Yo-kai Medallium Bio: He rejects everything with a "no way!" Becoming a brain-surgeon astronaut is easier than getting past him.
Noway resembles a cream-colored Wall with a blue-colored roof and a diamond-patterned base. He has yellowish-colored arms and legs, diminutive eyes and a odd-shaped mouth, both with orange lining. He wears sandals.
- "Noway" is a contraction of the phrase no way!
- "Murikabe" is a pun/portmanteau of muri (無理, "impossible", or "no way!"/"can't do it!" when used as an exclamation), and nurikabe.
- Noway is based on the nurikabe (Japanese: 塗壁, nurikabe lit. "plastered wall"), a wall-shaped youkai that renders itself invisible and impedes travelers on the road by blocking it with its tall, wide body. Going around it or trying to push it down is useless, as he's immovable and can extend his body as much as he wants. The only way to make it disappear it to tap the ground at his feet with one's walking stick.
- "Nurikabe" is also the name of a logic puzzle where the player has to figure out the number of white spaces in a grid by using the numbers written on it, and darken the "invisible walls" around them with a pencil.
