There's lots of Tamas in existence, so a few would happen to resemble a real life animal or inanimate objects. For example, Mimitchi is modeled after a rabbit. Let's take that a step further. I believe the inspiration for Mimitchi was based on a Himalayan Dwarf Rabbit.

Out of pure coincidence, I happen to own a Himalayan Dwarf. Her name is Luna. I think Mimitchi and Luna could be sisters. Don't you think? :mimitchi: :mimitchi: :mimitchi:

So if anyone else can think of other similarities between other Tamagotchi's and real life animals/objects, I'd like to hear them. Some are pretty obvious, maybe we can find some unpopular or obscure ones instead? This should be fun. :mimitchi:

Well, there are the rather obvious ones.
Kaubotchi, a toddler on the iD-L, has a big cowboy hat. And his name sounds like cowboy-tchi.
And Pinaputchi, a teen on the iD-l has a pineapple on her head, and her name sorta sounds like pineapple-tchi.
Woolitchi, DUH a sheep.
Nyatchi, a cat. (Like Nyan cat?)
Androtchi, a robot.

But for the obscure ones...
Hanatchi kina looks like a worm...
And I think Tenpatchi looks like an octopus. He is one of my favorite V4.5 characters. So cute!

Awww! He does, doesn't he? I love hamsters! They're so cute. I used to have a peachy cream colored teddy bear. I guess he'd be a light colored Mametchi. :mametchi: :newmametchi:

Well, I used to think Kuishinbotchi looked like a bee but now that I think about it he also resembles a ribbon seal! Look for that on Google images, they're awesome!
