Main article: Hidabat (anime)

Hidabat first appears in Yo-kai Hidabat when it inspirits Jibanyan, causing him to lock himself in Nathan's room. While trying to get Nate's soccer ball, Whisper hears an ultrasonic frequency. He then reveals that it is Hidabat that is responsible, so they have to help Jibanyan. After a few failed attempts, Nate finally forces Jibanyan out with the help of Happierre and Dismarelda. As Jibanyan tries to get back in with very little enthusiasm, Nathan frees him with the help of Fidgephant, revealing Hidabat. Hidabat tries to possess Jibanyan again after they returned from the bathroom, but Nate stops him. Then it is revealed that Hidabat is having a hard time finding a place to seclude himself because it is too bright outside. Nathan then offers Hidabat to stay in his closet, which he happily accepts, and offers his Yo-kai Medal as rent.

In The Legend of Shogunyan, Hidabat makes a cameo in Nate's closet, when Jibanyan opens the door and prior to the appearance of Shogunyan.

In Yo-kai B3-NK1, he makes another cameo; as Robonyan reboots, Hidabat peers out from the left side of the closet.

In The New Yo-kai Watch, Hidabat had somehow teleported Nate's closet to Yo-kai-lifornia so that he could be in line for the release of the Yo-kai Watch Model Zero.

In Sgt. Burly, Hidabat makes a cameo peering out from the left side of the closet when Jibanyan had been woken from his nap by Sgt. Burly having finished training Whisper.

In Every Cold Has Its Thorn(yan), when Jibanyan turned into Thornyan due to a cold, when he sneezes for the second time, one of his thorns hit Hidabat as he exited the closet. Nate went to check on him and asked if he was ok.

In The Missing Yo-kai Pad, Nate and Jibanyan enlist Hidabat to get Whisper another Yo-kai Pad after his Yo-kai Pad fell down the toilet and was flushed.

In Kaptain Komasan and The Surprise Ending, Hidabat helps Komasan and Komajiro by giving them a special potion that they use so that Phonius can see Dromp who Nate summoned as a favor to Komasan and Komajiro.

In Gnew Guy Gnomey, Hidabat gets annoyed when a rookie Gnomey trespasses into his closet. He joins Whisper and Jibanyan into trying to find it.

In Hidabat's Secret, it is revealed that Hidabat is the second richest Yo-kai and second only to Steve Jaws, having invested in the stock market, bought over several companies (consisting of Yo-Zon, Mog Mog Burger, Yolo Inc., Amalgamated Yokai, Bat's Belfries, Springdale Outlet Mall, Hib's Pencils, Yofu Hut, Hidabank, Phonius Productions, Nathaniel's Watch Company, Hidabat's Hats, Yodaphone, Mama's Dental Floss, and Bat Nap Clothing) and a sports team called the Hida Baseball Bats, and operated a hedge fund all within Nate's closet. Unknown to Nate and the others, it is also revealed that he owns thousand of closets in a massive underground operation.

In A New Watch!, Hidabat gets a Yo-kai Watch U Prototype for being a close friend of Mark Orckerberg and gives it to Nate due to it having very tiny wrists.

In EP091, Hidabat joins the white team as part of the Yo-kai Song Battle concert and brings Nate's closet much to his annoyance.

In EP102, Hidabat emails Whisper to tell Nate to summon him for Necolumbus which he has a closet for him in his collection.
