— Moe upon entering Cooler Heads

Moe (Japanese: クマノ Kumano) is a clownfish who lives in the hair of Annie. He runs the hat shop Cooler Heads alongside Annie, brashly critiquing players based on their rank and style.[1]

Personality and traits

Moe acts hostile towards the Inklings, insulting them at every single opportunity. Though he acts tough, he stubbornly refuses to leave Annie's head. Despite his tough talk, he never does anything on his own.[2][3] This is partially represented by their manner of speaking: Annie always speaks first, with Moe popping up afterwards with a smart remark.

In the nineteenth Sunken Scroll, it is hinted that Moe is actually manipulating Annie. It states, "Is the big fluffy one providing shelter for the little fishy one, or is the little fishy one manipulating the big fluffy one? We may never know... "
