Baddinyan (Japanese: ワルニャン Warunyan) is a Rank B Fire-attribute Yo-kai of the Charming tribe.

As of Yo-kai Watch 4, he is a One-chanside Yo-kai of the Onnen tribe.

In Yo-kai Watch Baddinyan evolves from Jibanyan when fused with Roughraff. As of Yo-kai Watch 2, Baddinyan is a stand-alone Yo-kai and can no longer be obtained by fusing Jibanyan.

In Yo-kai Watch Blasters, he is one of the Yo-kai required to unlock Shogunyan.



A purple cat yo-kai with a light purple face. Its nose is magenta, while the inner ear is golden-yellow. Over its eyes are a pair of sharp sunglasses, revealing the scar over the left one. He has a dark-purple pompadour. He wears a dark-blue outfit with the kanji for 'Rebel' on the back and a pair of black shoes. The tail flames are lime-green. 

Baddinyan, like Roughraff, acts like a very tame delinquent. He speaks rudely, eats sweets before dinner, and litters. Due to still being Jibanyan he adds 'nyan' to his sentences. In Yo-Kai Watch 2 Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls, he is only obtainable by fusing Jibanyan and Roughraff when you and your team see Coughkoff and Roughraff fighting over who is the spikiest. If you say Roughraff is the winner, you will get Baddinyan.

Like Roughraff, his Inspirit makes others turn to delinquency.


Yo-kai Watch animation series

In Here Comes Roughraff of the anime, Jibanyan is inspirited by Roughraff and transforms into Baddinyan, promptly developing a rebellious streak, which turns out to be amusingly tame, consisting of petty misdeeds like eating two chocobars at a time and scattering the wrappings around.

Jibanyan is transformed into Baddinyan in Titanics Of The Caribbean in the role of a pirate captain for the pirate scene of Directator's latest film "Yo-Titanic-ai" where he was assisted by B3-NK1, Dazzabel, and Roughraff.

He was also briefly seen in Mochismo's Recap. He was silent for most of the time, but the only quote he uttered was "Yeah, He's Tough!" At the end.

Yo-kai Watch

The player has to fuse Jibanyan with Roughraff. Alternatively, Baddinyan can be fought at the "Four-Wheeled Cool" Yo-kai Spot.

Yo-kai Watch 2

The player has to go to the apartments in Shopper's Row, where Roughraff and Coughkoff are arguing over who is spikier. To obtain Baddinyan, the player has to speak to Roughraff and say he's the spikier one. He will then fuse with Jibanyan to form into Baddinyan, the fusion breaking apart after Baddinyan gives the player their medal.

Yo-kai Sangokushi

Baddinyan can be freed from the Crank-a-kai with a Chinatown Coin.

Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble

Baddinyan can only be freed from the Crank-a-kai, though the player could also get him in Stage 44 during the Terror Time Event.

Fuse Jibanyan with Roughraff, this only consumes Roughraff. Baddinyan can also be freed from the Crank-a-kai.

  • Baddinyan's Japanese Soultimate name contains an old slang typical of the delinquent youth that was often used in graffiti, namely writing yoroshiku (よろしく, "nice to meet you") with the individual kanji for "night", "dew", "death" and "suffering" (夜露死苦) formed into one homophonic string.
  • The Japanese name of the Pompadour skill is the local name for the ducktail hairstyle, which got its name from London's Regent Street.
  • In the anime, Baddinyan is one of the few forms Jibanyan has who is simply inspirited by another Yo-kai, rather than being fused together.
