—Wang Cheng to Miraculized, "Re-creation"

Maître[3] Wang Cheng[4] (also called Cheng Shifu, meaning "Master Cheng") is a minor character of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. He is a famous and highly skilled Chinese chef, as well as the owner and head chef of the Thousand Delights restaurant. He is also Sabine and Shu Yin Cheng's uncle and Marinette's great-uncle.

In "Kung Food", he came to Paris for the World's Greatest Chef contest. After Chloé sabotaged his Celestial Soup and made him lose the competition, he was infected with an akuma by Hawk Moth and became Kung Food, a culinary supervillain.

Appearance

Physical appearance

Wang Cheng is at medium height and he is overweight, having short black hair and brown eyes. His eyebrows are long and thick, and he has a small mustache beneath his nose with a gap in the middle, as well as a small, squared beard on the tip of his chin.

Civilian attire

He wears a chef uniform, which includes a white chef hat, a light gray shirt with sleeves rolled to his elbows and four buttons on the left side, and light gray pants. His shoes are black and he carries a brown leather side satchel with the strap going over his left shoulder.

As Kung Food

Kung Food had pale, light grayish purple skin, golden sclerae, and vivid orange eyes. There were red marks on his forehead, around his mouth, and around his chin. His eyebrows were thick silver markings with curled ends. His hair, mustache, and beard were blond, his hair spiky and wildly pointing upwards. He still wore his chef hat and his satchel, the side of his satchel now bearing a brown mandarin symbol, which meant "Kung Food," within a circle. He wore an orange sleeveless karate tunic with short, tattered sleeves and a dark brown collar, along with a black belt wrapped around his waist. On the right side of his chest, there was a red circle with a white outline and white Mandarin characters which read "Kung Food" inside. There were black strands of fabric wrapped around his lower legs, and his shoes were black with tan soles.

Personality

Kung Food 093

Wang cooking.

Wang is a soft-spoken, respectful and pleasant man who appreciates the kindness of his great-niece Marinette Dupain-Cheng. He works hard at cooking and struggles with failure as he doesn't like being tricked.

As Kung Food, he was vengeful and furious as he was displeased with Chloé Bourgeois for ruining his soup and planning to get back at her by cooking her into a soup that he called Brat Soup.

Abilities

As a civilian

Wang is an excellent cook, who wins the title of The World's Greatest Chef. His cooking style involves improvising with whatever life brings him that day. His most notable dish is Celestial Soup, which he would later rename Marinette Soup after his great-niece.

While his native language is Mandarin, he is able to speak a little English, although he states his abilities are terrible. He later studied hard to improve his English so it would be easier for him to communicate with his foreign relatives, and he developed the ability to speak English much more fluently.

In "Re-creation", Wang displays martial combat skills as shown when he fights against the Miraculizeds with his kitchen utensils.

As Kung Food

Everybody who tasted Kung Food's tampered soup prior to him being akumatized was brought under his control as minions, and gained enhanced martial arts abilities. As a sign of this, their eyes turned the same color as Kung Food's eyes with brilliant orange sclerae.

Kung Food also could create any food-based weapon he desired with his satchel. He could either wield these weapons himself or give them to his minions.

The objects and weapons he produced included:

  • Flying rice balls that could record footage like a camera while another rice ball projected a hologram of that footage.
  • A swimming pool's worth of soup broth, described as being well balanced and not greasy.
  • Pots of indestructible caramel that could be used to seal off exits.
  • A mace made out of seafood.
  • A flail made out of potatoes, sausages, lettuce and carrots.
  • A crossbow made of cheese that fired stinky cheese bombs.
  • A bow and arrows made out of candy and chocolate.
  • A pair of Tonfas made out of sushi rolls.
  • A bo staff made out of an elongated burrito.
  • A dust of red pepper powder that could blind the person's eyes.
  • A giant sword made out of pepperoni pizza.

Relationships

Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug

Kung Food 448

Wang Cheng teaching Marinette how to make his special Soup.

Wang meets his great-niece when he visits her house before the World's Greatest Chef contest. While it's not initially obvious to Marinette, Wang cares for her and appreciates her kindness and hospitality. He uses the flowers she gives him in his soup and, after losing the contest, realizes that Marinette was right about Chloé sabotaging his dish. When remaking his soup, Wang Cheng shows Marinette how to make it when she requests he show her, and he renames it after her.

Prior to visiting Paris, Wang was unaware of who Ladybug is. After being akumatized into Kung Food, Hawk Moth explains who Ladybug and Cat Noir are and Kung Food decides to cook them in his "Brat Soup" in order to give it "superhero flavor."

He fought for Ladybug and Cat Noir against the Miraculized in "Re-creation".

Adrien Agreste/Cat Noir

Kung Food 059

Wang Cheng interacting with Adrien.

Wang gets along well with Adrien, conversing with him in Chinese on their drive to Le Grand Paris and telling him how he plans to use Marinette's flower gift to decorate his dish.

Much like with Ladybug, Wang was unaware of who Cat Noir is before visiting Paris and wants to cook him in his soup after becoming Kung Food.

He fought for Ladybug and Cat Noir against the Miraculized in "Re-creation".

Fei Wu/Ladydragon

Wang Cheng met Fei after she was invited to his 60th birthday. He said that the accordion was an instrument that he always wanted to play, but he never took the time to learn, Fei told him that she could play if he wanted and he agreed. Later on, Wang Cheng said that Fei was the magic ingredient that Marinette was desperately looking for after all. In "Re-creation", he was saved by Fei after getting out of her nightmare of not being worthy of the Prodigious when she saw him being affected by the nightmares and was about to be ganged up by the Miraculized.

Chloé Bourgeois

Kung Food 108

Chloé faking innocence after tampering with the soup.

Wang Cheng didn't think much of Chloé until he realizes that she ruined his soup for the contest, much to his anger. When transformed into Kung Food, he has her captured and plans to get revenge on her by cooking her into "Brat Soup".

It is not known what their relationship will be like later

Bastille
