Jump to navigationJump to search


Sanrio Wiki is an open-content encyclopedia about the Japanese company Sanrio, its subsidiaries and affiliates. Sanrio is a lifestyle brand that aims to spread heart-felt emotion under the philosophy "Small Gift Big Smile".

Sanrio produces and licenses gifts of many kinds. It also works in the publishing and animation industries and runs a franchise of KFC in Saitama, Japan.

Sanrio is loved for its many 'cute' original characters, such as the popular Hello Kitty and other lesser known characters such as My Melody, Cinnamoroll, Keroppi and Hangyodon. It owns rights to the Mr. Men and Peanuts franchises in Japan.


Sanrio Wiki is a newly founded project that was started on April 14, 2015 by Torchickens (Talk). It is hosted on the wiki-farm Shout Wiki, where anyone can create a wiki run under MediaWiki.

The wiki will always be run by fans and is not affiliated with Sanrio or its affiliates and subsidiaries.

Content on this wiki cannot be used for commercial purposes.


First don't worry if you're new and make a mistake we will amend it for you. ^^

Also write in whichever style you want on the mainspace (this includes article pages but not files, talk pages, user pages), but providing:

  • Please write articles in the main-space (content articles such as Cinnamoroll) in the third-person. This means do not use words such as "you", "I" or "we". However, they can be substituted for words such as "people", "player(s)", "the player", "they". The purpose of this policy is to keep this website close to a formal encyclopedia.
  • All content in the main-space must be relevant to Sanrio. There is an inclusive approach so anything that includes Sanrio characters or has had relationships with Sanrio can be added.
  • Copyrighted images can only be a maximum of 400 pixels wide/high to qualify as fair use.
  • Copying information word for word on to the Sanrio Wiki from places where you are not the author (such as Wikipedia) is not allowed. However, you can put them in your own words and cite the original page.
  • Please don't add leaked content e.g. the Hello Kitty game found from Nintendo data leaks.
  • Please don't add images of Sanrio people from social media, however, pictures from interviews and commercial products (e.g. books) is allowed.
  • For Japanese names, translations may be used for articles named after general words, but when the subject has a proper noun, or katakana representations of English, or is referring to a character, game, television show/anime episode, comic/manga series, publication or chapter it is kept in romanised Japanese. (For example, Postman (Hello Kitty no Happy House) contrasted with Onegai My Melody: ~KuruKuru Shuffle!~.
    • In the case that the media has an official English translation, this rule is overrided and the English version is used instead.
