Kusatchi (くさっち) is a character that debuted on the Tamagotchi Generation 2. She is an adult-stage Tamagotchi, except on the 15th Anniversary iD L.

Appearance

Kusatchi shares her facial appearance with Hashitamatchi, having a blue head with a yellow beak. She has a stem with two green leaves growing out the sides, and she appears to be sprouting from a brown flower pot. Some official artworks depict her wilting when she is sick or unhappy, hiding in her leaves when she is sleeping, and growing petals when she is happy.

On the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, Kusatchi can also be pink, or brown with a pink beak and yellow leaves.

Personality

Because Kusatchi has plant-like traits, she can make her own chlorophyll to nourish herself when nobody else is around to feed her. However, this means she becomes unwell when the sun isn't out. Kusatchi hangs out with the other unhealthy Tamagotchis, listens to heavy metal music, and dances along to it all night. Despite her love for music, she is tone-deaf and cannot play any instruments either.

She is also said to be very vain.

The McDonald’s Tamagotchi Toyz Happy Meal bag describes Kusatchi as “Likes heavy metal music and dancing all night long!”

Official profiles
"Tamagotchis have finally started to evolve. This one decided to use photosynthesis to nourish itself because it couldn't eat very much, but sometimes it doesn't work very well. It doesn't like being touched, and feels unwell on cloudy days. Strangely, it is friends with bees. It seems to have many bows for going out, so it may be interested in fashion. It also loves music and rock (especially metal), but it's not good at any musical instruments. This is a secret, but apparently it has been suffering from athlete's foot lately." - Polygon de Hakken!! Tamagotchi (JP, 1997)
"This strange plant-like creature needs lots of sun (for photosynthesis) but just a little food. It likes to stay up all night and sleep during the day." - Nintendo Power guide to Tamagotchi Game Boy (USA, 1997)

On Virtual Pets

Tamagotchi Generation 2

Kusatchi can be achieved through neglecting Tongaritchi or taking average care of Hashitamatchi. Kusatchi sleeps at 10 PM and wakes up at 9 AM.

Tamagotchi Connection Version 2

Kusatchi is a gender-neutral average-health adult that appears in odd-numbered generations. It sleeps from 10 PM to 8 AM and its base weight is 30 LB. Its favourite food is melon and its least favourite food is meat.

Tamagotchi iD L 15th Anniversary Version

Kusatchi appears as a female toddler that can be obtained randomly from Marutchi or Memeputchi. She can evolve into Morutchi or Mikazukitchi. Due to appearing in an earlier growth stage, Kusatchi sleeps three hours earlier than in her first two appearances. She sleeps from 7 PM to 7 AM.

In Tamagotchi Media

Tamagotchi Video Adventures

Kusatchi is part of the group of Tamagotchis sent to find an Earth artifact for the Tamagotchi Museum and is referred to as a male. He is partnered with Mametchi, and they argue over whether to bring back a cat (because it looks like Mametchi) or a potted flower (because it looks like Kusatchi). The cat ends up scaring them, so they bring back the flower instead.

Name Origin

Kusatchi's name comes from kusa, the Japanese word for "grass" or "weed". Kusa is also found in other terms that refer to other plants in general. For example, kusabana means "flowering plant".

Trivia

  • On the online Tamatown for V3 and V4, there is a CD in The Tama Beat store in the Mall that has a Kusatchi on it.
  • A misplacement on Bandai's original growth chart suggested that Kusatchi was the worst possible adult on the P2, and it was swapped with Takotchi. In actual fact, Kusatchi is the second unhealthiest adult and Takotchi is the unhealthiest. Kusatchi shares its animation patterns with Nyorotchi and as this video shows, taking care of Hashitamatchi the same way as a Kuchitamatchi would be to achieve Nyorotchi will result in an evolution to Kusatchi.
