Watermelnyan (Japanese: スイカニャン Suikanyan) is a Rare, Rank A, Wind-attribute Yo-kai of the Charming tribe.

He is one of the Yo-kai required to unseal Shogunyan in Yo-kai Sangokushi.



Watermelnyan is a rich green Yo-kai with lines of dark green all over its body. Its muzzle and paw tips are red, with a black nose and eyes that have two seed marks below each one. Its inner-ear is light orange, and a curly vine of a watermelon sticks out from the top of its head. The chest fur is red with a single line of pale pink on the outside and five black seed marks. A light orange sphere is attached to its collar. The band around its stomach is yellow and pale yellow with five black seed marks. The flames on each tail are dull gold.

Watermelnyan makes people want to smash watermelons but if you smash his head he'll curse you and your head will become a watermelon. But he can regrow his head.
