Yuuji (ゆうじ Yūji), also known as the Hormone Master (ホルモンの達人 Horumon no Tatsujin), is the prestigious head chef and owner of the famous eight-star Hormone Grill restaurant Mogura located in Gourmet Alley of downtown Gourmet Town, and he currently holds the rank of number 16 on the IGO Chef Ranking, making him one of the greatest chefs recognized by the IGO.

He is one of Melk the Second's many customers and his knife is of the finest quality thanks to her.


Yuuji is a thin looking pale-skinned man with somewhat rectangular and sharp facial features, small round eyes with eyelashes and a pointy nose. He also has black hair which he keeps in a flattop hairstyle, a thin black mustache and a very small beard. He mainly wears a white shirt along with a white headband tied around his head.

Powers and Abilities[]

Yuuji's Kitchen Knife.

Being one of the best chefs in the world, Yuuji is a culinary master with amazing skill, but his primary ability lies in his unique Infinite Hormone Grilling cooking style, which allows him to manipulate hormones to further improve the taste and quality of food, as such he is dubbed the "Hormone Master".

The knife he uses in his cooking is of very high quality and has a very peculiar shape reminiscent of a hook or a scythe.


Melk Stardust Arc[]

Yuuji is first mentioned by Melk the Second when Komatsu asks about one of her knives, to which she replies that it belongs to Yuuji, a statement which greatly amazes Komatsu.

Cooking Fest Arc[]

Yuuji enters Cooking Stadium.

Yuuji makes a formal appearance at the Cooking Festival's chef tournament along with the other top 100 chefs where he is properly introduced by the MC upon entering the stage and is given a huge applause. 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 CM Goron.

When the battle against the Gourmet Corp. ensues, he is knocked out and captured by Gur.
