The Idols in School Idol Festival are categorized into three classes.

Smile- can be distinguished by the red background around the idol.

Cool - can be distinguished by the blue background around the idol.

Pure - can be distinguished by the green background around the idol.


The idols you can get in-game have abilities/skills that may help change the tide between getting a "B" and an "A" Rank on songs.

There are two types of abilities.

  • Appeal - this is an ability that's triggered by certain conditions.
  • Center Skill - this is a passive ability that differs depending on the idol.

Let's take for example Yazawa Nico she has "Rhythmical Charm" as an appeal.

her appeals conditions are:

For every 17 hit combo string, there is a 36% chance of increasing player's score by 200 points. (Level 1)

it's pretty self-explanatory.

As for her Center skill it's "Smile Power".

Increases Smile points by a bit.

This tells us that whenever Nico's is the center she gives us extra smile points to the total smile points.
