Toro Inoue (井上トロ), also known as Toro (トロ) and the Sony Cat, is the main character of the Doko Demo Issyo (どこでもいっしょ, Together Everywhere) series.

In his own series, Toro's wish is to become human, a subject explored in different games he has appeared in. He already seems to live life very much like a human: He has owned an apartment and was evicted, starred on a daily and weekly news program, along with many other adventures. He still, however, meows and purrs on occasion.

In the Ape Escape series, he is a recurring gag character.

He also appeared in the Ape Escape 20th Anniversary Twitter campaign with the Pipo Monkeys.

This Doko Demo Issyo game was released in Japan on June 15, 2006. The player follows Toro and his friends in various school-related activities and minigames.[1] The game's name is a pun, with 'Let's Gakkou!' sounding like 'Let's Go!' and 'Gakkou' meaning 'school' in Japanese, so it holds the meaning of 'let's go to school!'. There is an Ape Escape cameo in the game where Pipo Monkeys challenge Toro to a battle in November, with the reward for winning being some Pipo Monkey costumes.[2]
