Afro-Ken, a dog with a rainbow-colored afro, is a happy dog that does not speak. He likes things that look like him, such as cotton candy. There are different types of Afro-ken, with different hairstyles, such as a mohawk (called Mohican-Ken), curls (Curly-Ken), and no hair (Normal-Ken).
Afro Ken is a Japanese character created by the San-X company, which creates other anime-style characters such as Kogepan. He is a dog with a rainbow-coloured afro. He is innocent and blameless and always in a good mood. Afro Ken is always willing to try new things. Afro Ken is attracted to objects that look like he does. His hair changes to look like these things as he gets close to them.
There is an Afro Ken Family Tree with other dog characters who have outrageous names, such as Techno Ken, Funky Ken, Lord Ken, Super Afro Ken, and Normal Ken. Unlike the others, Normal Ken does not have wild hair.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Afro-ken! He can blend into a flock of sheep, be a makeshift tree in an orchard, act as a stunt double for beer foam, and even replace the clouds in the sky; all without ever saying a word! Watch Afro-ken as he skips through the streets of Japan, bounds through fields of cotton candy, and fends off caveman attackers in ancient times; all without breaking a sweat! But can he manage to avoid being struck by lightning yet again?
