At first I just figured that Mokona was genderless since CLAMP has made characters like that before (Ashura-ou from RG Veda). But I've noticed when reading translated version of the Tsubasa online; the white Mokona has refered itself to a she. There were many other times when I notice but finally reading some of the chapters again I decided to ask you guys what you thought;

Here's a page that Mokona refers himself/herself as a 'she';
http://www.onemanga.com/Tsubasa_Reservoir_Chronicles/168/12/


Could it be a translation error?

Well maybe Mokona really is a 'She' (:
I dont know if it is a translation error or what but I haven't really noticed what gender Mokona was before you made this topic.
I have always thought it was a 'he' or a 'it' ;p

If you'd want to give the Mokona's genders I'd say the white one (Soel) is female and the black one (Larg) male.

The the Mokona ( Soel ) is female and the black Mokona ( Larg ) is male. This is stated in the official CLAMP book, "Soel to Larg".

Really? Hmm...I never really thought about it, but I guess it makes sense. Then again, reading the chapters, I always thought Mokona was a male. *Shrugs.*

I know the question is cleared up, but I also want to state one extra info. In Shiritsu Horitsuba Gakuen (Private Horitsuba Academy, a series of radio show that mixes xxxHOLiC and Tsubasa characters), White Mokona is a she and Black Mokona is a he.

I agree with the above replies ^^

But you can tell because the white one is more empathic with people around her, too.

I just knew they were named after mokona apapa.... but what about the mokona from MKR does that mokona or more so "is that mokona the same as the white mokona modoki in TRC/xxxholic?"

I have always identified mokona as being genderless... both of them... now you have me thinking...

As stated in holic, Mokona (mkr) is Dimensional God - a being older than anything out there. God Mokona jumps from dimension to dimension, creating the new ones and looking over the old. Yuuko and Clow met God Mokona during their travels through dimensions. God Mokona was "inspiration" for the designs of Soel And Larg.

God Mokona has unlimited potential of existance and is a few times bigger than his magic-robot-copies. It has no gender. Has the power to create dimensions.

Soel, the white mokona, is female. She symbolizes White, Good, Yin, more feminine side of Everything and has ability to be an universal translator and to travel through the worlds(as an extension to Yuuko's magic powers) . She was created for Syaoran(or Sakura, I do not remember right now)

Larg is the black mokona. Larg is male. He symbolizes Black, Bad, Yang, more masculine side of Everything. Larg has ability to see ghosts as well as to "seal" something or someone. He was created for Watanuki.


Soel and Larg is eternal pair, missing each other when separated and being able to feel each other's presence. They also can communicate with each other, wherever they are.

Both Replica-mokona were created by Yuuko and Clow, taught and put to sleep for things to come.

I just wanted to add that in the volume 11 of TRC, chap 77, Nokoru ask directly Mokona if Mokona is a male or a female, but the little one simply respond:

"Mokona is Mokona"

Giving no real answer on what is gender really is. Just to add a little something on the discussion ! ^^

Well as far i remember/know/understand is that Ms. Soel (alias White Mokona) was created for their Dimension Traveling... So I think that more that made for Syaoran or Sakura, Soel was created for Fai, Kurogane, Sakura and Syaoran to travle across the worlds in their journey for their Hitsuzen :p

And Mokona is Mokona :D

i think that the translation must be wrong! because in xxx holic (Yuuko ) called black mokona a girl and in tsubasa chronicle Syaoran called white mokona a boy(he)
read this:


and listen to jap pronounce if white one said (watashi) then it's a female and if it said( ore ) it's a male.
:D the simplest way! lol

Translation, translation and the English language with its gender-specified pronouns... I've never read neither mangas in RAW, but I clearly remember in the anime no one referred to them with these kind of pronouns.

and listen to jap pronounce if white one said (watashi) then it's a female and if it said( ore ) it's a male.
:D the simplest way! lol

They both refer to themselves as the third person way :) Btw, 'watashi' is not gender-specified and there are more words for 'I' in Japanese.

It's official that Soel is female and Larg is male.

It was mentioned in Horitsuba Gakuen ("Since (white) Mokona is a girl, Mokona will wear the girl's uniform~! (Black) Mokona is a boy, so Mokona will wear the boy's uniform~!") or something like that.

Soel shows a little more empathy and is more understanding, while Larg acts more "masculine".

Hmm, interesting topic! I don't think you can really tell their genders from their personalities, unless they are supposed to be like yin and yang (which wouldn't surprise me coming from CLAMP), since there are tomboys and girly guys. Everyone's made good points; personally I never really thought about it. XD Mokona is Mokona. It's also possible that their genders depend on the story? Are Soel and Larg from the novel and the one's from Horitsuba Gakuen the same as the one's from TRC and xxxHolic? It could be that in TRC and xxxHolic they are genderless, while in Horitsuba and/or the novel they have genders.

On a side note, does anyone know where I can find the Soel to Larg novel? I can never find it at my bookstore, even though it's listed online. D: I really wanna read it!

More than anything Mokona is genderless. There are a lot of characters like that in anime.

However, if I were to assign a gender to Mokona I would guess that it is a boy.
