Ikaritchi (いかりっち) is a male Tamagotchi character who debuted in episode one of Tamagotchi! Yume Kira Dream.
Ikaritchi is old and one day dreams of becoming a fisherman, and spends most of his time working on his boat in his garage. Because he cares so much about his work, he doesn't like children and doesn't get along very well with Mametchi. He doesn't talk much, but he gets angry very easily, especially when someone interferes with his work. Sometimes when another Tamagotchi tries to talk to him, he just ignores them. At the end of Tamagotchi! Yume Kira Dream, he became more happy and friendly.
In the Anime
Tamagotchi! Yume Kira Dream
When Mametchi leaves his family to live in Dream Town, Ikaritchi is selected by Principal Omen to act as Mametchi's homestay parent. However, Ikaritchi doesn't pay much attention to Mametchi and hardly responds to him. Mametchi's attempts to make him more involved are fruitless, and it comes to a head when not only does Ikaritchi fail to show up for the tea robot competition, but also chastises Mametchi for losing. Mametchi runs away from home in frustration, but Yumemitchi and Kiraritchi convince him to return home.
Shortly after, Pianitchi returns to Dream Town, revealing herself to have known Ikaritchi when she was young and that Ikaritchi was not always as bitter and reserved. Ikaritchi had a previous apprentice, Aguritchi, who left Ikaritchi on bad terms, making Ikaritchi refuse to open up and risk getting hurt again. Mametchi, Pianitchi and their friends track down Aguritchi and help him make amends with Ikaritchi, who finally starts to become happier, and treats Mametchi. With his boat complete, Ikaritchi set out to sail across the Tamagotchi Planet and spread Aguritchi's newly invented "anchor apples" around the world. Before departing, Ikaritchi passes on his homestay parent duties to Cafe Mama, and Mametchi moves in to the Music Cafe.
Even though his house was deserted, the garage was still available for the Kirakira Girls to practice their music.
Ikaritchi makes a cameo appearance in episode 50. He is seen sailing on his boat holding an anchor apple, although his location is unknown.
Ikari is Japanese for "anchor". This may be a reference to the anchor tattoo on his arm, and his dream of becoming a fisherman on a boat. Ikari can also mean "anger", which may refer to his bad temper.
