Puyo Puyo!! Quest information

Akuma is a demon that resembles a giant blue bear doll that serves as the librarian and curator of the Precise Museum in Primp Town. He usually ends his sentences with ma, the second half of kuma, but will say kuma kuma repeatedly when he is worked up. His voice always seems to alternate between quiet and deep and shrill and shrieking, with no middle ground between the two. This part of his personality likely inspired his dropset, which is split between a normal set for one half and large groups for the second.



Akuma resembles a teddy bear, he wears a monocle and a clover-shaped tie. He is primarily dark blue in coloration but has a white mustache, white belly, and pink paw pads. His head floats above his main body, and seems to be able to move independently of it. He also has 2 clouds behind him, which occasionally move like wings.


Akuma is a well-read and highly knowledgeable demon who possesses a generally composed personality. According to Puyo Puyo!! Quest, he has been the curator of the Museum for thousands of years and is very long-lived. He typically speaks slowly and intentionally, providing proverbs and advice to whoever asks. He is also very concerned with the safety of Primp Town as observed by his appearance in Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary where he is opposed to Schezo's appearance for bringing dark magic into the town, and is wary of Accord's and possibly Popoi's presence. Of course he gets riled up over certain things, like when the students disrespect their elders, or Klug's insistence on holding onto the Tome of Sealing through repeatedly renewing it from the library.

He isn't above having fun sometimes, and claims to have been a great breakdancer when he was younger. He also values people learning in the ways that work for them. While much of his knowledge was accumulated through his own readings and studies, he encourages Amitie to find a method of learning that works for her.

His talent is collecting antiques, he likes old books, and he dislikes coffee.


Accord & Popoi
His relationship with Ms. Accord is shrouded in mystery, even moreso his connection to Popoi. He seems to be suspicious of their motives in Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary during her course, and claims that he will tear off the mask that they are hiding behind.
Interestingly, Popoi is the only one to speak to Akuma during this exchange and Accord does not speak in this cutscene at all, despite speaking to the previous opponents.
Akuma's relationship with Klug appears to be somewhat negative, as he's concerned about Klug's attachment to the Tome of Sealing. He claims that it's unfortunate that Klug is the only one who can read it, and comments that it's merely acting as a security item for Klug much like a child's teddy bear. Klug of course, takes insult at being compared to a child.
The connection between Sig and Akuma is mysterious as he seems to be somewhat aware of Sig's origins. During Puyo Puyo Fever 2, he gives Sig the Charm of Kumamori to prevent his soul from resonating with Strange Klug's.
He also shows concern for Sig during Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary, and is aware that his hand is in an unusual state. He remarks that he'd like to cure it if he could, but that doing so would require a special power. He tells Sig to simply wait until the right time for now, as a cure is not in their reach at the moment.


Puyo Puyo Fever 2

There are two occurrences where Akuma is encountered in Puyo Puyo Fever 2's story courses.

In Raffina's WakuWaku course, she asks Akuma if he knows the whereabouts of Prince Salde. He then replies that he does, but will not simply tell anyone who asks. Raffina then promptly challenges Akuma to a Puyo match to force him to tell.

In Sig's HaraHara course, Akuma is the penultimate opponent before Strange Klug. After asking if Sig desires to go further, he warns him of Strange Klug's presence being in the way of Sig and Salde, who Akuma addresses as "Mr. Shellbrick", obtaining the Stone of Moon. After giving Sig the Charm of Kumamori, Akuma challenges him to battle.

Akuma can also be seen in the Museum.

Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary

In Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary, his wish is that demons will never enter the town. Since he is a demon also, it means that there are demons that are not bad. In this game, he also notices Accord and Popoi's awkward relationship, and tries to expose it. However, much like Zoh Daimaoh, whom also noticed this, he failed to gain a confession or any other information.


  • His name is a Japanese pun as aku means "evil" and kuma means "bear", along with akuma meaning "demon".
  • His birthday is January 11th, which makes him a Capricorn (the Goat), the animal referring his demonic nature. It is also half of Popoi's birthday of February 22nd, perhaps to signify that Akuma and Popoi rank first and second among whatever species they are.
  • While he does not appear in Puyo Puyo 7, he shares a few similarities with Risukuma, a new character. Additionally, the doll that Feli cuddles with in her child form bears a strong resemblance to him. That doll was later featured as the target item for Feli's collection event in Puyo Puyo!! Quest.
  • His spells are derived from Sanskrit words such as Agni, fire and Devi, which means goddess.
