Despite her appearance, she can be very fierce if she is unhappy, especially when her work is unappreciated. She is sometimes insecure about herself, as she is afraid to cause trouble for everyone when she overdoes her job. She gets very angry when people call her "Fat Cell", showcasing her insecurities, as seen in Episode 5 when B Cell blames her for all the destruction and calls her "Fat Cell". She, in return, yells that the B in his name must stand for Bonehead and after some back and forth arguing, they fight each other.
