{{Toriko info box}} ''This is article is about the character, for other uses, see [[Toriko (Disambiguation)]].'' '''Toriko '''(<span style="font-size:12px;text-align:left;">トリコ ''Toriko'')</span> is the main protagonist of the [[manga]] and [[anime]] series, ''Toriko''. He is a [[Bishoku-ya|Bishokuya]] with an abnormally large appetite (as a food serving for 500 people could only get him 1/10 full). He is known as one of the "[[Four Heavenly Kings]]" (四天王, ''shitennou''), and his nickname is "The Glutton". He is an incredibly skilled [[Bishokuya]], having discovered roughly 2% of the approximately 300,000 varieties of known [[Ingredients|ingredients]] worldwide, which is around 6000 varieties. He is also the adoptive father figure of a new born [[Battle Wolf]] pup named [[Terry Cloth]] and is the only human known to have ever tamed a Battle Wolf. He is currently seeking the fabled holy ingredient from [[Acacia]]'s [[Full Course Menu]], [[GOD]], which is said to be the greatest main dish in the world and hopes to add it to his own Full Course Menu, despite that this ingredient is also being sought after by the brutal criminal organization, the [[Bishokukai]] and many other powerful figures. He is currently in a [[Combo]] with [[Komatsu]]. While a powerful warrior in his own right, Toriko's recent endeavors have been mainly focused on entering the vicious [[Gourmet World]] and has been doing all in his power to train to the max in order to enter and survive in its harsh environment, he has also learned of the existence of many powerful warriors already capable of entering it and is doing all he can to surpass them in hopes of reaching the great ingredient GOD that all of them enter Gourmet World to seek before it falls into the wrong hands, for if such an event were to occur the results would be catastrophic. ==Personality== Toriko has a personallity of rugged manliness, eating heavily, drinking, showing off, and displaying a wild sense of enthusiasm only towards what interest him and rarely towards what interest others. Many define him as a glutton. He also has an obsession with perfection when it comes to the food he serves.[[File:Vlcsnap-2012-07-04-04h11m56s208.png|thumb|left|250px]] Despite having a huge appetite and massive power, Toriko makes it a rule not to indiscriminately kill and eat any animal; he only kills animals that he decides to eat and will often opt to use [[Knocking]], [[Intimidation]] or other means of repelling animals he does not intend on eating. He has a keen sense of smell (better then a police dog) and a high level of knowledge about many different species of life, their behavior, and habitats. Toriko believes that no species of life, regardless of its existence, should be brought to extinction, as shown when he takes only a single [[Rainbow Fruit]] from the [[8th Biotope|8th Biotope's]] garden so as to not endanger the [[Troll Kong]]s way of life, as well as his disapproval of [[Zebra]]'s behavior of hunting multiple species to extinction. His general behavior with other people is friendly and charismatic. Yet at the same time, in the heat of battle, he is capable of displaying a wild, animal-like aggression to the point of manifesting his killing intent as an illusionary [http://www.sarudama.com/japanese_folklore/hannya_-.shtml Hannya]-like demon. He is extremely brave and rarely shows any signs of fear. Toriko's dream is to create the perfect [[Full Course Menu]] with only the best ingredients comprising it. His skills as a [[Bishokuya]] have helped him capture many high-class ingredients but he has yet to find (and taste) enough ingredients he can deem worthy enough to be placed in and complete his Full Course Menu, stating that there are still many ingredients in the world that he has yet to taste. He intends to find [[GOD]], the greatest ingredient of the world, and is reserving a place for it in his menu as the main dish. Despite being a hunter, Toriko is a caring, compassionate person. He is quite protective of his two main partners, [[Komatsu]], and [[Terry Cloth|Terry]]. He is very particular about the foods in his Full Course Menu, wanting it to be the best, he picks only the rarest, most delicious foods he discovers to serve in his meal. He also puts much faith in his partners, believing that Terry can surpass his own strength when she needs to. He also puts his faith in Komatsu's cooking abilities, allowing Komatsu to have the last drop of the [[Century Soup]], believing that Komatsu will the be able to replicate the recipe. After forming a [[Combo]] with Komatsu, Toriko has decided to pick those ingredients for his Full Course Menu that accept both him and his partner. Toriko also seems to enjoy testing his strength, such as when he destroyed a gigantic boulder to test the strength of his '''Nail Punch''' and when he got excited at the idea of fighting [[Tommyrod]], a [[Bishokukai]] [[Chef|Sous Chef]], as it was his first opportunity to fight a Sous Chef who would use his full strength. He has also recently stated the desire to fight the beast that possesses the [[Capture Level]] of 100. ==Full Course Menu== Toriko seeks to create the ultimate Full Course Menu and only chooses what he considers to be the best of the best ingredients and is always careful about what foods he'll add to his menu. His desired Main Dish is Gourmet God Acacia's Main Dish, the ultimate ingredient in the world, one that is sought after by the most powerful men in the world. {{Template:FullCourseMenu |Name = Toriko's Full Course Menu |Hors d'Oeuvre = [[BB Corn]] |Hors d'Oeuvre CP = 35 |Hors d'OeuvreStatus = Decided |Soup = [[Century Soup]] |Soup CP = 60 |SoupStatus = Decided |Fish DishStatus = Undecided |Meat DishStatus = Undecided |Main Course = [[GOD]] (yet to acquire) |Main Course CP = Unknown |Main CourseStatus = Decided |SaladStatus = Undecided |Dessert = [[Rainbow Fruit]] |Dessert CP = 12 |DessertStatus = Decided |DrinkStatus = Undecided}} ==Appearances in Other Media== ===''Toriko Oneshot 2002''=== ===''Toriko Oneshot 2007''=== ===''Toriko Jump Special''=== The ''[[Toriko Jump Super Anime Tour Special 2009|Toriko Jump Special]]'' was an OVA animated for ''[[Shonen Jump]]'s'' 2009 anime tour and it was the first time Toriko was seen in an animated format. The OVA is an animated adaptation of the [[Galala Gator Arc]] which stays mostly faithful to the manga until the near end where the fight between Toriko and the [[Galala Gator]] is extended and it becomes more graphic and violent, and ending with Toriko using a Nail Punch on the Galala Gator, blowing it to bloody bits. ===''Toriko 3D Movie''=== In Toriko's first film ''[[Toriko 3D Movie: Kaimaku!

When he is fighting creatures, he would never feel an emotion like anger. Generally, Toriko only feels gratitude toward his food." **Toriko's clothes bear a striking resemblance to those worn by [http://www.dragonballencyclopedia.com/wiki/Son_Goku Son Goku], the main protagonist of the [http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Ball_(franchise) Dragon Ball] franchise and [http://hokuto.wikia.com/wiki/Kenshiro Kenshiro] from [http://hokuto.wikia.com/wiki/Hokuto_no_Ken Fist of the North Star] franchise.

'''Kamui''' is a powerful dōjutsu which originates from the [[Mangekyō Sharingan]] of [[Obito Uchiha]]. A unique and specialised form of [[space–time ninjutsu]], it allows the user to achieve two very distinct, yet closely associated feats – ''teleportation'' and "''intangibility''".
  +
  +
== Overview ==
  +
[[File:Madara's world.png|thumb|left|The other dimension.]]
  +
Kamui allows the user to transfer anything to [[Other Dimension|another dimension]]. Once a target is sent to this dimension it is unable to escape.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 502, page 10</ref> This technique is also able to make the user "intangible" by transporting portions of his body to the same pocket dimension.<ref name="ch597">''Naruto'' chapter 597, pages 7-8</ref> Obito was able to use this technique the moment he awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 605, pages 6-7, 10</ref> while Kakashi, who awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan at the same moment as Obito, didn't have access to it until sometime after [[Sasuke Uchiha]]'s defection and made first use of it in the series during his first encounter with [[Deidara]].
  +
  +
[[Kakashi Hatake]] likens the characteristics of the technique to those of [[Minato Namikaze]]'s [[Flying Thunder God Technique]], but notes that it seems to be much more versatile since it requires neither a seal nor a summoning tattoo to be performed.<ref name="ch395">''Naruto'' chapter 395, page 10</ref> The side of the eye using the technique determines the specific property of it.
  +
  +
== Teleportation ==
  +
[[File:SpaceTimeMigration.png|thumb|Obito using Kamui to teleport.]]
  +
Each eye uses Kamui to teleport to the other dimension, though how this is done depends on the eye. By creating a swirling, distortion centered on the eye, the user is able to open a void into the other dimension. This technique's effect acts as an attractive force, both visibly drawing the target inwards and distorting their form until they disappear, although physical contact is required to absorb a target. After absorbing targets through this process, Obito or Kakashi is able to eject them at any time of their choosing with varying degrees of force. In doing so, Obito is able to attack using weapons of gigantic proportions and/or quantities with relative ease and at a moment's notice, giving opponents little opportunity to react accordingly.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 598, pages 4-6, 9-12</ref>
  +
  +
[[File:Tobi using shuriken.PNG|thumb|left|Obito ejects multiple shuriken from a separate dimension.]]
  +
Another unique trait of Kamui is that it allows the user to teleport themselves to any location they desire, including the other dimension. When using Kamui to teleport themselves, whatever the user is touching will be warped along with them and the user's chakra becomes untraceable.<ref name="ch395"/> By his own admission, Obito is capable of finding anyone and teleporting to their location regardless of where they are.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 453, page 3</ref> Despite not always being present, Obito can keep his targets under [[Genjutsu: Sharingan|genjutsu]] while they are confined inside this pocket dimension and thus, keep them incapacitated for extended durations.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 520, page 8</ref>

{{-}}
  +
  +
=== Left Eye ===
  +
[[File:Kamui1.PNG|thumb|Kakashi using the Teleporting Barrier.]]
  +
The left eye's primary use of Kamui is based on line of sight and, as such, does not require physical contact to warp a target into the other dimension. By focusing to create a barrier space and concentrating on the target within, Kamui will distort space and the target will be drawn into the other dimension. When Kakashi first used this technique, it required great concentration and was difficult to aim, dragging in only Deidara's arm when he aimed for his head. By the [[Invasion of Pain]], Kakashi was able to use Kamui to stop a speeding nail from penetrating his head and later, during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], could quickly warp a target as large as [[Gyūki]], the Eight-Tails. He was also able to use Kamui to teleport out of the other dimension as well as eject Gyūki from it.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 610, page 17</ref>
  +
  +
=== Right Eye ===
  +
[[File:Tobi Chains.png|thumb|left|Minato passing through Obito.]]
  +
The unique trait of this eye is the ability of intangibility. When activated, any part of Obito's body that overlaps with a solid object is seamlessly warped to the other dimension, making it appear as though he is phasing through them. Using this ability, Obito can dodge most attacks, and by overlapping his entire body into large objects, he can not only conceal himself from view, but erase all traces of his chakra. Obito is also able to enter and travel through the ground using this ability, a characteristic he often exploits to ambush his opponents from below.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 475, pages 2-3</ref> Though he is unable to establish any physical contact while being intangible, Obito can still use [[Demonic Statue Chains|chakra chains]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 567, page 7</ref> He also seemingly possesses the capability to extend this intangibility to whatever he's touching at the moment of activation,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 467, page 5</ref> as long as he is able to maintain some form of contact with at least a part of the desired item or person.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 595, page 15</ref>
  +
  +
== Drawbacks ==
  +
Since this technique is shared by two different users of the same pair of eyes, both parties can use their own technique to counter the effectiveness of the other, thus making it useless to use against one another directly.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 487, page 4</ref> Obito can extend this negation to targets outside of his own body, as he negated Kakashi's attempt to decapitate the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]]'s head.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 595, pages 12-13</ref> Similarly, Kakashi was able to escape Obito's attempt to trap him in the other dimension.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 608, page 3-8</ref>
  +
  +
=== Left Eye ===
  +
The Mangekyō Sharingan is a dōjutsu that, with continuous usage, burdens the user with the loss of their eyesight. Since this is the source of Kamui, using it in rapid succession puts Kakashi's body at risk as well. As his Sharingan was transplanted, usage of this technique poses an even greater risk to Kakashi. Similar to [[Amaterasu]], repeated use of the technique puts a great deal of strain on the user, causing his left eye to bleed if overused.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 598, page 12</ref>
  +
  +
Kakashi was originally only able to use this technique up to at least three times in a given day, even when starting at full strength. At first Kakashi's aim and control over the size of the barrier was imperfect. Over time his aim and control improved, as he was able to accurately warp away small and fast moving objects, such as a nail.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 424, page 17</ref> Kakashi is even able to consecutively warp away two [[Susanoo Bow|fast-moving arrows]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 484, page 6</ref> Later, he became able to use this technique several more times in a single day.

  +
In Obito's case, the primary weakness of this technique is that both aspects cannot be used concurrently, as he must become and remain tangible in order to transport himself or others, providing a small opportunity in which he is unable to pass through objects and thus, is vulnerable to injury. This deficiency means that he must also materialise when ejecting stored items as well, presenting the same vulnerability.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 598, page 9</ref> According to [[Konan]], Obito can only maintain his intangibility for approximately five consecutive minutes at a time, after which he is presumably rendered completely solid for a duration. She also reveals that the time it takes him to absorb something is proportional to its mass, and that it takes longer to absorb himself than another person or object.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 510, pages 2-3</ref>
  +
  +
Additionally, due to the nature of Obito's intangibility, the sections of his body residing in the [[other dimension]] can still interact normally with other objects that are also contained within this dimension, meaning they can be damaged by such items. As this technique originates from [[Obito Uchiha]]'s Sharingan, of which both Kakashi and Obito possess one of, the two share the same dimension when teleporting objects, a characteristic that Kakashi exploited to injure Obito on multiple occasions during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 597, pages 4-12</ref>
  +

Unlike Kakashi or any Mangekyō Sharingan users, Obito's extensively continuous usage of the Kamui technique does not seem to tire him at the very least, nor even cause his eyesight to deteriorate.

Users

Kamui is a powerful dōjutsu which originates from the Mangekyō Sharingan of Obito Uchiha. A unique and specialised form of space–time ninjutsu, it allows the user to achieve two very distinct, yet closely associated feats – teleportation and "intangibility".

Overview

Madara's world

The other dimension.

Kamui allows the user to transfer anything to another dimension. Once a target is sent to this dimension it is unable to escape.[3] This technique is also able to make the user "intangible" by transporting portions of his body to the same pocket dimension.[4] Obito was able to use this technique the moment he awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan,[5] while Kakashi, who awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan at the same moment as Obito, didn't have access to it until sometime after Sasuke Uchiha's defection and made first use of it in the series during his first encounter with Deidara.

Kakashi Hatake likens the characteristics of the technique to those of Minato Namikaze's Flying Thunder God Technique, but notes that it seems to be much more versatile since it requires neither a seal nor a summoning tattoo to be performed.[6] The side of the eye using the technique determines the specific property of it.

Teleportation

SpaceTimeMigration

Obito using Kamui to teleport.

Each eye uses Kamui to teleport to the other dimension, though how this is done depends on the eye. By creating a swirling, distortion centered on the eye, the user is able to open a void into the other dimension. This technique's effect acts as an attractive force, both visibly drawing the target inwards and distorting their form until they disappear, although physical contact is required to absorb a target. After absorbing targets through this process, Obito or Kakashi is able to eject them at any time of their choosing with varying degrees of force. In doing so, Obito is able to attack using weapons of gigantic proportions and/or quantities with relative ease and at a moment's notice, giving opponents little opportunity to react accordingly.[7]

Another unique trait of Kamui is that it allows the user to teleport themselves to any location they desire, including the other dimension. When using Kamui to teleport themselves, whatever the user is touching will be warped along with them and the user's chakra becomes untraceable.[6] By his own admission, Obito is capable of finding anyone and teleporting to their location regardless of where they are.[8] Despite not always being present, Obito can keep his targets under genjutsu while they are confined inside this pocket dimension and thus, keep them incapacitated for extended durations.[9]

Left Eye

Kakashi using the Teleporting Barrier.

The left eye's primary use of Kamui is based on line of sight and, as such, does not require physical contact to warp a target into the other dimension. By focusing to create a barrier space and concentrating on the target within, Kamui will distort space and the target will be drawn into the other dimension. When Kakashi first used this technique, it required great concentration and was difficult to aim, dragging in only Deidara's arm when he aimed for his head. By the Invasion of Pain, Kakashi was able to use Kamui to stop a speeding nail from penetrating his head and later, during the Fourth Shinobi World War, could quickly warp a target as large as Gyūki, the Eight-Tails. He was also able to use Kamui to teleport out of the other dimension as well as eject Gyūki from it.[10]

Right Eye

Tobi Chains

Minato passing through Obito.

The unique trait of this eye is the ability of intangibility. When activated, any part of Obito's body that overlaps with a solid object is seamlessly warped to the other dimension, making it appear as though he is phasing through them. Using this ability, Obito can dodge most attacks, and by overlapping his entire body into large objects, he can not only conceal himself from view, but erase all traces of his chakra. Obito is also able to enter and travel through the ground using this ability, a characteristic he often exploits to ambush his opponents from below.[11] Though he is unable to establish any physical contact while being intangible, Obito can still use chakra chains.[12] He also seemingly possesses the capability to extend this intangibility to whatever he's touching at the moment of activation,[13] as long as he is able to maintain some form of contact with at least a part of the desired item or person.[14]

Drawbacks

Since this technique is shared by two different users of the same pair of eyes, both parties can use their own technique to counter the effectiveness of the other, thus making it useless to use against one another directly.[15] Obito can extend this negation to targets outside of his own body, as he negated Kakashi's attempt to decapitate the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path's head.[16] Similarly, Kakashi was able to escape Obito's attempt to trap him in the other dimension.[17]

Left Eye

The Mangekyō Sharingan is a dōjutsu that, with continuous usage, burdens the user with the loss of their eyesight. Since this is the source of Kamui, using it in rapid succession puts Kakashi's body at risk as well. As his Sharingan was transplanted, usage of this technique poses an even greater risk to Kakashi. Similar to Amaterasu, repeated use of the technique puts a great deal of strain on the user, causing his left eye to bleed if overused.[18]

Kakashi was originally only able to use this technique up to at least three times in a given day, even when starting at full strength. At first Kakashi's aim and control over the size of the barrier was imperfect. Over time his aim and control improved, as he was able to accurately warp away small and fast moving objects, such as a nail.[19] Kakashi is even able to consecutively warp away two fast-moving arrows.[20] Later, he became able to use this technique several more times in a single day.

In Obito's case, the primary weakness of this technique is that both aspects cannot be used concurrently, as he must become and remain tangible in order to transport himself or others, providing a small opportunity in which he is unable to pass through objects and thus, is vulnerable to injury. This deficiency means that he must also materialise when ejecting stored items as well, presenting the same vulnerability.[21] According to Konan, Obito can only maintain his intangibility for approximately five consecutive minutes at a time, after which he is presumably rendered completely solid for a duration. She also reveals that the time it takes him to absorb something is proportional to its mass, and that it takes longer to absorb himself than another person or object.[22]

Additionally, due to the nature of Obito's intangibility, the sections of his body residing in the other dimension can still interact normally with other objects that are also contained within this dimension, meaning they can be damaged by such items. As this technique originates from Obito Uchiha's Sharingan, of which both Kakashi and Obito possess one of, the two share the same dimension when teleporting objects, a characteristic that Kakashi exploited to injure Obito on multiple occasions during the Fourth Shinobi World War.[23]

Unlike Kakashi or any Mangekyō Sharingan users, Obito's extensively continuous usage of the Kamui technique does not seem to tire him at the very least, nor even cause his eyesight to deteriorate.

Influence

Kamui is the word for a divine being in Ainu mythology, although it is almost never written with kanji in modern times. In a more general Japanese context, Kamui refers to the might and majesty of the gods, particularly the Shintō Kami.

Trivia

  • The Third Databook seems to hint that other Mangekyō Sharingan users can access the technique through sheer training of the eye, though this is unconfirmed.[1]
