Hinozall (Japanese: 日ノ神 Hi no Shin) is a Boss Yo-kai that first appeared in Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters, and would later go on to be the first Yo-kai to obtain an Awakened form, named Hinozall Awoken (Japanese: 覚醒日ノ神 Kakusei Hi no Shin), which appears as a Boss Yo-kai in Yo-kai Watch Busters: Moon Rabbit Team.
In Yo-kai Watch 3, Hinozall and his Awoken variation can be befriended, with both being Lightning-attribute Rank S Yo-kai of the Shady tribe, with Hinozall being a Rare Yo-kai while his Awoken variation is a Kami Yo-kai instead.
Hinozall is based on Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino, which the two of them shares the same similarities in appearance. He has red messy hair, with purple at the loose ends and wears a crown on his head. His skin color is also pink, with a green color that starts from top of his head until his nose. He wears a black jacket with a gray shirt beneath. He is seen with his desk containing a computer, coffee mug, a Nintendo 3DS console, a cellphone and a paper. He has six arms in total and wears his wristwatch on the right side of one of his arms. Beneath his desk, there are four skulls seen as well a spirit in the middle. Also, around his desk are six blue wisp-like flames.
The awoken form of Hinozall gives him a different appearance, which gives him an azure colored hairstyle with purple ends. The same pink skin color, but the green color from his eyes to his nose is colored red. He wears a gold colored jacket with a gold colored tie and a black shirt beneath. He has two screens on his desk, using both arms on his keyboard, while his other arms are holding two colored Nintendo 3DS consoles, which one is black and the other blue. In one hand he holds his cellphone, and in another, he holds his pen. His desk has a blue top, and beneath the color is black having a golden orb in the middle. Below his desk are as well several skulls and purple flames that rises next to his face. He has a golden ring on his back surrounded with golden flames.
Hinozall is talkative and proud of his work, but he is a bit of a workaholic. He likes to create his own spaces and has a lot of potential control over the world in game. His character sometimes breaks the "fourth wall" with his powers. He also possesses a Yo-kai Watch, which he uses to summon various Yo-kai. In the Japanese version of the game, Gerappo Dance Train plays when he is fought. In the English version, the opening version of Yo-kai Watch 2 plays instead.
He can teleport short distances, call for beams of lasers, sometimes referred as "The Level 5 Beams" to shoot from the sky and to call in his employees to protect him. Later in the games he can also create a very strong shield to protect himself, as well as heal himself with a "3 hour nap".
Hinozall also says several different phrases while battling. The phrases are "Yeah, I'll have the usual.", "Yes, one beam please.", "Get it right already!","Thats It!","Good!" and "little to the right.". If the player hits him, he will sometimes react by saying "Oof" or "Ahh".
