Powers and Abilities
He is a strong and large beast with incredible speed and strength. His speed allows him to swiftly catch a GT Robo core and he has enough strength to smash its gold structure with ease. His wings allow him to fly at great speeds and travel to other nations in a short time. His capture level was originally 35 when he was first introduced, but as the story has progressed, he has grown considerably, now having an estimated capture level of around 70 and stands around the same height as the now giant Terry Cloth.
Rikky first met Mansam in the wild, and according to Mansam, Rikky saved him when he was in danger, however the complete details behind their meeting are not given. Rikky was soon after adopted by Mansam and made his animal partner. He would then raise the young Hayanpanther in the Gourmet Research Laboratory on the 1st Biotope.
Regal Mammoth Arc
Rikky is first seen standing on Mansam's back while he was casually doing pushups in his quarters the day before Toriko's arrival to the 1st Biotope.
During the Gourmet Coliseum's fight between Toriko and Bei's Robo, and when Bei was finally defeated, Bei's Robo's core antenna tried escaping the place, but Mansam ordered Johannes and the coliseum staff to open the hatch to his room, where Rikky was. Rikky swiftly dealt the finishing blow to the antenna by Mansam's orders. He was again seen in the dining room when Mansam invited Toriko and Komatsu to his Full Course Menu. Mansam commented that Terry, a Battle Wolf, who's never is to never get attached to anyone, got attached to Toriko, just like Rikky did with him. Meanwhile, Rikky was eating a giant Horohoro Parfait together with Rin.

Mansam who was with Rikky as always, called the Four Heavenly Kings, Terry Cloth, Kiss, Quinn, Rin and Komatsu to help with the delivery. Once everyone was set, Mansam and Komatsu flew off on Rikky's back to deliver their share of ingredients. Upon arriving Rikky happily watched as Mansam and Komatsu gave away food to starving children.
