Kaoru is the third and final member of the Powerpuff Girls Z. She transforms using the phrase "Powered Buttercup" and uses a Daruma Otoshi hammer. She hates skirts and other girly things, which is the reason why she was reluctant to join the group.

In fact, she even hates girls who are too girly. Designed as an homage to Ranma 1/2's tomboy Akane Tendo and like the original Buttercup, Kaoru is a tomboy and is the most easily enraged of the three. Famous for being the most athletic girl in school, Kaoru enjoys all kinds of sports and spends a great deal of time watching sports on television. She is especially good at soccer. Much to her dismay, she is well-admired by a lot of fangirls in school. She speaks with a hard and masculine edge and rarely uses honorifics when speaking.

Her greatest fear is ghosts. Kaoru lives with her father, who is a professional masked-wrestler, mother and two brothers, one older and one younger. It is thought that she has feelings for Butch because in episode 51 when the girls kissed the Rowdyruff boys, Buttercup was the last to stop because she was told that she could stop now. She is represented by stars. She dreams of being a professional wrestler like her dad in the future.

Shambu seems to have a thing for her as he tends to mention her quite a bit on NR.


Member's opinions on Powered ButtercupEdit

  • Resurgence finds her anger to be amusing. He thinks she is cool but is his least fav of the three PPGZ.
  • Kiske likes her the most out of the three, but not by much.
  • Shambuu likes her the most out of the other two. Probably because she's the "tough" one and for her Epic Hammer.
