Mori de Hakken! Tamagotch
Helmetchi is one of two secret characters, the other being the twin ants, FutagoAritchi. To obtain him, the user must start with a white egg. When Babymotchi becomes Imotchi, the user needs to feed it only candy, and ensure its weight is maintained at 40mg. When Imotchi becomes Mayutchi, the user needs to ensure that the temperature stays middling, never too hot or cold. 24 hours later, it will evolve back into Imotchi. During this time, the user needs to decrease and maintain its weight at 30mg. In 48 hours, it will evolve into another Mayutchi, where the same regulations apply. After a further 24 hours, the second Mayutchi will evolve into Helmetchi. Helmetchi wakes at 12 PM, sleeps at 11 PM, has a base weight of 80mg, and his special food is a mushroom.
Helmetchi's name comes from the word "helmet", which refers to the helmet that he wears.
- Helmetchi's cigarette is removed in his Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. Tap and Hatch artwork.
- When Game de Hakken!! Tamagotchi 2's Mushitchi were adapted as the characters for the Morino Tamagotchi, Helmetchi replaced Tengutchi as the secret character. He is the only character on the Morino to not have debuted on that game.
- Helmetchi's artwork and sprite are missing from all known Tamagotchi Garden images, suggesting that he may not have been an obtainable character.
- Helmetchi is one of four Tamagotchi characters shown smoking, the other three being Kaizokutchi, Tabakotchi, and Memepapatchi.
- This is the only time the player will obtain two Mayutchis.
