Klonoa, what can I say about Klonoa...
I don't even remember how I discovered the little guy - which really bugs me, because I usually do.
I do recall, however, that Dream Champ Tournament was the first Klonoa game I tried, and Door to Phantomille the first one I finished. It's also the game that made me fall in love with the character and the franchise in general.
Aside that, well yeah, Klonoa's cute, that's a given, but I also find his powers and game mechanics pretty original for a platformer. So yeah, I... like Klonoa. Kind of to be expected considering the forum we're in XD
