Tylan (タイラン Tairan), the Poison Cooking Specialist (毒料理専門 Doku Ryōri Senmon), is without peer when it comes to his handling of poisons and poisonous ingredients. Because of this he is 19th in the World Gourmet Chef Rankings, making him one of the greatest chefs in the world. Out of the top thirty Gourmet Chefs, Tylan and Livebearer are the only two to come from non-IGO nations. He is the manager of the poison cuisine specialist shop Nest of Poison.


Tylan is a tall dark-skinned man whose face has several scars, some stubble and he appears to have black hair. His attire consists of a purple-colored chef's uniform with a tall toque with a black diamond-shaped emblem on it.

Powers and Abilities[]

Tylan's Poison Cooking skills.

Tylan is ranked 19th from the World Ranking. Like some of the other high ranking chefs he is strong enough to be difficult to be captured by the Gourmet Corp.. Later proven as he battles against them for a while without damages to him.

Chef Skills[]

Being a master of Poison Cooking, he has unparalleled skill when it comes to preparing and detoxifying poisons and poisonous ingredients and can even delay the progress of venom. His knowledge in the field is vast and he is considered a true genius. A testament of his great skill is that he knows the method to delay the effects of Green Rain, a Gourmet World-level weather condition that can kill people in an hour through massages. He is also able to make a Puffer Whale's poison sack edible. The greatest testament to his skill is the successful preparation of ATOM, which is one of the most difficult dishes after ANOTHER and GOD.[1]

Meteor Garlic Arc[]

The Gourmet Corp. had been planning to kidnap as many of top 100 chefs as possible for use in their plan to invade the Gourmet World, however they realized that it would be more difficult to kidnap the higher-ranking chefs such as Tylan, as he and the other chefs listed alongside him are individuals of great strength unlike the lowest ranked of the top 100.

Four Beast Arc[]

When it is clear that developing an antidote to the Four Beast's Green Rain is going to be a problem, Livebearer makes a call to Tylan before his arrival at the Gourmet Towers' knife building to help with the antidote. Once he arrives he overhears Komatsu's plan to try and find a way to make enough antidotes for the entirety of poisoned victims. Tylan volunteers to stall the Green Rain's poison while Komatsu develops a method to make the antidote easier to prepare in less time.

Cooking Festival Arc[]

Tylan enters 16th in the stage of the Cooking Festival, after Mami. Later in the second bicycle part of the first event, Triathlon Cooking, he, like many other chefs, chooses the dangerous but short path. There he is able to show his strength by defeating Sand Hamsters with his Detox Knife technique. He is able to pass the three preliminary events: Triathlon Cooking, Scale Death Cooking, and Entire Island Cooking. At the Championship Cooking, his opponent is Mami.[3]

When the battle with the Gourmet Corp. ensues, he watches in horror at Livebearer's mutilation. Some minutes later he sides with Chiru and two Saiseiya against Scum Beasts able to use Food Pressure.

AIR Arc[]

A year and a half later, he is one of the many people who goes to the World Kitchen to say their goodbyes to the Four Heavenly Kings and Komatsu before they set off to Gourmet World, and he and his fellow chefs promise to cook all the ingredients that they send.

PAIR Arc[]

When the delivery of Gourmet World ingredients finally comes into the Human World, Tylan joins up with many of the Human World's skilled personnel who journey to Gourmet World in order to assist the Heavenly Kings. When everyone arrives in Area 8's Hex Food World, they are told by the Daruma Hermit that the Heavenly Kings have already departed from the Area 8 and headed to Area 7, much to their disappointment. However the Daruma Hermit offers them their last remaining Safety Monster to help take the group to Area 7, the Crabbus.


While traveling through Area 3, Tylan and Coco notice the sky darken and giant feathers fall as the Crow King passes over them.[4] After capturing and preparing the drink, Tylan and Coco encounter the rest of the group. With ANOTHER, NEWS, EARTH, and ATOM assembled, they split up the dishes and the group, with Tylan returning to the Human World.[5]

  • His voice actor also voices Damala Sky XIII and Akimaru.
  • In a special "Dream Combo" poll held for Volume 29.5 in which fans could vote for their favorite current or potential hunter/chef combo, Tylan and Coco were selected as a popular potential combo by the author who placed the combo as a number 1 ranker in compatibility, likely due to their shared affinity for poisons.
