Minochi (Japanese: やきモチ Yakimochi) is a Rank D Fire-attribute Yo-kai of the Brave tribe.

Appearance

Biology

Minochi is a muscular Yo-kai that has a shape of a popped mochi, like Mochismo. Unlike him, Minochi is not stark white, but appears to be pink hued. He wears a black robe around his waist and has an aggressive look on his popped face.

When he puffs up his cheeks and exhales a ghastly steam the person he sprays becomes jealous and cannot help but act irrationally as a result. This power can affect entire crowds of Yo-kai as well as humans.

The fact he is a rice cake means he can be eaten in an emergency, but that also allows him to be eaten to submission.

History

Minochi makes a debut in EP082.

Etymology

  • "Yakimochi" is derived from yakimochi (焼き餅, "roasted mochi"). It is also an idiom for "jealousy". It is unsure how this idiom came to be, but one theory traces it back to a homophony between yaku (妬く, "to be jealous") and yaku (焼く, "to burn, to roast").
  • "Minochi" is a combination of mine and mochi.
  • "Machimío" is a combination of "Macho" (Male), "Mochi" and "Mio" (Mine).

Trivia

  • Minochi's "random" nicknames in Yo-kai Watch 2 are: NV, Brad, Tuff, and Pinky.

Origin

Minochi's design is based on a wordplay:
