Mimitchi (みみっち Mimitchi) is an adult-stage character that debuted on the second generation of the original Tamagotchi. Before Tamagotchi species were given specific genders, Mimitchi was usually described as a male. However, she was eventually specified to be female.
She became a staple character for the series during the original and Connection eras, but she was used significantly less in the anime and modern/color-screen era. Even so, she remained popular, and was voted the 9th most popular female Tamagotchi (in 2011) on the official 15th Anniversary Poll, surpassing Memetchi by 3 places.
Her name comes from the Japanese word "mimi", which means ear. This refers to her large rabbit-like ears.
Her Cantonese name, "大耳", literally means "Big Ears".
Mimitchi resembles a plump white rabbit with long, dark blue or black ears, pink cheeks, and a small, round tail. She has button eyes and a rabbit-like mouth. According to various Tamagotchi media, her ears are actually a hat and nobody knows what's inside.
On the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, she can also be hot pink, or yellow with green ears.
Mimitchi is a prodigy genius with an IQ of 200, making her one of the smartest Tamagotchis. She loves calculating numbers and reading books. She also likes writing, and has excellent penmanship. She has a sincere and polite disposition. One of her favorite meals is spaghetti with carrots.
When Mimitchi is angry, she bares her fangs and snarls.
In the Tamagotchi manga and anime, she has a speech habit. She adds the word "pyon" to the end of every sentence, which is the Japanese sound effect for bouncing. In the English dub of the Tamagotchi! anime, this is translated to "hop".
|"Mimitchi is the most serious of the new species. It has an IQ of 200, which is not as good as Mametchi, but it seems to have become more human-like and familiar with life on Earth. It likes to calculate and can use calculators easily, and can immediately split bills in its head at the bar. Recently, it's been considering getting a qualification for book-keeping. It likes carrot spaghetti and its long ears have excellent hearing, but are vulnerable to radio waves. This is a secret, but it seems that the top part of its head can be taken off like a hat." - Polygon de Hakken!! Tamagotchi (JP, 1997)|

In the Anime
Tamagotchi Video Adventures
Mimitchi first appears at the beginning of the Tamagotchi Video Adventures, following Maskutchi and Zuccitchi into the museum before noticing the fourth wall and turning on a machine that translates the Tamagotchi language into English in response.
Mimitchi is classified as a male and is paired up with Pochitchi during the expedition to Earth. The two of them find, watch and steal a television, but find that they are unable to get it to work upon returning to the Tamagotchi Planet to show Cosmotchi and resort to climbing inside to act their own show.
Let's Go! Tamagotchi
Mimitchi appears as a background character in Let's Go! Tamagotchi as a member of Mametchi's class. She never speaks in the Tamagotchi movies, but she does in the Tamagotchi! anime as a minor character.
Mimitchi was one of the only Tamagotchis (who didn't already know Lovelitchi's secret) to notice that Lovelitchi looked identical to Lovelin, and how similar their names were. She even pointed this out to Lovelitchi herself before she voluntarily revealed the secret to all her classmates, which made Lovelitchi nervous at the time. The reason Mimitchi paid attention to their similarities may be because Mimitchi is known to be smarter than most other Tamagotchis. She is best friends with Ringotchi and, like many other Tamagotchis, is a big fan of Lovelin.
In "No Boys Allowed! The Princess Day Party", she attends the princess day party with the other girls in Ms. Perfect's class. She helps herself to the feast and takes a bite of pudding. In "New Members? To Class Suddenly", many students in Mametchi's class were replaced to make room for the new Tamagotchi iD L characters. There was a scene in which Mimitchi and Ringotchi were crying over now being in separate classes, solidifying the fact that they are best friends despite their small amount of focus in the anime.
