Goldenyan (Japanese: ゴルニャン Gorunyan) is a Rank S Lightning-attribute Rare Yo-kai of the Tough tribe.

Goldenyan is one of the Yo-Kai required to unlock Gilgaros.


A gold-plated robotic cat Yo-kai. Goldenyan has big sky blue eyes, an orange nose, and dull blue inner-ear. She has a wide opened mouth and pale yellow muzzle and chest. A big blue sphere rests in the center of the chest. Where her arms begin is a single piece of brown material, matching the pale brown band around the stomach. A jet pack is visible on the back, while the tail flames are blue. Her appearance is almost identical to Robonyan's.

In Whisper's dream the anime, Goldenyan is a bit vain; she states she can only shine in certain places since she is gold-plated. She also leaves when Katie summons her with her Yo-kai Watch.

Similar to Robonyan, she says "I'll be back" when she leaves. In the English dub, it says "Golde-nyout" when it leaves.


Yo-kai Watch

Goldenyan can be freed from the Crank-a-kai by using either Orange Coins, Five Star Coins or Special Coins.

In the first game, a Goldenyan lies in a state of low power within the Trophy Room located in the center of Gourd Pond Park, which is firstly accessed to the player by obtaining their first Yo-criminal Trophy. By collecting Trophies of captured Wanted Yo-kai, it helps revitalizes Goldenyan until she can stand. Collecting more Trophies help further optimize Goldenyan. Doing so will reward the player with 10 Crank-a-kai Coins of the following colors:

  • Enough so Goldenyan is standing: Red Coins
  • Half of Yo-criminal Trophies collected: Yellow Coins
  • Goldenyan highly optimized: Orange Coins
  • Nearly finished: Pink Coins
  • All Trophies obtained: Green Coins

Yo-kai Watch 2

Goldenyan can be freed from the Crank-a-kai by using Orange or Special coins.

Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble

Goldenyan is a Mission prize for players that managed to add 100 Yo-kai Wib Wobs to the Yo-kai Medallium.

In the Anime

In a dream in EP067, Katie summons Goldenyan -which refers to as "her best Yo-kai friend" with her own Yo-kai Watch in order to deal with Noway. However Goldenyan herself states she only shines in certain places and, despite Katie's pleads, leaves through a portal.
