Hunting MethodEdit


Due to being exposed to so many poisons, Coco's body became capable of synthesizing its own powerful poisons, making him a Poisonous Human (毒人間 Doku Ningen). His poison can be secreted from any part of his body, and he can control its concentration and effects. His poison is composed of his own bodily fluids, meaning he becomes dehydrated the more poison he produces, with his initial limit being 15 liters. By the time he does battle with Invite Death, the volume of poison he could produce increased an unknown manifold. His poison tends to become darker when he increases its lethality. Producing different types of poison and applying them in different ways gives him a variety of abilities. His body contains over 500 different types of poison antibodies, and can adapt nearly instantly to new ones with the exception of Gourmet World poisons like the Green Rain. It should be noted that some of his poisons act more like acid, and in some cases, they are actually composed of acid, giving his poison highly corrosive properties. He can also absorb his poison back into his body.

Superhuman VisionEdit

Coco's enhanced sense as one of the Four Heavenly Kings is vision. He has the ability to see non-visible spectra of light due to the high amount of cone cells in his eyes and can read electromagnetic auras in order to predict an animal's (or person's) next action. This serves as the basis of his fortunetelling abilities. Coco's visual processing abilities are similarly enhanced to keep up with this visual prowess; Toriko notes that the symbols on Gourmet Casino's enormous and unpredictable 100-wheel slot machine are essentially 'standing still' for Coco.[1]

Fortune TellingEdit

Coco earns most of his living by working as a fortune teller, and his fortunes have a 97% accuracy rating. His visual powers can even see the "Shadow of Death" over people and animals who soon will die. While these predictions of death are generally accurate, they can sometimes be subverted in various ways, such as when Komatsu temporarily died as Coco predicted, only to be revived by "Knocking Master" Jiro. With his fortune telling, he was able to win a trillion yens in one day, and defeat Livebearer despite his opponent cheating. 



A phenomenon which causes one to perceive not just the natural reception from a stimulus like hearing a sound or seeing a color, but also completely other kinds of sensations. Using this sense Coco grasped the slight difference in electromagnetic waves seething out of the Gourmet Tasting Cards during the game of Food Concentration against Livebearer. Using his synesthesia Coco could easily discern the cards electromagnetic waves and by forming them into images he searched out cards having the same 'color' and 'shape' allowing him to predict which cards were hits and which were not.


Coco is skilled enough to Knock a Puffer Whale, using a Delicate-Type Knocking Gun. He is also able to use his poison to Knock Livebearer.[2]

Tactical GeniusEdit

Coco has demonstrated excellent tactical ability, as shown during his battle against a GT Robo, where he uses his poisons to bypass the robots poison defenses, infiltrate its body and melt the Robo's Core antenna, as well as during the Food Concentration game. He correctly predicted that his opponent, being the owner of the entire casino, would have rigged the entire game set-up to be in his favor as much as possible, and successfully used Livebearer's arrogance and complacency against him, through Coco's own prior knowledge of poison and the properties of the various ingredients in the game.

Life EraseEdit

Life Erase (消命 Shōmei) is a technique that Coco uses while hunting Puffer Whale. By lowering his killing intent, Coco erases his presence allowing him to get close to an animal without it being aware. 


While not a Chef, Coco has displayed some knowledge and ability to prepare specially-prepared Ingredients, particularly those involving poison, such that he is one of the few people capable of successfully removing the poison sack of a Puffer Whale (though he admits that his success rate is very low compared to others and is incapable of performing the task if tired in any way). He also provided advice to Komatsu during the process on how to prepare some of the ingredients during Food Concentration, demonstrating advanced knowledge on preparing ingredients for their nutritional value and which ones complement each other the best.

Weapons SpecialistEdit

In battles he has different weapons. There are bullets where he can increase the power and speed by spinning them upon release, swords created from his blood and poison, which create blades that are stronger than steel, and armor that is made of the same substance as his swords. Recently he created a bow and arrows that he can use without missing his target and a spear with the throwing speed of mold spore discharge (the fastest speed of any living being).

Food HonorEdit

With the teaching of Food Honor he learns how to reduce his useless movements, be more delicate, faster, stronger, and create new types of poison. In the latest battle with Grinpatch in the Cooking Fest Arc he hinted about a dangerous poison that could shorten his life or even kill him.

Food Immersion (食没 Shokubotsu): Coco has mastered Food Honor to the extent of learning the secret technique of Food Immersion with this ability he can store and produce enough poison to create a copy of himself and Kiss for his Poison Doll, flood the area where he is fighting and still be able to produce more to battle with. His limit of poison released increased from 15 liters to well over 100 liters since he can produce more than enough to make a perfect copy of him and Kiss and still have enough to fight. In the anime he was able to store the poison from Invite Death that flooded the area.

Gourmet CellsEdit

After Coco is mortally wounded, Chichi feeds him cells from several Red Nitro, including itself, which increases his strength.[3]

His Gourmet Cells are compatible with Meteor Garlic.[4]

Appetite DemonEdit

Poison Devil

Poison Devil, conqueror of planets.

Coco's Gourmet Cells are host to an ancient Appetite Demon known as the Poison Devil (ポイズンデビル Poizundebiru), which enslaved its victims with poison and used them to conquer planets.[5] It is an emaciated traditional Japanese ghost with stringy, black hair and empty, void-like mouth and eyes.

  • AIR:[6] Coco's Gourmet Cells start to awake and he has more control over them than before. He can even morph his left arm into the arm of his Appetite Demon.
  • PAIR:[7] Coco's Gourmet Cells awaken in his right arm, allowing him to morph his right arm into that of his Appetite Demon.
  • ANOTHER:[8] Coco's Gourmet Cells awaken in his tongue, allowing him to morph his tongue into that of his Appetite Demon. It also gives him the ability to comprehend tastes of things that were previously inedible, like rocks, and reawakens tastes and memories that were forgotten.
  • NEWS:[8] Coco's Gourmet Cells awaken in his left leg, allowing him to morph his left leg into that of his Appetite Demon. It also gives him the ability to create and maintain Back Channels.[9]
  • EARTH:[8] Coco's Gourmet Cells awaken in his right leg, allowing him to morph his right leg into that of his Appetite Demon.
  • ATOM:[8] Coco's Gourmet Cells awaken in his head and torso (except his brain and heart), allowing him to morph his head and torso into that of his Appetite Demon.
  • GOD:[10] Coco's Gourmet Cells awaken in his brain.


Coco Intimidation small

Most wild beasts can sense the danger of Coco's poison, frightening them off instantly.[11][12] Coco's actual Intimidation takes the form of his Appetite Demon.[13] The color of his intimidation aura is purple.

Appetite EnergyEdit

Coco learns to use the Appetite Energy alongside the other Heavenly Kings during his fight against the Four Beast, by performing the combination attack Dinner of Kings. After that, his Appetite Demon awakens. Thanks to this, he can use this demon to produce his Devil Poison.


After being defeated by Bambina, Coco learns Enbu from "Kaka" and several masters. This allows all 60 trillion of his cells to transfer energy through and out of his body like a sieve, such as the force of attacks and the gravity of 100G Mountain.

Coco hitting Invaitdeath with his Mold Spear small

Mold Spear (モールドスピア Mōrudo Supia): A spear made with poison similar to mold spores, its the speed of light, making it the fastest speed reached by any living creature in the world and making it almost impossible to dodge when thrown. Formerly, Coco could only manage to create one spear at a time.[20]

Hell poison

Hell Poison (毒地獄(ヘルポイズン) Heru Poizun): Coco uses this powerful poison when he wishes to destroy his foe entirely. He only uses it when no other lifeforms who might be harmed are around.

Devil Poison

Devil Poison (デビルポイズン Debiru Poizun): Coco uses this worst-case-scenario poison as an absolute last resort;[23] due to his Gourmet Cells taking a considerable amount of energy from him, his hair loses pigmentation after its use and it leaves him near death. Coco's Appetite Devil seemingly drips the Devil Poison directly from its mouth into the victim's mouth.[24] After eating AIR, he no longer loses his hair pigmentation or suffers any ill effects when using it. When he uses it on Gorilla Taurus, he claims that it is an "addiction" with guaranteed dependency, in essence, this poison is akin to a highly addictive narcotic. This type of poison is strong enough to force Grinpatch to go berserk doing random attacks, and much later gets him sick despite the multiple filters that the Sous Chef's body possesses. It also attracts those who have been infected, regardless of their distance.

Defensive TechniquesEdit

Poison Dressing small

Poison Dressing (ポイズンドレッシング Poizun Doresshingu): Coco's skin becomes flush with poison. This serves as a sort of armor for him, as wild beasts can detect this poison from afar and become wary of approaching or attacking him.[25]

Doku Maku small

Poison Membrane (毒膜 Doku Maku, Poison Skin in the English dub): Coco 'sweats' a large amount of poison, forming a layer of liquid poison over his entire body. This poison forms a protective barrier against other poisons or corrosive chemicals.[26]

Poison Decoding (Unnamed): Coco, with his wide knowledge in poisons, their effects and chemicals, and his bodily functions, can decode any poison that affects him. This ability is first shown in the Puffer Whale Arc, when he gets injected by the Devil Serpent and decodes the poison, as he assumes it as a challenge from the Devil Serpent.[28] Later, after learning Food Honor, it is shown that he can do this in the blink of an eye, effortlessly amidst battle, with the Four Beast Arc.

Supplementary TechniquesEdit

Poison Solidification (毒液凝固化 Dokueki Gyōko-ka): By combining his poison with clotting agents from his blood, Coco can solidify his poison into the shape of various weapons.[29]

Poison Doll (毒人形 (ポイズンドール) Poizun Dōru): After his training in Food Honor, Coco can create a perfect duplicate of himself or someone else made with poison. The duplicates are so flawless that the duplicate of Kiss could fly independently and reveals bones when destroyed.[33] Post timeskip, when Coco is on Yuto Island, he shows his improved Poison Doll ability and is able to create 2 dolls in a short period of time.

Joint AttacksEdit

Poison Knocking Nail Punch (Unnamed): Coco shoots paralyzing poison and waits for it to take effect, while Toriko charges up his 5-Hits Nail Punch. Once the poison paralyzes the target, Toriko hits the the target with his attack. This is used on a Devil Serpent during the Puffer Whale Arc.

Toriko first projects several Flying Forks to create a Cannon Fork, Sunny drives it with his Hair Lead which gives it momentum and a direction to strike, Coco adds a Poison Coating by firing a large amount of poison at the Fork, and finally Zebra electrifies it with his Thunder Noise. Even though it is a mighty movement done against the Four Beast, it does minor damage to the monster as it is quickly broken.

Ou Shoku Bansan small

Dinner of Kings (王食晩餐 Ō Shoku Bansan, Meal Fit for a King in the English versions): A joint attack using the effort and Appetite Energy of all Four Heavenly Kings, the Kings concentrate all their energy into a ball of pure appetite, which, when launched, turns into a giant all-consuming maw. The attack proceeds to consume the prey, regardless of the opponent's actions, until it is completely eaten, and forms into a ball, which harmlessly bursts after some time. One of the greatest advantages of this technique is that it will only aim for the intended prey, and nothing else, leaving anything unnecessary in a separate sphere. The greatest disadvantage of this technique is that the process of making this move requires a great deal of concentration and energy, leaving the users vulnerable to attack. Furthermore, for this technique to work, the users "appetite" and "spirits" need to sync.[34]

Poison Sound Armor small

Poison Sound Armor (ポイズンサウンドアーマー Poizun Saundo Āmā): Coco covers the target with poison to infect enemies who touch the target, while Zebra protects the target by using Sound Armor. This is used to protect Komatsu from Starjun during the Cooking Festival Arc.[35]

Supplementary TechniquesEdit


Poison Life (生命毒(ポイズンライフ) Poizun Raifu): Coco creates a poison that is a living organism itself and can act as an independent human with emotions and other reactions. It is what gives his Poison Doll "life".[40] It can also mimic the abilities and personality of the person the doll is modeled after, like when his Toriko Poison Doll is able to mimic Toriko's acute sense of smell.[41] Coco is also capable of recreating Mappy's Croakswagon, including the great speed at which it can travel.

Poison Umbrella

Poison Umbrella (毒傘 Doku Gasa): A simple umbrella made of poison, Coco states it is strong enough to protect against machine gun fire. The Poison Rain of the Poison Rain Prairie rolls off of the umbrella like water, but the region's Poison Hail easily makes a hole in it.[42]
