At the Gourmet Central Wholesale Marketplace, Toriko brought over a Shakurenodon he caught to be sold; which he got spotted by Tina who's keen to have an interview with him but got interrupted by Johannes . Toriko is then commissioned by the International Gourmet Organization to obtain the Rainbow Fruit, much to Komatsu's surprise. However the Rainbow Fruit trees were guarded by powerful Troll Kongs , with Capture Level of 9. Interested in the Rainbow Fruit, Toriko accepted the commission.

By blasting the wall with his Kugi Punch, Toriko entered the Biotope with Komatsu; news reporter Tina sneaks in to try and get footage of Toriko in action. Toriko encounters a scout Troll Kong and knocks him out with a Knocking Gun , since he does not kill what he does not intend to eat, however Toriko got licked and got it's scent. Toriko soon encounters a group of Troll Kongs guarding the Rainbow Fruit tree, with Komatsu clinging on his back, Toriko proceeds to perform knocking on them. As Toriko confronts them, the rain washes off the scent from the underling on his body, allowing him to use his intimidation against the others and gain dominance over its leader, the Silverback . Toriko takes a single fruit, though Tina is caught and her footage is confiscated.

Later on in Hotel Gourmet , Toriko had his meal and Rainbow Fruit jelly as a dessert served by Komatsu. Moved by the ever-changing flavors of the Rainbow Fruit, Toriko declares the Rainbow Fruit as the dessert for his full-course menu. Meanwhile, a shady figure made a premonition on Toriko's arrival.
