Eruu (エルー, Erū) is the personal steed of Takimaru and he rides it almost everywhere, even on to places where a horse would be of little use, such as aboard a ship.
It is a very tall white Mechinisu Horse wearing a simple saddle and a large gold necklace around its neck with a crescent-shaped gold pendant hanging from it.
In its second appearance in the anime, it does not wear the necklace and the crescent-shaped pendant appears to be grafted onto its chest.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
As it stands, it appears to be a normal riding horse. However the games expand on Eruu's abilities, indicating that it has excellent recovery abilities and high speed. It is also stated that it has a "water attribute".
Century Soup ArcEdit
Takimaru rode Eruu to Gourmet Town in order to find a hunting job that would pay high enough for him to afford a cure for Aimaru. Once he and a group of other Gourmet Hunters were hired by Colonel Mokkoi, they all boarded his ship and set sail to Ice Hell to find the Century Soup. Takimaru even brought Eruu with him aboard the giant ice breaker barge, however he could not bring it with him on to Ice Hell when they arrived as there were no Lighter Suits designed for horses.It is unknown what became of Eruu after Colonel Mokkoi abandoned Takimaru and the rest of the gang in Ice Hell.
Bubble Fruit ArcEdit
Appearances in Other MediaEdit
Toriko: Gourmet MonstersEdit
Eruu makes an unexpected appearance in the 3DS game Toriko: Gourmet Monsters, as one of the many tamable beasts in the game. It can be acquired from Takimaru. Eruu is a strong animal with impressive recovery.
In the game, it appears to have somehow reunited with Takimaru after the events in Ice Hell as he is seen with him when Takimaru entered it in the Gourmet Royale battle. After Toriko meets with Takimaru, Eruu can be used in battle.
Anime and Manga DifferencesEdit
Eruu's name and species name is never stated anywhere in the manga and is only mentioned in the game Toriko: Gourmet Monsters. Whether the names are canon or not remains unclear.
- In a silhouette showing the Gourmet Knights, they are all shown riding horses, implying that a horse may be their preferred traveling beast as it is a simple yet strong creature that may suit their simplicity doctrine.
- In its Toriko: Gourmet Monsters entry, it is said to have a "water attribute", implying that it has an aquatic nature or is at least a very capable swimmer.
- This may explain how Eruu escaped Colonel Mokkoi's ship.
