Chart last updated: Chapter 259
This is a chart I made in response to the happenings in the Cooking Festival arc. There were so many shifting alliances that it was hard for me to keep track, so I made a list…which turned into a chart…which was then made into a grid, made more beautiful, more extensive, etc. In short, it turned into a bigger project than I planned, but some have said it’s useful, so here it is! Please use it as you like, anywhere you like. The chart’s initial purpose was to show the new balance of power between the IGO, the Bishokukai and NEO, but it could also be used for different things, like remembering the names of all those chefs.
If you notice a mistake or think there’s a better way to organize something, please let me know in this thread. I may or may not agree, but I’m open to all suggestions since I know it can be improved! I’ll probably update this thread periodically as characters are confirmed alive, new characters appear, or further revelations occur.
Finally, about who appears on the chart: I decided to include only characters who 1) are relevant to the world’s power balance or 2) are important to the plot for some reason, like an association with an important character. That’s why Yun is on here but Zonge is not, for example. I did consider making it an ultimate character chart with everyone ever mentioned, lines connecting people, etc. but decided against it. Still, if that's something you'd like to see, let me know.
Red section: IGO employees
Blue section: Bishokukai members
Purple section: NEO members
Brown section: Other individuals and groups. Many of these people are allied with the IGO, but since they don’t work for the IGO, they’re listed here.
White box: Alive
Gray box: Status unknown
Black box: Dead
Yellow triangle: IGO Chef Ranking
Gray triangle: Former IGO Chef Ranking
Finally, I want to thank the Toriko Wiki, since they were my main source for the info in this chart! Also Hi wa Mata Noboru for their scans!

Very good chart, but isn't Kuriboh still IGO? Triple agent for Ichiryuu, etc.
Could you make it bigger if possible?
This is the only manga I read where there is such a huge cast of characters that we need to keep track of in order to find out who they're fighting for. That's what makes this chart great, we can really put it into perspective how each side is standing. I didn't really notice how many members were still with the bishokukai until I saw it, it seemed that they had been outright cleaned out by Neo but the jury is still out on Alfaro though. And who knows how effective Grin will be now. Actually take that back, they basically only have Star and Limon left because Alfaro is currently pulling a Coco since he's either dead, defected, or somehow managed to get away from the blue Nitro/Megarodras+Ramon. Jerry Boy got pretty messed up at the stadium, and the rest are not...useful.
And btw, Ootake was captured but he's totally cool with it lol so isn't it more like he's defected?
I laughed more than I should haveQuote:
Chart refreshed at the top.
I'm still not sure if I'm willing to take on the challenge of including every character. Elboh is valid, though. I'll definitely add him later.
I almost forgot: I wanted to thank you since I used Hi wa Mata Noboru’s scans for the chart’s pictures!
Ootake: Captured (but cool with it)But I will consider it!
Nakaume: Captured (by his boss, worst job ever)
Komatsu: Captured (despite the best efforts of his
This is what forums are all about, great work!
I did one back then when the manga was in Mellow Cola arc, it had an hierarchy structure, and it was good with a few characters, but soon a lot more were introduced and it got too complicated.
Yours looks a lot better.
Now i think link is dead -*-
@Pucheggz: I checked the link and it still works for me. Are you sure?
Also, a note: I'm currently working on making a bigger version of this (higher resolution plus more characters). I'm not sure when it'll be done, though.
Oh today its ok -*- i think my internet . sry
