The Hannya Panda (般若パンダ) is a gigantic panda-like beast with a high Capture level of 80.
It has two large fangs from its mouth, and two horns jutting out from its shoulders which can also be used for attacking. Oddly enough, it also has an image of a face on its belly that changes to reflect the Hannya Panda's mood, such as excitement, anger, pain and defeat.
The Hannya Panda is a vicious beast with a lust for battle. It is almost always seen with a foreboding and intimidating look and when angered, it becomes a being of pure fury. Coco also described the Hannya Panda as an incredibly voracious omnivore, capable of stripping a mountain of all animals and vegetation in the span of half a day.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
The Hannya Panda is an incredibly powerful physical fighter, with strength almost comparable to Toriko's during their first encounter. Just one attack from it is devastating and it can deal out deadly punches swiftly. To add to its physical strength it is also an intelligent fighter that can read its opponents attacks with ease and even figure out methods to avoid or endure them. It is also noted to be remarkably agile for its girth, easily dodging a Leg Fork from Toriko by back flipping away.
The meat of the Hannya Panda is fine dish when prepared right and steaming it is a good way to bring out its flavor. If its meat is combined with lettuce and wrapped in large rice wrappers, it can be made into a delicious Spring Roll which can be eaten with a special soy sauce and mayonnaise to enhance the flavor if one desires.
Meteor Garlic ArcEdit
It is first seen during Coco and Livebearer's Food Concentration card game. Coco matches it and Toriko goes to fight it. The Hannya Panda is shown to be a powerful and intelligent beast as it is able to smash the floor with its attacks, and avoid the brunt of Toriko's 18-Hit Nail Punch by moving with the force of the attack.
After a difficult fight, Toriko manages to defeat it with a 36-Hit Twin Nail Punch, using his intuition to prevent the Hannya Panda from predicting his attacks. Komatsu cooks the ingredient by steaming it so that the ingredient wouldn't lose its vitamin B1 and other high nutrient content so to help heal Toriko afterwards by relieving fatigue. The Hannya Panda is the biggest hit in Livebearer's Gourmet Tasting Card Deck: worth a massive 250 points. As the Hannya Panda is also one of the two Joker Ingredients (due to the beast's dangerous level of skill), Coco takes advantage and invokes it to trade Summer Whiskey for Garlic Crab as part of his plan to defeat Livebearer.
In the video game series, the Hannya Panda is shown to have a variety of different subspecies:
- Okage Dog (おかめワンコ Okame Wanko): In Toriko: Gourmet Monsters and Toriko: Ultimate Survival.
