Naandhi (Japanese: そーナンだー Sōnandā) is a Rank A, Lightning-attribute Yo-kai of the Mysterious tribe.

Naandhi evolves from Why Naant when fused with Mr. Sandmeh. In Yo-kai Watch 3, he is one of the Yo-kai required to unlock Elder Bloom.


Naandhi is a yellow, humanoid yo-kai, sitting cross-legged and hovering in the air. He has a similar appearance to a guru, with an ash-colored beard that stretches past his legs, a white turban with a blue jewel in the center, with a gold lining and a red feather pointing upwards on top of it. As well as this, Naandhi has a very meditative expression, and holds two naan breads, one in each hand. His skin gradually changes to a dark orange at his legs.

  • Naandhi is a portmanteau of Naan bread, "what" in Japanese (Japanese: Nani), and Mahatma Gandhi.
  • "Sōnandā" is a play on "Sou nanda" (Japanese: そうなんだ), a phrase for expressing agreement, equivalent to "I see."
    • The "nan" part of the name is written in the katakana script, implying that it is a pun on "naan".
  • Respondio's name come from "Responde, Tío" (Answer, Guy).
