“ Have a berry nice day! ”
Strawberry Shortcake is the main protagonist of Strawberry Shortcake's Berry Bitty Adventures.
Strawberry Shortcake is a young, fair skinned girl with light pink lips and bright green eyes with freckles. Her curly waist-length hair is normally depicted as magenta or red, worn with a green and white striped bow adorned with a strawberry. At times she wears a pink strawberry hat.
Normally, she wears a pink dotted minidress with a white short-sleeved blouse depicting a strawberry surrounded by green diamonds over it, along with green an white striped tights, and pink Mary-Jane's.
During Seasons 3 and 4 Strawberry would sometimes pull her hair into a low ponytail. She also began wearing a pale pink and white striped tank-top with green short-shorts and pink flats during casual outings.
Sweet and upbeat, Strawberry remains positive and hopeful that thing's will always work out in the end. She befriends others with ease and is always willing to help out, and she always tries to put their needs ahead of her own because of how deeply she cares about ensuring their happiness. Even if it means sacrificing her own happiness and/or possibly even causing more problems for herself. However, she also seeks honesty and will not hesitate from telling someone the truth if she knows something is wrong, and while normally passive and supportive, she can be stern when called for.
Strawberry is also noted for her maturity and she normally remains level-headed. It takes something big to anger her or stress her out to the point of tears in comparison to the others. She tries her hardest to not let anything get her down and while she may not be as brainy as Blueberry, her selfless and open-minded innocence allows her to remain humble and modest. She prefers to plan things out rather than rush headfirst into situations; rather than be proven right, she simply wants everyone to be safe and have fun; which she considers to be her golden rule. If things become too stressful or inconvenient, she would speak with the one in charge, gently point out the problem and suggest a change in attitude.
It's these qualities that cause others to usually rely on her, choosing to make her the Lead of many projects or explorations unless she appoints the task to someone else that she feels may be better suited.
Prior to the cartoon series, in the pilot Strawberry was said to have been a published cookbook author.
In the pilot movie, her personality was mostly the same but she was heavily suspicious and concerned over various things, and eventually suffered a breakdown when things became too hard for her to handle. However, with the others reminding her that this was unlike her, she soon snapped out of it.
