Dazzabel is a female Yo-kai that is most likely a skeleton. She has a skull for a head with a crack on top. She wears red lipstick and blush where her cheeks would be. She wears a red dress with black, vertical stripes with a matching bow behind her head. She has a fluffy pink colored boa and black gloves. She has a ghostly tail instead of legs and carries around a pink striped umbrella with a yellow tip.
Dazzabel is obsessed with fashion. She quickly becomes sad when she thinks she's no longer fashionable.
Anyone that Dazzabel possesses becomes obsessed with being fashionable. Ironically, the clothes they decide to wear are often flashy, gaudy and over the top. To add, if anyone tells them that they can't go out the way their dressed, the possessed will believe that it is because what they're wearing isn't fashionable enough. They would then rush off to get a "better outfit," making the situation worse.
In the anime, Nummskull is revealed as Dazzabel's son in EP106. She says that they have not seen each other for a long time. Apparently, he is the child Gutsy Bones and Dazzabel have together.

Yo-kai Watch anime series
Dazzabel first appeared in Yo-kai Dazzabel. It was the day when Nathan's class was having open class, when the parents come to watch their kids. Nathan's mother was coming, but Dazzabel had inspirited her. As a result, she planned to go dressed up. Nathan tried to get her to change, but that only made it worse. Knowing that a Yo-kai was most likely to blame, Nathan decided to stop her before his mom got to school and completely embarrassed him. It was on the way there when Nathan exposed Dazzabel. Nathan called Hungramps to stop her, since Nathan believed that he wasn't fashionable enough for Dazzabel to affect him since he was old. However, Dazzabel inspirited him as he was trying to reason with her, and inspirited Whisper as well. Whisper then revealed that there was one Yo-kai that could beat Dazzabel, Dimmy. Luckily, Dimmy was already inspiriting Jibanyan, making him ghostly and spiritless. After having a few problems with Dimmy, Whisper finally took action when Nathan's mother was just reaching school ground. Whisper "forced" Dimmy to defeat Dazzabel by pushing him into her. This made Dazzabel's bow fall off and her face much ashier in color. This freed everyone she inspirited and left her heartbroken. Her medal then fell out.
In EP027, Dazzabel was seen in Yo-kai-lifornia where she was among the Yo-kai waiting in line for the release of the Yo-kai Watch Model Zero.
In EP106, Jibanyan makes Nate accidentally summon her instead of Enerfly; nonetheless, Dazzabel was a good choice as she reunited with her long lost Nummskull, thus ending the breaking effect.
"Dazzabel" is a combination of dazzle and belle.
"Sharekofujin" is a contraction of sharekoube (Japanese: 髑髏,"skull") and fujin (Japanese: 婦人,"lady"). It might also be a pun with oshare fujin (Japanese: お洒落婦人,"fashionable lady").
Dazzabel and her evolution Rattelle might be based on the hone-onna (Japanese: 骨女,"bony woman"), a female ghost with a skeletal appearance. She pretends to be a mysterious beauty to lure men into her arms, only to reveal her ghastly visage and drains their lifeforce until they're reduced to skeletons themselves. Sometimes they are brought back to life by the love for their significant other, and will inflict them with that same fate until they join them in death.
Dazzabel's fashion might also refer to La Calavera Catrina ("The Elegant Skull"), an etching of a skeleton wearing a noblewoman's hat produced by Mexican artist Josè Guadalupe Posada, an image that became one of the symbols of Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead as it's celebrated in Mexico).
