Makiko (まきこ Makiko), full name Madeleine Kirie Dotchine (マドレーヌ・キリエ・ドッチーヌ Madorēnu Kirie Dotchīnu) is a special adult character that debuted on the Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus in Japan, and later the Tamagotchi Connection Version 4 and the TamaTown Tama-Go worldwide. Makiko resembles a purple Memetchi, but she also wears a bow that is a deeper shade of purple than herself, a frilly white dress and magenta stiletto boots. She has two long, curly strands of hair, one at each side of her head. On Tamagotchi Connection Versions 4 and 5, a special method is required to obtain her. Her body shows resemblance, but her hair, cheeks, eyes, mouth, boots, dress, and bow show a difference between her and her rival. In the anime, the spots on Makiko's bow are now plain purple.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 4: Makiko is obtainable from Memetchi. Memetchi evolves from Young Memetchi or Ichigotchi, after 48 hours. Memetchi can evolve to Makiko with 350 points in style and a total of 450 skill points.

Makiko is characterized as being very beautiful, especially when it comes to her hair. She dispises rain because she believes it will ruin her "perfect" hair. This is evidence showing that Makiko is passionate about her hair.
She is a popular character in Tamagotchi Town.
In Anime and MoviesIn the anime and movie adaptations of Tamagotchi, Makiko is a classmate of Mametchi's. She adores him and is part of the official Secret Mametchi Fan Club.
Makiko's mom spoils Makiko, and this was something Makiko really wanted. This is said to be why Memetchi and Makiko are rivals. She is shown to compete with Memetchi in terms of popularity appearance as well. When Memetchi has any faults or problems, Makiko takes the opportunity to point it out. She is sometimes snobby towards others, and even more obsessed with curls than Memetchi, but she still cares for her Tama Friends.
Her rivalry with Memetchi is depicted as being stronger than her love for Mametchi; in one episode with a competition, Ringotchi (another Mametchi Fan Club member) worries about their club's status if they beat Mametchi's team, but Makiko throws the thought aside, focusing on simply beating the other team and looking impressive.
Whenever she takes a step, there is an audible squeaking sound.
She is voiced by Akemi Okamura.
Makiko is a Japanese name given to some girls. However, in Makiko's case, it may be derived from the word Makige (まきげ) which means "curly hair".
Majorite is Makiko's mother. She has never told anyone her married name as she prefers to be known as Majorite. This is probably because she never speaks of her divorced husband. She is a collector of hats and a regular in designer shops. On the V5, Makiko will evolve into Majorite if she becomes a parent. Majorite is a light shade of pink and wears a violet hat with multiple curls coming from under her hat she has big lips and wears a violet dress that appears to be much longer then Makiko's dress.
On the Tamagotchi & Earth EXPO, her job is to run the tourism booth.
