This article is about the vintage character. For information on the modern character, see Masktchi.

Maskutchi (ますくっち Masukutchi), originally called Masktchi or Mask-tchi is an adult Tamagotchi character that debuted on the original Tamagotchi.

Name Origin

His name comes from the English word mask. In the original US promotional material, his name was hyphenated ("Mask-tchi").

Appearance

Maskutchi has a round, white, bean-shaped body with a pair of stubby violet ears on top, has two stick legs, and wears a violet mask. In its original artwork, these violet parts were colored indigo instead. In its US artwork, it has a blue body, black ears and wears a black mask. On the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, it has two other variations: one with pink ears and a pink mask, and red with green ears and mask, like a strawberry. Strangely, the pink variant looks more like his new design- years later.

Personality

Maskutchi is an intelligent Tamagotchi and likes to learn. They are generally quiet and have a habit of spying on others by staring at them.

Official profiles
"Maskutchi likes to learn, but it can be cranky and a little mean at times. It has the unnerving habit of staring at you from dark corners." - Nintendo Power guide to Tamagotchi Game Boy (USA, 1997)
"Silent, but the most intelligent of all adults." - Tamagotchi Record Book (Aus)
“Masktchi's on the sneaky side, behind his mask is where he hides” - What's a Tamagotchi Song, Tamagotchi Video Adventures (1998)
"Uh oh. You may have given your pet too many snacks or spoiled it if Masktchi appears. This big-eared, funny-walking one is rare and on the quiet side. It is VERY curious and is constantly spying on everything and everyone." - Tamagotchi Record Book (US)

On Virtual Pets

Tamagotchi (Generation 1)

Maskutchi is an average care adult obtained from Tamatchi. Whether the Tamatchi begins with 50% or 0% Discipline, it must not receive any more than 50% Discipline. Hungry and Happy hearts must be filled only once they're halfway empty. If it had any Discipline before evolution, it will have 0% Discipline upon evolving. Maskutchi wakes at 11 AM, sleeps at 11 PM, and has a base weight of 30. It has a maximum lifespan of 15-16 days on the original release and 19-20 days on the rerelease.

Maskutchi can evolve further into the secret character: Oyajitchi on the Japanese version, and Bill on the international version. This can only be done if it evolved from a Tamatchi that began with 0% Discipline, meaning it must have had 50% or less as Marutchi. After evolving into Maskutchi, it must be given good to perfect care, with no care mistakes. Once the proper conditions are met, it will evolve between the ages of 9 and 10.

Maskutchi's game quirk is hesitating just before turning left or right, implying it's trying to cheat. However, it has less patterns memorized, and is easier to win games than some other adults.

In Tamagotchi Media

Anime TV de Hakken!! Tamagotchi

Maskutchi appears in episode 2 of Anime TV de Hakken!! Tamagotchi. He constantly spies on Kuchipatchi, Ginjirotchi and Tarakotchi as they try to read their book, forcing them to run away. Eventually, Ginjirotchi becomes frustrated and gives him the book, but Maskutchi refuses and flees. Later, when the three Tamagotchis are busy having lunch, Maskutchi takes the book and reads it alone.

Tamagotchi Video Adventures

Maskutchi stars as the main protagonist and, like in Tamagotchi CD-ROM, he is known as "Masktchi". He is partnered with Hashizoutchi for an expedition to Earth, but Hashizoutchi finds corn and immediately returns to the ship, leaving Maskutchi alone to find an artifact from Earth for the museum. He eventually finds a gumball machine and steals it, leaving a golden egg in its place. However, he ends up dropping and breaking it. A young human girl cheers him up by offering him a Popsicle. Maskutchi is delighted, but has nothing to offer her in return, but she doesn't mind.

By the time Maskutchi returns to the ship, the Popsicle had completely melted, leaving only the stick. The others tease him about it, but when he shares his story, Cosmotchi is delighted, as the stick now had a deeper meaning of human selflessness and kindness. Maskutchi is given a medal, and the stick is placed inside the museum.
