Story Arcs

Puffer Whale Arc

Coco meets up with Toriko and Komatsu at the train station since Toriko requests Coco's help in hunting Puffer Whales. Coco tells Toriko that he sees no death omens on Toriko and Komatsu. However, he lies when he doesn't want to make Toriko worry about Komatsu's death omen. Deep in the Puffer Whale cave, Coco uses his extraordinary eyesight to lead his group in the cave. When Coco and Toriko confront the Serpent of Devil, the two notice Komatsu missing. Coco urges Toriko to rescue Komatsu while he hold back the beast. Toriko refuses when he asks Coco if he sees a death omen on the monster. During the battle, Coco gets caught by the serpent, and as the beast injects its venom in Coco, Coco uses this opportunity to build immunity to the serpent. After Coco's poison has immobilized the serpent, Toriko finishes off the beast with his Nail Punch. Later, Coco and the group arrive at the sandy lagoon where Coco and Toriko gather Puffer Whales. Under Coco's supervision, Komatsu successfully removes one poison sac from one whale. After dining, Coco and the group run across a black GT Robo who ignored them.

Regal Mammoth Arc

When Coco arrives on Kiss's back, he assists Toriko's gang in capturing the Jewel Meat from the Regal Mammoth. He paralyzes the Regal Mammoth with his poison and urges everyone to get inside the mammoth while he engages the GT Robo. During a heated battle, Coco uses up most of his poison in order to destroy the GT Robo by producing hydrogen sulfide. In a crater, Coco has baited the GT Robo to fire point blank range in the hydrogen sulfide gas that created a violent explosion.

Mellow Cola Arc

Coco only appeared at the beginning of this arc with Toriko, Sunny and Komatsu on the. The notorious Honey Prison is a stop in the wherein is held Zebra, the Fourth Heavenly King. Despite Toriko's plea, both Coco and Sunny abruptly refuse to aid Toriko in receiving Zebra from the prison. This is soon revealed to be because of Zebra's unreasonable attitude.

Gourmet Casino Arc

Toriko requests Coco's help in acquiring a certain rare ingredient known as the Meteor Garlic. It is rumored to be at the notoriously famous Gourmet Casino, owned and managed by Livebearer, the Underground Gourmet Boss. Coco along with Toriko, Komatsu and Match (who became the new Gourmet Mafia Boss and was seeking to put an end to Livebearer's questionable ways) make their way to Gourmet Casino, where Coco, utilizing his amazingly powerful eyes, easily won every game he joined and intentionally drew the attention of Livebearer, who through a mediary, invited them into the VIP area. There Livebearer meets with them in person and invites them to play his high stakes game of Concentration. The conditions for the battle were if Coco's team won, he would give them the Meteor Garlic but if they lost, he would get to have all of their food memories via a diabolical method he used to extract both taste memories and cooking skill memories, leaving an unfortunate victim with no memory of the foods they had. Despite Livebearer cheating, Coco's strategic skill was so brilliant that he defeated Livebearer, who in a rage, tried to force them to submit their memories but he and all his lackeys are easily dealt with by Coco and Toriko. Livebearer after receiving Knocking from Coco which neutralized most of his movement had no choice and he gives up the Meteor Garlic, however neither Coco nor Komatsu and Toriko knew how to prepare the special preparation ingredient. However the group decide to try and prepare it anyway and Coco along with Toriko and Match make their way to a dining room, expecting that Komatsu will find a way to prepare the Meteor Garlic, however Coco had a different outcome predicted. Surely enough, Komatsu, with a temporariy paralyzed Livebearer as a spectator, struggled to find the proper cooking method. After some time, Coco's knocking wore off and Livebearer was free to move. Being enraged at his loss and being considerably stronger than Komatsu, it would have been expected that Livebearer would kill Komatsu, but like so many before and since, Livebearer was so impressed by Komatsu, that rather than kill him, he willingly taught him the proper cooking method. This was the outcome Coco had envisioned all along, and from that point on, Livebearer had a change of heart for the better, giving up the Underground and becoming a respectable Chef again. With both Komatsu and Livebearer presenting the prepared Meteor Garlic, Coco, Toriko, Komatsu, Match and Livebearer eat the immensely nutritious ingredient, giving all present temporary bulging, muscular physiques, Coco being the most dramatically altered as the Meteor Garlic was most compatible with him. Afterwards, Coco enquires on Livebearer's extensive ingredient knowledge, asking him if he knew where his ultimate goal ingredient ATOM was. Livebearer said that even he did not know of it's whereabots, however he had heard a rumor about a certain Chef who might, that being Dark Chef Joa.

Four Beast Arc

President Ichiryuu via a recorded message, informed hiis 4 sons (the Four Heavenly Kings) that the legendary Four Beast would be arriving shortly, and that it threatened the existence of all of Human World. He had managed to defeat it in the past, but couldn't do so this time due to even greater matter he needed to attend to in Gourmet World. He assigned the Four Heavenly Kings to take down the beasts. However due to Zebra's impatience, he stopped the recording, cutting off an important last detail. Soon, the Four Beasts arrive and The Four Heavenly Kings meet them on the battlefield after the pitiful attempts of the Army failed to even phase the beasts. Coco takes on Invitedeath, Capture level 140, an immensely huge monstrosity and the strongest creature he had yet faced. Despite the beast's immense power, Coco managed to defeat it while remaining unharmed, as did the other three Kings with their opponent, Toriko defeating Gaoh, Capture level 127, Sunny defeating King Octopus Kong, Capture level 132 and Zebra defeating the gargantuan Mount Turtle. However, after the beasts' apparent defeat, all 4 of them dash away from the battlefield, wounds and all and make their way to the center of Human World. The important fact that Zebra hat skipped, was that the Four Beasts were merely "limbs" of the real Four Beast which had been hiding in the underground of Center Human World. Once the "limbs" arrived, the main body of the Four Beast absorbed them all and became the true Four Beast. Coco along with Toriko, Sunny and Zebra and their parter beasts Terry, Kiss and Quinn arrive shortly after, but too late to stop the beast from regaining it's full power. After individual attacks of their highest caliber and even teamwork, the Four Beasts proved too powerful and heavily injured all four of the Kings. It would have continued to torment them, but Terry, Kiss and Quinn intervene and defend their human partners. Despite all three getting injured to the brink of death, they bough Coco and his comrades enough time to create their ultimate combination technique, the Oushoku Bansan. It is a technique made of pure appetitie energy and consumes all it touches. Despite the Four Beasts fighting it, the technique proved too powerful, and the Four Beast was finally terminated. All humans it had consumed were released, and a portion of it's meat was left behind, which Coco and the other Heavenly Kings consumed, also sharing it with the millions of people present.

Cooking Festival Arc

Coco vs Grinpatch
Coco vs Grinpatch

Shortly after their victory over the Four Beast, Coco with his comrades arrive at the legendary Cooking Festival, a cooking tournament held once every four years in a stadium the size of a small city (35 square kilometers) and it holds up to one hundred million people. Only the top one hundred ranked Chef's in the world may participate. Komatsu, who had recently entered the top one hundred ranks at 88th, was invited to participate. Despite hoping to see Komatsu do well, Coco and the other Kings knew an immenent attack from the Bishokukai would take place that day. Surely enough, after the preliminaries, the Bishokukai, led by Starjun stealthily invade, attempting to kidnap the top Chefs of the world for their own benefit. Each of the Heavenly Kings engage in combat, Coco being paired against Bishokukai Vice Head Chef Grinpatch. After finding that his Poisonous Hunting Method was having no effect on Grinpatch, Coco decides to take the battle underground and he drags Grinpatch with him. Coco is not seen again until after the island-wide battle has concluded. Presumably a short time later, Coco meets with both Sunny and Zebra. Toriko was absent due to his depressed mood about his loss to Starjun and letting the latter kidnap Komatsu. There Coco explains what happened to him. The details of the battle are unknown, however according to Coco, he had reached the brink of death in his battle against Grinpatch and had nearly run out of poison, none of it working on Grinpatch to begin with. Right as he had almost lost, his Gourmet Cells themselves manifested outside of his body in a similar fashion to Sunny's Satan Hair and when he gave Grinpatch a dousing of this poison, the latter lost control and went on a crazed frenzy of destruction causing both he and Coco to burrow deeper and deeper underground. They went down so far deep into the planet that Coco came across a mysterious stone-like substance that he later discovered had Gourmet Cells. It also absorbed the calories of living things through contact and slowly grew each time it did. Coco's hypothesis is that this material had arrived at the planet hundreds of millions of years ago, but billions of years after the planet had formed, making it a comparatively young as well as an alien substance. He theorized that by the substance absorbing the energy of the planet over hundreds of millions of years, it grew and grew to such a degree that it enveloped the planet and made it many times larger than the original planet's size, perhaps explaing the reason why the world of Toriko is so gigantic.

Powers & Abilities

As one of the Heavenly Kings, Coco is a powerful opponent whose body is immune to many poisonous materials. According to Toriko, Coco has over 500 different kinds of antibodies. In addition to his powerful immune system, his eyes can detect electromagnetic lights that are produced by living beings. As a fortune teller, he can see death omens on living beings.

List of Abilities

  • Poison Membrane - Coco can form a membrane (consisting of various toxin materials) on his body to protect himself from enemy attacks. The flaws of his ability is that it consumes a lot of poison in his body, leaving him anemic since his poison glands convert his bodily fluids into poison.
  • Heighten Vision - As previously discussed in the section above, Coco's eyes can detect wavelengths of light that a normal human being cannot see. This allows him to see his enemies in pitch black environments. Like a shark, he can detect the electromagnetic lights produced by living beings.
  • Chemical Warfare - Besides producing poison, he can manipulate poison and other materials to create byproducts such as hydrogen sulfide. Being intelligent in chemistry, Coco can develop certain chemicals to aid him in battle. An example is luring an opponent in shooting in a hydrogen sulfide filled area that combusts instantly.

List of Techniques

  • Poison Cannon - Coco can shoot a large amount of poison from his fists. He first uses this move against the Serpent of Devil in the Puffer Whale Cave.
  • Poison Rifles - Coco can shoot small doses of poison from his fingertips. He first uses this technique to seal the heat pits on the Serpent of Devil.
  • Aqua Regia - A liquified poison Coco creates that is powerful enough to corrode metals instantly, even non corrosive metals.
  • Poison Bow - Coco creates a solid bow and arrow made completely out of poison. with its poisonous properties and Coco's flawless aim, he can snipe foes at tremendous distances away.
  • Mold Spear - A spear made of poison Coco creates with properties similar to that of mold spores. This attack reaches nearly the speed of light in velocity, making it extremely difficult to avoid. Coco could only use this technique once when first used, but it can be presumed that he can create more than one since his Gourmet Cells have gotten considerably more powerful.
  • Poison Sword - Coco can form a sword out of poison for close combat situations.
  • Poison virus - A highly powerful technique. It is a poison that will change its properties and endlessly adapt to the victim's body and even with extensive immunities, it will eventually find a toxin they have no immunities for and kill them.
  • Hell Poison - Another technique used only when necessary. Coco releases a toxic mist into the air that is poisonous, corrosive and flammable all at the same time, making it an ideal technique for foes with multiple defenses.
  • Machine Gun Poison - Coco shoots large pellets of poison in massive quantities, enough to target many large beasts. They are so lethal that they melt victims on contact, not even leaving their bones behind.
  • Devil Poison - To date, Coco's most powerful technique. It is his final ace in the hole. Coco's Gourmet Cells themselves manifest outside of his body and attack the unfortunate victim. It is so toxic that it caused Bishokukai Vice Head Chef Grinpatch to literally lose his mind, despite being completely immune to all of Coco's other poisonous techniques.
  • Poison Clones - Coco can create "clones" of any being constructed entirely from poison. These clones look exactly like the original being and can be used to trick creatures in eating the poison. The poison for these was able to kill multiple Gourmet World creatures.
