Kimiko "Kimi" Watanabe-Finster is a fictional character in the animated television series Rugrats and its spin-off All Grown Up!. She first appeared in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie in 2000. She is the sister of Chuckie Finster; born in a Japanese family, she was the last character to be introduced to the Rugrats character list. Her mother, Kira, married Chas Finster (the father of Chuckie). Kimi became a regular character on the show after Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. She later appeared in the spin-off series All Grown Up!, and in the second and third Rugrats films. She was voiced by Dionne Quan.

Kimi in All Grown Up!.


Kimi was the last addition to the cast of Rugrats, making her first appearance in the second Rugrats movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. She is very joyful and brave. She has black hair, tied up in three pigtails on top of her head, wears a pink t-shirt, yellow overall dress with a purple cat in the center, a diaper underneath (like Lil), and purple cowboy boots.

She was introduced as Chuckie's new sister, after her mother, Kira Finster, married Chuckie's father Charles, also known as Chas. This marriage and the changes it brought to the Finster family were used in the series to teach the young viewers, by demonstration, about adapting to such drastic changes caused by remarriage.

In Rugrats, the one-and-a-half year old Kimi was portrayed as very brave and often stumbled into dangerous situations she was too naive to recognize, often bringing her new brother, Chuckie Finster, along, which he didn't like very much. He described her as "another Tommy" not too long upon meeting her. She is just as adventurous as Tommy and cares for her friends. Unlike Tommy, she often takes action first and thinks later. She laughs in the eye of danger and is always looking for an adventure. In All Grown Up!, it is revealed that she has a crush on Tommy.


Kimi has black hair tied into three pigtails, which in the episode Starstruck is seen as cute, as said by a movie star. She wears a yellow dress with a blue cat on it and throughout the series she has a pink shirt inside. She has purple cowgirl boots, and wears a diaper underneath because she is not potty-trained.


Kira Finster - Kira is Kimi's mother.

Hiro Watanabe - Hiro Watanabe is Kimi's bilogical father. Kimi knows about his whereabouts in Japan and Hiro comes to visit her in Trading Places.

Chuckie tries to protect her, when he can, from getting hurt or in danger. In All Grown Up! Chuckie is still somewhat protective of Kimi as he tries to protect her from Z . Chuckie also got upset when the gang found Tommy and Kimi's intials carved in the wall in TP+KF as he tells Tommy that it wasn't cool to mack on his best friend's sister. The intials carved into the wall caused Tommy and Chuckie to not only break off their friendship but for Chuckie to be suspicious of Kimi.

Tommy Pickles - Tommy and Kimi met in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie when Kira brought her along. Kimi and Tommy both have adventrous personalities and are always ready for an adventure.

  • Chas legally adopts Kimi as his daughter in Finsterella while Kira legally adopts Chuckie as her son. In legal sense, that technically makes Chuckie and Kimi siblings and not just stepsiblings.
  • Kimi is the only Rugrat to never have the camera viewed from inside her mouth, not even in All Grown Up!. Though she is seen looking at the camera in someone's mouth, such as Fluffy in Cat Got Your Tongue?, Harold in Angelica's Assistant, and an imaginary snow leopard in The Bravliest Baby.
  • Kimi only cries in Cuddle Bunny, The Big Sneeze, Cynthia Comes Alive, Who's Taffy? and Three Jacks and a Beanstalk; she cries on her own in The Big Sneeze and Cynthia Comes Alive.
  • Kimi has only gotten her diaper changed in two episodes: Finsterella and Daddy's Little Helpers.
  • Although there is no episode for it, Kimi has been seen as a 3-year-old and possibly a 7-8 year old in the All Grown Up! episode Truth or Consequences.
  • Kimi is the only Rugrat toddler not to be seen as a "baby baby" (meaning a baby between the ages of birth up to age one to the Rugrats, who refer themselves as "big babies")  and is the only baby not to tell how she walked for the first time.
  • The original father of Kimi is Hiro Watanabe.
  • Kimi is the only main character to have a half-sister.
  • The episode Kimi Takes The Cake was aired production wise on October 5, 2002, therefore Kimi's birthday is presumed to be that day. It also possible this is Kimi's birthday as the episode focused on a Haunted looking castle that Taffy was performing at, which could give hint that Kimi's birthday takes place around Halloween. However, the episode didn't premeire in the US until June 8th, 2004 which could also be Kimi's presumed birthday.
  • Kimi is last Rugrat to be added to the cast.
  • Because of her Japanese Heritage Kimi's full name would be Kimiko as Kimi is short for the name in Japanese.
  • Though there was no episode for it, Kimi was seen being potty trained. It was picture seen in the All Grown Up! episode Petition This!.
  • She is half-Japanese and half-French.
  • Kimi is similar to Yumi Ishiyama from Code Lyoko. They are both Japanese immigrants and their families are from Japan altough Yumi's parents aren't french and she doesn't have a biological father and a sister, but she has a brother.
