Kuchipatchi has a carefree and gentle nature. He is mild and lazy, but very romantic and a daydreamer. He sometimes cheats if playing games. He has a supersized passion for food, especially Tama-Donuts, and he also loves to take naps.
Kuchipatchi tends to say "dacchi" at the end of most of his sentences and uses the word in exclamation as well. In the English dub of the anime, he instead says "tchi" at the end of his sentences and "Ya-tchi!" when he's excited or agreeing with someone. In the Tamagotchi Friends webseries, he goes back to saying "dacchi".
In the anime series, Kuchipatchi has the ability to stretch his body. In dangerous situations, other Tamagotchis have stretched him out to use him as an impromptu trampoline or slide to catch falling Tamagotchis.
