Video games

Anime series


A little humanoid Yo-kai who had a sandy body and is much shorter than Nate. His body is gold-ish brown and he has black eyes with light blue pupils.

A version of Sandmeh can occasionally be found in Yokai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls which has orange pupils instead of blue. This version of Sandmeh has the skill Carefree Spirit.

Alternately colored Sandmeh. Side fleshy souls.

Sandmeh is polite and very easy to approach, usually going with the flow and agrees a lot to everything. He seems to be drawn to individuals who try to hide their true feelings and, contrary to the effects of his Inspiriting, he becomes concerned when this happens. Sandmeh tends to enjoy people with pleasant dispositions.

He makes the Inspirited person a polite, meek sort who will never say no or disagree with others.

In the anime, Sandmeh has the ability to enter a person's mind, portrayed as an endless hallway of doors, through which Sandmeh can peek into that person's life experiences and feelings. Feelings that a person is trying to hide manifest in the form of locked doors, and he is capable of bringing others into this hallway.

In the anime

Sandmeh debuts in Yo-kai Sandmeh, having Inspirited Eddie on his birthday, causing him to say "Whatever" to anything asked of him. Nate summons Komasan to chat with Sandmeh as both Yo-kai are considered polite. Sandmeh explains that during the previous day, Eddie was informed by his parents that they would be unable to celebrate his birthday together due to work. Not wishing to impose, Eddie shrugged off his disappointment, which drew Sandmeh to him. Sandmeh adds that he's spent time in Eddie's mind, enjoying his pleasant feelings and life experiences, but one aspect remains inaccessible to him, troubling Sandmeh.

At Nate's request, Sandmeh brings everyone into Eddie's mind, discovering that Eddie has been repressing his desires to be with his parents. Nate convinces Eddie to tell his parents how he really feels.

He is summoned in EP128 where he helps out with tackling Demandi's dares.


  • "Sunao" is written as sand husband (Japanese: 砂夫), but is a pun on sunao (Japanese: 素直 "meek, compliant").
  • "Sandmeh" combines "sandman" and "meh", the sound that people make when they are indifferent to something.
  • In French, "Félipaix" comes from "Félix" (a French name) and "paix" (peace)
  • In Spanish, "Arenito" combines "Arena" (Sand) and the diminutive of "Calmado; calmadito" (calmed down).
