* In ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', Kiawe provides you with a spot-the-differences test. They begin normal enough, but start getting increasingly absurd and obvious (such as an unfamiliar man staring at the camera five inches away from it). Regardless of how easy they are, Kiawe always reacts with astonishment and disbelief that you got them right. Later appearances establish this as his defining character trait: He is calm and serious under normal circumstances but is easily impressed and awed.

They begin normal enough, but start getting increasingly absurd and obvious (such as the difference being an unfamiliar man staring at the camera five inches away from it). Regardless of how easy they are, Kiawe always reacts with astonishment and disbelief that you got them right. Later appearances establish this as his defining character trait: He is calm and serious under normal circumstances but is easily impressed and awed. He also freaks out over spicy food, ironic considering he specializes in the Fire-type.
