He is one of the Yo-kai required to unlock Slurpent.
- Yo-kai Watch: Main game series:
A stout humanoid-like Yo-kai with liliac purple skin, Devourer has a purple spiral shape on the dome like tip of his head, small offset white eyes, purple lips with a scar on his right, and, most notably, large teeth with canines. He wears a large red bead necklace, a black robe with a dark gray haori, a medium gray hakama, and black sandals with socks of the same color. Devourer holds a demonic smile on his face.
When fighting Devourer as a boss, he will have pupilless eyes.
Devourer, unlike Demuncher, devours life energy (which is censored in the English version) and souls.
In Yo-kai Watch!, it is shown that he causes people to make 'fatal' mistakes. This can be either figurative (embarrassing oneself in front of a crush) or literal (Walkappa draining his head plate of water, causing his soul to leave his body and get eaten).
Devourer was obtainable through the Crank-a-kai in the first Scramble Battle Event
Devourer also occasionally appears in the Oni Crank-a-kai, and Luck Crank-a-kai in certain event periods.
Devourer can be freed from the Crank-a-kai in the past with either a Red Coin, Five-Star Coin or a Special Coin.
Devourer can also appear the Infinite Tunnel approx. 10,000 meters in, alongside other Yo-kai.
Devourer appears as a boss in an optional mission in Chapter 8.
Devourer can be befriended in a big boss mission in Red Cat Corps.
Alternatively, Devourer can be freed from the Crank-a-kai with a Special Coin.
