Most anime characters have certain traits, like being cute, wild, determined, scary, charming, and so on. But some characters are able to show two sides of themselves that are usually very different from each other. Most of the time, cute characters wear colours like bubblegum pink and speak in sweet voices.
When anime characters play scary characters, they will give you the creeps or be seen as someone you shouldn’t mess with. Some anime characters can dance gracefully on the line between good and bad. These characters are both adorable and scary at the same time.

She cheers and talks in a way that reminds me of children’s songs. She does not care about her safety and laughs and smiles when things are bad.

Once Sugar changes a person or creature, everyone who knew that person or creature forgets about them. Because of these abilities, Doflamingo and the Donquixote Pirates couldn’t do without her. As she eats a lot of grapes, she looks like a child, so she can get away with a lot more.
