Video games

Anime series


A sword-shaped Yo-kai with a very droopy blade. His handle is light green with two lavender diamonds. Between them in the center is a diamond that appears opened like a mouth, above of which lie his eyes and nose. His bottom is black while he has the hands and feet of a human with pale skin coloring. The blade is split into two colors of dull white and lavender with a vertical, wavy border.

True to his ability, Cutta-nah has an extremely lazy and laid-back personality, preferring to do little more than laze around.

Anyone Inspirited by Cutta-nah gains an urge to slack off. This can either turn an average person into a complete slacker or convince a workaholic to take a break.

"Wow. He's pretty speedy for a slacker."
—Whisper noting Cutta-nah's speed.

In the anime, the effect of Cutta-nah's Inspiriting is divided into power levels that scale. The lowest level (1) convinces the Inspirited to take a break, while the highest level (4) causes the Inspirited to laze around and slack so much, they refuse to move and appear to completely liquefy. The power level can be changed voluntarily by Cutta-nah or by pressing one of the diamonds on his handle body, which functions as a button. This causes his hilt (which is marked with indicating numbers) to rotate until the desired power level is selected. Despite his laziness, he is actually quick as noted by Whisper

In the anime

Cutta-nah debuts in EP051, having Inspirited Lily Adams and made her lazy to the point that she appeared to liquefy. After identifying Cutta-nah, Nate and Whisper attempt to defeat Cutta-nah by summoning Jibanyan, only to find Jibanyan Inspirited as soon as he was summoned. Nate struggles with Cutta-nah in a bid to turn his mom and Jibanyan back to normal, accidentally activating Cutta-nah's laziness level controller.Cutta-nah explains this ability, having forgotten to mention it on account of his laziness, and after some fumbling Nate tones Cutta-nah's power down to the lowest setting, leaving Lily and Jibanyan refreshed after taking a break. Subsequently, Nate asks Cutta-nah to Inspirit his dad, as he has been overworking. As a result, Aaron decides not to go to the office on a Sunday like he originally planned and chooses to take the day off so he can spend time with his wife.

Cutta-nah reappears in EP169, where he ruins one of the windsocks.
