* CuteClumsyGirl: In ''Judgment'', she has a cutesy tendency to trip; her Hyper attack involves her tripping at the last moment, allowing an empowered Osca to beat up the enemy for her, while two of her special attacks can randomly fail due to this. This aspect is considered a ScrappyMechanic, because it weakens her attack and gives opponents an advantage to press.
