Takotchi (たこっち) is an adult character that first appeared on the Tamagotchi Generation 2.
Takotchi resembles Kuchitamatchi with four long legs, a red body, and a periscope on top of its head which extends its vision range, enabling it to see over fences and walls. Despite Takotchi's resemblance of an octopus, it actually isn't one. Ironically, its name translates to octopus, possibly due to its resemblance to one.
On the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, it can have a pink or green body.
Despite taking a dislike to cold water, Takotchi loves hot baths.
The Official Tamagotchi Pet Care Guide and Record book states says about Takotchi: "This is one strange pet, mostly from a lack of attention and discipline. Through the periscope-type gizmo on its head, it can see things. It likes long, hot baths and sushi."
The Nintendo Power guide to the Tamagotchi Gameboy game stated: "Takotchi has modeled itself after an Earth squid, but its multiple limbs don't give it an advantage in sports, it's an average Adult Tamagotchi."

Tamagotchi Generation 2
Takotchi evolves from Tongaritchi with significantly bad care, or Hashitamatchi with below average care. If the Tamagotchi had any Discipline, the meter will empty upon evolving. Takotchi wakes at 10 AM, sleeps at 10 PM, and has a base weight of 20. Takotchi is the worst adult possible, and often only lives for up to three days before dying.

"Tako" means octopus in Japanese.
- A misplacement on Bandai's original growth chart suggested that Kusatchi was the worst possible adult on the P2, and it was swapped with Takotchi. In actual fact, Kusatchi is the second unhealthiest adult and Takotchi is the unhealthiest. Takotchi shares its animation patterns with Tarakotchi and as this video shows, taking care of Hashitamatchi the same way as a Kuchitamatchi would be to achieve Nyorotchi will result in an evolution to Kusatchi.
