A downcast-looking blue bird with aqua-colored feathers on its midsection. The bottom and feet are a dull yellow just like the beak. It hangs its head low, with the face on its torso matching its expression.
Not only she is constantly depressed, her unlucky influence on others only adds to her misery. She apologizes for any inconvenience she causes.
This Yo-kai makes others feel depressed and end sentences with"buhuhu". Buhu can also inflict bad luck, usually by creating the false impression that something good will happen, only for a mishap to ruin it soon after.
Befriended(Yo-kai Watch): "Boohoo... You're so strong... Do...you...wanna be...friends?"
Receiving food (favorite): "Boohoo...yum."
Receiving food (normal): "I'll eat it."
Receiving food (disliked): "Boohoo..."
Buhu first appears in EP010 in which she repeatedly gets in the way of Nate's attempts to get some food. When confronted by him, she reveals she was flying around until she crashed with a tree, causing her to forget her destination. She agrees to not cause him any more problems, but she later goes after Bear, giving him trouble while at school. Nate summons Robonyan to help Bear resist the influence of Buhu. With the matter settled, the bird Yo-kai gives Nate her Yo-kai Medal.
In EP027, Buhu was seen in Yo-kai-lifornia amongst the Yo-kai waiting in line to get the Yo-kai Watch Model Zero.
Buhu is first summoned in EP034 to drive Enerfly away from Eddie and into Nate, but she messes up and it's Enefly that ends up going after Nate instead.
In EP053, Buhu is summoned by Nate to help by getting a bird's-eye view of Dromp's maze only for Dromp to confuse Buhu by fogging up the area and causes her to leave. After Nate ends up in another one of Dromp's mazes, Buhu joins Nate into weeping over this predicament.
"Tohohogisu" combines tohoho (onomatopoeia for forlorn sobbing) and hototogisu ("lesser cuckoo"). "Buhu" is a corruption of the onomatopoeia boo-hoo.
In Spanish, "Ayay" is an spañol onomatopoeia of sobbing (Ayayay).
Besides sharing her inspiration with Skreek, the basis for Buhu's concept likely comes from the wordplay in her name.
Buhu is the first Yo-kai you befriend through battle in Yo-kai Watch.
In Japanese, Buhu's "tohoho-hokekyo comes from "ho-hokekyo", the onomatopoeia of the bush warbler's cry.
The two first dancing moves of Buhu's summoning chant were cut in the English Version.
