Thornyan (Japanese : トゲニャン ) is a Rank B Wind-attribute Yo-kai of the Charming tribe.

Thornyan evolves from Jibanyan when fused with Coughkoff.

In Yo-kai Watch Busters, he is one of the Yo-kai required to unlock Shogunyan.

Appearance

An ivy-green cat with dull pink nose. His inner-ear is dark yellow, while his muzzle, paw tips, and chest fur are white. He wears a white collar with a dark orange sphere, and around his stomach is a dull orange band. On his head are nine long spikes with white and emerald coloring nearing the tips. His tail flames are orange, yellow, and white and are also spiked. 

Personality

Relationships

Abilities and Powers

As Thornyan is Jibanyan with a cold, Thornyan can shoot spikes when sneezing; those spikes cause the targets that get hit by them to grow their own spikes and makes them catch a cold as well.

How to befriend

Yo-kai Watch

Fuse Jibanyan with Coughkoff.

Also, in Downtown Springdale, behind a fence, you can find Thornyan as a hot-spot. You can befriend him through normal means, but unless you soft reset, you only get one chance.

Yo-kai Watch 2

Go to the apartments in Shopper's Row, and speak to Coughkoff.

Quotes

Loafing: "Timeowt..."

When being released from the Crank-a-kai(Wibble Wobble)" "Whee! It's great to be free! Thanks for getting me out of there!"

History

Thornyan debuts in EP045 after Jibanyan catches a cold and transforms into Thornyan. After Nate and Whisper fail to cure his illness, he ends up getting Hidabat and Blazion sick.

Trivia

Origin

As a rare non-Japanese origin instance, Thornyan might be based on the cactus cat from the American Southwest, a bobcat-like animal covered in needle-like hair and with a branching tail resembling a saguaro. It's said to roam through the desert at night and slash cacti open with the spikes on its paws, coming back the following nights to lap at the fermented juices.

Name Origin

  • "Thornyan" is a portmanteau of thorn and nyan. The former is also the translation of the toge part of "Togenyan", as 'toge' means spike.
  • "Dornyan" is a combination of dorn (thorn) and nyan.

In other languages

  • Japanese: トゲニャン Togenyan
  • Korean: 가시냥 Gasinyang
  • Spanish: Espinyan
  • Italian: Spinyan
  • German: Dornyan
  • French: Epinyan
