- Anime Hair: Her drill hair which is almost as big as herself. It also acts as her Idiot Hair.
- This even applies to her past self. Outside of PriPara she wore a thick braided side-tail with a cowlick. In PriPara in her "Sugar" persona, she has a short bob curling inward with matching pieces of hair surrounding her bangs.

- Determinator: So much so that even though she assigns the disciplinary committee to confiscate idol-related items, she herself does it most of the time.
- Extreme Doormat: As intimidating as she is, she can be easily outwitted by an elementary schooler. Also, pizzas and food served from Lala's restaurant are her weakness.

- Large Ham: Every time her PriPara huntress mode is on, this is at its full effect.
- Noblewoman's Laugh
- The Nose Knows: Uses her nose to detect PriTickets while sounding like a pig. Though it is not always accurate.
- Not So Different: To Himeka's school principal in banning students from going to PriPara. Unlike her, she has a Freudian Excuse and lets go of it when she learned the truth from Himeka of how her banning mirrored her school principal.
- Purple Is the New Black

- Simple, yet Opulent: Has a purple royal/regal outfit. As a young Idol she wore the regal themed Marionette Mu.

- Well-Intentioned Extremist: She roams around her school in search of anyone who holds any PriTickets and anything involving PriPara. Sometimes gets Up to Eleven when she hunts down students outside the school premises and invades Lala's house and room without her consent.
- The well intention part comes in when it was revealed her grudge was because she was abandoned by her only friend when she was younger. It's possible that deep down she didn't want other girls to feel the way she did, although this isn't touched upon.
