The Baron Tiger (バロンタイガー Barontaigā) is a large predatory feline mammal beast, that is mainly found on the Baron Archipelago. It also inhabits tropical forests.
The Baron Tiger has bright pink colored eyes and two large fangs of great material value. It has orange fur over its body and a yellow furred underbelly. It has a lean body, with a large structure and a long tail. Also of note is that it appears to have four ears.
On its home turf, it's a menacing predator. However, it's a pretty smart cat, meaning that if it comes across a creature stronger than itself, it will flee immediately.
The Baron Tiger's meat is tough and pretty much inedible, but it's fangs and fur fetch high prices as luxury items.
Galala Gator ArcEdit
Toriko and Komatsu encounter one in the Baron Archipelago while searching for the Galala Gator. It suddenly appears and tries to attack Komatsu, but it quickly flees after being glared at by Toriko. Though the first one is only present for little time, a large number of them are also seen being eaten by the 300-year-old Garara Gator.

Appearances in Other MediaEdit
Toriko Jump SpecialEdit
The Toriko Jump Special is an OVA adaptation of the Galala Gator Arc, as such the Baron Tiger fulfills its role exactly as in the manga by trying to attack Komatsu then getting scared off by Toriko. Notably, the Baron Tiger is given dark violet fur and yellow eyes in this special. This is likely due to its color scheme not having been revealed at the time.
Toriko: Gourmet SurvivalEdit
In Toriko: Gourmet Survival for the PSP, the Baron Tiger appears as one of the many enemy beasts that can be fought and hunted on Megamori Island. It mainly attacks by swiping its claws, pouncing and biting.
