He is regarded by his fellow students as "awesome" and within the first episode, he is shown to be capable of doing amazing athletic skills. According to Kino, he learned the martial art of Jeet Kune Do after watching "Bruce Lee movies".
From the beginning, Kino is a lot more cowardly and lecherous around Phoebe. However, after he receives his Energy Locker from Logan, he quickly develops into a more traditional hero and shows great leadership qualities.
