Ichigo Momomiya

Ichigo Momomiya is the main protagonist of Tokyo Mew Mew and the first Mew to be introduced. She has the genes of the Iriomote Wildcat and her Mew form is Mew Ichigo. She is 13 years old (11 in the manga and 15 in most dubs) and goes to Daikan Junior High School. In her spare time, she works at Café Mew Mew with the rest of the girls. She has a huge crush on Masaya Aoyama, who later on becomes her boyfriend.


Ichigo is a very bright, happy, and hyper young girl who enjoys spending time with her friends. She has a bold nature and is very brave, except towards ghosts. Ichigo is hardworking, friendly, and a good leader. She can be very excitable, and sometimes overreacts when excited or angry. She is emotional, and sometimes allows her emotions to get the best of her. On occasion, Ichigo will succumb to her animal instincts and act very cat-like.


Ichigo has pale skin, brown eyes, and cherry red hair that is often seen tied into pigtails with red ribbons. She wears a red ribbon with a bell on it around her neck. She has several different outfits, but is usually seen wearing her school uniform. When working at the café, she wears a red dress with a white, heart-shaped apron and pink and white ribbons. She also wears pink socks and laces with black shoes. Instead of pigtails, Ichigo's hair is clipped with a lace headband and let down.


Ichigo is shown to act like a cat sometimes, and even has cat-like agility from her animal DNA. When she becomes excited or scared, her ears and tail will pop out until she calms down. When she's kissed, she even turns into a small black cat and cannot turn back until she's kissed again.

Mew Ichigo

When transformed, Ichigo's hair and eyes turn a bright bubblegum pink to match her outfit. She grows black cat ears and a tail that has a dark pink ribbon tied around it with a bell. Her hair is let down and is slightly wavy. She wears a fluffy light pink dress with matching arm puffs and a garter on her right leg, as well as a choker with her Mew Pendant around her neck. Her gloves are wrist-length, dark pink, and have points on the cuffs. Her knee-length boots are the same dark pink with black laces. She has dark pink fur trimming the top of her dress and around her arm puffs, garter, and choker. Her Mew Mark is located on her inner right thigh.
