Not to be confused with Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits.

The Bony Spirits (Japanese: 元祖 Ganso) is a faction that appears in Yo-kai Watch 2. They are lead by Arachnus, and consists of members that prefer doughnuts with custard filling in them. Their rivals are the Fleshy Souls.


Prior to the events of Yo-kai Watch 2, Arachnus and Toadal Dude wanted to give the previous Lord Enma doughnuts but could not decide on whether to get cream or custard-filled doughnuts. The two then formed what would become the Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls.

In Chapter 8, Toadal Dude and Arachnus decide to fight the dispute out at Flatpot Plains.

At the end of the game, the Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls eventually set their differences aside.



In-universe, the group's name comes from the kind of doughnuts they wanted: Spirit Doughnuts.
