Makubee (まくべえ), the Onigiri General (おにぎり大将 Onigiri Taishō), is world-renowned chef specializing in onigiri rice balls and the head chef and owner of the restaurant Taisho. Due to his great cooking skills, he is one of the top 50 chefs in the world, being ranked at 38th place in the World Gourmet Chef Rankings.
Makubee is a massive man with an incredibly muscular upper body and a big belly. His incredibly large and muscular arms are way longer than his legs, which are rather short in comparison with his bulking appearance. He appears to always walk barefoot.
The overall shape of his head is vaguely reminiscent of an onigiri. He has an oval face, with a round chin and almost pointy head. His ears and nose are very small. He has narrow eyes that he tends to keep closed most of the time. His mustache follows the curve of his mouth, growing longer near its corners. His hair is black and very short.
He is a strong-willed individual who will not think twice to fight against a menace, and he seems to care for other chefs as he defended Komatsu from the Scum Beasts at the Gourmet Corp.'s invasion to the Cooking Festival.
Powers and Abilities
Due to his high position in the IGO Chef Ranking, Makubee is one of the best cooks in the world. Befitting his hulking body, he can kill Scum Beasts barehanded thanks to his strength, as one of his punches was enough to crush a creature's skull. He has a good tolerance to pain, seen when he kept on fighting even after receiving some minor injuries without looking troubled in the least, and didn't scream when a Nitro's spear pierced him, though it did cause him to lose consciousness. He also knows sumo wrestling, as he can push away and defeat at the same time an opponent. He claims to possess onigiri fists which he can use to form onigiri made out of energy, and with them he can shoot energy blasts from a short distance.
|Secret Technique - Musubi no Ichiban (秘技:結びの一番 refers to the last match of a day in sumo): While shouting "Dosukoi" (どすこい), Makubee opens his palms and pushes away an opponent with great strength, crushing him against a wall and knocking him out with the damage of the impact.|
|Onigiri Blast (unnamed): Makubee molds an onigiri made out of energy on his palms and then rushes to shoot energy blasts at the target consecutively at a distance from his hands like a machine gun.|
He was shown alongside Moh, Tsurara Mama, Sumire, Lulubhu, and the other chefs when they entered the Cooking Stadium. He was able to pass the three preliminary events: Triathlon Cooking, Scale Death Cooking and Entire Island Cooking. And was able to reach the Championship Cooking, where his opponent would have been Muhan.
When the Gourmet Corp. attacked, he was seen crushing their beasts with his bare hands, but then was stabbed by a spear from the back by a Nitro. Whether or not he survived the attack remains unknown.
