|Puyo Puyo!! Quest information|
Sig is a spacey boy, first introduced in Puyo Puyo Fever 2. Although he is sometimes shown smiling, he lacks emotions through his text, and acts passively toward things, save for his great fascination with insects. His lack of emotion in his speech lead to assumptions that he has some problems emoting. According to Puyo Puyo Fever 2, he derives from the neutral non-evil parts of a demon, and is ignorant of his origins. His left eye is red and his left hand is a large red claw, denoting his demonic heritage.

His most distinct features are his heterochromia and red left arm, which come from his demonic origins. His eyes are blue and red, his left eye being red. Sig has sky blue hair, with hair antennae that seem to be prehensile.
In Puyo Puyo Fever 2, he wore a white and blue high-collared jacket with what seems to be an orange brace, and dark blue pants and blue shoes. Light blue ankle socks peek from his shoes. He also carries a large bag on his waist, with a wing clipped on it.
In Puyo Puyo 7, his outfit is a lighter-colored version of the boys' Suzuran school uniform. He keeps his waist bag.
In Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary, he wore a dark blue and white-sleeved t-shirt with a beetle on the front. His pants are a lighter shade of blue, with a white stripe around his knees. His shoes are now white and blue with green soles.
Sig is often described as a boy that goes along life at his own pace. He doesn't show a lot of emotion, rarely raising his voice and treating everything in a nonchalant manner, and speaks in a somewhat monotone voice. He's also rather absent minded, often failing to catch sarcasm or treating metaphors literally. This may stem from how Sig is the "neutral" side of a demon, and due to such his morals or emotions may differ from other people, effectively being a "neutral" slate.
One of the thing that motivates him is his love for bugs. Starting with Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary he would often be accompanied by bugs and his motivations would often involve bugs. In particular he's often accompanied by a small ladybug that he loves dearly, to the point he shows fear if it's attacked, such as when Witch wanted to use it as a potion ingredient in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary. In Puyo Puyo Tetris, after Schezo corners him, Sig reveals that he keeps a family of bugs in his left arm. Because Sig believes that Schezo is going to take his hand, he requests some time to say goodbye to the bugs; this is one of the few times Sig has shown stronger emotion.
His magic derives from Blue Magic, and as such, all his spells are based on blue colors and blue-colored objects. His attacks include Cyan, Paraiba, Robin's Egg, Lapis lazuli, Celestial and Hydrangea, although in the English translation of Puyo Puyo Tetris, Hydrangea is replaced by Cobalt. He also has Cerulean and Lapis Lazuli in Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary.
(The events of Chapter 9 in Puyo Puyo Tetris all took place within a dream, but it's implied that the characters would act similarly, were the events ever to truly occur.)
Ms. Accord is Sig's teacher at Primp Magic Academy, her other students being Amitie, Raffina, Klug, and Lidelle. She has implied that she knows about the reason Sig's red arm and eye are the way they are, but has never talked about it, always avoiding the question.
Sig gets along well with Amitie, and is often seen interacting with her more than other characters. Amitie tends to be supportive of Sig, as shown in the light novel Sig's Secret, where she worries for his well-being after he unexpectedly quits the cafe preparation. In Puyo Puyo Tetris, he helps her initiate a battle with Raffina when she's out of breath. After her victory he insists she rest after thinking she was about to faint, and she thanks him for watching her after finally giving in. When Amitie brings up a memory of Sig to battle in chapter 6, she mentions that she's always wanted to tell him something, but the memory-Sig interrupts her, saying that she should tell the real Sig (in the Japanese version of this scene, she states that her hat reacts strangely whenever she's around him). In Chapter 9, Sig trusts Amitie enough to ask her to protect him from Schezo, who is looking to take his left hand.
Sig and Klug are classmates, as well as friends. Both Klug and Sig share a connection to the Record of Sealing described in Puyo Puyo Fever 2, where the spirit within the Record of Sealing possesses Klug after being unsealed by him, and makes it clear it recognized Sig as its other half. When Klug crossed paths with Schezo in Chapter 9 of Puyo Puyo Tetris, he withheld information about Sig's whereabouts, showing concern for him and asking if Schezo was bothering him.
Sig and Raffina are classmates, and most interactions include Sig getting her name wrong, to Raffina's dismay (this appears to only be evident in the Japanese games). Raffina believes Sig's arm became red due to strength training, and was surprised to learn otherwise. In Puyo Puyo Tetris, when Raffina was acting mysteriously due to the influence of the two worlds fusing, she had mentioned an 'unusual energy' dwelling inside Sig, curious as to why he had not submitted to the chaos. He simply stated that people don't like chaos.
Mysteriously enough, Lidelle seems to always notice Sig's spirit floating by him, which pops up on occasion. When addressing it, Sig appears to have no idea what she's talking about, promptly leading to a Puyo battle between the two, for one reason or another. During Chapter 9 of Puyo Puyo Tetris, Lidelle hesitated to tell Schezo Sig's whereabouts when asked, worrying for his safety.
Sig seems to dislikes Lemres, usually finding him suspicious as he immediately attempts to leave several times after first meeting him, and leaves him to fend for himself after winning the Puyo battle against him. In Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary, Sig was annoyed with him because he scared bugs away from his lures. Despite this, Lemres has shown concern for his safety, as well as implying he also knows something about his red eye and arm while keeping the information secret.
Similarly to Lemres, Sig wants nothing to do with Schezo, with Chapter 9 of Puyo Puyo Tetris involving him running away from him constantly, as Schezo claims to want his power. Lemres warns Schezo that the two should not cross paths, even in a dream.
Sig is implied to be the neutral half of the demon that was sealed within the Record of Sealing, with the soul possessing Klug being the 'evil' half that was sealed away. When Sig confronted Strange Klug in Puyo Puyo Fever 2, Strange Klug asserted that Sig's body was definitely that of his descendant. However, the Charm of Kumamori given to Sig by Akuma prevented Sig's soul from resonating with Strange Klug's. In Chapter 9 of Puyo Puyo Tetris', the spirit inside the Record of Sealing began to chatter about right after Sig had ran past Klug, further strengthening the implied connection between the two.
Puyo Puyo Fever 2
Klug is his first opponent, whom brags to Sig, claiming that his brains will net him a victory.
Lidelle is his second opponent, who requests that Sig goes easy on her.
As a final test, Ms. Accord is the third, and final opponent. After Sig defeats her, she announces that everyone take a break, steadily improving their Puyo popping skills.
After the RunRun Course, Sig goes to to deliver the moonsunflower's observation record to Amitie, since it was her turn to fill out. Having sent her on an errand, Ms. Accord also requested he give a note to Amitie, then he went on his way. He fought the following:
Lidelle noticed Sig walking about, and recognized him from her class. She noticed his antennae twitching, which she thought was odd. Sig then challenged her to a Puyo match.
Sig went back to the forest, feeling peckish. He then smelled soup, which happened to be the smell Gogotte's Special soup. Gogotte told Sig he could have it if he won in a Puyo match, immediately prompting Sig to challenge him.
Ocean Prince encountered Sig near a cave, after attempting to escape from his butler, Otomo. Upon meeting Sig, he immediately asked Sig to become his servant, tempting him with the offer of '3 meals, a nap, and a walk per day'. Sig took him up on the offer. Ocean Prince then remarked that his own servant should be stronger then himself, commencing a Puyo game between the two.
Sig continues his search for Amitie, when Arle crosses his path, requesting a Puyo match. Arle claimes that she may be able to return to her world if she keeps playing against others. She then notices Sig's antennae twitching, much like Rider did, and was wierded out by it. Arle speechless, Sig initiates the Puyo match.
Having traveled out far, he then meets Lemres. Sig attempted to leave right after Lemres greeted him, being stopped by him, Lemres assuming that they were both lost. Lemres suggests the two return to Primp together, to which Sig declines without say, attempting to walk away again. Lemres challenges him to a Puyo match. Sig remarked that Lemres can return alone, should he win. After brutally defeating Lemres, he asks Sig about the note that he's holding. Sig opens it up, to reveal that Lemres was the visitor that Amitie was supposed to guide to Ms. Accord. After grabbing him by the shoulders, then straightening him out like a sheet of cloth, Sig departs, once again.
At the start of the Harahara Course, Ocean Prince (In his human form, as Prince Salde) calls out to Sig, not being recognized at first. He requests that Sig looks for the Lantern of Star, so that Prince Salde may once again turn into a fish, so he may continue to avoid Otomo. They set off on their short journey, as Sig challenges the following:
Sig and Prince Salde venture to the forest, and come across Dongurigaeru. Prince Salde requests that Sig fetches it for him, beliving that it is a regular acorn. Upon being called a mere foodthing, Dongurigaeru ribbits angrily. It then ambushes the two, somehow initiating a Puyo match.
Tarutaru stops Sig and Prince Salde, to ask where Raffine is. Sig claims he doesn't know, to which Tarutaru believes he is lying, due to him smelling like her. He then blocks their way, challenging Sig to a Puyo match.
Yu & Rei
Upon arriving at a haunted house, Prince Salde hides. Sig is then met by Yu & Rei, confronted with a quiz by the two. Sig answers both graveyard-themed questions correctly, netting him a 'Gorgeous Puyo Match', to which Sig cheers about.
After the previous match, Prince Salde rejoins him, as they encounter the Frankensteins. F. Dad scolds the two, claiming that they ought to be more attentive with children(As F. Kid translates). Prince Salde then prompts Sig to challenge the two along, pleasing them. Sig snidely accepts.
Upon meeting Amitie, she questions who Sig has with him. Prince Salde introduces himself, to which Sig then lists the benefits he recieves from being his servant. Amitie questions said benefits, promting Prince Salde to command Sig initiate a Puyo match with her. He gladly does as he requests.
Prince Salde is eager to seek out the "Lantern of Star", asking Baldanders for it's location once he sees it cross his way. Being a dog, Baldanders answers in barks. The barking enrages Prince Salde, to which he accuses Baldanders of wasting his time, since he cannot understand it. He then orders Sig to challenge it to a Puyo match.
At the entrance of the Arca Ruins, Akuma awaits. When the two meet him, he says that what they seek is in the next room, but they must be powerful enough to defeat the dangerous foe within the next room. Akuma initiates a Puyo match with Sig to test his power. After the match, Akuma hands Sig the "Charm of Kumamori", which reads 'Ito Haraito'.
After Sig reads the "Charm of Kumamori", Strange Klug appears, right after having possessed Klug's body. Afterwards, it claims that its true body might be elsewhere. At their confrontation, Prince Salde notices that Strange Klug has the "Lantern of Star" in its possession. Directly after, Strange Klug points out his red arm, recognizing him as the descendant of its other half. Prince Salde prompts Sig to devote himself to claiming the lantern with a Puyo match. Sig stares at his red hand in curiosity as it glows, while Strange Klug points out that a spell (the "Charm of Kumamori") has enchanted Sig, preventing its soul from resonating with him. Strange Klug disregards it, claiming that it can simply disenchant it once it wins the Puyo match.
Sig wins, and Prince Salde snatches the "Lantern of Star". After it is in his possesion, Ocean Prince then transforms back into a fish. At Strange Klug's dismay, Sig leaves once Ocean Prince calls him to the oceanside, where they say their farewells. Once they say their goodbye's, Ocean Prince swims into the ocean, only to be engulfed by a whale as Sig looks on, just slightly affected.
Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary
Sig's story in Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary. His opponents in the tournament are as follows:
Sig's first opponent is Onion Pixy. He quickly and angrily tells Sig to give up on Oniko, to which he nonchalantly agrees to. Onion Pixy's still not convinced. Although Sig openly acknowledges that Oniko is Onion Pixy's girlfriend and that he mustn't intrude, Onion Pixy decides to settle the matter through the Puyo match.
Sig's second opponent is Arle, who opens the meeting with a friendly statement. She asks him if he also likes the color blue, to which Sig answers that he does, and that it's the "sky" and the "ocean". Arle is reminded of her world, and expresses that while she likes this world, she's homesick as well. She wonders if she can find a clue in her Puyo matches.
Sig's third opponent is Baldanders, who eagerly greets him. He's bored, but Sig can't play with him as he's in a tournament—neither can anyone else, because they're also busy with the tournament. Sig confirms this with Baldanders and, as their match is coming up, decides to play with him.
Sig's fourth opponent is Suketoudara. Sig, seeing Suketoudara is a fish, wonders if he's Ocean Prince's friend. Suketoudara takes this as his dance not getting popular enough to be known and finds it odd. Sig replies by saying he doesn't dance, but plays Puyo. He proceeds by accidentally upsetting Suketoudara by calling him "Uncle".
Sig's fifth opponent is Ms. Accord. Although Ms. Accord is the one hosting the tournament, she wants to enjoy it as well as test her students. Sig likens this to a pop quiz, and they get started.
Sig's sixth opponent is Lemres, who asks if Sig is hungry and offers him either one of two different candies. Sig wants both, so he chooses neither. They instead have a match.
Sig's seventh opponent is Ocean Prince. Sig feels hungry and remembers that servitude to Ocean Prince grants free meals. Under normal circumstances, this would be the case; the prince claims that tournaments have strict laws, so he can't help him. Sig asks what laws are, to which Ocean Prince responds in befuddlement. He teaches him what laws are, then introduces the tournament "law": that no one shall defeat Ocean Prince or else they will be thrown in the dungeon. Sig considers the dungeon to be a meager punishment and challenges him anyway.
Sig's eighth and final opponent is Rulue, who starts off by wondering where she is. Sig informs her that she's in Primp, a location unbeknownst to her. He asks her who she is, but she declines by saying he's too young to be told. He starts to go, but Rulue cuts him off and introduces herself anyway, though rather graciously. She asks if he knows "her darling" Satan, but he does not. He asks if she's played Puyo on the way here, then brings up Arle. Rulue becomes distressed to know that Arle is in Primp Town as well, and tells Sig that she is her rival. Sig declares that he'll fight for Arle, and the battle ensues.
Sig, now the champion of the tournament, meets with Ms. Accord to receive his medal and make his wish. He wishes for new insects in the forest. Unfortunately, Ms. Accord explains that the medal doesn't like insects, so the wish is denied. When Sig asks why, she adds that the medal doesn't have any hands to drive bugs away. Sig suggests he could catch the bugs, but leaves it at that and accepts the medal's dislike for insects.

Ringo meets Sig in the classroom, after a match, Sig leads Ringo to Raffine, and goes along with them to meet Feli on the roof, after that though, Sig doesn't reappear in the story.
Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary
Sig's story in Puyo Puyo! 20th Anniversary. His opponents are: Ringo, Lidelle, Raffine, Lemres, Amitie (Who then tags along), Feli, Klug and Ms. Accord
Sig's first opponent is Ringo. Sig is sitting in the forest when Ringo finds him, saying that the scent of honey in the forest led her to him. She asks Sig if he was eating the honey, to which Sig responds that he had left the honey to catch bugs. The subject of bug-catching leads Ringo to bring up his left arm. Sig says that his arm has always been like this, but Ringo is skeptical, and challenges him to a Puyo match to prove that it is real. After this, Ringo asks what exactly his left arm is. Sig replies that he doesn't know, nor does he particularly care about it. However, his conversation with Ringo piques his curiosity about his hand.
Sig's second opponent is Lidelle, who also comes across him in the forest. Lidelle finds Sig staring at his arm, and asks him why it, and his left eye, are red. When Sig replies that he doesn't know, Lidelle asks him about the blue object that occasionally appears behind him. As Sig replies that he does not know, the object in question appears behind him. With Lidelle now extremely curious, she challenges him to a Puyo battle. After this, Lidelle claims that she caught a glimpse of it, but could not tell what it was. Sig responds that his left arm is starting to bother him, the reason being that he can't catch bugs with it.
Sig's third opponent is Raffina, who asks what Sig is doing in the forest. Sig responds that he is thinking about things, namely his arm. He says that it has been like this for as long as he could remember, and wonders aloud how it came to be. Raffina is suddenly angered by this, saying that she thought the reason Sig's arm is the way it is was because he had been training to make it more muscular. When Sig denies these claims, she challenges him to a Puyo match. After this, Sig asks Raffina why his arm is red, to which Raffina replies that she does not know, nor does she care.
Sig's fourth opponent is Lemres. Lemres comes across Sig staring at his hand, and asks him if he is hungry, offering him some candy. Sig turns him down, and asks him why his arm is red. Lemres says that he does not know and challenges Sig to a Puyo battle, offering Sig five candies if he wins.
Sig's fifth opponent is Amitie. Amitie discovers Sig still sitting in the forest and asks him what he is doing. Sig responds that his arm has been bothering him recently, and that he cannot catch bugs with it. Amitie replies that she always thought Sig's arm was cool, and together with his left eye, thought it was his way of being fashionable. Sig says that he just wants to catch bugs. Amitie suggests that a Puyo battle might give them an idea of what to do. After this, Sig still has no idea of what to do, so Amitie suggests they go looking for someone that might know what to do. From this point on, Amitie tags along with Sig.
Sig's sixth opponent is Feli, who claims that she foresaw that Sig and Amitie would come to her to ask something. Amitie explains that Sig wants to change his left arm to normal. Feli explains that she does not know how to change it. Just as she is about to explain why Sig's arm is the way it is, she shifts into her divination ritual. Amitie calls on Sig to engage in a Puyo battle to calm Feli down. Once Feli is calmed down enough, she suggests that Sig and Amitie seek out the one known as "Glasses", saying that it is his fate to do so.
Sig's seventh opponent is Klug, who is the "Glasses" that Feli was referring to. Klug is irritated by their sudden intrusion, claiming that he is busy reading a very important spellbook, and asks that they leave him alone. When Sig asks him about his left arm, Klug ponders on it, saying that he senses a strong power emanating from it. He notes that this power is very similar to that of his book. Furthermore, whenver the two are near each other, he feels a strange feeling unlike any other. Despite all of these facts, Klug claims that he does not know anything about Sig's arm. Amitie suggests that Sig's arm and Klug's book could be related, but Klug does not agree. Klug then says that he will have a Puyo match with Sig as payback for wasting his time.
Sig's eighth and final opponent is Ms. Accord. Sig and Amitie arrive at Primp Town's Magic School, where they find Ms. Accord. Amitie says that Ms. Accord would have to know something about Sig's arm, and the two explain the situation to her, namely that Sig can't catch bugs with his left arm. Ms. Accord says that if Sig can beat her in a Puyo battle, then she will tell him how to fix his problem. When Sig wins, Ms. Accord suggests that Sig simply catch bugs with his right arm instead. Amitie is less than pleased at such an anticlimactic ending, but is fine with it as long as Sig is happy.
