|[v · t · e]|
Wabutora (わぶとら), the Oil User (油使い Abura Tsukai), is a world renowned chef well known for his remarkable skill and technique in cooking with oil. He is the owner chef of the Deep Frying Cuisine restaurant "Oil King" and is inducted into the illustrious IGO Chef Ranking at rank 14, making him the 14th greatest chef in the world.
Wabutora is a dark skinned, bald man with large earlobes extending to the collar of his robe. He has a double cleft chin with a thick muscular neck and he has a soul patch as his only facial hair. He wears a long dark robe that reaches past his knees and the collar and sleeves of his robe are decorated with triangles.
He appears to be a passionate chef who enjoys cooking and is also a friendly individual who immediately greeted the newly inducted Komatsu and thanked him for his discovery of Mors Oil which he greatly enjoys cooking with. When he met Sunny at Death Falls, he showed to have a big determination to go past the dangerous waterfalls to obtain the mentioned oil, even later when he was very prideful of his oil until a stone that fell on his head crushed his self steem, feeling embarassed.
Power and Abilities
Joejoe mentioned Wabutora's name as one of the chefs that would be difficult to capture. He has demonstrated the ability to slide across surfaces of water at high speed without sinking. It is unclear whether this can be accomplished through his sole speed or if he uses some kind of oil. Given his moniker this is likely a play on the fact that oil and water cannot mix.
Based on the fact that oil repels water, Wabutora has his body coated in oil which allows him to float over water, ignoring the weight of his body and the gravity that should pull him.
Being one of the top 100 chefs in the world, Wabutora is a man of amazing cooking skill and, as his nickname suggests, one of the preeminent experts in the usage of oil in cooking. His skill is further proven in his ability to pass the preliminaries of the Cooking Festival, proving his strength and fitness in "Triathlon Cooking", his speed and efficiency in "Death Scale Cooking", his handling of ingredients and expertise in "Entire Island Cooking", and making it all the way to the finals of the fest.
|Secret Technique - Oil Sweat (秘技 油汗 Higi: Abura Ase): Wabutora drinks up a bottle of Karakaraayu which makes him sweat oil on all his body, and allows him to repel water, even the fatal waterfall of Death Falls.|
|Abracadabra Secret Technique - Oil Can (アブラカダブラ秘義 油差し Aburakadabura Higi: Aburasashi): He releases oil from his fingers and coats the wheels of his bike with it in order to increase his speed as it moves smoothly.|
|Secret Technique - Oil Offensive (秘技 油攻め Higi: Aburazeme): A cooking technique where Wabutora mixes multiple different types of oil, Mors Oil, Second Oil and Simmer Oil, together to make an oil that reaches high temperatures in moments allowing him to deep fry ingredients at an incredible speed.|
|Secret Technique - Oilfield Deep Fry (奥義 油田揚げ Ōgi: Yuden Age): Wabutora spreads oils from his arms to deep fry instantly his opponent's body. His pride in this technique is such that he admits that his wanted to show it at the Cooking Fest. The process through which he heats up the liquid is unknown.|
He is first mentioned by Joejoe along with "National Treasure" Setsuno, "Cooking King" Zaus, "Tray King" Yuda, "Ramen Master" Kurakage, "Iron Plate Magician" Moh, "Ethnic King" Klaraman, "Poison Cuisine" Tylan, and "Boss of Underground Cooking" Livebearer, as one of the top chefs that would be difficult for the Gourmet Corp. to capture.
After Sunny arrived with Quinn to the Death Falls on his request by the IGO to capture Mors Oil, his feelers detected Wabutora's presence near him. Since the chef's kitchen ran out of the mentioned oil, he went to the falls by himself to get it and met the Heavenly King, who doubts if he can really obtain it. Sunny later is impressed to see that Wabutora can float on water without feelers, just by coating his feet with oil which repels water. Since Sunny keeps mocking the Oil User, the latter one states him that he will show his strength to repel the waterfalls.
He then drinks Karakaraayu and starts sweating oil despite Sunny's contempt, something that he calls "Oil Sweat". After taking off his black robe, he walks near a fall and makes an opening with his body, which isn't crushed by the water's force due to the effect of his body that repels the water, much to Sunny's admiration. But suddenly, a big stone from the waterfall falls smashes his head as he regrets with "Oil will repel water, but that does not extend to rocks with low water content". Sunny then gets disappointed about him, and shows him how easily he repels the waterfall with a simple Spatula. Amazed, he is thankful as Sunny decides to share the Mors Oil with him and tells the Heavenly King that he'll be looking forward to meet the one who discovered the famous oil.
Wabutora is seen competing in Cooking Festival along with the other top 100 chefs. Upon entering Cooking Stadium, Wabutora receives a large applause and a proper introduction by the MC Munageh, who comments that Wabutora practically has oil running through his veins, but admits to over exaggerating. After the introductions ended, Wabutora greets Komatsu and thanks him for discovering Mors Oil, saying that he uses it all the time in his restaurant. Later in the first swimming part of the first event, Triathlon Cooking, Wabutora glides on the water, like speed skating. The MC again comments that he has oil instead of blood, but Wabutora again declines that, saying it is blood. At the half of the distance, turning around the Takoyaki Island, Wabutora is first, but then Setsuno passes him with great speed, which shocks him. He notices that behind him Zaus and Ton are catching up. He finishes the swimming part 4th, moments later after Zaus and Ton. Wabutora passes the three preliminary events: Triathlon Cooking, Scale Death Cooking, and Entire Island Cooking. In the Champion Tournament, his opponent is Tsurara Mama.
A year and a half later, Wabutora cooks many dishes out of the Billion Bird, such as fried chicken, chicken nuggets, and chicken cutlet in his store.
Wabutora is one of the many people who goes to the World Kitchen to say their goodbyes to the Four Heavenly Kings and Komatsu before they set off to Gourmet World, and he and his fellow chefs promise to cook all the ingredients that they send.
When the delivery of Gourmet World ingredients finally came into the Human World, Wabutora joined up with many of the Human World's skilled personnel who journeyed to Gourmet World in order to assist the Heavenly Kings. When everyone arrived in Area 8's Hex Food World, they were told by the Daruma Hermit that the Heavenly Kings had already departed from the Area 8 and headed to Area 7, much to their disappointment. However the Daruma Hermit then offered them their last remaining Safety Monster to help take the group to Area 7, the Crabbus.
