Cho Hakkai's gluttony

Cho Hakkai is a Japanese name for Zhu Bajie also known as Pigsy in English versions. A character from the 16th century Chinese novel Journey to the West (translated as Saiyuki in Japanese adaptations.)

"Zhu Bajie, also named Zhu Wuneng, is one of the three helpers of Xuanzang (Genjo Sanzo in Japanese) in the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. He is called "Pigsy" or "Pig" in many English versions of the story."

"Zhu Bajie is a complex and developed character in the novel. He looks like a terrible monster, part human and part pig, who often gets himself and his companions into trouble through his laziness, gluttony, and propensity for lusting after pretty women. He is jealous of Sun Wukong (Japanese: Son Goku) and always tries to bring him down."
