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.

Koopa Troopa

The lowly Koopa Troopa is a minion of Bowser in the Mario franchise. They’re most often seen with green or red shells, and are one of the most common enemies that a player might find in-game. They’re easily disposed of by simply jumping up and bopping them on the head.

Princess Tiana as Waitress

Arguably the most hardworking and ambitious of all of Disney’s princesses, Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) is the protagonist of The Princess and The Frog. She is a cook and waitress living in Jazz Age New Orleans, with the dream of opening her own restaurant. After a series of misadventures involving voodoo, bayou creatures, and a Maldonian prince, she eventually accomplishes her goal.

Mai Valentine

In Yu-Gi-Oh!, a beautiful and largely arrogant duelist, Mai Valentine (Haruhi Terada / Megan Hollingshead) is a rival of Yugi Muto (Shunsuke Kazama / Dan Green) and his friends. She cons and seduces men out of money and victories with her faux-psychic powers and her Harpies deck. After spending more time with the protagonists of the series, however, she becomes less cold and hesitant to the idea of having actual friends.

Jay Bilzerian

In Big Mouth, the youngest boy in a violently dysfunctional family, Jay Blizerian (Jason Mantzoukas) is a friend of Andrew, Nick, and Jessi. Jay is passionate about magic tricks, his pillow, and not getting pummeled by his older brothers. Later in the first season, Jay and Jessi start to become closer romantically.

Jessi Glaser from Big Mouth

A close friend of Andrew and Nick in Big Mouth, Jessi Glaser (Jessi Klein) is just another girl trying to navigate the beginning of her teen years. After getting her period for the first time on a school field trip, she meets the Hormone Monstress and shenanigans ensue. One of her first acts of pubescent rebellion is in buying a scandalous red push-up bra.

Ceremonial Princess Zelda from Breath of the Wild

In the century prior to the main events of Breath of the Wild, Princess Zelda (Yu Shimamura / Patricia Summersett) and her allies fought against Calamity Ganon. Dressed in ceremonial garb, Zelda was ready to awaken the powers of Hylia within her when Ganon struck Hyrule in an unexpected place. When she was unable to harness her powers in time, she and Link were forced to flee…And so Breath of the Wild begins.

Merlin

In the BBC series of the same name, Merlin (Colin Morgan) is a sorcerer, Dragonlord, and beloved friend/advisor to Prince Arthur Pendragon (Bradley James), the young heir to the throne. The series follows him and his adventures following his destiny in the kingdom of Camelot. His costume is often a combination of red, blue, and brown, although the blue and red pieces sometimes switch.

Killer Frost (Earth Two)

In the parallel timeline dubbed Earth Two from the television show The Flash, Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker), real name Caitlin, was a metahuman villain allied with her husband Deathstorm (Robbie Amell), Reverb (Carlos Valdes), and the evil speedster Zoom (Teddy Sears). Her ability to shoot frozen air out of her palms complemented her lover’s fiery fury. Similar to Earth One’s Killer Frost, she has an affinity for black leather.

The Eevee Brothers

In the Pokémon: Indigo League episode, “The Battling Eevee Brothers,” Ash (Veronica Taylor / Rica Matsumoto) and his friends come upon four brothers trying to convince the youngest how he should evolve his beloved Eevee. Each of the elder brothers has one of the original Eeveelutions: Jolteon, Flareon, and Vaporeon. Their hair and pants reflect which Pokémon specific element/type their Pokémon is now affiliated with.
