This page contains a list of Puyo Puyo characters that were created by SEGA and made their debut in Puyo Puyo Fever (Puyo Pop Fever in international releases) and its sequel Puyo Puyo Fever 2. The aforementioned games were originally designed to serve as a Soft Reboot for the Puyo Puyo series, taking place in a completely new setting called Primp Town and centering around the town's magic school in particular.

These characters have a notably different flavor than that of Compile's Puyo Puyo cast, forgoing the borderline parody of stock Role-Playing Game monsters in favor of a cast more fitting of the saccharine Quirky Town that is Primp. Despite this, some characters share a couple of similarities to that of characters from Compile's run, be it personality, appearance, or abilities.

Protagonists

     Amitie 

Amitie

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_amity.png
Character Color: Red
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced by: Shiho Kikuchi (Japanese), Evelyn Huynh (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Christine Marie Cabanos (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris onwards)
Stage Actor: Rihona Kato

Let's play Puyo!

The protagonist of the Fever series, Amitie is nice, dreams of becoming a great magician, but is 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 her memory of 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. The Japanese version makes it a little more ambiguous whether she actually meant to talk about her feelings or something else, since she additionally brings up her magical red Puyo hat having a reaction to Sig lately.
  • Action Girl: While not as competent as Arle, she still goes the distance to set things right.
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: The Light Novels often portray Amitie as having some underlying confidence issues, to the point where she needs several pep talks from her friends to keep going and not talk herself down as useless. No such thing has ever occurred or even been implied with Amitie in the games (save for, possibly, 15th Anniversary, where she begs some of her opponents to go easy on her and Tetris 2, where she is so terrified of Dark Marle that she needs the support of her classmates to dare challenging her face-to-face). She even gets a Heroic BSoD in Puyo on Stage, where Raffina cuts into her confidence so deep, she loses all semblance of her cheer until Arle and Ringo perk her back up.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: In Puyo on Stage Amitie does a couple of things in her excitement over the search for the White Wishing Puyo that she would probably never do in the games, such as punching Klug in the throat for calling the legend silly (and threatening to give him the Japanese equivalent of a wedgie, too), repeatedly tickling people to get them to pay attention to her, act dismissive of anyone who even as much as suggests the Wishing Puyo might not be worth tracking down and even trying to sabotage Rulue in a Puyo match that Arle was trying to win fair and square. She never apologizes for any of this.
  • Age-Appropriate Angst: Spends a lot of time in Sig's Secret agonizing over whether she's reliable enough to manage the festival project she is working on with her friends and over whether or not Sig actually likes her as a friend or just finds her annoying. The way she describes being unsure of whether the fun she has hanging out with him is actually mutual because she can't read his emotions well is very relatable, especially to people on the autism spectrum or those who grew up having a friend on said spectrum.
  • Alternate Self: Early promotional material for Fever lightly hints that she is Arle's Alternate Universe Self. Whether the same might be true for other conspicuous Madou-Primp pairs, such as Rulue and Raffina isn't addressed.
  • Asleep in Class: Her story in 20th begins like this.
  • Backseat Gamer: Extremely guilty of this in Puyo matches in Puyo on Stage, where Ringo outright has to tell her to shut up and let her concentrate at one point.
  • Badass Adorable: Cute, sweet and powerful at Puyo battles.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Her response to Ringo telling her about Maguro's "Beauty Beam".
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The blonde of the "A" Trio.
  • Book Dumb: She's a competent magician and no one doubts she will become a great one someday, but she's always in need of supplementary classes... and it's implied she does badly even in those as well. This becomes a plot point in Puyo on Stage, where her poor academic performance tempts her into taking a shortcut by using the White Wishing Puyo to increase her magic skill and power.
  • A Boy and His X: A girl and her snow-white bird named Tama in Amitie and the Mysterious Egg. She finds Tama's egg in the forest one day, and ends up raising it like her own over the course of the story. After sighting a gigantic white bird in the sky, however, she grows torn over keeping Tama, or returning it to the wild.
  • Catchphrase: "Get real!"
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Her mind certainly flows differently.
  • Color-Coded Characters: All Primp students are designed to feature one of the five Puyo colors prominently in their designs. Amitie is the most blatant example, proudly wearing a red Puyo hat or beanie in all of her appearances.
  • Continuity Nod: Her official artwork for the Puyo Puyo Quest x Chain Chronicle collab shows Amitie with Accord's cane as her weapon of choice, in reference to Fever and the infamous cane search.
  • Covert Pervert:
    • As early as Fever 2 she thinks Klug is reading an adult magazine when a risque ad is printed beside the article he was actually reading.
    • In 7 she jumps to the conclusion Schezo wants a threesome with her and Ringo when he really wants some food.
    • She gets very excited when she thinks Maguro is going to show Ringo his... you know whats... and ends up disappointed when the "you-know-whats" was Maguro's face.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Is the main lead in a series of Puyo Light Novels. This actually helps her compensate for her lack of prominence as a main protagonist among her 'A' Trio peers, Arle and Ringo, both of whom have gotten far more focus as protagonists in the games ever since Puyo Puyo 7.
  • Demoted to Extra: In a sense. While Amitie is still very much a prominent figure in both the games and promotional material as a main protagonist (sharing said role with fellow 'A' Trio peers Arle and Ringo), she seems to have lost a bit of her relevance to the series' overarching plot once the main setting shifted to Suzuran in Puyo Puyo 7.
  • The Ditz: Amitie is known for her occasional cluelessness, laziness and lack of common sense.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: Initially, her spells were more or less copies of Arle's, but as the latter grew back in prominence (to the point of overshadowing Amitie herself), Amitie was gradually given a few more unique, differentiating spells of her own such as Cyclowhirl. In Champions, her moveset is entirely different save for Flame.
  • Dub Text: The Japanese version of Amitie's encounter with Sig in Chapter 6 of Tetris is far more vague and leans more towards teasing something about her Puyo hat, while the English version turns it into a straight case of Cannot Spit It Out.
  • Dumb Blonde: Blonde and a bit of an airhead.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: She was generally more tomboyish in Fever, mostly due to SEGA creating her to be an intentional Expy of Arle. In future games, she develops more into her own character, gaining a much sweeter personality in the process.
  • Easy Amnesia: Happened to her in 7. Ringo just had to lampshade it.
  • Expressive Accessory: Her hat will sometimes mimic her expressions. Justified in that it might be actually alive, going by Amitie's 20th story.
  • Expy: Of Arle (especially as she is portrayed in Shin Madou), to the point where Amitie shares Arle's signature Bayoen spell. The main difference between them is that where Arle is the Only Sane Girl (most of the time), Amitie isn't. In addition, she is usually much friendlier than Arle. Notably, SEGA flirted with the idea of some Divergent Character Evolution (see Theme Naming below).
  • First-Person Perspective: The Puyo Light Novels are told entirely from her perspective.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: In the usual Amitie, Raffina, Sig and Klug foursome, she's the obvious Sanguine representative, being the typical lively and happy-go-lucky extrovert with great social skills.
  • Genki Girl: Almost infectiously so.
  • Genius Ditz: What she lacks in general intelligence, she makes up for it with talent at Puyo.
  • God in Human Form: While rarely referred to these days, early promotional material for Fever explained that Amitie was a goddess in a previous life, but is unable to use her original power because it is shared with an unknown other person in a parallel world. A slightly more mature alt of her named "Red Amitie" appears in 20th and Quest, the latter game whose leader skill is called "Goddess' Prayer". This backstory is likely a parallel from her starting out as an Expy of the previous protagonist, since Arle had a quite similar backstory in the Madou Monogatari games, and the fact that Amitie's "other half" has remained unnamed thus far might hint that the two backstories were originally supposed to connect directly.
  • Good Is Dumb: She really means well, but is very, very scatterbrained at times.
  • Gratuitous Greek: Her spells Ekrixis and Aktína are this, meaning "Explosion" and "Ray" respectively in Greek. As this only applies to two of her many spells, it notably makes her the only currently playable Primp student without consistent Theme Naming to her spells, as all of Raffina's spells are in Gratuitous French, all of Klug's are in Gratuitous Latin, all of Lidelle's are in Gratuitous Italian (and relate to the weather), all of Tartar's spells are in English (and relate to natural disasters), and Sig's spells all relate to the color blue.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Very kind and friendly, even more so than either Arle or Ringo.
  • The Heart: She's basically this among the 'A' Trio, being the most likely between herself, Arle, and Ringo to be kind to her adversaries.
  • Hidden Depths: She can be quite perceptive of things from time to time. For instance, she's the only character that notices the similarities between Sig and the demon in Klug's book and does not think of them as a coincidence.
  • Iconic Item: Her red puyo hat. So much so that everybody will know you're talking about Amitie if you mention it. It's even iconic enough to be featured in Phantasy Star Online 2 and in Sonic Forces!
  • Idiot Hero: Easily the most dimwitted of the series' protagonists.
  • I'll Never Tell You What I'm Telling You!: After losing to Schezo in Puyo Tetris Act 9, she tells him that "No one's allowed to know he ran off to the ruins!" right after saying she swore herself to secrecy. Whoops.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: When participating in a beauty contest during Satan's Space Amusement Park, Amitie is revealed to not be all too 'fashion-conscious' as her choice of clothes for the contest clash SO badly that Ringo, Draco, and Witch all end up calling her out on her fashion sense.
  • 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.
  • Innocently Insensitive:
    • She makes a quip about Sig's anomalies spreading over the rest of his body in Sig's Secret, which to her shock, makes him visibly uncomfortable.
    • Later, in Tetris 2, she tells Ess out loud that Zed "isn't her real Papa". She clearly doesn't mean any malice by it and is just curious about Ess and Zed's relationship, but the statement still drives Ess into a trauma-induced rage fit.
  • In-Series Nickname:
    • Lidelle calls her "Ami-san".
    • In English only, Sig often calls her "Ami" as well.
  • Is It Something You Eat?: When trying to find more clues about the nature of her cap in 20th, the first thing that comes to her head is trying to eat it.
  • Japanese Politeness: Backfires when she perfunctorily says that she doesn't want the reward and Ms. Accord takes it literally.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Amitie is the sweetest of the three main protagonists and rarely ever gets mad at anyone, but she's also enough of an airhead to have a hard time during her magic classes.
  • Leitmotif: Fairy Fair in 15th, and "I'm Gonna Be a Great Sorceress!" in 20th.
  • Magic Staff: Red Amitie wields one.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane:
    • Everybody knows that Popoi is just a plain ol' puppet that Ms. Accord makes speak with magic, but she believes he is alive. He is. Is she Too Dumb to Fool, or...?
    • She can discern between Klug and Possessed Klug because they wear different glasses. She's either Comically Missing the Point, or...
  • Meaningful Name: "Friendship" in French; she's possibly one of (if not the MOST) the friendliest characters in the entire franchise.
  • Mercury's Wings: In her earlier appearances and her Quest outfit, her puyo cap has little decorative white wings on the sides.
  • Never Bareheaded: Never seen without her red puyo beanie.
    • A scene in 20th shows Witch trying and failing to take the hat off her head.
    • All of her Quest alts also feature her wearing headgear.
  • Nice Girl: The word "hate" doesn't seem to exist in her vocabulary. While she may call others out for some glaringly dumb moments (such as Klug's incredibly roundabout exposition in 20th) she doesn't even bring herself to dislike the series' assholes, no matter how much they rip into her. Also, unlike Arle and Ringo, Amitie almost never brings herself the role of a Deadpan Snarker.
  • Nice Hat: Her puyo cap, which makes her instantly recognizable.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between:
    • The Nice one with Klug/Raffina's Mean and Sig's In-Between. In fact, it's nearly impossible to find moments where Amitie acts as anything less than a bestie to whoever she is accompanying.
    • She could also be considered the Nice to Arle's Mean and Ringo's In-Between, being the one who's most likely to go along with the weirdness of the other characters and never really lashing out at anyone no matter how annoying, although the dynamic here is much more downplayed.
  • No-Sell: According to Schezo in the Light Novels, her red Puyo hat protects her and those close to her from certain kinds of malicious magic. For example, it prevented the Mist of Dreams from possessing and trapping her, as well as Ringo or Arle (as they were standing close to her at time) in a Lotus-Eater Machine. Amitie herself seems unaware of that property of her hat.
  • Parasol of Prettiness: Carries one as Stylish Amitie in Puyo Quest.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: The Pink Girl to Sig's Blue Boy, being the red Puyo representative of the students on top of often wearing pink.
  • Power Gives You Wings: As she evolves in Puyo Quest, she gets decorated with wings as displayed in her art for 4-star, 5-star, and higher rarities.
  • Primary-Color Champion: All of Amitie's ensemble is some variety of red/pink, blue and yellow. The sole exception is a green bracelet.
  • Puppeteer Parasite: An official 4-koma has Ringo finding out that "Amitie" is actually the Puyo hat, with the main body being just a human puppet. Thankfully, it was All Just a Dream.
  • Retcon: In the light novel Amitie and the Girl of Love, she doesn't know what amnesia is (she suffered from it in 7), and comments on how she'd feel if she forgot her friends.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The energy to Sig's savviness.
  • Ship Tease: As subtle as it may be, Amitie has gotten quite a bit of this with Sig ever since the latter's introduction.
    • In Fever 2, if the player happens to encounter the both of them simultaneously in one of the menu conversations, they discuss wanting the other to give them the Memory of Chu. Sig flat-out says "Can I pretend I didn't hear that?" when Amitie asks if he can give it to her as a gift when she becomes the best magician she can be.
    • Sig becomes oddly concerned about Amitie's well-being in her story in 15th Anniversary, wondering if her hands are hard like his and asking if he can take a look at them.
    • They both tag along to help each other in their 20th Anniversary scenarios.
    • In the English version of Puyo Tetris, Amitie herself even vaguely hints at her feelings for him, via her conversation with her memory of him.
    • In Chronicle, Amitie gets suspiciously alarmed when Ally declares that she 'loves' Sig (It should be noted that Ally's definition of love is... very broad, to say the least). She's only relieved after Ally clarifies that she's not IN love with Sig, but rather admires his love of bugs.
    • In Amitie and the Girl of Love, Amitie unconsciously comments on Sig's "beautiful" eyes and "pretty" hair, and even gets quite flustered when Sig himself begins to wonder out loud if he truly is in love with Amitie.
  • Signature Move: Fairy Fire (Fairy Fair/Fare) is in all of Amitie's appearances, usually being her penultimate attack. Except Fever 1, where it was her strongest attack over Bayoen.
  • Significant Birth Date: May 5, Children's Day. It represents her childlike demeanor, and her cheerful and friendly personality.
  • 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.
  • Theme Naming: Shares the Fire, Ice, Lightning theme with Arle, through Flame, Blizzard, Lightning Bolt, and Fairy Fair, a Pillar of Light attack, mirrors Arle's Heaven Ray. Amitie eventually traded out Blizzard for Blast Beat in 15th Anniversary, and then Cyclowhirl in 20th Anniversary. She also swapped out Lightning Bolt for Ekrixis in Fever 2, and then Aktína in 20th.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Raffina's Girly Girl, mostly in her initial debut.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak:
    • Even if her general attitude is somewhat boyish, she certainly has more feminine qualities compared to someone like Arle. For example, she usually wears clothes decked out with hearts and her overall clothing style primarily contains rather bright colors.
    • In Chronicle, she admits to Draco that she's always been fascinated by beauty pageants and would like to compete in one some day.
  • Totally Radical: Some of her dialogue in the English version of especially Fever. Some of it carried on into the 2017-onwards run of dubbing, though it's downplayed now. This is actually rooted in the Japanese version, where she also uses quite a bit of outdated 90s slang, such as "バッチグー" ("Just right!").
  • Trrrilling Rrrs: Her alternate voice in the English version of Puyo Puyo Tetris has her speaking in a British accent and rolling her R's, a reference to a section of the game's story mode where she and Ess speak in British accents for a battle. After the battle is over, Amitie suggests they should roll their R's next time.
  • Unwanted Assistance: Both at the giving and receiving end of this at seperate instances in Puyo Puyo on Stage:
    • Gives it to Ringo in a battle versus Schezo
    • Gets it from Klug in a battle versus Raffina.
  • Utility Party Member: In Quest, Red Amitie, having the exact same skills as Dark Sig, makes multiple color decks viable thanks to her HP and Attack boosting Leader Skills and powerful Attack boosting active skill (which stacks with her Leader Skill), resulting in her teammates becoming very powerful and difficult to take down.
  • Valley Girl: In the Fever English dub, complementing her gratuitous usage of Totally Radical. This is a bit ironic considering her rival Raffina is closer to this trope in terms of wealth and fashion-consciousness.
  • V-Sign: Her Victory Pose of choice.
  • We Really Do Care / "I Know You Are in There Somewhere" Fight: Tells Sig about how much she and their others friends in school love him in order to snap him out of being controlled by his demonic heritage in Sig's Secret. She's proven right a little later when it turns out Sig's absence the previous day had Klug and Raffina worried enough about him to work together on a uniform for him for their festival project as a present.
  • We Want Our Jerk Back: In Tetris, she expresses joy at when Raffina is freed from her brainwashing and returned to "her usual meanness levels".
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In Chapter 7 of Tetris, she calls Ess out on her lack of compassion for Ex and the loneliness that he suffered as the Keeper of Dimensions.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: To Schezo in chapter 9 of Puyo Tetris, in the second DLC chapter. She tries to protect Sig, but her attempt backfires spectacularly when she loses and accidentally tells Schezo where Sig went.

     Raffina (Raffine) 

Raffina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_rafina.png
Character Color: Yellow
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced by: Noriko Namiki (Japanese), Brett Walter (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Erica Lindbeck (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris onwards)
Stage Actor: Aya Kinoshita

So much for respecting the elderly... How dare you give me that attitude! Forget being nice, I'll just force you to tell me!

Raffina is the local rich girl of the town. She is a narcissistic girl who is known for looking down on the locals as "commoners", with a weak tolerance for anyone who gets in the way of her often selfish goals. Unlike the other Primp School students, she lacks magical abilities, but she tries to make up for it with her strong kicks.


  • Action Girl: Even more than Amitie.
  • 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: Very much so. Even with some mellowing out over the years, she retains a mean streak.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Zig-Zagged in that while the artstyle doesn't show it, she is considered very muscular in-universe, and several characters (herself included) consider her beautiful. Specifically Amitie, Klug and Rulue often comment on Raffina's alleged bulk. She also has a self-professed obsession with body building to the point that she almost exclusively eats protein-heavy foods, as revealed in Amitie and the Mysterious Egg.
  • Amplifier Artifact: Her pouch. At least, in Fever 1.
  • Amulet of Concentrated Awesome: Her pouch from Fever 2 onwards which, in turn, gave her flaws to her spellcasting.
  • Anti-Hero: She saves the day once in a while? She does. Heroic disposition? Nope.
  • The Artifact: Her status as Amitie's rival has grown to become this, since every game after Fever shifted the focus to her rivalry with Klug instead.
  • The Beautiful Elite: Not only is she fairly attractive, but she also owns quite the vast fortune.
  • Badass Normal: Raffina's magical abilities are very weak in comparison to the rest of the cast. She compensates for this by using her magical pouch artifact to convert her formidable martial arts techniques into offensive magic power. She can still kick you seven ways to next week even without it, seeing as she is still a trained martial artist.
    • Raffina is also shown to be capable enough to go toe-to-toe with Rulue in 20th Anniversary, who is a stronger and more accomplished martial artist than her.
  • 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. She was left a near-stuttering mess once he pointed it out.
    • According to Everyone's Dreams, Coming True?!, as much as she mocks and argues with Klug, she actually considers him her voice of reason, who reigns in her pride and prevents her from taking things for granted through his scathing comments.
  • Birds of a Feather: With fellow elegant martial artist Rulue. Though the meeting in 20th was brief, she felt a strong kinship with her when she only barely got to know her. Whenever Rulue and Raffina are seen together in later games, such as Chronicle or Tetris 2, they accordingly act like best friends, sharing a sort of sisterly bond.
  • 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. note 
  • Biting the Handkerchief: Should she be defeated in a Puyo match.
  • The Bully: Threatens to kick Donguri Gaeru if he loses to her in a Puyo Battle in the former's story in 20th.
  • Cherry Blossom Girl: As Sakura Raffina in Puyo Quest.
  • Color-Coded Characters: All Primp students are designed to feature one of the five Puyo colors prominently in their designs, though Raffina is by far the least obvious example, being more visibly clad in orange instead. With that said she does have a decent amount of yellow in her design and is also a yellow card in Quest.
  • Damsel out of Distress: She finds herself captured and placed in Dr. Eggman's magic extraction facility, during the Puyo Puyo collab event in Sonic Runners, but breaks herself out and even takes Sig along for the escape, before the same could happen to him.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Downplayed in recent installments due to Flanderization.
  • Demoted to Extra: Among Primp's ARS trio, she was hit the hardest with this. Once one of the main protagonists of the Fever games, she lost a lot of her relevance once the series shifted to Suzuran and her rivalry with Amitie had all but nearly disappeared. Meanwhile, Amitie managed to retain her protagonism alongside Arle and Ringo, while Sig remains prominent enough in marketing and other official media, even if not so much in the games proper. It comes to the point that Raffina is often put at the same level as Klug, a supporting character from the start, in terms of importance.
  • Dub Name Change: Not her name, but her spells in the English version of Puyo Puyo Tetris, where all foreign attack names were changed to English names.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: She used to have pointed, elf-like shoes in Fever.
  • Expy: Of Rulue as an incredibly wealthy 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.
  • Foil: To Amitie and Klug:
    • Amitie's nice and friendly, Raffina's mean and rude. Both work to be strong magicians, but the former struggles in school despite having plenty of magic power, whereas Raffina has little of said power, but compensates for it by actually being a competent and hardworking student. She's also the trendiest girl in Primp, while Amitie is known for her horrible fashion sense, to the point Dapper Bones' opinion on both girls are at different extremes.
    • Klug and Raffina are unpleasant, egocentric jerks for the most part, and both seek fame and attention, but Raffina's aforementioned lack of magical power coupled with her martial arts knowledge contrasts Klug's meekness, yet magical talent and expertise. They also bring to mind the stereotypical imagery of the Alpha Bitch and her Nerd prey. Naturally, they're always butting heads.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: In the usual Amitie, Raffina, Sig and Klug foursome, she's a dead on example of a Choleric; hot-tempered and condescending towards others, but also a confident and determined hardworker.
  • 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.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: As feminine as she tries to present herself, she's a practitioner of not-so-ladylike martial arts and has moments of slipping into rather crass speech. In Japanese, she attempts to cover it up by ending her sentences with the feminine "desu wa".
  • Gratuitous French: Some of her spells and commonly-used phrases are in French.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She envies Amitie for her magical potential.
  • He Knows Too Much: She got to the castle faster than Accord predicted and found out the lost cane story was a load of baloney. She does her job of beating Popoi to reclaim the flying cane, and her "reward" was a mallet-induced memory wipe.
  • Idiot Hair: Not that she's anywhere close to being an idiot, though...
  • Irrational Hatred: She mocks nearly everyone she comes across. Defied by her relationship with Klug, where he very much deserves it.
  • I Take Offense to That Last One!: Possessed 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 Has a Point: In Puyo on Stage, when she puts a stop to Amitie's obsession with the White Wishing Puyo, by harshly pointing out that using it to fulfill Amitie's dream of becoming a "Wonderful Magician" would make her nothing but an impostor with a meaningless title.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: For all her faults, Raffina is guaranteed to have at least a few scenes that highlight she's not the terrible person others think she is.
  • Kick Chick: Downplayed. She is very proud of her legwork, but has plenty of fist attacks.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Her fighting style mixes physical attacks with magical power. Subverted in that the magic doesn't come from her own ability, but rather her pouch.
  • 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!"
  • Magically Inept Fighter: In contrast to fellow martial artist Rulue, Raffina bears some potential for magic, but she needs to have her pouch to do any sort of spellcasting whatsoever. It's uncertain how weak her magic is without it, but she's quick to turn tail when Lemres questioned her methods, making her weak magical power something of a sore spot for her.
  • 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". The former having her chase down the Moon Stone for its cosmetic magic which Lemres confesses is only temporary, and the latter going after the wishing medal for more beauty which is far too nebulous of a wish for the medal to even grant.
  • Nice Mean And Inbetween: She and Klug can both be considered the mean ones to Amitie's 'Nice' and Sig's 'In-Between'. In comparison to Klug herself, she's a nicer brand of Mean due to being a bit more aware of her own limitations and insecurities, meaning her heart of gold is likelier to show up in the right moment.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: "Oh hohoho!" Done when she enters Fever, and of course any time she laughs in general. Translated as "Oh la-ti-da!" in the English version of Puyo Puyo Fever, making it an unique Signature Laugh.
  • 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.
  • Odd Friendship: Surprisingly, despite their radically different personalities, she shares one with Sig. He still sometimes has to endure her outbursts himself, but Raffina is generally shown to be on good terms with him, which is strongly highlighted in her more amiable then usual win quotes in 7, if Sig loses to her in story mode. Sig's Secret also has her and Klug give Sig a rather sweet Pet the Dog moment in the final chapter, cementing this trope.
  • Ojou: Wealthy, prideful and ladylike (well, most of the time).
  • Pain to the Ass: Comes up in enough places to border on being a minor Running Gag:
    • She has been on the receiving end of this in all of her damage animations, starting with 15th, it also serves as her Top Screen icon in the DS and 3DS games, if she is close to losing.
      • The heavy damage variation in all games but Tetris combines it with Pain-Powered Leap. This is most apparent with her fully animated 3D model in Chronicle, which shows Raffina making a impressive leap, after getting her butt blasted by a magic projectile.
    • Zoh Daimoh makes a direct reference to said damage animation in 15th, when he threatens Raffina with a Literal Ass-Kicking.
    • Even the Pachislot get's in on this, with one event screen showing everyone doing a happy pose or one of their spell poses... except for Raffina, who instead does her damage pose.
    • An even earlier example occurs in Fever, where Raffina gets poked in the butt by Onion Pixie's spiky club.
  • Pet the Dog: She is genuinely apologetic towards Lidelle, once freed from Marle's corruption in Tetris 2, even if she tries to hide that care for her classmate not much later.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: The pink to Sig's blue, although you'd be forgiven for missing it considering Raffina wears copious amounts of orange and yellow as she represents the yellow Puyo.
  • The Rival: To Amitie, though Fever is the only game where it's really present, with later games preferring to focus on her rivalry with Klug instead.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Subverted. She has the hair, aspires to have her own prince, but is far from being sweet.
  • Sailor Fuku: Has the silhouette of one. Fever 2 is a very textbook example, while her current ensemble from 20th onward has a more stylized take on it. Her orange cardigan has the sailor's collar and tie, with the Puyo Tetris version adding cuffs to it.
  • Secondary Color Nemesis: Since she's Amitie's rival, she gets to employ lots of orange and purple in her design, even some green too going by her earrings.
  • Signature Move: Ciel Arc, the only spell of hers that has appeared in every game, and except for Quest, is her strongest attack in all of them.
  • Skewed Priorities: What makes her turn down Yu's offer to become a ghost in 20th is not the fact that she would die, but rather that she would lose her legs.
  • Sleepy Head: Her Puyo Tetris Japanese DLC voice consists of incredibly drowsy attacks, as well as yawning while under attack.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: Refined to a T, and has the highest swear count out of any other character in the series. In the Japanese version, she often tries to pull a Last-Second Word Swap when she swears by adding the polite "desu-wa!" to the end of her sentences (usually with a two-seconds-delay).
  • Sore Loser: Demands an apology when losing in Puyo Tetris.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Puyo Puyo Fever initially spelled her name as "Raffine", before Puyo Puyo Tetris finally changed it to "Raffina" to better match up with the Japanese katakana spelling of her name. It's likely that Sega (perhaps intentionally) got it wrong back in Fever.
  • Spell Theme: Gratuitous French, at least in Japanese.
    • Her first and third magics in Fever revolve around ice (Grêle, hail; and Avalanche), while Fever 2 makes it rain (Averse, shower), and thunder (Orage, thunderstorm).
    • Her second and fourth magics are fire/sun-based (Étincelle, spark; Feu d'Artifice, fireworks; and Rage Soleil, raging sun, in 15th).
    • And her ultimate magic is the Yin-Yang Bomb of the two: Ciel Arc, meaning rainbow.
  • Strong Girl, Smart Guy: With Klug, who is sorta her rival.
  • Those Two Guys: The Amitie-starring Light Novels tend to have her and Klug both play this role for a good chunk of their screentime. This may be a result of the stories focusing more on Amitie, her 'A' Trio friends and occasionally Sig.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Amitie's sort-of-Tomboy, although Raffina herself occasionally exhibits tomboyish qualities from time to time.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: It's very subtle, especially considering how she still has the occasional jerkass moment, but Raffina appears to have mellowed out somewhat following Fever 2. It becomes noticable in Tetris 2, where she apologizes to Lidelle for attacking her in a corruption-induced frenzy, openly praises others for their achievments and even quickly agrees to work together with Klug when the two of them find common ground.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Dogs, contrary to her profile stating she has no dislikes in particular. She's noticeably fearful in Baldander's presence, when the rest of the magic school behaves just fine in contrast.
  • With Friends Like These...: With Klug. They're usually seen together, but, due to their massive egos, their interactions rarely deviate from them both trying to exert their superiority over the other.

     Sig 

Sig

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_sig.png
Character Color: Blue
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Yuriko Fuchizaki (Japanese), Ben Diskin (English)
Stage Actor: Ayana

...Sorry. I zoned out.

Sig is everything but emotional. He's very quiet and isn't moved by anything at all, save for bugs. He's a very easygoing boy that doesn't mind that he's part demon. In reality, he's the other half of a demon that is currently residing in Klug's book. This part of the demon's soul was split off when it was sealed away in the book, which in turn created Sig's first ancestor. This is why Possessed Klug was determined to take down Sig in particular, and seemingly why Sig has such odd behavior and powers.


  • Accidental Misnaming: Tends to misname Raffina as "Wuffina"/"Rahena", or when corrected, "Waffina". In the English dub of Tetris 2, he scrambles it into "Ragamuffin".
  • Adaptational Villainy: While it isn't confirmed that the alternate personality that appears in Sig's Secret was supposed to be his Black Sig/Dark Sig-form, as both forms are described as having darker hair a lot of fans assume they were supposed to be the same, which would make it a case of this: While in 20th, Dark Sig was a darkness-themed Palette Swap of Sig with a more emotional demeanor, the alternate personality in Sig's Secret, is cold-hearted, violent and power-hungry to the point where Sig's actual personality is Fighting from the Inside.
  • Ambidextrous Sprite: Because of his red arm and eye, Sig is among the few characters in the series that require two sets of sprites to reflect their asymmetrical aspects.
  • Asleep in Class: One of Ms. Accord's victory quotes in 15th reveals that he has fallen asleep in class before. Not surprising, since he's already a known Sleepyhead in general.
  • 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.
  • Badass Adorable: A very placid and absent-minded boy, who for the most part, is only ever concerned about bugs and his friends. He's also a part-demon, with a lot of untapped power and has handily defeated his other half and Evil Counterpart, while being completely oblivious to the seriousness of the situation at hand.
  • Battle Butler: Fills this role while helping out Ocean Prince, in Fever 2.
  • Beetle Maniac: In official art for 15th and 7, he has a beetle on his head. For 20th Anniversary and Tetris 2, his shirt has a beetle on it.
  • Berserk Button: Hurting bugs in general quickly sours his mood. Attacking his favorite ladybug, however, causes him to go into a blind fury.
  • Big Eater: Lightly implied. Food is among the things that Ocean Prince offers to Sig, in exchange for his assistance and several of his post-match quotes in 15th's story mode, have him express hunger.
  • Blessed with Suck: While Sig's demonic ancestry gives him a list of traits other characters find very desirable, such as excessive physical and magical power, he personally finds it bothersome at best. It also has caused Schezo to attack him at least twice, and he generally acts uncomfortable when people stare at or ask about his demonic left arm. Sig frequently states that, while he can ignore his arm most of the time, he would not mind finding a permanent cure for it.
  • Blue is Calm: Sig has blue hair and is often seen wearing prominently blue clothing. He's far more calm and stoic compared to his fellow classmates Amitie and Raffina.
  • Book Dumb: Surprisingly Zig-Zagged. Flavor text for his Diligent Sig alt mentions that he has difficulties with studying, but can absorb information about bugs like a sponge and, as noted under Hidden Depths, Sig can actually prove himself to be quite bright when he puts his mind into something.
  • Bug Catching: His greatest passion.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Artwork for the Puyo Puyo Quest x Chain Chronicle collab that shows Sig in the visual style of the latter game, assigns him a stick almost as big as his body as his weapon of choice.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Though not as out there as Amitie, he is a little slow sometimes and gets distracted quite easily. One of his encounters with Arle in Puyo Puyo! The Medal Edition reveals that he also somehow mistook Carbuncle for a bug, until she corrected him on that one.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: Believe it or not, Sig actually has garnered quite a number of admirers, whether it be out of genuine admiration for him or more... shallow-minded reasons. 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 the Dark Prince and Lemres respectively, while Raffina has some... pretty interesting standards as to what she wants in a man.
  • Color-Coded Characters: All Primp students are designed to feature one of the five Puyo colors prominently in their designs. Sig took over as the blue student of the class once Tartar got Put on a Bus, to the point where even his spells are themed after it.
  • 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.
  • Composite Character: He is a bug catcher like Kodomo Dragon and is the male protagonist of his ARS trio like Schezo. He also has quite a bit in common with Arle, both are protagonists that are heavily associated with the color blue (which is even acknowledged in 15th), both are stuck in love triangles that they want nothing to do with and most strikingly, they both have a Evil Counterpart clad in red.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • His Deka form from 7 makes a brief appearance in the second Light Novel.
    • The Ecstatic Sig alt in Quest is full of these. It's not only a return of his original outfit, but the artworks for it reference his victory pose from 15th and 7 and a Fever 2 wallpaper respectively.
  • Creepy Monotone: As part of his stoic demeanor.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Dark Sig is no more malicious than normal Sig.
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • While still a major character even after his run as a main protagonist ended, Sig returns to a level of prominence not seen since the Fever era in Quest. He is heavily featured in promotional materials, shares a comfortable lead in alt. cards above the rest of the cast with Arle, Ringo and Amitie and has appeared alongside them and Carbuncle as a regular in the game's collabs with fellow mobile titles Pashamon, Kotodaman and Chain Chronicle, as one of only 5 Puyo Puyo characters to appear in every collab so far.
    • After spending most of the main story on the sidelines, Sig get's to be the Hero Antagonist in Chapter 9 of Tetris, which explores Schezo's interest in his demon arm, which was previously established in 15th.
    • Sig's Secret is one for him within the Light Novel series.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Gives off this vibe in the English version of Tetris, when his Creepy Monotone comes off as sass.
    Sig: (in a monotone) *Crowd-gone-wild-cheer*
  • Death of Personality: This almost happens to him in Sig's Secret. Amitie calls him back to reality in the nick of time.
  • Demoted to Extra: As mentioned above, he used to be a main protagonist, until his run as one ended with Puyo Puyo 7 deciding to change up settings. Sig plays minor roles in both 7, Tetris and Chronicle, getting dialogue in all those games, but having minimal importance to the plot. With that said, he is heavily featured in Quest and is the Hero Antagonist of one of Puyo Puyo Tetris' DLC chapters, along with having bonus content like his Dark Sig alt in 20th and a good amount of love in non-game materials, so he still has it much better than Raffina.
  • Depending on the Writer:
    • His attitude in regards to bugs getting eaten can vary a lot between games. His encounters with Donguri Gaeru in 15th and Kodomo Dragon in Quest show that while he's clearly uncomfortable with the thought of bugs as foods, he is still able to remain calm and even offer alternatives, while 20th and Chronicle have him get outright furious at the mere suggestion of eating bugs.
    • 15th and Sig's Secret strongly indicate that Sig may think more of his anomalies then he let's on, would gladly be normal again if he had the chance and finds the thought of them getting worse very uncomfortable. 20th goes the complete opposite route and portrays Sig as genuinely only concerned with how his red arm affects his ability to catch bugs. This becomes confusing when you realize that 20th and Sig's Secret had the same writer. A possible explanation is that his claim that he was satisfied with just using his other hand to catch bugs in 20th was just him giving up on the search for a cure once again (as he'd previously done in Fever 2 and 15th) because he'd gotten tired of the lack of success.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: His left arm is often stated to have gained considerable physical strength ever since mutating, and in 20th he talks about not wanting to use it to catch bugs, presumable out of fear of accidentally hurting them. Inofficial art by the games' current scenario writer also shows him almost crushing Klug's shoulder on accident while trying to ask him a question, the tweet said art is attached to stating that this is a regular occurence.
  • Dreary Half-Lidded Eyes: Since Sig is typically calm, stoic, and slow, he always has his eyes drawn with half-lids.
  • 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.
  • Dub Name Change: The localized release of Champions changes Black Sig to Dark Sig.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: Downplayed. In Fever 2, Sig's blue spirit bore a closer resemblance to the demon in Klug's book, even having arms to wave with. Every game starting with 15th would depict the spirit as a simple blob without any appendages instead, now looking more like Klug's spirit whenever the demon takes control over his body.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: His obsession with bugs is not brought up in the main story in Fever 2 and only plays a role in field-conversations with Rei and Amitie, which also show him willing to compromise on his hobby in order to help them out.
  • Expressive Accessory: Sig's spirit is shown to emote alongside him in Chapter 9 of Puyo Puyo Tetris.
  • Eye Colour Change: His original eye color was blue, but one of his eyes became permanently red when his left arm mutated into its current, demonic form. Additionally, his remaining blue eye has turned red in two separate instances: In Fever 2 when he was close to Possessed Klug and in Sig's Secret, when he lost control of his powers.
  • Festival Episode: His Sig's Festival Tour Story Quest is very much this. He even has a Yukata alt to go along with it.
  • Fighting from the Inside: Manages to fight back against his demon side during the climax of Sig's Secret, giving Amitie time to dump the potion needed to bring him back to normal over his head.
  • Flat Joy:
    • In the Audio Adaptation and novels, he has a very flat, fake-sounding laugh. Amitie is so used to hearing it that she knows he's sincere when he laughs like that, even though to the audience it sounds like he's being a Deadpan Snarker.
    • 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*
  • Foil: To Kodomo Dragon, both like to catch bugs, but unlike Kodomo Dragon Sig doesn't eat them and is greatly opposed to doing so. This is highlighted when the two meet in Quest.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: In the usual Amitie, Raffina, Sig and Klug foursome, he's a definite Phlegmatic, being kind, laid-back and empathetic towards his friends and all bug life, yet also hard to motivate.
  • Freaky Is Cool: It's a common theme for others to react to Sig's anomalies in a surprisingly positive way. The most notable examples are Oniko falling in love with him over his twitching Hair Antennae and Jaan admiring Sig's red arm to the point of aspiring to turn one of her own arms red as well.
  • Freakiness Shame:
    • Played With in his 20th story mode. After realizing he cannot catch bugs with his left hand, he begins to search for a way to turn it into something like his right hand, despite facing objections from the likes of Amitie, Feli, Raffina (because they found his red hand nice for different reasons), or Lidelle (because she thought there was a stronger reason to dislike the hand), and even nearly discovering his origins with Klug's help (only Amitie notices the coincidences between Sig and the demon in Klug's book). The problem is solved when Accord tells Sig to try to catch bugs with his right hand, something Sig had not even considered.
    • Implied and played more straight in 15th Anniversary and Sig's Secret. The former shows Sig asking Akuma if he knows a way to change his hand back to normal, while the latter has him become visibly uncomfortable when Amitie makes a joke about his anomalies spreading over the rest of his body.
  • Friend to Bugs: Though he also collects them.
  • Glowing Eyes: Starting with 20th, his red eye will glow when he uses his Hydrangea spell, which is notably, also the only time he uses his red arm for any of his attacks, further hinting at his partial demon heritage.
  • Good Counterpart: To the demon inside Klug's book.
  • Ground Punch: Performs one as part of his Cerulean spell.
  • 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?: Many characters have shown concern towards Sig's unique traits, such as his red left arm, his Hair Antennae, or the ghost that seemingly follows him. Sig himself does not care much (if at all), though, only complaining about his arm when it proved inconvenient when catching bugs.
  • Hair Antennae: Which twitch. In his earlier appearances, his antennae has also been shown to easily fall off and grow back within seconds, though this seems to have been dropped, starting with 20th.
  • Head Pet:
    • Has a cute ladybug living on his hair most of the time. It's apparently his favorite one too.
    • In 15th and 7, he has a Japanese rhinoceros beetle in certain sprites and artworks.
  • Heart Trauma: Implied. In the same book where you can find the history of Possessed 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 claiming his power.
  • Heroic RRoD: He starts going mad in Sig's Secret after getting a power-enhancing potion spilled on him. His body starts to show changes, turning both his eyes red and his hair darker.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Despite how indifferent he can seem at first, Sig is actually very dedicated to his friends. This comes up most often with Amitie, to the point where Sig is quick to go along with anything that she might be up to, while showing far less motivation for things that mainly concern himself. His interactions with Arle in 15th also show a very empathetic side of him.
    • While certainly slow at times, Sig has also been shown to be pretty on the ball on occasion; for instance, he manages to solve Yu's wordplay riddles in Fever 2 with little effort (while Amitie fails). An even better example occurs in the first Light Novel, where Sig quickly and correctly deduces that the sick feeling baby bird Tama might just be hungry. He even manages to surprise Ringo in the process.
  • 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.
  • Iconic Item: Save for some of his alts in Quest Sig is never seen without his bag.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: He eclipsed Raffina as the deuteragonist of the Fever era, plays a big part in its backstory, and continues to get more exposure than any other Fever character besides Amitie. Because of this, it can be easy to forget that he wasn't in the first Fever game.
  • Implied Love Interest: To Amitie. There are enough hints to assume she has feelings for him, but the games keep it very vague and subtle, although the Light Novels do explore their relationship a bit further. In any case, it's never outright stated that Amitie is in love with him, and we don't often have the chance to hear Sig's thoughts on the matter.
  • It Runs in the Family: The half of the demon that wasn't sealed away and became Sig's ancestor is said to have been incredibly absent-minded, implying that many of Sig's quirks are the result of Heart Trauma being carried on through his family line.
  • Late to the Realization: Happens in Fever 2. It takes him until after winning his match with them to realize that Yu and Rei are ghosts.
  • Leitmotif: "In The Middle of a Stroll" for 15th, "Easygoing March" in 20th. Both these themes contain a hidden major-key variation of the Crimson Wave-leitmotif, the theme of the Record of Sealing's demon, which even more prominently occurs in Klug's character themes.
  • Literal-Minded: Especially in 15th Anniversary, such as thinking a bookworm is a literal worm when Klug claims they're really cool.
  • Literal Split Personality: He descends from one, more specifically the other half of the demon in Klug's book, with this incompleteness being the reason behind Sig's personality quirks.
  • Living Shadow: A blue shadowy spirit, most likely Sig's demon half, follows him at all times, but Sig himself has never noticed it. Only Amitie and Lidelle have mentioned having seen that spirit in Sig's 20th story. However, after beating Lidelle in said story, Sig does seem to become aware that something is there, asking "Is (my) soul showing?" in his win-quote.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: He doesn't know at all about his demon heritage and generally acts in confusion when hints of it are thrown his way. Lemres is heavily implied to know the truth, but doesn't want Sig to learn about it, for unknown reasons.
  • Lost in Translation: Sig's Hydrangea spell is called Cobalt in localization, while Possessed Klug's variant still goes by Hydrangea, removing a major hint at their connection in the process.
  • Mark of the Supernatural: His one red eye.
  • Meaningful Name: Played with. His name is Germanic for "Victory Protection", "Shigu" can mean "luxuriant" with the right Japanese writing, "accident" in Chinese, and "himself" in Swedish. Save for the last meaning, when you think too much about the back story for Possessed Klug, none of those really fit Sig.
  • Mellow Fellow: One of his primary personality traits. For all the odd going-ons he's witnessed, he's usually rather laid-back for the most part (Although, this could just be a side-effect of his being only one half of a demon).
  • Motor Mouth: While he is usually the polar opposite of this, he briefly turns into this in Drama CD 2 when giving Amitie and Raffina information about a certain stag-beetle's impressive night-vision.
  • 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.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Not that the artstyle shows it, but Sig's red arm has been described as muscular on several occasions and he is known to have a good amount physical strength behind it. Rulue even considered hiring him as a new bodyguard once he gets older, for this very reason.
  • New Transfer Student: While it isn't made clear whether he transferred schools or just classes, he is introduced like this in Puyo Puyo Fever 2's manual, which puts special emphasis on how "mysterious" he is, thanks to his eccentricities.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The in-between one with Amitie and Klug/Raffina. Note that he's actually very nice in general, but thanks to his usual languid and easily distracted attitude, he often comes off as accidentally apathetic or insensitive.
  • No-Sell: His demonic ancestry renders him immune to certain magic, such as Marle's corruption. His demonic side simply takes the brunt of the spell for him. Incidentally, Klug shares this immunity in certain cases, as he has the protection of the other half of the demon's spirit in his book
  • Not So Stoic: He may not express it well, but he isn't devoid of emotion.
    • He sounds genuinely upset when Witch tried to attack his ladybug in 20th.
    • Dark 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.
    • In Puyo Puyo Tetris he quickly objects to Amitie joining Ringo, Tee, and O in looking for Arle while she is too tired to stand and in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, Sig goes out of his way to save Feli from the Dimensional Parasite, surprising Raffina. (This is explained by scenario writer Utako Yoshino as Sig's bond with his friends having deepened to the point that he's become more aware of his own desires regarding them.)
  • Oblivious to Love: For all the girls that have shown any sort of interest in him (romantic or otherwise), he doesn't really pay them any mind, happily prioritizing his bug catching hobby instead.
  • Odd Friendship: As mentioned in her folder, he shares one with Raffina. He cares enough about her that he willingly leaves the bugs in Ringo's classroom behind to go looking for her, once aware that they are in a different world, while in contrast, not coming along with Ringo to look for Amitie.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • Noticeably starts showing more emotion to the point of tears in Puyo Puyo Tetris's 9th Chapter after Schezo defeats him in the end and attempts to claim his hand.
    • Him starting to ignore her and his other friends beyond his usually spaciness is what tipped Amitie off that something was very wrong with Sig in Sig's Secret - She was right.
  • Our Demons Are Different: His ancestor was the other half of the demon that is trapped in Klug's book.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Dark Sig in contrast to Sig normally shows a lot more emotion in his voice.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Sports this as Sig ver. Gegege no Kitaro, in Quest
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Blue Boy to Raffina's Pink Girl, and to Amitie, who wears plenty of pink in her outfits.
  • Pokémon Speak: His DLC voice in the Japanese version of Puyo Tetris makes all of his voice clips entirely this.
  • The Power of Friendship: Amitie reminding Sig of his friends, their work on the cafe together and a earlier Puyo match between Klug, Raffina, Arle and Ringo that she noticed him having fun watching, is what gives Sig the strength to start fighting back against his demon side, during the climax of Sig's Secret.
  • Protectorate:
    • At the end of Raffina's Hard course in Fever 2, Sig appears and tells Raffina not to advance due to Possessed Klug. Raffina, being Raffina, proceeds to call him greedy and challenges him to a fight.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Due to his design favoring blue and having an unnaturally red eye and arm.
  • 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 Possessed 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.
  • Reincarnation: While not outright stated, it is implied that Sig is not only the descendant, but also the reincarnation of the left-behind half of the sealed demon, as he is stated at seperate points in the games to have inherited both the demon's blood and soul.
  • The Right Hand of Doom: Or rather, the left hand of doom.
  • The Rival: At least Onion Pixie sees him as a rival for Oniko's affections. Of course Sig isn't interested at all, but he still remains a walking Berserk Button for the little onion.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The savviness to Amitie's energy.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!:
    • Tried to invoke this 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?"
  • Secretly Dying: He slowly starts losing his sense of self due to his demonic side going haywire in Sig's Secret but refuses to tell anyone out of worry of ruining his friends' days with his troubles. He promises to never make that mistake again when he realizes how important he is to the others in the end of the novel.
  • Series Continuity Error: While the exact point of time has never been made clear, it's been said that Sig's left arm and eye only turned red not long before Fever 2. This is not reflected in his much younger child form in 7, which is shown to already have his present day anomalies. However, it is likely that the Mini-transformation is supposed to be more of a shrinking or aging spell than actual time travel, making these inconsistencies an intentional choice by SEGA, rather than a genuine error.
  • Serious Business: Bug-collecting and bug-caretaking is EVERYTHING to this kid. To the point where he will challenge people to Puyo fights if they even imply that they’ll hurt a bug in front of him. (Seriously. Ask Ocean Prince.)
  • Ship Tease:
    • In the light novel Amitie and the Mysterious Egg, upon realizing that Sig is better with animals than her, Amitie quickly suggests that he should become the "father" of the baby bird Tama, which has just adopted Amitie as its "mother". Arle and Ringo quickly cut Amitie off, telling her to consider what she's implying (she fails to understand the implications), while Sig states he actually wouldn't mind being Tama's parent alongside Amitie - If Tama were a bug.
    • In chapter 3 of the light novel Amitie and the Girl of Love, the idea of Amitie and Sig "sharing love" with each other gets brought up as a result of Amitie discussing Ally's catchphrase. Even Klug gets dragged in, but since he's the only one aware of the implications, he quickly tries to remove himself from the situation in protest. Sig continues to mumble about "sharing love with Amitie" up to the end of the chapter, which in turn makes Amitie flustered again and makes her blush.
  • Signature Move: Cyan is always his first spell, and Cobalt/Hydrangea is always his last spell. Both of them even appear in Quest, unlike fellow recurring move Celadon/Celestial, which is usually his fourth but in Champions is his third.
  • Significant Birth Date: June 16 (6/16), representing his demonic heritage. It is also the same birth date as Possessed Klug.
  • Sixth Ranger: To the Fever 2 student group, since he was not in the first game.
  • Sleeps with Both Eyes Open: Listed as his special skill in his Fever 2 profile, and does this on Amitie in Sig's Secret. Twice.
  • Sleepyhead: Shows himself to be this on occasion, to the point where some of his flavor text quotes in Quest are just a series of sleeping noises.
  • Sleepwalking: Arle and her party find Sig sleepwalking in Chronicle, necessitating a Puyo match to wake him up.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": In-Universe; Ringo spelled his name as "Shigu" when she meets him in 7.note 
  • Supreme Chef: His Steam City alt portrays him as a successful baker, with his signature Bug Bread (literally bread baked into the shape of a bug) being his most popular ware.
  • Sweat Drop: He has this reaction twice in Fever 2. Once when Oniko falls in love with him, causing Onion Pixie to become furious, and another time when Ocean Prince demands a punishment for Baldanders, simply because he couldn't understand the dog's barking.
  • The One Guy: Dabbles into this on occasion, due to his rather sizable circle of female friends. This is most visible in this promotional comic for Puyo Puyo Tetris, in which he is seen playing with Amitie, Raffina, Arle and Ringo.
    • Fittingly he is featured as the only male character alongside Arle, Amitie, Ringo, Rulue and Witch on the first Vocal CD.
    • In addition he is the only (human) male of the franchise to appear in Pashamon and Chain Chronicle, as part of their respective collabs with Quest.
  • The Quiet One: Not overwhelmingly so, but Sig isn't a wordy character and can be fairly quiet at times. One especially noteworthy instance is in Amitie's 20th story, once the two encounter Arle, Sig only has a single line directed at her and then goes completely quiet for the next two stages.
  • Theme Naming: His spells are related to the color blue. Cyan, Paraiba, and Robin's Egg are blue items; a color, a blue stone, and a blue-colored egg. Lapis Lazuli is another blue stone, replacing Paraiba in 20th. Celestial is a term used to describe the sky, and Hydrangeas can be either blue or pink. The latter is replaced with Cobalt in the English version of Puyo Tetris.
  • The Stoic: Exaggerated; this guy's face hardly moves, and has a perpetually monotone voice. Carries over to his Steam City version in Puyo Quest, where his Full Power portrait (which usually comprises of a more serious, battle-ready expression) barely even emotes. His "Happy" alternate voice in 20th and his English alternate in Puyo Tetris defy this, having him express much more emotion than normal.
  • They Have the Scent!: Not Sig himself, but a species of golden butterfly he summons to help Ringo and Schezo track down the mythical White Puyo in Puyo on Stage.
  • Tranquil Fury: Whenever he gets angry, which usually only happens when he thinks a bug might get harmed by someone else, Sig's anger manifests in this form.
  • Unlimited Wardrobe: Sig has a tendency to switch outfits more often then most of the cast. His original outfit stuck around for Fever 2 and 15th Anniversary, before switching to a variant of the Suzuran uniform in 7. 20th Anniversary introduced what would become his default outfit for most games or other media and even that didn't stop him from receiving another new one in Puyo Puyo Tetris and being one of very few characters to get a completely new outfit for his higher rank cards in Quest.
  • 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.
    • He is also not particularly impressed by the blue spirit that occasionally leaves his body. His story in 20th implies he might not even be aware that the spirit existed.
  • Utility Party Member: In Quest, Dark 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.
  • Vocal Evolution: Starts out with a slightly tired-sounding and somewhat deadpan Japanese voice in Fever 2, which gradually becomes more and more of a Creepy Monotone as the games go on. His Dark Sig alt, which is actually supposed to show what he would sound like if he were more emotional, ironically sounds more like a return to his Fever 2 voice than anything.
  • Weirder Than Usual: In spite of everyone else doing his behavior off as within the norm for Sig, after spending the first half of the novel learning more about Sig's Not So Stoic side, Amitie immediately picks up on it when he starts acting genuinely robotic, ineffectual and inattentive in the later half of Sig's Secret. It turns out to be a sign of him being taken over by his demonic powers and struggling to resist it while trying not to worry his friends.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: His Fever 2 bio lists ghosts as his dislike, implying he may be afraid of them and his reaction when realizing Yu and Rei are ghosts in a victory quote from the same game can be read as one of shock. Despite this he shows no signs of being particularly uncomfortable around them in 20th. Later, Drama CD #4 implies that he still dislikes ghosts and just isn't particularly shocked by meeting them anymore after all the times Yu has accosted him.
  • With Friends Like These...: Materials outside the games group Sig with Klug at times, despite the latter frequently berating Sig and being one of few characters to express intolerance for his bug catching hobby.
  • Working Through the Cold: A supernatural variant of this occurs in Sig's Secret, where Sig pretends to be fine for days when his demonic powers are starting to errode his sense of self. This causes his condition to advance to the point his personality almost completely disappears and dies. It's later implied he did this in order to not worry his friends or ruin the fun they're having with their festival project.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Hydrangea, which is shown summoning both blue and red sparks of energy. His other half also uses the spell.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: In his signature sky blue color.

Major Supporting Characters

     Feli 

Feli

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_feli.png
Character Color: Purple
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Yukie Maeda (Japanese), Erin Fitzgerald (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)

You there... you're thinking of a bad thing... aren't you?

Lemres' underclass woman, Feli hails from the same town and school as her senior. She's skilled in the occult art of divination, with a gothic lolita dress and a dark and mysterious personality to match her abilities. Despite all of that, she's got a strong attachment to Lemres, which inevitably leads to her antagonizing Klug for idolizing him.


  • 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 all the time. Ringo has a hard time realizing whether she was acting oddly or not, and it takes Lemres to confirm that 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.
  • Covert Pervert: She wants to take advantage of Lemres's candy-deprived delirium to do whatever she wants to him in 20th.
    • In 15th, Yu and Rei joke about her star sign (Virgo), commenting that she is anything but (much to her annoyance).
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She is on the side of good (or rather, Lemres's), but this does not stop other characters from finding her unsettling.
  • Decomposite Character: Acts as one to Lala from Madou Monogatari I, taking over her role of being an unfriendly, female magic students obsessed with a Senpai, whom she has an unrequited crush on. (Lala's other traits, namely unreasonable confidence in her own academic abilities and a disagreeable snideness, went to Klug.)
  • Dowsing Device: Carries a pair of L-shaped rods for her divination arts.
  • The Dreaded: Feli is the one character that the rest of the cast simply doesn't look forward to interacting with, since she can become really antagonistic over the smallest things (unless Lemres is around). Klug, in particular, fears her.
  • Dub Name Change: The localized release of Champions changes White Feli to Angelic Feli.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Amitie even comments she looks like a doll in Sig's Secret.
  • 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 Friend Nobody Likes: As discussed in The Dreaded entry, the rest of the cast fears her since she generally acts creepy and can become enraged at the drop of a hat. Only Lemres seems to be used to her attitude by now, and even then he has his moments of discomfort towards it.
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: Par for the course for a world where magic is the norm, but even among them, she practices fortune telling and curses.
  • Hime Cut: To go with her Elegant Gothic Lolita style.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: While she lacks the story relevance of Lemres she did quickly go on to become one of the big Fever mainstays, it took until Champions for her to miss out on a roster spot, something that even more notable Fever veterans like Accord or Lidelle can't say for themselves.
  • I Know Your True Name: Mentions that she can curse people if she knows their true name in 15th.
  • The Jailbait Wait: Inverted. She wants her age to catch up with Lemres' (it's 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.
  • Licked by the Dog: Baldanders cares a lot about her.
  • 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.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: If she's alongside Lemres and Klug, she will be the Mean creepy Yandere who views Klug as an obstacle in-between her and Nice Lemres.
  • 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 Angelic Feli. As for where the power part applies, Angelic Feli has immensely stronger AI than her normal counterpart, outdoing the likes of Dark Prince and Ecolo's AI for difficulty.
  • 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.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Played with. Her relationship with Lemres is rarely explored in a serious manner, being more of a setup for jokes coming from the reactions of other characters to it.
  • Seers: Through her divination powers, she can foresee the future or past. She demonstrates this on Ringo in Sig's Secret by recalling why Ringo was late meeting with Amitie and Arle to discuss Sig's disappearance. However, when it comes to the future, what she actually sees is quite abstract.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Junior to Lemres. She even refers him as "sempai".
  • Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: Considers herself to be Lemres' fated true love (and will get pissed off at anyone who questions it). Lemres, as far as we know, does not see her in a romantic light. At best, he enjoys her company as a close friend and undergrad student.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Lemres is everything to her, to the point she has no amiable relationships with anyone else in the cast save for maybe Baldanders, her dog.
  • Spell Theme: Most of her spells are terms related to the art of divination (Conjunction, Luminary, Horary, Significator, etc.)
  • 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.
  • Yandere: Veers into this territory for Lemres in 20th, to the point where he feels unsafe around her and needs to run away in his story. When Feli basically tries to pull a G-rated date-rape on him via a cake laced with salt (the previous stage against Klug revealed that salt knocks Lemres out cold)

     Klug 

Klug

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_krug.png
Character Color: Purple
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced by: Mie Sonozaki (Japanese), Thessaly Lerner (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Edward Bosco (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
Stage Actor: Marina Tanoue

They'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). He's got the honor student book smarts to contrast Amitie, but despite being able to plan several steps ahead, he's not always prepared when things don't quite go his way.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: While Klug has generally mellowed out in more recent games, Puyo on Stage takes it to another level, by having Klug do absolutely nothing to incur anyone's wrath (other than rightfully pointing out when people are being silly or dishonest, that is), and yet still be at the receiving end of a large part of the play's Slapstick.
  • Adjusting Your Glasses: By the bridge in Fever 1 and 2 and 15th, and by the corner in 20th.
  • All There in the Manual: He is said to be skilled at card games, in one of his character profiles.
  • Allergic to Love: When he sees Maguro's full face (which make anyone who sees it fall in love with him) in 20th, his first instinct is to be terrified and try to run away.
  • And I Must Scream: Anytime his body gets possessed by the demon within his book, he ends up taking its place within said book. Judging by his expression when sealed up, it's pretty clear that he's not enjoying any of it at all.
  • 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.
  • Ascended Extra: He's the most prominent Fever character in the Live Manzai that are played out during official Puyo-related livestreams, thanks to Mie Sonozaki being a regular in said streams. Then again, Sonozaki also plays Arle...
  • 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. 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.
  • Backseat Gamer: Directs Amitie into triggering a 5-chain with his nagging in Puyo on Stage... Only to have Amitie lose the match because of it, since Raffina had set-up an 8-chain. Klug is actually humbled into silence by this miscalculation.
  • Bookworm: So he says.
  • Big Ego, Hidden Depths: His official Image Song reveals that Klug doesn't actually consider himself a natural born genius. He is just so obsessed with keeping up his facade of being the town's most talented apprentice sorcerer that he has developed a nasty habit of ignoring even his need to sleep to stay at the top of his studies. The second verse and its chorus specifically imply that this is behavior is caused by some very deep sitting self-loathing issues that Klug is trying to burry underneath academic success and the praise of others.
  • Birds of a Feather: Shares a moment in Puyo Quest with fellow dark magic practitioner Miriam. He even declares him as a rival!
  • Breakout Character: Was a minor antagonist in Fever but was given a prominent role in Fever 2.
  • Butt-Monkey: While the series has plenty of those, he is one of the examples that tends to get humiliated or disrespected the most. Being so arrogant and unfriendly tends to cause that.
  • Color-Coded Characters: All Primp students are designed to feature one of the five Puyo colors prominently in their designs. Klug obviously falls under purple, which fittingly also groups him with other dark magic users like Schezo in Quest.
  • Conflict Ball: Drops these so much you'd think it would be For the Evulz.
  • Chuunibyou: Somehow manages to tick all the boxes for the delusional type, despite actually having magical powers. As much actual talent as he has as a magic user, his very melodramatic demeanor only succeeds in making him seem childish and weaker than he actually is.
  • Decomposite Character:
    • Served as one, along with Lemres, for Schezo in the Fever series, as he shares Schezo's usage of dark magic as well as his awkward and selfish personality.
    • Also serves as one for Madou Monogatari's Lala, alongside Feli, taking over her role of the disagreeable, asocial magic student with unreasonable confidence in their own academics.
  • 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 Possessed Klug filling in for Klug's adult transformation in PP7, he never learned. Seeing how Klug repeatedly gets re-possessed upon losing conciousness at various ocassions in the Audio Adaptation and the book begins acting up again in Tetris and Klug is powerless to stop it until Schezo helps him, it seems unlikely he's actually found a way to control the demon.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • Unlike his classmates he's merely a Optional Party Member in Chronicle, because of this it's entirely possible to beat the main RPG mode without ever encountering him, since he has no part in the story and only shows up in a very small number of select cutscenes.
    • It's Possessed Klug who is one of the playable Puyo Puyo characters in the mobile title Kotodaman, while Klug himself only appears in his sealed spirit form.
  • Doomed by Canon: The fact that Possessed Klug is his Adult Form in 7 implies he might not be able to avoid being possessed again. Alternately, if one interpretes the Adult Forms of the characters to be based on their own aspirations (which seems likely, given that everyone seems to grow up exactly into what they've previously stated they want to be), this can also be taken to mean that Klug is at high risk of becoming exactly like the demon of his own accord if he proceeds his current path in life.
  • 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". Though, given that magic-replenishing items in the Madou Monogatari games (which Witch originates from) almost exclusively are said to contain alcohol, it is likely that the "milk"-part doesn't even apply here.
    • Mood-Swinger: One of Witch's drink's effects on him. One moment he's laughing at Raffina for being "thick", the next he's crying to Amitie over his insecurities.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: His alternate voice in the English version of Tetris 2 has him speaking this way.
  • Evil Is Cool: If his Fever 2 profile is to be believed, he thinks that evil things are cool. This does line up with his affinity for dark magic.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: He collected the items needed to release the demon within his book on purpose. It 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". He’s honestly lucky that Amitie is such a ditz.
  • 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 that he'll get his wish if he becomes successful, which he failed to mention. So much for that spread, eh?
  • Extremely Overdue Library Book: Has been actively averting this ever since before Fever 1, by making regular trips to the Primp Town Library to renew his lease on the Record of Sealing, abusing the fact that the library does not appear to have a limit on such renewals, much to the chagrin of the librarian, Akuma.
  • Fanboy: To Lemres.
  • Foil: Serves as one to every single member of the Fever ARS trio:
    • Amitie is a poor student while Klug is a genius one. Meanwhile, outside class, Amitie befriends almost everyone she meets while Klug is unsociable.
    • As stated in the latter's entry, both Klug and Raffina are smug and antiheroic type A students. The differences are found in their fighting styles and social standing (Ojou and Nerd).
    • With Sig, it borders on a literal Red Oni, Blue Oni dynamic, with Klug always acting high-strung and putting himself under pressure even when there is no need to, while Sig is always easygoing-to-apathetic about everything. The "literal" part comes from the fact, that Klug currently holds the book containing the other half of Sig's demon soul, meaning he has this little red demon ghost thing popping from his sprite from time to time, which contrasts with Sig's very own soul appendage that takes the form of a small blue ghost.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: In the usual Amitie, Raffina, Sig and Klug foursome, he's the obvious Melancholic; an analytical perfectionist with a mean critical streak, yet gets quickly depressed when his own genius fails him.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: In Fever 2, no one but Amitie is particularly bothered by the fact that Klug is acting very out of character and might be in danger. While Sig has the excuse of being a Cloudcuckoolander, Raffina flat out doesn't care even when finding out that Klug is possessed, surprising even the demon possessing him.
  • 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 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).
  • Gratuitous Latin: Has a tendency to use Latin words in his spells.
  • 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.
  • 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: While it happens, it is rare for him to do something nice that isn't towards Lemres.
  • Just Eat Gilligan: Many (though certainly not all) of the problems he goes through could be solved by simply getting rid of his possessed book. This is especially glaring given Klug knows it's possessed and trying to take his body and yet keeps it around anyways.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: He's undeniably smart... in an academic way, that is. Outside of the classroom, though, he shows Delusions of Eloquence surprisingly often. Amitie even calls him a know-nothing when he kept dancing around the secrets of her hat in 20th.
  • 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. Notably, both of these themes contain the Crimson Wave-leitmotif, a trait that is shared with Sig's themes.
  • Loners Are Freaks: In one Quest 4-koma, Raffina teases him that now that the multiplayer mode has opened, "even lonely people like Klug can rest easy".
  • Meaningful Name: "Klug" is German for wise/smart/intelligent.
  • 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: Meek, uncool, lacks friends and is overly obsessed with his magic studies. At the very least, he is not afraid of talking back to the resident Alpha Bitch.
  • 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 Inbetween:
    • He and Raffina can both be considered the mean ones to Amitie's 'Nice' and Sig's 'In-Between'. Compared to Raffina herself, he's a bit meaner due to being less likely to undergo an introspection about his own character flaws and doesn't have the same sympathetic background she has.
    • When forming a trio with Lemres and Feli, he's the In-Between to the very chill Lemres and the very psychotic Feli.
  • Not Himself: In Fever 2, his Deka transformation in 7, the 20th Anniversary alternate costume for him...
  • Pet the Dog: After regaining his body from Possessed Klug's clutches, he gives the Sun Bookmark, one of the catalysts used to break the book's seal, to Amitie rather than keep it. As much as he tries to deny the possession being his fault, he's learned his lesson the hard way.
  • The Perfectionist: And proud of it. This also extends beyond his study of magic: In Sig's Secret, he is seen taking 30 minutes trying to take flour measurements perfectly and trying to use a theromometer to preheat an oven, just to show off with his baking skills to Sig and the girls.
  • Power Floats: His book is seen floating when he casts powerful spells.
  • Powers via Possession: Into Possessed 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: Being the honors student of the class, he's got the smarts needed to learn high-powered magic and purple is the dominant color in his clothes. As a game character, his A.I.'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 Dark Prince'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 Possessed 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.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: The can to a demon was given to him by Lemres.
  • Security Blanket: The local librarian, Akuma, accuses him of using the Record of Sealing as one after Klug repeatedly refuses to cancel his ridiculously long lease on the book. Given that at least two canonical possession incidents later, he still insists that the book is part of his identity, Akuma likely has a point.
  • Signature Laugh: UHYAHYAHYAHYA!
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He constantly tries to lord over everyone how powerful and intelligent he is, but is often beaten up by his classmates, including by Raffina whose magic is incredibly weak. That said, it's not skill that he's lacking, as his AI is notoriously the strongest among child characters in most of the games he appears in. He just tends to sabotage himself with his overconfidence.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: So much that some people like Sig tend to refer to him as just that, "Glasses".
  • Soul Jar: The book he carries around with him has a red spirit that pokes out of its pages every now and then. It's also what he gets sealed into whenever Possessed Klug takes over. And he continues to carry it, even when it's still possessed.
  • Star Power: Most of his magic (all once he ditches "Ignis" after the events of Fever 2) is based on astronomical concepts, contrasting with Feli, who uses astrology in her spells. This isn't limited to just shooting vaguely star-related lasers either; In Drama CD #2 he uses his Stella Inerans/Starlight spell to dispell a blockade on the nightsky, which is preventing Feli from using her own magic.
  • Strong Girl, Smart Guy: With Raffina, who is sorta his rival.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Has one in Possessed Klug, who has stronger AI.
  • Theme Naming: Nebula, Lacteus Orbis, Nebula Macula... Meanwhile, Ignis means fire.
  • Those Two Guys: The Amitie-starring Light Novels tend to have him and Raffina both play this role for a good chunk of their screentime. This may be a result of the stories focusing more on the 'A' Trio and on some occasions, Sig.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Has an affinity to the dark arts and is quite the Jerkass, and this is not even taking in account the book with the sealed demon he carries around for no adequately explained reason, but Amitie and co. all consider him a friend anyway.
  • Too Clever by Half: Klug is so confident in his intelligence, he never really considers he's not infallible. Being caught with holes in his logic never fails to catch him off-guard, despite how much he denies it.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Downplayed as strict ''death'' does not occur, but implied by his adult form in 7 being Possessed Klug. He had already been possessed by the book's demon once, and in Tetris he is shown to be completely powerless to stop the demon from raging. Rather than just throwing the book away, however, he keeps it until it takes his body again and traps him within the book.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: When Rulue threatens to punch and kick him into oblivion during 15th, Klug's reaction is to ask her if she can add in a Full Nelson (a chokehold) as well.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Whereas Fever and Fever 2 made a point of mentioning that his goal was explicitly to become an evil dark wizard and had him act selfish and unkind towards absolutely everyone sans Lemres, after the possession incident he seems to have grown out of this for the most part and has settled on just wanting to become a powerful sorcerer in general. Accordingly, he tends to act somewhat more agreeable in recent games, even forging a truce with Raffina whenever the two of them have a common goal.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: He never acknowledges the demon trapped in his book, even after getting possessed by it. This is made especially jarring in Chapter 9 of Tetris, when he despairs over his book yelling at him and never makes any mention of the demon, making it sound like he is (somehow) genuinely unaware of it's presence. In the Drama CDs he twice outright states to be unable to remember exactly what happens when he gets possessed, though that might be because in those two specific instances he got possessed after passing out (once from shock and once due to almost drowning.
  • With Friends Like These...: With Raffina. They're usually seen together, but, due to their massive egos, their interactions rarely deviate from them trying to exert their superiority over the other.

     Lemres 

Lemres

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_lemres.png
Character Color: Green
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Takumi Yamazaki (Japanese), Ben Diskin (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)

Sorry, I'm a sucker for sweets... ooh, suckers!

A senior magic student of the neighboring, unnamed town, Lemres was the boss of the WakuWaku course in Fever 2. Being titled "Comet Warlock" before he even finished magic school, he's actually very strong and intelligent, with a reputation of being a prodigy warlock and fueling Klug's aspiration. He's an amiable person to be around, though his affinity and generosity with sweets does make him a bit of a weirdo to some people.


  • Affably Evil: At least he debuted as a boss.
  • The Ageless: Ms. Accord states that fully fledged mages never age beyond their twenties due to abundant use of anti-aging magic in their culture.
  • Bad Liar: Lies to Sig about not knowing about his demonic red arm and immediately follows up by saying he's lying about it. Surprisingly, this confuses Sig enough to prevent him from asking any more questions.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: His quirks are off-putting at first, but his skill in magic is nothing to sneeze at.
  • Biomanipulation: Is the person who turned Ocean Prince into a fish, with the help of the Star Lantern's power.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Beyond his candy-sharing weirdness, he's 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.
  • Continuity Nod: In Chronicle he is recruited in the desert of Yellome, likely in reference to his debut in Fever 2, where all three members of Fever ARS first meet him in a desert area.
  • Creepy Good: At least when first met, a lot of characters feel uneasy towards him. They eventually warm up to him once they know of his intentions, with the exception of Ringo, who is still creeped out by his constant offering of candy.
  • 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.
  • A Day in the Limelight: While already a major supporting character in the games, he also plays a big part in Sig's Secret, being the only one to know of Sig's demon heritage and thus the seriousness of his condition in the novel. He even has more plot relevance then Arle and Ringo, whose roles in contrast, were largely reduced to mere support for Amitie.
  • Decomposite Character: Served as one, along with Klug, for Schezo in the Fever series, having a similar appearance and elements of the calmer side of Schezo's personality. Though he exchanges the rivalry for his own quirks. Also shares some traits with Witch, both of them being comet magicians.
  • Erudite Stoner: A G-rated version alluded to in Tetris's English dub with his very calm dub voice and love of sweets.
  • 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 an 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.
    • He is also one to Schezo. Both are powerful mages who wield dark magic and have quirks that make them come off in a wrong way towards others, but where as Lemres is nice, helpful and well respected, Schezo is instead mocked by most of the cast and usually only helps if there is something of interest for him involved, like punishing Dark Prince.
  • Genius Sweet Tooth: He's known for constantly having a supply of sweets to fuel his magic, but considering he earned his status before he even graduated magic school, he's got a healthy amount of magical knowledge to match.
  • Green Thumb: His spell Forêt Noire in 15th summons a swirl of leaves.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: His absence from the first Fever can be very jarring in hindsight, when considering just how much of a major supporting character he became right off the bat, right down to even securing himself a spot on every new roster with the sole exception of Champions.
  • 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.
  • Leitmotif: "Rising Comet!"; this theme, along with Possessed Klug's and Popoi's, has yet to be changed.
  • Long Pants: Unlike other characters, his shoes and pants are not visually divided at all.
  • 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". (One could perhaps translate the joke as “Uncandy”.)
  • Madness Mantra: He gets a bit...loony under sweets withdrawal.
    • "Sweeswsweesweswsseesweseaesewesweetsweetswetsweetswe..."
    • And then he goes "Cakey... cakey... cakey cakey cakey cakey cakey... CAAAAAAAAKEY!"
    Schezo: UWAAAAAA!
  • 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: Befitting a warlock like him. In his case, it's to show he's a magical prodigy.
  • Nice Guy: Once you get past the suspicious implications, he's really kind at heart.
  • Nice Mean And Inbetween: If Klug is around to make a trio with him and Feli, he will be the obvious Nice to Feli's Mean and Klug's In-Between, although he usually sneaks off when the other two start fighting for his attention.
  • No-Sell: Successfully resists Marle's corruption in Tetris 2
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: In Fever 2, he's mistaken for a bad person in all the WakuWaku courses and beaten up as a result.
  • Not What It Looks Like: Lemres attempts to give candy to Amitie in her course. Pretty much speaks for itself.
  • Odd Friendship: In-Universe, other characters have found it strange that Lemres would be so friendly and helpful towards a Royal Brat such as the Ocean Prince. A drama CD explains that they once met when the Ocean Prince, as Prince Salde, was trying to avoid his royal duties and escape from his servants, which inspired Lemres to leave his own home and made him feel indebted to the Ocean Prince.
  • 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.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper:
    • It's heavily implied in 20th, Tetris, and the light novel Sig's Secret that he's aware that Sig is the book demon's original body and he wants to keep Sig from ever realizing it.
    • Finally confirmed in Tetris 2, though it is also clarified that he was never entirely sure until he saw the Dimensional Parasite's spell failing to affect Sig and Klug in exactly the same way.
  • Sempai/Kohai: He's Feli's senior.
  • Spell Theme: Rissoler, Rouleau, Sucre Filé, Caramelisé/Carameliser, 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(d)”, “glaze/frosting”, “to flour”, “Black Forest (Cake)”, and “jam”. Predictably, they're related to sweets, baking or otherwise.
  • 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.
  • Sweets O Vision: Happens at one point during his story in 20th, where he mistakes Donguri Gaeru for a melon gumdrop, in a withdrawal-fueled frenzy.
  • 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.
  • Vague Age: Looks significantly older than the rest of the magic students due to his lanky built, but his exact age is unknown. While there is some confusion regarding his age due to a comment made by Ms. Accord, the Fever 2 manual refers to him as "high-school-aged", while calling the rest of the students "grade-to-middle-school-aged".
  • Vocal Evolution: Compare his voice in Fever 2 vs. Chronicle. While it's a subtle change, he used to sound much deeper and faster. Ironically, his English voice is nothing like his current Japanese pitch.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Salt is toxic to him and can even knock him out cold if he has too much. This paints his desire to turn the beach into candy in a new light; he may just have wanted to enjoy it without risking getting hurt by saltwater.
  • 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 Possessed 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.

     Lidelle (Rider) 

Lidelle

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_liddell.png
Character Color: Green
First Appearance: Puyo Pop Fever
Voiced 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 Dark Prince like a big brother.


  • Big Brother Worship: While not truly related, Lidelle truly admires the Dark Prince in a sibling-like fashion. She also does the same in regards to Draco, looking to her as a Cool Big Sis. Draco actually reciprocates this and occasionally talks to Lidelle as if she really was her little sister. Dark Prince, on the other hand, is much more aloof and stand-offish, constantly denying the relationship.
  • Blush Sticker: On her all the time.
  • Butt-Monkey: At the very start of Raffina's WakuWaku course in Fever 2 she get's send flying by Otomo and stumbles back on-screen later in a dazed state...only for Raffina to accuse Lidelle of standing in her way, forcing her into a Puyo match.
  • Cartoon Creature: She has no confirmed species besides being 50% human. Schezo and Witch both think she might be an imp, but she denies it.
  • Color-Coded Characters: All Primp students are designed to feature one of the five Puyo colors prominently in their designs, with Lidelle representing the green color.
  • Cue the Rain: Her defeat animation in 15th.
  • Demihuman
  • Demoted to Extra: Back and forth after 15th. She does not appear in 7, returns as a playable character in 20th, appears in only three cutscenes in Tetris, becomes playable again in Chronicle, gets cut again from Champions, and she was present as a cameo in only one cutscene in Tetris 2, making her the only character present in the game's launch that was non-playable until patch 1.1.0 made her playable again.
  • Drunk on Milk: She must've drank the same "Secret Drink" Klug had in the latter's story in 20th Anniversary. As a result, she's giggling uncontrollably when Klug meets her in his story.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: Similar to Klug’s alternate voice, Lidelle’s alternate voice in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 has her speak this way.
  • Expy: Has elements of Draco (horns, green hair, weak AI) and Yo~n'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 Dark Prince with his "very fine pair of horns" in 15th. However, she still feels shy about her horns in ''20th''.
  • Friend to All Living Things: While she has trouble making friends with other people, she doesn't have this problem with animals and other primitive creatures. She can understand them just fine, and they all seem to like her, even the usually aggressive Onion Pixie.
  • Friendless Background: She didn't have friends until Amitie and Tartar befriended her. Strangely enough, she tells Baldanders in ''15th Anniversary'' that she wanted "to have a big friend like [him]".
  • The Friends Who Never Hang: It wasn't until Quest that she and Tartar got any proper on-screen interactions.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: She is said to like plushies, while never seen with one she does have a implied friendship with Popoi.
  • Hand-Hiding Sleeves: They're far larger than her arms. She's also depicted using them to whip up her wind-based spells.
  • Hidden Depths: 20th notes that she has acute perception, being able to forecast the weather and find lost items. She's just too shy to bring it up to others.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: This blue-eyed demihuman is easily one of the nicest characters in the series, despite her shyness.
  • Innocently Insensitive:
    • When she was up against Schezo in the latter's story mode in 15th Anniversary, she utters 'pervert' out of nowhere, trying to add to Schezo's examples of names he doesn't like to be called. Unfortunately for her, she said the one he hates the most.
      "I'm sorry... Did I offend?"
    • She expresses jealously that Dapper Bones doesn't have to worry about his hairstyle... by pointing out that he is bald. Dapper doesn't take it very well.
  • Interspecies Friendship: Flavor dialogue in the Lesson Mode of 15th indicates that she shares one with Popoi.
  • Leitmotif: "Rider's Secret Dream."
  • It Is 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.
  • Odd Friendship: She has a good relationship with the Dark Prince, who tried multiple times to boost her confidence. He doesn't like being called "big brother" though.
  • Older Than They Look: Lidelle is in the same school class as Amitie, Raffina, etc., but because of her Hand-Hiding Sleeves, short height, child-like voice and timid personality, she could pass off as someone much younger.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's ridiculously shy and timid.
  • 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.
  • Theme Naming: Vento, Uragano, Tifone, Tuono and Arcobaleno. In Translation, they are; Wind, Hurricane, Typhoon, Thunder, and Rainbow.
  • Weather ManipulationBlow 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: Most of her moves involve wind, and it's her most prominent color.

     Ms. Accord (and Popoi) 

Ms. Accord

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_acoord.png
Character Color (Accord): Blue
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced by: Miwa Kouzuki (Japanese), Irene Trapp (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Wendee Lee (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
Stage Actor: Juria Kawakami

Let's begin.

The mysterious schoolteacher of Primp Town who 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.
  • Ambiguously Evil: In Fever, she sends the students on a hunt for her stolen cane that turns out not to have been stolen at all, her cat puppet is the Prince of Darkness, and she very willingly smashes Raffina over the head with a giant mallet to make her forget what she had learned. Later games do not elaborate on this, and her actions can be read as anywhere between The Gadfly to deliberately malicious.
  • Ambiguously Gay: In 15, she recruits Rulue as a teacher at her school, and then describes her to Raffina as "Very sexy."
  • The Ageless: 15th reveals she uses anti-aging magic.
  • 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, and even puts up a fight against Red Amitie, Angelic Feli, Possessed Klug, and Dark Sig.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Or rather, Troll in Sheep's Clothing. While she generally cares well for her students, you'd have to wonder what goes on in her head as she swerves around deeper issues, ranging from passing it off as figments of imagination, to literally hammering the discussion out of their memories.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Her defeat sprite in Fever 2 (in which she looks for her glasses, which have fallen off of her face) implies this, even though she never opens her eyes to begin with.
  • Contrived Coincidence: This is how her cameos in Puyo Puyo Tetris play out. At the end of Chapter 5, 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. She also 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.
  • 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.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Being the host of the game's tournament she is the closest thing to a lead character that 15th has to offer. Aside from her own story and appearances as an opponent she shows up at the end of every story to present the winners with their medallion and also serves as the host of Lesson Mode.
  • Deal with the Devil: Popoi, her puppet, calls himself the Prince of Darkness and they have some kind of understanding, though what exactly it is has yet to be revealed.
  • Demoted to Extra: Zigzags after 15th Anniversary. She didn't appear in 7, was made playable again in 20th Anniversary, became a cameo in Tetris, became playable again in Chronicle and didn't appear in Tetris 2 until patch 1.1.0, where she was added to the roster.
  • Eccentric Mentor: Nobody knows anything about her, other than the fact that she's a good teacher with a talking puppet. Lemres, who seems to know the most, is quiet about his knowledge.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Just like Lemres, her eyes are always shut.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Popoi Lance, where she chucks her pet at the screen.
  • Hyperspace Mallet: She whips one out to smash Raffina upside the head in Fever's HaraHara ending. Her mallet also causes people hit by it to forget their day.
  • Leitmotif: Cheerful Surprise Test in 15th
  • Lighter and Softer: Say what you will about Accord sending her students on a goose chase with no clear purpose or Aesop in mind, but her methods are still a far cry from the Compile-era teachers' test of sending a six-year-old into a dangerous tower filled with malicious monsters.
  • Little Black Dress: Discussed by Dapper Bones 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.
  • Musical Assassin: In Fever and Fever 2. The series has gradually dropped this in favor of giving her school-themed spells rather than musical ones.
  • 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.
  • Secret A.I. Moves: When faced as a Raid Boss in Tetris 2, she has an special ability that prevents the player from rotating their pieces for a few seconds.
  • Spell Theme: In Fever, she used musical terms. It slowly shifted into school-related terms in Fever 2, when her animations were changed.
  • Troll: Pretends she's out of cookies when Lemres is delirious after a lack of sugar... And then eats a cream puff after he leaves.
  • The Unreveal: Accord has a suspiciously high track record of withholding information...
    • 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? As well as wiping Raffina's memory of it after she found out it wasn't missing? Sega's lips are still sealed.
    • She also dodges the issues involving Amitie's hat, just passing it off as Amitie's imagination, and diverts Sig's attention from his red hand when asked about it.
  • Vague Age: She claims that wizards like her are capable of using anti-aging magic in order to look younger than they are. Now, she doesn't actually confirm that she practices this herself, but it does make one wonder considering she doesn't look very old for a teacher.

Popoi

Evil Popoi/"Prince of Darkness" 
Character Color: Purple
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced 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.


     Ocean Prince (Prince Salde) 

Ocean Prince/Prince Salde

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_sakana.png
Click here to see his human form. 
Character Color: Yellow
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced by: Naomi Wakabayashi (Japanese), Ali Johnston (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Erin Fitzgerald (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)

I order thee! My servant! Devote thy entire being into claiming that precious artifact!

A pink minnow that resides in the ocean just off of Primp's beaches. In reality, he's actually a human boy using a magical artifact that allows him to take the form of a fish, in order to escape his royal duties at his castle. He's quite crass and a stereotypical royal-stuckup.


  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: He's a pink fish. May be justified given he has pink hair and mostly-pink clothes as a human, which could have influenced his odd colours as a fish.
  • Ascended Extra: He had no particular importance in Fever, being just Raffina's third opponent, but became a major player in the plot of Fever 2, with two of the game's stories (Raffina's WakuWaku and Sig's HaraHara) revolving around him.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Subverted. Raffina assumed this was the case and undoes the "curse" placed upon him, but it turns out Salde really wanted to be a fish in order to escape his royal duties.
  • Battle Butler: Both his actual butler, Otomo, and Sig.
  • Bishōnen: His human form looks very feminine, to Raffina's disappointment (she expected a Prince Charming given Otomo's description).
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: His official name used to be, believe it or not, "Prince of Ocean". Tetris has his name changed to the more correct "Ocean Prince".
  • Covert Pervert: Emphasizing on "covert" Just for Pun, as he decides to hide under Feli's skirt in Feli's story in 20th. He gets kicked for his troubles.
  • Demoted to Extra: Zigzags this after 15th Anniversary. He didn't appear in 7, was made playable again in 20th Anniversary, became a cameo in Tetris, became playable again in Chronicle, was cut again in Champions, and didn't appear in Tetris 2 until patch 1.1.0, where he was added to the roster.
  • 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 story mode that he pulls pranks on Otomo as he tries to avoid his royal duties.
  • Hidden Depths: His story in 20th reveals that he's actually grown to dislike his royal life, always feeling trapped within the confines of his castle.
  • Humanity Ensues: Inverted; The Ocean Prince is a prince that turned himself into a minnow 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 when he gets the Lantern of the Stars back from Possessed Klug, though.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He has his moments in his 20th Anniversary story mode.
    • He claims that, despite his life of wealth and fame as a prince, he envies the commoners because they have no rank or status within society. Unfortunately for him, he makes this claim in front of Raffina.
    • In exchange for hiding him from Otomo's pursuit, Sig asks the Ocean Prince to get a bug for him. He thought the bug was meant to be food for Sig...
  • Hypocrite: He longs to escape the duties of royalty and live a simple, free life...and yet still expects to be waited on hand and foot. Justified, since he’s been royalty since birth and it’s likely the only way he knows to get things done.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He has no real hatred for Otomo and plays with him when his butler can't recognize him. He also wants to turn Otomo into a fish too so that his butler can enjoy a carefree life.
  • Later Installment Weirdness: In terms of gameplay in Fever-based modes, Ocean Prince has always been a character that, while weak in chaining out of Fever, he's usually the most powerful character in terms of Fever chains. 20th oddly changes his chaining power to put him on par with the likes of Ms. Accord... who is the other way around in terms of chaining power. This is implied to be an oversight, as Chronicle puts his chaining power on par with his earlier appearances.
  • Leitmotif: 15th gives him "Ocean Prince ~Graceful Wandering~".
  • 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."
  • Morphic Resonance: Apart from the crown and medallion he wears in his two forms, several physical traits of his fishy form match his appearance as a human: the color pattern of his fishy form's underbelly matches with the clothes he wears, his limbs are of the same color as his gloves, and they have the same Exotic Eye Designs.
  • Odd Friendship: According to one of the Drama CDs, his friendship with Lemres is seen this way In-Universe. This is explained by him being the one who inspired Lemres to leave his own home and explore the world, and, in return, Lemres helps Salde turn into a fish whenever he wants to avoid his royal duties.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Possibly, if the realm he rules is actually in the ocean, which seems to be implied by his Punny Name.
  • 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 Girl, Blue Boy: The Pink Feminine-Looking Boy for Sig's Blue Boy, in Sig's HaraHara Course in Fever 2.
  • The Prankster: While he's usually known to give Otomo a hard time looking for him, 20th reveals that he's also quite skilled in pranking as well, doing things like getting Otomo to hug a sea cucumber while he was sleeping, or even tricking him into drinking saltwater.
  • Prince Charmless: Described by Raffina as such in Fever 2 upon realizing he's the Prince Charming she was trying to find. Otomo prefers to think he's Prince Charming, even though he's not.
  • Princesses Prefer Pink: Gender inverted. He's a pink-colored minnow/pink-haired boy who happens to be a prince.
  • Promoted to Playable: Quest marks the first fully playable appearance of his human form.
  • Punny Name:
    • Prince Shellbrick the Third is an oceanic creature.
    • Japanese version only: The name of his fish-form, "Sakana Ōji" ("Fish Prince"), is actually short for his given name: Salde-Canarl.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His fishy form is pink. Even when turned back into a human, his clothes are mostly pink.
  • Rich Boredom: He constantly flees from his castle and pulls pranks on Otomo because he dislikes the 'dull' life of a prince. He tells Raffina that he feels confined despite all the riches and fame he has.
  • 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.
  • Signature Move: Similarly to Rulue, every appearence of his has Dolphin Smash as his first spell, and Trident Billow as his strongest attack in his fish form.
  • Significant Birth Date: He is a Pisces.
  • Spell Theme: Most of his spells mentioned marine life or other ocean-based things (Dolphin Smash, Whale Charge, Crust Guard...)
  • Stealth Pun: In all of his main-series appearences, his first spell is Dolphin Smash. In France, the Crown Prince is called "Dauphin". "Dauphin" means dolphin.
  • Stripped to the Bone: His defeat animation has him left to a skeleton.
  • Super-Deformed: In his fish form, his arms got shorter and his head got bigger since 20th.
  • Terrestrial Sea Life: He, like Suketoudara before him, is an anthropomorphic fish who can somehow breathe above water. The breathing on land part can be justified since the Prince actually is biologically a human, but willingly chose to become a fish to avoid his royal duties.
  • Unexplained Recovery: He was eaten twice, and still appears in new games.
  • Ye Olde Butchered English: In Fever as well as Fan Translations of the following games, he is given this dialect from his Katakana-heavy speech. This is absent in Tetris.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is pink in his human form.

     Possessed Klug (The Demon) 

Possessed Klug/The Demon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_ayakrug.png
Character Color: Red
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Mie Sonozaki (Japanese)

Heh, dare you demand I return your classmate's body?

A demon possessing Klug's book, Possessed Klug (aka "The Demon") 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.


  • 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.
  • Ambiguous Situation: He appears in place of Klug's adult form in 7, which is even acknowledged in story mode victory quotes, but the exact meaning of why that is remains unclear. It could just be a case of Klug botching the transformation spell or a hint that the demon will possess him again in the future, maybe even permanently. This is also hinted by how Klug’s Leitmotif includes the Demon’s theme from Fever 2.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Has a noticeably darker skin color then regular Klug.
  • Anti-Villain: No matter how smug he is, he just wants his body back. It is not known if he ever did anything even remotely evil before being sealed.
  • Ascended Extra:
    • While he could already be seen in Klug's book in Fever, his presence went entirely unacknowledged and he had no known background yet. In Fever 2 he became the Final Boss, gaining both a backstory and his Possessed Klug form.
    • In a reversal of their usual roles it's Possessed Klug who appears as a playable character in the mobile title Kotodaman, while Klug himself only appears as a sealed spirit.
  • Asshole Victim: On one hand, he's cocky and smug. On the other, he was the victim of an undeserved prank that's left him without a body for decades at least.
  • Autobots, Rock Out!: Crimson Wave! certainly doesn't hold back on the guitar.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: Is the second evil character that has dark intentions, coming after Doppelganger Arle and predating Ecolo, Rafisol and Squares.
  • Badass Baritone: His English voice acting in his Tetris 2 DLC appearance has an impressively deep and intimidating pitch.
  • 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.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: His “Even Stranger” alt in Quest bestows him with both immense power and a very snazzy suspenders-and-jacket combo with red and purple accents.
  • Big Bad: Technically, he's this in Fever 2, but see below...
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Under normal circumstances, he would be the Big Bad in Fever 2's HaraHara courses, being responsible for their plots' creation and keeping the items the main characters are looking for, but Possessed Klug himself is treated like just another obstacle to Raffina and Sig's goals, and both ignore him after getting what they want. Only Akuma and Lemres regard him with at least some seriousness. Akuma tries to obstruct Sig from entering the ruins and gives him a charm that prevents the demon from taking over his body, while Lemres ropes Amitie into helping by challenging her to a Puyo battle in which the winner would go on to rescue Klug.
  • 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.
  • Breaking Old Trends: Possessed Klug references the series's tendency to create doppelgangers from main characters (most notably Doppelganger Arle and Rafisol). However, Possessed Klug is not a doppelganger, instead being Klug affected by a Demonic Possession, but he's not even the Evil Counterpart of the character he looks similar to — Possessed Klug is the Evil Counterpart of Sig.
  • Bullying a Dragon: If Raffina loses against him, he comments on how she was the one to take a beating after she boasts about being able to thrash him.
  • The Bus Came Back: After making a cameo as Klug's adult transformation in 7 and alternate costume in 20th, he makes his triumphant return as a separate playable character in Tetris 2's second wave of DLC.
  • The Cameo:
    • He appears as Klug's adult transformation in 7.
    • In Tetris's Chapter 9, he's mentioned by Klug when he tells Schezo the mere sight of Sig made his book start acting crazy.
    • While absent from the game proper he does make a brief surprise appearance on the Drama CD that came with collectors editions of Chronicle.
  • Cape Swish: Does this in his 20th by holding it in his hands and turning.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Makes no effort to hide his real identity or motives.
  • 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, Possessed Klug doesn't seem to have teeth period. Played more straight in Quest, where his golden form has a very sharp grin.
  • Concepts Are Cheap: Double Subverted; Possessed 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: It's on the label in Champions.
  • Demoted to Extra: After Fever 2, Possessed Klug only makes occasional appearances via bonus content or cameos, such as Klug's adult form in 7 or as one of the alternative characters that can be purchased in 20th. It took until Tetris 2 to return as an independent playable character.
  • Divergent Character Evolution:
    • Inverted. Klug and Possessed Klug had different AI, dropsets, and chain power in Fever 2. However, because Possessed Klug is considered an alternative character to Klug in 20th, they now share the same AI (only when the "Core AI" code is activated), dropsets, and chain power.
    • Inverted back to its original state in Tetris 2, when he returned as a playable character. Possessed Klug regained his Fever 2 dropset, diverging him from Klug compared to his appearance in 20th, and they have different AIs.
  • Dub Name Change: A weird Zig-Zagged case, somewhat similar to Onion Pixie. While his Japanese name, Ayashii Kurūku (あやしいクルーク), more accurately translates to "Suspicious Klug", he is referred to as Strange Klug even by in-game English text... except when he's called Ayashii Klug. Eventually this whole matter would be settled (to the disgruntlement of the fandom) in Champions by just calling him "Possessed Klug" in the English version. However, Japanese merchandise revealed in September 2019 gave Possessed Klug some merch... and he is now Possessed Klug regardless of region.
  • 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.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • He's surprised to find out Raffina is not in the slightest interested in saving Klug after she finds out what happened to him.
    • It's also implied in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 that he works from within the book to protect Klug from Marle's corruption (though that might just be due to not wanting to get caught up in the ensuing insanity.)
    • In the 25th Anniversary Drama CD, after possessing Klug yet again, all he does is unseal a puppy (for the sole reason that he finds being sealed to be really boring). Klug wakes up later on to still have the puppy with him.
  • 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.
    • Judging from the reactions of the other characters, it is unclear whether or not the costume switch is visible to the other characters in-universe, i.e. is just convenient shorthand for the players’ eyes only. Raffina seems not to notice anything different until pointed out, and Amitie could tell by his wearing different glasses, which are unchanged to the players.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: While all his appearances qualify, special mention should go to his English voice in Tetris 2, which strains suspension of disbelief regarding what should be possible for the pubescent vocal chords of Klug's body.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Final Boss: He's the final opponent in all three HaraHara courses in Fever 2.
  • Foreshadowing: Gets a bit of it in Fever 1, despite him not debuting until Fever 2.
    • The manual, in both English and Japanese, describes a rumor that Klug is possessed by a demonic spirit.
    • While the demon takes a more jester-esque appearance for the most part, if Klug makes a strong enough chain, it takes a much stronger form while Klug laughs maniacally. In later games, this would be where Klug uses Gravity Strike.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: And despite it not being noticeable, those glasses are the most prominent difference in-universe from regular Klug (no, not his red clothes, tanned skin or lack of a hat), at least judging by Amitie.
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: His Quest variant Yellow Possessed Klug, where the demon turns bright gold rather than his usual red.
  • Gratuitous Latin: 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 .
  • Humanity Ensues: The original demon is stated to have turned into a human boy after losing the part of his soul that was sealed in the Tome. He apparently also lost his memory of his life before the change, which is probably why Sig seems unaware of the demonic ancestry in his bloodline.
  • Jerkass to One: A downplayed case of being Cruel to One. Possessing Sig's body is his sole goal, and while he doesn't really care about the well-being of anyone else, he'd rather leave them alone unless they are actively in his way to Sig (contrast his retaliation against Amitie and Raffina in Fever 2, when they tried to take the items that fueled his possession, to his 25th Anniversary Drama CD appearance where he mostly dismisses Amitie, Ringo, and Ally and is solely interested in the sealed puppy).
  • 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.
  • Leitmotif: The main melody of his battle theme, ''Crimson Wave!'', serves as one for him. It also reoccurs in all of Klug's and Sig's character themes in 15th and 20th (starting at 0:01 for "I'm the Greatest, Ever", 0:27 for "In the Middle of a Stroll", 0:53 for "Nebula Step" and 0:48 for "Easygoing March"), though it is generally more difficult to notice in Sig's themes, due to being remixed into a major key for them.
  • Light Is Not Good: While normally Dark Is Evil, his Yellow Possessed Klug alt in Quest has his normally-red clothes, shadow and book changed to bright yellow and white. He's still the same, evil demon bent on hunting Sig down.
    • In addition, his English alternate voice in Tetris 2 has him swap out all mentions of darkness with that of light.
  • 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, which might explain his antisocial nature.
  • Lost in Translation: Or, in this case, a lack of translation. Possessed Klug retains "Hydrangea" as his final spell in the English version of Tetris 2, but Sig doesn't (using "Cobalt" instead), removing the significance of both having the same final spell.
  • 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 Dark Prince. However, Possessed 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:
    • Towards the Madou Monogatari series and its tendency to have red, evil lookalikes of other characters.
    • As for Nyx, Ignis just had to be followed by another word ending with an "s" sound — just like most of Doppelganger Arle's spells (Abyss, Chaos, Labyrins, Eclipse, Grand Cross).
  • Neat Freak: His special skill listed on Fever 2's website is "cleaning".
  • Nerd Glasses: Large oval frames, just like Klug's. Amitie claims they're a different pair, even though they look exactly the same.
  • No-Sell: It's implied he's the reason Sig and Klug were not affected by Marle's corruption in Tetris 2.
  • 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 Possessed Klug.
  • 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.
  • Pet the Dog: Surprisingly enough, the 25th Anniversary Drama CD has him unseal a puppy from its prison, even if it was admittedly because he found being sealed to be really dull...
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Despite being called an "evil spirit", the evilest thing he has done in the entire franchise so far was possess Klug, gloat a bunch, and then immediately get beat up by Sig, Raffina and Amitie in quick succession. Lampshaded during a Super Sentai parody in Drama CD#4:
    Amitie: "Found you, Evil General of the Garbage Puyo Empire! Out with it, what are you doing here!?"
    P!Klug: "I was cleaning up the town's litter, then wanted to go to the library, but got assaulted by a fish and almost had my book stolen from me by a pair of ghosts."
    Lidelle: "Um... That... doesn't sound particularly evil..."
  • Popularity Power: He quickly became an Ensemble Dark Horse 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.
  • Powers via Possession: Inverted in Fever 2, where Possessed Klug uses some of Klug's spells. The demon seems to be limited by Klug's lack of magical prowess, as he laments that he would be much more powerful in his normal body. In later games this is averted and Possessed Klug uses his own spell set independent from Klug's, though Ignis is retained from both Klug's original appearances and his own debut.
  • 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.
  • Reluctant Monster: He never did anything wrong (never even leaving his castle) before being the victim of a very cruel prank that ripped half his soul from his body. He possesses Klug with the goal of returning to his previous body, as he is otherwise unable to move, being stuck in a book. On the other hand, he is fairly smug about all this.
  • Rule of Perception: The only in-game difference between Klug and Possessed Klug is the glasses they wear, according to Amitie.
  • 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 Possessed Klug revealing 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.
  • The Shut-In: Apparently never left his castle before being sealed.
  • Signature Move: Has his own Hydrangea spell, though it's very different from Sig's version.
  • Significant Birth Date: June 16 (6/16), the same birthday as Sig.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: In Quest. His monologue lines make it very clear that his main motivation for going on quests is to chase Sig down, even if he has to scour through all of Pwurp Island to archive that goal.
  • Suddenly Voiced: In a way and not that we get to hear it for ourselves, but Klug getting yelled at, by a voice in his book, in Puyo Puyo Tetris is the first time we ever get a hint of the demon being able to vocally express himself while stuck in his sealed spirit form.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The demonic half of Sig's soul.
  • Theme Naming: Played with. He shares Nebula and Ignis with Klug, but then uses Oxblood. 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.
  • Tranquil Fury: Quest notes that he is far more furious about being sealed away then his calm behavior let's on.
  • 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".
  • The Unreveal: The flavor text for his 7-Star card in Quest briefly teases the reveal of his true name, only to cut it off and describe the rest of the text as faint and unreadable.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Similar to Sig's spirit barely anyone ever pays any mind to his spirit form in Klug's book. Not even Klug himself, which is especially odd when the book starts to act up and yell at him in Puyo Puyo Tetris and Klug never mentions the demon at all, almost as if he wasn't even aware of his presence in the book.
  • Villain Ball: Says his plan out loud. Three times.
  • Wicked Cultured: He looks suave for a Puyo villain, owned a castle when he had a body, and was a bookworm by nature.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Is handily defeated three times in a row in Fever 2, before he is even able to do much as the Big Bad. The demon himself notes several times that he is unable to use his full power while stuck in Klug's body, implying that he has to rely on the magic power of his host body and won't be able to regain his full strength unless he is able to restore his old self.
  • You Fool!: Calls Klug an idiot for unsealing him.

Dapper Bones

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img103006_l_6373.png
Character Color: Red
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voice 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, Dark Prince, not to mention a win quote against Ocean Prince:
    "Be sure to invite a lot of nice gentlemen to the ball."
  • Always Camp: Fashionista that isn't afraid to tell off the unfashionable, sprinkles French in his spells, a bit of a drama king, into men...yep, he checks out.
  • 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.
  • Ascended Extra: Was merely a minor opponent in Fever, but became far more prominent in Fever 2 as both a Shopkeeper and the original owner of the Memory of Chu, an item that a small sub-plot outside the main story revolves around.
  • 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 Dapper Bones 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: Helps that he's undead.
  • 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: And he will tell you if you're not fashionable.
  • 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: He flirts with Zoh Daimaoh, who is an elephant, when he wins against him in his story.
  • 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".
  • Losing Your Head: Common in his hit animations.
  • Meaningful Name: Oshare means "Stylish". It's all he cares about. Also, his Japanese name, Oshare Koube, contains "sharekoube" which means skull. Champions localizes his name to Dapper, which is a synonym of the aforementioned "Stylish".
  • 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: Though he can be a decent person, the laugh makes him come off as mildly vain towards the unfashionable.
  • 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.
  • Stepford Smiler: Implied. He is generally silly and quite friendly, if easily offended when something doesn't fit his fashion standards, but most things related to his past and romantic life show a sadder side of his character. He has a lover who he hasn't seen in a long time and wants to reunite with, threw away a gift from said lover, feeling he no longer deserved it and got rid of his photos from when he was alive, because he considers the memories attached to them to be too painful.
  • Took a Level in Badass: AI-wise, at least. In 15th he can finally rotate his Puyo, and since he doesn't show up after that, it's possible that this has stuck.
  • Spell Theme: You can just barely call his spell this, as almost all of them are insults to his opponent.
  • 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 Mouse?: 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.

Character Color: Green
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced 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.


  • Abnormal Ammo: He can spit acorns as his main form of attack.
  • Animal Talk: Frogs and onions can somehow communicate, as he has one entire scene trading ribbits and onions with Onion Pixie.
  • Blush Sticker: They help him look cute.
  • Bouncing Battler: As depicted in his attack animations.
  • Bullet Seed: With acorns instead of seeds.
  • The Cameo: While absent from the game proper, he does briefly appear in a Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 4koma.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • In Puyo Tetris, along with Onion Pixie. Only appears to make Schezo Squee!.
    • His playability in Chronicle is limited to the Skill Battle and RPG modes.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Fittingly for an acorn frog, his name means "acorn frog" in Japanese.
  • Expy: Of Nohoho. To the point of using the exact same AI...
  • Floating in a Bubble: His counter animation makes him form a bubble barrier.
  • Hidden Depths: According to 20th, Donguri Gaeru is seeking to find out the wisdom beneath Puyo battles. Or so Maguro thinks.
  • A Kind of One: Donguri Gaeru is actually part of a species of identical looking acorn frogs, which was hinted at in the games and eventually shown in the Light Novel Satan's Space Amusement Park. While never outright confirmed, the one who appears in the games seems to be the same one every time, as characters frequently express familiarity with him.
  • Leitmotif: Has "Ribbit Ribbit" for 15th, and the similarly named Ribbit Ribbit☆Riiibbit♪ for 20th.
  • 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!
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The English localization for Tetris changes his name from Dongurigaeru to Donguri Gaeru.

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Frankendad 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. The father is The Unintelligible, and his son has a Verbal Tic.


  • Badass Family: One of the stronger opponents.
  • Drop the Washtub: One drops on the Frankenstein father when large amounts of Nuisance Puyo fall on his field.
  • Dumb Muscle: Frankendad is noted to not be very clever, but also a strong opponent who relies entirely on Puyo skill and physical strength for his moves.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin
  • Family Business: In Puyo, at least.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: Two of them.
  • Hates Being Alone: Frankendad's Fever 2 bio lists being alone as his dislike.
  • Hidden Depths: Frankendad is said to be a good construction worker, while Frankenson does well at working with electricity, perhaps a result of being brought to life by a lightning shock.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: This is what brought the Frankenstein son to life.
  • Punny Name: Frank & Stein. We don't have to spell it out for you.
  • Robo Family: A scientist created the Frankenstein father, who in turn created his Frankenstein son.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: They've been completely absent from the series since Fever 2 (their appearance in Quest notwithstanding).
  • Sweet Tooth: Frankenson is almost never seen without a lollipop and his Fever 2 bio lists candies as one of his likes.
  • Translator Buddy: Frankenson is able to understand his dad's grunting and translates it for other characters.
  • The Unintelligible: Mr. Frankenstein.
  • Verbal Tic: "Freh" and "(My) Daddy says..."
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: Well... you can understand one and not the other. So by default, Frankenson is the serious one.

     Gogotte 

Gogotte

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_gogotte_puyopuyofever2.png
Character Color: Red
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Hisayoshi Suganuma

My special soup, this is. Drink up, drink up.

An 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 and his Quest 6★ and 7★ cards, he was originally a giant that somehow shrank down to normal size. It also mentions him loving honey.
    • His Fever 2 bio mentions that he dislikes sunlight, which may be why his hat covers his eyes.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Notably one of the rare cases of a character having tan skin.
  • Chef of Iron: Many of Gogotte's spells involve using cooking implements.
  • Creepy Good: Despite his very weird behavoir, he's ultimately harmless.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Gogotte has the honor of being the first Puyo character in the Fever-era onwards to demonstrate the two toes style of feet. Which, of course, he demonstrates by never wearing shoes.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: His eyes are not visible due to his hat.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Unless he's losing, he's always got the same smile on his face.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: A rather extreme case compared to other characters, since he appeared in only one game until being brought back in Quest.
  • Spell Theme: Gogotte's spells are all related to different kinds of mushrooms, including fennel, laurel, and even the Mandarin Chinese words for aconite and lingzhi.
  • Strange-Syntax Speaker: The other way around, each half of his sentences is.
  • 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: Never wears anything to cover his chest.

     Hoho (Hohow Bird)

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.
  • Ass-Kicking 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 dive-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 on Raffina in Fever, but misses.
  • Ground Pound: Ho-ho Dynamic.
  • A Kind of One: Implied, his dialogue in Fever indicates that he's part of a species, but no other Hohos ever made any appearance.
  • Large Ham: Comes with the territory of being a superhero, or at least a self proclaimed one.
  • Opaque Nerd Glasses: With shades of Cool Mask.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: As with other characters, he virtually imploded after Fever 2. At least until Quest.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Thinks of himself as one of the best heroes out there.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The English localization for Champions changes his name from Hohow Bird to simply Hoho.
  • 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.

     Onion Pixie 

Onion Pixie

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0405_2352.png
Character Color: Yellow
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced 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.


  • All There in the Manual: According to his in-game Fever 2 bio, Onion Pixy has had it out for Gogotte ever since the latter appeared in the forest.
  • Animal Talk: Apparently onions and frogs can communicate, if Donguri Gaeru's story was an indication.
  • Artificial Stupidity: Yet another member of the "No-Rotation" club. That being said, for some reason he was able to in 15th, but then never again after that.
  • Berserk Button: He doesn't like being called cute. The sight of Sig also provokes him.
  • Butt-Monkey: His story in 20th. Absolutely no one takes him seriously, due to a combination of being cute and no one understanding his speech. Getting mistranslated by Ringo, nearly eaten by Draco, Rulue attacking him out of rage, etc.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Though "big" is relative in this case.
  • Characterization Marches On: He had little personality to speak of in Fever, as he only appears to poke Raffina's butt and barely even shows any reaction when she demands a Puyo match in return. Fever 2 would introduce his love for Oniko and one-sided rivalry with Sig, while 15th established his desire to prove himself as strong, in order to impress and protect Oniko.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • In Puyo Tetris, along with Donguri Gaeru. Only appears to make Schezo Squee!.
    • Skill Battle and the main RPG mode are the only modes in Chronicle where he is playable.
  • 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.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Some of his animations require this.
  • Happily Married: With Oniko, according to her Quest Flavor Text.
  • 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.
  • The Illegible: He once tried to write a angry letter for Sig, only for said letter to be completely unreadable.
  • A Kind of One: Later games would establish that Onion Pixies are actually an entire race of creatures who all look the same, including female Onion Pixies, who all look like... Oniko (lampshaded in Amitie and the Girl of Love), although it's clear that the Onion Pixie that makes playable appearances in the games is always the one who has a bone to pick with Sig for stealing (his) Oniko's affections.
  • Leitmotif: Has "Onion Forest" in 15th.
  • Meaningful Name / Punny Name: His head is an onion, but he's also an oni!
  • Mirror Match: Ends up in a Puyo match with another Onion Pixie, near the end of his story in 20th.
  • Perpetual Frowner: And his wife is a Perpetual Smiler.
  • Planimal: Part onion, part... pixie?
  • 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.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Was named Onion Pixy in the localized release of Fever. Tetris and Champions went with Onion Pixie instead.
  • Unknown Rival: Considers Sig his rival for Oniko's affections and will get enraged when he's nearby. Sig has no idea about any of this since he can't understand Onion Pixie's language.

     Oniko 

Oniko

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img102303_l.png
Character Color: Red
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.


  • Assist Character: Attacks together with Onion Pixie in his final chain animation.
  • Blush Stickers: To emphasize her cuteness and femininity.
  • Happily Married: With Onion Pixie, according to her Flavor Text in Quest.
  • Inter Species Romance: Initially falls in love with Sig instead of Onion Pixie, but she gets past this for the most part. Quest implies she may still have some latent feelings for the former, but she has no intention on acting upon them as she is Happily Married to Onion Pixie, if her Quest Flavor Text is of any indication.
  • A Kind of One: Is a member of a species of identical looking creatures, with the female ones all resembling Oniko. With that said the one who appears in the games is clearly the same character every time, since her fondness for Sig is still frequently brought up.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Contrasting Onion Pixie.
  • Planimal: Part onion, part... pixie?
  • Promoted to Playable: Quest is the first time she has ever been playable.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: She's just like Onion Pixie, but even cuter.
  • Satellite Love Interest: She only exists as Onion Pixie's motivator.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Wears a small red bow on her head and wears a dress to differentiate herself from Onion Pixie.

     Otomo 

Otomo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3edd54f6_0310_4c06_9adf_d0af68470b77.png

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Hisayoshi Suganuma

The moment I take my eyes off of him, the Prince sure loves to turn and run off...

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.


  • Ascended Extra: In the regular games Otomo is purely a supporting character in NPC roles, Quest meanwhile not only allows him to ascend to playable status, but also gives him three alt cards and his own Story Quest to star in.
  • Assist Character: He appears for Ocean Pince's counter and to take hits directed at him in 15th.
  • Battle Butler: Downplayed. He only cameos in some of Ocean Prince's animations in 15th, 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 the 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.
  • Butt-Monkey: As if his constant failures to catch Ocean Prince weren't bad enough, 20th also reveals that he is a frequent victim of pranks set up by the prince.
  • 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.
  • The Ghost: 15th's story mode has an odd case of this; Ocean Prince calls to Otomo several times in cutscenes and post-match lines, but the butler himself never appears on-screen or even utters a word during cutscenes and nobody besides Salde ever even implies that he is present at all. He does show up in Salde's counter and damage animations, but never in the story proper.
  • 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!: Otomo never catches a break when trying to reel in the Prince, and laments on this when the latter does escape.
    (In Fever 2) "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 typically support-based selection of cards.
  • Promoted to Playable: Quest is the first time a player can use him in battle.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He is good enough at knitting to have it listed as his special talent.
  • Support Party Member: Save for the Serious version, Otomo in Puyo Quest is generally focused on supportive utility, whether it be being the classic healer, or powering up the party's attack strength.
  • 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, circumstances always result in him managing to escape, whether it be the Prince's mischief, or simply giving the slip.

     Tartar (Tarutaru) 

Tartar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/82b7c998_7bee_4d3e_b219_e3790ca605da.png

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced 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, Tartar 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.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: He's pretty much this to Raffina.
  • Beady-Eyed Loser: Not necessarily a loser, but Raffina doesn't seem to have much of a high opinion of him.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: As informed in his bios, when someone or something he cares about is harmed/in danger of being harmed, he's capable of unbelievable strength.
  • Big Fun: He is quite large, but outside of Puyo battles he is a very caring and sociable person.
  • Color-Coded Characters: All Primp students are designed to feature one of the five Puyo colors prominently in their designs. Tartar was the original blue member of the class, until he disappeared from the non-Quest games and Sig took his place in class.
  • Costume Evolution: Is the only student who didn't get this aside from Quest.
  • Expy: He shares a couple of traits with Minotauros.
  • The Friends Who Never Hang: Despite being singled out as an especially close friend to Lidelle, he wouldn't actually get any proper on-screen interactions with her until Quest.
  • Full-Contact Magic: How he uses his spells in Fever 1 and 2.
  • Gentle Giant: He really doesn't like to pick fights unless he's provoked into taking action.
  • Gonk: Has a very distinct appearance, compared to the rest of the cast.
  • Hidden Depths: According to Quest, he's actually quite adept at treating injuries.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Raffina wants nothing to do with him, as she already Has a Type.
  • Martial Pacifist: According to Quest (and as implied via his Fever and Fever 2 bios), he prefers to solve matters without resorting to violence. This said, his same bios also go on to make a notable point about his abnormal strength once someone or something he cares about is harmed/in danger of being harmed...
  • Nature Lover: This said, the only animal he dislikes are spiders.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Compared to the rest of the humanoid characters of the cast, he's the only one with a considerably large and round body, and a round head. He also has a distinct, round nose.
  • The Nose Knows: He apparently can pick up Raffina's scent. Thank goodness his nose is not keen enough to track her.
  • 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.
    • Quest has him lampshade his removal from the mainstream games as well, with him stating that he 'hates being left behind'.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Similar to cases like Raffina and Lidelle, Puyo Puyo Fever initially spelled his name as "Tarutaru", before Puyo Puyo Champions finally changed it to "Tartar".
  • Stout Strength: Though he is easily the biggest student of the class, his abilities also consist of physical attacks and causing earthquake faults.
  • Undying Loyalty: His various bios make a point of affirming that he is quite dependable and loyal, almost to a fault.
  • Verbal Tic: "-(Na) n da na", the Japanese speech tic associated with stupid men.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's enormous and has a deep voice, but it can be inferred that he's in the same age range as Amitie, since they're classmates.

     Yu and Rei 

Yu and Rei

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_img_yuurei.png
Left: Rei, Right: Yu
Character Color: Purple (Yu alone/together), Blue (Rei)
First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever (Yu), Puyo Puyo Fever 2 (Rei)
Voiced by: Tamaki Nakanishi† (Japanese, Fever to Chronicle), Miki Hasuda (Japanese, circa Tetris 2), 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.
  • Ascended Extra: Originally, Yu was nothing more than a minor opponent in Puyo Puyo Fever, with her importance to that game's story being no more greater than the likes of Hoho or the Frankensteins, yet she and her brother have become series staples, only missing out on playable appearances in 7 (the likes of which they didn't even make a cameo appearance in/have a reference being made regarding them), Tetris, and Champions ever since. This gives them a similar record to the likes of Lidelle and Ocean Prince, supporting characters who hold major relationships with members of the main cast (whereas Yu and Rei have none of that outside of a running gag involving Ringo and her fear of ghosts).
  • Assist Character: Rei is pretty much this to his sister, since Yu is the one who actually performs chains and attacks more.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Because of their bangs and hoods that look like a ghost's face, they can give off the appearance of fanged spirits.
  • Barred from the Afterlife: Yu and Rei can't pass on due to a promise Rei made to Yu when they were alive binding them together. Yu doesn't especially mind, while Rei... does.
  • Bedsheet Ghost: Invoked with their pure white cloaks, as Yu believes no one would recognize them as ghosts otherwise. Dapper Bones thinks they could defy this and wear something else, though.
  • Blinding Bangs: Rei.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: As silly as Yu is, she has a warped perspective of what death is. She loves being a ghost due to the benefits of not needing to eat or sleep, and wants to turn others into ghosts because she wants them to experience the same benefits. All while being completely oblivious to the fact that turning people into ghosts would be murder. Even Rei questions Yu's desire to turn people into ghosts, by pointing out that people not wanting to be ghosts is normal behavior.
  • Catchphrase: "You rang?"
  • 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.
  • Cute Ghost Girl: Yu, who looks more like a little girl wearing a Halloween costume. Rei is a gender-inverted example.
  • Demoted to Extra: Zig-Zagged after 15th. They make no appearance in 7, are playable in 20th and in Puyo Tetris they make only one appearance in the main story, in a dream of all places, if only because Ringo accidentally thought of them. They show up again in Act 8, and manage to scare Amitie with their proposed horror show. They're playable in Chronicle, cut in Champions, then return as playable in Puyo Tetris 2.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Yu is as chipper and playful as she always is in 20th, even when she's essentially offering other characters to die. This is especially evident when she tells Maguro she has a high-voltage power line ready to turn him into a ghost...
  • 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, to downright obnoxious levels thanks to all the puns.
  • Ghost Amnesia: Neither of them remember what their past was like. Not that Yu minds, anyhow.
  • Hidden Depths: One of the optional conversations in Fever 2 reveals that Rei is fond of bugs, just like Sig.
  • Leitmotif: "The Ghost Twins Sure Are Popular!"
  • Little Miss Badass: Yu, who happily undergoes what can only be described as an innocent (attempted) murdering spree in 20th.
  • Luck-Based Mission: Like Harpy, they stack the left and rightmost columns with Puyo.
  • Midair Bobbing: Their sprites are always in movement, contrasting everybody else's, who remain static for the most part.
  • 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.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Yu, even when shocked or terrified.
  • 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 .
  • Promoted to Playable: Downplayed for Rei, since he's considered more playable than Oniko and Otomo, but Quest is the first time you can actually use HIM and not Yu.
  • Punny Name: Their names together mean Yurei, or "Ghost".
  • Pungeon Master: Yu is capable of stirring up a Hurricane of Puns when she gets the chance, whether it be in normal conversation or in her riddles.
  • 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★, 6★ and 7★ 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.
  • Running Gag: Expect them to spook the daylights out of Ringo, whenever they cross paths.
  • Satellite Character: Rei, who doesn't have any interactions that don't involve Yu.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Rei is the savvy guy while Yu is the energetic girl.
  • 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).
  • The Smurfette Principle: Yu is the only female character to be featured on the second Vocal CD and even that's in a duet with her brother Rei.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: One of Popoi's trivia bits in 20th states that the shock of becoming a ghost caused Rei to forget something important. Popoi also speculates that this may be the reason why Rei is so quiet.
  • Twin Tropes: Dear lord...
    • Half-Identical Twins: Other than the hair, they look identical with their ghost sheets.
    • 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.
