  • Many of this book's entries correspond to the Gourmet Checklists, though most simply summarize the series' information up until the Mellow Cola arc.
  • Takeshi is the main character of Shimabukuro's first serialized work, Seikimatsu Leader den Takeshi!. The author usually draws him as a cameo in chapters of Toriko and has done the same in other past works.
  • The Toriko one-shot dated from 2002 was the first prototype for the series. The second was published in 2007 and is featured in Toriko Gaiden among other short stories from Shimabukuro.
  • A few characters have their name stylized in the guide while the rest don't. This includes Toriko (using the manga's logo), Coco, Sunny, Zebra, Starjun, Grinpatch and Tommyrod.
