Appearance

Roughraff's a green-skinned saurian Yo-kai with a short tail, large orange claws on his feet, a fairly muscular build, a pointed, curved mouth, a long red tongue, and orange markings surrounding his eyes and inner ears. His most notable trait is his large orange pompadour, giving him the appearance of a Japanese high school delinquent. He wears purple pants and white gauze around his waist.

Personality

He has an intimidating personality, in anime and games he has been seen as intimidating various yo-kai such as Komasan, and asks them for money, although he befriended Manjimutt and other rebellious yo-kais causing problems for Nathan, Jibanyan and Whisper in multiple  Sometimes, he also seems to be very brave but sometimes he seems somewhat shy and clueless with Yo-kais stronger than him.

Matching his delinquent-like appearance, Roughraff behaves in a very similar manner; he has little respect for others and tries to solve problems in a rough manner. In the anime, he attempted to mug Komasan, referring to him as a hillbilly; he also tried to fight Fidgephant, which only resulted in him getting inspirited by the elephant Yo-kai. When he got summoned by Nate Adams for the first time, he answered in a noticeably rude way of talking.

In spite of his negative qualities, he is able to develop respect for certain people, such as Manjimutt after their fist brawl; Peckpocket after a pick-pocketing contest, striking an odd friendship; Bruff after learning he acted just like him when he was young; Bowminos after learning that he's a tough and bad apologizing to Bowminos; Rawry, since they're both troublemakers; Oh Wheel after driving him recklessly without crashing him; and Blazion. Despite this, Roughraff's methods of rebellious behavior tend to be on the tame and petty side, with these attributes transferring onto those he possesses.

Roughraff has an odd phobia of hot waters, as seen when he was summoned by Nate to confront Sproink, which can be attributed to his lizard-like nature working against him.

In the English version of the anime, he has the accent of a greaser or biker, which caused Sproink to refer to him as such.

Roughraff's most notable ability revolves around his possession; he can bring out the rudeness in the people he possesses, causing them to act as delinquents. The effects don't wear off until Roughraff's defeated. In the anime, he did this to Eddie Archer.

He's also very fast, striking a motorbike driving like pose and running at high speeds when he's being chased. However, the only times Roughraff actually did this were in EP003 and EP122.

Roughraff's one of Nate's usual choice when he needs a tough Yo-kai. When summoned, Roughraff always answers him in a rough tone of talking. After befriending Peckpocket, he bluntly said to Nathan to not disturb him when causing mischief with the bird Yo-Kai. He was first summoned by Nate when Fidgephant was causing the boys at his school trouble, but Roughraff was quickly ensnared by the Yo-kai's power, causing him to wait in line. In EP072, EP076, EP122, it looked like Roughraff got annoyed by Nate summoning him.

Also, in the anime, Roughraff manages to earn the friendships of several Yo-kai, usually after confronting them. Roughraff forged a singular friendship with Peckpocket after he and Peckpocket continuously took each others stuff, they became friends. After Peckpocket befriended Nate, he and Roughraff left to hang out; became friends with Rawry, and he caused havoc in the neighborhood; quickly grew to respect Manjimutt after they'd battled, acknowledging his strength. He, alongside 10 other Yo-kai, fell to Bruff's 'Cool big bro'-like charms. Roughraff got annoyed by continuous apologies from Bowminos. In the end, he befriends him because of how tough and how bad Bowminos is. He was initially annoyed by Oh Wheel's carelessness, but he drives him carefully at a high speed and the two of them become friends. He bumped into Blazion and fought him. They beat each other up in a draw match. Roughraff liked how tough Blazion was and became his friend.

Origin

Roughraff combines the stereotypical traits of Japanese delinquent youths, namely the flashy ducktail hairstyle, bare chest with a sarashi worn around the waist, and squatting position of someone hanging out in back alleys (called "yankee-zuwari" -ヤンキー座り- in Japanese), with the youkai called imori (written with the kanji for "gecko" but pronounced differently), geckos possessed by the souls of dead warriors that haunt castle ruins and will gang up on anyone coming through their territory.
