Kuromimi (クロミミ, Kuromimi, Black Ears) is a supporting character in Suikoden. Kuromimi is a kobold warrior who set out to rescue Kobold Village's townspeople from the effects of Kwanda Rosman's Conqueror Rune and later arose to the position of Chief of Kobold Village.
Kuromimi is a young kobold warrior who sought a cure for the kobolds of Kobold Village after they were captured and driven insane by Kwanda Rosman's Conqueror Rune.
Kuromimi travelled to the Village of the Dwarves in hopes of gaining a cure, but was unsuccessful, as the dwarves refused to give Kuromimi any cure. He would later fight with the Toran Liberation Army against the Imperial Army as they sought to thwart Kwanda's efforts to destroy the Village of the Elves.
Following the defeat of Kwanda Rosman in the Battle at Pannu Yakuta Castle and despite being reunited with his now cured mother and brother, Kuromimi asked to join the Toran Liberation Army, saying that even if his people were better, the country was still sick. He would show his compassionate side as he trained and fought alongside Gon, a younger kobold who revered the more experienced Kuromimi.
Once the Gate Rune War ended, Kuromimi returned to Kobold Village, where he became the Village Chief.

- Kuromimi is listed as "Black Ears" in the United States Suikoden manual. This is likely because the words kuro and mimi mean black and ears, respectively, in Japanese.
- Despite giving a speech where he is portrayed as the leader of the kobolds unit, Kuromimi is actually only a subordinate of the kobolds unit; the Commander is the non-kobold Fu Su Lu.
