YMMV / Pucca

  • Base Breaker: Pucca is generally seen as a cute and funny character, but many hate her for being a Stalker with a Crush.
  • Designated Heroine: Pucca.
  • Earworm: "PUUUUCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA LOVES GAAAARUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU..."
  • Foe Yay/Ho Yay: In the episode "Stuck on Goo" Garu and his enemy Tobe end up stuck together via a mishap with melted candy canes. They end up having to share a bed in one scene, in which Tobe accidently touches Garu's hand, he then jerks away, embarrassed, and says they "will never speak of this again." Later as the two learn to get along, Tobe suggests they return to "Our home" (Garu's house) in a loving manner as they look at each other warmly.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The series is huge in South America.
  • Jerkass Woobie:
    • Ring-Ring.
    • Tobe. It's hinted that he just wants to fight for fun with Garu (even Garu himself wants to), but Pucca always have to interrupt their game by kicking him away.
  • Moral Dissonance: "Feud Fight". Apparently Pucca crying over never getting her favorite meal is what makes the chefs get over their feud and make noodles again... not that the village has become a depressing, zombie filled world without their cooking.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Garu is suggested to have a Dark and Troubled Past and is in a constant struggle to avenge his family, and it's implied Tobe was the cause of it, explaining why they're constantly fighting each other. Of course, being a comedy series, this is only referenced in passing.
  • Urban Legend of Zelda: There was a pretty popular myth that an unreleased episode featured Garu's younger brother Gura coming to Sooga. The potential Fanfic Fuel made many latch onto the idea to the point where Gura, who doesn't actually exist, has plenty of fan art.
  • The Woobie:
    • Garu, Oh, Garu. He never gets sympathy from anyone when it comes to being chased and mentally harassed by Pucca. In fact, no one even seems to be aware of how ridiculous Pucca can be besides him.
    • Dada trumps Garu in this. He's mocked by the village for suggesting a fork when all of the chopsticks are gone. He's constantly ridiculed and disrespected by the chefs. His crush on Ring Ring is clearly unreciprocated. And every time something good happens for him (Janitaurus not withstanding), he goes back to being the butt of the joke.
