|“||Are you gonna be famous?||”|
—Orikko, Queen Banana
Orikko is 10 centimeters (or 4 inches) tall and has burnt orange skin, the color getting lighter the further down their body, with orange eyes and yellow sclerae. They have a rooster comb on their head, a yellow beak, and a rooster-like tail with three tips.
Orikko can fly, levitate, and phase through solid objects. They can also carry objects that are larger and/or heavier than themself.
As a kwami, Orikko is able to transform the holder of the Rooster Miraculous into a rooster-themed superhero, although it is unknown what the transformation looks like or what powers the transformed person gains.
Before Season 2
Before the Miraculous jewels were created, Orikko and the other kwamis traveled all over the universe unable to interact with humans. Thousands of years ago, a mage created the Miraculouses. When Orikko's Miraculous was not being worn, Orikko was dormant in the Rooster Miraculous, which was stored inside Master Fu's Miraculous jewelry box.
During Season 2, Orikko was dormant in the Rooster Miraculous.
In "Sandboy", Orikko was celebrating Nooroo's birthday in the Miracle Box with the other kwamis and was excited when Tikki and Plagg arrived. They marveled at the gift Tikki brought as they thought it was a paintbrush. When it came the time to find Nooroo, Orikko got into position but in an effort to contact him, but they contacted his wielder instead. Upon hearing his voice, the kwami shuddered at the thought of being his slave and prevented themselves from being discovered when they all cut off the connection. They realized if they contacted Nooroo's wielder, rather than Nooroo, then someone must have been akumatized and that Tikki and Plagg's wielders would be in danger.
During Season 3, Orikko was dormant in the Rooster Miraculous.
In "Kwamibuster", they were activated along with their kwami brothers and sisters to help Multimouse enact her plan to rescue Tikki and Plagg. During the confrontation, Orikko was one of the few kwamis captured but this was actually part of the plan and was set free with the help of Multicat. After Kwamibuster's defeat, Orikko and others cheered for Marinette as their plan was successful and was returned to Miracle Box.
In "Miracle Queen", they were activated alongside Stompp, Roaar, Ziggy, Daizzi, Barkk, Mullo, and Fluff, by Queen Bee with the intent to use them against Ladybug and Cat Noir. After being commanded to transform her, they collectively withheld their transformation phrases. Upon hearing Master Fu renounce his title, they and the others protest but Master Fu does so anyway, resulting in the Miracle Box changing shape and form. After failing to escape, Queen Bee throws off their respective Miraculouses, and they, alongside their kwamis, are returned to the Miracle Box by Ladybug.
In "Truth", Orikko was accidentally released from the Miracle Box when Marinette tried to figure how the box works and wanted to release the kwamis as she felt they were trapped. When released, Orikko eagerly and disrespectfully explored Marinette's room, without her permission. During a video call, Orikko and the others gathered around her new guardian's computer in amazement wondering why her friends were imprisoned. When Marinette leaves for her date with Luka, Orikko and their fellow kwamis hid inside the Miracle Box. After the titular villain's defeat, Orikko and the others saw that Marinette was sad about breaking up with Luka to the point of tears, they didn't know exactly how to help but joined with their fellow kwamis in giving their new guardian a group hug.
In "Gang of Secrets", Orikko was seen talking with some of their fellow kwamis until their guardian arrives home. Later, Orikko and the others hear Marinette voice, her distress about being condemned to a life of secrets and lies forever because of her alter ego. When they hear someone coming, the kwamis hide in the Miracle Box and after the Gang of Secrets had been defeated Orikko and the others look on as Marinette unveils her secret to Alya.
In "Mr. Pigeon 72", Orikko was seen with the other kwamis helping to clean up Marinette's room.
In "Furious Fu", hearing that Master Fu was returning, Orikko along with their fellow kwamis expressed dear desire to see him despite Marinette trying to keep them hidden for their safety and when her new guardian voiced concerns about leaving the Miracle Box unguarded. Orikko realized that if someone stayed to guard the box, the others could go. However, when they cheated their way out so all of them can go, they were stopped by Marinette as she reaffirmed that she was the new guardian who made the decisions of who can and cannot go. With no choice, they used the "pup dog eyes" on her and Marinette reluctantly agreed. However Orikko and their fellow kwamis had a hard time keeping quiet while in Marinette's bag but heard that Master Fu is doing well and become a great painter.
But returning home, Orikko realized that Su-Han had returned to reclaim the box as he was the previous guardian before Master Fu's incident. With Su-Han's strict orders, Orikko and their fellow kwamis sadly returned to the box. After seeing Ladybug's valiant actions against the titular villain, Su-Han realized that Master Fu's choice wasn't so bad allowing Orikko and their fellow kwamis to stay with Marinette.
In "Queen Banana", Orikko asked Marinette if she'll be famous after making the movie.
In "Optigami", Orikko looked at Marinette while she was paralyzed staring at the ticket to the Fashion Icon of the Month, because it had a picture of Adrien on it.
In "Hack-San", Orikko and the kwamis were aware that Marinette was leaving for a trip to London, but heard their guardian making an excuse to stay. Not wanting to leave Paris unguarded and when Orikko heard that Marinette pretend to break her leg. Orikko was shocked but was informed by Longg about that trick never working especially if parents want to go on vacation.
In "Dearest Family", after Tikki ate the pieces of galette, Marinette brought for them, the kwamis quickly realized what she did. Orikko huddled together with others when they realized the danger Tikki's hunger for candy can represent, despite the kwami of Creation refusal at that. When Tikki and Marinette the kwamis flew around in a panic. Shortly after he watched Marinette, realize that Sass' warning was real and transforms to stop Tikki only to be affected by his sibling's hunger, which scared him.
Hearing a commotion downstairs, Orikko and the others were commanded to hide. After Ladybug saved her family Orikko and the kwamis see her return with pieces of galette for them. Despite that they were still nervous regarding Tikki, until Marinette ensured them that Tikki will control herself and the kwamis ate the pieces of galette happily.

- Orikko was first revealed in a second season trailer on August 31, 2017.
- Orikko's name was confirmed in the credits of the Latin American Spanish dub of "Sandboy".
- The rooster is the tenth animal of the Chinese zodiac.
- Roosters represent pride, honesty, watchfulness, flamboyance.
- Roosters are male chickens, despite kwamis not having genders.
- The Gallic rooster is the unofficial national symbol of France as a nation. Its association with France dates back to the Middle Ages due to the coincidental homonyms of the Latin words Gallus (inhabitants of Gaul) and gallus ("rooster").
- Orikko's name is a reference to "Cocorico", the French onomatopoeia for the sound a rooster makes (the equivalent of English's "cock-a-doodle-doo").
- Orikko is the only kwami that has three syllables in its' name, while the other kwamis have one or two syllables.
- "Cocorico" is sometimes used as an expression of French national pride.
- Orikko is the only kwami whose gender pronouns remain unknown.
- Along with Mullo, Orikko is also the only known kwami who does not have a speaking role until season 4, as they remained in the background in both seasons 2 and 3.
