Baku (Japanese: バク Baku) is a Rank D Drain-attribute Yo-kai of the Charming tribe.

As of Yo-kai Watch 2, Baku evolves into Bakulia starting at level 29.

Appearance

Baku has the appearance of a purple and pink tapir. She has yellow eyes with red irises and black pupils. She has small, pointy, ears that are a different color purple than her body (but the same color purple as the tuff of fur on her tail). She has an orange flower-like design next to her eyes. She also has sharp teeth on both her upper and lower jaws.

Personality

She tends to refer to herself in third person.

Relationships

Abilities and Powers

Baku has the ability to put her targets to sleep, allowing her to eat their dreams. The dream takes the form of translucent clouds that can also be viewed like a movie if she doesn't immediately eat them.

In the first game, Baku also demonstrates the ability to assume the appearance of a human. This allows the player to go out at night without their parents knowing, as Baku takes the player's place in bed, asleep. Baku's dream eating also removes all traces of tiredness from the player, allowing them to be indefinitely energetic and not feel exhausted.

  • Loafing: "*zzz...*"
  • Receiving food (favorite):
  • Receiving food (normal):
  • Receiving food (disliked):
  • Freed from the Crank-a-kai: "You show Baku nice dreams. Baku come with you!"
  • Befriended (Yo-Kai Watch Wibble Wobble): "You become Baku's friend, I eat your dreams!"

History

In EP019, Baku puts everyone but Nate in school to sleep in order to feast on their dreams. Despite Nate catching her in the act, she refuses to stop, saying that she will only stop after feasting on an incredible dream as she considers all the dreams she's eaten so far as unfulfilling. Eventually Nate summons Shogunyan, whose dream of being eighty feet tall leaves Baku awestruck. After eating Shogunyan's dream, she happily gives Nate her Medal.

Baku is later summoned in EP021 to deal with Insomni, after the Eerie Yo-kai has Inspirited everyone into not getting any sleep the previous night. After their attacks collide, Baku and Insomni appear to have a faceoff in a wrestling arena where the two sleep-themed Yo-Kai duke it out; Insomni eventually triumphs. However, the sequence turns out to be Insomni's dream, and she is revealed to have fallen asleep the instant she was hit with Baku's hypnotic gas.

In EP027, Baku was seen in Yo-kai-lifornia where she is among the Yo-kai waiting in line for the release of the Yo-kai Watch Model Zero.

Trivia

  • Baku refers to herself as a male in Yo-kai Watch 2, even though she is specifically mentioned as a female in the anime.
  • Baku's "random" nicknames in Yo-kai Watch 2 are: Dreater, Barnie, Chomp, and Crunchy.

Origin

Baku is based on the dream eating youkai of the same name. Originally from China, this beast is described as having "a bear's body, small eyes like a rhino, a long snout, strong legs like a tiger's and a spotted pelt": overall it resembles a tapir, and in fact the word "baku" is also used to refer to the animal.

This creature will feed on good and bad dreams alike while people are asleep. Those who are woken up by nightmares will invoke its name to let it devour them so they can peacefully go back to sleep, and it's said that even the general Hideyoshi Toyotomi kept a picture of a baku by his bedside to keep nightmares away. It is also said that anyone who sleeps on a baku's pelt will never get sick.
