|“||Don't mess with the monk!||”|
Kimiko Tohomiko is a Xiaolin Warrior and the current Xiaolin Dragon of Fire. She made her first appearance in the debut episode of Xiaolin Showdown, "The Journey of a Thousand Miles" as one of the new students that arrived at the Xiaolin Temple and chosen to become the next generation of Xiaolin Dragons.
She also made her first appearance in the debut episode of Xiaolin Chronicles, "New Monk on the Block" as recently ascending to the rank of Shoku Warrior and being tasked to select a new student to train together with the rest of her teammates.
Kimiko is the daughter of Toshiro Tohomiko, the head of Tohomiko Electronics, a prominent Japanese videogame company in Tokyo, Japan. As a result, she is able to get all the latest games and gadgets. However, as a young child, she practically needed to beg her father to buy her clothes. She is extremely tech-savvy, as she has demonstrated on numerous occasions. She keeps up with the wild fashion trends of Tokyo Street Style (Harajuku Style) and the latest e-gadgets so she can stay in touch with her friends and family back in Japan. She uses different clothes and hairstyles on a daily basis, but her signature hairstyle is her black hair, tied into two pigtails, along with light red or bright pink cheeks and red lips. Kimiko rarely, if ever, goes anywhere without her cell phone.
Despite being a docile and rational person most of the time, befitting her element, Kimiko possesses a hot-head fiery temper. Often letting her pride and anger blur her better judgment, Kimiko sometimes takes unnecessary risks to prove herself. Kimiko is a kind and sweet girl; however, she gets furious easily. She doesn't give up easily, either, and is able to take some extreme attitudes when not controlled. She is also a good friend; however, she can sometimes control the boys of the group because she is the only girl. When she turned evil with the Yang Yo-Yo, she had bright red eyes. Kimiko has also shown to share a strong bond with her father.
Kimiko is a short, thin, pale Japanese girl. She uses different clothes and hairstyles every day, but her signature hairstyle is a black ponytail. When wearing her Xiaolin robes she appears to be wearing tights/pantyhose, since her legs have a lighter skin tone than the rest of her light skin. She has light red/bright pink rosy cheeks, red lips and, despite being Japanese, baby blue eyes. She has mid-arched feet with short stubby toes and wide heels. She would later go on to dump the pigtails for a ponytail.
Dragon Powers and Abilities
- Fire Manipulation: As the Dragon of Fire, Kimiko had the power to generate, control and/or absorb fire as well as manipulate it.
- Limited Lightning Generation: She was briefly seen using lightning to attack Muffin Face.
In addition to her elemental abilities and martial arts skills, she had other superhuman attributes such as:
- Superhuman Strength: She was also super-humanly strong, capable of breaking through stones and steel with one single kick or her bare hands.
- Enhanced Speed: She could move and run to nearly superhuman speed.
- Superhuman Reflexes: Her reflexes were enhanced to nearly superhuman levels.
- Superhuman Agility: She had agility beyond that of a normal human being. She could dodge attacks, swing from things easily, do back-flips and numerous other gymnastic, athletic and martial movements with little effort.
- Superhuman Durability: She had proven to have superhuman durability.
- Superhuman Equilibrium: Kimiko has shown the ability to achieve a state of perfect equilibrium when standing on a "relatively giant" leaf with one foot.
- Kimiko's Xiaolin Apprentice move
- Judolette Flip Fire: She jumped and flipped around with her feet and hands enveloped in fire. She could generate powerful streams of fire in the air that would destroy her enemies. She could also flip and then throw fireballs.
- Kimiko's Wudai Warrior move
- Wudai Mars Fire: This was almost always Kimiko throwing fireballs at her foes or blasting a long string of fire from her hands and feet.
- Wudai Fire Shield: This was a defensive movement that created a force field out of fire capable of withstanding an oil depot explosion.
- Kimiko's Shoku Warrior move
- Shoku Mars Fire: After reaching the level of Shoku Warrior, Kimiko was able to use Shoku Mars. With this, she can engulf her entire body into flames and launch fireballs directly from her hands and feet.
- Master Martial Artist: Like all the other monks she became a Shoku warrior, capable of defeating several enemies at once.
- Master Hacker: She possessed great skills in computer hacking, capable of hacking several computer systems.
- Shen Gong Wu: The Shen Gong Wu she used most often was the Star Hanabi, which, when combined with her element, became a flaming shuriken, or unleashes a large blast of fire.
- Wudai Weapon: Her Wudai Weapon was called the Arrow Sparrow and consisted of a pouch full of an unlimited supply of sparrow-shaped darts that burst into flames when thrown.
- Elemental Shen Gong Wu: Her main elemental Shen Gong Wu was called the Cat's Eye Draco, which she could use along with other Shen Gong Wu to increase their power. When the Cat's Eye Draco was combined with her Wudai weapon, the Arrow Sparrow could burn many enemies at once.
Because she was the only girl in the Xiaolin Temple, Kimiko was often viewed as inferior by her friends, especially Omi whose old-fashioned view of women truly annoyed her. She was usually the one who calmed and controlled the boys when they started to fight. At times her anger got the best of her and she could get easily distracted by annoying or offensive comments which resulted in her failing. Kimiko relied heavily on her technology and hardly went anywhere without it (mostly her cellphone).
Toshiro Tohomiko was Kimiko's father. He owned Tohomiko Electronics which made Kimiko extremely tech-savvy. Kimiko and the boys went to Tokyo a second time to look for the Zing-Zom Bone and met Kimiko's dad, Toshiro. PandaBubba was his new business partner (Mr. Tohomiko didn't know who he really was), but when he found out, he was turned into a zombie and PandaBubba took over the company. Kimiko cried because she was scared and worried about her father, but in the end, they saved him.
Prior to his debut in The Return of PandaBubba, Kimiko phoned him to ask for help when the monks needed to get inside a sacred temple but it was only on the above mentioned second time her friends learned his name and occupation.
Tomoko Tohomiko is Kimiko's elder sister (exclusive to Xiaolin Chronicles) that is mostly known as being a spy. During Kimiko's childhood, she rarely spent time with her. She is very skeptical when she first appears. Tomoko did manage to break through and they recovered their sisterly bond that was lost. Kimiko was heartbroken when Jack Spicer reveals some evidence when she had given a fake Shen Gong Wu to Chase Young. On her birthday all is forgiven when she receives a gift of trust from her.
Omi was one of the monks at the temple. They were very friendly from day one. A trait about Omi that was shown to annoy Kimiko quite a bit was that he thinks that girls are not as good as boys, though this stems from his isolated life until meeting her. She is warm and caring towards him (most of the time) as he is to her. They are usually paired together for double attacks or the Dragon X Kumei Formation possibly because they are both small. Omi enjoys Kimiko's hugs, whether it is because he has a crush on Kimiko or simply enjoys hugs from a female (as he has never gotten them up until Kimiko arrived at the temple) is unknown.
Clay was the cowboy monk at the temple. He and Kimiko seem to be close and get along well, though it was revealed that Kimiko found his "lame-o down-home sayings" extremely annoying and that Clay thought Kimiko "got angrier than a cat in a hot tub of water" they rarely have altercations and seem to respect and (somewhat) understand each other. In the episode The Black Vipers, when doing a test, Clay caught Kimiko in his arm, and she made a dreamy sigh, hinting she might have an attraction to him.
Raimundo was another monk at the temple. Raimundo is a little over-confident and that would get on Kimiko's nerves, but he was very protective of Kimiko and watched out for her most of the time. They are very supportive of each other throughout the series, Raimundo was especially supportive of her in Tangled Web. Kimiko was especially supportive of Raimundo in Citadel of Doom and Time After Time: Part II when he became a Shoku Warrior. They also have shown some affection toward each other; Kimiko kissed Raimundo twice on the cheek, though they weren't for romantic reasons, the first was because Raimundo saved them from Wuya, and the second was a congratulation on becoming the leader.
Keiko is Kimiko's friend in Tokyo. Not much is known about her as she never appears in the series. She's likely been friends with Kimiko for some time as the girl talks to her on the phone quite often in the first season, calling her whenever something noteworthy is happening. Likewise, Keiko might be the person most often to call Kimiko's cellphone at inopportune times as mocked by Raimundo.
- Kimiko Tohomiko is voiced By Grey DeLisle, who is best known for doing the voice of Vicky from the Nickelodeon cartoon, "The Fairly Oddparents!"
- One of Kimiko's hairstyles is similar to that of Kimi from Rugrats.
