Depiction in Anime
Let's Go! Tamagotchi
- Fireball a-rockin', yeah yeah yeah! (etc.)
In Japanese their song is:
- Hinotama rock, yeah yeah yeah! (etc.)
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.
