|KNT character||Yattarō (ヤッ太郎?)|
|Voice actor||Rick Jones|
|Seiyuu (KNT)||Yamaguchi Kappei|
Speedy Cerviche (pronounced "ser-vee-chay") is the leader of the Samurai Pizza Cats. As his name implies, Speedy is nimble and fast on his toes, a trait which comes in handy both when delivering pizzas and when fighting crime. He wields the magical Ginzu sword, whose power is unleashed in almost every episode as Speedy's special attack, the Cat's Eye Slash. Speedy is very self-confident and loves to pose for the camera after each victory. He is sarcastic, often jokes, and gets easily irritated at times, but remains very committed to his duties. He has green eyes and wears white armor. Ceviche (also spelled as cebiche or seviche) is actually a seafood dish from Peru. At first, Speedy thought Bad Bird would never be good until future episodes proved him wrong. In some episodes Speedy tries to be friends with Bad Bird. At the end of the series, Speedy convinces him to reform.
Also noted, the creators (of the KNT) stated that they were going to have a back story of Yattarō and have a story of him when he was a child. He and his team will have new weapons and new finisher moves. All that was going to happen in the KNT TV series new season. However, it never happened since the show only ran for one season and was cancelled soon after.
