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 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 safety 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.
Yume Kira Dream
In Tamagotchi! Yume Kira Dream, Mametchi, Memetchi and Kuchipatchi are sent to live in Dream Town. Mametchi takes up studying robotics, and is sent to live with Ikaritchi, an old man who lives by the sea. Mametchi finds him fascinating and wise, but is frustrated with Ikaritchi's aloof nature. Later on, Mametchi loses a robot competition to Righttchi, and after an argument with Ikaritchi, he tries to run away and find a new home. However, Yumemitchi and Kiraritchi convince him to return to Ikaritchi.
He becomes good friends with Pianitchi when she arrives, and with her help, they uncover Ikaritchi's past and his falling out with his previous homestay student, Aguritchi. They convince him to make amends with Ikaritchi, who finally shows Mametchi his softer side. Ikaritchi departs to travel the planet selling Aguritchi's specially-made "anchor apples", and leaves Mametchi's care to Cafe Mama. During the trip to Melody Land, Papapianitchi helps Mametchi overcome his tone deafness.
Mametchi's best friends in the anime are Memetchi and Kuchipatchi. Later on, Lovelitchi and Melodytchi also become his best friends. Memetchi and Kuchipatchi have been friends with him since they were very young and share a close bond with each other.
He is also known to be popular with the girls. In Let’s Go! Tamagotchi, he has a fan club he is unaware of, called the Secret Mametchi Fan Club.
Lovelitchi was introduced in the anime as a shy, kind, sweet girl who doesn't know how to make friends, as previously she was bullied. But thanks to Mametchi and his friends she became their friend and likes to spend time with them. Because of Mametchi's kind personality, she is another girl to develop a crush on him, but her crush has now worn off.
Melodytchi is a famous violinist and is the only one who likes Mametchi's terrible singing and paintings.
Moriritchi became his friend She is very positive, bright, active and a very out going girl who loves Tamamori and has an older sister called Anemoriritchi. They both own and run Tamamori together.
Himespetchi is a newer character that came from another planet and developed a big crush on Mametchi. Unlike Lovelitchi, she still dreams of being together with him someday. Mametchi doesn't know that Himespetchi is in love with him; she tried to confess her feelings in episode 142 of the anime series. Everybody heard her saying Mametchi I... but nobody heard her say the word suki (meaning love), so still Mametchi still doesn't know her feelings. Himespetchi often gets jealous when she sees other girls around Mametchi.
