Web Animation / Niņa Repelente

Go To
Niña Repelente was a Spanish web animation series created by the extinct Spanish animation company Impose Studios on June 2009. Like Cálico Electrónico, it became a hit on the Spanish community, but it faded away, as by the end of 2014 the company stopped making episodes of the series, ending it abruptly. The series features the life of a poor dysfunctional Andalusian family and the sociopathic tendencies of their only daughter, Margarita.

This series has examples of:

  • Adults Are Useless: The adults are very easily manipulated by Margarita.
  • Big Eater: Margarita often jokes about Jose Luis.
  • Birthday Hater: Antonio tends to try to commit suicide on his birthday.
  • Butt-Monkey: Anyone who antagonizes Margarita is likely to become one.
  • Comedic Sociopathy
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Margarita often uses this trope to get away with her shenanigans.
  • Driven to Suicide: Antonio shows this on his birthday.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Concha suffers from these, as sometimes on their house, we can see photos of her with normal eyes. It's implied they started to develop after Margarita was born.
  • Enfant Terrible: Margarita.
  • Evil Laugh: Margarita often giggles at the end of her antics.
  • Fat Comic Relief:Jose Luis
  • Karma Houdini: The majority of episodes leaves Margarita getting away with all of her bad behavior.
    • Concha in later episodes, as she commits more illegal things due to the hallucinations.

  • Jerkass: Margarita most of the time
  • Local Reference: The series uses too much Andalusian humor and slangs.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Margarita screws her cousin's father by making this rumor on her cousin's communion to go away from it. It nearly ruins a marriage.
  • The Resenter: Antonio doesn't even hide that he resents Margarita, as his life went downhill when she was born, getting fired from his job, losing most of his hair and his wife going crazy and addicted to antidepressants. It doesn't help that Margarita treats him like shit most of the time.
  • Sadist Show:
  • There Are No Therapists: Downplayed, while there are actual therapists in the show, they're no match from Margarita's shenanigans.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: Margarita
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: In one episode, Antonio gets a job from one of his cousins in a bakery store. Without realizing it, Margarita takes advantage of this by reselling the cakes of the store at lower prices and stealing the money of the store. After some days, Antonio feels like his life will improve from now long, only to get beaten and fired by the cousin.

How well does it match the trope?
