We recently talked about Yo-kai Watch’s popularity in Japan, which is growing into something of a social phenomenon with the kids, while still being enjoyable for older folks. Amidst the merchandising blitz, the series’ favorite ghost cat character, Jibanyan, now has a neat little figure to please his fans. (Thanks, Game Watch)
Jibanyan became a yokai ghost after being hit by a car. Following that, he turned into one of the quirkier characters of Yo-kai Watch. In addition to his “Hundred Paws” ability, he can also curse anyone just by having them touch his waistband, but don’t worry, I think is figure’s is safe to touch.
The Jibanyan figure comes with three different parts for his face, and various stickers to depict his many emotions.
Additionally, his mecha-counterpart, known as Robonyan, also has its own figure. This one comes with special parts for its mouth, jet boosters, rocket punch, and more.
