Fiery Redhead / Western Animation

  • Taken literally with the hot-tempered and red-headed Flame Princess in Adventure Time who often swings between adorable & cute and angry & violent.
  • Inverted by Philly Phil from Classof 3000, who is a redhead and a mellow if eccentric fellow.
  • Danny Phantom: Averted by Jasmine "Jazz" Fenton. She wasn't a spitfire. She was a stuck-up (but caring) know-it-all. But her mother, Maddie, on the other hand...note 
  • Daria: Quinn Morgendorffer, when she gets really worked up. Usually suverted though, since she acts more like a Dumb Blonde, despite having orange red hair.
  • Darkwing Duck:
    • Darkwing's adopted daughter Gosalyn. She is fierce and spirited and has red hair.
    • Averted by the show's other notable red-haired character, Launchpad, who is a Gentle Giant.
  • Dexter's Laboratory: Dexter's family is split evenly between this and the Dumb Blonde stereotype; he and his mother are fiery redheads and his sister and dad are happy-go-lucky yellow-haired ditzes.
  • Kim Possible: Kim has incredible drive and passion. Ironically, Animology calls these traits blue fox.
  • Mike, Lu & Og averted by Mike. While being a sports loving red haired girl, she is acutally calm and rather laid-back, compared to some shorter-tempered brunette princess named Lu. Though there are a few times when she's pushed over the edge like in "Sultans of Swat" and "To Serve Lu".
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
    • Rainbow Dash is a tomboy with tons of attitude, and though her mane has enough colours to fit her name, her bangs are warmer colors (red, orange, and yellow) and are more prominent, while the cooler colors (green, blue, and purple) are mostly hidden behind her neck.
    • Sunset Shimmer is ambitious, testy, sarcastic, hot-tempered, and red-haired — although admittedly her hair's about an even mix of red and yellow.
  • Pepper Ann: Pepper Ann Pearson, though she's more spacy and neurotic than fiery. In the uniform episode she admits that it's auburn, which other characters agree to once she tries to take credit for being the trope.
  • Phineas and Ferb: Candance. However her long hair is more orange than red and is a overactive girl.
  • Recess:
    • Subverted with Gretchen, as she's pretty easygoing, unless you make her really mad. She and raven-haired Spinelli actually swap their normal hair tropes: Gretchen's the brainy one (who was going to have black hair originally), while Spinelli's the fiery one. Played straight with Ashley Q.
    • As flashbacks show us, Miss Finster was a redhead, and still fiery.
  • Rocket Power: Mackenzie Benders is an ankle biter with a bitter attitude.
  • Rocko's Modern Life: Bev Bighead can become this at times, mostly when she's irritated with Ed.
  • Samurai Jack: The Scotsman is a loud, brutish warrior (and about the closest thing Jack has to a friend). Then there's his wife, who's even louder and more bad tempered than he is.
  • South Park:
    • Kyle is this, often instigated as a result of Cartman's antisemitism, racism, or greed. This can lead to his own Jerkass tendencies, approaching Knight Templar at times. His mother, too, is a full blown fiery Jewish Knight Templar redhead.
    • Darryl Weathers, leader of an angry band of hicks bent on driving away the job-stealing "Goobacks" who immigrated from the future.
    "THEY TOOK OUR JOBS!"
  • Spiderman And His Amazing Friends: Taken almost as literally as one possibly can with Firestar (she has brown hair in her human form).
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Death Watch member (and Duchess Satine's sister) Bo-Katan Kryze. Even though she is usually calm, she somewhat fits as a Fiery Redhead due to being a rather aggressive character. Also is an Evil Redhead.
  • Stunt Dawgs: Sizzle, especially since she uses explosives!
  • The Powerpuff Girls:
    • Averted by calm, rational, redheaded Blossom. The 'fiery' one though is the brunette-haired Buttercup. Although she insists that she IS a fiery redhead in one of the interview promos for The Movie.
    • Played straight with Princess Morbucks, who throws a tantrum when she doesn't get what she wants.
  • Headstrong, passionate, and excitable Ray Stantz becomes one in The Real Ghostbusters and its 90s successor Extreme Ghostbusters thanks to an Adaptation Dye-Job (his hair is brown [Dan Aykroyd's natural hair color] in the movies). Ditto the Ghostbusters' Sassy Secretary Janine Melnitz, though to a lesser extent as her hair was already a reddish-brown color in the first movie.
  • The Smurfs: Sassette was this before Papa Smurf changed her into a real Smurf. That's where she gets her name. Averted in the comic books, where she is more chatty than bratty when she was first created.
  • Time Squad: Otto is generally outgoing and friendly towards everyone around him, he doesn't appreciate it when adults are mean to him or do something incredibly stupid. Sometimes, the attitude towards these types of people are just plain spiteful. He will often argue and lose his temper all together a few times. Sometimes, he will work out a plan that has the sole purpose of simply humiliating someone, let alone get a mission completed.
  • Totally Spies!:
    • Subverted since the redhead Sam is a Badass Bookworm and the brains of the group.
    • However, Gabriella seems to be more spitfire than her daughter mentioned above.
  • Transformers:
    • Cliffjumper is a hotheaded little red Autobot who is extremely paranoid and eager to blindly charge into a fight.
    • Ironhide is a crusty old veteran, but is also eager to wade into a good fight. Has a red 'helmet' and main body.
    • Hot Rod is brash, impetuous, and outspoken as a young Autobot, and retains a primarily red/magenta color. Averted later as he becomes solidly brick red as Rodimus Prime, but also becomes more morose, brooding, and jaded.
    • Warpath is a shouty Boisterous Bruiser with no subtlety and a love of combat, and turns into a maroon tank.
  • Young Justice: Speedy, aka Red Arrow, was ticked off at constantly being Green Arrow's sidekick and set off on his own. Despite this, he genuinely cares about his friends and looks after them. In secret.
  • Steven Universe: Ruby is very much this, having a red tint in her hair along with being red overall. She is very Hot-Blooded, to the point of her evaporating an entire pool because of her anger.
  • Rainbow Brite: Red Butler has orange hair and a red color motif. He is a headstrong boy.
