Yo-kai Watch Blasters, or simply Blasters, is a new minigame in Yo-kai Watch 2 that expands on the Terror Time feature of the first game. Terror Time in Yo-kai Watch 2 now functions similar to Blasters as well. The main difference is that instead of being a human, the player can play as any Yo-kai that they have befriended, in a team of up to four players. Each Yo-kai plays a pre-determined role, and there are four roles in total. The player can play Blasters at any time from the Blasters app in their Yo-kai Pad. Each round takes place in a random location from the Yo-kai Watch 2 overworld, where Oni Orbs, items and enemies spawn upon the round beginning. The goal is to collect as many Oni Orbs as possible, while avoiding the patrolling Eye Yo-kai. The best source of Oni Orbs comes from defeating the Oni that spawn on every red clock tick. Players can make use of items to avoid the patrols and to help defeat the Oni. When the last player left standing escapes through the exit door, the total Oni Orbs gathered are complied for a chance the spin the Oni Crank-a-Kai. More Oni Orbs gives the player a better chance to get rare items and Yo-kai.Washogun appears who will drop one if defeated (he cannot be befriended in this encounter). This can be repeated as many times as the player wishes by sleeping in-game.
The Blasters app is unlocked in the Yo-kai Pad after they first experience Terror Time in Yo-kai Watch 2.
This gamemode eventually became the spin-off series Yo-kai Watch Blasters in Japan and America.
Blasters is not playable online. Blasters must be played solo or with another console(s) locally.
Each Yo-kai has a pre-determined Role assigned to it for Blasters. The four roles are: Fighter, Tank, Healer, and Ranger. As well as this, each Yo-kai has different stats and two moves for playing Blasters: a basic attack with the A button and a special attack by pressing or holding the X button. These stats and moves may not necessarily reflect it's actual stats, moves or attributes. HP in Blasters increases with Level, but whether or not any other stats do is harder to measure.

The main goal of Blasters is to defeat the Oni and earn more Oni Orbs than players may normally. There are three Oni that may spawn during a round of Blasters: Gargaros, Ogralus and Orcanos. Each one is stronger than the last, so powerful Yo-kai and a good strategy is essential to taking them down. Each Oni has slightly different behavior, and may be weak to certain elemental attacks. One Oni will spawn when the round begins, and two more can spawn over the rest of the round, for a chance to defeat 3 Oni each round. Defeating an Oni will drop an Oni Orb worth 50, 100, or 200 orbs, depending on the Oni. The player can earn a Bronze trophy each time the player defeats each Oni for the first time, and a Silver trophy each time the player defeats each Oni 50 times. Collecting 600 Oni Orbs will also earn the player a Silver trophy.
Any prize can be received from any course with any amount of orbs, though higher courses and orbs may have a higher chance for rare prizes.
Other Yo-kai that can be cranked are:
- Lie-in Heart
- Lava Lord
