Ringo states he wears 'tight fitting clothes'. He has a white colored vest with purple stripes and 3 buttons. He wears large boots and his hair is short and hung down. Tee also carries a disc-like weapon that he uses in battle.
Tee is a level-headed and stoic young man, though he appears to be rather self-conscious of how mellow he is when it's pointed out. He isn't afraid to speak his mind or take charge when the situation calls for it, but he is occasionally confused by zany situations and the eccentric personalities of Ringo and her friends.
As the captain of the S.S. Tetra, Tee is able to command the ship and use it to navigate to different locations in space. In battles, his animations show him charging his disc and using it as a throwing weapon against his opponents.
- As the chief engineer of the S.S. Tetra, Ai and Tee work together to make sure the ship is in working condition. Ai admires Tee and sees him as a competent captain. In Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, Ai mentions that he had been working on a communication device to use if Tee ever needs to go far away, such as to the edge of space-time.
- Ess is the first mate of the S.S. Tetra and as such, is Tee's second in command and in charge of the rest of the crew when Tee isn't around. While she is occasionally irritated with Tee's boring personality and lack of style, Tee relies on her and sees her as a reliable and competent crewmate.
- Ex was the previous Tetris King and S.S. Tetra's previous captain, he was the person who was listening in to Tee's captain's reports prior to and during the events of Puyo Puyo Tetris. While Tee had forgotten Ex, he feels saddened by Ex's isolation at the edge of spacetime and wishes to take his place, but is stopped by both Ringo, Ex, as well as Satan and Ecolo's intervention before he commits to a lifetime of solitude.
- During the events of Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, Tee is shown to be aware of Ex's existence, likely because of the portal created between the edge of spacetime and the S.S. Tetra created by Satan and Ecolo during the merging of the first worlds. He and Ex communicate more closely with one another and Ex seems to have a mentor-like relationship with Tee.
- Jay & Elle
- As the youngest members of the crew, Tee is often tasked with getting the twins to behave or to stop pestering Ai. The two twins act rather disrespectful to Tee as they do to everyone, but they do respect him enough to help Ess locate his whereabouts when he is taken by Ex in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2.
- O is Tee's most trusted partner and is the one who records and transmits his captain's reports to Ex.
- Tee and Ringo met during the events of Puyo Puyo Tetris and the two are close friends. The two care about each other greatly, as seen by Ringo intervening when Tee attempts to take Ex's place as the Guardian of Space-time during Puyo Puyo Tetris. When the worlds separate, they say their goodbyes and promise to remember each other, though the worlds separating means that their memories of one another would be erased anyway.
- During Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, Tee feels like he had met Ringo somewhere before. They learned later on from Marle that their bond was still connecting the worlds in spite of their memories being erased and in spite of being separated from each other.
- Zed maintains the health of the crewmembers, and this extends to Tee as well.
Puyo Puyo Tetris
His first appearance is in Chapter 1. He requests for O's latest status update on the Starship Tetra, at first everything being reported as normal. However, the spaceship suddenly starts to malfunction, accidentally warping Arle, Carbuncle, Amitie, and Ringo into the ship. He soon encounters Ringo, teaches her about how Tetris is played, and helps her find the others while at the same time Tee reassuring the other members of the ship Ess, Ai, Jay & Elle, and Zed that Ringo and her friends are not threats. However, the ship starts to malfunction again due the sudden appearances of Puyos. Despite this and other effects, it fails and the ship crashes onto Earth.
Later chapters he would be an ally that helps Ringo, her friends, and the other Tetra members in an effort to repair the ship and for Tee and his crew members to return home.
As a playable character, unlike the other characters that debuted in Puyo Puyo Tetris, he doesn't recycle dropsets or AI when playing Puyo Puyo from the characters that lost their playable status from Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary.
Puyo Puyo Tetris 2
Tee's first appearance in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is Chapter 1. Apparently he had been summoned to Ringo's world by the Keeper Of Dimensions to investigate a strange phenomenon that is attempting to merge the Puyo Puyo and Tetris dimensions.
See the respective PPQ-namespace card pages of Tee for the character's in-game description in Puyo Puyo!! Quest.
|"The Tetris King. As the Captain of the Starship Tetra, he commands a very diverse crew!"|
- He is based on the T-shaped Tetrimino.

Puyo Puyo Tetris/Puyo Puyo Tetris 2
In the Japanese version of Puyo Puyo Tetris, the fifth spell of every Tetris characters (except O) include their names.
Tetris handles chain voices differently from Puyo Puyo. Which voice clip is played (or animation in case of Tetrises) is based on how many Garbage Blocks are sent by a line clear; for instance, the first spell is played when an attack sends 1 line, the second is played when an attack sends 2 lines, and so on, hence why Back-to-Back affects which voice clip/animation is played. The only exceptions are a single combo playing the second chain voice clip, Tetrises having a unique line, in Lucky Attack, and in Fusion, which each use a unique voice pattern. When using Tetris against Puyo Puyo, which voice clip is used is based on how much that line clear would do when battling Tetris, hence why the 4th spell plays when clearing a T-spin Double, when it only sends 3 lines versus Puyo.
