Prominent Yo-Kai

Jibanyan's Lightside form

30 years after the original series, Jibanyan returns with a brand new look. Now partnered with Nate's daughter Natsume, they work together to battle mischievous Yo-Kai.
  • Amnesiac Hero: Has no memories of the past.
    • Though episode 11 makes it appear that he regained at least part of his memory sometime before episode 3.
  • Art Evolution: Jibanyan's appearance changes from his original one especially in his Shadowside form.
  • Badass Baritone: Jibanyan's voice sounds incredibly deep compared to how he sounded in the original series.
  • Kid Hero All Grown-Up: Jibanyan is no longer the cute little kitten he used to be.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Starts out as this, initially refusing to join Natsume in the movie.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Jibanyan has drastically gained more power than he did in the original series. Especially in his Shadowside form he can practically defeat almost any Yo-Kai he encounters.
  • The Ace: Except for one battle Jibanyan has defeated all of the yokai he encounters.

Whisper's new appearance

30 years later. Whisper returns with a brand new look. Like Natsume's father Nate, he becomes her butler. As always he'll try his best to provide info about Yo-Kai.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: Whisper is considerably more competent than he was in the original series. He teaches Natsume about the new Yo-Kai watch and is well versed in the concept of Lightside and Shadowside forms.
    • Older than You Think: More competent like that, Whisper is now closer to his original portrayal in the very first game.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: While still a Butt-Monkey, episode 8 shows that if people aren't willing to cooperate, he allows them to see him so he can scare an answer out of them.
  • Butt-Monkey: Like in the orignal series, Whisper is prone to this.
  • Sudden Anatomy: Whisper used to just be a wisp-like ghost. Now he has ears and fingers.
  • Those Two Guys: With Micchy.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Out of all the reccuring Yo-kai, Whisper probably looks the least like how he used to.
    • Though him having hair and wearing clothes makes him resemble Nonuttin.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Or purple, in this case.
