Etymology

  • "Tublappa" is a corruption of tub lapper.
  • "Chupatinas" is translated as "Suck Tubs".
  • "Sale de bain" is a portmanteau of "sale" (dirty) and "salle de bain" (bathroom)

Origin

Tublappa is based on the youkai named the akaname (Japanese: 垢嘗), or "filth licker". It appears as a small, oily humanoid monster with shaggy hair, red skin, single-toed feet and a long tongue. This creature is attracted by dirty bathrooms, and will sneak inside at night to lick every surface clean, only to bolt if someone comes in or turns the light on, much like a cockroach. Because of its foul habits, the akaname can spread diseases in its wake, thus people are advised to keep their bathrooms clean, especially the bathtub, lest they receive a visit from this rather uncouth youkai.

  • Receiving food (normal): "Kinda plain."
  • Receiving food (disliked): "Not a fan...at all."
  • Freed from Crank-a-kai: "Pleased to meet ya! Don't let my size fool ya... I've licked many an enemy!"
