Super attacks are a feature that has first appeared and is prominently featured in Puyo Puyo~n. They can allow things such as preventing Garbage Puyos from falling for a certain period of time, eliminating all Garbage Puyos, eliminating all Puyos of a certain color, and etc. Super attacks have a tendency to make games very unbalanced, due to some characters having very good super attack (Doppelganger Arle's Super Attack prevents Garbage Puyos from falling for 30 seconds, which can easily allow a good player to make a large chain by then), and some having very situational super attacks (Skeleton T's Super attack increases the players attack multiplier if they don't rotate their Puyo pair.)

Building up super attacks

Super attacks are charged by simply making chains. How much you gain is dependent on how many super attacks you have already earned. The more super attacks you have earned, the longer it will take for you to build up another one.

Puyo Puyo~n super attacks

Puyo Puyo~n super attacks are entirely character-specific. They are noted on their respective characters' pages.

Yon supers that remove Puyo interact with All Clears in a way that changes with the version being played. In the Dreamcast version, they can cause All Clears on their own, but this is not the case in either the PlayStation or Nintendo 64 versions. In those, at least a 2 Chain is required before the All Clear is considered valid.

Pocket Puyo Puyo~n super attacks

Most of Pocket Puyo Puyo~n's super attacks are tied to specific AI characters, and must be unlocked for player use. The player is given temporary access to a character's super attack after defeating them in Story. On the other hand, a super attack is permanently unlocked for all modes by raising its character's defeat percentage to 100% or higher in Challenge or getting a specific message after a battle with a defeat rate of 100% and higher in the same mode. Six non-character-specific powers are also unlocked through Challenge mode.
