Sproink (Japanese: のぼせトンマン Nobosetonman) is a Boss Yo-kai. In Yo-kai Watch 2, Sproink can be befriended, and is a Fire-attribute Rare Yo-kai of the Eerie tribe. Introduced as Rank B, this form was promoted to Rank A with Yo-kai Watch Busters.

In Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble, Sproink can be fused with Sproink S Parts to form Sproink S.


A large pig Yo-kai with a round belly and a puckered belly button, with a single horn, thick purple lips and drooping ears, and his green tongue is always hanging out. He wears a yellow swimming mask, a grey towel tied around his shoulder and two wrist bands, as well as white boxers and a blue loin cloth with a hot spring symbol on it. He carries a bath bucket in each hand.

In his friend form, however, he becomes significantly smaller, and his bath buckets no longer protect his belly button.



Blazion, Swelterrier, and Swelton

He hangs out with them all the time.

Abilities and Powers

When Sproink bathes in a hot bath, the water becomes incredibly hot, so hot that most people become dizzy.

Sproink will either attack by flinging one of his washbuckets at a single Yo-kai for damage, or toss a soap bar under their feet to Inspirit them, making them unable to act. He can also perform a butt stomp that will hit all front Yo-kai. His weakness is his belly button, but since he protects it with his washbuckets you must first target his face so he will shield himself, exposing it in the process. Attacking his belly button enough times will knock him down, but as you keep striking it he will gradually turn red until he gets back on his feet and unleash his Soultimate move, which deals heavy Fire-attribute damage to all front Yo-kai. To avoid it, simply aim all fire at his head instead, and avoid setting off any Soultimate Moves that target all enemies.

In his friend form, he doesn't have any attacking phases. His soultimate move only hits one foe, and you can only aim at his body.


Sproink showed up in EP015 at the hot springs area that Nathan Adams was visiting as he tried various ways to get rid of Sproink. It wasn't until Mr. Batham turning up the hot spring to a scorcher that caused Sproink to retreat.

In EP027, Sproink was seen in Yo-kai-lifornia where he was among the Yo-kai waiting in line for the release of the Yo-kai Watch Model Zero.

In EP081, Sproink, Blazion, Swelterrier and Swelton enjoy a party at Nate's House - as suggested by Blazion - and causing extreme heat to Nate and his friends.

In EP091, Sproink was with Swelterrier's group participate in the Red and White Song Battle as the 'Atti Soul Brothers', on behalf of the Red Team.
