~ Jibanyan
Jibanyan is the mascot character of Yo-kai Watch, an RPG series of video games published by Level 5.


Jibanyan is a D-Rank Fire-Attribute Yo-kai of the Charming Tribe. Before becoming a Yo-kai, Jibanyan was an ordinary cat who lived with a girl named Amy. The pair were inseperable, until one day, when Jibanyan was run over by a truck and killed. Upon his death and transformation into a Yo-kai, Jibanyan would haunt the crosswalk he died at, possessing random pedestrians and trying to make them fight oncoming trucks to get revenge for his death. This is where Jibanyan met Nathan Adams, a young boy in possession of a watch that let him see and communicate with Yo-kai. Jibanyan would then become a good friend of Nate's, and one of his go-to Yo-kai to summon if he needed to fight.

Powers & AbilitiesEdit

  • Inspiriting: Jibanyan and all other Yo-kai have the ability to inspirit living beings and manipulate them. Jibanyan's inspirit manipulates random victims on the interstate sidewalk to suddenly run into the middle of the road. It also gives the effect of getting temporarily slower.
  • Fire Manipulation: Jibanyan can create fire to attack opponents in battle.
  • Paws of Fury: Jibanyan's Soultimate Move, where Jibanyan releases a flurry of punches. This is what he uses to train on cars, too.
  • Sharp Claws: A basic attack, where Jibanyan slashes a foe with his claws.



  • Can leave dents in metal with his punches.


  • Dodged a rocket punch thrown by his future self, Robonyan.


  • Frequently survives being hit by moving trucks.


Alternate Forms Edit


  • Laziness: Jibanyan is a loafer, usually preferring to lay around and eat Choco Bars rather than participate in combat. If he's not lazy, he's highly energetic and ready to fight.

Fun FactsEdit

  • Before he died, Jibanyan was a cat named Akamaru, who was owned by a girl named Amy.
