* Four of the five main characters of ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' are actually infused with the DNA of an [[PantheraAwesome Irimote]] [[http://edgeofthebush.ca/zt1/images/PK%20Cat%20Pack/Iriomote%20Cat.jpg cat]], an [[PollyWantsAMicrophone Ultramarine]] [[http://www.parrots.org/images/parrotgallery/UltramarineLory/wpt3023_medium.jpg Lorikeet]], a [[HeroicDolphin Finless]] [[http://www.cms.int/reports/small_cetaceans/data/N_phocaenoides/n.phocaenoides.jpg Porpoise]], and a [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys Golden Lion]] [[http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/154/7/e/golden_lion_tamarin_4_by_silkenwinds-d5263dj.jpg Tamarin]] respectively. The idea is that, as these are all endangered species, their desire to continue living is what gives the girls [[MagicalGirl their powers]]. The fifth is the somewhat more common wolf.[[note]]However, both species of wolf that were native to Japan are extinct.[[/note]] Also, a character introduced for the video game gets her powers from the DNA of a Humboldt Penguin.
