Ryuu is an old friend of the Saiseiya Yosaku and the former boss of the Gourmet Yakuza.
The only part of Ryuu's history that is known is that he was the former Boss of the Gourmet Yakuza up until sometime after the Century Soup Arc. He also became a member of the Elite 0th Biotope in recent times.
Ryuu is a supporting protagonist created by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi for the series Toriko.
Ryuu was the leader of the Gourmet Yakuza but left the position presumably in order to help acquire Acacia's full course along with the 0th Biotope.
Ryuu is a tall and very muscular man with dark skin and multiple scars all over his body. He has long black hair and a thick mustache and very prominent eyebrows. He has a furrowed brow akin to Starjun or Zebra.
Since Ryuu has been nothing but silent, it is his silence that gives an indication of his personality. He seems to not easily be bothered by words and remains silent when verbally attacked, even when fellow 0th Biotope member Rapp accused him of treachery with no basis for it other than that he was the newest member in the 0th Biotope.
Match - Match was Ryuu's second in command within the Gourmet Yakuza and left the position of boss to Match upon his stepping down. Match holds a great deal of respect for Ryuu and does not know why he left the Gourmet Yakuza.
Ryuu arrives at the 0th Biotope meeting with his 2 men at the summons of Ichiryuu. He is silent for the whole ordeal even when accused of possible betrayal from Rapp, but he is quickly defended by Saiseiya Yosaku, who tells Rapp to shut up and that Ryuu was not that kind of man.
Ryuu, with 2 men and Rapp arrive at the Continent of Beginnings. They converge with Bishokukai Aid to the Executive Chef Niceny and insults the Biotope members, preparing to engage them in combat.
Nothing has been revealed about Ryuu's hunting Method or power scheme thus far, but given that he is a member of the elite 0th Biotope among the likes of National Treasure Chin Chinchin, Saiseiya Yosaku and Sharpener Melk, it can be assumed that Ryuu is one of the strongest men alive.
