Kuromi (クロミ, Kuromi) is My Melody's rival, originating from the anime Onegai My Melody. She is a white rabbit wearing a black jester's hat with a pink skull on the front and a black devil's tail. The skull's facial expression changes to match Kuromi's mood. Fittingly, her birthday is Halloween (October 31st). Her name translates from Japanese to English as ’black (kuro) beauty (mi).’
Kuromi has become a popular character for the punk, scene, and goth crowds due to her appearance.
My Melody’s friendly rival is a tomboy who loves making mischief and causing trouble! Although she may look tough, she is actually very girly and is attracted to good-looking guys!
She enjoys writing in her diary, whist hooked onto romantic short stories and making mischief. Her favourite color is black. Her favorite food is shallots (pickled onions in the anime), takoyaki, all kinds of meat, and in recent Kuromi merchandise cherries have been shown.
Kuromi is the self-proclaimed rival to My Melody, and is adamant about her feelings being strictly rivalry, though she secretly cares for My Melody.
Kuromi is the leader of Kuromi's 5, 5-unit biker gang who love riding their tricycles whislt causing havoc at breakneck speeds. They are Nyanmi, Wanmi, Konmi, and Chumi, who all wear black hooded ponchos in a menacing fashion, similar to the yakuza-inspired "bosozoku" girl gang subculture in Japan.
In the anime series Onegai My Melody, Kuromi holds a strong grudge against My Melody originating from small, innocent mistakes My Melo made when they were children. She keeps a notebook which she dubs the "Kuromi Note" filled with over 6,324 instances of times My Melody has wronged her. These events are very minuscule (such as My Melody eating the last pickled onion from Kuromi's school lunch tray) but Kuromi treats them as traumatic events, and vows to get revenge someday. It is implied that these feelings stem from jealousy against My Melody for being "cuter" than she is, and eventually turns to delinquency out of sheer rage and feelings of hopelessness against the world.
After fleeing from Mariland to the human world she meets, partners up with, and falls madly in love with Keiichi Hiiragi, a coldhearted bishōnen violinist. After being chosen by the Dark Power to charge Kuromi's weapon, the Melody Key, through his violin playing, Hiiragi assists her in her quest to collect 100 black notes to summon the Spirit of Dark Power and get revenge on My Melody
