Dummkap (Japanese: ばか頭巾 Bakazukin) is a Rank E Lightning-attribute Yo-kai of the Mysterious tribe.


Dummkap has a similar appearance to Wazzat. He has the appearance of an orange hat. He has thick, light orange (and/or yellow) lips that form the brim with scattered square teeth. He has a blue bow/ribbon around him, somewhat like a nose. On top are two eye-stalks with swirled eyes.


Dummkap is extremely vengeful, specifically Inspiriting boys simply because he was mistreated as an ordinary seat cushion.



The two Hat Yo-kai become friends due to their similar pasts and grudges.

Abilities and Powers

Dummkap can cause his Inspirited targets to act very foolishly, causing people to look down on the victim. He triggers this effect by biting the top of his victims' heads.

In the anime, this ability only affects boys as Dummkap specifically targets them.

Dummkap first appears in EP064, in which he causes Nate, Eddie and Bear to act foolishly, much to the dismay of the girls. Nate realizes this and when confronts him, he summons Tattletell to have the hat Yo-Kai reveal his origins. He was once a seat cushion used by schoolchildren which also doubled as a snow hat, but after one kid farted on him, they began to use him to play dumb games, often involving him getting hit. Eventually, he was abandoned after being tossed in a pond, and become a Yo-Kai who bore a grudge against all boys. Soon after explaining his motive, Wazzat appears and becomes quick friends with Dummkap, as Wazzat nursed a grudge against the girl who abandoned him. Both Yo-Kai merrily float away as Nate realizes that they make a good partnership. At the end of the episode, they pose as hats worn by comedians and use their Inspirits to make them perform their acts, albeit at an abysmal standard nobody likes.

Dummkap is summoned in EP090 to deal with Flushback in order to stop the turtle Yo-kai from tormenting Nate. This plan, however, sacrificed any trust Katie had in Nate that day as he was expected to be a responsible partner for a project.
