Incubus is a narcissistic demon, who thinks of himself as a ladies man yet always fails to seduce Arle. He likes to pepper his speech with a lot of English. However, most of this is love- and sexually- themed phrases.

Incubus is a demon who is almost never seen without a rose, be it in hand or in his mouth. He wears near exclusively purple: his cloak-like top is a deep purple, while his pants (which extend to his shoes like Lemres) are a lighter purple.
Incubus is an extremely narcissistic man: he spends a lot of his time bragging about how good he looks and how desirable he is. He is very sensitive to his makeup running, however: he won't let anybody who sees it live to tell the tale of his natural face.
While he hasn't shown up enough in Puyo to have many notable magical abilities, Incubus does have a fairly meaty list of spells from the Madou Monogatari series. His Puyo playing skills, unfortunately, leave much to be desired. Many of his spells involve roses, his motif.
In addition to the spells below, Incubus has two unnamed moves. One of them is from Genesis Madou Monogatari and is an electric attack where he shoots a ball of lightning out, and the other is from Game Gear Madou 3 and is one where he winks and, depending on her level, Arle may either become infatuated with him for some time or immediately reject him.

Incubus and Succubus are depicted as friendly rivals in Madou Monogatari (Saturn). As the counterparts of each other, both of them kidnap women and men from the nearby villages, as a competition to see who was the most beautiful out of the two. When Arle and Rulue confront Succubus, she tells them to give him a thrashing from her.
Puyo Puyo Tsu
In the Saturn and PlayStation versions of Puyo Puyo Tsu, he appears in the 3rd stage of the lesson mode and the 3rd stage of Rally mode. Amusingly, the game censors out some of his swearing with bleeps and animal noises.
Puyo Puyo Sun
Incubus is more known for his role in Puyo Puyo Sun, where he appears as the 2nd competitor for Arle in her story mode. It is here that he first tries to seduce Arle. He also exclaims "Oh shit!" when Arle notices his makeup dripping. He then tells Arle he must kill her for seeing his true face. Presumably, this must apply to anyone whom sees him without his makeup.
Incubus only makes a cameo appearance in Puyo Puyo~n's mission mode. In the Game Boy Color version, he is a playable character, though he re-uses his SUN voice clips.
Puyo Puyo Box
In addition to being one of the randomly generated opponents in the Scramble mode (either with SUN rules or Yo~n rules depending on his outfit), he also appears in the Quest mode. First, he serves as a roadblock until Harpy is defeated: at a later town, he gives Arle the staff that can break crystals as well as being challengeable there. Upon his defeat, he awards Arle with a ring.
Minna de Puyo Puyo
Incubus's latest appearance in the main series is in Minna de Puyo Puyo, where he tries to seduce Arle once again. This leads to Arle telling him her sign: "Octagon, as in stop." He later appears in the Trial Labyrinth as one of the opponents. He is fought in this game a total of three times.
Arle, Rulue, and Harpy travel to Incubus's mansion as a request from Succubus, and after the women in the nearby village go missing. Upon finding Incubus, they quickly find out that he was being possessed by a Yog, which gets destroyed shortly after. Before Harpy leaves the party, she tells Arle and Rulue that Incubus can join them. Once they leave the mansion, Incubus's skin starts to burn due to the bright sun. He tells them that he won't be able to travel with them, but gives them a rusted key that unlocks a set of chains in his basement, which hold Witch and Draco.
Puyo Puyo!! Quest
Incubus is available as a purple card, added on January 22 2014. As of now, he is available only from the PuyoPoint Exchange, though at one point he could also be obtained through the Mythical Rush guild event. He is in the same series as Jarne, Panotty and Chico, having similarly distributed skills and stats.
- Incubus is named after a species of demons of the same name. This may have influenced his narcissistic womanizing personality.
- The female versions of the said demons are called Succubi (singular: Succubus), and an equally fitting connection can be made between that character and the demon.
- Incubus is one of three characters to switch voice actors between the Saturn and N64 ports of Puyo Puyo Sun. The others are Rulue and Skeleton T.
- Incubus has an unused losing sprite in Puyo Puyo~n.
- Incubus has an error in one of his voice clips in Minna de Puyo Puyo. He uses one of his chaining voices when he loses rather then his losing voice clip. As his defeat quote is "Oh my god," some believe that this was a deliberate censoring by Sega of America.
- The losing voice clip is still in the game's data.
- In Puyo Puyo Sun and Puyo Puyo Tsu, just like Skeleton T, he will not rotate his Puyo.
