|~ Elmyra Duff|
Elmyra Duff is one of the two main antagonists in Tiny Toon Adventures (alongside Montana Max) and one of the three main protagonists in Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain.
She is an unintentional villain in the fact her crazed affection for animals leads her to capture them to keep as pets (often against their will), as he has no clue how to look after them and as such often causes them more suffering than good.
Her mentor at Acme Looniversity is Elmer Fudd and she is in many ways a female version of him, though she hunts animals down out of misplaced affection rather than for sport. Elmyra also has manic affection for the other villain in Tiny Toon Adventures known as Montana Max.
Though for some reason when Elmyra became a character in Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain she lost her apparent love for Montana Max (though by this time she had also apparently lost most of her connections with the Tiny Toons crew and was raising Pinky and the Brain as pets).
Although Elmyra is usually a recurring villain, in the "Can't Buy Me Love" segment of "Fox Trot", she is the main protagonist.
Elmyra is a twelve year old girl with fair skin, short orange hair in a reverse bob and wears a light blue short puffy-sleeved blouse with frilly white cuffs and collar, a matching hairbow with a skull, a white pleated knee-length skirt, frilly light blue, pink or white panties, a matching training bra, white ankle-length socks and black strapped Mary Jane shoes.
In most of her incarnations, Elmyra is a simple-minded child, who hurts animals due to not knowing her own strength and not through direct malice. As The Baroness in Toonenstein though she is re-imagined in a much darker, cunning and intentionally sadistic manner.
- In a promo of Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain for Cartoon Network, she holds the Brain tightly so he does not escape from her anger and she starts using the clock to hit his head.
- Her animal cruelty is similar to Darla Dimple's from Cats Don't Dance, except it is unintentional where as Darla's is intentional.
