Hi Chuckie. Well I guess washing Wawa wasn't the best idea. You know there is still a lot about you I don't know yet. Like your favorite sandwiches or your favorite games or the songs or stories you like. Those things may take a while. What I do know is I love you very much. I hope that will do 'til I get the other things sorted out.

Kira in All Grown Up!

Kirley "Kira" Watanabe-Finster (b. circa 1959-1964) is Chas Finster's new wife, Kimi's mother, and Chuckie's step-mother. The character was introduced in the second Rugrats film, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, along with Kimi and Fifi. Kira met and fell in love with both Chas and Chuckie when the Rugrats were visiting EurorReptarland. Because of this, Chas and her got married, and Kira, Kimi, and Fifi, who used to live in Paris, moved to America to live with Chas. Not only is Kira Chuckie's new mother, she is also the co-owner of a coffee shop known as the Java Lava Coffee House with Chas. Kira is very nice and knows a lot about babies. She is voiced by Julia Kato.


Kira is Kimi's mother. She became Chas's second wife, and most importantly, Chuckie's new mother in Rugrats In Paris: The Movie, the series' 2nd film. She is a very motherly and beautiful woman, which Chas quickly noticed.

She worked as Coco LaBouche's secretary at the EuroReptarland theme park, but apparently became unemployed after marrying Chas, and moving to America. Her first American job, as revealed in The Fun Way Day, was as co-owner of the Java Lava Coffee House, with Chas co-owning as well. They buy the coffee shop in a previous episode, Sweet Dreams.

In Finsterella, Kira legally adopts Chuckie as her son while Chas legally adopts Kimi as his daughter. Kira and Chas celebrate their first Easter together in Bow Wow Wedding Vows, celebrate their first Christmas together in Babies In Toyland, and celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary in the All Grown Up! episode Petition This!, which Kimi and Chuckie throw a party for them.


Kira is a Japanese woman with peach colored skin and a pair of white eyes with black pupils, blue eyeshadow, and lipstick. She has black hair in an asymmetrical hair cut, and wears a long yellow dress, purple glasses, brown shoes, and a white, cuffed, long-sleeved polo shirt.


Kira appears in most of the later seasons of Rugrats. Her first appearance was in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, while her last appearance was in the All Grown Up! episode Petition This!.

  • Kira adopts Chuckie as her son in Finsterella. In a legal sense, that technically makes her Chuckie's mother and not just his stepmother.
    • Also in that episode, Chas adopted Kimi as his daughter. In the same sense as Kira's, that technically makes him Kimi's father and not just his stepfather.
      • Since Chas and Kira adopt Kimi and Chuckie as their children, respectively, in a legal sense, that technically makes them siblings and not just stepsiblings.
  • Some of the terms of endearment Kira has for Chas are "Koibito" and "Koibito Doll". Koibito is a Japanese saying used only if you truly mean the other is your love, and is only said to a life long partner. Kira also calls him "Anata", which means 'darling' in Japanese. It is often used by loving wives to their husbands when they want something.
  • Despite being small in stature, Kira's shown to be very strong. One instance being in the episode Baby Sale, when another woman snatches the baby jumper she was going to buy for Kimi. Kira states "I believe I saw that first", and gets into a fight with the other mother, eventually forcing her to drop the clothing by pinning her arm behind her back.
  • Kira has also been heard using "Aiji" when talking to Kimi and Chuckie. Aiji is a Japanese word meaning 'beloved child'. She's also been heard calling her daughter "Kimi-chan".

  • In the Rugrats book Babies in Reptarland, it is revealed that Chas and Kira got married six months after the trip to Paris.
