Tsubutchi is small and round, with a slightly pointed head; it is more rounded in the original artwork, and more pointed in the modern artwork. The female variation is white with black eyes and mouth. The male was identical until the Tamagotchi Connection Version 4, where it became black with white eyes and mouth.
Tsubutchi is laid-back, never worrying or panicking. Despite its small size, Tsubutchi can lift the heaviest objects without breaking a sweat.

Mesutchi and Osutchi
Tsubutchi is a TMP2 baby born when either Pyonchitchi or Bunbuntchi marries either Pyonkotchi or Bunkotchi, or if Hiratchi or Piratchi marry a TMP3 or TMP4 adult. After the parent leaves, Tsubutchi will stay a baby for 24 hours after waking up, and will evolve into Hyurutchi.
Tsubutchi loses a heart every 30 minutes, sleeps from 8 PM to 9 AM and has a base weight of 5g. It will make a total of three discipline calls throughout its infancy, and will always start off with at least 25% discipline upon evolving into Hyurutchi unless it has at least three care mistakes - Tsubutchi's neglect or lack thereof will determine if Hyurutchi can undergo TMP degeneration.
Tamagotchi Connection Version 4/ 4.5
From hatching, the odds of getting the male or female Tsubutchi are 50/50. After one hour of care, Tsubutchi will evolve into one of the four child characters. A male Tsubutchi born from Ojitchi and Otokitchi marrying will evolve into Oyajitchi.
- With the release of the Tamagotchi Connection Version 4, Tsubutchi was given alternate coloring for the male variation. While Bandai's official growth chart does not give the two different names, the female version is sometimes called "ShiroTsubutchitchi" (しろツブっち), or alternatively, the male is called "KuroTsubutchitchi" (くろツブっち). However, these names are used primarily by the fanbase, and neither names are official.
Tsubu means "drop" (as in a raindrop). Its name may also come from the term tsubura, which is used to described something "round and cute".
