Power-up Fusion (パワーアップ合成) is the system to combine at most five cards at one time into a base card, giving it card experience/levels, plus bonuses and skill experience/levels.
Card experience (カード経験値) are required to raise a card's card level (カードレベル), which gives stats increments. The amount of experience earned is correlated with the fused cards' rarity, level and type. Material cards, in particular Material Puyo, gives much higher experiences (at least 5 times) than normal character cards, and is recommended as the primary feed. Outside of fusion, card experience are also given to all cards you bring when clearing Adventure Map levels.
- Unless otherwise specified as exceptions, all character cards give EXP according to their rarity and current level
- Special materials (like Puyo Ice, Grimoire) and Puslers give equal EXP as Lv. 1 normal cards in Power-up Fusion outside of special effects (see section below)
- Exclusive transformation materials for specific event characters give equal EXP as Material Puyo cards in Power-up Fusion, with certain specified exceptions
- In addition to the base value, the following bonuses can apply
- 1.5× EXP if base and fused cards are of the same color
- 2× EXP if base and fused cards are the exact same card (rarity and character) (same-color bonus not applied)
- 1.5× EXP if the fusion is a Big Success (大成功)

Plus Bonus (プラスボーナス) further increases the stats of a card beyond its normal growth curve, up to a limit of +300 (+100 on each stat). Attached Plus Bonuses can be transferred to the base card when fused.
Rolls from all kinds of Gacha have some varying chance to attach +1 Plus Bonus. Magic Stone, Gold Ticket and Premium Ticket Gachas, in particular, guarantees Plus Bonus for all rolls. Puslers and Books of Secrets (see section below) also comes with Plus Bonuses attached according to color.
|Plus Bonus||Per +1||MAX (+100)|
Skill experience (スキル経験値) are required to raise a card's skill level (スキルレベル), which reduces the number of Puyos needed to clear to charge up skills. Skill experience can only be gained by fusing with the same character or equivalent alts (exceptions exists, see individual Equivalent Character categories), or by using Purple Books of Secrets or Skill Puslers.

Skill Experience gain
With the exception of Skill Puslers (see section below), the amount of skill experience gained is related to the rarity of the cards used as fusion materials. Accumulated skill experience in the material cards can also be transferred to the base in addition to the normal amount.
|Rarity of fused card||★1||★2||★3||★4||★5||★6||★7|
|Skill EXP gained||5||10||50||100||200||400||800|
Battle Skill Experience/Levels
Battle skill experience (バトルスキル経験値) are required to raise a card's battle skill level (バトルスキルレベル), which reduces the number of Puyos needed to clear to charge up battle skills.
The mechanics of battle skill experience/levels in cards are essentially the same as with skill experience/levels. Refer to the section above.
Puslers/Books of Secrets
Puslers (プースラ) and Books of Secrets (秘伝書) are special materials that provide raw plus bonus or skill experience regardless of the base card. Unlike most cards, Books of Secrets give zero card experience.
