* {{BFS}}: Or about as close as a kitchen knife can get to becoming one anyway. Wielded by Takashi Mera in 'Battle Tuna' against Iron Chef Michiba. The blade was long enough to be comparable to a samurai's short sword... naturally lampshaded throughout the entire battle.

* DoesNotLikeSpam: Fukui hates bell peppers. And Kaga does not like udon, which was a source of amusement in one udon battle.

Hence the basic concept for ''Ryouri no Tetsujin'' ("Ironmen of Cooking"), better known as ''Iron Chef''. The classic format is this: The presenters of the program offer a theme ingredient; the challenger and the Iron Chef he has chosen to oppose are given one hour to create a full meal -- between three and five courses, usually, ''all'' of which have to use the theme ingredient in some way. A panel of tasters judges and rates the dishes served, and the points they give are tallied up at the end to decide "whose cuisine reigns supreme."

** Kandagawa to all the Iron Chefs in general, really, particularly Michiba. He's battled Iron Chefs a total of ''five'' times, and numerous apprentices of his did the same before the Ohta. His final tally was three wins, two losses. [[note]]He beat Chen in 1994, Nakamura in 1997, and Sakai in 2001; he lost against Michiba in 1994 and Sakai in 1995.[[/note]] His relationship with Michiba was particularly like this, as despite their differing visions of Japanese cuisine and their heated rivalry, each chef deeply respected the other and his skills. Kandagawa even sent flowers to Michiba's restaurant when Michiba recovered from the illness that knocked him out of service for two months, and appeared at Michiba's first battle after his recovery to support Michiba despite the challenger being much closer to Kandagawa in background and cooking philosophy (a Kyoto-based chef with a traditionalist orientation).

* ChefOfIron: Occasionally, chefs that have had some martial arts training come in. A notable example would be Lin Kunbi (Note: subject to SpellMyNameWithAnS), who was a six-degree black belt in karate, and challenged both Michiba (initiating the first overtime battle) and Nakamura.

** Once or twice [[goo.gl/0ZIEGf Akebono,]] a sumo wrestler (specifically a ''yokozuna''--the highest rank), would be one of the judges. On some dishes he was given a bigger portion. (Also, besides being a sumo wrestler, Akebono was American, a country [[UsefulNotes/CuisinesInAmerica well-known for unusually large portion sizes]].)[[note]]Akebono was born Chad Rowan in Hawaii; he is of Native Hawaiian, Cuban, and Irish descent.[[/note]]
