Yo-kai Medallium biography
"A neat-freak shogun who has been known to make heads roll if an underling so much as smudges his helmet."
Washogun ( is a Japanese: アライ魔将 ) Arai Mashō Rank B Ice-attribute Yo-kai of the Brave tribe.
Washogun can evolve from a
Brushido starting at level 19, and level 24 in
Yo-kai Watch Blasters
Washogun resembles that of a Japanese shogun except his armor is completely white and instead of a sword, he wields a bottle of germ cleaner.
Washogun has a fanatical dedication to cleanliness, declaring that settling for a mere appearance of "looking kinda clean" is unacceptable. He adopts many mannerisms of a feudal warlord.
His mission is to clean every house in Japan.
Washogun leads a personal army of Brushido foot soldiers, who clean under his supervision.
Evolve a Brushido at Level 19.
Yo-kai Watch Animation Series
Washogun first appears in
EP050 where he leads an army of Brushido into Nate's house, having been drawn to his desire to clean the house so he can bargain for a bigger allowance from his parents. Having declared war on filth, Washogun leads the Brushido into making every room spotless. However, the Brushido's work is quickly undone by the presence of the Messyrai, filth-dedicated counterparts to the Brushido. Washogun determines that the Messyrai are being led by a tactical genius of filth, who turns out to be Jibanyan being a slob. Under Nate's order, Washogun and the Brushido meet the Messyrai in an unseen battle that ends with Jibanyan being thrown through the roof.
