Meeko gives off a very intimidating presence and appears ferocious, but she was actually kind and friendly to all who did not provoke her and she especially loved her beloved master Yocchi and he in turn cared for her, suspecting her to be his late wife reborn, he gave her all the attention he failed to give Miko. Much like Miko, she cared for Yocchi and was gentle, placid, and unexcitable like most Chicken Tigers were often reported to be, and always watched over Yocchi's home and she had a strange and close attachment to the patch of land where Miko was buried and even laid her egg there once Yocchi was buried with Miko.



Meeko meeting Yocchi.

Meeko was originally found by Yocchi when she was just a hatchling near the ground where his late wife was buried. He raised and took care of her, and named her after his wife Miko who passed away shortly before he found Meeko on her grave site. Yocchi believed Meeko may have been Miko reborn and swore to give her all the attention and time he failed to give to his late wife.

Toriko's Break Arc[]

When he was close to death, Yocchi requested of his new friends, Toriko and Komatsu, to take care of Meeko in his absence as she would get lonely without company. Shortly after her beloved master's passing, her egg hatched into a newborn Chicken Tiger who was born on top of both Miko and Yocchi's new grave; this made Toriko and Komatsu wonder if the chick was Yocchi reborn, and if so both Yocchi and Miko were finally reunited.

AIR Arc[]

A year and a half later, Meeko is among the many present at the World Kitchen who bid farewell to the Four Heavenly Kings and Komatsu before they set out to Gourmet World.
