Maguro Sasaki is a student at the school in Puyo Puyo 7. He lives in the Suzuran Shopping District with Ringo, as the eldest son of a fishmonger. He is Ringo's childhood friend, and frequently spends time with her in the physics clubroom, though he does not appear to be interested in conducting experiments himself. He is reportedly to be skilled at studying, cooking, and games. He constantly carries a Puyo-themed kendama, a toy similar to a yo-yo or ball-in-cup, as he is an avid gamer; the tricks he performs with this toy comprise his attack animations. He has a unique quirk of adding ✮ at the end of his sentences.

Biography

Appearance

Maguro is a teen who's most distinctive feature is his purple hair that covers his eyes. His eyes are never shown, which in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary is suggested to be a fail-safe measure so he doesn't accidentally infatuate everyone, due to apparently being very beautiful. He also carries around a Puyo-themed kendama.

His normal attire is a white shirt with a purple tie, grey jeans, a watch on his left wrist, and violet shoes. In Puyo Puyo 7 he instead wears a dark grey jacket, and curiously has much sharper teeth then normal. In Puyo Puyo Tetris he wears a white sweater vest with a blue diamond pattern over his normal attire.

Personality

He's rather strange and sarcastic, often talking in a smooth talking manner and generally being level headed. Though normally calm, he will start panicking if things go wrong. He is something of a gamer, disclosing his concerns about tabletop gaming to Risukuma in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary. A recurring quirk with his speech is that he tends to end his sentences with a star.

Abilities

He is skilled with using his kendama as an improvised weapon. His spells reference this gimmick, and include Swing In/ふりけん [Furiken], Lightning Drop/稲妻落とし [Inazuma Otoshi], Moon Circle/円月殺法 [Engetsu Sappou], Earth Turn/地球回し [Chikyū Mawashi], Backhand Slip Grip Special/太陽極意 [Taiyō Gokui], Butterfly Dance/胡蝶の舞 [Kochō-no Mai], and Sidewinder, all of which are kendama tricks. Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary reveals that his eyes are apparently so beautiful they can make anyone regardless of gender or species fall in love with him, dubbed by Ringo as the "Beauty Beam".

Relationships

Ringo

Ringo is Maguro's clubmate and childhood friend, and the two are quite close to each other.

Risukuma

Another friend and fellow clubmate at school. Risukuma is senior to Maguro.

History

Puyo Puyo 7

Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary

Maguro is one of the 24 playable characters of Puyo Puyo! 20th Anniversary. He is with Risukuma and Ringo in the physics clubroom when Risukuma's experiment explodes, transferring and dispersing the three of them to Primp Town. He is unlocked after Ringo's route, which is the first in the game.

Maguro's Story

Maguro's story in Puyo Puyo! 20th Anniversary. Ringo accompanies throughout his route and inadvertently gets him into puyo battles with those they meet. His opponents are:

Ringo

Ringo is bored and feels like seeing Maguro's face. Maguro refuses, but Ringo demand through a puyo battle. Even after he wins however, he relents to her demands.

Amitie

Maguro's second opponent is Amitie, who arrives in a blur of excitement and misconception about what Ringo and Maguro were up to. After a puyo battle and some explanation, Amitie decides she also wants to tag along and test Maguro's "Beauty Beam" on others.

Lidelle

Amitie approaches Lidelle and gets her to look towards Maguro, who relents into showing his face to Rider. Rider falls in love, and requests a puyo battle. Afterwards, she appears to be in a dizzy state. Maguro, the ever unwilling participant, asks if that's enough, but Amitie and Ringo want to find more test subjects.

Klug

Amitie and Ringo come across Klug and decide to test Maguro's "Beauty Beam". Klug falls in love and reacts frantically, asking Maguro to stay afar. After a puyo battle, Klug appears to be in a dizzy state. Ringo concludes that the beam works on boys as well. Amitie and Ringo then decide to test it on someone unusual.

Suketoudara

Amitie and Ringo bring Maguro to the beach, where they find Suketoudara. Suketoudara reacts to Maguro's "Beauty Beam" by dancing a courtship dance, much to Maguro's distress. They puyo battle, afterwards leaving Suketoudara in a dizzy state. Maguro asks if they're done now, and Amitie assents, her curiosity fulfilled, and leaves.

Risukuma

Maguro's sixth opponent is Risukuma, who asks what Maguro and Ringo are up to. Ringo explains that they were testing the effect of his beautiful face. Risukuma wants to see it as well, but Maguro refuses, saying that he is done for the day. Risukuma proposes they do an "unveiling" exchange: Maguro shows Risukuma his face for Risukuma showing Maguro his naked body. Maguro rejects this, leading to a puyo battle.

Ringo

Having lost his chance to see Maguro's face, Risukuma asks why Ringo is unaffected by Maguro's "Beauty Beam". Ringo explains that since they've been together so long, it doesn't seem all that surprising to her. Ringo asks if Maguro is disappointed, to which responds "especially". For no real reason, Ringo suggests a puyo battle. Afterwards, Risukuma implies that he can see love in their puyo battle, and decides to stealthily leave.

Ecolo

Maguro's eighth and final opponent is Ecolo, who appears out of nowhere, declaring that Maguro and Ringo's conversation and battle were going into an unacceptable territory. Ecolo further yells that Maguro's existence as a super beautiful boy doesn't make sense, and angrily challenges him to a puyo battle. After losing to Maguro, Ecolo insults him and says they hate him before leaving.

Afterwards, with just the two of them again, Maguro mentions that he thinks he'll make Roll Cabbage for dinner. Ringo is excited, since Maguro is also skilled at cooking.

Other Characters' Stories

Ringo's Story

Maguro features as Ringo's fifth opponent. The two of them share a friendly puyo battle in celebration of being reunited.

Risukuma's Story

Puyo Puyo Tetris

Maguro appears as one of the playable characters of Puyo Puyo Tetris.

Trivia

  • Maguro has an asymmetrical design in Mega/Deka form. However, since neither of his other two forms have asymmetry, no additional art and animations were coded to reflect this, not even in the Wii and PSP versions.
  • His name means tuna, which makes some sense considering he is the son of a fishmonger. His Mini/Chibi form also reflects upon this somewhat.
  • Despite being skilled with a kendama, Maguro's spell animations are not accurate depictions of the tricks he uses.
  • Alternate voice notes:
    • In Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary, his voice becomes lower-pitched. This is generally the same for subsequent games, but in Puyo Puyo Tetris, he speaking the quotes in an ominous way (like Ringo in same game), and in Puyo Puyo Chronicle, it more closer to his normal voice than Puyo Puyo!!.
    • Around late-February 2018 to mid-March 2018, the Steam port of Puyo Puyo Tetris had an audio glitch that Maguro's Japanese alternate voices are used by Amitie instead. This is fixed in the updated version of mid-March 2018.
