Smurfette (La Schtroumpfette)
Voiced by: Lucille Bliss - The Smurfs cartoon show
Lisa Young - Smurf Racer Video Game
Berangere McNeese [English dub] - The Smurfs 2021

Originally the only female Smurf in the village, created by Gargamel as a weapon against the Smurfs and changed into a real Smurf by Papa Smurf.

  • Action Girl: Promoted to this in the live-action movie
  • Adaptational Badass: Smurfette in the Live-Action films is more of an Action Girl which can be jarring if you're used to how she usually acts in the comics and the animated series.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the original story, Smurfette was never evil; her goal was to unintentionally cause the Smurfs to fight among themselves due to her mere presence, and Papa Smurf simply gave her the plastic surgery to stop the Smurfs from mocking her note . The cartoon and other adaptations make Smurfette be a willing agent for Gargamel (even if coerced by fear) and her transformation is a consequence of being magically turned into a "true Smurf".
  • Ascended Extra: At the end of her first comic appearance, she left the village and became an incidental character. The cartoon show made her into a regular, and the comics followed starting from "The Baby Smurf". Of course, some post-Peyo comic book stories have Smurfette appear mostly in cameo, such as The Jewel Smurfer.
  • Anti Anti Christ: She's actually a Made of Evil Naughty created by Gargamel as a weapon against the Smurfs, she infiltrated the village and sowed chaos in the town, but the Smurf's kindness made her have a Heel–Face Turn and decide to become a real smurf. This trope is specially prevalent in The Smurfs 2.
    Grace: Wow, Smurfette, you work pretty good with that wand!
    Smurfette: It's kind of in my blood, which used to concern me... but... as someone wonderful once told me, it doesn't matter where you came from, what matters is who you choose to be.
  • Badass Adorable: After she Took a Level in Badass in the live-action movie.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: She was initially an unattractive Smurfette created by Gargamel. The cartoon features her makeover as seemingly coming with her Heel–Face Turn.
  • Blessed with Suck: In the episode where she does a spirited imitation of King Midas and uses a spell to turn everything she touches into Smurfberry candy, including a very unfortunate Brainy Smurf, who accidentally shook her hand to comfort her, not knowing why she was upset.
  • Born as an Adult: Created as an adult female Smurf by Gargamel, the Smurfs' enemy, in order to distract and trap them.
  • The Cameo: She is reduced to this a few times in the comic book stories that don't focus on her or specifically include her as part of the main plot.
  • Catchphrase: In the cartoon, it's "Boo-hoo." She cries a lot, and literally says "Boo-hoo" while doing so.
  • Composite Character: In Smurfs: The Lost Village, she's taken on the role and general personality traits of Dabbler Smurf, seeking a purpose in life and trying her hand at everything but never sticking with anything for very long. Her character profile in the pitch bible for the 2021 cartoon specifically mentions this trait as central to her character:
    Smurfette is also a little scattered, always trying the newest thing, then losing interest as she moves onto something else, leaving a trail of unfinished projects behind her.
  • Damsel in Distress: Rarely is there an episode where Smurfette does NOT need someone else to rescue her. Mostly averted in the live-action movie.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Causes this reaction with her fellow Smurfs.
  • Dude Magnet: Especially at the beginning, when all the male smurfs (including Papa Smurf in one episode) were in love with her. This is toned down over time with Smurfette having more a Like Brother and Sister relationship with the other smurfs.
  • Dumb Blonde: The comic version is an inversion of the trope, as she had the stereotypical Dumb Blonde personality as a brunette, and after becoming blonde gets a boost in common sense.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Smurfette is modeled after Gargamel, so he creates her with short black hair. At the beginning, everyone finds her unappealing, so Papa Smurf gives her a makeover. After she becomes a blonde, everyone falls in love with her.
  • Eye Awaken: Pulls this in The Smurfs 2 when she was first created as a Naughty by Gargamel.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: The cartoon version originally was an evil female smurf created by Gargamel; she started as a brunette, but was turned into a blonde when she became good.
  • Happily Adopted: By Papa Smurf in the film series.
  • Head-Turning Beauty: Smurfette, after her plastic smurfery in the comics and her magical makeover in the cartoon show, elicits this response in her fellow Smurfs.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Smurfette when she was first created goes through this when she is transformed into a real Smurf through magic in the cartoon show by Papa Smurf. This only applies to the Animated Adaptation. She was never evil in the original comicbooks.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Even Harmony Smurf notices how bad she sings.
  • Idiot Ball: Numerous characters call her out, including Mother Nature, in the episode where she is insistent on creating a blue rose, damn the consequences.
  • Insubstantial Ingredients: The original comics and the Animated Adaptation each feature their own formula for her creation, but both include elements of the trope:
    • Comicbook: The clay statue was given life by being dipped in a formula made from a pinch of coquetry, a good layer of bias, three crocodile tears, a lizard brain, viper tongue powder, one carat of simpathy, a handful of wrath, one finger of lies, a thimble of gluttony, a pint of bad faith, a pinch of inconscience, a bit of sentimentality, a measure of silliness and a measure of cunning, much ingenuity and stubbornness, and a candle that has burned at both ends.
    • Cartoon: She was magically created from blue clay, sugar and spice but nothing nice, crocodile tears, half a pack of lies, a chatter of a magpie, and the hardest stone for her heart.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Wears multiple copies of the same dress, yet treats them as though they were different outfits.
  • Magic Plastic Surgery: Or make that "plastic smurfery", which is the explanation in the original English translation of the story "The Smurfette" for how the title character was changed from her original appearance into a real Smurf.
  • Mama Bear: Around Baby Smurf.
  • Nice Girl: She's very sweet, sensitive, caring, and gets along with everyone.
  • Prone to Tears: Often crying when something goes wrong.
  • Rule 63: She is the one of the few female Smurfs. Even The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy mock this. Technically, there are three female Smurfs and one robotic one, but most people only remember her.
  • Skip of Innocence: In the comic books, she goes for walks in the forest where she does this.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: Not that often but in "The Masked Pie Smurfer" she gets Pie in the Face repeatedly like all the male Smurfs. The only one immune to this was actually Papa Smurf, not Smurfette.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Trope Namer, as the most well-known example of a lone female character among a male cast. However, she actually zigzags the trope, as at first she wasn't even a regular character, and even when she became a regular, Sassette and later other females (varying from continuity to continuity) were promptly added to the cast.
  • Territorial Smurfette: While she was an aversion most of the timenote , she becomes an straight example by getting jealous of Mermaid Smurfette.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Sassette's Tomboy.
  • Traumatic Haircut: In The Smurfs 2, her hair gets cut off to a bob by Gargamel. She makes it appear that she went through this in the cartoon episode "Smurfette's Golden Tresses".
  • The Vamp: She was this before her Heel–Face Turn
  • Women Are Wiser: The producers tried to compensate for her being the only female for much of the series by making her smarter than most to the point of almost becoming second in command of the village.
  • Younger Than They Look: Smurfette is only a few years old despite looking like a young adult female Smurf.

     Baby Smurf 
Baby Smurf (Bébé Schtroumpf)
Voiced by: Paul Winchell, Julie McWhirter-Dees - The Smurfs cartoon show

Brought to the Smurf village by stork on the night of the blue moon, and has since then been the darling of all the Smurfs.

  • Baby Talk: In the comics, he does eventually learn to talk but still, due to his young age, has a very limited vocabulary (and also a smaller role overall). In the cartoon, he mostly just giggles and coos — his first word, to the surprise of the Smurfs, is "Gargamel."
  • Cheerful Child: He is usually happy even in the direst situations.
  • Child Mage: In the animated series he occasionally displays curious magical powers, though never when anyone else is watching.
  • Fearless Infant: Occasionally invokes the trope, though is seldom in any real danger.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Immune, it seems, to magic designed to make people angry, evil, or even emotionless.
  • Morality Pet: To several characters, including Grouchy and Jokey, who will spare him their usual attitudes and pranks. note  Averted, however, with Gargamel, who is just as nasty to Baby as he is to the other Smurfs.

Sassette (Sassette)
Voiced by: Julie McWhirter-Dees - The Smurfs cartoon show

The second female Smurf created after Smurfette.

  • Adapted Out:
    • Many Smurfs don't appear by name in the CGI film adaptations, but the absent Sassette gets a very conspicuous Captain Ersatz named Vexy. Though it's more likely the case of the movies being an Alternate Continuity.
    • The comic books, on the other hand, treat her and her fellow Smurflings as perpetual guest stars and cameos, mostly to maintain the idea that Smurfette is the only female Smurf in the village and the stories are all about the adult Smurfs.
  • Affirmative Action Girl: Her whole raison d'etre is to give Smurfette some female company.
  • Braids of Action: Her usual hairstyle.
  • Broken Pedestal: Despite how evil Gargamel is, Sassette still loved him as her “Pappy Gargamel” no matter the situation. Until the season 6 episode "Smurf on the Run" when she and Gargamel spent some one on one time together... Despite their adventure together; via Gargamel holding the Topaz of Truth which forces him to tell the truth that he wants to eat her, she finally catches on that he’s not someone to be loved. As a result, she’s absolutely heartbroken.
  • The Cameo: In the comic book story You Don't Smurf Progress.
  • Catchphrase: "Smurfaroo!" Shared with the other Smurflings.
  • Companion Cube: Has one in the cartoon show in the form of a doll named Smurfy Lou.
  • Fiery Redhead: In the cartoon show episode of her origin before Papa Smurf changed her into a real Smurf. She still keeps the red hair.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She has red hair in braided pigtails.
  • Happily Adopted: To Papa Smurf in the cartoon show.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Inverted in the cartoon show, as Sassette refers to Gargamel as her real father, though Gargamel honestly wants nothing to do with her family-wise...even more so when she was first created and she became a living time bomb.
  • Meaningful Name: More so in the cartoon show, because she was a little troublemaker before Papa Smurf used his magic to turn her into a real Smurf.
  • Motor Mouth: At least in the comics.
  • Naked on Arrival: Only in her comic book origin, which caused the usual reaction from her fellow Smurflings.
  • One of the Boys: She's a bit of a tomboy and mainly hangs out with the other 3 male Smurflings.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Subverted. As said below, she wears pink but is a Tomboy.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Smurfette's Girly Girl.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Snappy.
  • Why Am I Ticking?: Her origin story involved her accidentally becoming a walking time bomb due to Gargamel putting a spell on the blue clay used to make her that would make her explode upon exposure to the noonday sun.

     Clockwork Smurf 
Clockwork Smurf (Schtroumpf Robot/Mécanique)
Voiced by: Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show

A wooden robotic Smurf created by Handy Smurf.

  • Bamboo Technology: His nose, ears and feet keep clear that he's made of wood.
  • Clockwork Creature: While his inner works aren't always visible, a few times we can see he works by gears.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: Part of his origin story in the cartoon show, when Brainy's accident gave him life and sentience.
  • Nice Hat: In the comic books, the hat is used to dispense liquid such as sarsaparilla soup. Gargamel took advantage of this and made a fake Clockwork Smurf with a hat that dispensed a soup that turned the Smurfs into mutants.
    • Clockwork Smurf in the comic book story was a character swap for the Benco chocolate milk bottle that appeared in a multi-part story ad.
  • No-Sell: Clockwork Smurf is the one and only character in The Smurf's universe to ever look upon an unhooded Nemesis without curling up in sheer, unbridled terror, due to the inherent purity of his heart of gold, though even he was disgusted.
  • There Was a Door: In the episode aptly named "Heart of Stone," Gargamel and Scruple manage to capture Clockwork Smurf, and get him to work for them by replacing his heart of gold with a heart of stone. Whenever Gargamel would send him out of the room on a task, he'd walk through the stone wall, ignoring the very large wooden, and wide-open, door. Gargamel overlooked it because Clockwork Smurf was very competent at his task, including capturing his fellow Smurfs.
  • The Unintelligible: Clockwork Smurf can only speak in machine squeaks in the cartoon show, whereas in the comic books he was able to speak in Smurf language right from the start.

     Clockwork Smurfette 
Clockwork Smurfette (Schtroumpfette Robot/Mecanique)
Voiced by: (possibly) Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show

A Distaff Counterpart to Clockwork Smurf that was created by Handy as a female companion. Appears mostly in the Animated Adaptation, with just a brief appearance in a comic story.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: While generally the comics came first, she first appeared in the Animated Adaptation, so in her case the cartoon came first with her as a brunette, and her brief comic appearance later made her a blonde.
  • Badass Adorable: A cute little robot girl- who's strong enough to lift Azrael over her head and throw him.
  • Fembot: Created explicitly to be a female, so Clockwork Smurf could have a girlfriend.

     Wild Smurf 
Wild Smurf (Schtroumpf Sauvage)
Voiced by: Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show

The Smurf expy of Tarzan.

  • Always Someone Better: In one episode, he's admired by the other Smurfs for being tough and brave, making Hefty jealous.
  • Canon Immigrant: First appeared in the cartoon before his appearance in the eponymous book.
  • Exposed to the Elements: The most blatant example of this trope: he goes through winter wearing just a loincloth and a hat without even catching a cold.
  • Garden Garment: Wears a Smurf hat made of leaves, and in the comic books started off wearing a bush covering his male parts.
  • Hand Signals: How he communicates with his fellow Smurfs in the cartoon show.
  • Loincloth: He wore leaves until Tailor Smurf made him one.
  • Raised by Wolves: Wild was a Smurf who, upon the night of his "birth" by Delivery Stork, was lost in the forest and raised by squirrels until his public discovery by the Smurfs.
  • The Unintelligible: Wild Smurf can only speak in squirrel chatter in the cartoon show, whereas in the comic books he eventually learned how to speak in Smurf language.
  • Tarzan Boy: Although animalistic in his behaviors, Wild at least knew how to assemble a Smurf hat out of leaves, and in the comic books eventually learned how to speak in very primitive Smurf language when the Smurfs had him stay in the village during the winter.

     Grandpa Smurf 
Grandpa Smurf (Vieux Vieux Schtroumpf)
Voiced by: Jonathan Winters - The Smurfs cartoon show

When Papa Smurf was young, he was also raised by a Papa Smurf, who is now known by the Smurfs as Grandpa Smurf.

  • Canon Foreigner: He did appear in the comics that were issued in the short-lived Schtroumpf! magazine, though.

     Nanny Smurf 
Nanny Smurf (Mémé Schtroumpf)
Voiced by: Susan Blu - The Smurfs cartoon show

The third female Smurf to appear in the cartoon series.

  • Canon Foreigner: She did appear in the comics that were issued in the short-lived Schtroumpf! magazine, though.

     Don Smurfo 
Don Smurfo

The in-universe fictional character Expy of Zorro.

     Schtrumpf Village 
Schtrumpf Village inhabitants
There's a second Village not too far from Smurf Village, led by Papa Smurf's cousin.

  • Bilingual Bonus: As the story was originally written in German, Schtrumpf is a slight alteration of Schlumpf, the German word for Smurf.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The Schtrumpfs can be told apart from their Smurf counterparts by their green costumes. Their leader still wears red, but has a brown beard.
  • Expy: Each Schtrumpf is the counterpart of a Smurf from the Smurfs' Village.

     Mermaid Smurfette 
Mermaid Smurfette (Schtroumpfette Sirène)

Another Smurfette created by Gargamel, but an accident in the formula left her with a fish tail.

  • Born as an Adult: Created as an adult female Smurf by Gargamel, just like Smurfette.
  • Compelling Voice: Gargamel teaches her a song that mermaids can use to attract Smurfs.
  • Dude Magnet: Her second appearance shows that the Smurfs are still infatuated with her, to Smurfette's chagrin.
  • Insubstantial Ingredients: Implied by the fact that it was the same formula that created Smurfette and Sassette.
  • Seashell Bra: Though unlike Ariel's one, hers has the shells downwards instead of sidewards.
  • The Vamp: She uses her attractive looks and hypnotic song to attract the Smurfs.
  • Younger Than They Look: Looks like a young adult Smurfette from the waist up, but has just a little time from her creation.

Catherine Hershey [English dub] - The Smurfs 2021
The leader of Smurfgrove, a village of Smurfettes.

The most hyperactive Smurfette from Smurfgrove.

  • Expy: She's actually closer in personality to the bubbly pre-surgery Smurfette than any adaptation of the actual character.
  • Genki Girl: She is very cheerful, talkative, and always has a smile on her face.
  • Mistaken for Romance: Finds herself in this position with Hefty after Stormy falsely accuses her of having a crush on him.
  • Motor Mouth: She talks a mile a minute.
  • Nice Girl: Probably the nicest smurfette in Smurfgrove. She doesn't seem to have a mean bone in her body and is generally friendly to others.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Always has a smile on her face.

One of the Smurfettes from Smurfgrove.

  • Girlish Pigtails: She wears her hair in four short pigtails, and acts more girly than the others in Smurfgrove.
  • How We Got Here: The comic "A Smurflily Strange World" gives her a Day in the Limelight, explaining how she ended up accidentally crossing under the wall and setting the events of the movie in motion.

The bravest warrior of Smurfgrove.
