Biography[]

Appearance[]

Drabo is a small humanoid vampire, wearing purple robes and a bat-like diadem. He has black hair, along with bat wings attached to the top of his head, as well as prominent fangs, pointed ears, and red irises.

Personality[]

Drabo appears to have a bit of a childish disposition due to his young age, despite being a vampire. Unlike his bloodthirsty ancestor, he loves sweets, which are stated to be his favorite food, and video games, much like an ordinary human child.

Abilities[]

Drabo is able to transform into a swarm of bats, as demonstrated in his pre-battle cutscene in Puzzle Bobble 2. His vampire heritage also gives him an extremely long lifespan, as he is stated to be 586 years old, which to vampires is apparently still considered to be very young.

History[]

Puzzle Bobble 2[]

Drabo is the ninth opponent encountered in the Vs. Mode of Puzzle Bobble 2, and is fought within a mansion in Rastan's Forest. Before the fight, Bub approaches his coffin, causing Drabo to fly out in the form of a swarm of bats, startling Bub before transforming into his humanoid form.

Puzzle Bobble 3[]

Drabo has a small cameo in Puzzle Bobble 3, appearing as a capsule toy in the background of Priccio's stage.

Etymology[]

Drabo's name is a combination of "Dracula" and and -bō (ぼう?), a Japanese honorific that expresses endearment typically used to refer to young boys.

Trivia[]

  • There is another coffin next to Drabo's in his pre-battle cutscene from Puzzle Bobble 2 marked with a female symbol, as well as the name "Drajo". Given that Drabo's own coffin had a male symbol and his name written on it, it is likely that Drajo is an unseen female counterpart of Drabo.
    • Additionally, "-jo" is a suffix often used to refer to a young woman, similarly to the "-bo" suffix that Drabo's name comes from.
