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 upholding fascination for 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. In Tim Burton's wicked film, Beetlejuice is the antagonist, who ends up nearly marrying a disgusted Lydia. In the animated 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 becomes the grand winner of Season 1. 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 mΓ©lange 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 obtained from the vampires she hunted in the past. She was then bitten by the Vampire King whilst defeating him, and became immortal. Marceline is known for her musical talent with her axe bass, and numerous alternative outfits.

  3. I actually never got into Danny Phantom because I thought the humor was trying way too hard to be for kids, BUT I think Sam made me want to like it more than I did. She was really cool.

  16. Not too wise, girl.
    Joining a filthy coven
    fulla lesBfriends and queers
    is the surest way of being
    friends with Satan...
    and if you're part of it
    too long, Satan shall drag-you-down
    kickinNscreamin to thy death,
    though very, very nicely.
    FACT: covens art of the occult,
    meaning literally HIDDEN EYE
    (OCCULAR means EYE, so OCCULTISH
    means 'hidden from' the world, secret).

    Precisely what Satan wants:
    his demons creep around in the dark
    like asswholes, searching for souls.

    Lemme show you the Way out:
    Dunno how important Seventh-Heaven
    is to you, earthling... yet, if we DO NOT strive for that, or Purgatory, you for one shall be condemned to the Abyss o'Misery after this existence finite. And I wanna make DAMM sure you're going Upstairs with me. So, follow along if Seventh-Heaven is #1 on your list; if not, I fear for your indelible soul, lil one. Why? Why should I care about the salvation of the human race? Yes, I was an NDE -AND- I saw the Celestial City from far away. Aint that Treason enuff, earthling?

    No, you DO NOT need to be a bro/nun living a cloistered life; however, what you must do is say these TWO things and totally mean them:

    You believe in Jesus?
    You love everyone else?
    If answered YES to both,
    you'll join this sinfull mortal Upstairs for the most wildchild experience for time without end.

    God bless your indelible soul.
    cya Upstairs someday...
