Blazion is a fiery lion yo-kai with a white scar on his forehead. His mane and eyebrows are burning flame and his fur is orange. He has large hands and forearms with red spirals on them. He wears a grey-black martial artist robe. He is short (about half as tall as Nate) but his mane is about half his height, he's also barefooted.
Blazion is very bold and motivated in the anime. He firmly believes that hard work is something to be proud of, and it makes people feel better. He is very active as well. In the original Japanese, Blazion only says "Mera", which was replaced by animal-like exclamations (which can make him sound like a dog when Blazion is being very hot-blooded in a given scene) in the English dub, and during the fight with Noway, he says "Muri!/No way!."
It was revealed in EP097 that Blazion can talk normally while he was in his flameless form. Although this is true, he can speak a few words with his manes. So far, the only quotes he said were "No way!" and "Sorry sorry I'm so sorry!"
Blazion has the power to make someone extremely motivated and passionate, especially about work. However, the people under his influence risk getting carried away and become oblivious to other people's feelings, like when Blazion inspirited Nate's Negatibuzz-inspirited dentist, and Blazion can release fires.
In the English dub, Blazion is said to make others competitive.
He is first encountered in EP006 and possesses Nate and Eddie. After scoldings from Whisper and Bear, Nate summons Hungramps to confront him. Blazion stops possessing Eddie, but only to possess Katie. Nate summons Happierre to calm everyone down and Blazion gives Nate his medal. Later in the episode, he is summoned to pump up a Negatibuzz-inspirited Dr. Smiles.
In EP013, he confronts Chatalie and says what she is doing things the wrong way. In the end, however, Whisper says it was a bad idea to call Blazion causing the hot-blooded lion to bite Whisper's head.
In EP015, he is summoned to get rid of Sproink in the hot springs. However, when he touches the water, he floats above it and his jaw hangs open. Whisper notes that this is because he's mimicking the lion-shaped "waterfalls".
In EP030, he burns So-Sorree as payback for what the insincere apology Yo-kai made Nate do to his classmates and Whisper. So-Sorree fumes at the three of them and Blazion, Whisper, and Nate mock him by mimicking his signature insincere apology.
In EP032, Nate summons Blazion to deal with Lie-in Heart and prevent the other lion Yo-Kai from making Bear procrastinate on his homework. However, Lie-in Heart ends up convincing Blazion that his unbound enthusiasm is reckless.
In EP081, he and his fellow hot clan members (Swelterrier, Swelton, and Sproink) make Nate, Whisper, and Jibanyan's day super hot. Luckily, Blizzaria arrives and makes it cool, only to make it worse after and unintentionally freezing her seven friends/victims.
In EP088, he helps Inaho and USApyon's rocket fly.
In EP091, he, Swelterrier, Swelton, and Sproink perform for the Red Team.
In EP097, the Phantom Thief Kopin (Unshelltered) steals his fiery manes. However, this allow him to talk normally. Inaho finds replacements for his stolen fiery manes so that Blazion would be able to become fired up and throw a fastball strike at USApyon. Kopin returns his manes, but Inaho still says he stole Blazion's heart.
In EP113, he gets invited to sing with Blizzaria's group: "Iroiro Tsuclover Z", which consists of the Yo-kai that helped Inaho and USApyon build their rocket (Fusafusan, Poofessor and Statiking). Blazion accepts the offer and falls in love with Blizzaria. After the performance, Nate and Whisper are still unimpressed, but Swelterrier, Swelton, and Sproink are infuriated at Blazion's hot clan betrayal.
In EP122, he reveals his Yo-kai origins to Inaho, USApyon, and Blizzaria. He takes off his manes to become flameless to do so. He was once a circus lion that entertained his audience. However, the circus tent was accidentally set on fire one day. While trapped in his cage, he noticed that a child had tripped. To save him, he rammed his head against the bars of the cage, and broke free, creating the scar on his forehead in the process. Taking the child, he leaped onto a platform, and threw the boy to safety. However, the platform broke, sending Blazion into the burning flames, resulting in his death. Blazion's heartbreaking story touches Inaho and USApyon, but still leaves Blizzaria unimpressed.
In EP125, he, his fellow hot clan members, Inaho, and USApyon learn about Blizzaria's origins. The hot clan attempts to hide Frostina's glacial clip, but end up freezing and failing.
In EP130, he makes a Dream Land cameo, and wins a prize.
In EP132, he is summoned luckily and inspirits Katie's dad to ignite the BBQ grill, but the lighter still would not go on. Blazion lets Nate kindle the grill and the latter succeeds in doing so.
Blazion appears on the 3rd Floor of the Construction Site at night (Downtown Springdale). He also appears in the 3rd and 4th Circles of the Infinite Inferno.
Blazion can be found near trash and under cars in the Excellent Expressway.
Automatically befriended in Inaho's story.
Blazion can be befriended on hidden stage 2 and in the Yo-kai World while his SS Awoken form can be a pull from the crank-a-kai though he is very rare (5% with a maxed crank)
Blazion is one of Nate's usual choice whenever he needs a Brave Tribe Yo-kai.
Blazion gave Inaho his medal after realising how fired up the two of them were.
Blazion ends up interacting with Blizzaria a lot, due to her constant appearances at their gatherings and parties. Although he showed a resentment and fear towards her at first, he agreed to perform with her in episode 113 and consequently developed feelings for her, much to the dismay of the Hot Clan.
Swelterrier, Swelton, and Sproink
Blazion goes together with the fellow hot Yo-kai. Although it unclear what he thinks of them precisely, he seems to enjoy their company.
Blazion bumped into Roughraff and fought him. They beat each other up in a draw match. Roughraff liked how tough Blazion was and became his friend.
When Blazion first met Lie-in Heart, he seemed to be annoyed by his laziness. After Lie-in Heart convinced Blazion that Bear needed more time and that making him do it now would make him worse, Blazion seemed touched by it and seemed to agree with Lie-in Heart's logic.
NOTE: Remember that Blazion won't always end up having these stats at 99 due to attitude.
- Befriended: "Blaze! (Let's be friends!)"
- Loafing: "Blah... zzz..."
- Being traded: "Blaze BLAZE! (I am ON FIRE about this friendship!)"
- Receiving food (favorite): "Blaze!"
- Receiving food (normal): "Blasé..."
- Receiving food (disliked): "Blaze..."
His Japanese name, "Merameraion", is a combination of mera mera (メラメラ. Japanese onomatopoeia for "burning flames) and the English lion. It could also be a wordplay on the name of the Merlion statue in Singapore. His English name, "Blazion", is a portmanteau of blaze (or blazing) and lion.
His Spanish name, "Flamileón". is a combination of flama ("flame") and león ("lion").
- He is voiced by Brent Pendergrass.
- According to him, both Blazion and Noway were the first two characters he auditioned.
- Blazion's "random" nicknames in Yo-kai Watch 2 are: Blazan, Zamba, Liferno, and King.
- In Yo-kai Watch, Blazion was at first portrayed as speaking normally, but Yo-kai Watch 2 and onwards adopted the anime's portrayal of him only being able to say "mera" ("blaze" in the English translation).
