Spoiler Alert Spoiler Alert: WARNING! This page happens to contain a lot of heavy spoilers that are all originated from the Overlord Light Novel series written by the author Kugane Maruyama. To every Anime-only watchers and Manga-only reader out there viewing this warning, please mindfully consider your decision first before choosing to expose yourself on reading the information below.

Shihoutu Tokitu or Head Chef (料理長) is an Area Guardian of the Great Tomb of Nazarick that normally works in the Canteen of Nazarick.


The Head Chef is a variant of the orc species known as a wild orc. He has a huge butcher knife on his waist and a large wok chained to his back. The upper torso of his body is bare with a large tattoo of the words "Fresh Meat" (新鮮な肉) emblazoned on his white chest. He also wears a gold chain around his neck, a pure white chef hat on his head and a pure white apron around his waist. Said apron has four stickers at the lower right corner.


Shihoutu Tokitu can be described as having fanatical motivation for his profession and seems to have the need to make vigorous declarations to enunciate the point. He is extremely reverent to the Supreme Beings that he would not consider producing a languished feast for them to be wasteful or reserving his area just for their use only. Besides being intensely proud of his hospitality, he also values his diligence in his duty in such that being questioned on it can cause him to be momentarily stunned.


In the Web Novel, it's stated he was a creation of the Supreme Beings.[1]

Shihhoutu was working in the kitchen of the Canteen during the lunch period of the general maids.

The cook wanted to prepare a meal suitable for the Overlord. Though Ainz asked not to be given preferential treatment since there were other people in the Canteen, the orc became so insistent that Ainz had to question Shihoutu's diligence on his duties. The thought of displeasing halted the orc's proud boasts, but Ainz then apologized for the thoughtless comment and the cook accepted Ainz's request to be treated as a normal guest. The cook complied and went to prepare the meal orders for Ainz's party.[7]

During Ainz's vacation in the Great Forest of Evasha, he briefly teleported back to Nazarick to ask the Head Chef to prepare a meal that had a weak smell to avoid being sniffed out by the creatures in the forest.[8]

Later after Cocytus and Narberal devised the Chilled Chocolate Confectionary, the Head Chef made some additions and recommendations to the dish, adding fresh cream and other ingredients to give it a better texture and taste, making it similar to chocolate gelatto.[24]
