-->"''10 Fold, Spiked Punch!''"
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RyotaroOkiayu (Japanese, TV), Creator/TakashiKondo (Japanese, OVA), Creator/IanSinclair (English), Dafnis Fernández (Latin American Spanish)
%%* ActionDuo: With Komatsu.
* AbsurdlySharpBlade[=/=]RazorSharpHand: His Fork and Knife techniques, where he uses his hands as a fork (for stabbing) and a knife (for cutting). [[spoiler:This later extends to his legs, which are even sharper due to the legs being three or four times stronger than the arms.]]
* AdaptiveAbility: Due to his Gourmet Cells, he can adapt to the harshest environment, whether it be in a sub-zero ice cavern, low-oxygen environments or even places with high gravity. He can also gain AcquiredPoisonImmunity.
* AllLovingHero: Very merciful and kind...as long you're not two things: food or people who disrespect food.
* AntiHero: While he's definitely not bad, Toriko only fights for his own goals. That said, he ''does'' have a heart of gold.
** [[spoiler: Through CharacterDevelopment, he becomes a genuine hero. For example, while in the Gourmet World after rescuing Komatsu he spent ''the entire time'' hunting for numerous and rare ingredients to help the people of the Human World. When he comes back he shares ''all'' that food without a second of hesitation, single handedly stopping Midora's famine.]]
* ArmedLegs: His Leg Knife and Leg Fork, which are more powerful than his hands due to the legs being 3-4 times stronger than the arms. He has [[SwordBeam Flying]] variants of them as well.
* BareFistedMonk: He only ever uses his bare fists [[spoiler: (later on, his legs)]] and fighting techniques in combat.
* BarrierWarrior: His Fork Shield, which he can use to protect himself from attacks or enhance the power of his Nail Punch.
** InstantArmor: His Fork Armor, which is a suit of armor made of many many forks.
* BattleCouple: [[spoiler: With Rin]].
* BerserkButton: Hurting Komatsu and disrespecting life (ex. killing an animal without eating it).
* BigEater: Even moreso than [[DragonBall Goku]] and [[OnePiece Luffy]], which is saying ''a lot''.
* CameBackStrong: Implied after his second, brutal fight with Starjun. [[spoiler:The Eight Kings, aka ''the rulers of the [[DeathWorld Gourmet World]]'', [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling immediately realize they are in danger]] when he wakes up.]]
** The first time when he fights Starjun, he is overwhelmed by the latter until he takes the Jewel Meat and proceeds to defeat him easily, becoming much stronger than before.
* CharacterTitle: His name gives the manga and anime its title.
* ConvergingStreamWeapon: [[spoiler:His Cannon Fork, where he sends a barrage of Flying Forks that all combine into one really big Flying Fork.]]
* [[UsefulNotes/EthicalHedonism Ethical Hedonist]]: His stated life's goal is to eat lots of good food and compile his own personal ultimate full-course menu, but he also respects food and refuses to kill any creature he doesn't plan on eating.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: Toriko's Fork techniques. He literally uses his fingers to stab his prey with his finger like a fork. Later on, he develops [[FingerGun Flying Fork]], a ranged variation that allows him to impale things from a distance.
* GameBreakingInjury: [[spoiler: He loses an arm fighting Tommyrod, but thanks to a process fueled by BodyHorror, he's able to get it back.]]
* GameFace: When he's really psyched, his face contracts into a devilish grin, and a Hannya-like [[LetsGetDangerous intimidation starts.]]
* HealingFactor: After mastering Food Honor and Immersion, Toriko gains a high degree of regeneration. [[spoiler: To the point where he can regenerate his arm and leg that were cut off by Starjun and repair his broken leg in minutes.]]
* TheHero: One of ''Magazine/ShonenJump'''s smarter and older protagonists.
* HeroesFightBarehanded: Toriko fights with his bare hands, although he can also manifest a [[ItMakesSenseInContext knife and fork]] to attack stronger enemies with.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:When Komatsu is kidnapped by Starjun, he becomes sullen and loses the will to eat.]]
* {{Hunk}}: As a throwback to older Shonen heroes.
* IdiotHero: Averted. He's rather intelligent, using cunning and trickery in battle as well as being MrExposition
* ImageSong: "Fight And Eat!!"
* LargeHam: Well, he eats everything else, why not [[ChewingTheScenery the terrain as well]]?
* ManBitesMan: [[spoiler:Toriko bites and eats a chunk of flesh from Acacia. [[YouTasteDelicious Not only does he states that NEO tastes delicious, he even goes as far to say that he will make it his meat course.]]]]
* MegatonPunch[=/=]RapidFireFisticuffs: His [[SignatureMove Nail Punch]] combines these two. Its power/how many times it hits depends on how much he charges. He can also use both fists at once for double the hits.
** Also his Nail Gun, which is just the former trope, being a punch with the combined force of multiple consecutive punches.
* MrExposition: A rare main lead in {{Shonen}} example. He often relates how the biology of animals work and the economy of the Gourmet World in general.
* MuggingTheMonster: When he came to Jidar, some gangsters with guns tried to mug him. That is, '''[[TooDumbToLive they tried to use pistols to threaten a guy who can curbstomp monsters you can't scratch with a tank.]]''' Justifiable in that Jidar was not part of IGO, meaning they didn't know that he was a world-famous Gourmet Hunter.
* NiceGuy: Despite his profession and his gluttony, he is a kind man.
* TheNoseKnows: In fact it can gauge power levels and the ingredients used in recipes through the oils of the skin.
* OfficialCouple: He eventually gets together with [[spoiler:Rin]].
* OnlyOneName: He is only referred to by his first name, Toriko.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: During the Bubble Fruit Arc [[spoiler: when Toriko finally masters Honoring the Food, he eats an incredible amount of Bubble Fruits to give him a power boost. In the process the nutrients from the fruit make his hair grow really long.]]
** [[spoiler:This is implied in the Gourmet World; Toriko has slightly longer hair and some stubble and mentions that it tends to grow much quicker than normal when he's there.]]
* RatedMForManly: Of course!
* RedOniBlueOni: [[spoiler:Has a blue demon inside of him along with the red demon he usually projects. {{Inverted}} in that the blue one is apparently bad enough for even the red demon to be afraid of.]]
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: His inner demon is this.
** [[spoiler:[[UpToEleven Super Super-Powered Evil Side]]: Has a ''second'' demon inside of him stronger than the first. [[HolyShitQuotient Wow.]]]]
** [[spoiler:Recent events hint at the existence of a third demon]]
** [[spoiler: This is now confirmed, with Blue stating that Toriko's body couldn't handle the third demon's emergence for even a second.]]
** [[spoiler: His body has finally gotten to the point where he can let it out. For a few seconds after eating one of his appetite demons.]]
* SeparatedAtBirth: [[spoiler:Starjun and Toriko are actually '''TWINS'''.]]
* SwordBeam: Kinda, he learns how to use techniques similar to this trope, although they're more like "Flying" forks and knives. He can also use "[[BeamSpam rapid-fire types]]" as well. [[spoiler:He speculates that they may be composed of "Appetite Energy".]] [[spoiler:Later on, he can combine them with his sense of smell to turn them into {{Homing Projectile}}s that track the targets' scent.]]
* ThouShallNotKill: While he will kill, Toriko believes in only killing when he wants to eat. This separates him from some other Gourmet Hunters. Though he did try to kill Tommyrod, though no one can blame him, considering what a monster Tommyrod is.
* TookALevelInBadass: To give a quick example, Toriko could only do a 5 Fold Spiked Punch a couple of times before getting exhausted. Later on, he can do a 50 Fold with ease and surpasses this many times over even later on in the series.
** [[spoiler:Also, the Breath Dragon that gave him trouble when he first entered the Gourmet World, he dispatched with a single Flying Fork the second time they met.]]
** [[spoiler: Even more badass after Timeskip. He's not intimidated at all by beasts with capture levels of ''770'', is the only Heavenly King who could find Ichiryuu's Main Course by just ''smelling'' the trail Ichiryuu made long ago. Even Coco exclaims that he can't see that far into the past with his electromagnetic waves.]]
** [[spoiler: After being force fed GOD and CENTER by the goumet spirits along with his with appetite demon willingly feed itself to him, Toriko was able to make Acacia take a trip around '''a planet bigger than Neptune''' with just a single punch.]]
* UnstoppableRage: During one of the earliest arcs, after [[spoiler: the mother Battle Wolf is shot]], Toriko loses it.
* VictoryThroughIntimidation: [[spoiler: When Toriko uses "Conduct of the King: Ultimate Routine" on the Soy Milk Roads, he scares them unconscious due to the illusion of his red oni feasting on the monsters. Toriko even states that creatures below 600 are no longer a threat because of this technique.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: [[spoiler: It was actually black when he was an infant, but turned blue [[{{Foreshadowing}} for some unknown reason.]] [[SarcasmMode Probably not anything important.]] His hair turns black again after his Blue Appetite Devil temporarily leaves his body to fight the Horse King.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RomiPark (Japanese, TV), Creator/DaisukeKishio (Japanese, OVA), Creator/JoshGrelle (English), Ricardo Bautista (Latin American Spanish)
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: [[spoiler: The Derous Knife he gets from Melk II. It's sharp enough to make a giant gash in a mountain from simply ''swinging it''.]]
%%* ActionDuo: With Toriko.
* ActionSurvivor: He survived having his eardrums being burst, and it gets crazier from there.
* AscendedFanboy: Spends a lot of time fanboying over the more well-known chefs in the story that he idolizes, and it hasn't quite sunk in to him yet that he himself is now a famous chef with plenty of his own fanboys. [[spoiler:This is especially true after the Four Beasts arc, when he becomes one of the Top 100 chefs in the world.]] During the [[spoiler:Cooking Festival]] he spends quite a bit of time trying to get autographs from other competing chefs.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: Komatsu and Toriko, though this dynamic also extends to ''anyone'' on Toriko's party, since Komatsu is a pretty tiny guy in general.
* ButtMonkey: Early on, he was often at the receiving end of many darkly humorous punishments, including [[spoiler: dying from a heart attack thanks to Toriko Crackers]].
* TheChick: Easily the most emotional and TheHeart of the group, despite being a male example of this trope.
* CowardlyLion: He is a very meek man, but he begins to overcome his fear through his adventures with Toriko.
* {{Gonk}}: Initially had an exaggerated flat nose but [[ProgressivelyPrettier he has gotten cuter]] [[spoiler: Particularly since the Meteor Spice incident and the timeskip of years in the Gourmet World; he now has more defined boyish features and looks ''EXTREMELY'' handsome.]]
* GameFace: Komatsu himself doesn't have one [[spoiler: until the Gourmet World arc]], but [[spoiler: ''his Derous Knife does''. When he draws the knife to defend himself, the beast attacking him perceives the Derous Dragon's presence and ''flees''.]]
** [[spoiler: Said "real" game face is a near exact replica of how Froese looks when invoking ''God Cooking''.]]
* HealingShiv: [[spoiler:His Derous knife turns out to have the properties of a Revival Knife, due to Derous' having extraordinary regenerative powers. This basically makes him TheMedic.]]
* ImageSong: "Let's Cooking!", also used as a leitmotif for the "Gourmet Fortune" segment.
* KnifeNut: Well, he ''is'' a chef.
* MoralityPet[=/=][[MoralityChain Chain]]: To Zebra.
* NiceGuy: He bares no ill will to anyone without reason and his kind heart is what attracts food to him.
* TheNotLoveInterest: He's effectively Toriko's most important person and support throughout the whole series, and his Chef-Hunter partnership with him is framed similarly to a marriage, especially with how Toriko [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything prepares to ask him]]. But their relationship is nothing more than a pair of incredibly close and devoted friends.
* OhCrap: Has often this reaction to many scary/powerful beasts or fighters. One of the best examples could be chapter 217, [[spoiler: after realizing that he's alone in a very dark tent with ''Starjun'']].
* OddFriendship: With both Zebra [[spoiler: and Brunch]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: The guy is 25. Really. Lampshaded in the chapter where he and Toriko go to Drunken Frenzy Island where Toriko asks him whether he was old enough to drink alcohol much to Komatsu's chagrin.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: He has noticeably become less {{Gonk}}y as of recent chapters. In fact, the last time his face reverts back to its old state, he's [[InelegantBlubbering crying]] over all of the memories that he's made while adventuring with Toriko.
** After eating the Billion Bird's egg, he takes this to the extreme, as he looks like pre-timeskip Rin.
* ShipTease: With [[spoiler: Melk II]].
* SupremeChef: He's able to cook extravagant foods, than he [[TookALevelInBadass learns Food Honor]] and becomes able to cook difficult foods more easily, enough to compete with top ranking chefs.
* TookALevelInBadass: He's gone from being scared out of his mind by Level 5 to 9 creatures, to confronting [[TheDreaded ZEBRA]] on his actions. [[spoiler: And ''gains his respect''.]]
** Not only that, but his cooking's leveled up immensely. In order to make enough antidote cooking to save everyone, he asked for ten minutes to come up with a way to allow regular chefs to make a high-level special preparation dish. With just a few seconds remaining, he succeeds, only for it to be revealed that he found the method in FIVE minutes. The rest of the time he devoted to making it taste even better.
** Most recently, he [[spoiler: cooked a meal that was so good, Midora said he could leave Bishokukai after promising that for any chef who could make him say their food was delicious. And he did it with the left behind ingredients that weren't stolen by NEO, some of which were probably Gourmet World ingredients he'd never seen before.]]
** [[spoiler: Survives 1.5 ''years'' in the Gourmet World and thrives in it!]]
** [[spoiler: He not only manages to prepare AIR, but manages to make it tastier than using the normal preparation method would have!]]
* WoundThatWillNotHeal: Receives one [[spoiler:after Teppei rips out and crushes his heart]]. Somehow [[spoiler:Teppei]] also rendered the wound impossible to heal even with "Dark" techniques. Dark techniques can ''revive the dead'' -- that's how bad the wound is. Since the "wound" is [[spoiler:a gaping hole in his chest and a missing heart]], this is a very bad thing. "PAIR" is the only thing that may be able to heal him.

[[folder:Four Heavenly Kings]]
!!Tropes Associated With the Four Heavenly Kings
* BadassCrew: Ooooh yeah...
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: They all learn Food Honor, except Zebra.

* HappilyAdopted: They're all orphans from poor countries adopted by Ichiryuu, who they see as a father figure.
* ISeeDeadPeople: [[spoiler:They gain the ability to see Food Spirits after eating "PAIR".]]
* OutOfFocus: The other three, aside from Toriko, had it far worse than the 8 kings during the final ark. [[spoiler:Even their adventures of obtaining NEWS, ATOM and Earth were skipped]]
* OverlyLongTongue: [[spoiler:They get these after eating "ANOTHER". Except Sunny, who gets a mouth full of hair.]]
* PowerFist: [[spoiler:After eating "AIR", they become able to turn their left arms into the arms of their Appetite Demons. PAIR does the same for their right arm.]]
* SuperSpeed: [[spoiler:The Enbu dance requires them to do 10 individual positions per 0.1 second. Which means they have to do a total of 1000 moves in 10 seconds.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: They all take several levels in order to enter the [[DeathWorld Gourmet World]].
* UpbringingMakesTheHero[=/=]TykeBomb: They were all raised by Ichiryuu to be not only the Human World's best Gourmet Hunters, but also its defenders.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakahiroSakurai (Japanese), Jarrod Greene (English), Eduardo Ramírez (Latin American Spanish)
* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: To the point where he can make new antidotes and poisons in only a few minutes.
* AuraVision: Due to his eyes being able to see light spectrums that normal people cannot, he can see the electromagnetic field around living beings, allowing him to predict their future going off the field's size, color an movements.
* BadPowersGoodPeople: Coco is kind, soft-spoken, and polite. He can also generate and release deadly toxins at will.
* BigDamnHeroes: During the Regal Mammoth arc.
%%* {{Bishonen}}
* TheChessmaster: Coco is a ''brilliant'' strategist, as shown in the Regal Mammoth Arc and [[UpToEleven even more so]] in the Livebearer Arc. Hell, his actions against Livebearer put him very near MagnificentBastard territory.
* FantasticDrug: [[spoiler:His Devil Poison is essentially this. It's a highly addictive narcotic that causes those infected to become dependant on it to the point of him being able to [[MoreThanMindControl command them into doing his bidding]] and will have withdrawal symptoms like an addict if they don't get any. Even Grinpatch essentially joined his side momentarily just because he wanted to drink the poison.]]
* FortuneTeller: His "day job".
* GameFace: Coco's "intimidation" resembles a Japanese-style ghost (long black hair and a [[TheScream Scream]]-like expression.
* ImageSong: "Poison Teller".
* LockedIntoStrangeness: [[spoiler:The results of the fight with Grinpatch show it ended in a complete draw - Coco's Devil Poison (comparable to, say, Sunny's Satan Hair) damn near killed him to use, Grinpatch went a bit crazy after it got in him, and Coco's hair turned white from poison overuse.]]
* MasterPoisoner: Coco is not only able to [[PoisonousPerson create and secrete various poisons in his own body]] - he also expert in all kinds of poisons, which suitable, since his enemies often has immunity, and he has to get crafty to kill them. Not only can he create poisons with various effects, from ones that paralyse targets to ones that make their flesh melt away, he also developed adaptive poison, which can adapt to wictims' immune systems and strike down foes, who normally would be immune to it. He's so skilled, that he can poison even robots - by using gases, which turns into highly-corrosive acid on certain metals. Surprisingly, he [[BadPowersGoodPeople is the most nice person out of the Four Kings]].
* NiceGuy: He's called the "Gentleman of the Four Kings". Though, compared to [[BigEater Toriko]], [[TheFightingNarcissist Sunny,]] and [[TokenEvilTeammate Zebra]], ''anyone'' would seem like a gentleman.
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to just how quirky or downright crazy his fellow Kings can be, he is the most normal in the group.
* PoisonousPerson: He's afraid that he can hurt people with his great amount of poisons, so he shuts himself in, only interacting to tell people their fortunes...that is, until the Puffer Whale arc. After mastering Honoring the Food, he can produce more poisons at once and newer types of poisons.
** PoisonIsCorrosive: Can create acidic poison as well.
* ProphecyTwist: The two times he saw a Death Omen on somebody, they took fatal wounds, but they recovered from them.
** More specifically, they were ''physically'' dead, as in their hearts stopped. It's just that they were revived moments later.
* TheSmartGuy: While all the Four Kings are smart, Coco is easily the one with the most use of it. The [[AllThereInTheManual databook]] notably gives him a 10/10 in intelligence.
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: He can create weapons out of poison by combining it with the clotting agents from his blood. To date he has made [[KatanasAreJustBetter a katana]], [[ArcherArchetype a bow and arrow]], [[BladeOnAStick a spear]], and even a suit of armor.
** MesACrowd: He can make clones of himself out of poison. [[spoiler:After the time-skip he can bring them ''to life''.]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* TechnicolorToxin: In the manga, his skin turns red and supposedly his poison is also red. In the anime, it's [[PurplePoison purple]]. It seems that the stronger his poison gets, the darker its color.
* TonightSomeoneDies: He gets "Death Omens" when somebody is close to getting killed. However, see ProphecyTwist.
* UniversalPoison: [[spoiler:The only way to describe his Poison Virus, a virus that that adapts into a poison to counteract the target's immune system.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MitsuoIwata (Japanese), Aaron Roberts (English), Creator/JoseGilbertoVilchis (Latin American Spanish)
* AgentPeacock: Flamboyant and powerful.
* AmbiguouslyGay: He's flamboyant, but nothing has suggested that he likes other men.
* AnimeHair
* AttackReflector: His Spatula technique in which his hairs take force and reflect it back.
** His Super Spatula uses multiple hairs for a single force and ''multiply it'' by varying degrees (depending on how many hairs he uses).
%%* {{Bishonen}}
* BishieSparkle: Particularly in the anime.
* DontThinkFeel: This is what Yosaku tells him to do to increase his power, and it works.
* TheFightingNarcissist: A rare non-evil version.
* HammerspaceHair: ''Weaponized''. To the extent that he can absorb energy attacks and spit them right back at his attacker with his Satan Vomit.
* ImageSong: "Arienhodo Beauty".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's vain, superficial and narcissistic, but he cares for his friends and brothers and always does what's right.
* '''LongHairedPrettyBoy''': OH YEAH.
* MegatonPunch: [[spoiler: By gathering a lot of hair together, he can create what looks like a devilish ghost to deliver great punches. He doesn't like to use it, though, because it's "not beautiful".]]
* MulticoloredHair: Justified in that his hairs are a touch sensory organ and each color detects a different stimuli.
* NotQuiteFlight: Because of how thin his hairs are, when he uses them to stand on it looks like he's floating in the air.
* PeoplePuppets: [[spoiler:He can use his hairs to tie up enemies and control them like a puppeteer.]]
** [[spoiler:It's not just 'tying them up'--that would be his "Hair Lock". Hair Marionette inserts his micron-width hairs into the opponent's body and controls their [[BodyHorror NERVES]].]]
* PowerDyesYourHair: [[spoiler:His [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Satan Hair]], which is his hair imbued with "Appetite Energy", making it an extremely shiny [[GoldenSuperMode gold color]] and ''eat anything it touches''.]]
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: After mastering Honoring the Food, his hair count went from 300,000 to 1,000,000 and his range increased from 50 meters to 300 meters.
* PrehensileHair: UpToEleven.
** To drive the point home, he can even control his hairs ''after they've been cut off''.
* RazorFloss: He can use his extremely thin hairs to cut through or impale things.
* RunningGag: He always ends up having to fight the ugliest, most disgusting opponents around. Considering that he's a LongHairedPrettyBoy obsessed with "beauty", this does not make him happy.
* TranquilFury: Seeing the rotting corpses left behind by the Gourmet Corp. during the Regal Mammoth arc sends him into a stone-faced rage.
* WalkOnWater: Only using his hair like the legs of a water spider.

->'''Voiced by:''' Kenji Matsuda (Japanese)
* AntiHero: For one thing, he doesn't "give humble thanks" before eating something.
* AxCrazy: Holy shit.
* BarrierWarrior: Yes, really. He can use his voice to create armor made of sound that can protect other people. He uses it to protect Komatsu from afar during the Gourmet Pyramid arc. Much later he uses it to protect civilians during the battle with the Four Beasts.
* BerserkButton: "Cocky" people. Also, creatures that annoy him.
** He particularly hates liars, as he feels that lying to someone's face is the most "cocky" thing a person can do. One of the main reasons he likes Komatsu (outside of his cooking) is because he's particularly honest.
* BigEater: To the point where he ate 26 species ''into extinction''.
* BloodKnight: Toriko himself says that Zebra loves fighting more than anyone else he's ever known.
* BrokenAce: Technically a Type 1, he's the strongest of the four, but lacks the moral restraints of the other three.
* BrownNote: He can mlate the frequency of his voice to instantly kill anyone.
* CatchPhrase: "Don't get cocky!"
* CantHoldHisLiquor: He's insanely badass, but staying sober is one of the few things he can't do.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler: Komatsu has to offer his services to Zebra to encourage him to take part in the Gourmet Pyramid.]]
* DeathFromAbove: His Thunder Noise and Meteor Noise, the former looking like lightning bolts.
* TheDreaded: The very ''news'' of him getting release is enough to cause a global, social, and economic crisis. Entire developing countries disappear because of it.
* ElementalPunch: [[spoiler:His Sound Knuckle, which puts a bubble of sound around his fist to make his punches more powerful.]]
* FlashStep: [[spoiler:His Onsoku Idou, allowing him to move at the speed of sound.]]
* GameFace: Zebra's "Intimidation" resembles a massive, scarred, bat-like creature.
* IGaveMyWord: He might be an AxCrazy SociopathicHero with [[TokenEvilTeammate highly questionable ethics]], but [[EvenEvilHasStandards he considers lying beneath him]]. If he says he'll do something, he'll do it.
* ImageSong: "Zebra!!"
* InformedAttribute: According to his "Capture Ability Data" Zebra's intelligence is 3/10. While Zebra is obviously the Heavenly King that does the least thinking, he rarely comes off particularly stupid.
* {{Jerkass}}[=/=]JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He tends to swerve in between.
* LargeAndInCharge: Bigger than Toriko as well as the strongest of the Four Heavenly Kings.
* LivingLieDetector: Courtesy of his "Hell Ears" and the reason he hates liars so much.
* MakeMeWannaShout: ''[[UpToEleven To the extreme]]''.
** The frequency of the sound vibrations does more damage than the sound itself.
* MegatonPunch: [[spoiler:His Beat Punch, where he channels sound vibrations through his punch to do even more damage.]]
* NightmareFace: The left side of his cheek has been torn off, showing all of his jagged teeth
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Warden Love's pheromones have absolutely no effect on him.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Which is why IGO put him in jail in the first place.
* RatedMForManly: Even more so than Toriko.
* ShapingYourAttacks: Zebra can use his [[MakeMeWannaShout destructive voice]] in ways you never thought were possible. This includes cutting, electrocution, making explosions or barriers, and even laser beams.
* SociopathicHero: Emphasis on "sociopath".
* SmugSuper: His overall attitude, he's confident because frankly he has a lot of badassery to back it up.
* TokenEvilTeammate: He shows absolutely no remorse for his actions. None.
* TookALevelInKindness: At the beginning of the series, he was a bloodthirsty sociopath who just ate whatever he wanted; as of recent arcs, he's actively saving people from beasts and villains of his own volition.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KenyuHoriuchi (Japanese), Creator/RBruceElliott (English), Andrés García (Latin American Spanish)

* AmbiguouslyBrown
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: To [=IGO=].
* BadassGrandpa: Ichiryuu is, hands down, one of the three strongest men alive. The entirety of the Gourmet Corps' elites, save for Midora, would have no chance against him. The only people who stand on his tier are Midora and their brother disciple Jiro. [[spoiler: And very possibly Joie.]]
* BigGood: Shares this role with Jiro. [[spoiler: Jiro might well have to shoulder this burden alone now...]]
** [[spoiler: Good news, Midora spares him!...but then a Blue Nitro finishes him off.]]
* CainAndAbel: Zigzagged a bit. He and Midora aren't blood brothers, but they're still bitter enemies and refer to one another as brothers, though Ichiryu wishes peaceful reconciliation was possible. [[spoiler: Even at the end, Ichiryu seems oddly proud of his brother's power and deeply wishes they could have shared a last meal together.]]
* CantHoldHisLiquor: When he was younger, he'd pass out after drinking a single drop of booze. He's grown out of it with age, drinking wines with alcohol contents as high as ''85%'' (though he still complains about its strength)!
* CoolOldGuy: To Toriko, and is actually much more humble than his initial presentation presents.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He acts very goofy and senile to Toriko when we first see him. And then the sparring match starts...
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Which is odd, considering he used to have dark, brownish hair.
* GravityMaster: He can create a gravitational pull to draw in creatures much larger than himself, reverse the gravitational polarity to push them away and fly through the air.
** [[spoiler: In truth, due to his WindsOfDestinyChange ability, he is able to find the minority atoms that keep living things on the group and then alter the probability of him staying on the ground.]]
* HisNameIs: [[spoiler:After being defeated by Midora, he is struck down by a [[KingMook Blue Nitro]] before he can speak the name of the true enemy that must be vanquished.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler:After basically showing he could kick anyone except the leader's ass easily in the Gourmet Corp., it is revealed that a lot of his Gourmet Cells were ''sleeping''. No telling how strong he will be once he is back to peak condition.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:By a Blue Nitro right after Midora defeated and spared him.]] [[spoiler: Even so, he appears later on in series in the spirit world.]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: This guy will kick your ass with giant ''chopsticks!''
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Implied to have been his failure to kill Midora long ago after besting him.]]
* NotWorthKilling: [[spoiler:Midora claims this is why he spared him.]]
* PeacefulInDeath: [[spoiler:After his death, he is shown smiling.]]
* PromotionToParent: For all of the Four Heavenly Kings. He loves them like his own sons.
* OldMaster: To Toriko, Coco, Sunny and Zebra
* RealityWarper: [[spoiler:Essentially his ability to alter quantum physics through minority atoms in order to change the laws and nature of an object, making him able to alter the world's laws as he sees fit.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Was the first student of Acacia, a Gourmet Hunter now worshiped as a god.]]
* ShapingYourAttacks: [[spoiler:He can use Appetite Energy to create a pair of giant chopsticks to pick things up or use as melee weapons or projectiles.]]
* StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler:Ichiryuu's "Minority World" where the minority atoms, which disobey the normal laws of nature and physics, of an object take over effectively making him a RealityWarper.]]
** Its revealed later on that [[spoiler: Not only was his gourmet Demon one of the strongest in the Red Universe, Don Slime, but He himself defeated Don Slime single handed.]]
* WalkOnWater: More like he hops across it like a stone skipping on water.
* WindsOfDestinyChange: [[spoiler:His signature ability seems to manipulate quantum mechanics. He can switch the probability of events, making miracles happen on a whim (like standing in midair and turning solid ground into quagmire) and reversing the functions of his opponent's own organ systems. ]]

* AxCrazy: When he '''[[PowerLimiter releases his Knocking]]''', he fights like a berserker.
* TheAlcoholic: All his dishes in his Full Course Menu are to do with alcohol, for one!
* BaldOfAwesome: [[spoiler: He did have some awesome hair back when he was a bandit before meeting Ichiryu.]]
** [[spoiler: Loses it post-Timeskip when he becomes President.]]
* BloodKnight: When he releases his Knocking, he doesn't know who he's going to attack.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Did you just call me HANDSOME?!"
--> Everyone present: "No."
* CoolOldGuy: Although not old as Ichiryu [[spoiler: especially considering that Ichiryu is over [[Really700YearsOld 400 years old]]]], he's pretty much the closest thing to a TeamDad that the main group has.
* DeathGlare: To the Gerold, followed by a "[[PreAsskickingOneLiner Would you mind getting back inside?]]" and a CurbStompBattle.
* TheJuggernaut: [[spoiler: When he goes all out, as some unfortunate mooks found out.]]

* ReformedCriminal: Was a bandit in this youth, until he was [[DefeatEqualsFriendship defeated/recruited by]] [[BigGood Ichiryu]].
** [[spoiler: He's now the president of IGO!]]
* RunningGag: People call him by name, only for him to mishear "Handsome". To the point that he mishears a panicking baby Regal Mammoth's shouts for "Handsome", at which point everyone and everything--including the panicking baby Regal Mammoth--stops to correct him.
* SuperMode: He also can use Knocking, this time to boost his stats up as well as his size. Or so we thought; the Knocking '''LIMITS''' his power, and he releases it to fight at full power.
* ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler: His immediate concern for the wellbeing of the devastated Human World, despite being heavily injured himself, causes Defense Director Rei to humor Mansam's RunningGag and falsely admit to calling him "Handsome".]]

* ImageSong: "Ring Ring"
** StealthPun: The kanji that make up her name mean "little bell".

** [[spoiler: Becomes a DualWielding [[SaiGuy Sai Girl]] as seen in chapter 221.]]
* OfficialCouple: Rin eventually marries [[spoiler:Toriko]] towards the end of the series.
* RunningGag: Early on, she has a tendency to mix up Battle Fragrance and Relax Perfume.
* ScarsAreForever: Her scar is a bit unique in that she took a razor '''to her own face''' solely so she could have scars like Toriko. It hurt too much after the first one for her to keep going, though.
* ShesGotLegs: Her outfits often show off her long and slender legs.
* SiblingYinYang: She's quite a tomboy, as opposed to her '''incredibly''' campy brother Sunny.

* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: The next time we see her in action against the Gourmet Corp. army, she's putting tons of beasts to sleep at once and takes on Bei, Doshan, and Zaiper with her [[LaserBlade Fragrance Swords]] And she ''wins''.]]
** [[spoiler: She's now a Research Chief at IGO.]]

* HumanoidAbomination: Most of the Gourmet Corp have mutated to animalistic, sometimes outright demonic beings.

* BerserkerTears: [[spoiler: After nearly killing Ichiryu.]]
* BlowYouAway[=/=]PowerOfTheVoid: [[spoiler: The power of "Hunger Space, it consumes not only simple matter such as objects, but every atoms that revolves around the "space" that it touches, consuming even air itself, rendering any ability to manipulate atoms around it useless. And since it's invisible and its effects can only be seen by the tracks of its aftereffects...]]
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: He produces several tongues out of his mouth to attack and defend himself.]]
* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Ichiryu's Abel, albeit by adoption rather than blood.
* CombatTentacles: [[spoiler:Can do this with his tongue, by multiplying it into several thorny tendrils.]]
* CursedWithAwesome: Undying hunger sucks, but Midora has managed to put it to good use in battle. His entire battle strategy is to basically ''eat everything around him''.
* [[SevenDeadlySins Gluttony]]: The embodiment of this, eating several mountains of food at a time, and [[spoiler: he even weaponizes it with his tongue]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Midora may be a VillainousGlutton with an unceasing appetite who wants to deprive other humans of food, but even he thinks the Blue Nitro are crude gluttonous beasts that embody the worst parts of the Gourmet Age.
* EvilCounterpart[=/=]ShadowArchetype: To Toriko. Further details on his past show that he's what Toriko would be, had the latter not learned kindness and restraint.
** He's also this to Zebra, as the latter was very close to being like Midora had Komatsu not influenced him for the better.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Quite possibly the single biggest example of this in Toriko. Hell his entire fighting style essentially involves eating everything around him. How does he attack? Eat his opponents. How does he defend himself? Eat his opponent's attacks. [[spoiler: Hungry Space takes this up to eleven allowing him to devour the very atoms around him]].
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler: Born to a village that would attempt to feed their infants to wild pigs, he had no one and stole food till he met Froese.]]
** [[spoiler: Her death in trying to save his life. The kicker, he risked his life in order to find the Cure Water needed to make her feel better.]] From that point on, he became a VillainousGlutton incarnate.
* GenerationXerox: Is very similar to Toriko in his youth, in not only BigEater tendencies [[spoiler: but had an uncanny resemblance to the latter, especially as a young man]].
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has scars running over his eyes.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[spoiler: Uses the OverlyLongTongue to digest high level beasts in seconds and produce a myriad of thorny tongues as well.]]
** [[spoiler: Not to mention how he can tear the landscape in half with just a tongue.]]
* InstantDeathRadius: [[spoiler:His "Hungry Space" in which an invisible "Dinner of Kings" (yes, like the one the Four Heavenly Kings used) fills the vacuums created by his tongue and thus consumes ''everything within its radius''.]]
* MisanthropeSupreme: Despises humanity in general, believing that they do not deserve the bounty of the Gourmet Age. [[spoiler:So he single-handedly ended it, bring about a worldwide famine.]]
* MoralityChain: [[spoiler: Froese's kindness]] turned him from a feral predator to a human being, and after [[spoiler: inadvertently becoming the final factor that caused her death]] he not only plunges right back into total selfishness, but also blames the rest of humanity for what happened, shirking his own guilt.
* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: [[spoiler: Despite him defeating and declaring that his brother was NotWorthKilling, when a Blue Nitro slays Ichiryu and tries to eat him, Midora claims that his brother is far too high a quality meal for scum like it, and he vows to [[DueToTheDead bring Ichiryu's body to a place he cherished in life.]]]]
* NotSoDifferent: His backstory [[spoiler:of being a poor starving child]] is rather similar to Toriko's.
* NotSoStoic: Nothing rattles him in the present, but [[spoiler: he actually ''cries'' when killing Ichiryuu.]]
* OffScreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: Subverted, as chapter 246 is about to get into the details of how Midora beat Ichiryu.]]
* OverlyLongTongue: [[spoiler: Weaponized.]]
* PickyEater: Not even [[spoiler: Century Soup can satisfy him, claiming only GOD can truly be a dish to be savored]].
* PostStressOvereating: [[spoiler: The reason for Midora for being a massive VillainousGlutton is because he's actually binge eating in order to cope with the loss of Froese.]]
* PureIsNotGood: [[spoiler: Froese notes that he truly respects food, especially since he shed TenderTears at someone who wasn't grateful for food.]] [[SlowlySlippingIntoEvil Zoom to the present, and his pure obsession for food has turned him into something else.]]
* RapunzelHair: Black one, seems to resemble Sunny's and Starjun's hairstyle.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler: Was apparently a student of Acacia.]]
* RuleOfThree: Has three scars under each eye and his beard is tri-pointed.
* SealedEvilInACan: [[spoiler: a more literal version of this trope, as he is sealed inside an actual golden can by Joie at the end of Chapter 368.]]
* TheStoic: Even Century Soup, which can make anyone smile goofily [[spoiler: did absolutely nothing for him]].
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler: Reunited with his mother and the rest of his family in the afterlife. Turning back into a young man and going to eat with them at the same table once again.]]
* StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler: Midora's "Hungry Space" which is essentially an invisible "Dinner of Kings" that fills the vacuums created after his tongue eats the air giving him an InstantDeathRadius.]]
** [[spoiler: This also includes Midora's "Chameleon Cells" which lets him copy ANY AND ALL signature moves used against him. He's completely copied Ichiryuu's Minority World power, thus making him a RealityWarper; he used this power to revive completely dead soil in an instant for his eldest brother's grave. He later copies Joie's [[BornLucky Gourmet Luck]].]]
* TheUnseen: [[spoiler:Until chapter 171.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:He was ''Acacia's''. Acacia manipulated him into gathering Cure Water for some reason.]] Midora was also unaware that [[spoiler:several of his higher ranked subordinates, including his tech expert and his head chef, were actually members of NEO.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid: [[spoiler: Played with. While he started off as being extremely hostile, having to fend for himself in order to get food, he becomes a very lively child with Froese and Acacia's influence.]]
** [[spoiler: But then Froese dies trying to save him, the kicker being that Midora only got that way in order to cure her.]] From then on, he was evil.
* TigerVersusDragon: With Ichiryu.
* VillainousGlutton: Like most of the Gourmet Corp, but UpToEleven as he leaves a large pile of bones after each meal.
** [[spoiler: He weaponizes it by making his tongue into an instant digestive, landscape-cutting, tendril-mass-attacking and blocking weapon.]]
** [[spoiler: It's also PlayedForDrama, as he literally can never fully satisfy himself.]]
* VillainTeleportation: He seems to be able to do this. [[spoiler:It's actually a form of ChameleonCamouflage.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler: Very much so, the one person that showed him kindness died protecting him, right after he risked his life to save hers.]] This pushed him into the final step towards evil.
* WorldsStrongestMan: When Toriko met him face to face, he was convinced that Midora is the strongest being on the planet and could easily destroy it. Even Jirou [[spoiler:a fellow disciple of Acacia]] believes that he is now no match for Midora.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler: Even if he was a student of Acacia 400 years ago]], he looks far younger than he should be (40s at least) when his fellow disciples [[spoiler: Ichiryu and especially Jirou]] are much older-looking in appearance.

* BattleButler: As Midora's waiter and personal aide, this trope seems to apply to him.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler: To Midora.]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He uses plates to [[spoiler: cut down the Hellboros and the Parasite Emperor, beasts that are '''ranked in the 80s level in power''' and didn't seem like a big deal to him]].
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Even though he's completed his goal of getting the Century Soup, he had planned to go after Toriko in his weaken state to eliminate a threat. Only to be confronted by Setsuno who broke all of his plates by ''pressure alone'' as a warning if he attempted it. Realizing the task would be more trouble then it worth, he wisely withdrew from Ice Hell.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Eight arms to use his weapons.
* NobleDemon: With Starjun, the least psychotic and vicious of his organization and more than intelligent to know when he's outmatched.
* TheStoic

* AlmightyJanitor: [[spoiler: Despite being the second-strongest Gourmet Corp member, there are more than just a few people who rank above him. But, thanks to him still being a high-ranking member, the below also applies.]]
* ArchEnemy: Is this to Toriko [[spoiler:especially after making great impacts on each, Starjun finally finding a possible WorthyOpponent and Toriko suffering his second loss to a Sous Chef and Komatsu being taken away as a result]].
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He's implied to be the strongest of the Sous Chefs, thus earning [[TheDreaded justified fear from the lower ranks]].
** [[spoiler: Turns out to even more of one with the recent reveal of his true position as the second strongest of the group.]]
* BadassCape: Worn over a BadassLongcoat [[spoiler: that Toriko proceeds to destroy in a barrage of 50 Nail Punches]].
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: Following Tommyrod's example, he manages to defeat Toriko albeit being beaten badly.]]
* {{Bishonen}}: [[spoiler: Cue fangirl {{Squee}}. He does have apparent burn scarring on the side of his face and neck (although, seeing as Chapter 361 reveals he's had the "scars" since birth, it's hard to tell if they're actually burns), but it doesn't detract much from his bishie splendor]].
* BlackKnight: His appearance with his helmet and medieval style clothing invokes this.
* BloodKnight: [[spoiler: Is elated when Toriko literally "beats" the clothes off of him]].
* CoolMask: His Shiva Helmet.[[spoiler: Toriko manages to destroy it in Chapter 218, in his NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.]]
* CombatClairvoyance: [[spoiler: An ability he obtained after his Gourmet Cells awoke. Starjun even claims he can follow an ingredient if it goes all the way to space]]
* CoolSword: For a while it seemed like an OrnamentalWeapon, which is lampshaded by Toriko at one point; [[spoiler: then in Chapter 236, he uses it to NoSell Toriko's barrage of knives and forks by [[FlamingSword melting them with fire.]]]]
** [[spoiler: According to him, it's a special preparation knife.]]
* {{Cyclops}}: His Intimidation.
* TheDragon: First appears on a flying dragon? Check. [[spoiler: Snags a KnightOfCerebus moment when his power isn't even fully transmitted by a remote control robot? Check. It takes everything TheHero has to beat him in that weakened state? Check. Able to NoSell an attack from every single Heavenly King in his first real fight? Check. Withstands a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from Toriko ''just to measure his growth''? Check. Shakes it off and defeats protagonist? Check. And for the kicker, [[TheDreaded Joie]] then confirms that Star is the second in strength among the Gourmet Corp., [[TookALevelInBadass as Starjun's Gourmet Cells awaken for the first time as a result of fighting with Toriko!]] ]]
** DragonWithAnAgenda: He seems to be looking for a mysterious ingredient, and has partnered with Ootake for his Food Luck.
* TheDreaded: Even his own comrades shit their pants just by being in his presence.
* EvilCounterpart: Interestingly, he seems to be this to Ichiryu [[spoiler: - absurdly strong, holding back in almost every appearance, and it was recently revealed that his Gourmet Cells were sleeping for much of the series. And since Ichiryu defeated Midora in their first match while Midora triumphed in the rematch, the next Starjun/Toriko fight should be ''very interesting.'']]
* FlamingSword: [[spoiler:His Burner Knife, which "cuts and grills" at the same time.]]
* GenerationXerox: In the current arc, he looks a lot like a younger version of Midora.
* GiantFlyer: The first time he appears he's standing on a colossal, serpent-like dragon. [[spoiler: During the assault on the Chowlin Temple he rides the even more colossal Big Bang Shark.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Just look at his helmet!
** But for real, he is the first major antagonist to make an appearance (by proxy) and marks the introduction of the Big Bad group in the series (by extension). Even though he's in a robo, he takes one look at Toriko and Coco and [[GameFace immediately puts them both on high alert]]. He then walks right past them. ''And slaughters everything in his path on his way out of the cave.''
* LightningBruiser: The new G.T. Robots can faithfully reproduce the user's movements with a measurement error of less than a millisecond. For Starjun, [[ArrogantKungFuGuy that's still too slow.]]
* LongLostRelative: [[spoiler: Chapter 361 reveals him to actually be Toriko's brother.]]
* ILetYouWin: His "fight" as a G.T Robot counts as this, since his full power wasn't displayed inside the machine
* NobleDemon: So far, he seems to be the least murderous of the Gourmet Corp, only killing when presented with an obstacle, compared to his colleagues who'd soon as kill anything that moves for no reason and then not even eat it.
* NoSell: [[spoiler:So far he's used his flames to negate Coco, Sunny and Zebra's attacks, and later do the same with his sword.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Seems to have some mastery over heat--the first time he appears, he roasts a Butt Bug alive by touching it, and later it makes a candle's fire grow just by moving his hand over it.
** [[spoiler: He later does to this to NoSell Coco, Zebra and Sunny's attempts to protect Komatsu]].
*** [[spoiler: His sword does this to NoSell Toriko's barrage of knifes and forks.]]
*** [[spoiler: He makes a flame tornado at one point.]]
* RapunzelHair: Has already long hair in his debut, but it's taken UpToEleven to the point he resembles a younger version of Midora without his outfit.
* TheRival: More and more of their interactions set up him being this to Toriko.
* SeparatedAtBirth: [[spoiler: Upon reviving his 'Food Memory' by eating Fish Dish Another, he remembers as far back as being in the womb... which he shared with his twin brother, '''TORIKO'''.]]
* StealthHiBye: [[spoiler: In chapter 217, he appears inside the completely enclosed tent where Komatsu and Zaus were supposed to cook. Komatsu notices him only after being grabbed by the arm.]]
* TheStoic: Starjun reacts to most things with abject boredom, [[spoiler: only getting excited when Toriko manages to hurt him]].
* TechnicolorFire: In the anime at least, his flames are blue.
* ThirdEye: [[spoiler:Grows one after his fight with Toriko awakens his hidden potential.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:If it were possible, after having his Gourmet Cells awoken in his fight with Toriko, he's become even stronger than he ''already was''.]]
* WreathedInFlames: [[spoiler:His Camp Fire technique.]]
* WorthyOpponent: He sees Toriko as this, [[spoiler: especially after becoming elated when his over 100 Nail Punches manage to strip him of his clothes and mask, and leave him very bruised]].

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkiraIshida (Japanese), Creator/GregAyres (English), Carlos Íñigo (Latin American Spanish)
* AnimalMotif: Parasitic insects in general, though his Intimidation is a weird octopus thing.
* AnimalisticAbomination: The only way to describe his Intimidation, really.
* AxCrazy: The most blatant one of the Vice Chefs.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:Takes down Toriko, though he loses an arm in doing so. He's then defeated by Teppei, while exhausted from his fight with Toriko.]]
* BloodKnight: Seeks battles in order to compete over food.
* BodyHorror: He contains the insect eggs in his stomach and they hatch when he spits them up. Urrrgh...
* TheBeastmaster: Of the parasitic variety, and ''God'' is it scary.
* BeeAfraid: Not just bees, though. ALL KINDS OF INSECTS.
* BeeBeeGun: One of his techniques allows him to do things similar to this. ''With his mouth''.
* BigCreepyCrawlies: He can spit these out. [[spoiler: The manga implies that after being beaten by Toriko, Tommyrod's Gourmet Cells have evolved to let him keep even ''worse'' bugs in his arsenal.]]
* CombatTentacles: [[spoiler: Cuts Sunny's hair with a huge, pincer-tipped tentacle seemingly composed of [[BodyOfBodies different insectile parts merged together]], and worse, it comes out of his mouth, complete with NightmareFace.]]
* EatenAlive: [[spoiler:He's finally put down by Sunny's Satan Hair's Appetite Energy, which devours him completely.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Kills a Wall Penguin's parents and calls them trash, and does so for no reason other than they annoyed him by being "noisy".
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: He doesn't seem to understand why people why people would be angry at his actions, often responding to their outrage with a blank stare.
* EvilCounterpart: Once he fights Sunny it's obvious that they're the most emotional of the main trio of fighters in their groups, [[TheChick Sunny being extremely empathetic and passionate]] while Tommyrod is [[AxCrazy extremely unstable, though he hides it with a facade of calmness]]. Both focus on long range moves, which Sunny prefers to be elegant while Tommyrod doesn't mind being hideous.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Unlike Starjun and Grinpatch, his politeness (barely) covers up the fact that he is a disgusting sadist who would soon kill his own allies and intimidate them with death rather than care for them.
* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler:His last thoughts before being eaten alive by Sunny's hair are that he had fun fighting Sunny.]]
* HumanoidAbomination: The most obvious of the whole Gourmet Corp so far, as he is a multi-fanged humanoid with functional wings, containing thousands of insects within his body, as well as being the largest of the three main attackers of the Corp.
* {{Jerkass}}: Unlike [[AffablyEvil Grinpatch]] and [[TheStoic Starjun]], he is unpleasant and uncaring, spending an entire arc showing how much of a jerk he is to everyone he knows.
* KickTheDog: His role in the Century Soup arc is this, killing a penguin's parents and not eating them while calling them trash (he did it because he thought they were annoying), tries to kill his own allies once they lose, kicks his own bugs because he considers the failures to be trash...
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: By Sunny.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: While Starjun was the first serious threat, the DarkerAndEdgier as well as BloodierAndGorier elements truly appeared once Tommyrod unleashed his monstrous nature into what was a tame series for the most part. As well as the fact that [[spoiler: he brings Toriko to the brink of death for the first time.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: He doesn't even seem to care about his subordinates, and Toriko notes this about his personality in their battle, comparing him to a bug.
* LargeAndInCharge: While not obvious at first, one can even say he's normal-sized compared to his imposing fellow chefs. That's until he removes the [[PowerLimiter bands]] that restrain his full power, and he bulks up--and by bulking up, we mean being '''twice the size of Toriko, who had dwarfed him before this'''.
* LightningBruiser: Especially after taking off his limiter bands.
* NestedMouths: He has bugs that burst out of his mouth, but [[spoiler: but until he released the Parasite Emperor]], a ghoulish face would show up frequently.
* NightmareFace: When he's ready to kill, though his "standard" look isn't exactly normal or comforting, either.
** [[spoiler: Made his ultimate one, complete with extremely wide, [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]] eyes, as he prepared to kill Sunny.]]
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: From keeping hideous bugs within him to having razor-sharp fangs, he can even become bigger and more disgusting.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler: Twice. The beatdown he gives to Toriko is the first time Toriko has felt so close to death. Then he beats Sunny to a pulp.]]
* TheNoseless: Lacks a visible nose.
* MonsterClown: Looks like one, and is definitely a monster compared to Starjun and Grinpatch.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: And actually uses them to bite chunks out of Toriko.
* MyDeathIsOnlyTheBeginning: [[spoiler: Well, he didn't ''die'', but his release of the Parasite Emperor, when he knew he would be drained by it, counts.]]
* PowerLimiter: The bands around his arms, legs, and abdomen. When he takes them off, he bulks up to ridiculous proportions.
** Doubles as both a OneWingedAngel as well as a [[spoiler: [[ClippedWingAngel crippling weakness, as he is now much easier to strike]].]]
* SealedEvilInACan: Not him, the sad bug in his mouth--[[spoiler: the Parasite Emperor, a Level 81 Mutant Hybrid Insect]].
* WingedHumanoid: He has cockroach wings, probably surgically attached.
* VillainousBreakdown: In his fight with Toriko, he went from smug to a snarling monstrosity full of rage.
* WorthyOpponent: Considers Toriko one after fighting him, [[spoiler: and Sunny as the latter is killing him]].
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Pink Hair]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: He immediately tries to have Bogey and Barrygamon be eaten by bugs in a fit of rage for losing to their enemies. Fortunately, Toriko saves them, [[UngratefulBastard even if the gesture is not returned]].

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YujiMitsuya (Japanese), Chris Rager (English), Julio Bernal (Latin American Spanish)
* AffablyEvil: Laid-back and playful. The evil part comes from him literally wanting to eat Toriko.
* AmbiguouslyGay: A lot of his interaction with Toriko show that Grinpatch might be have more in mind than just eating him.
** The ImAHumanitarian angle is the only thing keeping it from being completely overt.
* AnimalMotifs: The mosquito.
* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: See ExtremeOmnivore. [[spoiler:His body acts as a filtration system for any and all toxic agents, even Coco's Poison Virus (which adapts to get around the victims' immune system) was useless.]]
* AxCrazy: Like Tommyrod, but has DissonantSerenity to back it up.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: Implied with Coco's fight, since he emerged from the hole that the latter drove him into, though Coco is later revealed to have survived the conflict.]]
* BlackEyesOfCrazy[=/=]BlackEyesOfEvil: Black eyes with three white pupils.
* BlowYouAway[=/=]SuperBreath: With a straw.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Chapter 262 reveals that [[spoiler:Joie "cooked" him at some point, leaving Grinpatch listless and unresponsive.]]
* BreathWeapon: What he can do with those straws.
* BrilliantButLazy: Was able to fight on par with Toriko, but [[ILetYouWin threw it because he was being lazy]] and thus there is no gauge of his full power as of yet.
** [[spoiler: Especially since he got out of his fight with Coco unscathed compared to his colleagues.]]
* [[SevenDeadlySins Gluttony]]: Aside from Midora embodies this the most out of the Gourmet Corp.
* ExtremeOmnivore: [[spoiler: Swallows tons of blobs of Coco's extremely corrosive poison and claims it's tasty.]]
** [[ImAHumanitarian And he '''really''' means it when he says he wants to eat Toriko and Terry.]]
* ImAHumanitarian: He '''MEANS''' it when he says he wants to drink up Toriko and Terry.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Who says straws can't be badass?
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Has four arms, but the second pair is implied to be grafted on.
* NoodleIncident: [[spoiler: Whatever happened in the pit with Coco is a mystery, but from what is seen, Grinpatch seemed to have won.]]
** [[spoiler: However, it is later revealed that Coco survived.]]
* OffScreenMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: Whatever happened during the fight with Coco is unseen, but from Grinpatch's appearance, it seems the latter won.]]
* RightHandAttackDog: His giant beetle. Unlike many Gourmet Corp. members, he's pretty nice to it.
* ScaryTeeth: Black pointy ones.
* VacuumMouth: Another thing he can do with the straws.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: In comparison to his two [[spoiler: now one]] colleagues, he wears no clothing other than bandana, pants and shoes.

!!Bogey Woods

* AchillesHeel: [[spoiler:His sacrum bone. When Takimaru shoots it out of his body, he becomes paralyzed, though he eventually manages to heal it.]]
* AnimalMotifs: Hermit crabs, both for his masks and his disgusting "Lodge" ability. To drive the point home, his co-worker Cedre calls him "Hermit Crab freak" at one point.
* BodyHorror: He can elongate his body because he has a skeleton composed of 4000 bones and 4600 joints.
* CoolMask: Too bad he ditches it after his initial appearance. [[spoiler: He manages to get another one by the next raid on the Gourmet Chefs.]]
* EatenAlive: [[spoiler: The Hellboros gulps him down after Teppei revives it. He manages to survive, though.]]
* EpicFlail: He holds a weight and sickle in each hand while using his ''arms'' as the chains to emulate a kusarigama.
* GrandTheftMe: His flexible body allows him to take control of all sorts of bodies.
* RubberMan: Played with; his bone structure allows him to elongate his body to become very flexible.
* SmugSnake: Despite having an overwhelming advantage over Takimaru, his ego prevented him from finishing him off.
* SuicidalOverconfidence: [[spoiler: Takimaru is only able to defeat him because Bogey's arrogance gave him enough time to concentrate enough for the final blow.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Masafumi Kimura (Japanese), Mark Fickert (English), Leonardo García (Latin American Spanish)
* ArmorIsUseless: Averted--wears a skimpy but extremely durable armor made from the Crush Turtle's shell. Too bad it's no match for Match's katana.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Prides himself on his brute force.
* TheBrute: Relies on brute strength and isn't too bright.
* FangsAreEvil: More like tusks.

* BlackEyesOfCrazy: His eyes are black, with lavender irises.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Lavender hair and irises.
* KarmaHoudini: He beat up Komatsu and got the Century Soup, and so far in the manga has suffered no repercussions for this.
** Averted in the anime {{Filler}}, where Toriko lays a humiliating CurbStompBattle on him for what he did.
* KickTheDog: Yuu's taking of Komatsu's rightfully sought out Century Soup, causing trauma for the latter.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He uses seasoning to fight. Which appears to be corrosive.
* LightisNotGood: Wears lighter colors than most of the Gourmet Corp, but is just as evil as the rest.

* SoreLoser: His rant after he loses to Toriko is really something to behold...
* StupidEvil: Immediately kills Terry's mom for no reason, while gloating, which provokes Toriko enough to kill him. In addition, he is unable to control the robot to its full extent and [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer uses the slicer attack attack constantly]] which Toriko easily counterattacks, leading to his defeat.

!!Lady Chiyo
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ChikaSakamoto (Japanese)
%%* AxCrazy
* BarrierWarrior: Her Manaita Shield, which is just an over-sized chopping board she uses as a shield. In the anime, it's is composed of [[spoiler:Appetite Energy]].

* CoolOldLady: [[spoiler:Chiru and Gourmet National Treasure Chin]] [[spoiler: miss her greatly and laud her cooking, until her return.]]

* EtTuBrute: [[spoiler:Everyone is shaken by her reappearance, coming to slaughter them all.]]
* EyesAlwaysClosed: Since it's not a pretty sight when she opens them.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: She used to be a nice old lady who cooked at Disappearance Cuisine and was versed in Honoring the Food at a Master's level. When she comes back, she's riding a gigantic zombie condor with a lyebeast and a new member of Gourmet Corp., and her first act is to show how delicate her 100 Million Yen Slice is... by removing all but the bones of an Apprentice Master's midsection... some fifty feet away... without visibly moving.]]
* FallenHero: [[spoiler: Especially on how Chin laments on how far she fell from the CoolOldLady she was.]]
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler: The death of her son drove her to become a Gourmet Corp member.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:It appears she's turning out this way after being nursed back to health by Chin, Setsuno and Nono in chapter 257.]]
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler: Slaughters most of the Gourmet monks before Toriko arrives.]]
* KnifeNut: It's not really the knife that's dangerous, it's the fact that she can '''fillet you from a great distance, making you bones in an instant'''.
* MadnessMantra: "Gratitude, gratitude...can you appreciate ''this?'' Gratitude, gratitude..."
* MamaBear: [[spoiler:The death of her and Chinchin's son was her breaking point. She couldn't "appreciate" that tragic event the way Honoring the Food demanded of her, and she joined Gourmet Corp. because one of the ingredients they are seeking is the rumored ''hors d'oeuvre'' of Acacia's Full Course, which can raise the dead. She wants to use it to bring her son back.]]
** [[spoiler: After meeting with the spirit of her son in the world of souls, she is now at peace and no longer wishes to try and revive him with CENTER.]]
* TheNoseless: Lacks a visible nose.
* NeverMessWithGranny: [[spoiler: Lady Chiyo]] might not be one of the Gourmet National Treasures, but a single swipe of [[spoiler: her]] knife was valued at 100 MILLION yen. [[spoiler: She also completely removes the flesh, muscle, and organs of Apprentice Master Wagon from his underarms to his hips... without him feeling a THING.

* SupremeChef: Master of Honoring the Food and Food's End, capable of cooking and eating all of Disappearance Cuisine's dishes.

* WalkingSpoiler: One can't talk about her past identity and [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn]] without revealing one of the biggest twists of the Bubble Fruit Arc.
* WeakButSkilled: She has precision in executing filleting and barrier techniques, but has notably less stamina than most of the members due to her age.
* WhenEldersAttack: [[spoiler:Lady Chiyo arrives at Chowlin Temple in order to kill one of the Gourmet National Treasures and all of the Apprentice Masters, as doing so will render the ultimate technique of Honoring the Food, "Food's End", no more threat to Gourmet Corp.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroYuki (Japanese)
* AmbitionIsEvil: Though [[spoiler:Starjun]] likes the ambition he has.
* TookALevelInBadass: When we first see him, he's a normal human. When he reappears, he has Gourmet Cells implanted in him.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler: Was raised in an orphanage; however he considered his past shameful and ignored them after he graduated. Even so the kids there were extremely proud of him...until an incident where they all accidentally ingested poison and died. After this he came to realize just how much they admired him and felt incredibly guilty about the fact that he'd ignored them, as well as his lack of fame at the time they died. Now he's obsessed with doing everything in his power to raise his reputation, [[{{Tearjerker}} so at least they'll have something to be proud of in heaven]].]]
* FromACertainPointOfView: When Starjun calls out his claim of being Midora's partner, Otake simply retorts that [[spoiler:Midora]] said he considered ''all'' chefs in the Gourmet Corp. his partner.
* MeaningfulName: Komatsu means "Small Pine", while Otake means "Great Bamboo". And there's a popular story about a bamboo stalk and a pine tree... [[spoiler: and like the bamboo, he "bent" to evil.]]
* RivalTurnedEvil: He came to Chowlin Temple to show Komatsu his new skill and proclaim his intention of making GOD as the partner to the Gourmet Corp's leader [[spoiler:Midora]], with his words before leaving that Komatsu and Toriko should polish their skills to see who the stronger combo is when they next meet.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Now all he cares about is the money and prestige that comes with being a famous chef.
** An even bigger one when he stabs Komatsu and revels in the destruction of the temple.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Apparently, he was much kinder and less arrogant in his youth, just wanting to be a good chef.

* FireBreathingWeapon: The Giant model is equipped with a flamethrower.

!!Scum Beasts
* GiantMook: The second variety to the Giant Model.

* MixAndMatchCritters: They're artificial creatures that are composed of various animals.

[[folder: NEO]]
!! Tropes Associated with NEO
* {{Brainwashed}}: [[spoiler: Going by Teppei's example, at this point it's impossible to tell who was a NEO spy all along and who was brainwashed into switching allegiance. According to Alfaro, all of the Gourmet Corps' chefs were brainwashed into joining NEO. To make matters worse the only way currently known to undo it is to beat it out of them, the problem being they most likely [[DyingAsYourself will not survive]] the level of beating you need to deal.]]
* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler: Those that belonged to the [=IGO=] at first.]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Almost all of the elites in the [=IGO=] and Gourmet Corp are actually spies for [=NEO=].]]
* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: Before its appearance, it was a classic battle of good and evil with [=IGO=] and the Gourmet Corp. Following [=NEO=]'s debut, the struggle has now become a three way battle, with former two being severely crippled in staff and resources.
* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler: Most of the members are actually characters that we'd come to associate with other groups, making the surprise more legitimate.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler: Once they appear, the entire conflict undergoes a major game changer.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KoujiIshii (Japanese), Doug Goodrich (English)
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As the [[spoiler: former]] 2nd in command of IGO.
* DyingAsYourself: The mortal injuries inflicted by Toriko restore his true self right before he is devoured by predators. In his final moments he apologizes to Ichiro.
* GrowingMusclesSequence: After opening both eyes and removing the thing on his nose, he becomes much more muscular and wild-looking.
* TheMole: He's actually an agent of NEO.

!!Uumen Umeda
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi (Japanese), Creator/ChristopherSabat (English), Antonio Merlusa (Latin American Spanish)
* AmbiguouslyGay: A lot of lines suggest this.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: Revealed to be another victim of Joie's "Taste Change". Once Joie is beaten, he finally snaps out of it.]]
* FourEyesZeroSoul: As he reveals his evil nature by killing off higher ups of IGO. [[spoiler: Subverted, he's actually loyal to IGO but had the misfortune to encounter Joie who changes his alliance.]]
* TheMole: He's actually an agent of NEO [[spoiler: via brainwashing]].
* NotSoHarmless: Would you have expected that a guy who looks like Prince Valiant crossed with Leisure Suit Larry would even be ''dangerous'', let alone ''evil''?
** [[spoiler: On top of that, despite Mansam never having released his knocking after Ichiryu taught him a lesson and he joined the IGO... he was ''completely'' aware of just how strong Mansam is. Makes one wonder just what kind of power he's hiding away.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KeiichiNanba (Japanese)
* ActionGirl
* BattleCouple: With Acacia. If indeed this ''is'' Froese... [[spoiler: As a human, yes. Now, nooope.]]
* BornLucky: Weaponized. [[spoiler: Froese's Gourmet Luck is so unbelievably strong that ignoring any actual combat prowess she might have had, when Midora attempts to seriously kill Joie '''NONE OF HIS ATTACKS CAN HIT HIM'''. This is -solely- from her Gourmet Luck - she doesn't even need to try and dodge. However, Gourmet Luck is ''finite'', which seals Joie's fate when he has a rematch with Midora. Not only did Midora's Mirror Neurons copy Gourmet Luck, Joie's own Gourmet Luck had already been drained fighting Starjun.]]
* CameBackWrong: If Joie is truly Froese, who was dead...but there are serious doubts. [[spoiler:He's not.]]
** Chapter 253 shows ''something'' happening to Froese's grave as the ground begins to move up. Whether Joie has anything to do with that is currently unknown.
** [[spoiler:Chapter 338 reveals that Froese's spirit refused to return. Another Food Spirit was drawn in to her revived body.]]
* DeadPersonImpersonation: Jiro and Setsuno think this is the case, because the monster in front of them isn't Froese.[[spoiler: Eventually confirmed. It's indeed not Froese but an evil Food Spirit that took her body.]]
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler: Sorta, the body was already long dead. But is being inhabited by a food spirit.]]
* TheDreaded: People are ''petrified'' of him. The knowledge he's on his way is treated as seriously bad news.
* TheDragon: To Darnil Kahn.
** [[spoiler: More of a DragonInChief with the recent reveal.]]
* TheHeavy: Strongly implied to be this to NEO as a whole. Given he put a scar on ''Zaus''...
** [[spoiler: Justified--Joie's been confirmed to be using the body of ''THE'' God of Chefs, Froese, making him one of the most powerful if not the single most powerful character in the entire series, predating even ''Midora''. Though Jiro and Setsuno have doubts this is truly Froese, as Joie's monstrous inner beast is nothing like Froese's...]]
* EvilOldFolks: He's over 200 years old, and probably far older.
* FaceHeelTurn or FaceMonsterTurn: He can change a person's "flavor", and in turn alter their morality, basically brainwashing them into joining his cause.
** FaceHeelTurn: The Foreshadowing here is so thick you could cut it with a plastic knife--Froese is ''heavily'' implied to be the Dark Chef Joie, as Joie calmly retorts to Setsuno's exclamation that Cinderella (the best, highest-quality, ''legendary'' Great Knife) belongs to Froese: "Yes... that is why it is mine... Do you understand what I'm saying?"
*** [[spoiler:Chapter 243 pretty much confirms it...though it raises questions if this is truly Froese.]]
*** [[spoiler: Subverted, it's not her to begin with. Just a spirit using her body.]]
* GenderBender: [[spoiler:Thanks to Froese having drunk the soup PAIR, which can switch genders, before her death. He revived in a male form, though he can shift back to female form as well.]]
* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler: Implied to be a failed clone of Froese, especially with the cracked skin.]]
* IAmAHumanitarian: Was seen seeking a book on the preparation of human flesh...coupled with the fact that he broke a ''certain'' taboo centuries prior...
* InTheHood: Wears quite the nice cloak [[spoiler: to hide her true face.]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: 'The Dark Chef.' [[spoiler: God Chef.]]
%%* PersonOfMassDestruction
* PhysicalGod: All but a step away from this. Jiro and Setsuno have confirmed that, whether or not Joie is Froese or something else entirely, ''whatever'' it is, it utilizes absolutely 100% of its Gourmet Cells at 100% efficiency--a feat only made possible by eating the ''entirety'' of Acacia's Full Course.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Froese is drawn in a much more lighter tone than most of the characters.
* SamusIsAGirl: Frequently referred to as male, but is actually the female God Chef and Acacia's Combo Partner--or at least a clone.
* SupremeChef: The real winner of the first cooking competition, but his title was stripped away after he...broke certain rules.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: [[spoiler: She]] calls out Jiro on his CantHoldHisLiquor attitude. [[spoiler: [[InsultBackfire Jiro responds by]] [[OhCrap literally stopping the world's axis by punching it]]]].
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Has one when Midora confronts her a second time. She throws everything she has at him only to realize that ''his'' Food Luck is preventing him from being killed. Joie soon finds herself on the opposite end of the power she once so proudly wielded, slowly panicking as nothing affects Midoria. Even trying to summon Acacia and attempting a ShapeshifterGuiltTrip all fail until finally her Food Luck runs out and she begins to disintigrate, begging Midora to save her.]]
* VillainousHarlequin: His [[spoiler:or rather her]] appearance invokes this.
* WalkingSpoiler: She's a girl and more importantly, may be in fact Froese, or at least a clone of her.

* BadassGrandpa: Not only is he the number one chef in the world, but he's also incredibly skilled with a blade both in battle and in the kitchen.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: The reason he's with NEO is because he's been brainwashed by Joie. [[spoiler: Getting hit by Midora's Meteor Spice snaps him out of it]].
* TheCombatPragmatist: [[spoiler: Skewers Chiyo without looking while explaining his plans to Setsuno.]]
* EvilOldFolks: He's a member of NEO, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy though not by choice]].

* ReverseMole: Ordered by Ichiryuu to infiltrate NEO.


!!Nitros in General
* DeepSleep: Nitro can survive for millennia without food and water through cryptobiosis. The downside to this is that they cannot wake up without outside interference. They also need to replenish themselves immediately after waking up.
* TheDreaded: To those who know of their existence which is a closely guarded secret. The higherups of IGO are put on alert when they find signs of increased Nitro activity in the Human World. Chef Yuda's [[OhCrap panic]] [[spoiler:when he sees the Gourmet Corp unleash several Nitros during their invasion]] says it all.
* HairTriggerTemper: They were called "Nitro" because of their hard-to-predict temper, ready to explode at any time. Curiously, the one Toriko encountered in Sky Garden didn't give off any hostility. [[spoiler: It may have been a Blue Nitro.]] Even [[spoiler:The Taste Hermit]] has a temper. Granted, [[spoiler:the Four Kings did wreck havoc in his house and inflicted a head injury on him]]. That would make anyone mad.
* HumanoidAbomination: An apish creature with a bird like face filled with rows of teeth and empty eyes, an image so unnerving that the Gourmet Corps decided to copy it for their GT Robos. [[spoiler:Friendly Nitro like Chichi, Kaka, and the Red Nitro seen in the flashback depicting the lost civilization of Area 7 where they lived in harmony with humans and monkeys have visible pupils in their eyes, making them seem less creepy.]]
* NoBiologicalSex: Due to them being a type of appetite demon, they lack genitals to reproduce because they can be revived countless times.
* LizardFolk: They are commonly degraded into those nicknames by several other characters.
* {{Precursors}}: To modern day chefs, having advanced techniques to cooking specialized animals long before humanity even came up with the methods to do so.
* RedOniBlueOni: There are two subspecies of the Nitro, the [[CaptainObvious Red and Blue]]. The Red have HairTriggerTemper, while the Blue are much calmer, but are arguably more heinous than the former. [[spoiler:The Red Nitro were originally the Blue Nitros' ''slaves''. The Blue Nitro even went so far as to crush the Red Nitros' vocal chords so they could never speak.]]
* SuperSpeed: One bit an Ozone Herb twice so fast that the Herb thought it was bitten by two people at once.

!!Tropes about Red Nitro
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: It copied Toriko's Nail Punch after seeing it once. The one Toriko and Komatsu met in the Sky Garden copied the method of eating the Ozone Herb after seeing them do it just once.
* BenevolentPrecursors: The Taste Hermits dedicated themselves to leaving behind stone murals depicting recipes to ensure that said knowledge would never be lost.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Is a ToothyBird that has rows of teeth covering the top of its jaw
* SlaveRace: The Red Nitro were slaves [[spoiler:to the Blue Nitro]]. Their masters even [[spoiler:crushed their vocal chords rendering them unable to speak]] to make them more like animals.
* SupremeChef: An entire race of these. Acacia discovered "God" by observing the Nitro from a safe distance.
** [[spoiler: Though it seems more like Acacia learned of Nitro through the Blue Nitro - who came to see him a month from the Gourmet Eclipse. "Pair" is even presumed to be a Blue Nitro, meaning they're wholly capable of speaking human language.]]
* ToothyBird: Has MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily
* WingedHumanoid: Some varieties have them.

* OurGhostsAreDifferent: [[spoiler: Kaka we see in the story is a food spirit, yet, her spirit form still persist and cannot be killed again by other.]]
* MotorMouth: She likes to over explain things.
* NiceGirl: Compared to virtually every other Nitro (Red and Blue), she's a sweetheart.
* SupremeChef: She's the Bronze Chef of the Flavor Sages.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: She has very feminine eyes, complete with long eyelashes.

->'''Voiced by:''' N/A
* BadassMustache: Subverted. They're actually his ''eyebrows''.
* PurelyAestheticGlasses: Part of why people assume his eyebrows is a mustache is due to him wearing sunglasses above them.
* SupremeChef: He's the Gold Chef of the Flavor Sages.

!!Tropes about Blue Nitro/[[spoiler:Goumet Nobles]]
* BodyHorror: Unlike the Red Nitro who have regular beaked mouths with [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily rows of teeth]], [[spoiler: the Blue Nitro have their mouths open '''vertically''']].
* HeroKiller: The Blue Nitros [[spoiler:attack -- possibly kill -- at least several members of the 0th Isotope. One also finishes off Ichiryu after Midora spared him.]]
* PickyEater: The Nitro in sky garden spits out the Ozone Herb, the finest vegetable in the Human World, because it is used to even better ingredients.
* {{Precursors}}: To modern day chefs, having advanced techniques to cooking specialized animals long before humanity even came up with the methods to do so.
** AbusivePrecursors: The Blue Nitro enslaved humans [[spoiler:and the Red Nitro]].
* ImmortalProcreationClause: The Blue Nitro cannot reproduce but they can endlessly reincarnate [[spoiler:as long as there is something to eat since they embody appetite. This is why they season and harvest worlds. It's also why they are so afraid of Neo -- anything it eats is gone forever (the energy and mass is removed from the universe entirely) and if left unchecked it will eventually reduce the universe to nothingness.]]

* CuteMonsterGirl: Who'd of thought female [[MonstrousHumanoid Nitros]] looked this cute? [[spoiler: At least, until her face opens vertically...]]
* ImpersonationGambit: [[spoiler:The Kaka that the Four Heavenly Kings meet is impersonating the real Kaka in an attempt to kidnap Komatsu.]]
* NiceGirl: Compared to [[GrumpyOldMan Chichi]]. [[spoiler:It's an act though.]]
* PoisonousFriend: It's implied she's only trying to help Komatsu to get the recipes he retrieved Gourmet Pyramid. [[spoiler: This is a potential reason she tried to approach Komatsu in secret during the fight with Bambina, though what exactly she intended to do is still unknown.]]
* SupremeChef: She, Chichi and a third Nitro called Jiji have the title of Gold Chef, Silver Chef and Bronze Chef.
* TheMole: [[spoiler: A distinct possibility, considering she's actually a Blue Nitro. She was certainly planning on doing ''something'' to Komatsu that she felt the Heavenly Kings wouldn't permit and they appear to harbor suspicions towards her as well.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: She's the first and (currently) only Nitro not to show any hostility towards humans or even a HairTriggerTemper [[spoiler:Averted when Kaka (fake) reveals as a blue nitro......]].

->'''Voiced by:''' N/A
* AffablyEvil: Expresses genuine admiration for Toriko and Komatsu's "combo", though he doubts they will be able to defeat Bambina.
* EmotionControl: [[spoiler: He was able to use "Taste Change" with his tail to make Toriko angrier, in order to fight NEO.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Appears in the Ozone Herb arc, making him the first Nitro seen in the series. Turns out to be a member of the Gourmet Nobility and a personal acquaintance of Acacia, meaning he is a hugely important character.
* NervesOfSteel: Remains perfectly calm while he's right next to [[spoiler:Neo!Acacia after the latter just threatened to eat him.]]
* PickyEater: Spat out the Ozone Herb, the most delicious vegetable in the Human World, because it didn't live up to his standards.
* TokenGoodTeammate: So far, he appears to actually respect humans, making him a rarity among the Blue Nitro. He also showed no hostility when he encountered Toriko and Komatsu in Sky Garden.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Wants to revive Neo in it's Perfect Form so they can finally kill it and seal it in order to finally stop it from eating everything. The plan will cause all life on Earth to be wiped out.]]


[[folder:Misc. Characters]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HideyukiTanaka (Japanese), Creator/ChuckHuber (English), Unknown (Latin American Spanish)

* AllLovingHero: Due to his role in stopping the Gourmet War, people think of him as this. [[spoiler: Seemingly subverted and then played straight. He pretended to be the BigBad so that people would get angry enough to defeat Neo, but his true goal all along has been to save Earth and bring back people from Neo's DeaderThanDead devouring. He's probably the first one to actually feel pity for Neo who he saw as 'all alone' and tried to kill Joie because he thought it would be too cruel for Midora to have to do so]]
* ArchnemesisDad:[[spoiler: Is Toriko and Starjun's.]]
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Acacia is very much the main antagonist of the Gourmet World arc, being the ultimate cause of quite literally EVERYTHING BAD that has happened in the story.]]
** [[spoiler:GoodAllAlong: in the end of the story turns out, that all of that was done to save creatures, devoured by Neo.]]
* BattleCouple: With Froese, as it turns out the latter [[SamusIsAGirl is female.]] It is confirmed the two were in at least a sexual relationship. [[spoiler: Ultimately averted, as Acacia only exploited Froese's skill as a chef and she, in turn is well aware of his darker nature, to the point that she ripped her children out of her womb to hide them from him.]][[spoiler: Later turns out, that Froese's refusal to work with him was another lie, and they had pretty nice relationship, while she was alive.]]
* BishonenLine: Zigzaged. [[spoiler: his ultimate form without Neo is a bold, shiny version of himself, his ultimate form after eating Neo is a HumanoidAbomination with animalistic features which look less human but not as nasty the lumpy misshapen things that he was before eating GOD. After eating the Eight Kings, Neo starts to overcome Acacia, mutating him into a creature even more grotesque than his initial form.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Highly regarded as the legendary Gourmet Hunter who saved the world. Was beloved as a father figure by his three disciples. [[spoiler:Turns out to be a hateful man who cares for nothing but sating his own appetite who pretended to be a loving mentor and father to his disciples so he could manipulate them and shed fake tears over his combo partner's grave. While NEO seemed to be TheManBehindTheMan, ultimately he is just a mindless appetite with a taste for fear, the plan that tear the planet apart was his and his alone. ]][[spoiler: It was all an act to enrage his opponents so that they may create a flavor that is harmful to NEO namely pure Rage.]]
* [[BlindingBangs Blinding Turban]]: His eyes are always covered with a turban [[spoiler: till chapter 243.]]
* BrokenPedestal: Shatters it for his former disciple Jirou in chapter 367. [[spoiler:Jirou begs him with his dying breath not to do the same thing to Midora, since Midora still has fond memories of the happy life (which Jirou has just found out was a lie) they shared together.]]
* CrocodileTears: [[spoiler:Claims in chapter 367 that the tears he shed over Froese's grave were fake.]][[spoiler: They may very well be fake since Froese's death is vital to their plan of sending her to the spirit world to cook NEO.]]
* GenerationXerox: Maybe unintentional, but Acacia resembles an OlderAndWiser Coco with a much sterner look with the reveal of his eyes.
* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler: He held a very powerful appetite demon known as NEO. To present, his appetite demon takes over his human body, and becomes a EldritchAbomination.]] [[spoiler: After he '''ate NEO''', he become and even nastier abomination.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: All Acacia gives a damn about is his own appetite. The lives of anything or anyone else are completely irrelevant. [[spoiler: Actually he acts this way, because this is vital to his plan. Turns out he selfless enough to make people beat him to death, just to help save someone's friends.]]
* KickTheDog: After being revealed as the BigBad, he passes no chance to talk or act like a total bastard, to the point it might seem he's actively trying to make his opponents mad.
** [[spoiler:JerkassFacade: Which is exactly what he's trying to do. Turns out, that he figured out, that NEO can't stand the flavour of rage and tries to deliberately enrage the heroes, so their anger would force him to regurgitate his victims, freeing them.]]
* TheManBehindTheMan: According to Kuriboh, [[spoiler:he fed GOD to the rich and powerful to gain their loyalty. They and their descendants formed NEO.]][[spoiler: He is also behing Ichiryu and Froese's plan, and it seems to be the one he actually believe in.]]
* MookMaker: [[spoiler:How NEO, his appetite demon splits up to retrieve the remaining main course. Although mooks isn't a very fitting word, since at this point his pieces are powerful enough to be a threat to main character.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction: [[spoiler: The Gourmet Monster sleeping within him will ''devour the world''.]]
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: ''Gleefully'' sexist, and brags to Midora that even after he cheated on Froese regularly, she was still a 'proper woman' who'd wait on him.[[spoiler: Once again, this was an act to 'cultivate' people's rage to the extent that they could defeat Neo. He truly loved Froese and thought of her as his precious partner.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler: Subverted: He is very much alive, he's just not quite human anymore.]]
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: [[spoiler: Upon eating God and Center, his Capture was AT LEAST 8000, greater then any individual Eight King. Upon eating his own appetite, NEO, who's own capture level increased to 22,000 upon eating God, their combine dcapture level increased to at least 30,000, the highest recorded capture level in the series, 3 times that of GOD.]]
* [[Really700YearsOld Really 600 Years Old]]: He was in his '''600s''' on his deathbed.
* ScarsAreForever: The reason he wears a turban is to hide the one on his forehead.
* ShroudedInMyth:
* SlasherSmile: Flashes a few cruel, evil grins. [[spoiler: Particularly terrifying after he consumes NEO itself and gains a mouth of razor sharp fangs.]]
* SpeakIllOfTheDead: [[spoiler:Neo!Acacia mocks the late Ichiryuu for being "weak" because the latter actually cared about things besides stuffing his own face. This enrages his opponent Don Slime, Ichiryuu's former Appetite Demon, who had been won over by Ichiryuu's kindness and strength of character.]][[spoiler: He knows Ichiryu is fine in the Spirit world.]]
* VillainousGlutton: Acacia's appetite surpasses almost all others, and he's willing to devour everything that lives to satisfy it.
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler: the fact he's even ''alive'', much less the BigBad...]]
* WasItAllALie: [[spoiler:Acacia confirms to the dying Jirou that the whole "happy family" thing was an act when he claims that his tears over Froese's death were fake.]][[spoiler: Apparently, his villainous and selfish demeanor was an actual lie, since making people hate him was vital to defeat Neo.]]
* YourCheatingHeart: Gleefully reveals to Midora he regularly cheated on Froese. [[spoiler:Probably another lie to enrage Midora.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Sakiko Uran (Japanese), Juli Erickson (English), Isabel Romo (Latin American Spanish)
* BadassBoast: "How many decades... No... How many [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld centuries]] has it being, I wonder, since I've shed blood. So, then, what is it you're doing, [[spoiler: Kuribo]]? [[DeathGlare Depending on your answer]], [[PrepareToDie you may not get out of this unharmed, you child]]!
* BarrierMaiden: Can create protective barrier encompassing the whole human world, to protect it against the aftereffects of [[PersonOfMassDestruction Jiro]]'s attacks.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Setsuno is a TechnicalPacifist who avoids violence when she can, even against monsters, and overall is a very kind and helpful person. But if you manage to make her truly mad... well, Toriko's world is not a gentle world and she is considered a national resource for a reason.
* BlowYouAway: She can manipulate air pressure.
** Alternatively, [[spoiler: she can decrease the air pressure in order to make the air so thin that her opponents normally lose consciousness]].
%%* CoolOldLady
* GagBoobs: Is one more well-endowed characters in the series, in spite of her being a petite old granny.
* HealingFactor: Probably thanks to Food Honor, but it's not sure [[spoiler: she can receive a diagonal cut so deadly that can be hereditary for dozens of generations and shrug it off without effort in seconds]].
* MadeOfIron: [[spoiler: Kousairou's Calorie Gui steals ''TEN MILLION'' Kilocalories from her and she doesn't bat an eye--even after she's also squeezed by Kuribo ''AND'' hit with Cooking King Zaus's Rinne Oroshi, which is a cut so deep it ingrains itself INTO YOUR GENETIC MAKEUP AND IS PASSED ONTO YOUR DESCENDANTS--she healed the wound in moments without much effort.]]
* MorphWeapon: Her kitchen knife "Takitsuba" can change its blade's shape.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Seriously...[[http://www.goodmanga.net/toriko/chapter/93/6 don't]].
* PersonOfMassDestruction: There is around half a dozen creatures on the planet that could force her to go all out. [[spoiler: Cutting tsunamis the size of mountains and miles wide took her less effort than Komatsu cutting a radish, for example.]]
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "You had best not drive my blood pressure any higher... [[YouAreAlreadyDead You'll at least want some time to regret your actions, won't you?]]". Doubles as a BadassBoast, too.
* SupremeChef[=/=]ChefOfIron
* SuperReflexes: She managed [[spoiler: to nearly stop a storm of sub-atomic blades that wiped out a city, the mountain range and a dozen or so miles of the ocean behind her while protecting the chefs and suffering only superficial wounds]].
* WalkOnWater: By hitting the water so fast and lightly as to defy gravity and create perfect balance. And she can move faster than the speed of sound.
* YourHeadAsplode: [[spoiler: Her "Great Pressure Cooker", where she increases the air pressure so much that any creatures in the area will explode]].

!!Knocking Master Jiro
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa (Japanese), Philip Weber (English), Ricardo Rocha (Latin American Spanish)
* TheAlcoholic: Likes his booze, and we almost always see him wasted.
%%* BadassGrandpa
* BishonenLine: [[spoiler: When the last 2 nails of his knocking are removed he instantly turn into handsome middle-aged man]]
* BigGood: Shares with Ichiryu.
* CoolGuns: His Hard-Type Knocking Rifles.
%%* CoolOldGuy
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: We first see him as a harmless drunk on a train asking for booze. [[spoiler: It turns out he is one of the three mightiest beings in the gourmet world]].
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: One hit kills all of the Blue Nitro before NEO comes in, even when they bring out the Golden Cookware.]]
* DeathbyIrony: [[spoiler: All the damage he's ever negated with Knocking in his lifetime hits him all at once when Acacia releases Jirou's Damage Knocking. [[OhCrap Acacia estimates it's enough force to destroy the planet multiple times.]] ]]
* FingerPokeOfDoom: His ability of knocking is so extraordinary that not only he can decapitate a [[spoiler: super-powered resuscitated Nitro]] with a flick, but create an absolute paralysis at the same time for a beast of over [[spoiler: 200]] capture level, whose biology is made to be near-immune to paralysis.
* GodzillaThreshold: After meeting [[spoiler:the fragment of Neo]], Jiro decides to finally [[spoiler:remove the Knocking sealing away his full power.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Relying on "Damage Knocking" throughout his life ultimately seals his fate when Acacia releases it -- even someone as tough as him couldn't survive all of that accumulated force hitting him at once. It's possible that may have been the reason Acacia taught it to him in the first place.]]
* LivingOnBorrowedTime: A big part of his badass cred is how he could easily nullify any damage by Knocking it. [[spoiler:But the damage themselves never actually go away, just delayed, so if his enemy knows how to release all of the Knockings at once, ''all'' of that delayed damage he's accumulated will hit him at once. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverKill Which is supposedly enough damage to destroy the earth several times over, mind you.]]]]
* NoSell: [[spoiler: As if he isn't strong enough in "Rampaging Beast" form, he can use knocking to "paralyze" the damage he takes from attacks. Unfortunately, this doesn't actually ''remove'' the damage. So when all of the Damage Knocking is released at once...]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: In the Gourmet World, Jiro can make himself look younger. [[spoiler: He also used to be a student of Acacia, making him over 500 years old.]]
* TheParalyzer: He's called the Knocking Master for reason, [[spoiler: to the point that he doesn't even need to touch you or even get near you to neutralize you]].
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Destroying entire islands would be a mere nuisance for his abilities. [[spoiler: It goes to the point that he can create apocalyptic world-wide damage by the SIDE EFFECT of one of his attacks. When more of his full power is released, his Guinness Punch is strong enough to destroy the entire Human World.]]
* PhysicalGod: [[spoiler: Just like all of Acacia's disciples, he is THE apex predator even in the Gourmet World. To the point that he managed to stop the rotation of a planet the size of Saturn ''with a single punch''.]]
* PowerLimiter: [[spoiler:The Knocking Acacia performed on him in his youth seals away his full power as the "Rampaging Beast".]]
* RaisedByWolves: And not just any wolf, but [[spoiler:the Wolf King Guinness! The reason Jiro is so freakishly powerful is because Guinness had been feeding him Nitros and Gourmet Cell monsters since infancy. Acacia taunts him by claiming that being raised by an animal made Jiro stupid.]]
* ShapingYourAttacks: [[spoiler:His "Shourou Guinness Punch" a spiraling beam of "Appetite Energy" in the shape of a wolf's head.]]
* StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler: "Grand Knocking", which lets him paralyze ''the entire planet and everything on it''.]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler: His Rampaging Beast form, in which he releases the seals Acacia put on him, turning his entire body black, his body frame becomes slimmer and more skeletal, he eyes turn into white holes, and gains sharp teeth and a long tongue.]]
* TheWorfEffect: [[spoiler: To everybody in the gourmet competition. A single offhand attack managed to stop all of the Bishokukai, the strongest chefs, Nitros, and the Heavenly Kings. He is on the receiving end of this when Neo!Acacia effortlessly kills him even after he released his full power]].
* TemporaryBulkChange: He can turn into a giant by jabbing some knocking guns into his shoulders.
* WorldsStrongestMan: The ''physically'' strongest human character, who is so [[UnskilledButStrong strong]] Acacia had to put [[PowerLimiter Knocking]] on him and teach him techniques to balance it. [[spoiler: His Guinness Punch after having ''some'' of his [[PowerLimiter Knocking]] removed is strong enough to travel 1/5 of the ''Toriko world's'' circumference and would have destroyed Human World if not for Setsuno's Pressure Barrier]].

%%* TokenMiniMoe
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Mint green.

!!Terry Cloth

%%* AllAnimalsAreDomesticated
* AmbiguousGender: Due to inconsistency, it's still not for certain what Terry's gender is. Similar to Crona in ''Manga/SoulEater'', the dub refers to Terry as a boy by default. If a theory early in the manga is correct and anything resembling real-world biology can be said to apply to this series, then Terry was produced parthenogenetically by the mother wolf, and is therefore also female.
* BadassAdorable: She's a puppy, a puppy that can kick the ass of full grown beasts. Even near full grown, she's still adorable.
%%* CanineCompanion
%%* CoolPet
* LastOfHerKind: Possibly? Terry's mother was created by the IGO's cloning techniques, so there could be others of the species, but none have been shown or commented on. [[spoiler:We've now seen another Battle Wolf, one of the Eight Kings no less, in the Gourmet World.]]

%%* UndyingLoyalty: To Toriko and Terry.

* CleverCrows: He's an Emperor Crow. Unlike many examples, it's a positive character.
%%* CoolPet: To Coco.
* EverythingIsBetterWithSpinning: His preferred method of attack is to spin like a drill and pierce through things with his beak.
* FeatherFlechettes: Although he just uses it to obstruct an opponents' vision.
%%* FluffyTheTerrible
%%* GiantFlyer

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/WataruTakagi (Japanese), Creator/BryanMassey (English), Salvador Reyes (Latin American Spanish)
* AccidentalMisnaming:
** He's called Zombie, for one, due to his name sounding similar to that.
** Even the ''closed caption'' has gotten it wrong.
* AnAxeToGrind: His weapon of choice, although it looks more like a butcher's knife.
* BornLucky: [[spoiler: Turns out to have a good chunk of Food Luck on him with him completely unaware of it. It explains why he was able to surivive so many perilious situations throughout the series.]]
* ButtMonkey: [[spoiler:That poor man accidentally becomes Bambina's wife because Zongeh just look exactly the same to Bambina's deceased lover. Later, Zongeh passes out because the eight king kisses that poor soul so many time and puts him into coma.]]
* {{Fartillery}}: Frustrated by his inability to so much as startle a Surprise Apple, he farts on it. ''This works'', putting the apple at "Surprise Level 80".
* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler: He turned out right in there was a shortcut to the Gourmet Show Window in the Century Soup arc, which saved the lives of everyone.]]
* IKnowMortalKombat: He got his "skills" from playing RPG videogames.
* JokeCharacter: For one thing, all the ingredients on his Full Course Menu have Capture Levels of ''1 or less''. Except the Garara Gator, but having the WarmUpBoss of the series on the menu still isn't something to be proud of.
* MuggingTheMonster: When he first appears, he tries to bully Toriko into giving him some of the drinks the latter bought. After Toriko uses a bit of intimidation on he backs down, but when they meet up at the Gourmet Hunter tavern before the Ice Hell arc, he insists on acting like he and Toriko are equals. The other Gourmet Hunters are ''stunned'' by this.
* SmallNameBigEgo
* [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks Throwing Your Axe Always Works]]: [[SubvertedTrope No]] [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120718182712/toriko/images/f/f1/Zonge_Smash.gif it]] [[EpicFail doesn't]].
* WrongGenreSavvy: He seems to believe the world operates to RPG logic. And that he's the hero. Even parodied in chapted 221 where he claims that he got a lot of experience from playing a lot with [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors the Musou]] [[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Series.]]

* GreenThumb: He uses plants and trees to aid him in combat.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler: After receiving a huge shock thanks to Joie.]]
* HypocriticalHumor: Leans toward this. Tells other people to be silent only to blab important info recklessly, and when talking about how reckless revivers are bringing back dangerous ingredients, he admits that it's mostly ''his'' doing.
* MotorMouth: Despite swearing to secrecy, he has a tendency to blurt out what he's trying to keep quiet.

* FromASingleCell: It can regenerate endlessly, making it effectively immortal.

* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: It's capture level is revealed to be 6200 in the manga volumes.

* AndCallHimGeorge: Woe to anyone the Monkey King thinks would be a good playmate.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Comes with being one of the Eight Kings. Bambina also set up a system based on this to control predation on the continent. Unfortunately, Bambina isn't all that interested in managing it. As a result, the four Enbu masters under Bambina have become food-hoarding tyrants, leaving the other monkeys to starve.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Just because he's the goofiest one out of the 8 Kings DOESN'T MEAN IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO PLAY WITH HIM.
* BerserkButton: If you're playing hide and seek with Bambina, do not give the Monkey King reason to believe you're not looking for him. The anger he released after not being found for a whole day was enough for Toriko to relive his entire life. Thankfully, that anger disappeared when the Monkey King decided he must have picked too good of a hiding spot.
* BlessedWithSuck: Being one of the strongest things alive isn't that great when all you want to do is play games with others, since most playmates won't last a second.
* BoisterousBruiser: It's said to have a playful, belligerent personality, unlike the more stoic Heracles. This makes Bambina one of the most dangerous Eight Kings, because it's liable to attack without provocation.
* BreathWeapon: Launches a beam of Appetite Energy at [[spoiler:Kaka]] that is visible from ''space''.
* CameFromTheSky: When Toriko and Co finally reach the top of 100 G Mountain, Bambina falls down from orbit...[[HeavySleeper While still asleep, and the impact doesn't even wake him up.]]
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:Tears apart everyone but Sunny in a blink of an eye. ''Literally''--Sunny blinked for 0.1 seconds and when he opened his eyes, he was the only one standing. Luckily, the others were just Poison Dolls created by Coco, who had the foresight to want to gauge the thing's strength, but still...wow.]] Then it turns out that Bambina [[spoiler:was just playing games with them. It more or less tore them apart ''by accident.'' When they do fight it for real, even after they mastered Enbu, they are once again completely outmatched. Then we find out [[IAmNotLeftHanded he was still holding back]], as he blows away Kaka with an Appetite Energy blast visible from space a mere second after they start fighting.]]
* DancingIsSeriousBusiness: The '''true''' method of obtaining PAIR: [[spoiler: a 1000 step choreographed dance in the form of "Kata" with Bambina that occurs in the space of ten seconds. The "games" Bambina played with them before were only the opening moves of the dance. The Kings supposedly messing up the last step apparently makes him angry enough to want to kill them for real, but it's subverted when it turns out he was trying to kiss them to complete the dance. Kaka interrupting his dance with the spirit of his former mate, on the other hand, incurs his wrath for real.]]
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Bambina loves to play. Unfortunately, it's so strong that its playmates [[AndCallHimGeorge usually don't survive the experience.]] The real reason it set up the "Enbu" system on its continent was to make the other monkeys [[INeedYouStronger strong enough to play with it.]] Heck, [[spoiler: Toriko loses ''another arm'' just arm-wrestling the thing.]]
* TheDreaded: [[spoiler:His true form. Just seeing it sends every monkey in Area 7 running from 100 G Mountain in a panic.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: The strongest ape and one of the Eight Kings no less!
* FlashStep: He can go from the top of the 100 G Mountain to the coastline of Area 7 in an instant. [[spoiler:Later, it tears apart everyone but Sunny in a literal blink of an eye (0.1 seconds).]]
* GenderBlenderName: Kaka says that the name Bambina came from the female courted by the last Monkey King. [[spoiler: His real name is Bambino.]]
* HeartbrokenBadass: [[spoiler:Ultimately, he's just a guy who really misses his dead lover.]]
* HulkingOut: [[spoiler:Once you remove Bambina's "skin", Bambina's dormant power begins to expand and causes his body to swell.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler:In chapter 311, we learn that Bambina's current appearance is not his true form, but a form that suppresses his true power. When Toriko tries to grab PAIR, his "clothes" are blown off, revealing a pure white form.]]
* InASingleBound: He reaches the stratosphere in less than one second, then passes the Mesosphere and enters the Thermosphere [[CrazyAwesome to sleep in near-outer space]]. Keep in mind that the Thermosphere peaks at 500 KM above the planet's surface, and Bambina reaches that point with a "soft jump".
* LivingMacguffin: [[spoiler:Food King "PAIR" is part of its body. Specifically, its testicles. Uh...[[{{Squick}} yeah]].]]
* LonelyAtTheTop: [[spoiler: The fact that he taught Enbu to all the monkeys on the continent in an attempt to make at least one being strong enough to survive playing with him all but says this.]]
* MagicMusic: For lack of a better term, Bambina's testicles are called "The Bell of PAIR", and the sound they make permeates a powerful taste that provides nutrients to the rest of the Area 7 continent, and rejuvenates the body of anyone nearby. In other words, PAIR's so good an ingredient that the sound it makes sustains an entire ecosystem.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: [[spoiler: Acacia eventually lands a hit that blows out one of Bambina's eyes and knocks out half his teeth. Bambina was pissed off and responds with a counterattack that nearly breaks Acacia in half.]]
* ObliviouslyEvil: The apes in the Monkey Restaurant live under constant tyranny and famine thanks to the makeshift government Bambina imposed, and it messily kills anyone it meets in an instant. [[spoiler:Except all Bambina really wants is to make friends and have fun. It just doesn't give any thought to the consequences of its actions or its own immense power.]]
* PintSizePowerhouse: Bambina is barely human-sized, making it one of the smallest creatures encountered thus far and probably the single smallest predator in its super-sized personal ecosystem. It's also strong enough to toss Everest-sized mountains across the entire circumference of the planet for a laugh.
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: Its Capture Level is [[spoiler:6000, which is only slightly lower than Wolf King Guiness' second in command's 6090.]] But it gets worse: [[spoiler:that's the Capture Level of his suppressed form. His true form is undoubtedly higher.]]
** Considering it dwarfs Heracles, who has a capture level revealed to be 6200, it pretty much means that it's true form is indeed higher.
* RazorWind / TailSlap: In his second form, Bambina’s tail whip is capable of sending a PlanarShockwave style slash that chops '''asteroids''' and '''satelites''' in half.
* SolidGoldPoop: [[spoiler:Its testicles are "PAIR" and its actual poop is an incredibly fast form of transportation.]]
* TearsOfJoy: [[spoiler: Bambina has this moment when the four heavenly kings are now capable of playing with him during the second match. Shed some tears after Bambina sees his mate after the fight.]]

!!Wolf King "Guinness"
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: [[spoiler: Guinness can literally learn everything about his environment with a single sniff that nobody's personal preference and DNA will be safe from his nose. [[AstralProjection Anyone unlucky enough to be inspected will have their soul temporarily ripped out of their body]]]]
* BerserkButton: Harm his family and watch him fly into a fury.. [[spoiler: Even his adopted son.]]
* HowlOfSorrow: Guinness howls in grief when he senses [[spoiler:Jirou's death at the hands of Acacia.]]
* ItsPersonal: All of the Eight Kings are animals and vital parts of their ecosystems, with most of their fighting coming from territoriality. They don't really bear their opponents ill will. The exception is Acacia and [[spoiler: When Guinness recognizes him as Jiro's murderer, he rushes straight for him, clearly hateful and enraged.]]
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: [[spoiler: Acacia takes off Guinness's paw. Guinness barely seems to notice it.]]
* PapaWolf: [[spoiler: Literally raised Knocking Master Jirou from infancy by fedding him Red Nitro and Gourmet demons as baby food. He is ''deeply unhappy'' when he catches Jirou's scent on Acacia.]]
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: Has the highest capture level shown so far, that level being [[spoiler:6090]]. [[spoiler: and that's actually just the '''second in command!''']]
* ShockwaveStomp: Its step sends ripples through the Earth and sent Toriko and Starjun flying ''hundreds of kilometers'' away while they ''anchored themselves to the ground''.
** Guinness later performs the same move against [[spoiler: Acacia, but to a much greater scale, sending MASSIVE ripples across the entirety of the Toriko earth.]]
* SuperBreath: [[spoiler:Just sniffing it causes beings around it to just collapse for no reason.]]
* SuperSenses: Guinness' sense of smell is so keen that a single whiff, called "Guinness Search," extracts the sum total of knowledge and information from any living or non-living entities within a huge radius, briefly causing its enemies to suffer fainting spells as though their soul was sucked out. This usually leaves them wide open to a fatal coup de grace from Guinness itself.
* SuperSpeed: If the other showings of the species are any indication, this canine is ''fast''. [[spoiler: Chapter 354 shows it can cross hundreds of kilometers in an instant after taking a simple piss on the piece of NEO it killed.]]
* UnstoppableRage: [[spoiler:Gives Acacia a massive beatdown when he realizes Acacia and Neo killed Jirou.]]

!!Snake King "Mother Snake"
* AnimalisticAbomination: It is so big that it can grow to the circumference of the entire ''Toriko'' Earth, measuring in at a colossal 220,000 kilometres. Yet, the Mother Snake can create massive hurricanes in gourmet world by simply "passing" the area. It's so big it eats creatures in ''space'' that get too close to the planet.
* TheDreaded: As an Eight King, all creatures of the Gourmet World bow down before the Mother Snake's head, because anything that shows its face is promptly eaten.
* SchmuckBait: The serpent uses Earth's fragrance to attract its meal.
* SuperSpeed: Adult Mother Snakes are said to be able to move as fast as meteors. Given its one of the Eight Kings, it probably moves faster than that. Faster than light, to be precise. [[FridgeBrilliance Given it fought Moon, which has the gravity of a black hole, this makes perfect sense.]]
* TornadoMove: [[spoiler: It can generate giant permanent "Mother Tornadoes" that spins in all kinds of direction (including sideways) when fighting Whale King Moon. The twisters themselves are so chaotic that it renders air travel to be too dangerous for Toriko and company.]]
* NightmareFace: It will show this expression if it spots any mobile beings in sight.

!!Dragon King "Derous"
* AnimalBattleAura: Komatsu's new kitchen knife can release the image of the dragon king itself.
* BreathWeapon: [[spoiler: Able to produce an extra dimensional laser beam that is able to wound NEO and shoot through space.]]
* DragonHoard: [[spoiler: Midora learns the hard way when he tried to retrieve the precious healing water the descendant of Derous held.]]
* GiantFlyer: Its size can grow up to an enormous 350m according to data book. The current dragon king can easily dwarf canyon and terrain under its feet.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Derous is a giant dragon with a giant fang and some noddles-like tongue in its mouth and with 5 pair of EYES.

!!Bird King "Emperor Crow"
* CastingAShadow: Anything that falls under its shadow dies. [[spoiler:It can even kill anything ''above'' it this way by generating a sphere of power below it that acts like a miniature sun.]]
* CreepyCrows: According to Gourmet World phenomena, its shadow discloses its victim's fate, death.
* EnergyWeapon: [[spoiler:It weaponizes its energy into a little power sphere that powerful enough to instantly wipe out NEO's blob monster.]]
* {{Giant Flyer}}: It is so gigantic that its feather easily tower "regular" size humans.
* MasterPoisoner: Its ''shadow'' is an instantly fatal poison. No telling what toxins its actual body might hold.
* StupidityInducingAttack: Getting caught in the Emperor Crow's shadow will cease all thought process and disintergrate the victim.

!!Deer King "Sky Deer"
* AnimalsNotToScale: Well, it is Toriko universe, but, a deer with a size of a giant land mass is something new to the series.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: It's the size of a small country.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: The most gentle and docile of the Eight Kings. It never fights, even when angered...because its personal TimeAbyss and army of monsters kills everything instead.
* FlunkyBoss: Its antlers house swarms of the most powerful predators in the Gourmet Kingdom, all made tame by fear of the Sky Deer itself. Any enemies that aren't eliminated by its TimeAbyss are torn apart by its flunkies in short order.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: Although Sky Deer was cautious enough to [[MakeSureHesDead make sure Acacia is dead]], only for him evolve to adapt to it’s time accelerating back channel. As Acacia cut Toriko's neck after he escaped, and ate GOD then let NEO kill the Eight Kings]]
* Planimal: It has forest growing on it and antlers spreading out like branches. It even has an ecosystem that contains extremely powerful organisms.
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: Has a [[spoiler:6450, the fourth highest of the Eight Kings.]]
* ShockAndAwe: Shoots lightning from it's eyes.
* TimeMaster: Its main form of self-defense is a modified Back Channel that can age its enemies by centuries in just a few seconds.

!!Whale King "Moon"
* AnimalisticAbomination: It fought the Mother Snake thousands of years ago, and its skin looks like the surface of a meteorite.
* BigEater: Moon's stomach doesn't even appear to be on this plane of existence. Similar to NEO, whatever it eats never comes back.
* GravityMaster: As its name implies, Moon is able to exert its own gravitational pull, and its stomach completely obliterates anything it eats. It's able to adjust the local gravity when needed, as well.
* KrakenAndLeviathan: As the Whale King, it fills in the position of "Leviathan".
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Black Hole is part of this thing's name, which fits with how this thing's power is described.
* RockMonster: Its skin looks like the surface of a meteorite, because...
* SuperpowerLottery: It is the whale that absorbs '''all light and matter'''. A meteorite the size of the moon [[ColonyDrop once dropped into the Black Triangle]], where the Whale King makes its home, and disappeared without a trace. [[HolyShitQuotient One guess as to what happened to it, because that's all you will need.]] Actually, [[spoiler:it took to wearing part of it.]]


* ArchEnemy: The Appetite Devil Don Slime seems to have a personal beef with Neo, and is one of the only beings who can supposedly fight it evenly. [[UnknownRival It's apparently a one-sided rivalry since Neo doesn't care about anything but eating -- it doesn't even remember who Slime is.]]
* BigEater: Entire worlds haven't been able to sate Neo's appetite.
* BodyHorror: Neo's possession of Acacia is a mass of gigantic Gourmet Cell tumors growing out of Acacia that vaguely resemble Neo's face.
* DeaderThanDead: Anything NEO devours is completely and utterly removed from existence, and cannot even be reincarnated through Gourmet Cells.
* DeathByDespair: NEO's favorite meal is prey overwhelmed by terror and despair.
* DemonicPossession: Poor Acacia is Neo's current host.
* TheDreaded: The present day Nitro are rightly terrified of it. Their entire scheme is simply a last ditch effort to seal Neo away for keeps.
* EmotionEater: Almost literally eats fear. It savors the dopamines emitted by living beings in moments of mortal terror. One of Neo's favorite tricks is to stalk its prey for three days straight, staring it right in the face the entire time, and finishing it off when its fear peaks.
* EnergyAbsorption: Don Slime realizes too late that NEO is absorbing the energy from his attacks. This is apparently an ability NEO did not possess during their first encounter ages ago, which is why Don was caught off guard. If there is a limit to how much energy it can consume, it's a staggeringly high one -- Neo has eaten a supernova and Jirou's Grand Knocking (which has enough energy to paralyze the entire Toriko series Earth) with no problems.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Bugs, dinosaurs, dogs, people, Nitro...if it's afraid, Neo will enjoy eating it. In chapter 364 it eats a ''supernova''. Like Midora, it weaponizes this by literally eating the energy of attacks directed at it.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: NEO was originally nothing but a weak appetite demon who was thought to have no power or will, until it was free from the Nitro who enslaved it, at which point it slowly became the planet devouring demon king that even the Nitro fear.
* GeniusBruiser: This particular incarnation of NEO is especially dangerous since it also has Acacia's intelligence and techniques.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Yes surpsingly enough. Once he's defeated and Acadia passes on. He's reverted back to his original state. However Toriko shares some of his food with him. The fact that someone actually ''cares'' for him is enough to make him turn over a new leaf. Next we see him, he's among Toriko's guests at Rin and his wedding recpetion.]]
* HealingFactor: NEO can reabsorb any flesh it has lost by eating it. When Don Slime chopped off one of its arms, it immediately ate the arm and promptly grew it back.
* TheHunterBecomesTheHunted: Toriko takes a bite out of NEO in chapters 373 and 390, sensing there's an amazing flavor just waiting to erupt from it, and declares that NEO will become his Full Course's Meat Dish.
* HumanoidAbomination: Its original form vaguely resembles an emaciated human.
* ImpossiblyDeliciousFood: NEO itself apparently. Toriko may hate Acacia, but he bears NEO no ill will. The reason he wants to defeat NEO anyway? After observing him for a subjective month in the Back Channel, Toriko has realized that NEO is super tasty and would be the perfect Meat Dish for his Full Course.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Ripped apart and devoured "Air", the Blue Nitro who killed Ichiryu.
* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: Since that means its prey is good and scared.
* MotherOfAThousandYoung: Neo's "pieces" are dangerous predators in their own right, though they are outmatched by the Eight Kings.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Though it really was very weak at first, it pretended to be even more helpless to trick its Nitro masters into ditching it on a planet.
* PlanetEater: Has consumed countless worlds and is prepared to devour Earth.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Once Neo slipped its leash, it devoured countless worlds the Nitro had been "cooking" for themselves.
* UngratefulBastard: Though it's actually part of their plan to seal Neo away, the Blue Nitro have been feeding it a steady supply of victims and Acacia's Full Course. Neo devours one of them at the earliest opportunity anyway.
* VillainousGlutton: Has an insatiable appetite that the ecosystems of entire worlds has not been able to satisfy, and it likes to 'season' its meals by making them as scared as possible before killing them. Komatsu is more sympathetic when he learns about it and wonders if Neo is just looking for a dish that can truly sate it, not unlike Midora.
** Notably, [[spoiler: Acacia's]] whole plan against Neo was based on the hope that Neo might finally be straying from this trope, its insatiable appetite sated to the point when feeding it enough of something which taste it loathes [[spoiler: [[EmotionEater namely rage]] in the form of as many super-powerful attacks made in anger as possible]] would make it essentially vomit back everything it consumed.
* WhatTheHellAreYou: After Neo effortlessly devours everything Don Slime throws at it, including a ''supernova'', and begins munching on Slime without any problems (Don Slime's cells can usually destroy beings who devour them from the inside), Don Slime demands that Neo tell him just what the hell it is. The Blue Nitro Pair, having just arrived to check up on Neo, confirms Slime's suspicions that Neo's Gourmet Cells are somehow different from normal Gourmet Cells which is why it was named "Neo" in the first place.

!!Don Slime
* BreakTheBadass: Dies screaming in frustration and fear as Neo devours him alive.
* FluffyTheTerrible: The name "Slime" didn't impress him.
* ImmortalsFearDeath: He tears up when he realizes being eaten by Neo will permanently kill him.
* KingOfAllCosmos: He claims to have once been the king of the universe.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: For all his aggression and his foul mouth, he does care about Ichiryuu and the well-being of the Earth.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: He can destroy entire planets with his fists, summon meteor showers at will and create ''supernovas'' in his hands.
* OneWingedAngel: He can change from a little blob looking thing (hence his name) to a gigantic multi-legged vascular beast.
* SirSwearsAlot: He's quite the potty mouth.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Moreso than any other Appetite Demon. He can manipulate his cellular structure to turn into ''anything''.
** AsteroidsMonster: He can break pieces of him off to turn them into different things too, even hiding them in other people. He's even trying to make a new body for Ichiryuu.

* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Its mature form resembles a giant frog. Jiji notes that it's bigger than its past manifestations and realizes that he's only ever seen the tadpoles.
* BalloonBelly: Right after eating the Moon, giving it a vague resemblance to Pac-Man.
** It can also condense its body into a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything suspiciously phallic shape]] and reflect attacks by expanding outwards.
* BeastOfTheApocalypse: Despite its name and its nature as a Divine Beast, this seems to be GOD's true nature. It appears whenever the world's "savoriness" reaches a peak, then it consumes and absorbs it all by eating most of the life on the planet.
* BigEater: Every time it manifests it devours most of the life on the planet to absorb all of its flavors. It also ''gulps down the Moon'' in its debut.
* ExtremeOmnivore: GOD eats the Moon with no signs of indigestion. It also devours most of the life on Earth whenever it appears.
* FusionDance: The mature GOD is a bunch of immature GOD tadpoles fused together in the form of a giant frog.
* ImpossiblyDeliciousFood: Said to be the King of all Ingredients. To put it in perspective, its scent made an ordinary ''apple'' irresistible to the Heavenly King's Appetite Devils. Beasts from around the world flock to its presence despite the risks because it smells so damn good. This just makes it even easier for it to eat them. Which in turn makes it even tastier since it absorbs their savoriness.
* LightIsNotGood: It is a Divine Beast said to be the greatest ingredient of them all. It is also a vicious apex predator responsible for mass extinction events throughout the planet's history.
* LivingMacguffin: This is the ingredient that everyone in the series from the heroes to the BigBad is hunting.
* NighInvulnerable: Toriko's Jet Forks and Sunny's Spatulas bounce off of GOD when it condenses and expands itself. When Zebra tries his Voice Cutter, the beast isn't even scratched.
* OverlyLongTongue: It's a giant frog after all. When Sunny deflected the tongue with his Spatula, it was able to latch on to the ''Moon''.
** Taken even further when it shoots out its tongue to eat other beasts; it circles the ENTIRE PLANET (which, as a reminder, is the size of NEPTUNE) and touches its back creating hurricane force winds during the process due to the tongue's sheer speed.
* PoweredByAForsakenChild: Properly cooking GOD requires a vast amount of lifeforce. Even the God of Chefs Froese was brought to the brink of death preparing GOD despite her mastery of Food Immersion. The tiny piece of GOD prepared in Area 6 required [[HumanResources mass sacrifices]] since Area 6 lacked a chef of Froese's caliber. Even then, Match exhausted himself while cooking the piece of GOD.
* PowerupFood: When eaten it awakens the Gourmet Cells in the brain. This makes it one of the most important ingredients for reviving an Appetite Devil in its host.
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: Its Capture Level is 10,000, the highest seen in the series, far outstripping even the Eight Kings.
* SuperSpeed: Dodges Coco's machine gun mold spears (which move close to light speed) with less effort then even Bambina did. When Starjun traps it in a blaze dome, he states that with that type of speed it could go from one side of the planet -- which is the size of ''Neptune'' -- to the other in an instant, meaning it can travel even ''faster'' than the speed of light.
* SuperStrength: When it latches on to the Moon with its tongue, GOD manages to ''pull the Moon out of orbit'' and brings it closer to Earth before swallowing it whole.
