Notably, a lot of the Mangaka that first started in TheNineties were inspired by him, including YoshihiroTogashi (''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', ''Manga/LevelE''), MasashiKishimoto (''Manga/{{Naruto}}''), and even Creator/EiichiroOda (''Manga/OnePiece''). In fact, Akira Toriyama and Eiichiro Oda worked together on a Manga in 2006 called ''Manga/CrossEpoch'', a crossover that contains ''Dragon Ball'' and ''One Piece'' characters. Considering that some of these Mangaka have already started to inspire others to join the Shonen industry, you could call him the God of Shonen manga.[[note]]Though if you think about it, there are three mangaka who would be considered the God of manga period. Osamu Tezuka is the father, Go Nagai is the son and Akira Toriyama is the holy spirit. Eiichiro Oda is the pope or something, while the followers with popular shonen series' (like the ones influenced above) are high priests.[[/note]]

* SelfDeprecation: When his AuthorAvatar went to the future in ''Manga/DoctorSlump'', it turned out that his future self has changed his profession to [[spoiler:beggar]].* VitriolicBestBuds: With Artist Creator/MasakazuKatsura, just look at their interview on their joint projects (''Sachie-chan'' and ''Jiya'') and notice how they nag each other to death.

* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: Toriyama has admitted that he ''never'' planned anything out and made it up as he went along. The fact that this actually worked is quite impressive.

* ExecutiveMeddling: His editors frequently made him change ideas that they felt were unwise or simply didn't like. It's the reason why, in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', the Androids Trunks came back to fight were #19 and 20, then, no, actually they were #17 and 18, and then Cell appeared, and then he had several transformations.... In each case, it was Toriyama's editor (Yū Kondō in this example) going, "Yeah, no. Try something else." His editor for the Buu arc was comparatively lenient, which is perhaps why the story in that part is DenserAndWackier, as well as all over the place from a narrative standpoint. On the other hand, he did insist that Toriyama give up on his plan for Gohan to replace Goku as the main character (the ending of the Cell arc was meant to be a PassingTheTorch moment).



* ReclusiveArtist: He's "not good with people", and prefers the company of his family and pets to others. To understand why, you need look no further than [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JOnoZXtIN8 this 1983 interview]] on ''Tetsuko's Room'' shortly after he got married: the awkward silence is ''amazing''. Initially, he (grudgingly) allowed himself to be photographed, and even portrayed himself as something of a character in his own right, but he evidently became so overwhelmed by his fame during ''Manga/DragonBall'' that he stopped showing his face in photographs and only rarely makes public appearances. The one good photo we have of him from the past ''two decades'' is from 2002, when he went to New York for the launch of the North American ''Shonen Jump'' magazine. He goes out in public so rarely that he's occasionally rumored dead by fans panicked at his (deliberate) lack of statements or creative output.
** 201314 is a rare exception for him in that he's given a plethora of interviews (at least 10) in connection with ''Anime/DragonBallZ: Battle of Gods'' and ''JacoTheGalacticPatrolman'', but he's still as unwilling to show his face as ever.
