|~ Starjun talking to Chiyo.|
Starjun (スタージュン, Sutājun or pronounced Sta-Jyun) is one of the Vice-Chefs of the Bishokukai and one of the major antagonists in the Toriko series. He appears to be searching for an as of yet unknown ingredient. It was revealed that Ootake was his combo partner. He is also the rival bishokukai of Toriko.
He was voiced by Shin-ichiro Miki in the Japanese version, and Scott Freeman in the English version.
Starjun is a tall man, slightly taller than Toriko, with long black hair. He generally dresses in a manner similar to a knight, complete with an imposing metal mask which makes his eyes appear featureless and demonic. Beneath the mask, however, Starjun has a relatively normal face, with a furrowed brow similar to Zebra's, long black hair and handsome features. He has a large scar or burn on the left side of his face and neck. In the manga, he has a normal Caucasian skin and his helmet is brighter, while in the anime his skin is of a white-pale pattern and his helmet is of a pitch-black blue color.
Starjun is not the one to mince words and will admit his mistakes (e.g. he operates the GT Robot that Toriko defeats in the Regal Mammoth and admits that the Jewel Meat was not obtained because he wanted to test Toriko's abilities). He appears to be extremely noble, or at least respectful to those he considers strong, setting the GT Robot's pain sensors to 100% to test and feel Toriko's maximum power. He seems to show an interest in Komatsu's cooking skills after observing his carving knife and wanted him to be useful to the Gourmet Corp. Likewise, he has no interest or intent in harming people for no reason, shown twice when, during his first encounter with Toriko and Coco, he simply ignores them even when they were prepared to fight and when, after defeating Toriko, he calmly states that Komatsu was the smartest one for not battling him and was perfectly content to hold a brief conversation with him before leaving him completely untouched. However, he also appears to be a little permissive and tolerant for even the most mundane of resistances such as threatening to kill Komatsu after he demands him to give his knife back. He also has a habit of scratching his head with one finger when he is puzzled or thinking. Starjun also has a love for battle, shown after being bombarded by multiple attacks by Toriko at Cooking Fest. He mentions how "elated" he was battling Toriko and that he knew a battle with him would be a thrill, indicating further his excitement in the face of danger.
