Actor and Animator.

Christopher Edwin Niosi (born December 31, 1988) commonly known by his online name "Kirbopher" is an American animator and voice actor born in Northport, New York.

Niosi has been a creator and a storyteller his whole life, but since 2004, he has worked in animation, character designing, animation directing, storyboarding, writing, voice acting and voice directing. In 2011, Niosi graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York with a Bachelor’s Degree in traditional animation. He has produced over 100 pieces of Flash animation since that year and continues to create every day. Niosi moved to Los Angeles, California in 2014 to pursue his dream of working in the animation industry. He runs a successful YouTube channel with tons of animated content and works in freelance on the side.

Web Animation

Western Animation

Chris Niosi's works provide examples of:

  • April Fools: His later Brawl Taunts videos with Kira Buckland had them with nothing being done for the entirety of the video. There was also an April Fool's short for TOME.
  • Art Evolution: His original run of TVTome Adventures was a sprite series, before he remade the series as TOME with complete animation.
  • Multi-Animator Project: His NiN10Doh! series is a perfect example of this.
  • Production Posse:
    • Niosi and Kira Buckland are bound to be in each other's works in one way or another.
    • Also had one with LittleKuriboh, considering how often they had at least one role in each other's projects.
  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor:
    • In July 2019, after Niosi confirmed that he voiced Male Byleth via Discord before he was legally allowed to do so, he was dropped from both Heroes and Three Houses and replaced by Zach Aguilar.
    • Around the same time as Niosi's NDA violation, allegations of abuse from former friends and girlfriends came out, and Niosi eventually confirmed the allegations and issued public apologies; this led to his brief break from voice acting and some of his then-ongoing roles were subsequently recast. For example, Julius Euclius on Re:Zero and Arata Mizunashi on Death end re;Quest were recast with Alejandro Saab; Niosi congratulated Saab for the former via Twitter.
  • Self-Deprecation: He described his MartinTaunts cartoon on Newgrounds as "the worst cartoon ever made by humankind".


Video Example(s):


YouTube Upload Without Credit

After Kirbopher (Chris Niosi) and Rina-chan (Kira Buckland) are finished uploading their Flash animation to Newgrounds, Kirb fully anticipates that people are going to upload it to YouTube without crediting either of them. Rina-chan says that nobody would do that, before the two proceed to glare at the audience as a warning.
