Back to the main index here.

The following consists of 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 are fairly similar to that of past characters from Compile's run, whether it's from personality, appearance, or abilities.

Let's play Puyo!

The protagonist of the Fever series, Amitie is nice, but a bit ditzy. Her heart is in the right place, and though she's better at reacting to things than Raffina or Sig, she still ends up jumping to wrong conclusions.

  • Aborted Declaration of Love: In the English version of 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. None of this is present in the Japanese version.
  • 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).
  • Asleep in Class: Her story in 20th begins like this.
  • 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.
  • Catchphrase: "Get real!"
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Her mind certainly flows differently.
  • Covert Pervert: 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 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 like Cyclo-Whirl. By Champions, her moveset is now all different save for Flame/Fire.
  • 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.
  • 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; the main difference between them though is that, while Arle was the Only Sane Girl, Amitie isn't. Notably, SEGA flirted with the idea of some Divergent Character Evolution (see Theme Naming below), only to turn around and give Arle's signature Bayoeen spell to Amitie.
  • First-Person Perspective: The Puyo Light Novels are told entirely from her perspective.
  • Genki Girl: Almost infectiously so.
  • Genius Ditz: What she lacks in general intelligence, she makes up for it with talent at Puyo.
  • Good Is Dumb: She really means well, but is very, very scatterbrained at times.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Very kind and friendly, even more so than either Arle or Ringo.
  • 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 that everybody will know you're talking about Amitie if you mention a red puyo cap. 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.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: When participating in a beauty contest during Satan's Space Amusement Park, Amitie reveals that she's not exactly 'fashion-conscious' as her outfit of choice is so garish, 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.
  • In-Series Nickname: Lidelle calls her "Ami-san".
  • 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.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Since 7 changed her Puyo hat to her current beanie, Amitie has been the only Primp student to not have the school's wing symbol anywhere in her standard design, though she does regain it in her transformations in 7 and higher rank cards in Quest.
  • 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 Latin; she's possibly one of (if not the MOST) the friendliest characters in the entire franchise.
  • Nice Hat: Her puyo cap, which makes her instantly recognizable.
  • Nice Girl: The word "hate" doesn't seem to exist in her vocabulary. While she may call them 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.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The nice one with Klug/Raffina and Sig.
  • Parasol of Prettiness: Carries one as Stylish Amitie in Puyo Quest.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: The Pink Girl to Sig's Blue Boy, in her current design.
  • Power Gives You Wings: As she evolves in Puyo Quest, she gets decorated with wings as displayed in her Silver and her Gold forms.
  • 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.
    • In 20th, she claims her hat has never left her head, which outright contradicts a few of her gameplay animations.
  • 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 15th, where he becomes oddly concerned about Amitie's well-being in her story. They both tag along to help each other in their 20th Anniversary scenarios, and 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). It doesn't help that she becomes notably relieved after Ally clarifies that she's not IN love with Sig, but rather admires his love of bugs.
    • Additionally, in Amitie and the Girl of Love, Amitie unconsciously comments on Sig's "beautiful" eyes out loud, 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 Bayoeen.
  • Significant Birth Date: May 5, Children's Day.
  • 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 Cyclone Whirl 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, though not by that much.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Enjoys wearing pink hearts and stuff, even if her attitude is generally boyish.
  • Totally Radical: Some of her dialogue in the English version of Fever.
  • 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.
  • V-Sign: Her Victory Pose of choice.
  • 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.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A as Sweet Amitie in Puyo Quest, starting from Silver rarity.

     Raffina (Raffine) 

Raffina

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced by: Noriko Namiki (Japanese), Brett Walter (English, Puyo Pop Fever), Erica Lindbeck (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
Stage Actor: Aya Kinoshita
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_pic_11.png
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: Good luck finding one moment in the series where she is not being mean towards anyone.
  • Amplifier Artifact (originally) / Amulet of Concentrated Awesome (from PPF2 onwards): Her pouch.
  • Anti-Hero: She saves the day once in a while? She does. Heroic disposition? Nope.
  • The Beautiful Elite: Not only is she fairly attractive, but she also owns quite the vast fortune.
  • 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.
  • Bitch Alert: The most noticeable thing she's ever done is say "Damn! If it isn't Mr. Goody Two Shoesnote ". In an E-Rated Game.
  • Biting the Handkerchief: Should she be defeated in a Puyo match.
  • 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.
  • 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: From the Primp ARS trio, she was hit the hardest with this. Once one of the protagonists of the Fever era, she lost a lot of her relevance once the series shifted to Suzuran and her rivalry with Amitie hardly gets brought up nowadays. 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: Absent in the English version of Puyo Puyo Tetris, where all foreign attack names were changed to English names.
  • 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.
  • 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 has her moments of slipping into less-than-ladylike 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.
  • Hair Decorations: A single wing hairpin which happens to be the school's emblem.
  • 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's anywhere close to being an idiot, though...
  • Irrational Hatred: She mocks really everyone she comes across. Defied by her relationship with Klug, where he very much deserves it.
  • I Take Offense to That Last One!: 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.
  • 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!"
  • 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".
  • Nice Mean And Inbetween: She and Klug can both be considered the mean ones to Amitie's 'Nice' and Sig's 'In-Between'.
  • 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: Her family is mentioned to be pretty important and her usual mannerisms support that. Those who don't treat her with respect often have to prepare themselves for a beating.
  • Pain to the Ass: Comes up in enough places to border on being a minor Running Gag:
    • She has been on the recieving 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 direct reference to said damage animation in 15th, when he treatens Raffina with a Literal Ass-Kicking.
    • An even earlier example occurs in Fever, where Raffina gets poked in the butt by Onion Pixie's spikey club.
  • 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.
  • The Rival: To Amitie, though Fever is the only game where it's really present, with later games prefering 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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 Tomboy.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: It's very, very subtle, especially considering how she still has the occasional jerkass moment, but Raffina appears to have gone through this following Fever 2.
  • Un-Sorcerer: She technically does have magic power, but it's extremely low, facilitating the need to have her pouch to do any sort of spellcasting whatsoever. It's uncertain how weak her magic is without it.
  • 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.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Of varying grades. In Fever, it was Rank B. In Fever 2, it became a Rank C or D and stayed that way until 20th, where it returned to Rank B.

     Sig 

Sig

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Yuriko Fuchizaki (Japanese), Ben Diskin (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)
Stage Actor: Ayana
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_pic_07.png

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 "neutral side" of a demon that is currently residing in Klug's book. This neutral side was split off when the demon was sealed away in the book, which in turn created Sig's 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", or when corrected, "Waffina".
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Battle Butler: Fills this role while helping out Ocean Prince, in Fever 2.
  • Beetle Maniac: In official art, he usually has a beetle on his head. For 20th Anniversary, his shirt has a beetle on it.
  • Berserk Button: 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.
  • Book Dumb: Flavor text for his Dilligent 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.
  • 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 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 for physical reasons or genuine admiration. This includes (but is not limited to) Rulue, Feli, and even Raffina of all people. It should be noted that the former two are both well-known for their infatuation with the likes of Dark Prince and Lemres respectively, while Raffina has some... pretty interesting standards as to what she wants in a man.
  • 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 suffer from Heart Trauma with their other halves even still being around in the form of Doppelganger Arle and Possessed Klug.
  • 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 in the game's collab with fellow mobile title Pashamon.
    • 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*
  • 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.
  • 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 Weirdness: His obsession with bugs is rarely brought up in Fever 2.
  • Expressive Accessory: Sig's spirit is shown to emote alongside him in Chapter 9 of Puyo Puyo Tetris.
  • Eye Colour Change: His blue eye turned red when he was close to Possessed Klug.
  • Flat Joy: He cheers himself up when challenging Raffina in Chapter 4 in Puyo Puyo Tetris, in a way reminiscent of Droopy. Blatantly Played for Laughs through Unsound Effects:
    Sig: *Crowd-gone-wild-cheer*
  • 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.
  • 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 Colors, Evil Colors: Even with his Duality Motif Sig is far more heavily associated with the color blue, to the point that all his spells are themed after it. His outfits in Fever 2, 15th, Tetris and Quest also all feature a prominent combo of blue/white.
  • 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?: He has, and he enjoys it.
  • 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 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 revert into its demonic form, turning both his arms and eyes red and his hair purple.
  • 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 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 Sig is too spacey and bug-crazy to have actual thoughts on the matter, so it's quite unlikely something will come out of it anytime soon.
  • Japanese Pronouns: He doesn't use a first person pronoun, indicating his lack of a sense of self.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Unlike his classmates and fellow Magic School series representatives, Sig does not receive a variation of his 20th outfit, for his higher rank cards in Quest, but rather a brand new set of clothes.
    • Unlike fellow Fever ARS members Amitie and Raffina, who are expies of Arle and Rulue, respectively, Sig is not an expy of Schezo and has pretty much nothing in common with him. Schezo's traits are instead picked up by Klug and Lemres, while Sig has more in common with Arle and Doppelganger Arle.
  • 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".
  • Literal-Minded: Especially in 15th Anniversary.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: The in-between one with Amitie and Klug/Raffina.
  • Not So Stoic:
    • 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.
  • Oblivious to Love: For all the girls that show any sort of interest on him (romantic or not), 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, and he openly acknowledges her as a friend and gets along with her fine, safe for her occasional outbursts.
  • Our Demons Are Different: His ancestor is the good side 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.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Blue Boy to Raffina's Pink Girl. Also to Amitie, who wears plenty of pink in her current outfit.
  • Pokémon Speak: His DLC voice in the Japanese version of Puyo Tetris makes all of his voice clips entirely this.
  • Protectorate: At the end of Raffina's Hard course in Fever 2, Sig appears and tells Raffina not to advance due to Possessed Klug. Raffina, being Raffina, proceeds to call him greedy and challenges him to a fight.
    • His last opponent in 15th Anniversary is Rulue, who vows to deal with Arle, when learning that her rival is in Primp as well. This in turn, prompts Sig to fight for Arle.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Due to his design favoring blue and having an unnaturally red eye and arm.
  • Purple Is Powerful: When he starts reverting to his original form in Sig's Secret, his hair becomes purple.
  • 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.
  • 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 couse Sig isn't interested at all, but he still remains a walking Berserk Button for the 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?"
  • Serious Business: Bug-collecting and bug-caretaking is EVERYTHING to this kid.
  • Ship Tease: In the light novel Amitie and the Girl of Love, Sig himself seemingly begins to wonder if he truly is in love with Amitie once the subject is brought up.
    • Sig shows a remarkable amount of devotion towards Arle in his 15th story. He understands her feelings of homesickness attempts to help her find a way home via a Puyo match and offers to meet up again later in one of his victory quotes. He later meets Rulue and declares that he will fight for Arle, when Rulue angrily lets slip that she wants to confront her rival.
  • 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 fifth.
  • Significant Birth Date: June 16 (6/16), the same birthday 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 one line of his flavor text quotes in Quest is 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 
  • Supernatural Martial Arts
  • 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.
  • 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 are often a blue color as well. 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. His "Happy" alternate voice in 20th and his English alternate in Puyo Tetris defy this, having him express much more emotion than normal.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: In his signature aqua color.

Major Supporting Characters

     Feli 

Feli

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?

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/452788.jpg
Lemres' underclass woman, Feli hails from the same town and school as her senior. With a dark and mysterious personality to match her gothic lolita dress, she's also skilled in the occult art of divination. 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • I Know Your True Name: Mentions that she can curse people if she knows their true name in 15th.
  • The Jail Bait 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.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Klug, Amitie, and especially Ringo find her attitude creepy.
  • Not So Stoic: Goes ballistic in 15th when Klug says he'll "become like Lemres". Of course, the moment's played for laughs, with Klug not helping.
  • Palm-on-Cheek Pose: When she takes major damage in Puyo Tetris.
  • Power Gives You Wings: She sports a pair of purely decorative angel wings as White Feli. As for where the power part applies, White 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.
  • Seer: 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.

     Klug 

Klug

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced by: Mie Sonozaki (Japanese), Thessaly Lerner (English, Puyo Pop Fever)
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.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f41a808fd2f685b0cc0509e482e66b10c2c30af7_00.jpg
Local genius of Primp Town, Klug serves as a sort of Mr. Exposition, with knowledge of several events (but never willing to reveal them).
  • Adjusting Your Glasses: By the bridge in Fever 1 and 2 and 15th, and by the corner in 20th.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Asshole Victim: He's at the same time a Jerkass and a Butt-Monkey, suffering from Demonic Possessions from time to time, and being picked on by Raffina and Feli, among others.
  • Aesop Amnesia: He's possessed by his book in Fever 2. Still has it with him in 15th. Still with him in 7. Still with him in 20th. And no, he didn't find a way to get rid of the demon. Lemres lampshades this in 7, but Klug just tells him it's under control. And in Tetris, all it takes for the demon to get crazy again (no possession this time, however) is Sig walking past Klug — taking Schezo to calm it down.
  • Bookworm: So he says.
  • Birds of a Feather: Shares a moment in Puyo Quest with fellow dark magic practitioner Miriam. He even declares him as a rival!
  • 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.
  • Conflict Ball: Drops these so much you'd think it would be For the Evulz.
  • 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.
  • 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. He claims to have it under control according to a 7 victory quote, but seeing as the book begins acting up again in Tetris and Klug is powerless to stop it until Schezo helps him, this seems unlikely at best.
  • 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.
  • Doomed by Canon: Based on PP7, he will end up being possessed again as an adult, perhaps permanently.
  • Double Take: In Tetris's English dub, when Schezo announces his intentions towards Sig.
  • Drunk on Milk: The entirety of his story in 20th began with him getting drunk on Witch's Secret Drink. What the heck did she use to make that, anyway!?
    • Mood-Swinger: One of 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.
  • 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".
  • 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?
  • 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's a bit more superficial. He currently holds the book containing the other half of Sig's 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.
  • 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 Colors, Evil Colors: He wears Purple as a neutral color, but borderlines on "evil".
  • Good Is Not Nice: He does not have bad intentions, and occasionally helps the heroes, but he's a Jerkass towards everyone bar Lemres (whom he idolizes) and Feli (whom he's terrified of).
  • 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: We would be shocked if he actually did something nice that isn't towards Lemres (or Feli, whom he is terrified of talking to).
  • 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.
  • 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'.
  • 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.
  • 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: 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.
  • Signature Laugh: UHYAHYAHYAHYA!
  • 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.
  • 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 Amitie, her 'A' Trio friends and occasionally 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 Dumb to Live: Have we mentioned he's still carrying around a book that could, apparently, possess him at any moment? Let's take this small part from The Record of the Sealing, an in-game book, just to show you what went wrong in Fever 2:
    You should not open this book near the 3 items I have written in the page before. The seal will be broken and there the "evil soul" will... (too smudged to read)
  • 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 chokehold as well.
  • 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

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Takumi Yamazaki (Japanese), Ben Diskin (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)

Now then, Mr Akuma. Shall we play our game of Puyo? If I win, you'll be given five candies. Okay?

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/puyo_puyo_tetris_41.jpg
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: He uses anti-aging magic, similar to Ms. Accord.
  • Bad Liar: Lies to Sig about not knowing about his demonic red arm and immediately follows up by saying he's not lying about it.
  • 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: Is a famous warlock; popular enough to appear in magazines.
  • Butt-Monkey: In his debut game, anyway. The ending of each of the WakuWaku routes in Fever 2 ends with him being beat up in some form. Sure, Sig undid his, but it's only until Amitie finds out that he's the visitor in question, and is dragged to Primp Town, still beaten up. In 20th anniversary, he is beaten up by Witch after calling her potions weird.
  • Camp Straight: In 15th, after mistaking Schezo's desire for his power as flirting with him, he explains he's not interested in men.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Some of his stranger actions (such as turning the ocean into milk in 15th) and giving Klug a book with a powerful demon sealed inside place him into this trope.
  • Color-Coded Wizardry: Is clad in dark green.
  • Compressed Abstinence: His story's plot in 20th. He attempts to wean himself from using candy to power his magic, and it goes about as well as you'd expect from a guy with a Sweet Tooth.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 a Heroic Albino.
  • Flying Broomstick: Carried one around prior to 20th, where he switches it out for his wand. Though, as Sig's Secret shows, he can simply conjure one up with a wave of his wand.
  • Foil: To Witch. Both are comet magicians, but where Witch is hyperactive and self-centered, Lemres is calm and friendly.
  • Green Thumb: His spell Foret Noire in 15th summons a swirl of leaves.
  • Instant Expert: Tee teaches him how to play Tetris. Lemres catches on fast enough that he claims he could even beat Tee... and does so in the next stage.
  • Lost in Translation: The pun in Uncanny Lemres is lost when translated. The adjective is spelled "おかしな". If you drop the な (Na), you get おかし, which, fittingly, is the word for "sweets".
  • Madness Mantra: He gets a bit...loony under sweets withdrawal.
    • "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
  • Nice Guy: Once you get past the suspicious implications, he's really kind at heart.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Sempai/Kohai: He's Feli's senior.
  • Spell Theme: Rissoler, Rouleau, Sucre Filé, Caramelisér, and Glaçage. 15th Anniversary adds Fariner and Forêt Noire, then 20th Anniversary adds Parfait and Confiture. In translation, minus Parfait (which is a desert), they mean "to brown", "to roll", spun sugar, caramelize, glaze/frosting, "to flour", Black Forest (Cake), and jam. Predictably, they're related to sweets, baking or otherwise.
  • Sweet Tooth: He has an endless supply of them, he makes them himself, and in the Sig's Secret Light Novel, even conjures an abundance of them out of thin air! Justified in that it's his Power Source. Really. He tried to train without his candy for a few days in 20th, but it doesn't go well.
    • Genius Sweet Tooth: Earning his status before he even graduated magic school, he possibly could be this.
  • Sweets O Vision: Happens at one point during his story in 20th. Donguri Gaeru is not a melon gumdrop!
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Sweets, of course. According to his profile in Fever 2, he likes parfaits in particular, and in 15th Anniversary, Feli says his absolute favorite candy is swirly lollipops.
  • Vague Age: It's often debated if Lemres is an adult or not, since Accord confirms he uses anti-aging spells, yet is still a high-schooler for all intents and purposes (he has not graduated yet). And it's unlikely he's held-back considering his status as a prodigy. Moreover, he has an adult Mega form in 7, implying he's still not completely done with puberty yet.
  • Vocal Evolution: Compare his voice in Fever 2 vs. Chronicle. While it's a subtle change, he used to sound much deeper. Ironically, his English voice is nothing like his current Japanese pitch.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Salt is toxic to him. 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.

Ms. Accord

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.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0408_3682.png
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.
  • 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 outright 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.
  • 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.
  • 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: In Puyo Tetris. Appears in a Contrived Coincidence moment at the end of chapter 5 where she tells the cast about a special area they can train in, in order to increase their power and reach the end of time-space.
    • Appears in the final DLC chapter (chapter 10). Since Ex never met her in the real world and only heard about her through Tee's logs, she is the reason that Ex is able to determine that the dream world he's in doesn't belong to him, but to Tee.
  • Eccentric Mentor: Nobody knows anything about her, other than the fact that she's a good teacher with a talking puppet. Lemres, who seems to know the most, is quiet about his knowledge.
  • Eyes 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.
    • Easy Amnesia: Her mallet 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.
  • 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 one after he leaves.
  • The Un-Reveal: 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.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/popoi_221.png
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' villain, appearing suddenly at the end of the WakuWaku and HaraHara courses.

     Ocean Prince (Prince Salde) 

Ocean Prince/Prince Salde

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!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0402_6691.png
Fish Form
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img401102_l.png
Human Form
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: In Puyo Tetris. Appears once in space along with Suketoudara, and demands him to find a way home.
    • He appears in the second DLC chapter (chapter 9) as another one of Schezo's obstacles. He immediately calls Schezo a potential creeper upon noticing his Cuteness Proximity mode, then he runs away.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: A four-point star in both of his eyes.
  • Expy: Of Suketoudara's "talking fish" thing.
  • The Gadfly: It is implied at the end of his 20th Anniversary 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...
  • 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.
  • Making a Splash: His spells.
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: Briefly mentioned at one point, when he got turned back into a human in Fever 2, his food tastes change:
    "Normally I wouldn't consider [the Donguri Gaeru] delicious... but my palate has been altered by this form."
  • Leitmotif: 15th gives him "Ocean Prince ~Graceful Wandering~".
  • 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.
  • Promoted to Playable: Quest marks the first fully playable appearance of his human form.
  • Punny Name: Prince Salde Canarl Shellbrick the Third is an oceanic creature.
  • 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.
  • Super-Deformed: In his fish form, his arms got shorter and his head got bigger since 20th.
  • Unexplained Recovery: He was eaten twice, and still appears in new games.
    • His defeat animation has him left to a skeleton.
  • Was Once a Man: Changed into a minnow by choice.
  • Ye Olde Butchered English: Given this dialect from his Katakana-heavy speech.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is pink in his human form.

     Possessed (Strange) Klug (The Demon) 

Possessed Klug/The Demon

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Voiced by: Mie Sonozaki

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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0422_9615.png
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. He grew popular, though, and made comebacks in future titles, but never as important as he was before (if you can call him important).

  • 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.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Has a noticeably darker skin color then regular Klug.
  • Autobots, Rock Out!: Surge of Crimson Shouts! 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 predates Ecolo.
  • Badass Cape: Wears a ridiculously big and red cape, held onto his body with chains. It's tough enough to take damage for him, too.
  • Big 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 Lemres regards him with at least some seriousness and has Amitie try to defeat him instead of merely taking an item he's keeping.
  • 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 Evil Counterpart 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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 dropsets and chain power.
  • 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 in Champions by just calling him "Possessed Klug" in the English version.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: You can clearly see his little spirit form appearing in some of Klug's sprites in Fever before he shows up in the next game.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Sig, as both are halves of the same demon, with opposite morality.
  • Evil Gloating: And it's all he ever does.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Turns Klug's suit from purple to red, unties his bowtie, dons a cape, untucks his shirt, and messes up his hair.
  • Expansion Pack Past: If you read the Library in Fever 2, you'll find a story titled "Record of the Sealing". According to the book, a man bought a book that was used only for sealing souls, and would seal any one soul when opened. Upon showing it to his friends, they decided to travel up to the castle nearby to seal the demon that lived there, knowing he liked books and would read anything without question. When the demon fell for the trick of opening the book, only the "evil soul" was sucked in; what remained of the "good soul" became Sig's ancestor.
  • 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.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: His Quest variant Yellow Possessed Klug, where the demon turns bright gold rather than his usual red.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: Not quite bloody red, not quite cherry, but knowing previous history in Puyo...
  • 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 .
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Inverted. The man who wrote Record of the Sealing stated that he didn't know what evil deeds the demon had ever done. If this is the case, he just lived alone in his castle, doing nothing noticeable until he was sealed away.
  • Living Shadow: Has a giant red one that looks nearly identical to his form in the book.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Record of the Sealing stated that he lived alone in his castle, which might explain his antisocial nature.
  • Humanity Ensues: Reversed. He went from being "human" to a soul trapped in a book.
  • Magic A Is Magic A: Defied. Even if we're never given a clear image of what the magic in this world is, all things that fly/float often have wings or "flying" in the name, like "magical flying cane" or characters like Draco, Harpy, and 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. They're really an entirely different pair, though, even if they look exactly the same.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He's never properly named, called "Demon" and "evil spirit" in Record of the Sealing, and is known only by 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.
  • 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 Nyx. A new spell from 20th, Anima, can bring you to several different things. "Rubor Vini" is "Wine Red"; you can either take this as a color for red or a sin. His final spell, Hydrangea, he shares with Sig, but has a very different animation for it, with all of his power going into the demonic Living Shadow.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: When he loses, he either looks to the sky and sighsnote  or just sits down on the floornote . In the ending cutscenes for all the HaraHara courses, he doesn't yell or try and run away, but just seems to accept being sealed once more.
  • Throwing Down the Gauntlet: Whines "Come back!" when Sig and the Ocean Prince just walk away after beating him.
  • 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 Un-Reveal: 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.
  • The Villain Makes the Plot: Played With. He did create the plot for all the Hard Courses, and his defeat is the true resolution to the plot. However, freeing Klug is only done by accident, and really all Raffina and Sig wanted were the items he was using to power himself up.
  • Wicked Cultured: He looks suave for a Puyo villain, owned a castle when he had a body, and was a bookworm by nature.
  • 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 (Oshare Bones) 

Dapper Bones

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voice Actor: Makoto Yasumura (Japanese), Mark Atherlay (English, Puyo Pop Fever)

Call the fashion police!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img103006_l_6373.png
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
  • 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
  • Exotic Eye Designs: On top of the severely Mismatched Eyes, his right eye has rings in it that no other character has.
  • Expy: Takes Skeleton-T's role as Fever's talking skeleton.
  • The Fashionista
  • Friendly Neighborhood Skeleton: His fashion evaluations may be harsh, but he seems to be on good terms with many of the other characters. A magazine article in the library in Fever 2 implies that at least some people in town might still be frightened of him, however.
  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: But only in one eye.
  • Going Commando: Amitie actually points this out in Fever 2 as described below. Being a skeleton, however, there's nothing in particular he really needs to cover up.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Male example, but is Camp Gay and certainly acts the part of a lady.
  • Gratuitous English: His spells, Elegant, Psychedelic, and Asymmetry.
  • 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".
  • Lennon Specs: Wears a little orange pair.
  • 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
  • Nobody Over 50 Is Gay: Averted. He's at least 150, but his age when he died is unknown.
  • Purple Is the New Black: Likely, since having a skeleton wear black would be cliche (and unfashionable).
  • Serious Business: Fashion is very much this for him. He'll challenge people to Puyo matches over it, in fact.
  • Shopkeeper: In Fever 2; it sells everything, from summoning items to live fowl.
  • Significant Birth Date: Christmas Eve, which in Japan is a very romantic holiday.
  • 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.

     Donguri Gaeru

Voiced by: Naomi Wakabayashi (Japanese), Ali Johnston (English, Puyo Pop Fever)

Ribbit ribbit!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0404_2559.png
A round frog that rolls around in an acorn top. He has some sort of connection to Amitie, and is often seen singing.
  • Animal Talk: Frogs and onions can somehow communicate, as he has one entire scene trading ribbits and onions with Onion Pixie.
  • Blush Sticker
  • Bouncing Battler: As depicted in his attack animations.
  • Bullet Seed: With acorns instead of seeds.
  • Demoted to Extra: In Puyo Tetris, along with Onion Pixie. Only appears to make Schezo Squee!.
    • His playability in Chronicle is limited to the Skill Battle and RPG modes.
  • Expy: Of Nohoho.
  • Floating in a Bubble: His counter animation makes him form a bubble barrier.
  • 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 15h.
  • 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.

     Onion Pixie 

Onion Pixie

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever
Voiced by: Noriko Namiki (Japanese), Evelyn Huynh (English, Puyo Pop Fever)

Onion! Onion onion!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0405_2352.png
A small oni that lives in the forest. He has a crush on a fellow member of his race, Oniko, and considers himself Sig's rival for her love.
  • Animal Talk: Apparently onions and frogs can communicate, if Donguri Gaeru's story was an indication.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 girlfriend 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

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever 2

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img102303_l.png
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.
  • Inter Species Romance: Initially falls in love with Sig instead of Onion Pixie, yet still has some latent feelings for the former.
  • 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

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

Excuse me, but have you seen the Prince around here?

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img301103_l.png
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!:
    "Boo hoo... Now I must seek him out yet again..."
  • Out-of-Character Moment: "Serious Otomo" in Quest. He looks pissed, and in a meta sense, it focuses more on offense, unlike his normal cards.
  • Promoted to Playable: Quest is the first time a player can use him in battle.
  • Sword Pointing: Serious Otomo in Quest.
  • Taking the Bullet: In 15th, he's the one that receives damage, not Ocean Prince. It's even lampshaded by Ms. Accord in 15th, should you lose to her in Ocean Prince's story.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Ocean Prince, despite Ocean Prince not feeling the same.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Just when he's about to get Ocean Prince, circumstances always result in him managing to escape.

     Tartar (Tarutaru) 

Tartar

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever

A long autumn night underneath a beautiful moon... I'm so fond of it!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tarutaru_997.png
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.
  • Verbal Tic: "-(Na) n da na", the tic associated with stupid men.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's enormous and has a deep voice, but should be in the same age range as Amitie, since they're classmates.

     Yu and Rei 

Yu and Rei

First Appearance: Puyo Puyo Fever (Yu), Puyo Puyo Fever 2 (Rei)
Voiced by: Tamaki Nakanishi (Japanese), Giovani Pico (English, Puyo Pop Fever, Yu only), Cindy Robinson (English, Puyo Puyo Tetris)

Because I'm a ghost. We get the rights to terrorize people. Now, get ready for your final ride!
Get ready.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0406_1691.png
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.
  • 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: In Puyo Tetris. Makes only one appearance in the main story, and in a dream, of all places. They only appear because Ringo accidentally thought of them.
    • They show up again in the first DLC chapter (chapter 8), and manage to scare Amitie with their proposed horror show.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: As mentioned above, Yu is a solo character in Puyo Pop Fever.
  • Fog Feet: Yet, Yu tries to dance without actual legs. Raffina and Suketoudara point out this fact.
  • Genki Girl: Yu, 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, which 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★ and 6★ cards, which depict both, are part of both the Boys and Girls combinations. They are the only characters to switch gender combinations on transformations.
  • The Quiet One: Rei makes Sig look talkative in comparison.
  • Reflectionless Useless Eyes: Because Yu is a ghost. Probably Rei too, but he hides his eyes with bangs.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: Being very quiet and young and having blue hair, Rei is a male example, though as a minor character, he doesn't get much development to show the similarities.
  • 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.
