Rin is an employee at the Gourmet Coliseum in the IGO's First Gourmet Facility. She uses different perfumes and fragrances that manipulate beasts' state of mind. She is also the younger sister of Sunny, one of the famed Four Heavenly Kings.
Rin is a light skinned girl with short black hair and blue eyes. She wears a red gi top with green borders and no sleeves and a pair of short black tights. She has large thighs with a scar on the left one. Because of this, Sunny comically describes her as "manly". Rin also has a single scar on the right side of her face which she gave herself in an attempt to copy Toriko's three scars but stopped after one because she made it on the wrong side. She also has formal attire which consists of a red and green strapless top and a short frilly yellow skirt. She has also been seen in a bathing suit which is made up of a red bikini top with green borders and red shorts with green borders as well.
She is a sweet, courageous and caring young woman but comes off as quite a tomboy although she tends to make girly outbursts from time to time whenever she is happy (especially around Toriko), in fact her most defining trait is her notably huge crush and admiration for Toriko which borders on fanatical (much to Toriko's dismay), so much so that she was willing to even copy his scars. She also gets distracted from her duties when he's around and tends to get quite clumsy and ditzy in his presence. She also becomes saddened and jealous when Toriko shows affection to others or ignores her for any particular reason. According to Sunny's observations and touch, Rin takes a large interest in sweet foods, contributing to the fat underneath her skin, which Sunny states is "insane". Contributing to this reason is her dislike of alcohol or alcohol-containing foods, which Mansam makes sure to serve at every meal, leading her to eat the Horohoro Parfait that his Hayanpanther, Rikky eats, as such both she and Rikky get along quite well.
Powers, Abilities and EquipmentEdit
Rin relies on different perfumes and fragrances to manipulate beasts. She is known as composite user, who uses her skill to control other beasts. Her fragrances work on all manner of beasts making her an excellent tamer, however these fragrances have no effect on GT Robos, putting her in an extremely dangerous situation when faced with one. She is also skilled in using a special fragrance firing sniper rifle, showing that she has good marksmanship skills. Aside from her fragrances, she is an agile and swift human with above average speed, senses, strength and endurance thanks to her Gourmet Cells, although it appears she is not as strong as the Four Heavenly Kings or other known humans with Gourmet Cells. Much like Mansam, her body can recover from injuries, even fatal ones, if she tastes something that is compatible with her Gourmet Cells: in her case, it appears to be Toriko's saliva, as shown when he "kissed" her after she was heavily wounded by Starjun. It is unknown if she possesses any other skills or abilities or knowledge of any particular forms of hand-to-hand combat. In the battle against the Bishokukai at the Cooking Fest, she was able to defeat at least Dohsa and injure Bei with little damage on her part.
- Fragrance Gauntlets: Special gauntlets that release the fragrances Rin uses. They are green and red in color with orange nozzle and there is a cartridge slot in each of them for inserting the fragrance containers.
- Fragrance Bazooka: A special bazooka that can fire the fragrance Rin uses like a bullet making it quite hard to avoid.
- Measuring Tongs: Another kind of gauntlet used by Rin to measure the exact Capture Level of beings and objects, even of those beyond Capture Level 100. However it only measures Capture Levels based on physical strength.
- Battle Fragrance: A fragrance extracted from the Battle Flower that increases an animal's will to battle. It affects the animals' central nervous system making them violent while at the same time stimulating the body into its peak form. It can also be use on humans as well (Toriko asks Rin to use it on him to increase his intimidation).
- Super Relaxation Fragrance: A fragrance made with pheromones from the Nikoniko Manatee that causes a monster to become tame and relaxed.
- Hyper Endorphin Fragrance: A fragrance with endorphins made to decrease the sense of pain in creatures. She can use these on humans as well to help ease their sense of pain in battle, allowing them to exert more power without being hindered.
- Thunder Peppermint Fragrance: Rin's strongest scented fragrance, it is concentrated menthol taken from dried peppermint leaves; the feeling of this scent is compared to that of a bolt lightning. One sniff is enough to keep one awake for five days.
- Devil Durian Fragrance: The fragrance exploits the extract of the "Devil Durian." Its stench is powerful enough to repel bugs up to half a kilometer radius.
- Super Deodorant Fragrance: A fragrance that can erase the scent of the user and those near him/her. It allows Rin to remain virtually undetected from beasts who rely heavily on scent and can approach them without any fear. It can even work on the fearsome Four Beast, a powerful creature from the Gourmet World.
- King Sleep Fragrance: A fragrance that causes intense drowsiness extracted from the cell of the "King Sloth a animal that sleeps 364 and 23 hours a year, anyone who sniffs this fragrance can't open their eyes for a month and the sleepness is contagious. It is a forbidden fragrance used as a weapon.
- Fragrance Sword: Rin apparently releases some kind of fragrance and sets fire to it, thus seemingly sprouting two blades from her gauntlets.

Not much is known about Rin's past, however, it is known that during her childhood, she, along with her brother, Sunny, and three other children named Toriko, Coco and Zebra, were young starving orphans living alone in a poverty-stricken nation with no one to care for them... That was until they were discovered by the IGO's top members, Ichiryuu and Mansam, who came to their nation to distribute food to the poor. Having noticed the children's potential, Ichiryuu decided to take them under his wing and teach them the ways of the Bishokuya, and train them to their physical peaks.
Eventually, Rin became very skilled in the use of mood-controlling fragrances which help to control the behavior of beasts, and then went on to become the right-hand assistant of Mansam, helping him manage the 1st Biotope and the Gourmet Coliseum. On the other hand, her brother and friends became the Four Heavenly Kings, some of the most well known Bishokuya in the Human World. At an unknown point during or after their training, Rin and the four boys were injected with Gourmet Cells which increased their physical power beyond that of normal humans.
Regal Mammoth ArcEdit
Rin is first seen in the Gourmet Coliseum, where she is handling many of the beasts for the upcoming battles. She gives Mansam a call, who asks her about the Devil Serpent's condition; she called saying the Battle Fragrance Machine was broken and she's trying her best to fix it. As soon as Mansam referred to Toriko, Rin quickly turned giddy and excited, which caused her to become less focused, losing control of the machine even more. Thus, the fragrance spread even more, leading the beasts to go berserk. Later, when the Battle Wolf turned out to be undergoing parthenogenesis, Mansam ordered her to stop the Fragrance. To make things worse, she broke the machine even more by mistake, all due to Mansam's "handsome" statement teasing. She then decided to go herself and manually use her the fragrance. Unfortunately, she didn't get enough time to calm the Serpent down before the Serpent threw acidic poison at her, and broke free out of the cell, and into the coliseum. She was then seen admiring the Battle Wolf's strength when it cut the Devil Serpent down.
She then witnessed Bei's attempt to kill the Wolf, and used her Endorphin Smoke to, create a fog, distracting Bei's laser shot from hitting the Wolf again, and, relieve the Wolf's pain. After that, she witnessed, Bei's subsequent defeat by Toriko and Toriko comforting the deceased Battle Wolf's newborn pup, which he named Terry Cloth. Later that night, Rin attended Mansam's dinner party along with Toriko and Komatsu, and commented on how Mansam's Full Course Menu sucks. In the anime, she was annoyed by Tina's presence, and had a small argument with her, but Mansam told her that he's the one who invited her. Near the end of the party, and while eating the giant Horohoro Parfait with Rikky, she was jealous of the attention Terry was receiving from Toriko. Toriko noticed Mansam forgot about the mission they had (capturing the Regal Mammoth), but Rin reassured them that her brother, Sunny, was on his way with the Mammoth.
The following day, Rin was seen with a Horohoro Parfait, fighting with Tina over Tina being so friendly with Toriko, all while awaiting Sunny's arrival. She was the first to spot Sunny with her binocular. Sunny threw the Mammoth towards Mansam, and all of them had to jump down the cliff to avoid getting squashed, and as soon as Sunny looked at Rin, he started scolding her for her diet, and likewise, Rin made fun of his appearance, leading to a childish fight between the siblings. Toriko, Rin and the others then quickly set off in search for the parent Mammoth, as Mansam explained the one Sunny caught was just a lost child. After reaching Black Carpet, Rin lead Toriko to a Cocomayonnaise tree, totally ignoring Sunny, who was mentioning his Full course Menu to Komatsu, and was then happy when Toriko complimented her for finding the tree. She commented on the Gourmet Spicer being a prototype, and soon after, they were attacked by a herd of Rock Drums. Rin was surprised when Sunny refused to help Toriko fight the beasts due to it being troublesome. Rin decided to join the fight, too, but instead of helping, made things worse when she shot Battle Fragrance instead of Super Relaxation at the beasts, making them angry. The beast cornered Rin, but Sunny saved her at the last moment; not because she's his sister, but because the beast's shell was beautiful, making Rin depressed. She then runs away when she suspected Sunny will hit a Fry Gaeshi, and warns Komatsu to stay back. During the time Sunny fought the beast, Rin explained about Sunny's hair to Komatsu and Tina, and then ignored the fight and started eating Cocomayonnaise with Toriko. After the fight, she argued with Sunny, who wanted to head back and ignore the Mammoth, now that he's gotten something beautiful; Rockdrum's Shell.
Right after, another Rockdrum kicked them flying each into different areas. Rin, much to her excitement, ends up lost with Toriko in White Forest, having to fight off a large horde of beasts. In order to scare them all off at once, Rin uses her Battle Fragrance on Toriko in order to increase the potency of his Intimidation Aura, which easily scares them off, except for a lone Obsaurus. She then again uses another Battle Fragrance at Toriko to scare the Obsaurus off, and then used Super Relaxation when she thought Toriko's body won't handle anymore. They defeat the stubborn beast, who then allies itself with them and carries them to the Devil Athletics. There, Rin and Toriko encountered the Axe Ox, which proveed to be quite a challenge (since Toriko was out of stamina), but with the aid of her fragrances, they managed to defeat it. She was worried about Toriko, who's hunger weakened him. Later, they face the Mystery Bird Rubanda, and again, with her Thunder Peppermint, and with help of Terry, they managed to get past it. They finally got out of the Athletics when Terry guided them through a shortcut, and arrived at the Regal Plateau, where, to their horror, they found the massive Regal Mammoth sliding down the mountain side, about to crush Komatsu, Sunny and them all. Quickly taking action, Toriko uses his fork and knife to create a hole in the ground to shield themselves from the Mammoth. Coco mentioned that it's been a while seing Rin when he saved them from the Heavycliffs. However, soon after, they are inhaled by the massive creature and end up inside its body, where they then set off to search for its Jewel Meat.
After a long trip inside the Mammoth's maze body, Starjun's GT Robo appears; sent Toriko flying, and just when Rin was using Fragrance Bazooka, he hit her a fatal blow. Despite her condition, she still used Endorphin Smoke on Toriko to ease his pain, and also as a smokescreen for the others to run. Starjun blocked Komatsu's path to Rin, saying Rin and Toriko will die soon. Toriko sent him flying with a punch, and went to see how Rin is doing. On the verge of dying, she talked to him about what causd her scar; On a mission to deliver the Silk Bird egg, Toriko was chased by a pack of Hyena Gangs, and when Rin helped him, Toriko noticed that she got a scar. She looked in the mirror and was tricked, thinking her scar was on the same side as Toriko's, making her happy. She then asked him a final wish, which wasn't shown. After Starjun's Robo recovered from the hit, Toriko activated Autophagy. Toriko mentioned that Rin was prepared to die from the start, unlike the Robo. After the fight was over, Toriko thought to himself that it was all over, but then heard Rin's voice through his head saying it's just beginning. This surprised Toriko, who went to check up on her, and smelled iron flowing through her blood, concluding she's alive. The Mammoth then throws them out his body, and Sunny used Hair Operation to give her first-aid. Back at the Research Lab, they had her treated, and Johannes mentioned that her cells evolved rapidly, and helped her recover, wondering what kind of food she ate for that. When she woke up, she thanked Toriko for what he did, and Toriko was surprised, saying he doesn't recall doing anything. Later that night, they all enjoyed dinner on the Jewel Meat.
BB Corn ArcEdit
In the Research Lab, Rin was sitting down in the hallway when a Gauchi broke out of prison. She was spaced out thinking about Toriko until Sunny alerted her, who was there to tell her he's leaving for the Country of Healing to heal his cuticles. Rin mentioned that everyone's just being carefree, including Mansam and Shigematsu.
(Filler): Later, as Sunny was about to travel with his helicopter, she rushed to him complaining that Komatsu went alone to Wu Jungle; she wanted to go see Toriko.
Century Soup ArcEdit
She appears when Sunny was on the way to Lifewith his helicopter; she contacted him mentioning she wants to take a ride on the plane too to Toriko's House. After Toriko's fight with Tommyrod, he went to Life to recover. Rin overheard Coco mentioning this to Mansam and Shigematsu, and rushed over to Life. She begged Yosaku to help Toriko, and threatened him in the process, reminding him of Setsuno. Yosaku requests that Sunny and Rin bring lots of food, and when she came back, found Toriko's hair shorter, and commented on how cool it is. Rin and Sunny help bring food and Medicine Beesupplies to Toriko, and watched over his healing progress the whole time until he recovered.
