Characters Introduced in Puyo Puyo Fever series
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2Voiced by: Takumi YamazakiPlease stop calling me "old man". It makes me feel my age.
A kind demon in the form of a blue teddy bear, and curator of Primp Town's museum. He's one of the wiser residents of Primp Town, but is known for his violent vocal changes.
- The Cameo: Child Feli holds an Akuma-shaped teddy bear.
- Creepy Doll: Or in this case, teddy bear.
- Friendly Neighborhood Vampire
- High-Class Glass
- Hidden Depths: To Suketoudara's surprise, he used to breakdance when he was younger!
- Leitmotif: Precise Museum.
- Our Demons Are Different: He has very good intentions, wishing that no demon would be able to enter the town (He's already a resident to begin with, so he's unaffected).
- Punny Name: A mix between "aku" (evil), and "kuma" (bear). Putting both together also makes the word for "demon".
- Really 700 Years Old
- Verbal Tic: Kuma
- Vocal Dissonance: One moment it's his normal, low register, the next he's SHRIEKING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS!
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Shiho Kikuchi (Japanese), Evelyn Huynh (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Christine Marie Cabanos (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)Stage Actor: Rihona KatoLet's play Puyo!
The protagonist of the Fever series, Amitie is nice, but a bit ditzy. Her heart is in the right place, and though she's better at reacting to things than Raffina or Sig, she still ends up jumping to wrong conclusions.
- Aborted Declaration of Love: In Puyo Puyo Tetris, she attempts to tell the memory Sig something, but she decides not to, since this Sig is just a memory to help her get stronger to reach the end of the dimensions with everyone else and she'd rather tell the real Sig whatever she wanted to say, which is implied to be this.
- Action Girl: While not as competent as Arle, she still goes the distance to set things right.
- Asleep in Class / Good Morning, Amitie: Her story in 20th begins like this.
- Big "WHAT?!": Her response to Ringo telling her about Maguro's "Beauty Beam".
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The blonde to the "A" Trio.
- Catch-Phrase: "Get real!"
- Cloudcuckoolander: Her mind certainly flows differently.
- Covert Pervert: She gets very excited when she thinks Ringo is going to show Maguro his... You know whats...
- Dumb Blonde / Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Manages to fit both; she can be sillier and slower-witted than Arle or Ringo, but is much more sweeter.
- Easy Amnesia: Happened to her in 7. Ringo just had to lampshade it.
- Canon Discontinuity: In the light novel Amitie and the Girl of Love she doesn't know what amnesia is, and comments on how she'd feel if she forgot her friends.
- Expressive Accessory: Her Red Puyo Hat.
- Expy: Of Arle; the main difference between them though is that, while Arle was The Comically Serious, Amitie isn't. Notably, Sega flirted with the idea of some Divergent Character Evolution (see Spell Theme below), only to turn around and give Arle's signature Bayoeen spell to Amitie.
- First-Person Perspective: The Puyo Light Novels are told entirely from her perspective.
- Genius Ditz: To be frank, Amitie's not too bright in school. She is, however, very passionate in her Puyo matches.
- Genki Girl
- Good Is Dumb: She really means well, but is very, very scatterbrained at times.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck! : More so than everyone else.
- Informed Flaw: As told in Fever 2 and mentioned by herself in the light novel Amitie and the Mysterious Egg, she's not too fond of mushrooms.
- In-Series Nickname: Lidelle calls her "Ami-san".
- Japanese Politeness: Backfires when she perfunctorily says that she doesn't want the reward and Ms. Accord takes it literally.
- Leitmotif: Fairy Fair in 15th, and "Her Dream Is To Be a Fantastic Sorceress" in 20th.
- Magic Staff: Red Amitie wields one.
- Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane
- Meaningful Name: "Friendship" in Latin; she's possibly one of the friendliest characters in Fever.
- Nice Girl: The word "hate" doesn't seem to exist in her vocabulary. She doesn't even bring herself to dislike the resident assholes, no matter how much they rip into her.
- Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The nice one with Sig and Klug.
- Parasol of Prettiness: Carries one as Stylish Amitie in Puyo Quest
- Power Gives You Wings: As she evolves in Puyo Quest, she gets decorated with wings as displayed in her Silver◊ and her Gold◊ forms.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The energy to Sig's savviness.
- Significant Birth Date: May 5, Children's Day.
- Spell Theme: Shares the Fire/Ice/Lightning theme with Arle, through Flame, Blizzard, Lightning Bolt. Fairy Fair, a Pillar of Light attack, mirrors Arle's Heaven Ray. Subverted when Blizzard is replaced with Blast Beat in 15th Anniversary, and then Cyclone Whirl in 20th Anniversary.
- Squee!: Has one moment when she drops in on Ringo and Maguro talking about the "you-know-whats". She shortly becomes disappointed when she finds out what the "you-know-whats" are, though.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Raffina's Girly Girl, thought not that much.
- Totally Radical: Some of her dialogue in the Engish version.
- Utility Party Member: In Quest, Red Amitie, having the exact same skills as Black Sig, makes multiple colour decks viable thanks to her HP and Attack boosting Leader Skills and powerful Attack boosting active skill (Which stacks with her Leader Skill), making her teammates very powerful and difficult to take down.
- V-Sign: Her Victory Pose of choice.
- You Shall Not Pass: To Schezo in chapter 9 of Puyo Tetris, the second DLC chapter. She tries to protect Sig, but her attempt backfires spectacularly when she loses and accidentally tells Schezo where Sig went.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A as Sweet Amitie in Puyo Quest, starting from Silver rarity.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2Voiced by: Hisayoshi SuganumaWoof!
A Hellhound wearing armor that Feli accidentally summoned at one point. He's very protective of Feli and follows all of her commands, but doesn't seem to like Lemres.
- Big, Friendly Dog: He towers over Amitie!
- Evil-Detecting Dog: Possibly.
- Gentle Giant
- Good Lips, Evil Jaws: He looks like he could tear your head off, but he's just a big sweetie.
- Guardian Entity: For Feli.
- Hellhound: Wings, claws, red fur, razor-sharp teeth...
- Intelligible Unintelligible: Sometimes.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: He may not like Lemres that much, but he still wants Feli to be happy.
- Leitmotif: "Military Watchdog! Baldanders".
- Meaningful Name: A Baldanders is a German shape-shifting creature with the upper body of a human, the legs of a goat (or a leg of a goat and one of a bird), has bird wings, and has a fish tail. May be subverted since we don't know if Baldanders is a shape-shifter.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Even if Feli ignores him, Baldanders is still loyal to her.
- They Have the Scent!: Or, at least, Amitie wishes he did.
- The Faceless
- What Happened to the Dog?: The last we hear him was in 15th Anniversary.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Naomi Wakabayashi (Japanese), Ali Johnston (English, Puyo Pop Fever)Ribbit ribbit!
A round frog that rolls around in an acorn top. He has some sort of connection to Amitie, and is often seen singing.
- Animal Talk: Frogs and onions can somehow communicate. There's even a whole scene dedicated to him and Onion Pixie here.
- Blush Sticker
- Bouncing Battler: As depicted in his attack animations.
- Bullet Seed: With acorns instead of seeds.
- Demoted to Extra: In Puyo Tetris, along with Onion Pixie. Only appears to make Schezo Squee!.
- Expy: Of Nohoho.
- Luck-Based Mission: ...to the point of using the exact same AI.
- Floating in a Bubble: His counter animation makes him form a bubble barrier.
- Leitmotif: Has "Ribbit Ribbit" for 15th.
- ...and for some reason the title is unchanged, even if it was given an entirely new theme.
- Punny Name: His name translates to "acorn frog" which is at the same time a pun on the word "dengurigaeri" (forward roll).
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: Schezo finds him cute enough to take home!
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2Voiced by: Yukie Maeda (Japanese), Erin Fitzgerald (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)You there... you're thinking of a bad thing... aren't you?
Feli is Lemres' underclass woman, dressed like a gothic lolita, and she is absolutely smitten with him. She's skilled in divination, very intimidating, but shows her sweet side to Lemres.
- Berserk Button: Don't mention you want to become like Lemres or better than him. Klug's a frequent offender of this.
- Blush Sticker
- Brainwashed and Crazy: The merging of the Puyo and Tetris worlds ends up mind-controlling her in Tetris. Her case is significantly more Played With than with Raffina and Rulue, as that mind control makes the person state very ominous messages to everyone else... except Feli is known for doing that the whole time. Ringo has a hard time realizing whether she was acting oddly or not, and it takes Lemres to confirm she was back to normal.
- Cannot Spit It Out: She tried to ask Lemres out on a date, but unfortunately asked for a Delicious Puyo Match instead. Oops.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Towards Lemres, bordering on Yandere at times.
- Chocolate of Romance: As Lovestruck Feli, holding a heart-shaped chocolate box as part of a Valentine's Day-themed event in Puyo Quest. No points guessing on who she's giving it to.
- Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Subverted. Though she follows Lemres around, she never actually gets involved with anything he does.
- Dark Is Not Evil: She is in the side of good (Or rather, Lemres's) but this does not stop other characters from finding her unsettling.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita
- The Fatalist: She's completely convinced it's her destiny to get with Lemres. He, naturally, disagrees. On the other hand, Feli has the power to foresee the future and, according to Lemres, change fate.
- The Jail Bait Wait: Inverted, minus the sexual content. She wants her age to catch up with Lemres' (due to her wish in 15th) so she can have a proper relationship with him.
- Kid with the Leash: Subverted; she has a huge hellhound at her disposal, but doesn't do anything with him at all.
- Leitmotif: "The Name for Thinking by the Window is..." for 15th.
- 20th gives her "Hidden Feelings".
- Licked by the Dog: Baldanders cares a lot about her.
- May–December Romance: With Lemres.
- Meaningful Name: Felix means "lucky".
- Meido: Her adult form in 7 has strong shades of this.
- My New Gift Is Lame: Acts this way towards Baldanders.
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Klug, Amitie and especially Ringo find her attitude creepy.
- Not So Stoic: Goes ballistic in 15th when Klug says he'll "become like Lemres". Of course, the moment's played for laughs, with Klug not helping.
- Palm-on-Cheek Pose: When she takes major damage in Puyo Tetris.
- Power Gives You Wings: She sports a pair of purely decorative angel wings as White Feli.◊
- Good Wings, Evil Wings: White Feli has an AI Level of 9 compared to her original Level 3.
- Proper Tights with a Skirt: Feli wears a skirt with white tights.
- Purple Is the New Black: Her hair color can be read like this.
- Sempai/Kohai: Junior to Lemres. She even refers him as "senpai".
- Stalker With a Crush: To Lemres.
- Stealth Pun: Feli has a red ribbon tied around her head.
- Sugar and Ice Personality: Normally cold to most people, but sweet to Lemres. She has Irrational Hatred towards Klug instead of ice though.
- Violently Protective Girlfriend: Well, not exactly girlfriend, but she's very defensive of Lemres.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverFrankendad voiced by: Takuo Kawamura (Japanese), Mark Atherlay (English, Puyo Pop Fever)Frankenson voiced by: Mie Sonozaki (Japanese), Brett Walter (English, Puyo Pop Fever)F-f-friEND!Daddy says... "End! We won't let you pass!"
A pair of, well, Frankensteins that appeared in only the first two games. Frankendad is The Unintelligible, and his son has a Verbal Tic.
- Badass Family: One of the stronger opponents.
- Drop the Washtub: One drops on the Frankensteins father when large amounts of nuisance puyo fall on his field.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin
- Family Business: In Puyo, at least.
- Frankenstein's Monster: Two of them.
- Lightning Can Do Anything: This is what brought Frankenson to life.
- Robo Family: A scientist created Frankendad created Frankenson.
- Sequel Non-Entity
- The Unintelligible: Mr Frankenstein.
- Verbal Tic: "Freh" and "(My) Daddy says..."
- Wacky Parent, Serious Child
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2Voiced by: Hisayoshi SuganumaMy special soup, this is. Drink up, drink up.
A elf-like person who is obsessed with serving people his signature mushroom soup, living in a lone cabin in the forest. Strangely only appeared in Fever 2 until returning in Quest.
- All There in the Manual: According to the official Fever 2 website, he was originally a giant that somehow shrank down to normal size. It also mentions him loving honey.
- Ambiguously Brown: Notably one of the rare cases of a character having tan skin.
- Chef of Iron
- Creepy Good: Despite his very weird behavoir, he's ultimately harmless.
- Does Not Like Shoes
- Eye-Obscuring Hat
- Perpetual Smiler
- Sequel Non-Entity: A rather extreme case compared to other characters, since he appeared in only one game until being brought back in Quest.
- Strange-Syntax Speaker
- Trademark Favorite Food: Weirdly subverted. Despite being associated with mushrooms and soup, his favorite food is apparently honey.
- Trouser Space: Pulls out a mysterious potion out of his pants in Raffina's HaraHara course. Raffina naturally rejects the potion out of disgust.
- Walking Shirtless Scene
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Takuo Kawamura (Japanese), Mark Atherlay (English, Puyo Pop Fever)Dodging our peck attacks like that, now that takes skill. Hmmm- But I haven't lost just yet! Time to take your place in the pecking order!
A strange bird that thinks he's a superhero. He lives in a nest near Ta-Doon-Da Castle, seemingly attacking people who enter his territory. He's also known for his quirky speech, where he tends to say "Ho-ho" ("Mm-hm" in English).
- Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Justified due to being a bird.
- Asskicking Pose: His low stance before fighting Amitie and Raffina in Fever 2.
- Butt-Monkey: In cutscenes he appears in, he's often abused in some way. In Fever he misses diving bombing Raffina and crashes, while in Fever 2 he gets roasted by Amitie's "Blazing Hot Flame Beam".
- Death from Above: Attempts a dive bomb at Raffina in Fever, but misses.
- Ground Pound: Ho-ho Dynamic.
- Large Ham
- Opaque Nerd Glasses: With shades of Cool Mask.
- Sequel Non-Entity
- Small Name, Big Ego
- Verbal Tic: Says "Ho-ho" or "Mm-hm" in his speech, even in his attacks such as Ho-ho Smash.
- Victory Pose: Crosses his wings in a Super Sentai-like pose.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Mie Sonozaki (Japanese), Thessaly Lerner (English, Puyo Pop Fever)Stage Actor: Marina TanoueThey'renote very cool. In fact, there's nothing cooler... than being smart and looking good with books. Like myself. I'm the coolest of them all, actually.
Local genius of Primp Town, Klug serves as a sort of Mr. Exposition, with knowledge of several events (but never willing to reveal them).
- Adjusting Your Glasses: By the bridge in Fever 1 and 2 and 15th, and by the corner in 20th.
- Angrish: Has one moment in his story where he just mutters complete nonsense in front of Sig, while under the effects of Witch's Secret Juice. What we see in the dialogue displays the Japanese equivalent of Blah Blah Blah, but what we actually hear is pretty hilarious.
- Altum Videtur: Has a tendency to use latin words in his spells.
- Asshole Victim: He's at the same time a Jerkass and a Butt-Monkey, suffering from Demonic Possessions from time to time, and being picked on by Raffina and Feli, among others.
- Aesop Amnesia: He's possessed by his book in Fever 2. Still has it with him in 15th. Still with him in 7. Still with him in 20th. And no, he didn't find a way to get rid of the demon. Lemres lampshades this in 7, but Klug just tells him it's under control. And in Tetris, all it takes for the demon to get crazy again (no possession this time, however) is Sig walking past Klug - taking Schezo to calm it down.
- Bookworm: So he says.
- Badass Bookworm: Should he feel the need to do something helpful.
- Birds of a Feather: Shares a moment in Puyo Quest with fellow dark magic practitioner Miriam. He even declares him as a rival!
- Conflict Ball: Drops these so much you'd think it would be For the Evulz.
- Demonic Possession: Well, what did you think was going to happen when you carry around a possessed book? Some people just have to learn the hard way...and with Strange Klug filling in for Klug's adult transformation in PP7, he never learned. He claims to have it under control according to a 7 victory quote, but can we really take his word for it?
- Doomed by Canon: Based on PP7, he will end up being possessed again as an adult, perhaps permanently.
- Double Take: In Tetris's English dub, when Schezo announces his intentions towards Sig.
- Drunk on Milk: The entirety of his story in 20th began with him getting drunk on Witch's Secret Drink. What the heck did she use to make that anyway!?
- Mood-Swinger: One of the drink's effects is this.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: Collected the items needed to release the demon within his book on choice. Doesn't help that he covers up his mistake to Amitie at the end of her Hard Course in Fever 2, saying that it was "an experiment to see what would happen if one was possessed".
- Exact Words: His wish in 15th was to have his success written in a 16 page spread in the Monthly Kuromage, the town's local magazine. Popoi acknowledges how specific it is, but his hopes get shot down after Ms. Accord points out he'll get his wish if he becomes successful, which he failed to mention. So much for that spread, eh?
- Fanboy: To Lemres.
- The Gadfly: He was clever enough to use different provocations against Amitie and Raffina.
- Genius Sweet Tooth: Implied by the abundance of chocolate-based snacks he brought to school in Amitie and the Mysterious Egg. Earlier, he had a chocolate bar stating it's the best food to snack on while studying, and he passes off the abundance of chocolate pie, chocolate chip cookies, and chocolate pudding as "mere coincidence". Considering that Lemres is also a Genius Sweet Tooth, it's possible Klug is trying to imitate him.
- Good Colors, Evil Colors: He wears Purple as a neutral color, but borderlines on "evil".
- Good Is Not Nice: He does not have bad intentions, and occasionally helps the heroes, but he's a Jerkass towards everyone bar Lemres (whom he idolizes) and Feli (whom he's terrified of).
- Haiku: All (in Japanese) / most (in English) of his incantation can be divided into lines with five or seven morae/syllables.Saa, maware
Gin no tsuki
Kin no taiyou
Shikkoku no sora
Ware ni chikara o!There, come to me now
Golden sunlight, silver moon
Jet black cosmos
Give me your power!
- I Just Want to Be Special: Has a dream of being famous enough to earn 17 pages in the local magician's magazine. Isn't going so well right now.
- I Just Want to Be You: His more mentioned dream is to become as important as Lemres is.
- Insufferable Genius: When he smugly claims he knows everything about the problem at hand, he actually does, even if he will not tell you it before beating him in a Puyo match. In spite of his attitude, it says enough that, in the Everyone's dreams coming true!? Light Novel, when Raffina starts doubting whether what she sees is actually a dream, her voice of reason is a projection of Klug.
- Jerkass: We would be shocked if he actually did something nice that isn't towards Lemres (or Feli, whom he is terrified of talking to).
- The Knights Who Say "Squee!": He's a genius; we can't deny that. Even so, he idolizes Lemres.
- Leitmotif: "I'm the Greatest, Ever!" in 15th.
- "Nebula Step" in 20th.
- Meaningful Name: "Klug" is German for a lot of things; wise, clever, smart, prudent, shrewd...
- Milking the Giant Cow: His laughing sprite, though only with one hand. The other is held back, holding onto the book.
- Mr. Exposition: ZigZagged. You will need to defeat him in a Puyo match to get information from him in the games. When he does explain, however, half of the time he words it in a way that sounds incredibly vague and not exactly useful at all. Sig of all people calls him out on this in Amitie and the Mysterious Egg, in trying to explain what Tama is specifically (aside from being a white bird).
- Nerd Glasses: Large, circular frames in wires...
- Nice Hat: Never seen without one. He has a checkered newsboy hat in place of his usual cap as Coffee Shop Klug.
- Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The mean one with Amitie and Sig.
- Not Himself: In Fever 2, his Deka transformation in 7, the 20th Anniversary alternate costume for him...
- Pet the Dog: He does learn from this though; he ends up giving the final item used to break the book's seal to Amitie rather than keep it.
- Power Floats: His book is seen floating when he casts powerful spells.
- Powers via Possession: Into Strange Klug.
- Pride Before a Fall: Klug looks unhappy about being sealed in a book. When he's released, he brushes it off like nothing happened.
- Purple Is Powerful: His AI's one of the stronger characters, and his fast chains can be a challenge to someone who doesn't know what they're doing.
- Recognition Failure: From Satan's story in 15th. Although, to be fair, he thought Satan was a myth... but it doesn't change the fact that he found Satan out from a book, and stated that this "cosplayer" looked just like him.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Sig and Strange Klug, blue to Raffina and Amitie.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: His glasses a tendency to obscure his eyes when he wildly grins. Occasionally downplayed to a single lens-flare.
- Screams Like a Little Girl: He has a noticeably high-pitched scream when he sustains heavy damage.
- Signature Laugh: UHYAHYAHYAHYA!
- Smart People Wear Glasses
- Soul Jar: The book he carries around with him has a red spirit that pokes out of its pages now and then. It's also what he gets sealed into whenever Strange Klug takes over. And he continues to carry it, even when it's still possessed.
- Theme Naming: Nebula, Lacteus Orbis, Nebula Macula... Meanwhile, Ignis means fire.
- Superpowered Evil Side: Has one in Strange Klug, who has stronger AI.
- Too Dumb to Live: Have we mentioned he's still carrying around a book that could, apparently, posses him at any moment? Let's take this small part from The Record of the Sealing, an in-game book, just to show you what went wrong in Fever 2:
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2Now then, Mr Akuma. Shall we play our game of Puyo? If I win, you'll be given five candies. Okay?
A senior magic student of the neighboring, unnamed town, Lemres was the boss of the WakuWaku course in Fever 2. He's actually very strong and intelligent, but hides it behind being Sega's answer to Schezo.
- Affably Evil: At least he debuted as a boss.
- Beware the Silly Ones: His quirks are off-putting at first, but his skill in magic is nothing to sneeze at.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Is a famous warlock; popular enough to appear in magazines.
- Butt-Monkey: In his debut game anyway. The ending of each of the WakuWaku routes in Fever 2 ends with him being beat up in some form. Sure Sig undid his, but it's only until Amitie finds out that he's the visitor in question, and is dragged to Primp Town, still beaten up. In 20th anniversary he is beaten up by Witch after calling her potions weird.
- Camp Straight: In 15th, after mistaking Schezo's desire for his power as flirting with him, he explains he's not interested in men.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Some of his stranger actions (such as turning the ocean into milk in 15th) and giving Klug a book with a powerful demon sealed inside place him into this trope.
- Color-Coded Wizardry: Is clad in dark green.
- Compressed Abstinence: His story's plot in 20th. He attempts to wean himself from using candy to power his magic, and it goes about as well as you'd expect from a guy with a Sweet Tooth.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Klug's flavor text in 7 alludes to Lemres's magic being dark in nature, but he himself is a fairly friendly person. Heck, his upbringing was in a family of dark mages.
- Erudite Stoner: A G-rated version alluded to in Tetris's English dub with his very calm dub voice and love of sweets.
- Expy: Of Schezo, though he exchanges the rivalry for his own quirks.
- Eyes Always Shut: Fans in Japan though can't seem to decide if they should match his color scheme with gold eyes or turn him into a Heroic Albino.
- Flying Broomstick: Carried one around prior to 20th, where he switches it out for his wand. Though, as Sig's Secret shows, he can simply conjure one up with a wave of his wand.
- Foil: To Witch. Both are comet magicians, but where Witch is hyperactive and self-centered, Lemres is calm and friendly.
- Instant Expert: Tee teaches him how to play Tetris. Lemres catches on fast enough that he claims he could even beat Tee... and does so in the next stage.
- Lost in Translation: The pun in Uncanny Lemres is lost when translated. The adjective is spelled "おかしな". If you drop the な (Na), you get おかし, which, fittingly, is the word for "sweets".
- Madness Mantra: He gets a bit...loony under sweets withdrawal.
- And then he goes "Cake...Cake. Cake? Cakecakecakecake! CAAAAAAAAKE!"
- Magic Wand: He switches out his broom for this in 20th.
- Motifs: Feli keeps comparing him to a comet that will "bring the light" and wants to "keep people from blocking her light".
- Mystical White Hair
- Nice Guy: Once you get past the suspicious implications, he's really kind at heart.
- Not What It Looks Like: Lemres attempts to give candy to Amitie in her course. Pretty much speaks for itself.
- Older Than He Looks: In 15th, Accord explains that Lemres uses anti-aging spells on himself.
- Parental Abandonment: An implied inversion. The Drama CDs disclose that he has a father, but Fever 2 lists "his own house" as a dislike. Puyo Quest flavor text also states that he doesn't come home much and enjoys his freedom. It can be pieced together that he left his home by choice, for an unstated sour reason.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Not like you can see them anyway.
- Rake Take: One of his damage animations is Fever 2 is him tripping on his broom and the stick smacking him in the face.
- Sempai/Kohai: He's Feli's senior.
- Spell Theme: Rissoler, Rouleau, Sucre Filé, Caramelisér, and Glaçage. 15th Anniversary adds Fariner and Forêt Noire, then 20th Anniversary adds Parfait and Confiture. In translation, minus Parfait (which is a desert), they mean "to brown", "to roll", spun sugar, caramelize, glaze/frosting, "to flour", Black Forest (Cake), and jam. Predictably, they're related to sweets, baking or otherwise.
- Spoiled Sweet: According to Puyo Quest flavor text and a drama CD, he's actually of nobility, even having a maid and butler! And despite his suspicious implications of sharing candy, he is very much so a sweet guy.
- Sweet Tooth: He has an endless supply of them, he makes them himself, and in the Sig's Secret Light Novel, even conjures an abundance of them out of thin air! Justified in that it's his Power Source. Really. He tried to train without his candy for a few days in 20th, but it doesn't go well.
- Genius Sweet Tooth: Earning his status before he even graduated magic school, he possibly could be this.
- Sweets O Vision: Happens at one point during his story in 20th. Donguri Gaeru is not a melon gumdrop!
- Trademark Favorite Food: Sweets, of course. According to his profile in Fever 2, he likes parfaits in particular, and in 15th Anniversary, Feli says his absolute favorite candy is swirly lollipops.
- Weirdness Coupon: He gets away with randomly passing out candy because no one seems to mind.
- What the Hell, Hero?:
- Gave Klug a book with a powerful demon inside for no good reason.
- Forces Amitie to play Puyo with him with the stakes of "winner fights Strange Klug". His justification being that the winner of the duel is the stronger of the two.
- Wishes for the sea to turn into jelly, killing the entire ocean ecosystem.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Subverted. He has the hair, gets called suspicious at times, but he's generally a nice (albeit odd) guy.
- First Appearance: Puyo Pop FeverVoiced by: Noriko Namiki (Japanese), Giovani Pico (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Lauren Landa (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)Umm... also, if I win... Will you let me call you brother?
A humanoid of currently undefined species that attends school at Primp Town. Very shy, she treats Satan like a big brother.
- Blush Sticker: On her all the time.
- Cue the Rain: Her defeat animation in 15th.
- Demi Human
- Demoted to Extra: In Puyo Tetris. She makes two minor appearances in the story mode: once in space, where she meets Draco, and once in Amitie's memories.
- She makes a third appearance in the second DLC chapter (chapter 9), where she's the first to try to dissuade Schezo to not chase after Sig.
- Drunk on Milk: She must've drank the same "Secret Drink" Klug had in the latter's story in 20th Anniversary.
- Expy: Has elements of Draco (horns, green hair, weak AI) and Yon's Chico. (Small size, ears.) It's probably not a coincidence that Draco borrowed Lidelle's dropset for Puyo Puyo 7 after the former stepped off of The Bus.
- Freakiness Shame: She's been ashamed of her horns, but eventually comes to appreciate them after meeting Satan with his "very fine pair of horns" in 15th.
- Aesop Amnesia: However, she still feels shy about her horns in 20th.
- Friendless Background: She didn't have friends until Amitie and Tarutaru befriended her.
- Friends with Satan: She even calls him "big brother", much to his disdain.
- Hand-Hiding Sleeves: They're far larger than her arms. She's also depicted using them to whip up her wind-based spells.
- Innocently Insensitive: When she was up against Schezo in the latter's story mode in 15th Anniversary, she utters 'pervert' by complete accident."I'm sorry... Did I offend?"
- She expresses jealously that Oshare doesn't have to worry about his hairstyle...by pointing out that he is bald. Oshare doesn't take it very well.
- Leitmotif: "Rider's Secret Dream."
- "Troubled Rider's Request" in 20th.
- It's Pronounced Tro-PAY: When she was called 'Rider', you didn't pronounce her name like "horse rider." It was supposed to be "reed-AIR."
- Little Miss Badass: Only when played by a human.
- Odango Hair: To hide her horns.
- Shrinking Violet
- Spell My Name with an "S": Puyo Pop Fever couldn't decide between Rider (from the manual), Ridel◊ (Another romantization), or Rita◊ (What Amitie says in English). The series settled on "Rider" for a bit, despite the fact that her name in katakana (リデル) is nowhere near close to the usual spelling of Rider (ライダー) and instead resembles some variation of Liddel/Riddel. Indeed, when the English version of Puyo Puyo Tetris came about, her name was corrected to Lidelle.
- Spell Theme: Vento, Uragano, Tifone, Tuono and Arcobaleno. In Translation, they are; Wind, Hurricane, Typhoon, Thunder, and Rainbow.
- Weather Manipulation - Blow You Away / Shock and Awe / The Power of the Sun: Can manipulate wind, lightning, and sunshine; she uses wind a lot, but some of her spells use lightning-like animations.
- Color-Coded Elements: Interestingly enough, her clothing is Wind-Green and Light-Yellow with dashes of orange.
- Wind Is Green
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Miwa Kouzuki (Japanese), Irene Trapp (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Wendee Lee (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)Stage Actor: Juria KawakamiLet's begin.
The mysterious schoolteacher of Primp Town that holds the living cat puppet Popoi. She seems sweet, but holds some strange secrets that are still unexplained.
- All Witches Have Cats: She constantly carries what she claims to be a black cat puppet.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Her single player AI (outside of 15th and 20th's story modes) is among the hardest, regularly up there with the Final Boss characters.
- She's the only non-extra character to have a skill level of 9, tying with Red Amitie, White Feli, Strange Klug, and Black Sig.
- Chucking Chalk: It's listed as her special skill in Fever 2. We can see it in action as her 3rd chain spell, too.
- Consulting Mister Puppet: Subverted in that the puppet is alive.
- Demoted to Extra: In Puyo Tetris. Appears in a Contrived Coincidence moment at the end of chapter 5 where she tells the cast about a special area they can train in, in order to increase their power and reach the end of time-space.
- Appears in the final DLC chapter (chapter 10). Since Ex never met her in the real world and only heard about her through Tee's logs, she is the reason that Ex is able to determine that the dream world he's in doesn't belong to him, but to Tee.
- Eccentric Mentor: Nobody knows anything about her, other than the fact that she's a good teacher with a talking puppet.
- Empathy Pet: Popoi.
- Eyes Always Shut
- Grievous Harm with a Body: Popoi Lance, where she chucks her pet at the screen.
- Leitmotif: Though 15th has Cheerful Surprise Test, when playing against her in other games, "It's the Teacher's Class" usually plays.
- Little Black Dress: Discussed by Oshare in 15th, saying that she should try wearing one. Popoi doesn't seem to mind.
- Magic Wand: Flying Cane, which triples as a pointer stick and a baton.
- Meaningful Name: Ties in with her Spell Theme.
- Narrator: She isn't a character involved in the stage play's plot. Rather, she and Popoi comment on the events of the story.
- Robe and Wizard Hat: Her choice of attire, though heavily modernized.
- School Teacher
- Spell Theme: In Fever, she used musical terms. It slowly shifted into school-related terms in Fever 2, when her animations were changed.
- The Unreveal and Left Hanging: So in Fever's HaraHara Course, what, exactly, was her reason for sending her students on a wild goose chase looking for her "misplaced" flying cane that she had all along? And wiping Raffina's memory of it after she found out it wasn't missing? Sega's lips are still sealed.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Naomi Wakabayashi (Japanese), Ali Johnston (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Erin Fitzgerald (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
A pink dolphin that lives in the neighboring ocean. Very crass and a stereotypical royal-stuckup.
- Amazing Technicolor Wildlife
- Battle Butler: Both his actual butler, Otomo, and Sig.
- Bishōnen: His human form looks very feminine, to Raffina's disappointment.
- "Blind Idiot" Translation: His official name is, believe it or not, "Prince of Ocean". Tetris has his name changed to the more correct "Ocean Prince".
- Demoted to Extra: In Puyo Tetris. Appears once in space along with Suketoudara, and demands him to find a way home.
- He appears in the second DLC chapter (chapter 9) as another one of Schezo's obstacles. He's immediately calls Schezo a potential creeper upon noticing his Cuteness Proximity mode, then he runs away.
- Exotic Eye Designs: A four-point star in both of his eyes.
- Expy: Of Suketoudara's "talking fish" thing.
- The Gadfly: It is implied at the end of his 20th Anniversary's story mode that he pulls pranks on Otomo as he tries to avoid his royal duties.
- Humanity Ensues: Inverted; The Ocean Prince is a prince that turned himself into a dolphin by magic to get away from his duties at the castle and be free, thus why his butler is always looking for him. During Raffina's WakuWaku course in Fever 2, he's captured and returned to his human form, playing it straight. He returns to normal though when he gets the Lantern of the Stars back from Strange Klug, though.
- Making a Splash: His spells.
- The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: Briefly mentioned at one point, when he got turned back into a human in Fever 2. His food tastes change:"Normally I wouldn't consider [the Donguri Gaeru] delicious... but my palate has been altered by this form."
- Leitmotif: 15th gives him "Ocean Prince ~Graceful Wandering~"
- 20th has "Dignity of the Prince".
- Overly Long Name: His real name is Prince Salde Canarl Shellbrick the Third. Even he doesn't use his full name when addressing who he is - he merely introduces himself as "Prince Shellbrick III" to Suketoudara in Tetris.
- Pink Prince Blue Boy: With Sig.
- Prince Charmless: Described by Raffina as such in Fever 2. Otomo prefers to think he's Prince Charming, even though he's not.
- Real Men Wear Pink: His dolphin form IS pink. Even when turned back into a human, his clothes are mostly pink.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: Particularly since his redesign in 20th. To Schezo, he's as adorable as Donguri Gaeru and Onion Pixie.
- Royal Brat: This guy is even blowing off his royal duties. Otomo tries to teach him how to behave like a proper prince, to no avail.
- Significant Birth Date: He is a Pisces.
- Super-Deformed: In his dolphin form, his arms got shorter and his head got bigger since 20th.
- Unexplained Recovery: He was eaten twice, and still appears in new games.
- His defeat animation has him left to a skeleton.
- Visual Pun: He's a prince that happens to be a dolphin (most of the time). In France, the Crown Prince is called "Dauphin". "Dauphin" means dolphin.
- Was Once a Man: Changed into a dolphin by choice.
- Ye Olde Butchered English: Given this dialect from his Katakana-heavy speech.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is pink in his human form.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Noriko Namiki (Japanese), Evelyn Huynh (English, Puyo Pop Fever)Onion! Onion onion!
A small oni that lives in the forest. He has a crush on a fellow member of his race, Oniko, and considers himself Sig's rival for her love.
- Animal Talk: Apparently onions and frogs can communicate, if Donguri Gaeru's story was an indication.
- Berserk Button: He doesn't like being called cute. The sight of Sig also provokes him.
- Carry a Big Stick: Though "big" is relative in this case.
- Demoted to Extra: In Puyo Tetris, along with Donguri Gaeru. Only appears to make Schezo Squee!.
- Dub Name Change: A weird subversion. He's known as "Onion" in hiragana, but whenever a romanization is required, he is always referred to as Onion Pixy/Pixie. It's similar to how Mobile Suit Gundam and Kidou Senshi (Mobile Warrior) Gundam are used interchangeably in Japan, only this applies to a character.
- Expy: Of Nasu Grave.
- Fun Size
- Everything's Better with Spinning: Some of his animations require this.
- I Just Want to Be Badass: He totes himself as a "cool, hard-boiled guy" and wants to become strong to protect Oniko. Unfortunately his attempts at being badass come off as being cute, to his annoyance.
- Leitmotif: Has "Onion Forest" in 15th.
- "Knight-Errant Onion" in 20th.
- Meaningful Name / Punny Name: His head is an onion, but he's also an oni!
- Perpetual Frowner: And his girlfriend is a Perpetual Smiler.
- Pokémon Speak: All he says is "Onion" in English and Japanese.
- Thought Bubble Speech: The entirety of his story in 20th displays his thoughts, but nearly no one he encounters understands onion-speak.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: Schezo finds him as such in 20th and Tetris. Just don't say it aloud in front of him.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Onion Pixie's love interest. However, she initially appeared to be fond of Sig instead, which made Onion Pixie disappointed. She occasionally appears in Onion Pixie's animations starting in 15th.
- Blush Stickers
- Inter Species Romance: Initially falls in love with Sig instead of Onion Pixie, yet still has some latent feelings for the former.
- Perpetual Smiler: Contrasting Onion Pixie.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter
- Satellite Love Interest
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Wears a small red bow on her head and wears a dress to differentiate herself from Onion Pixie.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoice Actor: Makoto Yasumura (Japanese), Mark Atherlay (English, Puyo Pop Fever)Call the fashion police!
A flamboyantly gay skeleton who is very interested in fashion, and often criticizes the appearances of those around him. He's currently awaiting the day when he can finally reunite with his long-lost lover. Also, in Puyo Puyo Fever 2, he runs the item shop.
- All Gays Are Promiscuous: While no sex is mentioned, he shows interest in multiple characters all within the same game despite having a lover he's waiting to reunite with. (In 15th Anniversary, there's Lemres, Zoh, Satan, not to mention a win quote against Ocean Prince:)"Be sure to invite a lot of nice gentlemen to the ball."
- Always Camp
- Animal Motifs: Each game has little purple bats that appear with him in at least one animation, and the paper his letters are written on in Fever 2 has bat designs.
- Artificial Stupidity: His AI never rotates his puyos.
- Berserk Button: Making even slightly negative comments about his appearance is a good way to set him off.
- Another one seems to be "mocking" his fashion advice, such as when Arle briefly considers borrowing a hat from Amitie. (Whose hat Oshare thinks looks ridiculous.)
- Bittersweet Ending: The ending to his story in 15th Anniversary is this, somewhat. While he is one of the few people to have his wish granted (specifically, a reunion with his missing lover), he uses ambiguous wording when making the wish, that leaves him stuck not knowing when his wish will actually come true.
- Camp Gay: Disturbingly so.
- Crossdresser: There are a few quotes◊ that imply this. Whether he's wholesome or creepy is up to you.
- The Dead Have Eyes: Well, one eye, anyway.
- Dem Bones
- Exotic Eye Designs: On top of the severely Mismatched Eyes, his right eye has rings in it that no other character has.
- Expy: Takes Skeleton-T's role as Fever's talking skeleton.
- The Fashionista
- Friendly Neighborhood Skeleton: His fashion evaluations may be harsh, but he seems to be on good terms with many of the other characters. A magazine article in the library in Fever 2 implies that at least some people in town might still be frightened of him, however.
- Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: But only in one eye.
- Going Commando: Amitie actually points this out in Fever 2 as described below. Being a skeleton, however, there's nothing in particular he really needs to cover up.
- Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Male example, but is Camp Gay and certainly acts the part of a lady.
- Gratuitous English: His spells, Elegant, Psychedelic, and Asymmetry.
- Gratuitous French: His other spells, Avant-Garde and Très Bien.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Not an animal, but is a non-human that wears nothing but a hat and cloak all the same. He gets really upset when Amitie questions him on this.
- House of Broken Mirrors: In 15th Anniversary, he mentions having thrown away every old photo of himself into the sea, and then begs Lemres not to recover them.
- Inter Species Romance: This◊ win quote against Zoh Daimaoh, who is an elephant.
- I Was Quite a Looker: He makes some claims like this in 15th Anniversary.
- I Will Wait for You: He's awaiting the day he reunites with his missing lover.
- Japanese Pronouns: Uses the very feminine atashi to refer to himself.
- Leitmotif: "Looking For a Visitor".
- Lennon Specs: Wears a little orange pair.
- Losing Your Head: Common in his hit animations.
- Meaningful Name / Punny Name: Oshare means "Stylish". It's all he cares about. Also, his Japanese name, Oshare Koube, contains "sharekoube" which means skull.
- Memento MacGuffin: The "Memory of Chu" item in Fever 2 was given to him as a gift by his now-missing lover. However, he threw it into the sea so that he wouldn't be reminded of his lover's disappearance, and once it is found he gives it to Raffina, feeling he no longer deserves to own it.
- Noblewoman's Laugh
- Nobody Over 50 Is Gay: Averted. He's at least 150, but his age when he died is unknown.
- Purple Is the New Black: Likely, since having a skeleton wear black would be cliche (and unfashionable.)
- Serious Business: Fashion is very much this for him. He'll challenge people to Puyo matches over it, in fact.
- Shopkeeper: In Fever 2; it sells everything, from summoning items to live fowl.
- Significant Birth Date: Christmas Eve, which in Japan is a very romantic holiday.
- Trans Equals Gay: While his own gender identity is yet to be revealed, he mistook Zoh Daimaoh for gay because he wears a bindi.
- What Happened to the Fashionable Skeleton?: While referenced (though not by name) in Puyo Puyo 7, his last real appearance was in 15th Anniversary, which brought up aspects of his life (his appearance and the identity of his missing lover) that due to his absence from the series have not been touched on since.
- White Flag: Waves the flag in his losing animations in Fever 2 and 15th Anniversary.
- You Fool!: His victory phrase is basically this.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2Voiced by: Hisayoshi SuganumaExcuse me, but have you seen the Prince around here?
Ocean Prince's supposed butler. He's normally a timid young man, but he is absolutely passionate with protecting the prince, and seems to have some sort of fondness for him too. Too bad he's also a victim of Ocean Prince's constant escapes and pranks. In Fever 2, he appears as an NPC, and cameos in some of Ocean Prince's animations for future titles.
- Battle Butler: Downplayed. He only cameos in some of Ocean Prince's animations, and even in Quest his stats and skills focus on healing.
- Bait-and-Switch Boss: Subverted in Fever 2. The first cutscene in the WakuWaku course with Raffina is set up at first to be a match with Lidelle, but then Otomo suddenly bursts onto scene and knocks away Lidelle... but he merely requests for Raffina to find Ocean Prince, and then the cutscene ends with a battle with Lidelle like normal.
- Cowardly Lion
- Cuteness Proximity: Talking about or seeing Ocean Prince makes him gush over how "beautiful" and "cute" he is hard.
- Determinator: He never gives up looking for Ocean Prince, no matter how many times he's duped.
- Fanboy: To Ocean Prince.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Instead of the typical anime eyes everyone else has, his eyes are tiny white dots. He also appears to lack defined feet like the other human-esque characters.
- Oh, No... Not Again!:"Boo hoo... Now I must seek him out yet again..."
- Out-of-Character Moment: "Serious Otomo" in Quest. He looks pissed, and in a meta sense it focuses more on offense unlike his normal cards.
- Promoted to Playable: Quest is the first time a player can use him in battle.
- Sword Pointing: Serious Otomo in Quest.
- Taking the Bullet: In 15th, he's the one that receives damage, not Ocean Prince. It's even lampshaded by Ms. Accord in 15th, should you lose to her in Ocean Prince's story.
- Undying Loyalty: To Ocean Prince, despite Ocean Prince not feeling the same.
- Yank the Dog's Chain: Just when he's about to get Ocean Prince, it always results in him managing to escape.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Miwa Kouzuki (Japanese), Erin M. Cahill (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Kyle Hebert (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
Ms Accord's black cat puppet, Popoi is usually an assistant. He, much like Accord, is shrouded in mystery, and little is known about who or what he is, though he claims to be "The Prince of Darkness". Takes the place as Fever's villain, appearing suddenly at the end of the WakuWaku and HaraHara courses.
- Autobots, Rock Out!: At least it isn't as head pounding, right?
- Big Bad of Fever.
- By the Lights of Their Eyes: He has his eyes glow in the dark.
- Cats Are Mean
- Demonic Dummy
- Demoted to Extra: Following Fever, he's usually Accord's sidekick. Given that he's just supposed to be a puppet, this makes sense.
- Expy: Of Carbuncle, as Fever's pet with Giant Space Flea from Nowhere tendencies.
- Final Boss: Of Fever's WakuWaku and HaraHara courses (Carbuncle notwithstanding in the latter).
- Friendly Enemy: If he isn't the villain, he's helping Accord with teaching and running a shop in 20th Anniversary.
- Fun Size: Easily fits onto Accord's shoulder despite being a cat.
- Hair Color Dissonance: Supposed to be black, but is purple in Fever 2 onwards.
- Hyperspace Mallet: He admits that he can turn into one for Accord, and his alternate form Black Popoi suddenly has one after you evolve him the first time. When Schezo attempts to question him about that in Chronicle, he is quick to deny it.
- Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: It does not help that Popoi's Living Shadow form never appeared after Fever (Not counting Quest), meaning it is never explored in the plot.
- Honest Axe: Tried this with Amitie, as seen above.
- Living Shadow: Or something close in Boss form.
- Perverse Puppet
- Significant Birth Date: February 22, Cat Day.
- Spell Theme: Galaxy (meow), Shooting Star, Stardust Whip, and Black Hole.
- Tail Slap: Whip meow!
- Verbal Tic: Meow.
- Your Size May Vary: He easily fits in Accord's hands, but he's quite big as a boss. Magic maybe?
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Noriko Namiki (Japanese), Brett Walter (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Erica Lindbeck (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)Stage Actor: Aya KinoshitaSo much for respecting the elderly... How dare you give me that attitude! Forget being nice, I'll just force you to tell me!
Alpha Bitch of Primp Town, Raffina's possibly one of the cruelest characters from Fever, and is the rare case in the entire series; she's the only person mean 24/7.
- All Amazons Want Hercules: In her dream in Everyone's dreams coming true!?, Raffina rejects two attractive men because she delivered a Curb-Stomp Battle to both, implying she wishes to marry someone who can keep up with her in a fight.
- Alpha Bitch: Good luck finding one moment in the series where she is not being mean towards anyone.
- Amplifier Artifact (originally) / Amulet of Concentrated Awesome (from PPF2 onwards): Her pouch.
- Anti-Hero: She saves the day once in a while? She does. Heroic disposition? Nope.
- Best Her to Bed Her: In her dream in "Everyone's dreams are coming true!?", she challenges the two men who are flirting with her to a fight. She doesn't seem to mind that, but after giving each one a Curb-Stomp Battle, she rejects them - implying she wants a man who can keep up in a fight.
- Big Ego, Hidden Depths: Refined and prideful as she is, her story in 20th shows she's a little self-conscious of her magic power, running off when Lemres points out her waist pouch is her main power source.
- Bitch Alert: The most noticeable thing she's ever done is say "Damn! If it isn't Mr. Goody Two Shoesnote ". In an E-Rated Game.
- Biting the Handkerchief: Should she be defeated in a Puyo match.
- Cherry Blossom Girl: As Sakura Raffina in Puyo Quest.
- Expy: Of Rulue as a martial artist among magic users, though with her Jerkass traits Up to Eleven. Unsurprisingly, they get along well when they encounter each other in 20th.
- Full-Contact Magic: It's almost mandatory for her to do this, if she wants to cast any spell.
- Girly Bruiser: Prim, proper, strives for beauty, yet she's the most physically fit of the class. Her chaining power is one of the strongest in the series.
- Good Colors, Evil Colors: Averted. Despite wearing mostly pink, she's capable of making even villains look nice.
- Gratuitous French: Some of her spells and commonly-used phrases are in french. Oddly absent in the english version of Puyo Puyo Tetris, where she doesn't say anything in french.
- Green-Eyed Monster: She envies Amitie for her magical potential.
- Hair Decorations: A single wing hairpin which happens to be the school's emblem.
- Irrational Hatred: She mocks really everyone she comes across. Defied by her relationship with Klug, where he very much deserves it.
- I Take Offense to That Last One!: Strange Klug has revealed that he broke the item she needed and possessed Klug. How does she react? "This Is Unforgivable! that you broke my chance of beauty!" Turns out you need to break the stone to release its power.
- Jerkass: Big time, along with Klug and Ess.
- Kick Chick
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: One smack on the head later and she remembers nothing about her little search for the flying cane.
- Leitmotif: "More Beauty, More Strength!"
- For 20th, she has "I'm Elegant, Graceful and Powerful!"
- Magic Skirt: None of her kicks seem to flip her skirt up. Seems to be averted in recent titles, where she has to hold it down in her damage animations. She now kicks much lower too.
- Meaningful Name: French for "refined", and boy does she act like it.
- Narcissist: Her story lines in Fever 2 and 15th could be summarized as "Beauty Quest 1" and "2".
- Noblewoman's Laugh: "Oh hohoho!" Done when she enters Fever. It translates to "Oh la-ti-da!" in dialogue though.
- No Sense of Direction: In Fever, it's implied she has this, as she ended up back to the school building after setting off on a search for Ms. Accord's flying cane but wonders aloud how that even happened. This is what probably helped her reach the castle even faster than anyone else, dumbfounding Accord herself.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: It's not hard to miss Raffina's overuse of orange and yellow compared to Sig's blue and white.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: Subverted. She has the hair, aspires to have her own prince, but is far from being sweet.
- Sailor Fuku: Her Fever 2 outfit has the silhouette, but her current ensemble from 20th onward has a much looser interpretation. Her orange cardigan somehow has the sailor's collar and tie, and only strays a bit further in Puyo Tetris, which adds cuffs to it.
- She Knows Too Much: This is the reason her memory got wiped. She got to the castle faster than Accord predicted and found out the lost cane story was a load of baloney.
- Sleepy Head: Her Puyo Tetris DLC voice consists of incredibly drowsy attacks, as well as yawning while under attack.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Puyo Puyo Tetris changes her name to "Raffina." Given that Raffina matches up with the Japanese katakana spelling of her name, it's more likely that Sega (perhaps intentionally) got it wrong back in Fever.
- Spell Theme: Gratuitous French
- Supernatural Martial Arts
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Amitie's Tomboy.
- Un-Sorcerer: She technically does have magic power, but it's extremely low.
- Zettai Ryouiki: In Fever, it was Rank B. In Fever 2, it became a Rank C or D and stayed that way. In 20th, it returned to Rank B.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2Stage Actor: Ayana
Sig is everything but emotional. He's very quiet and isn't moved by anything at all, save for bugs. He doesn't mind that he's part demon, either. Obsessed with bugs, but this wasn't brought up in his first appearance at all.
- Accidental Misnaming: Tends to misname Raffina "Wuffine", or when corrected, "Waffine".
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Whenever he spots a bug.
- Bad Powers, Good People: Yes, he has demonic powers, but he has no evil intentions at all.
- Beetle Maniac: In official art, he usually has a beetle on his head. For 20th Anniversary, his shirt has a beetle on it.
- Berserk Button: Leave his ladybug alone. Please. Witch found out the hard way.
- Characterization Marches On: His obsession with bugs does not appear in Fever 2.
- Clueless Chick Magnet: Believe it or not, Sig actually has quite a number of admirers, whether it be for physical reasons or genuine admiration. This includes (but is not limited to) Rulue, Feli, and even Raffina of all people. It should be noted that the former two are both well-known for their infatuation with the likes of Satan and Lemres respectively, while Raffina has some...pretty interesting standards as to what she wants in a man.
- Amitie is all but outright said to have (romantic) feelings for him.
- Arle finds his hair antennae mesmerizing.
- Ringo thinks he smells nice.
- Rulue finds him adorable AND believes he could grow up to be quite the hunk.
- Raffina considers his red demon arm is very fashionable and even believed it was a result of working out too much.
- Just like Arle, Lidelle finds his hair antennae mesmerizing.
- Feli thinks his red demon arm is fashionable.
- Oniko outright fell in love with him, much to Onion Pixie's chagrin.
- Witch (begrudgingly) admired his tenacity to protect his pet ladybug.
- Jan considers his red arm “totally cool”.
- Aside from finding him somewhat handsome, Honey Bee devoted herself to him following him (unintentionally) rescuing her from Kodomo Dragon.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Though not as out there as Amitie, he is a little slow sometimes and gets distracted quite easily.
- The Comically Serious: Because of his very placid personality, even the most bizarre situations he's in will only invoke Dull Surprise at best. This is even reflected in his animations in Fever 2, where both of his damage animations depict him getting pelted with rocks and not even flinching.
- Creepy Monotone: As part of his stoic demeanor.
- Duality Motif: Only physically. His hair and one of his eyes is blue, while his left eye and arm are red, as he has demonic ancestry.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Black Sig is no more malicious than normal Sig.
- Eye Colour Change: His blue eye turned red when he was close to Strange Klug.
- Flat Joy: He cheers himself up when challenging Raffina in Chapter 4 in Puyo Puyo Tetris, in a way reminiscent of Droopy. Blatantly Played for Laughs through Unsound Effects:Sig: *Crowd-gone-wild-cheer*
- Friend to Bugs: Though he also collects them.
- Good Counterpart: To the demon inside Klug's book.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Half-demon in Sig's case, which is the cause of his red eye and hand.
- Have You Tried Not Being a Monster?: He has, and he enjoys it.
- Hair Antennae: Which twitch. They seem to be hypnotic or unsettling, depending on the person.
- Heart Trauma: Implied. In the same book you can find the history of Strange Klug, it's stated that, whatever remained of Sig's ancestor, was very absent-minded and stoic. It seems that missing half your soul runs in the family or something.
- Hero Antagonist: Of Tetris's Chapter 9, as he tries to avoid Schezo from claiming his power.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Lightly implied. While he is largely shown to not mind having a demonic arm, a few scenes and character descriptions show that he does have the desire to know more about it, and to possibly "cure" it. This is most apparent in his interaction with Akuma from the latter's 15th Anniversary story mode.
- Japanese Pronouns: He doesn't use a first person pronoun, indicating his lack of a sense of self.
- Leitmotif: "In The Middle of a Stroll".
- "Rapid Carefree Advice" in 20th.
- Mark of the Supernatural: His one red eye.
- Meaningful Name: Played with. His name is Germanic for "Victory Protection", which doesn't fit him at all, and is Swedish for "himself", which does fit him if you think too much about the back story for Strange Klug.
- Alternately, his name is, in Japanese, pronounced "Shi-guu"; Shig is a word often used to start Japanese names and means "luxuriant"... which also doesn't fit Sig.
- His name is Chinese for Accident.
- Mundane Utility: Sig uses his incredibly standing-out red left arm... to house a family of bugs. Schezo is not pleased to find out that fact.
- Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The in-between one with Amitie and Klug.
- Not So Stoic:
- He sounds genuinely upset when Witch tried to attack his ladybug in 20th.
- Black Sig is described in Quest to be far more emotional than how Sig normally is.
- Chapter 9 of Puyo Puyo Tetris contains the only moment in the series so far that you will hear him get upset to the point of sounding on the verge of tears.
- Our Demons Are Different: His ancestor is the good side of the demon that is trapped in Klug's book.
- Out-of-Character Moment: Black Sig in contrast to Sig normally shows a lot more emotion in his voice.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Blue Boy to Raffina's Pink Girl.
- Pokémon Speak: His DLC voice in the japanese version of Puyo Tetris makes all of his voice clips entirely this.
- Protectorate: At the end of Raffina's Hard course in Fever 2, Sig appears and tells Raffina not to advance due to Strange Klug. Raffina, being Raffina, proceeds to call him greedy and challenges him to a fight.
- Fans like to hope he becomes something like this to his Love Interest, Amitie.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: While Sig has a red left eye, due to his demon heritage, he's a good guy, and he cares about hardly anything else than collecting bugs. That being said, the trope is played straight the few times his blue right eye becomes red (i.e. when he encounters Strange Klug, and in Sig's secret), albeit because of the uncertainty of what's happening, and not because of Sig's behaviour.
- Red Right Hand: Subverted. His left arm is completely red and has claws. It's a proof of his demonic heritage, but Sig himself is unambiguously good.
- The Right Hand of Doom: In this case, the left hand of doom.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The savviness to Amitie's energy.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!:
- Tried to in his WakuWaku course against Lemres three times. Lemres grabbed him before he could run the first two times, but he succeeds the third.
- In Puyo Quest as "Crown Sig", one of his quotes is "Can I go home now?"
- Serious Business: Not even catching bugs gets him to express anything!
- Significant Birth Date: June 16 (6/16), the same birthday as Strange Klug.
- Sleeps with Both Eyes Open: We are informed that he can do this.
- Spell My Name with an "S": In-Universe; Ringo spelled his name as "Shigu" when she meets him in 7.note
- Theme Naming: With his spells. Cyan, Paraiba, and Robin's Egg are blue items; a color, a blue stone, and a blue-colored egg. Lapis Lazuil is another blue stone, replacing Paraiba in 20th. Celestial is a term used to describe the sky, and Hydrangeas are often a blue color as well.
- The Stoic: Exaggerated; this guy's face hardly moves, and has a perpetually monotone voice. Unless you use his alternate, "Happy" voice in 20th.
- Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Sig doesn't care at all about his red left arm, and as a result, no one (Except for Akuma in Fever 2 and Lemres in Sig's Secret) really knows why he has it.
- Utility Party Member: In Quest, Black Sig is a most significant case as (just like Red Amitie, who has the exact same skills) he makes multiple-colour decks viable, thanks to his HP and Attack boosting Leader Skills and powerful Attack boosting active skill (Which stacks with his Leader Skill), making his teammates very powerful and difficult to take down.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2Voiced by: Mie SonozakiHeh, dare you demand I return your classmate's body?
A demon possessing Klug's book, Strange Klug is very different than the nerd everyone's used to. Takes the place as Fever 2's villain, appearing at the end of all three HaraHara courses. He grew popular though, and made comebacks in future titles, but never as important as he was before(if you can call him important).
- Altum Videtur: Some of his spells have latin names. In Fever 2, they are spells that Klug would otherwise use, but in 20th he has some unique spells that also have latin names, such as "Anima"note and "Rubor Vini"note .
- Autobots, Rock Out!: Yes, it is compared to Touhou music.
- All Is Well That Ends Well: Worries, but brushes his first defeat off as a bump in his plan. Begins to seriously worry after he loses a second item.
- Bad Powers, Bad People: Is the second evil character that has dark intentions, coming after Doppelganger Arle and predates Ecolo.
- Badass Cape: Wears a ridiculously big and red cape, held onto his body with chains. It's tough enough to take damage for him, too.
- Big "NO!": When sealed again.
- Big Red Devil: If that shadow's to be believed.
- Bookworm: The original demon was one. Apparently, reading books was all he did before being sealed, which happened because he was convinced to open a book he didn't know would seal whoever opened it.
- Cape Swish: Does this in his 20th by holding it in his hands and turning.
- Chained by Fashion: Uses golden chains as a necklace, which holds his clock and his cape.
- Cheshire Cat Grin: Rare edition; though Klug's grins are full of teeth, Strange Klug doesn't seem to have teeth period.
- Concepts Are Cheap: Double Subverted; Strange Klug states several times that he took the three items and took over Klug's body to bring his body back, but he never states "why".
- Contrived Coincidence: His existence and his demise. Three items are required to unseal the demon residing in Klug's book... which happened to be delivered by Lemres to Primp at the same time. Then, Amitie, Sig and Raffina are asked by different characters to retrieve an item - the very same items that, when taken away from the demon, would seal it again.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Subverted. As a spirit sealed in Klug's book, the demon takes on a very cartoony look, with small gold eyes and a flat-toothed grin. During Fever and, until you find how he really acts in Fever 2, this gives the impression that it's some sort of prankster spirit sealed in a book.
- Demonic Possession
- Doppelgänger: Subverted - he's Klug under Demonic Possession, unlike other characters from the series such as Doppelganger Arle.
- Early-Bird Cameo: You can clearly see his little spirit form appearing in some of Klug's sprites in Fever before he shows up in the next game.
- Evil Counterpart: To Sig, as both are halves of the same demon, with opposite morality.
- Evil Gloating: And it's all he ever does.
- Evil Costume Switch: Turns Klug's suit from purple to red, unties his bowtie, dons a cape, untucks his shirt, and messes up his hair.
- Expansion Pack Past: If you read the Library in Fever 2, you'll find a story titled "Record of the Sealing". According to the book, a man bought a book that was used only for sealing souls, and would seal any one soul when opened. Upon showing it to his friends, they decided to travel up to the castle nearby to seal the demon that lived there, knowing he liked books and would read anything without question. When the demon fell for the trick of opening the book, only the "evil soul" was sucked in; what remained of the "good soul" became Sig's ancestor.
- Evil Is Sexy: Turns Klug from a stereotypical nerd to quite attractive after his Evil Makeover.
- Expressive Accessory: Both the Living Shadow and Klug's spirit have expressions alongside him, even matching his surprise when Sig and Raffina walk off with his items.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Added a charm and changed the time on Klug's stopwatch.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul
- Good Colors, Evil Colors: Not quite bloody red, not quite cherry, but knowing previous history in Puyo...
- Laser-Guided Karma: Inverted. The man who wrote Record of the Sealing stated that he didn't know what evil deeds the demon had ever done. If this is the case, he just lived alone in his castle, doing nothing noticeable until he was sealed away.
- Living Shadow: Has a giant red one that looks nearly identical to his form in the book.
- Loners Are Freaks: Record of the Sealing stated that he lived alone in his castle. Judging from how he acts, he really fits a description.
- Humanity Ensues: Reversed. He went from being "human" to a soul trapped in a book.
- Magic A Is Magic A: Defied. Even if we're never given a clear image of what the magic in this world is, all things that fly/float often have wings or "flying" in the name, like "magical flying cane" or characters like Draco, Harpy, and Satan. However, Strange Klug's book is floating without any source of magic around it.
- Milking the Giant Cow: His laughing sprite, as well as a few of his spells.
- Motor Mouth: In both Fever 2 and 20th Anniversary, he manages to fit in at least seven words within one or two seconds.
- Mythology Gag:
- Neat Freak: His special skill listed on Fever 2's website is "cleaning".
- Nerd Glasses: Large oval frames, just like Klug's. They're really an entirely different pair, though, even if they look exactly the same.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: He's never properly named, called "Demon" and "evil spirit" in Record of the Sealing , and is known only by Strange Klug. Sega apparently gave up trying to develop any story that spans multiple games.
- Our Demons Are Different: A bookworm that never left his castle. When trapped in Klug's book, his evil side looks like a Living Shadow.
- Popularity Power: He quickly became an Ensemble Darkhorse after appearing in Fever 2, with most fans liking him more than Klug.
- Power Makes Your Voice Deep: In Klug's body, his voice is a significantly deeper variant of Klug's.
- Power Floats: His final spell, Hydrangea, lifts him off the ground.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: For being covered with the color red, he's actually a blue oni; he's actually a lot calmer than Klug himself is.
- Rule of Perception: The only in-game difference between Klug and Strange Klug is the glasses they wear.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: One eye is almost always obscured by a flashed frame, and can be viewed as more unsettling than both frames.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Is a red spirit bound to the pages of a book, with its seal breaking being the driving plot of Fever 2.
- Shaped Like Itself: Played with. It takes Strange Klug to reveal his plans to both Raffina and Amitie for the two to realize that the man that looks like Klug that's wearing different colors and altered his outfit isn't exactly Klug... and yet they still call him Klug.
- Significant Birth Date: June 16 (6/16), the same birthday as Sig.
- Superpowered Evil Side: The demonic half of Sig's soul.
- Theme Naming: Played with. He shares Nebula and Ignis with Klug, but then uses Nyx. A new spell from 20th, Anima, can bring you to several different things. "Rubor Vini" is "Wine Red"; you can either take this as a color for red or a sin. His final spell, Hydrangea, he shares with Sig, but has a very different animation for it, with all of his power going into the demonic Living Shadow.
- This Is Gonna Suck: When he loses, he either looks to the sky and sighsnote or just sits down on the floornote . In the ending cutscenes for all the HaraHara courses, he doesn't yell or try and run away, but just seems to accept being sealed once more.
- Throwing Down the Gauntlet: Whines "Come back!" when Sig and the Ocean Prince just walk away after beating him.
- Unexplained Accent: In 20th's Mini Fever, Mega Fever and Pair Battle modes, he pronounces certain numbers differently than Klug, such as "ichi", "roku", and "hachi"note , pronouncing them as "ee-ch", "rouk", and "hah-ch" instead of "ee-chi", "rouk-u", and "hah-chi".
- Villain Ball: Says his plan out loud. Three times.
- The Villain Makes the Plot: Played With. He did create the plot for all the Hard Courses, and his defeat is the true resolution to the plot. However, freeing Klug is only done on accident, and really all Raffina and Sig wanted were the items he was using to power himself up.
- Wicked Cultured: He looks suave for a Puyo villain, owned a castle when he had a body and was a bookworm by nature.
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo FeverVoiced by: Takuo Kawamura (Japanese), Mark Atherlay (English, Puyo Pop Fever)A long autumn night underneath a beautiful moon... I'm so fond of it!
A student at Primp Magic School, Tarutaru is a lover of nature and all creatures, big and small. He is a good friend of Amitie, Sig, the Fever Birds, Baldanders, and especially Lidelle. For reasons unknown, he has not appeared in a mainstream game since Fever 2, although he did return for Quest.
- Beady-Eyed Loser
- Beware the Nice Ones: Only informed.
- Costume Evolution: Is the only student who didn't get this aside from Quest.
- Nature Lover: The only animal he dislikes are spiders.
- The Nose Knows / Smells Sexy: Thank goodness his nose is not keen enough to track Raffina.
- Popping Buttons: His blazer is unbuttoned.
- Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: Of Raffina.
- Theme Naming: Making a Splash, Blow You Away, and Dishing Out Dirt.
- Sequel Non-Entity: Aside from Quest, he hasn't appeared since Fever 2; Ms. Accord lampshades this in 15th by stating that he's absent from school. Following his disappearance, his character traits were decomposed and placed onto other characters: Sig became the easygoing boy, while Lidelle inherited his love of nature.
- Verbal Tic: "-(Na) n da na", the tic associated with stupid men.
Yu and Rei
- First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever (Yu), Puyo Puyo Fever 2 (Rei)Voiced by: Tamaki Nakanishi (Japanese), Giovani Pico (English, Puyo Pop Fever, Yu only), Cindy Robinson (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)Because I'm a ghost. We get the rights to terrorize people. Now, get ready for your final ride!Get ready.
Ghost twins that haunt the mansion in the middle of town. Yu's very upbeat and tends to overuse puns. Her younger brother, Rei, is very quiet and seldom speaks.
- All There in the Manual: Rei's presence was only informed in Fever, and Yu never once mentioned trying to look for him.
- Blinding Bangs: Rei.
- Catch-Phrase: "You rang?"
- Coordinated Clothes
- Creepy Twins: Comes in the territory of being ghosts, though with the exception of Ringo, other characters react to them differently depending on the situation.
- Demoted to Extra: In Puyo Tetris. Makes only one appearance in the main story, and in a dream, of all places. They only appear because Ringo accidentally thought of them.
- They show up again in the first DLC chapter (chapter 8), and manage to scare Amitie with their proposed horror show.
- Early Installment Weirdness: As mentioned above, Yu is a solo character in Puyo Pop Fever.
- Fog Feet: Yet, Yu tries to dance without actual legs. Raffina and Suketoudara point out this fact.
- Genki Girl: Yu.
- Ghost Amnesia
- Leitmotif: "The Ghost Twins Sure Are Popular!"
- And "You and I Are Fun Ghosts!" in 20th.
- Little Miss Badass: Yu.
- Luck-Based Mission: Like Harpy, they stack the left and rightmost columns with Puyo.
- Midair Bobbing
- Mundane Utility: In Quest, Yu & Rei, at 2★, 5★ or higher (As the lower ones show only either Yu or Rei), is the only character to be part of both Boys and Girls combinations. This gives Yu and Rei a unique role in that they can have Boys and Girls make combinations in the same decknote , which is impossible otherwise.
- Paper Talisman: Yu's weakness. She gets one placed on her forehead when she gets damaged.
- Parental Favoritism: Can be read; it's stated that Yu had an awful life when she was alive, but her younger brother had a wonderful life.
- Pop Quiz: Appears in Fever 2's story modes to give these out.
- She asks Amitie "Why are ghosts bad at telling lies?"Answer
- And she asks Sig two: "What yard are people buried in?"Answer , and "What kind of comb can you find there?"Answer .
- Punny Name: Their names together mean Yurei, or "Ghost".
- Pungeon Master -> Hurricane of Puns
- Purely Aesthetic Gender: Averted in Quest when it comes to combinations - their 3★ card, which only depicts Yu, is part of the Girls combination but not of the Boys one. Their 4★ card, which only depicts Rei, is part of the Boys combination but not of the Girls one. Their 2★, 5★ and 6★ cards, which depict both, are part of both the Boys and Girls combinations. They are the only characters to switch gender combinations on transformations.
- The Quiet One: Rei makes Sig look talkative in comparison.
- Reflectionless Useless Eyes: Because Yu is a ghost. Probably Rei too, but he hides his eyes with bangs.
- Rei Ayanami Expy: Being very quiet and young and having blue hair, Rei is a male example, though as a minor character, he doesn't get much development to show the similarities.
- Significant Birth Date: June 9 (6/9), which also makes them Gemini.
- Silly Spook: Yu is cheerful and punny.
- Support Party Member: In Quest, they are Recovery characters, with an Active Skill that recovers health of all cards and a Leader Skill that increases Recovery for all purple cards.
- Talking with Signs: Rei, in Fever 2, held up signs that either had an "O"(correct), an "X"(incorrect), or a picture of a puyo (when a match began).
- Twin Tropes: Dear lord...
- Half-Identical Twins
- Identical Twin ID Tag: Yu has green hair that lifts upwards like an Up-arrow. Rei has blue hair that covers his eyes, patterned like a Down-arrow.
- Polar Opposite Twins: Yu's very cheerful and loud, Rei's very quiet and depressed. It's implied they were vice versa when they were living.
- Theme Twin Naming: Their Punny Name.
- Trickster Twins: Not only are they ghosts, but they're jump you into a puyo match whether you answered their questions correctly or not.
- Twin Switch: Their wishes in 15th were both this. Sadly they canceled each other out.
Characters Introduced in Puyo Puyo 7
Voice Actor: Asami Imai (Japanese), Cassandra Lee (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
- Stage Actor: Yui KawamuraOh, come on! No Puyo, just this once!
The protagonist of 7 and more down-to-earth than Arle and Amitie. She constantly questions everything about the other two universes, but doesn't seem to mind her own weirdness.
- Art Shift: Notable for being the only character with an expression that has a rougher outline than normal. This being her Oh, Crap! reaction.
- Audience Surrogate: Mostly in 7, given her role as a normal girl that comes across all the weirdness of the Puyo universe. Much less so in later games as she's had time to get used to all the weirdness, and even shows off some of her own quirks.
- Badass Bookworm: She's very bright, and can kick ass all the same in Puyo Puyo.
- Badass Normal: To an extent. While she can use magic just like the majority of the cast, it can be implied that she's nowhere NEAR the level of expertise or power that most of them hold.
- Badass Unintentional: If it hadn't been for Arle, after teaching her how to play, suddenly being kidnapped and possessed, then Ringo would've never gone out on a limb and became good at the game.
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The redhead to the "A" Trio.
- But Thou Must!: Even if she doesn't want to play Puyo, she's forced to.
- Childhood Friends: With Maguro.
- Deadpan Snarker: Very much so, considering the wackiness of the rest of the cast...
- Deuteragonist: Puyo Puyo Tetris quite blatantly gives her this role next to Tee. By the end of the story, she's the one who faces off against the final boss...who became Tee, swapping her role with his at the last moment.
- Divergent Character Evolution: She uses Yu and Rei's dropset and stats in 7, but receives her own dropset in 20th.
- Expressive Hair: It freaks out when she does.
- Family Business: Andou Groceries, the store her parents own.
- Fire/Ice/Lightning: Subverted. She only uses lightning, compared to the other protagonists.
- Gender-Blender Name: A female name in Japanese, but male in English.
- Hair Decorations: Has one as a green Puyo.
- How Unscientific!: Said nearly verbatim in 7's story mode.
- The Hyena: Her Chronicle alt. voice has her in a constant giggle fit.
- Idiot Hair: The Expressive Hair in question. Well, one of them.
- Instant Expert: She gets to playing (and winning!) Puyo within seconds of learning it in 7.
- Leitmotif: "Puyo Puyo no Uta."
- "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Asami Imai sings the vocal version.
- Magical Gesture: She uses the Fleming's left/right-hand-rule in her spells.
- Mega Twintails: The other half of her expressive hair.
- Modesty Shorts: While not visible at all in art, she does sport a pair on a figurine.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Good job telling Ecolo to make people happy with Puyo when he has amnesia! Surely nothing could go wrong when you have the power to flood the universe in Puyo!
- Oh, Crap!: Her face is a particularly spectacular one across her appearances, often Played for Laughs. When it's not though, it happens when...
- 7: Ecolo plans to cause a universal puyo-pocalypse.
- 20th: Ecolo posses Satan, causing space-time to go out of control.
- Puyo Tetris: The Spaceship Tetra has completely lost control, inevitably causing a crash landing towards her school.
- Only Sane Girl: When you question the very nature of the game itself, she's even above Arle for sanity.
- Punny Name / Stealth Pun: She's always carrying an apple with her.
- Serious Business: Ringo doesn't understand how Puyo became this in 7 to a point of a Running Gag.
- Theme Naming: With her spells. Sine, Cosine, Tangent, Integral, and Permutation are all mathematical concepts.
- Super Senses: She says she can sight the Andromeda Galaxy in the daytime. That means she has 20/4 vision.
- Throw the Book at Them: Her attack, Integral, makes her slam a book down.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Tee. She's the most affected when she realizes they have to part ways once the conflict is over, but she resolves herself by saying they will eventually meet again, as Puyo matches have the side effect of random world hopping.
- Unusual Euphemism: Has some with... math terminology? She changes "are you out of your mind" to "are you out of your vector", for instance.
- Unwitting Pawn: Thanks to her following the hidden agenda Ecolo had, she almost doomed the world.
- Visual Pun: She's always carrying an apple. Ringo means "apple" in japanese.
- What Beautiful Eyes!: As Rulue mentions, she sure has good eyes.
- Wicked Witch: As Poison Ringo, who carries a basket of poison apples. Though, in Puyo Quest, she is described to be someone with "Ringo's spitting image".
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: If Yu and Rei's story in 20th is any indication, she's terrified of ghosts. Ringo confesses that she got her fear from her grandma's ghost stories scaring her when she was little. Funnily and ironically enough, she's into the paranormal.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Roughly Grade B in 20th.
Voice Actor: Mie Sonozaki
The main villain in Puyo Puyo 7, she is actually the real Arle being possessed by Ecolo. Her personality is nothing like the host's or the guest's, as she shows little emotion.
- The Chessmaster
- Demonic Possession
- Empathy Pet: Parodied; Carbuncle was just enjoying acting dark with her.
- Fighting from the Inside: She temporarily breaks free of the possession and asks Ringo to stop her.
- Ghost Memory: She knows how to lure her friends out and even calls Carbuncle "Kaa-kun" when she's really Ecolo in Arle's body.
- Giggling Villain
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: At 6* she has malicious-looking eye gleams.
- Gotta Get Your Head Together: Before turning into Dark Arle.
- Man, I Feel Like a Woman: Discussed by Satan."Was that all you used Arle for? Or was there... something else?"
- Mind-Control Eyes: Of the Reflectionless Useless Eyes variety. Apparently it has been Retconned to be Dull Eyes of Unhappiness, since it got lost when she got redrawn for Puyo Quest.
- Leitmotif: "Insanity of Dark Arle", which has pieces that resemble Doppelganger Arle's battle theme.
- Obviously Evil: To the point 7's story mode does not even try to hide the fact she's evil, given her Mind-Control Eyes, her robes, her lower voice pitch and her personality.
- Paint It Dark Blue
- Palette Swap: The robes switch between green (Chibi) and red (Deka) in Daihenshin, with dark blue being her default color.
- Spoiled by the Manual: What happened to Arle? Well, it's stated outright in the manual.
- The Stoic
- Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome
- Voices Are Mental: As she drops the act in 7. This is brilliantly averted in Puyo Quest, where she really sounds like Ecolo speaking with her voice.
Voice Actor: Akira Ishida (Japanese), Spike Spencer (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
- All worlds! All universes! All of everything! And you silly people too! All shall be buried in Puyo!!!
A blob-like space-time traveler with an extremely playful disposition. He is the main cause of Puyo 7's storyline, revealing himself after surrendering possession of Arle at the climax. What is his plan exactly? A Puyo-induced universal apocalypse. In 20th, he gains an alternate humanoid version named "Unusual Ecolo".
- Aesop Collateral Damage: Playing tricks isn't good, but playing matches is! Then you possess Satan to make your point...
- Affably Evil: He's very goofy and playful at heart.
- :Apocalypse How: [[spoilerAttempts a Universal in 7.]]
- Autobots, Rock Out!: Both, themes in 7.
- Beware the Silly Ones: But don't forget the fact he's capable of blowing the world up with Puyo.
- Big Bad: In 7 and the final story mode in 20th.
- Big Damn Heroes: At the end of Puyo Tetris with Satan, to Ex.
- Bittersweet Ending: At the end of 20th Anniversary, Ecolo remembers everything; that he's a spacetime traveller with no time or place to call home. He decides to go travelling again, saying that he had fun and that they'll see each other again, although they probably won't remember him.
- The Chessmaster: Especially when you take into account that he tricked Ringo into practically dooming the world by getting her to play seven Puyo matches that would open a rift in space-time.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Has shades of this when he saw Maguro and Ringo having (what he thought was) an inappropriate conversation.
- Comes up again in Puyo Tetris when Ringo and Tee interrogate him. He completely ignores Tee's questions and only answers Ringo, and even sticks his tongue out when Tee can't take a hint. In Chapter 10, he shows up in Ex's (actually Tee's) dream only because Ringo was there.
- Curtains Match the Window: As Unusual Ecolo, if you subtract the pink pupils.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Although he may be a dark creature, he's not really that evil. He's just really playful and wanted to have fun with Ringo.
- Demonic Possession: He's possessed both Arle and Satan on separate occasions and wanted to do the same to Ringo.
- Dissonant Serenity: Always smiling, always playful.
- Dual Boss: With Satan at the end of the last story in 20th.
- Eldritch Abomination: Some kind of sentient space creature that can possess almost anyone effortlessly, can control people at a distance, cannot be remembered by humans for very long, and can rifle through people's memories without a care in the world.
- The End of the World as We Know It: THREE TIMES! Once in 7 with a Puyo flood, again in 20th from collateral damage, and YET AGAIN in Chronicle with a pendant that spawned someone else that would've done the apocalypse instead!
- Exotic Eye Designs: They even change shape to hearts or stars!
- Final Boss: Of Puyo 7.
- For the Evulz: HOO BOY Ecolo, you have one heck of a track record here, nearly causing an apocalypse in about every game you've been in!
- Giggling Villain: This is Ishida we're talking about.
- Greater-Scope Villain: He's the one that gave Ally the pendant that spawned Rafisol in Chronicle.
- Humanity Ensues: As Unusual Ecolo. The Audio Adaptation implies it that it is his attempt to solve his Inter Species Romance with Ringo.
- Large Ham: As Unusual Ecolo.
- Man Behind the Man: Behind Arle.
- Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: Well, he doesn't really destroy anything big, but he did cause a rift in space when he possessed Satan in 20th.
- Mind Screw: Very close to What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?. Among stealing animations from Ringo, Feli, and Klug, (Arle and Amitie's in 20th Anniversary) Unusual Ecolo is full of this. For instance, one of Unusual Ecolo's animations has him blasting into the sky like a rocket.
- Motor Mouth: His English Alt. Voice in Puyo Tetris makes him sound like he jumped straight out of the Speed Racer dub.
- Mr. Exposition: In Tetris he tells Ringo the means to reach the Keeper of Dimensions, and also gives Ex an explanation about the dream world.
- The Nicknamer: Justified in that he knows no one's names except for Ringo's. Some examples include "Tail Fly Girl" (Draco) "Miss Straight Bangs" (Feli) and "Pointy Hat Girl" (Witch).
- No Biological Sex: Puyo Quest does not register Ecolo to neither Girls or Boys combination sets, implying this trope is in effect. Though, for the most part, Ecolo is referred to with male pronouns.
- Not Me This Time: Like with Satan, he's not the cause of the Puyo and Tetris worlds clashing. The fact that he "runs away" as soon as he's spotted by Ringo doesn't help matters, but in the end, he ends up passing it off as hide-and-seek anyway. Once he's finally caught and defeated however, he finally reveals the true culprit to be someone with similar powers to his: the guardian of space-time, and gives a hint that "a lot of Puyo AND Tetris power is needed to reach the end of space-time and meet him".
- Obviously Evil: Ecolo seems to have that opinion on himself. When Ex completely trusts on his explanation of the dream world, Ecolo wonders if Ex knows he's not exactly trustworthy.
- Omnicidal Maniac: In 7. Not so much in 20th, where he's more of a Well-Intentioned Extremist.
- Perpetual Smiler: And is always drooling, too.
- Spell My Name with an "S": A particularly egregious example. There's been much dispute whether it's "Ekoro" (a straight romanization) or "Ecolo" (from the fan translations). Game files imply it's the latter due to his files being labeled with "ECO", but the 25th Anniversary Book spells it as "Ecoro". The official English localization of Puyo Tetris puts it to rest using the Ecolo spelling.
- Technicolor Eyes: Unusual Ecolo's eyes are sky blue with pink bubbles for pupils.
- Terms of Endangerment: "Arley" and "Ringie" for his targets, and "oji-san" or "oji-sama" for Satan.
- Theme Naming: With his spells. "Liar", "Swindle", "Fake Speech", "Lovely Trick", "Imitation"... The localization of Puyo Tetris translates these as him name-calling the opponent. "You cheater!" "You liar!" "What a fraud!"...
- The Villain Makes the Plot: Causes just about everything in 7.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Is noticeably nicer in Puyo Tetris to Ex. May be justified given both are in similar positions: loners in time-space.
- Trying Not to Cry: His voice cracks at the end of 20th Anniversary though as he says his goodbyes.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He just wants to have fun, but his way of achieving that gets pretty destructive... Such as in 20th Anniversary, where he possesses Satan to harness his power, causing a rip in dimensions.
Voice Actor: Kenichi Ono (Japanese), Kyle Hebert (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
- You can touch as much as you want... little girl.
An older student that ran the science club. After an accident in the lab, he apparently became a full-on bear wearing clothing obsessed with love. ...No, this isn't the weirdest thing about him.
- Badass Normal: Notable for being one of the few characters who don't explicitly use magic in battle, yet can hold his own against the rest of the cast. In his case, he simply utilizes explosive chemicals rather than magic.
- Battle Butler: As an adult.
- Butt-Monkey: In Tetris, several characters try to dissect Risukuma to know what he really is. He narrowly avoids those attempts.
- Creepy Good
- Divergent Character Evolution: He uses Onion Pixie's dropset and stats in 7, but receives his own dropset in 20th.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Then again, his foot paws are too big to fit in any shoes.
- Education Through Pyrotechnics: Almost all of his spell animations utilize explosive beakers, indicating that this happens a lot.
- For Science!: Perhaps.
- Gratuitous Foreign Language: English, Korean, French, and Italian initially, then adds in Chinese and the Hawaiian expression of "I love you." in Puyo Tetris. Yes, he says "I love you." all of those languages.
- Improbable Weapon User: Uses explosive beakers in battle, unlike the majority of the cast who utilize magic.
- Labcoat of Science and Medicine
- Leitmotif: "This Experiment, Life".
- Love Freak: It's stated that, pre-7's story, a potion he was working on exploded and made him obsessed with it.
- Machine Monotone: His alternate voice in 20th.
- Nice Job Blowing It Up, Hero: How everyone in 7, including Ecolo, ended up in Amitie's world.
- Petting Zoo People: The science experiment gone wrong before 7 most likely turned him into one. Though Puyo Tetris debates whether his appearance is actually the result of an experiment gone wrong or a costume.
- Punny Name / Stealth Pun: He didn't take risk when he tested that potion, possibly turning him into a bear. A squirrel-bear, rather.
- Sempai/Kohai: To Ringo and Maguro. In the first place, his official name is "Risukuma Senpai".
- The Unintelligible: Whenever he gets especially riled up, his speech degenerates into absolute nonsense.
- Unstoppable Rage: He's seem rampaging in 7 often and in some occasions in 20th. In 7, it might be due to Ecolo trying to control him.
- The 20th Anniversary website reveals that an invention of his, the "Unscientific Matter Detector", beeped at him. His response was to blow up a flask and trash the machine.
Voice Actor: Yuuki Ishikari (Japanese), Spike Spencer (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
- Well, the truth is... something's controlling me! I'm so ashamed~. How am I supposed to whisk Takoyaki batter if my body would rather do something else?
The "fashionable" elder son of the local fishmongers. He's sarcastic and weird, but remains close friends with Ringo.
- Badass Normal: Notable for being one of the few characters who don't explicitly use magic in battle, yet can hold his own against the rest of the cast. In his case, he simply defends himself with his kendama.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: As an adult.
- Bishounen: See "Blinding Bangs" below.
- Blinding Bangs: According to Ringo, she says he has an incredibly handsome face. Unfortunately we never see it.
- So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Also according to Ringo, he can make anyone fall in love with him with a single glance. Even boys. (100% Klug-tested.) EVEN FISH. (120% Suketoudara-tested.)
- Also, a Drama CD track has Ringo reveal that at one point she believed Maguro to be descended from gorgeous demons. Cue Incubus speculating that he and Succubus are long-lost relatives of Maguro, much to Succubus' annoyance.
- Childhood Friends: With Ringo.
- Divergent Character Evolution: He uses Donguri Gaeru's dropset and stats in 7, but receives his own dropset in 20.
- Family Business: He's the son of the town fishmongers.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: His Adult form's clothing is half gray, half black, split right down the middle. Certain accents on the outfit even reverse the two colors.
- Idiot Hair: As a child.
- Improbable Weapon User: Similar to characters like Risukuma and Rulue, Maguro doesn't necessarily uses magic to battle. Instead, he uses a puyo-themed kendama instead of magic or science.
- Leitmotif: "Charming Glance".
- Perpetual Grin
- Punny Name / Stealth Pun: Gets slapped with tuna when he gets damaged.
- Purple Is the New Black: His hair color.
- Renaissance Man: Downplayed. He has a lot of hobbies, leading to him having decent knowledge about several areas. His dream in Everyone's dreams coming true!? zig-zags the trope - every time Maguro thinks of a hobby, another Maguro, who is The Ace in said hobby, shows up. This means Maguro dreams of being a more straight example of the trope.
- Ridiculously Average Guy: Maguro stands out among the rest of the cast by being the most "normal" of all characters. Even his spells - kendama techniques - are mundane in comparison (compared to the likes of those like Risukuma, who at least uses explosive beakers and Rulue, who uses martial arts), but they stand out precisely because of how mundane they are.
- Say It with Hearts: Stars, rather. ★
Characters Introduced in Puyo Puyo Tetris
Voice Actor: Kaoru Mizuhara (Japanese), Max Mittelman (English)
The captain of Starship Tetra and the current ruling king of the Tetris Kingdom. He's very mindful of his manners, but that also makes him rather stoic. Tee first meets Ringo onboard when tetriminoes started raining down in Suzuran.
- Always Second Best: To the previous Tetris King, until he eventually surpassed him.
- Bait-and-Switch Boss: Thought Ex was going to be the Final Boss in the main story? Well, it's actually Tee.
- Book Ends: The story starts with him as the main character in the Starship Tetra and ends with him as the Final Boss, and - counting the DLC episodes - ends with him as the Final Boss once more.

- Deadly Disc: Wields one in his attacks.
- Everything's Better with Spinning: His spin attack and spinning chakram, as a reference to T-Spins.
- Expy: Of Ringo when it comes to understanding the rest of the cast.
- Final Boss: Of the main game and of the 10th Chapter (DLC only).
- Fish out of Water: Besides at first not knowing what Puyo battles were about, his dimension doesn't seem to have any sugary sweets of any kind, which amuses Lemres.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Thoughout the game, it's clear that he's the responsible sibling to Ess' Foolish Sibling (despite the fact they're not blood-related).
- Only Sane Man: Compared to the rest of the crew members and by extension everyone else (and Ringo), he's just about the only guy with his head straight.
- Purple Eyes: As the captain and current ruler, he's the strongest of the crew.
- Purple Is Powerful: As stated above.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man:
- The Manly Man to Ai's Sensitive Guy.
- The Sensitive Guy to Zed's Manly Man.

- The Stoic
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Averted. Unlike the other Tetris characters, he does not recycle AI or dropsets from the 20th characters that were Demoted to Extra.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: It's more or less implied he develops feelings for Ringo as the story progresses, and the feeling seems to be mutual.
Voice Actor: Mina Tominaga (Japanese), Cindy Robinson (English)
Tee's partner, and the ship's communications officer and mascot. He only ever utters "pi" or "bi" when speaking, but his cuteness keeps the crew in high spirits. He shares a parallel with Carbuncle, being yellow, animal-like sidekicks that don't speak with words.
- Animate Inanimate Object: Works as a transmitter of Tee's reports towards Ex.
- Artificial Stupidity: He has the weakest AI of the Tetris characters.
- Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Resembles a sun casting over a cloud.
- Cue the Rain: His lose animation depicts face down on the ground while a light drizzle hangs above him.
- Expy: The Tetris world equivalent of Carbuncle. Naturally they get along well in Tetris.
- Secret Keeper: Knew all along that the Keeper of Dimensions - Ex - was the sort-of Big Bad behind the plot of Puyo Puyo Tetris.
- Shock and Awe: Conjures up lightning bolts in his animations, akin to storm clouds.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Despite being an Expy of Carbuncle, he uses the same AI and dropset as Onion Pixie when playing Puyo.
Voice Actor: Yui Horie (Japanese), Eden Riegel (English)
The navigator of the Spaceship Tetra. Although she may look cute, this green-colored crew member is quite rude, bratty, and a crybaby. Even then, she is quite fond of her Papa.
- Berserk Button: Don't disturb her afternoon nap, Amitie learning this the hard way.
- Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: For her innocent looks, she can give Elle and Jay a run for their money when it comes to be a Jerkass.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish sibling to Tee's responsible Sibling
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: As much as a jerkass Ess can be and how lowly she can think of nearly everyone else, she absolutely adores her Papa.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: Her counter animation, along with Dramatic Thunder
- Hates Being Alone
- I Am Not Your Father: Inverted in Chapter 10, where she cheerfully calls Zed her "Papa". In front of Ex, her actual father, who does not take it very well.
- Inelegant Blubbering: One of her portraits during the story mode gives her a rather melodramatic crying face.
- Jerkass: Ranging from trying to beat Amitie over the head to her various antagonizing remarks, she makes Klug and Raffina look like an angel.
- Parasol of Pain: She uses her parasol for a few of her attacks.
- Parasol of Prettiness: She also carries it around as an accessory in cutscenes.
- Parental Abandonment: By the end of Chapter 6, she shows a bit of distress over who her real Papa is.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She uses the same AI and dropset as Lidelle when playing Puyo.
- Theme Naming: Her attacks are all different forms of pampering and prettying up.
- Tsundere: She is noticeably less of an ass around Maguro, and Jay and Elle poke around this in the Japanese script.Elle: Hard on the outside!
Jay: Soft on the inside!
- What the Hell, Hero?: She scolds Tee for supposedly abandoning her and leaving her alone.
Voice Actor: Yuuki Tai (Japanese), Joe J. Thomas (English)
The ship crew's engineer, I is a dog with extremely high intelligence. Despite this, he's quite skittish and is easily undermined into a whimpering mess. He's also often picked on by Jay and Elle.
- Birds of a Feather: With fellow science human-animal Risukuma.
- Butt-Monkey: It's implied he's constantly tortured by Jay and Elle.
- Expy: Of Risukuma, both are intelligent people with animal heads.
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: He easily gets turned into a whimpering mess if startled. Elle and Jay naturally exploit this for their amusement.
- Hypno Pendulum: Subverted since he's never shown inducing sleep.
- Petting Zoo People: A humanoid dog. Specifically a chihuahua.
- Machine Monotone: His alternative voice set in the Japanese version.
- Self-Made Man: When Ex meets him in a dream, he comments that Ai used to be a little runt until he grew up into the person he is today.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Sensitive Guy to Tee's Manly Man.
- The Smart Guy: As expected from the engineer. He's the one that repaired the broken-down ship.
- Theme Naming: Reminiscent of Risukuma's Love theme, his spell names are all different ways of calling something beautiful. In Japanese, he uses different languages, including Hawaiian.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He uses the same AI and dropset as Donguri Gaeru when playing Puyo.
- Luck-Based Mission: Because of the above.
- Verbal Tic: His alternate voice set in the English version has him much more in touch with his canine side.
Jay & Elle (J & L)
Voice Actor: Kathreen Miyuki (Japanese), Wendee Lee (English)
A mischief-making duo, acting and speaking in sync with each other. You never see these two separate, and are often picking on Ai just for kicks.
- Brother–Sister Team
- Creepy Twins: Their alternate voice gives them a dull monotone, invoking this.
- Character Tics: They often hold their hand up to form a J and L respectively with their fingers.
- Finishing Each Other's Sentences
- Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Inverted. One animation depicts Elle punching and another depicts Jay shooting a fireball.
- It Amused Me: They often pull pranks for no particular reason other then to have fun, Ai being their normal target.
- The Load: Every other crew member has a role to do to work. What do these two do? They're just there to "liven things up" with their pranks.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Elle wears red/pink, Jay wears blue.
- Sibling Team: They're twins no less!
- Theme Naming: Their spells have names referencing mischief and/or pairing.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: They use the same AI and dropset as Yu & Rei when playing Puyo.
- Luck-Based Mission: Though not to the extent as Ai.
- Trickster Twins: Ai happens to be an easy target.
Voice Actor: Ryunosuke Watanuki (Japanese), Joe J. Thomas (English)
The intimidating, but dutiful robot housekeeper of the ship. He mistakes Arle and Carbuncle as troublemakers, but was convinced otherwise. For some reason, Ess calls him "Papa".
- Beware of the Nice Ones: He gets rather scary if you deny following his orders.
- Chef of Iron: Several of his attack animations depicting him attacking with food.
- Gentle Giant
- Parental Substitute: To Ess. Ex made him that way when he left the throne to guard the Space-time Gate.
- Robot Maid: The designated housekeeper.
- Neat Freak: He's very passionate about his job to the point of being scary to others.
- Secret Keeper: Knows that Ex is Ess' father, but Ess herself grew up with the idea that Zed was his "Papa," which apparently didn't sit well with Ex when he found out.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to Tee's Sensitive Guy.
- Theme Naming: His spells are all different things conducive to healthy living (Vitamins, Minerals, Protein, Fiber Sleep, Healthy Living)
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He uses the same AI and dropset as Ocean Prince when playing Puyo.
- Vocal Dissonance: He has a rather sappy dramatic voice as an alternative voice set.
Voice Actor: Kazuki Yao (Japanese), Matthew Mercer (English)
The former king of the Tetris Kingdom, and the Keeper of Dimensions. He's incredibly laid back, but has grown quite lonely at the Gate of Dimensions.
- Ambiguously Brown: Notably, he's one of very few characters that have this as a natural color, and not something like Strange Klug's case.
- Artificial Brilliance: His AI is on par with the other "boss" characters Satan and Ecolo.
- Bait-and-Switch Boss: He's not the final opponent in the main story. That's Tee.
- Berserk Button: Don't let him know his creation utterly replaced him as a paternal figure to his own daughter.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Yes, he does act a bit silly - as shown with him flailing his arms wildly while pulling off combos - and laid-back, but being the Keeper of Dimensions is no trifling matter. Even Ecolo says Ex's power surpasses his!
- Brain Bleach: Poor Ex was horrified upon hearing Satan dreaming aloud of a honeymoon with Arle on the Spaceship Tetra. It takes Satan realizing Ex was eavesdropping to snap him out of it.
- Disappeared Dad: He's Ess's father, but when he had to take the mantle of the Keeper of Dimensions, he built Zed as a Parental Substitute. That idea had Gone Horribly Right - when Ex meets Ess in Chapter 10, she doesn't even recognize him.
- Gone Horribly Right: He is the one who designed Zed to look after Ess. Unfortunately, this worked a little TOO well and ended up making Ess believe she was related to Zed and had no real blood father. Zed is not pleased one bit.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: He reveals he is Ess' father in Act 10, but she doesn't buy it.
- Meaningful Name: The letter X is generally used in Japanese media to indicate a crossover. Given that he's the one responsible for the worlds of Puyo Puyo and Tetris combining, it's a very apropos name. That being said, if you were to put a single block over a flat T-Tetrimino, you'd get an X-Tetrimino (which can happen in-game if one is afflicted with the "Pentominoes" item effect), further strengthening his relation to Tee.
- Not So Different: To Ecolo. They're both loners in space-time.
- Older Than They Look: He looks like a young adult but he's old enough to be Ess' father.
- Remember the New Guy: Hand Waved. Tee didn't think to talk about him because people belonging to no particular world can't be remembered.
- Rummage Sale Reject: Frilled dress shirt, suspenders, and...spacey balloon pants, boots, and gloves?
- Theme Naming: As with T, most of his spells reference Tetris terms, (including speed up and hard drop), with his last spell (Revolution/Rotation X) being something of an alternate form of Tee's T-Spin theme.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: Should be a hint on not to take him lightly.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He uses the same AI and dropset as Ms. Accord when playing Puyo.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: The only character introduced in Tetris that's not based on a Tetrimino.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Due to his wavering emotions from being a hermit, his power slipped and caused the Puyo and Tetris worlds to merge. He inadvertently incited the entire plot of Puyo Puyo Tetris.
Characters Introduced in Puyo Puyo Chronicles
Voice Actor: Honoka Inoue
A self-proclaimed adventurer that is looking for a prophesied hero, who helps Arle and Carbuncle return to their home world. She believes that everything can be solved using the power of love.
- Catch-Phrase: "Let's get intimate!"
- Early-Bird Cameo: Ally makes an appearance in Quest before her official release in Chronicle, via the "Ally's Impossible!? Adventure" Story Quest.
- Heart Beatdown: Her two spells "Brave Heart" and "Love Shine." The former is shooting a heart, the latter being a ring of it.
- Mysterious Waif: She's specifically described as mysterious, and her goal is to find a "prophesied hero".
- Redhead In Green: She has red hair (albeit a bit more orange than Ringo's), and wears a green dress.
- The Power of Love: Her Puyo Quest and Chronicle skill is "Love All", and it's also evident in her catch phrase. Her victory pose in Chronicle is even her holding out a heart. She can easily put Risukuma's "I love you." chain theme to shame.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Like past characters with complications over the letters "L" and "R", she's been called Arie, Alie, and Allie. Pieces of merchandise say Ally is the intended spelling, but since Allie (which was the listed spelling prior) is a legitimate variant of the name, the latter is technically not incorrect.
- Theme Naming: Her name continues the tradition of protagonists with the letter "A" incorporated in the start of their name, like Arle, Amitie, and Andou Ringo before her. Oddly enough, she lacks an R and S companion like the other A's before her.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: That pendant she has? It's actually an Artifact of Doom that inverts love power which leads to the creation of Rafisol. And since Ally is all about the power of love, this is completely inevitable. Why does she have it? ECOLO GAVE IT TO HER.
Voice Actor: Mao IchimichiAlly's evil clone, spawned from Ally's pendant. As a being born into loveless existence, she believes she only exists to consume all.
- Big Bad: Of Chronicles
- Palette Swap: She is basically Ally with an entirely different set of colors and a couple of spikes on her hair. Her colors may seem all over the place, but they're actually Ally's colors inverted.
- What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: As she is spawned from the inverse of love, love is completely foreign to her.
Various types of monsters the player will encounter in the RPG mode. Each one has their own characteristics in battle.
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience
- Color-Coded Elements Often the colors represent a specific element.
- Expy: Rammits are this to Puyo.
- Status Buff: Wheeloo can raise their defenses by 25% against a specific color.
- Underground Monkey: Each enemy type comes in different colors/elements. For example there are green Wheeloo encased in stone, or blue Wheeloo encased in packed ice.
