Pistachio Maplewood[a] is a party member of the canin race in Magical Vacation who uses wood magic, and is a student at Will-o'-Wisp Academy. He is a kind yet cowardly boy who suffers academically and can never seem to keep up.
Party member[edit | edit source]
Pistachio is the first classmate to be recruited by the protagonist, joining before the fight against Demice in Mimolette Forest. His initial levels are level 1 and magic level 2.
His element is wood, represented by the spirit Sticky. Its spells, although weaker than other elements, can make enemies more vulnerable to magic damage by debuffing spirit.
Level 1 stats[edit | edit source]
From levels 1 through 39, Pistachio only earns 1 bonus stat point when leveling up, and it always goes into agility.
Level 39 stats[edit | edit source]
After level 39, Pistachio's stat allocation bias changes. He gets 4 bonus stat points for each level-up, and every stat (except MP%, which remains unaltered) has a 20% chance to be assigned a point.
Max stats[edit | edit source]
These totals may vary based on stat allocation bias.
Attacks[edit | edit source]
|Call Sticky||Acorn||Walnut||Clear Furry||Pinecone||Double Sticky||Chestnut|
Special power[edit | edit source]
Pistachio's special power lets him retrieve three gummy frogs when drinking from an HP pot for the first time. Frogs obtained this way will not count towards the report card, thereby not affecting the appearance of dark spirits or the rejection of love spirits. The frogs' color is determined by the report card grade.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
Pistachio is very worrisome and seems to have an inferiority complex. He constantly puts himself down, openly frets about his grades, and is deeply concerned over the well-being of others. He is also known for his cowardly nature and tendency to panic in the face of danger. Despite his disappointment with himself, Pistachio takes pride in his fluffy ears and tail. In the original Japanese version of Magical Vacation, he ends most of his sentences with a verbal tic, っぴ ppi, and his dialogue is written in messy hiragana when he feels discouraged or excited. He also speaks informally, using slang words such as オイラ oira instead of 俺は ore wa (I/myself).
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Pistachio's eyes are navy blue, and his fur is brown and scruffy. Since he cannot afford a hat, Pistachio wears a pair of green pants with crosses stitched along the waistband. His baggy robes are of the same color and also have identical stitching on the sleeves' cuffs. Tied around his neck is a red scarf with yellow polka dots, and he wears big green shoes.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Early life[edit | edit source]
Pistachio came from a poor family, and while he was not given the most fortunate life, he had a surprising degree of infamy back in his hometown. He became popular for his weak psychic powers and gift of wood magic. Some of his abilities included bending spoons with his mind, and reading unopened envelopes. Word of his impressive abilities eventually reached Biscotti, who went out to find and meet Pistachio. The townspeople bid farewell to Pistachio as he and Biscotti left for Will-o'-Wisp Academy, throwing a celebratory party in his name. Unfortunately, Pistachio’s time as Will-o’-Wisp started off less than ideal. His academic and practical skills were subpar, and he did not stand out as much as he did back home. Once Pistachio’s parents learned of their son’s stressful time at the academy, they started to believe that him coming home and working for the family trade would be a better solution.

Return to the Kingdom[edit | edit source]
Pistachio continued to study hard, and after earning a doctorate from the magic academy, wrote several books to propagated magic far beyond the continent.
Magical Starsign[edit | edit source]
Although he does not make a physical appearance in Magical Starsign, Pistachio is mentioned to be a professor at Will-o'-Wisp Academy by some students in his class, all of whom were given detention by him. The students blamed their detentions on Professor Pistachio for having a strict and unfair teaching style. In the Japanese version, a student named Jonesy commented on his annoying "ppi" tic and cowardly nature as seen in Magical Vacation. In English, however, this was changed to him having an evil laugh. His name was brought up again by a boy named Diecast in Chocomilk Caves on the planet Shadra. According to Diecast, Pistachio and many others from Kovomaka were wizards of legend, which earned it the title of "the magic planet".
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- His name comes from 'pistachio', drupes encased in hard white seeds.
- He is an avid manga reader.
- Donuts are his favorite food.
- By level 999, Pistachio has the highest average stats of every party member.
