-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/ShozoIizuka

* BerserkButton: Here you have a guy who could give [[NiceGuy Klonoa]] a run for his money in the kindness department, but bad mouth his sick son and let's just say you have to be a real beast to be able to out-swear and scare Guntz.
** In the more comedic manga though, he flies into a rage if he's ever mistaken for, or compared to a turtle. Even if he does it himself.
%%* TheBigGuy
* CoolOldGuy: Not that old but is the oldest of the group and a father but that does not stop him from being Cool or Fun.

A foul-mouthed, feline-like purple creature who wears a coat, scarf, and NiceHat. He was once a hunter along with Guntz's father, Butz but killed him at the request of Garlen. He seeks to harvest nightmare for his own purposes.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: In ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'', he seems to have an attraction to Felicia from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''; she finds him despicable.

* JerkassFacade: In ''Klonoa Heroes'' at least. When introduced he steals a flower from Klonoa but took good care of it before giving it back to him because he knew it was rare. He does some Jerk things during the game but all are fueled by his desire to avenge his father or feeling that he is in a situation where he has to do what he has to in order to protect himself and others. When he drops the mask he is shown to deeply care for his friends especially Klonoa. It is also supported by Janga before Guntz attempts to kill him that Butz (Guntz's father) raised him right and to be a hero and would not approve of killing even his enemies.
