Character Profile: Badtz-Maru

Every group has a troublemaker – a mischievous, little firecracker that is brimming with pranks and jokes. Hello Kitty’s group is not an exception to the norm. Meet Badtz-Maru.

Badtz-Maru is a very mischievous, little penguin from Gorgeoustown. He can be very vain for he loves styling his hair. He sees himself as a superhero but what’s weird is he loves collecting posters of movie bad guys. He loves making fun of silly things. Badtz can be a bit vain at times because he looooooves styling his hair.

He dreams of one day being the boss of everything.

If you’ve ever wondered why he’s often called XO? In Japanese,”badtz” (batsu) is term for X or wrong answer. “Maru,” on the other hand, means O or right answer. Badtz Maru, then, not only means “Bad Penguin,” but also “Wrong-Correct,” and is usually shortened to XO.

p.s Today (1st April) is the birthday of Badtz-Maru - Happy Birthday and happy April Fools to Badtz-Maru!
