- Yo-kai Watch: Main game series:
- Yo-kai Watch animation: Recurring Yo-kai.
A golden-yellow cat with large blue feminine eyes. Her inner-ears are indigo, while her muzzle and paw tips are pale yellow with tiny dark pink blushed cheeks and nose. On each tail is a aquamarine flame to match the paw print at the tip of her small brown staff. She wears a red and black dress with a matching witch hat. At her neck is a pale indigo bow.
In the anime, Maginyan doesn't have any magic power. Instead, it comes from her battery-powered wand (and the non-rechargeable ones on top of that) and as such, it can runs out of battery power, such as when Maginyan tries to revive the flowers with her wand. This wand can be overpowered though, as it can shoots a powerful 'Magic Cat Fi-nya' flame magic that can blows a hole in a mountain while having a pair of brand-new batteries. During the scene where Maginyan stops a snatch theft while her wand's batteries has runs out, she temporarily turns into the Rubeus J-like form.
Yo-kai Watch animation series
Maginyan first appeared in New Yo-kai Miniseries Meeting: Witch Girl Nyanmajo, featured as a character in a idea for a new miniseries provided by Hailey during the meeting between the producers. In the plot show, it follows the misadventure of Maginyan and her partner Namekichi (a mascot character) as they tries to help people with magic. Despite the premise of 'Helping people with magic', Maginyan doesn't have the good chance to show her 'magic' due to various situations, such as requests that doesn't require her 'magic' and her wand's batteries runs out when tries to revive the flowers with it. The plot show ended in Maginyan accidentally blows a hole in a mountain with her Magic Cat Fi-nya attack while stopping a bank robbery.
