Candy (CANDY) is a witch that appears as a boss in Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story: Magia Record. She had a cameo appearance in Magia Record Episode 1 as a plush toy that Iroha owns before later making her debut in Magia Record Episode 4. She also appears in the twelfth chapter of the Magia Record manga.
The Bunny Eared Witch. Her nature is a princess. This Witch collects things from inside her Labyrinth. She regards herself as the personification of cuteness, and loves to be praised for her appearance and accessories. For this reason, her attacks can be avoided by complimenting her on her looks. However, if she senses even the slightest negativity, she will lose her temper and throw a tantrum, so one needs to be extra careful when flattering her. Because of her fickle nature, even if she looks like she is in a good mood, one should not let their guard down, as she is known to bite and impale things with spears.
Minions of the Bunny Eared Witch. Their role is decorator. In order to keep their Witch happy, these Familiars are always looking for cute things to decorate her with. When they do find something nice, they bring it to her. When a Familiar fails to satisfy her, she slices it open, so their lives are always on the line. One must not panic when one runs into this familiar. If one simply throws something pretty at it, like wrapping paper, it will take it and run back to its Witch.
