— Jean-Pierre, answering Skwisgaar's question

Jean-Pierre is Dethklok's French chef, the most recent in a long line to cater to the band. He is passionately loyal to his employers, knowing he is risking permanent injury and death by working for the world's most successful metal band. According to Skwisgaar, all of the chefs previously employed by Dethklok died in various accidents (such as one who had his face smashed in by a hovercraft), a fate that Jean-Pierre has (so far) narrowly avoided.

In the first episode, Jean-Pierre is mangled when a stray firework missile ejects him from the band's helicopter and into its rotor blades. The blades slice him into several pieces, making it necessary to connect them together via a complex and strange-looking machine in order to keep him alive. After realizing that they couldn't feed themselves due to their own incompetence and total unfamiliarity with such mundane elements as grocery shopping, the band sewed him back together. However, they did so very poorly, which gave Nathan the inspiration for the song "Sewn Back Together Wrong," in addition to giving Jean-Pierre a hideous and mutilated appearance (some parts were sewn on backward). Despite the dubious quality of his reconstruction Jean-Pierre returned to work enthusiastically, and his current condition does not appear to have adversely affected his skills as a chef.

On the episode Birthdayface Jean-Pierre is indirectly responsible for the death of the Queen of Denmark: having been asked by Nathan to bake a "totally metal" cake for Murderface's birthday, he took the request literally and made a cake with mercury frosting. Though he warned one of the people, who was amazed by the frosting design, not to sample the frosting as it was made of mercury and it would kill them, the Queen took a taste before he could stop her; she subsequently died of mercury poisoning.


Jean in pieces

Despite looking heavily incapacitated, he continues to work as Dethklok's personal chef. He makes good coffee, which Nathan compliments in French and gets punched by Toki when he's feeling ignored. In an extra in season 4, it's revealed that he cannot breathe with his mouth closed and thus is always making heavy breathing noises. However, he can speak even in this new condition, as stated during Murderface's birthday, where he prevents someone to eat Murderface's cake, warning that the frosting is mercury.


  • During the first few seconds of The Curse of Dethklok, Jean-Pierre is seen with a rosary and mumbling "I am a gear in the wheel of the klok. I fear not my mortality." This is referring to the song The Gears, which was released long after this episode was made. Fans debate whether this means Dethklok performs this song to all new employees or whether Jean-Pierre himself is a Klokateer (if he is, his brand has never been seen).
