When this Yo-kai Inspirits people, it makes their heart beat really fast to make them nervous.
Terrorpotta showed up during a race in Nate's school's sports festival in EP037, Inspiriting him just before he participates in the 100 meter dash. Despite feeling sickened by the strain his fast-beating heart puts on his body, Nate manages to push through and take part in the race.
Terrorpotta can be found as an overworld enemy in the Jumbo Slider area in the forest above Breezy Hills.
Terrorpotta can also be freed from the Crank-a-kai in the present day with Orange Coins.

Terrorpotta might be based on the haniwa, terracotta clay statues from the Kofun period (3rd to 6th centuries AD). Possibly derived from the Chinese custom of sculpting clay simulacra to replace the tradition of burying the emperor's retainers along with him after the funeral, they decorated tombs and burial mounds and came in a variety of shapes, from animals to human figures, to warriors tasked with protecting the deceased. In modern years, due to the overall aura of mystery that surrounds Japan's prehistoria, haniwa are portrayed in fiction as living creatures or otherwise possessing supernatural powers. Most notably in the animated series Steel Jeeg, haniwa are clay monsters born from the depths of the earth who fight for the demonic queen Himika (who is herself based on Himiko, the legendary shaman queen who lived in Japan during the 3rd century).
"Dokidoki" is a combination of dokidoki (Japanese: ドキドキ,onomatopoeia for heartbeat) and doki (Japanese: 土器,"earthenware").
"Terrorpotta" is combination of terracotta with terror and pot.
