Tropes shared by all the girls.

  • Action Girl: A group of fairies who fight evil using their unique magical powers.
  • Aerith and Bob: Some of the girls' names (Stella, Flora, Aisha/Layla, Roxy) are typical and modern, while the other three (Bloom, Musa, Tecna) have names that are more unusual and unique.
  • Alphabetical Theme Naming: Only Bloom's name doesn't rhyme with her friends' names: Flora, Stella, Musa, Tecna, Layla/Aisha.
  • Amazon Brigade: A group of fairies who face evil witches, wizards, and monsters on a daily basis, and beat them all up spectacularly.
  • Badass Adorable: All of them are cute girls who are superpowerful, and kick major ass.
  • Bare Your Midriff: All the girls in both civilian and fairy (with the exception of Tecna) outfits, at least in the earlier seasons. And then the Enchantix went and took the last one who wasn't in a mini-dress, Tecna, and did it to her too.
  • Beauty = Goodness: All the girls are quite the gorgeous beauties, and they fight for the good of Magix.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Magic Winx! [insert fairy form here]!"
  • Calling Your Attacks: They usually say the names of their spells as they use them.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Each girl has a theme color when in their fairy forms:
    • Bloom: Blue
    • Stella: Orange
    • Flora: Pink
    • Musa: Red
    • Tecna: Purple
    • Aisha: Turquoise/Teal
    • Roxy: Green
  • Combat Stilettos: They wear these in their fairy forms and sometimes run while wearing them. Not very often though, because they fly more. They lose them in the third season and wear barefoot sandals. They come back in the fourth season.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Not overtly, but their Enchantix form has them go barefoot (only with strappy, soleless barefoot sandals) and none of them ever complains. It might cross into Magical Barefooter as well.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Bloom, Stella, Aisha, and Roxy are princesses. Tecna is a princess in the comics but never confirmed to be one on the show. Musa is not a princess, but 4Kids called her one, so when her not being a princess became important her dad was stated to be a former prince. Flora is not a princess, despite her saying she is the princess of Linphea in Magical Adventure.
  • Everything's Better with Sparkles: Their clothes and wings in fairy form are coated with masses of sparkles.
  • Fairy Sexy: They're all fairies, and they all look good.
  • Five-Token Band: Bloom is redheaded, Stella is blonde, Flora is Hispanic, Musa is Asian, Aisha is Black, and Tecna is...well, smart? In the 4Kids version, Tecna is British.
  • Flight: In their fairy forms, they gain wings which allow them to fly.
  • Generic Cuteness: All of them are good looking, as is most of Alfea.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Each of them had to experience this in Season 3 to earn their Enchantix. Bloom was the only exception as she earned hers through willpower, rendering it incomplete, but she completes it in the first movie by undergoing a sacrifice of her own.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: In order to get their hips in real life, you need to be missing some ribs.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Bloom, Stella, and Flora have long hair and are quite feminine.
  • Magical Girl Warrior: They are part of an academy of these. They get several sets of transformation sequences of course.
  • Meaningful Name: Stella, Flora, Musa, and Tecna have names that reflect their power sources.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: Each season features them ditching their current fairy form for a new one that's higher and stronger. The only exception was Charmix, which was a brief upgrade to the first fairy form.
  • Minidress of Power: Some of their fairy forms are short and grant them extra powers.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: Of the three main Winx, Flora is nice (the sweet Friend to All Living Things), Stella is mean (the selfish Attention Whore), and Bloom is in-between (fairly nice but occasionally impulsive and stubborn).
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: According to Iginio Straffi, their appearances were inspired by Britney Spears (Bloom), Cameron Diaz (Stella), Jennifer Lopez (Flora), Lucy Liu (Musa), Beyoncé (Aisha), and P!nk (Tecna).
  • Only One Name: None of them have a last name.
  • Only Six Faces: Their CGI appearances in Seasons 5 and 6 and their Season 8-present designs have virtually the same facemolds.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair:
    • In Enchantix form, their hair either changes its hue or gains streaks.
    • In Sirenix form, their hair changes color when underwater.
    • Also happens to a lesser extent in Tynix form.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Their hair tends to increase in length in some of their fairy forms.
  • Rapunzel Hair: With the exception of Tecna and initially Musa, all the Winx members have flowing hair. In the beginning it used to be at the hips, but then increased to the knees when in a transformation of Enchantix or above, as well as in later seasons. Tecna is the exception, as her hair goes shoulder length at the longest.
  • Second Episode Introduction: Flora, Musa and Tecna don't appear until the second episode, "Welcome to Magix!". Aisha doesn't appear until the season 2 opener, and Roxy doesn't appear until season 4.
  • Series Goal: To protect Alfea and to defeat the Arc Villain of each season. To do so, they must earn a new transformation for each one.
  • Stripperific:
    • Some of the girls' outfits fall under this, especially the Enchantix costumes. Oddly, season four's Believix costumes cover more, but some of the girl's casual clothes are quite risque. And then, in the second half of the same season, the Sophix transformation gives them more revealing outfits once again. Just look at Flora. Her top looks like a couple of leaves sewn together, and it's backless! And the only thing holding down Aisha's miniskirt is magic. Averted with Musa, whose Sophix covers more than any of their other outfits (interestingly, despite her Enchantix being the most revealing).
    • Most noticeable with Tecna, since she started with a bodysuit that covered everything, and her costumes have gotten skimpier ever since. They have also gotten less technological looking, which is odd since her element is supposed to be technology. The Sophix even has flowers on it! This might be a hint towards the fact that she has gotten in touch with her emotions and depends far less on technology as time progresses.
    • Stella's first "everyday" outfit (Season One and at least half of Season Two) was worse. Her skirt was just barely long enough to cover her crotch, and her shirt looked like a bikini top with a collar, albeit one that had torn and needed to be tied together to keep her breasts from showing (since there was really no way she was hiding a bra underneath it). And this was something she wore at some point in almost every episode too. It's a miracle that outfit, even by Italian standards, didn't get the show cancelled then and there. An even bigger wonder is that 4Kids did not digitally censor it. Apparently, the artists eventually realized this because every main outfit for Stella afterwards up until season six was a mini-dress. Now, in season six, her main outfit is a skirt, seemingly only to fit in with the "school uniform" style.
    • Later seasons tone this down, as the characters wear more modest clothing.
  • Transformation Name Announcement:
    • "Bloom, Fairy of the Dragon Flame!"
    • "Stella, Fairy of the Shining Sun!"
    • "Flora, Fairy of Nature!"
    • "Musa, Fairy of Music!"
    • "Tecna, Fairy of Technology!"
    • "Aisha, Fairy of Waves!"
    • "Roxy, Fairy of Animals!"
  • Town Girls: Musa and Aisha are Butch, Flora and Stella are Femme and Bloom and Tecna are Neither.
  • Winged Humanoid: In their fairy forms.

Played by: Abigail Cowen in Fate: The Winx Club Saga

Bloom is the Fairy of the Dragon Flame, from the planet of Domino. She begins the series as a new student attending the Alfea College for Fairies. After saving Stella from an ogre attack on Earth, Stella realized that Bloom had magical powers and took her to Alfea in the realm of Magix.

For the first few seasons, Bloom is essentially the newbie fairy, learning to use her powers. Bloom also wishes to know where she's from. While she has nice adoptive parents on Earth, she soon discovers that she wasn't born there.

  • 10-Minute Retirement: When she leaves Magix upon learning Sky switched his identity with Brandon and is engaged with Diaspro. She returns when the Trix follow her home and steal the Dragon Flame and Stella comes to help.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Early seasons implied Bloom was this in Gardenia, though later seasons seemed to have retconned this (she has an ex-boyfriend; she was also apparently friends with Selina).
  • Aside Glance: When Bloom first enters the vicinity of Alfea, she turns and smiles at the camera.
  • Aura Vision: In the first season, Bloom discovers that, when she's on Earth, she can see people's auras. This power was shown again in an episode of season two, but it seems that the writers forgot that she had this power in season four...
  • Blue Is Heroic: A variation. Most of her fairy forms are primarily light blue. However, Bloom has fire-powers, so red is also her color. This contrasts with her Elemental Rivalry with Icy, one her most persistent enemies, who has ice-powers and wears a dark blue outfit.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: When Darkar captures her and infuses her with Dark Energy. As Dark Bloom she becomes heartless, abusive, unwilling, mean, selfish, manipulative, mischievous, cruel, and uncaring. Sky manages to bring her back.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In World of Winx, when Bloom is taken into custody and interrogated by two detectives who suspect her and her friends for being involved with Anna's kidnapping. Bloom freezes the scene and addresses the camera, sarcastically commenting that she COULD tell them the truth that magical beings kidnapped Anna and that she and the Winx are actually fairies, but that would be a stupid thing to do since it would blow their cover.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Temporarily. Even though she lost her powers in episodes 19-24, she's still tough.
  • Changeling Fantasy: Her Earth parents are quickly revealed to be foster parents. Her biological parents are from another planet.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Is this towards Sky. In season 2 during the Pixie rescue mission, Bloom was annoyed when Aisha hugs Sky after he freed her from webbing on a wall. Then she tried to one-up on Aisha during the sand dune sliding scene and fails miserably.
  • Cool Big Sis: Is this to Roxy, who quickly bonds with her due to their shared backgrounds and experiences. Roxy very much looks up to and considers Bloom her big sister, despite the two not being biologically related.
  • Crucified Hero Shot: Icy freezes Bloom in this position after the latter saves Mike and Vanessa from being sucked into oblivion.
  • Elemental Absorption: She can absorb fire.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Deconstructed, Bloom is revealed to be the princess of Domino at the end of season 1, but the planet was laid to waste by the ancestral witches, the entire population was cursed to a Fate Worse than Death and her sister was murdered to protect her. Finding this out crushed Bloom. Reconstructed in Secret of the Lost Kingdom when the curse on her kingdom is broken and her parents are brought back.
  • Evil Makeover: As Dark Bloom under Darkar's control. The colors of her outfit, her wings, tiara and accessory becomes a lot more dark, sharp and aggressive.
  • Fallen Princess: She was born a Princess but had to live as a normal Earth girl when her family's kingdom fell.
  • Fiery Redhead: Literally! Red hair and Dragon Flame!
  • Forgot About His Powers: Apparently, Bloom forgot she had healing powers in S4 episode 24. Sure, it might not have worked under those circumstances, but she could at least have tried to save Nabu.
  • Glowing Eyes: Bloom's Dragon Flame powers manifest this way.
  • Happily Adopted: She loves her adopted parents very much, even after she starts to concentrate on finding her birth parents.
  • Harmless Freezing: Has been frozen solid or imprisoned in ice in a few occasions but always escapes unharmed.
  • Healing Hands: Gains these in season 2, and it's vital when several of her friends are wounded by her Brainwashed and Crazy self (including Riven, who almost dies), and the first thing she does when she returns to the side of good is healing them all.
  • Hot for Teacher: In season 2, Bloom developed a crush on the new Alfea teacher Professor Avalon (who was actually fake Avalon at the time).
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although at a lesser extent than Stella, Bloom can be a bit of a brat or act rather self-centered at times, but she is absolutely loyal to her friends and loved ones.
  • Last of Her Kind: She's the last surviving person of the planet Domino after it was destroyed by the Ancestral Witches. After it's restoration in The Secret of the Lost Kingdom, this no longer applies.
  • The Leader: Of the Winx Club.
  • MacGuffin Super Person: She has the mythical Dragon Flame power and the Trix's target in Season 1 is steal this power. They managed to "steal" the Dragon Flame until Bloom, with Daphne's help, realized that she had never lost her powers, but was unable to use them because of her doubts, and therefore regained her powers and defeated the Trix.
  • Meaningful Name: While her name has no reference to her power source, it could mean she's a "late bloomer" and forgot about her powers since her adoption. She eventually came to realize them and search for her birth family, which shows she's literally "blooming" into her true self.
  • The Mentor: Becomes this to Roxy in season 4. "Roxy, you're doing great! I'm so proud of you!" She's ideal for this role because she was in Roxy's shoes during Season 1, though her situation was slightly different.
  • Modest Royalty: She's far more comfortable being a regular girl than being a princess. Justified, as she was raised as a regular girl and didn't even know she was a princess until later.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: Bloom was discovered on Earth in a burning building by a human firefighter named Mike, who later adopted and raised her along with his wife Vanessa. She proceeded to have a loving albeit uneventful childhood, unaware of her abilities or true origins, until a chance encounter with Stella triggered a Call to Adventure and set the events of the series in motion.
  • Nice Girl: Not close to Flora's kindness but she's still very kind, caring, selfless and brave for her friends, families and allies. She's willing to help everyone along her way, even evil people, who she is quick to forgive.
  • Naïve Newcomer: In season 1 she was a relatable Naïve Everygirl who was insecure about her new powers.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Bloom sees herself as this in season 6 when she allowed Selina to come into the hidden greenhouse, unaware of her friend's alignment as a witch. She became deeply traumatized when she realized that she almost killed Flora with a poison given to her by Selina.
  • Odd Name Out: Out of the original five girls, Bloom's is the only name that isn't based on her power source and doesn't end with an "a."
  • Official Couple: With Sky. They start dating early in season 1, though Bloom is reluctant to admit her feelings at first. The two almost break up when Sky's true identity and engagement to Diaspro is revealed, but they patch their relationship back together. They continue to have trouble with Sky being jealous of Avalon and Andy while Bloom is concerned about Sky and Diaspro's past, but they stick together and Sky eventually proposes to her, which she accepts.
  • Official Couple Ordeal Syndrome: Happens at least once or twice every season. So far she and Sky have been through breakups, jealousy, fake identities, brainwashing, jealous and homicidal exes, amnesia angst, and other minor fights and disagreements in-between the big ones.
  • Playing with Fire: Bloom has fire-based powers that can manifest in the form of fire dragons, fireballs, fire beams, firestorms and explosions of varying intensities.
  • Powers in the First Episode: Unaware of her fairy identity since being adopted, she finally unleashes her powers while trying to save Stella from Knut.
  • The Protagonist: Main character and the story typically follows her.
  • Rags to Royalty: The Sleeping Beauty type. She was forced into hiding at birth and forgot about her true heritage while growing up. She came to realize by the end of the first season.
  • Really Royalty Reveal: Bloom is revealed to be the princess of Domino at the end of season 1.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: When the group was formed, she had almost no experience at using magic and/or fighting witches and monsters, unlike the other four, and was more liability than help. She got better as the season went by.
  • Series Goal: From Seasons 1-3: To find her birth parents. She finishes her quest in the first movie.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Does this to Valtor in the season 3 finale.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Gains these when Darker turns her into Dark Bloom.
  • True Blue Femininity: Many of her fairy forms are primarily blue. This also applies to most of her civilian outfits with the notable exception being her season 6 outfit, which is mainly pink.

Played by: Hannah van der Westhuysen in Fate: The Winx Club Saga

Stella is the princess of Solaria, a place she speaks highly of. She is considered a delinquent at Alfea for her antics, which is why she's a year older than her class. Because she's so self-conscious about her physical appearance, Stella may come off as being vain, but still cares deeply about her friends. Her powers come from the sun and the moon.

  • Action Fashionista: She has a very large wardrobe selection, though it's not typically worn in battle.
  • Attention Whore: She absolutely loves the limelight and craves praise. In season 5, she fakes an emergency call to get her boyfriend to rush for the sake of seeing her makeshift fashion show, and she doesn't understand when Brandon and her friends get ticked off with her for it.
  • Beta Couple: With Brandon. They start dating early in season 1 when she's under the impression that he's Prince Sky. When his true identity is revealed, she's initially angry, but they make up and Stella doesn't mind him not being a prince. (She was more angry about being deceived.) From then on they hold a fairly steady relationship, even when other ladies like Amentia and Mitzi throw themselves at Brandon.
  • Berserk Button: Expect a minor tantrum if you mess up her hair or clothes or interrupt her when she's getting dolled up.
  • Big Eater: By far, Stella has the healthiest appetite of the Winx.
  • Book Dumb: She's an idiot in school, hates studying, and tends to have the lowest grades (and was Held Back in School at least once), but she's perfectly knowledgeable on plenty of things when not in school.
  • Broken Bird: Stella hides it well, but she's been secretly hurting about her parents' divorce. She had made it one of her goals in life to bring them back together again.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: In Season 4 Mitzi gets a crush on Brandon and is determined to make him hers. This infuriates Stella and causes her to constantly question Brandon's loyalty since Mitzi constantly follows him around. Is a straighter example in the comics.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Not a moron by any means, but she can sometimes make those around her wonder what goes on in that head of hers. But if any of her friends or loved ones end up in danger, she'll be the first ready to spring into action and she will kick someone's ass.
    • The first time Bloom was forcibly turned into Dark Bloom, she easily shrugged off the best shots of Flora, Musa, and Aisha. Then, Stella attacked... And that hurt, even with a near miss. Stella's comments a moment later implied she missed willingly because a bullseye could have disintegrated Dark Bloom. And it was before any power-up.
    • A number of episodes highlight this trope for Stella, such as Shimmer in the Shadows of season six, where Stella's ditziness protects her and enables her to be the one to rescue her friends.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Her blonde hair matches her hazel-gold eyes.
  • Drama Queen: There are times when Stella gets overly upset at the most trivial of things.
  • Drives Like Crazy: In season 4, Stella drives an RV quite recklessly, almost getting into accidents several times. The other girls immediately demand for her to relinquish the wheel to Aisha.
  • Dumb Blonde: Although not particulary stupid, Stella shows to be really thick at times, and it is mentioned several times that she always gets the lower grades at school. It's implied that this is more due to her not taking her schoolwork seriously rather than that she doesn't know it.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: She's the princess of Solaria.
  • The Fashionista: She has a large selection of clothes, and she often designs various new clothes for herself and her friends. By season 5, she's decided that she wants to become a fashion designer.
  • Flanderization: While Stella was always a bit vain, in the earlier seasons, she usually learned her lesson and did mature a little as time went on. Season five seems to have not only erased that maturity, but upped her childishness to eleven, with her throwing actual tantrums over not getting her way. Also, see Attention Whore above.
  • Freudian Excuse: As a little child, she had to wear braces and was ridiculed by other kids. That drove her into her current obsession over physical appearance. In an episode of the first season, she said her parents didn't pay much attention to her unless she brought home a bad report card. That might explain why she's such an Attention Whore at times.
  • The Glomp: Usually to Brandon when she is happy.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's got long blond hair, and she's very sweet and nice most of the time, though she can occasionally be a brat.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Stella is vain, and often selfish and egocentric. Clothes and beauty are of utmost importance to her, and she gets upset when someone ruins her clothes, or hair, or physical appearance in any way, and she became Brandon's girlfriend because she thought he was a prince. However, Stella has risked her life many times when her friends, family or boyfriend were in trouble, and remained faithful to Brandon after finding out that he wasn't a prince at all - she was more pissed off about him lying to her than not being of Royal Blood.
  • The Lancer: She's Bloom's best friend, and she supports her the most out of the whole club.
  • Light 'em Up: Her powers come from the sun (mostly) and her attacks consist of casting beams of light. She can also concentrate her energy to make herself glow brightly in dark places. Stella can create streaks of solar energy and is able to create explosions of sunlight that can leave the opponent temporarily blind. She can shape sunlight into barriers and shields, which is extremely useful. She can conjure light in any area, no matter how dark.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: A spoiled popular girl who tends to be self-centered and a Proud Beauty, but ultimately a good-natured person who cares about her friends.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother is only seen once in the entire show (during a dream), despite a whole divorce/remarriage plot in Season 3. She finally appeared in Season 5 as a recurring character.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Downplayed due to the all-ages nature of the franchise, but present in the early season where she wears many skimpy outfit (see Stripperific above) and is very flirty. Plus, in a Beach Episode of Season 2 she wear a lifeguard red costume for no reason other Fanservice.
  • The Power of the Sun: Due to Stella being from Solaria, she is majorly affected by the Sun. She gains her energy from the sun and is heavily weakened when in very dark places or underground.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The bubbly Energetic Girl to Brandon's calm and collected Savvy Guy.
  • Skewed Priorities: Stella is sometimes far more concerned with shopping and fashion over saving the world; she opted to go shopping first before going on their actual mission.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She's very rich and popular amongst her people. She's also a real sweetie towards her friends. Even in her worst moods she never belittles others for not being royalty.
  • Stellar Name: Also a Meaningful Name: Stella means Star, and Stella's power comes from the sun, which is a star.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Has gold eyes which represents she's a stellar fairy.
  • Uncle Pennybags: For all her flaws, Stella can prove to be exceedingly generous with no ulterior motive and this is shown early on. The third episode of the series has her eager to take Bloom on a shopping spree for a dress for the school dance after Bloom mentioned she didn't have one (Bloom didn't ask Stella to do this or imply the request). Stella was also about to pay for the dress Bloom chose until Flora told Stella not to, reasoning she may make Bloom feel bad about buying something so expensive for someone who is still new to them and vice versa. For an example not about money, look no further than the first episode, where Stella eagerly and almost immediately encourages Bloom to attend Alfea with her. Again, no motive beyond generosity toward her new friend.
  • Uptown Girl: To Brandon. She is the princess of Solaria while Brandon is a squire. Brandon fell into the trope during the royal part where Princess Stella was to be introduced into society. He was afraid his gift to her had no chance against the ones she'd get from nobles, but in reality she was angrier for him lying to her than his lower origins.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?:
    • Stella's powers comes from the sun and the moon. However, she only used moon-based powers twice during the whole series. This becomes so egregious that the Nickelodeon dub cuts out ANY relation between her and the moon; she announces herself as "Stella, Fairy of the Shining Sun."
    • Stella initially has the Ring of Solaria which conveniently transforms into a magical scepter when needed. This ring allows her to focus on her energy or teleport people. After the sixth episode, in which she takes the ring back from the Trix, who stole it in the previous episode, the ring has only made a handful of appearances since and has no longer been seen to be used by her after she gained her Enchantix.

Flora is the Fairy of Nature. Her powers come from plants and nature in general. Flora is very kind, gentle, sweet, and mature. She is able to keep her head on her shoulders in a crisis, and is not one to panic. She is known as the goody two-shoes of the group, a position she likes having.

  • Alone Among the Couples: In season 1 she's the only one of the girls who doesn't get a Love Interest. Her boyfriend Helia is introduced in season 2.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Is extremely embarrassed at her parents' antics when introducing them to her friends in season 7.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Flora can be mistaken for either a light skinned Black or a very tanned Caucasian, but the creator confirms she was based on Jennifer Lopez, so she is meant to be Hispanic.
  • Badass Adorable: She's cute and is vulnerable to panicking a lot, but she's just as effective at fighting as the rest of the Winx are.
  • Beta Couple: With Helia. Flora gets a crush on him when they first meet, but takes awhile to reveal her feelings to him. Once she works up the courage to confess to him at the end of season 2, they immediately start dating and seem to have little to no problems in their relationship.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's kind of shy and the gentlest of the Winx, but push her too far and she will prove just how hard nature is.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Flora became pissed when Miele is hit by a spell from the Trix and immediately gives them a well-deserved magic attack. Also, the reason she gained her Enchantrix in the first place was because she was willing to give up her life to save her little sister's.
  • Blow You Away: She has shown developed abilities of generate blast/streams of wind.
  • Brainy Brunette: It's mentioned she's a pretty good student.
  • Butt-Monkey: While officially the second most powerful of the group, Flora could actually be argued to be one of the weaker fairies, as she usually gets injured/knocked out the most.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Has trouble building up the confidence to confess her feelings to Helia until the end of season 2.
  • The Chick: She's the conscience of the team and is usually the one to stop the others from doing something bad.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Not that she'll even act upon it, but it's there. She's notably uncomfortable when Crystal gets a bit too close to Helia.
  • Closer to Earth: Flora is the most mature member of the Winx as she possesses a deep sense of love, peace, happiness, and tranquility. She gives out good advice to others and avoids violence as the first answer.
  • Cool Big Sis: She has a younger sister, Miele, who adores her.
  • Damsel in Distress: She tends to be the fairy most often injured, knocked out, and/or captured by the Monster of the Week.
  • Friend to All Living Things: While she's closer to plants, she has a connection with animals as well and treats them all well.
  • Green Thumb: Flora, as the Fairy of Nature, can talk to plants, bring them to life, help them grow, and nurture them when they are sick. She controls plants and many of her attacks involve wrapping her opponents with vines.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: The first episode of season five shows that she is insecure about her abilities as a fairy.
  • Hypocrite: In what's arguably an Out of Character moment, an episode of season 7 has her forbidding Miele to join the group on a mission and saying "a fairy needs to know her place" because of a battle Miele struggled with early in season 6. The problem here is Flora has been knocked down and out a number of times herself, and that very thing had happened to her just four episodes ago. When Miele tags along anyway, Flora scolds her for being "hasty and reckless", once again ignoring she's guilty of the same thing as recently as late season 6. Implying even more how it's out of character is the reaction of the other Winx. They look shocked Flora is talking like that to her sister.
  • Informed Attribute: Per Word of God, she's the 2nd most powerful of the group, second only to Bloom. That being said, the fact the she's the most likely fairy to be injured, knocked out, and/or captured makes her appear to instead be one of the weakest of the group.
  • Martial Pacifist: Since Flora dislikes aggression, she usually uses her powers in battle for defense and constriction. For example, she would trap an enemy in vines while another member of the Winx Club would destroy the enemy.
  • Nice Girl: Probably the nicest one of the group.
  • Palette Swap: With Bloom. At least the hair.
  • Petal Power: Normally she prefers the use of vine whips to wrap around her opponents and immobilize them. Even so, she has been shown using beams and attacks made of petals (or whole flowers), particularly in the later seasons and the movies.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Most of her fairy forms are primarily pink.
  • Second Episode Introduction: She makes her debut along with Tecna and Musa in the second episode.
  • Sexy Cat Person: In the fourth season, her Love and Pet uniform is a Fanservice with a Smile sexy cat costume.
  • Sexy Silhouette: In season 2 an episode has, in shadow, Flora showering. In the censored version, 4Kids flattens her chest.
  • Shrinking Violet: While not that reserved, she was very shy when she had a crush on Helia and was reluctant to confess her feelings.
  • Supreme Chef: World of Winx reveals that she's a very talented cook.
  • Taken for Granite: She was once turned into a statue by a mutated jellyfish which was turned by Tritannus.
  • Team Mom: Whenever the Winx are fighting amongst themselves, she does her best to stop the fighting.
  • Token Minority: She's reportedly Hispanic. An interview with the creator of the series confirms that she's based upon Jennifer Lopez. Which is odd, considering her little sister has fair skin and red hair.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Downplayed, but in season 7, she's noticeably snarkier and has an unexplained short temper with Helia and Amarok. Also, the aforementioned Hypocrite example, where she talks down to her sister instead of tactfully expressing her worry, nor does she acknowledge Miele genuinely saved the group's lives when she came along anyway. Thankfully, this seemed to end by the latter half of the season.
  • Tranquil Fury: In season 6, Flora became enraged when Icy kidnapped Helia and froze him over, then in the rematch, she single-handedly curbstomped the witch after borrowing power from the nature around her.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Messing with Helia will result in a Tranquil Fury mode Flora who will own you.

Musa is the Fairy of Music. She puts up a tough front in front of others, but deep down, she tends to be the most sensitive of the Winx girls, and gets emotional the most easily. Part of that may be due to her sad family life. Musa's mother had died, and her father is often away doing tours, not having much time for his daughter, leaving Musa feeling lonely.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: She has a crush on Riven despite his really bad attitude. When they get together he softens up a little bit.
  • Alone Among the Couples: After season 6 and her break-up with Riven, she's the only one of the group without a boyfriend.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Riven. She's crushing on him early in season 1, but he doesn't reciprocate and instead dates Darcy. During season 2 they start to get closer, especially at the Red Fountain Concert and in the Wildlands. Riven eventually gains feelings for Musa, and they start dating at the end of season 2, and Riven is seriously injured by Dark Bloom specifically because he went Taking the Bullet for her. They have a lot of arguments however and broke up once when Riven thought Musa was getting too close to Jason Queen. Riven regrets breaking up and manages to win her back over, but their relationship remained unstable, and they broke up permanently in season 6.
  • Beta Couple: With Riven until season 6.
  • The Big Girl: Her sound based powers are very destructive and hard hitting.
  • Boyish Short Hair: She is an actual tomboy and also has short hair to start with but wears it long for good later on.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Her bluish eyes match her bluish hair.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She's very snide at times, especially towards Stella.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Her hair is much longer from the third season on.
  • Girliness Upgrade: As illustrated here. Back in season one, she was known as a tomboy that barely wore skirts. Even in the welcoming ball, she would an outfit that had pants. She was basically designed to look a little street-smart with her overly large jeans and sneakers. Once season three started, she immediately got longer hair, but kept the pigtails. Then season four came along and Musa arrived on Earth where she let her hair down and started wearing heels and a skirt for her normal outfit. Musa became girlier by asking questions about her hair and she became another point of drama for the series again when Musa gains the opportunity to become famous.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Inverted. She has pigtails in seasons 1-3, as part of her tomboyish look. She lost them in season 4 after her Girliness Upgrade.
  • Hidden Depths: A flyaway comment by one of the girls in Season 1 mentions that Musa gets very good grades, just like Flora (Tecna is not mentioned in that scene, despite her being The Smart Girl of the group).
  • Important Haircut: Inverted in season 3, where she gets an important hair GROWTH
  • Magic Music: As the fairy of music, her spells often involve music a lot. Her attacks are based on music and sound. She usually uses attacks that are disco themed and can create disco-ball force-fields, distracting musical blasts, and virtual speakers which enclose around an enemy and immobilize them through incredibly loud bass music. Musa can also create walls and barriers of the musical scale and explosive musical notes.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Musa's powers are connected not just with music but the actual power of sound waves and sonic pressure. She can manipulate other elements by creating sonic booms which cause rumbling and things to crash. She can also create sonic vibes and pulses which charge through the air like energy blasts.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother died when Musa was young, and this is quite the friction point with her father.
  • Red Is Heroic: Most of her fairy forms are primarily hot pink or red.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Aisha in Season 2. The two girls form a bond thanks to their common interest in the music.
  • Second Episode Introduction: She makes her debut along with Flora and Tecna in the second episode.
  • Taking the Bullet: Musa does this in Season 5 when Tritannus attempts to put a curse on Aisha, and is as a result transformed into some sort of mutant monster seal.
  • Token Minority: Despite the fact she isn't even from Earth, Musa's facial features and sometimes her clothes suggest that she's Asian. The supporting cast does feature several other Asian characters such as Jared of season 2, and Word of God states that she's based upon Lucy Liu.
  • Tomboy: In the early seasons she is the most tomboyish of the Winx Club.
  • Totally Radical: In Season 1 of 4Kids dub, Musa seemed addicted to slang. Her use of it gradually toned down in S2.
  • Tsundere: She flip flops between with being sweet with Riven and fighting with him all the time.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: The sight of Darcy multiplying around her will terrify Musa into helplessness. Justified by the trauma of what happened the first time, namely Darcy mind-raping her nearly to death.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has blackish blue hair.

Tecna is the Fairy of Technology, with powers that come from computers and technology in general. Tecna is highly intelligent. Like any good nerd, Tecna thoroughly enjoys math and science. She spends a lot of time doing things on her computer. As intelligent as she is, though, she does not always understand non-technical things, like manual labor. Some of the simplest things, like brooms and buckets, are completely foreign to Tecna.

Tecna is not very good at expressing emotions. She looks for logic behind everything and is not good at understanding emotional-based decisions. She also does not outwardly show a lot of concern for her friends, though deep down, she truly cares for them all and would do anything to help.

  • Accent Adaptation: In the 4Kids dub, she gained a British accent.
  • Adapted Out: Has seemingly been excised from the Live-Action Adaptation.
  • Badass Bookworm: She spends a lot of time researching her next assignment or how to complete the Winx's next goal, and she is plenty capable of handling herself on the field.
  • Barrier Warrior: While all of the girls can create barriers for defense, Tecna is the one most often seen using shields to defend herself and others.
  • Beta Couple: With Timmy. Both are awkward at expressing their feelings, but they fall for each other and are officially dating by season 2. Tecna breaks up with him when she thinks Timmy is an incompetent coward who doesn't understand her, but Timmy proves himself and they get back together. They hold a steady relationship afterwards, though they prefer to communicate through electronics.
  • Boyish Shorthair: Tecna's original hair and some styles she gets later on, though she's not that tomboyish. After Musa grew out her hair in Season 3, Tecna is now the only member of the Winx with short hair.
  • Broken Pedestal: As quoted above, in season 2, Tecna breaks up with Timmy calling him a coward when, in an occasion, he let escape the Trix because if he had attacked them, they would overpower everyone. But they made up when Timmy came up with many plans to defeat the Trix risking also his life.
  • Character Development: Tecna has trouble expressing her emotions, and bases the majority of her decisions on pure logic, though in the second and third season, she gets over that trouble and is more open and friendly toward her friends. This before her Flanderization.
  • Covert Pervert: She created a virtual simulation for herself where she could have some "unique" experiences with Timmy. Notable because earlier she barely understood what dating was.
  • Cyborg: Word of Dante, surprisingly not Jossed, though there is little in show evidence for it, with the biggest evidence being that she didn't succumb to the sleeping gas given off by the Black Willow as quickly as the other girls.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sometimes.
  • Disney Death: In the middle of season 3, she was trapped in the Omega Dimension after saving Andros from being destroyed and thought gone by everyone (except Timmy). Thankfully, she managed to survive long enough to get a message out to the others, enabling the others to find and rescue her.
  • Ditzy Genius: Tecna may understand everything to do with technology, but knows nothing about non-technical things. She once thought a bucket was to be worn on her head and a broom could be used as a portrait feather duster.
  • Emotionless Girl: She was forced to give up her emotions for technology while in the Crystal Labyrinth. She gets them back in the end.
  • Flanderization: In seasons 5 and 6, she's been reverted to her season 1 personality, effectively undoing all the Character Development she's gotten over the series.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: She's built plenty of technological things, including an inter-dimensional transporter and a barrier buster to get through the barrier around Alfea.
  • Gamer Chick: As the fairy of technology, she loves computers and video games.
  • Girliness Upgrade: Like Musa, she used to have a boyish look in early seasons, but as the show starts changing art style, she gets a much more soft and feminine appearance. By season 8, she even wears a bow in her hair.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Despite being the "nerd" of the group, she has an attractive Fairy Sexy design just like the other girls.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Timmy thinks she's beautiful.
  • Odd Friendship:
    • Tecna and her best friend, Musa. Tecna is logical, rational and doesn't make a move without careful calculation, while Musa is more free-spirited and spontaneous.
    • Her friendship with Aisha in the spinoff World of Winx can also be seen as this. Tecna is technologically savvy but not necessarily sports inclined, while Aisha is the complete opposite. What's more, the banter the two often engage in (often over the effectiveness of Tecna's technological devices) also gives their relationship a Vitriolic Best Buds vibe.
  • Out of Focus: Of the main fairies, Tecna easily gets the least focus and development, especially in Season 4. Sometimes it feels like she's a minor character rather than one of the main ones.
  • Pair the Smart Ones: With Timmy.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Many of her fairy forms are predominantly various shades of purple.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Played with, as she's much more logical and "by the numbers" than most examples.
  • Second Episode Introduction: She makes her debut along with Flora and Musa in the second episode.
  • Shock and Awe: Her powers are entirely based on technology and digital energy, but, on occasion, she has been known to control electricity.
  • The Smart Girl: As the science expert of the group, the team relies on Tecna to solve any technological issues, whether magical, supernatural or ordinary.
  • The Spock: She prefers to think before doing something rash.
  • Technopath: She can directly control some technology, such as when she mentally commanded the ship in The Secret of the Lost Kingdom.
  • Teen Genius: Tecna is extremely smart, with an IQ of 150, and loves technology.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has magenta colored, asymmetrical bob-styled, hair.

Played by: Precious Mustapha in Fate: The Winx Club Saga

Aisha (called Layla in all third-party dubs) is the princess of Andros. She has the ability to rearrange a substance called Morphix (sometimes referred to as plasma) into all sorts of objects and weapons.

In the original version, Aisha is extremely opinionated and open-minded. In her early appearances, she is rather distant towards romance and males. It's later discovered she was arranged to be married, which possibly contributes to her wariness of romance.

She is quite athletic and is also a linguist. Her bold personality causes her take more independent actions, so she often doesn't ask for help. She has proven to be just as skilled as the Specialists when it comes to fighting.

  • Alone Among the Couples: In season 2, she's the only one of the girls without a Love Interest. Her first boyfriend, Nabu, is introduced in season 3.
  • Beta Couple:
    • With Nabu. He approaches her under a false name because he wants to know the girl he's betrothed to. After Nabu assists her several times, they start dating, and Nabu is forced to reveal his true identity, but she doesn't mind. They get along very well, culminating with Nabu proposing to Aisha, who eagerly says yes. Unfortunately for her, he died soon after.
    • With Nex, as of season seven. He is introduced early in season six. Aisha doesn't like him at first, and she's also being pursued by Roy at the time. But she and Nex grow closer throughout the season, bonding due to their similar personalities and interest in sports. They confess their feelings for each other near the end of the season, then start dating in season seven.
  • The Big Girl: One of the Winx's best fighters, and she gets a lot more physical with her opponents than the other girls do.
  • Dub Name Change: Layla. This one isn't really 4Kids fault, as all dubs of the show excluding Nick's change it to Layla.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: She's the princess of Andros.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She joins in with Nebula's group to kill the Wizard of the Black Circle and avenge Nabu's death. It didn't last long, though it was still pretty shocking.
  • Girliness Upgrade: Similarly to Musa, she was more of a sporty tomboy initially, but in later seasons she starts wearing more makeup, dresses, and girly accessories like the other girls.
  • Her Heart Will Go On: Nope, sorry. Nabu doesn't come back to life at the end of Season 4. She's still mourning him during season 5.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Now she's one of the main characters, but is only introduced in season 2.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: As a princess, she had a very isolated childhood and did not have many friends growing up.
  • Making a Splash:
    • Subverted. While Aisha comes from an ocean-based realm, and seems connected to water, her powers come from plasma, which appears in the show to be shiny, pink clay. This is very evident in the 4th season when, twice, the girls had to stop a housefire and Aisha could not use her powers to douse it. Her Sophix seems to give her this power, though.
    • Played straight in season 7, which sees her manipulate water on at least two occasions.
    • Equally played straight in World of Winx.
  • Morality Pet: To Nex.
  • Odd Name Out: Like Bloom, her name isn't based on her power source. Justified since she's the Sixth Ranger introduced in season 2.
  • Perfectly Arranged Marriage: Her parents arrange to marry Nabu, even though she's never even met him and is vehemently opposed to the marriage. When she meets Nabu under the disguise of Ophir, the two fall in love, though the parents decide to cancel the marriage anyway. And then he dies.
  • Prophet Eyes: She gets these as a result of Valtor making her blind.
  • Rebellious Princess: She hated the strict rules she had to follow as a princess, and avoided going back to Andros for as long as possible until Valtor attacked.
  • Revenge Before Reason: After Nabu's death, she's willing to do almost anything to get revenge on the Wizards of the Black Circle, including going through a teaming up with a volatile Nebula, imprisoning Morgana, and fighting her friends.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Musa in Season 2. The two girls form a bond thanks to their common interest in the music.
  • Sixth Ranger: She doesn't appear or join the club until season 2.
  • Token Good Teammate: After her Face–Heel Turn, she is the Only Sane Man of Nebula's group. She makes clear in no uncertain terms that her beef is with Wizards of the Black Circle, and not humanity itself.
  • Token Minority: She's the only black fairy amongst the main girls, not so in the supplementary cast.
  • Tomboy: Very much so, shown in series to be far more athletic than the other girls.
  • Tomboy Princess: She doesn't want to be a traditional girl princess, and it's implied it's part of her rebellion against her traditionalist upbringing.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She likes dancing and finds the Fairy Pets adorable.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Kind of, with Stella, as they are both princesses with opposing personalities.

Roxy is the last fairy on Earth and the focus of the fourth season. She has power over animals, able to sense when they are in danger and heal them. She occasionally joins the group after season four, but does not appear in every episode like the other fairies. In season 7, she has a heightened role as the group's Mission Control.

All three of the show's production companies — Rainbow, Rai, and Nickelodeon — refer to her as the seventh member to join the Winx Club. As noted below, the original plan for season five featured her as a permanent and active member of the Club, but she became less of a regular character after the season was retooled.

  • Adapted Out: Seemingly won't appear in the Live-Action Adaptation, since it's (supposedly) a retelling of the first three seasons.
  • Bare Your Midriff: With both her civilian and fairy outfits.
  • The Beastmaster: She has the power over animals. She can feel what they feel, possessing a form of empathy towards them, and can calm them down if they're scared, hurt, or angry. World of Winx also shows that she can use them to spy.
  • Damsel in Distress: When the Wizards of the Black Circle come after Roxy, the other fairies regularly come to her rescue since she has no powers. Even after she gains the ability to transform, she keeps needing the other Winx to save her, as she's easily overpowered (in the comics, a witch knocks her out in just one punch).
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • During seasons five and six. The scrapped original description (search "seven") for season 5, written before Nickelodeon joined as a co-producer, indicated that all seven fairies would be active members in the season. She was likely written out while the season was heavily reworked with Nick's involvement and the premiere was delayed by a year.
    • Subverted slightly in season 7, where she plays a more important role than in the two previous seasons. She initially fights alongside the other Winx until her time stone is stolen, causing her to become the group's Mission Control. Apparently she was Put on a Bus again, because she is only present in the season 8 Comic Adaptation
  • Friend to All Living Things: As befitting the Fairy of Animals. She cares a great deal for animals, loving them, and keeping them as pets to the point of making her own secret shelter for them in the back of her father's bar.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: A mild version. She is rather hot-headed, but she usually apologizes afterwards.
  • Human Dad Nonhuman Mom: Klaus (human father) and Morgana (nonhuman mother).
  • Ineffectual Loner: She's not effective on her own due to her inexperience, but she does well with the Winx.
  • Kaleidoscope Eyes: Roxy's eyes are usually violet, but in the early development of season four, they were planned to be yellowish. Several scenes of "The White Circle" have her eyes change from violet to the original yellow, due to animation errors.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: "No more running!" She summons an army of birds and insects which drive the wizards away.
  • Mission Control: Roxy takes this role in season 7 after her time stone is stolen, contacting the Winx about any trouble involving the Fairy Animals.
  • Morality Pet: To Morgana, surprisingly. Despite her quest of vengeance against mankind, she won't hurt her and it's her pleading that caused her to drop her vendetta. It's more surprising when she is her mother.
  • Multicolored Hair: Her hair is purple with yellow highlights. Her highlights disappear in season 5, but return in season 6.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: She freed the Earth fairies from their exile... and now they're free to take their revenge on mankind!
  • Refusal of the Call: She initially doesn't want to be a fairy or have anything to do with magic.
  • Selective Obliviousness: She can be very stubborn, demonstrated in her reluctance to believe that fairies exist, even when the evidence was literally staring her in the face.
  • Sixth Ranger: She was billed as the seventh member of the Winx.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: She has the power to speak to animals through telepathy and can even summon them in that sense. She can also grant them the ability to speak like humans, though it doesn't last long.
  • Took a Level in Badass: At first, she needed a lot of rescuing, but after getting the hang of her powers, she got better.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Morgana and especially Nebula, who needed her to break out of their imprisonment to get their revenge.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Roxy has purple hair.

Kiko is Bloom's pet rabbit.

  • What Happened to the Mouse?: In the last episode of the Season 2, Kiko gains wings and becomes a pixie-animal. However, they have not been seen since.

How well does it match the trope?
