Pikachu has reason to believe this was copied from somewhere else, and he is not amused. It's not THAT big a deal that this was probably copied from another wiki, but c'mon, we've got our own style.
This page is likely plagiarized from this one: https://klonoa.fandom.com/wiki/Klonoa_(character)?oldid=7288
Pikachu demands that you insert some Original Research at least so it's not a complete plagiarism: or he shall electrocute you into next week.

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

While most protagonists tend to be consistent with their level of bravery, Klonoa has a wide range of fear levels. For instance, when around water or heights, Klonoa can become uneasy as he can't swim, but remains relaxed/confident when around even the nastiest of ghosts or monsters. He also can be quite absent-minded and unclever at times. However, Klonoa is kind and amicable, and does anything to protect friends and to help others.

While in Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil, he had more laid back and neutral, albeit flakey personality traits, it seems in his original design and storyline from his debut title he was childish and very optimistic, although both of his incarnations have kind hearts and strong wills.

His kindness was reflected in Klonoa 2, in which a strange voice was calling him, known as a "Dream Voice", and was later found out to be the King of Sorrow, for he was sad because people had forgotten him. When Klonoa acknowledged who the voice was, with an open heart, he helped the King of Sorrow by ringing the Fifth Bell of the Kingdom of Sorrow, and made sure that Lunatea would never forget sorrow. While that, Popka comments that Klonoa reminds him of the Goddess Claire. In Klonoa Heroes and Namco x Capcom he protests against Joka's attempt of suicide, despite everything he did to him.

In addition to kindness, Klonoa never gives up through fights against evil and challenges.

As for food, hamburgers are a favorite of his, but he doesn't like tomatoes or carrots.

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.
