- Based on Puyo Puyo Fever. Utilizing unique dropsets and chain strengths, the player is tasked is trying to beat the opponent. Offsetting behaves differently, with Nuisance Puyo only dropping if the opponent fails to create a chain.

- Tee, O, Ess, Zed, Ai, Jay & Elle, Ex, and Nasu Grave, despite being playable in previous SEGA-era games, are not available as icons. While most Compile-era characters that appear in Puyo Puyo!!

- Mandrake, Archan, Banshee Trio, Honey Bee, and Kodomo Dragon are all part of the Nostalgic Puyo Series in Quest. Additionally, Archan, Honey Bee, and Kodomo Dragon all debuted in Bayoeen Wars: Daimadou Senryaku Monogatari and are the only Puyo Puyo characters that originate from that game.
- Skeleton T is the only character from the 1992 Puyo Puyo's Beginner course to be represented as an icon.

- This game contains the first confirmed instances of English voice actors reprising their roles from a previous Puyo Puyo game.
- Demon Servant is renamed "Demiserf" in the English version, continuing a series localization trend of downplaying elements that can be seen as religious in nature.
