The Don Acorn (首領 (ドン) ドングリ Don Donguri) is a giant oak nut touted as the "King of Acorns".
It has the toughest shell of any acorn, and unless one uses a special hammer to break it (although Toriko cuts clean through one with his Knife), one runs the risk of shattering their knife instead!
The nutmeat inside has a fruity flavor and is popular as a nut juice. In the anime Komatsu was able to use it as an excellent pizza topping for his Melk Special.
Melk Stardust ArcEdit
A Don Acorn is responsible for breaking Komatsu's beloved knife, but in a way it is also responsible for beginning his and Toriko's quest for the Melk Stardust.
In the anime, Komatsu used the Don Acorn, along with Onion Bananas and Plumage Pig Dry-Cured Ham in making the Melk Special pizza for Melk the Second to prove to her the value of the new knife she made for him.
- The Don Acorn is the work of a PN Gyaccyubi(ぎゃっちゅびい) from Mie.
