Yo-kai Medallium Bio: Whereas most kappas stick to rivers, this one likes to surf...and pick up girls while he's at it.
Supyo is similar to Appak. The leaf that brims the bowl on his head is sky blue. It even has a yellow bead at the end. He wears navy-colored samurai pants. The necklace's teardrop bead is pink. He fights with a sword made of water.
- Supyo's name is a word play of the phrase "sup, yo?".
- "Namigappa" translates as "wave kappa"
- Based on his habitat, Supyo could be inspired by a kappa subspecies named garappa, which lives in the Kyushu region by the sea as opposed to its riverbound cousins. Compared to them, they are thinner and have abnormally long limbs, and emit a pungent smell. During the autumn season, they retire to the mountains and enjoy playing pranks on humans. Besides these distinctions, they are otherwise similar to kappa in appearance and habits.
