|Puyo Puyo!! Quest information|
Rei is the twin brother of Yu, who usually backs up what she says. He was missing in Puyo Puyo Fever, but appears in its sequel, Puyo Puyo Fever 2. Rei is the opposite of Yu; while his sister is excited and playful, he has more of a reserved, gloomy personality.
Like Yu, he has a wispy tail and wears a white hooded ghost sheet—almost identical to Yu's garb, the subtle difference being his straight-cut ribbon. Appearance-wise, what mainly sets Rei apart from Yu is his blue hair, which covers his eyes.
In sharp contrast to his sister, Rei is quiet and terse. He mainly sits in the background, letting Yu be the driving force of their antics. He mostly utilizes signboards in Fever 2 to communicate to the player and to other characters, seldom speaking. According to game documentation, however, Rei was happier when he was still alive.
She is his only sister. They act as a brother-sister team on their ventures. He hopes the two of them stay together forever.

Yu & Rei's Story
Yu and Rei, as a team, participate in the Puyo tournament for the chance of winning a wish-granting medal. For the majority of the tournament, he does not speak. When he does, he's mostly chiming in with Yu's statements. His wish is to exchange bodies with Yu, but gets cancelled out by his sister's wish, which was for the same thing.
- Rei's name is a play on the Japanese word for "ghost"; combined with Yu's name, it makes yūrei (幽霊).
- He and Yu share the same birthday, June 9th, and the same blood type, AB.
