Ojitchi appears as a head of an elderly man, with heavy eyelids that cover his eyes. He has two green, frail legs, and a balding head, having only two puffs of hair on either side and one long strand on the top of his head. His sprite artwork has also depicted him with bubbles floating on either side of his head, though their actual purpose is not known.
Ojitchi's personality was not fully defined with the release of the Osutchi, but it is said that he and Otokitchi always watch younger Tamagotchi fall in love, "warmly from the shadow".
In his modern form, he is depicted as an old man that really can't stand being bested by other Tamagotchi characters. From the Keitai Kaitsuu Tamagotchi Plus onward, he has also been depicted as a salesman, traveling around Tamagotchi Town with his cart, selling food and items to others.
Ura Ojitchi (ウラおじっち) is Ojitchi's Ura counterpart. He looks and acts identical, except he emits a blue Ura glow.
Appearances in Virtual Pets
Ojitchi is a TMP4 character that evolves from ChoMametchi with perfect care, if he remains unmarried by the age of 13. Like Sutebotchi, Ojitchi will refuse to marry, and will get gradually more needy each day until he dies. His meal is a mushroom, and his snack is a bottle of sake. His base weight is 10g, and sleeps from 8 PM to 7 AM.
In early test versions of the toy distributed in August 1997, he also appears when a Mesutchi and Osutchi begin to mate, bringing the Osutchi character a futon. This was removed from the final version of the toy.
Tamagotchi Connection V1-V4.5
Ojitchi will evolve from any male adult if he has lived for a long period of time without getting married. On the V4 and V4.5, he will retire from his job and be given a cane by the Gotchi King, and selecting Work from the connection icon will show him walk to his former place of employment and wistfully gaze from afar.
The matchmaker will stop visiting after evolution, leaving connection as Ojitchi's sole means of marriage. He can only marry an Otokitchi, and doing sl will result in the birth of a male baby that will evolve into Oyajitchi.
The conditions to obtain Ojitchi and the results from marrying Otokitchi, are the same on these versions as on the Connection pets, but while the matchmaker will still not appear at specific times of day the player can use the matchmaker house item to allow their Ojitchi to mate without needing to connect to another device, or use the Hatena dating cards. On the Uratama, he is replaced with Ura Ojitchi and can also use the Bikkuri dating cards.
Ojitchi is student #021. His favorite subject is Japanese language.
Tamagotchi Music Star
Ojitchi can evolve from any male adult if he has lived for a long period of time without getting married, and his bandmates will evolve into seniors shortly afterward. Marrying him to Otokitchi or Dango Obatchi will not yield any special offspring.
Tamagotchi Plus Color
Ojitchi will evolve from any male adult if he has lived for a long period of time without getting married. If he marries Otokitchi, the resulting offspring will become a special adult (Oyajitchi if male, Grippatchi if female, Tensaitchi Jr. or Tensaikotchi Jr on the Hexagontchi). If Ojitchi visits the Matchmaker, Otokitchi will offer herself as a marriage partner. As the Adult stage and their equivalents were made permanent on later color versions, this is Ojitchi's latest appearance as a raisable character.
Ojitchi can be obtained through either severe neglect of any male adult (appearing as early as age 4) or having a male adult for a long period of time without marriage (as late as age 20).
Tamagotchi m!x 20th Anniversary m!xWhile he is not raisable, Ojitchi will show up in photographs of Oyajitchi as his father in any photographs of him that contain his parents.
As a Salesman
Ojitchi will appear carrying a cart at 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM, and will offer one item at random for sale, which can be a meal, snack, standard item, or ingredient (on the Entama/Uratama). He acts happy if the user accepts, and upset if he is refused. On the Uratama, this role is played by his Ura counterpart, Ura Ojitchi.
On the Entama and Uratama, Ojitchi can be summoned at any time with the shop stall item that can be purchased online for 30000G.
Ojitchi makes a brief cameo appearance on Let's Go! Tamagotchi. In the episode Super Heroine Chamametchi!, he and Otokitchi appear briefly on television, sitting down and sipping tea as ChaMametchi flips through several different channels.
In the movie sequel Tamagotchi: Happiest Story in the Universe!, Ojitchi and Otokitchi play minor roles. When they argue over an issue, Hapihapitchi appears to make them happy, and they make up to each other. Later on, they argue again, but refuse to make up on their own, requesting Hapihapitchi do it for them.
- On the Keitai, a new sprite was added as a new frame for his eating animation. On the V2 and V3, this was accidentally turned into his default sprite.
