Kish (キッシュ, Kisshu) is one of the main antagonists in Tokyo Mew Mew. Fan subs have named him Kisshu in unaltered transliteration. His name is Dren in Mew Mew Power. Kish is one of the first aliens to come to the Earth, and is the first one to appear before a Mew Mew.
Kish is a carefree, playful, clever, optimistic and a rather open minded fellow. Although that is somewhat hidden by his bloodlustful intentions for humans. He enjoys torturing, and in a rather cruel sense playing with his opponents for his amusement. He is very sadistic and enjoys seeing humans in pain; physically and mentally. He is seen as a bit fun-loving such as when he tries to make sure that everything that goes his way amuses him; an example considering his enemies his toys. He is also intelligent seeing as how when he makes any mistake he will find a way to make it benifit him. Kish is very possessive over anything of his, and that includes people. He has a temper and he doesn't have much control when angered. He would even attack one of his comrades out of sheer annoyance at times. Even with his rather cruel personality traits he does do the things he does for his goal of helping his people, his friends, and his family. He hates humans for what they have done to the Earth and would honestly take immense pleasure in killing one. He is cruel and rather a figure of dangers to strangers, but he can't help but be happy optimistic figure to the people he is close to. (Even if they won't admit it).
Even as Ichigo hates him, she still cares for him if he's in a horrible situation.
Kish's race (Called Cyniclons in Mew Mew Power) is distant relative of humans since they are both originally from Earth, quite possibly his race is an earlier form of human kind, so he has the normal characteristics as his people that are similar to humans. His most notable characteristic is his golden eyes with orange hues with small slits that stick out more than anything due to their brightness. He has rounded, pointed elf-like ears that all people of his species have, and are a quite noticeable characteristic. He has two small fangs which are arguably for devouring food easier. He has very pale skin from being underground the most of his life. His dark green hair is styled rather short in the back, but he keeps the hair infront of his ears styled with red bondages that some aliens use with their hair. Kish seems to have the body size of a human male around 13 years old that is notably skinny due to lack of food on his planet. His real age is never revealed. He dresses in clothes obviously native to his race. He wears a black shirt that if not for the poofy sleeves that barely touch his shoulder and the high collar with red stitching could be considered a T-shirt. The shirt only goes halfway down his chest, and shows his mid-section. The shirt could possibly fly off due to it being large if not for the red bands on his sleves that tightly stay on his skin. The shirt is almost always seen not even touching his chest it is so large, and only touches his skin due to gravity if he is laying down. It appears that a brown V-neck shirt is stitched onto the black shirt, and as it is seen when the inside of his shirt is showing, it is quite possible that the black shirt only goes down to the length that is shown from the brown shirt's V-neck. Kish wears black baggy pants that end at mid-thigh. It appears that the pants are only kept up by the red band around his waist and by the red band around his mid-thighs. He wears a brown loincloth that covers the front and back of his body that is held there by the red waist band. On the back of his pants are two long and skinny cloths that flow around in the air. If straightened out the cloths would be larger than his legs. Kish also wears a pair of dark red bandages that wrapped around his wrists and around his legs. He wears a pair of dark boots that are kept on by three straps on each of them.
Most fans find him very attractive which explains why he is a popular character in Tokyo Mew Mew.
Kish's goal in the Tokyo Mew Mew series is that he wants to reclaim his home planet for his loved ones (and himself) since they were starting to die off.Kish is the first of the aliens to come to earth along with Pai, and Tart. He comes to Earth in order to help reclaim it. His people were originally from Earth, and were forced to flee their planet. When he and the other aliens ended up on a planet with an inhospitable surface environment he was forced to live underground because of the sandstorms and high temperatures. He never forgot about Earth, and when he returns he's disgusted by the human inhabitants, as he feels that humans are destroying the planet. He uses chimera animas to accelerate the humans' environmental damage to destroy all life, and reclaim the planet. As a child he is seen as rather sad, but it appears he hides it with his cheerful personality so it didn't bother anyone close to him. In Mew Mew Power though his goals are changed to claiming the planet Earth since his planet, that he has always lived on, is extremely poor. His goals are less just in Mew Mew Power and are considered out of jealousy.
He is introduced at the end of the first volume of the manga and in the 2nd episode. In the 2nd episode was his real introduction, but only his eyes were seen. In his first full body appearance he was watching the movement of Ichigo in the search of the "ghost" at a junior high school. He speaks to Ichigo at the end of the episode saying that he was "rather fond of her(Ichigo)". Then he jumps down onto Ichigo and kisses her; unknowingly stealing her first kiss. He leaves her after saying "Thanks for the kiss." and the episode ended with her standing there stunned. From then on Kish has been seen using Chimera Animas for the beginning of the series. Kish very much enjoys his battles with the Mew Mews and treats it as a game. He has said before that all of the Mew Mews are rather "cute", but he finds Mew Ichigo the "cutest".
Kish trusts very few people, seeing as how he hates humans its only natural he only trusts (sometimes barely) his teammates Pai and Tart. He doesn't trust Deep Blue very much at all really even though Deep Blue claims for the best. He sometimes wonders if Deep Blue is even trustworthy of saving their planet, and is more confident in his own orders then Deep Blue's.
Throughout the series, Kish is shown to developing increasing stronger feelings for Ichigo. He keeps harassing Ichigo, and even calls her honey and kitty cat. He would do anything to gain Ichigo's love. He even tried several times to kill her crush, Masaya Aoyama, out of his jealousy that Ichigo liked Masaya more and his possessiveness. He first regarded her as an "interesting toy" that he'd kill for his leader. Slowly, but ever surely, as he got to see her more and more it became an obbsession. Eventually he kidnaps Ichigo and confesses his love, then demands she cry because he loves seeing her frightened. This made many fans wonder what his real feeling were and thought he wasn't in love. Towards the end of the series, Kish again declares his love to Ichigo, but when she rejects him he attacks her and begins strangling her. He starts crying and asked how he can make her love him before eventually releasing her. After Deep Blue is awakened, Kish turns against him to protect Ichigo and is killed. After Deep Blue's defeat, Kish is revived with the power of the mew aqua. He returns with the others to their planet, after wishing Ichigo happiness and stealing one last kiss. This cleared that his feelings are indeed true and not just his obsession.
Kish is seen using Chimera Animas for almost the entire first half of the series instead of actually using his skills.
Dragon SwordsEditKish uses two blades that are remarkably similar to daggers. He is capable of using them in both of his hands and is very well trained using them. His is capable of using lightning along with the swords and can eletrocute.
Kish uses bursts of energy to sometimes startle an opponent, or will use to destroy objects in his way (Or people).
