Rulue is Arle's rival and is a powerful martial artist. She's madly in love with Satan, which means she'll pretty much do anything he says. Most of those orders involve hassling Arle, which Rulue has no problem with given that she's jealous of Arle's magical powers. Her servant is a huge minotaur, despite having substantial amount of physical ability to defend herself.



Generally, Rulue is an adult with long blue hair that reaches to her waist and turquoise eyes. A recurring feature of Rulue is she wears jewelry, commonly a necklace, bracelets, and anklets, that go through design changes between games. Starting with Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary, she would also start wearing earrings, choker, and belt. The attire she wears varies between games, but in older games she commonly wore a type of strapless dress held together by a yellow sash around her waist that emphasizes white colors. Puyo Puyo 15th Anniversary and Puyo Puyo 7 would have a variant of the design that separates the top and bottom giving the impression of a long skirt and midriff, while from Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary onward she instead wears what appears to be a mini dress and a long vest/jacket strapped on top of it. In earlier games she lacked any footwear, but from Puyo Puyo~n onwards she would start wearing sandals.


True to her self-proclaimed title of Fighting Queen, she tries to have a sense of finesse yet assertion towards others, often trying to assert herself while trying to keep a calm dignified tone. However she also tends to be selfish with her goals, which often causes her to lose her temper when things don't go her way. For example she tends to get jealous if anyone tries to "take" Satan from her, and will start getting agitated if her appearance or title is ignored or mocked. This sometimes causes her to preform antagonistic acts, for example in Madou Monogatari III Rulue making Minotaur drive Arle into the forest because of her being upset that Satan wants Arle. Although normally capable herself, she prefers others like Minotaur to do her dirty work. She's also somewhat of a poser, not being afraid to show off her body towards others.


Notably, she stands out for lacking the ability to cast any magic in a generally magical world. Instead, Rulue has high proficiency in martial arts, performing palm strikes and kicks such as "Haganshou" (Rock Crushing Palm Strike) and "Fuujinkyaku" (Wind God Kick). She can also manipulate Ki energy, as demonstrated in the move "Power Wave". Her final attack tends to be her signature move, "Joou Ranbu" (known as Fighting Queen in the English version of PPT).

The only known time Rulue could cast magic was in Puyo Puyo CD, where she did the exact same spells as everybody else.

She sees her as a rival in love, as Arle is the primary target for Satan's advances. She is not afraid to hassle with her to assure that Satan is hers alone. However, she does not despise her. In the ending of Madou Monogatari III, she travels alongside her to magic school, so that she can learn how to cast magic.


She is deeply in love with him, ever since they met in Madou Monogatari: ARS. Rulue will do anything to win his affections, in spite of him having only eyes for Arle. While he does not return the sentiment, Satan at least does not dislike her.


As Rulue's bodyguard, he is determined to protect her, and he is also in love with her as well. Rulue does not share this sentiment, and on more than one occasion treats him poorly.


The two do not meet in 15th or Puyo 7, but hit it off in 20th and become good friends, likely because the two are fairly similar: physical martial artists with lots of wealth, a larger character who ostensibly loves them that they do not have feelings for, and poor magical abilities.

Draco Centauros

Rulue dislikes Draco Centauros who cuts in on her monologue in Puyo Puyo 20th Anniversary.


Madou Monogatari series

Rulue debuted as the primary antagonist of Madou Monogatari III. Rulue believes that Satan has chosen to marry Arle and thus sends Minotauros to eliminate the girl. Rulue serves as the final boss of the Game Gear version, while Minotauros is the final opponent in the MSX and PC98 games. Rulue is also one of the three playable characters in Madou Monogatari: ARS; her chapter is a prequel that explores her infatuation with Satan and ends with a battle against Count.

Puyo Puyo (1992)

Rulue is the second-to-last opponent. Blinded by love, she attempts to stop Arle from reaching Satan.

In the English version, she is known as Lulu. Silvana attempts to convince Lulu to come to her senses, but she is too infatuated with the Dark Prince to listen.

Puyo Puyo Tsu

Rulue again serves as the second-to-last opponent. She believes that Arle knows the secret of the tower and wonders how long that Arle can "play dumb" against her.

Puyo Puyo Sun

In Arle's story, Rulue casually greets Arle. When Arle mentions that she wants to reach Satan's castle, Rulue quickly stands up and orders Minotauros to get rid of her. Minotauros, not knowing his own strength, uses a giant leaf to blow Arle and Rulue away.

In Schezo's story, Rulue stops Schezo as he passes by and asks whether he has seen a body as lovely as hers. When Schezo says that he's not interested in her thin body, Rulue begins to wonder aloud about him, which causes him to nervously inch away.

Puyo Puyo~n

In this game, her hairstyle is ponytail, and clothes are maroon-based instead of white in other games. The design of her outfit for this game later mixed with her Mini Puyo Fever outfit in Puyo Puyo 7 and used as Flash Attack Rulue in Puyo Puyo!! Quest.

As the 14th opponent, Arle and her party encounter Rulue outside another circus tent. Rulue knows her intentions and denies entry to them, prompting a Puyo match. When Rulue is beaten, she reveals Carbuncle is in the circus tent, and as Arle and her party enter, Rulue wishes Arle to be fine.

Puyo Puyo Box

In addition to appearing in the story mode, she also appears as a Scramble opponent playing both Puyo Puyo Tsu and Puyo Puyo~n rules.

Minna de Puyo Puyo

Rulue appears three times; once in Gachinko Dungeon, one in Dark Prince's Castle, and a final time in Trial Labyrinth. She believes that Arle is intentionally trying to get close to Satan, despite the fact that Arle does not learn of his plot until the end of the game.

During her battles (excluding her first one), her Puyo field is usually filled with 3 layers of Point Puyo and Hard Puyo, making the fight a bit more challenging. However, the presence of these Nuisance Puyo can also be an advantage to the player; performing even just 2 chains on top of the Point Puyo will usually defeat Rulue instantly.

Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary

She is one of the six comets that end up in Primp in this game.

Puyo Puyo 7

Rulue appears in the Easter Island stage in Act 3. While there, Ringo meets her, who asks if she's here for training and notices and compliments about her eyes. She leaves after a Puyo match with her.

When playing as Amitie, Rulue offers her a training, and assuming she doesn't know who she is, and challenges her to a Puyo battle.

When playing as Suketoudara, he refuses her training, causing her to threaten him to knock him into a Moai statue. She is irritated when Suketoudara threatens back to report to Satan, and challenges him to a Puyo match.

Rulue later reappears before the final battle with Ecolo.

Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary

She appears as one of the 24 playable characters.

Puyo Puyo Tetris

Rulue, alongside Raffina and Feli, is affected by the merging of the two worlds, and appears alongside the other two, in Chapter 2. After being beaten back by Arle in a Swap match, she retreats to Primp Town alongside the other two 'corrupted' ladies. She is later found in Chapter 4, by Arle and Schezo, and is partially returned to her senses by Schezo and Arle teasing her over her love of Satan (Dark Prince in English versions). Rulue doesn't take well to the method used however, and battles Arle. Her resulting loss, fully returns her to normal. She proceeds to give a long winded speech about what she adores about Satan, to Schezo (who is told to do so by Arle), up until the point that he interrupts her, and flees the scene to train.

Nazo Puyo and other spinoffs

Rulue is the protagonist of one of Super Nazo Puyo: Rulue's Roux's scenarios, and is the main character of Super Nazo Puyo 2 and Rulue's Spring Break.


  • Rulue is replaced by Scratch in Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and Meta Knight in Kirby's Avalanche.
  • Rulue is the only character from the first Puyo Puyo that lacks a vocal phrase. This may be related to the fact that she is not battled in the PC-98 version of Madou Monogatari 123.
  • Rulue is one of three characters to switch voice actors between the Saturn and N64 versions of Sun. The others are Skeleton-T and Incubus.
  • According to the manual in Puyo Puyo DA!, her favorite food is beef, which bothers Minotauros.
    • This fact is later referenced again in Puyo Puyo!! Quest in an official Rulue-themed spoof of the main menu for April Fools 2017, where the Single-player Quest menu button is changed to read "Eat Beef and Train" (ぎゅうにくをたべてとっくん).
  • Rulue is the only character besides Schezo or Klug to have a unique henshin animation in Puyo Puyo 7; her second mini/chibi animation is different from it's counterpart in normal and deka. Rulue is also the only one of two characters whom didn't have an outfit change for the game, the other being Lemres. Her chibi outfit, was also recycled from Rulue's Spring Break.
  • Raffina in Puyo Puyo Fever draws many parallels to Rulue, most prominently in both being rivals to the main character and excelling in physical techniques rather than magical abilities.
    • The two become friends in later media including 20th Anniversary and select Drama CD scenarios.
  • Alternate Voice notes:
    • In Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary, she sounds drowsy.
    • In Puyo Puyo Tetris (both Japanese and English versions), the nuances on her lines become weaker and she sounds quiet.
    • In Puyo Puyo Chronicle, she has overall soft voice.
    • In Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, her voice becomes significantly deeper that almost sounds like male. She shares this motif with Ally.
      • In the English version, most of her alternate voice clips are reused from the original Puyo Puyo Tetris, and her new voice clips retain the same tone.
  • The intro of Madou Monogatari: ARS associates each of its three main characters with a type of flower. Rulue's flower is the rose. This association could later be seen in places such as her cutscene in Puyo Puyo Tsu Ketteiban, and Puyo Puyo!! Quest's Gorgeous Rulue card.
