Whisper is one of the mascots of the Yo-kai Watch franchise. In the games, he often refers to himself as the player's "Yo-kai butler", offering them advice and assistance wherever necessary.
Despite talking in a polite and well-mannered demeanor, he has a slightly uptight personality and a short temper, leading him to come off sounding a tad arrogant. As the yokai Shittakaburi, he prides himself in knowing all there is to know about yokai yet often finds himself hastily checking through the Yokai Encyclopedia when confronted by one. He seems to enjoy lecturing those around him. Whisper's voice ranges from low tones to high tones, thus resulting in an odd and comical manner of speaking. He frequently says "Whis~" in the Japanese version of the anime. In the English dub, Whisper has a more curt personality, and has a frequent usage of biting sarcasm.

Yo-kai Medallium Bio:
Whisper is a cartoony, marshmallow-like white ghost with a black mask-like mark around his eyes. He has blue lips with an upper-lip vaguely resembling a mustache. He has a small whisp atop his head and a wispy tail that constantly billows.
- "Whisper" is the same as the English word whisper, which could be a play off of the term "ghost whisperer," a person who can communicate with spirits and the nonliving, or in this case Yokai. It could also be based on "wisp", the shape of his head comb and body, or the ghostly phenomenon "will-o'-the-wisp."
- "Shittakaburi" could be a portmanteau of "to know" (Japanese: 知る Shiru) in the perfective style, and "Fogged" (Japanese: カブ Kabu).
- While the English version of Whisper never says his Japanese verbal tic in the anime's English dub or the game, the tic still appears during the QR Code screen prompts on the Yo-kai Watch Official YouTube channel.
