Keita And Corn

Nate being inspirited by Cornfused.

Inspirits (Japanese: とりつき Toritsuki) are the effect of a Yo-kai's power possessing their environment, mainly towards humans or other Yo-kai. They can be either positive in nature or negative.

While Yo-kai inspiriting is present in the anime, and is treated as the cause of many of the suddenly-strange incidents around Nate and other people with or without a Yo-kai Watch, it actually occurs much more commonly and is used to fight more so than actual attacks.

Overview

In battle, there are Yo-kai that possess their allies to boost certain traits to assist them in combat, which are noted as "positive inspirits", with the effects fading after 5 or more turns of battle. When a player's Yo-kai is negatively inspirited, the player can rotate them to the back row then purify them by hitting the Purify option and follow the ensuing instructions, which will offer bonus EXP. Rarely, the player will get a Super Lucky result, which results in a tripled EXP bonus. On the flip side of the proverbial coin, negative inspirits on opponents can help replenish a player's Yo-kai's Soultimate Gadge by having their Yo-kai friends attack them while the opponent is under the inspirits. Do note that the opponent Yo-kai can purify themselves to rid themselves of negative inspirits when enough time has passed.

Effecting Inspiriting chances

  • Boss Yo-kai, while not completely immune to negative inspiriting in the main games, do have a high defense against inspirits.
  • Three Tribe Unity Bonuses revolve around Inspiriting: the Eerie and Shady tribes have Unity Bonuses that boost Inspirit accuracy, while the Slippery tribe's Unity Bonus boosts defense against Inspirit.
  • Also, several Skills revolve around Inspirits:
    • Cursed Skin increases all stats by one level when the Yo-kai gets Inspirited.
    • Hanging In will ignore any negative Inspirit's effects.
    • Miraculous Scales & Matchless Shell completely ignores negative Inspirits.
    • Mine hoards all positive Inspirits.
    • Long Lasting extends the length of all positive Inspirits.
  • The Yo-kai Watch 1-exclusive Equipment Ancient Scale will protect Yo-kai from negative Inspirits in exchange for Loafing around more, while the Crystal Ball makes positive Inspirits last longer.

Trivia/Notes

  • Based on when Katie was inspirited by Babblong, D'wanna, and Mimikin, it appears as though that while inspirited people gain the ability to see Yo-kai, but when the person is left by that Yo-kai, they may not remember anything of this.
  • It is likely that the term "inspiriting" was used instead of "possessing" to avoid any possible backlash or controversy from religious groups.
