Top 42 Most Popular 80s Animated Female Characters

Top 41 Most Popular '80s Animated Female Characters


Animated cartoons, as a medium of amusement, may have been around since the turn of the 20th century, but they largely catered to a male audience by striving to give them lots of action and explosions.


However, as the years went by, cartoon characters started maturing in the true sense of the word around the world. A ton of iconic and hugely popular female characters that we know today first graced the screens in the 1980s.


While some of the characters got adapted into live-action movies and series, others were not so privileged. Those who were treated to an extremely fine selection of fabulous females during the aforementioned decade would know that they were alluring and inspiring in equal measure.


Therefore, today, we have taken the onus on ourselves to fetch you a story on some of the finest animated female characters from the ’80s. So, while the women in the real world were battling for positions of power at the time, these cartoon women were doing their best to shatter the glass ceiling and stand equal to their animated male counterparts.




1. Lady Jaye/Scarlett (G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero)


Lady Jaye/Scarlett (G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero)


You’ll have to forgive us for including both of G. I. Joe: A Real American Heroes’ two main female soldiers in one entry. However, we do have an explanation for the same: they were pretty much the same character.


We say so because they were both sergeants who specialized in counterintelligence and used distinct projectile weapons to battle their respective foes. Moreover, they both had no problem kicking Cobra’s butt.


While Scarlett is known to have guided the entire Joe team on more than one occasion, she is also credited with saving the world along with Lady Jaye. If these similarities weren’t enough to justify their presence in the same entry, make peace with the fact that they both got apprehended a lot less than Duke did.




2. Firestar (Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends)


firestar (spider-man and his amazing friends)


It is easy to gauge that Firestar from Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends was created to be the “fire” component of Spider-Man’s slightly bizarre “fire and ice”-themed partners. Thriving on her heat and flame powers, she was arguably the most powerful of the Amazing Friends, which is why she got to battle a range of supervillains along with the beloved titular character.


While she never made her presence felt in comic books, she did manage to make an impact in the animated series. Introduced as a mutant, she had the extraordinary ability to control heat at her will. She was as spunky and sassy as one could get, which is why the fans took to her.


Alongside Iceman and Spider-Man, she was able to prove her worth to the fans. That being said, rumours are rife that Firestar might soon be making a comeback in the modern, live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe.




3. Princess Ariel (The Little Mermaid)


Princess Ariel (The Little Mermaid)


Princess Ariel was introduced in the 1980s as the fourth princess of the Disney franchise. One of the main leads of the 1989 feature The Little Mermaid, she is as adventurous as they come.


In fact, her longing for adventures is aided by the fact that she is quite headstrong as an individual. Needless to say, this makes her even more determined to pursue her adventures.


Even though she is a likeable personality, she needs to take her safety into account from time to time. We say so because she finds herself getting into trouble rather frequently.


It is amazing to catch Ariel’s journey of self-discovery on the screen for that is precisely what makes The Little Mermaid timeless in the true sense of the word.




4. Teela (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe)


Teela (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe)


When the promos of the Netflix reboot Masters of the Universe: Revelation was revealed, it was clear that Teela will have as big of a role in the show as He-Man himself.


Even though there was expected backlash, the gender shift did make a little sense given the context and premise of the new show. Teela is portrayed as the Captain of the Royal Guard at Eternia’s palace.


Needless to say, she is responsible for both the protection and training of a certain Prince Adam.



5. Cheetara (ThunderCats)


Cheetara (ThunderCats)


The smartest and most levelheaded of all the ThunderCats, Cheetara caused great excitement among many ’80s boys by appearing ‘naked’ in ThunderCats’ opening episode. However, she took little time to clarify that she was far more tough and agile than any boy could ever be.


It is not surprising then that a lot of people who grew up in the ’80s were always trying to replicate her incredible speed. The more than able warrior, who is credited with introducing an entire generation of boys to furry dom, was mostly seen combatting Mumm-Ra-directed mutant attacks.



6. Gloria Baker (M.A.S.K.)


Gloria Baker (M.A.S.K.)


Arguably the best female member of the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, Gloria Baker was a racing car driver who got to pilot a brilliant car-turned-submarine called Shark in the show’s exciting debut season.


It wouldn’t be wrong to mention that she was likely all the woman M. A. S. K. could handle. This wasn’t only because was a champion race car driver but also because she held a black belt in kung fu.


Besides the Shark, Baker also owned the Stiletto; a Lamborghini that turned into a helicopter. It isn’t surprising then that she had the finest driving skills and the best, most expensive vehicles in the secret organization.


Add to that the fact that she used her vehicles to combat evil, therefore, making her M. A. S. K.’s most promising and trusted agent.



7. Jem (Jem)


Jem (Jem)


Yes, we can’t deny that some rebellious young girls from the ’80s may have preferred Pizzazz, lead singer of the rival band The Misfits, but we believe that there was simply no match to Jerrica Benton’s beauty or talent.


Benton, who starred in her own self-titled animated series, banked on her singing alter-ego Jem and her band the Holograms to impress most young girls at the time. Needless to say, she was able to delight us in every episode courtesy of some brilliantly produced songs that featured vocals from professional singers.


So, believe us when we say that Jem was truly a gem!



8. She-Ra (She-Ra: Princess of Power)


she-ra (she-ra: princess of power)


She-Ra may have been rebooted in the successful Netflix show She-Ra and the Princesses of Power in 2018, but those who were raised during the mid-80s were already familiar with Princess Adora.


Adora, who was best known by her alter-ego She-Ra, was created to appeal to young girls in the same way He-Man had connected with the young boys of the same generation.


Audacious, loyal, and loving, she liked nothing more than to help people around her; especially the princesses. A very open-minded individual, she believed in standing up for what was right and was more than willing to fight for it.


Better still, she looked great while at it. Even though she wasn’t privileged enough to grow up around her parents, she learned to be forgiving over time.


Having said that, whether She-Ra was able to match He-Man in terms of popularity is debatable. What, however, cannot be debated is the fact that she sold around $60 million worth of toys and merchandise in 1985 alone.



9. Hello Kitty (Hello Kitty’s Furry Tale Theater)


Hello Kitty (Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater)


Kitty White, popularly known as Hello Kitty, is a staple character of Japanese pop culture. The thought behind her creation was to attract young teenage girls towards the show Hello Kitty’s Furry Tale Theater, which was co-produced by a Japanese-American company during the second half of the ’80s.


In each of the 13 episodes, it was Hello Kitty who was seen playing a significant role. The bright and kind-hearted kitty is reported to have lived in a London suburb with her family.


While her appearance is tomboyish, she had been developed as a very feminine character by her writers. Characterized by a trademark “red bow” on her left ear, Hello Kitty was appointed as children’s ambassador by UNICEF, as well as the ambassador of tourism by the Japanese government.



10. Steelheart (Silverhawks)


Steelheart (Silverhawks)


Steelheart, a.k.a. Sgt. Emily Hart was the only female member of the Silverhawks. She served as a mechanic on the team and was the twin sister of Steelwill, which allowed her to psychically communicate with her brother over long distances.


Just like in the case of her brother, her heart rejected the initial Silverhawk transformation, which prompted her to receive a stainless steel heart (sounds cool, doesn’t it?). However, it would be wise on your part to not think of her as the dainty one for she outwrestled Mumbo Jumbo; the giant mecha-minotaur who served as Mon*Star’s chief enforcer.


Take note of the fact that even her brother had trouble dealing with the giant.



11. April O’Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)


April O'Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)


April O’Neil, who was the first human ally of the Ninja Turtles, made her first appearance in the Mirage comic series in 1984 as a computer programmer. However, when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiered in 1987, she was depicted as a scientist who was saved from an attack at her laboratory by the pizza-loving titular characters.


April’s transfer from the pages of comic books to our television screens saw her become a strong-willed and conscientious news reporter. Also, we are more than aware of the fact that her love interest in the series was Casey Jones.



12. Diana the Acrobat (Dungeons and Dragons)


Diana the Acrobat (Dungeons and Dragons)


One of the main characters in the Dungeons & Dragons animated series, Diana was someone whose remarkable acrobatic abilities ensured that she was always the favourite member of the young Dungeons & Dragons crew.


It is imperative to mention that this tomboyish 14-year-old girl was an Olympic gymnast and horse rider before she found herself in Dungeons & Dragons’ nightmarish domain. Also, Diana had an unbreakable staff that could shrink or grow in length at her will.


That did make her someone to watch out for, didn’t it?



13. Penny (Inspector Gadget)


Penny (Inspector Gadget)


A certain cyborg police inspector may have been responsible for providing gadgets that were considered to be cool at the time, but his niece Penny is the one who utilized them properly to fight an entire criminal organization for years.


In fact, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to assert that had it not been for the 10-year-old girl, the entire world would have been under the control of Dr Klaw.


Even though Penny’s investigations often led to her being apprehended, her technological devices technology such as her computer book, laptop, tablet, and video watch help her in escaping the enemy’s clutches.



14. Arcee (Transformers)


Arcee (Transformers)


Arcee may not be the first female Transformer, but she certainly is the most famous one. Her popularity among followers of the franchise is a reason she has made more appearances and has had several more incarnations than any other female Transformer to date.


A frequent member of many Autobot missions, she helped in transforming Autobot City into its fortress mode during Transformers: The Movie; therefore, preventing the Autobots from being destroyed. Not only that but she also bailed several Transformers from the Quintessons and fought the zombie Optimus Prime.


That said, what makes her more humane is the fact that Arcee cares about humans and her fellow Transformers, and is more than capable of taking care of them all by herself.



15. Baroness (G.I. Joe)


Baroness (G.I. Joe)


Anastasia DeCobray, better known by her codename Baroness, was the most prominent woman in Cobra’s ranks. Her shiny, long dark hair, sleek leather suit, and black-rimmed glasses became a trademark look for her in G. I. Joe. Since she was an intelligence officer of a terrorist group, she was aware of the true identity of Destro, who happened to be her lover. A skilled combatant, she proved to be quite the threat to the Joes.


Add to that the fact that she was an able student of the political sciences and economics and, therefore, was involved with activism. Not only did the Baroness deal in information but also misinformation from time to time.


In fact, it is imperative to mention that she often used to discover the military’s secret plans as well. So, trust us when we stress that she couldn’t be trusted!



16. Wish Bear (Care Bear)


Wish Bear (Care Bear)


Wish Bear is one of the ten original Care Bears who was first seen making an appearance on American greeting cards in 1982. However, she shot to fame following the premiere of the television series Care Bear in 1985.


Since then, she went on to play the main character in every incarnation of the franchise. Best known for her turquoise fur and her belly badge, she helps in making people’s wishes come true.


It is not surprising then that she is characterized by her yellow shooting star with a smile symbolizing “wish”. Even though she can come across as a tad shy and reticent, Wish Bear is blessed with good pals.


While she is friends with another bear called Twinkle, who she happened to have chanced upon as a cub, she is also on good terms with Cheer bear and Bedtime bear.



17. Princess Ariel (Thundarr The Barbarian)


Princess Ariel (Thundarr The Barbarian)


The stepdaughter of one of the Wizards in Thundarr The Barbarian, Princess Ariel was tired of her father’s wicked nature and his followers. So, she decided to fight back and started by freeing two of her father’s slaves that had a reputation for fighting back themselves.


Along with them, she went on to tour the ruined landscape of America and freed more people who were enslaved. Since she was a powerful sorceress with an encyclopedic knowledge of Earth from the 20th century, it helped her while dealing with travelling the burnt-out and overgrown remains of the planet.


The trio thrived on her magical powers and undeniable intelligence. Often towards the end of the episodes, one could see Thundarr getting into a lot of trouble. Fortunately for him, Ariel would always be around to bail him out.



18. Ursula (The Little Mermaid)


Ursula (The Little Mermaid)


Ursula, who is also known as the Sea Witch, was the central antagonist of the immensely popular Disney animated feature film, titled The Little Mermaid. Half-woman and half-octopus, she was known to make deals with the pained merfolk.


Basically, she made them believe that she could turn their lifelong dreams into reality and, therefore, the folks had no qualms about striking a deal with her. One could never underestimate Ursula’s magical powers primarily because we had all seen her turn a mermaid into a human.


Needless to say, she was probably capable of executing all kinds of marine magic and is a solid addition to our story.



19. Gadget (Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers)


Gadget (Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers)


Those who have seen Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers remember Gadget as being more than “The Girl” of the group. She turned out to be an inspiration to young girls who may have had dreams of going into fields like science or engineering.


Indeed, she was a genius who utilized each piece of machinery she could get her hands on to help save the day. Of course, not all her inventions worked as planned, but it didn’t stop her from trying to work on them even more.


That said, like most of us in the real world, Gadget also suffered from the occasional bouts of self-esteem, especially when it came to her place on the team.



20. Wonder Woman (Super Friends)


Wonder Woman (Super Friends)


The founding member of the Justice League of America, Wonder Woman happened to be an Amazon Princess from Paradise Island. Besides the League, she was also one of the few female members of Super Friends.


Her Invisible jet, magic lasso, and bracelets were coupled with her super strength and other abilities; each of which helped her in being arguably the greatest asset to her squad.


She was known as Diana Prince in her civilian identity and had served as an Air Force intelligence officer, NASA astronaut trainee, U. N. employee, and the proprietor of a mod fashion store, respectively.



21. Catra (She-Ra: Princess of Power)


Catra (She-Ra: Princess of Power)


She-Ra: Princess of Power was a show that gave viewers more female characters than most shows did at the time. So, besides the titular character, it was Catra who managed to stand out in the crowd.


Not only did this feline foe seek power but she also held a serious grudge against Adora/She-Ra. Needless to say, she was seen as the main antagonist in both the toy line and cartoon before being replaced by Hordak.


Catra proved to be a worthy enemy and relied heavily on her magical abilities and mask to make an impact. She was agile and had great reflexes and strength, as well as the ability to teleport (as shown in one episode).



22. The Misfits (Jem and the Holograms)


The Misfits (Jem and the Holograms)


There is no denying that everyone loves girls that can rock, and Jem and the Holograms was a cartoon that ended up providing two whole bands’ worth of badasses. The Misfits, however, were better.


The formidable group was known for making songs about taking charge, causing mischief, and being assertive at all times. That is one reason why they resonated with youngsters at the time.


However, their antics also saw them committing small crimes and, in the process, coming across as the one true bad girls of rock. While The Misfits weren’t evil per se, they certainly were raw and driven.


That being said, the girls were also pushed by their selfish manager into doing worst deeds, only so that it could help his agenda.



23. Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)


Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)


Even though Lisa rose to prominence during the ’90s, she did make her television debut during the late ’80s, which justifies her presence in our story. The smartest of all The Simpsons characters, she is an intellectual of sorts.


Even though she comes across as reserved and a tad unapproachable at first, she has a warm heart that even allows her to be vulnerable at times. Lisa has a passion for things that require creativity and productivity; things that not a lot many people excel at in life.


Therefore, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to assert that a lot many smart kids would have had a great time both watching and relating to her well-thought-of character sketch. Needless to say, Lisa Simpson is as original as she is gentle.


However, if one tries to mess with her, she will have no qualms about putting them in their place. That way, she can also be condescending if she truly loses it.



24. Marge Simpson (The Simpsons)


Marge Simpson (The Simpsons)


The homemaker and matriarch of the Simpson family, Marge is one of the five main characters in The Simpsons TV series. In fact, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to claim that she is one of the most amazing female cartoon characters of all time.


She is the moralistic force in her family and often the only one in the house who makes sense. While the other members of the family, except Lisa, are mostly seen turning both the house and town upside down with their antics, it is Marge who tries to maintain order in the household.


Aside from her duties at home, Marge has also been seen flirting briefly with several men throughout the series. However, her love for Homer and her children knows no bounds.



25. Kiki (Kiki’s Delivery Service)


kiki (kiki's delivery service)


One of the most upbeat and kind-hearted characters to make it to our story, Kiki grew up with her loving parents and talking cat, Jiji. She is someone who wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps.


Soon into the movie, we catch her delivering packages on her flying broomstick. Indeed, she used broomsticks to fly much before the characters of Harry Potter stormed the screens.


Even though she is making steady progress in her profession, she also tries to make time to practice magic and explore her new town. However, she still has a lot to learn about both magic and adulthood.



26. Evil-Lyn (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe)


Evil-Lyn (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe)


Make way for the sexy and sensational Evil-Lyn who turned out to be one of the finest antagonists in He-Man’s gallery of villains. She was seen wearing a crown and cape and had a tremendous amount of dark magic to back her antics.


She wasn’t just a capable foil for musclebound heroes but she was also a driven and determined woman who could improvise and change according to the demand of the situations.


Needless to mention, Evil-Lyn often worked for her own interests and was even quite vocal about her relentless desire to rule herself. That is perhaps why she ensured to make her spells work with disguise, deceit, and mind control.



27. Magica De Spell (DuckTales)


Magica De Spell (DuckTales)


Magica De Spell, who first appeared in the “Uncle Scrooge #36” comic, turned out to be a fan-favourite character in the DuckTales cartoon. Her relentless attempts to steal the Number One Dime and claim Scrooge’s success and luck with money were appreciated by ardent fans of the show.


She was designed to look like an attractive witch, which is why she was seen with a raven pet, jet black hair, purple eyeshadow, and a dark wardrobe; each of which helped in lending her a credible villainous look.


While she had a wide range of sorcery, she was also a skilled manipulator who had little trouble tricking others into betraying their own personality. Needless to say, Magica embraced the life of an evildoer with elan.


That said, many of the schemes of the incredibly entertaining sorceress either failed miserably or looked a tad ludicrous, which is perhaps why we feel that her character deserved better.



28. Vanessa Warfield (M.A.S.K.)


Vanessa Warfield (M.A.S.K.)


The Ice Queen of V. E. N. O. M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem) was not a woman you’d have taken lightly even in your dreams. Vanessa Warfield was leader Miles Mayhem’s most valuable agent and a master of tactics.


Her vehicle gave her an upper hand in covert operations and was an arsenal of hidden weapons. Additionally, she was able to thrive on her demolition skills and use of disguises.


As if that didn’t make her strong enough, she was also quite sensual and dangerous when she needed to be. However, like most villains in the real world, her overconfidence led to her downfall.


While she was seen mocking the heroes and her teammates alike, she, at one point, was seen training ravens and treating them better than any human. That said, it also appeared as if she despised men from the core of her heart.



29. Madame-O (Bionic Six)


Madame-O (Bionic Six)


Those who remember the Bionic Six cartoon series agree that its animation and main villain, Dr Scarab, were its high points. While the family of heroes came across as a bit bland, it was Madame-O who added a touch of mystery to the show.


She was a masked figure in a strange pink suit, blue skin, and wild hair, who was as feminine as she was devious. All thanks to her enhanced strength and weaponized sonic harp, she was able to create a lot of chaos for the heroes.


Madame-O, who was known for ending each sentence with the word “darling”, was an older woman before being altered by Dr Scarab. She featured quite a bit in the 65-episode run, but not a lot has been revealed about her background.



30. Miriya Parina (Robotech)


Miriya Parina (Robotech)


Miriya Parina was an ace pilot with a vicious streak who was seen as one of the greatest Zentraedi warriors. A major character in the series, she finally met her match in Max Sterling during one of the events.


That said, it has to be noted that she was a fierce warrior who found her weakness in no more than one person. Moreover, her experiences with the humans soon went on to change her perspective and, therefore, prompted her to marry Max without knowing what it entails.


Miriya, who often proved to be a valuable asset in combat, ultimately wanted to settle down and simply be a mother and wife. Is it surprising then that she found her love while in the middle of a battle?



31. Mother Brain (Captain N: The Game Master)


Mother Brain (Captain N: The Game Master)


Mother Brain from Captain N: The Game Master had a large arsenal of tools at her disposal. She also could generate electricity and had an endless supply of wicked schemes to try and take over the Palace of Power.


It is not surprising then that she was considered to be a deterrent by the heroes. While she had several characters that worked under her, her biggest bumbling assistants were Eggplant Wizard and King Hippo (from “Kid Icarus” and “Punch-Out!!”, respectively).


Even though Mother Brain’s attempts were usually impeded by Kevin, Princess Lana, and their pals, one couldn’t deny that she was an intimidating foe whose cruelty and evil could get the better of her enemies.



32. Rainbow Brite (Rainbow Brite)


Rainbow Brite (Rainbow Brite)


Rainbow Brite was so popular during the ’80s that she could be seen on our bed sheets, lamps, and even our lunch boxes. Needless to mention, most people who grew up watching her during the peak of her fame ended up showering her with love.


While one remembers having a Rainbow Brite cuddly toy at the end of their bed, the character truly made her way into the hearts of her fans through the 13-episode TV series that aired between 1984 and 1986.



33. Princess Paw Paw (Paw Paws)


Princess Paw Paw (Paw Paws)


Princess Paw Paw was the tribal princess of the animated series Paw Paws. She was the daughter of the Wise Paw – the chief of Paw-Paws, and a beautiful princess who was adored by everyone in her village for her caring and kind nature.

Her appearance alone was cute enough to attract viewers.

Given the fact that there was no other woman in or around the village, she was almost always in demand. Needless to say, her help was needed not only for cooking or sewing but also for being a sympathetic ear.



35. Lydia Deetz (Beetlejuice)


Lydia Deetz (Beetlejuice)


Loosely based on the movie of the same title, the cartoon version of Lydia was a breath of fresh Gothic air in the universe of cartoons. In a rather stark setting, she managed to stick out with her black hair, pale skin, and purple eyeshadow.


Girls whose interests and looks deviated from what was considered “normal” at the time resonated with the character massively. Also, the fact that she was isolated and alone made a ton of people empathize with her; therefore, providing the character with a layer.


In the Neitherworld, Lydia could be seen being herself and her friendship with Beetlejuice allowed her to be spirited. Needless to say, she had lots of fun in her topsy-turvy home away from home.



36. Strawberry Shortcake (The World of Strawberry Shortcake)

While she was usually the first to point out the shortcomings or dangers of the group’s plans, she also stood for her dear ones when they needed her the most.


All thanks to her magnanimity, she received unexpected rewards, such as being offered to become Queen of Zinn which she politely declines. Furthermore, she was also able to redeem Karena, Dungeonmaster’s daughter, from evil.



39. Tess Darrett (Pole Position)


Tess Darrett (Pole Position)


Pole Position was a video game that was released in 1982 by Namco. Its popularity led to the creation of a Saturday morning cartoon of the same name that was released in 1984.


While the cartoon varied wildly from the video game, it did manage to attract kids who were enticed by racing cars. Another reason to have seen the show was the two siblings who took over the family crime-fighting business from their deceased parents.


While Dan Darrett was hot-headed, his sister Tess Darrett was the epitome of cool. Since she was the older sibling, she was the leader of the team and the defacto mother figure to Dan and their younger sister Daisy.
