Ocean Prince in his fish form is as expect depicted as a pink fish. The only article of clothing he wears is a medallion with a star imprinted on it held by a collar/necklace, and a three point crown that has a swirl imprint on it. Aside from that he's pink with a white stomach, yellow fins, purple gills and tail fin, a pointed mouth, and his eyes have a distinct "star" pattern for his pupils.
He's one of the few characters that doesn't go through design changes, only having minor proportion changes with his fins.
He's a royal character who true to his nature often speaks in an archaic fashion and thinks of himself as hierarchy. Though ironically he's a slacker and a spoiled brat, hating to be in his castle and preforming prince duties, which is why he transformed himself into a fish to escape. This extends to how he responds to others, trying to force everyone he meets into submitting to his whims and working for him, even resorting to bribing on occasion. However being young he's rather ignorant of the world around him, which can cause him to get into hot water.
The Ocean Prince, like most characters in the Puyo Puyo series, is very skilled with magic. Notably, he transforms himself into a fish to escape his princely duties. His spells are based on water and marine life, such as his Dolphin Smash. This spell is often the first spell he uses when making a chain, and is his most consistent spell in all his playable appearances, with the rest of his spells changing from game to game. In his debut in Puyo Puyo Fever, his spells were Dolphin Smash, Crust Guard, Big Wave, Barracuda Spin, and Trident Billow. In some of his more recent playable appearances, his spells are Dolphin Smash, Shark's Bite, Whale Charge, Trident Billow, and Prince's Dignity. Other games have had him use Whale Whale, Dugong Trap, Squid Blow, Octopus Spin, and Crown of Thorns.
The Ocean Prince enjoys playing pranks on Otomo, often escaping the castle to avoid his royal duties. Despite this, Otomo does not hold any ill will towards the Ocean Prince, in fact being quite fond of him.
In Puyo Puyo Fever 2, during the WakuWaku course, Sig becomes the Ocean Prince's servant, after he is promised a daily nap and walk, and three meals a day. This relationship is not touched upon until the HaraHara course, where the Ocean Prince, now in a human form, approaches Sig and requests that they find the Star Lantern, so that the prince may turn back into a fish. He accompanies Sig through the rest of the course, and is genuinely grateful towards Sig once his fish form is restored.
Puyo Puyo Fever
He is the third opponent of the Hara Hara Course. Raffina encounters him on the way to the cane, and her refusal to listen to his demands initiates the battle.
Puyo Puyo Fever 2
He plays a major role in the Raffina WakuWaku and Sig HaraHara courses. In the former, Raffina is tasked by his butler Otomo to track him down so he can return to the castle: for information on his role in Sig's HaraHara, see Prince Salde. Despite this, he is only actually fought once, in Sig's WakuWaku course.
