Princess Tamako (たまこ姫 Tamako Hime) is an adult female character that debuted on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 5 Celebrity. She is the daughter of the Gotchi King and the Gotchi Queen, and the older sister of Princess Tamakoko.
Princess Tamako has a round head with blonde hair done up in a bun. She has white skin and pink cheeks. Her eyes are oval-shaped, and each one has two sparkles and four eyelashes. She has a small mouth which is similar to a cat's. She wears a pink dress which billows out. The dress has two layers, and each layer has a row of lace around the bottom, and several little white bows. The dress also has a red collar and a golden brooch. Princess Tamako has a pink crown with dark pink gems on it atop her head.
Princess Tamako is generally kind and friendly. She loves to have fun, but she has an elegant nature as well. However, sometimes she breaks out of her proper composure, such as when she burst into uncontrollable laughter in an episode of Let's Go! Tamagotchi. She has an edge of determination to her. In the Tamagotchi! anime, she once set out with Mametchi and his friends to find a cure when her father got sick. Although Prince Tamahiko has deep feelings for her, she does not want him to be her prince, and she politely but firmly rejects his marriage proposals.
