Ilulu (イルル, Iruru) is a female dragon who belongs to the Chaos Dragons Faction. Originally, she came to Kobayashi's world to destroy Tohru and then tries to drive Kobayashi away from Tohru. After a change of heart, she begins to live with Kobayashi as her third dragon resident.
Ilulu appears in her human form as a woman of small stature wearing a black cloak with fur. Underneath she wears a black string thong with a matching bra. She has a generous bust and even in her human form, she has dragon-like arms. Like Lucoa and Tohru, her horns are visible in human form.
Her dragon form is yet to be revealed, for her transformation, Ilulu is covered in a mass of flames in a vaguely bestial shape, only to be interrupted by Tohru with her attack.
When she first appeared, Ilulu was a psychotic, war-mongering force with a firm hatred for humanity. She initially was disgusted by the idea that Tohru could coexist with a lowly human, which led her to believe that Kobayashi must've been smitten by her. Her opinion on humanity was so strong, that she was shocked that Kobayashi would risk her life to save her so much so, that she was convinced that she was a trickster.
Once she redeems herself, Ilulu had some difficulties adjusting to human society, despite being roughly the same age as Tohru. As such, Kobayashi often tasks Tohru with babysitting Ilulu. She also was determined to find her purpose in life, even though her initial conclusion was too lewd to put into serious consideration. Despite being thousands of years old, she behaves like a child similarly to Kanna, even though there are a few obvious differences. She doesn't feel any shame when naked in front of others. Hence when she invited Taketo to bathe with her at Kobayashi's apartment.
When she was young, she used to play with humans and was even on good terms with them. But after her parents were killed by humans during an attack, her fellow dragons convinced her that humans were no good. She became sad and stopped playing with them, but she still thinks humans have done nothing wrong. When her parents were still alive, a human child she was friends with made a doll for her. She went back home and showed it to her parents, but her parents didn't like it and destroyed it, which made her very upset. Because of her upbringing Ilulu had a hard time adjusting to human society and trusting them as most of her life she was told humans were bad.
Ilulu makes Tohru a target once she realizes that she is coexisting with Kobayashi. Ilulu arrives at the city with malicious intent and engages in a battle with Tohru. Whilst battling Ilulu, Tohru restrains herself from going all out, lest she would unintentionally destroy the city as well. Ilulu is defeated, and she escapes.
Ilulu reappears again, having spied on Kobayashi and the others for quite some time. When Kobayashi informs Kanna that she would be unable to attend the Parents' Day event at her school, Kanna leaves angrily. Ilulu confronts her and attempts to manipulate her into destroying Kobayashi's workplace, claiming that it was her fault that she wasn't able to make time for Kanna. However, Kanna refuses and leaves Ilulu to ponder why she wouldn't comply.
Once again, Ilulu makes a reappearance, this time to Kobayashi herself. To understand why Kobayashi would live together with dragons, Ilulu concludes that it must be lust. She attempts to seduce Kobayashi with her large breasts to no avail. Angry at being rejected, Ilulu uses the remnants of her powers to transform Kobayashi into a male to prove that she was right. As a result, Kobayashi begins to feel urges towards Tohru and the other well-endowed dragons.
Lastly, when Ilulu was by herself, she is attacked by a Harmony dragon named Clemene and is beaten to near death. Before the final blow could be struck, Kobayashi intervenes, placing herself in danger. Clemene attempts to murder the two; at the nick of time, Tohru arrives and soundly defeats Clemene. Ilulu is taken to Kobayashi's house to be treated for her injuries. Even though she still believed that Kobayashi was trying to trick her in some way, Ilulu slowly began to turn over a new leaf, and eventually learned to love humans again. She later permanently began living in the Kobayashi residence, though to Tohru's chagrin. When Tohru explains to her that she needs to contribute to stay with them, Ilulu decides that she would marry Kobayashi and breed offspring with her. Naturally, Tohru takes offense by that.
Ilulu eventually gets a job at a candy store. Here she meets Taketo, her boss's grandson, who she falls in love with. He usually gets embarrassed around her. When Taketo's friends see him with Ilulu off duty, they ask him if Ilulu and he were going out, he gets embarrassed instantly and stutters no. His friends eventually walk away and Ilulu says that they were going out to do something and he says that that's not what they meant.
Powers and Abilities
As someone whose power is slightly below Tohru, Ilulu is a very powerful dragon. She was able to hold her ground, against Tohru in a battle, exchanging powerful blows, as well as managing to wound her. Despite the latter being above her, in terms of both strength and power. She threatened to destroy the whole city, by unleashing her true form. But, was stopped by Tohru. After her battle, her power has been greatly reduced, that she had to run from Clemene, a dragon from the harmony faction. Ilulu's element is fire, and like Kanna who recharged by absorbing electricity. Ilulu needs to eat flames.
Here are her list for powers:
Flight: On the first episode, Ilulu was shown to be able to make herself fly in mid-air. But, after her powers was greatly decreased after her battle with Tohru, she was never seen flying again. Though, she may just chose not to.
Shapeshifting: Like her fellow dragons, she can change between her human and dragon form. She's the only dragon, whose true form was not shown. As she was interrupted by Tohru, though a bestial large flaming silhouette was shown.
- Sharp claws: In her first appearance, Ilulu has large sharp dragon claws. While the rest of her appearance was human-like.
Immense strength: Like all dragons, her strength exceeds any humans. And was enough to make a gash on Tohru. She easily defeated Takeya in arm wrestling. And unitentionally, broke his arm.
Gender transformation: Ilulu once change Kobayashi's gender to prove that she only feels lust towards Tohru.
Pyrokinesis: As a flame dragon, most of her attacks are based on flames. Unlike Tohru, Ilulu has the ability to produce combustible acid from her mouth instead of pure fire. She can shoot out a volley of fire balls, and has the ability to engulf her body in flames, which she usually does to transform.
Portal opening: She is one of the dragon, who can open portals between earth her homeworld. Though, unlike the rest. She has struggles in maintaning it open for a long time. As her power was reduced after her fight with Tohru, and is still on the verge of recovering them.
She first meets Taketo after she decides to work part-time and is hired by his Grandma. While Taketo was originally suspicious of her, the two eventually grew close that she ranks him after Kobayashi. She affectionately calls him Take and is willing to take a bath with him. She also enjoys teasing him with her body. In chapter 81, it is hinted that Ilulu now has a romantic attachment towards him as she points it feels different from when she was in heat. In chapter 89 when Kanna and Saikawa set up a plan for Taketo and Ilulu to hang out it is made more apparent that Ilulu does have romantic feelings for Taketo. Although since she has only felt similar feelings when she was saved by Kobayashi she is still unsure if what she is feeling is love. However she tends to become more flustered more when interacting with Taketo.
She tried driving her away from Tohru. However, after being saved by Kobayashi and living with her, she's now deeply attached to her and wants to breed with her. Kobayashi also cares for Ilulu and treats her similarly to how she treats Kanna by letting her have the chance to act like a child like she always wanted to. But Kobayashi gets easily frustrated at her large breasts.
She tried to destroy Tohru but failed, due to her overwhelming power compared to hers. Even after Ilulu redeems herself the two were still cautious of each other but were able to put aside their differences for Kobayashi's sake. Like Kanna, Tohru teaches Ilulu how to live with humans.
Ilulu restrained herself to play with Saikawa at first, because she thinks she would be rebuked by Saikawa due to her past delinquent behavior. Contrary to her assumption, Saikawa didn't rebuke her ,and instead Saikawa wanted to be her friends due to her cuteness. Ilulu Eventually start to ease herself up and became friends with Saikawa alongside with Kanna.
- Like how Kanna recharges with electricity, Ilulu eats fire.
- She explains that her breasts are big because they are her flame bags and store a lot of fire in them.It is unknown if it is the same case for the others.
- Although she knows how alluring her breast are, Ilulu doesn't mind it. As she had a delayed and insincere reaction when someone accidentally fondled her breast.
- Ilulu seems to struggle carrying her own breasts, since she is relieved when she rested them on the counter of the candy store.
- If she’s asked about her age, she tells them she is 16.
- Ilulu's appearance in the anime was first revealed on January 15, 2021.
