In Memory Of. . . .

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

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 the gang then hosts a party in Laetitia’s old Victorian house to gain her more friends. 
.
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.
.
Morose in "I'll Be Home For Misery" (Ruby Gloom). Here Misery hosts a family reunion. The attendants are all female; they share the same face structure and first letter on their names. They even have their own disaster to suffer from. Morose is the one closest to being a melodramatic 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 due to their genetic bad luck.
.
Argent in "Calling All Titans!" (Teen Titans). Aside from Raven, Argent is another dark and gothy superheroine. She even asks 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 Nocturna and the others.
.
Haiku in "Dance, Dance Resolution" (The Loud House). Since Lincoln has no date, Lucy arranges for him to take her friend to the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Haiku is as Goth and poetic as Lucy, and a fellow member of the Morticians' Club. During the dance, she would just seat on the bleachers, and read a book. She interprets Lincoln's recital of Jack and Jill as deep-seated. And she can create a grim reaper shadow with her hands. Later in the episode, Lincoln's nerdy friend, Clyde, pairs up with Haiku. Both bond over their unrequited love for someone older. Hers looks like Bram Stoker's Dracula (Gary Oldman, 1992).
.
Donna in "Separate Vocations" (The Simpsons). In this old episode, Lisa's aptitude test reveals she is destined to be a homemaker. She becomes disenchanted, and loses interest in her academic performance. She enters the bad girls' bathroom, and meets a Goth and a grunge girl smoking. Lisa earns their admiration by suggesting worse pranks to pull off. The Goth girl is briefly seen again when Bart monitors the school hallways, and calls out to her, "Hey Donna, who loves you, baby?"
.
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.
.
Cassandra in "Rednecks and Broomsticks" (The Simpsons). Inspired by the movie The Craft, Lisa delves into the occult. Cassandra is a part of a Wiccan group who invites Lisa to join them. Lisa is skeptical at first, yet their spells come true. But ever-religious Flanders (who also thinks Harry Potter should go to hell) gets the coven arrested. During the court trial, Cassandra is addressed as Gwendolyn Nightshadow. But she admits it's "not even my real name. It's Stacey... Stacey Deathsatan."
.
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 phase. 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."

  1. dude you listed all of my favorite characters on the show. I especially loved laetilia from as told by ginger and wished she was shown more often (she was so cool). I also loved malaria from billy and mandy (even if she ran out scared in the end). Invader zim will always be the best show ever, right along with hey arnold.

    i too liked the lizz and wish she stood out later on (even if she was mean.)
