Yun is a small baby Wall Penguin whose height barely reaches Komatsu's waist. It has bright pink and fluffy feathers with a dark pink spot in the middle of its belly and small beady black eyes. When fishing at Pot Pond, it wore a small saddlebag around its body which it used to keep Savorth Worms for fishing and snacking on. Later during the Cooking Festival, it is shown that he has grown to be about Komatsu's size and was even able to carry him on his back. After the time skip, Yun's dark spot is bigger and shaped like a rounded refrigerator door.
It is very energetic and cheerful, and like most baby Wall Penguins, it tends to be very affectionate to those it encounters and is very innocent about its surroundings, however unlike most it is actually able to tell when a situation is dangerous and will easily be frightened by such events. It also cares deeply for Komatsu and always treats him with absolute kindness and affection, and vice versa. In the anime it is also shown to get along very well with Kruppoh, Tina's Carrier Balloon Pigeon. He also gains enough bravery to save Komatsu during the Cooking Fest war despite the dangerous fighting ensuing around it.
Powers and Abilities Edit
During the Cooking Festival arc, Yun shows he is strong enough to fly short distances while carrying Komatsu.
During PAIR arc, it was revealed that Yun has the high level safety monster ability. His dark spot is a door that opens up with Yun's body turning into a Rest Room big enough to store Komatsu. Yun can also expand the size of the Rest Room by inhaling.
Century Soup ArcEdit
When Komatsu first found it he hoped to return it to its parents, but after they were horribly killed by the Bishokukai Tommyrod Komatsu decided to adopt the little guy and keep it as a pet. This decision would later pay off greatly as it turned out that its saliva was the final key ingredient in completing the Century Soup, which rose Komatsu's status to new heights.
Toriko's Break ArcEdit
Trip to the Beach (Anime)Edit
Autumn Break ArcEdit
Yun accompanied Komatsu and Toriko on their trip to the Gourmet Temple.
Bubble Fruit ArcEdit
Komatsu later took Yun with him to Pot Pond when he, Toriko and their friends were fishing for the Madam Fish. Yun spent most of the time having fun by sliding on the ice with its belly or handing out Savorth Worms for fishing.
Cooking Fest ArcEdit
He showed up during the war to save Komatsu from being attacked by Scum Beasts and at the same time demonstrated his new flying ability. He also helped Komatsu dodge Grinpatch's Breath Missile attack and later on he flew Komatsu to see Toriko, but when they got there it appeared that Starjun had already defeated Toriko.
A year and a half later, Yun was shown to be alive and well (although his whereabouts and caretaker during Komatsu's absence is not mentioned). Yun was present at Toriko Harbor along with the animal partners of the Four Heavenly Kings as they joined their masters in getting ready to go to the Gourmet World. Once they had said their goodbyes, the Kings, Komatsu, and their animal partners hopped on the Octomelon that would take them to the Thorn Sea and the third entrance to the Gourmet World, Yutou Island's Harbor of Evil Spirits.
While the Four Heavenly Kings where fighting the Monkey King Bambina, Yun stayed by Komatsu's side in the Denshark camping monster. When Kaka tried to capture Komatsu, he and Yun were no where to be found. After the Heavenly Kings defeat Bambina and obtain Pair, Yun pops up out of the ground and opens up his chest and reveals Komatsu stored inside. Kaka upon seeing this, comments with surprise that Yun is a camping monster with a high level safe zone.
