Fiery Redhead: Western Animation

  • Niko from Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers.
    • Daisy O'Mega in the same series.
  • Taken literally with Flame Princess in Adventure Time.
  • Katella from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
  • Britanny Miller from the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise (it's not sure if she's redhead, but DAMN, she's fiery).
  • Gwen Tennyson from Ben 10 fits this trope, but in the Time Skipped sequel Ben 10: Alien Force, she seems to have outgrown it.
    • Unless you hurt her loved ones. That's when things start blowing up.
    • Ben's Rath form is a Fiery Redhead over most of his body, being an anthro tiger. He's also Unstoppable Rage personified.
  • Nonny from Bubble Guppies is an inversion. He's actually quite the stoic.
  • Ace McCloud from Centurions.
  • Atlanta from Class of the Titans. Theresa, to a lesser extent.
  • Numbuh 86 in Codename: Kids Next Door, bordering on Evil Redhead.
  • Averted by Jasmine "Jazz" Fenton of Danny Phantom. She wasn't a spitfire. She was a stuck-up (but caring) know-it-all. But her mother, Maddie, on the other hand...note 
  • Quinn Morgendorffer in Daria, when she gets really worked up. Daria Morgendorffer herself is auburn-haired (red-brown), and when annoyed...bad things happen in her presence. Prime example: in the Season 1 finale, a former student (and perennial Jerk Jock, as well as a Jerkass) disses Daria and her best friend - and moments later, is killed when a goalpost falls on him. Even the passive Fiery Redhead girls can cause damage.
  • Darkwing Duck's adopted daughter Gosalyn. She is fierce and spirited and has red hair.
  • Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory. His 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.
  • Beebe and Roger (and, at times, Judy) in Doug.
  • Averted by Sheila the Thief, of the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon, for she is not as much a boisterous fighter as her blonde little brother, Bobby...or her Black Best Friend, Dianah.
  • Sarah from Ed, Edd n Eddy.
    • Also Lee Kanker, who may very well qualify as Evil Redhead.
  • Vicky from The Fairly Oddparents.
  • Lois Griffin from Family Guy.
  • Kyle from Fanboy and Chum Chum.
  • Frankie from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends as Mr. Herriman and Bloo learn when they push her too far.
  • Fox from Gargoyles. More determined than hot-tempered, however.
    • Demona. As hot-tempered as her hair colour implies.
  • Peg and Pistol on Goof Troop form a mother-daughter pair of this. Peg is quite frightening when angry and is very assertive about her sensible opinions (unlike her Shrinking Violet/Extreme Doormat son) to the point she's actually able to control her otherwise bossy and dominating husband. Pistol is a Genki Girl and a Bratty Half-Pint.
  • In Gravity Falls, this is played straight with Manly Dan, but averted with his daughter, Wendy.
  • Laney Penn from Grojband, bonus points for catching fire every so often.
  • Ernie Potts from Hey Arnold! is a demolition man Napoleon with a Hair-Trigger Temper. Though he is mostly bald, the hair he has left is red.
  • Pepper Potts from Iron Man: Armored Adventures is a big time Fiery Redhead and Genki Girl.
  • Jane from Jane and the Dragon.
  • Saffi on Jimmy Two-Shoes is this because she's Crazy Awesome.
  • Jessie Bannon from Jonny Quest: The Real Adventures.
  • Shayera Hol/Hawkgirl from Justice League.
  • Kim Possible. She has incredible drive and passion. Ironically, Animology calls these traits blue fox.
  • The V.E.N.O.M warrior, Vanessa Warfield, from M.A.S.K....although you may notice the dark streak on her hair.
  • Kiva from Megas XLR.
  • 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".
  • Abraham Kane from Motorcity, also an Evil Redhead.
  • 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.
  • Teddy in My Little Pony Tales.
  • Pepper Ann Pearson from the ABC cartoon Pepper Ann. 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.
  • Candance Flynn from Phineas and Ferb. A Genki Girl with long red hair.
  • Subverted with Gretchen Grundler from Recess, 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.
  • The Scotsman from Samurai Jack 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.
  • Talon from Skeleton Warriors.
  • 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.
    • Also, 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!"
  • Firestar from Spiderman And His Amazing Friends.
  • Death Watch member (and Duchess Satine's sister) Bo-Katan Kryze from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. 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.
  • Sizzle, from Stunt Dawgs, especially since she uses explosives!
  • Volcana from Superman: The Animated Series.
  • He may be a minor character, but Johnny Sunspot is without a doubt the resident fiery redhead of Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!.
  • Kimmy the cheerleader Lovable Alpha Bitch from Sym-Bionic Titan.
  • If a headband counts as hair, Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles certainly qualifies. Subverted in the comics, though, as all the turtles have red headbands.
  • Starfire from Teen Titans. She doesn't have the fiery temper (unless you hurt her friends), but she's very passionate and energetic. She even flies using "righteous fury!"
  • The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin has the young Hot-Blooded Prince Arin, whom the others often have to restrain from going off half-cocked charging into everything. (Though his red hair is usually hidden underneath a helmet.)
  • Tyrone from The Backyardigans is usually a pretty mellow Deadpan Snarker, but he's been shown to have quite a temper in some episodes, like "Best Clowns in Town" and "Sinbad Sails Alone".
  • Blitzy Zulander from The Bots Master is easily the more hot-headed of the Zulander siblings, preferring full-on assaults against the Corp. She's also the main pilot of the combining Humongous Mecha Jungle Fiver.
  • Played with for Amberley in The Dreamstone. She's usually rather level headed and soft spoken; however, her temper flares immensely at times. The Urpneys know this first hand.
  • Every woman in the Slaghoople bloodline in The Flintstones — Wilma's mother, Wilma, and Pebbles.
  • Mallory McMallard from The Mighty Ducks.
  • Averted in The Powerpuff Girls 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.
  • 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.
  • Doyle from The Secret Saturdays.
  • Groundskeeper Willie from The Simpsons.
  • Sassette from The Smurfs 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.
  • Otto Osworth from Time Squad. While he's 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.
  • Same goes with Izzy on the Total Drama series. In Revenge of the Island, the normally level-headed Zoey can get this way when provoked.
  • Subverted in Totally Spies!, where 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.
  • Cliffjumper of Transformers 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.
  • Bloom from Winx Club, to some extent.
  • Yosemite Sam. Quite obviously.
  • Speedy, aka Red Arrow, in Young Justice. He 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.
