Powers and Abilities
The Tankororin springs forth from untended persimmon trees, where the fruits, if left unpicked on the tree for too long, transform into Tankororin. They appear wearing monk clothing and spreads persimmon seeds wherever they go. Another name for it is Tantankororin (タンタンコロリン), where Mizuki's use of Tankororin became more popularly used.
