Sam Winchester

As the younger brother of Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) in The CW’s Supernatural, Sam (Jared Padalecki) has seen his fair share of demons, angels, and other creatures. In line with his role as a hunter and Man of Letters, he wears fairly utilitarian clothing like work boots and heavy denim. Up until it was removed by Castiel (Misha Collins), Sam had matching anti-possession tattoos with Dean.

Mello from Death Note

The elder of L’s two successors, Mello (Nozomu Sasaki / David Hurwitz) is an antagonist in the Death Note series. While he is indeed older than Near, he is less intelligent than his counterpart, which is something he is exceedingly aware of. Mello can often be seen eating chocolate bars, and typically wears dark colors and leather.

Gym Leader Flannery

Specializing in Fire-type Pokémon, Flannery (voiced by Lisa Ortiz in the anime) is the resident gym leader of Lavaridge Town. Her gym also serves as the local hot spring. Her wild red hair can be replicated with a lot of patience and even more hair spray, and the flame logo on her shirt can easily applied to a plain tee using paint.

Fubuki from One-Punch Man

Fubuki (Saori Hayami / Laura Post), the younger sister of Tatsumaki (Aoi Yuki / Marieve Herington), is a B-Class hero in the universe of One-Punch Man. Her hero training and psychic powers earned her the name Blizzard of Hell, and she takes her advancement in the realm of heroes very, very seriously. For the proper effect, make sure to wear the fur coat draped over your shoulders and not as an actual jacket.

Princess Jasmine in Red

While Princess Jasmine’s (Linda Larkin) classic outfit is teal blue in color, she briefly wears red after Jafar (Jonathon Freeman) takes control of the Genie (Robin Williams) and all of Agrabah. She uses her feminine wiles to distract Jafar and give Aladdin (Scott Weinger) time to trick Jafar into wishing he was a genie. In this case, the costume matches her fiery, independent personality.

Blisstina ‘Bliss’ Utonium

Years before Professor Utonium (Tom Kane) created the Powerpuff Girls — Blossom (Amanda Leighton), Bubbles (Kristen Li), and Buttercup (Natalie Palamides) — he created Blisstina Utonium (Olivia Olson), better known as Bliss. After accidentally adding Chemical W to a mix of sugar, spice, and everything nice, Bliss was created as the “perfect little girl”…but with superpowers. At some point in her childhood, her powers began to manifest in a volatile manner whenever she felt emotions too strongly. After accidentally blowing up the house, she sends herself into exile. She reunites with her family in the Powerpuff Girls special, “The Power of Four.”

Adrien Agreste

Adrien Agreste (Bryce Papenbrook) is the day-to-day identity of the teen superhero Cat Noir in Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. He uses the Cat Miraculous, a ring inhabited by a creature called Plagg, in order to turn into his feline-themed alter ego. Adrien and Marinette share both requited and unrequited feelings for each other, depending on which persona they’re in. As classmates, Marinette crushes on Adrien, but as heroes the roles are reversed.

Lust

Dark, mysterious, and seductive, Lust (Laura Bailey / Kikuko Inoue) is a homunculus named after one of the seven deadly sins. In the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise, she is a major antagonist and enemy of Edward (Vic Mignogna / Romi Park) and Alphonse Elric (Maxey Whitehead / Rie Kugimiya). Lust is the only female homunculus and (in the manga/Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) serves as the leader until she is destroyed by Roy Mustang (Travis Willingham / Shinichiro Miki). Her homunculus mark is located on her chest as reference to her particular sin.

Peach and Daisy from Mario Sports Mix

While Princess Peach is instantly recognizable as Mushroom Kingdom’s damsel in distress in many of the Mario franchise’s games, her counterpart Princess Daisy is also a frequently appearing character in Mario spinoffs. In most titles, Daisy wears a variation of Peach’s dress with slightly different details and in a sunny orange and yellow color scheme. In the various Mario sports games, Peach and Daisy keep their respective palettes, but in athletic wear.

Near from Death Note

The younger and more gifted of L’s successors, Near (Noriko Hidaka / Cathy Weseluck) is characterized by his eerie monochromatic appearance in the Death Note manga. In the anime, his outfit is near the same except for the color of his baggy pajama pants. Despite his genius intellect, he is both childish in his looks and in his mannerisms.
