KuroMametchi (くろまめっち Kuromametchi) is a male adult Tamagotchi character that debuted on the Tamagotchi School in Japan and the Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 internationally. In almost all releases he appears in, he is obtained with perfect or near perfect care, usually on par or slightly lower than Mametchi.


KuroMametchi has a slightly similar appearance to that of Mametchi. However, his skin is grey, and his ears are pointy and black instead of dark blue. Also, the brows of his eyes are pointed downwards, giving him a harsher expression. He has rosy cheeks. His body is black and he wears pink scarf around his neck. He has a pink star tattoo on his left ear and three silver earrings on his right ear. He is usually seen smirking, although sometimes he has a more serious expression.


Bandai's official description of KuroMametchi describes him as a "lone wolf" character. He's highly intelligent and not a bad person, although he can be rather unsociable. KuroMametchi always has a cool and rational outlook, and is popular in his class. He was once believed by the class as Mametchi's rival but he thinks of him as a friend. Surprisingly, he isn't good at dancing. He is skilled at sports, especially soccer and skateboarding. He also loves music, and owns an electric guitar.

KuroMametchi also seems to have a competitive side. When the school had a team contest on the short Tamagotchi anime, Let's Go! Tamagotchi, Mametchi raced against KuroMametchi. Makiko is a fan of him because of his "coolness" since he is a lone wolf and hard-to-get. Although Ringotchi feels the same way she's afraid of her Mametchi Fanclub, which Makiko is in. KuroMametchi has a heroic side to him as seen in the anime. In the eighth "Let's Go Tamagotchi!" episode, he helps (and hurts) Bikertchi by mailing Bikertchi's love letter to Ciaotchi.

KuroMametchi also has a bit of a soft side. In Tamagotchi Corner Shop 3, Makiko says that he is kind to the elderly. This is proven in episode 12 of Let's Go! Tamagotchi where he has a dream where he carries Otokitchi across the road. In Tamagotchi: The Movie, it is seen that Kuromametchi cares about Mametchi such as when he came up with the plan to save Mametchi and Tanpopo falling from the building. Also in the movie, Kuromametchi is the first to shout for Blackholetchi to wake up when Mametchi and Tanpopo are going to be sucked inside.

In the Anime

KuroMametchi lives in what looks to be a garage. He is one of the many Tamagotchis to have had a crush on Lovelitchi. He is one of the only Tamagotchis whose initial affections for her remained throughout the series. He knows a lot about her, and he has posters of her all over his walls. He will do is best to help Lovelitchi, such as when he wanted to be her skating partner and when he helped to keep her secret about being Lovelin safe from their classmates. Furthermore, KuroMametchi guessed that Lovelitchi was Lovelin even before she told it to everyone at Mametchi's birthday. In episode 83 of the series, KuroMametchi had a moment of infatuation while secretly taking a photo of Lovelin for a photography contest.

He is the leader of Lovelin's cheering squad, joined by Togetchi and Hinotamatchi. He gets along well with Shoototchi and Sunopotchi because of their shared love for sports.

In episode 98, Tomomi becomes popular at Tamagotchi School due to her studying and sports skills, causing Kuromametchi to see her as a rival. By the end of the episode, they form a special bond and the Kuromame Tama Heart appears.

In GO-GO Tamagotchi!, Neenetchi has a crush on KuroMametchi, and Orenetchi idolizes him. In contrast to Mametchi and Himespetchi, he appears to be aware of Neenetchi's affections, but chooses to ignore them. However, in episode 30, he willingly dances with her during the Halloween party.

In the anime, he is voiced by Nanae Katou.
