Ma-kun is an advanced Artificial Intelligence created by Yayoi Kobe and a team of researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Contained within a Tamagotchi unit, Ma-kun is usually found hanging around Yayoi's neck. He assists the energetic teen in various ventures as a friend and guide.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit

Contained within a Tamagotchi unit, Ma-kun has an independant power source to sustain himself. In contrast to the A.I. girls who require the Spartacus 5568 to sustain themselves.
When in Cyberspace, Ma-kun's avatar is that of an adult male with long hair and a trench coat. As part of a series of "Offensive Maneuvers", Ma-kun possesses a gun powerful enough to harm advanced viruses like Spider Zero.

Ma-kun has a very calm, cool and collected personality. It is indirectly implied that Toeni and he continue on to have a relationship after the conclusion of the series as she is seen wearing him around her neck in the final chapter, and in the epilogue.
