Rinsin Repete (Japanese: たらいまわし Taraimawashi) is a Rank D, Earth-attribute Yo-kai of the Eerie tribe.



Rinsin Repete appears as a humanoid Yo-kai with a greenish-bluish flame on its forehead and a purple body. He also has purple lips. It only wears a loincloth and spins a wheel around its body.

He can make people go on wild goose chases which is a pursuit of something unattainable. In this case it’s unattainable because he forces people to pass things on to another.


Game data

In the anime

Rinsin Repete first appears in Yo-kai Rinsin Repete, where he makes Nate go on a wild goose chase to find where some paperwork goes to. He is then revealed in the Springdale Elementary gym where he is challenged to spin a pool float, a square shaped piece of cardboard, a tiny donut, and then the Yo-kai Daiz. Daiz slowed him down and then made Rinsin Repete get spaced out and fall. He then gives Nate his medal and accidentally calls Daiz a sausage...

He appears again in EP128 where he asks Hailey and Usapyon for his help.


"Risin Repete" is a corruption of the phrase "Rinse and Repeat" describing a constant cycle.

"Taraimawashi" is a wordplay on taraimawashi (盥回し, acrobatic trick of spinning a washbasin on one's feet, but also "passing around, delegating".)
