Pudding is an arrogant and self centered egomaniac whose only interest is becoming the most popular and influential teen idol of her generation. Pudding, depending on her loyalty, can be an influential ally. She is very helpful in assisting her acquaintances when there is trouble. However, she will never tolerate betrayal, as she finds it hard to trust anyone.

In Sega Superstars Tennis, Pudding uses archived voice clips from both Sumalee Montano and Larissa Murray.
