Regarding my original post, it has to be turned counter clockwise.
Omochao can be bought in the black market after you earn a certain amount of emblems. Back in the Gamecube version, to obtain Maria's theme, you had to have all 180 emblems, collect 300,000 rings, and trade a chao from the GBA to the Gamecube. After doing all of this in succession, her theme would be available in the black market for 30k rings. I dunno if we can even get it on the new ports to be honest. :/
