Matriarch of the Kiketsu Family
|Print Works|"I am the leader of the Kiketsu family. Do you really need any further explanation?" "Huh? What the...? Now that I think about it, I feel like I never had any questions..." — Yachie Kicchou and Reimu Hakurei (Wily Beast and Weakest Creature Stage 4.)
Yachie Kicchou (吉弔 八千慧 Kicchou Yachie) is the stage 4 boss of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature and the leader of the Kiketsu Family, one of the major organizations of beast spirits that dominate the Animal Realm of hell.
She first appeared as the midboss and boss of stage 4 of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature and is the leader of the otter spirits. Prior to the events of the game, she sent the beast spirits to the Human Realm to search for a human who could help against the haniwa army made by Keiki Haniyasushin.
Though polite and amiable on the surface, Yachie is a manipulative and condescending individual underneath. She is willing to use underhanded methods to succeed in her goal, including eliminating potential inconveniences if necessary.  She views human and animal spirits as resources and believes that cooperation is impossible in the animal realm and that competition is the way to make progress.

Her ability's true power is never directly mentioned. But when she confronts the heroines, she used her power to make the heroines unable to resist her orders, which was shown when the heroines agreed to everything she said even though they have no understanding of what was happening. 
Yachie is based on the Jidiao (吉弔), a Chinese Legendary creature said to have been seen in Guangzhou and Guangxi. The jidiao has the body of a tortoise with the head and tail of a dragon.
Yachie's full name is Yachie Kicchou (吉弔 八千慧 Kicchou Yachie). The first two characters in her name (八千 Yachi) mean eight thousand, and the third character (慧 e) means wise, which might refer to her manipulative nature.
Her surname "Kicchou" (吉弔) is taken directly from the Japanese pronunciation of "Jidiao". Those characters mean "good luck" and "funeral" respectively.
Yachie is depicted with red eyes and blonde short hair with yellow antler-like horns. She wears a light blue shirt and a turquoise pleated skirt. She has a green scaly shell on her back, the scales extend to her long tail with segmented underside.
Yachie finds the heroines and she tell them that the enemy they are searching for is not in hell, but if they defeat her she will tell them where it is. After being defeated, she tells them that their objective is in the Animal Realm and exactly in the core of it. Furthermore, she tells them that if they defeat the enemy, the invasion will end.
Yachie views Keiki as a competition and therefore a worthy opponent for the sake of progress. However, she also sees Keiki as an old enemy to get rid of in the struggle for resources (in this case, human spirits). That said, they are familiar enough to talk amicably with each other whilst in a confrontation 
It is unknown how Yachie thinks about Yuuma. However, considering that the Kiketsu Family and the Gouyoku Family formed an alliance during the events of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature, it is believed that their relationship is neutral, if not bad.
- Yachie appears on Wily Beast and Weakest Creature's jewel case, along with Keiki Haniyasushin and Saki Kurokoma.
- In Unconnected Marketeers' files, the background of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature's ending 10 is present, where Yachie appears. This is likely an error from ZUN, who maybe left it from WBaWC without realizing it.
