Way to go, Danger-prone Daphne.

Velma Dinkley, The Grasp of the Gnome

Daphne Blake is a member of Crystal Cove's second incarnation of Mystery Incorporated.

She lived with her wealthy parents, Barty and Nan, and four of her five sisters in their extravagant mansion.

Physical appearance

Daphne is a teenaged female with shoulder-length orange-red hair and soft bangs, and lavender eyes. She wears pink lipstick and mascara. Her outfit consists of a long-sleeved purple mini-dress with lighter purple accents, a green scarf, pink tights, a light purple headband, and purple Mary Janes with bows.

When she had a temporary rockstar makeover, Daphne wore a black mini-skirt and corset (revealing her midriff), black structural collar on her neck, long black gloves, black thigh high platform boots and gold geometric hoop earrings. She had extensions in her hair and tied it up in a high pony tail. The Hex Girls also applied more mascara and blush, along with darker lipstick.[2]


Daphne's seafood allergy reaction in full effect.

Despite her family being fabulously wealthy, Daphne is not snobbish or vain, instead being trusting, enthusiastic, and kind. She can also sometimes be a helpless damsel-in-distress, clumsily getting caught by the monster on many occasions. She had a crush on Fred Jones, Jr., and got frustrated when he was initially oblivious to her affection. She has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate which sends her into a frenzy.[4]


Early life

Daphne wasn't able to fit into the "bridal air-lock", at the wedding of one of her sisters, because she had swollen up so much from eating shellfish.[5]

Daphne and the gang caught the Creeper when the Creeper, along with the kids, were trapped in hay-sacks, while Scooby-Doo was free to unmask the Creeper, who was actually Deacon Carlswell.[6]

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Season one

Face to face with the Slime Mutant.

She and the rest of the gang were arrested and placed in a cell after Sheriff Bronson Stone had had enough of them interfering in police affairs. After this her parents tried to dissuade her from associating with the gang because they saw them as a bad influence and her attraction to Fred who they didn't approve of.

The gang got caught in the Slime Mutant case which took them to the underground caverns below Fruitmeir's where she found a mysterious locket with a picture of a young teen couple. Despite their meddling, the gang proved that the Slime Mutant was just Prof. Emmanuel Raffalo.[7]

The gang went to Gatorsburg when Mr. E tipped them off on a counterfeiting job involving alligators. While there, the Mystery Machine's engine was stolen and they had to stay in a creepy hotel during the night. The boys and girls were separated, but that didn't stop Daphne from getting in Fred's room, but he was only concerned with showing her a book of his past traps.[8]

Man Crab pulls Daph under.

Daphne's parents set her up on a date with Rung Ladderton, an heir to a ladder company. Daphne felt awkward about it because of her feelings about Fred, but still obliged. Rung was only interested in himself and turned out to be the crystal doorknob thief and driver of the Ghost Truck.[9]

Daphne was still unable to woo Fred so she took to wearing a bikini and lotion (as Fred loves shiny things), which only brought the attention of the Man Crab who captured her. This made Fred feel odd, who didn't know what to do without her. Once the Daphne was freed and the mystery was over, she asked about him this after Velma told her, who thought it was, which made Fred relieved because he was worried it would affect their friendship. He told her he wouldn't have those feelings again, but Daphne was just coy about it, which only confused Fred.[5]

On one night she was babysitting Arthur Baywosenthal, he turned into a ferocious monster following the orders of Que Horrifico. But this was only Mary Anne Gleardan who had bribed the young children of Crystal Cove to take over the town.[3]

Performing "Trap of Love".

She was particularly jealous when new girl, Alice May, and Fred took an instant liking to each other and planned to go to the prom together. She was of course instantly suspicious of her and accused her of being the Ghost Girl.

On prom night she got to Fred before Alice did and asked him to go with her because it was something she had wanted to do for a long time. He was more than happy to do it for a 'friend'. Later Alice turned up at prom as the Ghost Girl and tried to kill Fred for dumping her. This was only a disguise though as revenge for sending her alleged father to jail. Once prom was over, the gang found a yearbook containing images of a group of mystery solvers similar to them; two of the kids were from Daphne's locket.[6]

She impersonated the leader singer of the Hex Girls in order to draw out the Phantom and capture him, but was instead captured herself. She was tied up, gagged, and suspended from the ceiling as Fred wished that he didn't care about her. She was mad, but they reconciled after she took on the guise of "Crush" and put her feelings into a song she wrote herself which she performed with the Hex Girls at a live concert.[2]

Daph reveals the Gnome's weakness.

Daphne revealed that the Gnome paralyzing pirate-clad consumers at a renaissance fair was ineffective against steel.[1]

During the Humungonauts case, Fred tried to organize the gang with uniforms after branding them as Mystery Incorporated, in honoring the missing group of mystery solving teens that came before them.[10]

The gang had to prove the innocence of Scooby when a dangerous robotic dog resembling him was damaging and terrorizing the town.[11]

Daph prepared to stake the vampire.

Daphne's mom was suspected of being a thieving vampire. During the case the boys and girls were dividing by the break up of Shaggy Rogers and Velma Dinkley. By the time the case was solved, the gang had grown distant toward each other.[12]

In preparing for their futures, the gang (separately) checked out Darrow University. During their time there they were compelled to work together when solving the Char Gar Gothakon case. Once done, their friendship was restored, even more so by the Darrow Family Archives.[13]

During the Cicada Creature case, Fred grew jealous of Daphne's attraction of Dr. Rick Yantz, which led to him finally going on a date with her.[14]

End to first date.

The gang had to back out the finals of a mystery solvers contest when Scooby was too sick to attend but at the end,she told scooby they moved the date so he could go.

He then went onto have a feverish dream, where Daphne, Fred, Shaggy and Velma were kidnapped and replaced with hamsters by Lord Infernicus who planned to send them to Africa.[15]

Fred was having difficulty adjusting to it just being him and Daphne, bringing along the gang on their dates. She was wooed by the romantic leader of a gang of bikers, purportedly orcs. Although flattered, she was only interested in Fred who joyously bragged about to him.[16]

The humans of town were overcome by a love spell by Aphrodite. Scooby and an unlikely ally freed the gang and together caught Aphrodite and saved the town. Daphne was worried that Fred didn't really mean the things he said under the love spell, but he did.[17]

The gang investigated the mansion of the Darrows which had been almost entirely swallowed up by an earthquake several years ago (where the Darrow University was built over it). Once down there, they were trapped by the surviving member who set elaborate traps for them to escape from, only the decrepid hermit had set them for their predecessors who he believed had returned. The traps Fred and Daphne had got into were meant for Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves, which Fred managed to get them free from.[18]

Daph pigs out at Vincent Van Ghoul's.

Daphne tried to warm her parents up to Fred which didn't go so well when it was revealed that he had booby trapped their mansion during a dinner for Mr. Wang which had been interrupted by the Red Wizard.[19]

Fred and Daphne's dinner date (at the Bloody Stake) had been interrupted by Shaggy and Scooby's plead for help when Vincent Van Ghoul's mansion was put on lockdown with the three of them trapped inside with Nightfright. After the case had been solved, Mr. Van Ghoul had them for dinner where a starved Daphne pigged out the only way Shaggy and Scooby could.[20]

When Velma received an online tip from Amy the siren, she called Daphne, but she was more busy on another date with Fred. She later joined Velma in the case of the haunted oil rig by the Fish Freaks uncovering them to disillusioned protesters, led by Daphne's old "comrade" Ernesto.[21]

She became concerned with Fred who was becoming obsessed with scheduling her entire day after his dad was being haunted by the Shadowy Figure.[22]

Fred's proposal.

The gang helped Sheriff Stone to get his job back by proving the Ghost of Dead Justice was a fraud. During the Dead Justice case Sheriff Stone took her seat next to Fred. Once the case had been solved, they had a date at Skipper Shelton's Clam Cabin. Fred said he didn't want anyone to take her place, asking if she'd ride shotgun with him forever, placing an onion ring on her finger. She rashly took this as a proposal (which he also didn't deny) and accepted, only if they got married after graduation. They then passionately kissed.[23]

She got worried about how to tell everyone, and complained about how all her sisters had big engagements (although none seemed to be married). The gang went to Darrow University to ask Professor H.P. Hatecraft to help them with a piece of the Planispheric Disk, during which they were attacked by the Obliteratrix assassin. Angel Dynamite ended up helping them out, who then revealed herself to be Cassidy Williams, one of the missing members of the old Mystery Incorporated.[24]

After they were caught snooping around Mayor Jones's office, they were sent to jail again. When their parents turned up, she announced their engagement to try and stop their parents from breaking up the gang, but this only made things worse and they dragged her away. The gang later sneaked out and searched beneath the Old Spanish Church, where they were attacked by the Freak of Crystal Cove, who was revealed to be Mayor Jones. Fred then found out that Mayor Jones wasn't even his real father, which tore Fred inside, so he called off the engagement and broke up the gang, so he could find his real parents, leaving her heartbroken. She blamed Velma for not preventing it if she had told them about Angel sooner.[25]

Season two

She rebounded while he was away, with Baylor Hotner, and rejected Fred and the gang when they got back together to capture Crybaby Clown. Without Daphne, their trap to capture Crybaby Clown failed because Fred had put her in his plan, believing she would return.[26]

Fred went back to school, thinking nothing had changed, until he saw Daphne and Baylor together.

While on the Baba Yaga/Baba Yaga House case, Fred called on her to confirm a piece of Fabergé egg the gang found. While there, he also failed to sweet talk her, as she hadn't forgiven him. Baylor then came to remind Daphne about the dolphins being let into the Jacuzzi. After talking about Baylor's "babs," she told Fred, Shaggy, and Scooby to leave. As he left, Fred turned around disappointingly, as they walked away in the opposite direction.[27]

Daphne was kidnapped by Crybaby Clown who had her bound and gagged on a plane heading to Hollywood. The gang saved her, and it was discovered that Baylor was Crybaby Clown all along. She was then invited back into the gang, which she accepted. Scooby then gave her a loving hug and the gang joined in.[28]

Daphne's return inadvertently kicked out her replacement, Hotdog Water. She thought the Dreamweaver case would take their minds of the guilt. During the case, she told Fred that she only wanted to stay friends, which made Fred sad.[29]

Her chocolate addiction returned due to Moder Bjorklund, which made her go crazy and grew blotchy zits.[4]

The gang stayed the night at the snowy Burlington Library when they got lost. She lit the terror wood before running a shower, which soon made her hallucinate that she saw Medusa, which she then ran away from by hiding in another room. It then made her think she ran into Fred, kissing him and snuggling by a fire. When the others found her together with Shaggy, it caused Fred and Scooby to freeze, but they were snapped out of it by Velma who told them they were dreaming. however, Shaggy mentioned how great it was, which Daphne didn't appreciate as it made Fred question him about it.[30]

Dr. Spartan came back into town during the Gluten Demon attack. During this time, Daphne was ready to get back together with Fred, but he just avoided it, until the case was solved, because he had seen how much Dr. Spartan missed his wife. He then put held Daphne's hand which made him feel better.[31]

When Fred told his feelings to her before the uprising against Pericles, she told him it was her fault because she put a lot of pressure on him, and they both kissed.[32]

In the post-Nibiru timeline (where everything was seemingly perfect), Fred's birth parents and her parents were planning their wedding, much to their surprise, while Daphne's parents thought highly of her and Fred and were disappointed in her underachieving sisters (excluding the Wedded Blake sister, whom wasn't seen or mentioned). The gang received a video message from the new Mr. E (Harlan Ellison), who revealed that he knew what had happened, because he was spared of the altering affects as he had been through several similar occurrences before. He told them he got them all accepted to Miskatonic University, where new mysteries awaited them. Giving a new resolve, they painted the new Mystery Machine and left Crystal Cove.[33]

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up

Insert details here.



  • Daphne's the only member of Mystery Incorporated confirmed to have any siblings, as she has at least five older sisters (four of whom are identical quadruplets) who, like Daphne, all have first names that start with "D." Delilah, one of the quadruplets, identifies Daphne as being the youngest when she refers to her as "baby sis."
  • Daphne's closet is huge, although she only wears one outfit.
  • She's had two boyfriends that turned out to be the culprit.
  • She's a talented singer, from impersonating Thorn to performing her own song.
  • She wore a magnifying glass shape locket that used to belong to Judy Reeves, until she was eventually able to return it to the latter.
  • Daphne is allergic to imitation animal skin and calamari (both of which helped the gang solve two separate mysteries). She has also shown to have an unhealthy addiction to chocolate - almost to the point of insanity.
  • When Daphne sews Freddy's new ascot in The Secret of the Ghost Rig, she hums the The New Scooby-Doo Movies theme song.
  • Just like the previous iterations of the character, Daphne can fit the helpless damsel-in-distress role, though not as frequent in this iteration as others.
  • In Battle of the Humungonauts, it's implied by Daphne that her mom, Nan Blake, suffers from some mental issues.
