Ginjirotchi (ぎんじろっち Ginjirotchi) is a Tamagotchi that debuted on the original Tamagotchi. He was present in the 15th Anniversary Character Poll as a male adult.
Ginjirotchi has a blue, bean-shaped body, a large mouth with an overbite, stubby arms and legs, and a dark blue marking on his head and back. In the US artwork, his marking was black and more angular. In the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, he can also be pink with a red marking, or yellow with an orange marking.
Ginjirotchi is independent and understanding. It is happy-go-lucky, cheerful, agreeable, and sensitive. He is also kind and caring, and may often be seen shedding a tear. The official Japanese site describes him as having a "very bubbly personality". Ginjirotchi has the ability to start hovering for a few seconds by spinning around, jumping, make its stomach face the ground and continue to spin.
The Nintendo Power guide to the Tamagotchi Gameboy game stated: "The quirky Ginjirotchi likes to go to bed early and get up late, but sleep must do it a lot of good, since it always has a pleasant disposition."
His profile in Found in the manga! Tamagotch states that he is severely emotional, cries easily, and that his favorite movie is the Japanese film "Otoko wa Tsurai yo".
