The Galaxy Mews are the main protagonist team in Galaxy Mew Mew.

GMM Mews Recolor 1


The Galaxy Mews are subjects of the Galactic Mew Project which was created by a young geneticist named Akio Fujioka. Originally, the Mews were supposed to be themed around naturally occurring elements found on Earth, but Akio had to scrap the project because of the Rush, wherein he was forced to board a colony spaceship and leave behind a majority of his notes. After settling into the new colony, Akio had to recreate the entire project from scratch. Since he wasn't able to draw from the Earth anymore, he drew from elements in the galaxy around him.
All but one of the Galaxy Mews were transformed into biological super-weapons, created to fight against the Chimera Anima and clear them from the Earth so that the humans could return to it.
The Galaxy Mews are made up of five girls of varying ages, personalities and backgrounds. Each Galaxy Mew has a specific power or element that they can control and channel through their weapons, and all but one are infused with the DNA of a particular animal. In the main story, the Galaxy Mews who were affected by the Galactic Mew Project are unable to transform back into humans, and so they remain in their Mew forms for the most part. The only exception to this is Nexus, who has no animal DNA and remains unaffected by the project other than through her weapon, which Akio made especially for her.
Nexus is an alien inducted into the team after being discovered by the other Mews on Earth. She'd spent a long time there, having crash-landed in an escape ship from her home planet which had been overrun by an enemy species. She is not necessarily a Galaxy Mew by creation, but is still a welcomed member nonetheless and is a major contributor to their fight against the Chimera Anima.
Each Galaxy Mew has a name and theme relative to their power, which is linked to space in some way. Together, the Galaxy Mews use their powers to fight against the Chimera Anima, and work to defeat Ehne, their enemy and the main villain of the story.

  • The Mews were not originally set to fight against Ehne and were instead just going to clean up the Earth little by little. Ehne wasn't created officially until halfway into writing the main chapters in the story, but the concept of a villain was considered as early as chapter 3.
