|OCCUPATION||Caretaker of Platelet Division|
|MANGA DEBUT||Chapter 26|
Megakaryocyte (巨核球 Kyokakukyū?) is a minor character in Cells at Work!
She serves as a teacher and caretaker to the Platelets.
She is a tall, heavyset woman with long hair who wears a cap, a t-shirt, a sweater, and shorts. She is shown carrying a baby cell on her chest.
Megakaryocyte is somewhat of a harsh commander to the platelets. She criticizes them and bribes them with medals to get them to accomplish a difficult task. However, it shows that she cares about them when she encourages and rewards them after a success.
Since platelets are produced from megakaryocytes by fragmentation, Megakaryocyte could be seen as the mother of the Platelets.
