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

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

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

If this is an RPG setting, she's almost always going to be the FragileSpeedster, thus [[PersonalityPowers fitting her personality]].

If a work of fiction gives its characters [[FlowerMotifs symbolic flowers]] that represent their personalities, the Genki Girl will likely get [[SunnySunflowerDisposition the sunflower]] while her animal is the [[KindheartedCatLover cat]], though her energy won't necessarily make her go {{crazy|CatLady}}.

Whatever you do, don't give her [[CaffeineBulletTime too much coffee, cola or sugar, and definitely teach her that hard drugs are very bad]]. This is why she may be [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl preferred with somebody who is practical]].

Voice actors sometimes become famous for just being able to keep up the role.

Compare FistPump and HotBlooded. Compare ThePollyanna for endless optimism and cheer rather than energy. Contrast EmotionlessGirl.

{{Keet}} boys usually, but not always, fall into this trope as well.

Often seen performing TheGlomp.

!!Female examples:

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
%% * ''Anime/ALittleSnowFairySugar'': The titular character, much to Saga's initial annoyance. Saga's cousin Kanon would also qualify.
%% * ''Manga/AiNoShintairiku'': Nikotama Sara from acts like this to come off as cute.
%% * ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'': Chika.
%% * ''Manga/AimForTheAce'': Hiromi is a gregarious and cheerful schoolgirl, an early version of the trope.
%% * ''Alice in Sexland'': Bunny pours energy and passion into everything she does, though she's pretty chaste compared to everyone else in the series.
%% * ''Anime/AngelBeats'': Yui. Justified in that [[spoiler:in life, she was a bedridden cripple, so now that she has functional limbs, she's damn well going to use them]].
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'': [[{{Shorttank}} Seychelles]] and [[PluckyGirl Taiwan]]. The former has some elements of TheDitz and openly admits to [[ThePrankster prank-calling]] [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling her former boss]] England; the latter is a MotorMouth and the [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl Energetic Younger Sibling to the rest of the Asian countries]]. Both seem to highlight this element in their character songs, with Seychelles humming her song while the music isn't even playing and Taiwan singing about making problems go "poof".
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'': Self-described "wildcat high school girl" Tomo (pictured above). We know she's a Genki Girl because "Genki!" is the first thing she says.
%% ** Yukari-sensei is what happens when the Genki Girl grows up. [[OneOfTheKids Or doesn't]].
* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'': Miria Harvent, who comes with an [[{{Keet}} equally-hyperactive]] boyfriend and [[OutlawCouple partner in crime]], Isaac Dian. They seem to have an amplifying effect on each other (at least, their ''seiyuu'' do). Since they're inseparable for their entire screen time, it's impossible to tell how genki they are individually.
%% * ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'': Suruga Kanbaru fits this trope well.
%% * ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}'': Julie.
%% * ''Manga/BambooBlade'': KendoTeamCaptain Kirino Chiba is easily the most ''genki'' member of her squad.
* ''Manga/BeachStars'': [[http://ja.gram.pl/upl/blogi/98610/img_wpisy/2012_47/BeachStars.png Iruka]], the main heroine, is a ball of energy in constant motion.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Even as an adult, Nelliel had her moments of hyperactivity, particularly when she mood-swung from calm and melancholic after blowing up Nnoitra, to ecstatic and girly before glomp-humping Ichigo.
** Chizuru is very, very excitable when around Orihime. Tatsuki does her best to keep her in line but there's only so much she can do.
** Masaki in the past. She is naturally cheery, outgoing and rather energetic, but will also use that attitude to hide her troubles, such as her despair over knowing she's being groomed to marry Ryuuken.
%% ** [[MoralityPet Yachiru Kusajishi]] is Kenpachi's very own pink puffball of genkiness.
%% ** Mashiro, which makes a hilarious contrast to [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Kensei]].
%% ** Senna from the first [[TheMovie movie]], ''Memories of Nobody''.
%% ** Mizuho, especially where Ikkaku is concerned.
%% * ''Anime/BloodPlus'': Lulu is usually upbeat and enthusiastic, even after [[spoiler:she becomes the [[LastOfHerKind last survivor of the Schiff]]]].
%% * ''Anime/CandyBoy'': Sakuya. Particularly with respect to her [[StalkerWithACrush pursuit of]] [[SchoolGirlLesbians Kanade]].
%% * ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'': Nakuru Akizuki, who is also a ManipulativeBastard and a technically-genderless spirit being rather than a human girl, though she more or less refers to herself as a girl.
%% ** Meiling also applies in the anime adaptation. Sakura herself is also a toned down variant. Both cases are more than enough to overwhelm Syaoran.
%% * ''Manga/ChisSweetHome'': Chi, the energetic kitten.
%% * ''Manga/ChronoCrusade'':
%% ** Rosette is what happens when you give a Genki Girl a loaded weapon. [[StuffBlowingUp It's probably a good idea to run]].
%% ** On the villains' side is Shader, a {{catgirl}} [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]]. In the manga, she has her serious moments, but in the anime, she's 100% PerkyFemaleMinion.
%% * ''Anime/CodeGeass'':
%% ** Kaguya Sumeragi is like this, as well as the {{Ojou}}. She also proves herself to be [[WiseBeyondTheirYears smarter than you'd guess]], [[spoiler:becoming the head chairman of the UFN council]].
%% ** Milly Ashford is another great example, except she is also the StudentCouncilPresident at the head of an AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil who is only too happy to find the smallest excuse to start a SchoolFestival. And when that happens, run.
%% ** [[EmotionlessGirl Anya Alstreim]] also becomes one of these after [[spoiler:Marianne [[GrandTheftMe takes over her body]]]].
%% * ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': Radical Edward, aka "Ed", has high energy.
%% * ''Manga/CrossManage'': Misora Toyoguchi.
%% * ''Manga/DGrayMan'': Road Kamelot is a particularly creepy version.
%% * ''Manga/DNAngel'': Mio Hio and Towa-chan.
%% * ''Manga/DeathNote'': Misa.
* ''Manga/DoctorSlump'': Arale Norimaki, with a dose of SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaids, CuteBruiser, and ''definitely'' {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. She's as energetic as she is powerful.
%% * ''Manga/DragonHalf'': Mink and Pia.
%% * ''Manga/ElementalGelade'': Cisqua when near money.
%% * ''Anime/ErgoProxy'': Pino, who is really more like a Genki Robot that looks like a girl.
* ''Anime/TimeOfEve'': Akiko acts like this when the main characters first meet her. They automatically assumed she was human, only to discover that, in public, she is an {{emotionless|Girl}} RobotGirl. This is a façade, though, so being a Genki Girl really is her natural personality.
* ''Manga/ExcelSaga''. Excel takes "Genki" to previously [[UpToEleven unseen heights]]. Even modern {{Genki Girl}}s are tame compared to her.
-->'''Il Palazzo''': ''"Ahh, Excel. Wastefully cheerful as always, I see."''
* ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'': Haruhara Haruko calms down for maybe thirty seconds an episode, and sometimes not even that much.
%% * ''Manga/FairyTail'': Lisanna Strauss. Lucy could also qualify.
%% * ''Anime/FlameOfRecca'': Renge is a strong contender for the title.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Winry Rockbell. She goes full-on BishieSparkle, {{Squee}}, and arm-wavy mode whenever she sees something cute or acting cute (Elysia Hughes weeded this mode out of her the first few minutes after she met her), something's caught her interest (mainly anything involving automail--e.g., Rush Valley or a shopping spree in Central), or a rather vicious (and comic) argument with Ed (again, mainly over automail). The times that she's ''not'' in genki mode are when she's realized something tragic or an error in her construction (e.g., learning about [[spoiler:Maes's death]] or discovering the missing screw in Ed's newly-constructed automail arm ''after'' he left to go investigate Laboratory #5), or when she's concentrating on building a new automail body part.
%% * ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'': Miaka.
* ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'': Asuka is rather cheerful and lively, especially when she cheers Hayato on. However, her genki-ness has been toned down in the [=OVA=]s when the dangers of racing becomes more apparent.
%% * ''[[VideoGame/GalaxyAngel Galaxy]] [[Anime/GalaxyAngel Angel]] II'': Nano-Nano Pudding.
%% * ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'': The Tachikomas are Genki ''[[SpiderTank Tanks]]''. This actually becomes a plot point in the first season, as having a combat vehicles behave like this is fairly alarming to the human characters.
%% * ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'': Mileina Vashti. Louise Halevy ''used'' to be one, but [[BrokenBird later she's not so genki anymore]]. And Nena Trinity looked like a Genki Girl, but was actually CuteAndPsycho, with heaps of THAT INGRATING VOICE!!!
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'':
** The title character is an avalanche of Genki Girlness who drags everyone nearby along with her. This is expressly stated in the audio drama's main song "First Goodbye", which is, in-canon, written by Haruhi herself (and just as autobiographical as "Lost My Music") with the line "Igai to genki!".
** Tsuruya-san, a minor character, is something of a MotorMouth and a cheerful Genki Girl, emphasis on the "cheerful". She's a natural co-conspirator with Haruhi when Haruhi isn't working with Little Sister.
%% ** In the 9th/10th novel, Yasumi absolutely qualifies. No surprise, considering her true identity: [[spoiler:Haruhi's subconsciousness]].
%% * ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'': Sakuya, a genki girl/{{tsundere}} combo.
* ''Manga/HidamariSketch'': Miyako. While she's prone to sleep in class and can sometimes sleep for 12 hours in one go, once she ''is'' awake, she's quite energetic. One episode shows her coming into Yuno's apartment, showing no signs of having awakened two minutes ago; another has Yuno pointing out that she's hyper even in the morning. "That was quick!" is a common phrase applied to her actions, whether she's gobbling down food or making art (usually impromptu). But despite all her teasing, she's a likable person, a good friend...and, surprisingly, does well in school!
* ''Manga/{{Hyakko}}'': Torako. She's of the Genki-Ditz blend, considering she makes her debut by leaping out of a window. It's a second story window, but she definitely chooses the quickest way to get from point A to point B.
* ''Literature/{{Hyouka}}'': An interesting example in Chitanda Eru, who is so vivacious and bubbly that [[BrilliantButLazy Oreki]] often perceives her as having an inner glow.
* ''Manga/KOn'': Ritsu essentially holds the club together with her enthusiasm.
* ''Anime/KaleidoStar'': Sora is amazingly energetic. Emphasis on '''amazingly'''. Her friends Rosetta Passel and Marion Begnini try to keep up with her, but they still have a way to go.
%% * ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'': Ayu, contrasting with [[HeavySleeper Nayuki]], [[{{Tsundere}} Makoto]], [[IllGirl Shiori]], and [[EmotionlessGirl Mai]].
%% * ''Anime/KidouTenshiAngelicLayer'': Tamayo.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'': Mako Mankanshoku is one of the genkiest girls in anime and is the perfect foil to resident angry HotBlooded {{Badass}} Ryuko Matoi. Whenever Mako opens her mouth, you can be sure that she will say something either crazy, hilarious or both sooner or later. Really, this girl is a walking CrowningMomentOfFunny.
* ''Manga/KimiNiTodoke'': Chizu is hyperactive to the point where she involuntarily knocks people down in the school corridors and gets irritated [[LampshadeHanging comments]] from other characters on a regular basis.
* ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'': Kurata Sana is the archetypal Genki Girl. The FanVid "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc8dFL9Mk0o Caffeine Ecomium]]" gives some inkling of just how energetic she is; none of the sequences in this video have been sped up.
* ''Manga/HighSchoolDebut'': Haruna is so genki she's almost a BadassNormal. One of her recurring sentences is "let's work hard!"--cue high-fiving everyone, running around doing more physical work than the guys, and tiring everyone out. Oh, yeah--and she can put up a physical fight with guys, including potential assaulters. Her over-the-top genki-ness is arguably part of what makes her such an endearing character.
* ''Manga/KoufukuGraffiti'': Kirin is very upbeat at every moment. Shiina compares looking at her to watching the circus in Chapter 24.
* ''VisualNovel/{{Lamune}}'': Hikari. It's noted by the male lead (her cousin) that she acts much like a kid, despite being a year older than him.
* ''Manga/LoveHina'': Kaolla Suu. When she latches onto Keitaro in the second volume of the manga, the other girls note that Motoko's the only one with the stamina to keep up with her for very long.
%% * ''Anime/LuckyStar'':
%% ** You could consider Akira Kogami to fit this trope, but you aren't seeing her [[{{Yandere}} true personality]].
%% ** Yui would also count. Minami muses that innocent little Yutaka will take on her personality as time goes on, upon meeting her for the first time.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
%% ** Reinforce Zwei, in contrast to the original angst-filled Reinforce.
%% ** Nanoha herself when she's younger. "ATTACK WITH MAXIMUM POWER!!!". [[CharacterDevelopment Some events and age]] makes her OlderAndWiser.
%% ** And then we have Subaru (a die-hard fan of Nanoha herself). At least until [[BerserkButton someone hurts her sister]]...
%% ** And Wendi of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers]].
%% ** Lutecia Alpine in ''[=ViVid=]''. Yes, really, THAT {{Emotionless|Girl}} DarkMagicalGirl Lutecia from ''[=StrikerS=]''. And she is LargeHam now, to boot.
** ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaINNOCENT'': [[SparedByTheAdaptation Alicia Testarossa]] is shown to be ''very'' enthusiastic and energetic about nearly everything, in sharp contrast to her calmer sister Fate.
* ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'': To a lesser degree, Hikaru Shidou. She's incredibly friendly, energetic, and upbeat. It's even more so in the anime, where she has some NoIndoorVoice moments.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': Several characters count; Makie is the most notable example. The entirety of [[ElaborateUniversityHigh Mahora Academy]] is described as such, [[{{Keet}} even the boys]], by the ''teachers themselves''. It was stated that during a previous SchoolFestival, they arranged an academy-wide game of ''tag'', and afterwards decided not to do that again because there were too many ''injuries''. That year, they were going for a (slightly) more sedate game of Hide-N-Seek, until the BigBad of that arc provided an army of robots, and they decided to unleash the students on ''them'' instead.
%% * ''Anime/MaiHime'': Mikoto subverts this trope nicely by simultaneously being a DarkMagicalGirl. (Push this type of subversion even further, and you wind up with the PerkyGoth.)
%% * ''Anime/ManabiStraight'': Manabi.
%% * ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy'': Miki.
%% * ''Manga/MinamiKe'': Kana, a [[TheDitz ditzy]] version, steals the show from her LittleMissSnarker and OneeSama sisters.
%% * ''Misaki Number One'': Misaki.
* ''Manga/MyLovelyGhostKana'': The titular CuteGhostGirl is a strange example. In the back story, she gruesomely [[DrivenToSuicide took her own life]], stabbing herself in the chest many times, and her ghost remained behind, trapped in the apartment building where she died. By the time the real story begins many years later, Kana has [[GhostAmnesia forgotten most details of her life]], including why she decided to end it. When UnluckyEverydude Daikichi (unable to afford to live anywhere better) moves into the allegedly haunted building, he has a hard time accepting that this cheerful, energetic girl (overjoyed at finally having some company) is actually a ghost.
%% * ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'': Both of the girls, but especially Mei. Justified in that they're a couple of kids exited about a new house and [[WeirdnessCensor giant, friendly nature-gods]].
* ''Manga/{{Nana}}'': Hachi is called a puppy by her roommate for her energy and desire to please.
%% * ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': In a number of LighterAndSofter adaptations, ''Rei, of all people'', gets this treatment.
%% ** The first ''Girlfriend of Steel'' GaidenGame keeps her [[EmotionlessGirl in character]]. The set-in-episode-26's-alternate-universe sequel, however, plays this trope straight.
%% ** She gets the same treatment in the alternate universe manga ''Manga/NeonGenesisEvangelionAngelicDays'' (also based on episode 26's AU).
%% ** Asuka Langley Soryuu and Misato Katsuragi qualify. Their counterparts in the ''Rebuild'' movies are a little more serious.
%% * ''Anime/{{Niea 7}}'': Niea arguably qualifies, even though she mixes her energetic nature with being a total {{jerkass}}.
%% * ''Anime/NurseWitchKomugi'': Komugi Nakahara.
%% * ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'': Hana-chan and Doremi (and a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters few others]]).
%% * ''Manga/OniisamaE'': Tomoko Arikura, in contrast to her best friend [[ShrinkingViolet Nanako]].
%% * ''Anime/PaniPoniDash'': Himeko. [[VerbalTic Maho]]!
%% * ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': A bunch, human and Pokémon alike, though ''Best Wishes'' character Iris takes it even further (she's this way [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite in the games]], too).
%% ** Bianca, your female rival from ''Black and White'', is even worse, especially when compared to her game counterpart.
%% ** Elesa was made into a Genki Girl for the anime...which is ironic, considering she's TheStoic in the games.
%% * ''Anime/PrettySammy'': Pixy Misa and Washu.
* ''Anime/PrincessTutu'': Ahiru--who is a duck that can magically turn into a girl--spends most of the show running at ''top speed'', squawking out words so fast it's hard to keep up. She's not even aware that her energy level is unusually high, judging by her confused reaction when another girl from her school fails to keep up with her. This may be because her friends [[ThoseTwoGuys Pique and Lilie]] are about as energetic as she is, or it may be because [[RaisedByWolves she's a duck and doesn't know any better]].
%% * ''Anime/ProjectAKo'': C-ko Kotobuki.
%% * ''Anime/PuniPuniPoemi'': ''Anime/ExcelSaga'''s director also gave us Poemi. Impossible as it may sound, at times she surpasses even Excel in genki-ness. And this time, Poemy's dub actress strained her voice on ''the first day of recording''.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Shampoo. Out of all of Ranma's fiancées, she is the most active and energetic.
%% * ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': Wakaba Shinohara.
%% * ''Anime/SaberMarionetteJ'' and sequels: Lime.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Usagi Tsukino is an obvious example. Eternally cheerful and loud. Her monologue from [[Anime/SailorMoon the first anime]]'s ''Stars'' season perfectly expresses it. [[http://sailormusic.net/lyrics/moon.html Here's just the end]]:
-->"Oh, it's almost 7 o'clock on Saturday! Dinner time!
-->"All right!!
-->"With mom's food, and the TV on, my cheerfulness goes up a hundred times! The peace of school, and the peace of my family, and the peace of my sweetheart, and the peace of the universe, I will protect them all together!
-->"Time to eat!
-->"Yes! Energy level at two hundred percent! Cheer bursting at ten billion horsepower! Transform!"
** Minako is ''[[UpToEleven even more energetic]]''. She's usually (apparently) calm, but whenever something sets her off.... She once outran a ''car'' while weakened by having donated blood, having run ''all day'' and ''with her Pure Heart Crystal extracted'' (the latter of which has instantly knocked out ''everyone else''. Including ''Usagi'').
%% * ''Manga/{{Saiyuki}}'': Lirin.
%% * ''Manga/{{Saki}}'': Yuki, though it's actually a bit of a problem for her Mahjong playing since she loses focus after the initial rounds, causing her game to drop.
%% * ''LightNovel/SakurasouNoPetNaKanojo'': Misaki. It helps that she looks a lot like [[LightNovel/{{Toradora}} Minori Kushieda]] with brown hair.
%% * ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion'': Hinata Kawamoto is described as one in Rei's narration, in contrast to her behavior around Takahashi, pointing out her "lively" mood swings.
* ''Manga/SchoolRumble'': Tenma Tsukamoto, especially when she's a ShipperOnDeck.
** Its also to cover up that she's a StepfordSmiler.
%% * ''LightNovel/SisterPrincess'': Mamoru.
%% * ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'': Princess Amelia is a truly terrifying mix of this trope and LoveFreak. [[CatchPhrase HAMMER OF JUSTICE]]!!
* ''Manga/SoraNoManimani'': Mihoshi Akeno, who's full of energy and passion about two things: astronomy and Saku. She also has a tendency to [[TheGlomp hug]] him without warning.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Patty Thompson maintains a cheerful attitude in any situation. Also she laughs like crazy.
%% * ''Anime/StreetFighterIIV'': [[ActionGirl Chun-Li]]. Justified, as this is an AlternateUniverse where she's ''much'' younger than in canon.
%% * ''Manga/SumomoMoMomoMo'': Momoko Kuzuryu.
* ''Manga/SuperGals'': Ran Kotobuki. She runs everywhere and shouts all the time.
%% * ''Sweet Ninja Girl Azuki'': Nabatame Renge. Also Azuki herself, to a lesser extent.
%% * ''Manga/YoureUnderArrest'': Natsumi is genki and loud most of the time.
%% * ''Anime/ImGonnaBeAnAngel'': Noelle is an extreme version of this.
%% * ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'': Tomoka, Kurumi, and, to some extent, An ([[BewareTheNiceOnes if you don't piss her off]]).
* ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'': Ayumi. The first time we see her, she sprinted into the main character, sped through the conversation, and ran off. '''Into a wall'''.
%% * ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': Last Order, a.k.a. [[CloningBlues MISAKA #20001]], originally started as an EmotionlessGirl like her fellow Misaka clones, but when the scientists in charge of [[SendInTheClones Project Radio Noise]] uploaded a personality program into the [[PsychicLink Misaka Network]], [[HiveQueen Last Order]] (the network admin) intercepted the program for herself, hence the genkiness, unlike her [[EmotionlessGirl Radio Noise clones]], [[DarkMagicalGirl Misaka Worst]], or [[{{Shorttank}} Misaka Mikoto]].
* ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'': Huang Bu-ling, whose sprinting and flailing is often accompanied by circus tricks like running on top of a ball or breathing fire. As Mew Pudding, most of her fight scenes consist of jumping around and climbing things.
* ''Manga/TonaGura'': Nina is so annoyingly genki, she nearly causes EmotionlessGirl Marie Kagura to punish her, something she never does to anyone outside of her brother Yuuji. In his ChivalrousPervert mode, Yuuji asks that he be punished in her place. If Marie were to choose this option with Tojo Haya, like as not, no one would stop her.
* ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'': Minori approaches everything with so much energy that she makes the surrounding people look lifeless.
* ''Manga/{{Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE}}'': The first time we meet Sakura, she jumps on Syaoran and rapidly asks him a series of questions about how he's doing.
* ''Anime/{{Vandread}}'': Dita fills this role, right down to [[{{Dojikko}} frequently falling over while running]].
* ''Manga/WanderingSon'': Chizuru Sarashina is a wacky and eccentric girl who does what she wants to, even going against her school's clothing rules (she wore a bikini instead of the school swimsuit once, sometimes wears a tie instead of a ribbon, and wears the boy's uniform occasionally).
* ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5'': [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny Nozomi]]. With each "Kettei~!", you know she's going to drag the team into some [[ZanyScheme goodhearted but implausible plan]], and somehow, her pure energy makes it work. On the other hand, from the following seasons, we have [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Love Momozono]], [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Erika Kurumi]] and [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Siren/Ellen Kurokawa]] (post-HeelFaceTurn).
%% * ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Mana, the Egyptian past life of the Dark Magician Girl from the fifth season.
* ''Manga/{{Yotsuba}}'': Yotsuba is a Genki Girl with training wheels. To drive the point home, several moments of the story show her with [[SunnySunflowerDisposition sunflowers]].
%% * ''Manga/{{Yuyushiki}}'': DitzyGenius Yuzuko does this regularly. Yukari does it occasionally, usually when Yuzuko is doing something crazy.
%% * ''Manga/TwelveBeast'': Aero is ''extremely'' excitable and cheery.
* ''Manga/GochuumonWaUsagiDesuKa'':
** Cocoa, who often gets excited over the most seemingly trivial things, such as latte art and ordering three cups of coffee just to get an excuse to hug Tippy.
%% ** Sharo turns into one whenever she drinks coffee.
* ''Manga/HappyHappyClover'': [[http://yoroshikufansubs.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/happy-happy-clover-01-cap.png Clover/Chima]] is very [[ThePollyanna optimistic]] and very hyperactive. It's shown mostly in earlier stories of the manga and in episodes of the anime. [[http://animelehti.fi/wordpress/wp-content/files/2012/01/bubus03.png However, there are times]] [[http://www.animeclick.it/prove/serie/HappyHappyClover/HappyHappyClover16.jpg when she would get serious during certain situations]].
* ''Anime/UmiMonogatari'': Kanon's perky, lively mom, Miyako, who acts much younger than her age and is always full of energy.
* ''Manga/TonariNoKashiwagiSan'': Tina is a happy and energetic girl who jumps into any social situation and will do what she can to cheer people up.
%% * ''Anime/FateStayNightUnlimitedBladeWorks'': A grown-up version ([[WomanChild kinda]]) in Taiga.
%% * ''LightNovel/ShinmaiMaouNoTestament'': Maria is one.
%% * ''LightNovel/SeikenTsukaiNoWorldBreak'': Ranjou acts much in this way.
* ''VisualNovel/RoboticsNotes'': Akiho is an extremely enthusiastic robotics prodigy who wants to build a fully-functional life-size mecha based on the one from her favorite anime. Her boundless ambition and enthusiasm contrasts jarringly with her best friend Kaito, a lazy video game enthusiast who would rather play games than build robots.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
%% * ''ComicBook/CerebusTheAardvark'': The Regency Elf.
%% * ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'': Misfit not only embodies this trope, she hangs a huge pink candy-striped [[LampshadeHanging lampshade on it]].
%% * Harley Quinn, both in [[Comicbook/HarleyQuinn the comics]] and the Franchise/{{DCAU}}.
%% * ''Comicbook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'': Cyclone.
%% * ''Manhwa/TheGreatCatsby'': Sun.
%% * ''ComicBook/StrangersInParadise'': Casey. [[spoiler:It may or may not be a part of her ObfuscatingStupidity]].
* ''ComicBook/XMen'':
** Villain Mojo has a DeadpanSnarker assistant, Majordomo, who in turn has a Genki Girl assistant, Minordomo. Minor can be expected to say "Ohmygosh, ''OH''mygolly..." at least twice per appearance, and will get worked up over something (complete with arm-waving and rapid-fire talking--her version of it goes from sentences to short phrases strung together in the end) more and more until finally having a ''heart attack''. Luckily, she's an artificial human, so Majordomo just has to hit her reset button to get her up and genki again.
%% ** Early appearances of Kitty Pryde started her out as a Genki Girl, though she actually [[CharacterDevelopment matured]] during her run with the team.
%% ** Her best friend, Illyana Rasputin, tended towards this when she was in an honestly good mood, which, it must be admitted, [[BlessedWithSuck was not all that often]] after her...[[YearInsideHourOutside growing pains]].
%% ** Megan Gwynn (Pixie) follows ''both'' girls in starting this role, then she met Illyana a few times, and [[BreakTheCutie she's slowly being broken out of this trope]].
* ''Young Liars'': Deconstructed; Sadie acts the way she does because a bullet in her brain destroyed her inhibitions and ability to realize consequences.
%% * ''{{ComicBook/Lumberjanes}}'': Ripley.

%% -->"So much glitter!"

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* ''FanFic/APikachuInLove'' gives us Pichi, a rather hyperactive Pikachu who, if not for her ''much'' nicer disposition and lacking of [[RealityWarper reality warping powers]], could be mistaken for the Pikachu equivalent of [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]]. [[spoiler:Gets '''''BRUTALLY''''' {{Deconstructed}} later on when her wacky and carefree antics nearly get Pikachu ''killed'' by an Ursaring and cause her to suffer a HeroicBSOD due to feeling like [[ItsAllMyFault it's all her fault]]. She gets over it a little as the fic goes on, but is noticeably a ''lot'' less carefree and perky for the rest of the fic]].
* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Before the beginning of this story, Rei Ayanami was incredibly cheerful, energetic, and sunny the whole time, but an accident rendered her emotionless.
%% * Alyssa from ''Fanfic/KeepersOfTheElements''.
%% * Lyra Heartstrings in ''Fanfic/TheCadanceverse'' is pretty much always like this. Vinyl is like this too when she's onstage.
%% * ''FanFic/NobodyDies'' takes this treatment of Rei and gives it [[CrazyAwesome a]] [[SociopathicHero few]] [[EldritchAbomination twists]].
%% * Gabrielle/[[spoiler:Takako]] from the ''FanFic/TamersForeverSeries''.
* ''Fanfic/SomeSemblanceOfMeaning'' has the District Twelve tributes' escort/makeshift mentor, Lavinia Gilden ([[spoiler:also known as Tansy Leefinch]]), who is highly energetic and bubbly...although this lessens later on as [[TheProtagonist Vale]] and [[MouthyKid Kit]] go into Literature/TheHungerGames and Lavinia has to watch them suffer in the arena.
%% * In [[FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse the Lunaverse]], [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]]'s Genki Girl qualities are deconstructed--far from her "friends to everyone" quality that this grants her in canon, these traits make her just as annoying as a Genki Girl would be in real life.
%% * Kumiko Akamine from ''FanFic/DespairsLastResort''.
%% * Sue in ''FanFic/CaveStoryVersusIMMeen''. Good ''lord,'' is she overenthusiastic in this story.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film--Animated]]
* ''Disney/BigHero6''
** Cass Hamada is a rare adult type, but she is always excited and happy.
** Honey Lemon shifts into genki mode whenever she's doing anything chemistry-related.
%% * Kiina's portrayal in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: The Legend Reborn'' qualify her as one. It's in stark contrast with how sour she behaved in the novel that takes place before the movie's events--however, the movie was written first. It was also the only time we saw this side of her, but it had already stained her image in the fans' minds.
%% ** [[WordOfGod The writer]] offered justification: one, she has every right to act that way in the movie, considering the events; two, according to the {{novelization}}, she's something of a StepfordSmiler.
%% * Agnes from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''.
%% ** And now Lucy Wilde in Despicable Me 2.
* Dory from ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. Her perkiness and high energy buoy all her friends in rough times, or just annoy them.
* Princess Anna from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is extremely hyperactive and impulsive to the point of being dangerously reckless, even at the age of five. Being all alone in a castle with nothing to do and no one to talk to for 13 years has only exacerbated this, to the point where her second IWantSong is damn near exhausting to watch.
* Boo from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc''. Justified, she is only about three years old.
%% * Rapunzel from ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' is pretty lively. Her never having been outside before only makes her more excitable.
%% * Despite being [[MiniatureSeniorCitizens much older and smaller]] than most of the other examples listed here, Edna Mode from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' '''definitely''' qualifies.
* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' has Ariel, who frustrates her father with how energetic and adventurous she is.
%% * Unikitty from ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie''.
* Charlotte from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' is a Genki Girl that seems to move entirely too fast [[TheDitz for her brain to catch up]].
* Jessie from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 3]]''. What we see of her ShowWithinAShow character is pure genki; in her real-life personality, though she displays quite a bit of cynicism and remorse, she still manages to fit this trope.
%% ** Trixie the Triceratops from ''3''. Bonnie from the same film seems like she'll grow into one of these as well.
* Young Ellie from Disney/Pixar's ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'' is definitely one of these. Her wonderful mania for living makes you feel for her all the more when [[spoiler:she finds out that she can't have children]].
* Vanellope von Schweetz from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' is certainly this. Considering that she's a game character from a [[LevelAte candy-themed]] RacingGame, it would be downright bizarre to have her be anything ''but'' hyperactive.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film--Live Action]]
%% * Every role Bollywood actress Genelia D'Souza has done. Ever. Even in the non-Bollywood Indian movies. Her most famous Genki Girl role was in the Telugu film ''Bommarillu''. It was remade into three different languages, and she played the same character in all of them.
%% * ''Film/BulletsOverBroadway''. Eden Brent is a giggly flapper.
%% * Tracy Turnblad in ''Film/{{Hairspray}}''.
* Toyo from ''Film/{{Ikiru}}'' is one of these, with her exuberance breaking Watanabe out of his [[YourDaysAreNumbered death]]-inspired angst.
%% * Ashley in ''Junebug'' is one of the more realistic versions of this trope.
%% * Elle Woods in ''Film/LegallyBlonde'' is this trope personified.
%% * Bahia Ben Mahmoud in the french movie ''Le Nom des Gens''.
%% * Sophie in ''Theatre/MammaMia''. Donna and her friends are quite energetic as well, despite being in their fifties.
* Jordan Cochran in ''Film/RealGenius''.
-->'''Jordan:''' I never sleep; I don't know why. I had a roommate and I drove her nuts--I mean really nuts--they had to take her away in an ambulance and everything. But she's okay now, but she had to transfer to an easier school. I don't know if that had anything to do with being my fault. But listen, if you ever need to talk or you need help studying, just let me know, 'cause I'm just a couple doors down from you guys and I never sleep, okay?
%% * Toby Walters from ''Film/RomyAndMichelesHighSchoolReunion''.
* Basanti from ''Bollywood/{{Sholay}}''--one of her main character traits is that she doesn't stop talking.
%% * Christine [=McIntyre=]'s character in ''[[Film/TheThreeStooges The Brideless Groom]]''. She doesn't even have a name, but she leaves one heck of an impression.
%% * Quorra from ''Film/TronLegacy'' is very much one when not in a life-threatening situation.
%% * [[ActionGirl Tianxin]], the overly-energetic thief in the {{Wushu}} film ''Film/WuDang''.
%% * Clementine in ''Film/EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind''. Subverted in the sense that it's due to severe mental health issues and her boyfriend finds it grating at times.
* ''Film/AllAboutSteve'' has Mary who is constantly cheerful, talks at a mile a minute about every bit of trivia that goes through her head, and has a tendency to flail when she gets excited.
* ''Film/CoverGirl:'' Based on some catty advice from a rival, Rusty acts overly bouncy and perky in her interview for the modeling job, nearly blowing her chances. The publisher's assistant later describes her as "a redheaded nervous breakdown" and adds, "That one isn't a girl, John—she's a leaping thyroid."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* The eponymous character of ''Literature/AnneOfGreenGables'', who has a tendency to spout monologues lasting for more than a page. She stops this in the later books.
%% * Creator/AndrewVachss's ''Burke'' books have Pepper, although speaking to Burke somehow puts a damper on her energy.
* Permanent Rose Casson from the ''Literature/CassonFamilySeries''. She is described as recklessly boisterous (going so far as to cause a traffic jam just to meet a boy her brother knows--when she's only eight!) and, when told that her father is going to New York, she about bursts with energetic excitement.
* One of the first eccentricities Winterbourne notices about Literature/DaisyMiller is how she's just overflowing with energy and enthusiasm. "It was many years since he had heard a young girl talk so much."
%% * Prilla from the ''Franchise/DisneyFairies'' series.
%% * Piggie from ''Literature/ElephantAndPiggie''.
%% * Pauline Stoker from Creator/PGWodehouse's ''[[Literature/JeevesAndWooster Thank You, Jeeves]]''.
%% * Mizal from ''Literature/{{Spaceforce}}'', [[PosthumousCharacter even though she's dead]].
%% * The eponymous character of the ''Literature/JunieBJones'' series. So. Much.
%% * Suzy Turquoise Blue from ''Literature/KeysToTheKingdom'' is almost perpetually cheerful.
%% * Andy from the ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'' story ''Monster Blood''.
%% * Amaranta Ursula of ''Literature/OneHundredYearsOfSolitude'', and especially Remedios the Beauty, who's also the {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
%% * The eponymous heroine of ''Literature/PippiLongstocking''.
* The eponymous character of the ''Literature/RamonaQuimby'' series is rambunctious and noisy and described as "the cheerleader type" by her older sister. Her excitable nature has been known to clash with her friend Howie's stoic demeanor.
* ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'': Beverly Brook. Her enthusiasm frequently leaves protagonist DC Grant exhausted, especially when she is near a river (well, she is an AnthropomorphicPersonification of the river by the same name).
%% * Birdie Boyer, the main character of ''Strawberry Girl''.
%% * Quite a few of Anne Tyler's heroines qualify, especially Pauline in ''The Amateur Marriage'' (one of the many reasons why she and her husband [[TheStoic Michael]] are so mismatched). There's also [[{{Dojikko}} Maggie]] in ''Breathing Lessons'', [[StepfordSmiler Rebecca]] in ''Back When We Were Grown-Ups'', [[AbusiveParents Pearl]] and Jenny in ''Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant'', and [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Muriel]] in ''A Patchwork Planet''.
%% * ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Effie Trinket.
%% * ''Literature/TheMysteriousBenedictSociety'': Kate Weatherhall.
%% * ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'': Alice Cullen.
%% * Squirrelflight from ''Literature/WarriorCats''. Also, Cinderpaw [[spoiler:(before she is hit by a car and becomes crippled)]], and most of the newer Warriors and Apprentices.
%% * Wendy from Creator/JohnCWright's ''Literature/WarOfTheDreaming''.
%% * Of all possible people in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', we are given [[spoiler:Magos]] Felicia Tayber.
* ''Literature/OfFearAndFaith'': Elin is joyful, bubbly, and enthusiastic with NoSenseOfPersonalSpace, sometimes to her [[TheGlomp friends' chagrin]], but [[TheHeart usually not]].
%% * Tansy in Mira Grant's ''Parasite'' combines this with DarkActionGirl. Justified by her having suffered some brain damage due to [[CameBackWrong flawed resurrection]].
* ''Literature/RainbowMagic'': Addison the April Fool's Day Fairy is always bursting with excitement and has to be reminded several times that she can't be spotted by other humans.
%% * ''Literature/{{Firefight}}'': Mizzie is...oddly cheerful for someone who grew up in a post-apocalyptic world.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Creator/RachaelRay from her eponymous talk show. She purposely avoids "sob stories" and almost always has a smile on her face. She also works 100-hour weeks and is a rather shrewd businesswoman, and her energy and determination are usually quoted as the source of her success.
* Creator/GiadaDeLaurentiis is a somewhat more sedate Genki Girl, also on Food Network. What probably helps is that, with that largish head and especially large eyes of hers, she even almost looks like a real-life anime girl. [[http://www.joeydevilla.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/giada-enthusiasm.jpg Or, to put it visually]]...
* [[ForeignQueasine Sandra Lee]], once again from Food Network. She fits the "dosed up on caffeine" requirement .
* Ingrid Hoffman is relatively sedate on her English-language show, but watch her in Spanish... it's like Rachael Ray raided Giada's closet.
%% * Similarly, Creator/EllenDeGeneres is very energetic.
%% * ''Series/{{Alphas}}'': Kat, who never seems bothered by her constant loss of memory.
%% * Momoyama Lily in the Japanese drama ''Anna-san no Omame'' (a.k.a ''The Best Friend of Beautiful Anna'').
%% * ''Series/{{Bones}}'': Daisy Wicke manages to pull it off by being endearing...when she isn't being ''incredibly'' annoying.
%% * ''Series/{{Carrusel}}'': Valeria Ferrer.
%% * ''Series/CoronationStreet'': This is a common trait, right from the first episode with Linda Chevski (which aired [[OlderThanYouThink December 9, 1960]]) to today's Kylie Platt. Combine this with ReallyGetsAround and you get one of the show's favorite archetypes: the classic "Tart with a Heart".
* ''Series/DharmaAndGreg'': Dharma is the most energetic flower child you can imagine.
* ''Series/{{Doctors}}'': Cherry, particularly in her early appearances. When she first started work at the Mill, Michelle got her to put away all the medicine that had been left out, expecting to have to sort it out herself later. Not only did Cherry get it done in record time, while she was at it, she alphabetized all the cabinets to make things easier to find.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': Kaylee.
-->'''Jayne:''' Captain, can you stop her from being [[SunnySunflowerDisposition cheerful]], please?
-->'''Mal:''' I don't believe there's a power in the 'verse can stop Kaylee from being cheerful. Sometimes you just want to duct tape her mouth and dump her in the hold for a month.
-->'''Kaylee:''' ''[kisses Mal on the cheek]'' I love my captain.
%% * ''Series/FullHouse'': Kimmy Gibbler.
%% * ''Series/GilmoreGirls'': Lorelai. Her daughter Rory is the more grounded one, although Rory has her genki moments as well.
%% * ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'': Riley Matthews is full of it.
%% * ''Series/{{Glee}}'': Rachel Berry is the triple-threat Genki Girl.
%% * ''Series/HannahMontana'': Lilly. To a lesser extent, Miley is this as well. Creator/EmilyOsment often carries this into her 2014 show, ''Series/YoungAndHungry'', too.
%% * ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': Daphne must have been written with this trope firmly in mind.
* ''Series/ICarly'': Carly, with her loud and spastic nature and her LargeHam tendencies, can be considered this. Their LoonyFan Mandy as well.
%% * ''Series/{{JAG}}'': Jennifer Coates.
%% * ''Series/{{Jessie}}'': Emma.
%% * ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'': Jessie Combs. Kari slightly less so, but she also delves into this a lot.
%% * ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': [[PerkyGoth Abby Scuito]].
%% * ''Series/PushingDaisies'': [[TomboyishName Chuck]].
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'':
** Elliot Reid was for the most part of the first few seasons highly enthusiastic and quick-talking, tempered with bouts of self doubt [[TheWoobie (audience: AWWWW!)]]. Her enthusiasm was more of a mask. She was very neurotic on the inside, due to bad childhood experience, overbearing parents, etc. She could be considered a Genki Girl later on, the way she pushes her boyfriends about (sometimes literally). This is a case of CharacterizationMarchesOn and EarlyInstallmentWeirdness. Elliot was initially portrayed as a competitive and smug know-it-all--her genki tendencies didn't show up until the second season.
** PlayedForDrama with Denise, a paramedic Dr. Cox is forced to work with. She's eternally cheerful and babbles on and on about everything. It turns out that [[spoiler:her young son died in an accident years ago]].
%% * ''Series/ShakeItUp'': [=CeCe=] and Rocky.
%% * ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Chloe Sullivan and Lois Lane are like this, and it's become a rather endearing trait in both of them.
%% * ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'': Sonny Munroe.
%% * ''Series/TheAmazingRace'': Brook from season 17, who talked nonstop while working a speed bag and jumping rope. Also, Mallory from the same season.
%% * ''Series/TheOC'': Taylor Townsend.
%% * ''Series/TheOfficeUS'': Kelly and Erin.
%% * ''Series/ThePattyDukeShow'': Patty Lane.
%% * ''Series/{{Victorious}}'': Cat Valentine.
%% * ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'': Claudia Donovan, a hyperactive, always-getting-into trouble tech wiz.
* ''Series/WildRomance'': Kang Jong Hee is [[spoiler:bipolar, so she goes through periods of excitability and depression. When she's happy, she's]] exceedingly happy and takes to biting people.
%% * ''Series/{{Zoey 101}}'': Nicole Bristow.
* ''Series/OpenHeart'': Mikayla. She's super excited about helping Dylan find her dad. And also most other things.
* Kwebbel and Smal from Studio 100's Series/KabouterPlop series. They get easily excited compared to the other gnomes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/MickieJames, though she fit the bill more when she was playing her psycho character. Her entrance theme was a SuspiciouslySimilarSong version of "Hey Mickie" and she would literally bounce all the way to the ring. She calmed the bouncing down after her HeelFaceTurn, but still fit the trope.
* Wrestling/AJLee when she was on NXT season 3. Overly perky and energetic and she once appropriately had to give a speech about caffeine. "Caffeine will perk you up, but I'm some natural dynamite, baby."
* Christy Hemme from the first Diva Search was like this, standing out as the only girl who actually had a lot of personality. Wrestling/TrishStratus even told her with her winnings she could go buy herself some decaf. Christy responded, "It's all natural."
* Jessica James from the indie circuit and Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} fame is like this as well. It rubbed off on her tag team partner Rachel Summerlynn when they formed Rachel and Jessica's Excellent Tag Team.
* The appropriately-named Amber Lively from ''Wrestling/{{Wrestlicious}}'', the perky and fun-loving cheerleader. What's hilarious is that the woman who plays her (Madison Rayne) is known for playing [[AlphaBitch the exact opposite]] in TNA.
* Canadian wrestler Jennifer Blake is in full-on genki mode whenever she works face. As a heel, not so much. It's still very appropriate that her nickname is "Girl Dynamite".
* As a heel, Wrestling/{{Layla}} wavered between this and TheFool. After her HeelFaceTurn, she was a proper Genki Girl. She would even enthusiastically kiss a child in the crowd during her entrance.
* {{Wrestling/Bayley}} eventually became this as a result of CharacterisationMarchesOn. Her character began as a starstruck fangirl who was a bit shy. Eventually she morphed into an energetic character who wanted to hug everyone. Her change in entrance themes to a more up-tempo song reflects this.
* Becky Lynch whether heel or face is an aggressive headbanger who just seems to have unending sources of energy. A glance at interviews shows she's like this in real life too.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
%% * A Wizards of the Coast free online supplement for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 3.5'' [[http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/mm/20040103a describes]] Mercury Dragons as such.
* ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'': The ''Curse of the Crimson Throne'' AP gives us allied NPC Laori Vaus, the disturbingly enthusiastic cleric of a god of Pain and Loss. So genki, she creeps out other members of her church. The book she's introduced in includes the wonderful description of how she made her pilgrimage "Armed only with her indomitable optimism and an appetite for pain."
* ''Blog/ThingsMrWelchIsNoLongerAllowedToDoInAnRPG'':
-->"48. The elf is restricted to decaf for the rest of the adventure."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
%% * ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'': Lilica Felchenrow is really hyper. [[ThePowerOfLove Heart Aino]], too.
* ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'': Gretchen Hasselhoff, who is both one of the fastest runners and the fastest talker in the series. It's only fitting that her nickname is "[[MotorMouth Jabberjaw]]".
* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'': Though she gets toned down a bit in the later games due to all the [[BreakTheCutie torture and all]], Imoen is rather specifically described by one character like this:
-->'''Valygar:''' For someone who supposedly [[spoiler:has her soul tainted by the evil of a dead god]], you remind me considerably of a chipmunk with a sugar high and a death wish.
%% * ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'': Kazooie, at least in the first game. In the sequels, she becomes more of a {{jade|ColoredGlasses}}d DeadpanSnarker.
%% * ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'': Peppy Villagers.
%% * ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'': Tiny Tina throws, like, the best tea parties '''''ever'''''.
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'': [[RebelliousPrincess Marle]]. To the point that her character's victory sprite is an energetic jumping up and down.
* ''VideoGame/CherryTreeHighComedyClub'': Miley Verisse. Most of her peers think of her as a weirdo because she's passionate about stand-up comedy.
%% * ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' series: Lei Fang and Hitomi.
%% * ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'': Midori.
%% ** ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'': Airi and Female Tico.
* ''[[VideoGame/DonPachi DoDonPachi SaiDaiOuJou]]'': Hina is lively and cheerful [[spoiler:even after becoming Hibachi. As [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Inbachi]], however, she drops those traits and becomes TheStoic]].
* ''VideoGame/DuelSaviorDestiny'': Nanashi, the local zombie girl, tends to bounce around happily without having a very clear understanding of what's going on around her.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'': Krile Mayer Baldesion is the original example--her little sprite bounces all over the screen when she's happy.
%% ** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'': This is followed by Relm, the youngest of the cast.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Yuffie Kisaragi, a mischievous take on the type. She is almost eternally energetic, cheerful, and upbeat.
** ''VideoGame/CrisisCore: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Aerith Gainsborough in her younger incarnation, though she's remarkably sweet about it.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' features two in the main cast. Rinoa is the leading lady and also doubles as a bit of a ManicPixieDreamGirl for Squall. Uniquely she's called out on her attitude being immature and inappropriate for a military environment. Selphie meanwhile has managed to merge her Genki energy with competence in the military - resulting in her being CuteAndPsycho.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', we get Eiko, who is also the game's resident BrattyHalfPint. She has a great deal of energy and is usually excited about something.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Rikku. The sad overtone kept her genki-ness down a bit, although she's still eccentric and cheerful. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'', she becomes Genki Girl incarnate.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'': Although perhaps not to the degree of her "sisters", Penelo fills in this spot alongside Vaan in an otherwise very no-nonsense group.
%% ** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'': Vanille, on the other hand, is a [[StepfordSmiler particularly interesting example]] who is [[Really700YearsOld older than she looks]].
%% ** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyType0'': Cater.
* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series has a lot:
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]'' and ''Radiant Dawn'': Mia, who is obsessed with finding her rival (a swordsperson in white) and dueling people at dawn.
** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'': Tiltyu is a tragic example of how a Genki Girl can eventually [[BreakTheCutie break down]] and cannot be genki anymore for the rest of her life. Sylvia also counts, and for the second half Fee and Patty (and her replacement Daisy) more than fit the bill.
%% ** ''Fire Emblem'' has Serra ([[StepfordSmiler for the most part]]), Rebecca, and Nino, and ''The Sword of Seals'' has Shanna the Pegasus knight and Lalam the dancer.
%% ** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones The Sacred Stones]]'': Princess Tana as the typical example and Princess L'Arachel as the trope taken to new extremes.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'': Lissa, Nowi, and Cynthia. Cynthia is an even bigger example than the other two, since she manages to combine this trope with LargeHam and CloudCuckoolander (similarly to L'Arachel).
*** Nowi is also a [[DeconstructedTrope more realistic take on the trope]]. She's a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent manakete]] and painfully aware of [[WhoWantsToLiveForever she will outlive almost every single loved one he has]], so her genkiness is both very genuine and a coping mechanism. After all, why spend her super-long life crying when she can spend it laughing most of the time?
%% * ''VideoGame/GrandChase'': Arme and Amy.
%% * ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'': Deconstructed in the Radio/GTARadio. Amy from the VCPR station is a Genki Girl who was put on heavy anti-depressants ever since her family was brutally murdered.
* ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'': Year 2 features minor character Lupe, a coat-check girl at the Calavera Café, who tends to get overly enthusiastic about her job. This is pointed out in a conversation between Manny and police officer Carla when the latter cites Lupe's presence as the reason she stopped visiting the café:
-->'''Carla:''' All that bubbly energy, I just want to strangle her!
-->'''Manny:''' I've tried that. It doesn't stop her.
%% * ''Franchise/HarvestMoon: [[VideoGame/HarvestMoonAnimalParade Animal Parade]]'': Maya. She seems to be so cutesy as an adult because her parents have been, and still are, the same way.
%% * VideoGame/{{Izuna|LegendOfTheUnemployedNinja}} from the two games sporting her name certainly qualifies.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series:
** Kula Diamond in all her hyper-cheery, candy-loving, FaceDoodling glory. She's especially notable given her status as an OppositeSexClone of the much more serious Kyo Kusanagi, and given that the same experiment that created her led to [[TheStoic K]].
** Yuri Sakazaki has always been portrayed as cheerful and optimistic, but it gets dialed up in the KoF series — to the point of bodering on outright childish behavior, at times. She's even gotten snarky, albeit in playful fashion with her friends.
** ''KOF Maximum Impact'': Mignon Beart. May be THE most triumphant example in this game.
** Also, Athena Asamiya, Mai Shiranui, and ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' [[TheCameo crossover]] Fiolina Germi.
* ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'': Princess Rosella of Daventry is just as fond of adventuring as her dad, impulsive, fun-loving, and extroverted.
* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'': Mission Vao, a SatisfiedStreetRat and WideEyedIdealist, she cheerfully loved to explore rakghoul infested sewers that even Mandalorian mercenary Canderous didn't like venturing into. She's low on hit points, but her pickpocketing, hacking, and minesweeping skills, along with her snarky retorts, can get the party into (or out of) a lot of trouble.
* ''VideoGame/TheOldRepublic'': The Consular ends up with two. Holiday is a sentient hologram who is always excited when presented with new technology, a puzzle, or an intellectual challenge, which is part of the reason she and [[BrilliantButLazy Tharan]] make such a good team. The other is the Consular's eventual Padawan, Nadia Grell. A SpoiledSweet Senator's daughter, Nadia's force abilities tend to make things ''explode'' if she gets too excitable. Her species also is new to the galactic scene, and so she is incredibly happy if you take her with you to new planets or give her a chance to test her Force abilities, with a {{Catchphrase}} of ''"Yes! More exploring!"''
%% * ''VideoGame/ManaKhemiaAlchemistsOfAlRevis'': Jess. [[spoiler:She's hiding something]].
%% * ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': In a WRPG example, Kasumi Goto can qualify. She is Japanese, too.
%% ** She gets [[spoiler:broken for a minute at the end of her loyalty mission in a very effective scene showing her having a quick emotional breakdown. She recovers quickly]].
* ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'': Hedgeshock the Erinaceroid. She talks fast, walks around hyperactively, and her IdleAnimation gives you the impression that she just ''can't'' stand still.
%% * ''VideoGame/MidnightClub 2'': Gina.
%% * ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'': Neptune, Nisa, and Ram (to a lesser extent).
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'': Neeshka has elements of this. Note her kleptomania, habit of speaking very rapidly, and general variance between overwhelmingly excited or deeply anxious.
%% * ''VideoGame/NightTrap'': Megan.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} Persona 3 Portable]]'': The right dialog choices can turn the female protagonist into one of these, much to the chagrin of the rest of the cast.
%% * ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon Explorers'': Sunflora.
%% * ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'': Bianca and Iris in fit the bill.
%% * ''VideoGame/{{Rift}}'': [[RebelliousPrincess Uriel Chuluun]].
%% * ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'' has quite a few:
%% ** ''VideoGame/RuneFactory and VideoGame/RuneFactoryFrontier'': Melody.
%% ** ''VideoGame/RuneFactory2'': Cammy.
%% ** ''VideoGame/RuneFactory3'': Daria, Pia, and Carmen.
%% ** ''VideoGame/RuneFactoryTidesOfDestiny'': Sierra and Quinn.
%% ** ''VideoGame/RuneFactoryFrontier'': Annette and Selphy.
%% ** ''VideoGame/RuneFactory4'': Xiao Pai.
* From the ''VideoGame/{{SSX}}'' series:
** Kaori Nishidake. In a series ''about'' death-defying snowboarders, Kaori's excitable nature is explicitly childlike and she just has so much ''fun'' out on the snow.
%% ** Marisol Diez Delgado from Tricky also qualifies.
* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'''s Genkibowl DLC 'Genki Girls' couldn't personify this trope any more than they already do. Angry Tiger, Sad Panda, and Sexy Kitten are high-energy fast talking costume wearing minions of the aptly-named Professor Genki.
%% * ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'': Kunoichi, although she mixes an unhealthy amount of creepiness with it, what with her stalking Yukimura and enthusiastically suggesting the most dreadfully violent solutions to any problems that may pop up.
* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'':
** Amy Rose. There are times when even Sonic seems worn out by her.
** ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush Adventure]]'': Marine the Raccoon is a hyperactive [[LandDownUnder Australian]] [[TotallyRadical slang-spouting]] MotorMouth who considers herself to be the star of the adventure, despite being the TagalongKid.
%% ** ''VideoGame/SonicBoom'': Amy retains this trait in this game. Just listen to her sperg out after her and Tails venture through the Pit.
%% * ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'': Cassandra, Xianghua, and her daughter Leixia.
%% * ''VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime'': Peppita Rossetti.
%% * ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series: Sakura, Ibuki and Elena.
* Many ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' characters are this; sometimes there are many in the same game. For example:
** ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'': Miakis, initially. Then she gets saddled with an overload of angst, but eventually reverts to form over the course of the rest of the game.
** ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'': Nanami. Her introduction sequence consists entirely of her shaking her brother around out of giddiness for about 2 minutes, culminating when she accidentally sends him hurtling into a cliff wall, leaving a hero-sized imprint in ''solid rock''.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** Princess Daisy. She definitely has a lot of energy to spare, especially once Deanna Mustard started voicing her.
%% ** Princess Peach can fall under this trope, DependingOnTheWriter.
%% ** ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'': [[ExpositionFairy Starlow/Chippy]].
* Aschen from the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' spinoff ''VideoGame/EndlessFrontier'' becomes this whenever she lets out her full power. Makes for an...interesting contrast with her [[TheStoic usual self]]. She even goes so far as cheerily shouting out things like [[CallingYourAttacks "ASCHEN PUNCH!" and "ASCHEN KICK!"]] Considering that, appearance-wise, she looks more like something out of a robotic AmazonBrigade than a Genki Girl, it makes for an amusing contrast.
%% * ''VideoGame/TailConcerto'': Flare Pris.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'': Norma Beatty. She goes as far as giving her party members strange [[TheNicknamer nicknames]] like "Senny" and "Teach".
%% * ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'': Arche starts off very much like this, though she mellows considerably after the party [[spoiler:visits the Elf Village, and her mother is seemingly executed in her place]]. Which, to be honest, is fairly understandable...
%% * ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' series: Ling Xiaoyu.
%% * ''[[VideoGame/AgarestSenki The Records of Agarest]]'': Noah, one of the three 3rd-Generation heroines. There's also the half-rabbit girl Qua, who makes her debut in the 4th Generation.
%% * ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster'': Yayoi Takatsuki and Hibiki Ganaha.
%% ** Yayoi literally refers to herself as 200% genki.
%% * ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon'': Meru.
%% * In some of the incarnations of Zelda, she seems to be full of energy, at least until she gets kidnapped. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', she even helps you fight Ganondorf.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'': Apparently, Zelda isn't above dragging her childhood friend around to things she wants to do, doing all the talking whenever she's around (even if Link never talks), and pushing/jumping at him from potentially-lethal flights to make him use the sailcloth/catch her on his Loftwing.
%% ** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap'': Zelda seems to be a Genki Girl, at least from what we see of her before she's [[TakenForGranite turned to stone]] pretty early in the game.
%% * ''VideoGame/TimeGal'': Reika Kirishima.
%% * ''Franchise/TokimekiMemorial'' series: [[{{Kawaiiko}} Yumi Saotome]] and [[TheFashionista Yuko Asahina]] in ''1'', [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend Hikari Hinomoto]], [[{{Dojikko}} Miyuki Kotobuki]], and [[TwinSwitch Maho Shirayuki]] in ''2'', and [[{{Bokukko}} Itsuki Maeda]] and [[TwinSwitch Rui Nanakawa]] in ''4''. Yumi and Hikari even get [[SunnySunflowerDisposition the Sunflower]] as their [[FlowerMotifs symbolic flower]] to drive the genkiness point home.
%% ** In ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight'', one of the {{Spiritual Successor}}s of the series, there's Carol Palecki ([[spoiler:who actually fakes the genkiness and is really a StepfordSmiler]]), [[{{Bokukko}} Hanna Shawsky]], and [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Priscilla Dolphan]].
%% * ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'': Cirno is such a genki girl she gets an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjXN_xPQd0M entire song]] in which to display it. "Chirumiru, chirumiru genki, chirumiru!" Marisa also displays levels of genkiness. What else would you expect from a CuteWitch that can fire ''a giant WaveMotionGun''?
%% * ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter'': Eileen.
%% * ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III'': The Dryads' voice-set portrays this kind of personality, with a touch of TheDitz, for the entire race.
%% -->"Fall, like leaves! In...fall!"
%% * ''VideoGame/SakuraWars'': Erica Fontaine. How? [[TwoWordsObviousTrope Three words]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVOHQbXD-Cg Good Morning Dance]].
* ''Custom Robo Arena'': Polly. At one point in the game, her battle cry is actually "I'm all hopped up on coffee! So I won't lose!". At another point, she sends you to fetch her "The Legendary Coffee" to allow the player to fight her. After the player wins, she asks, "Hmm...maybe all this coffee is stunting my growth?"
* MortalKombat has Mileena, yes you heard that right: '''''[[SexIsViolence M]][[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter i]][[LovableSexManiac l]][[PerkyFemaleMinion e]][[ButterFace e]][[{{Stripperiffic}} n]][[CloningBlues a]]'''''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Hilde Wangel in ''Theatre/TheMasterBuilder'' by Creator/HenrikIbsen is probably one of the oldest examples. She is irresponsible, playful, and clearly after amusement. And when she gets Solness to climb the highest tower, like she has urged him to, she can't keep herself from jumping and waving her hat--and making him lose his balance and fall to the ground in the process. Her reaction is more bewildered than guilt-ridden.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
%% ** Maya Fey in the Phoenix Wright arc.
%% ** Trucy Wright in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney''.
%% ** Kay Faraday in ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations''.
%% ** Pearl Fey in the second game. The trip to Kurain Village takes two hours by train. She ''ran all the way''.
** Ema Skye was this in her first appearance in the first game, being very enthusiastic about everything (though especially scientific things). She's less so in her reappearance in ''Apollo Justice''.
%% * Nelie and Orpha in ''VisualNovel/EienNoAselia''. Nelie's twin Shiah looks like she's trying, but she's a little shy.
* Hagino apparently has this role assigned to her in ''{{Canvas 2}}'' and is required to be cheerful or Hiroki will get upset.
%% * ''VisualNovel/DaCapoII'' has Yuzu, one of the characters in Nanaka's route, who is as genki as they come, despite being an IllGirl.
%% * ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'':
%% ** Fujimura Taiga is an adult Genki Girl.
%% ** Ilya is too, except she's a genki not-quite-evil girl who likes dismembering Shirou a bit too much. [[spoiler:Shirou also realizes after spending a little time with her that it's all an act and that in reality she's immensely conflicted inside about whether to treat Shirou as a brother or an usurper]].
%% * Tsuzuriko/Tojiko in ''VisualNovel/KaraNoShoujo'' is your everyday genki girl, going to school at an academy full of near zombies. You might say she stands out a little.
%% * ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'': Emi and Misha. However, they are rather...[[StepfordSmiler interesting variants]] of the trope. The former, [[spoiler:while she indeed is a cheery girl, it turns out she's not as drama (or trauma)-free as she initially seems. The loss of her legs was traumatic, but she learned to cope with that well. The loss of her ''[[DisappearedDad dad]]'' she did not cope with at all. Part of getting her happy ending is to help her deal with her loss]]. And for the latter, [[spoiler:it's partly a pretense to hide the emotional trauma of Shizune rejecting her love confession, as well as being [[LoveHurts a coping mechanism for said trauma]]]].
* ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'': Haruka, oh, so much. Constantly running around causing mischief? Penchant for broadcasting her emotions at the top of her lungs? Acts like she's incapable of being serious for ten seconds at a time? Check, check, and check. She has HiddenDepths, though--she's well aware that she's very noisy and feels awkward around people like [[NotGoodWithPeople Rin]] who can't deal with that, and can be quite savvy when she puts her mind to things. [[spoiler:The whole thing is covering up a ''very'' screwed up, insecure individual who has very, very good reasons for priding herself on causing commotions]].
%% * ''VisualNovel/SharinNoKuni'': Sachi. [[spoiler:Natsumi]] used to be one as well until [[spoiler:she was accused of "seducing" an upper class boy and receiving her obligation. Natsumi gets hers back at the end of Chapter 5 and keeps it in the fandisc]].
%% * ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'': Asaga Oakrun.
%% * ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'': Arcueid Brunestud when she's not out killing Dead Apostles and is spending time with Shiki instead.
%% ** Kohaku definitely qualifies, too. [[{{Flanderization}} Especially]] in [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Kagetsu Tohya]] and ''Videogame/MeltyBlood''. [[spoiler:In the original game, though, this is subverted to point of being [[PlayerPunch a punch in the gut]]]].
%% * ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'': Beatrice deliberately invokes this trope as per [[ServileSnarker Ronove]]'s suggestion at the start of the fourth arc to cheer up Battler after [[spoiler:she crushingly deceives him by the end of the third arc]]. However, it turns out that Battler got over that very quickly, and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Beatrice just ends up making a complete idiot out of herself]].
%% * ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'': Ibuki Mioda.
* ''VisualNovel/{{Ascension}}'': Tillie, the TeamMom. Her relentless ''joie de vivre'' is frequently [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the other characters; TheHeroine even refers to her as a "sugar-crazed alchemist dwarf". Proof: her reunion with TheHeroine in the second chapter, in which she goes in for a big ol' [[TheGlomp glomp]]:

* ''Webcomic/AMagicalRoommate'': Daria is a genki dragon who was introduced to tools and became obsessed. Then she was introduced to modern technology...
-->'''Aylia:''' Clearly, you've never witnessed [the] homework exploding machine.
%% * ''Webcomic/AloneInACrowd'': Hope.
* ''Webcomic/AnsemRetort'': Larxene. She's a homicidal version of this, once nuking Disney World because she couldn't get free Funnel Cake.
* ''[[http://www.revenant-braves.schala.net Circumstances of the Revenant Braves]]'': Fio is a girl of action and gets restless when sitting around for too long. She even hopes for trouble if it will alleviate her boredom.
%% * ''Webcomic/{{Earthsong}}'': Felucca.
%% * ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'': Myari is this, much to the chagrin of Elon, who is the other half of their [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl duo]].
%% * ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'': Nina Delacroix.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
** Grace fits this trope [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2002-08-18 sometimes]], though she also enjoys sleeping a lot. Sometimes, she combines the two, resulting in the invention of her legendary "Sleepy Little Ninja Stealth Hug"...
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2007-09-29 Catalina Bobcat]], who can't even ask someone to keep something quiet quietly. "'''SHHHHH!!!'''"
** Heidi, [[spoiler:Elliot's "party animal socialite" alter-ego]].
--->[[MotorMouth Holy crap I feel like I just chugged down an espresso not literally of course that would hurt unless it]]...
%% * ''Webcomic/GhastlysGhastlyComic'': Freddy is about as genki a girl as they get. (The genki part, anyway. [[spoiler:Freddie's as much a girl as she wants to be]].)
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'':
** A [[CrossesTheLineTwice comically]] AxCrazy version--Bangladesh [=DuPree=]. Her [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20040121 first]] phrase in the comic is "''Ta daa! I'' am ''here!''" and on the next page she proclaims "''Nobody'' knows more [[TortureTechnician about torture]] than ''me''!"...just as cheerfully.
%% ** Agatha when [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070525 she's]] [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070528 on coffee]] or other stimulation agents.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': Jade Harley. Even her typing quirk is genki--omitting periods and overusing exclamation points and emoticons. Her [[AllTrollsAreDifferent troll]] counterpart, Feferi, also tends to get overexcited about ''everything''.
** Beforus gives us Latula, who is constantly on the go and obsessed with being [[TotallyRadical rad]], and Meulin, a Website/{{Tumblr}} {{fangirl}} parody prone to over-dramatic emotional declarations and gleeful [[ShipperOnDeck shipping]] dedication.
%% ** Turns out that [[spoiler:Aradia]] used to be one of these--though probably not to the extent of Jade or Feferi, and certainly not to the extent of Latula or Meulin--before she died.
* ''Webcomic/ImpureBlood'': Mac [[http://www.impurebloodwebcomic.com/Pages/Chapter007/ib040.html comes running to burble]] [[WrenchWench over the car]] and [[http://www.impurebloodwebcomic.com/Pages/Issue3/ib061.html goes]] {{squee}} over the Abomination.
* ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}'': Ivy is actually based off a hyperactive cat that the author knew.
* ''Webcomic/M9Girls'': Clau is always hyperactive and overly optimistic.
* ''Webcomic/MegaTokyo'': Asako is a [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1181 Genki Girl of Mass Destruction]], and her friend Mami knows the arming codes. As Mami says, "Hey, I always reserve the right to use the 'Asako option'. You should know that by now."
* ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'': Missi definitely qualifies. While not exactly hyper, she's drastically more energetic and upbeat than [[{{Wangst}} the rest of the cast]]. So far, nothing, not even being dumped, has been able to make her sad for more than a single panel.
* ''[[http://www.monsterful.com/ Monsterful]]'': Sapphire. The energetic zombie teenager is way faster and louder than a zombie should be.
* ''Webcomic/MurphysLaw'': Serrin. As an example, she [[TheGlomp energetically hugs]] an armed stranger.
* ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie'': The hyperactive, lovably eccentric Millie Mudd is a Genki Girl-in-training.
* ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'': Lisa and, to a lesser extent, Katy-Ann.
-->"Dear Mr. President: I have solved the world's energy needs. All you need to do is put two girls I know on a treadmill."
%% * ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'': Randy the Bandicoot.
%% * ''Webcomic/SchoolBites'': Sugar Shock.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'': Kiki. The one time they fed her Pixy Stix, she [[ImpactSilhouette made a ferret-shaped hole in the wall]] and circled the Earth three times before the others had even reacted.
%% * ''Webcomic/SoreThumbs'': Harmony.
* ''Webcomic/SuperTemps'': Skull Girl. She has been barred from coffee and sugar twice, her outbursts can create walls of text, and her energy can demolish a multi-story corporate complex in minutes.
* ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'': The always-enthusiastic Molly the Peanut Butter Monster. It probably helps that she has a super-fast metabolism and can outrun a bear.
%% * ''Webcomic/TheDevilsPanties'': Jennie.
%% * ''Webcomic/{{Weregeek}}'': Abby.
%% * ''Webcomic/ZodiacBlues'': Nancy.
* ''Webcomic/{{Paranatural}}'': Suzy is a journalist version of this. Every time she appears, often or always around her "willing" assistant Collin, she's doing something over-the-top and insane. This mostly involves trying to get the main character Max to join the Journalism Club at the school. Or blackmail. And in the spinoff section, ''Supernormal'', she has a single appearance that further cements the evidence she's slightly off...and a fan of circular journalism. [[http://paranatural.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/SUPERNORMAL2.jpg See it here]].
%% * ''Webcomic/SquidRow'': Spill is this sometimes.
%% * ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}'': [[TheDitz Larima]] [[BewareOfTheNiceOnes Torbern]] once accidentally [[CrowningMomentOfFunny wiped herself out]] after she took down an enemy.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Nora is an energetic [[MotorMouth non-stop talker]] who doesn't appear to have an off switch even at the crack of dawn. She's even accompanied by her own unique zany music score for when she really gets going. Contrast with her partner Ren, who [[NotAMorningPerson needs to be kicked out of bed in the morning]] and who [[TheQuietOne barely talks]]. Not even brushing her teeth or eating breakfast slows her down. The quietest and most still she gets is when the Headmaster is explaining their first task, but she interrupts him once and can be seen in the background bouncing energetically on her heels as she waits for the task to begin. Ren seems to tolerate her energy and MotorMouth with good humor and affection.
[[/folder]]

%% [[folder:Web Original]]
%% * ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'': Ginny, as part of her ManicPixieDreamGirl persona. Cho comes close as well.
%% * [[http://www.youtube.com/user/boxxybabee Boxxybabee]]. 'Nuff said.
%% * ''Roleplay/DeptHeavenApocrypha'': Seth, full stop. [[spoiler:She slows down a little while suffering from her HeroicBSOD, but she's starting to get better now]].
%% * ''Website/GaiaOnline'': Rina and the {{squee}}s.
%% * ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'': Gimmick, a KidHero GadgeteerGenius who fights crime in Saint Louis, Missouri.
%% * ''Literature/LandGames'': Mei.
%% * ''Roleplay/MSFHighForum'': Arella. So, so much.
%% * ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest V4'': Maria Graham, who's an odd mix of Genki Girl, {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, and StepfordSmiler.
%% * ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Toni Chandler, AKA Chaka, is definitely a Genki Girl. She's learned to stay away from caffeine and sugar (and to be very careful with [[GRatedDrug chocolate]], which acts as an aphrodisiac for her).
%% [[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'': Francine. She can be high-energy and somewhat crazy.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': [[PerkyFemaleMinion Ty Lee]], in contrast to her {{Foil}}, EmotionlessGirl Mai.
%% ** ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': The latest Avatar, Korra, in contrast to her mentor [[TheComicallySerious Tenzin]].
%% ** One of Tenzin's children, Ikki, is this trope personified. Like Ty Lee and Korra, Ikki even has a foil to make her genki nature even more obvious (her [[SiblingYinYang sister]], [[CuteBookworm Jinora]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': ComicBook/HarleyQuinn.
** Even in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''. Though she is less humorous and more dangerously psychotic like in the comics.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/CuriousGeorge'': A nonhuman example: Charkie.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'': Gadget is a WrenchWench very cheerful and energetic.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': Kuki Sanban (Numbuh Three). Her mom's name is even "Genki". Oh, and they're [[TalkingToHimself voiced by]] [[Creator/LaurenTom the same actress]].
%% * ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': Quinn =lapses into this at times. Stacey maybe even more so.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Dee Dee, the hyperactive sister of Dexter.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'': Frida Suarez.
* ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'': Yo is so genki, she can appear in two places at once.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'': Goo is a straight-up example. Madame Foster herself sometimes fills this role, too, despite the fact that she's an old lady. Coco also shows elements of this at times, with a heavy dose of {{Cloudcuckoolander}} and TheUnintelligible.
* ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'': Pistol is constantly hyper. As her neighbor Max once put it, "watching Pistol is like nailing Jell-O to a tree". Playing with her is considered a nuisance at best and outright torture at worst, and, if they can, people try to avoid the task or pass it on to others, usually stopping at ExtremeDoormat PJ unless he manages to hide. It's fairly surprising, considering that her father is very lazy and her mother and brother take turns being the OnlySaneMan.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': Mabel Pines is loud, playful, and enthusiastic about just about everything ("Yay, grass!").
%% * ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'': Birdgirl.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/{{Hero 108}}'': Mystique Sonia.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': Moofy, a one-shot character, is both a hilarious and downright scary example of this trope.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'': Pepper Potts is a big time Genki Girl.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'': Saffi.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'': June started out as one of these, as well as TheDitz. In season two, she's still this trope at times, but much more snarky. In season three, this starts to drop a little bit more as she becomes a sarcastic {{Jerkass}}, and by season four, this is gone and she became a slight example of the [[OnlySaneMan only sane girl]].
%% * ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'': Minka Mark.
%% ** Especially Buttercream. [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Dear]] [[TalkativeLoon God]], ''[[BuffySpeak Buttercream]]''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOPmibL-LI4 Pinkie Pie]] is this merged with {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. Her energy [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] by pure accident! "Party of One" explores (and later deconstructs) this; there ''is'' a limit to her energy, but it is significantly higher than everyone else's. Then you watch her get angry and find out her energy can be used for more than just bouncing happily.... "Too Many Pinkies" has Pinkie inadvertently creating an unruly horde of {{flanderiz|ation}}ed clones of herself. Her friends, used to Pinkie embodying this trope, can't tell the difference between the mindless clones who constantly spout "FUN!" and the real Pinkie. This causes Pinkie to have an existential crisis and seriously consider the possibility that [[CloningBlues she's just a clone who thinks she's real]].
** The Cutie Mark Crusaders. Individually, they're energetic. Together, they egg each other on and build off each other to astonishing lengths.
** Rainbow Dash, surprisingly, counts as well, especially in later episodes with her excitement over the new ''Daring Do'' book and the Equestria Games. In the latter, she flat-out channels Pinkie Pie for the whole episode.
* From the original ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'', we have Surprise, whom FIM Pinkie is heavily based off of. She enjoys pranking people, is very active, and is very loud.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3'': Pinkie Pie isn't ''quite'' as madcap as her ''FIM'' version, but she loves parties and is obsessed with the color pink.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Candace Flynn. Her energy levels can rival her brothers', for starters.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'': Cindy, one of the kindergartners. Miss Grotke can be a mild example at times.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom'': Iris.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/SuperBestFriendsForever'': Batgirl.
%% ** Her ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]'' incarnation is this at times.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Starfire. All that emotional energy is the source of her super powers. 'Joy' for Flight, 'confidence' for super strength, and general perkiness.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Uniqua is one. In one episode, usually-{{Tsundere}} Tasha got to be the Genki Girl and show her deredere side.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'': Lola Bunny. She's an energetic Cloudcuckoolander with a MotorMouth.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyB'': Bessie Higgenbottom is an ambitious and optimistic 9-year-old Honeybee Scout who believes that she will become a superhero called "The Mighty B" if she collects every Honeybee badge.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'': Izzy. So genki, that she's even enthusiastic about getting poison ivy wrapped around her face as part of a challenge.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'': Miko, who transferred to an American school to escape a life of piano lessons and ends up in the middle of a war between alien robots, to her absolute delight. ''Also'' played by above mentioned Tania Gunadi, who is good at these.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'': Hay Lin loves life, designing clothes, painting, and [[BlowYouAway sending armies of mooks flying with a wave of her arm]].

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Music/LindseyStirling is a very extroverted and energetic musician whose [[https://www.youtube.com/user/LindseyTime/videos vlog]] is devoted, in significant part, to her antics involving pranks she plays on those around her, and special occasions like "half Christmas".
%% * [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcydqSpYN00 Boxxy]]. Internet wars were started over her new-found popularity, with many users (rather hostilely) asking "how much genki is too much?".
* Creator/MileyCyrus. Her little sister Noah is also extremely bubbly, energetic and confident, but she's just 13, so who knows how she'll turn out.
%% * Music/ArianaGrande.
%% * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RZo4lpc9S0 Comedian Elvira Kurt breathes genki]].
%% * Creator/KristenSchaal seems to have forged an entire career out of playing Genki Girls. Her real life persona is ''slightly'' less genki than her various animated ones, but not by much.
* Hayley Williams of Music/{{Paramore}}, so, so much, if the way she answers interviews, tweets, and acts on stage is anything to go by. Not many people would tweet about how much underwear they're going to buy or make jokes about their own chest during an interview.
* Creator/FeliciaDay. Her promotional video for ''WebVideo/DragonAgeRedemption'' is marked by energetic smiling, bobbing, and annotating.
%% * Creator/KarenGillan.
* Creator/AmandaTapping, who never seems to slow down and is always bright, bubbly, enthusiastic, and an all-around goofball.
%% * Creator/DemiLovato, when she's in a good mood or with her fans, especially in regards to her fans.
%% * Creator/MichelleCreber, who voices Apple Bloom on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Just listen to her interviews.
%% ** Creator/ClaireCorlett (Sweetie Belle) even moreso. Her [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ClaireCoaCoaNutz YouTube account]] has examples of her genki-ness.
%% * Music/GreyDeLisle. Several of the characters seen in the "Western Animation" section were voiced by her. That cannot be a coincidence.
%% * Similarly, Creator/TaraStrong isn't too far removed from some of her more genki roles in real life.
%% * Japanese singer and actress Tomoe Shinohara. "Mikakuru-kuru-kuru-kuru-kuru-kuru~!"
* Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s ring announcer Lilian Garcia, as a glance at her web show with Wrestling/TorrieWilson and Candice Michelle will demonstrate. It rubbed off on actress Maria Menounos when she guest starred. Unless she was waving beer cans and asking the others to feel how warm her chest was just to impress Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin...
* Music/DeltaGoodrem can barely sit still during her interviews and appears to be endlessly bright and cheery.
%% * Rebecca Knox is like this in real life. In the ring, [[ScreamingWarrior not so much]].
%% * Creator/EllenDeGeneres.
%% * Creator/MillaJovovich. Just watch her interviews or listen to her DVD Commentaries.
%% * Creator/KirstenDunst.
%% * Creator/CameronDiaz.
%% * Creator/MilaKunis.
%% * Creator/JenniferLoveHewitt.
* Kimi Ward Encarnacion, lead singer of [[TheNineties Nineties]] alternative band Moonpools & Caterpillars. Her signature live performance move was ''hopping'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzD2yZ1m0v4 up and down on stage]]. Even a 15-year hiatus couldn't [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLpJCdB4PWQ slow her enthusiasm]].
%% * In general, the majority of Creator/DisneyChannel actresses tend to fall under this, but Creator/SierraMcCormick [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=LnNg-up7rK8 is right up there]] [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=eYdpL3jLJWk with the best]] [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=-rX0UWFtMwI of them]]. Creator/RowanBlanchard broke it UpToEleven.
%% * Creator/GraceHelbig.

!!Male examples:

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/AreaNoKishi'': Kakeru, TheProtagonist, is a student who channels his love of {{foot|yRules}}ball into working tirelessly, first as manager for his high school football team, and, later in the series, to overcome obstacles and become a player himself.
%% * ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'': Just like Taiwan is the Genki Girl from the Asian Group, her "brother" South Korea fits the bill.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Asano Keigo is constantly active and cheerful (or entirely down in the dumps), to the point that he gets on Ichigo's nerves. Though he does have some introspective moments, they are few and far between.
* ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'': Jackie Gudelhian, Johji Ohtomo and Bleed Kaga are adult versions of the trope. The latter, however, drops off his genki-ness in the ''ZERO'' arc when he began to become serious.
* ''Anime/MonsterRancher'': Genki. His CatchPhrase is "My name means energy and I've got lots and lots of it!"
* The ever-enthusiastic Manga/{{Naruto}} attacks everything with great energy--[[CatchPhrase believe it]]!
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Luffy is always energetic and getting into trouble and his nakama are always dragged along with his enthusiasm.
%% * ''Anime/ImGonnaBeAnAngel'': Raphael, to a lesser degree.
%% * ''Manga/SoulEater'': Black☆Star. He's so hyperactive he is annoying to some and endearing to others.
%% * ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'': The younger Tsubasa and ''especially'' Shingo Aoi.
[[/folder]]

%% [[folder:Comic Books]]
%% * Most of the Comicbook/{{Robin}}s have been this to some extent, although this was most obvious in Golden Age Robin (which was translated into that of [[Series/{{Batman}} the TV series]]).
%% [[/folder]]

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

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''Literature/TheColSecTrilogy'': Jeko is a small, wiry, hyperactive young man who's [[TheGadfly always trying to rile up]] the resident {{tsundere}}. (On an off note, although it's ''not'' anime, it's mentioned at one point that he's Japanese-American.) Enough said.
%% * ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'': Fregley.
%% * ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'': Billy Deep, who constantly dreams of becoming an underwater explorer. Unlike most protagonists, he actively seeks out adventure.
* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'': Ludo Bagman is energetic and enthusiastic; he is also described as resembling and acting like an overgrown schoolboy.
* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Aio acts like he's on a perpetual sugar high. Pudding is his favorite food.
* ''Literature/TheQuestOfTheUnaligned'': Nahruahn, due to the mental effects of his wind magic. His EstablishingCharacterMoment comes when, upon being introduced to the hero, he gives an eleven-line monologue in a single sentence without stopping to breathe.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/BandOfBrothers'':
** George Luz is the most prominent in the cast. He's easily the biggest wisecracker of the group, is eternally cheerful and frequently rattles off impressions of everyone else. Such was the strength of his character that [[spoiler: in real life, 1600 people attended his funeral in 1998]].
** Frank Perconte who is Luz's best friend. Not quite to the same degree but he's a definite cheerful fellow who makes plenty of wisecracks. He unfortunately is more affected by the war that when he snaps at another soldier, he's shown to instantly regret it.
** Joe Liebgott reveals that he's this when he engages [[CulturedWarrior Webster]] in an excited discussion about books. He's also a bit of a BloodKnight with hatred for the Germans, making this a rather unfortunate combination for the enemy.
** Private O'Keefe doesn't get as much screen time as the others but he shows signs of this. It irritates his wartorn comrades, who don't appreciate his NewMeat naivety regarding war.
* ''Series/OnceUponATime'': Henry is this mostly in the first season. He's eternally optimistic and manages to quickly win over his IceQueen of a mother with his Genki ways. He mellows out during Season 2 though.
* Chip of ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' with his {{Adorkable}} love of fairy tales and comic books, and his sheer enthusiasm for learning new spells.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* ''ComicStrip/BeetleBailey'': Asian TokenMinority character Corporal Yo sometimes has the trait of getting really, really excited about anything he finds interesting, and he likes to run around doing everything as quickly and efficiently as possible.
%% * ''ComicStrip/OverTheHedge'': Hammy is a Genki [[NuttySquirrel Squirrel]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/KofiKingston can't seem to go two minutes without jumping around and clapping. He doesn't seem to be capable of doing a wrestling move without 200% genki-energy behind it.
* Mojo Rawley's schtick is this, with his entrance having him waving a flag around everywhere. His CatchPhrase is "stay hyped".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* ''Series/ThePajanimals'': Squacky tends to speak very quickly and loudly; he's possessed of very high energy and often has trouble getting to sleep at night.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'': Bartz is the first protagonist to start a trend of cheerful heroes throughout the series.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'': Zell, whose character introduction is literally him back-flipping into the room. He apparently used to zoom down the hallways on a hovering skateboard and has been known to throw really aggressive tantrums when the cafeteria is out of hot dogs. Adding to the effect, he also talks like he's PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'': Zidane overlaps with TheCasanova. His genki side really comes out whenever he's trying to woo the princess. It's no surprise that Eiko (mentioned above) develops a crush on him.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Tidus certainly fits. Our first proper impression of him is him enthusiastically signing autographs for his fans and he manages to shock all the people of Spira with his attitude. [[DeadpanSnarker Lulu]] remarks that he "really do[es] come from a world where there is no Sin" after having experienced a few weeks with him. Surprise surprise, he and Rikku (mentioned above) are LikeBrotherAndSister.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' has Gippal; whose theme is an energetic guitar riff, he's endlessly bright and cheery and doesn't seem to have a sense of personal boundaries. He has ShipTease with - you guessed it - Rikku. His English voice actor Rick Gomez is one in real life too.
%% ** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'': Vaan fills in this spot alongside Penelo in an otherwise very no-nonsense group.
%% ** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyDimensions'': Sol, whose optimistic energy is impossible to dent.
%% ** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyType0'': Jack.
%% * ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' and ''Radiant Dawn'': Kieran, a Genki Boy who is obsessed with glory. Unfortunately, he and Mia never interact.
%% * ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'': SurferDude Gym Leader Marlon.
%% * [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Both Mario and Luigi]].
%% * ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': The Scout.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': Normally, Elliot doesn't qualify for this trope, but he can shapeshift into various female forms, a few of which have their own personalities. There's one called the "Party Girl Form", which is Elliot on a shapeshifting GenderBender with a MotorMouth and feeling like he just downed a hundred shots of espresso. This form has been dubbed "Heidi" after another character got caught trying to warn party-Elliot to "hide"[[note]]he'd just been fighting monsters as a sexy superheroine and the party girl form is supposed to be a secret identity[[/note]] and covering it up by pretending it was the party girl's name. [[FridgeBrilliance The name works on another level, as well]]: "Heidi" is very similar to "[[Literature/JekyllAndHyde Hyde]]", which works since this form and personality is so radically different from Elliot's own.
* ''Webcomic/MonsterOfTheWeek'': Mulder turns into Genki Guy, always full of energy and ready to rush into any situation in his hurry to prove monsters, not to mention his fanboy reaction to some creeps. It's visible from the very first panel, although he gets calmer as the series progresses.
%% * ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'': Prestige.
* ''Webcomic/{{Sakana}}'': [[FunPersonified Taisei]], who is [[UpToEleven extremely cheerful]], lighthearted, and energetic.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Elan is happy-go-lucky and energetic.
* ''Webcomic/ThreeJaguars'': [[http://threejaguarscomic.net/?comic=opportunity-cost-page-1 Marketer, with her boundless energy]].
* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Reynir is almost always happy, with cheerful, nigh-[[ThePollyanna Pollyanna]] attitude. He always wants to be some help and is really excited when he helps someone in a dream.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''[[WebVideo/JesseCox OMFGCata]]'': Jesse Cox is generally quite cheerful and energetic, much to the dismay of his DeadpanSnarker comrade [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]].
* This is LetsPlay/{{Raocow}}'s default setting whenever in-character for his Let's Plays. Nearly all of his videos have him happily and constantly rattling off {{Breathless Non Sequitur}}s, silly noises, [[WithLyrics random lyrics to the in-game music]], or cheerful laughter at the slightest provocation. It's easy to tell when a level is beginning to grind at him, because his genki side starts to die down.
%% * LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}}:
%% ** LetsPlay/InTheLittleWood is this at times.
%% ** LetsPlay/SimonLane can also be cheerful and energetic, but he's just as often sarcastic (and sometimes sarcastically cheerful) and kind of a jerkass.
%% * LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}}, especially compared to his counterparts on LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
%% * ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'': [[KidHero Finn]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Aang--when not having to save the world--is cheerfully energetic and quite confident. He provides a contrast to the other guys in his group, snarky Sokka and [[spoiler:brooding Zuko]].
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'': Odd Della Robbia has plenty of energy and confidence, and his Lyoko Warrior form is cat-based.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Peter Griffin is either this or a ManChild.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010'': Niblet.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'': T.J. Detweiler.
%% * WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants.
* ''WesternAnimation/OverTheHedge'': Hammy, so much so that the end of the movie involves him drinking energy drinks until he enters CaffeineBulletTime.
%% * The ''[[EvilIsHammy very]]'' [[EvilIsHammy hammy]] Chief Blue Meanie from Music/TheBeatles movie ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine''.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'': Ed, Eddy and Jonny.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'': Sheen.
[[/folder]]

%% * Creator/RossNoble's stage persona.
%% * Ditto Russell Watson.
%% * Numerous scientifically-minded fellows promote scientific approaches to life with their playful, geeky demeanor:
%% ** [[Series/MythBusters Adam Savage]].
%% ** [[Series/GoodEats Alton Brown]].
%% ** Series/{{Bill Nye|TheScienceGuy}}.
%% ** Neil deGrasse Tyson.
* [=YouTuber=] LetsPlay/PewDiePie, known for rather MORE-than-maniacal energy.

%% * Ventriloquist Creator/JeffDunham's puppet, Peanut.
* Marty Lublin, the traveling host at ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' auditions. He is fond of jumping around the stage and yelling. The show wants enthusiastic contestants, so why not get a very energetic guy to determine if they're good enough for the show?
