"It was the only thing stronger then magic; love." - SinoThis page is dedicated to the pairing of Puss in Boots and Dulcinea.
- In episode 78, 'Having a writ and moving on' Puss and Dulcinea are believed to have become a couple.
- It is still unknown what happens to Dulcinea due to the fact that the series is set before the movie.
From the moment Puss met her, he developed an attraction to her. He saw her as a beautiful woman out of her element while she was shopping at the Thieves' Market. He immediately helped her when she was being harassed by bandits. He even followed her to ensure she was safe. He often compliments her, calling her beautiful and doing kind gestures for her. While he is a self proclaimed 'ladies man' and a flirt, he seems to have strong feelings for Dulcinea, often trying to protect her and often valuing her opinion over most others.
Dulcinea's View of Puss Edit
Dulcinea was thankful to Puss for saving her and immediately befriended him. Like with Puss, it seemed she quickly developed feelings for him as she was shy when she put her hands over his arm. While she was able to tell he was narcissistic, self centered, and a bit of a rogue, she knew he had a good heart and managed to convince him to take responsibility for his part in accidentally destroying the barrier surrounding San Lorenzo. Throughout the series, she tries to teach him patience and to use brain over brawn, which he takes to heart. She enjoys spending time with him and has shown throughout the series that she fears that day he may leave San Lorenzo to continue his adventures. She also wishes to know more about him and his past. It is evident she is in love with him, but has yet to act on those feelings. In season 5, they became each others Crispintine (San Lorenzo's Valentine).
