Puyo Puyo Gaiden: Puyo Wars (ぷよぷよ外伝 ぷよウォーズ) is a turn-based strategy game released for the Game Boy Color. Despite its name, the only core Puyo Puyo characters present in the game are Arle Nadja and Carbuncle in a flashback scene and the Puyos themselves.

Otherwise, the game mostly features an original cast, including the new protagonists Daichi, Sho, and Marin, though the antagonist Angol would later make his first chronological appearance in Arle no Bouken: Mahou no Jewel. The game’s focus is on placing Puyos into a large variety of combat vehicles and having them fight.

—Official synopsis


  • The game is set in the distant future of Gaiearth (ガイアース), Ragnus the Brave's homeworld from True Madou Monogatari and Madou Monogatari (Saturn). The goddess Eldora, who first appears in this game, is stated in True Madou Monogatari Side Story - The Golden Hero to have granted Ragnus his armor and Reactor Blade.
  • Notably, the game's plot proposes an elaborate backstory for Puyos and how they reached the world of Madou Monogatari, though there are many discrepancies between it and their origin presented in the SEGA era of the franchise. Said discrepancies are justified with the implication that the game takes place in an alternate universe.
  • A cut chapter of Arle no Bouken: Mahou no Jewel, The Day The Puyo Disappeared, was intended to serve as a side story of the game.
