Insomni has pale purple skin with a single red eye accented by pale blue eye shadow. A single stripe of navy blue goes across her face. She has long white hair worn in two large horns on top of her head, held by navy blue ribbon, and wears a navy blue top with a golden waistband that connects to a gold sash around her shoulders, and her bottom half is entirely navy blue with a golden flame in the end.
Insomni believes that it's more fun if you don't sleep. She also has an obsession for cute things.
When this Yo-kai Inspirits people, she makes them stay up all night, only for them to fall asleep during the day.
Yo-kai Watch animation series
Insomni appears in Yo-kai Insomni, first in a silhouetted form in Nate's room. Her effect causes Nate to refuse to go to sleep and stay up all night reading comics. The following day, it turns out that Insomni has been Inspiriting everyone at school, giving them severe eye bags and the appearance of zombies. Insomni is eventually identified and threatens to make Nate "sleep forever" for interfering with her. Nate summons Baku to take her on. After their attacks collided, Insomni and Baku have a face off in a wrestling arena in which Insomni is eventually the winner. However, it turns out to be all a dream in Insomni's mind; she had passed out the instant she was hit by Baku's sleeping gas. Slowly rousing awake, Insomni tries to play off her loss but admits that the nap was "refreshing" and surrenders her Yo-Kai Medal. Once she departs, everyone falls asleep as her insomniac effects alleviate. The side effect of Insomni's effects being negated is that nobody is able to fall asleep later that night.
In EP089, she was summoned by Nate to wake up Slumberhog, who was causing his class to snore away. Insomni refused to do so claiming "Why would you ever wake up someone who's this cute when they're sleeping?!" However, she fell under Slumberhog's effect and went to sleep as well.
In the first game, Insomni operates the elevator to the Yo-kai World. Insomni can also be found in the Infinite Inferno in the 5th and 6th circles.

Her Japanese name, "Fuumin", is a wordplay on "insomnia" (Japanese: 不眠 Fūmin), and Fuumin, the nickname of the Japanese gravure idol Fumie Hosokawa. Her English name, "Insomni", is a truncation of insomnia.
- Similar to Wotchagot, the Japanese name for her Soultimate Move references the title of a Japanese variety show that ran on Kansai TV from 1985 to 1987.
- In the anime, her voice was edited with autotuning. But in the Recap, it wasn't digitally altered at all.
