Ichika Kaneki (金木 一花, Kaneki Ichika) is the daughter of Ken Kaneki and Touka Kirishima who appears in the finale of Tokyo Ghoul:re.

Appearance

Ichika has mid-length hair of a light color, with darker roots at the crown, resembling her father's hairstyle during his time as Haise Sasaki. Like most children, she has a rounded face with large, violet-colored eyes, and is usually smiling. Her kakugan is in her left eye like her father's.

Personality

Ichika has a very typical personality for a little girl; outgoing and very energetic.

Plot

Ichika was conceived prior to her parents' and Goat's time hiding in the 24th Ward. Initially, it was unknown whether it was possible for the baby to survive. After the destruction of Dragon and rebuilding of Tokyo, she was finally born and is treated with great affection by everyone around her.

When the company came to visit the Kaneki household, she was busy braiding and tying ribbons into her great-uncle Renji Yomo's hair. She enthusiastically greeted everyone, and briefly played with them before they meet with her parents.[2]

Sometime later, she goes on a walk with her parents and is swung around by her father.[2]

Powers and Abilities

Ichika is a natural-born one-eyed ghoul. It is not known whether she will inherit the abilities of her parents. Like other natural-born hybrids, she is able to consume human food.

Relationships

Ken Kaneki and Touka Kirishima

Ichika is very close to her parents. Touka possesses a maternal attitude towards her daughter, even going as far as eating human food to provide nutrition before giving birth in order to prevent her body from consuming the child.

Renji Yomo

Renji makes a point to spend time with his great-niece, permitting her to do embarrassing things like putting ribbons into his hair.

Shuu Tsukiyama

Tsukiyama spoils her, calling her a princess and praising her as adorable. Ichika seems to like him quite a bit, running to greet him when he visits.

Tooru Mutsuki

Mutsuki sends fruit as a gift for Ichika. As this is an expensive gift, it indicates a fondness for her.

Ayato Kirishima

Ayato visits his niece, also playing with her by making funny faces.

Etymology

  • The name Ichika means "one" (一) (ichi) and "flower, blossom" (花) (ka).
  • Ichika's surname Kaneki means "money, gold" (金) (kane) and "tree, wood" (木) (ki).

Trivia

  • Ichika's favorite foods are apples and Yoriko Kuroiwa's bread.[1]
  • Ichika is the only one-eyed ghoul confirmed to be conceived naturally from a male artificial one-eyed ghoul (formerly human) and pure-born female ghoul.
  • Despite the fact that Kaniki's white hair shouldn't be genetic, ghoul hair is affected by Rc cell activity, which can be passed down.
    • She also has black roots in her white hair, similar to Kaneki at the beginning of :re. This means her hair could eventually become entirely black like her father's would .
