With this information out of the way, let us start up the first set of matches for this First Round of the tournament:
Known as the Dark Chef, this androgynous 500-year old man was well known as a Super Cook centuries earlier before his dark deeds and rule breaking led him to be an infamous name as such where his name was lost in the annals of history. He is the leader of NEO, a secret organization between the world's wealthiest individuals seeking the holy ingredients of Acacia's Full Course Menu. He was involved in the revival of the Four Beast, a giant plant-like monster that was unleashed to eat up the human populace to use in its spawning of monsters and whom gave the Four Heavenly Kings difficulty when they tried to stop its wrath. This is Toriko's Joa.
And his opponent...
This Level 5 esper in Academy City is obsessed with wanting to be the strongest of the espers, even if he must kill others in order to do so. He was involved with the organization SCHOOL that attempted to defy Aleister Crowley's authority in his plans with the Accelerator Project. He attempts killing Accelerator at several points in the franchise to gain his status as the number one Level 5 esper in Academy City, even able to regenerate his entire body through use of his Dark Matter ability to have the opportunity of facing Accelerator again. This is the ToAru franchise's Kakine Teitoku.
A former spirit detective, this young man was devoted to his job of stopping demon threats that came upon the human world. But upon seeing the tortures humanity would unleash upon demons, this man's fragile psyche became shattered with the revelation and developed a multiple personality disorder as his way to cope with the trauma. Mentally scarred from this experience and desiring vengeance on humanity for their depraved acts, this man sought to destroy the barrier between the human and demon worlds so the demon world's strongest demons could be unleashed on humanity, leading Yusuke and his comrades to have to confront him. This is Yuyu Hakusho's Shinobu Sensui.
And his opponent...
A well-known mobile suit pilot fighting for the Principality of Zeon, this man is well known for his charismatic personality and formidable fighting skills on the battlefield as a Newtype. Serving as villain, anti-hero and hero at various points in the Universal Century continuity of the Gundam franchise, this man is known to manipulate others at points for his personal cause in trying to protect Spacenoids against the threat of Earth Federation influence. At his peak as a threat, he was the leader of the revived Neo Zeon faction who plotted to drop the massive asteroid base, Axis, onto the Earth. His constant rival that stood against him in his goals was the young Federation Gundam pilot, Amuro Ray. This is the Gundam franchise's Char Aznable.
