The Silk Bird is a large bird beast that is renowned for its beautiful and valuable eggs.
The Silk Bird is a giant buzzard with a rotund body, tiny eyes, a long neck, a hookbill beak and a small spike atop its head. It was large enough to take up quite a bit of space in tower-sized pot.
Its behavior in the wild is unknown.
The Silk Bird lays unique eggs that are as delicate and beautiful as silk. The eggs have an excellent taste and are also special in that even individuals born with a weak body and countless allergies can eat them without difficulty. However, Silk Bird Eggs are very difficult to transport due to their incredibly frailty as well as the fact that they can lure deadly beasts.
The eggs of the Silk Bird were discovered by Gourmet Hunter, Toriko at an unknown point in his past, although it is uncertain if the Silk Bird itself was also Toriko's discovery. Chef Setsuno would later use a Silk Bird to improve her incomplete version of the Century Soup.
Century Soup ArcEdit
Cooking Festival ArcEdit
A woman with a Silk Bird Egg offered her last egg to Toriko as a show of gratitude for having discovered it, as it was the only ingredient her sickly son could eat while he was alive.
Anime and Manga DifferencesEdit
- In the anime, it bears very little resemblance to its manga counterpart or a bird, with even its head having a more grotesque and asymmetrical design.
