Mame (まめ) means diligent, but is often also interpreted as soy bean (豆 mame) (for example, see his Chinese names below), which possibly reference to his color scheme.
Names in other languages
|Cantonese (Hong Kong)||豆豆|
Mametchi is light yellow and has a wide, round head with a narrow body and large, black eyes. He has two arms, two legs, and two large bumps resembling animal ears covered in black fur on top of his head. As of 2004, he has rosy pink cheeks as well as dark blue eyes and ears.
When Tamagotchi first launched in the US, Mametchi was classified as a female instead of a male and had a much leaner build, a smaller head and eyes, and a blue body. These changes were eventually abandoned and Mametchi's original Japanese appearance has since been maintained worldwide.
In Tamagotchi L.i.f.e., he can be yellow, pink or blue.
Mametchi is a very healthy adult Tamagotchi who is likely to have a long life. He is extremely clever with an IQ of around 250. He is a serious prodigy type, and one of the smartest Tamagotchis. He has poor drawing skills.
The Tamagotchi Record Book also describes Mametchi as being extremely serious, well-mannered and very clever; but adds that he is inflexible on some issues.
According to Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 3, Mametchi once stole some candy when he was younger, implying that he used to have a mischievous side.

In The Anime
This section contains major plot-progressing story elements!
Mametchi has appeared in every anime of Tamagotchi to date. In the Vintage era, Mametchi speaks in incomprehensible gibberish like the the other Tamagotchis. In the Modern era, Mametchi is voiced by Rie Kugimiya in Japanese, and has had two notable English voiceovers; Stephanie Sheh in Tamagotchi: The Movie and Let's Go! Tamagotchi and Erica Mendez in the Tamagotchi Friends webisodes.
Mametchi first appears two and a half minutes into this short film, where he cracks open an egg, revealing a cake that Tongaritchi and Hashitamatchi eat. He is later seen getting Tarakotchi to follow him as he and the other Tamagotchis flee the Tamagotchi Planet due to Oyajitchi getting it drunk.
Mametchi is a recurring character in the vintage anime. Of the 9 episodes that have sufficed on home video, Mametchi plays starring roles in 2 of them.
In the 3rd episode, Mametchi and Ginjirotchi are seen eating at a restaurant. They order 4 different meals, and while Ginjirotchi is enjoying his orders, Mametchi's orders keep getting eaten while he thanks Kuchipatchi for delivering them. The 3rd order reveals that Nyorotchi is the one eating Mametchi's food, and Mametchi tries to keep him away from his 4th order by running away from him, but Nyorotchi ends up snatching the food and ends up getting ill from eating too much. Mametchi and Ginjirotchi then contact the hospital, and after Nyorotchi gets cured by Tarakotchi and Maskutchi, everyone, including Mametchi, enjoys a meal together.
In the following episode, Mametchi takes the role of a traffic director. He tries helping Ginjirotchi back up, which leads to him bumping into Kuchipatchi, and later helps Tarakotchi and Zuccitchi go forward, causing the latter to bump into the former. Mametchi is later seen eating rice in the middle of the road, causing the Tamagotchis around him to be stuck in traffic. Mametchi gets back to his job, and becomes exhausted doing so. Later that night, Mametchi is seen sleeping on the road, causing the nighttime drivers to be stuck in traffic.
Mametchi plays non-starring roles in the 5th episode, where he is among Ginjirotchi's audience, the 8th episode, where he operates a subterrene that Tongaritchi thought was one of the flowers in his ruined garden about to bloom, and in the 9th episode, where he confirms Ginjirotchi's passing.
In Tamagotchi Video Adventures, Mametchi is revealed to have contributed to the Tamagotchi Museum's Galaxy Wing by bringing back a mechanical hand from a planet named Vulcan. Mametchi is later partnered with Kusatchi in finding an artifact from the Earth. Kusatchi finds a flower and insists on bringing it back, but Mametchi believes that a nearby cat would be better, until the cat shows its claws and meows in annoyance. The two later settle with the flower and leave behind a golden egg, which the cat then plays with.
It should be noted that because Tamagotchi Video Adventures was made in the United States during the vintage era, Mametchi is written as a blue-colored female instead of a yellow-colored male like he usually is.
In the Modern era directed by Jōji Shimura, Mametchi usually plays the role of the main protagonist. He is written as a well-mannered and intelligent boy who has a pastime for crafting inventions with helpful intentions, although these inventions have a good chance of going wrong and exploding instead. Mametchi resides in a standard house in Mame City with his parents Mamametchi and Papamametchi, little sister Chamametchi, and Tama-Pets Bagubagutchi and Hapihapitchi. He gets along very well with other Tamagotchis, but his friends, or Tama-Friends, are Lovelitchi, Memetchi and Kuchipatchi.
In the first movie, Mametchi invents a Transporter Machine, and invites Memetchi and Kuchipatchi to see it in action, but Kuchipatchi, mistaking a Hamburger-shaped Yo-Yo Catcher for a real Hamburger, goes after it and causes the machine goes off-course and transport a human girl named Tanpopo to Tamagotchi Planet, leading to a shocking introduction. It is later revealed to Tanpopo that Mametchi is soon going to be a big brother.
Mametchi, Memetchi, and Kuchipatchi show Tanpopo around Tamagotchi Town and Tamagotchi School, mentioning that the Gotchi King's birthday has caused the town to be busier than usual. Mametchi is later shown cowering in fear as a result of an explosion caused by Professor Flask. He explains to his friends and Tanpopo that he's terrified of the dark, which started in his youth when he fell into a pit that he couldn't get out of. Mametchi reveals that the initial intention of the Transporter Machine was to transport a sun to Tamagotchi Planet to accompany him in dark areas, and that he wants his younger sibling to look up to him and not see him as a coward.
Mametchi then practices math drills at his home while Tanpopo looks at pictures of him in his youth. The egg containing Mametchi's soon-to-be-born sibling hops out of its crib, onto Bagubagutchi's head, and later outside. Mametchi and Tanpopo chase after the rolling egg, which ends up at the top of the No. 1 Tower, suspended by balloons. Mametchi climbs the tower and retrieves the egg, but ends up falling from the tower. Tanpopo catches him, but she falls too. Memetchi tries to save them using the Hamburger-shaped Yo-Yo Catcher, but to no avail. Finally, Kuromametchi, Togetchi, Androtchi, and Gozarutchi stretch Kuchipatchi to form a trampoline, allowing them to land safely.
Mametchi's sibling finally hatches to reveal Mimifuwatchi, who jumps on his head, expressing her gratitude for her rescue. Mametchi, with help from Memetchi, Kuchipatchi, and Tanpopo, then take it upon themselves to invent a portable sun while Papamametchi and Mamametchi take care of Mimifuwatchi. Mimifuwatchi then evolves into Chamametchi the next day. Mametchi then creates Mamesunnytchi, who Mametchi calls "the star of his dreams".
The following day, it still appears to be night, and is later revealed that Sunnytchi, Tamagotchi Planet's real sun, has disappeared, which results in the Tamagotchi Planet getting a cold. Mametchi runs to the Mamemame Laboratory, where he hears Papamametchi read a letter written by Sunnytchi and sent by Principal Mimizu. The letter implies that Mametchi's creation of Mamesunnytchi caused him to leave, making Mametchi believe that he was responsible. Mametchi then runs off, tearfully blaming himself for the whole situation.
Mametchi then sneaks off and heads to the rocket that was intended to bring Tanpopo back to the Earth to search for Sunnytchi. Memetchi, Kuchipatchi, and Tanpopo find him in the rocket, with the latter holding the rocket manual. To Mametchi's shock, Chamametchi boards the rocket just as its about to blast off. Papamametchi then video-calls Mametchi to tell him that he's too young to run off on his own and try to rescue Sunnytchi, citing how strenuous and dangerous the task is. Mametchi, still believing he's responsible, tells Papamametchi that he intends to make right what he got wrong. Papamametchi, hearing Mametchi's request, reluctantly lets him continue on the mission and informs him about a cold-curing pill intended for the Tamagotchi Planet inside the rocket's tip. Mamehakasetchi then points out that there's only one pill and it must be aimed right at the Planet's mouth.
Mametchi prepares to fire the pill, but Chamametchi interferes, causing the pill to go off-course. Miraculously, the Planet's drool-turned-runny nose catches the pill, but the Planet then sneezes the fivesome into the middle of nowhere in space. After repeated demands from Chamametchi to speak to Mamametchi and Papamametchi, Mametchi snaps at her, angrily calling her out on her unnecessary interference and tendency to follow him everywhere and telling her to leave him alone and think about her actions, causing her to cry.
Mametchi and Chamametchi later make amends, but another problem arises; the rocket is approaching a black hole. Mametchi activates miniature reverse rockets to pull away from the black hole, but the video call reveals that the black hole is actually Blackholetchi sleeping. Mametchi and the others shout at Blackholetchi to wake him up, but a meteor gets stuck in the rocket's speaker, so Mametchi and Tanpopo leave the rocket to pry it. Kuromametchi then chimes in to the shouting, followed by the other Tamagotchis in the Laboratory and across the Planet. After successfully removing the meteor from the speaker and hearing everyone else trying to wake Blackholetchi up, Mametchi overcomes his fear of the dark and joins in, but he and Tanpopo are sucked in Blackholetchi. After one more shouting push, including from the Planet itself, Blackholetchi finally wakes up, frees Mametchi and Tanpopo, and sends the rocket off.
Papamametchi points out that the rocket is running out of fuel, and that Mametchi must return to Tamagotchi Planet immediately. The rocket then gets approached by a bright light, and after everyone believed that the rocket ran out of fuel and the fivesome failed to return, Mametchi announces that the bright light that was chasing them was Sunnytchi safely bringing them back. Sunnytchi then apologizes for the misunderstanding and revealed that he left to go on a hot spring tour.
Mametchi, the other Tamagotchis, and Tanpopo enjoy themselves at Gotchi King's birthday, but Mamametchi and Papamametchi inform Tanpopo that a comet taking her back to the Earth will be arriving soon. Mametchi and the others then bid a tearful farewell to Tanpopo, and in the post-credits scene, Mametchi sends her a message on her Tamagotchi device.
Mametchi has played several prominent roles in the Let's Go! Tamagotchi short series that followed the first movie:
- Perfect in the Morning! Tamagotchi School: Mametchi gets his classmates ready for Ms. Perfect's arrival.
- Mametchi's Surprising New Invention?!: Mametchi invents a pen that automates math drills and shows it to Memetchi and Kuchipatchi, failing to impress them. Chamametchi modifies the pen so that they give it a better reception.

- Ms. Perfect's Birthday!: Mametchi leads the other Tamagotchis to a Tama Depa, hoping to find a good birthday gift for Ms. Perfect.
In Tamagotchi: Happiest Story in the Universe, Mametchi's dream gets a rude comment by a new student Kikitchi from Chamametchi. Mametchi then explains to Kikitchi that the flying library is a flying ship that contains magical books that children are magically transported into and made the main character when they read them. Suddenly, a ship appears and the books start popping out various objects. Mametchi and the others started jumping in them. After finishing that up, Mametchi and his friend decided to find out what's happening.
As Kuchipatchi, Mametchi, Memetchi, and Chamametchi tell about what happened while they were in their stories, Makiko and Memetchi get into an argument over the prince that had been in their story. Soon, Mametchi has an idea for an invention, and he rushes home. After several failed attempts, he finally gets his experiment right, and he invites his friends over to watch him complete it. But after several events, the experiment goes wrong, and a small creature emerges. Mametchi explains that he did not expect his experiment to become and actual living thing, but that the creature can absorb the feelings of others and use it to make other people happy. Mametchi decides to call his new creature "Hapihapitchi".
While the birth of Hapihapitchi is being celebrated, Kikitchi eats a large meal on his own. He is full after one bite, and turns on his TV. He sees an advertisement for Celebria, a newly completed super-shopping mall. Kikitchi's parents then appear on TV, explaining that they built Celebria as a place where all Tamagotchis could go to have fun. Kikitchi sadly turns off the TV, and watches fireworks from outside his window.
Hapihapitchi begins to use her power to make people happy. She attempts to use her power on Kikitchi, but Kikitchi runs away, yelling that forcing people to be happy is "nonsense". Over time, Mametchi begins to notice that Hapihapitchi is actually making people unhappy; they now depend on Hapihapitchi to make them happy when they are upset. Mametchi then tells Hapihapitchi not to use her powers on anyone until he can figure out what to do.
At school, the flying library comes again. Kikitchi, who is hiding in a corner, hears the small voice calling out for help again, and begins to search for the source. Hapihapitchi also senses the unhappiness that is connected with the voice, and she begins to search for the source, too. As Kikitchi, Mametchi, Memetchi, Kuchipatchi, Chamametchi, and Hapihapitchi run into each other, a book opens up at their feet, entitled "The World's Happiest Story". They enter the book, where they notice that, unlike the other magical books in the library, they don't become the main character. The story tells of a man named Happy who lived with his dog named Lucky. Because his name is "Happy", he is determined to become the happiest man in the world, so he sets off on a journey, leaving behind his home and his dog. He becomes rich and a hero, but he still isn't the happiest man in the world. The characters find Happy, but he states that he doesn't want their help. As the Tamagotchis follow Happy through the various pages of the story, they notice that the story loops; the end simply brings them back to the beginning. Kikitchi notices that Happy acts similar to how he acted, and he begins to feel bad. However, before the Tamagotchis can help Happy, the school bell rings, and they have to leave the library. Unknown to anyone else, Kikitchi leaves the Library, the book with him.
Back at his house, Kikitchi remembers an event that occurred when he was younger. A group of younger Tamagotchis were talking about a festival that was to occur the next day, but Kikitchi hears a tree say that it will rain tomorrow. When he tries to tell the others, the children call him a liar and a horrible person. Unable to wait, Kikitchi enters the book he has taken home. As he does, however, a tornado of paper engulfs Celebria, and causes the Tamagotchi caught in the tornado to become two-dimensional. Mametchi's family sees the news report on TV, and Chamametchi and Mametchi instantly think of Kikitchi. The family then heads to Mame Laboratories to discuss the problem with other scientists.
At the laboratory, one of the scientists explains that the last page in Happy's story had been torn out, so that he is unable to complete his story. Over time, the book had become unstable, and Kikitchi entering the story caused it to become unstable enough to affect the real world. The only way to save the world was to have Otogitchi, the captain of the flying library, write a new ending with a magic crayon. Meanwhile, Papamametchi reluctantly allows Mametchi and his friends to enter the story to save Kikitchi.
Mametchi and his friends enter the book on the flying library ship. In the book, Kikitchi is talking with Happy, who is beginning to believe he will never be happy. The flying ship finally finds them, where Otogitchi explains to Happy that they have to write a new ending to the story. They attempt to write several different endings, but they all disappear, meaning that they aren't correct. When he begins to become discouraged, the other Tamagotchi begin to give him ideas of what makes them happy. Kikitchi's idea, which is when someone says "hello" to him during class, has a large impact on Happy, and he begins to get an idea. Unfortunately, the world inside the story begins to fall apart, and the magic crayon is accidentally dropped. Since Happy states that he can't leave the book with the other Tamagotchi, Hapihapitchi asks Mametchi if she can try to make Happy happy. Happy is surrounded with memories, and he finally decides how he wants his story to end. Kikitchi risked his life to get the magic crayon back, and he asks Happy what he wants the ending to be. Happy says that he wants to go back to his home as it was before he left. Otogitchi's sister draws a door, and Happy opens it; suddenly, the book stops disintegrating, and returns to normal. Kikitchi realizes that Lucky was the one calling out to him, and is happy that Happy is now happy.
Suddenly, Hapihapitchi collapses in a field. Mametchi explains that without any happiness, Hapihapitchi would die. Hapihapitchi gets up and weakly sprinkles her last happiness over Kikitchi, stating that she promised she would make him happy. Kikitchi begins to cry, and Mametchi tells everyone that Hapihapitchi needs happiness to absorb, but no one can be happy while Hapihapitchi is about to die. Happy approaches Hapihapitchi, picks her up, and tells her that he is the happiest man in the world. Suddenly, Hapihapitchi's health is restored, and she springs back to life and Kikitchi stops crying but is still sad. The Tamagotchi wave goodbye to Happy and Lucky, and leave the book on the flying ship.
Back in the real world, the citizens of Tamatown celebrate the return of the heroes. Kikitchi's parents comfort him, by promising to make more time for him from now on. Happily, Kikitchi introduces his parents to his new friends.
The end credits show Tamatown being cleaned up after the paper tornado, and the Tamagotchi children continuing to enjoy the magical story books. A picture inside the wall of Mametchi's home also shows a brief picture of Tanpopo, the main heroine from the first Tamagotchi film.
In Tamagotchi, Mametchi and his friend go through events throughout the series, like making new friends, helping out of issuations, and saving the planet from an egg curse. After a tearful farewell to Kizunatchi, who left to return to her orginal to protect the hearts, and knows they'll see each other again one day, Miss Perfect tells them and hold class that since Mametchi, Memetchi and Kuchipatchi won the soccer tournment, they will be moving to Dream Town to go to a new school, much to everyone's astonishment.
In Tamagotchi! Yume Kira Dream, Mametchi, Memetchi and Kuchipatchi are sent to live in Dream Town. Mametchi takes up studying robotics, and is sent to live with Ikaritchi, an old man who lives by the sea. Mametchi finds him fascinating and wise, but is frustrated with Ikaritchi's aloof nature. Later on, Mametchi loses a robot competition to Righttchi, and after an argument with Ikaritchi, he tries to run away and find a new home. However, Yumemitchi and Kiraritchi convince him to return to Ikaritchi.
He becomes good friends with Pianitchi when she arrives, and with her help, they uncover Ikaritchi's past and his falling out with his previous homestay student, Aguritchi. They convince him to make amends with Ikaritchi, who finally shows Mametchi his softer side. Ikaritchi departs to travel the planet selling Aguritchi's specially-made "anchor apples", and leaves Mametchi's care to Cafe Mama, as he needed a stayparent, althought he and the rest of the gang still go to Ikaritchi's house. During the trip to Melody Land, Papapianitchi helps Mametchi overcome his tone deafness. Later on, Mametchi and friends go through other interest events.

While attending Tamagotchi School, Lovelitchi became close friends with Mametchi and he taught her about the concept of Tama-Friends.

Later in the movie, he was the first to shout at Blackholetchi to wake him up and get Mametchi out of his mouth.
Himespetchi's defining character trait is her enormous crush on Mametchi. She often has daydreams of her being with a handsomer, deeper-voiced Mametchi known as Ikemen Mametchi, who she visualizes him as. This crush is one-sided, as Mametchi is oblivious to it, much to her dismay. However, Mametchi has shown a couple of signs of awareness, such as in GO-GO Tamagotchi's 30th episode, where he offered a dance to Himespetchi and only Himespetchi.
When Pianitchi first arrived in Dream Town, Mametchi delivered a briefcase that she left behind to her. The two quickly introduced themselves, and Pianitchi helped Mametchi figure out the truth behind Ikaritchi's aloofness. After Ikaritchi's departure, Mametchi and Pianitchi lived together at Music Cafe for the remainder of Yume Kira Dream as well as Miracle Friends.

- This may problably explain why Mametchi early sprite was inaccurate to his design.
