Patty is one of the main cooks at the Baratie, currently serving as the restaurant's head pâtissier.[3]

Appearance

He is a large, muscular man with a lot of hair on his arms and legs. He has a shaved head, large lips, and a short black beard. He wears a navy blue short-sleeved shirt with yellow buttons on both sides, and light blue on the end of the sleeves. He has knee-length shorts that are the same color as his shirt, along with brown shoes. He also wears a white apron, a pink ascot, an earring in his right ear, and a white rope tied around his head. He has two heart tattoos on his left arm.

After the timeskip, Patty no longer has a shaven head, as black hair has now grown. He also appears to have a longer beard. He wears the same style shirt and shorts, and has the same earring, rope, and ascot. His apron now says "Baratie Dessert" on it.

Personality

Patty is the Baratie's most consciously "professional" cook, always trying to charm customers with extravagant poses and slogans. Like most of his fellow cooks, however, he is intrinsically hot-blooded and crude, believing terms like "squid-bastard" (イカ野郎 Ika-yarō?) to be genuine compliments. Toward vagrants and outlaws, he drops these pleasantries entirely, and has no compunctions about violently ejecting them.[1]

At the same time, Patty is a genuinely brave and devoted member of the Baratie, willing to risk his life to defend it from any and all threats. He is also capable of legitimate charity, even toward enemies.

Relationships

Baratie Cooks

Carne

Carne appears to be Patty's closest friend, the two having cooked together for at least ten years—and received dismissals from hundreds of restaurants for unprofessional behavior—before joining the Baratie.[4] While their contrasting temperaments (Carne being much more levelheaded and cautious) sometimes lead them to mock and belittle one another, they are more often than not united in their rivalry against Sanji.

Sanji

Among the Baratie staff, Patty is usually the loudest and most aggressive about criticizing Sanji, whose credo—to always feed the desperate and punish food-wasters, regardless of money or circumstances—stand in complete antithesis to Patty's own. During their time as coworkers, they regularly insulted each other's personalities and cooking skills, and physically fought over large and small issues alike.[1]

However, Patty has always held a certain respect for the younger cook, never seriously contesting Sanji's habit of feeding outcasts until Don Krieg's invasion (and privately acknowledging that Zeff's training made Sanji the better combatant by far).[5] After learning of Sanji's history with Zeff, this respect deepened, and he—along with Carne—became more willing to obey Sanji, even aiding the Krieg Pirates on his orders.

Currently, Patty continues to take great amusement in Sanji's constant failures to acquire a dignified wanted poster, even modeling one of the Baratie's side-ships after the ugly facial composite used for his first poster.[6]

Zeff

As Zeff provided him—and Carne—with a stable workplace despite their violent personalities, Patty is completely deferential and devoted to the senior chef (one of his many sources of frustration with Sanji, whom he finds unfairly disrespectful). Even after learning of Zeff's past, however, he remains somewhat hesitant to follow Zeff's credo of feeding anyone that arrives at the Baratie hungry.[7]

Enemies

Krieg Pirates

While aware of Don Krieg's fearsome reputation throughout the East Blue, Patty looked down on Gin as a lowly criminal without any real status in the Krieg Pirates, and quickly expelled him for entering the Baratie without money (as well as threatening the staff). He was similarly dismissive of Krieg himself upon seeing his level of starvation, not only denying Krieg food but planning to deliver him to the Marines.

This dismissal became outright hostility when the Krieg Pirates, fed by Sanji and Zeff, recovered their strength and tried to take over the Baratie. Like most of his fellow cooks, Patty found the pirates' brutality overwhelming—their captain's most of all. When Krieg ordered Gin to expose himself to deadly poison as punishment for defying an order, Patty became somewhat sympathetic to the latter, and (on Sanji's orders) tried his best to help Gin survive.[8]

After the Krieg Pirates were beaten by the combined efforts of Sanji and Monkey D. Luffy, Patty remained hostile to the crew overall, but (again on Sanji's orders) allowed them to take one of the Baratie's supply-boats.

Abilities and Powers

Culinary Expertise

Patty is a highly skilled and experienced chef, being the official patissier of Baratie's pastries and cakes.[3] He has excellent skills in using knives, able to precisely slice and debone a large fish with great speed. He is capable enough to be entrusted by Zeff to manage the Sister Anko dessert ship.

Physical Abilities

While not as formidable as Sanji or Zeff, Patty is implicitly one of the Baratie's best combatants, drawing great strength from his size and muscle mass as well as years of experience from (unofficially) being one of the restaurant's main bouncers. Notably, he was able to shatter a chair—with Gin still seated—in a single barehanded strike.[9]

Weapons

In melee, Patty favors a trident taller than his entire body. With this weapon, he—along with a glaive-armed Carne—were able to defeat a pack of Krieg Pirates that had proven too much for most of their fellow cooks.

Against particularly dangerous foes, he wields the Shokuatari Meatball (食あたり砲弾ミートボール Shokuatari Mītobōru?, literally meaning, "Indigestion Meatball"; Official English: Meatball of Doom), a lobster-shaped bazooka loaded with powerful explosive shot.[10] In the event of a full-on invasion, he and Carne can also co-pilot the Baratie's mini-battleship Sabagashira I.[11]

He also carries a high-quality carving knife under his apron, though he has never been seen using it in battle. This knife's blade is etched with the characters for "Fist of the North Star" (北斗の拳 Hokuto no Ken?).[4][12]

History

Past

Sometime in the past, Patty and Carne started working at the Baratie after seeing Zeff's advertisement about "damn cooks wanted".[13]

Around that time, the three chefs tried to petition Zeff to hire some female chefs, but Zeff refused because his style of training would not, in his opinion, be suitable for women.[14]

East Blue Saga

Baratie Arc

After practicing his greetings in the bathroom, Patty entered the dining room, saw Sanji threatening to beat up Fullbody, and berated Sanji for it.[1] Later on, Patty taunted the starving Gin by refusing to give him food and knocked out Sanji so that the chef would not cook for Don Krieg and his men.[15] Patty and Carne helped defend the restaurant from Krieg, particularly by rallying the other cooks to defeat Don Krieg's lower subordinates. However, he and Carne were defeated by Pearl.[4]

Sanji stepped up to battle Pearl and revealed his superior kicking abilities. However, the battle was cut short as Zeff had been taken hostage by Gin.[16] Sanji refused to let any harm to come to Zeff as he owed the man with his life. Patty and Carne demanded to know their past, so Sanji informed them about how, when Sanji was young, Zeff had attacked his ship.[17]

As the battle raged on, Don Krieg launched a MH5 Poison Bomb at the Baratie. Patty and the other cooks were able to take cover from the gas until it dissipated.[18] However, they realize the enemy commander Gin had been poisoned in a turn of events. They initially declared they would refuse to help him, but were ultimately coerced into giving Gin antidote by Sanji.[19]

He and the other cooks then witnessed the defeat of Don Krieg at the hands of Monkey D. Luffy.[20] As they recuperated from a hard battle, Zeff overheard Sanji turn down the chance to leave the Baratie with Luffy to the Grand Line. Seeing the joy on Sanji's face and voice as he talked about his dream, Zeff had Patty and Carne help him in a plan to convince Sanji to leave. As they met to eat, they all pretended Sanji's soup tasted horrible. They told him his cooking skills were horrible and should leave. Sanji was even kicked out of the restaurant by Zeff when he challenged them and their tastes. When the chefs explained they were only faking so Sanji would leave with Luffy, Sanji overheard while he sat outside.[21] After filling him up with supplies, Sanji prepared to push off when Patty and Carne attempted to perform one more surprise attack on Sanji. He easily defeated their attack as he took off. Zeff wished him luck and Sanji bowed and began crying as he showed the Baratie his ultimate respect. Sanji then left the Baratie cooks and began his new life as one of the Straw Hat Pirates.[22]

Water 7 Saga

Post-Enies Lobby Arc

After the Enies Lobby incident, Patty laughed at the picture for Sanji's wanted poster.[23]

Fish-Man Island Saga

From the Decks of the World

Two years later in an expanded Baratie, Patty operated the dessert ship named "Sister Anko".[24]

Four Emperors Saga

From the Decks of the World: The 500,000,000 Man Arc

After the events at Dressrosa, Patty and the other chefs of the Baratie received Sanji's new wanted poster, with him laughing at Carne's frustration over the fact he modeled his new ship after Sanji's old poster.[6]

Whole Cake Island Arc

Some pirates visited the restaurant and demanded food. Patty was displeased with their presence but Zeff had no objections preparing a meal for them.[7]

Translation and Dub Issues

The 4Kids-dubbed anime gives him an Irish accent, presumably in reference to the diminutive—and sometimes pejorative—Paddy.

Trivia

  • While Oda has confirmed that Patty's name was derived from pâtissier[25], the term patty also refers to a round, flat ground-meat cake most commonly used in hamburgers.
  • Patty's favorite food is pudding.[2] At one point, he suggested using his special pudding recipe to treat Gin's MH-5 poisoning (though Carne scorned this as effectively re-poisoning Gin).[8]
    • Coincidentally, pudding is—in English—a term that can refer to both savory meat courses and sweet dessert courses.
