Mallo is the protagonist of the Pushmo series.
Mallo is a member of an unnamed blob-like species, which appears to be derived from cats. He is red with a white/peach face. The top of his head is formed like a traditional Sumo hair do. He wears yellow gloves and a blue mawashi (Sumo Belt).
Mallo is never heard speaking. As such, not much of his personality is known, however, he is shown to be courageous and strong. In Pushmo, a child named Corin, described by Papa Blox as "Quite a troublemaker", presses all the Reset Switches in Pushmo Park, trapping the children who were playing inside. Mallo volunteered by climbing to the top of all of the Pushmo to rescue them.
In Crashmo, Mallo moves to visit Papa Blox to see his new Crashmo Park. Papa blox's grandniece, Poppy, also comes to see the park and her great uncle. When Mallo introduces himself by making a Sumo stomp, he scares off all of Poppy's birds she traveled with on her Bird Balloon (A Hot-Air Balloon lifted by birds perched on a Balloon-shaped set of bars.). They all fly onto the park's Crashmo. Mallo then sets out to save the birds and help Poppy get back home.
Papa Blox's Description
Don't tell me you've forgotten yourself! Why, you're Mallo! You're a strong lad with a good heart. You remind me of myself in my youth! You're a bit forgetful, though, eh?

- Mallo's name is a play on Sumo, a Japanese activity to try and push your opponent out of the arena. This could explain how the idea of Mallo pushing blocks came to be. Sumo Wrestlers try to gain weight to become harder to be pushed, which can explain Mallo's gelatinous form.
