|“||I'm the Mad, Mad Wanze!!!||„|
|~ Wanze introducting himself|
Wanze is a member of the CP7 and a cook, specializing in making ramen noodles, introduced as an antagonist in the Enies Lobby arc. He's a man that takes pride in his abilities and appears to be quite confident in them, though he can be a bit dense and short tempered. One of the main attribute to Wanze is that his facial expression seems to never change, even when he claims to be scared, which often lead to the annoyance and irritation of his enemies.
As a chef, Wanze specialized in ramen, and can make ramen noodles by eating flour and using his nose hairs to cut it, something everyone who sees this finds utterly disgusting and refuses to eat it.
Like other One Piece's characters, Wanze has his own signature laughter style, starting it off with "Sa" (i.e. Sasasasasasa!).
