The ''Klonoa'' series comprises several TwoAndAHalfD {{Platformer}}s starring the eponymous... ''[[CartoonCreature creature]]''. Exactly what he is remains undefined throughout the games' 15-year history; the only explanation being that he is a 'Dream Traveler'. That is more of a job description; Klonoa's main goal in each of the games -- in which he and his abilities remain virtually the only constant -- is to solve the mysteries of the dream worlds he finds himself inhabiting.

* DolledUpInstallment: The first ''Keroro'' game for the NintendoDS, which is based on the fourth movie, is essentially a quite good ''Klonoa'' clone with more characters. Namco later made ''Keroro RPG'', ''VideoGame/TalesOfHearts'' which is good in its own right.

In addition to the games, a short manga loosely based on them, titled ''Shippuu Tengoku Kaze no Klonoa'' and created by Hiroshi Katou, ran in [=CoroCoro=] Comic for the equivalent of two volumes. Although it borrows many characters, settings, and plot devices from the series, it's largely a gag manga that depicts Klonoa as a well-intentioned fool, trying to solve problems in the most slapstick way possible. Not surprisingly, it never officially made it out of Japan. Also, starting on September 26, 2012, a webcomic titled ''[[http://www.shiftylook.com/comics/klonoa/dreams-and-adventures Klonoa: Dream Traveler of Noctis Sol]]'' began being published on Website/ShiftyLook. Written by Jim Zub and drawn by Hitoshi Ariga (creator of ''Manga/MegaManMegamix'') and Jeffrey "the CHAMBA" Cruz, the comic appears to finally provide insight on Klonoa's adventures after the series, as it depicts characters and elements from more than one of the past games under a single storyline... Or, it did. [[RunningGag In keeping tradition with the franchise]], ''Dream Traveler of Noctis Sol'' was also CutShort due to Website/ShiftyLook shutting down before it could conclude. With that, the future of the franchise was seemingly dead.
