Crow King colored

Crow King's color scheme

Being an Emperor Crow, it is a gigantic bird with dark red feathers. Its size is so great that those beneath it will perceive it as a night sky.


Not much is known of the Crow King's personality, but being one of the Eight Kings it is likely a fearless entity.


Emperor Crow RaceEdit

Being one of the Eight Kings, the Crow King is a representative of the Emperor Crow race.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

As one of the Eight Kings, the Crow King is considered one of the most powerful creatures in the Gourmet World, and the supreme ruler of the skies.

Due to its ability to spread deadly poison with just a flap of its wings, it is said that all creatures entering the shadow cast by the Crow King will stop thinking and die.[1]

Its true power is shown by being able to create shadows anywhere around its being, even above its own body. The key to this ability is that the Crow King creates a powerful miniature sun of concentrated light energy, which in turn gives creation to shadows. Those who find themselves in these shadows cannot think and are ravaged to non-existence by the energies generated by the Crow King's miniature sun.[2]

Crow King can also shoot Appetite Energy beams out of its beak.[3][4]


Aside from its immeasurable strength, what truly makes this mighty creature of the sky as 'king' is their "sensitivity" to nature, much like how small animals can sense predatory threats, changes in the weather, or imminent natural disasters. This allows the Crow King to sense tiny occurrence across the planet which may prove important to its survival, to a far greater extent than even the most keen animals. Even non-natural crises and events can be detected or anticipated by the Crow King, such as its detection of Toriko's rising power following his duel with Starjun. This nearly omniscient power is what has ultimately allowed the Crow King and its descendants to survive countless mass-extinction events which otherwise would have been lethal even to them.[5]



Emperor Shadow (烏王の影エンペラーシャドウ Enperā Shadō, literally meaning "Crow King's Shadow"): By using its powerful Appetite Energy, the Crow King creates a ball of energy that emits a light so bright that it can be considered as bright as the sun. By emitting the light, the Crow King casts its shadow throughout all directions, preventing opponents from avoiding its shadow.[2]


AIR ArcEdit

Just after the Four Heavenly Kings, Komatsu, and the Hex Food Beast Knights capture AIR, Heracles takes no chance of missing an opportunity to give birth so she quickly ends the battle between her and Toriko and proceeds to consume the high amounts of fresh air that has blanketed Area 8. After giving birth, the new foal proceeds to travel on the Rainbow Bridges and once more revives the age old tradition of the Herac Response.[6] As the foal lets out its mighty voice to let its presence be known, the Crow King, along with the rest of the Eight Kings, hears the call of the young Herac.[7]


After Whale King Moon goes on the move, the Crow King senses this and is seen flying over Coco and Tylan, much to their surprise and awe.[8]

After passing Coco and Tylan, the Crow King confronts an enemy. The enemy itself is none other than the part of Neo which landed on Area 3. The Neo part grew wings the instant it saw the Crow King to avoid its shadow.[1] However, the Crow King countered its opponent's defense by creating its own artificial sunlight to cast its shadow onto its opponent, erasing the piece of Neo within the Crow King's shadow.[2]

When Jiro dies, Guinness lets out a howl, calling to the other Eight Kings.[9]

GOD ArcEdit

The Eight Kings respond to Guinness' call by assembling at the battleground in Area 2.[10][11]

Neo eating Empelor Crow's body

Neo eats Crow King.

Crow King tries to catch CENTER in its Emperor Shadow but is outshined by Neo, which then leaps into the air, enlarges its head, and consumes the left side of Crow King's body. Crow King fires several blasts of Appetite Energy, all of which Neo consumes. Snake King then swallows Neo, saving Crow King.[12]


Emperor Crow's data

Crow King's data

  • The Crow King and its race of Emperor Crows appears to be based off the Three-Legged Crow of East Asian mythology, otherwise known as the Sun Crow, giving credence to its ability of creating miniature suns.
  • Crow King has been many times incorrectly translated in manga, often being named "Bird King". However, this is simply not correct, as its name (烏王 ) literally means Crow King).
