"You may recognize our next fighter from her performances on this very street corner. It's Lola Pop! Watch out, folks—this gal doesn't clown around. She's spent years traveling the world, honing her craft. But if she wins this grand prix, she'll put down some roots and use the winnings to start her own circus!"

Lola Pop is a playable fighter in ARMS, released in the Version 3.0.0 update on 2017-09-13.[1] Her fighting style is based on her ability to inflate herself like a balloon.


Lola Pop appears mostly human except for her spiraled irises, her candy-like ARMS and orange and red lollipop-style hair. She wears yellow overalls with a stripe pattern on the left leg and a polka dot pattern on the right leg, a clown nose, a blue headband, purple ball-shaped earrings, a yellow mask that covers the top half of her face, a blue athletic shirt with her logo on it, and red sneakers shaped like oversized clown shoes. While she is inflated, Lola is as round as a ball, her legs enveloped so that only her shoes are exposed.


"This sweet-dreamin' clown has traveled the world as a street performer. With her well-honed clowning skills, she's developed crowd-pleasing maneuvers that confuse and confound opponents! She hopes to one day open a circus of her very own, and the prize money from winning the Grand Prix could make those dreams come true!"
Official description


Lola Pop is able to inflate her body while shielding, which appears to provide added defense[2] and allow her to slowly move around the stage while blocking. While inflated, she can immediately cancel into a fast dash or high jump. She can also inflate in the air while holding dash, causing her to shield herself for a short moment before dropping quickly and bouncing on the ground. She can chain these bounces to change position while retaining charge. This also helps her keep a defensive position while moving, because Lola cannot move from side to side when guarding normally.


The mobility options when shielding give Lola Pop unique ways of pressuring, retreating, and mixing up opponents to create openings. Her shield-dashes and bounces provide a wide variety of options, that though each individually punishable, can answer any choice from the opponents.

She is especially dangerous at the mid-range where her massive option pool means she can threaten in ways completely unique to her. Unpredictability is key to success with the Candy Clown.

ARM Recommendations

She works well with ARMS that keep opponents at a distance, and on the back foot with as few options as possible. There, she can almost overwhelm opponents with the sheer volume of possible moves she can make, all of which require different reads and punishes. Some examples are:

Grand Prix Ending


  • Lola Pop was first teased by the official ARMS twitter account in August 2017.[3] Her full reveal came with a trailer on August 22nd during Gamescom 2017.[4]
  • She is the only character who has the ability to move while blocking.
  • She is one of two characters able to block in the air; the other being Dr. Coyle.
  • Her name is a play on "lollipop."
  • There is an implied rivalry between Biff and Lola, as they each have bakeries right next to each other, and one of her promotional art photos shows Biff glaring at her while she performs in front of her bakery. However, Lola appears to respect Biff, as his logo is used for her Biffler. Biff also happily helps Lola Pop with a performance in one piece of art, indicating that their relationship might not be quite so hostile.
  • As coulrophobia (the fear of clowns) is effectively non-existent in Japan, the development team was surprised to receive negative feedback on Lola Pop's concept art from Nintendo of America, stating that some of the employees found her appearance to be a little scary. This amused Kosuke Yabuki, who felt that he "learned a weak point of Americans" after the exchange.[5]
