Skeleton T Relaxed Skeleton T

Skeleton T is a skeleton who is obsessed with Japanese tea. His catchphrase is "o-cha!", meaning tea. Skeleton T is also known for his very weak AI; so weak, in fact, that he never takes advantage of the ability to rotate his Puyo.

Profile

Appearance

Skeleton T is generally depicted as, well, a skeleton, with little beads in his eye sockets where his eyes should be. He is almost always carrying a cup with the 茶 kanji on it, which means "tea". In the Compile Era, he was among the few characters not to have the Puyo colors on his own person, but the 茶 cup is nearly always green: in more recent titles, he's been associated with the colors red (Puyo 7) and currently blue (Puyo!! Quest). In Puyo 7, he is accompanied by two other skeletons also referred to as Skeleton T: the yellow one, which is his Mini form, has yellow hands and a fatter head, while the blue one, which is his Mega form, has a larger skull with a crack in it.

Personality

Generally, his entire person surrounds itself around tea: there's nary a moment where he isn't looking for it if he doesn't already have it. He is generally a very calm person when he has his tea, but having it taken away from him sets him off, such as when Draco Centauros evaporates it in Puyo Puyo SUN.

Abilities

As previously mentioned, Skeleton T is infamous for his inability to rotate his Puyo: this is not only spoofed in a 4-koma, but also directly referred to in Puyo SUN in one of his victory quotes. Skeleton T, in battle, displays numerous abilities that revolve around both attacking with his body and with his tea cup: in Puyo SUN, he uses Houjicha, Hatomugicha, Pu'erh-cha, Shirubestagimunemacha, Umekobucha, and Gyokuro, while other games have him attack by throwing his head.

History

Madou Monogatari series

Skeleton T makes his first appearance in the Madou Monogatari 123 trilogy, where he is mostly known for guarding the spell of "Healing." In the PC98 version, he wields a sword and shield, possibly to make him look less "cute", though he stills maintains a reference to his tea obsession.

Skeleton T has a brother in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji called Skeleton D. Similar to Skeleton T's addiction to tea, Skeleton D has an addiction to alcohol.

Puyo Puyo (1992)

Skeleton T is the first opponent in the Beginner course. He enjoys his tea for a few moments before warning Arle that she should run away.

In the English version, he is known as Skeleton. He claims that his herbal potion will make him invincible; Silvana responds by telling him that he'll need all the help that he can get.

Puyo Puyo Tsu

In Puyo Puyo Tsu, Skeleton T can be fought on the first floor. Here, he offers Arle some tea, which she declines, knowing it was poisoned, where Skeleton T is surprised and wonder how she knew that he put paralysis/sleeping herbs in it... To which she replies that he just told her.

In Ketteiban's rally mode, he is the fifth opponent you fight after the four practice stage characters.

Puyo Puyo Sun

In Puyo Puyo Sun, Skeleton T appears as the first opponent for Draco Centauros. Skeleton T is talking about his tea when Draco gets annoyed at it and breaths fire at teapot, causing all the tea inside to evaporate. Skeleton T gets incredibly frustrated about this and Draco tells him that if he has a problem, he should settle it over a Puyo match.

Puyo Puyo~n

Skeleton T is the first opponent, as usual. When Arle asks for if he knows the location of Carbuncle, he doesn't know what Carbuncle is and assumes it's something that goes with tea. In the Game Boy Color version, he is notably not the first opponent: that title goes to Pierrot.

Puyo Puyo Box

He is not the first opponent once again (that would be Draco Centauros), however he is the first boss that guards one of the 6 Medals needed to get into the Happy Tower. When fought in Rally Mode, he is often the first opponent: additionally, he only plays under OPP rules.

Minna de Puyo Puyo

In Minna de Puyo Puyo, Skeleton T appears as the first opponent for Arle in Hajimari Forest. Once again he offers Arle some tea. This time Arle drinks the tea, he tells Arle that she has fallen straight into his trap, as the tea was made with used tea bags. (Leftover from last month in the Japanese version.) Arle points out the fact that Skeleton T shouldn't be able to talk, much less drink tea, without a tongue.

Skeleton T appears later in the game as the 4th opponent in Satan's Castle, right before Rulue, Schezo and Satan. Arle is surprised that Skeleton T is even here as Arle tells him he is way out of his league. Despite this, they still play a round of Puyo. Unfortunately, Skeleton T still hasn't figured out how to rotate his Puyo.

Puyo Puyo 7

Skeleton T appears throughout the story mode in Puyo Puyo 7, where he battles Andou Ringo in a few matches, all of them following the same goal of finding tea. In this game, he is accompanied by two other nameless skeletons. In Transformation, the skeletons switch places rather than transforming.

Puyo Puyo!! Quest

Skeleton T first appeared as a blue event quest boss in the Halloween Festival event from October 30 2013. His first playable appearance is the Relaxed Skeleton T (ほっこりスケルトンT) alt as a special grant reward for the SEGA Arcade Vending Machine Linkage promotion from February 3 2014.

The original was not made playable until May 31 2014, as a support card for the Poison Apple Festival. He is in the same series as Oshare Bones, Frankensteins and Akuma, having similarly distributed stats and skills.

Trivia

  • The "T" in his name likely stands for "tea"
  • In Kirby's Avalanche, Waddle Dee uses his AI.
  • Skeleton T is one of three characters that change voice actors in between the Saturn and N64 ports of Puyo Puyo Sun. The others are Rulue and Incubus.
  • The English manual of Minna de Puyo Puyo states that Skeleton T may actually be female, but card description texts in Puyo Puyo!! Quest states he is male.
  • Oshare Bones is very similar to Skeleton T and also has very weak AI.
  • In the Game Gear port of Puyo Puyo (1992), Skeleton T can rotate his Puyo.
  • Not counting Ent, Skeleton T is the only member of the PPQ Monster series cards to have totally new art as opposed to reused or redrawn art.
