|Genders and Appearances:|
Otokitchi resembles the head of an old woman, with four stick-like limbs and gray hair tied up in a bun.
Otokitchi has a keen interest in helping young Tamagotchi find love. In the anime, she is married to Ojitchi.
Ura Otokitchi (ウラおトキっち) is Otokitchi's Ura counterpart. She looks and acts identical, except she emits a blue Ura glow.
Appearances in Virtual Pets
Otokitchi is a TMP4 character that evolves from ChoHimetchi with perfect care, if she remains unmarried by the age of 13. Like Tsuketchi, Otokitchi will refuse to marry, and will get gradually more needy each day until she dies. Her meal is a mushroom, and her snack is a bottle of sake. Her base weight is 10g, and sleeps from 8 PM to 7 AM.
In early test versions of the toy distributed in August 1997, she also appears when a Mesutchi and Osutchi begin to mate, bringing the Mesutchi character a futon. This was removed from the final version of the toy.
Tamagotchi Connection V1-V4.5
Otokitchi will evolve from any female adult if she has lived for a long period of time without getting married. Having her marry Ojitchi will result in the birth of a male baby that will evolve into Oyajitchi.
The conditions to obtain Otokitchi and the results from marrying Ojitchi are the same on these versions as on the Connection pets, but the player can use the matchmaker house icon to allow their Otokitchi to mate without needing to connect to another device, or use the Hatena dating cards. On the Uratama, she is replaced with Ura Otokitchi and can also use the Bikkuri dating cards.
Tamagotchi Music Star
Otokitchi will evolve from any female adult if she has lived for a long period of time without getting married. Marrying her to Ojitchi or Rexitchi will not yield any special offspring.
Tamagotchi Plus Color
Otokitchi will evolve from any female adult if she has lived for a long period of time without getting married. If she marries Ojitchi, the resulting offspring will become a special adult (Oyajitchi if male, Grippatchi if female, Tensaitchi Jr. or Tensaikotchi Jr on the Hexagontchi). If Otokitchi visits the Matchmaker, only Ojitchi will be offered. As the Adult stage and their equivalents were made permanent on later versions, this is Otokitchi's latest appearance as a raisable character on a color release.
Otokitchi can be obtained through either severe neglect of any female adult (appearing as early as age 4) or having a female adult for a long period of time without marriage (as late as age 20).
Tamagotchi m!x 20th Anniversary m!x
While she is not raisable, Otokitchi will show up in photographs of Oyajitchi as his mother in any photographs of him that contain his parents.
As the Matchmaker
In early test versions of the toy distributed in August 1997, she also appears when a Mesutchi and Osutchi begin to mate, bringing the Mesutchi character a futon. This was removed from the finalized version of the toy, distributed in December.
Tamagotchi Connection V1-V4.5, Keitai/Akai
Any adult Tamagotchi will be ready for marriage and offspring after 72 hours. From here, Otokitchi will appear with a potential mate. She appears three times a day: 11:30 AM, 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM. Otokitchi no longer appears once the Tamagotchi reaches the senior stage.
Entama and Uratama
As before, Otokitchi appears three times a day once the Tamagotchi has been an adult for 72 hours. However, a new item is available for purchase that allows the user to summon Otokitchi at any time. Additionally, there are three Dating Cards available that summon her; the resulting offspring will be Hatenatchi (on the Entama) or Bikkuritchi (on the UraTama).
Otokitchi runs the Dating Channel, and can offer a mate to a Tamagotchi once it has been an adult for 72 hours. The channel can be used up to three times a day, and cannot be used prior to adulthood. If the player attempts to view the channel after three potential spouses have been offered in a single day, it will show her asleep and play an error sound.
On English editions of the toy, she will sometimes be replaced by Planetchi, offering Sunnytchi as a mate. On the Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 Celebrity, she will sometimes be replaced by Jewelboxtchi, offering Jeweltchi as a mate. Accepting Sunnytchi or Jeweltchi will always result in the birth of a single Iwatchi.
Tamagotchi Plus Color, Tama-Go
Otokitchi no longer visits when the Tamagotchi is ready to marry; instead, the Tamagotchi must go out and visit her under the "Date Place" option.

Tamagotchi: Happiest Story in the Universe!
Otokitchi and Ojitchi 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.
Otokitchi appears a minor character.
- On the Keitai, a new sprite was added as a new frame for her eating animation. On the V2 and V3, this was accidentally turned into her default sprite.
- From the Tamagotchi iD L onward, Otokitchi has retired from her job as the Matchmaker. On the iD L and the Tamagotchi 4U, she is replaced by Love Onetchi.
- Otokitchi is sometimes referred to as "Ms. BusyBody", while Ura Otokitchi is sometimes referred to as "Osekkai Baasan". However, both variations are commonly known as "The Matchmaker".
