|Toriko is the main protagonist of the series and one of the best Gourmet Hunters in the world. He is known by many as one of the "Four Heavenly Kings", a man with an almost insatiable appetite and immense power and strength that serves him well on his personal quest for the best foods and ingredients to add to, and finally finish, his full-course menu. Toriko is one half of the combo that he has formed with his friend and chef, Komatsu.|
|Terry Cloth is Toriko's Battle Wolf, animal partner. Toriko adopted him after the death of his mother in the Gourmet Coliseum. He has a very selective appetite and will only eat food that has come from or resides in the dangerous "Gourmet World". His species was regarded as one of the "Eight Kings" of the Gourmet World. Terry shares a very strong bond with Toriko and see him as some type of father figure.|
|Coco is a good friend of Toriko and one quarter of the Four Heavenly Kings. Like Toriko, he is a powerful Gourmet Hunter with a large appetite and impressive full-course menu to go with it. Unlike Toriko who uses his superior strength to overwhelm foes, Coco uses his very unique abilities in conjunction with cunning and strategy to bring down his foes.|
|Kiss is the animal partner of Coco and is one of the last known Emperor Crows in the entire world. He shares a very strong bond of friendship with Coco, similar to the bond Terry and Toriko have. Kiss allows Coco easy transportation by flying him where he needs to go but also provides him with transportation to Coco's house which is otherwise inaccessible without the help of Kiss.|
|Sunny is one of the Four Heavenly Kings, and a friend of Toriko and Coco. A man with a strange fixation on "Beauty", he hates it when anything appears to be ugly or not to his liking, made clear when his entire full course meal is built around Skin Care and Nutritional Value. Sunny bands together with his three brothers, for all intents and purposes, and is hoping that along the way he finds the final ingredient for the desert dish of his full-course menu, EARTH.|
|Quinn placeholder text|
|Zebra is the final member of the Four Heavenly Kings, and regarded as both the strongest and the most savage of all four. His relationship with the other Four Kings is rocky, as he only tends to get along with Toriko who seems to understand him the most out of the other two.

|Ichiryuu is the president of the entire International Gourmet Organization (IGO for short), one of the disciples of the legendary Gourmet Hunter Acacia, and considered to be one of the most powerful men in the world.

His full-course menu is comprised of rare and extremely hard to acquire ingredients, which are all contained in near unbreakable chests located in all 8 levels of the Biotope. The Ingredients are so rare that he has never found a chef capable of actually preparing his full-course menu, and has instructed his "sons" with not only acquiring the ingredients out of the chests, but finding a chef who is able to cook and prepare them.|
|Mansam is the Development Bureau Director and the Gourmet Research Facility Chef for the IGO, this makes him one of the highest ranking members in the entire IGO. Mansam is an old friend of Toriko and the other Four Heavenly Kings, and treats them much like he would family.

He has grown considerably over the duration of the series.|
|Rin is the younger sister of Sunny, one of the famed Four Heavenly Kings. She is employed at the Gourmet Coliseum where she uses different fragrances and perfumes to manipulate the animals state of mind, hence her title of Beast Tamer. Rin also appears to be infatuated with Toriko, having girly outbursts around him and generally fawning over him when he is near her, and oddly enough she also seems to get along well with Zebra because he tends to be very civil around her. Sunny has noted that she tends to favour sweet foods when he used his feelers on her.|
|Komatsu is a timid yet enthusiastic young 5 star Chef who joins Toriko on his journey to acquire and cook the most exquisite foods and ingredients in the world. Previously he was the Head Chef of Hotel Gourmet owned by the IGO.
