Intelligence: Is skilled in Food Honor, and as such, knows how to eat many different kinds of high-risk ingredients (Like rice that loses its flavor if you blink while eating it), is also one of the Four Human National Treasures, so he has wealth of experience cooking high capture level ingredients, even more so than the likes of Livebearer or Komatsu, on top of all this, Chin Chin appears to be a master of a food related martial art, using human weaponry in a way even Toriko hasn't been shown to, as he can effect things like fire with his Spoon
Weaknesses: Needs to maintain a constant level of control over his emotions, or else his Food Honor, and thus fighting ability, will suffer
Gourmet Cells: Specialized cells with excellent regenerative and strength-enhancing qualities. When a human successfully adapts Gourmet Cells into their body they gain overwhelming life force and strength, creating a super human. An individual's Gourmet Cells increase in power when they consume delicious foods that suit them and the 'tastes' of their gourmet cells, causing the cells to 'evolve'; this enhances the strength of the user and their abilities. Gourmet cells can also evolve as a response to harsh new environments, instantly creating adaptations which allow the user to survive. Gourmet Cells have very high energy demands, so individuals must consume frequent large amounts of delicious food, lest the cells begin uncontrollably devouring their body at the cellular level.
Food Honor: Both a customary and a philosophical practice of etiquette that teaches gratitude for ingredients and a strict method of eating in, especially difficult, but necessary ways. The teachings of Food Honor tends to vary between adhering groups, but the main teaching of gratitude and careful eating is a staple amongst all of them. Chin follows the discipline taught at the Shokurin Temple, where he learned to continuously show appreciation for one's meal from the bottom of their hearts. In the training, he drastically augmented his physical ability and power of concentration by learning to cut on unnecessary movements, better focus his mind and practicing bodily control and precision.
- Food Immersion: Secret technique of Food Honor. It is the act of expressing pure, sincere appreciation for food at all times. By doing this, Chin is able to immerse himself with a meal, absorbing all the nutrients they have to give, and also able to save more nutrients from it inside his body than normally possible, enabling him to survive for abnormal time spans without food or water and supporting his overall stamina.
Spoon: Chin Chin holds his hand in a cupped position, and swings his arm at a target, scooping them up. Chin Chin is capable of scooping up things as large as mountains, and can also hold non-solid substances like fire on his spoon. Like Toriko's Fork Shield, Chin can also use the back of his Spoons to defend against incoming attacks.
- Spoon Wings: Chin can use his Spoon to catapult himself anywhere at an insane speed by using it as two wings. The force of Spoon results in counter force of the air, giving Chin momentum.
- Spoon Dome: Chin summons two giant spoon ladels, and smashes them together, locking them into place to create a sealed dome. The dome was durable enough to contain Chiyo and Chin's fight.
Full Power Form: When enraged or getting serious, Chin can bulk his muscles so much that his clothes are completely torn to shreds. This was first shown when he decided to fight seriously with Chiyo.
