Somehow, the creative and outgoing Soma Yukihira should remind Food wars! fans of a variety of similar anime characters.

5 Izuku Midoriya is a smart hero (My Hero Academia)
Izuku Midoriya, also known by his hero name Deku, is an underdog who is happy to take on any challenge if it means he can prove himself in front of the world and grow stronger. He also fights entirely for the good of others, and all of this makes him quite similar to Soma Yukihira at heart.

4 Joseph Joestar is a delicate hero (JoJo’s bizarre adventure)
Joseph Joestar is the hero of the Combat tendency history, and unlike his grandfather Jonathan, Joseph is known for his clumsy demeanor and astute combat tactics in a fight. Jonathan was a noble brute force fighter, while Joseph is a cunning and charismatic thug.

3 Lucy Heartfilia loves the Fairy Tail guild (Fairy Tail)
At first, Soma Yukihira and the magician Lucy Heartfilia may seem like very different people, but they overlap a lot. Both lived with a single father until they left home and found themselves in a new organization, where they can reinvent themselves and realize their potential.
Lucy joined the Fairy Tail Guild while Soma became a student of Totsuki, and they both quickly made new friends and inspired them with genuine loyalty and trust. “The Power of Friendship” is the unofficial motto of the guild, and likewise, Soma cooks for the love of others. He and Lucy are also both quite creative and resourceful in combat.
2 Avatar Aang fights for peace (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Avatar Aang and Soma would get along if they met, as they share so many core values. The two heroes prefer peace to war, and they understand that fighting for the good of others is the noblest cause of all. Never will Soma or Aang fight for their own glory or material gain.
Aang and Soma will fearlessly take on any challenge to protect their friends and restore peace, and they are also curious and flexible-minded people who can find a creative solution out of nowhere. They are both unpredictable and prankster heroes.
