This thread is to discuss anything and everything about gourmet cells!
So far only a number of characters have been revealed to have gourmet cells. There has always been speculation as to who else has the cells too - do all the strong characters, all those who are able to survive the harsh conditions of the gourmet world, have them? Or are they intrinsically "superhuman"?
I think the super strong fighters who show inhuman power or fight outside the limitations of humans have Gourmet cells. To me that's the 4HK, all the Bushokukai Chefs we've seen fight so far and guys like IGO head Mansam and Rin. Not sure if I forgot anyone.... maybe I should make a list.
Yeah, I bet that everyone who can do anything superhuman has the cells, So people like zonge, komatsu, and that gourmet mafia guy from ice hell most certainly don't have them, so their growth is very slow and will be limited to a certain human peak, and most importantly, eating good food wont increase their strength, and they will not naturally adapt to hostile environments. (Komatsu really needs to get some good cells, or he surely wont be able to get into the gourmet world).
I'm not sure if Komatsu will obtain any Gourmet Cells. So far he's missing out on the adaptations Toriko is currently undergoing. Either the author comes up with some weird transfusion process (e.g. Toriko transfers some of his cells to Komatsu) or the author brings up some funky equipment for Komatsu to bring to the Gourmet World. But Komatsu enduring, let alone surviving, the Gourmet World at this point is laughable.
What I've been thinking for a while is what would happen if the nitros obtained Gourmet Cells... It woul be cool! They seem inteligent and were the ones that made Acacia realize the existence of God, they have some level of knowledge aboute culinary and are kidnapping chefs. If in a future arc about the kidnapping of chefs its revealed they now are stronger and more knowledgeble, i wouldn't be surprised.
