Pororo (뽀로로) is the main protagonist of Pororo the Little Penguin, who appears in almost every episode in the series.
Pororo is a little penguin that marks him as the titular character of the cast of friends. He is 8 years old (9 in Season 3, 10 years old in Season 4, 11 in Season 5, 12 in Season 6) and the leader of the group. He often gets into various types of mischief with his friends, which includes trying to fly and playing practical pranks on his friends. Pororo resides in a pine-tree house with Crong, his dinosaur friend and little brother. He has a crush on Petty. Loopy admires him and tends to like him more than a 'friend'. Petty is his 'Dancing Partner' in the Dance Festival with the dance "Freeze in your Position" (Pororo Singalong). In the third season, Loopy tells a tale about Pororo will marry Loopy, but Pororo denied and says "But I want to marry beautiful Princess Petty!". In the sing-along series, he likes playing the electric guitar. He can also play the recorder, as seen in the episode, "A Magic Flute". He dreams of becoming a pilot one day, flying high in the sky, as mentioned in the song, "For Sure" (Pororo Singalong).
Pororo is a gentoo penguin who wears a tan aviator's helmet and orange goggles. Starting with the third season, he begins to wear a blue armor, an orange bandana, gold gloves, and a yellow racing helmet, with the letter P on top.

- Besides doing Pororo's season 5 voice, Monique Dami Lee later voiced Tayo from Tayo The Little Bus, another popular Korean children's show.
- When he is voiced by Anna Paik for Season 1, he sounds very much like the title character in Cocomong, the narrator in Pom Pom Friends or Tao in Little Wizard Tao.
- When he is voiced by Samia Mounts for Season 2, his voice sounds 1 1/2 step higher than the previous season, and is probably the highest-pitched Pororo voice.
- When he is voiced by Bommie Han for Season 3, 4 and 6, he sounds very much like Lenny from Pom Pom Friends or Sealoo from Sealoo and Friends, but a step higher to match his playful personality.
- When he is voiced by Monique Dami Lee for Season 5, he sounds like a voice mix of Sun Woo-Min from Flowering Heart and Tayo from Tayo the Little Bus.
- Originally, Pororo was going to be called “Peter“ , but the show's creator, Choi Jong Il, would call him "Pororo" and that name suited the penguin.
