Welcome to the ultimate pink spectacular, where we will count down the most powerful 24 pink hair characters in pop culture. The color pink is bursting with symbolism. It is the color of hope and is generally thought to have a calming effect, which could explain why so many heroic characters choose to rock pink hair.
It is also the color most strongly associated with femininity, which may be the reason why there are so many more female characters with pink hair than males on this list.
Also, quite a lot of pink hair characters come from anime, so we tossed their top representatives into the mix as well. From pink hair demons and fairies to superheroes, on this list, we count down the greatest badass 24 characters with pink hair. Are you ready?
The 24 Most Powerful Pink Hair Characters, Ranked
24/24. Strawberry Shortcake (Strawberry Shortcake)
Starting this list is the unofficial princess of Berry Bitty City, Strawberry Shortcake. She is the main protagonist of the Strawberry Shortcake TV Series of the same name. She lives in her berry bungalow with her baby sister Apple Dumplin’.
Her pink kitten Custard, and her energetic puppy Pupcake. Strawberry Shortcake spends a lot of her time in the simple pleasures of tending Strawberry berry vines. But, also loves hanging out with her friends Blueberry Muffin, Orange Blossom, Lemon Meringue, Raspberry Torte, and Plum Pudding.
Strawberry is cheerful and always ready to help her friends out of tough spots. Though she runs (and owns) the Berry Café and the Berry Bitty Market, she’s always preparing to lend a helping hand or go on an adventure. She is a true optimist and always sees big possibilities in everything.
Strawberry Shortcake has strawberry-pink hair, and green eyes and she usually wears a red knitted hat. Although Strawberry Shortcake is hard-working and very influential in Berry Bitty City, she is of course not a very powerful character in the physical sense.
23/24. Alice (Closer, 2004)
Another character with pink hair, Alice Ayres is a waitress and former stripper who lives in London, where she meets Dan Woolf after getting hit by a car. Dan becomes her lover and the two start living together. Alice settles down and comes to love Dan who becomes the author of a novel about Alice’s life. That is until he starts cheating on her with a photographer named Anna Cameron. Alice remains dedicated to Dan, even as he attempts to court Anna. She clings to their broken relationship, even as it tears them down from the inside out.
Alice is devoted but somewhat masochistic. In addition to deceiving herself, Alice also compulsively lies to others. She explains that “Lying is the most fun a girl can have… without taking her clothes off.”
While Alice’s closed-off personality means most of her past is shrouded in mystery, most know that she became a stripper at some point in her youth. It is also pretty clear that she enjoyed this work and the anonymity it provides – constantly being able to change her name and lie about stuff.
22/24. Effie Trinket (The Hunger Games)
Effie Trinket is a citizen of Capitol city whose main duty is to escort the participants of the Hunger Games of district 12 and be their advisor. At the start of the series, she is oblivious to the sorrows that fall upon District 12. Actually, she is the epitome of Capitol shallowness: she doesn’t question, she just does.
However, over the franchise we see her develop from a spoilt Capitolite to someone who becomes truly sympathetic to the people in the Districts. She worries over Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, and even tears for them when they enter the arena for the second year in a row.
She also realized that the Hunger Games is inherently wrong, and made the brave choice to rebel against the Capitol, even when her status as a Capitolite probably gave her some immunity if she had feigned ignorance of what was happening in the Districts.
A fan-favorite character in The Hunger Games franchise, Effie Trinket is most iconic with pink hair, speculated to be a wig, with a golden flower ornament.
21/24. Princess Bubblegum (Adventure Time)
Yep, she can be bossy and a know-it-all but for the most part, Princess Bubblegum is one of the most likable fictional characters ever! She is the ruler of the Candy Kingdom, which is entirely made up of candy and is primarily inhabited by the Candy People (who, you guessed it, are made up of a variety of “candy). Her position as the royal princess makes all the sense in the world to avid viewers of the show.
No one else would be able and maintain the well-being of so many candy people the way she does. She is basically a mix of bubblegum and human DNA and her body is most likely very sweet.
Princess Bubblegum is extremely intelligent. As she proved when she built her own lab and fashioned a formula to revive dead Candy People. She is also proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can project various forms quantities of candy through her hands.
Princess Bubblegum is tall and has pink skin and magenta-pink hair, which is made up of bubblegum. She also loves the color pink.
20/24. Stephanie (LazyTown)
Coming in at number twenty on the list of the topmost powerful 24 pink hair characters is LazyTown’s Stephanie. With her pink hair, pink dress, and three pink bracelets, Stephanie is often referred to as ‘Pinky’ by Trixie. Stephanie is a sweet, caring, optimistic, and quick-thinking 8-year-old girl who moved to LazyTown to live with her uncle (Milford Meanswell, the Mayor of LazyTown).
Because she wasn’t raised in LazyTown, Stephanie doesn’t struggle with basic health issues like the other children of the town, who rather stay at home playing video games and eating candy than participate in more active, energetic hobbies.
As someone who is athletic and an aspiring dancer, she was surprised by the inactivity of the residents and immediately started trying to make LazyTown a more active place to live. With the help of Sportacus, Stepanie always triumphs over any obstacles or antagonists by the conclusion of an episode.
Each episode of the show ends with Stephanie performing a song and dance routine to “Bing Bang”, the show’s ending theme In the first two seasons of LazyTown Stephanie was performed by actress Julianna Rose Mauriello and in the third and fourth seasons by Chloe Lang.
19/24. Ai Fuyuumi (Oreshura)
Ai from the anime series Oreshura is Eita’s (the main character’s) “fiancée” and childhood friend. Out of the four girls who are fighting for Eita’s love in the story, she considers herself to be the one for Eita because she confessed to him while they were in kindergarten. They even signed an improvised marriage registration, making them engaged, although Eita didn’t understand the concept of marriage.
She often has delusions of herself and Eita as a couple and writes down all her delusions in a notebook. She calls Eita Takkun, a nickname that she devised when she was little. AI is an uptight and by-the-book member of the Student Council’s Hallway Monitoring Committee
She’s a good student, cute and talented at cooking, but also short-tempered, as she frequently has outbursts/fits of rage and shouting. Ai is a beautiful popular girl. She has long pink hair that has some of the hair strands tied up with a red ribbon and violet eyes.
Cute fact – One of Ai’s prized possessions is a teddy bear which she named “Murata”. She always hugs it when she goes to bed and brings it along when she’s on vacation.
18/24. Toadette (Super Mario)
Another character with pink hair, Toadette made her debut appearance in the 2003 video game Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. After that, Toadette appeared in many other games, mostly spin-offs, either as a playable character, a storyline character, or a guide/host. She is a member of the Toad species which are mushroom-humanoids and lives in the Mushroom Kingdom. She is Toad’s best friend (or possibly his sister).
From tracking treasure to crafting paper, Toadette is always ready to face a challenge. She is usually depicted as a timid yet cheerful and sensitive person who has concerns for animals and is also a musician.
In the Mario Kart Series, Toadette’s special item is a Golden Mushroom with a crown on its head, letting her use it as a regular mushroom speed boost continuously until the Golden Mushroom’s time limit runs out.
In the Mario Party Series, Toadette has the Triple ‘Shroom Orb, which allows her to hit two dice blocks for three turns, allowing her to reach almost anywhere on the entire board quickly.
Toadette has a pink cap and two pink pigtails with white spots on them. She also wears a pink dress, a red vest, white trousers, and brown shoes.
17/24. Flutterina (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power)
Flutterina is a character that is actually an alter ego of Double Trouble, a shapeshifter mercenary and temporarily a spy for the Horde.
She was specifically created for the purpose of infiltrating The Rebellion and it’s very likely she does not exist as a separate person prior to Double Trouble making her up. She pretended to be an alone child fleeing from the horde and the rebels didn’t suspect her at the beginning.
Flutterina appears as a young girl with pointed ears, yellow and pink wings, and magenta hair was done up into two buns, a short fringe in the front, and longer side bangs framing the sides of her face.
It is unknown if Flutterina is able to use her wings to fly, although she appears to be able to move them on several occasions. While Flutterina is merely a disguise rather than a real person, Double Trouble creates an entire personality for them to remain inconspicuous. Hence, Flutterina is depicted as an edgy person, prone to speaking very quickly.
16/24. Aelita Schaeffer (Code Lyoko)
Aelita is a 14 years old human girl, the daughter of Franz Hopper, creator of both the virtual world Lyoko and, incidentally, X.A.N.A, a malevolent program that is set on destroying mankind. When Aelita was 10, Franz sent Aelita to Lyoko to keep her away from X.A.N.A. She later became a member of the Lyoko Warriors, a team of teenagers who oppose X.A.N.A., by accessing the powers of the Supercomputer to battle X.A.N.A. on Lyoko and beyond.
Aelita’s deep connection with Lyoko, which is due to the fact that she has one of the keys of Lyoko (the other one is Franz), makes her an especially valuable member of the team. She is the only one who can deactivate X.A.N.A.’s towers at will and stop its attacks on Earth.
Among Lokyo’s Powers is the ability to manipulate the landscapes and terrain of Lyoko or create invulnerable clones of herself. She can use this ability even to lock monsters temporarily in blocks of ice. Aelita’s hair is hot pink both on Lokyo and in the real world.
15/24. Mei Hatsume (My Hero Academia)
A student of U.A High Schools’s Department of Support, Mei Hatsume from the anime My Hero Academia is a superstar inventor and a very hot anime girl. Although many of her inventions don’t work properly or are even dangerous, others are really useful support items.
Actually, Hatsume heavily relies on her gadgets (which she refers to as her “super cute babies”), and she has quite a few of them, such as a Jetpack, Hover Soles, Wire Arrows, and a Power Suit. Outside of her high intelligence, Mei typically acts as a support rather than facing battles directly.
However, she proves to be a capable combatant, as demonstrated in the Sports Festival, where she managed to easily evade Lida’s attacks, all while trying to advertise her “babies” to her possible sponsors.
As a character, Mey is incredibly arrogant and blatantly selfish but somehow does it in such a way that it’s charming. As someone who’s wonderfully goal-oriented yet liberally creative, she’s easy to like as a character. Maybe this is why she is one of the most popular characters in the My Hero Academia series.
Mey has beautiful salmon-pink hair, which is usually shoulder-length, styled into thick dreadlocks and side-swept to her right.
14/24. Yuno Gasai (The Future Diary)
Yuno may look like the ultimate cute anime girl Yandere (A character, typically a female, who becomes violently possessive of a love interest) But she’s actually a crazy girl! She’s batshit crazy, delusional, obsessed with Yukiteru Amano (the main protagonist), and will go to any length to be with him, to the point of killing his loved ones and even harming/manipulating him. And it’s not played for laughs. What she does is seriously messed up.
On the one hand, she’s a good fighter and provides good action scenes in the series, as well as being smart and clever. On the other hand, she’s not invincible; she can be beaten, both physically and emotionally. And she’s extremely insecure due to the number of times she was abandoned.
Actually, Yuno is a tragic character. When all is said and done, she’s more than a ruthless killer and obsessive stalker; she’s a poor girl who suffered immensely throughout her life. At the end of the series, though, we see her grow and eventually change for the better.
This is all we’re going to say about this teenage girl with pink eyes and long pink hair. Now, go watch the show.
13/24. Pinkie Pie (My Little Pony Friendship is Magic)
Pinkie Pie is a female Earth pony with blue eyes and a fluffy, hot-pink mane. She’s adorable, happy-go-lucky, weird in all the right ways, quite funny when she wants to be and is always looking for ways to put smiles on ponies’ faces. She can definitely be a bit much at times, what with her penchant for jokes and gags, somewhat clingy nature, and occasional obliviousness to others’ feelings, but no pony is perfect. At the end of the day, everybody knows she means well. Pinkie Pie has lots of skills and powers. She frequently performs songs and plays a variety of musical instruments.
She’s great at cooking and at ice-skating (she’s been skating since she was “an itty-bitty little-wittle Twinkie-Pinkie”. She can teleport and has somewhat precognitive abilities, allowing her to predict events in the near future, which she calls her “Pinkie Sense.”
Pinkie has small-scale Reality Warping powers and proved that when she was able to stop her falling momentum at a moment’s notice, defying the laws of physics. Also, she has a Regeneration factor, as seen when she could put herself back together after her body and head fell apart. In short, you don’t want to mess with Pinkie.
12/24. Tetora (Log Horizon)
Tetora is a Human player who was trapped in the world of Theldesia when the Apocalypse that trapped all players inside the popular Elder Tale game struck. As a result, she found herself in her female avatar body despite actually being a man in real life. However, she seems comfortable with her new body and even prefers it the way it is. Tetra refuses to answer questions of his gender and will only reply with vague answers that really solve nothing.
Tetora is a self-proclaimed “Galaxy Idol,” which is the highest title you can get as a role-playing gamer, and has equipment and outfit befitting one. Her equipment includes the Seventh Shooting Star, the Zankyou Jewel Rod, and the Twinkle StarVest.
She has a great deal of experience in the Elder Tale game. As a character, Tetora is a playful person who loves to tease others. She is very confident in her abilities and determined to help others. Tetra is a sixteen-year-old aesthetic girl with pink, medium-long hair and several pony-tails. Weird fact – Tetora insists on calling herself a girl, but the mobile game lists her (in-game) gender as male.
11/24. Zero Two (DARLING in the FRANXX)
Zero Two from the anime DARLING in the FRANXX is a human-klaxo Sapien hybrid. She is a member of the APE Special Forces, primarily fighting on the front lines. Zero Two was trained to pilot the FRANXX armor with the purpose of protecting the plantations and the adult population from the klaxosaurs. Despite being accustomed to being alone and fighting solo, Zero Two took interest in Hiro (the other main protagonist of the series and an unpopular guy) and offered him an opportunity to pilot with her, making Hiro her new partner.
Gradually, Zero Two developed romantic feelings toward Hiro. Her love for Hiro is so pure and strong that she sacrifices herself just to be with him. In the end, Hiro and Zero Two sacrifice themselves to destroy the VIRM species’ home planet and save the future of their friends and planet, and they are reincarnated into human children 1,000 years later. Zero Two has waist-length pink hair with straight bangs covering her forehead a pair of red horns on her head and a white limiter headband over her horns.
10/24. Tecna (Winx Club)
Tecna is the Fairy of Technology. She is part of the original all-female superhero team Winx Club and is an alumna of the Alfea College for Fairies. Tecna is often relied on as the group’s tactician thanks to her high intelligence. Her ability to keep a cool even in times of great stress, and her logical personality.
Over time, Tecna develops from a confused girl to an active member of the team. She is a kind of tomboyish girl who always got information that would help the girls.
She has the power over all technology. Since the Winx universe is very futuristic and uses lots of that, she can find anybody anywhere.
Moreover, she can see what they’re doing and her spells are powerful. She can create shields of energy, digital cages, and walls of magic energy. Tecna can also throw blasts of electricity which can stop a person or cause them to explode. She is also linked to all computers. Her magic is very useful in keeping her friends out of danger and to sense some near danger.
Tecna has pink-colored hair which is often styled in an asymmetrical bob-cut on the right side with a single small hair strand sticking up.

9/24. Ram (Re:Zero)
Making it to number ten, Ram from the anime series Re: zero is Rem’s sister and one of the twin maids working for Margrave Roswaal L Mathers, lord of the Roswaal Mansion. When Ram was a child, she lost her horn during an attack on her village by the Witch Cult.
Since horns were like organs for Oni, being without one meant she had to suffer constant pain. Had it not been for a passing mage at the time whom they came to know as Roswaal Ram and her sister would not have survived the attack.
Ram has Clairvoyance. It enables her to synchronize with the vision of those who have the same wavelength, allowing her to overlap her vision with practically anyone she wishes to. Ram is also a magic user, able to use Wind Magic. She is mentioned to be relatively skilled in it. Before her horn was sliced, Ram’s wind magic was incredibly more powerful than it is now.
Ram has medium-length light pink hair that covers her left eye. She also has hair clips towards the right side of her hair, a flower-shaped ribbon on the same side of her hair, and a maid hairband. She is confident, a bit cheeky, and takes pride in what she does!
8/24. Mamika Kirameki (Re:Creators)
Another character with pink hair, Mamika Kirameki was the protagonist of a magical girl anime series called Magical Slayer Mamika, before she was brought to the real world by Altair, who wants to destroy the real world (the Creators’ world). Wh
ile not that dangerous in her world, Mamika’s attacks are deadly in the real world. She does not initially hesitate to use violence in solving her problems, due to the fact that her world of origin has very few consequences for physical trauma. However, when Mamika first realizes the lethal potential that her powers have in the Creators’ world, she becomes more hesitant to engage in combat.
Mamika doesn’t like fighting and thus prefers to win over her enemies using negotiation. Mamika can transform into her ‘Magical Slayer Mamika’ form. She can use her wand to form a large spell circle with heart shapes that smashes into her opponent and throws them backward. This attack is called “Magical Splash”. She also has an attack called the Magical Splash Flare that is a lot like the “Magic Splash”, but also creates a huge explosion rather than just smashing into the opponent and throwing them back. She can also fly.

7/24. Pixie (X-Men)
Megan Gwynn, aka Pixie, is a hybrid mutant and fairy from Welsh who enrolled at Xavier Institute. She has colorful insectoid wings that allow her to fly. Also, her mutation allows her to produce a “pixie dust” which causes powerful visual and auditory hallucinations in her victims. After a clash with Magik, who took a part of Pixie’s soul, Pixie gained the ability to use magic and a magical weapon called the “Souldagger”, which she can summon from nothingness at will. With the Souldagger Pixie can strike supernatural creatures or objects.
Her main use of magic is a massive teleportation spell, which makes her a key asset to various X-Men missions, as she can teleport herself and large groups over vast distances and across dimensions.
The Marvel female superhero is a fan-favorite character among the X-Men. Cheerful and friendly, Pixie has always been among the more open of the younger generation of mutants. She tries to avoid any tensions among her friends (except for her dislike of Magik, of course, but who can blame her for that?) Pixie’s trademarks are her pink hair and colorful pixie wings.
6/24. Starfire (Teen Titans Go!)
Intergalactic Princess Koriand’r from planet Tamaran, aka Starfire, is a member of the Teen Titans, a team of teenage superheroes who save the day. Starfire is new to earth and has trouble adapting to Earth life and fitting in.
She has many devastating superpowers, courtesy of her Tamaranian background and experiments by the Psion scientists, such as flying ten times faster than the speed of light, super strength, outer-Space Adaptation (the ability to survive in space without a spacesuit), and the ability to shoot a variety of green ultraviolet energy beams (called Starbolts).
Although Starfire can demolish anyone who crosses her, she prefers peace and using words to solve conflicts. However, the belligerent ways of Tamaran have definitely influenced Starfire, as she occasionally becomes very violent, as she demonstrated when she wounded all four Titans after they briefly lost her pet moth caterpillar, Silkie. It is clear that Robin, the leader of the team, has a crazy crush on Starfire who sometimes makes fun of him and punches him.
With Starfire’s stunning green eyes, slightly tanned skin, and gorgeous hot pink hair, no wonder many teenage heroes have a hard time keeping their eyes off of Starfire (especially Robin).

5/24. Chibiusa (Sailor Moon)
Number five on our list, Chibiusa from the anime Sailor Moon is the civilian identity of Sailor Chibi Moon (Renamed Rini in English adaptations). Chibiusa comes from the future in the Silver Millennium, where she is the daughter of both Usagi (the legendary warrior Sailor Moon) and Mamarou (Tuxedo Mask).
She is also the future princess of Crystal Tokyo. Chibiusa traveled back in time from 30th-century to 20th-century Tokyo to find the Silver Crystal, which she believed would save her mother in the future.
As the “Sailor Soldier of the Future Moon”, Chibi Moon possesses several powers and attacks, such as the “Pink Sugar Heart Attack” Or the combined attack “Rainbow Double Moon Heart Ache”. Like her mother, Chibiusa’s powers are primarily centered on love, and she fights for love and justice.
Chibiusa looks to be about six years old in the beginning. She can be good, educated, and sophisticated, but she is fierce when she feels that she has been wronged. Her biggest dream is to become a lovely, graceful lady.
She has pink hair, a guardian device called Luna P, and a grey kitten named Diana. Her hair buns give the impression of rabbit ears. This, coupled with her red eyes, makes her resemble a pink rabbit.

4/24. Gowther (The Seven Deadly Sins)
In The Seven Deadly Sins, Gowther – the Goat’s sin of lust – is revealed to actually be a doll created by a powerful mage. He was created in the likeness of the mage’s old lover, thus having a feminine appearance, even though Gowther is a male (the mage gave it a male body so he would feel no attraction for his “child”).
As a doll, Gowther does not possess a heart. Hence, he cannot read a room, which oftentimes has him come in as comic relief in stressful situations. As a member of the Seven Deadly Sins, Gowther is, of course, very powerful.
Due to having a doll body, Gowther has pseudo-immortality that enabled him to survive otherwise fatal injuries. His inherent magical power is an invasion. It gives him the ability to manipulate memories and the soul.
However, with a power level of 35,400m, he is probably the weakest sin compared to the rest of the Seven Deadly Sins. Gowther is an anime girl with glasses, she has amber eyes and pink hair that reaches just past his jaw.
3/24. Wanda (The Fairly OddParents)
We’re down to the top three! Wanda Venus Fairywinkle-Cosma is one of Timmy and Chloe’s fairy godparents. She is married to Cosmo, who is also a fairy, but unlike him, she tends to be more responsible and is unwilling to grant dumb wishes (but is usually forced to grant them anyway or Cosmo grants them instead). She also has a son with Cosmo, Poof. When Cosmo and Timmy are in trouble, Wanda is always there. She is the best Fairy Godmother Timmy could ever want!
With it, she can grant wishes, within the limits of Da Rules the rule book, written by the Fairy Council, which she must follow. As a fairy, Wanda has fairy magic, which requires the use of a magic wand in order to perform it.
The wishes can range from the smallest of tasks to worldwide reality changes. Besides reality-warping/toon force, she can teleport herself or an object to nearly any place they want. She can shapeshift and of course, fly, using her wings (though she usually doesn’t flap her wings yet still can maintain flight).
Wanda has wavy pink hair and pink eyes and has a crown floating above her head at all times.

2/24. Super Saiyan Rosé (Dragonball)
Our next entry on this list, Super Saiyan Rosé is the standard Super Saiyan form of Goku Black. Explanation – Goku Black was supposed to be the opposite of Goku, while still being him (to be an evil version of the main character Goku, just like The Flash and The Reverse Flash).
Super Saiyan Rosé is Goku Black’s version of the Super Saiyan Blue form. That way, Goku Black could become a Super Saiyan like Goku, only with a different color than Goku. Super Saiyan Rosé is more powerful than Super Saiyan Blue because not really for its general base strength but more so for its adaptability.
From what we’ve gathered, Rosé should be 1.2x stronger than Blue. This is evidenced when Goku Black just got the transformation he utterly destroyed Goku and Vegeta alike in their Super Saiyan Blue transformations. It wasn’t until Vegeta trained that Super Saiyan Blue became even with Super Saiyan Rosé.
In the Super Saiyan Rosé state, Goku Black’s hair takes on a pastel pink color with faint white highlights, his eyebrows match the color of his hair, and his eyes change to light gray. Hope we managed to explain things.

1/24. Milim Nava (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime)
Our top pink hair character pick is Demon Lord Milim Nava, one of the strongest and oldest demon lords known. She is a Dragonoid, an offspring between a True Dragon and a Human, and the only Dragonoid known to exist.
Her nickname “Destroyer” is not just for show. With the threat level of “Catastrophe”, she is a demon lord one should never fight against. Her destructive ability is a Large Star Level (she obliterated Lucia’s castle defenses, which would remain intact even if it were attacked with stars). Milim’s technique (called “Dragon Nova”) is the perfected form of Gravity Collapse, which is a localized black hole.
Yep, she’s that powerful! Milim is the daughter of the first true dragon Veldnava who was previously omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. We guess that explains her unbelievable power).In her normal form, Milim looks like a regular human teenage girl, with glossy pink hair tied in twin tails.
She also has a Battle Mode in which she looks more like a Dragonoid, with a horn on her forehead and wings.
