Ekakitchi (えかきっち Ekakitchi) is a Tamagotchi character who first appeared on the Tamagotchi School website.
Ekakitchi has a body similar to Kuchipatchi's. It has light pink skin, a white stomach with a pink swirl on it, a yellow beak, and dark round eyes. It wears a red beret with a heart design identical to the one on Ciaotchi's hat. It usually holds a paintbrush.
Ekakitchi's stomach can be painted or drawn on.
In the Anime
Ekakitchi briefly appears as a background character in Tamagotchi: The Movie. It is seen with Ciaotchi when all of the Tamagotchis are trying to wake up Blackholetchi.
Ekakitchi debuted on the Tamagotchi School's website. It mainly appeared in one of the mini-games, in which the player paints pictures on Ekakitchi's stomach.
Ekakitchi's character is the basis for the toy "Ekakitchi's Trace Paper Ciaotchi!" (えかきっちでトレースしちゃおっち!). The toy is shaped like Ekakitchi, and functions as a sketchpad. The front of the toy has a clear plastic cover. Several cards come with the toy that can be slid behind the plastic cover. The cards have outline images of Tamagotchi characters, shapes, and messages. Then a sheet of translucent paper is laid over the toy. The images on the cards will show through the paper, and can be traced.
Ekaki (絵かき) is a Japanese word for "painter".
- In Ekakitchi's original artwork, it is depicted as being about half as big as Ciaotchi. In Tamagotchi: the Movie, Ekakitchi is depicted as the same size as Ciaotchi.
