|“||I'm no plushie! My name's Xuppu, you nitwit!||”|
—Xuppu, "Party Crasher"
Xuppu is currently living with Marinette Dupain-Cheng while his Miraculous is dormant within the Chinese Miracle Box. When the situation requires it, he temporarily becomes active to help Lê Chiến Kim transform into King Monkey.
Xuppu is 10 centimeters (or 4 inches) tall 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.
Xuppu is pretty energetic and talkative, which can come off as funny sometimes. Xuppu is still wise and courageous as all shown in episodes as shown in "Sandboy" and "Party Crasher", for examples, but does not like being called names, as shown gotten offended when being called a plush.
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 user 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.
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.
In "Ephemeral", Xuppu meets Kim again when they are needed to help Ladybug fight again Moolak.
Before Season 2
When the concept of derision 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 with the
Ancient Chinese Monkey Miraculous holder in China then, returned to China thousands of years later 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.
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.
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.
In "Truth", Xuppu was accidentally released from the Miracle Box when Marinette tried to figure it out in his eagerness explored Marinette's room. During a video call on his new guardian's computer, Xuppu and the others surrounded the screen in amazement. When Marinette leaves for her date with Luka he and his fellow kwamis hid with the Miracle Box, but they heard the titular villain broke into Marinette's room, he attempted to use his powers but was stopped by Wayzz being reminded of the dangers. After the titular villain's defeat, Xuppu and the others saw that Marinette was sad about breaking up with Luka to the point of tears, Xuppu didn't know exactly how to help but joined with the other kwamis in giving their new guardian a group hug.
In "Lies", Xuppu was seen with Mullo and come across an apple by Marinette's computer trying to play with it but drop on the keyboard and yet couldn't agree on how to move it and stepped on the keyboard changing the screen.
In "Gang of Secrets", Xuppu was seen talking with the other kwamis until their guardian arrives home. Later, hears Marinette voiced her distress about being condemned to a life of secrets and lies forever because of her alter ego.

Then, saw some of his fellow kwamis playing with one of Marinette designer hats and decided to join in the fun. Sometime later he helps in cleaning up Marinette's room.
In "Furious Fu", hearing that Master Fu was returning, Xuppu along with the other kwamis expressed dear desire to see him despite Marinette trying to keep them hidden for their safety and when his new guardian voiced concerns about leaving the Miracle Box unguarded. Xuppu realized if someone stayed to guard the box, the others could go but when they cheated their way out so all of them going they were stopped by Marinette with no choice they used the "pup dog eyes" on her and Marinette reluctantly agreed. However Xuppu and his fellow kwamis had a hard time keeping quiet while in Marinette's bag but heard that Master Fu is doing well and become a great painter.
But returning home, Xuppu realized that Su-Han had returned to reclaim the box as he was the previous guardian before Master Fu's incident and with Su-Han's strictness he sadly returned to the box. After seeing Ladybug's valiant actions against the titular villain, Su-Han realized that Master Fu's choice wasn't so bad allowing Xuppu and the others to stay with Marinette.
In "Sole Crusher", Xuppu was watching Marinette work on a sewing project until they heard a commotion outside causing the kwamis to hide in Miracle Box. Upon hearing that Marinette was captured he heard Kaalki get the confirmation from Tikki to use her powers to find Cat Noir and explain the situation.
In "Queen Banana", seeing Marinette working on something, Xuppu though it was a table cloth for a picnic until being corrected that they were costume capes for the superhero of creation and villain of destruction.

Noticing the time, he watched Marinette hastily leave.

In "Simpleman", Xuppu like the other kwamis were hiding while Marinette was babysitting Manon and her friends upon hearing his guardian offer to play hide and seek he along with Kaalki and Stompp knowing it's a bad idea shook their heads no.
