California Sea Lion is a Friend that appears as one of the minor characters of Kemono Friends 2.


California Sea Lion is very playful and acrobatic, but will often ask for a reward after performing a trick in front of an audience. If not given a reward, she will often pressure the person until she gets a reward. She is also very picky about the rewards she wants to receive after performing certain tasks.

Role in the Plot

Episode 3: Creatures of the Sea

California Sea Lion is first seen playing a ball with Common Bottlenose Dolphin, juggling with the ball, and passes praises and a Japari Bun to each other in turn. She is bored by the repetitive play and wishes for a missing element that will brighten it, only to be interrupted by Kyururu, Serval and Caracal. The pair of marine Friends greet and wave at the trio and asks for rewards from them. After listening to Kyururu's wish to find the scene in the sketchbook, the two marine Friends row the boat the trio have boarded to a spot in the sea, and dive with Kyururu to explore the sunken performance stage underneath. She advises Common Bottlenose Dolphin and Kyururu to return to the boat quickly since the sea "has a bad mood".

However, once back on the boat, the pair of marine Friends slacks off playing with the ball. They decided they would only row the trio back ashore after getting a reward for bringing them to the stage. California Sea Lion cheers on when Common Bottlenose Dolphin plays with Kyururu's toy. She is enticed by the life buoys thrown at her by Kyururu and perfectly catches all of them. Afterwards, she thanks the trio for giving them a warm nostalgic feeling that was what she felt was missing from her play with Common Bottlenose Dolphin, and rows the boat on the return trip with Common Bottlenose Dolphin. As the sun sets, the pair receives the gift of them performing in a full stage, and waves as the trio leave. At the end of the day, California Sea Lion leaves more games with the toy Kyururu left for the time when the sea's "mood" improves.

California Sea Lion's animal talk

She also appears in one of this episode's animal talk segments.

Episode 11: The Ocean's Mood

She and Common Bottlenose Dolphin save Kyururu from drowning in the ocean. She helps explain when they got attacked by Celliens that looked like them that came from Kyururu's drawing, and that Northern White-Faced Owl explained how Kyururu's attachment to his Friends and the drawings made the Celliens so strong. She tells the trio that the ocean's worsening mood indicates that Celliens might appear at the hotel as well. She and Common Bottlenose Dolphin return to the ocean and tell the trio to call them if anything happens.

Episode 12: I'm Home

She appears in the water with Common Bottlenose Dolphin to warn the Friends at the hotel about the increasing activity of the undersea volcano and the ocean's mood worsening, and that it could lead to more Celliens. Later, they meet with Kaban to report their findings from the ocean. She asks Kaban if they've recovered Kyururu's drawing yet. After Siberian Tiger appears on the roof of the boat, California Sea Lion and Common Bottlenose Dolphin appear, telling Kyururu to ride them back to the hotel, but are shocked when his plan is to ride the boat with Kaban back to the hotel instead.


Common Bottlenose Dolphin

They play a game involving passing a ball back and forth to satisfy their boredom, and often ask for rewards after performing a task. They explore the ocean together.
