Warly begins the game with a Portable Crock Pot that lets him cook exclusive recipes, and a Chef Pouch that allows him to keep food for longer than normal. Warly gets hungry 33% faster than normal, but he has a maximum Hunger of 250 to make up for it. Warly's chef background and appetite in French cuisine means he dislikes raw or cooked ingredients, preferring and having more benefits from Food cooked in a Crock Pot. Warly also likes some variety to his daily meals, and suffers penalties if he eats the same foods in the same day or two. Overall, Warly's perks are suited for a nomadic playstyle, and aim to add some variety to the players' culinary choices.
Main article: Portable Crock Pot
Warly begins his adventure with a Portable Crock Pot; in addition to the functions of a normal Crock Pot, it can cook four special food items: Sweet Potato Souffle, Monster Tartare, Fresh Fruit Crepes, and Mussel Bouillabaise. The Portable Crock Pot can be carried around and placed at any time, so Warly does not have to build a Crock Pot in order to cook his meals. In addition, Warly starts with a Chef Pouch that doubles the life of Food items placed in it; he also knows its crafting recipe (1 Cloth and 1 Rope).
Warly gains 33% more Hunger, Health, and Sanity from Crock Pot meals, letting him regain more Health and Sanity than other Characters from those meals. If the food would reduce any of these attributes, the amount is decreased by 33% instead.
In addition to a 33% faster hunger drain, Warly gains only 70% of the Hunger, Sanity, and Health from raw foods, 80% from dried foods, and 90% from foods cooked over fire. If the food has negative effects on these attributes, the effect is increased by 30%, 20% and 10% respectively instead. Ideally, his food should always be cooked in a Crock Pot, which can take valuable time depending on what was cooked.
Additionally, Warly likes variety in his diet. He remembers all food items eaten for 1.75 days since the last time they are eaten; if he eats the Food items that he remembers eating, he only gains a percentage of his normal Hunger, Sanity, and Health granted by the Food Item, while the negative effects are amplified by the same percentage. The percentage depends on how many times the food item is eaten before it is forgotten. First repetition of the food item applies 10% penalty, the second 20%, the third 35%, the fourth 50% and finally the fifth repetition applies 70% penalty on the food values. Any further repetition do not increase this penalty.
- Since the penalty for eating the same meal in a row goes away after 1.75 Days, Warly can just keep eating Meaty Stews or Fresh Fruit Crepes without changing his diet, since those meals are easy to make and give enough Hunger points for 2 Days; by the time Warly needs to eat it again, he will have forgotten the meal and be able to reap its full benefits.
- Between the penalties for eating other foods and the bonuses from Crock Pot meals, Warly should always try to cook his meals in a Crock Pot. Make sure to consider the cooking times when preparing his food.
- The variety penalty is treated as a multiplier when stacked with other penalties. For example, if Warly eats two of the same dried item, the second meal will only give 64% of the normal benefits.
- While the Chef Pouch ingredients require a Science Machine to prototype, they are also possible drops from hammering Crates, making it possible to create additional Chef Pouches without a Science Machine.
- Thanks to the Chef Pouch's ability to extend the time food can be carried before it spoils, Warly can travel long distances without worrying about going hungry. He can also afford to bring meals that have higher benefits but lower spoilage times.
- If the Portable Crock Pot is not needed for a time, it can be used as a temporary marker on the map.
- Warly's full belly allows him to survive for 2.5 days before hunger goes down to 0. This makes him 3rd character that can survive the longest on full belly without eating (1st being Wilba ex aeuqo with upgraded WX-78, 2nd being Wolfgang).
- Warly's voice is played by a steel drum.
- Warly was added in the Eye of the Tiger Shark update for Shipwrecked. He was the second Character to be added to the DLC during its Early Access phase.
- Before being implemented, he was known as Wastien in the game's speech files.
- His old nickname was "The Chef", and his old motto was "Bon Appetit!"
- In the game files, the code for the Coffee recipe is seen in Warly's file, meaning that at one point coffee was intended for Warly only.
- Like most other characters, Warly has bones shown in his hair when he is struck by lightning.
- Warly speaks some French. For example, whenever eating something made in a Crock Pot he says "Magnifique".
- Warly seems to be superstitious, as suggested from inspecting the umbrella item: "I will try to remember not to open indoors." This is also evidenced by him saying, "I hope it does not rain after I kill you!" when attacking a spider.
- Warly might be New Caledonian, judging by his skin tone and French influence. Moreover, Warly's region of origin could be implied by his voice instrument. The steel drum was created in Trinidad and Tobago of the West Indies in the Caribbean (An area well known for its history of piracy). Additionally, he could have roots in Louisiana due to his quote for Seafood Gumbo: "Incredible! Just like Nana used to make!".
- Warly may have been through a stage of poverty during his life, as when examining the Rain Hat, he states that it's "better than a newspaper."
- Warly says in his examination quote for the Boomerang that he has separation anxiety. Poor childhood or being taken from parents at an early age are common triggers for this form of anxiety.
- His examination quote for Volt Goats reveals that he once owned a goat.
- Some of his quotes imply that he worked as a chef. For example, his quote for examining hot Lava Spit, "A chef-cuisinier never burns his fingers." A chef-cuisiner is the French term for chef. Other quotes mention his sous chefs and saucier.
- His Rain Coat quote mentioning Paris, "For a foggy Paris evening. Or here too...," could support this since France is a traditional location for chef training.
- His quote for the Ukulele reveals that he either plays or enjoys lute music.
