Iyami is a very flashy and mischievous man who claims to be from France. His most notable features are his 3 large buckteeth, his thin moustache, and his Beatles-style haircut. He refers to himself in the first person as Me (ミー mii) and other people as Chimi (チミ) and usually ends his sentences with ~zansu (〜ザンス). His trademark pose of flexing his arms and legs and shouting Sheeeh! (シェー) became a popular trend all over Japan. He was modeled after Japanese vaudevillian Tony Tani. He is usually single and is unpopular with women. His occupation and role in the series often changes. In his first appearance he was a doctor. He has also been a teacher at Osomatsu's school, a co-worker of Matsuzō's, and even a police detective pursuing Chibita, but he is almost always actually a con artist or beggar.
