Blue Dragon PlusEdit
In Blue Dragon Plus, Toripo is found in a Mecha Robo factory and was freed from the machine once it was offline. He explains he was on an adventure and stumbled upon a device that gave robot's a soul, which then allowed him to get his Shadow, Tarantula. He joins the party in their quest to shut down the cube world they were in.
Blue Dragon: Awakened ShadowEdit
In Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow, Toripo is seen with his shadow on another adventure, it is unknown if he has anything to do in the plot. He is revealed to have been comissioned by an in-universe Akira Toriyama on his deathbed, designed to write amazing manga after Toriyama passes away.
Toripo has shown to be able to explore places, even the most dangerous like the field Moon Lasers. His weapon in Blue Dragon Plus is a harpoon.
Toripo gained his Tarantula Shadow after getting a device that gave him a soul. Tarantula gives it wielder Barrier magic.
- Toripo bears a strinking resemblance and has a similar name to the Dr. Slump character Tori-bot, who also make appearances in the Dragon Ball series. Both were designed by Akira Toriyama (as were all characters in the series), and like Tori-bot, Toripo is likely to represent Toriyama himself in comedic appearances in Blue Dragon universe.
- In the Kanzenban edition of Dragon Ball, Tori-bot is exactly similiar to Toripo, wearing a green jumpsuit like him.
- It is interesting to note that while in the Laser Fields, Toripo was attacked by the Moon Laser, which automatically attacks those with magic, suggesting that Toripo might have already had his shadow or something similar by this event.
