* FlatCharacter: In the anime's first season, she has the least focus and the least development of all five girls--including Azusa, who shows up halfway through. Mugi's only real standout traits are "FishOutOfWater who is AshamedToBeRich" and "thoughtfully brought sweets for everyone", with an occasional bit of her manga-centric Yuri ShippingGoggles. A large part of this is because she never pairs off with anybody. Unlike Ritsu and Mio (who have each other) and Yui (who has Nokoda, Ui, and Asuza to bounce off of), Mugi rarely appears outside of ensemble scenes.

beach]], and when she's not she's usually wearing [[ForeheadOfDoom her hair]] as if she has it on.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Lazy, irresponsible, sarcastic and kind of a bully, but not a bad person. This is best shown when Mugi says that she's a kind person who's determined to make her friends happy, and that she would be popular with the girls if she were a guy; Ritsu doesn't take this compliment well and hits her, which in all fairness was what [[ItMakesSenseInContext Mugi wanted all along]].

* GagCensor: Her infamous PantyShot is represented with a striped rice bowl in the anime.

* BoyishShortHair: During the trip to Kyoto, she wonders if growing her hair out will make her more feminine.



* GenderFlipped: Of the goofy, spontaneous and fun-loving Music/RingoStarr.
** Later on in the college arc, she suffers through some insecurities over not being all that talented on her instrument as compared to the rest of the band, who were all getting noticeably better (punctuated by Yui's unnatural rise in ability over the time they've spent in college). This was something Mio helped her through, [[http://www.nytimes.com/2003/12/07/style/dear-ringo-having-a-great-time-wish-you-were-here.html just like a certain, famous post-card]].

Music/RingoStarr. Unfortunately for her, this also comes with being left out of the spotlight, much like how Starr was regarded as the least important member of the Fab Four (though she ultimately gets over it).

* NiceGirl: Yui's most noble quality is her ability to go above and beyond the distance for the people that she loves; notable examples include letting the rest of Hokago Tea Time have their fairly-earned share of the part-time-job money meant for her guitar, rehearsing for a musical festival competition to win a trip for the grandma who has been kind to her since childhood in spite of a looming midterm exam (and '''acing''' the test, no less), not to mention writing '''two''' sincere and heartfelt songs to celebrate her love and gratitude for the most precious people in her life, "U and I" for her sister Ui, and "We Met A Wonderful Angel" to give courage to Azusa.



* NiceGirl

to:

* NiceGirlNiceGirl: Like Yui, Mugi is willing to go beyond the distance to create warm and happy memories with her friends, as to her there is nothing more precious than the people that she loves; being already ludicrously rich, she is more than able (and willing) to do so.
