And so, once again, the day is saved, thanks to...The Powerpuff Girls!
~ Narrator's end tagline

The Powerpuff Girls are a group of puffed human girls and the titular protagonists of the Cartoon Network series of the same name. The de fecto group members are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. Their arch nemesis is Mojo Jojo. They are interestingly daughters to Mojo, because he accidentally created them, but also became mutated in the same room as them, and by the same ingredient known as Chemical X .

Creation

In Powerpuff Girls, the girls were created by Professor Utonium out of "sugar, spice, and everything nice", as well as the accidental addition of Chemical X, due to being accidentally bumped by his then lab assistant, Jojo, (later to become the evil villain Mojo Jojo.) After the events of Powerpuff Girls Movie, the Powerpuff Girls "dedicated their lives to fighting crime and the forces of evil."

In Powerpuff Girls Z, Peach (not in the original series) threw a rice cake into a batch of Chemical X, turning it into a new substance which would be named Chemical Z by Professor Utonium. Ken (Utonium's son) uses the Chemical Z to destroy a giant glacier caused by global climate change. However, the impact of Chemical Z caused several black and white lights to appear in the Tokyo sky. Three ordinary girls, Momoko Akatsutsumi ("Hyper" Blossom), Miyako Gotokuji ("Rolling" Bubbles), and Kaoru Mastubara ("Powered" Buttercup), were engulfed in white lights and were transformed into the Powerpuff Girls Z. During the anime, the girls most often fight people, animals and objects affected by the black lights and Him's black particles.

Appearance in The Powerpuff Girls

The Powerpuff Girls are drawn with physical traits that make them exaggeratedly cute. They wear dresses with a black belt, white stockings and black Mary Jane shoes. They have large eyes, oval-shaped heads, stubby arms and legs, and, although they are able to hear, smell, touch and hold, have no necks, noses, ears, fingers, or toes (often joked about in the series). They stand 2' 3" and weigh 61 lbs. Although they are superheroes they greatly resemble seemingly harmless little girls.

Whether they actually have the aforementioned features or not is not fully clear; in the episode "Criss Cross Crisis," when the Girls switch bodies with other people in Townsville, Buttercup, who had swapped bodies with Professor Utonium, complained that her hand did not work when trying to pick up the phone (meaning that the girls' fingerless hands could pick things up at will.) However, in the same episode, Bubbles, in the Mayor's body, is seen using a toothbrush without trouble, and the characters who are in the girls' bodies have no issue holding objects. In the episode "Curses," all three of the girls play "rock-scissors-paper," and can apparently distinguish who chose what. Additionally, Bubbles counts on her unseen fingers in the episode "Mo Job" and Buttercup snaps her fingers in "Boogie Frights." However, in "Oops, I Did It Again," the Professor dreams of normal versions of the girls, "The Run-of-the-Mill Girls," each with the features clearly.

Trivia

  • They are completely similar to Supergirl from the DC Universe.
  • They can sometimes be anti-heroes and have antagonistic roles. Examples include:
    • Beating up Mojo Jojo viciously for stealing their candy almost crossing the Moral Event Horizon.
    • Tormenting Mojo when he was babysitting them.
    • Terrorizing the sandman in his dreams for making them fall asleep.
    • Beating up Rainbow the Clown rather than forgiving him after he was turned into Mr. Mime.
    • Bullying the boys at their school, even the Professor and the Mayor.
    • Mistaking their substitute teacher for a villain and tried to destroy him.
    • Fighting over the key of the world rather than using it for responsibility.
