He wears a black graduation cap and shawl held by a gold string. Attached to the tassel of his cap is a small gold flame. He holds a staff with a teal poop on top.

He is an intelligent Yo-kai who appreciates the knowledge. According to him, he began Inspiriting people after noticing that people were more interested in sounding intelligent rather than actually pursuing knowledge. He enjoys spouting useless trivia to impress others, and then making others do the same by Inspiriting them. He hates when his trivia is ignored, which can make him agitated or depressed.

Poofessor makes the possessed person or people spout out useless trivia by putting a lump of his "trivia deuce" on their head. Apparently, Poofessor can assume an ultimate form by Inspiriting himself with his own deuce, which would amplify the effects of his trivia spouting on a global scale. He also has a diploma in his hat that will be destroyed if he fails to make people properly recite trivia.


Poofessor appears as a Legendary Yo-kai starting from Yo-kai Watch 2. As a Legendary Yo-kai, one must befriend/recruit the following Yo-kai first in order to undo his seal.

In the anime

Main article: Poofessor (anime)

Poofessor appears in Legend Of Poofessor, inspiriting Nate's friends at lunchtime and making them spout useless trivia. After Nate identifies him, he summons Jibanyan to deal with the Yo-kai, but Jibanyan ends up being wowed by Poofessor's trivia relating to Next HarMEOWny. Nate decides to summon Komasan, who Poofessor attempts to impress but fails to do so as Komasan proves to be easily distracted and ends up not listening, eventually falling asleep. Outraged, Poofessor decides to assume his ultimate form by Inspiriting himself, by consuming his trivia deuce, much to Nate and Whisper's horror.

He reappears in Komasan Taxi - Poofessor, where he ends up on the Koma Cab. After he spouts useless trivia relating to taxis around the world, he breaks the fourth wall by contemplating about himself not being featured prominently enough in the anime.

In EP209, Poofesor was summoned to help Spewart not get sick when riding in buses, or etc. Unfortunately, while he was summoned he lost the Shopping Mall Roulette, which is a bit ironic, since if you lose the Shopping Mall Roulette, you win toilet paper. The ironic part being that Poofessor is a tiny bit related to toilet paper itself.


His Japanese name "Unchikuma" translates as "demon of vast knowledge" (Japanese: 蘊蓄魔), while sounding the same as unchi-kuma (Japanese: うんち熊 "poop bear"). His appearance is also based off Winnie-the-Pooh. Poofessor is also a combination of "poop" and "professor".


  • Oddly enough, in Yo-kai Watch 3, even though he clearly appears in the first half of Hailey Anne's story, he still needs to be unsealed from his Legend Page in the Medallium to befriend him.
  • Just like every other Legendary Yo-kai that appeared in the anime (with the exception of Shogunyan, and Dandoodle,) Poofessor appears without Nate having to collect the required Yo-kai Medals.
  • Poofessor is considered the most recurring Legendary in the anime series.
  • He's the first and only Legendary Yo-kai to get an unlucky summon from the Yo-kai Watch Dream in EP209.
  • His first appearance in the anime series stirred some controversy; the implication he ate his own trivia deuce garnered some letters of objection, necessitating a segment on Komasan Taxi. Afterwards, it becomes a minor gag (starting with “Yo-kai Why Naant“) that the more graphic actions with his trivia deuce quickly hail another ride on Komasan Taxi, which he accepts resignedly.
    • In the dub, the shot of Poofessor consuming the Trivia Deuce has been replaced with Nate and Whisper looking in disgust. However, it wasn't done for the Komasan Taxi segment.
