Kakashi (カカシ) is a character who first appeared in Color Changing Tingle’s Love Balloon Trip. Kakashi was inspired by the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz books. His name directly translates to scarecrow (or possibly “Crow of Fear” when using certain translation services), which is what he is. It is worth noting, however, that most crows seem to have an absence of fear when around Kakashi.
Kakashi is the main protagonist in The Search for Tingle. After Tingle’s surprising kidnapping, Kakashi sets off on a quest to search for his friend.
