Biology

Appearance

An ivy-green cat with dull pink nose. His inner-ear is dark yellow, while his muzzle, paw tips, and chest fur are white. He wears a white collar with a dark orange sphere, and around his stomach is a dull orange band. On his head are nine long spikes with white and emerald coloring nearing the tips. His tail flames are orange, yellow, and white and are also spiked. 

Personality

As Thornyan is Jibanyan with a cold, Thornyan can shoot spikes when sneezing; those spikes cause the targets that get hit by them to grow their own spikes and makes them catch a cold as well.

Profile

Yo-kai Watch

Fuse Jibanyan with Coughkoff.

Also, in Downtown Springdale, behind a fence, you can find Thornyan as a hot-spot. You can befriend him through normal means, but unless you soft reset, you only get one chance.

Yo-kai Watch 2

The player has to go to the apartments in Shopper's Row, where and Coughkoff and Roughraff are arguing over who is more spiky. To obtain Thornyan, the player has to speak to Coughkoff and say he's the spikier one. He will then fuse with Jibanyan to form into Thornyan, the fusion breaking apart after Thornyan gives the player their medal.

Receiving food (Favorite): "I loooove this!"

In the anime

In Every Cold Has Its Thorn(yan), Jibanyan catches a cold and transforms into Thornyan. After Nate and Whisper fail to cure his illness, he ends up getting Hidabat and Blazion sick.

Jibanyan catches another cold and becomes Thornyan again in Hapyon Detective Agency: Case No. 5: Assault of the Thorny Yo-kai, making him sneeze the thorns all over Springdale which leads to Hailey and Usapyon to find the culprit.

Etymology

  • His Japanese name, "Togenyan", is a combination of "Thorn" (Japanese: 棘/刺 Toge) and nyan. His English name, "Thornyan", is a portmanteau of thorn and nyan.
  • His German name, "Dornyan", is a combination of dorn (thorn) and nyan.
  • His Spanish name "Espinyan" is a combination of "Espinas" (Thorn) and Nyan.

Origin

As a rare non-Japanese origin instance, Thornyan might be based on the cactus cat from the American Southwest, a bobcat-like animal covered in needle-like hair and with a branching tail resembling a saguaro. It's said to roam through the desert at night and slash cacti open with the spikes on its paws, coming back the following nights to lap at the fermented juices.
