Tarakotchi original

Genders and Appearances:

Tarakotchi (たらこっち) is an adult character who debuted on the original Tamagotchi. He could originally be either gender but has been male since the Chou Jinsei Enjoi Tamagotchi Plus in Japan, and the Version 4 worldwide. He was formerly obtained with severe neglect, but nowadays, he is obtained with either average or bad care.


Tarakotchi is naughty and selfish. He also has short patience and chatters a lot. He is a hasty type, so he is always in a state of confusion. He loves to roll and tumble, and is an avid skateboarder. An unfortunate flaw is his stinky feet, but its charming smile is the secret to its popularity. His favorite food is Teriyaki Chicken.

The Nintendo Power guide to the Tamagotchi Gameboy game stated: "A voracious appetite and smelly feet are just two of the infamous Tarakotchi's vices. It's also surprisingly selfish for an adult Tamagotchi."


Tarakotchi has giant lips and thin legs but no arms, a small tuft of hair rendered as a mohawk in some artworks, pink cheeks, and a fat, bean-shaped body - in the original Japanese artwork, he had visible toes. In his original US artwork, his hair is missing, his body is pink instead of flesh tone, and his beak is violet instead of pink. On the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app, it has pink and green variations. He also slightly resembles a duck or a chicken.

On Virtual Pets

Original Tamagotchi

Tarakotchi can come from either Tamatchi or Kuchitamatchi with extreme neglect. Tarakotchi is considered the worst character on this version, and will pass away after a couple of days at most. Tarakotchi sleeps at 10 PM and wakes up at 10 AM.

Tamagotchi Connection

Tarakotchi can appear in any generation (the only regular adult that can do so) and is one of the three average care adults, evolving from the four teenagers if they received better physical care than emotional care. If a teenager has most of its discipline calls were ignored, Tarakotchi, Hanatchi and Androtchi will be the best adults that they can become even if they had no care mistakes.

Tarakotchi's two items earned from connecting are the Skateboard and Boots, and its unique meal and snack is a chunk of meat on a bone and a donut - both of which it eats in single bites. Tarakotchi sleeps from 10pm to 9am.

Tamagotchi Connection V2 and V3

Tarakotchi appears in odd generations with average care. Its favorite food is fish and it dislikes sandwiches.

Entama and Version 4

Tarakotchi is a male Kuchi family adult, and will evolve from Young Kuchipatchi or Oniontchi if they have a majority of Style points. On the V4, in addition to this they need to have been given above-average care and have a total of at least 60 skill points.

As with all adults on the Entama, Tarakotchi will graduate from school 24 to 48 hours after evolution and sleeps from 10pm to 9am. It also sleeps from these times on the V4 and retains its food preferences from the two previous versions.
