Chef Saltbaker is a character from the 2017 video game Cuphead, specifically coming from the downloadable content pack The Delicious Last Course, where he appears as a central character to the plot. Memes featuring the character started to appear just before the launch of the DLC, with much more coming out after its release, as well as following the premiere of the 2022 Netflix adaptation The Cuphead Show!


Chef Saltbaker first appears in the teaser trailer for The Delicious Last Course, which was revealed at E3 in 2018. On June 10th, 2018, the official IGN YouTube channel uploaded the announcement trailer,[1] which talks about the cast of characters before introducing Chef Saltbaker as jolly, with him smiling to the audience. The trailer received over 940,000 views in four years and had fans focusing more on the legendary chalice as a new playable character over the Chef (shown below).

Memes about Cuphead, in general, were focused more on the Netflix TV show The Cuphead Show! in the following years, until it was revealed that the DLC would finally be released on June 30th, 2022. Because of this, people began to get hyped leading up to its release, with the first meme to feature Chef Saltbaker being posted on the Cuphead Memery subreddit on June 6th, 2022, by Redditor The_Meme_Lady_69,[2] once again talking about how the fandom is still more consumed with Chalice than him (shown below).
