Cars 2 - Shu Todoroki

Shu Todoroki is a Le Motor Prototype racer representing Japan and bearing #7 in the World Grand Prix. Shu was raised at the base of the active Mount Asama volcano in Japan, and soon became a champion on the Suzuka Circuit. His sleek design sports a fiery red Ka-Riu dragon, which Shu borrowed from the Japanese legend because he relates to the small, yet fierce nature of the dragon. His team legacy is filled with victories – his coach, a Mazda, was the only Japanese car to ever win at Le Mans – and Shu hopes to prove his champion-level racing on the international stage of the World Grand Prix.

Cars 2

In Cars 2, he participated in the three World Grand Prix races and in the Radiator Springs Grand Prix. Shu revealed himself to be one of the best racers in the competition. He finished in fourth place in the Tokyo race, and kept that position most of the time in the other two races. He was the last car in the Porto Corsa race and one of three cars in it whose motor/engine exploded.

He violently enters into a collision with Miguel Camino, and Max Schnell hits them both, which they both couldn't brake in time. They eventually hit and pileup. After time comes, Raoul ÇaRoule and Rip Clutchgoneski are also trying to brake, but it's too late, and they also crashed into Shu. At last comes Jeff Gorvette and Lewis Hamilton. They braked very fast and didn't crash into Shu Todoroki. However, he was able to recover and participate in the final race in London. In that race, his pit was between Francesco's and Miguel Camino's, and he was seen in the 9th position behind Nigel Gearsley and Carla Veloso. After passing through the Admiralty Arch he was in the 8th position, passing Carla. In the Radiator Springs Grand Prix, first he was seen talking with Carla Veloso and was next seen at the 4th position in front of Rip Clutchgoneski and Miguel Camino.

Trivia

  • Shu Todoroki's coach, mentioned in his backstory, alludes to the Mazda 787B, who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1991, and remains the only Japanese car to date to have won this competition.
  • Shu's pit crew chief is Mach Matsuo.
  • Shu's Mattel diecast of the pit launchers and the rubber tires are shown to have a white bumper on him, although the revamp of him has a black bumper.
  • Before it ended, you could buy the Ka-Riu dragon costume in Ramone's House of Body Art in The World of Cars Online.
  • Shu has a Formula 1 engine in Cars: Fast as Lightning, when he is revving up for the start of the race. This engine is the same as Francesco's.
  • Shu's big fan is Todd Marcus in Cars: Fast as Lightning.
  • In all of the races, his pits was named "Todokori" rather than "Todoroki", that might be the correct name of Shu (maybe Shu Todokori).
  • Russian translation of his name, Сю Тодороки (Syu Todoroki), uses wrong transcription of the name "Shu", spelling it as Сю (Syu) instead, Шу (Shu) which is usually used in transcription of the name from Japanese and Chinese. The mistake comes from applying rules of transcription from English name, instead of from Japanese.
  • According to a documentary video for Cars 3 called "Cars to Die-Cast For", Shu got his first name from Jay Shuster, a character designer for the Cars franchise.
  • He bears a resemblance in both colour scheme and name to Shoto Todoroki, a primary character of the My hero Academia, although it is unknown if this was intentional.
