Shaman King Wiki

Ponchi (ポンチ Ponchi) and Conchi (コンチ Konchi) are the Guardian Ghosts of Tamamura Tamao.


Ponchi is a tanuki with large testicles and Conchi is a kitsune. They are 400-year-old spirits who are unable to evolve into Seirei Class spirits because of their large egos. Until they met Matamune, they did not wear anything to cover up their oversized testicles; however, after getting beat up they both started wearing mawashis. Both of them act like crappy old geezers who constantly forget their place as house spirits. They are, however, immensely afraid of Anna due to her intimidating attitude and how she can actually physically hurt them.[1]

Ponchi and Conchi Funbari no Uta

Both of them are very perverted, threatening to strip in front of others or urinate on an opponent while holding them with Ponchi's oversized testicles. They appear to be constantly solid and can conceal themselves as statues. Several years after the Shaman Fight the two finally lost most of their ego though they retain some of their it and are now acting like normal ghosts. They have evolved somewhat and wear traditional Japanese kimonos. Conchi has grown long black hair and Ponchi smokes a pipe.[2]

Even if they are a nuisance to everyone, they have not been sealed yet because they can be pretty useful too. Spying is their specialty and they are often used for reconnaissance. They are able to perform simple, though not very reliable, divination, cast easy curses, and harass the enemy as well.[3]

Oversouls and Attacks[]

O.S. Cupid[]

O.S. Cupid

O.S. "Cupid" (O.S. キューピッドさん Kyūpiddo-san)

Description: Tamao integrates Conchi, her fox spirit, with her planchette. Once integrated, Conchi transforms the heart-shaped planchette into a bow and arrow, with the ability to guide the Conchi arrow wherever the shaman's heart desires.[1]


  • Love Strike (ラブ・ストライク Rabu Sutoraiku):[4] Tamao shoots an arrow through her opponent.[5]

O.S. Angel[]

O.S. Angel

O.S. "Angel" (O.S. エンジェルさん Enjeru-san)

Description: Tamao's second Over Soul is created by integrating Ponchi, her tanuki spirit, with her planchette. By holding the back of the planchette, she creates a large heart-shaped shield, sprouting the legs of Ponchi at the top of the heart.[5]


  • Tan-Tan-Tanuki's Thousand Tatami Mats (たんたんたぬきの千畳敷 Tantan Tanuki no Senjōsū): This is a defensive move with offensive capabilities. By expanding his scrotum from the top of the heart, the Over Soul can envelop an opponent, cutting off any means of escape.[4] The over-sized testicles can also be used to protect Tamao from a huge drop.

Anime/Manga Difference[]

In the 2001 anime series, they sometimes act like children when hurt, running to Tamao for a mother's comfort. In the English versions of the manga, Ponchi's large testicles are redrawn and referred to as a large belly. The testicles remained intact in the English version of the 2021 anime.


  • "Cupid" (キューピッド Kyūpiddo) is another name for the Kokkuri board, which uses a planchette because people tend to ask questions, particularly about love.
  • On the colored front page of the first chapter of Shaman King, Conchi was depicted to be with a rather feminine appearance with larger eyelids and eyelashes.
  • Ponchi and Conchi are based on Stimpy and Ren (respectively) from the 1990s Nickelodeon cartoon The Ren & Stimpy Show.[6]
  • Their names contain Japanese onomatopoeia associated with their animal species: Pon is the sound of a tanuki drumming on its belly, while kon is the sound of a fox barking.
