The Bishokukai had been planning to kidnap as many of top 100 chefs as possible for use in their plan to invade theGourmet World, however they realized that it would be more difficult to kidnap the higher-ranking chefs such as Tairan, as he and the other chefs listed alongside him are individuals of great strength unlike the lowest ranked of the top 100.
