Fiery Redhead / Animated Films

Go To

  • Disney movies have several of these redheads:
    • Peter Pan has red hair in the Disney film (the book never specified his hair color) and is excitable, Hot-Blooded and rash.
    • Disney's The Little Mermaid - Ariel is known as the first rebellious, Disney Princess with a thirst for adventure and tendency toward recklessness. The creators of Enchanted say (strawberry) Giselle owes her spunkiness to her.
      • Ariel (1989) isn't really the first Rebellious Princess; Princess Eilonwy (1985) from the lesser-known The Black Cauldron actually is. She's a blonde in the film, but in the source novels she's described as "Eilonwy of the red gold hair".

    • Despite being a scarlet parrot, Iago from Aladdin counts, thanks to his fiery red feathers.
    • Anna from Frozen has strawberry blonde hair; she doesn't exactly seem to have a Hair-Trigger Temper, but she is still very much Hot-Blooded. Still, you don't want to get on her bad side, because she can get quite fiery if provoked properly.
    • Pixar seems to love this trope.
  • From Shrek
  • Tigress, the leader of the Furious Five from Kung Fu Panda, who just happens to be an anthropomorphic wild cat with mostly orange fur.
  • Treasure, the wannabe leader of the Female Furies, from Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Too bad the four Female Furies killed her, left her as a bloody mess on the ground, and decided to "let the dogs clean up the mess".
  • Despicable Me 2 features the orange-haired Lucy Wilde, the very excitable agent assigned to work with Gru.
  • Sunset Shimmer from the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls films. Though she makes a Heel–Face Turn at the end of the first movie, she still slips into this on occasion, notably when Trixie accused her of sabotaging Rainbow Dash's guitar solo.

  • Winnie from The Boxtrolls, is quite outspoken.
    Winnie: "You’re the worst pick-pocket I’ve ever seen! Here! [Tosses him a coin.] Buy a book on how to be a better thief!"
  • The Heat Miser from The Year Without a Santa Claus is a literal case. He has vibrant red hair and is known for, well, his heat powers. That and he has quite a temper.
