His name is a combination of 'macho' meaning strong, muscular and 'nyan' sound a cat makes.


His appearance, as well as his bio, could be inspired by the manga series Tiger Mask (1968 – 1971), which features a wrestler with a mask in the shape of a tiger's head, which would later inspire a inheritable wrestling title in 1980. In both fiction and in the ring, Tiger Mask started off as a feared heel in the United States, but became a face after returning to Japan when a young boy said that he wanted to be a villain like Tiger Mask when he grew up.

In the history of wrestling, there have been 6 wrestlers who have donned the title of "Tiger Mask", with the current Tiger Mask being Tiger Mask W/Kota Ibushi.


  • Although shown in the end credits of Bony Spirits and Fleshy Souls, Machonyan is a Psychic Specters exclusive Yo-kai.
  • Despite not being a robotic Yo-kai in any form of manner, Machonyan's Medallium voice has a robotic voice filter effect.
