Daphne Blake is the fashion-loving member of Mystery Inc. Daphne's characteristic trait in the gang is her tendency to get into danger, hence earning the nickname "Danger-prone Daphne".
She's the offical love interest of Fred Jones.
Daphne is an attractive teenaged female, with an hour glass figure and shoulder-length red hair along with clear blue eyes. Her most worn outfit consists of a purple top, dress, pink pantyhose, and purple shoes with bows. She also wears a plastic purple headband and a green scarf.
In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Daphne has shoulder-length orange-red hair with soft bangs, and lavender eyes. She wears pink lipstick. 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 shoulder-length gloves, and thigh high platform boots. She had extensions in her hair and tied it up in high a pony tail. The Hex Girls also applied mascara and blush, along with lipstick
While not as smart as Velma Dinkley, Daphne would always solve her problems in a different way. She later became more confident and started playing a more active role as time went on, having learnt self defense. She also has strong feelings for Scooby and always wants to make sure he is safe and happy like having him as her own dog.
In junior high, Daphne was more vain and fashion sensitive, likely to stop in the middle of investigating due to a dirt patch on her clothes, than being afraid of ghosts (which she had a strong disbelief in). She would commonly call upon her butler, Jenkins, to do various tasks, such as ridding her of people, beating a monster up, etc.
In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Daphne is trusting, enthusiastic, and kind, and at times lovestruck. Despite being fabulously wealthy, she does not have the same snobby or vain personality that her parents and siblings have. She can also sometimes be a helpless damsel-in-distress, clumsily getting caught by the monster on most occasions. She had a crush on Fred Jones, Jr., and frustrated when he was initially oblivious to her affection. She has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate which sends her in a frenzy

Relationship with Fred Jones
Some fans have posited that Fred and Daphne share an attraction to each other, but this has yet to be truly declared as such in the series itself (though Cartoon Network, in its various promotional bumpers, has had fun with this notion), although Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright did have the two of them finally admit this behind each other's backs, as well as actually kissing each other on the lips during their song.
In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Fred seemed almost clueless of Daphne's feelings thinking only about traps and staying friends with the gang as long as they live, much to Daphne's dismay. Finally, Fred asked Daphne on a date to the Trap Exhibit.
Relationship With Shaggy
Fans who grew up with the Scooby-Doo shows of the 1980s remember that when Mystery Inc finally disbanded, Daphne eventually reconnected with Shaggy and opened a detective agency with him, Scooby, and Scrappy Doo. Daphne at one point was even introduced to Shaggy's parents. In the series 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo, Shaggy and Daphne are even closer and are depicted as both travelling and living together.
After the 80s drew to a close, the SD franchise remained dormant until the late 1990s, when it returned, not much was mentioned of Daphne and Shaggy's time together and the focus was trained more on Daphne's feelings for Fred. In Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated however, there is a nod to the relationship when Shaggy and Daphne sleep together, with the two believing themselves to be different people under some sort of spell.
In the series Be Cool Scooby-Doo, Daphne is a lot more zany and quirkier, more in line with Shaggy and Scooby's equally bizarre behaviour, in one episode she pretends to be Shaggy's girlfriend as a favour to him after his grandmother visits the gang. It is implied Daphne enjoys this role a little too much for it to be a put-on, and Shaggy becomes increasingly annoyed by her act
