-->'''Betty Boop:''' Yeah... what a lucky "goyul".

She is always surrounded by [[BrokenBird an air of melancholy.]] This could be because she herself is [[FourTemperamentEnsemble melancholic]], or because the lonely male hero experiences a connection with her while she is singing but cannot have her. She tends to be out of the main hero's reach perhaps because she is a dangerous FemmeFatale, because she is already involved with someone else (usually a villain), or simply because she is so aloof. This character can be very useful for highlighting a feeling of loneliness, because her sultry songs will often create a feeling of a connection between the singer [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench (which it means in French)]] and the listener, but circumstances will prevent that feeling from becoming a true connection. For that reason, this trope is a favorite of FilmNoir, a genre that thrives on a feeling of melancholy and stoic loneliness.
