Trivia

  • This is the first game to not have Klug, Feli, Lemres, and Ecolo as playable characters since their respective debuts.
  • This is the first game to have Puyo Puyo!! Quest characters as playables in a primary game.
  • Assets from Puyo Puyo!! Quest, such as card art and (in the Japanese version) voice clips are re-used in this game, although the former has edits for much of the mainstay cast, and the latter does have some new voice clips mostly for the Quest characters.
  • 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!! Quest are also available as icons in this game, Mandrake, Archan, Banshee Trio, Cait Sith, Honey Bee, Kodomo Dragon, and Mummy, in addition to Nasu Grave, are not.
    • 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.
    • With the exception of the S.S. Tetra crew, all SEGA-created characters are avaliable as icons
  • 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.
