Maymay (メイメイ Meimei) is one of the Five 10-Shell Cooks of Blue Grill and manager of Turtle Village.


Maymay's color scheme.

Important Notice: For convenience purposes in this article, Maymay will be referred to as a male until there's a confirmation on his/her gender. This does not mean we consider him a male, it is just done to improve the flow of the article. Maymay's gender can be discussed in the comment section below. - Toriko Wiki Staff

Maymay's appearance is mostly obscured as his face is concealed by what seems to be a large bib or bandana and his body is covered in a large white robe with shoulder pads; because of this it is impossible to tell what Maymay's race and gender is. On his head he wears a large chef's hat that covers his puffy dark hair which pokes out of his has as two large hair buns. On his robe he has several bottles containing unknown liquids. Because his face is covered by his bandana and hat, it is unknown if he wears a mask like his fellow chefs, although he appears to have thin, vertically-shaped eyes.

Powers and Abilities[]

As a member of the Five 10-Shell Cooks, Maymay possesses extraordinary cooking skills likely rivaling those of the Top 100 Chefs in the Human World. Due to his age, he has thousands of years of experience in cooking. Like the other Five 10-Shell Cooks, he can hear the voices of Food Spirits. Being a Food Spirit himself, Maymay cannot normally be seen or interacted with by the living and vice versa. He is also capable of possessing the bodies of weaker beings and making them his own, something which he has been doing for over 3000 years.

Gourmet Cells[]

Maymay was born with Gourmet Cells since he is a descendant of those humans captured by the Nitro and injected with Gourmet Cells,[1] and like the other citizens of Blue Grill, his Appetite Demon is Don Slime, until the demon is resurrected in Asarudy.[2]

Of Acacia's Full Course, he has eaten AIR,[3] ANOTHER and NEWS,[4] and EARTH.[5]

*Warp Kitchen (ワープキッチン Wāpukitchin): Maymay produces a glowing orb between his hands, and then spreads them to his sides to enlarge it, forming a space to envelop the target. Within this space is a dimension in which times flows much more slowly than on the outside, to the point it seems to have stopped. With this technique, he gave Kuriboh time to craft pieces of Golden Cookware, and he claimed that his is of a much higher level than Asarudy's.[6] According to Joie, this altered spacetime is a memory of the Gourmet Cells, existing in order to cook ingredients that would otherwise require thousands of years to prepare.[7]



After the arrival of the Human World chefs in Blue Grill, the Five 10-Shell Cooks became aware of their presence and had Mari set up a match between them in Grill Stadium to see if they were truly as skilled as they claimed and if they could survive in the Back Channel.[8] He won his match against Damala Sky XIII.[9]

He and the remaining Ten-Shell Five expand Yun's Back Channel as the group travels to pick up the Four Heavenly Kings and Acacia's Full Course. Because of the exhaustion from maintaining the Back Channel, they are fed some of EARTH, a source of great energy and nutrients. After the group secures ATOM, the Ten-Shell Five and Chinchin and Chiyo take a majority of the Full Course items and travel to the Human World.[5]
