Yoink has a huge head, pale turquoise tongue, and long arms. He wears a blue kimono with a dull brown sash, sandals, and a green furoshiki with white swirls on his face as a mask.
Yoink is proud of his abilities, as he can convince anyone to transfer ownership of property to others permanently. "No take backs!" is his personal catchphrase and philosophy.
Anyone Inspirited by Yoink becomes compelled to borrow things from others, then refuse to return them to the rightful owners. Yoink's Inspiriting can also compel people to lend things to others, and force people to express their deepest desires for property and possessions. Yoink also possesses the ability to transfer ownership of even otherwise outrageous and intangible things, such as celebrities and popularity.
