Fanfic / Yokai Watch Re!

Go To

Yokai Watch Re by Feenie13 is a Yo-Kai Watch fanfic that adapts the series' story with Katie as the protagonist. It's inspired by the game's plot but isn't a 1-to-1 adaptation.

Katie Forester is an ordinary girl until one day, while out bug-catching with her friends, she finds a mysterious capsule machine near a shrine. When she buys a capsule, a yokai named Whisper appears. He gives her a special Yokai Watch that allows her to interact with yokai. That is the start of Katie's adventure.


Yokai Watch Re! provides examples of:

  • Adult Fear: Katie's mother hears Katie screaming in her room because Slitheref is attacking her. She uses Katie's watch to help her daughter, but the entire situation scares her more than it does Katie.
  • Alternate Universe Fic: There are some differences from game canon, such as Katie telling her friends about yokai after meeting Whisper.
  • Apologizes Alot: Upon waking Whisper, Katie is more apologetic than frightened.
  • Body Horror: There's some body horror when a yokai makes artificial yokai out of living humans.
  • Dark Fic: Downplayed. It's nothing too dark but it's more serious and similar in tone to Shadowside than the original anime.
  • Death by Adaptation:
    • Lord Enma has been dead for 11 years and has been replaced with McKraken.
    • Both of Katie's grandparents are dead. In the games, only your grandfather is deceased.

  • Happily Adopted: Nate knows he's adopted and is perfectly content with his adopted family.
  • Kid Hero: Eleven year old Katie is likely the only one who can stop McKraken. Being a hero turns out to more dangerous than she had thought.
  • Last-Name Basis: Whisper refers to Katie as "Ms. Forester".
  • Odd Name Out: Nate is named after a human and has an odd name compared to his sisters Salacia, Soleil, and the others.
  • Oh My Gods!: "What in the Inferno's name (....)" gets used by Maddiman.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: Katie is an ordinary 11-year old elementary schooler until she meets Whisper and is granted a Yokai Watch.
  • Patchwork Fic: Yokai Watch Re is game-based with some anime elements sprinkled about, as well as the usage of the Fictional Currency from Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Nate is Lord Enma's son.

  • Secret Keeper: Eddie, Bear, and Nate are three of the only humans besides Katie who know about yokai. However, Katie's mother also knows about yokai thanks to her father Kenny.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Whisper unintentionally quotes Genie from Aladdin upon waking up. In the same chapter, Katie references this with "I'm surprised you didn't start singing about how I've never have a friend like you, to be honest.", but Whisper doesn't understand the reference.
    • Eddie and Nate get into an argument over Super Bash Sisters Rumble (Super Smash Bros. Brawl) in chapter 3.
