Routines are actions centered around mental images and physical movement. The higher the concentration, energy, and experience a person has with routines then the less physical movement is required to perform the routine. The lowest level of a routine requires a lot of movements and time but at its highest level it is an entirely mental action.


  • Preshot Routine (プリショットルーティーン, Purishotto Rūtīn): A technique normally used in golf where one creates a mental image of success to increase concentration and accuracy. Aimaru taught it to Takimaru. Like his disciple, he can increase his own concentration to the point that he doesn't even flinch when stabbed in a vital organ. The drawback is that it contains several movements which takes time to perform, leaving him vulnerable.

  • Conduct of the King - Ultimate Routine (王の所作アルティメットルーティーン, Ō no Shosa: Arutimetto Rutin): The "supreme" routine taught to Toriko by Aimaru. By imagining a scenario or event strongly enough, a person is able to cause an impression of that scenario or event that it actually occurs, whether that be imagining stress and forming an ulcer or imagining an attack succeeding and having it actually succeed. To fully utilize the effects of the technique it requires an astonishing level of concentration and self-confidence, and depending on the difficulty of the desired impression the energy required can be enormous.[1]


Anime and Manga DifferencesEdit

  • The scene in the manga where Aimaru creates an ulcer with his routine and coughs up blood is removed from the anime due to its heavy censorship.
