Toriko, the "Glutton" is the main character of his titular series, Toriko, a Gourmet Hunter and one of the Four Heavenly Kings.

Origin

While delivering food to a poverty stricken country, Ichiryuu and Mansam found a young, orphaned Toriko lying on the ground. Noticing the potential he saw in the young child, Ichiryuu decided to take Toriko in and train him in the ways of the Bishokuya. He was presumably injected with gourmet cells and underwent harsh training alongside Sunny, Zebra and Coco. After the training Toriko went on to become one of the greatest and well known Bishokuya for discovering the most ingredients in the Gourmet Age.

Creation

Toriko is created by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro as one of the main characters. At this moment, there is no information on any inspirations used in Sunny's concept design or his name. Like most Shonen heroes, it's assumed that Shimabukuro is inspired by Akira Toriyama's character, Son Goku of Dragon Ball Z. The following reasons are the color of Toriko's vest, his appetite, and his drive to fight tougher opponents.

Evolution

Appearance

Toriko is a tall, blue haired man with a medium build. He has a 3 clawed scar on the left side of his face. He usually wears an orange jumpsuit with a black shirt underneath.

Personality

Despite being a hunter, Toriko is a caring, compassionate purpose. He is quite protective of his two main partners, Komatsu, the 5 star chef, and Terry, the legendary battlewolf cub. During a battle between multiple high level monsters, Toriko punched through 2.5 meters of super-reinforced plate to help Terry's when she went into labor. During his ascension to the sky to find Ozone Herb, Toriko allowed Komatsu to ride on his back while he fought through the deadly storms in the thin atmosphere.

Toriko does not enjoy killing animals for no purpose. He has no qualms with killing for food, but he prefers not to kill anything he has no interest in eating. He is very particular about the foods in his full course meal, wanting it to be the best, he picks only the rarest, flavorful foods he discovers to serve in his meal. He also puts much faith in his partners, believing that Terry, as only a cub, can surpass his own strength when she needs to. He also puts his faith in Komatsu's cooking abilities, allowing Komatsu the one drop of Century Soup, believing that Komatsu will the be able to replicate the recipe, a feat nobody in the world had been able to do before.

Note: For his Full Course Menu, please see concept page.

Relationships

  • Komatsu - The two are close friends who go out on adventures together most of the time. With Komatsu being a chef, Toriko gets treated to meals after Toriko finishes hunting. While Komatsu trusts Toriko with his life, Toriko places a lot of trust in Komatsu's cooking skills.
  • Zebra - While always getting into fights with one another, Toriko seems to be the one to most get along with Zebra out of all of the heavenly kings. While fighting the Salamander Sphinx and a Nitro, they have great team work together.

Food Honor (Shokugi)

-Food Honor is a mental concept that can be learned at the shokurin temple. it's main principle is infinite gratitude towards food. to master Food Honor means to have impeccable food etiquette and mental control. these are the following benefits that come from learning Food Honor:

*Correction of Movement: one who has unproper movements cannot possibly eat the top delicate ingredients such as the bubble fruit. correction of movement also grants the user a special type of agility that allows to keep up with even stronger or faster opponents. the movements from food honor masters are so delicate the opponent doesnt even realize he has been killed. pro chefs can effectively reduce animals to the bones and yet they still would move and act as if they were alive. lastly it allows the user to reduce the ammount of energy needed to create techniques, thus boosting their stamina up to 10 times.

*Food Immersion: The Food Immersion is a secret technique passed down by Master Chin Chin which consists of allowing insane ammounts of calories into one's body without affecting the external appearance of the user, this equals more stamina and more energy resources for the gourmet cells. Toriko's body pre food honor could alredy hold around 3.5 million calories, but with food honor this number has increased up to an aproximate of 30 million calories.

Pre-Shot Routine

The Pre-Shot routine consists of a series of movements done before an action in order to increase its success rate. in the real world it could be compared to the movement a golf player does before hitting the ball. Toriko raises the effectiveness of his techniques by clashing his hands and then thanking for food.

Conduct Of The King

The conduct of the king, also known as the ultimate routine or the ultimate impression is a mental technique which focuses on bringing an image the user has on his mind into reality.the technique consumes a massive ammount of calories and it cant be used for prolonged periods of time. not even food honor masters can maintain the impression for long.

Benefits

  • advanced healing: the user can heal wounds just by believing it.
  • success rating increase: the user can bring an attack on his mind into reality
  • outcome of events: toriko can change the outcome of an attack just by believing it.

Intuition:

Toriko makes use of his massive battle experience to get a "feel" on the opponent. This makes toriko detect weak spots on creatures and allows him to develop even more powerful techniques on the fly without wasting too much time.
