    Chase (Zen Makunouchi)

"Prepare for battle!"

Voiced in Japanese by: Chika Sakamoto
Voiced in English by: Tara Jayne

The main character of the series. Chase is a 10-year old, impatient chef-in-training from Yokohoma. He is the son of the legendary Chef Jack, and brother to Kayla. He originally sets off with his sister to save Chef Jack from the clutches of the villainous Gluttons, and afterwards sets off to become a greater chef, while also trying to vanquish the Glutton Empire once and for all.

  • Adorkable: When it comes to Foodons and Food alike? But of course.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: After defeating King Gorge and the Gluttons, Chase becomes the new King of Foods. He isn't very enthused of his new position though.
  • Big Eater: Naturally.
  • Catchphrase: "The kitchen... is... OPEN!"
  • Diving Save: Chase has dove to save quite a few people during the series, including saving Oslo from falling debris in the very first episode. He even saved Fried Ricer and Omelet from being thrown off the S.S Food Fight during their practice battle with Albert.
  • Doppelgänger Attack/Super Speed: Chase's Iceberg Lettuce Power Topping both increases his affected Foodon's speed and allows them to create duplicates of themselves to distract the opponent.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: Carries a massive one on his back, and has used it as a weapon at least once.
  • Generation Xerox: Chase plans to follow his father's footsteps to become a great Master Chef. He even has a similar hair style like his old man.
  • Heroic BSoD: Suffers a rather heavy blow after his Fruit Turtle was destroyed while battling Rose Marinade, to the point where he refused to battle the Gluttons anymore.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Keet
  • Knife Nut: Carries a Kitchen Knife mostly for cooking, however he has used it as a weapon on more than one occasion.
  • Pals with Jesus: He gives life to Foodon of Light, Palator, the most powerful Foodon in existence, to do battle with King Gorge's own Evil Foodon, Devouron.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Chase's outfit consists of an apron with shoulder pads, white bandanna, a sleeveless blue shirt underneath, red wrist bands, and red capris. And also has a bit of yellow upon his hair.
  • Shonen Hair
  • Small Name, Big Ego: At first he was lacking any real self-worth of his ability. After a few wins under his belt, this starts inflating his ego a little...
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Comparing Chase with his father, they definitely appear to be similar.
  • The Magic Touch: It turns out Chase, being a Dish Wizard, can prepare super powered 5-Star Foodons. This is evident by his touch when preparing Fruit Turtle, the Pineapple he touches flashes a faint purple.
  • Training from Hell: Chase was subjected to this while attending the Gruel Academy for a short time.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Chase is guilty of this twice. First was during the Floating Foodon Tournament, the Big 4 creates a giant buffet for all the passengers on board in order to convert them to the Gormandizers. Chase, along with the rest of the child protagonists stuff themselves of the food and blindly swear their allegiance to King Gorge, which Oslo calls Chase out on. The Second incident occures during the Episode "Attack of the Burger Brigade", when the aforementioned Burger Brigade put on a propaganda show to promote King Gorge's food, Chase and Pie Tin readily cheer for their cause, even after they were finished talking about how terrible the Gluttons are to people.

Chase's Foodons

Burnt Meatballs (Makkuron)

"We're sorry!"

Voiced in English by: Eric Stuart, Maddie Blaustein

Chase's first Foodons he had created, in fact, they were the only Foodons Chase could make until he created Fried Ricer. Despite their informed uselessness and bungling antics, the Burnt Meatballs devote their loyalty and services towards Chase whenever they can.

  • Apologizes a Lot: They apologize profusely for their worthlessness.
  • Ash Face: Well, they ARE Burnt Meatballs, and as such have this look as their permanent appearance.
  • Butt-Monkey: considering they've been used to clog the noses of Slop-Suey and Cinnamonkey, this position fits them like a glove.
  • Determinator: Not to absurd levels, but it takes guts to stand with your master, even when YOU YOURSELF acknowlege that you are more than useless in a fight.
  • Joke Character: By far Chase's weakest foodon on his team.
    • Lethal Joke Character: Until it's revealed that the Meatballs are actually an active ingredient for one of Chase's more powerful Foodons, Feastivus.
  • No-Sell: They're completely impervious to fire, after all they are burnt meatballs. It's precisely why they're the final ingredient for Feastivus.
  • Self-Deprecation: The Meatballs appear to know of their uselessness and actively make jokes on their own expense.
  • Synchronized Swarming: Can form little towers among themselves, and also huddle close to create effective barriers.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Just when it looks like the Meatballs are going to throw themselves into battle, Chase often switches up for another Foodon to use in their place. A more practical example in "Pie Tin Power", the Burnt Meatballs are struck by an Onion Power Topping, which appears to power the Meatballs up... for a few seconds.

Fried Ricer (Chaahan)
Voiced in English by: Andrew Rannells

Chase's first properly prepared, and ever-reliable Foodon partner. He fights along Chase's side as his main battler, wielding two massive spoons into combat.

  • Bare-Handed Blade Block: Chase teaches Fried Ricer how to perform this maneuver, which comes in handy later on when he applies this technique on Sizzler's Ore.
  • Blow You Away: As "Super Fried Ricer", he can create a vortex of wind by spinning his spoons.
  • Dual Wielding: Wields two spoons for close and long ranged combat.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Fried Ricer is both speedy and powerful, not to mention he can take quite a dozen hits.
  • Magic Missile Storm: Fried Ricer can release a volley of orange energy spheres from his spoons by swinging them.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes flash red right before initiating a comeback attack against Mussels Marinara's Shrimp Stompura.
  • Super Mode: Fried Ricer can become "Super Fried Ricer" while partnered up with Fruit Turtle or Feastivus.
  • Walk on Water: In the episode "The Comeback Squid", Fried Ricer has shown that he can run fast enough to run on water.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Octopus and Squid?: Fried Ricer was petrified of Squid and Octopus for a time, until Chase and the Gang allowed him to overcome his fear while battling Foodons of the same species.

Hot Doggone-It (Chersion)
Voiced in English by: Mike Pollock

A cowboy-themed hot dog Foodon Chase created during the Floating Foodon Tournament. Sporting two revolvers (Ketchup and Mustard guns in the Dub), Hot Doggone-It is Chase's reliable sharpshooter of the team.

Fruit Turtle (Tropicolor)

A Five-Star Foodon created from a Fruit Salad. It was given life when Chase caught a pineapple that was part of the salad King Hungry the Ate prepared, and unknowingly enchanted it with Dish Wizard magic. King Hungry gave Fruit Turtle to Chase, and became one of his staple Foodons. Fruit Turtle wouldn't always appear when called however, because it required an immense amount of energy to summon a Five-Star Foodon.

  • Flight: Not the most graceful of fliers though.
  • Edible Ammunition: Can fire the fruits on its back like missiles.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Fruit Turtle can spin the bottom of its body to deflect attacks.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: After being powered up by the rare Purple Pepper, Fruit Turtle obliterates Rose Marinade's Dim-Sum Deluxe Foodon, but at the cost of it's own life.
  • Pure Energy: Fruit Turtle can fire rings of energy from its mouth. It was also used to forcibly revert the Big Four back to their animal state.
  • Super Empowering: Can instantly power up Fried Ricer into his Super Mode by simply being in the same radius.
  • Turtle Island: Seems to be designed after this concept, with a few fruits thrown on top and the shell styled after a pineapple.
  • Turtle Power

Dim-Sumthin' Special (Green Shawlong)

One of Four Dim-Sum Foodons created by Rose Marinade. After Marinade's defeat at the hands of Fruit Turtle, Chase takes Dum-Sumthin' Special as his own. Under Chase's command, Dim-Sum is rarely seen in battle on its own, and is mostly used as an ingredient to summon the much more powerful Foodon: Feastivus.

  • Flight
  • Heel–Face Turn: Was once under the command of Rose Marinade, however Chase took one of her many Dim-Sumthin' Specials along with him to complete Feastivus. It doesn't seem to mind any.
  • Our Dragons Are Different
  • Prehensile Tail: Skilled enough with its tail to grab and squeeze enemies.
  • Tail Slap: One of Dim-Sumthin' Special's go to attacks involve lashing its tail about to strike its foes.

Shrimp Daddy (Ebimusha)

    Oslo (Haoji)

"A chef's energy should flow like the deep blue sea, calm and focused in preparation, than fierce as the strongest tide in battle. The best way to stay afloat is to stay positive, and your foodons will battle to their fullest potential."

Voiced in Japanese by: Wataru Takagi
Voiced in English by: Maddie Blaustein

A fairly old Master Chef who rides on a floating saucer. Oslo has trained Chef Jack personally, and is currently training Chase to become a Master Chef.

  • Idiot Hair: Has a long strand of white hair that curls at the top, which he affectionately calls the "Sorcerer's Swirl".

  • Paper Fan of Doom
  • Sky Surfing: Oslo travels upon a giant, floating pink saucer.

  • What Happened to the Mouse?: While Oslo was the King of Foods, he used to be in possession of his own Fried Ricer, but it was defeated by King Gorge's Fowligator, and is never seen again.

    Chef Jack (Tsukiji Makunouchi)

Voiced in Japanese by: Masami Iwasaki
Voiced in English by: Ed Paul

A Master Chef and the father of Chase & Kayla. He's the leader of the Rebel Chefs who fight against King Gorge. At the end of the Floating Foodon Tournament, he disappears after destroying the Glutton's Ocean Base. At the time of his disappearance, he disguised himself and called himself Chef John to help out Chase on different occasions until his mask was destroyed during the final fight with Rose Marinade.

  • Anime Hair
  • BFS: Has a giant sword on his back.
  • Genius Ditz: Despite being a experienced Master Chef, it becomes much more apparent in the later episodes that Chef Jack is a lot more goofy then he had let on. His biggest example was in the second last episode, where Chef Jack transforms the M.A.C Cart into a cannon, and fires himself in a attempt to catch King Gorge in space. This fails and he unceremoniously lands into the ground.
  • Handwraps of Awesome: Wears a pair over each hand.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: There really is no point to censor Chef Jack's "secret identity". As Chef John he still has Chef Jack's Voice, Sword, and Physique, the only real difference is his clothing, and a mask to cover his face.
  • Pungeon Master: Out of all the characters, Chef Jack lets off the most Food-Based puns.
  • Supreme Chef

  • Cognizant Limbs: Tater Tons has three sectional areas including the Head, Torso and Bottom.

    King Gorge/George Gorge (Don Cook)
"The world is my oyster!"

Voiced in Japanese by: Jin Nishimura
Voiced in English by: Michael Alston Bailey

The primary villain of the series. He builds up the Glutton Empire all for the purpose of, you guessed it, taking over the world. To strengthen his goal, Gorge sends his Gormandizers across the world to recruit other chefs and people by swaying them with food or even by force. He even managed to establish a town under his own name, Gorge Town.

Gorge began as a lowly Dish Washer who worked for King Oslo, and knew nothing about cooking. Oslo eventually took Gorge under his wing and taught him all there was to know of how to become a fine chef, but it wasn't enough to satisfy Gorge's lust for power. Gorge then invades the kingdom of Chow Town, overthrows Oslo in a Foodon Battle, and transforms him into a frail old man. After the Big 4 and Clawdia have failed to stop Chase and his friends, King Gorge took matters into his own hands. When it came to the final battle, he used the power of the Dark Nebula to create Devouron the Foodon Embodiment of Evil. When Oslo gave Chase and his Foodons the ability to become Palator the Foodon Embodiment of Good, he destroyed Devouron and defeated King Gorge cleansing him of evil.

  • Big Bad
  • Black Magic: Is able to release blasts of dark magic from his hands, and also induce Rapid Aging spells, as demonstrated in a flashback to Oslo.

  • Excessive Evil Eyeshadow: Quite a heavy amount of Purple over his eyes.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Can fire streams of dark energy towards an enemy for varying results.

King Gorge's Foodons


  • Breath Weapon: The alligator head can spew flames.

A member of King Gorge's Big Four, who specializes with Chinese Cooked Foodons. At a time, she turned Kayla and Pie Tin into Gluttons by using Apple Pie seasoned with Glutton Magic while she was disguised as an old lady.

  • Anime Chinese Girl
  • Blow You Away: Rose's fans can release powerful gusts of wind. She can also use them to gain temporary flight.
  • Combat Hand Fan: Rose's main weapons.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: From the get go, its pretty obvious that, even though Chase has fought many other Foodons and Gluttons, Rose has more experience is just more cut-throat with her tactics. The only real reason chase won was because of a special topping that powered up his foodons conveniently supposed to be growing in a nearby field. She's also a victim of this herself, despite taking out one of her opponents most crucial foodons, King George decides that she has performed unsatisfactory anyway and turns her into a fox.
  • Hero Killer: manages to off Fruit Turtle in her last battle.
  • Ma'am Shock: She becomes visibly irritated when Chase constantly calls her a "Has Been".
  • Nice Hat
  • Took a Level in Badass: Inverted, in an odd "meta" example of the inversion of this trope, as in the original obscure Bistro Recipe video games, Rose Marinade was the last Big 4 member the player had to defeat. Here in the anime, she's only the third.

They were under direct command of Clawdia for a short time to steal an ancient Relic in the mountain village of Hamsterdam.

Two twin chefs who were participants of the Floating Foodon Tournament and lost to Albert.

  • Half-Identical Twins
  • Not Cheating Unless You Get Caught: As it shows, the Floating Foodon Tournament is divided into three elimination rounds, the first round is a one on one, second round is a Tag Team match, and the third round is a Three on Three. Barb and Cue deliberately compete together against Albert and use two Swede Demons against Albert's lone Cowboyritto. The announcer is perfectly fine with this and doesn't out right disqualify them. It could be argued that in the original game, Swede Demon was shown to be a pair of Foodons from one Meal Ticket (In the same rule of Dugtrio and Magneton being composed of multiple creatures to make a singular Pokemon). Barb and Cue on the other hand used two, which implies the Swede Demons were separate.

The sixth burger, Well-Done, sought to break the spell off his comrades, and agreed to capture Chase for Rose Marinade, in exchange for the Burger Brigade's freedom.

Their mission was to free the Foodons from their indentured servitude to the humans, by first stealing the Secret Sauce, "Salsa Especial", from the town. When in their canyon, one of the Foodon Banditos spotted Chase and his group inside one of their wagons, causing the two groups to attack. During their fight with Chase and Pie Tin, one of the smaller Foodons (referred to as Little Fudgy by Tacquito) was in danger of being crushed by a falling rock and Chase saved the Foodon. Tacquito called off the attack upon witnessing this and stated that Chase's group are not like the inhabitants of Dusty Town.

When Clawdia attacked Dusty Town with Doughnasour to steal the Salsa Especial, the Foodon Banditos helped Chase to fight Doughnasour and keep Dusty Town safe, which resulted in Tacquito getting badly injured when he protected Mayor Slim Rations. After Clawdia and Doughnasour were defeated, Mayor Slim Rations used the Salsa Especial to heal Tacquito. Dusty Town managed to make peace with the Foodon Banditos and started treating their Foodons right.
