Not to be confused with Mametchi.
Following the release of the Tamagotchi! anime series and the introduction of several new female characters throughout, most notably the anime's breakout female lead Lovelitchi/Lovelin, Memetchi started to appear on merchandise and promotional material significantly less. However, she still remained a staple character and has appeared on almost every virtual pet release since her debut. 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 eyes each have 3 eyelashes both on the top and bottom, and she had a wide mouth. Her body is orange and she has a large, round head. Her arms and legs are very thin like sticks. In the original art style, they are the same color as the outlines, and in the anime, they are colored dark brown. Furthermore, her sprites and original art display her with a more yellowish tint, but her anime appearance has a more reddish tint that makes the shade of orange appear darker.
Though Memetchi doesn't normally have colored cheeks, she does on certain plush toys, artwork, and when she is blushing in the anime. They are usually a darker orange or reddish color, but they have been shown as pink or yellow in some artwork. When she is mad, her curl looks ragged and her cheeks go puffy.
Memetchi is a very stylish, feminine, child-like Tamagotchi who loves to have fun. She enjoys daydreaming, dancing, dressing up, and anything swirly, which is why many of her belongings have swirls on them. She is often seeing with pink roll cake and swirly-faced teddy bears. Despite being bright and cheerful, she is sensitive and somewhat defensive of her appearance. If criticized, she will most likely stare and say, "You're being mean to me!"
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. Some media also depicts her as being good at cooking, and fond of flowers.
In Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop 2, Memetchi says that orange is her favorite color. She also loves pink. Her favorite foods are cupcakes and oranges, and she dislikes fish.

In the Anime
Memetchi's personality is similar to how she is described in other media, except she is more stubborn and has a temperamental streak. She is a feminine young girl who is very sensitive about her appearance, and cherishes her perfect curl. Whenever she is having a bad hair day, she becomes very depressed. But if anybody insults her appearance, she becomes furious. An example of this is in episode 15, where she burst with rage when Uwasatchi and Safetytchi spread the false rumor that her curl is fake and that she's actually bald. She also loves beautiful dresses and accessories.
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. Whenever she is feeling down, Mametchi and Kuchipatchi would cheer her up.
Memetchi often hangs out with Violetchi and Makiko. She is also great friends with Lovelitchi, and was the first student to talk with her when she joined Tamagotchi School. They bonded over the charm on Lovelitchi's bag, and Memetchi really wanted to return it to her when Lovelitchi accidentally left it behind. Like most Tamagotchis, she is a big fan of Lovelin.
Though they can be considered friends, 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, which are usually started by Makiko bragging about herself or making snide remarks towards Memetchi. They are often shooting glares at each other, especially during school. Mametchi sometimes steps in to put a stop to their arguments.
The story of how Memetchi and Violetchi became friends was shown in Let's Go! Tamagotchi. Memetchi saved Violetchi from getting hit by a soccer ball, but in the process, she accidentally squashed her flowers. At first, Memetchi was offended that Violetchi was brushing off her apology, but Memetchi came back later to help fix the flowers. After that, she also helped Violetchi open up and be more outgoing. This showed that Memetchi's bright personality is contagious to those she befriends. The two of them have been shown making flower crowns for each other.
Aside from Makiko, Memetchi also has a tendency to fight with her little sister Imotchi. This is because Imotchi is blunt, smarter than Memetchi in some cases, and often smugly proves her wrong, which gets on Memetchi's nerves. They also don't like to share with each other and fight over things like hairbrushes or the last piece of cake.
Memetchi has a special talent, that is the ability to tell directions with her curl. By twirling it, she can scan her surroundings and determine the correct path to a destination. But sometimes her sensing talent can be faulty and cause her to go astray, which she doesn't like to admit. 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.
After winning the robot soccer tournament with Mametchi and Kuchipatchi in episode 137 of the first series, Memetchi was one of the three chosen to study abroad in Dream Town. She chose to join the cosmetology department and it became her dream to become a renowned hair-dresser. Her homestay parents are Psychetchi and Chictchi, and she practices on customers at Salon de Dream. She enjoys making hair extra curly.
