Daphne Blake is a fictional character in the Scooby-Doo franchise. She's normally a likable character in the franchise. Unfortunately, in Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, this Daphne was badly flanderized.

Why She Sucked

NOTE: This article only applies to the character as depicted in Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

  1. Her redesign is awful and looks very little to nothing like her original counterpart, and instead looks more like Warner Bros. Animation's bad attempt to imitate Seth MacFarlane's art style like Family Guy, American Dad!, The Cleveland Show or Brickleberry art style.
    • Speaking of her redesign, it is unfitting in the Scooby-Doo franchise, as it fits more into an adult cartoon or parody.
  2. She was horribly flanderized from a smart and charming girl into an annoying, bumbling and idiotic Mary Sue.
    • For examples, she wears a fake beard and refuses to take it off.
    • Daphne may not be the smartest member of the Mystery Inc., but at least she did had some degrees of intelligence and is nowhere a complete moron like in this version.
  3. She also became a huge Mary-Sue, where nothing bad happens to her, and she never gets kidnapped unlike her original counterpart (except in Party Like It's 1899).
  4. Her humor has become more unfunny, pathetic, and cruel.
  5. She has many laughably bad quotes, such as "Oh, so Shaggy can have a dog, but I can’t have a bunny, a pig, a goat, a duck, and a lobster?"
  6. Like the rest of the show, she is mediocrely animated and her character movements are sub-par.
  7. While Grey DeLisle reprised her role and still greatly voices her for the most part, Daphne’s voice can get on some viewer's nerves a bit, as she tends to talk way too much and acts way too bubbly & fast when she's doing it, and even at some point's never shuts up, which can make her kind of annoying at times.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. She was a much more likable character in all other entries outside Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! and has massively redeemed herself outside of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!.
  2. Despite her noticeably dumber portrayal, she's still one of the nicest members in the gang.
  3. There was at least an attempt to give Daphne more of a personality beyond being the "rich, pretty damsel-in-distress who exists purely for fanservice", albeit with botched results. But other Scooby-Doo shows have done this attempt correctly like Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, What's New, Scooby-Doo?, and Scooby Doo and Guess Who?.
  4. She still has some genuinely funny moments.
  5. Grey DeLisle still does a very great job voicing her.

Trivia

  • A lot of fans really appreciated Daphne Blake in Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?, because the producers made her smart again and removed any traces of being a Mary-Sue to make her a more likable character.
