Physical Traits

Nathan Adams Animation artwork

Nathan's initial animation physical appearance.

Nathan is a young boy with a fair-skin, big black eyes and brown hair worn with three large spikes that resemblance cowlicks. A small amount of hair sticks down at his neck. He wears his Yo-kai Watch on his left wrist.

His well known appearance is that he wears a red short with white rim on each sleeve and color. On his arm is a blue and white design. His cargo pants are light grey and worn with a brown belt, while his booth resemble a pair of white shoes accent by blue and red. Those are the clothing Nathan wears in Yo-kai Watch and Yo-kai Watch 2.

In Yo-kai Watch 3, Nathan wears a red short sleeved jacket with white stars on the arms that he wears open. Beneath his jacket, he wears a blue colored shirt with a white rim. He wears a beige cargo ancle pants with brown high-top sneakers with black laces and a light brown belt.

In several episodes, Nathan wears different clothing than its original clothing. In Manjimutt: Part 4 until The Legend of Shogunyan, he is seen wearing an orange shirt with white rim on each sleeve and collar, matching the star at his chest and a red sweater. He wears those clothing as well in Gourmet School Lunch: Meal 4 Fried Chicken! until Yo-kai Yoink. He later re-appeared with the same clothing in Professor Vacant and the Mysterious Mansion until The Legendary Milk Cloth.

However, in Start Your Engines! The Yo-1 Grand Prix! until Yo-kai Kon-tan, he wore new clothing based from the appearance of his clothing from Yo-kai Watch 3. He wears a blue shirt, a red short-sleeve jacket with white stars on each side, and white jeans. In Yo-kai Mistank until Yo-kai Ecolojii, he wears a white shirt, black and white striped undershirt, and red sweater, and green jeans, but from Yo-kai Oreryu until now, he wears the same clothing from Yo-kai Mistank until Yo-kai Ecolojii.


Nate is a fun kid but tends to come off as comedic. He enjoys being with his friends and the Yo-kai he befriended, even when they can be troublesome. His personality is very infectious and gains him many friends - however, one noticeable trait is how extremely average he is. This spreads even to his school marks and greatly annoys him, in fact he really is not average. Like most kids, Nathan does basic things- like watching television, messing up his room, staying up late at night to watch television or play games. But, however, he is very righteous and has a strong sense of justice when a real crisis pops up.
