[[caption-width-right:300:[-SHE CONQUERED THE MIGHTY MOON SNAIL-]!]]

->''"[[{{Muggles}} Live people]] [[WeirdnessCensor ignore the strange and unusual]]. [[GenreSavvy I myself]] ''[[GenreSavvy am]]'' [[GenreSavvy strange and unusual.]]"''
-->-- '''Lydia''', ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}''

%% One quote. Please place additional entries on the quotes tab.

She's not normal, that's for sure. The only thing you can pin down about the Strange Girl is that she's hard to pin down (when she isn't doing the pinning, that is). She's visually distinct from her normal peer group, typically in both physical appearance (she's likely to be an EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette[=/=]RavenHairIvorySkin) and dress, but sometimes only one of the two. As far as demeanor is concerned, she can be anything from BunnyEarsLawyer, a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, TheStoic, a [[TakeOverTheWorld world conqueror]], TheMessiah, TheOphelia, an EmotionlessGirl... or [[TheQuietOne quiet]], [[StraightMan sensible]] and even friendly. Anything goes as long as it stands out from the series' norm.

The unifying trait of all Strange Girls is that they are protagonists and most importantly, are ''different'' from their peers (though [[LonersAreFreaks rarely]] will she be [[FriendlessBackground completely friendless]]). Her family or home life will be... ''interesting'' to say the least. Usually she is [[WeirdnessMagnet in touch]] with the supernatural aspects of her setting, even if she doesn't have powers herself. Because of this tendency to experience strange and supernatural adventures, it's not uncommon for their social clique to grow into a veritable MonsterMash of friends they've helped in various adventures, though they'll likely start out the series with at least one or two [[UnfazedEveryman Unfazed Everymen]] as completely human friends. Before long she's likely to have [[SeenItAll seen so much weirdness]] little if anything will faze her.

This character is very likely to be a {{Goth}} or show noticeable Goth influences, both in style of dress and in personality. The Goth subculture is particularly well-suited to this character type because it's made up of [[NightmareFetishist people who enjoy strange, morbid things]], on top of the fact that being different from the mainstream is one of the things that defines all countercultural subcultures. That last part means that it would also be quite reasonable for a StrangeGirl to be a member of the punk or {{Emo}}[[note]] The actual subculture, not the caricature of it that named the EmoTeen trope.[[/note]] subcultures, among others.

Compare ManicPixieDreamGirl, ReiAyanamiExpy, or TheOphelia. Contrast TheSnarkKnight.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya. "Normal humans don't interest me. If anyone here is an alien, a time traveler, slider, or an esper, then come find me! That is all."
** Sasaki might be vying for her position here. She seems far more normal, but is the one who actually does weird Kyon out due to always speaking with male pronouns when talking to boys, and the subject of most of her conversations being bizarre philosophical stuff.
* The titular character of ''{{Acony}}'', a slightly weird, morbid, purple-haired girl that claims to be 20-something. It doesn't help that ghosts frequently appear around her home.
* Urabe Mikoto, the titular character of the manga ''MysteriousGirlfriendX''. Urabe being really, really, ''really'' weird is pretty much the entire point of the manga -- Urabe is [[TheStoic somewhat unemotional]] and unsocial to the point of being a complete outcast, but seems to have some form of psychic powers -- specifically, she knows without a doubt that she will lose her virginity to the main character, Tsubaki Akira (the thought causes her to enter hysterics out of the blue during class), and shares an empathic connection with him that is initiated by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything spit]] -- a common trick she uses on him when she suspects him of dirty thoughts is to stick her finger in his mouth and suck on it before he can react -- she then instantly knows exactly what he was thinking. Similarly, Tsubaki is addicted to her spit, and has to have a dose a day or he suffers withdrawal. She can also cut things apart with superhuman speed and precision with the craft scissors she carries around in the waistband of her panties.
* It's hard to say whether Senjougahara Hitagi from ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' is {{Tsundere}}, {{Yandere}} or something else altogether, but either way she's unbelievably strange. She considers herself more powerful than [[Manga/DragonBall Shen Long]] and [[ImprobableWeaponUser carries a entire classroom worth of stationery]] [[HammerSpace concealed on her person]]. She promises her boyfriend that he'll be the first person she ever murders, and if someone else kills him then she'll avenge him - and she considers this ''romantic.''
* Rei Ayanami, of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion.'' Right from the start, her [[HeroicAlbino albinism]], [[TheStoic emotionlessness]] and ExtremeDoormat personality make her a ''highly'' strange girl. It might have to do with her being a [[spoiler:[[CloningBlues clone]]]] with a [[spoiler:[[HalfHumanHybrid hybrid mix of human and angel DNA]]]] who may or may not have a [[spoiler:{{soul}}.]]
** She does have a soul. It's the soul of [[spoiler:Lilith]], however.
*** [[spoiler:In fact, it's a major point in ''Rebuild'' that the new Rei clone is different than "Shinji's" Rei, precisely because she doesn't have a soul.]]
** And then there's Mari Makinami from ''RebuildOfEvangelion'', who [[BloodKnight loves fighting]], is [[NightmareFetishist fond of the smell of LCL]] and is socially awkward to the point that Rei could fit in better than her. Of course, she'll fit right in with the rest of the cast.
* Kousaka Shigure from ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' should count. She speaks in monotone. [[NotGoodWithPeople She isn't quite...a people person. In fact she seems better with her pet rat, than anyone else]]. It shows when she keeps putting deadly traps around Ryonzanpaku, and doesn't turn them off even with guests (read:non-martial artists). Though her [[EpilepticTrees possible fondness for Kenichi]] might suggest [[DefrostingIceQueen she's beginning to warm up to people]].
* Sunako from ''TheWallflower''.
* Minori in ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' even makes all the other characters stop and stare half the time with her [[ChewingTheScenery refined taste in scenery.]]
* [[MsFanservice Lavinia]] of ''SoukouNoStrain'' draws close to a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} in a cast otherwise mostly filled by fairly normal people. Bizarre plots, showing up in Rambo-style battle gear to 'save' Sara, making out with a random girl in the shower (okay, she thought it was Sara, but ''still'') and running around a ship naked after said incident... and this is thought of as a fairly ''minor'' extension of her normal personality, attributed to stress.
* Tsukuyomi of ''{{Negima}}'' is a PsychoLesbian StalkerWithACrush (and more) and pretty much the only girl in the series who is flat out creepy/crazy. Granted that all the girls here are strange, she's strange in a much [[{{Squick}} different]] way.
** At the "odd/harmless" end of the scale is Zazie Rainyday. Almost completely silent ([[SilentBob but still eloquent]]), she can see ghosts and apparently has a few following her around.
** And for a more neutral character that actually shows up once in awhile, [[ChaoticNeutral Haruna]]. Technically, she should actually be a good guy but manages to come off as more evil/psychotic than Evangeline.
* Quon from ''RahXephon''.
* Kokoro from ''Wallaby'' can be considered strange, or just insane, seeing that she talks to a stuffed animal.
* C.C. from ''CodeGeass'', whose theme song even shares the trope name.
* From ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' we have... Uhm, pretty much the entire friggin' cast? ... Well, except for that [[UnfazedEveryman one girl]]. ([[BerserkButton But don't call her normal]])
* In ''RanmaOneHalf'', pretty much ''every'' girl would be considered unusual in a more real-world setting, seeing as how they include a busty BigEater who's really a '''[[GenderBender guy]]''', a GirlNextDoor who can jog up a flight of stairs while carrying a fridge single-handed, an AnimeChineseGirl from a hidden warrior village who [[BalefulPolymorph turns into a cat when splashed with cold water]] and [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength plows headlong through concrete walls]] [[DynamicEntry rather then use the door]], and a [[WholesomeCrossdresser cross-dressing]] okonomiyaki chef who [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking never goes anywhere without a giant spatula strapped to her back]]. And yet, each and every one of these girls unquestionably considers [[LordErrorProne Kodachi Kuno]] the weirdest person in town, hands down. While played up a bit more in the manga, in either version she has such traits as hunting down potential boyfriends like animals, even going so far as to paralyze them so she can kiss them, while insisting that they are the ones chasing ''her'', spiking just about any food or drink she makes with paralysis or sleeping powder (even her own brother is hesitant to eat them without testing them first) and [[NoblewomansLaugh laughing like a loon]].
* Natalia aka Belarus from AxisPowersHetalia. She's a beautiful, small, dainty-looking blonde girl in ElegantGothicLolita clothes... and she is very, very ''frightening''. So much that she's the only nation-tan able to scare someone as feared as ''Russia'', who is also considered as this trope ([[GenderFlip only male]]).
** Romania is stated to be another RareMaleExample. We get some glimpses of it when we have him tell his best friend Bulgaria about his ''very'' special former boss [[NightmareFetishist with a huge grin.]]
* Tsubaki Kasugano and Yuno Gasai from ''MiraiNikki''. ''To start''.
* ''RosarioToVampire'': In a HaremComedy filled with CuteMonsterGirl[=s=], Mizore the [[AnIcePerson snow-woman]] stands out. She wears an oversized shirt, striped stockings, and loose belts instead of a school uniform, is [[TheStoic stoic]], and a not-terribly CovertPervert who once put blood in her succubus friend's bed to trick her into thinking she'd lost her virginity so she'd have a love-scene with the ChivalrousPervert who was trying to keep her warm ("but why are you shirtless?!"). And I do mean ''scene'': she hid under their bed with a camera!
* Erza Scarlett from ''Manga/FairyTail'', when she's not in SternTeacher Mode.
* Homura Akemi from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' comes across as this at first due to her [[EmotionlessGirl apparent lack of emotion]].
* Many a female character from ''PandoraHearts''.
* Mei Misaki from ''Literature/{{Another}}''.
* Rei Asaka from ''Manga/OniisamaE''. Subverted with [[spoiler: Rei's sister Fukiko]] in the anime; she ''does'' act briefly like a StrangeGirl, but [[spoiler: it's mostly [[BitchInSheepsClothing an act]] to take Nanako by surprise.]]
* Koharu from ''KoharuNoHibi''.
* Akira Takano from SchoolRumble. She's frighteningly GenreSavvy and knows and understands everything that's going on to the point of near-omniscience, and regularly has bizarre, goofy moments (like running in out of nowhere to give Yakumo a high five after she accidentally tosses a box of chocolates through Hanai's window, and then disappearing just as quickly,) all without ever breaking her [[TheStoic stoic expression.]] Also, she may or may not be moonlighting as a secret agent.
** The series also has a Stange ''Guy'' example with Karasuma, who also regularly gets into bizarre antics without ever changing expressions.
* ''LightNovel/JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita'' has Pion. Strange clothing, cat ears, odd speech patterns, blue hair, clearly a robot despite [[BlatantLies protesting otherwise]]... She kind of stands out.
* ''LightNovel/ChuunibyouDemoKoiGaShitai'' has Rikka, who is strange and ''very'' cute.
* Despite her normal clothes and appearance, something about Ayumu Kasuga (also known as Osaka) from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' seems a little off, though not in a bad way. The rest of the cast - and it's full of colourful individuals - agrees that she is the strangest of them, mostly due to her [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} unique imagination]] and strange hobbies (like semantics or standing in the rain).
* Ranze Etoh from Manga/TokimekiTonight.
* Sadaharu Inui from ThePrinceOfTennis is a RareMaleExample. He takes a borderline sadistic pleasure into using {{Gargle Blaster}}s to punish his friends when they fail to complete the Seigaku training menus. ''To start''.
* Hikari/Kari in ''DigimonAdventure''. She mainly gives off this vibe in her debut episode, when she is calmly able to identify a Digimon by name despite (as far as her brother knew) never seeing one before. We later learn that she has some kind of mystical power connected to the Crest of Light, which allows her to be possessed by non-corporeal data entities, power up Digimon, and ''glow.''
* Hange Zoë from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is so fascinated by the eponymous Titans that she often ignores basic safety measures, conducts weird experiments on captured specimen, and generally creeps everyone out with her neverending talks about how interesting the Titans are. For the record, sane people's views on Titans range from trying to kill them on the spot to running the hell away.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* ''LenoreTheCuteLittleDeadGirl'' is one of the stranger Strange Girls. She was embalmed between 1905 and 1910, and has been "alive" since then. While she's not ''necessarily'' evil, Lenore lacks tact, "doesn't do guilt" and frequently, ''accidentally'' [[SugarApocalypse massacres innocent bystanders]].
* Emily the Strange of Hot Topic fame is actually a cynical anarchist who doesn't like other people and sincerely wants to take over the world one day. She doesn't exactly have any plans for it, and kind of assumes that it'll happen through sheer force of attitude.
* Little Gloomy, of the comic of the same name. Kind of. She's the only non-monster in [[MonsterTown Frightsylvania]], which is pretty freaking bizarre. But she's also completely off in a few other ways (she has nails in her house, but no hammer. She needed the nails... but not a hammer.)
* Serenity Rose, one of only 50 witches in the world and a borderline MacGuffinGirl in her ''own'' series.
* Courtney Crumrin, also with her own [[ComicBook/CourtneyCrumrinAndTheNightThings series]].
* {{Supergirl}} in ''Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade'', who has fantasies about herself as the successful and beloved Moon Supergirl (who stops the Moon Beagle Boys from stealing moon money), insists her nostrils are petite, and treats keeping ice cream cold with her ice breath like a dire responsibility.
* Delirium of the Endless of course, from ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. Notable because she manages to be a strange outsider, not only when she travels amongst mortals, but even amongst the other Endless who all are mighty peculiar themselves. The only one who sort of kind of still has a connection to her is Dream, presumably because dreams can get all kinds of weird and non sequitur-ish as well.
* WonderWoman not only fills these criteria in-universe, but is sometimes deemed too strange for many writers to get a firm grasp on.
* Most of the girls of ''Nightmares & Fairytales'' count, if only because they all seem very fond of a creepy (if well-meaning) doll and get mixed up in horrifying supernatural adventures.
* {{X-23}}. Created to be a living weapon, Laura doesn't exactly blend in with her peers. She freaks out her cousin Megan on her first day of school by reciting the protocol for bribing and torturing law enforcement officials ''in French'' when the teacher asks her if she can speak the language. Later in a biology class she corrects the teacher on the amount of blood in the human body before beginning a lecture on poisons [[DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm when he asks if she has anything else to share]]. It really says something when one of the easiest people for her to relate to ''is a vampire''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Works]]
* Kawada Asa from ''Fanfic/FutariWaPrettyCureBlueMoon'' seems to fit. Though her peers pick on her just for watching kids' shows, her strangeness is really found in her ridiculous plans, being either WrongGenreSavvy or DangerouslyGenreSavvy, jumping to weird conclusions mostly due to the above, [[HerCodeNameWasMarySue writing]] [[SelfDeprecatingHumor badfic]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking sleeping through other people's presentations]]. Through it all, she tries to take an IAmWhatIAm attitude, although at times it breaks down and we realize that she ''knows'' how weird she is and that it's cost her a normal life.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' / ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheManWithNoName'', the Doctor and River meet. He calls her "odd." Yes, even a [[TimeAbyss millenia]]-[[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld old]] [[HumanAlien alien]] is weirded out by River.
* In ''Fanfic/TheHearthSeries'', nearly ''every'' girl is strange. Heidi secretly takes pictures for Elizabeta and, by WordOfGod is "not as innocent as she looks". Elizabeta has a major yaoi fetish and a violent temper [[spoiler:and handily dispatches a crook on the fly with a FryingPanOfDoom.]] Both Natalia and Katsuya suffer from different forms of insanity, with Natalia relentlessly stalking her brother and Katsuya [[spoiler:going incredibly violent and possessive if she forgets to take her medication.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Lydia, from ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}''.
* Ladles and gentlethings, give it up for [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Wednesday Addams]]! Just don't ask her to [[TheUnsmile smile]]. Unless it's Wednesday from the '60s show, in which case she's a PerkyGoth.
* Moonie from ''New Waterford Girl''.
* [[TheGirlWithTheDragonTattoo Lisbeth Salander]] fits all aspects of this trope minus the supernatural element.
* Eli from LetTheRightOneIn. Then again, [[ViewerGenderConfusion she might not count]]...
* Esther, the titular {{Orphan}}, is a rare villainous version.
* Ginger and Brigitte Fitzgerald from ''Film/GingerSnaps''.
** From the sequel ''GingerSnapsUnleashed,'' there's Ghost, who seems to think she's in a comic book [[AxCrazy where she's the villain.]]
* Enid, and to some extent Rebecca from GhostWorld.
* {{Hanna}} is a very [[LittleMissBadass strange]] [[ChildSoldier girl]] [[EmotionlessGirl indeed]].
* Vanellope Von Schweetz from ''Disney/WreckItRalph''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* The residents of [[{{Cloudcuckooland}} Wonderland]] consider [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Alice]] a very strange little girl, while ironically they are far more strange than her.
** However, Alice ''is'' very strange by real world standards. She pretends to be multiple people, talks to herself, spent several minutes pondering whether cats eat bats or bats eat cats, gives herself advice and ignores it, plays chess with her cats, tries to get her kitten Dinah to pose like a chess piece, and once ''boxed her own ears'' after cheating in a game ''against herself''.
* Angela from the Literature/InheritanceCycle. She wants to prove that toads don't exist, knows every [[PerfectPoison poison]] and [[HealingPotion potion]] known to man, and always knows what the next big event is, where it is, and somehow always manages to get there on time.
* ''Literature/PippiLongstocking'' a.k.a. Pippilotta Victualia Rullgardina Krusmynta Efraimsdotter Långstrump. Friendly? Yes. Strange? Oh hell yes.
* ''Nate the Great'''s friend Rosamond, something of a cross between {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and PerkyGoth.
* [[Literature/HarryPotter Luna Lovegood]]. Tonks, too, a little bit.
* Anne Shirley of Literature/AnneOfGreenGables is thought to be a Strange Girl when she first arrives at Avonlea but she is just a girl with a vivid imagination that the Avonlea residents aren't used to.
* Literature/{{Coraline}}, the protagonist of NeilGaiman's novel of the same name.
* Mary Katherine (Merricat), the protagonist of Shirley Jackson's ''Literature/WeHaveAlwaysLivedInTheCastle''.
-->"My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise. I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cap mushroom. Everyone else in my family is dead."
* ''{{Tithe}}'' is about one whose strangeness is explained; it turns out she's actually a [[spoiler:changling pixie, and fairies tend to generate]] a weirdness aura. She's not entirely sure whether this is awesome or annoying.
* {{Stargirl}}, by Jerry Spinelli, has the titular Stargirl. Her real name is Susan Caraway, but she decided that Stargirl suits her better. She'll go to school in a kimono, knows everyone's birthday and takes a ukulele to sing Happy Birthday to them in the cafeteria, meditates to be at one with the universe, attends funerals where no one knows her, and follows random people around to watch their lives. No one knows what to make of her.
* ''Olivia Kidney,'' who talks to dead people. The cute pink cover on Ellen Potter's book is misleading; the book is reminiscent of ''Literature/{{Coraline}}'' and similar creepfests.
* The titular character of ''DaisyMiller'' is Europe's local freaky, bizarre American girl.
* Susan Sto Helit in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' is an interesting variation. Goth look? Check. Unusual home life? Check. Connection to the supernatural? ''Big'' check. However, she [[IJustWantToBeNormal Just Wants To Be Normal]], and usually tries to ignore the [[WeirdnessMagnet weirdness that's attracted to her]] in the hope that it will take the hint and ''go away''.
** Tiffany Aching is a straighter example, except that she looks like a perfectly ordinary milkmaid, which seriously irritates her.
* The semi-autobiographical Creator/DianaWynneJones short story "The Jones Girl" paints the author herself as this, as a child.
* The three [[ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents Baudelaire orphans]] are most definitely strange children.
* Perdita Wiguiggan from "Walking Naked" by Alyssa Brugman. She has above-average intelligence, but [[NoSocialSkills isn't exactly good with people]] and frequently acts in a very childlike manner. She is aware of her strangeness, and [[IAmWhatIAm makes no attempt to conceal it]].
* Rachael Elizabeth Dare from PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians. One of the main reasons for her strangeness is [[spoiler: she is a "clear-sighted" mortal, meaning she can see through the Mist, seeing the true world - monsters, greek gods and all - clearer than even demigods]]. Also, in ''The Last Olympian'', we learn [[spoiler: she is fated to be the next Oracle]].
* Maggie in ''How NOT to Be Popular'' by Jennifer Ziegler is like this, only not supernatural. Her parents are hippies who move anywhere they want to and don't really believe in material possessions. She has been to 10 high schools, and when she gets to her 10th she decides she's had enough and pretends to be weird so that nobody will like her and she won't have to worry about leaving behind friends when she moves.
** Invoked, only to be subverted; Maggie ''actively tries'' her best to act wierd, but she's actually a very normal girl, even considering her antics things only a 'loser' would do. The most out-of-the-ordinary things about her are that she's a vegetarian and has only ever watched television. Her ''[[{{HippieParents}} parents]],'' on the other hand...
* Lydia of ''Caught In The Act'' by Peter Moore.
* Raven of ''VampireKisses'' is regarded this way by her peers. Her family and best friend are completely used to her antics, though.
** To be specific, she's a PerkyGoth ActionGirl BlitheSpirit [[VampireVannabe with a]] [[NightmareFetishist thing for]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires.]] (One of whom she actually manages to become the OfficialCouple with.) She doesn't actually ''act'' much different from a regular teenage girl, though.
* The few times AnitaBlake (Vampire Hunter) mentions her childhood, it's usually about how her necromancer powers made her a WeirdnessMagnet, and creeped people out. In addition to the zombie-raising thing, her personality is quirky, a [[OneOfUs little geeky]], extremely ironic and she frequently voices the punchline to jokes you'd have to be in her head to understand ([[FirstPersonSmartass which we are]]).
* Literature/GalaxyOfFear has Tash Arranda, though over the course of the series it tones down a little. She's Force-Sensitive and has always been seen as a bit of a CreepyChild for it.
* Eva's mother Consuelo from ''Literature/EvaLuna'' was regarded as such as a little girl. She grows up as TheStoic, and when she conceives and gives birth to Eva she switches to SugarAndIceGirl.
** Predated by the sisters Rosa and Clara del Valle from ''TheHouseOfTheSpirits''. On one hand, Rosa was both the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman and a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who spent all her time sewing a huge tapestry; on the other Clara was a CreepyChild with PsychicPowers who remained very eccentric after growing up.
* Wednesday Shadowmist in CharlesStross's ''[[TheEschatonSeries Iron Sunrise]]'' fits the trope quite well for a science-fiction character.
* Remedios Buendìa aka "Remedios La Bella" ("Remedios the Beautiful") from ''OneHundredYearsOfSolitude''.
** And Sierva María de todos los Ángeles from ''Of Love and Other Demons''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Phoebe, of course.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'s'' River Tam is ''most'' definitely strange, though she's got [[MindRape her]] [[PsychicPowers reasons]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation for]] [[ThereAreNoTherapists it.]]
* Zora from ''Series/SonnyWithAChance''.
* Portius Wheeler's illegitimate daughter in the miniseries ''The Awakening Land.''
* Amy Pond from ''Series/DoctorWho'' is a grown up strange girl.
** ''Series/DoctorWho'' is full of 'em. They span the gamut from somewhat odd to downright unearthly.
** [[SapientShip I wanted]] [[CoolStarship to see the universe,]] [[TheAllegedCar so I stole]] [[RoboShip a Time Lord]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} and ran away!]]
* Abby from ''Series/{{NCIS}}''.
* Creator/ElviraMistressOfTheDark
* Harper Finkle from ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''.
* Willow in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', at first (before the producers moved away from the "softer side of Sears" look).
* Parker from ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', with many characters asking what is wrong with her or if she is nuts.
* Topanga Lawrence from ''BoyMeetsWorld'' was one of these in the first season, before her character was retooled to be more normal.
* Jess, the titular character played by ZooeyDeschanel in NewGirl is this trope. And quite [[{{Adorkable}} adorkably]] so.
* Cameron in ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', for [[RobotGirl fairly obvious reasons]]. Riley as well, for fairly ''[[FishOutOfTemporalWater less]]'' obvious reasons.
* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' has Imogen, who is a little odd. At first she didn't match this trope as her antics were malicious and dangerous, manipulating people to get what she wanted. Midway through Season 11 her tone shifted and she just became an odd and excitable goofball, and landing her squarely here as she still had just as many quirky and eccentric moments but without any direct result in mind.
* Quinn from ''Series/{{Zoey 101}}'' used to be this in the first few episodes, before her character was written to be normal.

* ''{{Nemi}}'', a goth environmentalist who gets severe brain-damage around hot guys and has childlike glee when it actually snows enough to go sledding.
* Dethany Dendrobia from ''OnTheFastrack''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Opera}} and {{Theatre}}]]
* Senta from Wagner's ''Theatre/TheFlyingDutchman''. She's introduced as being fascinated by a portrait of the Dutchman as other girls work in their spinning wheels and chide her for slacking off, then she freaks the fuck outta them as she tells them about the man itself and swears that she'll redeem him with her love. [[spoiler: And Senta keeps her word... but to do that, she and the Dutchman must end up TogetherInDeath.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* The female Malkavian of ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade: Bloodlines'' is by far one of the most bizarre of any Strange Girl characters. Since her lines are unvoiced, the player is left to fill in the sound from their own imagination, yet she simultaneously gives the impression of complete silence. Not only is the content of her lines head-spinningly insane, these impressions of muteness and derangement combine to make it seem as if the voices in her head are communicating with everyone else, an impression supported by other characters' reactions to her.
* ''{{Persona 3}}'' - It's unclear what, exactly, Elizabeth is (the closest we get to an answer is "Resident"), but she doesn't seem to operate by most human rules. Probably because she [[NoSocialSkills doesn't know what they are.]]
** Her older sister Margaret from {{Persona 4}} is similarly strange, though perhaps not quite so much so.
* Lute from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones''. A very skilled BlackMagicianGirl who destroys monsters "with love", locks herself in the local library, meets those who go recruit her by checking on them to see if they're monsters, etc. Lampshaded if she gets married to CulturedBadass Kyle, with their common ending saying that Kyle's friends were VERY weirded out by his choice in brides.
** Also Sara from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Thracia 776]]'', a cute WhiteMagicianGirl who asks Leaf if she can join him by saying that she can hear his voice in her head and speaks very nonchalantly about how [[spoiler: she hates her grandfather Manfloy for killing her dad before she was even born.]] Even her caretakers in [[spoiler: the Lopto Sect]] regard her as being weird!
-->''"Did she say something to you? Please forget it. She mumbles strange things from time to time. She can be an odd girl at times."''
** And then we have BlackMagicianGirl Tharja from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', who with her {{Yandere}} tendences and her "habit" of cursing or threatening to curse pretty much everyone in the party, blows all of them out of the water.
*** The RareMaleExample in this franchise is Henry, who can't open his mouth without either saying [[BloodKnight how much he loves blood and fighting]] or [[GallowsHumor making morbid jokes.]] Predictably, [[BirdsOfAFeather you can hook him up with Tharja.]]
* VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice. While it should go without saying, one need only remember that the warped, disturbing, just plain ''wrong'' nature of the entire game's world is nothing more than [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind Alice trying to beat her own broken psyche back into submission]].
* Bella of [[{{TCT RPG}} The Colour Tuesday]] looks and sounds like someone out of the 18th century, addresses Kyle as if he were a KnightErrant, and treats Alex like a dirty commoner. The setting is a modern, if [[{{Dystopia}} dystopian]] one.
* [[VideoGame/TheLastStory Mirania]] is described as being a deeply spiritual person... by those who aren't straight-up weirded out by her.
* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 3'' gives us Ingrid, a girl from the far future who talks like an old woman, weirds out someone as calm and collected as Rose (who actually [[LampshadeHanging refers to her as strange]]), and claims that [[spoiler: Bison stole her powers to create the Psycho Drive.]]
** Cammy "Killer Bee" White and the Dolls also come off as very weird, [[TykeBomb and there]] [[AmazonBrigade are REALLY]] [[BrainwashedAndCrazy good reasons]] [[EmotionlessGirl for]] [[EmptyShell it]]. (Though Cammy manages to get better.)
* ''GhostTrick'' gives both Lynn and Memry. Lynn is a young detective who takes dying multiple times in stride, going so far as to berate Sissel for not showing up to resurrect her quickly enough for her liking. She also has a tendency to die in pretty odd ways, including [[spoiler:inadvertently setting off a deathly Rube Goldberg device, and being crushed by ''a giant plastic model of a roasted chicken'']]. Memry, meanwhile, is a waitress [[spoiler:(actually an undercover cop)]] who seems to mistakenly be under the belief there's something going on between here and the bartender, has a fondness for bugging the meals of suspicious patrons, and is even called an "odd girl" by several characters (including ''[[HypocriticalHumor Lynn]]'')
* ''{{Ib}}'': Mary, in stark contrast to the [[TheStoic titular girl]]/[[SilentProtagonist protagonist]] - right down to her visibly more vibrant colour scheme. Understandable, given [[spoiler:she's a painting, the only semblance of human social having been learnt from books]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Miku in ''VisualNovel/AProfile'', contrasting the very normal Miou and the slightly clingy Rizu. While those two are basically normal, Miku has a way of flipping between extremely shy and very cold and dismissive. While this is typical SugarAndIcePersonality behavior, it really stands out in this context.
* [[TVGenius Kotomi Ichinose]] from ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}''. Extremely smart but has virtually no social skills, to the point where she doesn't even acknowledge people talking to her.
* Toko and Stella in ''VisualNovel/KaraNoShoujo.'' The former has a kind of twisted way of thinking and is sort of bewitching which stands in great contrast to the mostly zombie like student body at her school. The latter is a spacey foreigner both in speech and in the way she doesn't seem entirely grounded.
* Ririko in ''VisualNovel/SharinNoKuni'' is ''weird.'' I... she just... Ahem. Her 'interactions' with Touka when she was a child, her apparent ''liking'' of 'teasing' Kenichi, difficulty holding a train of though together and other random bizarre attributes are just the start of it.
** To underscore how weird (and BadAss) she is, for years she undergoes a punishment that is intended to essentially [[GoMadFromTheIsolation drive people insane]] and [[DrivenToSuicide into suicide]]. You'd think, at the very least, her personality would be severely twisted by what she went through, like some of the other heroines, right? Heh, nope. Ririko goes back to acting pretty much the same way she always has after one day more or less deciding she's not gonna put up with it anymore.
* Arcueid from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}''. Sure, all the girls here seem to have superpowers or secret [[RapeAsBackstory tragic pasts]], but she's different in that she doesn't actually seem to ''[[AngstWhatAngst care.]]'' Plus a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and a bit of a ditz. Why is the vampire TykeBomb the one that's [[{{Yandere}} usually]] the least crazy?
* Rin from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', who [[MadArtist paints strange murals which even she can't explain]], [[CrypticConversation speaks in a cryptic manner]], and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} usually has her head in the clouds]]. She was also born [[ArmlessBiped without arms]], but since the game takes place in an academy for disabled students, [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight this isn't seen as that unusual]].
* Maria Ushiromiya from ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' is [[spoiler:seemingly]] on speaking terms with many witches, ghosts, talking animals and other strange beasts, but never seems to have mastered interacting with her fellow human beings. As might be expected of [[spoiler:someone who was [[DeadPersonConversation mentored by her]]]], Ange follows suit.
* Maya, from the ''AceAttorney'' series. She is a seventeen-year-old girl who is more than a little fond of a show marketed for ten-year-old boys, occasionally channels (and shapeshifts into) her [[MsFanservice deceased older sister]], wears her medium robes as streetwear and thinks nothing of it, tries to get some firemen to spray her down with the hose to help with her medium training, and argues with Phoenix over whether it's proper to call a ladder [[InsistentTerminology a ladder or a stepladder]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Marie from T Campbell's {{Quiltbag}}, despite not having any super natural abilities (as the setting is more slice-of-life). She makes strange word-salad entries in her journal, has a vast collection of empty bottles strewn about her dorm room, and it is frequently referenced that she is "bad at talking." She even has the look.
* {{minus}}. That is all.
* Tegan Cassidy in HolidayWars is a very strange girl and doesn't fit in with anyone from her high school, as seen in [[http://www.th3rdworld.com/web-comic/Holiday-Wars/episode/Holiday-Wars-Episode-6 this strip]]
* Antimony Carver of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' is a far more "normal" Strange Girl. She's very [[TheStoic stoic]] and has [[ShellShockedSenior deep-seated issues]], but is caring, friendly and ready to lend a hand whether you're a robot, fairy, or ghost. She's visually set apart from her peers by her [[RedHeadedHero red hair]] and the unusual lipstick and [[BodyMotifs eye-shadow]] she wears.
** Zimmy might also qualify. Her [[HadesShaded strange skin tone]] and [[BlackEyesOfEvil eyes covered in black gunk]] make her stand out visually, she wears her school uniform all the time, she's afflicted with the unfortunate combination of some kind of RealityWarper powers and horrifying hallucinations, she [[TheInsomniac doesn't sleep]], she's got a PsychicLink with another girl who serves as her PowerNullifier... Honestly, the stuff that can be quantified is probably just the tip of the iceberg. There's a lot of mysteries and open questions surrounding her, not to mention what a certain encounter with her did to [[TouchedByVorlons Jack]]...
*** Hilariously enough, it seems to have mostly (after sorting out spider related weirdness) made him fall for her, a neat little send up of the trope, considering how Antimony herself, and even Jack, talk about it. (ie. Her strangeness, and jerkiness, is not particularly romanticized by either.)
* Zoe from the webcomic ''BlueZombie.''
* Millie from ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie''.
* ''HoneydewSyndrome'' has the 1950's-obsessed Odette.
* Fio from ''[[http://www.revenant-braves.schala.net Circumstances of the Revenant Braves]]''.
* Molly from ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob.''
* Toni Ipres from ''HannaIsNotABoysName''. She is fashionable, talented, upbeat and friendly, but sports some rather strange behavior due to being [[spoiler:a werewolf.]]
* {{Drowtales}}' FourthWallObserver [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?id=608 Kiel'ndia]] is often {{lampshade}}d as this.
** It's almost CatchPhrase for her and her best friend Naal'suul to have the exchange "you're weird", and "I know."
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Original]]
* Now even SurvivalOfTheFittest has one, of all places! Version 4's Anna Chase is... a little off. To get an idea, she is an EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette with some level of PerkyGoth to her, that is obsessed with horror movies, and is a ''massive'' {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. At one point (in her introductory thread in pre-game) she tells her best friend not to eat her brains (ItMakesSenseInContext... sort of). And that's not even going into some of her other personality traits. Overall, she is generally seen as somewhat eccentric by other characters.
** And then there's Lily Ainsworth, also from v4. She's even ''more'' of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. Her father was a historian, which caused her to grow up in a British castle most of her life due to his work, and she herself has a tendency to ramble off certain facts as an attempt at conversation, while generally having NoSocialSkills. Add in her odd dress sense and her perky nature, and most characters also see her as a little odd.
* [[http://www.endling.deviantart.com Endling]] gives us his beloved [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Endling+Lilith#/d1iidy1 Lilith,]] [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Endling+Lilith#/dyrry1 who is indeed, quite strange]], though [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Endling+Ree#/dxmdm0 Ree]] certainly is strange, she's not at Lilith-esque levels.
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick is a CuteButPsycho WomanChild. And even when she's not in that mental state, she's still pretty freakish.
** We also have BFF Nella, The Makeover Fairy, and Dr. Tease, who are all ''very'' strange in their own special ways.
* WebVideo/ObscurusLupa may not be as messed up as The Nostalgia Chick, but she's a major {{Cloudcuckoolander}} WomanChild with a rather dark and twisted sense of humour.
* Rebecca Stone from WebVideo/DemoReel. She's a NiceGirl, but accidentally let her cat get into the washing machine, would have been willing to kidnap an eighty year old woman just so they could make the ''Blue Patches'' sequel perfect for Donnie, and refers to said movie get destroyed as it getting "killed".
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s Jade Harley is pretty much constantly upbeat and energetic, and is her friends all seem to think she is a normal, if slightly excitable, girl. [[spoiler:She lives on an uncharted island in the somewhere in the Pacific, which was discovered by her grandfather, a business tycoon and noted polymath. [[PosthumousCharacter After his death]], she taxidermied his body, as is the Harley family tradition, and mounted his corpse in the foyer. She is a narcoleptic, and [[FaintingSeer frequently has visions in her sleep]]. She is currently cared for by Becquerel, her [[BigFriendlyDog Big Friendly]] [[BigBadassWolf Badass]] [[RealityWarper God Dog]].]]
** And to a lesser extent, Rose Lalonde, what with her [[TheStoic general stoicism]] and love of psychoanalysis, wizard fanfiction, [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness overly elaborate diction]] and [[EldritchAbomination the zoologically dubious]].
** Any of the female trolls would qualify as a StrangeGirl were it not for how weird all of the trolls are and how {{Troperiffic}} ''Homestuck'' is in general, but Aradia and Vriska stand out. Aradia spends most of the story as an [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionless]] StringyHairedGhostGirl who sets the trolls' side of the plot in motion because the voices of the dead told her to. Vriska's a filthy-rich serial killer with a fixation on spiders and a ComplexityAddiction who manages to scare most of the other trolls despite them being a race of bloodthirsty {{Jerkass}}es. The two of them also [[ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl have the strongest]] PsychicPowers of all the trolls, not to mention [[spoiler:being the only two trolls to make it to [[CameBackStrong god tier]]]].
*** There's also [[TeamMom Kanaya]], who is extremely strange within [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Troll society]]. Not only can she stand sunlight, but she actually enjoys it; she is one of the only trolls that actually cares about fashion and even makes her own clothes; she famously wields a chainsaw disguised as a tube of lipstick. Even her [[AlienBlood blood]] is strange, as her particular shade of green is probably rarer than any other troll in the cast save Feferi and [[spoiler:Karkat]]. As it turns out, her role in the trolls' session is analogous to Jade's, so being a strange girl might be a qualifying characteristic for Heroes of Space. [[spoiler:She's actually a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Rainbow Drinker]], which explains a lot of the strangeness.]]
* Jade Sinclair (Generator) of the WhateleyUniverse. Petite, of Japanese descent, and looking only about ten even though she is fourteen or so. She is also Jinn Sinclair (it's complicated) who claims to be Jade's dead older sister. She is also a cabbit and a Hello Kitty compact and a living lawn mower blade. Like I said, it's complicated. Even the other members of Team Kimba think she's wacky.
* Veronica Carter of ShadowhunterPeril is...odd. Very odd. She's capable of being quite badass, only usually she comes off as a MotorMouth GenkiGirl who DrivesLikeCrazy (her vehicle of choice is a tank). Not to mention that she also has a BagOfHolding that holds enough [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin demonic pies]] to be a small army.
** Her conversations are usually strange, too. She went through a phase where she would randomly give [[OnlySaneMan Die]][[ButtMonkey ter]] an object to hold, then take it back some time later or forget that she gave him something in the first place.
*** It's shown in Roleplay/UpworldDownworld that when Veronica was much younger, she was a very stoic CreepyChild. Go figure.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* Mandy of ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' is like Emily, planning on world conquest. She's ruthless, not entirely without compassion or standards, but ''cross her and you will '''suffer.'''''
* ''GrowingUpCreepie'' has Creepie, an orphan ''[[RaisedByWolves raised by insects]]''. All things considered, her down to earth attitude is either a flying contrast to her upbringing or a completely logical result.
* ''RubyGloom'' fits this trope perfectly, being bright, cheerful and friendly in every situation. The only thing that can get her down is bright colors. The strange thing is that the merchandise on which the show was based kind of gave Ruby a very melancholic feel, but whatever.
* Miss Spider from ''Film/JamesAndTheGiantPeach'' Interestingly, she displays some maternal feelings towards James.
* Izzy from ''TotalDrama Island'' fits this trope rather well and is a popular character because of it.
** Sierra from ''World Tour'' can creep out many a contestant, since she's a fan of the franchise.
** ''Revenge Of The Island'''s Dawn is on the mellow end of the scale.
* Gaz from ''InvaderZim''.
* Mabel Pines of ''GravityFalls''.
** Her friend Candy Chiu also fits into this.
* Pi is a rare male example from ''SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries.'' He always wears a hat that covers his eyes and seems obsessed with aliens and paranormal.
* [[LiloAndStitch Lilo]], whose classmates reject her for being weird...The creepy homemade doll, making voodoo on her ''hula halau''-mates using spoons and pickle jars (''"My friends need to be punished"''), Elvis obsession, and worship of a fish (who apparently controls the weather) don't help her case. Fortunately, Lilo has good friends in a bunch of aliens who came to Earth. And a hovercraft!
** Hell, one could even say that's the main reason none of the islanders give a rats ass about there being a shitload of aliens all over the place. After some of the weird stuff Lilo has gotten into in the past, they are just used to strange shit happening on a regular basis.
** Well, that and they're Hawaiians, whether by birth or by locale, and Hawaiians tend to have "hang loose" embedded in their DNA somewhere.
* Heloise on ''JimmyTwoShoes''. A MadScientist EnfanteTerrible who works for {{Satan}}.
* {{Daria}} is pretty strange, and also may be considered an EmotionlessGirl.
* Ellen from ''EdgarAndEllen''. Her twin brother Edgar would qualify as a male version, as he is just as strange.
* Increasingly as a result of SanitySlippage, Meg from ''FamilyGuy''.
* Jinora from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is normally a CuteBookworm, but her view of romantic relationships seems to be... ''special'', to say at least. She swoons at the thought of one of her story heroines ''commiting genocide and suicide'' over being rejected by her LoveInterest.

-->-- '''Lydia''', ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}''

%% One quote. Please place additional entries on the quotes tab.

She's not normal, that's for sure. The only thing you can pin down about the
Strange Girl is that she's hard to pin down (when she isn't doing a disambigution page for the pinning, that is). She's visually distinct from her normal peer group, typically in both physical appearance (she's likely to be an EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette[=/=]RavenHairIvorySkin) and dress, but sometimes only one of the two. As far as demeanor is concerned, she can be anything from BunnyEarsLawyer, a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, TheStoic, a [[TakeOverTheWorld world conqueror]], TheMessiah, TheOphelia, an EmotionlessGirl... or [[TheQuietOne quiet]], [[StraightMan sensible]] and even friendly. Anything goes as long as it stands out from the series' norm.

The unifying trait of all Strange Girls is that they are protagonists and most importantly, are ''different'' from their peers (though [[LonersAreFreaks rarely]] will she be [[FriendlessBackground completely friendless]]). Her family or home life will be... ''interesting'' to say the least. Usually she is [[WeirdnessMagnet in touch]] with the supernatural aspects of her setting, even if she doesn't have powers herself. Because of this tendency to experience strange and supernatural adventures, it's not uncommon for their social clique to grow into a veritable MonsterMash of friends they've helped in various adventures, though they'll likely start out the series with at least one or two [[UnfazedEveryman Unfazed Everymen]] as completely human friends. Before long she's likely to have [[SeenItAll seen so much weirdness]] little if anything will faze her.

This character is very likely to be a {{Goth}} or show noticeable Goth influences, both in style of dress and in personality. The Goth subculture is particularly well-suited to this character type because it's made up of [[NightmareFetishist people who enjoy strange, morbid things]], on top of the fact that being different from the mainstream is one of the things that defines all countercultural subcultures. That last part means that it would also be quite reasonable for a StrangeGirl to be a member of the punk or {{Emo}}[[note]] The actual subculture, not the caricature of it that named the EmoTeen trope.[[/note]] subcultures, among others.

Compare ManicPixieDreamGirl, ReiAyanamiExpy, or TheOphelia. Contrast TheSnarkKnight.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya. "Normal humans don't interest me. If anyone here is an alien, a time traveler, slider, or an esper, then come find me! That is all."
** Sasaki might be vying for her position here. She seems far more normal, but is the one who actually does weird Kyon out due to always speaking with male pronouns when talking to boys, and the subject of most of her conversations being bizarre philosophical stuff.
* The titular character of ''{{Acony}}'', a slightly weird, morbid, purple-haired girl that claims to be 20-something. It doesn't help that ghosts frequently appear around her home.
* Urabe Mikoto, the titular character of the manga ''MysteriousGirlfriendX''. Urabe being really, really, ''really'' weird is pretty much the entire point of the manga -- Urabe is [[TheStoic somewhat unemotional]] and unsocial to the point of being a complete outcast, but seems to have some form of psychic powers -- specifically, she knows without a doubt that she will lose her virginity to the main character, Tsubaki Akira (the thought causes her to enter hysterics out of the blue during class), and shares an empathic connection with him that is initiated by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything spit]] -- a common trick she uses on him when she suspects him of dirty thoughts is to stick her finger in his mouth and suck on it before he can react -- she then instantly knows exactly what he was thinking. Similarly, Tsubaki is addicted to her spit, and has to have a dose a day or he suffers withdrawal. She can also cut things apart with superhuman speed and precision with the craft scissors she carries around in the waistband of her panties.
* It's hard to say whether Senjougahara Hitagi from ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' is {{Tsundere}}, {{Yandere}} or something else altogether, but either way she's unbelievably strange. She considers herself more powerful than [[Manga/DragonBall Shen Long]] and [[ImprobableWeaponUser carries a entire classroom worth of stationery]] [[HammerSpace concealed on her person]]. She promises her boyfriend that he'll be the first person she ever murders, and if someone else kills him then she'll avenge him - and she considers this ''romantic.''
* Rei Ayanami, of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion.'' Right from the start, her [[HeroicAlbino albinism]], [[TheStoic emotionlessness]] and ExtremeDoormat personality make her a ''highly'' strange girl. It might have to do with her being a [[spoiler:[[CloningBlues clone]]]] with a [[spoiler:[[HalfHumanHybrid hybrid mix of human and angel DNA]]]] who may or may not have a [[spoiler:{{soul}}.]]
** She does have a soul. It's the soul of [[spoiler:Lilith]], however.
*** [[spoiler:In fact, it's a major point in ''Rebuild'' that the new Rei clone is different than "Shinji's" Rei, precisely because she doesn't have a soul.]]
** And then there's Mari Makinami from ''RebuildOfEvangelion'', who [[BloodKnight loves fighting]], is [[NightmareFetishist fond of the smell of LCL]] and is socially awkward to the point that Rei could fit in better than her. Of course, she'll fit right in with the rest of the cast.
* Kousaka Shigure from ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' should count. She speaks in monotone. [[NotGoodWithPeople She isn't quite...a people person. In fact she seems better with her pet rat, than anyone else]]. It shows when she keeps putting deadly traps around Ryonzanpaku, and doesn't turn them off even with guests (read:non-martial artists). Though her [[EpilepticTrees possible fondness for Kenichi]] might suggest [[DefrostingIceQueen she's beginning to warm up to people]].
* Sunako from ''TheWallflower''.
* Minori in ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' even makes all the other characters stop and stare half the time with her [[ChewingTheScenery refined taste in scenery.]]
* [[MsFanservice Lavinia]] of ''SoukouNoStrain'' draws close to a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} in a cast otherwise mostly filled by fairly normal people. Bizarre plots, showing up in Rambo-style battle gear to 'save' Sara, making out with a random girl in the shower (okay, she thought it was Sara, but ''still'') and running around a ship naked after said incident... and this is thought of as a fairly ''minor'' extension of her normal personality, attributed to stress.
* Tsukuyomi of ''{{Negima}}'' is a PsychoLesbian StalkerWithACrush (and more) and pretty much the only girl in the series who is flat out creepy/crazy. Granted that all the girls here are strange, she's strange in a much [[{{Squick}} different]] way.
** At the "odd/harmless" end of the scale is Zazie Rainyday. Almost completely silent ([[SilentBob but still eloquent]]), she can see ghosts and apparently has a few
following her around.
** And for a more neutral character that actually shows up once
tropes.

*CloudCuckooLander: A person of either gender who behaves
in awhile, [[ChaoticNeutral Haruna]]. Technically, she should actually be a good guy but manages to come off as more evil/psychotic than Evangeline.
* Quon from ''RahXephon''.
* Kokoro from ''Wallaby'' can be considered strange, or just insane, seeing that she talks to a stuffed animal.
* C.C. from ''CodeGeass'',
strange and/or spacey mannor
*ManicPixieDreamGirl: A energetic and risky taking female
whose theme song even shares the trope name.
* From ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' we have... Uhm, pretty much the entire friggin' cast? ... Well, except for that [[UnfazedEveryman one girl]]. ([[BerserkButton But don't call her normal]])
* In ''RanmaOneHalf'', pretty much ''every'' girl would be considered unusual in
plot purpose is breaking a more real-world setting, seeing as how they include a busty BigEater jaded male out of his funk.
*TheOphelia: A tragically beautiful female
who's really a '''[[GenderBender guy]]''', a GirlNextDoor who can jog up a flight of stairs while carrying a fridge single-handed, an AnimeChineseGirl from a hidden warrior village who [[BalefulPolymorph turns into a cat when splashed with cold water]] and [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength plows headlong through concrete walls]] [[DynamicEntry rather then use the door]], and a [[WholesomeCrossdresser cross-dressing]] okonomiyaki chef who [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking never goes anywhere without a giant spatula strapped to her back]]. And yet, each and every one of these girls unquestionably considers [[LordErrorProne Kodachi Kuno]] the weirdest person in town, hands down. While played up a bit more in the manga, in either version she has such traits as hunting down potential boyfriends like animals, even going so far as to paralyze them so she can kiss them, while insisting that they are the ones chasing ''her'', spiking just about any food harmlessly insane or drink she makes with paralysis or sleeping powder (even her own brother AxCrazy.
*MysticalWaif: A female who's
is hesitant to eat them without testing them first) and [[NoblewomansLaugh laughing like a loon]].
* Natalia aka Belarus from AxisPowersHetalia. She's a beautiful, small, dainty-looking blonde girl
in ElegantGothicLolita clothes... and she is very, very ''frightening''. So much that she's the only nation-tan able to scare someone as feared as ''Russia'', who is also considered as this trope ([[GenderFlip only male]]).
** Romania is stated to be another RareMaleExample. We get some glimpses of it when we have him tell his best friend Bulgaria about his ''very'' special former boss [[NightmareFetishist with a huge grin.]]
* Tsubaki Kasugano and Yuno Gasai from ''MiraiNikki''. ''To start''.
* ''RosarioToVampire'': In a HaremComedy filled with CuteMonsterGirl[=s=], Mizore the [[AnIcePerson snow-woman]] stands out. She wears an oversized shirt, striped stockings, and loose belts instead of a school uniform, is [[TheStoic stoic]], and a not-terribly CovertPervert who once put blood in her succubus friend's bed to trick her into thinking she'd lost her virginity so she'd have a love-scene
touch with the ChivalrousPervert who was trying to keep her warm ("but why are you shirtless?!"). And I do mean ''scene'': she hid under their bed with a camera!
* Erza Scarlett from ''Manga/FairyTail'', when she's not in SternTeacher Mode.
* Homura Akemi from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' comes across as this at first due to her [[EmotionlessGirl apparent lack
supernatural
*NightmareFetishist: A person
of emotion]].
* Many a female character from ''PandoraHearts''.
* Mei Misaki from ''Literature/{{Another}}''.
* Rei Asaka from ''Manga/OniisamaE''. Subverted with [[spoiler: Rei's sister Fukiko]] in the anime; she ''does'' act briefly like a StrangeGirl, but [[spoiler: it's mostly [[BitchInSheepsClothing an act]] to take Nanako by surprise.]]
* Koharu from ''KoharuNoHibi''.
* Akira Takano from SchoolRumble. She's frighteningly GenreSavvy and knows and understands everything that's going on to the point of near-omniscience, and regularly has bizarre, goofy moments (like running in out of nowhere to give Yakumo a high five after she accidentally tosses a box of chocolates through Hanai's window, and then disappearing just as quickly,) all without ever breaking her [[TheStoic stoic expression.]] Also, she may or may not be moonlighting as a secret agent.
** The series also has a Stange ''Guy'' example with Karasuma, who also regularly gets into bizarre antics without ever changing expressions.
* ''LightNovel/JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita'' has Pion. Strange clothing, cat ears, odd speech patterns, blue hair, clearly a robot despite [[BlatantLies protesting otherwise]]... She kind of stands out.
* ''LightNovel/ChuunibyouDemoKoiGaShitai'' has Rikka, who is strange and ''very'' cute.
* Despite her normal clothes and appearance, something about Ayumu Kasuga (also known as Osaka) from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' seems a little off, though not in a bad way. The rest of the cast - and it's full of colourful individuals - agrees that she is the strangest of them, mostly due to her [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} unique imagination]] and strange hobbies (like semantics or standing in the rain).
* Ranze Etoh from Manga/TokimekiTonight.
* Sadaharu Inui from ThePrinceOfTennis is a RareMaleExample. He takes a borderline sadistic pleasure into using {{Gargle Blaster}}s to punish his friends when they fail to complete the Seigaku training menus. ''To start''.
* Hikari/Kari in ''DigimonAdventure''. She mainly gives off this vibe in her debut episode, when she is calmly able to identify a Digimon by name despite (as far as her brother knew) never seeing one before. We later learn that she has some kind of mystical power connected to the Crest of Light, which allows her to be possessed by non-corporeal data entities, power up Digimon, and ''glow.''
* Hange Zoë from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is so fascinated by the eponymous Titans that she often ignores basic safety measures, conducts weird experiments on captured specimen, and generally creeps everyone out with her neverending talks about how interesting the Titans are. For the record, sane people's views on Titans range from trying to kill them on the spot to running the hell away.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* ''LenoreTheCuteLittleDeadGirl'' is one of the stranger Strange Girls. She was embalmed between 1905 and 1910, and has been "alive" since then. While she's not ''necessarily'' evil, Lenore lacks tact, "doesn't do guilt" and frequently, ''accidentally'' [[SugarApocalypse massacres innocent bystanders]].
* Emily the Strange of Hot Topic fame is actually a cynical anarchist who doesn't like other people and sincerely wants to take over the world one day. She doesn't exactly have any plans for it, and kind of assumes that it'll happen through sheer force of attitude.
* Little Gloomy, of the comic of the same name. Kind of. She's the only non-monster in [[MonsterTown Frightsylvania]], which is pretty freaking bizarre. But she's also completely off in a few other ways (she has nails in her house, but no hammer. She needed the nails... but not a hammer.)
* Serenity Rose, one of only 50 witches in the world and a borderline MacGuffinGirl in her ''own'' series.
* Courtney Crumrin, also with her own [[ComicBook/CourtneyCrumrinAndTheNightThings series]].
* {{Supergirl}} in ''Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade'', who has fantasies about herself as the successful and beloved Moon Supergirl (who stops the Moon Beagle Boys from stealing moon money), insists her nostrils are petite, and treats keeping ice cream cold with her ice breath like a dire responsibility.
* Delirium of the Endless of course, from ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. Notable because she manages to be a strange outsider, not only when she travels amongst mortals, but even amongst the other Endless who all are mighty peculiar themselves. The only one who sort of kind of still has a connection to her is Dream, presumably because dreams can get all kinds of weird and non sequitur-ish as well.
* WonderWoman not only fills these criteria in-universe, but is sometimes deemed too strange for many writers to get a firm grasp on.
* Most of the girls of ''Nightmares & Fairytales'' count, if only because they all seem very fond of a creepy (if well-meaning) doll and get mixed up in horrifying supernatural adventures.
* {{X-23}}. Created to be a living weapon, Laura doesn't exactly blend in with her peers. She freaks out her cousin Megan on her first day of school by reciting the protocol for bribing and torturing law enforcement officials ''in French'' when the teacher asks her if she can speak the language. Later in a biology class she corrects the teacher on the amount of blood in the human body before beginning a lecture on poisons [[DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm when he asks if she has anything else to share]]. It really says something when one of the easiest people for her to relate to ''is a vampire''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Works]]
* Kawada Asa from ''Fanfic/FutariWaPrettyCureBlueMoon'' seems to fit. Though her peers pick on her just for watching kids' shows, her strangeness is really found in her ridiculous plans, being
either WrongGenreSavvy or DangerouslyGenreSavvy, jumping to weird conclusions mostly due to the above, [[HerCodeNameWasMarySue writing]] [[SelfDeprecatingHumor badfic]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking sleeping through other people's presentations]]. Through it all, she tries to take an IAmWhatIAm attitude, although at times it breaks down and we realize that she ''knows'' how weird she is and that it's cost her a normal life.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' / ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheManWithNoName'', the Doctor and River meet. He calls her "odd." Yes, even a [[TimeAbyss millenia]]-[[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld old]] [[HumanAlien alien]] is weirded out
gender whose fascinated/aroused by River.
* In ''Fanfic/TheHearthSeries'', nearly ''every'' girl is strange. Heidi secretly takes pictures for Elizabeta and, by WordOfGod is "not as innocent as she looks". Elizabeta has a major yaoi fetish and a violent temper [[spoiler:and handily dispatches a crook on the fly with a FryingPanOfDoom.]] Both Natalia and Katsuya suffer from different forms of insanity, with Natalia relentlessly stalking her brother and Katsuya [[spoiler:going incredibly violent and possessive if she forgets to take her medication.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Lydia, from ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}''.
* Ladles and gentlethings, give it up for [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Wednesday Addams]]! Just don't ask her to [[TheUnsmile smile]]. Unless it's Wednesday from the '60s show, in which case she's a PerkyGoth.
* Moonie from ''New Waterford Girl''.
* [[TheGirlWithTheDragonTattoo Lisbeth Salander]] fits all aspects of this trope minus the supernatural element.
* Eli from LetTheRightOneIn. Then again, [[ViewerGenderConfusion she might not count]]...
* Esther, the titular {{Orphan}}, is a rare villainous version.
* Ginger and Brigitte Fitzgerald from ''Film/GingerSnaps''.
** From the sequel ''GingerSnapsUnleashed,'' there's Ghost, who seems to think she's in a comic book [[AxCrazy where she's the villain.]]
* Enid, and to some extent Rebecca from GhostWorld.
* {{Hanna}} is a very [[LittleMissBadass strange]] [[ChildSoldier girl]] [[EmotionlessGirl indeed]].
* Vanellope Von Schweetz from ''Disney/WreckItRalph''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* The residents of [[{{Cloudcuckooland}} Wonderland]]
what others consider [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Alice]] a very strange little girl, while ironically they are far more strange than her.
** However, Alice ''is'' very strange by real world standards. She pretends
creepy/scary/disgusting etc.

All wicks
to be multiple people, talks to herself, spent several minutes pondering whether cats eat bats or bats eat cats, gives herself advice and ignores it, plays chess with her cats, tries to get her kitten Dinah to pose like a chess piece, and once ''boxed her own ears'' after cheating in a game ''against herself''.
* Angela from the Literature/InheritanceCycle. She wants to prove that toads don't exist, knows every [[PerfectPoison poison]] and [[HealingPotion potion]] known to man, and always knows what the next big event is, where it is, and somehow always manages to get there on time.
* ''Literature/PippiLongstocking'' a.k.a. Pippilotta Victualia Rullgardina Krusmynta Efraimsdotter Långstrump. Friendly? Yes. Strange? Oh hell yes.
* ''Nate the Great'''s friend Rosamond, something of a cross between {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and PerkyGoth.
* [[Literature/HarryPotter Luna Lovegood]]. Tonks, too, a little bit.
* Anne Shirley of Literature/AnneOfGreenGables is thought to be a Strange Girl when she first arrives at Avonlea but she is just a girl with a vivid imagination that the Avonlea residents aren't used to.
* Literature/{{Coraline}}, the protagonist of NeilGaiman's novel of the same name.
* Mary Katherine (Merricat), the protagonist of Shirley Jackson's ''Literature/WeHaveAlwaysLivedInTheCastle''.
-->"My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise. I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cap mushroom. Everyone else in my family is dead."
* ''{{Tithe}}'' is about one whose strangeness is explained; it turns out she's actually a [[spoiler:changling pixie, and fairies tend to generate]] a weirdness aura. She's not entirely sure whether
this is awesome or annoying.
* {{Stargirl}}, by Jerry Spinelli, has the titular Stargirl. Her real name is Susan Caraway, but she decided that Stargirl suits her better. She'll go to school in a kimono, knows everyone's birthday and takes a ukulele to sing Happy Birthday to them in the cafeteria, meditates to be at one with the universe, attends funerals where no one knows her, and follows random people around to watch their lives. No one knows what to make of her.
* ''Olivia Kidney,'' who talks to dead people. The cute pink cover on Ellen Potter's book is misleading; the book is reminiscent of ''Literature/{{Coraline}}'' and similar creepfests.
* The titular character of ''DaisyMiller'' is Europe's local freaky, bizarre American girl.
* Susan Sto Helit in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' is an interesting variation. Goth look? Check. Unusual home life? Check. Connection to the supernatural? ''Big'' check. However, she [[IJustWantToBeNormal Just Wants To Be Normal]], and usually tries to ignore the [[WeirdnessMagnet weirdness that's attracted to her]] in the hope that it will take the hint and ''go away''.
** Tiffany Aching is a straighter example, except that she looks like a perfectly ordinary milkmaid, which seriously irritates her.
* The semi-autobiographical Creator/DianaWynneJones short story "The Jones Girl" paints the author herself as this, as a child.
* The three [[ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents Baudelaire orphans]] are most definitely strange children.
* Perdita Wiguiggan from "Walking Naked" by Alyssa Brugman. She has above-average intelligence, but [[NoSocialSkills isn't exactly good with people]] and frequently acts in a very childlike manner. She is aware of her strangeness, and [[IAmWhatIAm makes no attempt to conceal it]].
* Rachael Elizabeth Dare from PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians. One of the main reasons for her strangeness is [[spoiler: she is a "clear-sighted" mortal, meaning she can see through the Mist, seeing the true world - monsters, greek gods and all - clearer than even demigods]]. Also, in ''The Last Olympian'', we learn [[spoiler: she is fated to be the next Oracle]].
* Maggie in ''How NOT to Be Popular'' by Jennifer Ziegler is like this, only not supernatural. Her parents are hippies who move anywhere they want to and don't really believe in material possessions. She has been to 10 high schools, and when she gets to her 10th she decides she's had enough and pretends to be weird so that nobody will like her and she won't have to worry about leaving behind friends when she moves.
** Invoked, only to be subverted; Maggie ''actively tries'' her best to act wierd, but she's actually a very normal girl, even considering her antics things only a 'loser' would do. The most out-of-the-ordinary things about her are that she's a vegetarian and has only ever watched television. Her ''[[{{HippieParents}} parents]],'' on the other hand...
* Lydia of ''Caught In The Act'' by Peter Moore.
* Raven of ''VampireKisses'' is regarded this way by her peers. Her family and best friend are completely used to her antics, though.
** To be specific, she's a PerkyGoth ActionGirl BlitheSpirit [[VampireVannabe with a]] [[NightmareFetishist thing for]] [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires.]] (One of whom she actually manages to become the OfficialCouple with.) She doesn't actually ''act'' much different from a regular teenage girl, though.
* The few times AnitaBlake (Vampire Hunter) mentions her childhood, it's usually about how her necromancer powers made her a WeirdnessMagnet, and creeped people out. In addition to the zombie-raising thing, her personality is quirky, a [[OneOfUs little geeky]], extremely ironic and she frequently voices the punchline to jokes you'd have to be in her head to understand ([[FirstPersonSmartass which we are]]).
* Literature/GalaxyOfFear has Tash Arranda, though over the course of the series it tones down a little. She's Force-Sensitive and has always been seen as a bit of a CreepyChild for it.
* Eva's mother Consuelo from ''Literature/EvaLuna'' was regarded as such as a little girl. She grows up as TheStoic, and when she conceives and gives birth to Eva she switches to SugarAndIceGirl.
** Predated by the sisters Rosa and Clara del Valle from ''TheHouseOfTheSpirits''. On one hand, Rosa was both the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman and a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who spent all her time sewing a huge tapestry; on the other Clara was a CreepyChild with PsychicPowers who remained very eccentric after growing up.
* Wednesday Shadowmist in CharlesStross's ''[[TheEschatonSeries Iron Sunrise]]'' fits the trope quite well for a science-fiction character.
* Remedios Buendìa aka "Remedios La Bella" ("Remedios the Beautiful") from ''OneHundredYearsOfSolitude''.
** And Sierva María de todos los Ángeles from ''Of Love and Other Demons''

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Phoebe, of course.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'s'' River Tam is ''most'' definitely strange, though she's got [[MindRape her]] [[PsychicPowers reasons]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation for]] [[ThereAreNoTherapists it.]]
* Zora from ''Series/SonnyWithAChance''.
* Portius Wheeler's illegitimate daughter in the miniseries ''The Awakening Land.''
* Amy Pond from ''Series/DoctorWho'' is a grown up strange girl.
** ''Series/DoctorWho'' is full of 'em. They span the gamut from somewhat odd to downright unearthly.
** [[SapientShip I wanted]] [[CoolStarship to see the universe,]] [[TheAllegedCar so I stole]] [[RoboShip a Time Lord]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} and ran away!]]
* Abby from ''Series/{{NCIS}}''.
* Creator/ElviraMistressOfTheDark
* Harper Finkle from ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''.
* Willow in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', at first (before the producers moved away from the "softer side of Sears" look).
* Parker from ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', with many characters asking what is wrong with her or if she is nuts.
* Topanga Lawrence from ''BoyMeetsWorld'' was one of these in the first season, before her character was retooled to be more normal.
* Jess, the titular character played by ZooeyDeschanel in NewGirl is this trope. And quite [[{{Adorkable}} adorkably]] so.
* Cameron in ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', for [[RobotGirl fairly obvious reasons]]. Riley as well, for fairly ''[[FishOutOfTemporalWater less]]'' obvious reasons.
* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' has Imogen, who is a little odd. At first she didn't match this trope as her antics were malicious and dangerous, manipulating people to get what she wanted. Midway through Season 11 her tone shifted and she just became an odd and excitable goofball, and landing her squarely here as she still had just as many quirky and eccentric moments but without any direct result in mind.
* Quinn from ''Series/{{Zoey 101}}'' used to be this in the first few episodes, before her character was written to be normal.

* "Little Miss Strange"" by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
--> "Little miss Strange came out of the darkness \\
Walked across my head, I stood beneath the light \\
I'm talkin' 'bout the dream I had the other night"
* The ''very'' [[CreepyChild creepy young girl]] who lipsynches in the video for Portishead's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vozNQX6Ye1A All mine]]"
* The girl being sung of in Lonestar's "Unusually Unusual".
--> "She had a tattoo above her ankle of a Trident submarine \\
She says it symbolizes awesome power hidden deep within our dreams\\
And I knew the shoes she wasn't wearing, they fit her just right\\
And she said, 'Hey man, did you know, we used to be brothers in some past life?'"
* Cameo (the "Word Up" guys) have a song called "She's Strange".
--> ''In room 123, she's elusive you see''\\
''Like the invisible man in drag''\\
''And when you come to meet her, you'll never greet her''\\
''She'll be waving her skirt as a flag!''

''Had her own definition of cool''\\
''She lived in her own world''\\

* Senta from Wagner's ''Theatre/TheFlyingDutchman''. She's introduced as being fascinated by a portrait of the Dutchman as other girls work in their spinning wheels and chide her for slacking off, then she freaks the fuck outta them as she tells them about the man itself and swears that she'll redeem him with her love. [[spoiler: And Senta keeps her word... but to do that, she and the Dutchman must end up TogetherInDeath.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* The female Malkavian of ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade: Bloodlines'' is by far one of the most bizarre of any Strange Girl characters. Since her lines are unvoiced, the player is left to fill in the sound from their own imagination, yet she simultaneously gives the impression of complete silence. Not only is the content of her lines head-spinningly insane, these impressions of muteness and derangement combine to make it seem as if the voices in her head are communicating with everyone else, an impression supported by other characters' reactions to her.
* ''{{Persona 3}}'' - It's unclear what, exactly, Elizabeth is (the closest we get to an answer is "Resident"), but she doesn't seem to operate by most human rules. Probably because she [[NoSocialSkills doesn't know what they are.]]
** Her older sister Margaret from {{Persona 4}} is similarly strange, though perhaps not quite so much so.
* Lute from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones''. A very skilled BlackMagicianGirl who destroys monsters "with love", locks herself in the local library, meets those who go recruit her by checking on them to see if they're monsters, etc. Lampshaded if she gets married to CulturedBadass Kyle, with their common ending saying that Kyle's friends were VERY weirded out by his choice in brides.
** Also Sara from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Thracia 776]]'', a cute WhiteMagicianGirl who asks Leaf if she can join him by saying that she can hear his voice in her head and speaks very nonchalantly about how [[spoiler: she hates her grandfather Manfloy for killing her dad before she was even born.]] Even her caretakers in [[spoiler: the Lopto Sect]] regard her as being weird!
-->''"Did she say something to you? Please forget it. She mumbles strange things from time to time. She can be an odd girl at times."''
** And then we have BlackMagicianGirl Tharja from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', who with her {{Yandere}} tendences and her "habit" of cursing or threatening to curse pretty much everyone in the party, blows all of them out of the water.
*** The RareMaleExample in this franchise is Henry, who can't open his mouth without either saying [[BloodKnight how much he loves blood and fighting]] or [[GallowsHumor making morbid jokes.]] Predictably, [[BirdsOfAFeather you can hook him up with Tharja.]]
* VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice. While it
page should go without saying, one need only remember that the warped, disturbing, just plain ''wrong'' nature of the entire game's world is nothing more than [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind Alice trying be changed to beat her own broken psyche back into submission]].
* Bella of [[{{TCT RPG}} The Colour Tuesday]] looks and sounds like someone out of the 18th century, addresses Kyle as if he were a KnightErrant, and treats Alex like a dirty commoner. The setting is a modern, if [[{{Dystopia}} dystopian]] one.
* [[VideoGame/TheLastStory Mirania]] is described as being a deeply spiritual person... by those who aren't straight-up weirded out by her.
* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 3'' gives us Ingrid, a girl from the far future who talks like an old woman, weirds out someone as calm and collected as Rose (who actually [[LampshadeHanging refers to her as strange]]), and claims that [[spoiler: Bison stole her powers to create the Psycho Drive.]]
** Cammy "Killer Bee" White and the Dolls also come off as very weird, [[TykeBomb and there]] [[AmazonBrigade are REALLY]] [[BrainwashedAndCrazy good reasons]] [[EmotionlessGirl for]] [[EmptyShell it]]. (Though Cammy manages to get better.)
* ''GhostTrick'' gives both Lynn and Memry. Lynn is a young detective who takes dying multiple times in stride, going so far as to berate Sissel for not showing up to resurrect her quickly enough for her liking. She also has a tendency to die in pretty odd ways, including [[spoiler:inadvertently setting off a deathly Rube Goldberg device, and being crushed by ''a giant plastic model of a roasted chicken'']]. Memry, meanwhile, is a waitress [[spoiler:(actually an undercover cop)]] who seems to mistakenly be under the belief there's something going on between here and the bartender, has a fondness for bugging the meals of suspicious patrons, and is even called an "odd girl" by several characters (including ''[[HypocriticalHumor Lynn]]'')
* ''{{Ib}}'': Mary, in stark contrast to the [[TheStoic titular girl]]/[[SilentProtagonist protagonist]] - right down to her visibly more vibrant colour scheme. Understandable, given [[spoiler:she's a painting, the only semblance of human social having been learnt from books]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Miku in ''VisualNovel/AProfile'', contrasting the very normal Miou and the slightly clingy Rizu. While those two are basically normal, Miku has a way of flipping between extremely shy and very cold and dismissive. While this is typical SugarAndIcePersonality behavior, it really stands out in this context.
* [[TVGenius Kotomi Ichinose]] from ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}''. Extremely smart but has virtually no social skills, to the
point where she doesn't even acknowledge people talking to her.
* Toko and Stella in ''VisualNovel/KaraNoShoujo.'' The former has a kind of twisted way of thinking and is sort of bewitching which stands in great contrast to the mostly zombie like student body at her school. The latter is a spacey foreigner both in speech and in the way she doesn't seem entirely grounded.
* Ririko in ''VisualNovel/SharinNoKuni'' is ''weird.'' I... she just... Ahem. Her 'interactions' with Touka when she was a child, her apparent ''liking'' of 'teasing' Kenichi, difficulty holding a train of though together and other random bizarre attributes are just the start of it.
** To underscore how weird (and BadAss) she is, for years she undergoes a punishment that is intended to essentially [[GoMadFromTheIsolation drive people insane]] and [[DrivenToSuicide into suicide]]. You'd think, at the very least, her personality would be severely twisted by what she went through, like some of the other heroines, right? Heh, nope. Ririko goes back to acting pretty much the same way she always has after one day more or less deciding she's not gonna put up with it anymore.
* Arcueid from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}''. Sure, all the girls here seem to have superpowers or secret [[RapeAsBackstory tragic pasts]], but she's different in that she doesn't actually seem to ''[[AngstWhatAngst care.]]'' Plus a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and a bit of a ditz. Why is the vampire TykeBomb the one that's [[{{Yandere}} usually]] the least crazy?
* Rin from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', who [[MadArtist paints strange murals which even she can't explain]], [[CrypticConversation speaks in a cryptic manner]], and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} usually has her head in the clouds]]. She was also born [[ArmlessBiped without arms]], but since the game takes place in an academy for disabled students, [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight this isn't seen as that unusual]].
* Maria Ushiromiya from ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' is [[spoiler:seemingly]] on speaking terms with many witches, ghosts, talking animals and other strange beasts, but never seems to have mastered interacting with her fellow human beings. As might be expected of [[spoiler:someone who was [[DeadPersonConversation mentored by her]]]], Ange follows suit.
* Maya, from the ''AceAttorney'' series. She is a seventeen-year-old girl who is more than a little fond of a show marketed for ten-year-old boys, occasionally channels (and shapeshifts into) her [[MsFanservice deceased older sister]], wears her medium robes as streetwear and thinks nothing of it, tries to get some firemen to spray her down with the hose to help with her medium training, and argues with Phoenix over whether it's proper to call a ladder [[InsistentTerminology a ladder or a stepladder]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Marie from T Campbell's {{Quiltbag}}, despite not having any super natural abilities (as the setting is more slice-of-life). She makes strange word-salad entries in her journal, has a vast collection of empty bottles strewn about her dorm room, and it is frequently referenced that she is "bad at talking." She even has the look.
* {{minus}}. That is all.
* Tegan Cassidy in HolidayWars is a very strange girl and doesn't fit in with anyone from her high school, as seen in [[http://www.th3rdworld.com/web-comic/Holiday-Wars/episode/Holiday-Wars-Episode-6 this strip]]
* Antimony Carver of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' is a far more "normal" Strange Girl. She's very [[TheStoic stoic]] and has [[ShellShockedSenior deep-seated issues]], but is caring, friendly and ready to lend a hand whether you're a robot, fairy, or ghost. She's visually set apart from her peers by her [[RedHeadedHero red hair]] and the unusual lipstick and [[BodyMotifs eye-shadow]] she wears.
** Zimmy might also qualify. Her [[HadesShaded strange skin tone]] and [[BlackEyesOfEvil eyes covered in black gunk]] make her stand out visually, she wears her school uniform all the time, she's afflicted with the unfortunate combination of some kind of RealityWarper powers and horrifying hallucinations, she [[TheInsomniac doesn't sleep]], she's got a PsychicLink with another girl who serves as her PowerNullifier... Honestly, the stuff that can be quantified is probably just the tip of the iceberg. There's a lot of mysteries and open questions surrounding her, not to mention what a certain encounter with her did to [[TouchedByVorlons Jack]]...
*** Hilariously enough, it seems to have mostly (after sorting out spider related weirdness) made him fall for her, a neat little send up of the trope, considering how Antimony herself, and even Jack, talk about it. (ie. Her strangeness, and jerkiness, is not particularly romanticized by either.)
* Zoe from the webcomic ''BlueZombie.''
* Millie from ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie''.
* ''HoneydewSyndrome'' has the 1950's-obsessed Odette.
* Fio from ''[[http://www.revenant-braves.schala.net Circumstances of the Revenant Braves]]''.
* Molly from ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob.''
* Toni Ipres from ''HannaIsNotABoysName''. She is fashionable, talented, upbeat and friendly, but sports some rather strange behavior due to being [[spoiler:a werewolf.]]
* {{Drowtales}}' FourthWallObserver [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?id=608 Kiel'ndia]] is often {{lampshade}}d as this.
** It's almost CatchPhrase for her and her best friend Naal'suul to have the exchange "you're weird", and "I know."
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Web Original]]
* Now even SurvivalOfTheFittest has one, of all places! Version 4's Anna Chase is... a little off. To get an idea, she is an EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette with some level of PerkyGoth to her, that is obsessed with horror movies, and is a ''massive'' {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. At one point (in her introductory thread in pre-game) she tells her best friend not to eat her brains (ItMakesSenseInContext... sort of). And that's not even going into some of her other personality traits. Overall, she is generally seen as somewhat eccentric by other characters.
** And then there's Lily Ainsworth, also from v4. She's even ''more'' of a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. Her father was a historian, which caused her to grow up in a British castle most of her life due to his work, and she herself has a tendency to ramble off certain facts as an attempt at conversation, while generally having NoSocialSkills. Add in her odd dress sense and her perky nature, and most characters also see her as a little odd.
* [[http://www.endling.deviantart.com Endling]] gives us his beloved [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Endling+Lilith#/d1iidy1 Lilith,]] [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Endling+Lilith#/dyrry1 who is indeed, quite strange]], though [[http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Endling+Ree#/dxmdm0 Ree]] certainly is strange, she's not at Lilith-esque levels.
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick is a CuteButPsycho WomanChild. And even when she's not in that mental state, she's still pretty freakish.
** We also have BFF Nella, The Makeover Fairy, and Dr. Tease, who are all ''very'' strange in their own special ways.
* WebVideo/ObscurusLupa may not be as messed up as The Nostalgia Chick, but she's a major {{Cloudcuckoolander}} WomanChild with a rather dark and twisted sense of humour.
* Rebecca Stone from WebVideo/DemoReel. She's a NiceGirl, but accidentally let her cat get into the washing machine, would have been willing to kidnap an eighty year old woman just so they could make the ''Blue Patches'' sequel perfect for Donnie, and refers to said movie get destroyed as it getting "killed".
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s Jade Harley is pretty much constantly upbeat and energetic, and is her friends all seem to think she is a normal, if slightly excitable, girl. [[spoiler:She lives on an uncharted island in the somewhere in the Pacific, which was discovered by her grandfather, a business tycoon and noted polymath. [[PosthumousCharacter After his death]], she taxidermied his body, as is the Harley family tradition, and mounted his corpse in the foyer. She is a narcoleptic, and [[FaintingSeer frequently has visions in her sleep]]. She is currently cared for by Becquerel, her [[BigFriendlyDog Big Friendly]] [[BigBadassWolf Badass]] [[RealityWarper God Dog]].]]
** And to a lesser extent, Rose Lalonde, what with her [[TheStoic general stoicism]] and love of psychoanalysis, wizard fanfiction, [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness overly elaborate diction]] and [[EldritchAbomination the zoologically dubious]].
** Any of the female trolls would qualify as a StrangeGirl were it not for how weird all of the trolls are and how {{Troperiffic}} ''Homestuck'' is in general, but Aradia and Vriska stand out. Aradia spends most of the story as an [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionless]] StringyHairedGhostGirl who sets the trolls' side of the plot in motion because the voices of the dead told her to. Vriska's a filthy-rich serial killer with a fixation on spiders and a ComplexityAddiction who manages to scare most of the other trolls despite them being a race of bloodthirsty {{Jerkass}}es. The two of them also [[ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl have the strongest]] PsychicPowers of all the trolls, not to mention [[spoiler:being the only two trolls to make it to [[CameBackStrong god tier]]]].
*** There's also [[TeamMom Kanaya]], who is extremely strange within [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Troll society]]. Not only can she stand sunlight, but she actually enjoys it; she is one of the only trolls that actually cares about fashion and even makes her own clothes; she famously wields a chainsaw disguised as a tube of lipstick. Even her [[AlienBlood blood]] is strange, as her particular shade of green is probably rarer than any other troll in the cast save Feferi and [[spoiler:Karkat]]. As it turns out, her role in the trolls' session is analogous to Jade's, so being a strange girl might be a qualifying characteristic for Heroes of Space. [[spoiler:She's actually a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Rainbow Drinker]], which explains a lot of the strangeness.]]
* Jade Sinclair (Generator) of the WhateleyUniverse. Petite, of Japanese descent, and looking only about ten even though she is fourteen or so. She is also Jinn Sinclair (it's complicated) who claims to be Jade's dead older sister. She is also a cabbit and a Hello Kitty compact and a living lawn mower blade. Like I said, it's complicated. Even the other members of Team Kimba think she's wacky.
* Veronica Carter of ShadowhunterPeril is...odd. Very odd. She's capable of being quite badass, only usually she comes off as a MotorMouth GenkiGirl who DrivesLikeCrazy (her vehicle of choice is a tank). Not to mention that she also has a BagOfHolding that holds enough [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin demonic pies]] to be a small army.
** Her conversations are usually strange, too. She went through a phase where she would randomly give [[OnlySaneMan Die]][[ButtMonkey ter]] an object to hold, then take it back some time later or forget that she gave him something in the first place.
*** It's shown in Roleplay/UpworldDownworld that when Veronica was much younger, she was a very stoic CreepyChild. Go figure.

* Mandy of ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' is like Emily, planning on world conquest. She's ruthless, not entirely without compassion or standards, but ''cross her and you will '''suffer.'''''
* ''GrowingUpCreepie'' has Creepie, an orphan ''[[RaisedByWolves raised by insects]]''. All things considered, her down to earth attitude is either a flying contrast to her upbringing or a completely logical result.
* ''RubyGloom'' fits this
whichever trope perfectly, being bright, cheerful and friendly in every situation. The only thing that can get her down is bright colors. The strange thing is that the merchandise on which the show was based kind of gave Ruby a very melancholic feel, but whatever.
* Miss Spider from ''Film/JamesAndTheGiantPeach'' Interestingly, she displays some maternal feelings towards James.
* Izzy from ''TotalDrama Island'' fits this trope rather well and is a popular character because of it.
** Sierra from ''World Tour'' can creep out many a contestant, since she's a fan of the franchise.
** ''Revenge Of The Island'''s Dawn is on the mellow end of the scale.
* Gaz from ''InvaderZim''.
* Mabel Pines of ''GravityFalls''.
** Her friend Candy Chiu also fits into this.
* Pi is a rare male example from ''SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries.'' He always wears a hat that covers his eyes and seems obsessed with aliens and paranormal.
* [[LiloAndStitch Lilo]], whose classmates reject her for being weird...The creepy homemade doll, making voodoo on her ''hula halau''-mates using spoons and pickle jars (''"My friends need to be punished"''), Elvis obsession, and worship of a fish (who apparently controls the weather) don't help her case. Fortunately, Lilo has good friends in a bunch of aliens who came to Earth. And a hovercraft!
** Hell, one could even say that's the main reason none of the islanders give a rats ass about there being a shitload of aliens all over the place. After some of the weird stuff Lilo has gotten into in the past,
they are just used to strange shit happening on a regular basis.
** Well, that and they're Hawaiians, whether by birth or by locale, and Hawaiians tend to have "hang loose" embedded in their DNA somewhere.
* Heloise on ''JimmyTwoShoes''. A MadScientist EnfanteTerrible who works for {{Satan}}.
* {{Daria}} is pretty strange, and also may be considered an EmotionlessGirl.
* Ellen from ''EdgarAndEllen''. Her twin brother Edgar would qualify as a male version, as he is just as strange.
* Increasingly as a result of SanitySlippage, Meg from ''FamilyGuy''.
* Jinora from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is normally a CuteBookworm, but her view of romantic relationships seems to be... ''special'', to say at least. She swoons at the thought of one of her story heroines ''commiting genocide and suicide'' over being rejected by her LoveInterest.

** Zimmy might also qualify. Her strange skin tone and eyes covered in black gunk make her stand out visually, she wears her school uniform all the time, she's afflicted with the unfortunate combination of some kind of RealityWarper powers and horrifying hallucinations, she [[TheInsomniac doesn't sleep]], she's got a PsychicLink with another girl who serves as her PowerNullifier... Honestly, the stuff that can be quantified is probably just the tip of the iceberg. There's a lot of mysteries and open questions surrounding her, not to mention what a certain encounter with her did to [[TouchedByVorlons Jack]]...

* Antimony Carver of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' is a far more "normal" Strange Girl. She's very [[TheStoic stoic]] and has [[ShellShockedSenior deep-seated issues]], but is caring, friendly and ready to lend a hand whether you're a robot, fairy, or ghost. She's visually set apart from her peers by the unusual lipstick and [[BodyMotifs eye-shadow]] she wears.
