In a huge subversion, however, Dejiko's personality turned out to be the complete opposite of the cutesy-innocent moe girl she appears to be. She does her best to appear sweet, but when provoked (and it doesn't take much) she can be vain, petty, argumentative, selfish, and downright violent. She often takes out her frustrations by physically abusing her guardian, a floating sphere named Gema, or firing eyebeams at those who annoy her. She does have a good heart deep down, though, and the show's borderline-surreal sense of humor [[{{rule of funny}} plays her anti-social tendencies for laughs]], so somehow Dejiko manages to be endearing despite it all.

* AlternateContinuity: There are several continuities that originated when the franchise started to branch out. The original series is connected with ''Panyo Panyo'' (serving as prequel, as well serving as such for ''Di Gi Charat Nyo''). ''Nyo'' is a retelling of the original series without the obvious ''Gamers'' chain store setup (nor side-characters). ''Winter Garden'' is set in an alternate future continuity from the other series.

* EasyImpersonation: In one episode of the original series, Dejiko is accused of various misdeeds by the other characters. Sure, Dejiko is mean spirited at times, so that's one of the reasons of why no one believes her to be innocent. When attempting to bribe them with candy, it also happens to draw out the attention of her imitator, which is a blob with a similar cat hat as hers.



* FacelessMasses

* FacelessMassesFacelessMasses: The minor characters in the original series are portrayed as literal finger puppets, even when they are in the foreground.

* LastNameBasis: Dejiko refers to Rabi~en~Rose as "Usada" (despite repeated times she denies to be called as that, she eventually gives up).
