The Database of Fake and Generic Virtual Pets

There are a few fake Gyaoppis out there, mostly from Russia oddly enough. The second bunny rom is even worse than the normal one and is a clone of an 8-in-1 pet that also copies Gyaoppi, which features similar graphics to both aforementioned fakes... 

I knew that the 168-in-1 Bunny ROM has a lot of stolen graphics, but I didn't realise that this was the source of some of them. The instructions for the second Bunny ROM are sometimes provided with virtual pets running the other one, incidentally - my Cyber Pet 168 in 1 (as seen in the first post) came with them, and was full of references to meters that don't exist and things like the dancing "game" and rock/paper/scissors.

I've heard of the 8-in-1 pet, and almost picked one up on eBay some time ago but then never got around to it.

It's fascinating to learn more about both of these! I didn't know that anyone had cloned the Gyaoppi family. :P

No picture, but how about the Q-pet?  The fake TMGC + Color.

Just a question- I’ve heard of both the Qpet and the Qpet Qolor, but are they the same pet, just under a different name?

As far as I know, "Qpet" was used as a brand for a set of (I think) three generic virtual pets, before the Qpet Qolor existed. It used the same logo, and I presume came from the same manufacturer.

I think these would be a good adition to the database-

Resultado de imagem para bichinho virtual transparente

Name: Rakuraku Dinokun
Type: Fake
Notes: Has the infamous 'Bunny ROM' and it's very common in physical stores. Basically if you go to a random market you'll see these. It has 5 buttons and transparent shell. It is currently available in 4 colors(?). It's a fake to Rakuraku Dinokun/Dinkie Dino.

8-1? Is that an earlier version of the 168-in 1 or just a cheaper less packed virtual pet? Personally never heard of that one! 😮

It’s quite a coincidence- a fake stealing from a fake? 

Once I was messing about on my sisters Digi Pet (That she got from Poundland) scrolling through the sprites to choose from. My best friend was there, and took the device from her hands and started rapidly pressing the “Scroll” button. She landed on a mutant-Kutchipatchi creature, making us crack up. Seriosly, it’s quite hilarious what some companies actually put into there VPets.

It's a very old one, from back in the days of the original Tamagotchi.
