Hovernyan (Japanese: フユニャン Fuyunyan) is a Rank B Wind-attribute Rare Yo-kai of the Brave tribe.


A blue cat Yo-kai with a white chest, muzzle, and paw tips. His nose and inner-ear are dull pink and facial expression is in contrast from most of the Cat Yo-kai. At the center of his forehead is a white scar. He wears a dull gray belt which has a swirled sphere on it, and a long red cloth worn as a cloak.


Hovernyan as a normal cat.


Hovernyan has a very righteous personality, doing what's right often and standing up for his friends. Hovernyan is shown to be very patient, but after awhile he can lose focus of the task he is given. He is also very embarrassed about becoming Meganyan. He is seen to act very childishly as seen in the movie when introducing the "Rewind Stone" and made his own sound effects. He has strange ways of doing normal things.

  • He is a wandering spirit as opposed to an earthbound spirit like Jibanyan.
  • According to Yo-kai Watch 3, overeating causes Hovernyan to turn back to Meganyan.
  • In the dubbed movie, during the scene where Hovernyan calls Nathaniel's and Nate's attention after Dame Dedtime turns into Dame Demona, the sub-captions refer to him as Robonyan, in spite of Robonyan not even appearing in that scene.
