I think it is weird that Toriko defeated Tommyrod. I mean, Tommyrod had to use his strongest weapon ( that bug inside him) to try to defeat Toriko. It is probably safe to say that Toriko already surpassed Tommy today.
What is funny is that Stadyjun seems to be leagues above Toriko. Grinparch on the other hand seem to be quite strong. Because when he went to the isotope, there were two very strong guys waiting for him the Gourmet Association second and third.
What are you thoughts?
I think that if Tommyrod didn't fool around and waste all of his energy on the bugs and went full strength the whole time, Toriko would not have made it out of there.
Totally difficult to say. Both were pushed at their limits and it was eventually a third party, saseiya teppei who intervened. I think that without his help, toriko and others would have been dead. It was teppei who ended the fight.
I expect a rematch between these two, both grown stronger
I think that what we saw of Tommy was what he was capable of doing at that time. Just like Koen i expect a rematch between these two, who will obviously be a lot more strong by then.
Tommy would've won had he not been fooling around and went all out against Toriko. He only needs to develop his cells more, then add some new, nasty GW insects.
They made a point in the Ice Hell arc that all the fighters were weaker than their opponents. Takimaru was beaten nearly to death, as were all of Match's men. And Match lost a leg. Toriko got totally exhausted until he couldn't use his arms anymore. He won by tricking Tommyrod using the phytoncide and the bugs. It allowed him to get Tommy to exhaust all his bugs. Then he came up with a new technique at the last moment to take one of Tommy's arms. And even after that, Teppei had to finish him off, but he still survived. So Tommyrod was stronger than Toriko at the time, but Toriko still managed to win, really.
"Toriko defeated Tommyrod"
How come? In the end Tommyrod was the one standing, and was about to finish the unconscious Toriko, but Teppei stopped his attack. So Toriko didn't win, he lost and was saved by Teppei. You are not the winner, when the opponent is standing above you, and he is about to kill you and you can't do nothing about it. Yeah Tommyrod was injured a lot by Toriko, but was defeated by Teppei and not by Toriko.
I agree with Unok. lol
Back then they were on different levels and as for a rematch I'm sure that Toriko will win. Toriko will have a hard time fighting TommyBug, though.
I can't stand TommyRod and he's only back again to get his ass kicked by Toriko.
Only to show Toriko's growth.
Edit: No offense, though. I just hate bugs, so...

I dont know why, but tommyrod really reminds me of Frieza
And he didn't need his strongest bug for toriko but for saseiya teppei because he was knocked by him.
He was jast heavily injured because he underestimated Toriko, but if he would have gone fullstrength in the beginning toriko would probably be dead now. But eh he probably got a lil stronger now but has probably not endured such harsh training as toriko so if they have a rematch they probably will have a good all out match, caus Tommy won't go easy on Toriko for a second time, the first time almost got him killed.
But ofcource Toriko wil win to show he 's at or above a lvl of a souschef
He doesn't really need harsh training. When he fought Toriko he was said to already be strong enough to enter the Gourmet World, so I'm sure his increased G-Cell powers will be more than enough to match Toriko and the Gang when they fight again. Then again, I myself am hoping he fight Sani instead of Toriko. That fight would be hilarious.
I think that it would be very likely. It is somewhat destined that Toriko and Tommyrod would fight again because there last fight was interrupted. A rematch is logical BUT everyone is nowadays acknowledging Toriko. Grinpatch, Staajyun,... etc I think all these bishokukai want to fight Toriko.
Well, I hope for a rematch between Toriko and Tommyrod but I wouldn't be surprised if another heavenly king claims to be Tommyrod's opponent
I believe the most plausible reason why we can conclude that Tommy understimated Toriko is that he didn't go all-out from the start - neither with his physical strength, nor with his different bugs.
If he used anything of it from the start Toriko would have been dead for sure.
