Gym Leader Lieutenant Surge

Lieutenant Surge, aka “The Lightning American” (Fumihiko Tachiki / Maddie Blaustein) is the gym leader of Vermilion Gym. His Pokemon specialization is in Electric-types. During his time in the US Army, his life was saved by Electric-type Pokemon. His love and respect from them stems from that experience, and he appreciates trainers who are gutsy.

Esmeralda at the Festival of Fools

At the Parisian Festival of Fools, Romani woman Esmeralda (Demi Moore) performs a seductive dance for the excited crowd, including Quasimodo (Tom Hulce), Phoebus (Kevin Kline), and Judge Frollo (Tony Jay). Her dance drives Frollo to accuse her of witchcraft due to his lustful desire for her, and go after all of the Romani people living underground.

Granmamare

Granmamare (voiced by Yuki Amami in Japan, and Cate Blanchett in the American release) is not only the Goddess of Mercy and the Queen of the Ocean, but she is also the mother of Ponyo in the 2008 Studio Ghibli film “Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea.” She can change size at will, often enormous but occasionally the size of a human in order to interact with other beings. Her blousy blue dress is reminiscent of the sea.

Josie McCoy from Riverdale

Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) is the lead singer in Riverdale’s own Josie and the Pussycats, and an ambitious musician in her own right. After the Pussycats won Rockland County’s Battle of the Bands, Josie decided to take music even more seriously and create a signature look for the band – hence the iconic cat ears and leopard print.

Jinx

Prior to being an Honorary Teen Titans member, the witchy-looking metahuman Jinx (Lauren Tom) was a student at H.I.V.E. Academy and was the leader of the H.I.V.E. Five. Along with a penchant for sorcery, Jinx has the ability of “Probability Manipulation” – or more simply, can control bad luck. Her grey skin and general “alternative” look makes her similar to the Teen Titans’ Raven (Tara Strong).

Veronica Lodge from Riverdale

Riverdale’s new girl, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), is a self-professed recovering mean girl. After she and her mother moved from New York, Veronica quickly befriended Archie (KJ Apa) and Betty (Lili Reinhart), and shortly also joined the high school’s cheerleading team and Josie McCoy’s (Ashleigh Murray) band, Josie and the Pussycats. Veronica can usually be seen wearing some form of a pearl necklace as her signature piece.

Starlight Glimmer

Starlight Glimmer

Starlight Glimmer’s (Kelly Sheridan) first major appearance in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is as an antagonist, when she founds a village that bans individuality and strips ponies of their Cutie Marks using magic. After the Mane Six reveal that she’s a fraud, she takes revenge of them by traveling through time to wreak havoc on Equestria. She is defeated again, and Twilight Sparkle (Tara Strong) takes her under her wing as a student, beginning to teach her about the magic of friendship.

Tetra

In The Legend of Zelda series, Tetra is a feisty pirate girl who first meets Link in The Wind Waker. As a child, her mother gave her a charm and was ordered to protect it at all costs. This charm, in actuality, is a piece of the Triforce of Wisdom and is tied to her identity as Wind Waker’s incarnation of Princess Zelda. She’s notable for her swashbuckling attire and cheeky attitude, and only appears in the traditional Princess Zelda dress for a small time.

Summer Smith

Summer Smith (Spencer Grammer) is the sassy teenage sister of Morty Smith (Justin Roiland) and granddaughter of mad scientist Rick Sanchez (also voiced by Justin Roiland) in Adult Swim’s Rick & Morty. While she and Morty often fight in the way that siblings do (or perhaps to a greater, more chaotic extent thanks to the ordeals their grandfather gets them into), the pair really does care for each other, although Summer often expresses jealousy in not experiencing the same adventures.

Margaery Tyrell

Margaery Tyrell

A noble daughter of House Tyrell, Margaery (Natalie Dormer) finds herself married to not one, but three men vying for the Iron Throne over the course of her life before her untimely demise in Season 6 of Game of Thrones. Beautiful, cunning, and kind, Margaery used her brains and her beauty to climb the social hierarchy and settle herself time and time again in the place to become/be the Queen of Westeros. Up until Season 6, she is most often seen wearing shades of blue decorated with rose and vine motifs.
