Memetchi (めめっち Memetchi) is a female adult Tamagotchi character. She made her debut on the Tamagotchi Connection. Since then, Memetchi became a mascot character along with Mametchi and Kuchipatchi and has appeared on many Tamagotchi virtual pets. Her care status is often different per release, such as good care in one and severe neglect in another, but her care is average in most releases.
Memetchi's trademark qualities are her large sparkly eyes and springy curl, which always swirls to the right. Her body is orange and she has a large, round head. Her arms and legs are very thin like sticks, and they appear to be dark brown in the anime.
Memetchi is a very stylish, feminine, child-like character and somewhat defensive of her appearance. If criticized, she will most likely stare and often say, "You're being mean to me!" This shows that she can be a crybaby at times due to her sensitivity.
In Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 2, Memetchi says that orange is her favorite color. She also loves pink.
According to Imotchi in Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 3, Memetchi wants to become a singer. This is also portrayed in episode 12 of Let's Go! Tamagotchi, but in the Tamagotchi! anime, Memetchi wants to be a hairdresser instead.
She loves all things swirly, which is why many things she owns have swirls on them. Her favorite foods are cupcakes and oranges, and she dislikes fish.

In the Anime
Memetchi's personality remains the same as it is in the games. She is a feminine young girl who is very sensitive about her appearance. Her curl signifies her own adorable appeal of herself. Whenever she is having a bad hair day, she would become very depressed. But if anybody insulted her look, she would become very furious. She also loves beautiful dresses and accessories just like Makiko and Lovelitchi. However, unlike Makiko, she understands that there are more important things than fashion, such as friendship.
Memetchi, Mametchi, and Kuchipatchi have been friends since they were little. They share a much closer bond with each other than their other friends. She has stayed beside the two and supported them all the way. But whenever she is feeling down, Mametchi and Kuchipatchi would cheer her up.
Memetchi has been rivals with Makiko since they were very young. They get into constant arguments about who has the best curls in their hair and glare at each other angrily. Mametchi often steps in to put a stop to their arguments. Memetchi's little sister Imotchi is not as stylish as her, but they also fight because Imotchi likes to be right all the time, often annoying Memetchi with her incompetence.
Memetchi has a special talent, that is the ability to sense things with her curl. By twirling it, she could scan her surroundings and assume the correct decision with positive thinking. But sometimes her sensing talent can be faulty and lead her to a wrong situation, often blaming others if this occurs. This usually happens when her hair curl is damaged, or wet from the rain. Her hair is delicate and it once broke, as seen in GO-GO Tamagotchi!. When she is completely without her curl, she loses all sense of direction and runs right into things.
When she blinks, there is a sound slightly like tambourines.
