Takashi Murakami created the characters Kaikai and Kiki 2000, and they are featured prominently in the artist's works. The characters’ names come from the term ‘kaikaikiki’ which was used in the late 16th century to describe the work of the painter Eitoku Kanô who produced paintings that were both ‘powerful and sensitive’.

Kaikai and Kiki have a kawaii (cute) aesthetic, with round eyes and fluttering eyelashes, big grins and rabbit-like ears. Murakami adds the original Japanese lettering that denotes the term ‘kaikaikiki’ to the ears of the cartoon characters. The artist hoped that the characters and their strange appearance would encapsulate the dichotomies represented by the term: things that are bizarre, yet refined, delicate yet bold.
