Daisu Tsashimi is a sushi chef that first appeared in Cars 2. He is an Alza Tutto Forklift that is painted white, with black lining around his doors and eyes, as well as a white and red headband. He is the brother of Edamame Tsashimi.
In Cars 2, Daisu is seen at the WGP welcome party in Tokyo, Japan. During the party, Mater comes to his stand and asks what he has that's free. He doesn't respond however, as Mater quickly reacts when he sees the wasabi, mistaking it for pistachio ice cream. He asks for some, and Daisu gives him a small morsel, confused as to why Mater seems to want a large amount of it. Eventually, Daisu gives him an entire box of wasabi, which Mater then tries to consume, only to cause great pain in his mouth, leading him to burst onto the stage as Miles Axlerod is speaking to Lightning McQueen. After drinking water out of the display on the stage, Mater turns to the audience and informs them to not eat the wasabi, as "it has turned". This chain of events is later recalled during Mater's flashback.
