Alumi (Japanese: アルミ, Arumi) is a recurring character in the Taiko no Tatsujin series. She was introduced in Taiko no Tatsujin Wii: Do-Don to Nidaime! and is one of the main characters in the same game.
She is voiced by Akane Ueda in the series.
Alumi is a robot, sporting the yellow body with pale underbelly, blue boot on the legs, blue rings on the wrist and a gold winding key on her back. There's two acorn-shaped parts on the upper sides of her head.
Despite her origin, Alumi is a cheerful and fun-loving robot.
She usually ends her sentences with 'nanora', 'nora', and 'ro', and all of her sentences are written in only katakana, much like Mecha-Don.
Alumi is the second robot created by Dr.Evil Lou and is No.0 in the Waru Robot line, but broke down at the festival area. She was founded by Don and Katsu shortly after and was repaired at the Municipal Wadaiko Laboratory by Professor Otowa. It was implies that she was powered by the power generator that uses Taiko power as its fuel, as Dr.Evil Lou had stole Otowa's research data before he went missing.

Alumi was sent by Evil Lou to cause havoc at the festival, but for whatever reason, she was immediately broke down in the festival area before she was able to do anything. She is later found by Don and Katsu, who bring her to Professor Otowa's lab to fix her.
She was fixed, but the Taiko duo finds out that she doesn't remember anything except her name. Don and his co. decide to help her recover her memories, while also deal with the troubles Dr.Evil Lou's Waru Robots were causing. Throughout the game's story, she regains most, if not all, of her memories with Don and his co.'s help.
She is later brainwashed by Dr.Evil Lou using a remote brainwash device and turns against Don and his co., but is defeated and breaks down once more, much to Don and Katsu's sadness. Shortly after, she was miraculously revived when Dr.Evil Lou attacks the Municipal Wadaiko Laboratory, and Don and his co. put an end to his evil scheme once and for all.
After that, she stays in Professor Otowa's lab and occasionally visits her friends.
In the fifth DLC chapter, Dr.Evil Lou's Ambition, Alumi is seen trying to stop Dr.Evil Lou inside his secret base as he plans on doing something sinister. Just then, Don and Tocky arrive to the scene and Dr.Evil Lou is shocked that the Taiko drum who had defeated him before is here.
It is only after Dr.Evil Lou is defeated that he reveals a space-time distortion that occurs deep inside his secret base. Dr.Evil Lou quickly escapes from the base, leaving Don and his friends inside as the distortion begins to self-destruct the base. Luckily, Don and his friends are able to destroy the vortex before the situation worsens. After that, Alumi joins the party.
She is a mech-type battle member in the game.
