Valentine's Day 2010
Tyra has a larger role in a series of Daily Growl articles that cover the events of Valentine's Day in 2010.
In Tamara Tesla's Makeover released on January 22, Tyra arranged a makeover contest for Moshi Monsters fans. It was designated to give Tamara Tesla an updated look, who was possibly going on a valentine's date with either Moe Yukky or Dewy or both.
However on February 13, covered in Birthday Drama, certain events piling up led to the day before Valentine's Day to become a fiasco. As it was Roary's birthday, he was dedicatedly searching for a surprise party, confident that Tyra and the others had prepared one. In Tamara's lab, he mistook a Valentine's Day present for Tamara for a birthday present. Unfortunately, he accidentally spilled the content of the present onto Tamara, which was a love potion from Dewy meant to poison Tamara into loving him. The result was Tamara, hit by the love potion, kissing Roary, and Tyra witnessing this. It is unknown why Tyra also happened to be in Tamara's lab.
On February 14, Moe Yukky posted an article called Happy Valentine's Day? ?, in which he states: "Roary's been hiding all day from Tyra Fangs. I've never seen her so mad!"

Tamara invited her to Gabby's Cafe and explained the situation. They then spend the rest of Valentine's Day together in a girls' night out, chatting until late night.
A postcard from Tyra send to Cap'n Buck is shown in the annual dedicated to him.
|“|| Dearest Bucky (I can call you that, can't I?),
When Roary told me that you were heading off on the seventy seas again I dashed down to the Port to wave goodbye. I assumed you'd want me to smash a bottle of vintage Toad Soda against the Clipper, cut a ribbon and pose for farewell photos, but by the time I got there you had GONE! I can only assume, sniff, that there was a technical hitch. Perhaps you'd like to explain when you're back in the Port..
