Nazotchi (なぞっち Nazotchi) is a "replacement" Tamagotchi character that appears on all editions of Tamagotchi virtual pets since 2004.

Function

Nazotchi serves as a placeholder character between different Tamagotchi releases; if the character on one does not exist on another or the difference in the programming between the two of them prevents a proper character from appearing. Nazotchi cannot be directly raised by the user, though it can be obtained indirectly on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 and Tamagotchi Music Star as a secondary character.

Appearance

Nazotchi appears as a big black ball wearing a wide, red hat, and two eyes visible from under the brim. It has two arms and legs, and is often depicted carrying a bindle. Nazotchi has neither a specific gender nor an Ura counterpart.

Personality

Since Nazotchi is an "unknown" character, it can have any forms of personality and age, but is is usually described as a quiet and elusive Tamagotchi. One of the many Nazotchis is the postman of Tamagotchi Town, delivering mail, paychecks, newspapers, presents, and fortunes to Tamagotchis daily.

In Tamagotchi Corner Shop 3, it is stated that Nazotchi is good with riddles.

Name Origin

Nazotchi's name is derived from  Nazo, meaning "puzzle", "riddle", "mystery", or "enigma".

On Specific Releases

Entama / UraTama Releases

On the Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus and Ura Jinsei Enjoy Tamagotchi Plus, one Nazotchi will appear a few times a day to deliver newspaper and mail. On occasion, it will also deliver important mail, such as enrollment letters for school and paychecks.

Version 4 / V4.5 Releases

On the Tamagotchi Connection Version 4 and Tamagotchi Connection Version 4.5, one Nazotchi will appear many times a day to deliver mail and fortunes. On occasion, it will also deliver important mail, such as enrollment letters for school and paychecks.

Family Releases

Nazotchi appears when connecting a Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 (English or Japanese edition) to a later release, such as the Royal Dream Family Tamagotchi Plus or Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 Celebrity. If the two breed, Nazotchi will take the place of the character being "sent", and will not evolve into a Parent form.

Tamagotchi Music Star

One of the Nazotchi's primary function on the Music Star is its original interpretation of being a postman, appearing at the door several times a day to deliver presents from the Gotchi King (or a parent from the previous generation, from the second generation onward) and letters from fans, which may either be a heart, star, or poop. It also appears as the store's shopkeeper.

As the Tamagotchi Music Star is compatable with the Family pets, Nazotchi appears as a character placeholder. The two can breed by sending one Family character over to the Music Star; the character will be rendered as Nazotchi.

Tamagotchi Tama-Go

Nazotchi appears on the Tama-Go as the shopkeeper.

In Video Games

Tamagotchi: Party On!

If a player lands on Nazotchi's space, one Nazotchi will appear and redirect that player to another town.

Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop

Nazotchi appears in all three Tamagotchi Corner Shop game series for the DS as a customer who visits the player's shops.

Trivia

  • On the Online Tamatown, guests wear very similar hats to Nazotchi.
  • While Nazotchi only had three frames of animation on the Tamagotchi Plus, it was given additional frames on the Tamagotchi Connection. From the Version 5 onward, Nazotchi has a full set of animations, due to being obtainable as a secondary character.
  • Nazotchi has a full animation set on the Tamagotchi Friends, despite the release not being compatible with previous Tamagotchi toys.
  • Nazotchi mentions in Corner Shop 3 that he has to talk, or else he'll forget how to.
