Ramen Kenpo is a form of martial arts displayed by Wanze during his fight with Sanji aboard the Sea Train.

OverviewEdit

Ramen Kenpo consists of Wanze using ramen noodles and related elements to fight. His style consists of swallowing large amounts of flour and blowing noodles out of his nose, and using his nose-hair to cut the noodles, to use for various purposes, battle or cooking-wise. Because of his methods, people find his dishes disgusting and refuses to eat any of it.[1][2]

TechniquesEdit

  • Ramen Beam (拉麺ビーム Ramen Bīmu?, literally meaning "Japanese Noodle Beam"): Wanze's trademark attack (though not actually a beam). Wanze puts a large amount of flour in his mouth, covers one of his nostrils and shoots it through the other one as sharpened noodles that pierce his target. When he uses his "Men's Formal Suit", this attack is his defense against attacks that are directed to his unarmored upper body.[3]
  • Men-Kiri (麺切り Men-Kiri?, literally meaning "Noodle Cutting"): Wanze strikes his roller skates against a surface until the friction sets them on fire. Used to prepare his "Fire Skate" attack. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Noodle Slicer.[3]
  • Fire Skate (炎包丁 (ファイアスケート) Faia Sukēto?, literally meaning "Flaming Cleaver"): After using "Men-Kiri", Wanze jumps and performs a flaming, sweeping kick with his ignited roller skates. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Fire Skate Blades.[3]
  • Ramen Kenpo Ogi: Men's Formal Suit (ラーメン拳法「奥義」麺ズ正裝(メンズフォーマル)スーツ Ramen Kenpō Ōgi: Menzu Fōmaru Sūtsu?, literally meaning "Ramen Kenpo Ultimate Technique: Japanese Noodle Formal Battle-Suit"): Wanze swallows a sack of flour and produces a large amount of noodles from his nose, forming them into a giant noodle armor. Besides serving as armor, it also increases the force of his blows, and if his opponent tries to strike him he will be caught between the noodles, rendering them vulnerable to other attacks. Menn in this case means "noodle", but is written so that it is a pun with the English word "men". In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Ra-Men's Formal Suit.[3]
  • Tonkotsu Spank (豚骨スパンク Tonkotsu Supanku?, literally meaning "Pork Bone Spank"): A straight, powerful punch using the battle-suit's arm. If the opponent tries to bat the punch away, they will get stuck in the noodles, after which Wanze will smash them into any nearby surface. Tonkotsu is a ramen broth made from pork bones. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Pork Bone Spank.[4]
  • Men Soul Press (麺魂(メンソウル)プレス Men Sōru Puresu?, literally meaning "Noodle Soul Press"): Once he has an opponent stuck in his noodles, Wanze jumps and crashes down the entire battle-suit on them with a massive body slam. In the Viz Manga, this is called Soul Man Pasta Press and in the FUNimation dub, it is called Noodle Soul Press.[4]
  • Ramen Gyoza Set - Clapping (ラーメンギョーザセット クラッピング Ramen Gyōza Setto - Kurappingu?, literally meaning "Japanese Noodle Potsticker Set - Clapping"): Wanze claps the arms of his battle-suit one against the other, attempting to catch his opponent between them. In the Viz Manga, this is called Ramen and Potsticker Combo... Super Slap and in the FUNimation dub it is called Ramen and Gyoza Combo, Clapping.[4]
  • Fukumen Spank (複麺スパンク Fukumen Supanku?, literally meaning "Double-Noodle Spank"): Wanze turns the arms of his battle-suit into several smaller ones protruding in all directions and launches a rain of punches against his opponent. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Multi-Noodle Spank.[4]
  • Senmen Muchi (千麺ムチ Senmen Muchi?, literally meaning "Thousand-Noodle Whip"): Wanze swings his arms like whips, the arms now merely being long strings of noodle, without "fists". In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Thousand Noodle Whip.[4]
  • Menkui Knocker (麺杭ノッカー Menkui Nokkā?, literally meaning "Noodle-Stake Knocker"): Wanze jumps in the air and sends both his suit's massive legs flying towards the opponent, with the ramen forming a sharp point at the end. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Noodle Nail Knockout.[5]
  • Hocho Nage (包丁投げ Hōchō Nage?, literally meaning "Kitchen-Knife Throw"): Wanze throws several kitchen knifes at his opponent. It is a last resort move, which shows Wanze does not have the same "kitchen tools aren't for killing" policy as Sanji. In the Viz Manga, this is simply called Knife Throw and in the FUNimation dub is called Kitchen Knife Throw.[5]
