* StrawberryShorthand
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Looks like her mother, Sakura.

* BlindWithoutEm: Only made clear in the anime, and only when untransformed. Mew Lettuce goes around [[TheGlassesComeOff without glasses]] all the time.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Zacro Fujiwara in the Kodansha translation.

* SugarAndIcePersonality: Appears highly aloof at first glance, but shows a sweeter side around Minto and Ichigo.
