Poupelin is one of the faeries from the Sailor Moon SuperS movie who serves Queen Badiane by collecting children. He is, in essence, the leader of the faeries, and has the most contact with Badiane.

Biography

He first appears in the beginning of the movie playing a magical song called "Sanji no Yosei" ("Three O'Clock Fairy") on his flute. He uses the tune to hypnotize children and cause them to follow him away from their homes. Queen Badiane enlists the services of Poupelin and three other fairies (Orangeat, Banane, and Perle) to help her steal children away. She tells them that children who are brought to her will never grow old, and will not be harmed.

Poupelin, Banane, and Orangeat feel that what they are doing is not wrong, and that they are protecting the dreams of children by allowing them to sleep peacefully forever. Perle is the only fairie who sees that this is wrong, after meeting ChibiUsa. Poupelin comes to Tokyo to take the children from the city, and ChibiUsa falls under a trance due to his song. She follows the other hypnotized children to a flying boat that is used to take them back to Marzipan Castle, where they will be imprisoned in sleep inside of Dream Coffins. Fortunately, Usagi brings ChibiUsa back to her senses.

The Senshi then meet Poupelin, who attacks them with BonBon Babies. He then creates an illusion for the girls that looks like a gingerbread house, completely fooling them until Tuxedo Mask appears and battles Poupelin. Perle then makes his appearance, causing the BonBon Babies to stop attacking, angering and confusing Poupelin. Poupelin eventually takes ChibiUsa and the other children on his flying boat to Marzipan Castle. The Senshi and Perle follow him on another boat, and when they arrive at the castle high in the clouds, Poupelin, Banane, and Orangeat attack with cannons.

The Senshi land unharmed, but the fairies begin attacking with BonBon Babies, Poupelin controlling blue BonBon Babies. During the course of the ensuing battle, Sailor Uranus severs Poupelin's flute with her Space Sword, causing him to turn into a blue hummingbird that flies away.

Trivia

  • According to the Materials Collection, the romanization of Poupelin's name is literally "Pupuran", which is the Japanese approximation of the French word "Poupelin." A poupelin is a type of French pastry that was popular during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and is made with chou paste and cooked in a mold. During cooking, most of the paste spills out so that all that is left is a crust, which is then filled with cream or mousse. In some very old French texts, the word "poupelin" is occasionally used to refer to a child.
  • Similar to the legendary Pied Piper Of Hamelin, he uses a flute to lead children away from town.
