|Puyo Puyo!! Quest information|
Rafisol is a dark entity born from Ally's pendant, the Pendant of Ruuwa. She serves as the main antagonist of Puyo Puyo Chronicle. She shares Ally's likeness, but her palette is inverted from her counterpart. As Ally's pendant inverts love, Rafisol does not understand love. She is a being of pure dark magic that does not understand her existence.
Rafisol is very similar to Ally, but with shuffled and inverted colors and sharper hair. The trim on her dress is also different, as opposed to Ally's soft scallop trim, Rafisol has sharper edges.
Rafisol's personality develops throughout the game. At first she's cold and only wishes to "take everything." She doesn't respond to the characters, except for two instances, the first is when Ally wonders if Rafisol has love, in which Rafisol denies it, the second is when they are about to battle her. After the battle, Rafisol shows desperation, she does this by attempting to take all of Ally's power, she doesn't want to disappear, she wants to continue to exist. Whilst initially succeeding, Arle and friends end up saving Ally and Rafisol can't take this newfound love power. She still tries to anyway, which makes Ally realise that Rafisol does want to love. After she's returned to the pendant, it's shown that Rafisol is happy to be residing in the pendant and being with Ally and that Ally may have taught Rafisol about love.
Later, when talking with Carbuncle, she realises she can use her powers to help others, though how she helps isn't actually good, as she suggests taking over another world just so Carbuncle can have curry. She eventually has a puyo match with Carbuncle. Despite not knowing why Carbuncle wanted to play puyo with her, she realised that there doesn't have to be a reason for absolutely everything and she doesn't have a reason to decline Carbuncle's challenge.
Rafisol has difficulties expressing emotions, mostly due to the fact she's a being of pure darkness, Rafisol actually tries to have a puyo battle that was fun and made her smile. After the match, Rafisol claims it didn't work and quickly leaves. Ally wonders that maybe she didn't smile, but in her heart she had fun, and she smiled, in her heart. Rafisol had fun and enjoyed the battle, but she simply didn't know how to express herself, so she hid it and ran off.
Rafisol is also hinted to self-loathe and does not like her existence, questioning why she was born and why she's here, and even asks everyone why they are still with her in the postgame, and why they would want to be with a "dark existence". She hates being a dark existence and doesn't think she deserves any form of company or happiness, she hides her happiness because she doesn't think she deserves it, however she doesn't leave the party because she wants their company and wants to feel the happiness. She could leave, but she doesn't want to go to being left to herself and her loathing, she wants to experience the happiness and love that everyone else has, and hopefully be able to fully affirm herself that despite being an dark existence, she can just live a nice, happy life with everyone else without any problems.
Powers and Abilities
In Puyo battles, the theme of her spells seems to be pragmaticism. She uses Hide, Snatch, Take Over, Domination, and Disorder to best her foes. She is particularly capable at playing Puyo, doing so on par with other final bosses such as Satan, Carbuncle, and Ecolo: even without Core AI, if Quick Drop is an option in the current game mode, she will always use it.
Rafisol makes her first appearance in the Tower of Color. Throughout the Tower of Color, Ally is shown to be in some sort of pain, but Ally brushes it off and tells Arle that she's fine, this is hinted to be Rafisol beginning to break free of the pendant. Near the top, Rafisol speaks to the party twice, the first time she questions her existence, the second time she warns that soon she will "End Everything" once Arle's party reaches the summit of the tower, using all the magic gathered in the tower. She does not show herself, due to still being in the pendant, leaving the party confused as to where the voice is coming from. Once Arle and her party reaches the top of the Tower of Color, Ally stops and gasps in pain, making the entire party notice and wonder what's hurting her, Ally finally admits to being in pain and says it's from her pendant. A flash of white emits from the pendant and Rafisol breaks free from Ally's pendant. Amitie is the first to notice Rafisol and points her out to everyone else. After exposition from Ecolo, Arle and her party challenges Rafisol to a puyo battle, in which she loses. After the battle, Rafisol resists and begins to take control of Ally, attempting to drain all of Ally's power. However, with the help of Arle and the party, Ally breaks free of Rafisol's control and returns Rafisol to Ally's pendant. In the post-credits scene, we see Rafisol inside Ally's pendant, and it's implied Ally has managed to teach Rafisol about love.
Rafisol is seen again in her post-game Master Quest, where she is tasked to have a Puyo battle overflowing with love while smiling. She claims to be able to do it on her own, and attempts to refuse Ally's offers to battle with her as Rafisol feels that they have no connection with one another. Ally eventually persuades Rafisol to battle with her, and her Master Quest is completed. This initially confuses the others as she did not smile during the battle, but after she leaves, Ally concludes that Rafisol must have smiled in her heart even if she did not physically smile.

- Alternate voice notes:
- Rafisol is only (aside alternate costumes from Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary except Strange Klug) character from main Puyo series in Puyo Puyo!! Quest that do not have any single color card.
- Rafisol lacked any art in the traditional Puyo Puyo style until the release of Volume 2 of the Puyo Puyo LINE stickers in September 2017, nearly a year after the release of Puyo Puyo Chronicle.
- She only received full body art in that style upon her inclusion in Puyo Puyo!! Quest
- Both of the artwork used for her in Puyo Puyo Champions is from Quest. As a result, she is the only character in the game to lack a third piece of artwork.

Rafisol uses Zoh Daimaoh's dropset. However, her Nuisance rate is similar to Schezo, Klug, Ms. Accord and Ecolo's, unlike Zoh Daimaoh, whose Nuisance rate is shared with Onion Pixie, Hohow Bird, Feli and Risukuma.
Note: A part of her voice tends to make a space between syllables (expressed by "..." etc. in this transcription).
