Aiton guarding the tower

Aiton is the friendly companion of the Zigoton soldier Makoton, and is encountered only in the mission "Desert Crossing", in the first Patapon game. Aiton is referenced throughout Patapon and Patapon 2 by both Makoton (as himself, Scorpiton, and the Dark One) and by Meden (once in the second Patapon game). This character and Makoton were two soldiers stationed in a desert outpost, when the Patapon army was spotted on the horizon. Aiton told Makoton to report this to General Gong, but he refused, defending his companion until the tower was destroyed, and Aiton was killed. Makoton fled and escaped the Patapons, appearing in later levels with a seething hatred towards them for killing his companion.

As the soulless Makoton, Scorpiton, is dying, he screams for his soul, and his last words are that he was afraid that he'd never see Aiton again.

In Patapon 2, this character is mentioned again, after killing Makoton as the Akumapon Dark One, Meden talks about the story of Aiton and Makoton, and you receive a TIP on the subject.


  • Despite being referred to as a man by Makoton throughout the first Patapon game, Aiton is made out to be a woman during the conversation between Meden and her assistant.
  • In Patapon 3 during a conversation between Silver Hoshipon (after the mission Ravenous: Duel of Fate) it is said that Madfang Ragewolf lost a loved one to the Patapons, similarly to how Makoton lost Aiton.
  • Aiton's name has the Japanese word for "love" (愛 "Ai"), and the last syllable of zigoton at the end.
