Akamaneki (Japanese: 赤魔寝鬼,Akamaneki) is a secret Boss Yo-kai in Yo-kai Watch Busters. You can challenge him in White Dog Corps by going to the YBK hall and put stickers (you get from playing with someone that has the same version or street passing someone and beat them) on Shirokoma. You can only put a hundred stickers a day, however. You also need to play with at least 1 or more people that has White Dog Corps.
His translated Yo-kai Medallium states: "A huge beckoning cat that sleeps in the basement of the YBK hall. It's identity does not have any details, and it's shrouded in mystery. When the fragile balance between him and Shirokoma is lost, stability is lost in the Yo-kai World."
Akamaneki resembles a Maneki Neko, with red-colored skin, and the area of its ears and tail is dark brown in color. It wears an ornamental white and purple rope on its neck, a bronze colored, finely ornamented with gold chest piece, and golden bracelets. It carries a big golden coin with a Yo-Kai esque single eye and teethed mouth. For some reason, four blue Hitodama Flames surround it.
