She is confident, energetic, cheerful and very smart. She has a lively and boyish voice. The way she talks and her bold laughter easily leave viewers a memorable impression. The random funny gibberish she speaks during gameplays is also her signature. As an experienced gamer she has remarkable gaming skills and has shown an impressively unbeatable attitude when it comes to playing challenging games. She can be competitive and excited when it comes to playing games and likes to try out different titles. During collabs with other members, she often plays the role of a game master.


She greets viewers with "Oha-risu-!" (​おはりすー!) and her ending phrase is "Bye-cha-!" (ばいちゃー).
