Archan is a cute, elfish archer that makes rare appearances in the Puyo Puyo series. She's a trickster who loves to catch people in traps of her design, like pits. In Pocket Puyo~n, she, like Arle Nadja herself, refers to herself with the masculine pronoun "boku", implying she is a tomboy.


Madou Monogatari series

Archan debuted in Daimadou Senryaku Monogatari as one of the minions that Arle and her opponents can summon into battle.

She makes another appearance in Madou Monogatari: Final Exam as a random encounter.

The Saturn Madou Monogatari features several Archan variants.

Puyo Puyo~n

Archan is the second opponent in the console Puyo Puyo~n's story mode and is an optional opponent in Pocket Puyo Puyo~n. She pranks Arle by tricking her into falling into traps laid by none other than Archan herself, however in Pocket Yo~n she ends up falling into a trap herself.

Puyo Puyo Box

In addition to the standard Archan, Box contains a more powerful version named Wood Hunter. The normal Archan is both a random encounter in the second dungeon, and a villager in the second town. She appears as a Yon rule opponent in Scramble mode: she is often among the easiest opponents to defeat.


  • Her name is a portmanteau of 'archer' or 'archery' and the Japanese honorific '-chan'.
