|Genders and Releases:|
Hinotamatchi (ひのたまっち Hinotamatchi) is a teenager character that debuted on the Tamagotchi Connection and has since appeared on many releases.
Hinotamatchi resembles a red fireball with no arms or legs. He has a beak and orange cheeks. When he gets angry, the flame on his head burns intensely.
Even though he has the face of the Kuchipatchi family, he's considered part of the Meme Family in Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus.
Hinotamatchi is a rebellious Tamagotchi that apparently finds rock music more interesting than classical music. He loves rock 'n' roll. His favourite food is sundaes and his least favourite food is doughnuts. Hinotamatchi doesn't like water. He is called a hothead (hence the look) because he is very stubborn. He talks like a tough guy, but is really just a good guy with a passionate heart.
Hinotamatchi is one of two teen characters obtainable on odd generations, and one of four teenagers in all. He can be any gender and will develop from Marutchi or Kinakomotchi from poor care. It can evolve into Mametchi, Kuchipatchi, Hanatchi or Masktchi.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 2
Appearing in even generations this time and still either gender, Hinotamatchi can be obtained from moderate care. Its favourite food is eggs and least favourite food is doughnuts.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 3
Hinotamatchi is similar to how he was on the V2. He is obtained from moderate care on even generations and can be either gender.

Tamagotchi Music Star
Depiction in AnimeOn the anime series Let's Go! Tamagotchi, he plays in a rock band as the guitarist, along with Tosakatchi and Togetchi. Their song is:
Fireball a-rockin', yeah yeah yeah! (etc.)
In Japanese their song is:
Hinotama rock, yeah yeah yeah! (etc.)
In the newer Tamagotchi anime, Tosakatchi is not included in the band and Hinotamatchi sings with a microphone instead of playing guitar. Hinotamatchi is a very minor character. He is not allowed to go ice skating because he could melt the ice in the rink.
"Hino" is the Japanese word for fire and "tama" means ball, so his name translates as Fireballtchi, which signifies his appearance.
