Chef Torte, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Chef Torte is a Torte and has a famous reputation for baking cake. He has appeared in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Currently, he works in the kitchen at the Marrymore chapel baking wedding cakes. Chef Torte takes his work very seriously. He constantly bosses around his apprentice and even insults him as the two do the cooking. Additionally, if Mario jumps on the wedding cake while Chef Torte is making it, Chef Torte will scold him, causing Mario to fall off the cake.

In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Chef Torte is requested to bake "the greatest wedding cake in the world" for Booster and Princess Toadstool's wedding. The chef and his apprentice eventually complete the Bundt, but when they arrive to the wedding ceremony, they discover that Mario has disrupted the wedding and rescued Princess Toadstool. Chef Torte, angry that his cake will not be eaten (ignoring or not knowing that Raz and Raini were to get married before Booster and his cronies kicked them out of the wedding hall), along with his apprentice, attacks Mario and his allies.

In battle, Chef Torte attacks by running up to one of Mario's allies and furiously slapping him. Additionally, the chef and his apprentice cannot be defeated (as they are needed purely for purposes of the story). Mario and his allies, however, can attack and damage the cake. Eventually, after taking enough hits, the cake will start to move. Apparently, Chef Torte's effort helped make the Bundt come alive, although Chef Torte and his apprentice retreat. Later, after Mario and his allies defeat the cake, when Mario returns to Marrymore, Chef Torte is seen working on another wedding cake.

  • "Torte" is German for "layer cake." Likewise, Chef Torte speaks with a thick German accent in his dialogue similar to Dyllis.
  • Chef Torte shares similarities with Bubbles because both have created a food which is apparently so well-made, it became alive. Unlike Bubbles, however, he does not assist his creation in battle. In addition, unlike Bubbles, his cake becoming alive was completely unintentional.
