Biology

Shogunyan is a dull-blue cat with a white face and big, black eyes. He has a tiny, dull, pink nose and gold inner-ear coloring with white-tipped paws. He wears a turquoise samurai helmet on his head with a big, gold crescent moon on the center and accenting of gold and a matching samurai armour suit, an orange sphere attached to a collar, and an orange rope that holds his sword. His tail flames are gold. 

Unlike Jibanyan, Shogunyan is dignified but also a bit rash. He speaks in a rather formal manner, taking his status as a samurai very seriously and lashes out at others who disrespect him. He also is obsessed with slicing objects, to the point of naming his many slicing techniques.

Shogunyan attacks enemies with his sword.

In the anime

Main article: Shogunyan (anime)

In the manga

He debuts in The Ancestor's Wish, as a ghost where he waited for his descendant Jibanyan to eat Kabutobushi, where he ends up possessing Jibanyan to cut Noway, ends up eating his favorite food, and befriends Nate.

He makes a cameo in Who can you Trust?!, where Jibanyan tells Suspicioni that Nate has a lot of friends.

In An Excitable American Yo-kai!!, he is invoked by Nate, to fight against Apelican but it is useless since he as a ghost is intagible, then he possessed Jibanyan but he was "Americanized" in a Santa Claus outfit and then defeated Apelican.

In The Wandering Yo-kai Has Appeared!, he is invoked by Nate to fight Venoct to save Whisper, where he possesses Jetnyan to defeat Venoct.

In CP095, he is invoked by Nate to fight against Slicenrice to save Suspicioni.

Also in CP097, he is summoned by Nate to fight Kyubi where he owns Jibanyan but he cannot move so he owns Whisper but he is defeated by Kyubi, as a trick he owns Katie to beat Kyubi.

In CP108, in chapter 108, we are told that together The Last Nyanmurai defeated 30,000, He would then be summoned by Nate to reunite with his old friend, Directly in chapter 109, he sees how his friend confronts Horizontail.

Etymology

"Shogunyan" is a portmanteau of shogun and nyan, the Japanese onomatopoeia for a cat's meow.

His Japanese name "Bushinyan" is similar, but instead combines with bushi (Japanese: 武士 "samurai, warrior"). The latter might also be a wordplay on katsuobushi (Japanese: 鰹節 "bonito flakes").

Trivia

A picture of the assembled Shogunyan model kit, showing his unique topknot hairstyle.

  • In the Yo-kai Watch video game, the Medallium description explicitly states that Shogunyan is another form of Jibanyan which was changed in Yo-kai Watch 2. Ironically, it would end up being made into a joke in the Yo-kai Watch anime series.
  • Shogunyan is and Gilgaros are the only two Legendary Yo-kai that can be befriended before completing the main story in the Yo-kai Watch video game.
  • Shogunyan is the only Legendary Yo-kai that is seen fusing with another, in the Yo-kai Watch anime series.
  • Shogunyan's official plastic model kit contains a headpiece that reveals a topknot hairstyle hidden under his helmet. This makes it the first and currently only piece of merchandise to include such detail.
  • In the manga, Shogunyan is the only Yo-kai ever that is also a ghost. He can only possess Jibanyan's body to materialize, but as of Kyubi's chapter can possess others too.
  • Shogunyan's "random" nicknames in Yo-kai Watch 2 are: Samewrai, Kazu, Can Cat and Mewnoke.
  • In English, Shogunyan is voiced by Alicyn Packard.
