There are many toys lurking around at the Playtime Co factory. One of the more perplexing happens to be Poppy Playtime’s Kissy Missy. The reason for our confusion surrounding the character is that she appears to help you, but the other toys are hellbent on killing you. So in this guide, we dive into who Kissy Missy is, her personality, how she might play an important role in later chapters, and what the relationship between Kissy Missy and Huggy Wuggy is.

Who is Poppy Playtime’s Kissy Missy?

Kissy Missy is one of the toys from Playtime Co, and she’s the other half of Huggy Wuggy (the names probably give that away). It’s in 1985 that she first hits the market, just one year after Huggy Wuggy. Besides being a Playtime Co mascot, we don’t know too much about her.

Kissy Missy and Huggy Wuggy

As we mentioned, Kissy Missy and Huggy Wuggy are a pair. We’re yet to see them interact, and that’s highly unlikely given the demise of the Wugster in a tight squeeze, but since Playtime Co. creates Kissy Missy to be Huggy Wuggy’s other half, it’s safe to assume that there’s a relationship between the two toys. We’d go so far as to say these two likely had a relationship while they were still human. We have to admit, in toy form, one certainly seems more terrifying than the other.

What is Poppy Playtime Kissy Missy’s role in the story?

Kissy Missy shows up briefly to help you out in Chapter 2 as she pulls a lever that raises the gate that previously blocked your way forward (admittedly, we’re unsure how helpful this is considering how much Mommy Long Legs wants to kill us, but we’ll take what we can get in this hell hole). She disappears by the time the gate rises enough for you to get through. From this act, it appears as though she’s an ally. But make no mistake, Playtime Co experimented on her, too, so she’s organic and can think for herself. However, it’s evident that she’s still good at heart, or at least we think she is.

From here on out, you’re entering spoiler territory for Chapter 3. Following her disappearance after aiding us in A Fly in a Web, Kissy Missy reappears in Chapter 3, and, despite her initially throwing you to the floor after you first see her in Playcare, more specifically, in Home Sweet Home, it’s clear that she really is one of the good toys, as she lets you go after Poppy tells her that you’re “one of the good ones.”

Kissy Missy then places Poppy on her shoulder, showing a clear friendship between the two, and we hope she now loves us, too. Come the end of the chapter, Kissy Missy’s future is hanging in the balance, as it sounds like another evil toy, or the Prototype himself, goes after her after she pulls the lever to allow ourselves and Poppy to go down an elevator. Look, we’re just going to say it, there was enough room on that elevator for her to come with us.

Poppy, clearly distraught at the thought of losing her friend, overrides the elevator, leading us back up – we’re coming for you, Kissy Missy!

Poppy Playtime Kissy Missy’s personality

We don’t know a great deal about Kissy Missy due to her very brief appearance. However, we know that Huggy Wuggy is so named as he is meant to hug children, so if we interpret her name in a similar fashion, Kissy Missy probably kisses children. From that, we can deduce that she likely has a kind, warm, and gentle personality. The fact that she helps us in Poppy Playtime Chapter 2 also gives us some hope that she remains a loving soul.

Now that we’ve seen her in Deep Sleep, we can say that she’s a good person (well, toy) who wants to do what’s right, protecting her friends at all costs. The scene in which she holds a picture of a girl in the orphanage shows that she likely remembers life before this quite vividly, reminiscing on what was once her happy life.

Poppy Playtime Kissy Missy appearances

For now, she’s only present in Poppy Playtime Chapter 2, though you can see her in Chapter 1 through posters, and we know she’s due another appearance in Deep Sleep.

Is Kissy Missy in Poppy Playtime Chapter 3?

Yes, Kissy Missy is in Chapter 3, and the ending of the chapter certainly gives us reason to believe this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Huggy Wuggy’s better half. If you want to see how Poppy Playtime’s CatNap and Poppy Playtime’s DogDay fit into this world, check out our guides on them – just remember, they’re Chapter 3 characters, so they may have spoilers.

Is Kissy Missy dead?

Such a morbid question, but following the conclusion of Deep Sleep, it’s certainly a fair thing to ask. Now, if you ask us, we don’t think Kissy Missy is dead; in our minds, she’s too big a character to kill off-screen, but that’s not to say she isn’t in peril. We strongly suspect that the big bad of Poppy Playtime Chapter 4, or even the Prototype himself, has kidnapped her and that we’re likely off on a rescue mission in the next chapter.

At least, that’s what we’re telling ourselves. We hate the idea of Kissy Missy being dead and will do everything we can to save her. But if we have to avenge her, we shall do so with pure rage.

Will Kissy Missy be in Poppy Playtime Chapter 4?

Regardless of what theory you buy into, or, in our case, hope for, it seems almost certain that Kissy Missy will return in Poppy Playtime Chapter 4.
