FFVIII wiki icon

PuPu is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII. It appears in the crater on Balamb where Balamb Garden once stood after the UFO? has been destroyed. It will still appear in endgame if the player hasn't completed the sidequest yet.

Completing the PuPu sidequest in the Steam and Remastered versions earns the player the achievement/trophy UFO.


Battle Edit

PuPu is a blue alien creature who will not attack the party, only requesting Elixirs. The player can either give it five Elixirs, kill it, or escape. By giving it Elixirs, PuPu thanks the player, and hands out the unique PuPu Triple Triad card. The PuPu card can be turned into a Hungry Cookpot that teaches a Guardian Force the Devour command. This item can only be obtained by modifying the PuPu card, devouring PuPu, in a rare Angelo Search, or via Chocobo World.

If the player attacks PuPu, it drops an Accelerator used to teach a Guardian Force the Auto-Haste ability. However, the PuPu card is one-of-a-kind, whereas Accelerators can be obtained in limitless quantity by winning and refining Cerberus and Kiros cards from the CC Group and the Queen of Cards in endgame.

If the player escapes from the battle, PuPu cannot be encountered again.

PuPu can be eaten with the Devour command, and it will boost the eater's speed stat by one.

PuPu is one of the few non-boss monsters that is unaffected by Quistis's Degenerator Limit Break, Selphie's Rapture and Odin's never appears against it. The others are Grat, Vysage, Lefty, Righty, Cactuar, Tonberry, Esthar Soldier (Terminator) and UFO?.
