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.

General Information[edit]


Yachie is quite polite, but also pretty manipulative, polite on the surface, and condescending underneath. She is also quite straightforword and uses underhanded means.


Making people lose the will to fight back

Her ability's true power is never directly mentioned. But when she confronts the heroines, she used her power to make the heroines not resist her. Which was shown when the heroines agree to everything she said even though they have no real idea what was happening.

Background Information[edit]

Prior to the events of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature, she sent the beast spirits to the Human Realm, to search for a human who could help.


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.

The name of her family, the Kiketsu (鬼傑), roughly translates to "devilish excellence".
