Kuromi (クロミ, Kuromi) is My Melody's rival, who 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's appearance is also similar to those of cartoon characters from the 1990s such as Pichu from Pokémon. Kuromi has become a popular character for the punk, scene, and goth crowds due to her appearance.
Although Kuromi may be devilish, tough and tomboyish, she's 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 colors are black and hot pink. Her favorite food is shallots, all kinds of meat, and in recent Kuromi merchandise cherries have been shown. Since Kuromi enjoys cooking, she is mostly into meaty food; especially shallots as her favourite.
Kuromi is the friendly self-proclaimed counterpart to My Melody. Although she has warm feelings, her feelings are more inclined to rivalry too.
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.
In the anime series Onegai My Melody, Kuromi meets, partners up with, and even falls madly in love with Keiichi Hiiragi, a popular high school boy in Yumegaoka. They team up in Kuromi's quest to gather 100 black notes to summon the Spirit of Dark Power.
