"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]].)

%% * Similarly, Creator/TaraStrong isn't too far removed voices many of the GenkiGirl characters listed above and it comes straight from some of her more genki roles in own personality. In any interview she'll be bubbly and personable. Fan reports list her as one of the friendliest and most accessible people at conventions. She was going to voice Pinkie Pie, listed above. She ended up voicing [[TheSmartGuy Twilight Sparkle]] instead, but says Pinkie is closer to her real life.personality.[[note]]Ironically Pinkie's voice actress Andrea Libman says that Twilight is closer to her own personality.[[/note]]

%% * ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': Ed, Eddy and Jonny.is a mischievous take on this trope. His enthusiasm is put into coming up with elaborate scams to earn money for jawbreakers. He's also quite loud. In fact, one episode had all the boys competing to give up their vices. Eddy's was to give up being loud.

* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': Because of his accelerated perception of time, Quicksilver seems to get bored easily. Xavier calls him a pain in the ass because he refuses to stay still, running circles around his guests and generally amusing himself at their expense.

* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series has a lot:
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]'' and ''Radiant Dawn'': Mia, who is obsessed with finding her rival (a swordsperson in white) and dueling people at dawn.
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'': Tiltyu is a tragic example of how a Genki Girl can eventually [[BreakTheCutie break down]] and cannot be genki anymore for the rest of her life. Sylvia also counts, and for the second half Fee and Patty (and her replacement Daisy) more than fit the bill.
%% ** ''Fire Emblem'' has Serra ([[StepfordSmiler for the most part]]), Rebecca, and Nino, and ''The Sword of Seals'' has Shanna the Pegasus knight and Lalam the dancer.
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones The Sacred Stones]]'': Princess Tana is the archetypical "cheerful, willful, plucky" example, but Princess L'Arachel is the trope taken to new extremes since she manages to mix the trope with CloudCuckooLander, LargeHam ''and'' LordErrorProne, which results in an incredibly... unique character as a whole.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'': Lissa, Nowi, and Cynthia. Cynthia is an even bigger example than the other two, since she manages to combine this trope with LargeHam and CloudCuckoolander (similarly to L'Arachel).
*** Nowi is also a [[DeconstructedTrope more realistic take on the trope]]. She's a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent manakete]] and painfully aware of [[WhoWantsToLiveForever she will outlive almost every single loved one he has]], so her genkiness is both very genuine and a coping mechanism. After all, why spend her super-long life crying when she can spend it laughing most of the time?
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': Elise is a super cheerful WhiteMage abd pretty much the "ray of sunshine" among [[DecadentCourt the somber, broken]] princes and princesses of Nohr. She stays as cheery in the ''Conquest'' path [[spoiler: and ''Revelations'']], but falls into depression in the ''Birthright'' route [[spoiler: and ends up as TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth in the second]].
