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.
He appears on an odd generation, and will develop from Marutchi or Kinakomotchi. He is the worse care teen, and the better care teen is Ichigotchi. He can evolve into Mametchi if there were no problems, Kuchipatchi if you were a little forgetful about caring for it, Hanatchi if you had trouble with half of his needs, or Masktchi if you take bad care.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 2
Appearing in even generations this time, he is obtained from moderate/poor care.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 3
Same as the V2.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 4
Is in the Male Meme Group. He is the worse care teen, the better care one being Gourmetchi.
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.
