Daphne Blake is a young woman that is part of Scooby-doo's team. Acting as Fred's love interest, she is the uncontested damsel in distress of the group, getting kidnapped many times across the gang's mysteries. She is left kidnapped and tied up so often that she was given the nickname "Danger-prone Daphne" and is iconic for her role as the damsel in the entire franchise.
