Pudding Fong (黄 歩鈴, Fon Purin
) is the fourth Mew Mew introduced to the readers, though she first appears at the endangered animal exhibit with the other future Mew Mews to help stop bullies from picking on Lettuce. She reappears towards the end of the first volume, performing acrobatic tricks for Ichigo and Masaya at the zoo, then asking them to pay for the performance. When Kish and the Mew Mews begin a battle at the zoo Ichigo saves Pudding from a fall, only to have Pudding push her out of the way when an elephant is about to step on her. Rather than being crushed, Pudding escapes and transforms into her Mew Mew form. Infused with the DNA of a Golden Lion Tamarin, Pudding grows a monkey tail and ears while transformed, and fights with a pair of rings.
Though her age is never stated, Pudding is said to be the youngest of the Mew Mews, and still acts like a child at times. While working at the café, Pudding regularly does acrobatic tricks, resulting in broken dishes and dropped orders. She is full of energy and loves having fun, to the point Mint considers her very immature and the other Mew Mews agree that her monkey DNA is a perfect match for her personality. In the fifth volume, it is revealed that Pudding is raising her four brothers and sister and managing the family finances, while their father is away to train in the mountains. While the manga does not mention Pudding's mother, the anime adaptation states that her mother died.
When Tart captures Pudding and holds her hostage, she gives him a piece of candy and declares that he is her new "bud". Though Tart later refers to her as "spooky", he also looks at the candy she gave him and laughs. When the Mew Mews face Tart and Pie in the final battle, Pudding asks Tart if they must fight, and while he hesitates a moment, he affirms they must. The Mew Mews defeat the two aliens, and Tart tells Pudding that he never hated her, causing Pudding to cry over him. After Deep Blue's defeat, Pudding is upset that Tart is leaving to return to his own world. She kisses him, giving him a candy drop in his mouth at the same time. She also gives him other presents and tells him she does not want it to be goodbye. Tart blushes and says he may come back to get another candy drop from her.
In the anime adaptation, the relationship between Pudding and Tart is expanded, with Tart being the one who saves Pudding from the underground cavern when he realizes she was suffocating from a lack of oxygen. Towards the end of the anime, Tart catches Pudding when she falls from exhaustion, and Pudding tells him that his presences makes her stronger.[episode needed
