I present to you these fairytale rebels, daughters of villainess archetypes. Both feel conflicted on whether they follow their inherited roles in their storybook lives, or verge away to write their own once upon a time.

Mal from Descendants. She is Maleficent's daughter who has stolen and used the Fairy Godmother's wand. Secretly a good person, she sports a tough and mean facade as so she would not be considered weak.

Raven Queen from Ever After High. She is the Evil Queen's daughter from Snow White's story. Yet, she is a warm-hearted and good-natured princess who inspires other fairytale characters to join her Rebel Movement.

Would you consider them as Goth characters?
My latest cartoon addiction is the sci-fi series Rick & Morty. In the episode "Getting Schwifty", the townspeople misinterpret the giant alien heads as gods, and begin a cult that has an Ascension ceremony. As you can see, along with a thief and a movie talker, a goth is considered as an unwantable. I guess the joke never gets old for TV writers.
.
"We hereby send these unwantables skyward that they might be inhaled by the many heads, later to be sneezed back to us as better babies."

The Coven's Ten

Here are my top Goth girls who star in their own shows.

Samantha "Sam" Manson from Danny Phantom. She's the leading female, being Danny Phantom's Goth best friend and eventual love interest. She has an unholding interest in the subliminal and netherworldly, but combines this with an outspoken attitude on vegetarianism, animal rights and environmentalism. Her personality is seemingly less dreary than the stereotypical Goth, and more an outlet for her independence and individuality. Sam is often the most pragmatic of the group, and always gets Danny and Tucker out of trouble. It is hinted that she has a psychic connection to Danny. She usually clashes with her preppy parents, who are actually wealthy, but she keeps this a secret so she would not have fake friends. As far as I can remember, she's the very character who introduced me to the Goth subculture.
.
Raven from Teen Titans. As the daughter of the demon, Trigon, Raven has powerful dark abilities such as shadow spells, psychokinesis, and teleportationHer favorite mantra is "Azarath Metrion Zinthos". When she finds out her father Trigon will conquer our world, she joins the Teen Titans to stop him, and stays to continue protecting Jump City and fighting the darkness within her. Her powers and looks are retained in the animated series. Raven is of course the silent and mysterious one in the team. She's emotionally restrained, and spends her spare time reading occult books, meditating in mid-air and hiding in her dark room. She becomes White Raven during unique circumstances. It is her most powerful and purest form, for her "powers are driven by emotion. The more you feel, the more energy you unleash."
.
Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice. Great movie, great cartoon (even there's a lot of changes). In the film, Beetlejuice is the antagonist, who ends up nearly marrying a disgusted Lydia. In the series, they are best friends, and Lydia, something of a social misfit in the living world, frequently visits him in the afterlife during her free time. She summons him through a ritual, while wearing a cobweb-patterned red pereline. She's in her preteens in the show but is pretty much mature, well-mannered and friendly, especially towards the creatures of the Neitherworld. She's a talented amateur photographer, etymologist, seamstress and sketch artist with an innate affinity and love for all things gross, scary, weird and macabre.
.
Ingrid Third from Fillmore!. This genius show is about solving juvenile crimes in a middle school, in the style of hard-boiled police dramas. Ingrid is a seventh grader and Fillmore's partner in the Safety Patrol. She is recruited by Fillmore shortly after he clears her name when she gets framed. The two have since become best partners in crime and investigation. Like Fillmore, she is also a former delinquent. She was sent to a reform school in Nepal for an incident "involving a stinkbomb and pinata". Yet she then becomes the smartest kid in X Middle School due to her photographic memory which is quite helpful in solving cases with Fillmore. Though still a rookie, Ingrid is determined, tough and under-estimated.
.
Dylan Beekler from Golan the Insatiable. Hands down, awesome show from Fox's ADHD. After reading a few passages from a mysterious tome, Dylan summons the dark warlord, Golan the Insatiable, from the realm of Gkruool, and becomes his loyal acolyte after proving herself worthy. Together they spread demonic pandemonium around town, and enact vengeance upon her bullies and apathetic family. She speaks in a prosaic manner and looks down at people, and though little, she is more fervent with Medieval warfare and torture than Golan. Though at times, Golan treats her like a weak puny kid, much to her chagrin. Dylan is the ultimate anti-social and perpetually angry Goth, yet she is in fact a lonely child, hence her obsession and special bond with Golan. I wish I also have a demonic overlord of my own.
.
Rogue from X-Men Evolution. Contrast to the comics' Southern belle, Rogue is re-imagined as a rebellious and cynical, yet insecure and emotionally needy teenager. This results from her mutant power to automatically absorb abilities of other mutants and energies of other people when she touches them. This keeps her very distant from friends and love ones like Cyclops or Gambit. She was raised to hone her powers by Mystique, who even disguised herself as a fellow Goth named Risty Wilde to be close to her. Indeed, Rogue considers her mutant power as a curse and broods over it. In the series, her power grows stronger that it almost drives her insane, until her frienemy Jean Grey takes over her mind.
.
Gwen from Total Drama Island. Though she hates the show, Gwen auditions due to a dare from her brother. And so, she becomes a member of the Screaming Gophers, and unexpectedly, one of the strongest competitors. She is smart, independent, likable and level-headed, stating her best quality is her inability to get excited over miniscule things, unlike the popular crowd of sheep. Heather and other mean girls ridicule her, while underdogs look up to her. She even gets to date cool guy Trent and bad boy Duncan. Gwen eventually makes it to the finals and wins the challenge. She then comes back for special spin-offs and reunions, like as team captain of the Screaming Gaffers.
.
Creepella "Creepie" Creecher from Growing Up Creepie. The show is produced by Discovery Kids to let young ones learn more about the wonderful world of insects. Creepie was abandoned as a baby in Dweezwold Mansion, where a lot of insects live in. Her father is a vegan vampire-like mosquito and her mother is a Morticia Addams-like praying mantis. Creepie, of course, can talk to them but she keeps her life a secret because Middlington is a town of insectophobic people. After each episode, she recounts interesting trivia of the episode's featured insect, with her catch phrase "Wicked". Aside from her entomological talents, whenever she recites poetry, actual creepy stuff happens, and her photography brings out the beauty of the decayed.
.
Joan of Arc from Clone High. She's the clone of Jeanne d'Arc, a 15th century teenage girl who joined the French Army because God spoke to her, yet was burned at the stake for heresy. Unlike the real saint, Joan is an agnostic Goth girl. Well, the rest of the clones do parody historic figures. As for Joan, she's the female best friend of Abe Lincoln, along with Gandhi. She's a witty and outspoken vegan feminist. But she suffers from mundane angst, especially from her unrequited love for the clueless Abe, who instead adores the conceited Cleopatra. Joan has a tendency to erupt melodramatically into tears. The show is a parody of teen dramas prominent at that time, with a pop rock intro song and a "very special episode" every time.
.
Marceline the Vampire Queen from Adventure TimeSpecial mention. More of a punk rock chick, Marceline is a thousand year-old vampire who sucks shades of red. Finn describes her as "a radical dame who likes to play games." Beneath her trickster facade, she has complicated feelings and deep stories kept to her self, like with Princess Bubblegum. Her father is Hunson Abadeer of the Nightosphere, whom she inherited her demonic soul-eating ability from. She has powers of levitation, shape-shifting, necromancy and invisibility which she obtains from the vampires she hunted in the past. She is then bitten by the last one she destroyed, and becomes immortal. Marceline is known for her musical talent with her axe bass, and numerous alternative outfits.

In Memory Of. . . .

Alas, these Goth girls only appear in a single episode.

Malaria in "Grim in Love" (The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy). The episode is alongside "Crushed!", where Mandy also falls in love. Of course, Malaria is the one the Grim Reaper would fall for (better get your hopes up, fellow admirers of Death). She’s somewhat fashioned from Morticia Addams, and the first thing she says to Grim is “You just sucked the life out of me.” They have a romantic montage in the cemetery and  a zombie club. But in the end, Malaria’s Gothness shatters when she finds out that Grim is the real deal. She appears in the show's opening sequence from then on.
.
Electra in "Hercules and the Complex Electra" (Hercules the Animated Series) Hercules falls in love with this non-conformist, and changes his looks and personality into that of a beatnik, because Electra doesn't like heroes and even writes a poem denouncing them. She hangs out in a Grecian-style Goth club that serves pomegranate juice. Reminiscent of Sophocles's play, Electra has the power to summon Furies whenever she's angry. In the  original myth of Electra, she's Agamemnon's daughter who plots revenge against her traitor mother and stepfather for murdering her father after the Trojan War. That is "darkness within". 
 .
Tak from "Tak: The Hideous New Girl" (Invader Zim). Created by Jhonen Vasquez, the author of the dark comics Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, the show was unfortunately canceled before Tak becomes the main antagonist in future episodes (doom be hailed upon Nick!). She only appears once as a Mary Sue-sque character, yet becomes an instant fan favorite. After luring Zim during Valentine's Day, she reveals her grudge and plot against him for unwittingly destroying her chances to be an Elite Irken Invader. Together with her cat-disguised SIR unit, Mimi, Tak almost destroys Earth using meat.
.
Laetitia Bowers in "New Girl in Town" (As Told by Ginger). Though the show is now rarely seen on Nickelodeon, I still remember this episode. The new girl is a Goth named Laetitia. She always brings a skull around, even at the cafeteria, but she admits that it’s mere plastic. Her father is a mortician and drives his daughter around in a hearse. The popular girls at school gossip that he accidentally embalmed his wife. Ginger and her friends then hosts a party in Laetitia’s old Victorian house to gain her more friends. 
.
Morose in "I'll Be Home For Misery" (Ruby Gloom). Here Misery hosts a family reunion. The attendants are all female, who like her each other with M-names, and have their own disaster to suffer. Morose is the one closest to being a Goth. She's very fashionable; her dress pattern is called "the abyss, on a dark night, in the middle of nowhere." She has a voodoo doll that she walks around on a leash. She's depressed most of the time, shouting "Why! Why! Why!" and disliking playful children. But she rocks out loud when she plays the keyboards with the family band, until the whole house literally falls down.
.
Kristin in "The Ballad of Scary Mary" (Sym-Bionic Titan). Octus and Kimmy drag Ilana and Lance with them to an annual school event in the woods known as a Scary Mary party. It is apparently to honor a girl who supposedly died in those woods. Lance is the only one not feeling the party vibe so he chooses to just hangout beside the van until a Goth girl shows up and they begin talking. She appears to have a crush on the apathetic Lance, jokingly telling him they're "soulmates." However, at the end of the episode, Lance walks past her in the school hallway, surprising her as he simply greets her, "Hey".
.
Argent in "Calling All Titans!" (Teen Titans). Aside from Raven, Argent is another dark and gothy superheroine. She even asked for a black communicator to go with her outfit, instead of the original yellow one. In the episode, she meets Starfire and becomes an honorary Titan, but she is soon captured by the Brotherhood of Evil because they want her super power. Argent can fire crimson energy beams, and can use that energy to form objects, similar to Green Lantern. She can also fly at high altitudes and speeds. In the original comics, she's half-alien, summoned during her sweet sixteen party and instead of crimson, her plasmas are silver, like her skin, and usually turn into daggers.
.
Nocturna in "Mall Girl Pearl" (Spongebob Squarepants). In this non-Spongebob episode, Pearl's friends are too busy working in the mall to hang out with her and talk about boys. One of them is Nocturna who works as a cashier in Scorched Coral, but she finds it heinous and greets people to go away. She even lets a customer choke on a spiked bracelet. Pearl tries to get a job there, too, but a Goth look-alike already gets hired and hisses at her. When Pearl starts working at Grandma's Apron, she gets ridiculed by her friends, including Nocturna.
.
Annasthesia in "License to Slumber" (The X's). The show is about a seemingly average family that consists of extreme secret agents. Tuesday is the teenage daughter who only knows what is normal, despite her punk-rock personality. In the episode, Mrs. X, trying to be a normal mom, arranges a slumber party for her daughter, while battling Glowface. One of Tuesday's friends is a Goth named Annasthesia. When she first entered the X's home, she "already despises them all."
.
Cassandra in "Rednecks and Broomsticks" (The Simpsons). Inspired by the movie The Craft, Lisa delves into witchcraft. Cassandra is a part of a Wiccan group who invites Lisa to join them. Lisa is skeptical at first but their spells come true. But ever-religious Flanders (who also thinks Harry Potter should go to hell) gets the coven arrested. In the court trial, Cassandra is addressed as Gwendolyn Nightshadow. But she admits it's "not even my real name. It's Stacey...Stacey Deathsatan."
.
Goth student in "I Never Promised You an Organic Garden" (King of the Hill). Kids who don't want to enroll in gym ends up in the gardening class; unathletic kids like Bobby, Star Wars nerds, meek girls and this Goth girl. Peggy Hill volunteers to be their new teacher, and tells them to get on working. Yet the Goth girl informs her that the former teacher usually does all the stuff, and they mostly "sat around and whatever". Also in one scene, Peggy brings beer to lure away pesty snails. At the background, Goth girl's hand is seen grabbing a can.

Girls Gone Goth

Most of my favorite episodes are when they feature a Goth character, or when a character dresses up as one. I tell you, the following are not fan creations.
 .
Lisa Simpson in "Smart and Smarter" (The Simpsons) When Lisa finds out that her baby sister, Maggie, has a higher IQ than her, she suffers from identity crisis. She tries out different character types, like cowgirl, soccer player, cheerleader, rapper, stand-up comedian, etc. Goth is her second choice, and calls herself Ravencrow Neversmiles. But Milhouse ruins it when he asks her to make out with him in the cemetery. He even thinks she becomes an Oakland Raiders fan. "It's called Goth, eternally clueless one," replies Lisa.
.
Candace in "Flop Starz" (Phineas and Ferb). This only happens for a second because Candace is  trying out different outfits before going to a concert. Her bestfriend Stacey comments, "Too goth." In the episode Hail Doofania!, Candace and the Goth girl Vanessa had their clothes switched in the dry cleaners. Total embarrassment for her when her picture is sent to everyone, and when she tries to keep her posture in front of Jermeny. In The Curse of Candace, she believes she's turned into a vampire, so she visits the town's only Goth store, Whatever, hoping to find apparel that will protect her better from the sunlight. 
.
Alex in "Creepy Crawly Much?"(Totally Spies) In this episode, Alex is a bit down because her bestfriends, Sam and Clover, have their own boyfriends, while she's always ending up with weird guys, until she bumps into this somber Goth guy. Sam and Clover finds it too much when Alex's Goth boyfriend paints her room black, and Alex keeps on speaking in bad Goth poetry. Alex drops the Goth act when their villain, who's a half-insect king, chooses her to be his queen because she embraces the darkness like cockroaches do.
.
Nebula in "Lights Out" (6teen). Her real name is Starr, who is Jude's girlfriend. Before she becomes a hard-core Goth, Starr loves skateboarding, veganism, yoga, poetry, and New Age. Come to think of it, these things are also loved by some Goths. In this episode, Jude is totally shocked to find Starr turned into Nebula, “dark and fathomless”, since her eyes are opened and sees the world, “It’s not pretty.” To cope with the sudden change, Jude also assumes a Goth persona and calls himself Judas. Though touched by this, Nebula feels they should stop dating.
.
Numbuh 3 in "C.A.R.A.M.E.L." (Kids Next Door) We've seen the happy-go-lucky Kuki turning to the dark side, especially when she becomes the Grim Reaper's replacement in Billy and Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure. But in "Operation: Candies Are Really Altering Many Extraordinary Lives", Heinrich Von Marzipan, the infamous candy hunter, has used a sacred ancient ritual in creating the best caramels by sacrificing his victims' most valued quality. In Numbuh 3's case, it's her bubbly sweet and lovable personality. Once removed from her, what is left is a total glum girl.
.
Star Butterfly in "Mr. Candle Cares" (Star Vs. the Forces of Evil). This show subverts the tropes of the magical princess genre, and goes for a slice-of-life approach. The school guidance counselor, manipulated by Star's demon ex-boyfriend, tells she is destined to be the future queen of Mewni. But the spunky princess finds being queen to be boring and depressing. To rebel against her destiny, Star went [medieval] goth, and was about to cut off a mermaid's tail to be disqualified. Yet, her bestfriend, Marco, reassures her that she can be her own queen and rule Mewni how she wants. Happy, Star summons a deranged unicorn.
.
Yin in "Gone-A-Fowl" (Yin Yang Yo!) Yin is forced to be Coop's girlfriend for the day. She finds out that, when aggravated, he can become extremely evil, zapping chaos and darkness (even onto clothing). And yet, in his evil phase, he becomes extremely attractive. Yin finds this as a problem; he can't be hot, at the same time, good. Coop's solution is to turn Yin evil and Goth! They become an evil power couple called Yoop, and decide to be Night Masters for the Dark Tomorrow. Yang finds evil Yin, or as she calls herself, Eve, impossible to defeat. "C'mon, sis, you don't want to be evil." Yin's reply: You get to wear black.
.
Kimiko in "The Return of the Pandabubba" (Xiaolin Showdown) Of all the various stylish outfits Kimiko wears in every episode, only this one has I found to be close to Goth. And in this episode, Kimiko wallows and cries, because her father is turned into a zombie by Pandabubba using the Zing-Zom Bone. It is indeed a dark episode, with all the zombies and the Shroud of Shadows, and the style is a nod to horror movies. 
.
Tina Belcher in "Teen-a-Witch" (Bob's Burgers). In this Halloween episode, Tina decides to be a witch sandwich as her costume for the school contest. She burrows a book on witchcraft in the library, and apparently her spells work. She then feels confident and empowered, and starts wearing a black shirt and tattoo choker. This is a homage to the 90's cult film and beloved by Goths at heart, The Craft. Though the gothiness is a bit simple, Tina is at least called "Goth Brooks" by the creepy librarian.
.
Stella in Exchange Students (Winx Club). Stella, the most fashionable of the fairies, has gone Goth, too. Well, only in her imagination. When the Winx hear the news that they're going to Cloud Tower and work with the witches, Stella imagines her self in different Goth witch outfits. But she doesn't like the idea very much.  Also in this episode, Mirta has a major role as she accompanies the Winx Club in her former school. More of Stella's goth outfits are in this site.
.
CJ in "Real Date" (Regular Show). Mordecai first meets CJ through an online dating site called Couple Corral. During their real date, Matchmaker McIntyre tries to ruin their relationship because, with the increase of happy couples, no one is using Couple Corral anymore, thus losing his business. He shows Mordecai photos of CJ with different hairstyles and says "How do you expect her to be committed to you when she can't even commit to a hairstyle?" Well, she is a cloud (who can also turn into a storm). Here it is revealed CJ had a Goth phase.
.
Sharon Spitz in "The Doctor is In" (Braceface). Sharon gets jealous when her mean girl, Nina Harper, starts going to her mom's therapy sessions. She becomes mad at her mom for not caring for the things she cares about, like going to the Vice Grip concert. Sharon then thinks her problems are not big enough, so she tries to become a Goth (apparently she thinks that's a big issue when it happens to a child). Her gifted little brother then starts playing ominous music on the piano. Unfortunately, their mom thinks it's a theater arts project.
.
Vicky (Vexus) in "Queen Bee" (My Life as a Teenage Robot) Technically, she has gone human Goth girl. Vexus is a cruel alien robot queen who's bent to conquer Earth. The Crust Sisters, the popular mean girls at school,  teach her the correct teen slang and fashion, as part of their plan to destroy XJ9. Like Brit and Tiff, she changes her stylish clothes daily. One is this Gothic ensemble. But she becomes more popular and powerful than the Crust Sisters. The two then have to team up with Jenny so they won't become social outcasts.
.
Betty and Veronica in She's Goth to Have It (Archie Comics) Of all the thousands of comics, this is the only one that features the Goth culture. 
At first, Betty feels ignored by her friends and meets two Goth girls in a new coffee shop. She adapts their Goth style to get attention from her friends but she realizes she was just ignoring them, like what they did to her. In the end, Veronica, Archie and Reggie have gone Goth themselves to get Betty's attention.

Computer Gothics

We might as well delve into C.G.I. cartoons.

Eta Hiss Hiss from Monsters University. The ΗΨΨ sorority has been around since the beginning of Monsters University and the members are as mysterious as they are terrifying. The HSS sisters might be pale, mysterious and sullen, but these intimidating Goth girls are fierce competitors and tough as nails. Fittingly, their most distinguished alumna 
is one of the most powerful, whom every Scare student strives to impress. That would be Dean Hardscrabble, the stern yet sophisticated antagonist. During the Scare Games, HSS is the fourth team eliminated in the Hide and Sneak event, because they resort to typical monster hiding places. Interestingly enough, their names are normal ones like Nancy Kim and Sonia Lewis, instead of dark name changes many Goths would have.
.
Jacqueline and Delphine from Barbie: A Fashion Fairy Tale. Among the many pink and pretty Barbie films, there's one that has Goths.. as the villains that is. Jacqueline owns the fashion boutique across Aunt Millicent's. Her edgy and savvy fashion (like that of Haute Goths) caused it to go out of business, until Barbie came along and discovered the Flairies. Jacqueline actually doesn't want to be trendy; she wants to start the trends herself. As for Delphine, she's her preppy assistant and number-one fan. She goes along Jacqueline's evil schemes, but she's actually a good person. They kidnap the Flairies and force them to do their magic on their new collection. To be honest, I find her designs much more couture than Barbie's.
.
Clair from Ghouls Rule! This is a Halloween special of Monster High, where there's a divide between the monsters and the "normies" (mortal humans). Clair is a Goth normy who right away notices Frankie and her ghoulish friends during a party. She takes an interest on the monsters, even calling Holt Hyde cute. Along with her goofy friend Chad, she sides with the monsters when the normies become intolerant of their kind. Clair, being a Goth, knows how's it like to be an outcast, and defends anyone, normy or monster, against bullies like Lilith. She's a spunky girl who's not into parties, lame music, and mushy stuff. She has the heaviest make-up in all the characters of Monster High. Hope she becomes her own doll.
.
Mavis from Hotel Transylvania. She is the precious daughter of Dracula. Though she's 118 years old, she's still a typical teenager who grows bored within the hotel's ancient grounds and creatures, and longs to fly away and see the world. But Dracula has pampered her so much and has told her fear-filled stories about humans. She's then emotionally grounded to her father, until she "zinged" Jonathan (in monster disguise) for the first time, whom she grows curious about and falls in love with. Fearing his dear daughter will leave her daddy, Dracula tries his best to keep the human boy away from Mavis during her birthday celebration.
.
Lizzy from Meet the Robinsons. She participates in the school science fair, and presents her pet fire ants that only harm her “enemies”. Wilbur Robinson accidentally bumps into her, and her fire ants escape, causing further chaos in the auditorium. The science fair mishap triggers a rivalry between Lizzy and Stanley, the papier-mâché volcano kid, well into the future, as featured in the video game, where they become super-villains. Lizzy is the underground-based leader (or queen) of a swarm of robotic giant ants terrorizing the city, and clashing with Stanley's own machines. Her main plot is to steal Robinson's time machine.
.
Emelia from Emelia: The Five-Year Old Goth Girl. This delightfully creepy short had been circulating in the mid-2000s, with good sound design and a Tim Burton-esque character. It shows the typical life of an average babygoth, Emelia, while she narrates it with her monotonous voice. She has a pet bat, sews a cursed teddy bear, boringly eats Count Chocola for breakfast, scares the Halloween candy out of neighborhood kids, and listens to Marilyn Manson (as I said, a babygoth). The fun animated short then tackles how Emelia handles some of the difficult emotions every five-year old Goth girl have.
.
Pig from Back at the Barnyard. The show is about talking and partying barnyard animals who uses disguises to get around humans in some episodes. In "Some Like It Snotty", Otis the Cow and the others, including Pig, want to attend ladies night in the bowling alley. So, they disguise themselves as girls. As for Pig, he uses a goth girl outfit! Though they are hideous, Snotty Boy (their enemy) and his friends force them on a date. Pig is paired to the emo boy and retaining his tough goth girl identity, he punches the emo kid when he starts getting comfortable. Pig also uses the same disguise briefly in "Doggelganger".
.
Dixie Grim from Daddy, I'm a Zombie. She's a confused thirteen year-old with raging hormones (we've been there). She is trapped between two worlds - the former happiness of her childhood, and the insecurity of growing up without a role model, since her mother divorced her father, a coroner. Now, after a tree falls in a forest, while she runs away in a sad mood, and kills her, Dixie is turned into a zombie and is trapped in the world of the undead. She is helped by other zombies, such as a mummy named Isis, to find a way to return to a "normal" life.

Extra Shadows

Television writers have been fascinated with the Goth girl archetype, and considered them as side characters and dark comic reliefs in their shows. Although, these Goth girls are portrayed as stereotypes, and sometimes, the borderline between Goth, emo, metal and punkrock become thin.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.... ♫

The Hex Girls is a fictitious Gothic rock band in recent Scooby Doo movies such as The Witch’s Curse and The Legend of the Vampire. They become instant fan favorites, and appear again in the series. The one with the pigtails is Dusk, the drummer and rebel of the band. In the middle is Thorn, their leader and guitarist, and she’s part Wiccan. Then, there’s Luna, the keyboardist. Her father is a dentist, hence their genuine fangs. Their songs are reminiscent of modern Goth rock, and fitting for a cartoon full of ghosts and mysteries.
.
Creepy Susie from The Oblongs. She first appeared in a book entitled Creepy Susie and 13 Other Tragic Tales for Troubled Children. Her complete name is Susane Marcheline Rachelle Garnier. She’s one of Milo Oblong’s friends, the Clubhouse Kids who are deformed due to the pollution in Hill Valley. She speaks about the worst ways to die and her murderous deeds, in a French accent. Her feet is never seen under her long dress, and she seems to float instead of walk. She’s also a pyromaniac, and has burned down the clubhouse before. I watched all the episodes of The Oblongs because of her. Too bad the show was short-lived.
.
Debbie Hyman from American Dad!. She’s Steve Smith’s girlfriend who qouted “Life is a banquet…Death is dessert.” She first appeared in the episode The American Dad After School Special. They first meet in the  dark air vents when Steve is hiding from gym class. Debbie goes there because she wants to look down on everybody like ants.  They then share an on-again off-again relationship throughout the series. Debbie isn't much accepted by Steve’s parents, but she eventually wins his father’s liking because she's a gun enthusiast. She once runs for student council president, because the mean girls cut off the budget for dissecting baby pigs.
.
Vanessa Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb. She's the sarcastic daughter of the mad scientist and hilarious central villain, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. He expects her to be his assistant, and assumes she's also evil, because of her Goth appearance or as he describes it, "vampire pilgrim scuba diver." But Vanessa is not that enthusiastic towards her estranged father, his villainous schemes, and his attempts to reconnect with her. At first, I didn't expect her character as Goth, until she hangs out with other goths and punks in dark parties and junkyard concerts. There would be episodes where she is entangled in Phineas and Ferb's adventures or Candace's misfortunes.
.
Triana Orpheus from The Venture Bros. She is the daughter of the melodramatic necromancer, Dr. Byron Orpheus. He even turns her closet into a secret gateway to the Necropolis. He sometimes overprotects her, calls her pumpkin, and still sees her as a child, though she's more mature than what he believes, going out in parties, drinking, and smelling of cloves. Triana is friends with Hank, and Dean Venture who has a crush on her. Yet she remains cynical along with her cybergoth best friend Kim who was mistaken as a supervillain. Triana later moves to her mother, Tatyana, to train as a sorceress.
.
Henrietta from South Park. The Goth Kids of South Park Elementary are spot-on parodies. They rarely go to school, and prefer to sit around all day drinking coffee and smoking, and mocking the conformists. They are enemies to the Vamp Kids, since everyone else does not know the difference between the two subcultures. They have also joined a cult of Cthulhu, and burned down Hot Topic. Henrietta is the only one whose name is known, and shares her room as sanctuary. She usually talks about how horrible her parents are, but actually, they are generous and supportive of their Goth daughter, until they send her to Troubled Acres where she is turned into an emo.
.
Crimson from Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race. She and her Goth equal and boyfriend, Ennui, are contestants of this Amazing Race knock-off. Though it is uncertain as to why. Crimson is described to have the emotional range of a stone gargoyle, and tend to scare other competitors. She and Ennui are fluent in Icelandic due to their favorite bands. They then adopt a grey rabbit and name it Loki. When she and Ennui are "de-gothed", both are shocked to see each other in this form for the first time. Yet they look pass appearances, and strongly love each other on their dark insides.
.
Andrea from Daria. I adore this show. Daria and Jane share the same dark and misanthropic views and attitudes as Goths, but their style is more of 90's alternative rock. But there is a Goth in the show and she's Andrea. She's a recurring background character with occasional speaking lines. She has a darkly nihilistic personality, as evidenced by her poetry, and works part-time as a stock clerk in a local warehouse store. She finds Daria and Jane as an intimidating pair, but she's surprised that they're the only ones who understand her dilemma. In the episode Depth Takes a Holiday, the personification of Halloween is a rebellious and selfish Goth girl who plays the drums and leaves cobwebs wherever she stays.

Raven McFadden from Growing Up Creepie. She first appears in the episode Goth to Have Better Friends, along with two goth guys, Misery and Morpheus. She notices Creepie because of her Goth dress, and invites her to their group. Of course, Creepie enjoys their gloomy montage, and uses Raven's catchphrase "gruesomely awesome". The Goths are avid fans of the band “The Hissing Roaches” who are real cockroaches living in Creepie’s basement. The Goth gang appear again in Going to Brogue. They form a band named “Plaid Vapors” that has a bagpiper. Raven’s the guitarist, but the haunted bagpipes belonged to her ancestor, Angus.
.
Annette Freeze-Dright of Fred's Head. Mysterious and enigmatic, Anette is Fred's dream girl and Fabienne's female best friend. Anette's Dad is an ambassador and her mom an ex-Bollywood star. They live in the upper-class part of the city, and she is seen going to school in a limo. Her wardrobe has a definite goth and hippie twist. She is passionate about her art, and is often seen painting or exposing her abstract pieces. Since she is not very expressive in general, it's hard to know if she notices Fred's attraction for her. They had a couple of interesting encounters that generally turned out to be somewhat catastrophic. As a matter of fact, Fred shares the same blase outlook and attitude as Goths.
.
Moonlight Raven from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Yes, there is a Goth unicorn in jolly Ponyville. She's a patriot of Rarity's Canterlot Boutique, along with her polar opposite and pink partner, Sunshine Smiles, and both are seen around sometimes. Moonlight Raven has a bluish palette and her cutie mark is a purple heart with four crescent moons. Her flat voice is like that of a typical Goth, even when she remarks positively. In Canterlot Boutique, she expresses interest in a gown called Over a Moon. "Whoa, this dress completely speaks to my soul."
.
Serena from Downtown. She's the love interest of the shy and geeky Alex. According to Jen, it's another of his hopeless Goth girl fixations. Serena's exotic goth style is off-putting at first, but she's actually a very likable, positive person. She works at Starbase 12, a comic book store, with Matt. Creatively unfocused, she writes poetry, designs clothes, makes jewelry, and plays the zither. Serena has dated a string of junkies, posers, and manic-depressives. She claims she's ready to meet a "nice guy", but she rarely notices them when they are around.
.
Ingrid from Star Vs. The Forces of Evil. Ingrid is a German-speaking Goth girl who seems to be hostile towards a teddy bear, and has an interest in battle weaponry. It's no wonder she gets into detention. And it's no wonder she instantly becomes a favorite of mine. Though she appears briefly, like in the episode Blood Moon Ball, when the suave demonboy, Tom, appears at their school, and Ingrid is hoisted off her seat by his magic. Even Star Butterfly herself has gone Goth when she rebels against her dull destiny as the next queen.
.
2 Goth Girls from A Goofy Movie. While going to school, Max sings "After Today" showcasing different kinds of 90's kids, from skaters to Trekkies. There's a scene in the school bus with mostly cheer leaders "And after today, I'm gonna be cruisin", followed by two Goth girls on the front seat, singing "No more prep rallies to cut", then going blech!. What a refreshing sight to see those two.
.
Ophelia Ramirez from The Life and Times of Juniper Lee. With a world of monsters, a Goth is bound to be there. Ophelia is one of June’s best friends, opposite to happy-go-lucky Jody. To top the trope, the dorky Roger has a crush on her. But Ophelia is more of a punk or an ill-tempered Goth. She acts like a bully to her friends, but she still cherishes them. “Keep your stupid friends closer," she would say. One time, her mom tries to enroll her into ballet camp, but Ophelia manipulates her to choose drama camp instead.
.
Kara from American Dragon: Jake Long. She and her twin sister, Sara, are oracles. So, you might think Kara, the Goth one, would predict the bad future. But actually it's the other way around. Sara predicts the bad future, but she's still the optimist because she constantly tries to see the bright side of things. As for Kara, she predicts the good future but she's the pessimist because her power spoils life's good moments for her. And besides if everything is bright and good, you might get sick of it. In season 1, they look alike with different outfits and shade of red hair. But this picture of Kara is from season 2 where Sara is blonde, making their polarity more obvious.
.
Bleak Molly from Fish Hooks. In Freshwater High, the Goth fishes are usually in the background and shadows of the class. There's Razor V. Doom, their leader (has an admirable morbid voice), Stabbo (who's mistaken for an emo), an octo-punk, and Bleak Molly. They take a major role in The Dark Side of the Fish. Because Oscar's poetry is as morose, and hates bunnies, Razor invites him in their group. As for Bleak Molly, her poem is about rainbows. "Dear rainbows, please hang up and try your call again for I am busy."
.
Chloe Crashman from Carl². She’s the sister of the main character, Carl, who has a clone to do his errands and shenanigans at school and home. Like any other teenaged goth, Chloe likes to think of negative things and goes to dark parties in the cemetery. She hates anything sweet, and pretty much ignores her family. In some instances, it is shown that Chloe has a love–hate relationship with her doofus brother. She’s called the “damsel of darkness”, but ironically, her Goth boyfriend, Damien, is afraid of the dark. In season 2, she wears darker Goth clothes, hair and make-up.
.
Mirta from Winx. She stands out quite prominently from the other witches of Cloud Tower. She can produce pictures from emotions. Her sweet and shy nature makes her a target of ridicule and scorn from other witches, except for her roommate and childhood friend, Lucy. Mirta doesn't think the fairies as enemies, and even attempts to help Bloom on one occasion. At the end of the first season, she transfers to Alfea College, where it is unclear whether she is truly a fairy or witch. She grows wings, yet tends to revert to dark magic. It's a delight to see a fairy goth here.
.
Gigi from Grojband. This is an awesome music-centric cartoon that pays homage to indie rock bands, and our dreams of starting our own when we were kids. With all the concerts that are happening in each episode, there would be a lot of background characters. A recurring one is this Goth girl; though pale and cynic, she can go on full fangirl mode. One time, when she sees Nick Mallory's wonderful painting, she suddenly apologizes to her mother for everything on the phone.
.
Angel Jones from Zevo-3. It's a superhero kid show based on Sketchers sneakers. One of the protagonists is the sporty Ellie Martin, aka Elastika. Her two best friends is the gossip girl Cotilla and the goth girl Angel. Not much is known about the latter because she rarely appears; though she reveals in Paradise Bay that her worst fear is wearing something colorful. To think, her best friend has pink hair. Angel's everyday outfit is clearly inspired by Gothic Lolita, even her vintage beachwear. Plus, I love her impractical skeletal parasol. She is voiced by Pamela Adlon who also voiced Recess' punk girl, Spinelli.
