He has black hair worn in a top knot with two tufts of bangs hanging loosely over a white headband depicting a peach on it. It wears a red and goldenrod jacket and teal pants over his gold belt. He carries a banner that says "Nippon ichi" (Japanese: 日本一 "Japan's best").

  • Crank-a-kai (Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble): "Thank you for setting me free! You can come demon-hunting with me any time!"

In the anime


  • "Momotarōnyan" and "Momonyan" is a combination of Momotarō and nyan.
    • His Wibble Wobble name, "Taronyan", is his Japanese name shortened as well, but differently.


Momonyan is based on Momotarō,a famous character of the eponymous fairytale.


Peach Radish Hunting

The Korean design of Momonyan's B Medal.

  • In Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble, Momonyan was called "Taronyan." Despite this, Pheasanyan calls Momonyan "Momotaronyan" when the player befriends him in the game.
  • Momonyan's Soultimate is named "Treatocalypse" in Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble, but it renamed to "Dumpling Dice" in Yo-kai Watch Blasters.
  • Momonyan is the one of the few Yo-kai to be redesigned in the Korean version:
    • His Korean B Medal has lacks his hair and banner.
    • In the Korean version of Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble, the text on Momonyan's flag is translated from "日本一" (Japan's best) to "천하제일" (world's best). Strangely, this change was not done for the Korean version of Yo-kai Watch Blasters.
