Original Ghouls

     Frankie Stein 
Voiced By: Kate Higgins
Daughter of Frankenstein's Monster and his bride, mad scientists in this universe. In all continuities, she is stated to only be 15 days old at the start and attends high school as the "new girl". Plucky, fun-loving and klutzy, she is more often than not the main character.
  • Accidental Athlete: In "Fearleading Tryouts" she trips into the gym and with a bit of convenient tripping and a few of her own flying limbs, aces the audition.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has mint green skin.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Due to her tendency to fall apart in the least convenient moments.
  • Disney Death: In Freaky Fusion, she uses her own life force, or Spark, to take down a rampaging creation of her grandfather Viktor that's captured her friends and threatens to destroy them. Doing so however uses her up, and she's effectively dead until her friends and schoolmates pull together to recharge her.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: Her father.
  • Helping Hands: Frankieís hands whenever her stitches come loose.
  • The Hero: She always changes the way things were for the better.
  • Idea Bulb: Variation. Her neckbolts often spark when she gets an idea.
  • Identical Stranger: To a human scientist who came to Skull Shores sometime in the 20th century, sharing the same striped hair and heterochromia. Some fans believe that due to Frankie's patchwork nature, that same scientist may have been Human Resources for Frankie's head.
  • Mad Scientist: Well, she did build herself a boyfriend once.
  • Multicolored Hair: Although usually only possessing black and white hair, she gets blue and yellow hair in her Freaky Fusion release.
  • NaÔve Newcomer: At first, but integrates well.
  • Sense Freak: With all the basic intelligence of the average 15-year old, yet little experience outside, everything is new to her, and she wants to experience it all. She learns more over time
  • Ship Tease: With both Jackson and Holt — twice! They sort of got together, took a break so the boys could sort out their issues, and have been teasing at getting back together for a while.
  • Shock and Awe: Powered by electricity, and one time uses it in direct combat with jumper cable clamps on her bolts and a metal floor.
  • Skunk Stripe: Alternating skunk stripes throughout her hair.
  • Tomboyish Name
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Well, her father is Frankenstein's Monster.
  • Younger Than They Look: At the beginning of the series proper, she's 15 days old. Now, her age is listed as "How many days has it been now?". She is currently likely to be around a year or two.

Voiced By: Debi Derryberry
The adopted daughter of Dracula. At 1600 years old she's peppy, sweet, and loves helping and being around her friends (and her boyfriend Clawd Wolf). Notable as being one of the only, if not the first, true vegetarian vampire, as she faints at the sight of blood and survives mostly on supplements and fruit, and shortly ran her own newsletter on the topic: V.A.M.P. - Vampires Advocating Meatless Protein. Diaries and other material heavily imply she wasn't always like this. After long being devoid of the powers granted to vampires, she received them in "Frights, Camera, Action".
  • A Day in the Limelight: She's the main star in "Frights, Camera, Action", and the plot centers around us learning some of Draculaura's history.
  • Afraid of Blood: Draculaura has a tendency to faint even at the mere mention of blood.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Her skin is light pink, with a hot pink heart birthmark on her right cheek.
  • The Atoner: Her diary actually implies that she is one. When her dad tells her that he wishes she'd return to "proper" vampire ways, she writes that she is resolved to never go back to how she was before.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Dark Horse Victory: In "Talon Show", a webisode mainly focusing on Cleo and Clawdeen going to huge measures to score a role in a play, she gets the part at the end. And does pretty well.
  • The Ditz: To a very large degree, but she can occasionally show insight.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Many of her outfits show degrees of this.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Draculaura certainly comes across as one.
  • Fun with Acronyms: her newsletter "V.A.M.P." — "Vampires Advocating Meatless Protein."
  • Genki Girl: In the beginning she was super flighty and hyper, but she's a little mellower now.
    • The Pollyanna: She's got an idealistic view of life that she never lets go of. Considering the Dark and Troubled Past we've gotten glimpses of, that could be her way of dealing with life—letting go of old miseries and looking towards the bright and happy things and the monsters she loves.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Featured in many of her dolls, and it's her default haistyle in the cartoon.
  • Girly Girl: To Lagoona's Tomboy, in the original ghouls.
  • Granola Girl: Vegetarianism is a big part of her character, but with a passion for legendary shopping sprees and luxury items she's far from a dirty hippie.
  • Happily Adopted: As revealed in her second edition diary, by Dracula.
  • Hidden Depths: Draculaura's 2nd edition diary provides some tantalizing hints at quite the Dark and Troubled Past—her father, rather than the Dracula we know, is an even older master vampire (Bram Stoker's villain was a less powerful upstart who used her father's name to impress and terrorize locals til he fell prey to Laser-Guided Karma), who took in Draculaura (perhaps just Laura then) and her mother "when no one else would" over a thousand years ago.
    • The brief diary for her collector doll comes with a timeline— her father was the Roman soldier Gaius who fell in love with her mother Camilla, but he died in battle before she was born. Dracula, having known and been friends with Gaius' great grandfather moved his home to Dacia and took Camilla in. Draculaura was named in his honor at birth. In the year she turned 16, a plague swept the village they lived in and claimed Camilla's life. Fearful to lose Draculaura as well, Dracula turned her into a vampire.
  • Joshikousei: In "Sayonara Draculaura", she gets a Sailor Fuku at the Shibooya exchange school. Her classmates there count, too.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Cute, cheerful, and iconically designed.
  • Let Me Get This Straight: In Boo York, Boo York after Pharaoh's big performance, she rattles off one of these as a run-on paragraph. True to form for MH's resident Motor Mouth.
    Draculaura: So let me see if I've got this right. First Deuce breaks up with Cleo. Then Cleo decides to do that comet ceremony thing with Seth Ptolemy. But Seth is all like, "Nope, never mind, and by the way, I'm that rapper Pharaoh and (throws up gang signs) I want to fang out with Catty Noir." And now you're saying that this party is completely out of King Tutankrab-rolls? (crying noise)
  • Military Brat: Her birth father and adoptive father both were in the Roman army. The former died in battle.
  • Missing Mom: Camilla, who died of The Black Death. Draculaura now has a not-wicked stepmother (Ramoanah) as of "Draculaura and the New Stepmomster".
  • Motor Mouth: While they're driving to school, she puts Clawd to sleep with a gossip tirade.
  • Multicolored Hair: While usually black with pink streaks, it has been pink with black undertone, or black with yellow and pink streaks.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: In Frights, Camera, Action she uses this to distract Stoker from the ghouls, amping up her ditziness.
    Draculaura: Pink's my favorite color. What's yours?
    Stoker: (exasperated sigh)
  • Odango: Her doll for the Fearleading 3-Pack sports odango pigtails.
  • Official Couple: With Clawd.
  • Older Than They Look: She's 1599 years old at the beginning of the series. A big show was made of her turning 1600 as it was used for both a doll collection/line (Draculaura's Sweet 1600) and it was the main event of Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Not too different though, just vegetarian.
  • Perky Goth: Just about the happiest gothic lolita vampire you've ever seen!
  • Pointy Ears: Her entire facial design is a bit of a shout-out to Bela Lugosi.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Her basic outfit looks like fishnets under a miniskirt. They're actually fishnet tights which end right above the boots.
  • The Protagonist: She's the leading character in the short anime adaptation.
  • Purple Eyes: They're a very light mauve, not grey.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Mostly pink hair, and a really sweet kid.
  • Shout-Out: Her Elegant Gothic Lolita style and tattoo-like birthmark on her cheek recall Emilie Autumn.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Earlier, a main plot point including her was her various follies with dating. As of Volume 3, she's with Clawd for the long run.
  • Stocking Filler: In her "Day at the Maul" fashion pack, the skirt comes with black stockings over white fishnets.
  • Vampire Vords: She can pronounce her Ws, at least, but she otherwise has a noticeable (and very cute) Hungarian/Romanian accent.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: Played absolutely straight. She drinks no blood at all.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: In the beginning, she couldn't even say the word blood without fainting (or nearly fainting). As of about Volume 4, this doesn't come up anymore.

     Clawdeen Wolf 
Voiced By: Salli Saffioti
Daughter of The Wolf Man. A fashionista and neophyte fashion designer, she's forthright and has a knack for looking into tough situations. Fiercely loyal to her friends, fiercely protective of her friends, and all-around fierce.
  • Bald Women: In Clawd's first release diary it's revealed she once accidentally snipped all of her hair off. It grew back quickly, but it still left her pretty down. Draculaura even suggested her and Frankie cut all their hair off too in solidarity... until Frankie reminded her that unlike werewolves, their hair would take a much longer time to grow back.
  • The Big Girl
  • Big Sister Instinct: Djinni learns this in 13 Wishes: don't mess with Howleen.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Yeah. Not so cute if she's threatening her bro, though.
  • Femme Fatalons: Which she once used to puncture a casketball just by gripping it too hard.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: While Clawdeen's features are consistently wolflike, she usually keeps her animalistic side under control... except during the full moon (when she becomes more daring and energetic than usual).
    • "Fur Will Fly" hinted the full moon was the trump card she used to beat Heath Burns (he didn't know that day was a full moon, and it gave her super-speed, beating him even with his head start).
  • The Fashionista: Notable in that she views fashion both as an art and in a business sense; she hopes to one day own her own fashion line, and plans her classes accordingly. It was even a major plot point in Scaris: City of Frights.
  • Gold Makes Everything Shiny: Few dolls of hers have been released without a gold accent. Shares gold as a favorite color with Cleo.
  • Multicolored Hair: See Kaleidoscope Hair.
  • Nobody Touches the Hair: She is adamant about being her own hair stylist, and does a very good job.
  • Kaleidoscope Hair: It's explained in-universe that the one benefit of Clawdeen's constantly growing hair is that it allows her to be very experimental with it, so in each doll of hers her hair undergoes a substantial color change.
  • The Nose Knows: It comes with being a werewolf. The [Trope Name] is even a family catchphrase.
  • The Rival: At first with Cleo, but they got over it.
  • Traumatic Haircut: See Bald Women.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is constantly growing—and not just the hair on her head, leading her to have to pluck and wax continuously (she has to do so three times a day, as noted by her "Dawn of the Dance" itinerary). However, it also allows her to be more experimental with her hairstyles— shown in the doll lines with various lengths.
  • Southies: She and her sisters, but not her brother speak with a faint Bahston accent.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • Unusual Ears: Wolf ears, on top of her head.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She's no stranger to uncommon shades in her locks.

     Lagoona Blue 
Voiced By: Laura Bailey
Daughter of the Sea Monster. A level-headed and laid-back character, Lagoona spends most of her time in the water (either in the ocean or the school's swimming pool) and is the gang's resident surfer girl and school swim captain. Amiable and helpful to almost everyone, she usually has to ground her friends if they get carried away. As a saltwater monster she frequently has issues with her freshwater boyfriend Gillington "Gil" Webber, because of his parents' prejudice towards her.

     Cleo De Nile 
Voiced By: Salli Saffioti
Daughter of the Mummy, here Ramses De Nile by name. Resident Alpha Bitch and head of the fearleading squad, she's known mostly for her wealth and icy personality at school. In truth, she's quite sensitive and down to earth, but has been groomed to think of herself as better than everyone else.
  • Arranged Marriage: In Boo York, Boo York Ramses and Nefera attempt to manipulate her into one with Seth Ptolemy, named a promise ceremony.
  • Bandage Babe
  • Big Bad: Of the first TV Special and the first half of the Volume 1-webisodes.
  • Characterization Marches On: Has what might be the strongest and most consistent development of any character in the series.
  • The Cheerleader: Head fearleader of the squad.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: From a narcissistic, self serving Alpha Bitch antagonist to a generous, loyal
  • Family Honor: Most of the more ambitious things Cleo does is because she feels obliged to as a De Nile.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: "Freaky Fridate" has this happen with Ghoulia when she accidentally touches one of Daddy's idols that Ghoulia's also holding.
  • Gold Makes Everything Shiny: Not a doll release of hers without a gold accent, and her favorite color (shared with Clawdeen) is gold.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: To go with her Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Cleo takes this to the highest level by having actual streaks of gold in her basic look's otherwise brown hair. All of her doll releases flaunt a splash of gold hair.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Cleo started out as a bit of a snob/bully and the series' Big Bad, but has progressed into a supportive friend, especially in the Breather Episode about Ghoulia and Dead Fast. She is now a part of the Original Ghouls, and has gone from Alpha Bitch to Lovable Alpha Bitch for good.
  • Hidden Depths: At first a Straw Character antagonist, her vulnerabilities and insecurities have now come to light. She's proud and domineering, but she's truly a princess of the people. In Boo York, Boo York, it's shown in her heart she knows that as a queen-to-be, she must give the people what they want.
    • As of Season 3, she treats all of her friends as she does Ghoulia - caring and compassionate but still dominant.
    • The diary included in her 'Gloom and Bloom' release is a richly detailed account of her backstory and how her family came to be in their current form.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Her growth in becoming a nicer person comes to a head when she sends all ten-thousand of her royal servants to the comic auction that Ghoulia couldn't attend in order to win said comic for her. But, of course, the comic is slipped to Ghoulia discreetly, and Cleo tells the other ghouls not to let this info get around and ruin her rep.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Cleo can be quite stuck-up and mean to the ghouls, but is also happy to help them when there is a problem. She "secretly" thanks Ghoulia for all her help by getting her the rare Dead Fast comic.
  • The Lancer: She has connections.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Cleo acts egocentric and temperamental, but when push comes to shove, she's a kind and loyal friend.
  • Missing Mom
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Mummy
  • Official Couple: With Deuce. Also Clawd, pre-series.

  • Rich Bitch
  • Royal Brat: Egyptian heritage, folks!
    • This behavior was drilled into her by her father whom she was entombed with for several thousand years. She's gotten much better, though.
  • True Blue Femininity: She exudes it more than the others.
  • "Well Done, Daughter" Ghoul: In Ghouls Rule! and Boo York, Boo York.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Various releases give her teal or blue streaks, and in her Creepateria release it's got purple streaks.

     Ghoulia Yelps 
Voiced By: Audu Paden
Daughter of the Zombies. Despite only being able to speak zombie, she's widely known as the smartest girl in school. She is also Cleo's best friend (and all-around personal assistant).
  • '80s Hair
  • Adorkable: Totally. The Geek Shriek line plays this up.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She's a very light grey.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: In "Dodgeskull" she calculates in "Charlie-Vision" how best to take out a group of heckling classmates with a dodgeball. She gets them all and nails the lead heckler a few times for good measure—despite the fact she should have lost the game the moment she dropped the ball.
  • Badass: As revealed in Unlife to Live. She single-handily solves ALL the problems in the school, but nobody knows...and she just appears to be sitting around.
    • And in Boo York, Boo York (along with Abbey Bominable) is able to stop Astranova's ship from crashing into Boo York City, averting an Earth-Shattering Kaboom.
  • Badass Adorable: Big eyed adorkable zombie girl who is shown in Freaky Fusion to be able to fight a dinosaur back into its' own time.
  • Badass Bookworm: Solves big problems through intelligence, and converted a significant part of the school underbelly into her own personal lab.
  • Creator Cameo: See Crossdressing Voice.
  • Crossdressing Voice: Ghoulia's actually voiced by the producer/director of the series, Audu Paden.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Light blue.
  • The Dragon: To Cleo. She is the mostly in the first movie and the first season of the webisodes, but with Cleo having a Heel-Face Turn, Ghoulia gradually grows into her own character.
  • Fantastic Racism: In her diary, she implies that that zombies are not well liked for being hard to understand and their sluggish behavior. Ghoulia even buys a "Zombies Are Monsters Too" shirt to make a statement, but can't bear to wear it openly.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: "Freaky Fridate" has this happen with Cleo when Cleo accidentally touches one of Dad's idols that Ghoulia's holding.
  • Frozen Face: Though she can occasionally force a rather pained-looking Un-Smile, a groan, or even, in the case of the webisode "Mad Science Fair", a truly epic Slasher Smile that only manages to dodge being terrifying by happening as she finally gets back at Cleo for using her.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Not only is she the smartest ghoul in the school, but she once invented a two story tall trash-to-fuel recycling machine as a Mad Science Fair project. Also note the comet-stopping.
  • Gamer Chick: Not as pronounced as it is with Kjersti Trollson, but Ghoulia's fond of gaming and regularly gets high scores in a Dead Fast licensed game. She beats Kjersti twice: in an online MMORPG PvP battle, and in the leaderboard for Dead Fast. When Kjersti comes to Monster High to meet her greatest rival, they end up becoming friends over their mutual love of video games.
  • Good with Numbers:
  • Hollywood Hacking: Ghoulia can hack anything in a few seconds with her laptop, including satellites. Well, almost anything...she couldn't hack the gossip column to find out who was running it.
  • Hollywood Nerd: But also quite popular.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: The zombie language is nothing more than groans, but the other monsters mostly understand her.
  • Meganekko: Rarely seen without her pair of signature cat-eyes, which she herself refers to as "nerd glasses".
  • Morality Pet: To Cleo as her best friend: in Fright On! her unconditional friendship makes Cleo tear up.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Even for a zombie nerd girl, she's quite a hottie.
  • Official Couple: With Slo Mo.
  • One of Us: In-universe; the 2011 Monster High San Diego Comic Convention doll is Ghoulia dressed in a custom version of the costume worn by her favorite superhero, Dead Fast, that she just happens to be wearing to Necro Con. She's also in the school's comic book club.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Ghoulia can't speak anything other than zombie, but she happens to be the smartest student in school and prefers fast food over brains. Sometimes she might only do one major action but it makes or saves the day in each episode... and movie.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Ghoulia's right!" Pretty much every one of the main characters has said this at least once.
  • Shrinking Violet: The shyest among the ghouls.
  • The Smart Girl: For real?
  • Techno Wizard: She's great with that laptop of hers, and made a video game just to decide who she'd date in less than a day.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: In the anime adaption, Ghoulia's pet owl, Sir Hoots-a-lot, speaks for her in lieu of zombie moans.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: In various shades.

Student Bodies, etc.


     Abbey Bominable 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
Daughter of The Yeti. A foreign exchange student from the mountains who tends to unintentionally insult other monsters with her awkward grasp of the English language, along with other culture clashes.

     Spectra Vondergeist 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
The soft-voiced, but not necessarily soft-spoken daughter of ghosts. Introduced as a ruthless and tricky gossip columnist who maintained the "Ghostly Gossip"; she was shown to be misunderstood of the influence of her column, but kept it up. As of Haunted she fully saw the harm rumors could cause, and decided to become a trustworthy journalist. She renamed her column the "Gory Gazette" following this change.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In the special Haunted.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: White in the extremities, with transparent limbs.
  • Arc Villain: She's the primary antagonist of the Ghostly Gossip arc in the second season of the webisodes, causing much problems for the heroes/protagonist.
  • The Atoner: Implied with the ball-and-chain motif (see Shout Out). While it isn't clear what her "crimes" may have been, Spectra says in her profile that she "find[s] that it's unhealthy to focus on what one does wrong especially when contrasted with all the good one does in the unlife."
  • Chained by Fashion: Every doll and related playset release of hers heavily features chains.
  • Goth
  • Heel-Face Turn: From a malicious gossip to a dedicated, kind, and heroic trustworthy news source.
  • Hidden Depths: In Clawd's first diary, she features as a nuisance twisting rumors to attack him. It's shown in her own first diary with Ghoulia that she actually had a pretty rough familial past, left unclear for now. In the short story that comes with her figure, it's revealed that the reason she became a gossip was to deal with the stress she got from moving schools from Haunted High to MH.
  • Invisibility: Well, she is a ghost. It comes in handy when you're the school's resident gossip.
  • Larynx Dissonance: Her soft, childlike voice highly contrasts with her angular features and chained up punk style.
  • Malicious Slander: Subverted, and Played With. In the webisode and CG special storyline Spectra never intended for her gossip column to harm anyone; she was just fascinated by the lives of the other ghouls and wanted to share their exploits with others, but was too shy to ask them for permission...or to ask them for the whole story, leading to a lot of misunderstandings from her only getting pieces of the story and then using her imagination to fill in the rest. In the diary storylines, she's a borderline-pathological liar who doesn't care if what she writes harms others— and gets ticked if people confront her about writing incorrect stories.
  • School Newspaper News Hound: Was this as the gossip columnist, and still this now.
  • Same Character, but Different: Her doll persona/diary narrative is a stark contrast to her webisode identity - Diary Spectra is malicious, rude and a pathological liar while her webisode/TV special identity is actually as soft spoken and sweet as her profile claims.
  • Shout-Out: Her ball-and-chain motif is similar to the chains that Jacob Marley's ghost wore as a representation of his earthly sins.
  • Shrinking Violet: While her gossip column is famous, Spectra herself is painfully shy. This is further alluded to with her character's mostly-purple color scheme. Following heavy Character Development she's a lot more outspoken now.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Blue, with purple sclera.
  • Techno Wizard: Not even Ghoulia can hack into her blog!
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: In Haunted, she gives one to Revenant.
  • Unreliable Narrator: Being the school gossip hound, she has this in spades. For example, while she claims in her first diary that she was once a royal, there's no way to tell if that's fact or fiction.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Violet with a hint of lavender.

Voiced By: Cindy Robinson
Daughter of The Phantom of the Opera. A bodacious character with a rockabilly style (think the 50s, but goth), she's a skilled musician— shown to skillfully play piano, violin, guitar and banjo. Tends to do her own thing most of the time, and won't hang with monsters unless they earn her respect.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Purple.
  • American Accents: Sports a southern accent with a noticeable drawl. It's justified by Word of God as her parents moved from France to New Orleans when she was little.
  • Cool Pet: Daddy-o Longlegs, her guitar playing pet spider.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Her first mention was in Holt's diary. She's reappeared in Spectra's diary and Cleo's 2nd edition diary.
  • Fiery Redhead: She doesn't take well to being threatened, nor being talked about behind her back.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has scars along the left side of her face that she covers with a musical note mask. Apparently they go all the way down her body.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Shatters a crystal idol with her voice in "Monster Mashionals Part 2", windows in Frights, Camera, Action, and "Uncommon Cold" shows that even her sneezes can be supersonic.
  • Official Couple: With Johnny Spirit as of Haunted.
  • One of the Boys: May be this, as she says her best friends are Deuce and Holt.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: In Haunted it's shown that phantoms and banshees count as ghosts and are thus susceptible to "detention chains", chains which cannot be destroyed but merely transferred and only worked off if the original chain-ee (Revenant) does good deeds.
  • Ship Sinking: She went out with Holt in the diaries, but because of Holt's temper, it didn't last long.
  • The Rival: Cleo initially sees her as this when it comes to Deuce, but Operetta isn't into him.

     Toralei Stripe 
Voiced By: America Young
A werecat who was introduced in the first episode of Volume 2. Her initial story was that when she got tired of Cleo's perfectionist attitude, she and the Werecat Twins left the fearleading squad, and later after seeing how well the squad was doing with Frankie, Draculaura and Clawdeen, she tried to rejoin only to be rejected by Cleo. In the Monster Mashionals storyline, Toralei leaked the Monster High routine to their rivals Smogsnort's Vampiric Academy as revenge, but failed to make them lose. She's later re-inducted to the squad, but gets suspended for cheating on a test. Her and the ghouls butt heads once more in Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love and Boo York, Boo York... but it doesn't end well either time, thanks to Villain Decay. She's now more of an occasional nuisance than a threat.

     Purrsephone and Meowlody 
Voiced By: America Young
Purrsephone & Meowlody, otherwise also known as the Werecat Twins, largely exist as a silent girl posse for Toralei.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In the special webisode, "Games Ghouls Play," with a pair of weremouse-twin brothers.
  • Always Identical Twins: Aside from the hair and their leg markings being on opposite legs. On their official artwork, their outfits are the same design, but in different colors with shoes that differ and different vest detail. Played more straight in the webisodes; they do little more than smirk at Toralei's shenanigans.
    • Averted in the diary. (See single-minded twins below.)
  • Cat Girls
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: In their single diary, Meowlody writes in black ink, while Purrsephone writes in blue ink.
    • Meowlody's white-haired. Purrsephone's the brunette.
  • Cool Scooter: The Wheelin' Werecats playset reveals they share one.
  • Girl Posse: To Toralei. They think of her as a sister.
  • Single-Minded Twins: Averted via the diary showing their differences: Purrsephone is slightly less likely to prank and has a desire to break away from her sister while Meowlody is much more chaotic and slightly more dominant.
  • Those Two Guys: Little to no dialogue between them.

     Nefera De Nile 
Voiced By: Wendee Lee
Cleo's malicious older sister who rejoices in asserting her authority over her younger sister and anyone else around. Along with Ramses De Nile in Boo York, Boo York, she seeks to establish a dynasty with the Ptolemys to gain fabulous wealth and power— at the cost of Cleo's happiness with Deuce.
  • Alpha Bitch: Even Toralei and Cleo cannot compare to Nefera's bitchiness.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Toralei and Ramses De Nile in Boo York, Boo York.
  • Big Sister Bully: Very clearly enjoys tormenting Cleo and, based on how Cleo reacts to her, always has.
  • The Cheerleader: Was this during her tenure at Monster High, the captain in fact, before passing on the reins to Cleo.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: First mentioned in Clawd's first and Cleo's second diaries before making an appearance in the webisodes.
  • Establishing Character Moment: After making a grand entrance, she taunts and then blackmails her sister into doing her bidding after finding out about the party thrown behind their father's back. This is all within about ten seconds.
  • Foil: To Cleo de Nile: she's an example of what her younger sister could have been if she hadn't gained a sense of compassion.
  • The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Again, with Cleo. Even pushed forward by her father.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In "Monster Mashionals Part 2" Nefera uses the family idols to get her team of fearleaders to win, but this prompts the catgirls to help Cleo as they learned their lesson from last time and wanted to win fairly this time around. Ghoulia shows Scary Murphy a video of Nefera cheating, and in turn Nefera is stripped of her previous awards, causing her to give an anguish-filled, glass-shattering scream in defeat.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout/Glass-Shattering Sound: When Ghoulia exposes her cheating to Scary Murphy, this is her reaction to Scary Murphy's judgment against her. And her scream in Boo York, Boo York makes the entire gala look at her.
  • Missing Mom
  • Purple Eyes
  • Rich Bitch: She puts Cleo's early nastiness to shame, and is shown in Boo York, Boo York to still not be satisfied with her massive wealth.
  • Villain Song: She shares one with her father in Boo York, Boo York.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Turquoise, black and gold streaked.

     Howleen Wolf 
Voiced By: America Young
Howleen is one of the many younger siblings in the wolf family and shares a room with Clawdeen. After being mentoned several times in diaries, she officially made her appearance in the second Monster High TV special Fright On. She was released as a doll in a 2-pack with Clawdeen in early 2012.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: To Clawdeen, as mentioned from the beginning. Highlighted in Fright On with her "borrowing" several of Clawdeen's things without permission.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Between her and her best friend Twyla. Howleen's the red, which is assisted by their color schemes when she dyes her hair hot pink.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Her development in 13 Wishes and Fright On largely involved her trying to find her place among the student body and distinguish herself from her two older siblings.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Mentioned in Clawdeen's first diary, and later in Clawd's and Abbey's.
  • Evil Makeover: In 13 Wishes. Slashed and edgier clothes, heavy black eye makeup, orange eyes and a darkened color scheme to complement the Shadow Ghouls.
  • Kaleidoscope Hair: Not on Clawdeen's level, but definitely.
  • Little Miss Snarker: Definitely has her moments.
  • Nice Hat: Her black knit cap in her 13 Wishes release.
  • Odd Name Out: Of the Wolf siblings seen—Clawd, Clawdia, and Clawdeen.
  • Passionate Sportsgirl: In the diaries, she beat Clawdeen in football.
  • Plucky Girl: Brash and hyperactive, but definitely resilient—she will not give up on something she wants.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Short, with big hair, a lopsided ear, Cute Little Fangs, and big ol' eyes. Aww.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: She describes her sense of fashion as "taking lots of different styles and mashing them together to make something totally new and creepy cool". Clawdeen says it looks like she got dressed in the dark.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Played with. Draculaura mentions her being all grown up, as she's starting Monster High. Also, as of 13 Wishes she gets a hair upgrade.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes

     Headless Headmistress Bloodgood 
Voiced By: Laura Bailey
The Headmistress of Monster High, who tries to balance doing what's best for the school, and encouraging her students to be themselves. She is often seen in the company of her horse Nightmare. Bloodgood and Nightmare had a doll release in late Spring, 2013.
  • A Dog Named Dog: As her figure's story reveals, turns out Nightmare's species are all called Nightmares.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Cool Horse: Nightmare, despite being scary-looking at first, falls into this.
  • Headless Horseman: The obvious inspiration.
  • Losing Your Head: Regularly removes her head and puts it back on.
  • Multicolored Hair: Black and violet.
  • Not So Stoic: Mainly firm and unshakable, she can sometimes crack up. In a more serious example the story with her figure goes a little into her character as a teenager and her ordeals with finding Nightmare, showing a less self-assured Bloodgood than the one we know.
  • Only One Name: No first name's been revealed for Headmistress Bloodgood.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite being strict when it comes to the rules of the school, she encourages her students to take chances and be themselves, sometimes even directly involving herself in their actions/antics.
  • Taken for Granite: In Fright On. Gets better, though.
  • Tuckerization: Her last name references Erin Bloodgood, who's been the marketing manager for numerous Mattel franchises, including Monster High.

     Iris Clops 
Voiced By: Paula Rhodes
Iris is a klutzy cyclops who's kind, poetic, and passionate about astronomy. She had a crush on Manny for a while, but was turned off seeing how bullheaded he usually was. After discovering his inner poet with the help of the Inner Monster app and getting to know him better, she realized his Hidden Depths and the two have been dating ever since. Her initial release was with him as a 2014 San Diego Comic Con exclusive two-pack.

     Scarah Screams 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald (Webisodes), Paula Rhodes (Haunted)
Daughter of the Banshee. Possesses the ability to read minds; and can also communicate telepathically over long distances (albeit not well), as demonstrated in "I Scream, You Scream".

     Rochelle Goyle 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
The daughter of Scarisian gargoyles, she's incredibly protective of her friends.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Cute Bruiser: A pastel style and a lilting french accent, and hard to beat on a roller derby maze track... for monsters.
  • Living Statue
  • Multicolored Hair: Pink hair with aqua blue streaks.
  • Older Than They Look: She's 415. Gargoyle aging!
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: In her diary, she develops a crush on Deuce after he accidentally runs into her and, after getting his sunglasses knocked off, explains that his stone gaze does not work on gargoyles and basilisks. She knows that Deuce and Cleo are an item, but this does not stop her from getting her pet, Roux, to steal Deuce's casketball in order to lure Deuce to her. Though nothing more than talking occurred between Deuce and herself, Rochelle does admit to feeling somewhat guilty afterwards. She's reunited with her actual boyfriend, Garrott Du Roque, in Scaris: City of Frights.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Pink.
  • Winged Humanoid
  • Gold Pin Of Power: In "The Halls Have Eyes", Rochelle is appointed with the position of Safety Monitor, and grapples with its' responsibilities when she feels like she's actively being a killjoy. It turns out her proactivity and dedication promoted her to leader of the school's Safety Team... which consists of Heath, Manny and Slo Mo.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Subverted. Briefly crushed on Deuce despite having a boyfriend (Garrott) still in Scaris— but he'd long since stopped writing her, so in her mind he'd left her.

     Venus McFlytrap 
Voiced By: Julie Maddalena
Daughter of the Plant Monster. By her own description, she's a nature-loving eco-punk — which makes sense, considering her scaritage. Dedicated to promoting recycling and going green.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She has bright green skin.
  • Brainwashing for the Greater Good: Can inflict a mild form of this on fellow monsters (see her Jedi Mind Trick section for more info)
  • Cute Little Fangs: Comes with being a carnivorous plant. Curiously absent in CG.
  • Elemental Hair: Green, plant powers.
  • Expy: Possibly of Poison Ivy.
  • Freaky Fashion, Mild Mind: Well, relatively so. Despite her punk-rock fashion sense, Venus is surprisingly mild-mannered and peaceful, though definitely passionate and loud when it comes to saving the planet.
  • Green Thumb: Has been shown to have an ability to magically grow and nurture plants on a few occassions. At other times she's seen caring for plants, Venus will be seen using ordinary gardening methods, at which she still seems to be excellent.
  • Granola Girl: She's obsessed with saving the environment. Howleen slightly fears her eco-spiels.
  • Jedi Mind Trick: She can use her "Power of Pollen Persuasion" to get others to do her bidding. However, she can only affect one monster at a time. (Unlike Poison Ivy, this works on all monsters, not just ones attracted to her.)
  • Multicolored Hair: Hot pink with lime green stripes (on the side that isn't shaved, that is).
  • Talking to Plants: She does this constantly, talking to trees even after they've been processed into paper.

     Robecca Steam

     Wydowna Spider 
Voiced By: Erin Fitzgerald
Daughter of the Arachne. Introduced playing a semi-villainous role in the Polterghoul's story.

     Amanita Nightshade 
Voiced By: Heather Moiseve
A plant monster born from the seed of the Corpse Flower, an extremely rare flower which only blooms every 1300 years, Amanita is very beautiful but also very selfish. She has a history with Cleo de Nile's family and Deuce's mother Medusa.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Tea green.
  • Birds of a Feather: With her past owner Nefera de Nile, as both are incredibly narcissistic and obsessed with their own beauty.
  • Green Thumb: In "Bad Tomb-mates" it's shown that she's able to manipulate vines. She uses this ability to escape the De Nile tomb.
  • It's All About Me: She seems honestly confused when people don't worship her and do everything she asks of them.
  • It's Personal: Cleo's grudge against her. She could have saved Cleo's family from the tomb but pretty much forgot about them entirely once she was out.
  • Narcissist: The thought of thinking about other's needs before hers seems like an utterly alien concept to her, to the point that it's almost a case of Blue and Orange Morality.
  • Meaningful Name: Amanita is also the name for the genus of some of the most toxic mushrooms in the world. Well fitting her toxic personality.
  • Never My Fault
  • Older Than They Look: Has probably existed for millenia, but looks like a teen girl.
  • Only Friend: To Nefera while she and Cleo and their father were trapped in the tomb. Also lists her BFF as "Amanita Nightshade", so she's apparently her own only friend.
  • Plant Person
  • Sticky Fingers: Stole Cleo's clothes when they were both in the tomb, various makeup items from the other ghouls at varying times, and the entirety of the contents of Draculaura(a fashion-loving 1600 year old vampire)'s closet, while in the same room as her and all of her friends.
  • Third-Person Person: Amanita Nightshade speaks/writes in third person all the time, even in Amanita's diary and profile.
    You want Amanita to run? Oh no no no! Monsters run to Amanita Nightshade or for Amanita Nightshade. Amanita does not run.
  • Valley Ghoul: Speaks with this accent.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Violet.

     Gooliope Jellington 
A giant goo girl adopted by circus folk. More comfortable there with the circus folk than in the outside world where she's odd even by monster standards, she nevertheless ends up at Monster High. Not inspired by any particular monster, but a spiritual descendent of creatures like The Blob.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Made of shimmery pink goo.
  • Circus Brat: Raised by the circus; in her diary she also talks about the trope of The Runaway who wants to join the circus, saying they wouldn't be so eager if they knew how much downtime and hard work goes into being part of the show.
  • Doorstop Baby: Of a sort.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: The reflections in her eyes are shaped like radioactive trefoils.
  • The Freakshow: Her circus family includes some that are considered "freaks" even by other monsters. She hates it when they're treated as such though.
  • Happily Adopted: By the ringmaster and all the circus folk. They treat her like family (and throw the occasional prank). although she does still wonder about where she came from.
  • Hey, Let's Put on a Show: Helps the ghouls put on Freak du Chic to raise enough money to save the school's arts programs.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Even by Monster High standards: she's 15 feet 2 inches. Officially, she's even joined the Monster High casketball team.
  • Mad Scientist: R.S., the person who created her and gave her up for adoption.
  • Miss Fanservice: The Monster High official Twitter seems to be trying to make her this, repeatedly selecting her as their "woman crush". Not that she isn't cute.
  • Multicolored Hair: Gold, with a pink undertone.
  • Punny Name: As usual for Monster High, but also applies to her original number names - 816 = BIG, and 8708 = BLOB.
  • Quirky Curls: Curly hair in her base release, and she's a contortionist circus ghoul with a trend towards the performative.
  • Slime Girl: Her basic physical nature.
  • Statuesque Stunner
  • You Are Number Six: Her original designation was Experiment 816, Batch 8708. The folks who adopted her gave her a more colorful name.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: In "Freak du Chic Act 3", it's shown that when she's mad, she involuntarily starts shaking hard enough to make the ground below her tremble.

     Deuce Gorgon 
Voiced By: Yuri Lowenthal (Season 1-2), Cam Clarke (Season 3), Evan Smith (Season 4-present)
Son of Medusa, and co-captain of the casketball team with Clawd Wolf. In a sometimes tumultuous but still strong relationship with Cleo De Nile, and they occupy the spot of the school's premier power couple.

     Holt Hyde/Jackson Jekyll 
Voiced By: Cindy Robinson
Two students, one body, each an alter-ego depending on who you ask. The 4th generation grandsons of Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde, and transplants to Monster High after it was revealed Jackson was no normie. At first, Jackson Jekyll existed during the daytime and Holt at night, though neither, or Holt at least, seemed to know about the other. Since, they've each become aware of their condition and weren't initially too enthused. Their condition has also changed: Holt's brought out by loud music with a beat. Jackson is a timid, shy yet cute nerd, and Holt is the loud and boisterous school resident DJ.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Both names.
  • Adorkable: As Jackson.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Holt has blue skin.
  • Distressed Dudes: In Ghouls Rule!, where Holt was framed for trashing the Muggles normie school, and was sentenced to the "Trick-or-Treatment". The school pulls together to save him.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Jackson is first mentioned in Deuce's diary and as his best friend in the official bio. He is mentioned again in Draculaura's and Clawdeen's.
  • Fantastic Racism: Jackson's first appearance in the webisodes shows us how "normies" are viewed by many monsters. Even Heath, his cousin, is a little embarrassed to admit they're related at first. Deuce quickly accepts Jackson, though, probably because they've already met
  • Fiery Redhead: As Holt, a literal hot-head.
  • Flaming Hair: As Holt.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Both dolls share eyebrow rings and a yin-yang back tattoo.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Jackson, especially to Holt, who complains about waking up in "nerdy" clothing.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal/Special: Holt experiences the former, due to his sometimes violent temper accompanied by uncontrollable flames, and Jackson feels the latter, due to being the only "normie" in an all-monster school.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: Well, duh. Whenever one side is "awake", the other has a blackout. Originally, in the diaries, Jackson was awake during the day, but became Holt at night. Later chronologically in the webisodes, Jackson turned into Holt if he heard loud music with a beat. This was finally addressed in Jackson's journal, explaining that "the volatile nature of [his] elemental side + [his] Hyde heritage + being a teenager = constant change."
  • Large Ham: Holt. "Yo FRAN-KEEEEEEEYEAAH!"
  • Multicolored Hair: Black and blonde as Jackson.
  • Ship Sinking: With Frankie in the webisodes. Yes, having two constantly altering personas makes dating very, very difficult. The second was subverted, though; Frankie took a break from them so they could focus on getting along and not constantly lashing out at each other, and now they're on good terms with one another. In the Monster High app, the possibility of them making up is teased with a cute pic of Jackson and Frankie on a picnic.
  • Ship Tease: Jackson with Draculaura at first, but it didn't last. Both of them with Frankie later on — twice over.
  • The Reveal: During "Here Comes Treble", when Jackson is exposed to loud music, he makes a mad dash out of sight from public view. Unfortunately, he doesn't make it in time and changes mid running up the school staircase where everyone sees him.
  • Token Human: Subverted.

     Clawd Wolf 
Voiced By: Yuri Lowenthal ("Fur Will Fly"), Ogie Banks (current)
Clawdeen's level headed older brother. He's the captain of the school's football and casketball squad but realistically knows he can't always be in sports, so he studies to go into sports medicine. His basic doll release was with Draculaura, and the two are strong contenders for Monster High's most stable relationship.

     Heath Burns 
Voiced By: Yuri Lowenthal (Volume 1), Cam Clarke (current)
Heath Burns is a fire elemental, and thus has the ability to use flame. He was at first an extra in the webisode "Substitute Creature" and was shortly introduced as Draculaura's short-lived crush. Heath is a show-off and gets on the girls' nerves by being self-centered and insensitive. He's friends with most of the boys. In "Fear Pressure", we learn he is Jackson's cousin.

     Sloman "Slo Mo" Mortavich 
Voiced By: Audu Paden
One of the zombies and Ghoulia's boyfriend. He hangs with the guys and is in the chess club, and is also one of the school's casketball co-captains.
  • Adorkable
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Ends up swapped with Deuce for the last bit of "Freaky Fridate" as Cleo-as-Ghoulia kisses him.
  • Frozen Face: Most of the time but when he smiles it's really cute.
  • Genius Bruiser: Unbeatable at chess even by Ghoulia, stellar in math, exemplary at spatial thinking, and he can break a guitar in half no sweat.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: A mild example. He does not react well to being cheered during his chess games or to Heath's guitar playing. Being poked in the eye seems to be an exception though (at least if it's Ghoulia).
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: Like Ghoulia.
    • Subverted by way of "Freaky Friday" Flip in "Freaky Fridate," where he is accidentally body swapped with Deuce at the end of the episode. Deuce, in Slo Mo's body, but with his own voice, utters the last word of the webisode: "Cleo!"
  • Lovable Jock
  • Oblivious to Love: Subverted in that they were already dating, but in the Love's Not Dead doll release diary he takes an awfully long time to realize Ghoulia's trying to get him to ask her to the dance... after she's taken him to clothes stores, asked him if he's ever worn a tuxedo, and generally dropped more hints than the little lost kids in the woods dropped breadcrumbs.
    Slo-Mo: Well, how was I supposed to know that Ghoulia wanted to go to the prom? She has never even talked about it. In fact, the only thing she has even wanted to talk about lately are the new dresses and shoes she has been looking at, which I find very odd since she rarely ever mentions things like this and... oh no. I am in serious trouble.
  • Official Couple: With Ghoulia. And he is easily willing to fight someone over her.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname
  • Our Zombies Are Different: He's on the Varsity Chess team, as well as the Varsity Basketball team.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

     Gillington "Gil" Webber 
Voiced By: Yuri Lowenthal ("Blue Lagoona"), Evan Smith (current)
Son of the River Monsters. Has a loving, but troubled, relationship with Lagoona, thanks to his parents' prejudice against saltwater sea monsters.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Blue
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Both his parents are equally opposed to the relationship. His parents even made him change schools for a time to try and break them up, but they eventually gave in and let him go back.
  • Fantastic Racism: In the family.
  • Fish People: Can't breathe on land, so he always wears a water filled helmet if not around water.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: You won't hear him called "Gillington" much. Averted only in Lagoona's 13 Wishes diary, after Howleen's wish turns her into a freshwater monster.
  • Lovable Coward: Generally a loyal friend and a nice kid, but this'll pop up quite a bit— a lot of the time in terms of seawater creatures. He's getting over that.

     Manny Taur 
Voiced By: Audu Paden
The son of the Minotaur, and ex-school bull-y.

     HooDude Voodoo 
Voiced By: Cam Clarke
A raggedy doll created by Frankie to be her boyfriend in the webisode "Hoo Doo You Like?". After Frankie decides that she doesn't need a guy to fit in, she tosses him away, only for him to reveal that he's alive and heartbroken at her "breaking up with him." He gets over it later, and now infrequently tags along with the ghouls on their adventures. He was released in a 2 pack with Scarah Screams as the SDCC 2012 dolls.
  • Cute Clumsy Guy
  • Demonic Dummy: Negative things that happen to him stretch to the other Monster High students.
  • Large Ham: He's rather... melodramatic about Frankie "dumping" him.
    • And just about any other emotion he may be feeling. He actually lists his oversensitivity and tendency to wear his heart on his sleeve as his Freaky Flaws in his later-released bio.
  • Mismatched Eyes: His button eyes are blue on one side and pink on the other. This is a Shared Unusual Trait with Frankie.
  • The Ingenue: Arguably a rare male example, being extremely naive and innocent about most things.
  • Nice Guy
  • The Not-Love Interest: He slowly gets over Frankie while forming a strong bond with Scarah Screams the banshee. Peers have asked them why they aren't dating, and he admits that, while he's really close to her, he just doesn't feel any romantic attraction to her.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair
  • Younger Than They Look: Like his creator.

Monster Exchange

     Lorna McNessie 
Voiced By: Marieve Herington
An exchange student from Rotland, she's a Loch Ness monster who loves photobombing.

     Marisol Coxi 
I'm all about big hair, big shoes, and BIG attitude!
A maricoxi from Monster Picchu who is an exchange student at Monster High and Abbey's second cousin. She's big, bold, and loud.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: The mass-produced doll is dark brown, but her prototype was bright pink.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: The maricoxi is a South American example of the bigfoot cryptid legend, and making her Abbey's cousin fits the dichotomy.
  • '80s Hair: Which she can lose guinea pigs in.
    Marisol: Hey! Where's Piggy Pantalones?
    -said pig pops out of pink mass of hair-
  • Genki Girl: Mari is energetic, athletic, and extremely vivacious. In "Meet You in Monster Picchu", Abbey follows her cousin about the length and breadth of Monster Picchu before she finally gets on the train to Monster High.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: She is South American (Peruvian), so it's justified.
  • Multicolored Hair: Pink, with two neon green braids.
  • Hairy Girl: Prominent leg and forearm hair, as is the form for bigfoots.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Since her doll uses the "Big Sister" mold, she's canonically even bigger than Abbey.

     Kjersti Trollson 
Ha! I win, again.
Hailing from Goreway, the videogame-loving daughter of trolls.
  • Adorkable: Totally.
  • All Trolls Are Different: She and her brothers have Norwegian accents and live in this world's version of Norway, as a nod to trolls' Scandinavian origins. However, her brothers are big, muscular and have grey skin while she's small, slight and has light pink skin.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Light pink skin.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Her tendency towards isolation, uncanny proficiency in mechanics, predisposition towards logic and overly complicated writing manner bring to mind something on the autism spectrum.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Ghoulia. Each respects the others' skill.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: She was able to decipher how to open an ancient box without damaging it at three. Looking at devices, things just click in her head. She's confused that people think her skill bizarre.
  • Gamer Chick: Her brothers may be better than her at various troll sports, but none of them can beat her in a video game. She comes to Monster High to challenge Ghoulia Yelps, the only other monster with a higher score than her in a videogame leaderboard. She even says the word noob in her diary.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Ja.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Her pupil, iris, and reflection marks are pixellated.
  • Multicolored Hair: Hot pink and klein blue.
  • My Greatest Failure: Losing a videogame battle to Ghoulia Yelps due to a split-second finger slip. She'd repeatedly reviewed the footage and stressed over it for the longest time— and when Ghoulia beat her in a Dead Fast game, it was the last straw for her to come to Monster High to regain her title.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Coming to Monster High for a rematch with Ghoulia Yelps. The initial conflict has Kjersti and Ghoulia each using their handheld consoles so frenetically they both explode and give the ghouls a major case of Ash Face. They realize they're well matched, laugh it off, and become gaming pals.
  • Nice Hat: A knitted blue cap with horns, made to emulate a battle helmet.
  • Odd Name Out: Of her three older brothers: Stomp, Grunt, and Clobber.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: She's the youngest of four siblings, and the only girl.
  • Pointy Ears
  • Quirky Curls: A Gorewegian gaming kid prodigy, with very curly hair.
  • Trollhammer530 Is A Ghoul: Her screenname is gender-neutral and she (understandably) doesn't like or use voice chat, so after months of speaking to her online Heath thought she was a manster. That's also why he didn't tell her the person who'd beaten her in a climactic game was Ghoulia— he thought Kjersti would have been ashamed.
  • The Spock: Thinks everything through absolutely thoroughly.
  • Spock Speak: Her diary is full of this.
  • Stealth Pun: She's a gaming troll.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

     Batsy Claro 
Not in MY jungle!
Hailing from Costa Shrieka, Batsy is the daughter of the Costa Rican white vampire bat. She lives in the forest with her family and gives tours to groups of monsters who visit it, but doesn't think highly of them as they often disrespect the environment.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: A pearlescent white.
  • Animal Motifs: Angular white bat shaped decorations adorn her clothing.
  • Brown Eyes
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Facial Markings: Green and white, with a subtle mask of pink eye makeup across her eyes.
  • Long Distance Relationship: In her diary, we see that entering in the Monster Exchange program forces her to enter into one with an unnamed boyfriend... that she was actually trying to break up with when she talked to him.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Her echolocation allows her to project her voice, and we see her destroy a harvester in "From Fear To There Part 1".
  • Multicolored Hair: White with green streaks.
  • Mythology Gag: States her favorite food as "blood... oranges".
  • Nature Hero: If you're around her and mess with the environment, you do so at your own peril. After she's selected for the exchange program, she turns against Monster High after seeing an endangered Ghost Orchid being taken there— and decides to go only to put the plant back where it belongs. When she arrives she finds the plant in the MH greenhouse with Venus McFlytrap and prepares to forcibly retrieve it. When Venus reveals she's actually creating a new type of plant food to help the Orchid's pollination, however, Batsy has a change of heart.
    Batsy: That Ghost Orchid is staying here at Monster High— and, so am I!
  • Not Good With Other Monsters: A mild example of Type 2. She feels a lot more attuned to the forest than with others, but respects those who respect the environment. This leads to her friendship with Venus.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Most likely based on the hupia, a Costa Rican vampire said to kidnap children.
  • Pointy Ears: Which are hypersensitive.
  • Winged Humanoid: Large white engraved ones.

     Isi Dawndancer 
I belong here because everyone accepts me, and the way I express myself.
The Native Scaremerican daughter of a deer spirit. She's flirtatious, and loves dancing so much that sometimes all it takes is music to get her going.

Boo-vie Stars (special-introduced)

Escape From Skull Shores

     Andy Beast 
Voiced By: George Newbern
A monster boy who lived alone in Skull Shores for a long time, as he was sent away by his parents due to a Hulk-like condition that makes him grow in size and ferocity when he's angered. He also has a strange sense of familiarity with Frankie— despite never having seen her before— apparently building statues of her all around the island. This is actually because Frankie's the Identical Stranger to a human scientist whom he had a great friendship with years prior, but that doesn't stop him and Frankie from becoming good friends (it actually helps). She convinces him to return to civilization, and stay at Monster High.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Purple.
  • Beauty and the Beast: With the scientist girl and Frankie.
  • Genius Bruiser: A big dude who can rip an intercom out of a wall, but very eloquent and able to build a very complicated home out of a wrecked boat and rudimentary jungle stuff. Also able to build near lifelike statues.
  • The Hermit: He was tired of constant fear and apprehension at his condition, so he willingly decided to begin living on Skull Shores. The Tikis are too scared of him to confront him, so he was happily living by himself until the scientist (and later, the ghouls) find him. He's isolated himself from contact with others for so long that he's shrouded in legend. It's legitimately surprising for Frankie and the viewers when we find out the Beast of Skull Shores is usually... a kid.
  • Horned Humanoid: In both forms, bigger when he becomes the Beast.
  • Nature Hero: Shipwrecked on Skull Shores as a child, he's attuned to the place.
  • Older Than They Look: The ghouls find him in the 21st century, and he looks like a (horned, musclebound and purple) teenage boy, but he was probably born in the 17-1800s.
  • Pointy Ears: They're also expressive.
  • Toyless Toyline Character: Fandom posterboy for this trope.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Although he's supposedly going to Monster High now, he pretty much hasn't been seen since Escape From Skull Shores.
  • Ship Tease: With Frankie in Skull Shores.
  • Shout-Out: A giant monster from the jungle who forms an attachment to our beautiful heroine and can only be calmed down by her when provoked to horrifying rage? King Kong much? Also, his first name is one to Andy Serkis, who did suit work for everyone's favorite ginormous gorilla.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: When he experiences hate, anger, or fear, he becomes so terrifying that he "becomes the Beast". He loses almost all coherence in the special when driven to this, and the only thing that brings him back to normal is Frankie.

     Bartleby Farnum 
Voiced By: Keith Silverstein
A human conman who initially plans to exhibit the ghouls in a freakshow when he finds them adrift, but when he sees Frankie's uncanny resemblance to a human scientist he decides to use her as bait for the Beast of Skull Shores (that's Andy).
  • Bad Boss: To Kipling, a young monster he keeps as his assistant. Farnum berates him on his "horrible" appearance (that is, he looks perfectly fine except for his big ears) and forces him to wear a Brown Bag Mask. The ghouls teach Kipling not to take that treatment any more, and at the end he finally gets back at Farnum.
  • Big Bad: Of Escape From Skull Shores.
  • Fantastic Racism: Considers himself intellectually superior to all monsters.
  • Faux Affably Evil: As a showman, he uses a facade of congeniality to get what he wants— but if his plans are failing or he's getting challenged he quickly becomes aggressive.
  • Gold Tooth: Two of these.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: A pretty Dastardly Whiplash-esque mustache— sans the beard.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Throughout the movie he prides himself on his humanity but at the end when he makes ready to give Andy to a freakshow, his beleaguered monster assistant Kipling flings him over a ledge into tar after he's fallen through a passing fleet of birds— effectively tarring and feathering him. He's then carted off by the employees of the freakshow, who mistake him for a freak.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Swindler by trade.
  • Sword Cane: No sword in his cane, but a lot of tricky tools— and every single one can neutralize a monster attack.

     Van Hellscream 
Voiced By: Cam Clarke
An ex monster-hunter touting himself as a monster-humans relations expert, he comes to MH claiming to help the school with its' monster-gration. However, he's actually planning to turn the werewolves and vampires against each other, ensuring that monsters will face an even larger divide.
  • A Taste of Their Own Medicine: Gets turned to stone, just like he did to Bloodgood with gorgon powder.
  • Big Bad: Of Fright On.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Ms. Crabgrass. She's probably the only monster he trusts closely, and aids him in his schemes against other monsters.
  • Blondes Are Evil
  • Egomaniac Hunter: What he actually is, and most likely where he got all his potions.
  • Evil Wears Black
  • Fantastic Racism: Towards monsters, and believes keeping them seperated will keep normies safe.
  • Faux Affably Evil: A baddie without a doubt, but generally genial right up until the monsters go up against him at the gym.

  • Green Eyes
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In the last scene of Fright On: he and Crabgrass open the door to the gym for the Skullastic Superintendents to look in, see the monster students fighting, and shut the school down... but they're all happily partying. When he and Crabgrass try to make a break for it, they get Taken for Granite courtesy of Deuce. Bloodgood's suggestion for the new statues? The catacombs.
  • Manipulative Bastard: When Bloodgood was gone, he's able to turn the vampires and werewolves against each other in one day by playing to historical wounds and personal insecurities (like Howleen's desire to be important). Since he was willing to attack them all with potentially deadly powders, it's safe to say he didn't actually care about any of them.
  • Pick on Someone Your Own Size: His scheme to start a monster interspecies war starts at a high school.
  • Punny Name: On Van Helsing, the monster hunter from Dracula.
  • Villainous Cheekbones
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He is convinced that the only reason the humans are still a thriving species is that the monsters have been too busy fighting one another to bother attacking humans. Thus feels his actions are protecting humanity.

Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?

     Kieran Valentine 
Voiced By: Jonathan Lipow
The antagonist of Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love, he was Draculaura's boyfriend (for a week) before her family had to flee their old home about 500 years prior to her attending Monster High. An emotional vampire, he's Exactly What It Says on the Tin (a vampire who subsists off of emotions, not blood). To this end, he'd use his charms and looks to steal love from many ghouls, until he lost his powers attempting to steal Draculaura's heart after his first attempt centuries before was cut short. He regains them later from working in an animal shelter (that's heavily implied to be magical) and learns that stolen emotion cannot sustain any emotional vampire.He was released as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive doll alongside Djinni Grant in summer 2015.
  • The Atoner: In the second graphic novel "I Only Have Eye For You", he tries to make up for his past actions by "helping" the couples get together before the dance. His actions usually backfired though, and nobody even knew it was him until the last chapter. In the end, they all realize that he really was trying to help and that his actions did help the couples get closer - even if it wasn't they way he intended. They accept him but ask that he acts more openly next time.
    • In his SDCC diary, he becomes the finder of Djinni, and attempts to use his first wish to "fix the things he had broken", but [[Exact Words ends up in a janitor's outfit at Monster High after Draculaura's Sweet 1600, before being recognized by a minotaur and risking being thrown back into The Bog Of Eternal Stench. He uses his second wish to go back home.
  • Big Bad: Of 'Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love?'
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Had one with Toralei Stripe in Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love? He wanted Draculaura's heart, she wants Draculaura's unhappiness.
  • The Casanova: Has broken dozens of girl's hearts.
  • Charm Person: Has ability to hypnotize girls to fall in love with him, which he does to Draculaura to get her away from Clawd. It's part of the deal as an emotional vampire.
  • Cool Shades: Which he uses to tell when a girl's heart is ready to be "harvested". The first pair he had crosses over with Lennon Specs.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: If not friendship, at least acceptance.
  • Heel-Face Turn
  • Hypnotic Eyes
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Sort of - he never really loved Draculaura, but since he hurt her the most with his past actions he puts the most effort into "helping" her and Clawd in the graphic novel.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Falling into the Bog, along with Toralei.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Momma's Boy: He cries for his mom at the end of Why Do Ghouls Fall In Love when his plans fail.
  • Our Vampires Consume Emotions
  • Wax On, Wax Off: A goblin lady sets him to working in an unwanted monster animal shelter, after being fraught with stench for a very long time leaves him with not much company and not much to do. Duties include caring for the animals (which include flying monkeys and cleaning their cages, and anticipating what they tend to throw. It turns out his dedication to his work pays off and earns the love of the animals which allows his powers to return, getting rid of the stench. His experience also leaves him with a pathological fear of the aforementioned airborne primates.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Always wears a nice suit.
  • Southern Gentleman: Puts on a fake accent to make himself sound like this when he's trying to charm people. His real voice is closer to a general American accent.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Stark white (#ffffff) with black fading over her forearms, hands, legs and feet; that is in turn covered with a pink hexagonal pattern.

  • Happily Adopted: Reveals this in an interview with the official Monster High Tumblr. Her true monster heritage is unknown to everyone, herself included.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes
  • Overly Long Name: Alludes to this being the reason that she goes by C.A.: "I use my initials because my name is scary long, hideously unpronouncable and you know you're just going to call me 'Cupid' anyway."

Voiced By: Jonquil Goode
The daughter of a genie who initially appears in the 13 Wishes special, in the end she leaves the lamp to Djinni and loses her powers. That's not a bad thing, as she's finally able to reap the benefits of longtime friends.

    Djinni "Whisp" Grant 
Voiced By: Jonquil Goode
Gigi's Living Shadow, created by Giles Grimm. Was officially released as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive doll alongside Kieran Valentine in summer 2015.
  • Big Bad: Of 13 Wishes.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Howleen figures out what drove her to megalomania and uses her last wish to let Djinni trade places with Gigi as the new Genie of the Lamp, thus freeing Gigi and giving Djinni the position she always wanted. However, this still counts as a punishment— Gigi now gets to chill out with monsters at her own leisure and on her own terms, while when Djinni's not with a Finder she has a lot of pretty lonely downtime. Valentine's pretty much her only constant friend and he can't really hang out with her, since her time as his genie is up.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: With Gigi, the Monster High ghouls, and Kieran Valentine.
  • Driven by Envy: She really suffered from jealousy over Gigi's role as the Genie, and that helped her stir the same feelings in Howleen.
  • Facial Markings: Over and under her right eye, signifying the phases of a lunar eclipse.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Probably brought about by her realizing all her years of scheming came to nothing, and that being able to travel around the world is better than slavishly trying to control it.
  • Living Shadow: In 13 Wishes, she became visibly more "real" as the Finder — in this case, Howleen — makes the wishes she suggests and grants her more control.
  • Multicolored Hair: Varying shades of blue.
  • Not So Different: With Howleen: both feel overshadowed by their older sister figures.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: This trope applied while she was villainous.
  • Sealed Evil In A Lamp: She shares it with Gigi.
  • We Can Rule Together: She offered Howleen unlimited power at her side even after it becomes clear that that's not really what she wants anymore. The offer was most likely a desperate farce.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

She is also a proficient designer with practical roots who likes to infuse her culture and unique spirit into her work, which is a reason she came to Scaris to study under Madame Ghostier.

    Moanatella Ghostier 
Voiced By: Cindy Robinson
A famous fashion designer, the Big Bad of Scaris: City of Frights, and the monster responsible for Garrott's disappearance. She has designed for so long that she ran out of ideas on her own, which is bad news for her: if she's not having attention paid to her, she literally fades away. To stave that off, she decided to start using up-and-coming designers to sustain her house... by locking them up and forcing them to design for her until they run out of ideas, too. This racket gets found out by the ghouls, and she's upstaged so well by the designers she tried to kidnap that she disappears for good.
  • Bad Boss: Quick to make jabs at her prospective apprentices, and has no qualms with leaving her actual apprentices for dead if the skeleton next to Garrott's cell was any indication.
  • Big Bad: Of Scaris: City of Frights.
  • Fog Feet: No feet seen on her.
  • Gratuitous French: In many of her lines. She is French, so this is justified.

  • Large Ham: Her personality cannot be contained to clothing and body language alone.
    Moanatella: You thought? Impossible, infantile, primitive !
  • Little Black Dress: A floor-length halter-top one.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Fools designers into believing she wants them to be her apprentice. When she chooses one she locks them away and forces them to design for her until they run out of ideas, after which she holds auditions for their successor.
  • Opera Gloves: Wears this with a boa and dress.
  • Our Spirits Are Different: Can float, move through objects, and has a strange condition that will make her disappear if she isn't having enough attention paid to her. Which the monster gang takes advantage of.
  • Punny Name: On the names of two fashion designers: Donatella Versace and Jean Paul Gaultier.
  • Right-Hand Cat: A black one was always seen with her, and is left behind when she disappears.

A lovely gorgon and Deuce's cousin, she's an up and coming celebrity makeup artist from Barcelgroana working for Elissabat.

Voiced By: Karen Strassman
Originally a vampiress lined up to be queen, she fled the court after realizing machinations against her. 400 years later she's found in hiding as Veronica Von Vamp, a famous Hauntlywood actress. She takes her rule back after being found out and promises to change the vampire world for the better... not giving up her acting, of course.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: It happens in Frights, Camera Action when she regains her position as queen, and it's double awesome for Draculaura finally getting her full vampire powers at the same time.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Pale purple.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Kicks Uncle Stoker off the Hauntlywood lot for his schemes against the crown.
    Elissabat: Lord Stoker, for your crimes against the vampire crown, you are banished from ever holding official office. Boys, show him the street.
  • Childhood Friends: With Draculaura. They even sometimes got mistaken for sisters.
  • Defector from Decadence: Initially flew the coop after realizing what the crown would've been under Stoker's indirect control—a tyrannical regime of vampire supremacist subjugation which flew in the face of what her and Dracula had been trying to prevent.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: All outfits sport flairs of lolita style, like bows, ribbons, and lace. She also carries herself with great elegance.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: Part of her disguise, as she used to look quite similar to a stereotypical Hollywood Nerd complete with braces.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Purple hair, outfits, and (arguably) skin.
  • King Incognito: Her major plot point in "Frights, Camera, Action".
    • A smaller example in "Master of Hiss-guise", she comes to Monster High as a "normal everyday student" to do research for a new film. Thanks to Clawd she gets found out, and he's made to dress up as her to divert attention.
  • Modest Royalty: She may be the vampire queen, but she isn't above hawking lollipops at the MH Ghoul Fair.
  • Multicolored Hair: Usually violet and black, but gets a blood red streak in her Ghoul Fair release.
  • Nerd Glasses: She wore a chunky black pair of these with tape on the bridge and braces— 500 years ago.

  • Technicolor Eyes: Pink on her doll.
  • Took a Level in Badass: The reason she originally fled was that she felt too weak to go against Stoker, but when the ghouls find her again there's no such luck for him.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Shown to take her rule quite seriously, and knows fully of her obligation to her people.

     Lord Stoker

Elissabat's uncle and high member of the vampire court who failed to instill her as a puppet queen when she hoofed it and took the Vampire Heart with her. 400 years later he hasn't found her, and with the vampire court getting antsy, he decides to find a fake queen instead with a fake Vampire Heart— Draculaura. When she returns to the castle with him (her ghoulfriends in tow), he reveals his plans to instill her as a puppet ruler and return vampires to what he perceives as their former glory. When Draculaura relates his plan to the ghouls, they find the real vampire heart and thus the real queen— who promptly has him arrested.

     Vandala Doubloons 
Voiced By: Haviland Stillwell
Daughter of pirate ghosts. She's loud, forward, and may come off a little scary in her pirating endeavours, but she's a friendly teenage ghoul.

     Kiyomi Haunterly 
Voiced By: Joy Lerner
A noppera-bō introduced in Haunted who attends Haunted High. Possesses a power that lets her see into the "solids" world and spy on the Monster High students. She mainly spied on Draculaura, who inspired her to become less shy and more fashionable. The reason she kept this power secret was that due to rumors stirred up by Revenant, her fellow ghosts had a large distrust of solids, and if they found out she was interacting even indirectly with them they might've turned on her. At the end of the movie the ghouls do find out, including Draculaura, but they don't hold it against her and Lala even gives her a hug.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Usually blue, but see Color Coded Emotions.
  • The Blank: The face she has is most likely a projection, and she can vanish it at will.
    Kiyomi: Staring? I wasn't staring! I don't even have a face!
  • Color Coded Emotions: Changes colors based on how she's feeling. For example: the minute she recognized Draculaura, whom she had been haunting, she turned green with either embarrassment, fear, or both.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Her bio is peppered with this. Justified, as she is Japanese.
  • Multicolored Hair: Mostly magenta, with light pink split bangs.
  • Sailor Fuku: The neckline of her dress is inspired by this, a nod to her Japanese heritage.
  • Shrinking Violet: She used to be this, but has become more outgoing lately. In her diary it's revealed that she's gained confidence, as well as a new fashion sense, from spying on Draculaura and friends and imitating them.
  • Thinking Up Portals
  • Tuckerization: Named after Kiyomi Haverly, a Mattel employee.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Kiyomi started haunting Draculaura out of admiration and a desire to emulate her. Unfortunately, her actions alert the ghouls to a disturbance in the Ghost World, kicking off the plot of Haunted.
  • Youkai: Noppera-bō are a type of faceless ghost from Japan, that sometimes imitate other people's faces to play tricks. Which makes sense when you consider she's been copying Draculaura lately, including her fashion sense and outgoing personality.

     Principal Revenant AKA The Red Lady 
Voiced By: Karen Strassman
The Principal of Haunted High. As the Red Lady she went after various monsters and conducted fierce hauntings, but in doing so amassed a large amount of "detention chains"— the indestructible but transferrable chains given to baddie ghosts —and was subsequently trapped in her own home in the Ghost World. Seeing how large her home was, she transformed it into a school and formed a plan to transfer all her chains to the students under the guise of punishment. There still weren't enough students to reasonably chain up, so she had the Hall Moanitors begin kidnapping ghosts from other schools (beginning with Spectra). This brings some of the MH kids to the school to investigate and rescue Spectra, and along with some of her old friends they find out Revenant's old identity and plan. After a "The Reason You Suck" Speech (courtesy of Spectra) she realizes that she'll never be able to push all her chains on others, and regretfully asks the students to accept her as principal knowing what she's done so she'll be able to truly earn her freedom. They forgive her, and the boundaries between the Ghost World and solid world are lifted.
