Metaboritchi (めたぼりっち Metaboritchi) is a parent stage Tamagotchi character that debuted on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 5.
Metaboritchi has a round, obese figure with short arms and legs. It has beady eyes, a pink beak, and plump cheeks. In most non-sprite artwork, motion lines are added around the stomach, suggesting that it jiggles a lot. The male and female have minor differences between them. The male Metaboritchi has blue skin and a green suit, and the female Metaboritchi has yellow skin and a pink suit.

Metaboritchi evolves from Osumotchi upon marriage. Regardless of what partner it marries, the result will always be a Blended Family.
From the second Generation onward, both parents will become Metaboritchi if the children in the adult stage are overfed three times, with the children becoming Osumotchi and forming the Large Family. The parents' evolution cannot be reversed, but can also evolve into the other neglect parents (Puchioyatchi, Kashiratchi, and Okugatatchi) if the neglect conditions are met.
メタボ metabo is a slang Japanese adjective used to describe fat people and is derived from the term metabolic syndrome.
