Mametchi (まめっち Mametchi) is a male adult Tamagotchi character who debuted on the original Tamagotchi, and has appeared on many versions since, serving as the series mascot. Mametchi is in the Mame Family (まめ属 Mame Zoku) and his birthday is November 23, the same date as the release of the first Tamagotchi. On almost every Tamagotchi model he is the adult character obtained by having the healthiest care. His female counterpart is Chantotchi.
His appearance resembles a bright yellow mouse or rabbit-like creature with two round, dark blue ears on top of his big head, and large eyes. As of 2004 he has rosy pink cheeks as well.
In his original US artwork, he has a much leaner build, a smaller head and eyes, and a blue body.
In Tamagotchi L.i.f.e., he can be yellow, pink or blue.
Mametchi is a very healthy adult Tamagotchi who is likely to have a long life. He is extremely clever with an IQ of around 250. He is a serious prodigy type, and one of the smartest Tamagotchis.
The Nintendo Power guide to the Tamagotchi Gameboy game stated: "Count yourself as a good parent if you end up with Mametchi. It's the Tamagotchi equivalent of a mathematical genius, and very polite to boot."
The Tamagotchi Record Book also describes Mametchi as being extremely serious, well-mannered and very clever; but adds that he is inflexible on some issues.
In the Anime
Mametchi is the main protagonist of the Tamagotchi anime series and one of the only three characters to appear in every episode in all the series. He is kind hearted and very intelligent, making him very popular with the girls. He loves create inventions that help others. He can build inventions very quickly but sometimes they don't go as planned and will explode instead. He is one of the smartest students in Tamagotchi School, enjoys playing soccer, and has a friendly rivalry with Kuromametchi.
Mametchi's family includes his father (PapaMametchi), his mother (Mamametchi), and little sister (ChaMametchi). Mametchi loves his little sister, and is protective of her and tries not to upset her. ChaMametchi looks up to her older brother, and tends to follow him around wherever he goes. Mametchi also has two Tama Pets; these are Bagubagutchi and Hapihapitchi (who he invented). While Bagubagutchi enjoys being at home, Hapihapitchi prefers spending time exploring with Chamametchi.
Mametchi loves the Gotchiman show and he prefers it over any other (although he does enjoy watching Lovelin’s shows). He records every episode when it airs and will watch it in his free time and seems to be the only character to still like it (since the show's ratings have gone down) because he sees Gotchiman as a hero. Mametchi collects Gotchiman merchandise and even has a pajama set and figurines; he has also created Gotchiman-inspired inventions based on the gadgets used on the show.
While he seems to be a mechanical genius and does well in school, Mametchi seems to lack artistic creativity. Singing, and movie making are some of the things he likes to do that he isn't good at (although he doesn't think so personally). His worst talent is singing; Mametchi is completely tone-deaf, and only a few friends can handle his singing.
Tamagotchi: The Movie
In Tamagotchi: The Movie, Mametchi builds a "Forwarding Machine" in hopes of using it to capture a star for his personal use. However, Kuchipatchi's interference causes the machine to be knocked off of its coordinates, and instead transports a young human girl, Tanpopo, to the Tamagotchi Planet. Tanpopo is allowed to stay with Mametchi in his house, while PapaMametchi develops a rocket to bring Tanpopo home. Later on, Mametchi reveals to Tanpopo that he's frightened of the dark, and with his little sister about to hatch, he wanted to have his own personal sun to follow him around. Later on, when the egg gets lose and rolls away from home, Mametchi risks his life to save it. That night, his little sister hatches.
As his little sister grows into ChaMametchi, Mametchi finally develops Mamesunnytchi, a small personal sun to provide Mametchi light wherever he goes. But one day, the Tamagotchi Planet's real sun, Sunnytchi, disappears, causing the Planet to catch a cold. Mametchi, blaming himself, steals Tanpopo's rocket to leave the Planet and search for Sunnytchi. Memetchi, Kuchipatchi, ChaMametchi, and Tanpopo all come on board with him. They are able to cure the Planet's sickness by firing a capsule from the rocket's tip, but Mametchi and ChaMametchi have their first argument.
Later on, they attempt to escape Blackholetchi's pull while trying to wake it up through the rocket's speaker. However, a meteor gets jammed in the speaker, forcing Mametchi and Tanpopo to leave the rocket and pry it loose. They manage to remove the rock, but are both sucked into Blackholetchi in the process. When a yell from the Tamagotchi Planet finally wakes Blackholetchi, he safely frees Mametchi and Tanpopo from within him, and sets the rocket back home.
After Tanpopo leaves back to Earth, Mametchi sends her a message through her Tamagotchi toy.
Tamagotchi Happiest Story in the Universe
In Tamagotchi: Happiest Story in the Universe, Mametchi's dream gets a rude comment by a new student Kikitchi from Chamametchi. Mametchi then explains to Kikitchi that the flying library is a flying ship that contains magical books that children are magically transported into and made the main character when they read them. Suddenly, a ship appears and the books start popping out various objects. Mametchi and the others started jumping in them. After finishing that up, Mametchi and his friend decided to find out what's happening.
As Kuchipatchi, Mametchi, Memetchi, and Chamametchi tell about what happened while they were in their stories, Makiko and Memetchi get into an argument over the prince that had been in their story. Soon, Mametchi has an idea for an invention, and he rushes home. After several failed attempts, he finally gets his experiment right, and he invites his friends over to watch him complete it. But after several events, the experiment goes wrong, and a small creature emerges. Mametchi explains that he did not expect his experiment to become and actual living thing, but that the creature can absorb the feelings of others and use it to make other people happy. Mametchi decides to call his new creature "Hapihapitchi".
While the birth of Hapihapitchi is being celebrated, Kikitchi eats a large meal on his own. He is full after one bite, and turns on his TV. He sees an advertisement for Celebria, a newly completed super-shopping mall. Kikitchi's parents then appear on TV, explaining that they built Celebria as a place where all Tamagotchis could go to have fun. Kikitchi sadly turns off the TV, and watches fireworks from outside his window.
Hapihapitchi begins to use her power to make people happy. She attempts to use her power on Kikitchi, but Kikitchi runs away, yelling that forcing people to be happy is "nonsense". Over time, Mametchi begins to notice that Hapihapitchi is actually making people unhappy; they now depend on Hapihapitchi to make them happy when they are upset. Mametchi then tells Hapihapitchi not to use her powers on anyone until he can figure out what to do.
At school, the flying library comes again. Kikitchi, who is hiding in a corner, hears the small voice calling out for help again, and begins to search for the source. Hapihapitchi also senses the unhappiness that is connected with the voice, and she begins to search for the source, too. As Kikitchi, Mametchi, Memetchi, Kuchipatchi, Chamametchi, and Hapihapitchi run into each other, a book opens up at their feet, entitled "The World's Happiest Story". They enter the book, where they notice that, unlike the other magical books in the library, they don't become the main character. The story tells of a man named Happy who lived with his dog named Lucky. Because his name is "Happy", he is determined to become the happiest man in the world, so he sets off on a journey, leaving behind his home and his dog. He becomes rich and a hero, but he still isn't the happiest man in the world. The characters find Happy, but he states that he doesn't want their help. As the Tamagotchis follow Happy through the various pages of the story, they notice that the story loops; the end simply brings them back to the beginning. Kikitchi notices that Happy acts similar to how he acted, and he begins to feel bad. However, before the Tamagotchis can help Happy, the school bell rings, and they have to leave the library. Unknown to anyone else, Kikitchi leaves the Library, the book with him.
Back at his house, Kikitchi remembers an event that occurred when he was younger. A group of younger Tamagotchis were talking about a festival that was to occur the next day, but Kikitchi hears a tree say that it will rain tomorrow. When he tries to tell the others, the children call him a liar and a horrible person. Unable to wait, Kikitchi enters the book he has taken home. As he does, however, a tornado of paper engulfs Celebria, and causes the Tamagotchi caught in the tornado to become two-dimensional. Mametchi's family sees the news report on TV, and Chamametchi and Mametchi instantly think of Kikitchi. The family then heads to Mame Laboratories to discuss the problem with other scientists.
At the laboratory, one of the scientists explains that the last page in Happy's story had been torn out, so that he is unable to complete his story. Over time, the book had become unstable, and Kikitchi entering the story caused it to become unstable enough to affect the real world. The only way to save the world was to have Otogitchi, the captain of the flying library, write a new ending with a magic crayon. Meanwhile, Papamametchi reluctantly allows Mametchi and his friends to enter the story to save Kikitchi.
Mametchi and his friends enter the book on the flying library ship. In the book, Kikitchi is talking with Happy, who is beginning to believe he will never be happy. The flying ship finally finds them, where Otogitchi explains to Happy that they have to write a new ending to the story. They attempt to write several different endings, but they all disappear, meaning that they aren't correct. When he begins to become discouraged, the other Tamagotchi begin to give him ideas of what makes them happy. Kikitchi's idea, which is when someone says "hello" to him during class, has a large impact on Happy, and he begins to get an idea. Unfortunately, the world inside the story begins to fall apart, and the magic crayon is accidentally dropped. Since Happy states that he can't leave the book with the other Tamagotchi, Hapihapitchi asks Mametchi if she can try to make Happy happy. Happy is surrounded with memories, and he finally decides how he wants his story to end. Kikitchi risked his life to get the magic crayon back, and he asks Happy what he wants the ending to be. Happy says that he wants to go back to his home as it was before he left. Otogitchi's sister draws a door, and Happy opens it; suddenly, the book stops disintegrating, and returns to normal. Kikitchi realizes that Lucky was the one calling out to him, and is happy that Happy is now happy.
Suddenly, Hapihapitchi collapses in a field. Mametchi explains that without any happiness, Hapihapitchi would die. Hapihapitchi gets up and weakly sprinkles her last happiness over Kikitchi, stating that she promised she would make him happy. Kikitchi begins to cry, and Mametchi tells everyone that Hapihapitchi needs happiness to absorb, but no one can be happy while Hapihapitchi is about to die. Happy approaches Hapihapitchi, picks her up, and tells her that he is the happiest man in the world. Suddenly, Hapihapitchi's health is restored, and she springs back to life and Kikitchi stops crying but is still sad. The Tamagotchi wave goodbye to Happy and Lucky, and leave the book on the flying ship.
Back in the real world, the citizens of Tamatown celebrate the return of the heroes. Kikitchi's parents comfort him, by promising to make more time for him from now on. Happily, Kikitchi introduces his parents to his new friends.
The end credits show Tamatown being cleaned up after the paper tornado, and the Tamagotchi children continuing to enjoy the magical story books. A picture inside the wall of Mametchi's home also shows a brief picture of Tanpopo, the main heroine from the first Tamagotchi film.
In Tamagotchi, Matetchi and his friend go through events throughout the series, like making new friends, helping out of issuations, and saving the planet from an egg curse. After a tearful farewell to Kizunatchi, who left to return to her orginal to protect the hearts, and knows they'll see each other again one day, Miss Perfect tells them and hold class that since Mametchi, Memetchi, and Kuchipatchi won the soccer tournment, they will be moving to Dream Town to go to a new school, much to everyone's astonishment.
