If the player appeases the alien, they get its Triple Triad card. Completing the PuPu sidequest in the Steam version earns the player the achievement UFO.

PuPu is one of Lulu's dolls, appearing, among others, as the Space Master weapon. For a weapon to have the model of PuPu, it requires at least one of the following auto-abilities: Double or Triple Overdrive, Double or Triple AP, or Gillionaire, or all four Strength or Magic enhancing bonuses (+3%, +5%, +10%, and +20%).
In the International and HD Remaster versions, PuPus make actual appearances in the Fiend Tales endings. In the Iron Giant, a Pupu used a robotic replica of an Iron Giant to interact with Spirans before departing once fulfilling its mission. Another PuPu appears in the Concherer ending, able to speak the Spiran common tongue and was trapped in the shell of a Concherer before using the salt water to melt it away so it can depart Spira.
On several signs in Palumpolum and Eden, black silhouettes of PuPu are present. The same silhouette is visible on a drink can, implying PuPu is a mascot for a company. The can reads "GINGER" in Cocoon script.

PuPu reappears in Final Fantasy XIII-2 as a downloadable content monster. They appear in numbers and bring their UFO into battle with them. When recruited into the Paradigm Pack PuPu is a Medic. They also have the distinction of being the only enemies in Final Fantasy XIII-2 that are able to drop Elixirs at all, albeit their drop chances are very low.
As with Final Fantasy XIII, black silhouettes of PuPu are still present, but only in Academia.
PuPu and its UFO can be seen on the bridge of the submarine Jane as part of the submarine's control hub at the center of the room.

- —Dissidia Final Fantasy Summon Compendium
PuPu is a summon in Dissidia. When summoned, it uses Accelerator, which halves the summoner's Bravery, but repeatedly increases it by 60 during a certain period of time. PuPu can be obtained as a stage bonus from the Destiny Odyssey VIII storyline. The effect of Accelerator is duplicated with Chaos's Chaotic Deluge summon, which halves Chaos's Bravery but increases it by 99 over a long period of time.
The Museum mentions "PuPu" refers not just to a single creature, but an entire race, which may have earned their name from the sound made when they walk.
PuPu returns as a summonstone with the same function as in Dissidia. It can be purchased from the Cornelian Moogle Shop for 50 KP. This summonstone is unlocked at the shop as a limited offer after earning 710 KP total.
PuPu appears in this game as an enemy.
