"I was almost 8 years old when I was watching a kid on a TV commercial, and I told my mom that I wanted to do the same thing."

Victoria Dawn Justice (born February 19, 1993 in Hollywood, Florida) is an American actress and singer. She is half Puerto Rican on her mother's side. She is best known for playing the roles of Tori Vega on Victorious, Lola Martinez on Zoey 101, Wren in Fun Size, Jordan from The Boy Who Cried Werewolf, and Lindy Sampson in Eye Candy. She also has herself a Twitter and a Youtube page.

Victoria became a popular Instagram model towards the end of the 2010s, effectively transitioning from her music & acting career into a social media starlet. Starting in late 2020, she has revived her music career by releasing occasional singles as an indie artist following a period of dormancy after her 2013 post-Victorious co-headlining tour with Big Time Rush.

Victoria Justice's works exhibits these tropes:

  • Butt-Monkey: All of her appearances on Brain Surge had her be the first contestant to be eliminated.
  • Break Up Song: The unreleased "Perfect" is about wanting to end a relationship that initially seemed great.
  • Chewing the Scenery:
    • And on Victorious, her character has moments of this.
    • Her performances on Lip Sync Battle.
  • Covered in Gunge: When hosting the 2020 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. She'd also previously gotten it in a trailer for the 2012 ceremony, along with Daniel Radcliffe. She got more of it (Radcliffe barely got any).
  • Extreme Doormat: A self-proclaimed people pleaser, she wrote "Too F*ckin' Nice" as an anthem to people who are too kind and polite for their own good.
  • Girls with Moustaches: A big fan of wearing fake mustaches, to the point that most of the emoticons she uses include a moustache.
  • Identical Stranger: She met Nina Dobrev for the first time at the Teen Choice Awards of 2015 and called her "my doppelganger".
  • Medley: She has done three medleys with Max Schneider and with Kurt Hugo Schneider producing. One was a Bruno Mars medley, another was a Maroon Five medley and another is a Christmas song medley. She actually performed the "Bruno Mars Medley" on her Make It in America Tour.
  • Ms. Fanservice:
    • Lots of it. She always dresses up well at big events.
    • Her very popular Instagram account shows her often in revealing outfits.
  • Prefers Going Barefoot: Is frequently seen barefoot on promotional pictures and social media.
  • Precision F-Strike: 2020 comeback single "Treat Myself" has two moments of this, starting with a "damn" in the second line. It shows a broken side of Victoria that had been impacted by constant negativity and self-doubt.
    "I don't need nobody else, learning this shit for myself."
  • Secret Relationship: The unreleased "Our Little Secret".
    "The moment they spot us, our cover is blown. It's useless, it's pointless, just leave us alone, okay? I can't live that way."
  • Self-Deprecation: "Treat Myself" is a depression anthem that discusses and defies this, being about self-hate and trying to overcome it.
    "I wouldn't say the things I do to anybody else
    So why's it okay to say to myself?"
  • Shout-Out: The single cover for "Only a Stranger" pays homage to Billy Joel's The Stranger album cover.
  • Silly Love Songs: "Gold" is a playful song about a girl trying to get her crush to make the first move toward a relationship.
  • Singer-Songwriter: She writes and performs much of her own music.
  • This Is a Song: "Make It In America" has a verse where she talks about singing the lyrics to a song she wrote called "Make It In America".
  • Typecasting: Her most common roles are a combination of Nice Girl and Everygirl, sometimes Only Sane Woman. Eye Candy defies this with her lead role as an obsessive hacker with a legally dubious history.
  • Undying Loyalty: The unreleased "Friends Count" for Build-A-Bear Workshop.
  • Unflinching Walk: At the end of the climax in The Boy Who Cried Werewolf.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice is softer, richer, and a bit less nasal on "Treat Myself" than it was on the songs she recorded for the first season of Victorious, showing more range and becoming less reliant on auto-tune.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser:
