Darknyan (Japanese: ダークニャン Dākunyan) is a Rank A, Wind-attribute, Rare Yo-kai of the Eerie tribe.

Darknyan is actually a transformation of Hovernyan.

Biology

Darknyan is a cat Yo-Kai with black and gray fur with golden yellow eyes and a fading blue stripe on his face. His nose is blue, while his inner ear, muzzle, chest and paw tips are gray. It has pale pink blushing cheeks. Around his shoulders is a sapphire cloth worn like a cape, and around his waist is a utility belt.

In the first movie, when Hovernyan receives the combined forms of Nathaniel's friends, he transforms into Darknyan.

In Yo-kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters, Verygoodsir gives Hovernyan a comic book which parodies Batman. Verygoodsir trains Hovernyan as soon as the player obtains a Dark Cape and Utility Belt.

Quotes

  • Befriended: "You need my power? Excellent. I'll help you out!"
  • Loafing: "Ready to break?"

Etymology

The name "Darknyan" is a portmanteau of Dark and Nyan, an onomatopoeia for a cat's call. It is also based on Batman's nickname "Dark Knight", which his motif is based after.

Trivia

  • In the English dub of Westward Yo!, Whisper mentions Darknyan by name in a movie made by the Directator, "Darknyan vs. Supernyan."
  • Darknyan was initially level 52, but was raised to level 75 in Psychic Specters. It was likely done so it could be easier to clear the Infinite Inferno and Divine Paradise bosses.
