Fuga is one of the characters from Pop'n Music Sunny Park. His element is Wind.
It is up to you whether to believe or disbelieve the scarlet crow’s talk of ‘fate.’
The wind-manipulating, yo-yo-loving Fuga is first introduced as a quiet, shy man with emotionless expressions. However, according to his Win animations, he can be very clumsy and has a rather soft side beneath his cold exterior. Although he is part of the Tsugidoka! gang, he was a rival of Retsu, though as the series progresses to the next game, they become extremely close friends, to the point of Fuga being the only one able to save Retsu when he loses control of his purification powers. Fuga wields a green diamond-shaped lapis when he arrives at "Another World", created by MZD.
Fuga is a calm, composed-looking man with an unemotional appearance. Beyond his indifferent mask, he is actually a deeply kind and caring person, who would do anything for his friends. Like the rest of the Tsugidoka! gang, he has a strong sense of justice, and uses his power positively to fight evil. He seems to be especially stubborn and headstrong, moreso even than Retsu himself.
Fuga's shy and solitary nature kept him from doing much in the beginning of Lapistoria, since he was too nervous to go out and gather information-- it would mean too much social interaction. In Risette's sub-story, Love Premonition...?, he admits that he can't talk to people he doesn't know. He is extremely self-conscious, and often doubts his abilities, as shown in his own story Fuga, the Cat, and the Hurricane; along with Albireo. But through the course of the story, he dedicates himself more and more to finding a solution to the pollution problem. Convinced that the truth lies somewhere else, he becomes single-minded, and works separately from the Tsugidoka! gang. Eventually his solitary investigation leads to distrust between him and his best friends, though he doesn't seem to notice the problem until it leads to disaster. Nevertheless, the knowledge he gathers from his secret investigations ends up being critical to saving Retsu, and by extension, many of the main characters in the story.
His clumsiness and problems caused a running gag in the series; in the Seaside School sub-story, Fuga tries to use his wind powers to cool off Rinka's takoyaki, but instead gets it all over her. In his Lapistoria LOSE animation, Fuga is using his wind powers to entertain the Tsugidoka! gang, but he accidentally blows Hiumi and Rinka's skirts up, sending him and Retsu outside for a received punch from the embarrassed girls. His MISS animation consists of him dropping his yo-yo, picking it back up and dusting it off carefully with an awkward expression.
Fuga spent his childhood alone and isolated from his peers, watching other children play together from under a faraway tree. Playing with his yo-yo, from where his parents gave him as a present for his birthday, he eventually learned to channel his wind powers through it. After transferring into Retsu's school, he befriended the Tsugidoka! gang and opened up more. In Lapistoria, Fuga expresses more emotion, showing his true kindness and strength of character; in his character design comments, Chihhi says that his animations are meant to show us the variety of expressions and emotions that he had never shown in Sunny Park. He currently works and lives at his family's dry cleaners in Kawaramachi, where he seems to be very skilled at, and proud of, his job.
Fuga is a peach-skinned man with short, light green hair and cerulean eyes. On his ears are large, teal-colored headphones. His uniform consists of a light gray sweater with rolled up sleeves and a black neck tie, a long white scarf, and black finger-cut gloves. He sports a pair of denim jeans and gray shoes. Fuga wields a yellow-green yo-yo that controls wind. His original color palette is used again in Akashic Core.
In his 2P color palette, Fuga gains yellow color schemes, such as blond hair and dark goldenrod eyes, neck tie, and pants. His top is a pale walnut color and his scarf and yo-yo are both colored red. His shoes remain gray.
Fuga's 3P coloring gives him silver hair and deep purple eyes. His tie and gloves are lavender colored, and his sweater is pale teal. His pants are a very light shade of gray with white shoes, and his scarf is light pink. His yo-yo is a light cream color.
Fuga's appearance does not change much; Fuga now wears his sweater tied at his waist, and only his white shirt and blue bow tie are shown.
Fuga's 2P palette gives him a slightly dark skin tone, reddish-brown eyes, a light blue-gray hair color, and a pink color for his headset. Fuga's shirt is colored violet, his pants and gloves are dark blue, and his shoes are plain white. His sweater is colored in the same manner as his hair. Fuga's yo-yo is colored red instead of light green, while his neck tie is white. Fuga's lapis is colored blue instead of his signature green hue. His 2P color palette appears again in Dimension Gale from the same game.
Fuga always appears in every Tsugidoka! character's FEVER!, Lose, and Win animations.
