|[v · t · e]|
Ling Chun (零春 (れいしゅん) Reishun), the Chinese Emperor (中華の皇帝 Chūka no Kōtei), is a world-class chinese food chef and the owner chef of restaurant "Ling", and his skills as a chef are so great that he is ranked as the 18th greatest chef in the world on the IGO's Top 100 Chef Rankings.
Like his epithet suggests, Ling Chun wears a traditional Chinese wardrobe filled with intricately designed patterns and threads woven through both his hat and his gown. He has long black hair that fall smoothly down his back with a bang-of hair that shoots down the center of his face sticking out from underneath his hat.
Not much is known about Ling Chun, though he seems to have a liking towards traditional oriental clothing.
Ling Chun makes his appearance in the Cooking Stadium as the 11th entry, following Darin. He is able to pass the three preliminary events: Triathlon Cooking, Scale Death Cooking, and Entire Island Cooking. In the Championship Cooking, his opponent is Chiru.
When the Gourmet Corp. invades the Cooking Festival, Ling Chun is one of the many chefs that joins together and repels the invaders. Later, when the Nitros appear, he is defeated by Zaragira and thrown in the Cage Beast. Alongside his captured comrades in the Gourmet Corp.'s Gourmet World HQ, Ling Chun refuses the request to serve food to Midora.
