|Puyo Puyo!! Quest information|
Akuma is a giant blue bear doll, whose head is a mask detached from his body. He usually ends his sentences with ma, the second half of kuma. 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.
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.
