Shigematsu is the Vice-President of the IGO whose authority is second only to President Ichiryuu. He is a man of powerful authority and tremendous strength who takes his position very seriously. In truth however, he is in fact a member of NEO and has been acting as a spy for them within the IGO all along.
He is a very large, muscular man with a big, black beard and mustache and thick, black hair with a stripe of white hair down the middle.His typical attire consist of a black sleeveless v neck and laced shirt, green pants tuck inside knee high laced boots and a white cape. Noticibly on his left arm are three long scars and wears a teeth string bracelet and strapped on his right hip a brown holster like bag with an unknown object sticking out. He keeps one eye closed at all times, as well as a nose plug over the bridge of his nose. When these are removed, which he does when preparing to fight Grinpatch, his appearance becomes wilder and his muscles bulge, causing his clothes to tear.
When Grinpatch comes to the 1st Biotope to retrieve the GT Robo's, Shigematsu is shown to be disappointed that Starjun or Tommyrod had not come, showing not only his delight in fighting, but also his knowledge of the Bishokukai. He is later revealed to be a member of NEO and shows no remorse when he, literally, back stabbed his former comrade and drinking buddy.
Powers and Abilities
Considering his status as Vice president of IGO and comments about him from other characters in the series, it can be inferred that he is very powerful. It is also likely that he can enter the Gourmet World.
Full Power Form
When he removes his nose plug and flicks his left cheekbone, causing his eye to open, his muscles start to bulge and he gets a wilder appearance.
Regal Mammoth Arc
Shigematsu first made his appearance in Gourmet 54. When he was asked about Zebra’s release by Mansam due to the fact that it would have been easier to defend the Regal Mammoth, he replied that it wasn’t going to be easy and Director Gras will have to worry about losing face too.
BB Corn Arc
Shigematsu is seen in a flashback of Grinpatch's explaining to Toriko why he was after the BB Corn. It was because he couldn’t get back the GT Robos from Mansam and Shigematsu in the 1st Biotope. Not wanting to fight them, he left them there as he thought they were worthless pieces of junk.
Cooking Festival Arc
During the ongoing battle in Cooking Fest, Mansam continues to battle it out against the army of giant GT Robos, but he is suddenly stabbed in the back by the tongue of a giant snake which belongs to none other than Shigematsu, who then reveals himself to be a member of NEO and coldly grins at the wounded Mansam. When Midora shoots his Meteor Spice on Cooking Island, Tokage appears from the ground to take Ahmon away along with the other members.
