Suketoudara takes the appearance of a stylized fish with big lips, with the upper part of his body is red in color while the lower half ranges from a white to cream in color. He also has tan-colored human-like arms and feet, which are located in where his pelvic and pectoral fins should go.
Suketoudara is a very bold character, making his presence known wherever he goes. He thinks very highly of himself, as in the Japanese versions of Puyo, he uses the first-person pronoun ore-sama, which is often used as an overly confident way to refer to oneself. His favorite hobby is dancing, as he will often appear on a scene with a cry of "Let's Dancing!". In the English translation of Puyo Puyo Tetris, Suketoudara peppers his speech with fish-related puns. He also seems to lean towards the romantic side, as he has eyes for Seriri, who only sees him as a friend.
Suketoudara's spells include Surf Beat, Ripple Turn, Funky Wave, Soul Dive and Dancin' All Night. These mostly combine water maneuvers and dance moves, which allude to his nature as a fish and his dancing abilities. They are rendered in English as Surfin' Beats, Bubble Time, Do the Wave, and Fish is the word! In older games, those released prior to Puyo Puyo Tetris, his final spell was Finish.
Madou Monogatari series
Suketoudara debuted as a random enemy in Madou Monogatari 123.
Suketoudara is the second opponent in Scenario mode. As Suketoudara dances, Arle repeatedly tries to talk to him. He eventually gets fed up and starts yelling.
In the English version, he is known as Goby Captain. Silvana claims that he is the weirdest thing that she has ever seen. Goby Captain concludes that Silvana is probably not an intelligent lifeform, and she replies by saying the same about him.
Suketoudara resides on the second floor. He gets offended when Arle calls him ugly and brags on his human legs.
Suketoudara only appears in Arle's story. He hogs an oasis all to himself; however, the other sea creatures object to this and eventually swarm him.
Whenever Suketoudara talks to Arle, Arle states that she has a sudden craving for seafood.
His wish is to give everyone the ability to do a solo dance at a dance party.
An identically designed alt, named Flame Suketoudara (炎のすけとうだら) is included as a special grant reward, obtainable from Famitsu App Android No.007.
