Silvervine Candy in Kokonoe's laboratory

Silvervine Candy, also spelled Silver Vine, is a brand of lollipop candy in the BlazBlue world. Kokonoe is always seen eating them.

Information

Silvervine is first mentioned in Taokaka's Help Me!! Professor Kokonoe segment, where Kokonoe gives it to the young Kaka. Tao demonstrates: intelligence; sophisticated language; regret for her actions; and breaks the fourth wall. The effect is only temporary, and Kokonoe vows to destroy the confectionery.[1] This segment is non-canon.

Iron Tager, when describing Kokonoe to Noel Vermillion, states that the scientist is addicted to silvervine.[2] Kokonoe's official profiles state that the only reason that she is able to skip sleeping is thanks to silvervine as it gives her the strength to continue researching for days at a time.[3][4][5]

In her official artworks, Kokonoe is seen with blue silvervine, but in gameplay, is seen with an orange variant instead.

Etymology

Silver vine, binomial name actinidia polygama, is a plant found in Japan and China that has a strong effect on cats, giving them a euphoric response similar to catnip, with some evidence suggesting that the response is stronger.[6]
