I see many similarities in these two characters such as both Toriko and Midora being born with scars on there faces, being born poor and starving, having similar appetites, being quick learners, and Midora looks very similar to Toriko during his kid and teen years. Plus when Midora heard Toriko's name from komatsu he acted strangely about the name Toriko. So could Midora be the father of Toriko, and if so who is the mother?
It is a possibility. I started thinking the same thing ever since we saw young Midora. Still it's hard for me to picture Midora as the type of person who would have any interest in romance or reproduction.

I never even thought of Toriko having parents until the latest chapter, but Toriko having powerful parents could lend some understanding to why he is so strong. I like the idea of him being a clone, but it wouldn't explain why he was found in the wilderness. Midora could be his father, and maybe he doesn't have a mother, maybe he was born from apetite, this could explain why he has two, possibly three gormet demons within him.
I believe Toriko and Starjun are the children of Froese and Acacia. Joie is the reincarnated Froese with a different soul. Froese was pregnant with a child(ren) when she died. Acacia and Joie both believe that Joie is that unborn child; however, Midora refutes this by explaining, "Joie is the reincarnation of Froese herself... not the grown up form of whatever was in her womb" so never specifically says a boy, girl or twins. This leads Acacia to believe the child was never born, but Midora does not respond. If Joie is the real body of Froese and reborn, wouldn't Joie have noticed being pregnant? Where did the child go? So I think it is safe to assume the child also survived. I think when the children were born Midora adopted Starjun and abandoned Toriko(why Torikos origin starts in the wild), and I assume that Starjun is the older child and probably showed more talent/potential to Midora which is why Starjun won in their fight. I think this also explains Toriko and Starjuns potential, and appetite demons.
It is also makes sense why Starjun keeps asking Joie if he knows whos children they are. Maybe Starjun already knows this which is why he doesnt kill Joie. Also I dont see any point in Starjun asking Joie this question if Toriko and Starjun were the children of Midora, why would Joie care if they are Midoras children? They are his enemy, whereas maybe this question would change Joie's mind?
The four heavenly kings are the "sons" of Ichiryu, and Teppei is Jirou's grandson. Midora's relationship with Midora is questionable and it's not made clear if they had a father/son/mentor/pupil-type relationship. All that is known is that Midora and Toriko might be brothers.
