Poko and Tanchi are Gecko Chan’s two friends when they start school. Poko is a very nonchalant types of boy who is obsessed with his phone. He may have some moments where he acts reckless, rude and obnoxious, but he still cares for Gecko Chan. Tanchi is more sweet yet feisty when needed to be. She always puts Poko in his place, which is funny to read. She is there for Gecko Chan and always has his safety in mind.

Robin aka R-obin


Robin is the villain of this Webtoon. She has always wanted to be evil and have pursuits. Her goal is to take over the world and discover Gecko Chan’s true origins. Although her intents are pure villainous, she sometimes can be clumsy and doesn’t know what’s she’s doing. It’s funny to read as her failed attempts to find Gecko Chan are bringing her down. But don’t let her fool you, she is driven to find Gecko Chan, for her villain name is R-obin!
