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 Mary Sue.
  • Boring Invincible Hero: A major complaint about the show is that Pucca is so ridiculously powerful that there's almost no tension due to how easily she can resolve a situation.
  • Designated Heroine: Pucca.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Pucca has destroyed public property, invaded personal spaces, injured people who weren't causing her any harm and invades in Garu's life... all in the name of "funny love". Hell, she once beat up Cupid solely for not having an arrow he can use on Garu.
  • 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, embarrased, 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.
  • Mary Sue: Pucca, Pucca, Pucca
    • God-Mode Sue: She does everything effortlessly, always gets her way, (Getting a year named for her in one instance), and is basically unbeatable. And she will sometimes have a new power out of nowhere when it suits the plot.
      • A particularly blatant example is the "chicken pox" episode, a disease that literally makes you act like a chicken. Like real chicken pox, it's incredibly contagious, but unlike real chicken pox, it spreads when the pox-spots themselves leap from person to person. Everyone, even Garu and Santa Claus, is infected...and then Pucca shows up. The pox-spots try to infect her...and fail. Just like that.
    • Jerk Sue: She is adored almost unconditionally, and whoever dares object to her is swiftly "put in their place" whether they're right or wrong. She also gets away with LOTS of shit that wouldn't be tolerated if done with other characters.
  • 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.
