Santaclautchi (サンタクロっち Santakurotchi) is a male adult character that serves as the modern incarnation of the 1998 Santaclautchi. He debuted on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 1 as a holiday animation, and has appeared on all modern releases since.
Santaclautchi resembles Classic Santaclautchi, except the "mustache" portion of the beard has been removed, making his mouth more visible.
On December 24th at 10:30 PM, Santaclautchi appears and leaves a present for the Tamagotchi. The present is merely cosmetic, and disappears when the Tamagotchi wakes up.
In the Anime
In the anime series, Santaclautchi only made exclusive appearances in Christmas-themed episodes. He made his first anime appearance in the episode, Rednosetchi is Lost! and continued to appear in each Christmas episode every year. Like the real Santa, he dedicates bringing Christmas joy by bringing the kind Tamagotchi folk presents every year on Christmas Eve. When walking in Tamagotchi Town, he wears a black cloak so that Tamagotchis don't recognize him as Santaclautchi, but the cloak usually falls off. Even when this happens, most Tamagotchis don't think he's Santaclautchi because so many other Tamagotchis are dressed as Santa during Christmas time. He is often getting separated from Rednosetchi.

On the Tamagotchi app, Santaclautchi is a special guest. He can be married at the Tama Love Party. He was recently the special guest in December 2019.
