Video games

Anime series


Happierre has a yellow, gaseous-looking body, with diminutive arms. He sports squinty eyes, a wide mouth, and a green mustache, vaguely resembling a Dali style. His hair is green and styled to resemble a normal haircut, and has a daisy on the top.

He shows a cheerful disposition, which is evidenced by his constant smile. He is calm, gentle and most of the time, he tries to solve problems in a peaceful manner, for it is the main reason of his summoning by Nate. He also speaks in a French accent, while in the Japanese version he ends his sentences with "bono". On rare occasions, he can sometimes get angry.

Happierre's aura warms and smooths the atmosphere where he is present, ensuring a cheerful and amiable disposition of the people on it. Said aura can negate the dampening effects of depressing Yo-kai such as Dismarelda, normalizing the atmosphere. This ability has also been shown to negate Cynake's inspiriting.

In the anime

Main article: Happierre (anime)

Happierre makes his debut in the first episode of the anime, EP001, when Whisper brings him to Nate's house in order to make amends with Dismarelda and thus, preventing Nathan's parents to break their marriage due to her aura. Dismarelda quickly makes peace with Happierre, and the resulting combination of their auras eases the atmosphere and causes Nathan's parents to do the same. Sometime after leaving, he and Dismarelda give Nate their Yo-kai Medals.

Happierre and Dismarelda both make cameo appearances in EP002. Nate tries to summon Happierre with the Yo-kai Watch, while Happierre says they can't come because they're vacationing in Hawaii.

Happierre is summoned by Nate in EP006, and asks him if he could do something to calm down Katie. With his happy aura, he successfully does so.

Happierre and Dismarelda are both summoned by Nate in EP008 to try and get Jibanyan out of Nate's room. They melt under the door and slide Jibanyan out. They then leave to go to their romantic getaway.

In EP027, Happierre was seen in Yo-kai-lifornia. He was seen in line waiting for the release of the new Yo-kai Watch Model Zero while Dismarelda did some shopping at the nearby stores.

In EP145, when Runsure causes everyone to run around, this starts an impromptu marathon. Happierre is revealed to have legs and runs fast when he asks who put his flower on his head. When it is revealed that Dismarelda puts it on him every morning, he starts to slow down, but then questions why she does that and wins the race, with his flower going across the finish line first.

He appeared in the movie in M01, where he used his Soultimate, "Air Of Happiness" to calm down the Wicked but also causing Mermaidyn and Walkappa to become inspirited themselves by Happierre's happy aura.

In the manga


He appears to be the first Yo-kai revealed by the light of the Yo-kai watch sought out by his wife in Nate's Lucky Day.

In Chapter 2 Jibanyan helped him find his wife, while helping Nate take Dismarelda away and making friends with Nate.

He is invoked by Nate in Chapter 7 to fight Negatibuzz but he fails and is spirited by the latter.

In chapter 10 he is invoked by Nate to spirit Negasus but Negasus spirits him by making him steal sweets, after defeating Negasus he celebrates with Nate, Whisper, Jibanyan, Mochismo and Negasus with the stolen sweets already paid for.


  • "Happierre" is a portmanteau of "happy" and "Pierre."
  • "Honobono" is a play on "honobono" (Japanese: ほのぼの heartwarming).


  • Happierre's first appearance in Yo-kai Watch parallels his first appearance in the anime. The difference is that he does not give his Yo-kai Medal to the player before leaving.
  • Happierre's marriage to Dismarelda could be a nod to the old adage "opposites attract," for both Yo-kai have a romantic interest in one another but have complete opposite personalities and effects on humans.
  • Happierre and Grumpus Khan are one of the few Yo-kai to keep their Japanese verbal tics in rare instances; the localised version of Yo-kai Watch Blasters (video game) is an example.
  • When snapped in the Yo-kai Cam, his tip is the following: "Your smiling face brightens the mood around you!"
  • In the anime, Happierre has been seen to get angry twice.
    • In EP073, Happierre got angry when Irewig used his pincers to poke Happierre.
    • In EP107, Happierre got angry when he found out that Whisper couldn't even remember his name.
  • In EP145, it is shown that Happierre has legs.
