Unlocking Requirements

A bag of goldfish is required to unlock Momo. To unlock Momo, dispose the bag of goldfish when you are outside (University Campus, Dawnwood Park, etc) and she will appear when you try to leave the area. Regardless of your dialogue choices, Momo will appear in your HunieBee as a candidate to date.

Physical Description

In Momo's default appearance, she has short, red hair with bangs; her hair extends no further than her shoulders. Her eyes are golden with narrow pupils like the eyes of a cat. Momo is also pale with a slim build and wears a black collar with a bell on her neck and a very short, navy blue kimono with a design of a white streak pattern across the top and white flowers. She has a little bow on her tail that has the same pattern as the kimono. On her feet, she wears white socks with brown sandals. Like a cat, Momo has cat ears with short black fur on the outside and white fluffy fur on the inside and a black tail with white fur at the end. Like the other characters, Momo has various outfits and hairstyles that are unlockable throughout the game.

Personality

"She is very sweet, innocent and adorable; with a naive child-like mentality about most things. She loves to run around outside and play in the sun but tends to come back inside at night. Momo lives to make her master happy. Once you discover how to unlock her and become her new master, she will become very attached to you."- Game Description

History

Momo is a stray cat girl that is in desperate need of a master. Momo's origins are unknown; even she says she has no idea where she came from when asked.

Controversy

Momo has been the subject of controversy and head-scratchers since her reveal in HuniePop, mainly correlating to her age and catlike interactions.

Age

Momo claims her age is one year old in cat years, and the developers confirm that this translates to 18 human years. Despite the official statement, fans continue to debate the formula for converting one cat year to human years (ranging anywhere from 15 to 24 human years old) to determine Momo's human age equivalent.

Origins

Momo's identity is a hot topic of debate among fans. She receives many more questions than any of the other fantasy characters regarding her origins. This is most likely because while all the other characters have a clear understanding of what they are and where they come from, Momo seems to be entirely clueless.

Momo adamantly claims she is a "kitty," yet beyond the obvious physical and mental differences, a number of her interactions and interests contradict this statement.

  • Momo's favorite foods are vegetables and sweets. These foods both ignore the fact that cats cannot taste sweet foods (a fact she clearly knows as it's a question she will quiz the player on), and are carnivores generally unable to digest herbaceous foods.
  • While her favorite gift type being Aquarium fits the typical cat's interest in fish, Momo claims that she does not eat "pets" (goldfish), despite the fact that fish are a staple food in a cat's diet.
  • Momo expresses displeasure to water when taken to water-based date spots, perpetuating the widely exerted belief that cats hate water. Regardless, she owns a swimsuit (or at least willingly wears one to date the protagonist).

Trivia

  • Momo's name has two meanings depending on the way her name is read in Japanese: 百 (momo) meaning "hundred" or 桃 (momo) meaning "peach".
  • A quarter of Momo's Gift Collection is related to toys. However, most of the toys that the protagonist can gift her are related to puzzles or require thinking, contradicting Momo's very low intelligence or ignorance on many things. At the least, she has basic literacy or can work a speech-to-text program and can figure out how to text and to take and send pictures, though how she came to own a phone or whatever she uses to contact the protagonist is another of her unknown traits.
  • The only times when Momo expresses anger is when the protagonist tries to give her food that are not vegetables or desserts, when she is taken to the Hot Springs where she will hiss at the water, and occasionally when matching Broken Heart tokens on a date (even then, she is more likely to express worry or confusion at the protagonist).
  • Momo is the lightest character of all twelve HuniePop characters at 100 pounds.
  • Momo's Super Sailor outfit may be a reference to a Japanese anime classic, Sailor Moon.
  • All the names of Momo's hairstyles are in romanized Japanese. Translating the names of Momo's hairstyles (except "koneko," which means "kitten") correlates to "romantic" vocabulary or to her most desired trait, Romance.
  • Of the four characters who will drink at any time of the day, Momo is the only one with low alcohol tolerance.
  • Momo is the only character who does not have a last name.
  • While Audrey is the only character confirmed in-game to have been a virgin before sleeping with the protagonist, Momo seems mostly ignorant about sex, picking up how to be sexual from the protagonist's porn stash and sometimes not seeming to fully understand feelings of sexual arousal beyond an instinctive urge to be close to the protagonist, suggesting she too may have been virginal before meeting the protagonist.
  • Momo is the only character from HuniePop to neither appear nor have her default outfit referenced in HuniePop 2: Double Date.
    • However, the Chibi Figurine gift in HuniePop 2 looks just like Momo. Also, the player has the option to mention Momo to Lailani and Nora during one of their conversations.
  • The quote when the player gives her alcoholic drinks at night is a reference to the "Si, esta bien" meme.
  • Momo is one of eight girls to appear in Random Encounters' video HuniePop the Musical. The others are Nikki (portrayed by Kyanna's voice actress, Hayden Daviau), Kyanna, Audrey, Tiffany, Aiko, Venus, and Kyu.
