Sukiya Podes is a foot monster alternatively known as a monopod or sciapod. He looks small and babyish but seems to have a short temper. When he is winning, his eyes sparkle in a cute fashion.


Madou Monogatari series

Sukiyapodes debuted in Madou Monogatari 3 as a basic enemy. He has the ability to clone himself. In the PC-98 version he is nude and has longer, tentacle-like arms. In Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji, he appears as the game's first boss, where he is a guardian, but he appears to be acting strangely. Arle then meets him, but Arle is grossed out by his foot, angering him. He then attacks, but is defeated. He also appears guarding the Dark Orb.

Puyo Puyo (1992)

Sukiyapodes is the third Scenario mode opponent. Arle calls him a giant foot, which angers him. He prepares to use his "Sanjyuumon Kick" against Arle, but she tells him to settle it in a Puyo match.

In the English version, he is known as Small Foot. He claims that all others tremble before him in fear; Silvana boasts that she fears no one.

Puyo Puyo Tsu

Sukiyapodes resides on the first floor. He performs a flying kick from off-screen, knocking Arle unconscious.


  • In Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, Kirby's Avalanche, and Qwirks, Humpty, Kabu, and Gloth use his AI strategy, respectively.
  • In the first Puyo Puyo, he is named "Sukiyapotes." This was likely a romanization error on Compile's part, as the Japanese kana for "t" sounds and "d" sounds are nearly identical. Likewise, his preview window label is POTE in the first game and PODE in subsequent games.
  • In his PC-Engine cutscene, Sailor Moon is referenced.
  • Despite not appearing in Puyo Puyo!! Quest, it is likely they were considered to be included, as concept art for Puyo Puyo!! Quest Arcade shows them as a potential character to appear.
