Picolet Chardin II


Picolet Chardin II is one of the oddest characters in the series. He is a "speed eater" from the "La Belle France School of Martial Arts" and able to eat so fast that one is unable to even see his mouth move.

Picolet appears at Furinkan High School and quickly devours almost everyone's lunches. Ranma, having a large appitite himself quickly challenges Picolet to a match of speed eating which Ranma quickly loses. It is later discoverd that instead of paying the bill at Picolet's father's restaurant Soun promised one of his then unborn daughters as Picolet's bride.

Ranma then decides to say that he will become Picolet's bride in order to learn Picolet's techniques and get revenge for his earlier loss.


The Meaning Behind the Name - ピコレット・シャルダン

Picolet (ピコレット) is named after a Japanese diaper type product, while his last name Chardin (シャルダン) is taken from "My Shaldan" air fresheners. Madame St. Paul's name (マダムサンポール) is a reference to "San Po-ru" floor cleaner.
