What exactly was "The War"?
It's referenced several times throughout the game, but I can never really figure out what is meant by it. Are we supposed to know a bit about it from the first game, or perhaps is it intentionally left very obscure?

The first game had no mention of a war to my knowledge.

If the chef mentioned it, it may be something of a delusion, just something to give him a drive to hate octodad.

Possibly, though on the boat Scarlet becomes the first person to mention The War. Though, you could still be right about that, maybe he was in World War 2 and went loopy for it and rationalizing the war as something entirely different lol.

He mentioned it 2 times in the last level, once when chasing octodad, and one last time when Octodad forgave The Chef for chasing him around. Mabye they could have some information at the wiki?

It was supposedly about international fishing rights.

Maybe Chef Fujimoto went insane during the war and hallucinated that his enemies were actually fish.

The U.S vs Russia = The Cold War (nuclear weapons, spying.)
The U.K vs Iceland = The Cod War (fishing. seriously. fishing.)

Winner? 'Merica
