Chipple (チップル Chippuru) is a kangaroo character who first appeared in Klonoa: Empire of Dreams. He later appeared in Klonoa Beach Volleyball as a playable character, Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament as one of the competitors, and Klonoa Heroes in a supporting role.
Chipple is a kind, insecure, and sensitive kangaroo. Despite his usual jovial attitude, he doesn't have much confidence in his abilities. One example is when he wins the Beach Volleyball tournament, and believes that Klonoa let him win, and restarts the game over and over again. In Empire of Dreams, its revealed that one of his dreams is to be stronger.
Chipple's Special Attack in Klonoa Beach Volleyball. He charges his fist in mid-air and hits the ball over the net. He then goes to the other side of the court and punches his opponents away.
Klonoa: Empire of Dreams
In this game, Chipple is an amateur-boxer from Ghazzaland. He is the first monster that Klonoa has to defeat, and reverts back upon his defeat. Chipple has no recollection of what he has been doing while he was a monster, and only recalls dreaming that he was very strong... and a red mist.
Klonoa Beach Volleyball
Chipple participates in the Beach Volleyball tournament. If he wins, Chipple believes that Klonoa allowed him to win and restarts the game over and over again until he wins.
Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament
Chipple was one of the competitors who participated in the Dream Champ Tournament.
He lost against Guntz and was turned into a gear by Garlen, but reverts back after Garlen's defeat. Chipple revealed himself to Klonoa after he saved Lolo and thanked him for saving him. He then witnessed Garlen's arrest by Suiryu.
When Klonoa obtained the tournament trophy, Chipple congratulated him on becoming champion and joined him and his friends in celebrating this event as he holds his new trophy.
Chipple is Klonoa's childhood friend residing in Breezegale. He also has younger brothers.
Klonoa Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol
Klonoa, Popka and Huepow stumbled upon Chipple's dream where the kangaroo is a confident fighter apart from his nice and nervous self. However he has no memory of Klonoa, and Chipple mistakes him for his next opponent in his boxing match. The trio had to get around Chipple to get into the dream stream to escape, though Chipple transformed into his monster form when they weren't attempting to fight him. Klonoa, Huepow and Popka managed to jump into the dream stream while avoiding the monster Chipple, not caring if they are disqualified for running away.
