Profile

Yo-kai Watch 3

Putasockinit appears in the Scrapyard as well as in an alleyway in St. Peanutsburg.

In the anime

Putasockinit appears in Yo-kai Putasockinit where he makes Katie say useless tidbits that ruined Nate and his friends’ afternoon by saying that candy is unhealthy and that overeating red meat is one of the biggest causes of high cholesterol, which could lead to heart disease. It turns out they were eating at Nom Burger because they wanted an Emperor Krill action figure but Katie says they come at costs of $2.99 (or 320.57 yen, which is Japanese standard currency). Then he finds about the sock wearing socks and confronts him using Jibanyan but the sock wearing socks says that a store is giving the newest Next HarMEOWny album as well as autographed pictures of Fiona when the cat Yo-kai didn’t know about it and goes off in sadness. Then he summons Sandmeh which makes Nate a “cool customer”. He accepts his complaints by stitching back a ripped part of his jacket, then proceeds to use a scalpel to remove gum off his shoe and then makes his hair ”silky and smooth” which makes Putasockinit happy because all he wanted when he was alive to be helpful to people. Nate is revealed to be the sock Yo-kai’s first friend and gives him his medal. Katie thinks Nate’s hair is creepy and Nate thinks Putasockinit or some other Yo-kai made Katie say it. Putasockinit says he’s innocent and Whisper agrees but then Nate shines his watch as Whisper says the problem is his hair.

Etymology

  • "Dasocks" is a wordplay on dasoku (Japanese: 蛇足 "superfluity, unnecessary addition", literally "feet on a snake") and the English socks.
  • Putasockinit is a corruption of the phrase "Put a sock in it" which normally means "shut up".

Origin

Dasocks appears to be based on the Chinese idiom of 画蛇添足 (literally meaning "to add feet to a snake"). In the proverbial story, a group of scholars go out to drink but only have a small amount of wine among them. They then agree to have a snake-drawing contest to see who gets to drink it. One of the scholars does so and boasts about his speed in drawing, and adds feet to his snake picture thinking he has time to do so. However, another scholar finishes his drawing and lays claim to the wine, on the grounds that snakes do not have feet, so the first scholar has not drawn a snake at all. The runner-up is given the wine to the agreement of his peers. The idiom is thus synonymous with ruining one's efforts by adding or doing unnecessary things.
