Kuchipatchi (くちぱっち Kuchipatchi) is a male Tamagotchi character that was originally featured on the Original Tamagotchi and has appeared on many modern releases since. He is the main adult character of the Kuchipa Family (くち属). Kuchipatchi is famously noted to resemble a green kuchi leaf, and has become one of the most recognizable Tamagotchi characters of all time. It is said he may be lazy, but very romantic. He is one of the playable characters in the Corner Shop series. His birthday is May 18th. His female counterpart is Yonepatchi.
Kuchipatchi is a rather common character. He usually cheats when playing games. A carefree, gentle type. He is mild and lazy, but very romantic and a daydreamer.
The Nintendo Power guide to the Tamagotchi Gameboy game stated: "Kuchipatchi is a middle-of-the-road kind of guy. It's generally quiet and polite, but neither its IQ nor its sports skills will light any fires."
Kuchipatchi's health status as a character has become debatable over recent years. In his original appearance in the original Tamagotchi, Kuchipatchi was obtained through neglecting a Tamatchi or taking high-quality care of Kuchitamatchi, leaving his health status average at best. In recent years, however, Kuchipatchi's health status is often compared to Mametchi's as well as Memetchi's.
For the release of the Tamagotchi Movie, a blog was started to show behind-the-scenes images, featuring Kuchipatchi wandering through the film's studio. After the film's release, it became Kuchipatchi's personal blog, showing his touring Japan, and later Paris and Hawaii. The blog has since closed.
Anime and Film DepictionEdit
In the Tamagotchi movie and anime adaptations, Kuchipatchi is shown to have a family (Papapatchi, Mamapatchi, and twin siblings Chibipatchi). He also is very flexible, as seen when Kuchipatchi gets stretched into a trampoline to help save Tanpopo, Memetchi, Mametchi and an egg when they fell down a tall building. Eating is one of his favourite pastimes, and he often has food on his mind. It is revealed that Kuchipatchi has a habit of saying "dacchi" at the end of every sentence, and uses the word as exclamations as well. In the English version, he says "tchi" at the end of his sentences and "Ya-tchi!" when he's excited.
Unlike other Tamagotchis, Kuchipatchi is supposedly shown to make occasional deep trumpet-like noises when he moves. However, since the other characters do not react to these noises, they are most likely not made by Kuchipatchi, rather they are simply sound effects. The movie reveals that Kuchipatchi also has the ability to stretch his body out and use it as a trampoline or rope. He also has a habit of bouncing around uncontrollably like a rubber ball.
Yangu/Young Kuchipatchi is a teen-level character that bears resemblence to a minature Kuchipatchi. Young Kuchipatchi was originally featured on the Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus and later the Tamagotchi Connection Version 4. Young Kuchipatchi is described to want to grow up "just like Kuchipatchi". He is determined, driven and dedicated.
UraKuchipatchi is a character originaly featured on the Ura Jinsei Enjoy Tamagotchi Plus and later the Nintendo DS Game, Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 2 and Tamagotchi Connection Version 4.5. UraKuchipatchi resembles Kuchipatchi, though has a horn on his head and emits the blue Ura glow.
Kuchipatchi's twin baby brothers in diapers, who are at Child Level. The only thing they say is "Babu". In Tamagotchi Corner Shop 3, they rarely say "Dada". All of Kuchipatchi's friends can't wait until they learn to talk so they know what they're saying.
In anime version they say "dacchi" or "ya-tchi".
Kuchipatchi's father. He is a darker shade of green than Kuchipatchi, and wears a toupee. When he takes it off, he can easily be confused with Kuchipatchi. When Kuchipatchi mates with another Tamagotchi on the Famitama/V5/V5.5 and starts a new generation, he will evolve into Papapatchi.
Patchiman (ぱっちマン)EditKuchipatchi slide evolves into Patchiman when he uses the Hero Set (a blue box with star patterns exclusive to Kuchipatchi, Patchiman and Kikitchi, the latter does not slide evolve when using the Hero Set) on the Tamagotchi Plus Color and the Hexagon, and when used again, Patchiman slide evolves to Kuchipatchi again. This can be done as long as you have Kuchipatchi/Patchiman. Patchiman is exactly like Kuchipatchi, the only difference is he is wearing a silver helmet that has holes that don't cover his eyes and a red cape. When Kuchipatchi becomes Patchiman, there is a small animation of Patchiman jumping out of the Hero Set, flying backwards while the "Gain Intelligence GUTS" music from the Entama is played. He crashes face first, gets embarrassed, and emits light (like an evolving Tamagotchi) from his body afterwards. After that, Patchiman jumps for joy, and the animation ends, leaving Patchiman in your care. Like Kuchipatchi, he will become orange for the rest of the day if he drinks three bottles of orange juice in a row. Patchiman will remain in the Patchiman form when he is sleeping.
Main page: YukipatchiYukipatchi is a snow girl version of Kuchipatchi. Kuchipatchi is deeply in love with Yukipatchi, and Yukipatchi has the same feelings for Kuchipatchi.
