A plum rice ball.

Food (Japanese: たべもの Tabemono) is a type of item in the Yo-kai Watch games. They are used for healing the health of a player's Yo-kai friend, while drinks replenish their Soultimate Gauge, as well as swaying enemy Yo-kai to join the player's side and as means for completing certain requests and favors.


Overview

Food is essential for befriending Yo-kai in the games, which can be given before or during the battle. Though, giving the food before the battle will prevent the player from applying stat-changing Talisman onto the player's Yo-kai in their party.

Each Yo-kai has a favorite and despised food, as feeding them in battle can increase or decrease the chances of the Yo-kai being recruited. The same also applies to Yo-kai in the party as feeding them will restore their health or Soultimate bar greater or lower than usual. In Yo-kai Watch 3, an item called the Forbidden Fruit gives the ability for the player to instantly befriend the Yo-kai after they're defeated.

They can be brought from places like Everymart, which sells Rice Balls and Drinks while places like Nom Burger have Hamburgers. They're also found in vending machines around town that can be interacted with to buy some drinks.

Different types of food can be told from the description that say "Yo-kai will like you a bit", "some" and "a ton" which are four different levels of food which is either harder to obtain or more expensive in price. The better quality of the food is fed the bigger chances that the Yo-kai will be befriended.

They are also required for Quests or Favors, where giving some away in the latter will lead to a reward being offered for in return.

Due to the befriending system being changed in Yo-kai Watch 4, they serve much less of a use in the game, with it only being used to heal Yo-kai in battle or for Quests. In Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble, however, Food is used only for befriending Yo-kai.

Trivia

  • The Candy type's Japanese name, dagashi, refers to a type of candy and snacks that became widespread after World War II. Mainly marketed to children with small allowances, they are very cheap and feature brightly-colored packaging, and occasionally come with small prizes like figurines and free snack tickets. Though the term usually refers to sweet candy, it can also include snacks like senbei (flavoured rice crackers), umaibō (stick-shaped corn snacks) and candied fruit. They used to be sold in dedicated shops called dagashi-ya, but are now increasingly sold in convenience stores as well.
    • Gooey Candy is neri-ame (ねり飴, "kneaded candy"), a syrup-like candy that is meant to be poured on chopsticks and kneaded until it changes consistency.
  • Toragon   is the only Yo-kai who likes Takoyaki.
