However, from Dream Champ Tournament onward, his eyes are shown to be orange. He also has long, fluffy ears with the ends resembling maple leaves.

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile

Klonoa was much more feline in appearance, with large, yellow eyes that resembled real cat-like eyes with very little, if any sclera showing and noticeable fangs. His attire consisted of red shorts, a teal green belt, a light blue Pac-Man cap, yellow gloves, a large oversized red dog collar that was worn around his neck and brown and white shoes. He also went around shirtless.

Klonoa’s appearance was changed slightly; his eyes were given a more traditional animated look as well as making him somewhat taller, his belt is now brown instead of teal green, and his oversized red dog collar now lacks details.

Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil

Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil is a platform game developed by Namco. It was self-published by Namco in Japan and North America, and by Sony Computer Entertainment in Europe for the PlayStation 2 in 2001. It is the direct sequel to 1997’s Klonoa: Door to Phantomile.

The game puts players in the role of Klonoa, who, along with a new cast of friends, has stumbled into another adventure, this time to save the world of Lunatea and help unveil the mysteries of the enchanted world. The game features gameplay inspired by the original Klonoa with 2D side-scrolling in a 3D-rendered environment. Klonoa’s equipped weapon is a crystal ring which contains the life of Lolo inside helping him.

A remake of the game and its predecessor Door to Phantomile is planned for a 2022 release as Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series for multiple platforms.

he went through a significant design change. Klonoa now wears a blue t-shirt with a large zipper pin, dark blue shorts with yellow buttons on the sides, a backwards blue cap and red and white hi-top lace-up sneakers with white soles and white shoelaces. He also still wears yellow gloves. His face was altered a bit as well, giving more focus to the fur around his mouth, as well as making his yellow eyes more Sonic-esque while still retaining his cat-like pupils. This is the apperance he would keep through future games, with the exception being the Klonoa Wii remake.

Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol

Klonoa looks older and now wears a red t-shirt similar to his usual blue t-shirt, but with a new blue Pac-Man cap, a large, slightly oversized red collar on his neck, blue shorts, red and white hi-top sneakers, a red belt, and yellow gloves. He was also given a wider body and larger irises. The comic shows his sleeping attire, which is striped pajamas that consist of light blue for his pajama pants and cyan for his pajama shirt.

In the Wii remake of the first game, his attire has, once again, been altered. He now wears a short-sleeved red open jacket with a yellow collar and pale blue sleeve ends, a darker blue Pac-Man cap, red calf-length shorts with a black belt, yellow gloves and brown and white hi-top boots. Much like his Door to Phantomile appearance, he also doesn’t wear anything underneath his short-sleeved red jacket. His irises also appear two-toned (half yellow, half orange).
