Anime series


Steppa is a seaweed Yo-kai similar to Wiglin, except that he is dark-green skinned and wears a mustard-colored haori with the eye patterns in black, and light yellow pants and a light yellow bow.

Steppa, like his friends, is an energetic and cheerful Yo-kai. He loves dancing and enjoys it. In tone with this, he says "Yeah!" every time he can dance

In the anime, Wiglin, Steppa and Rhyth are seen together, being collectively known as the 'Yo-kai Dancers'

In Yo-kai Watch 2: Shin'uchi, Wiglin is the center of a side quest involving all three of them.

Steppa makes people dance very well, along with the other two members of the 'Dancing Trio', Rhyth and Wiglin.

In the anime

Steppa debuts in EP013 along with Wiglin and Rhyth, in which they cause Nate to be able to dance when previously was not able to. While initially grateful, Nate quickly curses this new ability when it takes him to the extreme by causing him to dance even in inappropriate situations. Some time after this, the Yo-kai Dancers give Nate their Yo-kai Medals.

In EP024, Nate summons Wiglin, Steppa, and Rhyth to make Tengloom smile. However, this plan backfires and all of them fall rolling down to a three, which ironically makes Tengloom smiles.

In EP027, Steppa, Wiglin, and Rhyth are seen in Yo-kai-lifornia where they are among the Yo-kai waiting in line for the release of the Yo-kai Watch Model Zero.
