Marle is a character introduced in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. At first, she appears to be responsible for mixing the Puyo Puyo and Tetris dimensions. After Chapter 4, Marle becomes an ally of the group and reveals that she is a partial incarnation of the Will of the Worlds and a watcher of the worlds who ensures that all battles are fun.



During the protagonists' early encounters with her, Marle appears to be a young girl with short cut light yellow-green hair and half-lidded gold eyes. The upper tips of her hair are styled in a fashion similar to lightning bolts, and the back of her hair frays outward to points on both sides. Atop of her head is a black cloud with a cyan lightning bolt-like cowlick protruding out of it. Her bangs are cut irregularly and their shape resembles an "M", with the middle bang being round and the left and right ones being straight cut. Behind her are pieces of disjointed hair in rectangular pieces, resembling sunrays. She wears a pair of black gloves, an outfit primarily hued with black, red, and purple decorated with circle motifs, black stockings, and white-tipped shoes.

Upon being freed from Squares' control, her dress changes to a cyan color accented with orange and white. Her stockings, gloves, and cloud are now white, while her shoes are black. She has indigo-blue eyes, her cowlick turns blonde and curled, the lightning bolt-like horns that adorned the top of her head also become curls, and the disjointed parts of her hair reconnect into a chain of circles. Her curls seem to change along with her emotions, unfurling slightly when she's surprised, and taking on a lightning bolt shape when she is angry.

Outside of Adventure Mode, Marle's true form is the default when selecting her, while her mind-controlled form can be selected by pressing the button which would switch to her alternate voice on the character selection screen. Similar to how "extra" characters such as Red Amitie and Possessed Klug are selected in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary.


At first, Marle's personality appears to be playful, mischievous, and thrill-seeking, as she's seen explaining to Ringo her desire for everyone to have many battles so they can all have fun. She seems to speak politely but playfully, dragging out her vowels and often ending her sentences with music notes. She begins to show signs of distress throughout the game and becomes increasingly conflicted once the others challenge her thinking of "fun", with Arle assessing that she isn't doing anything of her own volition.

In reality, Marle is a polite, friendly, and thoughtful person. She seems to take her responsibility as a watcher of the worlds rather seriously, as she mentions that she and Squares refrained from directly interfering during the first merging of the worlds in Puyo Puyo Tetris. However, she seems inexperienced with her role and kept secrets from Squares during the second merging, resulting in the events in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. She is extremely grateful for the heroes' efforts in freeing her from Squares's control and making him realize the error of his ways, and Ally's assistance as well.


As a partial incarnation of the Will of the Worlds, Marle is able to observe and travel to different puzzle worlds as she pleases. She is also powerful enough to create another cosmological being, Squares, to become her companion.

In battle, Marle's spells include Annulus, Circular Dance, Pastel Orb, Shiny Bubble, and Heavenly Sphere, all of which are themed after circles. While under the control of Squares, her spells have a square-like element to their appearances. For instance, Heavenly Sphere depicts a cube instead of a sphere while she is under his control.


Squares is Marle's creation, fellow watcher of the worlds, and younger brother. Ally notices that she cares for her brother very deeply in spite of what he had done to her.

but she has a gentle heart."


  • Her name is a corruption of the Japanese word for "circle", with the middle vowel drawn out.
    • While not kept in the English localization, the stylization of her name is likely a nod to her speech in Japanese text featuring drawn out words.
    • Her motifs represent the circular shape of Puyo to contrast with Squares' motifs, which represent the rectangular shape of Tetriminos.
  • Marle is the first female antagonist that is not a doppelganger of a pre-existing character.
  • Her title "Dimensional Parasite" during the first part of Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is 時空のバグ (jikuu no bagu, lit. space-time bug) in Japanese, which refers to a computer bug or a glitch rather than an actual parasitic insect.
  • Marle is the only character in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 to have an alternate costume. Unlike the ones in 20th, Marle's alternate is considered an alternate voice.
  • While Marle is locked, her silhouette is that of her pre-Chapter 5 self. Once unlocked, her post-Chapter 5 self replaces that slot; her CSS icon does not change when her alternate voice is selected.
  • Marle's Dropset cannot be used within Fever, since her dropset hasn't appeared in a game that has that mode yet. The same situation happens with Squares, Sonic, Legamünt and Rozatte.
  • Marle and Sonic are the only characters that were introduced within a Puyo Puyo Tetris game that default to Puyo Puyo instead of Tetris on the character Select screen.
  • Marle has the biggest Fusion Dropset out of any character, consisting of a total of 18 Puyos.
    • Marle and Carbuncle also are the only characters whose Fusion Dropset have 2 Big Puyos in it. They also happen to have the O Tetrimino as their SP piece, which functions like a Big Yellow Puyo in its Puyo form, essentially granting them 3 Big Puyos in their Dropset.
