Wahoo!
~ Klonoa's famous catchphrase

Klonoa, sometimes referred to as Klonoa of the Wind or Dream Traveler is the titular main protagonist of the series with the same name and an anthropomorphic video game character created by Namco and Klonoa Works, and has starred in his own series since 1997.

In the original Japanese version, he is voiced by Kumiko Watanabe, who also voiced Regina in Doki Doki! Pretty Cure, and in the English version of the 2009 Wii remake of the original 1997 Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, he is voiced by Eric Stitt.

Personality

Klonoa is the young protagonist of the series who, as the "Dream Traveler", is destined to travel to different dream universes and save them from destruction. He is kind-spirited and has a strong sense of justice; he's able to make friends wherever he goes, but he is also shown as naive.

Appearance

Klonoa has black and white fur and it has been noted that once or twice (most recently, in the Wii version) his eye color appears to be two-toned (both orange and yellow in the irises). Likewise, he is a cat-like anthropomorphic character with long ears and a Pac-Man cap.


Abilities

Klonoa's ring allows him to fire wind bullets, which inflate things. Upon inflating an enemy, Klonoa can do various things. He can use the enemy to Double Jump, which would in turn throw the enemy or thing down wards and destroy them. Afterwards he could hover with his ears. Klonoa can also fling inflated enemies forward into other enemies, or into objects.

Klonoa has very large ears and they enable him to fly for a short time.

Other appearances

  • Klonoa had cameo appearances in Moto GP and Alpine Racer 3.
  • Klonoa and his rival Guntz from Klonoa Heroes also appear as a playable duo in Namco's cross-over RPG, Namco x Capcom, developed by Monolith Soft. They retain similar moves featured in Klonoa Heroes, such as Klonoa's Thunder Hurricane. Other appearances are made by Lolo, Janga (in his only console appearance as of 2006), Joka, the Priestess of La-Lakoosha and various varieties of Moos.
  • In Tales of Symphonia, the character Presea Combatir has a hidden costume based off Klonoa's outfit accessed by changing her title to "Dream Traveler". She also has a habit of saying "Wahoo" in a completely deadpan manner while wearing it (this happens during the optional skits and scenes wherein she wears the outfit, she talks normally whilst in battle and these lines are not voiced by her voice actor in the English version of the game. However, if one imports Titles to a New Game, Presea will occasionally say "Wahoo!" as an end-of-battle phrase, but only up until a certain plot event).
  • In the manga, Shibuutenkoku Kaze no Klonoa, Klonoa and the Breezegale residents are the major characters. But many changes are made in this manga - it portrays Klonoa as a complete idiot, obsessed with being a hero and causing trouble anywhere he goes (althrough not on purpose). His sidekick, surprisingly, is not Huepow - he is replaced by a Moo, who is the postman of Breezegale.
  • In Tales of Hearts and Keroro RPG, Klonoa appears as a summon character. Incidentally, both Klonoa and Sgt. Keroro have the same voice actress.
  • In Tales of Vesperia, Klonoa appears in the form of a fellowship statue named (C) F Statue. There is also a Klonoa costume for the character Karol as Downloadable Content in the PS3 version.
  • In Tales of Destiny 2, a Klonoa plushie can be seen at the left side of the character Harold's room.
  • In Ridge Racer 6 & 7, Klonoa appeared in ads and as a car design.
  • There are advertisements of him in tracks at Ridge Racer Type 4.
  • Klonoa has also recently appeared in Soul Calibur V as a keychain in his Klonoa 2 appearence as Downloadable Content for Character Creation.

Trivia

  • The Pokémon Lopunny, Shaymin (Sky Forme) and the Digimon Terriermon and Lopmon seem to share the same ear design as Klonoa.
  • In a game magizine interview, Hideo Yoshizawa confirmed that he got his idea of Klonoa from Mario.
  • On the right side of his hat is Pac-Man (since the Pac-Man series was also created by Namco).
  • Some people say that he is a copy of Miles "Tails" Prower, a character from the Sonic series.
  • The fandom tends to refer to him as a "cabbit", that is, cat + rabbit, despite Namco claiming he is a cat.
  • Popka, Tat, Balue, Pango, and Guntz all seem to notice Klonoa has a crush on Lolo and remark on their worry for each other.
