Hatakemotchi's name comes from the Japanese word hatake (畑), meaning an agricultural field, and mo (モー), an onomatopoeia for the sound a cow makes.
Hatakemotchi resembles a cow. He has an egg-shaped body that is white with dark spots, similar to a cow. He has oval-shaped eyes, a pink beak, and stubby arms and legs. He wears dim blue overalls, grayish-blue boots, and a straw hat. He carries a basket with him on his back, presumably for storing produce. On the P's, he holds an axe instead.
Hatakemotchi is a farmer who grows fruits and vegetables at Tama Farm.
