Xuppu is a kwami. The monkey kwami is connected to the Monkey Miraculous.

I'm no plushie! My name is Xuppu, you nitwit!

—Xuppu to Kim, "Party Crasher"

Xuppu[5] is the kwami of Jubilation[6] who is connected to the Monkey Miraculous.[7] With his power, Xuppu's wearer can use the circlet to transform into a monkey-themed superhero.

Xuppu is currently dormant in his Miraculous within the Chinese Miracle Box, being kept by Marinette Dupain-Cheng. When the situation requires it, he temporarily becomes active to help Lê Chiến Kim transform into King Monkey.

Appearance

Xuppu is 10 centimeters (or 4 inches) tall[2] and is light brown with a yellow mark on his face. He has yellow ears, brown eyes with the irises being black, and a long tail.

Personality

Not much is known about Xuppu except he's mischievous and playful, as shown in "Sandboy" and "Party Crasher". He is also easily offended, as shown when Kim called him a plushie.

Xuppu is also very brave, in "Truth" as he was willing to fight the titular villain, using his disruptive powers on him. But his bravery also bordered on recklessness like Cat Noir and Chloé Bourgeois as Xuppu's actions could've caused serious consequences.


Abilities

Xuppu can fly, levitate, and phase through solid objects. He can also carry objects that are larger and/or heavier than himself.

As a kwami, Xuppu is able to transform the holder of the Monkey Miraculous into a monkey-themed superhero.

He gives his wielder the ability to use the superpower Uproar, which allows the holder to summon an item with their weapon to later throw it at the opponent. Once struck, it will cause the target's powers and abilities go temporarily out of control.

Relationships

Lê Chiến Kim

At first, Xuppu looks like he and Kim don't get along (since Xuppu calls Kim a nitwit and Kim calls Xuppu a plushie) as the two make exchange of funny faces but is impressed that Kim is a quick learner.

History

Before Season 2

When the concept of jubilation came into existence, Xuppu came into existence. Before the Miraculous jewels were created, Xuppu and the other kwamis traveled all over the universe unable to interact with humans. Then, thousands of years ago, a mage created the Miraculouses. Xuppu started out in China and was later in Japan. When his Miraculous was not being worn, Xuppu was dormant in the Monkey Miraculous, which was stored inside the Miracle Box.

Season 2

In season 2, Xuppu was dormant in the Monkey Miraculous.

In "Sandboy", Xuppu was celebrating Nooroo's birthday in the Miraculous box with the other kwamis and was excited when Tikki and Plagg arrived. They marveled at the gift Tikki brought as they thought it was a paintbrush, and they drew a line with the marker to the other kwamis. Starting to play the music, Xuppu danced with the others kwamis. When it came the time to find Nooroo, they got into position in an effort to contact him, but instead, they contacted his wielder instead. Upon hearing his voice, they shuddered at the thought of being his slave and prevented themselves from being discovered when they all cut off the connection. They realized if they contacted Nooroo's wielder, rather than Nooroo, then someone must have been akumatized and that Tikki and Plagg's wielders were in danger.

Season 3

During Season 3, Xuppu was dormant in the Monkey Miraculous.

In "Party Crasher", Xuppu and his Miraculous are given to Lê Chiến Kim by Master Fu after Ladybug, Cat Noir, Carapace, Viperion and Pegasus had failed against Party Crasher. Upon meeting him, Xuppu was offended when Kim called him a plush toy, sticking his tongue after he introduced himself. The two then engaged in a match of making funny faces at each other. Afterwards, the two transformed into King Monkey and use their power Uproar to make Party Crasher's powers go haywire, allowing them to free the other heroes and defeat the party villain. Xuppu was returned to the Monkey Miraculous which was given back to Master Fu.

In "Kwamibuster", he was activated along with his kwami brothers and sisters to help Multimouse enact her plan of rescuing Tikki and Plagg. During the confrontation, Xuppu was one of the few kwamis captured but was set free with the help of Multicat. After Kwamibuster's defeat, Xuppu and others cheered for Marinette as their plan was success and was returned to Miracle Box.

In "Miracle Queen", Xuppu was activated by a possessed Kim, transforming him into King Monkey and his powers were used against the heroes until they managed to deakumatize the titular villain. After Hawk Moth and Mayura fled and the role of Guardian was passed to Ladybug, Xuppu and his Miraculous were retrieved and placed in the Miracle Box.
