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.

We first meet Toriko while he was fishing on the edge of a cliff for a Pincer Fish, before he is approached by a young chef called Komatsu, who contracts Toriko to help him catch the Gararagator on behalf of his restaurant and the IGO. Toriko agrees to assist Komatsu in its capture but expresses his view that he would also love to have a taste of its high-quality meat.

As Toriko and Komatsu left in the morning for the Baron Archipelago, the area where the Galala Gator currently resided, they pass through Baron Bog and Toriko notices some odd things going on with the creatures of the swamp. As they settle down for the night, they come across a group of starving animals, and Toriko wonders what exactly could be stealing all the food on the island. Komatsu informs him that the IGO believed the Galala Gator could actually be a capture level 8 due to its highly advanced age of around 300 years, something which excites Toriko, as he informs Komatsu that they old get tastier with age.

After begin startled by the sudden arrival of a seemingly dangerous Swamp Snake which dies before it could attack them, Toriko notices some strange leaches on the body of the anime, including a large chunk of its body missing by what he presumed to be a bite. Before they have the chance to investigate further however, the Galala Gator appears and starts to attack them. During their battle Toriko surmises that the Galala Gator has been using the Baron Leeches that it keeps in its mouth as a method of both weakening and tracking its prey, which gives the Galala Gator an easy kill as the Baron Leech’s not only drain the blood of the prey, but the wounds left by them are hard to heal, making it easy for the Galala Gator to sniff them out over great distances. Toriko then quickly ends the battle using his signature techniques to swiftly remove the head of the Galala Gator and restore balance to Baron Archipelago.

After the battle, both Komatsu and Toriko both sit down and have a taste of the Galala Gators meat, which they both enjoy tremendously. They set aside some for the IGO Contract and continue to eat well into the night. Komatsu awakens the next day and is surprised to see that Toriko ended up eating all of the meat, including the part they set aside for the contract. Toriko notes that while it tastes great, it's not quite worthy of a spot of his Full Course Menu, as they set out to return home.

Fruit of Rainbow Arc

Toriko brings a Sharkenodon to the World Ktchen.

The arc starts off with Toriko setting out from his home, a house made entirely out of sweets, in search of a Sharkenodon in the cliff caves near his home to sell at the Gourmet Wholesale Market. While there he meets Komatsu, Tom and the IGO Food Development Chief, Johannes. Johannes explains to them that the incredible Rainbow Fruit has finally grown in their private garden and that a next of Troll Kong have set up their nest around it, making it impossible for the IGO to get near it. Johannes asks Toriko if he would consider going in to solve the problem, which Toriko agrees to the contract, stating that he would love to try the Rainbow Fruit out and see the "nostalgic" garden once more.

Johannes personally drives both Toriko and Komatsu to the wall of the 8th Biotope, and while there they experience the intimidating drumming sound of a Troll Kong on the other side of the massive wall, warning them not to enter into the Garden. Toriko unfazed by this intimidation tactic walks up to the extremely thick and durable wall and unleashes his 3 Ren Kugi Punch, which obliterates a large hole in the side of the wall through which Toriko and Komatsu enter into the Garden. However after walking into the Garden, Toriko is ambushed by a few Zombie Taipans that were thrown by the Troll Kong. Komatsu becomes worried for his safety but again Toriko is unfazed and just lets them bite straight into his body as he lights up a cigar tree and burns it out almost instantly, as he releases the smoke through the pores on his body, warding the Zombie Taipans away from him. he explains to Komatsu that they hate the smell of the smoke given off by the Cigar Tree. Komatsu still worried for his safety, tells Toriko that he should use some anti-venom to counter their poison, but Toriko tells him that he already has, something which confuses Komatsu.

Before Komatsu could press the issue the bridge is lowered and they cross over into the main area of the Garden. While walking through towards the Rainbow Fruit Tree, they sample some of the unique plants, until they stumble into a trap left by the Troll Kong. Toriko however manages to use a Knocking Gun on it, causing it to collapse into a ragdoll like state before it could do anything to harm them. They continue on deeper into the 8th Biotope Garden, until they finally reach the Troll Kong Nest surrounding the Rainbow Fruit Tree. Toriko begins to search for the leader of the pack, but is interrupted by an all-out attack of the Troll Kongs in the area. Toriko tells Komatsu to get onto his back and hold on tight, as he began to dodge his way through their frenzied attacks, while taking them down one by one with his Knocking Gun. As the fighting continued, Toriko managed to spot the leader of the entire pack, the Silverback itself. The silverback came out to fight Toriko directly, but Toriko ended the battle quickly by using a powerful intimidation to subjugate the beast before the fighting started, finally opening a path to the Rainbow Fruit itself.

Later, back at the Hotel Gourmet, Toriko enjoys a incredibly large, high class meal cooked by Komatsu and his fellow chefs who work at the Hotel Gourmet. When Toriko is finally finished eating the large meal prepared by the chefs, Komatsu finally brings out the hard fought desert, the Rainbow Fruit. As Toriko dug into the desert, he was completely taken aback by it's incredible and seemingly ever-changing taste, and by the time the first bite had reached his stomach, Toriko decided that the Rainbow Fruit would be his Desert Dish on his Full Course Menu, calling for Komatsu to get them something to celebrate the occasion.

Puffer Whale Arc

Shortly after the events of the Fruit of Rainbow Arc, Toriko and Komatsu both set out on another journey for Gourmet Fortune, a town near the coast where Toriko’s good friend and one of the Four Heavenly Kings, Coco lived. They decided to make the journey to see if they could capture the famous Puffer Whale ingredient, which can only be acquired ever 16 years due to breeding habits. And on the train journey to Gourmet Fortune, Toriko exchanges words with fellow Gourmet Hunter, Zonge, and also provides what alcohol he has to a kind elderly man.

When they finally arrive at Gourmet Fortune, they are greeted by Toriko’s good friend and fellow member of the Four Heavenly Kings, Coco, who takes them back to his isolated residence off the coast as they discuss recent events. While there they tell Coco their intentions to capture the Puffer Whales, and request that he assist them in the endeavour, as he would be the only one of them skilled enough to prepare it. Coco agrees to their request and the three of them set out for the one in a decade breeding area of the Puffer Whales, Labyrinthine Cave.

As they venture further into the labyrinth of tunnels in search of the lagoon where the Puffer Whales breed, they encounter some problems, and after Komatsu suddenly disappears they become very concerned. Before they have time to look for him however, Coco and Toriko and ambushed by the powerful Devil Serpent. They enter into an immense battle with the beast before finally slaying it with their combined efforts, and find Komatsu who tells them he was kidnapped by a fellow Gourmet Hunter for use as bait, and then being saved from death by the same old man from on the train who turned out to be the legendary “Knocking Master” Jiro.

They finally find their way into the breeding lagoon for the Puffer Whales and set to work capturing them with their skills in knocking. After having caught a few, Coco tries to prepare them himself only to continuously fail, at which point he passes the task of preparing them off to Komatsu. While reluctant, Komatsu braves the challenge and manages to finally remove the poison sack from a Puffer Whale after many failed attempts on his part. Komatsu then prepared them a celebratory meal using the Puffer Whales and the three of them sat down and had a small feast. Shortly after the meal, they are interrupted by the sudden emergence of a GT Robo from the water in the cave, and when Toriko and Coco realise the power of the intruder they begin to prepare for battle, only to find that it has no intention of fighting them, and simply walks straight into the tunnel network with a net full of Puffer Whales.

The group finally reach the surface once more Toriko, Coco and Komatsu prepare to head home, before the sudden arrival of an IGO helicopter with the IGO Food Development Departments Johannes inside of it, who asks Toriko for his help solving a problem in the IGOs 1st Biotope.

Regal Mammoth Arc

This arc picks up right where the Puffer Whale arc left off, with Toriko en route to the IGOs 1st Biotope with Johannes and Komatsu in tow in order to capture the Regal Mammoth. Upon arriving, they enter into the main facility and admire all of the food processing machines, before finally arriving at the main laboratory, where they had to be completely sterilized of contaminants before being granted access. After taking the lift down into the depths of the facility, they stroll through the lab before encountering an escaped Muscle Crab, but before Toriko has time to act, Chief Mansan appears from nowhere and takes it down with his Fry Pan Punch. After Toriko and Mansan exchanged a friendly greeting, he takes both Toriko and Komatsu with him to the Gourmet Coliseum to witness the legendary Battle Wolf in action.

Upon their arrival at the Gourmet Coliseum, they witness a heated battle between a Troll Kong and a Galala Crocodile, and despite taking a few hits from the Galala Crocodile, the Troll Kong eventually beats it. Mansam then leads them down to their seats in the front row to witness the next battle royal, and they are all amazed when the legendary Battle Wolf emerges from one of the gates in the arena. As they realise that the rest of the beasts in the arena are shaking with fear at the sight of the Battle Wolf, Mansam calls for Rin to use some Battle Fragrance to get them fired up and ready to fight.

As the fight begins, all of the beasts in the area attack the Battle Wolf simultaneously, but oddly, the Battle Wolf refuses to fight back, simply standing there and letting the attacks hit. At that moment Toriko notices that something is wrong with the Battle Wolf, as he asks Mansam if the Battle Wolf is actually a female. Upon hearing that the Battle Wolf is in fact a female, Toriko realises that she is with child, and decides to intervene in the battle, breaking his way into the main arena and protecting the pregnant Battle Wolf while she gives birth. Toriko causes so much chaos during the battle, that he inadvertently breaks the protective screen of the arena and it is forced to evacuate.

However the incredible moment is ruined by the arrival of the 6th Beast, the Devil Serpent, as it breaks straight through the wall of its gate and into the arena. However at the same moment, Mansam is brutally attacked by a GT Robo under the guise of the Republic of Roto’s President. The attack proved ineffective however at they began a battle in the stands, just as the Devil Serpent began its own attack against Toriko. However before it can attack, the exhausted female Battle Wolf steps in and kills it with speed and ease, something Toriko was completely shocked by as he was incapable following her movements. Toriko then realises that it exhausted the last of its strength protecting its child, but before her new born Battle Wolf could go to her side for the last time, she is struck by a laser attack from the GT Robo, heaily wounding her. In spite of this however, Toriko witnessed the Battle Wolf use the last of its strength to return to its child’s side for one last time.

Enraged by the GT Robos actions, Toriko asks Rin to watch over the Battle Wolfs as he begins a vicious onslaught against the GT Robo. Torikos attacks prove to be ineffective against the tough body of the GT Robo, and Toriko is hit with a barrage of powerful attacks causing him great injury. Toriko finally overcomes the GT Robo however by using his new ability, the Ice Pick Nail Punch, focusing the power of his Nail Punch into a single point. The power of the attack completely obliterated the GT Robos head, engulfing them in a large explosion. Toriko looks on at the broken GT Robo, but notes that his hand was damaged in the attack too. The GT Robo however tried to self-destruct to kill Toriko regardless, but the attack was mostly stopped by Mansam, who order the laser cannons in the area destroy the GT Robo before it could detonate.

In the aftermath of the attack, the GT Robos core antenna survived the onslaught, but as it tried to get away, Mansam had his animal partner Rikky, destroy it. Toriko then watches as the Battle Wolf dies with dignity, and then comforts the young child by letting him know that he was like it once, but it wasn’t alone now, adopting the young Battle Wolf and naming him “Terrycloth” in the process.

Later in the evening, Toriko and Komatsu sit down with Chief Mansam and enjoy a huge meal comprised of his entire Full Course Menu. During the meal they begin to talk about the reason they arrived there in the first place, the Regal Mammoth. However the chief expresses concern, saying he forgot all about it due to the GT Robos attack. Rin however steps in and lets them know that her brother Sunny has already arrived on the island captured the beast and is bringing it to them as they speak. Toriko is taken aback by the news, as Sunny is one of the Four Heavenly Kings like himself and Coco, and a good friend of his.

Continuing on with the feast, Sunny arrives carrying a huge Regal mammoth above his head with one hand, something Komatsu is amazed by. As he gets closer to them however, he is ambushed by a collection of Gang Hoods, but they are quickly dispatched by Knocking. Sunny threw them the Regal Mammoth and introduced himself to the group, greeting Toriko in the process, and noted how strong he was becoming. As Toriko explained Sunnys abilities to Komatsu, Chief Mansam explained to the group that the Regal Mammoth Sunny captured was only a child, and that the adult is still out there somewhere. The news shocks everyone, as the child itself was of an incredible size, however they prepare to move out into the Garden to track down and capture the adult Regal Mammoth.

As they journey through the massive garden, they eat many of the delicacies along the way, however they are suddenly ambushed by a small collection of Rock Drums. Sunny however refused to fight them as he didn’t deem them worth fighting due to their ugly appearance, however after some coercion from Toriko, Sunny finally pitched in and help out, and Toriko and the others watched on as Sunny took care of the Rock Drums himself with his unique abilities. After the battle is concluded, they begin to prepare the Rock Drum as a meal before they continue on with their journey, however Sunny forgot to use Knocking on the Rock Drum and it got up and kicked them far away from their current location, splitting them into two teams of, Komatsu and Sunny, and Toriko and Rin. Toriko and Rin were making their way through the dangerous White Forest, having to find a path through numerous wild and powerful beasts. However they eventually got surrounded and Toriko requested that Rin hit him with the illegal Battle Fragrance so he could then and scare them, and when she used it on him, Torikos intimidation became even more potent, managed to scare all of the wild beasts in the area far away from them.

However they both realised that one beast remained, a small Obsaurus, which Toriko deduces was likely claimed as a partner by one of the invading GT Robo and ordered to try and hold them back. Toriko then resolves to take it as his own partner, and prepares to fight it. After a tough fight Toriko and Rin manage to tame the Obsaurus and move on into the Devil Athletics area of the Garden, a collection of paths with various powerful monsters along each path, some of which are easier to get through than others. Toriko and Rin having chosen one of the paths get stuck fighting a Mysterious Bird Rubanda, until Terrycloth managed to find his way back to Toriko and Rin and forced it back before they could come to harm. Terry then led them out of the Devil Athletics via a much safer path, something Toriko was very thankful for. Terry however sensed an enemy approaching from inside Devil Athletics and turned around to fight it, while Toriko and Rin went onwards towards the Regal Plateau.

Toriko and Rin finally arrive at the Regal Plateau, just as the Regal Mammoth is falling off of the Regal Cliff. Noticing that both Sunny and Komatsu were climbing the cliff face and were in danger of being crushed, he made a large hole in the ground below with his Knife so they could avoid being crushed by the massive beast. The battle was not yet over however as many Heavycliff creatures were also forced down into the ground by the Regal Mammoth, and now began to rise from the ground and prepare to fight the group. Just as Toriko and Sunny prepare to fight, the Heavycliffs are suddenly paralyzed by nerve poison by the sudden arrival of Coco.

After exchanging some quick greetings, Coco Informs them that he has already poisoned the Regal Mammoth and that it should take effect soon, however they are once again interrupted by the arrival of another GT Robo. Coco however, tells them to continue on inside the Regal Mammoth and acquire the Jewel Meat, and that he would stay outside and hold back the GT Robo. Taking this chance Toriko and the others move on towards the Regal Mammoth. Before they could decide on a point of entry however, they are sucked in through the snout of the Regal Mammoth and then blown into its mouth. Sunny and Toriko manage to save the group from being crushed by its massive teeth before they began to make their way down into its body towards the Jewel Meat. When they finally landed in one of the organs, they are met by another GT Robo sent by the Gourmet Corps, however Sunny takes up the task to fight and hold back this one while he tells Toriko and the others to continue down into the Regal Mammoth, stating that only Torikos nose would be capable of navigating the maze that is the insides of the Regal Mammoth and finding the Jewel Meat.

Toriko, Komatsu and Rin briefly stop deeper in the Regal Mammoth for a short rest, and Komatsu and Rin take the time to try some of the meat of the Regal Mammoth. Toriko however tells them to hurry along and keep on moving, as the Regal Mammoth was actively trying to remove all foreign substances from its body. Toriko also couldn’t shake the feeling that they were being closely followed another GT Robo, which was being piloted by the man from the Lagoon in the Puffer Whale cave. Against the odd however, they finally make it down into the area where the Jewel Meat is, but Toriko is shocked to see that the GT Robo had finally caught up with them. Instantly powering himself up to his maximum levels and releasing a powerful intimidation to try and scare the intruder away, he screamed for Komatsu and Rin to get out of the way, attacking the GT Robo with a 5 Hit Nail Punch. The attack mostly failed however, as the GT Robo slapped Toriko away casually and only suffered light damage when the attack grazed his shoulder. Rin then takes it upon herself to attack the GT Robo, but her attack is swiftly dodged and she is impaled through the stomach by its arm.

Toriko wakes up briefly to see Rin being impaled by the GT Robo, and manages to punch it straight through the tissue of the organ they were in before it could attack Komatsu. After sharing a few short words with the dying Rin, Toriko became enraged and turned to fight the GT Robo once more with renewed resolve. Torikos Gourmet Cells had begun to undergo evolution, and he has subconsciously activated Autophagy, the ability where you begin to break down your own bodies muscles and organs in order to keep it operating at 100% efficiency. Toriko couldn’t keep this up for long however, due to how dangerous it is for the body, and so began a brutal onslaught against the GT Robo, exchanging powerful attacks with one another until finally Toriko is heavily wounded by the GT Robo and blasted further from the group by its laser attack.

Ironically however, the attack blasted Toriko straight into the cavern of the Jewel Meat, and after consuming a part of the meat, Torikos Gourmet Cells underwent a powerful Evolution and his body repaired at an incredible rate and became stronger as a result. Toriko then went back to the GT Robo and confronted it once again. Toriko discovered that the pilots name was actually Starjun, and requested that Starjun turn off the GT Robos “sense of pressure excess”, a system in place to reduce incoming damage to the pilot. Starjun complies with his request, mockingly saying that he doesn’t need it. Toriko increases his muscle mass exponentially and prepares to unleash a new ability, however he is stopped by Starjuns attack. After exchanging a few more attacks and heavily damaging Starjuns GT Robo, he unleashes his new 10 Hit Nail Punch, which completely destroys Starjuns GT Robo entirely.

After realising that Rin was in fact still alive, they all managed to get out of the Regal Mammoths body in one piece with the Jewel Meat. Later own they had a huge celebratory meal, and together they ate the wonderful Jewel Meat. Both Toriko and Sunny were so taken aback by the taste of the Jewel Meat that they both wanted it on their Full Course Menu, however Sunny eventually won the rights in the end.

BB Corn Arc

The arc begins three months after the Regal Mammoth incident, and opens with Toriko cooking a rather large meal for himself. Later while searching for more food to eat, he happens across Terry Cloth, who caught a Cheese Rabbit for him. Despite Toriko saying Terry could have it instead as he caught it, Terry refused to consume it at all. Toriko becomes concerned that Terry has not ate anything in the three months that have passed since she came to live with him, and decided to head to the World Kitchen to see if he could find any information about what he could do for Terry. While there he meets up with Tom, and they both convene in a bar later in the evening to discuss Terrys lack of appetite. It’s there that they figure out that Terrys appetite for food could only be sated by ingredients from the Gourmet World, a hostile and dangerous area of the planet. Tom however tells Toriko that an elderly drunk man, had brought an ingredient back from the Gourmet World that he believes Terry could eat, the BB Corn.

With this new information, Toriko and Terry head out for the only place in the Human World where one could find BB Corn, Wul Jungle. When they arrive at the area near the Wul Jungle, Toriko samples some of the ingredients around the vicinity, and after having settled down for the night to rest, they head out in the morning for the edge of the Wul Jungle.

Toriko and Terry, both make their way through Wul Jungles “Plant Hell”, however things take a turn for the worse when Toriko suffers an injury, and Terry gets trapped by a Goblinplant. Terry however manages to escape, and after a tough fight, manages to use the surrounding plants and her speed to take it down, however she is somewhat wounded in the process. Toriko praises her newfound strength regardless, and they both move up above the canopy of the jungle to find the BB Corn growing out of the canopy. Toriko manages to cut free, one small ear of BB Corn, however he noted that even that was a hard affair due to how tough the stalk of the BB Corn was. Both he and Terry then try their hand at getting into the much larger ear of BB Corn, and spend a very long time trying to remove the stalks from around the ear itself to get at the kernels inside. However when they finally managed to reach them through the tough fibre, Toriko finds it near impossible to pull them out. Not defeated however, Toriko hits the BB Corn with his 5 Nail Punch and managed to free some of the kernels from the ear itself.

As Toriko and Terry prepare to leave the Wul Jungle and head off to the Wul Volcano to cook the BB Corn, Toriko notices that a nearby ear of BB Corn was completely removed from the stalk in one clean cut, something which completely shocks him, however they both leave for the Wul Volcano regardless. When they arrive at the Wul Volcano, Toriko and Terry spend a rather long time trying to prepare the kernels of BB Corn, until finally they managed to cook one correctly, and the entire area is flooded with cooked BB Popcorn. Both Toriko and Terry begin to feast on it with excitement, and Toriko is so taken aback by the taste and texture of the BB Corn, he decides to make it the Hors D'oeuvre dish on his Full Course Menu.

However, before either of them could celebrate, they are interrupted by the arrival of the Gourmet Corps member Grinpatch, who consumes all of the BB Popcorn with his straw, and the proceeds to try and consume Terry too. Toriko manages to stop him just in time however, and they exchange words with one another. Grinpatch informs Toriko that his organization is going after the legendary ingredient GOD, which shocks Toriko at first, until he informs Grinpatch that he intends for GOD to be the Main Dish on his Full Course Menu. Toriko and Grinpatch then begin to fight, and after suffering some minor wounds, Toriko, thanks to the Jewel Meat he consumed earlier, managed to evolve not just his body, but his attacks even further and gained the ability to use ranged variants of his Fork and Knife abilities. Toriko begins to utilize his newfound abilities against Grinpatch, but they ultimately prove ineffective. However Toriko manages to cut through Grinpatchs immensely durable straw in the confrontation, before the latter retreats with an entire ear of BB Corn, the same ear Toriko noticed was missing in the Wul Jungle, carried by his Jack Elephant animal partner.

Toriko and Terry manage to make their way back to civilization after their bout with Grinpatch, and they bring a good supply of the BB Popcorn with them for everyone to try. At the end of the arc, Toriko asks Komatsu at the Hotel Gourmet, if he would want to join him on his trip into Gourmet Town, which leads directly into the next arc.

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
