YMMV: Tokyo Mew Mew

  • Americans Hate Tingle: Aoyama Masaya, poster boy for Die for Our Ship, gets none of that in Japan.
  • Complete Monster: Deep Blue, in the anime, is cold, extremely cruel and is willing to kill anyone who gets in his way with no remorse whatsoever, nor does he share their feelings towards Ichigo, nor does he hesitate to hurt her or any of the other Mew Mews, despite Ichigo's refusal to fight against him. He also kills Quiche for getting in his way as a sacrifice for protection of Ichigo, and unleashes beams that threaten to murder the other Mew Mews until Pie sacrifices himself to save them.
  • Creator's Pet: Berii.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Quiche. Many fans seemed to forget that his "OMG TWU WUB" for Ichigo is Stalker with a Crush played dead straight, complete with "I'll kill you if I can't have you" and "I'll kill him just because you like him better than me" moments.
    • Even if Deep Blue is a Complete Monster, fans have even bought him leather pants as well. It may have to do with the manga version apparently intending to help the aliens.
  • Fan Nickname: Berry Sue - Berii, for obvious reasons.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: A La Mode, for many fans.
  • Foe Yay: Bu-ling/Taruto is canon and Pai/Retasu semi-canon if you squint.
    • While not as common, there are people who ship Ichigo/Deep Blue.
    • Not to mention Zakuro/Pai. It's still overshadowed by Pai/Retasu, though.
  • Gary Stu: Most American fans view Aoyama to be this. He's popular at school, the star kendo champion, emotionally balanced and an amazing boyfriend. They didn't realize that everything mentioned (except the boyfriend part) was an attempt to blend into society and that he's really Deep Blue.
  • Les Yay: Minto and Zakuro, to the point where it probably goes beyond Sub Text.
  • Macekre: They change the setting from Japan to America, despite it being probably the most Japanese show they've ever dealt with. It was initially touted by 4Kids as "Hollywood Mew Mew" (which eventually became an episode name). Al Kahn is quoted in a press release for this as having said "By the time we localize the programs, kids won't even know they're from Japan any more." They actually made episode 12 in Japan into episode 1 in America and threw it straight into Canon Discontinuity, not to mention the ending of that episode in the dub.
  • Mary Sue: Depending on where you draw the Mary Sue line, Berii either comes dangerously close to this, or goes way beyond it.
  • Periphery Demographic: (Mostly) adult male doujinshika.
  • Relationship Sue: Masaya is often seen as this by American fans, who claim that he's "perfect" and ignore the fact that he's only projecting a "perfect" persona in front of a deeply flawed interior.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Berii.
  • Ron the Death Eater: Masaya. Sure, he may be a Stepford Smiler because he hates all of humanity, at least prior to meeting Ichigo, but he wasn't born evil, although most people who hate him seem to not be aware of- or deliberately ignore- that spoilered part, which happens after the American dub ended, and instead demonize him as a Gary Stu.
  • The Scrappy: Masaya, hated by shippers.
  • Sequelitis: A la Mode.
