"Genki" is [[GratuitousJapanese Japanese]] for "energetic" or "enthusiastic." The Genki Girl is a character--usually a schoolgirl, but not always--who acts like she's been mainlining Red Bull and crystal meth. She is possessed of an over-abundance of energy, such that she [[ThunderingHerd runs everywhere]] (often with arms [[HumanHummingbird waving wildly]] or [[AirplaneArms outstretched like airplane wings]]), [[MotorMouth speaks quickly]] (sometimes unintelligibly so), and always does everything fast, fast, fast! She's filled with confidence and determination, regardless of whether she's competent or not. Although usually played exclusively for comedy, sometimes the Genki Girl slows down for a serious or introspective moment. But not for long--she lives her life full-throttle. To sum it up, a good way of telling whether a female character is ''genki'' or not is to see if her family and peers are exhausted, astonished, or even creeped out by her chronic outbursts of vitality. (A female character is by far the more common version, but this trope is [[RareMaleExample not limited to females]].)

Despite what you'd think, the Genki Girl is usually not TheDitz. However, there have been a few blends. She is very often a MotorMouth or a [[TheNicknamer Nicknamer]]. If she focuses her powers almost solely on getting a boring guy to relish life, she's a ManicPixieDreamGirl. Less sympathetic portrayals often make her the {{Jerkass}} of the group. Alternatively, she could be both. Some are even the resident {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.

* Creator/KristenSchaal seems to have forged an entire career out of [[WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers playing]] [[WesternAnimation/ToyStoryThatTimeForgot Genki]] [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Girls]]. Her real life persona is ''slightly'' less genki than her various animated ones, but not by much, as evidenced by her congratulating one of her fellow NeverMindTheBuzzcocks contestants with a "JohnHughes 80s movie clap."

* ''FanFic/APikachuInLove'' gives us Pichi, a rather hyperactive Pikachu who, if not for her ''much'' nicer disposition and lacking of [[RealityWarper reality warping powers]], could be mistaken for the Pikachu equivalent of [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]]. [[spoiler:Gets '''''BRUTALLY''''' {{Deconstructed}} later on when her wacky and carefree antics nearly get Pikachu ''killed'' by an Ursaring and cause her to suffer a HeroicBSOD due to feeling like [[ItsAllMyFault it's all her fault]]. She gets over it a little as the fic goes on, but is noticeably a ''lot'' less carefree and perky for the rest of the fic]].
