Barnaby Bernstein (Japanese: 熊島 五郎太 Kumashima Gorōta), more commonly referred to his nickname of Bear (Japanese: クマ Kuma), is a character in Yo-kai Watch, and is one of Nate, Eddie, and Katie's friends.

Physical traits

He wears very casual clothing which makes him seem a little like a biker. His hairstyle and the bandage on his cheek give him a very rough aura that actually contrasts with his gentler though slightly bumbling nature. There appear to be dark rings around his aggressive eyes that make him a little intimidating to behold.


He is a bit of a bumbler but despite his thuggish appearance, he is a rather gentle person. Bear is a bit of a glutton and is not shown to be athletic. However, in the anime, he, Nate, and Eddie share a love of soccer. He is unusually sensitive and can burst into tears.
