Wabutora is a chef of great skill, and is perhaps the most skilled chef in the world when it comes to cooking with oil. His skill and renown have earned him the 14th place on the IGO Chef Ranking, making him one of the most skilled chefs in the entire world.
Not much is currently known about Wabutora's origins. Only that he acquired the necessary skills to achieve 14th place in the world Chef ranking.
Wabutora is a supporting character created by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi for the series Toriko.
Much Wabutora's evolution is currently unknown aside from his great reputation as a Chef.
Wabutora seems familiar with many of the top ranked Chefs. He also formed a friendly relationship with Komatsu.
Wabutora is formally introduced in the Cooking island arc at the Cooking Festival where only the top 100 ranked Chefs in the world are allowed to compete in. There he meets with Komatsu who had recently entered into the top 100 ranks, and thanks him for discovering the Mors Oil and says that he has already utilized it in his cooking. Shortly after, the Cooking Festival begins with a race to the designated ingredients for the Chefs to use. It is a race by water and Wabutora gets an early lead by using his Water Repelling ability, which allows him to run on water rather than swim. However he is eventually passed by top seeded Chefs, Setsuno, Zaus and Ton but finishes the race at a respectable 4th place. Afterwards, Wabutora is able to pass all the preliminaries and was able to reach the championship, however the Festival is cut short by the abrupt arrival of the Bishokukai. Wabutora shows his fighting prowess, by taking down what is presumably a Scum Beast with his Yuden Age technique. While making few appearances for the remainder of the battle, Wabutora is seen relatively unharmed in the aftermath of the battle and managed to avoid capture at the hands of the Bishokukai, unlike many of his colleagues. He is later seen with Chef Setsuno and several other Chefs at Nono's ice mountain that she made to preserve enormous amounts of food in the instance of a crisis, which had occurred thanks to the Bishokukai (primarily their Boss Midora), who's damage was so widespread that hundreds of countries lacked the necessary resources to feed themselves.
Wabutora is considered one of the greatest Chefs alive with the excellent ranking of 14th in the world. He specializes in the usage of oil, hence his nickname Oil User Wabutora. He was noted by Joejoe that among all the top Chefs, he would be one of the more difficult ones to capture. Indeed, he managed to avoid capture.
Wabutora emits large quantities of hot oil from his arms and attacks his opponents with great speed, literally frying the victim.
Wabutora emits oil from his feet which allows him to run on liquid surfaces such as water.
