The Mercedes-Puck Relationship, commonly known as Puckcedes, is the brief relationship between Mercedes Jones and Noah Puckerman. They dated in the Season One episode, Laryngitis, after Puck decides to target a newly-popular Mercedes as his next girlfriend to increase his social status after losing his mohawk and being thrown in the dumpster. Despite a warning from Quinn about Puck's promiscuous tendencies and a fight with Santana, she continues to succumb to Puck's charms after they sing Lady Is a Tramp together. His plan is in fact successful until they subsequently break up in the same episode because Mercedes witnesses Puck bullying the other students again and she disliked it.


Before Puck and Mercedes meet, Mercedes is just another victim of his bullying. He ends up joining the Glee Club with Finn, Mike, and Matt. He is also paired up with Mercedes to sing a ballad in the episode Ballad. During rehearsal, he tells her that he is the father of Quinn's baby, and she ends up telling the rest of the Glee Club, excluding Rachel and Finn.

Later on, Puck has to have his mohawk shaved because his mother finds a mole on his head, and he becomes bullied by nerds, and is given a taste of his own medicine when they throw him in a dumpster. He sees that Mercedes has become popular by joining the Cheerios, and he wants her to be his girlfriend. He fails by using pick-up lines and history about African-Americans and Jews, but later wins her over by singing Lady Is a Tramp with her. They date, which makes Puck's ex-girlfriend and lover, Santana, extremely jealous. They fight over him while Quinn, Puck's other ex-girlfriend, wants Mercedes to date him. Once Puck becomes popular again, he begins bullying the nerds and flirting with other girls again, and Mercedes ends up quitting the Cheerios and breaking it off with him.


They get paired up to be ballad partners. Mercedes tells him that they all want to sing Lean on Me to Finn and Quinn, but Puck says no. Mercedes doesn't understand this, and Puck tells Mercedes that he is the father of Quinn's baby, not Finn. Mercedes defends Quinn, and tells him to leave her alone because Quinn chose Finn to be the father. She eventually tells everyone in the Glee Club, besides Rachel and Finn. (Ballad)
