History

East Blue Saga

Baratie Arc

Fullbody stepped on Batchee in the Baratie and put him inside of his soup in an attempt to humiliate Sanji. Fullbody’s plan did not go as planned, as Sanji deflected back to embarrass him. In anger, Fullbody destroyed the table, knocking his soup and Batchee to the floor.

Anime and Manga Differences

In the anime, Batchee is replaced by a long brown bug, with two antennae, two little black eyes, ten legs, and two long appendages jutting from his behind. This anime version resembles a silverfish (thysanura) if compared with a real insect.

In the anime, Fullbody is shown stepping on Batchee as he crawls under his table before putting Batchee in his soup, presumably killing him. However, in the manga, Fullbody simply states that he put the insect in his soup and it is not shown where he got Batchee from, and he is shown to still be moving in the soup. The manga then shows Batchee on the floor after Fullbody smashes the table, leaving his status unknown.

Trivia

  • The scene with Batchee is likely based on a memetic gag in which a restaurant-goer tells the waiter that there is a fly in their soup, only for the waiter to say something witty in response.
  • In the seventh popularity poll, Batchee was ranked 112th out of 1052 characters.
