which is the curriculum that involves the student to use their power to fight against evil. The last 10% of the student body make up and follow this curriculum.[1]

Special PrivilegesEdit

Unlike the NOT Class, they do gain special privileges. E.A.T. Class Meister and Weapons get to afford to live in actual custom apartments, enjoy special privileges like being able to ride on a moped illegally or without a license,[2] and most E.A.T. students are the more popular students since they make up 10% of the school. In addition, they can be occasionally called to help out the NOT Class as a sort of mentor like that of the staff. Lastly, as E.A.T. Students, they're allowed to partake in quests that involves the hunting of evil human souls (Kishin Eggs), witches, and are involved in the DWMA's Military departments as well as able to fight against evil.

Quests are missions undertaken exclusively by the E.A.T. Class student body outside the academy and are dangerous. Many of their missions revolves around the execution of those on Shinigami's List[3] (Kishin Eggs in the anime[4]) as well as investigations of supernatural occurrences and even assassinations.[3] People who go on quests are often also collecting and trying to attain 99 souls of evil humans on Shinigami's list (Kishin Egg in the anime) and one Witch soul to create a Death Scythe.

The quests are organized into different ranks; each student also has a rank. Depending on their corresponding rank, they're allowed to take on missions suited for them. These quests seem to be organized by the Receptionist as well as N.O.T Students in order by rank.[5] Quests are found on the Mission Board.


  • Death the Kid's I.D Card in the anime
  • Part of Spirit's I.D card in the manga.
  • Death's Family insignia in the back of Kid's card.

Students and staff members that also participate/ areinvolved in various in E.A.T. course curriculum are ranked in a one to three star system.[6] Demon Weapons are ranked alongside their Meisters.[7] One-Star and Two-Stars is the ranking which the students are able to receive. Three-Stars are the highest ranking and associated with with professors who teach the E.A.T. curriculum classes such as Sid Barrett.[7]


There's two special testing elusive to the DWMA in which students partake in:

  • Ultimate Written Exam: The Ultimate Written Exam, also known as the Super Written Exam, is a test given to both meisters and weapons within the academy every year which focuses on the Soul Studies subject.[8]
  • Athletics Test:The Athletic Test is a test of an individual's physical fitness and is much more intense then that of normal athletics tests.[9] Both the EAT and NOT class take this test.[10]


Within the DWMA, students are normally put into teams consisting of three Meisters and a varying number of Demon Weapons depending on the type of Meister. These teams are put together by the staff based on their capability of resonating with one another, with the staff members also picking the team's leader.[11] They're also special teams recognized at "elite units" of the EAT Class. Students may be put together specializing in dealing with specific situations by the staff members and headmaster.[12]

Additionally, instructors and elite Meister also may form a team with one another, undertaking some, if not, the most dangerous missions within the Academy.
