  • Rilakkuma often appears with his two friends. There is a small child-like white bear called Korilakkuma who often plays pranks on Rilakkuma. His other companion is a yellow chick with attitude named Kiiroitori, who often nags at the two bears.
  • Rilakkuma: Very relaxed and lazy, not particularly energetic with no serious goals
  • Ko-Rilakkuma: His little sister who is very energetic and loves to play pranks on her older brother

Kiiroitori – Supposedly smarter, he’s a huge clean freak and often nags Rilakkuma, though Rilakkuma is not always receptive.


So when we were looking at these characters, we began to wonder why there are certain character archetypes like the ones we see in Rilakkuma in Japanese pop culture. There are actually very generic character relationships between Rilakkuma and the two individually.

  • Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori often do not interact.
korilakkuma and rilakkuma
Korilakkuma and Rilakkuma
  • Two very obvious character archetypes here:
  • A simple character who is very calm, and collected, reflecting someone completely at peace of mind
  • A very energetic, prank-loving character that often serves as a complement to the calmer character
  • Guess who is who?
this actually traces back to japanese kabuki theater
This actually traces back to Japanese Kabuki Theater
  • So what is Kabuki? It is a particular stylized version of classical Japanese dance-drama, often recognized by its use of elaborate make-up by its performers.
  • Within Kabuki theater, there are often protagonist and antagonist roles, into which the main characters often get divided.
  • Wagoto/ Rilakkuma: A calmer, very relaxed character who is only minutely bothered by the Aragoto’s ploys. In Kabuki theater, the Wagoto often uses more subdued and realistic expressions
  • Aragoto/ Korilakkuma: A very gruff, hot headed and aggressive character who often has friendly conflicts with the wagoto ; In Kabuki theater, this style of kabuki often uses exaggerated kata (forms or movements) alongside flashy costumes and makeup
example samurai champloo
Example : Samurai Champloo

Aragoto: Mugen

Wagoto: Jin

other stereotypes in kabuki theater
Other Stereotypes in Kabuki theater
  • Jitsugoto – Old man who appears in story to solve problems and frequently functions as a mentor
  • wakaonnagata - youthful princesses, courtesans, and other damsels in likely distress
  • kashagata - samurai wives, often good with a sword or a frying pan
  • Akuba - archetypal bad-girls, with street smarts, tattoos, and sass)
  • Any familiar archetypes to modern pop culture?

Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori
  • Two very obvious character archetypes here:
  • A simple character who is very calm, and collected, reflecting someone completely at peace of mind
  • A smarter and more reasonable character who often verbally abuses the simpler character
  • Guess who is who?
this actually could trace back to kabuki theater but also owarai comedy
This actually could trace back to Kabuki Theater, but also Owarai comedy!
  • Owarai is a basic name for the traditional Japanese comedy.
  • Rilakkuma and Kiiroitori functioned as an unofficial ‘comedy’ combination within Owarai called Boke and tsukkomi

Boke and tsukkomi

  • The boke is the slow-acting character very often prone to misinterpretation and forgetfulness, as Rilakkuma is sometimes characterized to be.
  • Tsukkomi refers to the role the second comedian plays in "butting in“ and scolding the boke for his actions, often receiving repercussions.
  • Comparable to the straight-man, funny-guy act of Western audiences!
other owarai terms
Other Owarai Terms
  • Geinin – Often translated to be a performer or artisan; most comedians known as owarai geinin
  • Monomane – character imitation skills, many owarai geinin have become quite popular through their ability to imitate other famous Japanese people
  • Kire – Role taken by owarai geinin which focuses on expressing fake short-tempered anger
  • Shimoneta – Sets of jokes that are typically dirty used by Japanese comedians
cosplay craze
Cosplay Craze
  • “Cosplay” is the combination of “costume” and “play”
  • Is a way for fan’s to get together and celebrate their favorite characters
  • The fad originated in Japan but has developed a substantial foundation in other countries
  • Japanese cosplay is unique however.
japanese cosplay and theatrical ties
Japanese Cosplay and Theatrical Ties
  • In Japan, cosplay goes beyond having a cool costume
  • When fans put on their costume and make-up, they became the character
  • This immersion into the character reaches a level of free-lancing acting

Not only that, but fans are able to show off their craftsmanship

  • Most costumes are handmade: sewing/design, make-up, carpentry
  • All of this reflects influence of art in Japanese culture.
  • リラックマ is described as a stuff bear with a zipper running down his back
    • Means that he’s actually in a bear costume!
  • Many scenes depict リラックマ waiting for his many identical costumes to dry
  • Kaoru frequently dresses him in sheep costumes as well.
  • Korilakkuma also appears as a cow and a rabbit
  • In the zodiac, the cow and the rabbit represent certain characteristics
  • The ox (cow) – strong, steadfast, dependable, faithful, quick to anger
  • The rabbit – modest, quick, delicate senses
what could this mean
What could this mean???
  • The ox (cow) – Dependable, ambitious, calm, methodical, born leader, patient, hardworking, conventional, steady, modest, logical, resolute, tenacious. Can be stubborn, dogmatic, hot-tempered, narrow-minded, materialistic, rigid, demanding.
  • The rabbit –Gracious, good friend, kind, sensitive, soft-spoken, amiable, elegant, reserved, cautious, artistic, thorough, tender, self-assured, shy, astute, compassionate, lucky, flexible. Can be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic, stubborn.
  • The sheep –Righteous, sincere, sympathetic, mild-mannered, shy, artistic, creative, gentle, compassionate, understanding, mothering, peaceful, generous, seeks security. Can be moody, indecisive, over-passive, worrier, pessimistic, over-sensitive, complainer, weak-willed.
  • Maybe these characters are putting on costumes that reflect the personality traits that they lack
