A Yo-kai Ark (Japanese: 妖怪アーク Yōkai āku) is a small, key-shaped item used to summon Yo-kai from the Yo-kai Watch Elda in the Yo-kai Watch Shadowside series. They are said to be the successor of Yo-kai Medals, featuring Lightside and Shadowside Yo-kai on both sides.

Rare versions with different colors also exist. The levels of rarity from least to more rare are Normal, Rare, Extreme Rare, Super Extreme Rare, and Ultimate Rare.[1]

It has been stated that Normal Arks have a clear color and a regular holo foil, Rare Arks have a clear color and a glittering holo foil, and Extreme Rare Arks have the colors of their tribes, as well as glittering holo foil.

There are also Shining Arks that are equal to Super Extreme Rare ones, and Gold Arks that are equal to Extreme Rare ones.

Information

Yo-kai Watch Shadowside Oni-o no Fukkatsu

Natsume holding Yo-kai Arks.

Yo-kai Arks represent the feelings that connect Yo-kai and humans. Just like Yo-kai Medals, they are given to select people once they fulfill a specific Yo-kai's needs.

Yo-kai can be summoned via the Yo-kai Watch Elda by putting the Ark into the keyhole, and saying the summoning chant while the Yo-kai appears in sight.

It was originally thought that the Arks were successors to the medals, however, due to their inclusion in Forever Friends, they may have existed in the past as well.

Trivia

EarlyJibanyanArc

Jibanyan's Ark with the Charming heart insignia.

  • In early depictions of the Arks, including their debut in the 4th movie, they had the insignias of the old Yo-kai tribes. These were later replaced by the symbols of the Shadowside tribes.
