Kung Pow Quahog Character Profile: Daniel LaRusso

Konbanwa, Martial Artists!

It’s… Daniel-san! Banzai!!!

With this new Kung Pow Quahog event, we also get some New Characters. Characters like the underdog, Daniel LaRusso!


Let’s take a look at what Daniel LaRusso can do in our silly lil games.

Daniel LaRusso is a Character added during Kung Pow Quahog in 2017. As with (almost) all Characters in TQFS in order to unlock him you’ll have to collect lots of STUFF.


First though, you had to get the Cherry Tree in the Event Area repaired so you could get him out. It costs $10 & takes 10s to unlock. When you unlock him this will trigger his 7 day timer! Note that you will be prompted to unlock him at Mojo in the Dojo Pt. 4.


With him now visible in front of the Cherry Tree, you can tap on the Lock Icon to see just what is required to bring him into your game.

Get from Jerome Learn Taiko OR Jean Claude Van’s Vans OR Poor Pagoda

Get from Mort Wax Old Cars OR School of Martial Farts 
image 19 Paint Brushes (Uncommon):
 Clear Nerds
Unlock the Tweenage Ninja Tortoises
image1 Ramen Cup: Defeat Mr. Washee Washee 

Once you had all his Requirements checked off, the Unlock Icon appeared over his head. Tapping on it brought him into your game as a Character.

He does come with a Questline, Karate Kidding, more on it in a later post.


Daniel is also part of a clam collection, The Best Around. Collection of all characters will award 10 Clam Icon Clams.


Daniel does come with a complete set of Tasks! Tasks that will help you earn $$$ & XP. He can also help you to fight Nerds!

Let’s take a look at some of Daniel’s Tasks:


Task Time Earns Drops/
Clapper Board Stub His Knee 4hrs 50  30 
Tour The Town 6hrs 65  45  Level 2
Clapper Board Do Karate Chores 8hrs 80  50 
 Catch Flies With Chopstick 10hrs 90  59  Level 3
Make Enemies 12hrs 100  65 Level 3
Get Bullied 16hrs 80 50 Level 4
Be The Best Around 24hrs 150  100  Level 5

**Note: Within an Event, tasks may change and vary as the Phases come and go. So some of these tasks will be temporary. Others may be one time use. Some will stick around even after the Event. We won’t know until the Event Ends.



“I was doing karate on the beach before homeless people”.

“You should see Mr Miyagi’s chore wheel”.


“I’m a black belt in battling bullies”.

And there you have it, the complete breakdown for The Karate Kid… Daniel LaRusso!

What do you think of Daniel? Have you unlocked him? If so, what do you think of his tasks? Have a favorite? If not, how close are you? Let us know!

  1. Daniel has been stuck at 4/12 health for days. Anyone know WHY?!! I need him at full health to fight Mr. Miyagi!!


  2. Intentionally delayed triggering him and got him yesterday. Since then he’s killing nerds and has already earned more than the 250 belts needed for Mr Washee Washee so now I got two brand new characters, awesome! 😉

    I’ll be doing the same with the timed character this week, just waiting for Quagmire’s skin to complete and then I can easily defeat Samurais with him and Peter and hopefully get that character too. Who can then in turn fight Samurais to get enough belts for Mr Miyagi, another two characters. 🙂

    I really like TinyCo offering characters for event currency particularly since you normally end up with an unnecessary stockpile of week one and two currency anyways. Happy days 🙂


  3. how do you beat washee without daniel unlocked? if you need to beat him 4x doesn’t his health reset during peters 7 hour heal? seems impossible without spending clams


  4. i purchase him with minutes to spare with 22 Clams, and hope it will help in the week 2 big boss


  5. Disposable Name

    Awesome! Just beat Washee Washee had 11 riceballs, go to buy the turtles and now I only 5. Problem is I didn’t buy it. It’s not in my inventory and it’s still available to purchase. It was the last thing I needed to unlock Daniel-san and I only have 4 hours on timer. Nicely done Tiny Co.


  6. what happens if the countdown ends and he is unlocked?? It resets??


    • If the countdown ends and he is NOT unlocked, he goes away and will not return. He is limited time.

      As so as he is unlocked, there is no need any longer for a countdown


  7. My question really relates to Mr Washee Washee and Daniel’s place in the game: will Mr Washee Washee leave the fight circle entirely once I enter Phase 2 or will he continue to appear to be battled by Daniel (since that’s all he can do along with Nerds) in Phase 2? Thanks!


    • Mr Washee Washee does leave the game, as Mr Miyagi then becomes the next villan we fight and Daniel can battle him, so he will still be useful.


  8. He’s voiced in my game. I haven’t unlocked him, but he speaks when I tap him to view his dilemma. Seems to be from an alternate reality though as he doesn’t look or sound like the movie character to me!


  9. I’m glad I unlocked him, my only complaint is that he doesn’t have a event related task for drops and he can’t be used for fights past week 1.
