The Gotchi King (ごっち大王 Gotchi Daiou, meaning "Gotchi the Great") is an egg-like Tamagotchi that rules Tamagotchi Planet. He lives in his castle, and he is married to the Gotchi Queen and is the father of Princess Tamako and Princess Tamakoko.


The Gotchi King resembles a large, golden egg wearing a crown and a red cape. When he originally debuted, his cape was green. He has no visible face, but is capable of speech. However, in the Corner Shop games, he does not speak, instead using emoticons to express his emotions.


Based on the paintings in Gotchi King's castle along time ago, a Gotchi King fell down from the sky. The Tamagotchi back then believed that he was mighty, wise and destined to rule the planet. Then the years had passed and Gotchi King still rules Tamagotchi Planet, passing his throne to the next generation of the Gotchi King.

During the half-ending in Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 3, Gypsytchi shows some of the Mayor's past, when he battled the Gotchi King in a game of Rock Paper Scissors for the throne. The Gotchi King won and retained the crown.

In Tamagotchi Media

Tamagotchi Video Adventures

A very early depiction appears of the King in the 1997 direct-to-video animation Tamagotchi Video Adventures. He is strikingly similar to his current form, except his cape is green and has visible eyes. He keeps in touch with Cosmotchi through a computer on how the visit to Earth is going. When Maskutchi's stick is put into the museum, the Gotchi King smiles and bows to him.

In the Anime

Gotchi King is a egg like Tamagotchi that rules Tamagotchi Planet. He loves cute things like Telelin, Pashalin and even Lovelitchi and Melodytchi. He loves telling jokes, but they're not really funny; somehow the only Tamagotchis who like his jokes are Melodytchi, Kizunatchi, and Telelin. Everyone thinks that he's wise, but when he speaks he always tell his jokes, using puns such as egg in excellent, making "eggcellent". In Let's Go! Tamagotchi, he seems to be so delicate that if he laughs hard he will crack. He is voiced by Dan Green in the English version of the mini-series. In episode 136 of Tamagotchi!, Gotchi King is shown to become sick with a disease that can only be caught by him and is only curable with a crystal crown. Princess Tamako sets off with Mametchi and his friends to find it and save the Gotchi King.

In Video Games

Hoshi de Hakken! Tamagotchi

After Tamagotchi Video Adventures introduced the concept of a ruler of the Tamagotchi Planet, the PlayStation game introduced the Gotchi King. The only major difference between his vintage depiction and his modern one are that his cape is green instead of red, much like the Great Gotchi from the aforementioned video.
