Like Garu, Pucca does not regularly speak words, though her reason for this is unknown. Instead, she often communicates with giggling, angry growling sounds, and occasional short words like "hello", "tada", and "yu huh!". However, Ching has said Pucca has a lovely singing voice, so rather than being incapable to speak, she chooses not to. She and Garu both sing in Hooray for Bollywood" (their voices, however, are completely different than the occasional noises that they make).
Pucca lives with her guardians the three Master Chefs at the Goh-Rong Restaurant, where she works as a delivery girl, driving around town on her red scooter making deliveries. She has a pink cat named Yani. The only times her hair is out of her usual style is in episodes "Ghost of a Kiss" (though it is her ancestor, Samara Morgan, who looked just like her); in "Ring Ring's Party Favors" when she was blasted out of the Goh-rong when Ring Ring caterwauls, destroying most of it, when her hair ties fall off, when she notices this, she mutters "oops" and stuffs them in her pockets; in "Gold Medal Garu" when she wears her hair in wavy pigtails as the Goddess of Sports; and "He Loves Me Not" where her hair was flowing from an unusual power and "Puccapatra" where her hair is down. Pucca is also a talented musician, as shown in "And the Band Played Rong", "Sooga Size Me", and a few other episodes. Most likely out of a desire to protect him, Pucca often takes over when Garu (unwillingly) gives up.
Pucca has an alter-ego named "Noodle Girl" that sometimes appears in the series. It is revealed in the episode "Tomb It May Concern" that Pucca is Uncle Dumpling, Ho and Linguini's niece (though it does not mention which side of the family they come from). The back of some of the Pucca DVD cases also states that the chefs are Pucca's uncles.
In the episode "Tokyo A Go-Go" she makes a parody of Sailor Moon using a magic rod to save Garu from the giant sumo wrestler, sending him into a volcano. In the episode "Dance, Pucca, Dance" her uncles asked if she needs one of their costumes for the party but she shows them what she was sewing, which was a costume of Garu.
Several boys had also fallen in love with her, including a Western version of Garu in the episode "Rootin' Tootin' Ninjas", a rich man called Lazlo Gozalotovish in the episode "Prince Not So Charming" and a clone of Garu in the episode "Romancing the Clone".
AppearancePucca wears a red shirt with black leggings and black shoes. Her hair is tied into two buns with two red hair ties, giving her an odango hairstyle. Although she usually keeps her eyes closed, in Dance, Pucca, Dance, she opens her eyes for her Garu costume. She has visible pink marks on her cheeks, which don't show when she grins.
Garu: Pucca has a huge but unrequited crush on Garu. She is always chasing him whenever she sees him, and won't leave him alone. She will do anything to be with him and will protect him when he's endangered.
Ching: Ching is Pucca's best friend and is usually with her. She is supportive of Pucca's romantic affection towards Garu and shares her feelings as she has an unrequited love for Garu's best friend, Abyo.
Dumpling, Ho, Linguini: The chefs are Pucca's uncles and mentors.
AbilitiesPucca, though seemingly not in a ninja school like Garu, Abyo, and Ching, has shown ninja abilities that far surpasses theirs. She is stronger and faster than any of them and can use magical abilities when properly motivated, like being able to conjure whirlwinds and earthquakes. She once defeated Tobe with chopsticks. As Noodle Girl, she has the ability to use noodles as deadly weapons, such as whips and lassos.
- Pucca's uncles are the owners of the Goh-Rong restaurant.

- Pucca was born on July 7th.
- She can understand Zombies. This was proven in the episode "A Better Boyfriend".
