It is unknown of Kenji's relationship with his mother. When he was 5, Kenji drew a picture of himself, Mr. Kon and a women holding hands, and a mermaid off to the side. It is unknown if Kenji's mom and Mr. Kon are divorced, or if Kenji's mom is dead. While Mr. Kon's wealth has made Kenji arrogant and entitled, there is a part of him that is not always happy due to Mr. Kon not spending time with him.

Camp Cretaceous

Season 1

Kenji is a guest of Jurassic World, a constant one and considered VIP due to his wealthy father owning the condos built on the island, and as such knows the secret passageways underneath the island. At Camp Cretaceous, Kenji met five other campers there who were also participating in the camp. They engaged in several exciting activities at the camp, led by Roxie and Dave, the two camp counselors. Kenji saw dinosaurs up close, drove a Gyrosphere, and made many incredible memories.

Kenji was often full of himself, trying to impress everyone around him. He creates trouble on his first day at camp and Darius has is forced to cover up for Kenji's mistakes. After disaster struck and the dinosaurs got out of containment, Kenji and the campers were left on their own to fight for their lives. They went on the run, rode in kayaks, and rode a monorail all trying to escape the dinosaurs. Kenji managed to make it to a ferry port alive. However, the ferry had already left, so he was left stranded on the island at the end of the first season of the show.

Season 2

"A Beacon of Hope"

Kenji accompanies the group to Main Street in search of food and communication. He finds walkie talkies and frozen pizza, but the pizza is stolen by Compies. The next day, his walkie talkies are used to allow the group to monitor Rexy so that they can know when it's safe to enter its lair to activate a distress beacon. Together with Darius Bowman, Kenji invades the lair, breaks open the beacon, and activates the distress signal before fleeing to safety.

"The Art of Chill"

After deciding on their old camp as a base, Kenji is left behind to watch over Yasmina and to sift through the debris for anything useful. He decides to do nothing and rest, but Yasmina pushes herself to work which forces him to go after her. On finding her, she insists she rest and not push her limits, even taking her crutch to force her to relent, but she refuses and only ends up hurting herself even more. Kenji carries her back, and during a scuffle accidentally hurts her feelings by forcing her to face the reality of her limitations. Kenji comforts Yasmina as she cries, then carries her the rest of the way back to camp. He sets up a small pile of sticks there, which is promptly destroyed by several rampaging dinosaurs, so he and Yaz hide in a tree with the rest of the group, before returning to camp to build a treehouse.

"The Watering Hole"

Another resting tree

Kenji runs out of water in the shower of their newly created fort, prompting Darius to get more, only to realize that the river is dried up. Kenji and Darius are then sent to investigate the water problem, eventually finding a dead waterfall. Kenji brushes off Darius' attempts to be "cool" and then begrudgingly scales the rock wall, eventually arriving at a dam. Darius tries to draw Stegosaurus over to destroy it, to no avail, so Kenji whistles as the dinosaurs and dodges when they get close, letting the dam be destroyed. They aren't killed by the dinosaurs however, due to the proximity of the watering hole, which Kenji at last admits is pretty "cool".

"Salvation"

The campers are eventually rescued by Hap, Mitch, and Tiff after the campers saw their campfire. However, when they reach their saviors' camp, Kenji tries to downplay the luxury amenities there, bragging about his own rich family, although no one cares. He remains largely out of the main events, sulking and even staying with Brooklynn after she offended Darius. She drags him along to investigate Hap's yurt, with Kenji complaining about Mitch and Tiff's wealth on the way, but they both end up caught by Hap. Not perturbed in the slightest, Kenji promptly goes to sleep on Brooklynn's shoulder until she rouses him, and they both flee with Hap in pursuit. Before Hap can catch or reason with them however, Ben Pincus knocks him out, shocking Kenji.

"Misguided"

Kenji, after reuniting with Ben, argues to trust Hap's story that there's a boat off the island. He goes along with Ben and Brooklynn to a storage unit with a motorcycle in it, which he rides behind Brooklynn. However, a Baryonyx trio chases them, forcing Hap to sacrifice himself to let Kenji and everyone else escape.

"Step One"
Kenji restores power.png

Everyone decides to go into the tunnels to reach Main Street in time to help Darius and Sammy, over Kenji's terrified protestations. Within the tunnels themselves they discover a control center, and although they try to use it to help their friends in Main Street, Kenji is the only one who realizes that they have to restore the power first, and does so. This allows everyone else to, at length, master the controls and reactivate a hologram of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. This distracts Rexy long enough for Sammy and Darius to escape.

"Chaos Theory"

Kenji is sent by Darius to pick him and Sammy up, but he refuses to go fast enough on the motorcycle, always turning to correct himself. Darius leaves, and eventually he's pushed to go faster and is able to drive properly. He drops Sammy off with Ben and then drives out with them, him alone on his motorcycle, to drive the dinosaurs away from the watering hole together. He then has to drive back when Rexy sends the dinosaurs roaring back the other way, but he manages to drive to safety and rendezvous with everyone else.

Season 3

"View from the Top"

Kenji and the other campers leave Jurassic World on a boat, but are then swept away and back on the island by a big wave. After Kenji mentions hand gliders in Lookout Point, the group heads to Lookout Point, where Kenji and Sammy get on a sky Gondola and start joking around. After getting off on the top, they look at the view, and end up spotting something important. When they are attacked by a Dimorphodon, they run back into the Gondola and Kenji prevents it from getting in by kicking it, resulting in himself and Sammy escaping. Fortunately, everyone escapes. After escaping, Kenji and Sammy tell the others they found Tiff and Mitch's boat. The six heads towards the boat.

Safe Harbor

While on the boat, Kenji scares Darius and Brooklyn on a few occasions for his own amusement but their annoyance, assumes the role as captain of the ship, and holds a yacht party. However, that night, the group searches for supplies to patch up a hole in the boat they discovered. After overhearing Darius and Brooklynn talking about pranking him back, Kenji hides himself. However, after later coming out of hiding, he finds himself being chased and attacked by an Ouranosaurus but is saved by Yasmina. After reuniting with the rest of the group, Kenji and the others head back to the boat and proceed to leave, with Kenji driving. However, when a few Ouranosaurus's follow them onto the boat, Kenji and the others chase them away with fireworks.

Casa De Kenji

While Darius does use some tape to patch up the hole, the group knows that it won't hold up in the long run. After remembering his dad's penthouse, Kenji uses whatever gas left on the boat to take them there to gather supplies to fully patch up the boat. After heading in the penthouse, Kenji shows off the place to the others. When Sammy sees pictures of his father and tries to ask where he is, Kenji quickly changes the subject. After witnessing Sammy and Yasmina looking at a picture of himself, dad and two other women, which he drew when he was five, he brushes that off. However, when Sammy and Yasmina walk off, he looks at the drawing briefly with some fondness. After several Monolophosaurus enter the premises and attack, Kenji, Brooklynn, and Darius jump on an elevator shaft while Sammy, Yaz, and Ben escape through the vents and arrive in a garage. Kenji uses a Gaddi sculpture, which was one of his dad's favorite to save both Brooklyn and Darius, and knock out a Monolophosaurus, but is shown to be upset when the sculpture broke in the process. the three catch up with the others on one of his dad's limos and head back to the boat. Back on the boat, Kenji is shown to be upset over not being able to use the penthouse to show everyone a good time, but is comforted by Darius.

Clever Girl

When Kenji throws coins at a pack of Compsognathus with coins to get them to go away, one ends up stealing a compass they found at the penthouse. Kenji, Yasmina and Darius chase the Compy, but stop when the Compy runs into what is the Visitor Center of the original Jurassic Park. Kenji is afraid to go in there, as he believes bad things happens here, but ends up going in with Darius and Yasmina to retrieve the compass. While Yasmina retrieves the compass, the three encounter the Velociraptor Blue (The same Velociraptor that Darius and Kenji encountered on their first night of camp cretaceous). Fortunately, they manage to escape.

Eye of the Storm

After being put in charge of packing by Darius, while the latter goes to observe a herd of his father's favorite dinosaur, Kenji sends Ben to find toilet paper and does some packing. He gains some assistance from Yasimina. However, after the two notice that Ben has been gone for a while, they look for him and find with with Bumpy, much to their annoyance. The three head back to camp. After being notified by Darius about a new and dangerous dinosaur, Kenji gives everyone instructions on what to do. After Darius, Brooklynn and Sammy head back, they learn that the tide is too high, which forces the group to stay at camp. Kenji was unable to gather the supplies in time, much to the ire of Darius. Realizing that they need to protect themselves from the new hybrid dinosaur, the Scorpios Rex, Kenji suggests they put rubble to fortify the fence. After they finish, Darius remarks that Kenji did a good job. However, the Scorpios Rex then arrives and attacks the group. Sammy falls unconscious after being infected by the Rex's poisonous quills, much to the horror of the others.

The Long Run

In order to help Sammy, Yasmina runs to find the antidote, while Darius and Ben create a distraction to divert the Scorpios, which leaves Kenji and Brooklynn to tend to Sammy. Kenji is worried about what could happen to Sammy, but is told by Brooklynn not to think like that. He tries to make Sammy feel better by mooing like her cow Betsy at home. Eventually the others return and Yasmina gives Sammy the antidote. Despite giving the antidote, it appears to have been too late and Sammy has died, much to the sadness and horror of the others. However, her life ends up being saved, much to the relief of Kenji and the others.

A Shock to the System

After Ben runs off to find Bumpy, Darius goes after him, which causes Kenji, Brooklynn, Sammy and Yasmina to head back to the boat. The three are confronted by a stampede of Parasaurolophus lux, but manage to escape. They eventually reach the boat. However, as the Scorpius approaches, the three leave the dock in order to get away.

Escape from Isla Nublar

Kenji, Brooklynn, Sammy and Yasmina head back to the island on the boat and look for Darius and Ben, eventually finding them. However, they are shocked to learn that there are two Scorpios Rexes. They are soon attacked by the two Rexes and even for a short time, Blue. Fortunately, Blue ends up helping them. Kenji and the other campers help tear down the the visitor's center with both Scorpios Rexes inside, killing them. At the dock, the group boards the boat as Ben stays behind. After a moment, Ben changes his mind, much to the happiness of Kenji and the others, and the entire group behinds their journey to Costa Rica. While floating away, several helicopters surround the boat and order the group to return to the island.

Whatever It Takes

Returning to the dock, the group notices that the helicopter passengers are not there to rescue them, have weapons, and appear to be unprepared. Soon after, one helicopter is attacked by Rexy and flies away with Kenji, Sammy and Ben. The three request and even beg the pilot to go back for Darius, Brooklynn and Yasmina, but she refuses. The three are shocked to learn they have been stranded on the island for 6 months. After the helicopter crashes, Kenji, Sammy and Ben narrowly escape, before the helicopter crashes to the ground and explodes. The three decide to head back to the dock, believing Darius, Brooklynn and Yasmina believing they would have gone there if they got away from Rexy.

Stay on Mission

After being reunited with Kenji, Sammy and Ben, Darius explains what happened to Brooklyn and his plan to get her back while also managing to copy and wipe out Wu's memory and research on this laptop. Kenji, however, argues against this and says they should give the laptop, as he is scared about what would happen to Brooklyn. While he goes on with the plan initially, he is shown to be frustrated and impatient with the plan and the amount of time it is taking to copy and delete Wu's memory on his laptop. After some time, a scared and frustrated Kenji takes the laptop before it wipes out all the memory and runs to find Wu. While he gives Wu the laptop, the laptop is ultimately destroyed during a attack on Wu and his mercenaries. Wu leaves the island with his fellow mercenary Hawkes, as they received samples of the Indominus Rex. The six bid farewell to Bumpy. When Darius tells Kenji not to feel bad about taking the laptop and asks Kenji if they were good, a still angry Kenji says no because he does not put his friends lives at risk, much to the shock of Darius. The six then depart the island on Mitch and Tiff's boat, with Kenji driving, though none of them are aware that there appears to be something on the boat that roars in the last scene.

Season 4

Beneath the Surface

Kenji is reluctantly persuaded by Brooklynn to eat with the group. However, he is still angry at Darius for putting Brooklyn's life at risk, and even lashes out on him. While trying to fix the boat, he is comforted by Brooklynn who soothes his anger and helps him fix the SONAR, and Kenji ends up looking at Brooklynn in a different light in the process. When the boat gets stuck in kelp, Darius goes in the water to remove it, but gets stuck in the process and is tailed by the Mosasarous; fortunately he is saved by Kenji. Kenji tells him that they got each others back for life, appearing that their friendship is now restored. The campers are then attacked by the Mosasaurus who destroys the ship, which leads to the campers being swept away onto an island not on Costa Rica. The six go into a cave in order to possibly find shelter for the night.

At Least...

After Ben sees something shiny, the six head out to find what it is. Kenji jokes with Brooklynn about being abducted by aliens, and then acts awkward around her. The group wanders into a desert as a sandstorm begins to form. Unable to see, Kenji and Brooklyn tumble down a pit. While trying to find a way out, Kenji shows affection to Brooklyn, but acts awkward around her as well. After the sandstorm ends, they manage to regroup shortly after. Unfortunately, the group finds out that the shiny thing is a big rectangle. Later at night, the group wakes up and notices a saber-toothed tiger in a bush. Ben runs away to distract the tiger while the group departs to help Ben. At a dead-end, Ben fights the tiger, but Kenji catches up and they manage to scare the tiger away. At dawn, the group begins taking off further into the island. After Kenji trips on a piece of metal, the group then follows it to an invisible wall which opens to reveal a metal hallway, much to their shock.

Turning Dr. Turner

At the other end of the hallway, the group finds themselves in a forest. After avoiding two T-Rexes, they encounter Dr. Mae Turner, who is studying how dinosaurs interact with one another. They go to her place. Distrusting Mae, however, due to their experiences with Mitch and Tiff, Darius and Sammy distract Mae, while the rest of the group go outside and to a place Mae told them not to. Kenji, Brooklynn, Yaz and Sammy spot BRAD, a robot that kills the Compy from the boat because it is an "unrecognized life form" on the island. Mae stops BRAD before it finds and kills them. When Mae later goes to monitor a mother dinosaur and a daughter dinosaurs' eating habbits, with Darius and Sammy follow them, Kenji stays back with Brooklynn, Ben and Yaz. Yaz notices that Kenji has a crush on Brooklynn and tries to get them together, much to Kenji's annoyance. A BRAD heads into Mae's place and comes close to killing Yaz and Ben, but Kenji destroys it.

Rude Awakening

After Mae discovers that Mantah Corp is tampering with the food to make the dinosaours more aggressive, everyone comes up with a plan to call the supply plane and get rid of the altered food, in order to get off the island and stop Mantah Corp. Kenji who has caught some sickness accidentally wakes up the mother T-Rex Big Eatie, which leads to Kenji, Ben and Mae warning the others. When Yaz freezes out of fear when hearing Big Eatie coming, Kenji gets her and reunites with the others. The group is then chased by BRADs, but they escape into a biome with freezing temperatures, where they encounter a wounded Kentrosaurus named Pierce. Despite wanting to catch the plane, the group agrees to help get Pierce out of this area, upon Darius's request. While they are attacked by a BRAD, a frightened Yaz successfully hits it into the water. After saving Pierce, the 6 campers run to the plane, but unfortunately arrive too late. Darius and Ben head back to Mae's, while Yaz breaks down to the others about her nightmares and desire to go home, with Yaz being comforted by Sammy, Brooklynn and Kenji.

The Long Game

Darius and Ben help Mae with Pierce, while Brooklyn and Kenji remove the altered food from the T-Rex area and uncomfortably see an injured daughter T-Rex Little Eatie (Big Eatie's daughter). After removing the altered food from the T-Rex area, Kenji and Brooklynn see the injured little Eatie, which makes them uncomfortable. After regrouping, Sammy reveals that the man is Kash who blackmailed her family into sending her to Jurassic World. Fortunately, Kenji and the others stop Sammy from confronting Kash. They see Kash and Mae, with the former being Mae's boss. While Kash turns the BRADs against Mae and orders them to kill her, Kenji and the others save Mae and fend off the BRADS, though they would then be surrounded by Velociraptors, with one injuring Mae. Fortunately, the group is saved when Sammy then uses one of the damaged BRADs to injure and scare off the raptors. The 6 take Mae somewhere where they won't be seen. Kenji remarks that Ben is keeping an eye on Kash.

Mission Critical

Ben tries to help a wounded Mae, while the others try to get Kash's phone and call for help. After Big Eatie and Pierce are lured to a place by the BRADs and Mantah Corp drones are are forced to fight, Kenji and the others agree to stop him and also get the phone. The six campers come up with a plan to lure Kash away, stop the fight, and get the phone. When Kenji and Brooklynn are together, Brooklynn jokes about sacrafising him, and Kenji shows some affection before changing his expression when Brooklynn looks at him. They see Kash ho was lured out thanks to Ben, Yaz and Sammy. However, when Kash sends his BRAD to get his phone, Kenji and Brooklynn try to follow the BRAD but stop when they see some BRADs.

Staying Alive

The 5 wonder why Darius has not stopped the fight. They then attempt to destroy the drones to stop the fight, but luckily, Darius who was captured by Kash convinces him to stop the fight. Kenji and the others notice that Darius has been captured and taken by Kash. After being told by Mae that there is a platform in the desert, the five head out. Kenji remarks to Brooklynn that he trusts her. Kenji and the others use the platform to get to the med bay, but not before being chased by a Spinosaurus and the Saber-toothed Tiger, with the latter being killed by the Spino. they reunite wit Darius, but Darius decides to stay back and act a spy for the group.

Technical Difficulties

In order to communicate with Darius, the group has Brooklynn reprogram one of the new BRAD-X's. However, Kenji and the others putt oo much pressure on Brooklynn who freaks out. Fortunately, Kenji and the others recognize their mistake and apoloigize. Brooklynn successfully reprograms a BRAD-X to communicate with Darius, much to the satisfaction of Kenji and the others. Kenji praises Brooklynn and tells her he likes her which makes her shocked, and a embarassed Kenji quickly backpedals.

Dino-Sitting

The five head to the Med bay to save the younger dinosaurs with Darius's assistance. However, Brooklynn begins avoiding Kenji due to him saying he liked her, which upsets him. Kenji goes with Sammy and the two rescue a small Spinoceratops. Kenji grows frustrated when the Spinoceratops is not moving, Sammy tries to tell Kenji to be more sensitive. While Brooklynn is telling Yaz how she feels about Kenji, she runs into Kenji. Kenji and Brooklynn take the Spinoceratops Brooklynn and Yaz found. After heading into another room, Kenji blows a fuse to make it look like the dinosaurs got out by themselves. However, the Spinoceratops Kenji and Brooklynn brought in damages the fuse and completely shuts off the power. The group and the small dinos are all attacked by Ceratosaurus, but they escape. Kenji and Brooklynn take their Spinoceratops to the cold and snowy biome and name it Rebel.

Taking Control

Brooklynn remarks to Kenji that he will make a good dad. Kenji and Brooklynn take Rebel inside and cuddle to feel warm, but after getting back inside, Kenji akwardly lets go. They take Rebel back to Sammy, Yaz and Angel. Ben heads back and tells the others about Kash injecting the control chip in the Brachiosarus he rescued. The group comes up with a plan to take Kash down. Kenji tries to get Rebel to calm down and becomes frustrated when his attempts does not work. When Brooklynn asks him what is going on, Kenji says he wants to support him, which leads to Brooklynn immediately picking up on how Kenji wishes his dad would be there for him. During the plan, Kenji and Brooklynn stay back with Rebel, and the two finally admit their feelings to one other and become a couple. After trapping Kash, Darius and Ben reunite with the others, much to the happiness of Kenji and the others.

Who's the Boss?

Kenji tells Brooklynn he wants to tell Darius about them, and the reason he was really mad on the boat was because he liked her, much to the shock of Brooklynn. Kenji tries to tell Darius that he really wasn't mad at him and shows guilt in his expression and tone, but Darius tells him that they are good. However, Kenji initially does not tell him about him and Brooklynn after Darius says he does not like change. After noticing that Kash escaped Mae's place, Kenji and Darius head to the compound. ATO stop Kash and his boss from using Pierce as food, Kenji and Darius try to stop him by going through the airlock. Kenji and Darius head into the biome, but not before Kenji reveals he and Brooklynn are a couple, much to Darius's shock and happiness. Kenji and Darius are chased away by a pack of Diliophosaurus's and end up catching up with Ben, Mae and Pierce. Brooklyn, Sammy and Yaz arrive with the snowmobile and chase away the Diliphosaurus's, thus saving the others. Kenji asks Brooklynn how she found them and she tells him that he and Darius sent their BRAD-X to warn them, which Kenji denies and Brooklynn kisses him, much to Ben's shock. Darius then realizes that this is a trap, much to the shock of the others. The six, Mae and Pierce see a group of BRAD-X's, Kash and the boss approach them. The boss is shocked when he sees Kenji, while a confused Kenji recognizes him and says "dad?", much to the other campers' shock.

Personality

In season 1, Kenji is a self-appointed VIP camper described as the "self-proclaimed alpha male of the group". He gives off the general impression of someone who is full of himself and has a big personality, bugging those around him. Behind his conceited and narcissistic veneer lies a truly lonely person eager to connect with his fellow campers. He shows hidden depths and an often eclipsed emotional and attenuative streak, being supportive of Darius and admitting his respect for him when he had led them all to safety, as well as defending Sammy Gutierrez from being criticized by Yasmina Fadoula and Brooklynn. Despite being wealthy, he isn't all that happy, as he sadly admits that the staff always lets him win bowling, as well as his father not spending much time with him. As he relaxed himself and opened himself up to fair criticism, he became more popular with others. He also seems to be an airhead, oblivious to danger and seems to consider himself indestructible.

In season 2, Kenji's arrogance, laziness and self entitlement are still present, particularly early on. However, as the season progresses, he becomes more caring and helpful to the group. While he did show a lack of appreciation to the park, he ends up having a change of heart after he and Darius find a Water hole. His bonding with the group continues, particularly with Darius.

In season 3, Kenji is more caring and helpful, even though can still be arrogant and lazy. While he refers to himself as the captain, he does not take the role seriously at times, which can frustrate Darius. However, when necessary, he steps up with his leadership and teamwork. He clearly prioritizes his friends over everything else by this point. However, a rift is caused between him and Darius when he silently accuses Darius of caring more about getting off the island than their friends (even though Kenji was willing to let other people die by giving Henry Wu his laptop which could create more hybrids), which is left unresolved due to the end of the third season.

In season 4, he develops feelings for Brooklynn, but this causes him to act awkward around her on many occasions. Eventually, the two reveal their feelings to each other and become a couple. Despite initially holding on to his grudge against Darius for putting Brooklynn's life at risk, their friendship is restored after he saves Darius from the Mosasaurus. Eventually, he feels guilty over how he acted on the boat because he really wasn't mad at Darius and he even tries to explain to him, but Darius holds no animosity towards him. When trying hard to support Rebel, it is clear that he wishes his father did the same for him. At the end of the season, he's shocked to learn his own father is the president of Mantah Corp. It's so far unknown how this exactly will affect Kenji's personality or his relationship with his fellow campers.

During the trailer for season 5 Kenji isnt seen with the other campers and has a new outfit of a bussinessman which means he either has choosed his fathers side and joined Mantha Corp or just pretend do have done it in order to help the other campers.

Skills & Talents

Having been to Jurassic World numerous times, Kenji knows the layout of the park like the back of his hand.

Trivia

  • Kenji's given name and Asian heritage indicates that he is of Japanese or partial Japanese descent.
  • His interaction with the Compsognathus in End of the Line is a reference to Dieter Stark's interaction with the same dinosaur from The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Both use an electric prod on the dinosaur and both get attacked. The difference is Kenji doesn't interact with them that much later on, while Dieter is later attacked and killed by them later in the movie.
  • As originally conceived, Kenji was originally going to be a short, thin boy with glasses named Xi, with a look and personality more akin to Ben Pincus while Ben himself was the older, more athletic and confident boy. In the final version of the show, he and Ben swapped roles. Xi was renamed Kenji and was now the older, confident boy, whilst Ben became the smaller, more nervous one.
  • Kenji's tall stature, comments towards other characters and the fact that he owns a learners permit implies he is the oldest of the group.
  • Kenji serves as an example as to (partially) why the Indominus Rex was created in the first place, as he lost interest in dinosaurs due to having seen them thousands of times, similar to how Claire Dearing mentioned that people began losing interest in the dinosaurs due to adjusting to them like a ‘petting zoo’.
  • In season 3, Kenji starts growing facial hair. Started growing a beard and a faint mustache while still stranded on Isla Nublar proving that he doesn't have any proper tools to shave them.
  • Kenji has indirectly put the campers in danger multiple times such as leading Darius on the wrong side of the Carnotaurus Paddock, getting them endanger by leaving camp and get attacked by the Indominus Rex, indirectly releasing E750 resulting in it hunting them down and throwing coins at the Compsognathus to shoo them away which backfires that resulted in his group's compass getting stolen by one of them.
    • This makes Kenji similar to Sarah Harding who repealed endangers the protagonists without doing it on purpose.
  • Kenji is similar to Zach Mitchell, as both are similar in age, and initially do not show an appreciation to dinosaurs and Jurassic World.
    • Unlike Zach who showed no appreciation prior to coming to Jurassic World and experiencing the incident, Kenji may have shown an interest in the past. Kenji claimed that he had been to Jurassic World many times and that there was nothing left for him, which could indicate that he used to be interested but lost that interest due to seeing them many times, while Zach is is presumed to have had no interest or experience with dinosaurs prior to arriving on Jurassic World.
  • Kenji was first hinted to have a crush on Brooklyn when he briefly flirted with her in the beginning of season 1, which obviously faded after the Raptor Paddock incident, but he still shows signs or retaining such feelings for her. This was later confirmed in season 4.
  • As he seem's to have a new outfit in season 5 makes Kenji the first of the campers to change outfit since the first episode in season 1.
