Taruru (タルル , also romanized as Talulu) is a character from the series Keroro Gunso.
He was formerly Tamama's apprentice and calls him "master,"("senpai" in Japan).
For more see Chibi Taruru.
Taruru used to be Tamama's apprentice. Taruru first appeared to see if all the rumors about the Keroro Platoon was true, revealing what Tamama told him about the platoon. In the anime, he also appeared a couple of times with his childhood friend Karara, forming a duo of mischievous kids. Taruru was more clumsy than Tamama. Taruru is a blue Keronian kid, as has been implied by his tail. The Keron Army then transformed him into a mature Keronian and made him private first class. He currently has adult features. Despite Taruru's clumsiness in the past, he had become very skilled when training in the Keron Army under the Garuru Platoon and has exceeded Tamama in both growth and rank, defeating him in a face-off, but was defeated by a persevering Tamama.
Tamama was Taruru's former master. Taruru often followed him around when he was younger, and called him master or senpai, much to Tamama's annoyance and embarrassment. Taruru enjoys Tamama's stories about his adventures on Pekopon and would fawn over all of Tamama's lies.
However, after maturing and joining the Keroro Platoon, Taruru treats Tamama with a little less respect, still referring to him as Senpai, despite having exceeded him.
