Boy is a character first appearing in the CS version of pop'n music. He is a shut-in innovator and collector who earned a great reputation with women after winning a game tournament, only tailed by Sylvie after inadvertently humiliating him in the same competition.

AppearanceEdit

Boy is a bowl-haired British man never seen without 3D glasses or a suit, of which took a flashy turn in pop'n music Best Hits!. For the most part, his color schemes are based on that of game consoles; his debut representing a Famicom and Game & Watch, his 2P from the same game a Game Boy, etc.

ピコパコサウンドに誘われて、話題のアイツがアーケード進出。

最近の自慢は自作のハイパー・ハンディー・ゲームマシーン、その名も“ウルトラボーイ・アドバンズ”。
24V駆動(単三電池20本分) でどんなゲームも動く最強マシンだ。

He got invited to Piko Pako Sound, an advanced arcade everybody's talking about.

These days he's been showing off his Hyper-Handy Game Machine - it's called the "Ultra Boy Advance."
It's the most powerful machine operating any game on a 24V drive (20 AA batteries).

イギリス出身の天才ゲーマー。

自称ライバルのシルヴィーには対戦を挑まれてるらしいよ。

A gifted gamer from the United Kingdom.

These days he's been going on about the power-ups for his self-made game machine, I heard.
It looks like his so-called rival Sylvie challenged him to a match.

Pop Beats Boy ジャンルが確定した段階で登場決定とあいなったボーイ、何故アーケード初登場になったかって?それはスタッフがみんなボーイ好きだったからなのさ(マヂ)

ところが曲に合わせたらCS版以上に怪しいキャラとなってかなりびっくり!(スタッフ全員びっくり)CSスタッフに怒られないかとちょっぴりドキドキ…
とにかく動きにはかなりこだわりましたんで、バトルとかダンスオジャマとかも見てあげてくださいませ。

In the middle of figuring out what Boy's genre was going to be, we realized this was going to be his first arcade appearance. It's because the staff all loved Boy (really?)


But we were very surprised to see this suspicious character was getting a song outside of the CS versions! (All the staff members were surprised) I thought I felt my heart pounding a little trying to not make the CS staff mad...
Anyway, the movements turned out pretty good - check out the Battle, Dance and Ojama.

恐れ多くも・・・衣装変えさせていただきまして恐縮です…。元からすばらしいデザインなのでプレッシャー。おまけにバランスが取りづらいのです。頑張ったのですがあんまり変わってないかな?スーツケースを持たせてお茶を濁してみたり。

色も色々つくりました。半ばヤケです。個人的には右上のが気に入ってたりして。おいしそう…。1Pをドットの服にしたせいで、アニメーションしたときに模様がずれてみえてしまいNATSUさんに迷惑をかけてしまったのです。ごめんなさい;。スーツケースを書き足すか迷っているうちに発売されてしまったのは秘密です。(アオニサイ)

アニメーションは全て出来るだけ今までのボゥイの動きと同じになるように描きました。勝ちの時に3Dメガネが光るところだけ追加したのですが、気付いていただけましたでしょうか?ボゥイの勝ち誇った感じが増して、ちょっと気に入ってたりします(笑)(NATSU)

Fantastic... I don't suppose you could let me change his costume...? His original, great design just puts pressure on me. Not to mention it's tough to balance out. I did my best, but nothing's really changed, has it? He's relieved himself of his suitcase to try and throw together matcha.

I also made him a bunch of other colors. It's burning half-way. I like the one in the top-right corner myself. Looks yummy... the 1P's dotted clothes ended up getting NATSU in trouble when time came around to do the animations and the pattern was jumbled up. I'm sorry (embarassed). I was so going to draw him up a suitcase back there too. (Aonisai)

Up until now we made all of Boy's animations as similar as possible to his older ones. I was gonna slap a twinkle onto his 3D glasses for his bouts of victory, but people probably wouldn't notice it. A triumphant feeling welling up inside Boy - I'm kinda likin' it. (laughs) (NATSU).

TriviaEdit

  • Boy shares his birthday with Romeo.
    • His birthdate was modeled after the day the Game Boy initially launched, the handheld additionally inspiring Boy's name and character.
  • Boy's portrait for pop'n music 6's Pop Beats was reworked in the home version to avoid legal issues concerning the Game Boy Advance in his hand.
  • Sylvie appears behind Boy in his FEVER! Win animation for Pop Beats.
