Thanks for the edit, and thanks for the welcome. About the food tag…we need more questions about food!

comment What should “Find. Attack. Exterminate” be in Japanese?
捜索、攻撃、壊滅 has the same problem as an earlier comment using 全滅 because the subject of 壊滅する is the ones who are destroyed.

comment What is the best word for 'may not be attacked'?
1. I am not familiar with role-playing games, but from my limited knowledge, character sheets in Japanese are usually written in formal tone, and されてる looks too colloquial. 2. I am not sure if (say) 聖別されている対象 is a usual phrase in D&D character sheets, but in isolation, されている対象 sounds like a duplicate expression to me. I think that 聖別の対象 should be enough.

comment Meaning of 女絡み?
I agree with your overall argument, but I think that the news article example is confusing because the usage of 女 in this example does not have any implications about sexual relationship as far as I can tell.

comment Why are the verb classes called ichidan and godan?
I do not see any reason to downvote this answer. The OP incorrectly assumed that 一段動詞 and 五段動詞 meant “class-1 verb” and “class-5 verb,” respectively, and that there must be class-2, class-3, and class-4 verbs before someone calls something class-5 verb. The entire assumption is faulty, and this answer explains exactly why. The fact that there were 二段動詞 and 四段動詞 in the past is a red herring, and does not resolve the OP’s original confusion.
