Kuchipatchi (くちぱっち Kuchipatchi) is a male Tamagotchi adult. His first debut was on the Original Tamagotchi, and is one of the main mascots for Tamagotchi along with Mametchi and Memetchi. His female counterpart is Yonepatchi.
His birthday is May 18.
Kuchipatchi has a round, light green body with two large lips, beady eyes, and stubby arms and legs. On the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, he can also be pink or yellow.
Kuchipatchi is a carefree, gentle type. He is mild and lazy, but very romantic and a daydreamer. He sometimes cheats if playing games. He has a supersized passion for food, especially Tama-Donuts, and loves to take naps.
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. On the V1, V2, V3 and Tama-Go, he is a healthy character. On the V6, he is an average care character. He is mainly an average character on modern Tamagotchi releases.
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 him touring Japan, and later Paris and Hawaii. The blog has since closed.

Anime and Film Depiction
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. Because of his rubber-like body, he also sometimes bounces around uncontrollably. 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 or agreeing with someone. He isn't too bright, and he sometimes talks about food when he is supposed to be thinking about something else. He drools a lot.
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, they may just be coincidential. They are simply sound effects.
In the anime, he is voiced by Asami Yaguchi.
In Tamagotchi: Happiest Story in the Universe!, it is revealed that Kuchipatchi is allergic to feathers since he sneezes enourmously when one lands on his nose. Also in this movie, there is a bouncing sound when Kuchipatchi walks; this is not audible in other Tamagotchi anime.
Kuchi means "mouth" or "lips", referring to Kuchipatchi's large beak.

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, to tell between one another, one baby has 1 line of hair, and the other has 3.
In the anime version they say "yah-tchi" in the English version or "datchi" in the Japanese version; but one says "yah" or "da" and the other says "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.
PatchimanKuchipatchi slide evolves into Patchiman (ぱっちマン) 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.
Patchiman also appears in the anime.
