"The main character of the game. Lip is a spirited, cheerful young girl with a strong sense of justice. Because her magic powers are weaker than the other fairies', she can't cast any spells without the help of her magic wand. Even so, Lip is going to do whatever it takes to bring peace back to Popples, so give her a hand!" ― Panel de Pon Official Website[[source]]

Lip (リップ, Rippu) is the main protagonist of the original Panel de Pon game as well as the series as a whole.

Stage Clear


Nice to meet you!

I am Lip, the Fairy of Flowers.

At the beginning of each round,

you'll get hints on how to improve!

Remove all the panels above the Clear Line.

If you can do that, the stage is cleared!

Stay calm, as more haste is less speed!

Vs. Mode


Hello there, I am the Fairy of Flowers, Lip!

This is terrible! Monsters invaded our world.

They've used magic to create

an endless rainfall!

At this rate the water will flood our world!

On top of that they turned all fairies,

my best friends evil!

I have to return this world to be the way it used to be.

I must rescue everyone,

and defeat these wicked monsters!

After Stage 8

E-everyone! It's a good thing we're all safe now!

Let's go and beat those monsters!

Goes to Death Mt.

Her chain voice clip plays and raises her wand.

Walks then she has an explanation mark in her dialogue.

Loses in vs. Mode Death Mt.

How could I lose here!?

Lip's stage in Panel de Pon DS

Lip makes a Japan-only cameo in Panel de Pon DS / Chotto Panel de Pon. The international Puzzle League releases of this game removed legitimate access to this stage. You can only use a cheating device to access the stage in those versions of the game.


Lip has been referenced several times outside of the Panel de Pon Series.

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

As this is Intelligent Systems next game released after Panel de Pon, Lip's name is used for Chapters 3 and 5 in the Arena portion of the game. Because the fan translators didn't know Lip, they translated her name as Ripp, Lipton or simply Rip. The purple colors of the guard is similar to Lip's pink color scheme, as well as the bow which likely references the harp instruments used in the title screen opening or freeing one of the fairies in Vs. mode.
