In the Anime
Yume Kira Dream
Pianitchi originally lived in Melody Land with her father, to study music at a young age, but returned to Dream Town in her debut episode. She is currently living at Music Cafe with her mother, Cafe Mama. She is in the Music Class at Dream School and often performs her Smapi live.
Pianitchi debuted in episode 21 of Yume Kira Dream, where she first appeared playing her Smapi. When she got off the boat and left for her home, she left her suitcase behind, and Mametchi brought it back to her. This was during a time when Mametchi was in despair over Ikaritchi acting cold-hearted towards him. This confused Pianitchi, since she knew Ikaritchi as a kind-hearted man when she was younger. She cheers Mametchi up with her music and later helps figure out why Ikaritchi changed so much.
In episode 25, Pianitchi, Yumemitchi, Kiraritchi, Memetchi, and Himespetchi made a Happy Birthday version of Kirakira☆Dream for Cafe Mama. Afterwards, they decided to form the band Kirakira Girls. Pianitchi is the organizer and pianist of the band.
Pianitchi is part of the main cast of Tamagotchi! Miracle Friends. Alongside Mametchi, she was the first character to meet Miraitchi and Clulutchi. Her chemisty with Smartotchi begins from the moment she hears him playing the piano at Enchoutchi's daycare, before she even met Smartotchi in person. His performance was so beautiful, it made Pianitchi stop and listen.
In episode 12 of the series, Pianitchi prompts the Kirakira Girls reunite so they can put on a performance for Mametchi's birthday.
Since Smartotchi joins the Music Class in Dream School (to look for Dreambakutchis), he becomes classmates with Pianitchi. Pianitchi intends to befriend him, but he acts aloof towards her most of the time. However, he did reluctantly let Pianitchi slow-dance with him at the end of episode 9.
At first, Pianitchi doesn't know that Smartotchi is X-Kamen (a mysterious masked villain who is trying to take the Dreambakutchis for himself), and she helps Miraitchi and Clulutchi fight him for the Dreambakutchis sometimes. But then Pianitchi finds X-Kamen in front of Smartotchi's homestay place, and she accidentally drops her music book. X-Kamen picks up the music book and imagines the music in his head. It is the same song he always plays on his cherished piano, Clair de Lune. He gives the music book back to Pianitchi and soon removes his mask, revealing to everyone that X-Kamen is Smartotchi. Pianitchi appears the most shocked due to her strong fondness for him, but is willing to hear him out. When Smartotchi explains that he wanted to restore the last remaining piano in the future, Pianitchi and the others agree that they can share the Dreambakutchis and look for them together.
In episode 23, Pianitchi and Smartotchi are searching for a Dreambakutchi in the jungle. Pianitchi gets upset with how apathetic Smartotchi is being towards her, and she runs away and almost falls off a cliff. Smartotchi tries to save her, but they both fall. Smartotchi severely sprains his leg and Pianitchi stays with him. Smartotchi confesses that the reason he acts aloof towards her and the others is because he will one day have to separate when he returns to the future. Pianitchi tears up and assures them that they will always be Tama-Friends even after he leaves, and that they should make good memories until then. Smartotchi later agrees to perform the piano with Pianitchi before the time comes when he has to leave.
When Smartotchi leaves in the final episode, he says something to Pianitchi just as he is transporting to the future. Pianitchi quietly gasps and starts forward, but by this point, his speech is already inaudible (to both the viewers and Pianitchi). Thus, it remains a mystery what Smartotchi was saying to her. Later, Pianitchi and Smartotchi play Claire de Lune "at the same time". Despite being in completely different time periods, the same amount of time has passed since Smartotchi's departure to the future.
In GO-GO Tamagotchi!, she wanted to learn more about Mametchi's old friends, who were reunited after Dream Town and Tamagotchi Town fused together. She was introduced to them and she soon becomes friends with Melodytchi. They play professionally together and spend a day hanging out. She becomes part of Lovelin and Melodytchi's duo, transforming it into a trio. She plays the piano in Lovelin's song Rainbow Melody, and has a minor vocal role in one part. Additionally, she plays the piano in the special version of Happy Happy Harmony. She also reunites the Kirakira Girls after Himespetchi, Yumemitchi, and Kiraritchi returned and were inspired to performed again in episode 45a.
On the Tamagotchi P's, Pianitchi can be obtained on the Melody Land pierce by using the Smapi three times with any female teen.
On the Tamagotchi Friends, Pianitchi can be obtained by giving any female teen perfect care and feeding it at least 15 meals.
Young Pianitchi (ヤングピアニっち Yangu Pianitchi) first appeared in flashbacks in Tamagotchi! Yume Kira Dream episode 21. She was close with Ikaritchi and used to bring apples for him. She was also best friends with Nandetchi and they buried a time capsule together.
Piani (ピアニ) is short for the word pianist (ピアニスト), referencing to her use of her Smapi
On the other hand, "Piani" can also be a corruption of "Piano" (ピアノ) and "Pianissimo" (ピアニシモ), a kind of the force of music which is a contrast of "Forte" (フォルテ) and "Fortissimo" (フォルティッシモ).
