Poini is a surprisingly young girl with an equally surprising intelligence. Like Esmeralda, she's a reference to Gradius Gaiden, piloting Jade Knight's partner ship, Falchion β. Also like Esmeralda, Poini is in Diol's class at St. Gradius, as a third year student in spite of her age. She's voiced by Yuuko Gotoo.

Poini's Auto-Aim weapon has been downgraded to just being a normal Double that aims its angled shot when moving. The Gravity Bullet is still quite powerful (and has received a boost post-balance patch) and can destroy Cores in seconds. Her Rolling Options allows the player a wider range of fire, but still not as wide as is seen from Arnval's Formation Options and Tita's riding core Wide Options. Poini's Platonic Break is Gravity Eraser, and it can kill most bosses in just seconds when positioned correctly; this is probably the strongest charged shot in the game, it's probably based from the Black Hole Bomb in Darius Gaiden.

Trivia

  • Esmeralda and Poini Coon's DLC BGMs are based from Gradius Gaiden, remixing the most famous themes like "Snowfield", "Black Hole", "Crystal Cage"; but also features themes from Falsion (for Poini) like "First Space Fight" or "Narrow Road".
  • Her DLC costume is an apron dress, a form of traditional clothing from her hometown of Renga Village on planet Gradius based from the video game Esper Dream.
  • The exclusive missile weapon that comes with this costume is the Black Hole Bomb. It works similarly to the Spread Bomb, except the trajectory is closer to the ship, the gravity wells are somewhat smaller than the Spread Bomb explosions, and they stick around marginally longer.
  • Her name in the English release is spelled "Poini Kune". This is most likely because "Coon" is a racial slur, which Konami of Japan likely did not know when she was designed and named.
