Aoyama eventually starts calling her by her first name, but while she hopes to eventually do the same with him, she doesn't get around to doing so ([[DubInducedPlothole In the dub, they're always on a first name basis]]).
* FirstKiss: In the manga, an AccidentalKiss with Aoyama. In the anime, it's stolen by Quiche.
* GenerationXerox: In one of the fillers, her [[OverprotectiveDad father]], Shintaro disapproves of Aoyama, and challenges him to a kendo match until she intervenes. He had to go through the same thing with his wife Sakura's father, and Sakura responded similarly.
* GirlishPigtails

* SpeaksFluentAnimal: She's shown in at least one episode to be able to converse with cats.

In a later episode, it's revealed that she can apparently also talk to birds and dogs when she's in her cat form.
* StrawberryShorthand
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Looks like her mother, Sakura.

Lastly, she was the only one who could swim in water for long due to having the DNA of a Finless Porpoise.

* ShipperOnDeck: Ships Ichigo and Aoyama.
* TheSmartGirl
* StatuesqueStunner: Stands at roughly 5' 9". Amazing, considering at her age, she rivals Sakaki from Manga/AzumangaDaioh, though her height isn't played for [[HugeSchoolgirl awkwardness]]. Even in the dub, where [[CulturalTranslation she is said to be 6' 1"]].
