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 with a large mouth, stubby arms and legs, and dark blue hair. In the US artwork, his hair was black and more angular. In the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, he can also be pink with red hair, or yellow with brown hair.
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.
From Found in the manga! Tamagotch, Ginjirotchi is seen as a cry baby because he worries too much.
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."
