"Doesn't matter how far apart we are. The bonds we've made will remain strong. Everyone's hearts is connected to the people they know and trust. It's those bonds that let us all search for our purpose in life. As long it's a purpose that you believe in, there will always be someone who could help you fulfill it. You, me, and everyone else, there are no barriers. Our hearts are one. Right, Sensei?"
—Teddie, Persona 4

Teddie, known as Kuma in the Japanese version, is a playable character in Persona 4.



Teddie's appearance is based off a stuffed animal. He is an anthropomorphic bear with blue fur. He wears red and white jumpsuit-like clothing. Additionally, the head part of his suit has lenses which allow him to see through the fog in the Midnight Channel. Size-wise, Teddie is the shortest male party member.

Teddie as a human.

After developing an ego, Teddie becomes a teenage boy with blond hair pulled to his left side, bright blue eyes and fair skin. He is shown wearing a white blouse-like shirt with various adornments like a red rose and a flamboyantly designed collar.

Teddie cross-dressing as Alice.

At the school festival when cross-dressing, Teddie has long blond hair with a blue ribbon, wears a blue dress and white stockings as well as black shoes. His cross-dressing alias is very similar to the appearance of Alice from the 1951 Disney adaptation of Alice in Wonderland (see also: Alice). Extra information reveals that Kanji was the one who made this Alice dress.[3]

In the True Ending epilogue of Persona 4 Golden, Teddie appears to have grown taller and has a new outfit: a blue and white striped T-shirt with an anchor design, navy shorts and yellow shoes.

In Persona 4: Dancing All Night, he retains his bear suit, but it now features a disco motif. He's sometimes seen wearing black sunglasses during the Story Mode. When he's in his human form, he wears a similar casual wear, but with minor differences. He now dons a golden cape with white star patterns and crown, and cuffed boots with star patterns.


"If I'm an unknown being, then the way I can change is unknown, too... So all I have to do... is make them not-unknown. Nana-chan's doing her best... Sensei and the others are probably fighting now too... I... I'm just a Shadow, but Nana-chan cheered up when she heard my voice... So what if I'm just a Shadow...!? There must be something I can do! I can't just give up thinking about things... That's why I came back here. Right, Nana-chan...?"
—Teddie before awakening his ultimate Persona

A sad Teddie deli-bear-ating his identity and existence.

Teddie is usually bubbly and cute and is known to lighten the mood when investigating the case, much like Chie. Possibly due to being a Shadow unfamiliar with the human world, or perhaps due to being a cartoon bear, Teddie has a lot of childish naivety, innocence and is pure of heart. He doesn't know a lot of human customs, does not know what "scoring a hot stud" means or what a "manwhore" is.[4] This results in him having a lack of social boundaries, such as when he flirts with Chie and Yukiko, although he fails every time. He's also given a lot of people nicknames for himself to remember. In the beginning of Persona 4 The Animation, he acts much like a coward when Shadows are near, but changes his ways as the story progresses.

He idolizes and respects the protagonist, to the point of calling him "Sensei." In the Japanese version, he has a verbal tic, adding "-kuma" after every sentence, while in the English version his speech is filled with dozens of bear puns, like saying "Bear-sona" while summoning his Persona.


Persona 4 - Shadow Teddie Battle Quotes

Shadow Teddie's existential dread and despair.

Despite his cheery attitude, Teddie sometimes expresses bouts of sadness and confusion. His biggest insecurity is his own identity and potentially having no reason for existence. Throughout the story, similar to Rise Kujikawa, Teddie struggles to find out his own self and his place in both the TV world and the real world, as he has lost his own memories. As the story progresses, Teddie begins to develop a fear that he perhaps has no "true self" and that he has no memories to recover, but continues to search for them regardless. This results in the creation of Shadow Teddie.

He seems to care a lot about Nanako Dojima and calls her "Nana-Chan," even when she's in a near-death state after being kidnapped by Taro Namatame. After Nanako's "death," realizing that he couldn't keep his promise to play with her, and with his memories returned, Teddie grieves over the fact that he was an ordinary Shadow who grew human emotions and wanted to be accepted by others. By the end of the game, following Nanako's recovery, Teddie comes to accept his true self and realizes that if he is an unknown being, then the way he could change was unknown as well, and vows to protect the TV world while living with the Investigation Team in the real world.

As shown in Golden, Teddie shows sympathy towards Marie after learning her true identity, since they both have a similar problem.


Persona 4[]

Teddie serves as the guide for the Investigation Team in the Midnight Channel. At first, he acts as support for battles, but after the party completes the Marukyu Striptease dungeon, he joins in combat, while Rise takes over the support role. Whenever a new team member joins, Teddie is inexplicably able to create glasses so that they can see through the fog in the Midnight Channel.

Teddie in the Midnight Channel.

Teddie was first seen in the Midnight Channel at the time when the protagonist, Yosuke Hanamura and Chie Satonaka search for an exit, after leaving the Desolate Bedroom. Teddie, confused and irritated by their presence, asks them to leave because it's dangerous there and shows them the exit. After Saki Konishi's death, the protagonist and Yosuke enter the TV again in order to investigate. There, they meet Teddie once again, but he gets suspicious and thinks that they are the ones who've been throwing people in. After they try to prove their innocence, Teddie asks them to find the real culprit and makes them promise to do so in order to let them out. When the protagonist first awakens to his Persona, amazed by his power, Teddie immediately calls him "Sensei." He assumes the support role for the team until Rise joins the party.

Shadow Teddie, an existentialist nihilist.

After Teddie defeats Rise's shadow, his own Shadow appears as a larger form of his bear costume, coming out of a hole in the ground. Unlike most of the other Shadow selves, Teddie's Shadow is highly intelligent, speaks in a deep and intimidating voice and does not wait for Teddie to deny him before attacking the party, mocking the Investigation Team's goals of seeking the truth as a waste of effort. However, this may be due to the intervention of another party, as Rise stated she felt the intervention of a powerful presence, most likely Izanami or Ameno-sagiri. It represents Teddie's hiding the truth about his identity, that is, the fact that he is a lost, lonely Shadow. He learned to speak human language and became friendly with humans, taking his bear-like form so that people would like him upon meeting him. Teddie eventually grows a human body so that he can be with other humans. After gaining a personality and losing his Shadow mask, he receives his own Persona. When the team was about to leave after the successful rescue of Rise and the defeat of his shadow, Teddie decides that he wants to be alone for a while and train in order for his fur to grow back and to be stronger.


HD PS Vita Persona 4 Golden - New Teddie

Teddie grows a body.

Right after the death of Kinshiro Morooka, the team asks Teddie, who has come to their side, if someone was thrown in the TV while he was in, but Teddie answers negatively. The ultimate surprise comes when Teddie complains about the heat and tries to remove his bear suit, much to Yosuke's disapproval, because he thought that Teddie was going to be empty inside, but he was not: Teddie had grown a human body while training. Teddie then becomes a front-line ally, giving the support work to Rise. His Persona is Kintoki-Douji of the Star Arcana.

Teddie having another unbearable existential crisis.

When Nanako "dies," Teddie is so devastated and consumed by his own powerlessness of being unable to keep his promise to Nanako, that he feels he lost his reason to live in Inaba. Teddie then disappears and becomes immersed in a world of fog in his bear form, because Shadows are not allowed in the real world, and his human identity, which allows him to leave the Midnight Channel, has faded.

In the game's bad endings where the protagonist is unable to continue solving the mystery, the protagonist finds a farewell letter from Teddie who mentions that he has returned to the Midnight Channel but expresses his gratitude for the time he has spent in the human world with the Investigation Team.

"The purpose of this room is to nurture egos. Shadows, mere fragments of the Ego, have no place here. Very interesting."
Igor, on Teddie's appearance in the Velvet Room.

If the protagonist is able to continue solving the mystery, then on December 5th, Teddie appears in the Velvet Room with the usual occupants nowhere to be seen. He explains the origins of his existence to the protagonist, and is saddened to realize that he is merely a Shadow who took the form of a cartoon bear so that humans would like him. Teddie asks the protagonist to apologize to Nanako in Heaven. However, when the protagonist reveals to Teddie that Nanako never died, Teddie regains his strength. After Teddie leaves the velvet room, Igor, Margaret, and Marie (in Golden) appear, with Igor mentioning how Teddie's appearance is "very interesting," because Shadows should not be in the Velvet Room, with him having "a meaningful smile on his face."

The next day, Teddie returns to the Investigation Team with newfound vigor. After the events of the game, Teddie lives with Yousuke.

Social Link[]

"No matter how hard I think, there's too many things my little brain can't understand... But, I do understand one thing now... I'm glad that I met you, Sensei."
—Teddie to the protagonist, Persona 4
Main article: Social Link/Teddie

A Social Link is automatically established with Teddie through the course of the story. Like the Fool and Judgement S.Links, this Social Link levels up periodically. Once the Social Link automatically maxes out, the protagonist can create Helel, the Light Bearer. Even if the protagonist never maxes out any other of his Social Links, the protagonist will always hear at least Teddie's voice in the True Ending.

Persona 4 Golden[]

"I've made my decision to stop relying on you so much, Sensei. I will now enter the Independent Teddie Chapter of my life... so that this time, I can be your Sensei!"
—Teddie before awakening his 3rd Tier Persona

During the time when the protagonist is alone in Dojima's house, Teddie offers to stay as company and to look after the house. He will join the protagonist when he searches for bugs at the vegetable patch in winter. In one event, the protagonist has the chance to kiss Teddie but he will break away and tell him that his "bearamones are too powerful." He will also ask the protagonist to teach him how to "glomp" after learning from Yosuke's books, the protagonist can choose to show or tell him how, only to have Dojima walking in on their act.

In the Midnight Channel, Teddie has several costumes that make him appear human in the TV world as well as several outfits that feature him cross dressing.

The addition of bikes for the Investigation Team introduced a unique new way of obtaining skills for party members. By going on special forms of dates with each party member, involving the use of the bikes, the player is given the option of either having the party member in question learn a brand-new skill or relearn any old skill that they have forgotten. The bike skills available to Teddie are listed below.

Additionally, like with Rise Kujikawa in Persona 4, each party member is able to learn new skills upon the player's progression of their Social Link. The Social Link skills that Teddie learns upon the development of his Social Link are also listed below.

Teddie hosting Midnight Trivia Miracle Quiz.

Teddie also acts as the host of the minigame Midnight Trivia Miracle Quiz.

Persona 4 The Animation[]

Teddie first appeared when Yu, Yosuke and Chie first appeared in the TV world. He followed the three of them to the mysterious room with the noose. Teddie then gave Yu Narukami the glasses and fled when he sensed the shadows. He is later found by Yu, Yosuke and Chie and tells them how to leave. When Yu and Yosuke returned to investigate what had happened to Saki Konishi, they ran into Teddie again, who led them to where Saki was. When Yosuke's Shadow appeared, Teddie stated that those were Yosuke's inner feelings to which Yosuke denied resulting in the following battle. After the battle, Teddie tells them that Saki and Mayumi Yamano were likely killed by their Shadows. Yu and Yosuke then promised Teddie that they would solve the case.

When Kanji Tatsumi was trapped in the Midnight Channel, instead of gathering information, they gave Teddie the bunny keychain that Kanji made by hand. Using it, he was able to sense his location and lead the team to the bath house. At the entrance, he is confused as to why the team, especially the male members, are reluctant to enter. When they find Kanji and confront his Shadow, he tries to help, but ends up slipping and falling on his face.

Teddie confronting his shadow self

At Marukyu Striptease, he gives Kanji the pair of joke glasses that he'd made as a prank, enraging Kanji. After Kanji throws the unbearably goofy-looking glasses away, Teddie gives him the real pair of glasses. At the end of Rise's dungeon, Rise's Shadow manages to overpower the team and prepares to finish them off when Teddie attacks, managing to weaken her with a burst of power that ends up deflating him.

Upon getting back to normal state, he comes to the human world through the TV in Junes and upon being asked who he was, he said "Duh, Teddie." The employees thought he said Doug Teddie. After showing his human form and asking for clothes, Chie and Yukiko drag him into the store to get some, forgetting his bear head, which scares a little kid and Yu had to go get it back.

During summer holiday in order to stop a fight among the kids he was looking after, Yu borrowed Teddie's suit (possibly without permission) and when Nanako saw Yu with a woman, she had Teddie, Yosuke and Kanji help stalk him, before realizing he was with another woman, shocking them before they become more shocked when they see a kid come up to them.

After fighting with their Persona fails on Ameno-sagiri, as Teddie saw Yu in trouble, his Persona evolves into Kamui and lends his power to Yu to summon the ultimate Persona.

Teddie and Yu's bond is represented by the Persona Saturnus.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth[]

Teddie and company end up in an alternate universe of Yasogami High School during the culture festival. While there, they meet Rei and Zen, who are also trapped. During their first venture into the labyrinth, You in Wonderland, they encounter the unexpected team, SEES, who were also somehow sent to the other world.

Together, they venture through the labyrinths trying to solve the mystery behind their encounter and find the source of the strange world. Teddie often finds himself compared to Koromaru for their statuses as team mascots, and self-proclaims him as his rival.

In the P4 story of the game, Teddie would participate and organize a question game during their venture into the Group Date Cafe.

Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth[]

During a regular visit into the Midnight Channel, their course is unexpectedly altered and they were sent directly into the movie world of Junessic Land, where Rise winds up poisoned and Yosuke separated from them. They encounter the Phantom Thieves and learn of what is happening. To better their chances of escaping the new world, they agree to combine forces, with the P5 hero as their leader.

Teddie learns two unison attacks during special quests, which he can perform with Rise, Aigis and Haru; and Koromaru and Morgana. Teddie often competes with Koromaru and Morgana to be the best mascot, but in the end comes to the conclusion that they are all special.

Persona 4 Arena[]

Teddie's win pose, dressed as Alice.

Teddie returns in the sequel and hosts the P-1 Grand Prix. The rest of the Investigation Team enters the TV world in order to find the truth behind Teddie's doing. It is eventually revealed that the "Teddie" behind the tournament isn't Teddie at all, but Shadow Labrys masquerading as him.

In his story mode, after Yu left Inaba in Persona 4, Teddie kept busy by working at Junes. One day, he can't find Yosuke, so he dives inside the TV world to go look for him. Teddie lands inside a strange classroom with cleaning equipment nearby and uses the items to pull off a MacGyver-worthy escape. He meets Labrys and is awestruck by her beauty and offers to become her "knight." He then runs into a "suspicious dude with a red cloak" and a "celebrity beauty". His story mode is unique from the other characters (not counting Elizabeth and Labrys), because he has Kanji as his final boss rather than the Malevolent Entity or a possessed Labrys. Kanji arrives after the Malevolent Entity escapes, still thinking that everything is a dream. He then tries to challenge someone so he can win the tournament. Teddie then accepts his challenge, after cheers from the female characters.

Additionally, in some of his win poses involve him shedding his "skin" to reveal human Teddie, clothed, naked, or cross-dressing.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax[]

As the final P-1 tournament called P-1 Climax occurring in a Dark Hour Inaba, Teddie is once again being impersonated. This time, it is a same Malevolent Entity who masterminded the previous tournament, and reveal himself to be a Shadow named Hinokagutsuchi. Teddie also encounter and fights his impostor temporarily.

Play Style[]

Teddie is best described as a trickster character with a wide variety of tools including, but not limited to: a teleport, ailment-causing specials and a wide array of throwing items that dynamically change the flow of battle. Unlike previous Arc Systems characters in the same style, his items come out in a preset order. He is also the only character that can inflict rage (via an item and his Furious Action) which allows him to create very devastating setups but also suffer increased damage from the opponent for a small amount of time if he gets caught. His Furious Action especially helps him reset the momentum (and arguably sets it to his advantage due to Rage) as even if the opponent is not hit by the move itself, the counter effect always puts Teddie at a certain distance behind the opponent making a counterattack extremely awkward to perform.

Additionally, he has good range on his normals and can hit confirm into combos fairly well. As a payoff for his numerous blessings, his defense is somewhat poor and whiffing with him is a death sentence. His hitbox is very abnormal compared to the others (he is a bear after all), which leads to situations where combos may whiff on him or specific combos that apply to Teddie only. He also lacks an overhead attack, excluding his All-Out Attack which has a noticeable startup.

His leitmotif is known as "Kuma Kuma Circus!" (localized as either "Teddie Circus!," "Bear Bear Circus!" or "Teddie Teddie Circus" and can go either way on those).

Score Attack[]

Teddie is the fourth character the player faces in Score Attack. His damage is increased, he's heavier than normal and Teddie Circus is sped up to high speeds and does 3 trips around.

    • Some design sketches for Teddie indicate that he was originally planned to be female.
    • Teddie imitates Takaya Sakaki's scene at the love hotel from Persona 3 when the protagonist and the team go there for the school trip in Port Island.
    • In the Japanese version, he uses the alter ego Kumada (熊田, lit. "bear field," but can also be interpreted as クマだ, or 'It's Kuma!" or may be a pun on the name, "Yamada") instead of retaining his original name once he comes out to the real world. Kumada is a common Japanese last name.
    • When the group plays "King's Game," he and Kanji kiss regardless of number choice, but it is not seen on-screen. Choosing number three implies that Teddie was likely intoxicated, although his dialogue towards Kanji and flirtatiousness with Yu implies he may have had the intent to kiss him, while choosing number one shows Teddie had simply missed.
    • Inside the DVD of Persona 4, there is hidden audio of Teddie describing Naoto's current status in battle when he is in the supporting role. This scenario is impossible considering the timeline of the game, since the team rescues Naoto after Teddie joins the party as a fighter.
    • In the animated cutscenes of the game, the mouth of Teddie's bear suit does not move after he develops an ego, but in the anime, his mouth moves even after he obtains his human form. This is also changed in the new animated cutscenes in Persona 4 Golden, but in the cutscenes from the original game, his mouth still doesn't move.
    • One of Teddie's usable weapons, Strega Claw is a reference to Strega from Persona 3.
    • In Persona 4 Golden, when wearing a Gekkoukan High uniform (in human form), Teddie imitates Ken Amada's victory pose and says his lines. He also spins an imaginary spear in the victory pose.
    • In Persona 4 Golden, Teddie, near the end of the game, visits the protagonist during lunch at school to suggest hanging out later, much like other Social Link characters. This is the only time in the game he does so, as his Social Link is part of the game's plot and non-optional.
    • Teddie, in some regards, is similar to another Shadow, Ryoji Mochizuki. However, Teddie gained a human form due to him gaining a Persona, while Ryoji gained a human form due to being inside the protagonist of Persona 3 for 10 years, however he originally appeared in the form of a child.
    • As stated above, in the English versions of Persona 4, Teddie's dialogue is full of bear puns. The ultimate form of the Star Arcana, Teddie's Arcana, is Helel, the Light "Bear"er.
    • Teddie's Bear Claw follow-up attack is likely a reference to Bear Claw user Warsman's signature Screwdriver technique from the manga series Kinnikuman. Teddie's technique was renamed Bear Screw in Persona 4 Arena.
    • Teddie, Shadow Labrys and Metis (though she is only theorized to be a Shadow) are one of the few Shadows that have developed egos and wield Personas.
    • It is mentioned in Persona Q and shown in Persona 4 Arena that after leaving the TV World, he takes residence in Yosuke's closet which includes a bed and some pieces of human clothing.
    • Teddie's Personas have an appearance of metallic ball-shaped machines. This correlates with Teddie's own body being round and artificially made.
    • Though subtle, Teddie's voice actually changes when he is in his human form. It isn't as excitable and is smoother than his regular voice. However, he goes back to his original voice every now and then, especially when in his bear suit.
    • Morgana in Persona 5 can wear a Teddie outfit as DLC.
    • Teddie appears in Persona 5 as a central part of the festive decoration called a Kumade (熊手*)?. It is is bought by Haru Okumura for the protagonist to decorate his room with after he assists her at the Tori no Ichi Festival.
    • Teddie makes numerous cameos throughout Atlus' game Catherine: as a stuffed animal, on a poster, on a bottle of "Bear Beer" and more.
    • Teddie says "bear" 65 times in Persona 4 The Animation.
    • In Persona 4 Golden, due to Teddie's unknown age, he is unable to obtain a license to obtain a scooter to ride to the beach; he instead uses roller blades while in his bear suit.

    Persona 4 Arena[]


    Gamers! E2 Playing Persona 4

    Persona 4 Arena Ultimax in Gamers!.

    • The Bear Screw attack is based on his Bear Claw follow up attack in the original Persona 4.
    • In his Fake Bear R-Action, Teddie can still deflate his suit somehow, even long after gaining a human form.
    • After landing Teddie's Kamooey Kablooey (Kamu Kamu Rocket, in Japanese version), Kintoki-Douji descends with an afro on top of its head, referencing Faust's instant kill from Guilty Gear X where he blows both his opponent and himself up with a bomb, giving them both afros.
    • There is a cutscene that shows Teddie flexing his muscles which is also his All-Out Attack cut-in image in Persona 4 Golden.
    • When Teddie wins a match in Persona 4 Arena, the announcer will say "Kuma wins!" on the English voice setting.
    • Both Chie and Teddie are the only characters to not retain any of their offensive spells in their movesets; in Teddie's case, all of his attacks are original save for his followup attack.
    • Teddie's auto-combo has him finish with multiple punches while growing large eyebrows. This is a reference to the anime and manga series "Fist of the North Star." Arc System Works also did a fighting game adaptation of the series.
    • In the second episode of the 2017 anime series Gamers!, the characters Keita Amano and Tasuku Uehara play the arcade version of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Tasuku's Teddie defeat's Keita's Yu Narukami, without losing any HP.

    Persona 4: Dancing All Night[]

    • Teddie, along with Nanako, has two different artworks: one is his default Teddie Costume, and the other is his human form.
