In the original series, she is a spoiled and rich girl who wants to be a Powerpuff Girl. However, she has no powers of her own, and instead uses her father's money to buy weapons to destroy the Powerpuff Girls because she can't become one.
She debuted in "Stuck Up, Up and Away," where Blossom explains that being a Powerpuff Girl is not about getting what she wants, having the best stuff or being popular or powerful, but about using one's own unique abilities to help people and the world. Princess buys a suit of powered armor that makes her seem invincible, but in a fight that emulates Goku, Blossom rallies the girls and destroys the armor. Princess swears she'll be out of jail shortly, but then again, no Townsville villain seems to stay in for long.
Princess tries again repeatedly: In one instance, she hires Mojo Jojo, and even gains Chemical X powers like the girls, but their savvy plus the egos of the villainous allies rob her of victory and powers. In an episode that paid tribute to the 60's band The Beatles, she, Mojo, Fuzzy Lumpkins, and HIM formed the Beat-Alls, who nearly owned the city and the girls, till a 'Yoko scheme' (a parody of how some people believe the real Beatles parted ways) broke them up. She also once simply had her father buy the City Of Townsville so she could be Mayor and outlaw crime-fighting, a scheme which fell apart when the girls legally robbed her of every last possession. In likely her most vicious petty scheme, she tricked a neglected friend the girls had made into stealing, just so she could report this to the girls and seem like an ally worthy of joining them. Though Blossom remains her archenemy, it is Buttercup who despises her the most. Princess is also featured in any 'crowd of villains' episode, most notably one where the villains send booby-trapped birthday gifts (that one and all epic fail) to the girls.
In Twas the Fight Before Christmas
Princess tricks Santa into giving her what she wants most and into thinking the Powerpuff Girls and the rest of the children of the world were naughty by altering his lists. Princess' reputation preceded her, though, since a confused Santa noted she was among the few whose name was engraved in 'The Naughty Plaque' (along with the show's animators and even Adolf Schicklegruber!)
Instead of wanting to be a Powerpuff Girl, she instead wants to be noticed. Her powers are based on her wants to be noticed, but can't remember the evil crimes she committed after transforming. However, she tries to get the girls in trouble at school, during their normal life.
Morbucks wanted to be the only Powerpuff Girl.
In The Powerpuff Girls (1998)
Morbucks is extremely spoiled, cruel, mean, selfish, possessive, obstreperous, uncontrollable, materialistic, unscrupulous, calculating, egocentric, churlish, unpleasant, deceiving, baleful, evil, jealous, greedy, loud, arrogant, manipulative, repugnant, and nasty, especially for a little girl. She is subject to violent temper tantrums when she wants something, which is about when her father will hand her a large wad of cash or even a suitcase full of dollar bills to get her silenced. When denied of what she wants, she becomes emotionally distressed and throws a huge temper tantrum, which irritates everyone around her, including her father.
She is also (very importantly) obsessed with becoming a Powerpuff Girl. Unfortunately, she doesn't have real superpowers or crime-fighting experience, which ultimately leads to her becoming angry at The Powerpuff Girls for not letting her become one, hence only willing to become one for cosmetic reasons (since the trio are loved by the whole town). In her own words, she decides that, "If I can't be a Powerpuff Girl, then there won't be any Powerpuff Girls!".
However, she loves something other than herself and destroying the Powerpuff Girls: Cash. As shown, she will only love her father if he gives her anything she wants if she asks sweetly (which she doesn't most of the time) or throws a bratty, obnoxious, and troublesome tantrum for it. At one point, her father taps the rolled-up morning paper against his palm, indicating that he gives her firm discipline despite the great extent to which he spoils her financially.
In The Powerpuff Girls Z
Unlike her 1998 series counterpart, Morbucks does not want to become a member of the main superhero team, but rather, be noticed more by others. This motive is caused by the fact that her parents pay more attention to her older sister, and thus it can be said that this version of Princess Morbucks is (to an extent) sympathetic and compassionate.
In The Powerpuff Girls (2016)
Like her original counterpart, Morbucks is abusive, precocious, narcissistic, contentious, villainous, deceitful, pompous, petty, spiteful, malevolent, reproachful, argumentative, opprobrious, resentful, uncaring, aggressive, uncompromising, and vituperative. She loves flaunting her wealth and using her vast riches to get whatever she wants. She brags and usually rubs her richness and fame in people's faces (specifically the Powerpuff Girls). Like her counterpart in the original show, she mostly uses the money to give her fake super powers and to pay others to get to become a Powerpuff Girl.
In The Powerpuff Girls, Morbucks a little girl who is the same age and same height as the Powerpuff Girls. She has small black eyes, three freckles on each cheek, and has orange hair with curly puffs on the sides.
In her normal clothes, she wears a white collared shirt underneath a yellow sweater, a purple skirt, white leggings, and dark purple Mary Janes.
When a Powerpuff GIrl, she wears a big gold crown with a violet gem in the center, a yellow dress with a black strap (like the Powerpuff Girl's dresses), black evening gloves (gloves that go up to your elbows, just like the actresses wear at award ceremonies), white leggings, and black boots.
In Powerpuff Girls Z, she has the same hair style, but her hair is burnt orange. She has a tiny crown with three points, and she has no freckles. She usually wears a purple and lavender dress with puffed up sleeves, a big purple bow on the waist line, a blue gem with a yellow borderon the chest area, white leggings, and burgundy Mary Janes.
- Morbucks's last name is a parody/homage to Daddy Warbucks, the adoptive father of Annie in the classic comic strip Little Orphan Annie and the musical Annie.
- Due to her bratty behavior on The Powerpuff Girls, many fans of the show consider her the most hated villain or character on the show
- Princess Morbucks is somewhat similar to Syndrome from Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles, as they both initially wanted to join their idol's side (Powerpuffs for Princess, Mr. Incredible for Syndrome), only for their idols to deny their offer, which they don't take well at all. Both instead become their idol's worst enemies. It can also be seen that both are gingers.
- Princess Morbucks is similar to The Princess
- Both are young girls.
- Both are spoil by their fathers.
- Both are enemies of the protagonist/s (The Powerpuff Girls and Danger Mouse).
