Tonmarutchi (とんまるっち) is a child stage character that debuted on the second generation of the original Tamagotchi.


Tonmarutchi resembles a round, green ball with eyes, a mouth, and a large point on the top of its head.


Tonmarutchi likes to mess up its hair. Supplemental art depicts Tonmarutchi hiding in a cardboard box when it gets nervous.

As stated by the Nintendo Power Tamagotchi Gameboy guide: "Tonmarutchi may look like Marutchi, but it's much grumpier than its cheerful cousin. It's a nervous sort, and likes to hide in small or narrow spaces."

Tonmarutchi is the sole child stage character of the Group F line. It always evolves from Shirobabytchi, and will evolve into Tongaritchi with good care or Hashitamatchi with bad care.


  • It is possible that Tonmarutchi was going to be featured on the Tamagotchi Connection Version 1, but was replaced by Kinakomotchi, since Tonmarutchi and Kinakomotchi look similar, are the two child characters, and Tonmarutchi only appears on the Generation 2 Tamagotchi.

Name Origin

"Ton" is short for "Tongari", which means a pointy hat, or a sharp point. This refers to the mound on top of its head. "Maru" means round, relating to his round body. Tonmarutchi may also come from Marutchi's name, having "Ton" added to Marutchi as a prefix.
