Mary is one of the characters from Pop'n Music. Mary first appeared in the first release of Pop'n Music as the third playable character in the game. Since then she has continued to play as a playable character with rare appearances as a game level character.


Mary is both a close friend and rival with Judy and often spends her time dancing with or against her. While Judy is perky and upbeat, Mary acts mysterious about her personal life but she is well known and often complimented for her great dancing skills. But as a result she's also become very prideful in herself. She still has a lot to do, but with Judy she can work as a dancer while having fun too!

Lately Mary has become very happy to have invented a special dance move for the Dance program that she, Judy and Aya are in but lately she finds herself becoming nervous since a lot of new dancers have begun to show up. Which means more people are vying for the spot as number one dancer!
