->''Okay, fine\\
Fer sure, fer sure\\
She's a valley girl\\
And there is no cure''
-->-- '''Music/FrankZappa''', ''Valley Girl'' - ''Music/ShipArrivingTooLateToSaveADrowningWitch''.

Oh my God! I'm, like, so totally glad to see you!

Except you. [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn Put some pants on]], already! Gross!

[[VerbalTic Like]], anyway, I'm what some of you, {{like|IsLikeAComma}}, call a "[[StockParody Stalk Parody]] Character", and yes, there are some totally creepy guys who--

Oh, "''Stock'' Parody Character"! I am SOOOOOO completely embarrassed! I gotta watch out for [[{{Malaproper}} homophobes]]. Wait, that's, like, something else.

So if you want to, like, put someone like me in a story, you need these four totally important traits. Leave one out, and you just have some cheap knockoff of me, and that would just be, like, ''so'' tacky. Oh my God.
# [[UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents The way I talk is, like, way important.]] Aside from my fabulous clothes, it's the easiest way to tell it's my hot self. You can do, like, degrees of it, but if I don't hear a hint of it, you're not truly from The Valley. Go, like, ''screw yourself'', impostor!
# I am ''so'' [[TheFashionista fashion conscious]], everybody. See what I'm wearing? Does any of it, like, clash? I don't ''think so''! Unlike those skanky bitches on ''Series/SexAndTheCity'', I don't throw on just anything I feel like. A dress isn't like a car. You can't just, like, turn the key and drive off. It's like the space shuttle, or something. Everything has to be, you know, totally perfect before takeoff.
# [[TheDitz Some people say I'm dumb]], and I say those people are fat. But I just, like, don't have room in my head for too much. I mean, UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution was what, like, a hundred years ago? All the available Revlon lipstick colors are around ''right now''. [[BookDumb I think we all know which is more important.]]
# ...right? Yeah, 4. Being rich, is like, totally awesome, but you just need a good credit card. And if there isn't [[TheMall a mall]] or shopping district to hang out, or something, there should be some good stores around to shop in. If there isn't either, you totally have my sympathies. Heck, give my friends and me a call, and [[SpoiledSweet we'll help you move]]. [[SincerityMode I am so, like, dead serious.]] Towns like that are for, like, ''no one''.

Okay, even though I'm best known for being from UsefulNotes/{{California}}, I can be, like, global, or something. The Valley isn't like, just in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Fernando_Valley the Valley.]] Oh my God, was that like, totally deep or something?

Oh, and I totally know that I'm, like, not a real person in real life, or anything. I'm some kind of stereotype, you know, like parroting teens in TheEighties and TheNineties, or some junk. Even nowadays, though nobody seriously talks like this anymore, I've become, like, the default "vapid white girl" dialect. And I'm also, like, intertwined with the DumbBlonde troop now, I mean trope. And I don't care what what Mitzy Connor said, this is NOT a dye job! Puhleez!

Anyway, compare TotallyRadical, TheDitz, SurferDude (who's, like, totally hot, couldn't you just die?), BrainlessBeauty, RichInDollarsPoorInSense, {{Socialite}}, and some junk.

Also, totally not related to that UncannyValleyGirl. She's, like, ''soooooo'' weird. For sure!

!!{{Like|IsLikeAComma}}, Examples (totally):


* Played with in Creator/ParisHilton's [[http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/64ad536a6d/paris-hilton-responds-to-mccain-ad-from-paris-hilton-adam-ghost-panther-mckay-and-chris-henchy parody presidential campaign.]]
* Some advertisements in the UK promoting imported American teen dramas will use Valley Girl-esque voiceovers. Can get very annoying when they're on every ad break.
---> "[=HellooOOOOooo=] it's your mom!"

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* The NA Creator/DiC dub of ''Manga/SailorMoon'' used valley girl slang for the first two seasons. "I'm outie!" and "Whatevah!" were frequently uttered, to the chagrin of the viewers. Under Cloverway, the next two seasons [[FromBadToWorse switched to gangsta]]...
* In the English dub of ''Manga/DNAngel'', Mio Hio was given a Valley Girl accent as a substitute for the character's GratuitousEnglish dialogue in the Japanese.
* Poland from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' has a Nagoya highschooler dialect in the original Japanese strips, and this was translated into valley girl speak in most of the English scanlations. It's questionable if this was an accurate translation (since the dialect is seen as very rude and tomboyish when a girl speaks it) but it happened to fit his character perfectly as he's an [[WholesomeCrossdresser effeminate]], [[DumbBlonde blond]] [[CloudCuckooLander airhead.]]
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Misty's sisters talk like this in the English dub.
** In ''Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns'', Domino talked this way at first, [[BitchInSheepsClothing but it turned out to be an act]].
** Jessie and James pretended to be teenage Valley Girls in a Kanto episode. In the Japanese version, they were {{Gyaru Girl}}s.
* Rather annoying, the Viz Media translation of ''Manga/HotGimmick'' turns Hatsumi (and every other female character) into a Valley Girl even though she is a quiet, unconfident and rather poor Japanese teenager (seeing middle-aged conservative Japanese housewives saying "oh my god, Asuza is, like, such a hottie" is very, very jarring).
* To translate her idiosyncratic way of speaking, Tsuruya-san in the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' dub is given this type of accent.
* A couple of minor duelists in the English translation of ''Manga/HayateXBlade'' use Valley Girl speak.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Lucy at some point finds out that she just lost her father. After visiting his grave, she goes for a walk with Natsu and Happy. As fate would have it, two Valley Girls appear soon after and bitch about how they hate their stupid, bossy, smelling fathers - right in front of Lucy who is so sad that she is not even able to cry. Natsu does not take it well.
* In the dub version of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Princess Rose. (But not in the original, where she acted more like actual royalty.)
* The English dub of Anime/YurikumaArashi has Chouko Oki speak like one, with all the usual {{Verbal Tic}}s in place; every two or so words out of her mouth are punctuated with "like", "way", or, "totally". Of course, she also has the accent to boot.
* Junko Enoshima in the English dub of ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'', probably as a form of {{Woolseyism}} since she is a [[GyaruGirl gyaru]]. She [[spoiler:or rather, her disguised twin sister Mukuro Ikusaba]] was this to a lesser extent in the first ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' game's English localization as well.
* ''[[Anime/{{K}} K: Lost Small World]]'': Aya Oogai's speech is [[NoExportForYou usually translated]] like this.
* Male example: Kashuu Kiyomitsu in ''VideoGame/ToukenRanbu''. He is very into maintaining his appearance, and his body language and tone come off this way. He is neither dumb nor rich, but the overall effect is still there.
* Yukana Yame from ''Manga/MyFirstGirlfriendIsAGal'' was given this treatment in the English dub. It seems to become increasingly over-the-top with each episode.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Tabby Smith of ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}''. Creator/WarrenEllis even makes sure to {{Lampshade}} how annoying her dialogue is:
-->'''Elsa Bloodstone:''' I swear to God, nowhere on ''Earth'' do they talk like you, Tabby.
* ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'' featured a story involving the New X-Men as being part of a private academy. While many characters had similar personalities as their main universe selves, Sooraya Qadir is a radical departure as she goes from a modest, fundamentalist Muslim to a quintessential valley girl that rivals Tabitha "Boom Boom" Smith in vapidness.
* Comet Queen from ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' is a 31st Century version of a valley girl, one that speaks her own brand of slang, much to annoyance of nearly everyone she's around because half the time they have no idea what she's talking about.
* Toola from ''ComicBook/PocketGod'' acts like one, but [[HiddenDepths she's also very motherly]].
* ''ComicBook/XMen'': ComicBook/KittyPryde is a book smart, but has been portrayed as ditzy and slightly shallow at times. This was Flanderized almost beyond recognition in the first episodes of ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution''.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Misty's sisters in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' take this UpToEleven. There's also ''Paul's Pokédex'', who starts to talk like one after Ash's notices its personality matrix is too underdeveloped, and now he can't stand it.
* Sailor Venus from Megami33's ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged''.
* Also, Azula in [=GanXingBa's=] ''WebVideo/AvatarTheAbridgedSeries''.
* In ''WebVideo/KOnTheAbridgedSeries'', Mugi talks like one, [[{{Catchphrase}} like, yar]].
* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'': Rainbow Dash is, like, totally weird. She has the talk down, but she's totally into sports, and instead of money she has a [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood hilariously tragic backstory]]. (Series creator Wacarb has said he originally planned to make Dash an absolutely straight example of a Valley Girl, but [[HarpoDoesSomethingFunny he improvised all her lines]] so she quickly evolved into a distinct, but Valley-influenced, brand of [[TheDitz idiocy]].)

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* The mermaids in ''WesternAnimation/BarbieMariposa'' are obsessed with fashion and completely ignore Mariposa's attempts to ask them about the antidote. When Rayna and Rayla offer to bargain with them by giving them rare combs, they're much more interested.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'': [[TheDitz Sonata Dusk]] has the clothes, the dumbness, and the way of talking of one.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The movie ''Film/ValleyGirl'', of course!
* Cher from ''Film/{{Clueless}}'' is easily one of the most popular Valley Girls in fiction. Most of the incarnations made after the movie reference it in some way.
* Romy of ''RomyAndMichelesHighSchoolReunion'' is a born-again member of this group, since she walks the walk, talks the talk, but isn't rich and is actually from Arizona. (Michelle does the same things, but doesn't ''sound'' so, like, totally Valley, dihoood).
* Buffy in the original film incarnation of ''Film/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.
* The three {{Alpha Bitch}}es, the Plastics in ''Film/MeanGirls''.
* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' fan-film ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_Five Pink Five]]'', a hilarious look at what happens when you send a Valley Girl to attack a Death Star. Two more films were made with the same character, set in each of the sequels.
* Elle and her two girlfriends in ''Film/LegallyBlonde''. Elle is an interesting variant: she has a pretty powerful intellect, it's just that she likes the lifestyle and (at first) lacks ambition.
* Samantha from ''Film/NightOfTheComet''. Her only concern throughout TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt is whether or not she'll get laid.
* Although ''{{Film/Halloween 1978}}'' is set in Illinois, the character Lynda is famed for saying "like" and "totally" at the end of every other sentence.
* All the girls in ''Film/WhiteChicks'' had some form of this throughout the film. Including the Wayans. Karen, Lisa, and Tori to a lesser degree.
* A few minor characters in ''Film/InAWorld...''. Lake Bell recruits them for her vocal training service to teach them to sound like [[RealWomenDontWearDresses "women" and not "sexy babies"]].

* Goss and Kylie in the ''Literature/CorinnaChapman'' series are Valley Girls, but they do actually help the protagonists occasionally.
* In the Literature/PaladinOfShadows book ''A Deeper Blue'', Katya takes up this sort of persona as a disguise.
* George Alec Effinger plays with this in his stories about ''Literature/MaureenBirnbaumBarbarianSwordsperson''. The stories are also very funny riffs on fantasy and SF stories.
%% * Erin and Shaunee from ''Literature/TheHouseOfNight'' fall into this category, but Zoey and Aphrodite do have their moments.
* In ''Literature/{{Murderess}}'', [[AlphaBitch Bridget]] and her posse are the English equivalent, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essex_girls Essex girls]].
* In ''Literature/BeautyQueens'' [[spoiler: Shanti Singh is one, but puts on an British inflected Indian accent, as she feels that this is how the judges want to see an Indian girl. She feels too Indian for the Americans, but too American for the Indians. This is why she disguises her true Valley Girl self]].
* ''Literature/AMagesPower'': Parodied by Mia when Tiza calls her a "smiling pink haired ditz". She affects the accent while threatening to give Tiza a mission that she knows Tiza will hate. Tiza immediately recants.
* In ''Literature/BubbleWorld'', every girl in Agalinas is like this, partially due to memory erasure, partially due to an extreme focus on shopping, hair, and makeup, and partially due to the education system being tailored to their wants, not needs.
* Despite being set in London, the ''Literature/BridgetJones'' series had a twenty-something assistant named [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude Patchouli]] who behaves in a similar manner, yet subverts the trope by being very respectful (esp. to Bridget) and more competent than their incompetent and drug-addicted BadBoss Richard Finch.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
%%* Jennifer from ''Series/SquarePegs''.
* Parodied in "deleted scenes" from ''Series/{{House}}'' where actresses, Lisa Edelstein and Jennifer Morrisson perform some of their scenes together while speaking and acting like valley girls.
-->'''Cuddy:''' You just go and you, like, write something. And then, like, you end up in this really fancy office with like a huge desk and fancy shoes and, like, people will call you and they'll be like "Omg, we like totally wanna work with Eric Foreman", and you'll be like "I have so many totally mean things to say to you."\\
'''Cameron:''' I get, like, fancy shoes?\\
'''Cuddy:''' Yeah, that's the best part.
* In the ''Series/PushingDaisies'' episode "Robbing Hood", Elise, the gold-digging wife of the VictimOfTheWeek, talks like a Valley Girl. ("Oh, my God! You think I totally did it!")
* Julie Stark from ''Series/{{Shark}}''.
* Debbie from ''Series/{{Heroes}}''. Claire herself is [[TotallyRadical kind of borderline]].
* Hilary Banks from ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir''. Even though she has all the mannerisms down, she's actually from Bel-Air and in one episode describes hell as being "like, the Valley".
* During one "Hollywood Director Game" on ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', Colin demanded that his "actors" portray the scene again as "clueless teenage girls" - Valley Girl was the first thing on their minds, except Wayne Brady went with a [[SassyBlackWoman Sassy Black Girl]] portrayal instead.
* The original ''Series/AllThat'' had a recurring sketch called "Whateverrr!" which was a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jhNsMS-Ykg talk show hosted by two valley girls]], played by Amanda Bynes and Christy Knowings.
* ''Series/TheXFiles''. "Syzygy" shows the terrible consequences of two valley girls gaining cosmic powers.
* ''Series/XPlay'''s eighties flashback episode had Morgan Webb act like one of these.
* ''Series/DharmaAndGreg'': Dharma acts like this when [[ItMakesSenseInContext shopping for a dress to wear on a date to a prom with a high school kid]].
-->'''Shop owner:''' What's the dress for?\\
'''Dharma:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint For, like, my body.]]
* Jackie from ''Series/That70sShow'' has elements of this (though she's from Wisconsin).
* ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' portrayed the LoveGoddess, Aphrodite as a Valley Girl played by Alexandra Tydings.
* In the episode, "Boston Tea Party" from ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'', Zack dreams he and all his friends were the ones that participated in the titular event. In this dream, the cast is talking about the skyrocketing taxes, only for Maddie to exclaim that she may not afford the down payment on her used horse. Then, she gives us this tidbit:
-->'''Maddie:''' And I'm totally getting my license, like, this year!\\
''Moseby looks sceptical''.\\
'''Esteban:''' She's a Valley Forge Girl.\\
'''Moseby:''' Ah.
* For a British chick, Creator/CatherineTate can be, like, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fGZtrBeDcQ&feature=fvst totally Val!]]
* A RunningGag in ''Series/TheArmstrongAndMillerShow'' has two RAF officers in World War II speak Valley Girl with upper class accents.
* Larraine Newman on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' possibly did the first seen version of this type of character in the 1970s.
* As of season 3, episode 7, ''Series/OrphanBlack'' has a valley girl: Krystal, one of the Project Leda clones. Loves pink, blonde hair, hot guys on her locker, she has it all..... except there are [[HiddenDepths hints]] dropped all throughout her introductory episode that show she's a bit wiser than you'd expect.
* ''Series/SavedByTheBell'':
** Lisa straddles the line. She's a fashion obsessed rich girl who frequently spends "Daddy's money", occasionally dropping "like" and "totally". But she's a little smarter than most traditional instances - and the fashion obsession is partly because she wants to work in the industry.
** Minor character Ginger is a straight example. She's a DumbBlonde who frequently pops up asking characters if there's lipstick on her teeth.
* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'':
** Morgan is a little more capable than most examples but she's vain, fashion-obsessed and materialistic. {{Flanderization}} in Season 7 turned her into a straight example.
** Sabrina herself becomes one when her EvilTwin infects her with an "airhead virus". She and Morgan get on very well when it happens.
** Used as a one-off joke in an episode where Sabrina tries to conjure up a princess. She gets a ValleyGirl on her phone, begging Daddy not to cut her off.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Cordelia was presented as this initially. But HiddenDepths were revealed pretty quickly, and she was revealed to be quite smart.
** In Season 2, Buffy's appearance was tweaked to properly resemble a ValleyGirl - bleached blonde hair, fashionable clothes, a lot of bubblegum coloured nails etc. This was to make the dissonance between her appearance, and the fact that she was a fearsome ActionGirl even more pronounced. A flashback to her life before she was a Slayer shows that she fit the ValleyGirl trope through and through.
** Kimberly starts off Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers as a stereotypical ValleyGirl but matures throughout the series.

* Parodied in Creator/WilliamShatner's album ''Has Been''.
-->''My kids say, "He said to me, and I'm like and he's like and she's like"\\
"It's all, he's all, she's all"\\
I can't get behind that kind of, [[GotMeDoingIt like, English]]''
* Music/FrankZappa's BlackSheepHit "Valley Girl" from ''Music/ShipArrivingTooLateToSaveADrowningWitch'' like, totally counts, for being like, ''totally'' the UrExample fer shure! Features guest vocals from Zappa's daughter Moon Unit, who generally doesn't talk like this. Frank would later [[CreatorBacklash disown the song]] when its success [[MisaimedFandom made him out to be a novelty act]].
* Music/{{Kesha}}'s schtick is basically [[JustForFun/XMeetsY valley girl mannerisms and quirks plus]] AutoTune. He first single, "Tik Toc," is a prime example. She's made it clear, though, that [[ObfuscatingStupidity it's definitely an act]].
* And then I went to [=TVTropes=], like, totally expecting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz7_3n7xyDg this one]] in the list, but you're all like 'eeeghhn'...
* "Baby Got Back" by Music/SirMixALot famously opens with two (presumably Caucasian) mall brats talking about another girl's big butt.
--> "Oh my god Becky, look at her butt. It is like, so big."
* "Stupid Girls" by Music/{{Pink}} is about these. She even appears briefly ([[DawsonCasting and convincingly]]) as one in the MusicVideo for the song.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aseQzJI4zg Laura Pérez, la sin par de Caurimare]]" by Venezuelan comedy group Medioevo, shows a portrait of a local specimen circa 1982. The song is from the perspective of the titular Laura, trying to fend off the accusations of being a "sifrina" (the local word for this trope, albeit with insulting connotations) [[HypocriticalHumor while demonstrating every and each one of the associated stereotypes]].
* Sure, I'll like, totally tell you Music/TheChainsmokers song about us called ''#Selfie'', [[MemeticMutation but first, lemmie take a selfie]].
* Music/{{Britney Spears}} and {{Music/Iggy Azalea}} in ''Pretty Girls'' music video where they act as one. It is inspired by ''Film/{{Earth Girls Are Easy}}'', directed and produced by Creator/JulieBrown.

* Played straight with one of the damsels in ''Pinball/MedievalMadness''
* Heather, the DumbBlonde in ''Pinball/AmericasMostHaunted''
-->"The elevator's stuck! There's, like, totally a ghost in here!"
* The DamselInDistress of ''Pinball/StrangeScience'' '''thinks''' in val-speak.
-->''Help! Totally.''

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/LayCool began as a generic AlphaBitch tandem, but CharacterizationMarchesOn saw them become exaggerated Valley Girls - obsessed with make-up, fashion, fame and being "flawless".
* Malibu [=McKenzie=] of ''{{Wrestling/Wrestlicious}}'' was advertised as this, but appeared as a HospitalHottie when she was actually on the show for some reason.
* ''Wrestling/{{GLOW}}'' had California Doll -- who was a combination of this and the SurferDude.
* Nikki of the Wrestling/BellaTwins is sometimes presented as this. She's a California native and a lover of high fashion - not to mention having the stereotypical Valley Girl voice. On ''Series/TotalDivas'' she's often played up as TheDitz to her GranolaGirl of a sister.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Veronika Lee and Britney Bloodrose from ''VideoGame/AllPointsBulletin''.
* Perky villagers in ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' series are often described as this.
%%* ''VideoGame/BlazBlueContinuumShift'': "Nu, for the love of God. The valley or the sea. Just pick one."
* ''VideoGame/CityOfVillains'' has Becky the Tarantula Mistress, who doesn't let being a hideously-mutated psychic trapped in a spider-like exoskeleton armour detract from her giddy enthusiasm upon meeting the player character.
* Berri from ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay''.
* The Light Switches in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas: Old World Blues''.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Yuffie is localised as talking like this ("Oh, wow, I'm totally clueless."). Toned down enormously in the sequels and prequels, perhaps mercifully.
* ''Website/GaiaOnline's'' Sasha. For some reason her Valley Girl speech never shows in the comics, though, just her shop dialogue.
* The female patrons of the Kai Tek Resort in ''VideoGame/{{Jazzpunk}}'' all talk like this.
* Yuudachi from ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' has the famous VerbalTic "poi," which is roughly translated as "like" in English. Hence, her speech pattern is often translated as a valley girl in English.
* Josephine from the obscure SNES game ''Videogame/KendoRage''.
* Khrynia from ''VideoGame/TheLastRemnant'' is, like, totally stronger than before!
* Rosa from ''VideoGame/{{The Legend of Zelda Oracle|Games}} of Seasons''.
* In the second installment of ''VideoGame/TheLostVikings'', the sorceress met by the heroes in the early levels embodies this trope. Especially her voice acting.
* Priel from ''VideoGame/LuminousArc'' is portrayed like this.
* There was, like, that quarian girl from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' whose oblivious conversation with a lovestruck turian on Illium was one of the funniest moments of the game. She also [[LampshadeHanging echoed many of the comments]] made by fans who desired WrenchWench Tali from the first game as a love interest. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_Fsng6KUX4 Uh, excuse me, human, private conver-say-shee-yun?! Ugh!]]
* The, like, ''red-headed'' elf-girl in ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic VII'' talked like this. Like, totally, all the time!
* Goombella from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' is an [[GeniusDitz odd hybrid]] of this and the {{geek}}.
* Ayase Yuka, the resident kogal, (see Real Life folder) is this in ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}''.
* Ini Miney in the second ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' game. [[spoiler:Except that it's an act adopted in imitation of the ''real'' Ini Miney. The one you meet is actually her sister.]]
* Cipher Admin Lovrina from ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'' shows most of the characteristics of a typical valley girl, but [[VerbalTic so]] not the lack of intelligence; she is so the EvilGenius, and, in fact, [[RuleOfThree so]] singlehandedly developed a way to make Lugia impossible to purify (through standard methods, at least)!
* MIO from ''VideoGame/RogueGalaxy''. The dialect is part of the reason many consider her TheScrappy.
* A female character in a comic strip advertisement for ''VideoGame/SolarFox'' for the UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} talks and acts like this. She even does it in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnYA6kRDZfs the TV commercial]].
* The fauns in ''VideoGame/Spyro2RiptosRage'' level "Fracture Hills". Unusually, Elora is a faun as well but ahw doesn't speak like this.
* Bratty and Catty from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. "We're, like... SO hyped for the destruction of humanity!"
* Cherry from ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles''. "So, like, dodging's no fair, okay?"
* Um... like, Nao-Nao from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou''.
* It's kinda weird, considering she's, like, supposed to be a Japanese [[GyaruGirl gone-goo-row girl]], but Musume Ronshaku in VideoGame/YandereSimulator totally fits the mold. She even talks like a basic bitch, y'know? "OMG, you are like the best!" "Oh, my gawwwd." "[=WhatEVER.=]"
* Tracy De Santa from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''.
-->"Oh My God your such a fucking dictator!"

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* Averted by Flamegirl from ''WebAnimation/{{TOME}}'', whose player is from Burbank, which is like, totally ''in'' the Valley; but she doesn't act like a Val at all.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* PlayedForLaughs in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' with the humorously-named Val'erie Val'ley'gurl.
* The GM from ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' seems to play (here as NPC) [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Mon Mothma]], out of all the ''Franchise/StarWars'' characters, this way.
* Karla is the typical "Niña Fresa" in ''Webcomic/M9Girls''
* ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' has a [[http://yafgc.net/comic/1805-for-sure/ Valley Elf]].
* Sister America in ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'' is portrayed as this, at least initially. More recent strips have mostly dropped this part of her character.
* ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'': Blair gets ahold of a [[GenderBender gender-bending]] orb, which he uses to transform people into Valley Girls, his "ideal woman".
* An anonymous extra in ''Webcomic/GoodGuyComic'' is one of these.
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Diane [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=884 acts like this]] in order to get out of trouble. Raven sees through the act but lets her go anyway and expresses appreciation that neither Grace nor Ellen try that routine on him.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* There's a ''WebVideo/Lonelygirl15'' parody called "valleygirl15". She recaps the series with a valley girl voice and liberal quantities of {{Take That}}s and snark.
* ''WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment'': Spoony pretends to be one for [[http://blip.tv/file/3246275 his review]] of "Party Mania".
* Since the stories center around [[SuperheroSchool a high school]] in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', it shouldn't be surprising that some of the girls from California sound like this. Scrambler may be the worst, since she is a speedster and tends to talk faster than she thinks.
* Like, Bizarro Sister from like, ''Roleplay/MallFight'', like, ya know?
* Kelly from Liam Sullivan's Kelly series.
* ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' gives us Cecil, the community radio host, narrator and (for all intents and purposes) main character. Very little is given about his physical appearance and economic status, and he is presented as quite intelligent and philosophical. This trope only comes across in his speech, when he sometimes drops into a valley-girl cadence when reciting quotes from certain people or going on one of his "personal asides".
* ''Blog/ThingsMrWelchIsNoLongerAllowedToDoInAnRPG'': 26. Valley speak has no place in a fantasy setting. Especially if you're the paladin.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Lumpy Space]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess]], and pretty much everyone else from [[{{Cloudcuckooland}} Lumpy Space]] for that matter.
* Ty Lee of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has been described as the Fire Nation version of this. Her [[{{Foil}} best friend]] is a snarky goth.
* Claire Brewster from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' cartoon. She auditions for a school play of ''Romeo And Juliet'' and throws in "total babe" in her lines, in contrast to Lydia who delivers her lines straight and sincerely.
* ''WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens'':
** Jett, if the way she talks is any indication.
** Rachel and Cindy from "Eye of the Tigress." No, really; they're actually from Valley High and the way they talk make Jett sound absolutely posh.
%%* Kelly, Bobby's sister in ''WesternAnimation/BobbysWorld''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Bratz}}'':
** The "tweevils" from the ''Bratz'' TV series and (animated) movies ([[ToylessToylineCharacter there are no dolls of the tweevils]]).
** Cloe fits this too [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]].
* The, like, wicked cheerleader Stacy appears in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' and totally fits this trope. For the record, she is actually from California.
* The Little Traitor Dudes For Children's Defense, from the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' episode "Operation P.O.O.L.", who were the MirrorUniverse counterparts to the Delightful Children From Down The Lane.
* The "Paige and Saige" sections of ''WesternAnimation/{{Crashbox}}'' feature two Valley Girl twins who look suspiciously like Franchise/{{Barbie}} dolls.
* Lauchpad's teenage sister Loopy from the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode "Top Duck" talks like this, frequently using "like" and "totally" in her sentences.
%%* Veronica in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents''.
* [[AlphaBitch Shellsea]] from ''WesternAnimation/FishHooks'' has, like, a complete Valley Girl accent.
* Amy Wong from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' is definitely an example of this: wealthy family, loves shopping and even uses a sci-fi-twisted version of the lingo ("Guh" and "spluh are favorites of hers). Averted in that she is extremely intelligent despite her seemingly ditzy demeanor and has a Ph. D in applied physics.
* There's an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' where Garfield encounters a niece of Jon's who is explicitly referred to as a valley girl. Her accent is so bad Garfield even hires a professional linguist to add annotations explaining what she's saying to the audience. See the full episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwoTtX4C8hk&NR=1 here]].
* Duzer the Gorgon in ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh''. Among other things constantly saying: ''Get a life'' and ''or what?''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' has Mindy. Also, Eris started out as one.
* Kimber from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' has aspects of this. It's understandable as she's a teen in 80s California.
* [[TheDitz Ditzy]] June (in ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'''s first season) had a slight Valley Girl accent in the very early season one episodes, despite her being a huge tomboy.
* Ophelia from ''WesternAnimation/TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee'' would occasionally talk like a valley girl despite being a gothic punk girl.
* Whittany and Brittany Biskit, also known as the Biskit Twins, from, like, ''WesternAnimation/{{Littlest Pet Shop|2012}}'' (2012).
* Leni Loud from ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' abuses the word [[LikeIsLikeAComma "like" almost without end]], is notoriously airheaded and has an undying passion for clothing. Her sister Lori has valley girl shades as well, similarly over- and mis-using "literally", being [[PhoneaholicTeenager glued to her phone]] and thoroughly obsessed with her boyfriend, though she's also one of the most grounded of their siblings. Hilariously, when Leni is made to imitate Lori, she adopts an incredibly exaggerated valley girl accent and visibly crosses her eyes, implying she believes her older sister to [[HypocriticalHumor fully fit the stereotype]].
* Princess Zange from ''WesternAnimation/MightyMagiswords'' talks like the most stereotypical popular teen, and spends an episode clothes shopping for herself ''and'' her hired bodyguards. She dodges the "dumb" part, though; She's not, like, a total brainiac, but there's times she knows, like, WAY more than she's telling.
* Claire from ''WesternAnimation/{{Motorcity}}'', even though she lives in Detroit (Deluxe).
* Miss Chatterbox in the U.S. dub of ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow''
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** The episode "Putting Your Hoof Down" like, featured a couple of mares like this. They even, like, had total EightiesHair. Shoeshine, Sweetie Drops/Bon Bon, and Cherry Berry also have the accent in this episode.
** Ditto Flitter and Cloudchaser, the Pegasus twins from "Hurricane Fluttershy"; and Lightning Dust from "Wonderbolts Academy". "We ''totally'' wiped them out with that tornado."
** Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon. "Waiting for your cutie mark is so last week... You're still totally invited to my cutceañera this weekend".
** Lyra talks this way in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E9SliceOfLife Slice of Life]]".
** Lily Lace, one of the fashion designers from "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E9HonestApple Honest Apple]]". At one point, she, like, literally gets, like, so fed up with Applejack's attitude [[{{Angrish}} that she, like, literally, like, she can't even...*gag*.]]
%%* Debbies from ''WesternAnimation/TheOblongs''.
* A rare male example, but Mr. Jinks from ''WesternAnimation/PixieDixieAndMrJinks '' fits this perfectly, "Like are you for sure, there."
* Brattina from ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies1980s'', with her constant use of the term "mummy dearest" and referring to practically everything doesn't like as "icky".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' has this with [[AlphaBitch The Ashleys]]. "[[CatchPhrase SCANDALOUS!]]"
** Which they apparently inherit from their mothers.
* Shaggy from ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' is a male example.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** The episode, "Summer of 4 ft. 2", has Lisa befriending a group of cool surfer kids on vacation. Besides dressing in hippy/surfer clothes, Lisa uses valley girl speech to disguise herself as one of them, instead of a shy nerd . . . like, you know, whatever.
** In "Lard of the Dance", the new student, Alex Whitney shares this trope. She uses valley girl slang, which is mainly used by teenage girls.
* Katiebug and Sadiebug, the ladybug twins from ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake'''''s Berry Bitty Adventures''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'':
** Shirley the Loon is like, a mondo primo example. If only she had more fashion sense instead of, like, being a hippie new age girl, or some junk. Cha.
*** It should, like, be noted that the voice actress who did Shirley's voice is one Gail Matthius, a cast member from the sixth season of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' who had a recurring character who was a Valley Girl named Vicki (duh!). She also used this character on a syndicated sketch show called ''LaughTrax''. The last anyone's heard of Gail Matthius was during the nineties when she did voicework in cartoons, often as a Valley Girl.
** Babs also posed as one running the speech class of a fake charm school to outwit Dizzy Devil in one episode. Turns out the Valley Girl equivalent of the "Rain in Spain" verse is "The Walls in the Mall are ''tew''tally ''tew''tally tall." Fer sure.
* Summer of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is a milder example than most, but not so mild as to keep from getting mocked for it:
-->'''Ship A.I.:''' "My function is 'Keep Summer safe,' not '[[SarcasmMode Keep Summer being, like, totally stoked about, like, the general vibe, and stuff.]]' ...That's ''you''; That's how you talk."
* The Sphinx who guards the town from ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'' fits this to a tee.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'':
** The dear sweet Lindsay. Although she took a lesson in badass when [[spoiler: she cussed out Heather in season one just before getting eliminated,]] she reverted back to herself right afterward.
** Heather started as one, and there are still traces of it, but it's less noticeable in later seasons.
** Taylor from the spin-off ''WesternAnimation/TheRidonculousRace'' talks in this accent, on top of her BuffySpeak. Jen too.
* The girls of ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'', especially Clover that speaks fluent Valley speak and the surf culture language.
%%* Debbie from ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys''.
* This is how the ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' version of Shadowcat was for, like, just least the first season.
** Amusingly at one point Rogue touches her, and acts like a Valley Girl too. Much to her disgust.
-->'''Rogue:''' Ew, that was so totally like icksome. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Aw, now I'm talking like her?!]]
** Ironically, the comics had a perfectly good Valley Girl in the form of Jubilee-- who ''doesn't'' talk this way when she shows up in the series!

[[folder:Real Life]]
* If you, like, actually think we don't exist in RealLife, you can, like, go to hell, or something. Oh, and, like, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJuEkDo-i_o&feature=related watch this video]]. You can totally see one of us about, like, a minute in.
* The speech patterns associated with valley girls, such as using "like" as an interjection or a substitute for "said", [[JustForFun/TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs have started to become ubiquitous among the younger generations in the United States and Canada, but can even be observed among people from older generations as well.]]
** Within Southern California itself, the rising pitch has effectively entered the local accent among young people -- [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-25232387 even the men]] are using it.
* [[GyaruGirl Kogals]], the Japanese counterpart. There's also Ganguro, which is Valley Girl with heavy tans.
* The British equivalent is the Essex girl, although it's more insulting as it focuses more on [[ReallyGetsAround being sexually promiscuous]] and unintelligent (very much like the DumbBlonde). It was briefly a DiscreditedTrope [[CyclicTrope before coming popular again]] when ''Series/TheOnlyWayIsEssex'' started appearing on telly.
** The Danish equivalent to the Essex-girl is Randers-girl, Clueless, promiscuous, low class girls with an attitude, especially against authorities.
* Within the US, there exist several analogues to the valley girl stereotype in other parts of the country.
** The Jersey girl stereotype is pretty much a {{Joisey}}-accented version of the Essex girl (particularly the promiscuity), coupled with [[BrooklynRage an attitude problem]]. Given the similarities in stereotypes between UsefulNotes/NewJersey and Essex in general (i.e. suburban sprawl for the nation's largest city, filled with chavs and {{emo teen}}s[[note]]New Jersey even has an Essex County, the third most populated in the state and home to its largest city[[/note]]), this is rather fitting.
** Also common on the East Coast is the stereotype of the JewishAmericanPrincess, which takes the vanity and narcissism of the valley girl and adds sexual prudishness and an ethnic dimension.
* The Mexican equivalent is the "Niña Fresa" (Strawberry Girl) or "Chica Nice" (Nice Chick/Girl).
* Cindy Margolis identifies herself as one:
-->"I'm a Valley Girl. You can't get me out of the Valley, I'm still here."
* Creator/EmiliaClarke [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIBg-w6TNLE jokes]] that she put this voice on to avoid being recognised in public once - pretending to be "Callie from the valley".
--> "I like love ''{{Film/Clueless}}''."
* UsefulNotes/LosAngeles billboard model and San Fernando Valley resident Angelyne has made a career from such a public image. In fact, she has been [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/angelyne-la-billboard-diva-30-years-1025678 pointed to]] as an UrExample for the likes of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
