Gym Leader Whitney

A gym leader who trains only the cutest of Normal-type Pokemon, Whitney (Yuko Miyamura / Megan Hollingshead) is a rather unorthodox trainer. She’s young, sensitive, and admittedly a bit immature, but her Miltank is a force to be reckoned with. If you defeat her, she will give you the Plain Badge…but only after crying about it.

Izumi Curtis

Though she claims to be merely a housewife, Fullmetal Alchemist’s Izumi Curtis (Shoko Tsuda /
Christine Auten) is also a master alchemist and a skilled martial artist. After leaving home, Edward (Romi Park / Vic Mignogna) and Alphonse Elric (Rie Kugimiya / Maxey Whitehead) find themselves under her tutelage, and she grows to love them as her own children. Izumi’s hair is either styled into dreadlocks or braids, depending on who you ask, but the rest of her signature outfit is very straightforward.

Dr Finkelstein_Character

Dr. Finkelstein

In The Nightmare Before Christmas, a grumpy, muttering old geezer, Dr. Finkelstein (William Hickey) is the creator of Sally (Catherine O’Hara) and the resident scientist in Halloween Town. While he is often shown being grouchy, he is highly protective of Sally and always eager to research and experiment with new ideas – especially if they involve Jack Skellington (Chris Sarandon). At the end of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Dr. Finkelstein is shown to be wheeled around by his new wife that he created with half of his brain.

Megara

Megara/Meg (Susan Egan) is the feisty, street-smart, sarcastic love interest in Disney’s “Hercules.” In exchange for her soul, Hades (James Woods) saves the life of the man she loves. But when he leaves her, her trust in love and men is shattered. Up until she hesitantly falls for Hercules (Tate Donovan), she’s on a mission Hades to take him down.

Trixie

Trixie (Kathleen Barr) is an illusionist pony who resides in Ponyville, and is close friends with the reformed Starlight Glimmer (Kelly Sheridan). She acts as both a villain and a hero throughout My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, often falling victim to her own pride and ambition. She often dramatically refers to herself as “The Great and Powerful Trrrrrixie!”

The Beldam (Coraline’s “Other Mother”)

In the creepiest kid’s movie you’ll ever see, the Beldam (Teri Hatcher) is a creature that exists in an alternate world discovered by Coraline’s titular character. Posing as a more fun version of Coraline’s (Dakota Fanning) mother, the Beldam in its true form is a tall and willowy spider-like creature who kidnaps children and loves them obsessively until they die. The main physical difference between Coraline’s true mother and the Beldam in her mother’s form are the two shiny black buttons that cover her eyes.

Celty Sturluson

Also known as The Black Rider or The Headless Rider, Celty (Miyuki Sawashiro / Kari Wahlgren) is an Irish fairy in Japan seeking her missing head in Durarara!! While doing so, she works as an underground transporter and lives with her love interest, Shinra Kishitani (Jun Fukuyama / Yuri Lowenthal). She is almost always seen in her black catsuit and yellow motorcycle helmet, as she’s self-conscious about the fact that she lacks a head.

Gene Belcher

Gene Belcher (Eugene Mirman) is the fart-noise-loving, keyboard-playing, clueless middle child of Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) and Linda Belcher (John Roberts) in the Fox series, Bob’s Burgers. He’s your average 11-year-old boy, and maintains a close relationship with his sisters, Tina (Dan Mintz) and Louise (Kristen Schaal), although he often finds himself wrapped up in Louise’s schemes. More than anything, he wants to be a musician.

Molly Hooper

Miss Molly Hooper (Louise Brealey), a specialist registrar who works in the morgue of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, is a close friend of one Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) in the BBC series Sherlock. Under her work-appropriate lab coat, Molly is often seen wearing clothing that could perhaps by described as a little frumpy and comfortable. She is a generally unassuming woman, only flaring up at Sherlock when the situation calls for it.

Haku (Nigihayami Kohaku Nushi)

In Spirited Away, when Chihiro Ogino (Rumi Hiiragi/Daveigh Chase) crosses into the Spirit World, Haku (Miyu Irino/Jason Marsden) is the first spirit she truly interacts with, and he acts as her protector throughout the film. When Haku is affected by a curse, Chihiro heals him with a magic dumpling and her pure love for him. Near the end of the story, Haku is revealed to be the spirit of the Kohaku River that Chihiro had fallen into as a small child. This explained his unusual knowledge of, and closeness to, her.
