After the aliens are defeated at the end of the first series, Masha chooses to stay with his owner Ichigo Momomiya when she goes to London with her boyfriend Masaya Aoyama. With Masha's absence, this could be why Ucha was created and Masha was not given to Berry Shirayuki, the protagonist of the second series.
Appearance and Personality
Masha has a round, furry, pink body. He is small enough for people to hold him in one hand. He has pink cat ears and large pink eyes. He always appears to be blushing, like Ucha. Masha looks the same as the Masha from Tokyo Black Cat Girl. He is very protective of Ichigo and tries to help in battles, but often fails to do so.
Masha can sense when someone is in trouble and, like Ucha, detect Chimera Animals and Mew Aqua. He also is able to "collect" defeated Chimera Animals by eating the jelly-filled enemies so they do not attack anyone or anything again. While he does this, he exclaims "Collect!". He can also merge with Mew Aqua found by the Mew Mews to transform into the Mew Aqua Rod, allowing any of the Mew Mews to perform the Ribbon Aqua Drops healing attack.
In the Tokyo Mew Mew anime adaptation, Masha has a more extensive vocabulary, and tries, unsuccessfully, to assist the Mew Mews in some battles. Primarily communicating by repeating the sounds "pi" and "tweet", Masha does not appear to be designed to support high-level speech initially, though in Tokyo Mew Mew a la Mode he is once shown speaking in a complete sentence.

- Both Masha and Ucha can transform into weapons to help assist in battles (Ucha becomes Berry's main weapon, and Masha becomes the Mew Aqua Rod).
- Tokyopop made a mistake of referring Masha as a female in volume 3, while calling him male in the other volumes. He is male in Tokyo Black Cat Girl, the manga and the anime in Japan.
- Masha/Mini Mew didn’t appear in the English dub till episode 2 of Mew Mew Power because the 12th episode counted as the first episode because 4kids showed it’s dub pilot first on TV.
