Ben Tover (Japanese: のらりくらり Norarikurari) is a Rank C Wind-attribute Yo-kai of the Eerie tribe.



Ben Tover is a pale-skinned humanoid Yo-kai who has eyes with yellow scleras, one tooth in his mouth, and black hair with a dark magenta tip tied up. He wears a dark turquoise robe tied by a blue obi, white pants, and zori (sandals). His body has been stretched oddly long, causing his upper half of the body to appear bending right next to his lower half.

His ability is to make his targets not get to the point of a conversation and talk about something else. Also, if one calls upon his ability, their bodies get stretched and wiggly just like his.
