Pucca and Garu's relationship is one of the main focus of the series, both the Flash series and the TV series. It can be debated whether or not Garu returns feelings of affection towards Pucca since he is constantly running away from her, however it can be argued that he is just shy or embarrassed and is too dedicated to his training to worry about his feelings for her. Considering that Garu is only 13 years old, he may not even recognize his already existing, maybe growing, feelings for her.


Pucca is a very strong willed girl who, more often than not, gets what she wants and there is only one thing that she wants more than anything in the whole world and that's to kiss her ninja 'Boyfriend'. She is shown not to however only care for this as in the episode Feud Fight after becoming saddened by her uncles fighting and the sorrow of the town she completely ignores Garu (to his delight).

Pucca is shown in the series to have almost superhuman abilities such as strength and speed and her rage can be so great at times that it will even begin to effect the weather. Although she has all these abilities she hardly ever uses them to her advantage in capturing Garu.

Although it is no secret that Pucca has an endless affection for Garu she has on one account almost let him go. In the episode He Loves Me Not Ring Ring tries to marry a fake Garu in order to upset Pucca. She even sits at their wedding and watches unhappily as the man she loves so dearly is getting married to another woman. This shows that if Garu really wanted another woman in his life she would let him, no matter how sad or angry it would make her.


In Kissing with Ice Cream



To Pucca's frustration, Garu rarely returns any form of affection and always tries to escape Pucca's attempts to kiss him. It is possible that Garu does like Pucca back, since he frequently spends time with her but it is no secret that he does enjoy his time alone since Pucca loves to be around him almost any chance she gets. In the original flash series, however, Garu is seen showing more affection towards Pucca and they are more explicitly displayed as a couple.
