The Tricycle Girl is one of the primary antagonists of the 2014 film Cooties. She is a schoolgirl in fourth grade at Ft. Chicken Elementary School and one of many children on the playground to be infected with the food-borne virus that transforms children into zombie-like monsters.
She was portrayed by Ashley Rae Miller.
Before the virus, the tricycle girl was a normal child. When she contracted the virus, She became sadistic, bloodthirsty, and cannibalistic like the other infected children.
Pre-infection, the tricycle girl was a normal child. This all changes after a tainted batch of chicken nuggets from Happy Poultry Farms is delivered across North America during the summer of 2014. One day in Fort Chicken, Illinois (where the film is set) a fourth grader named Shelley Linker inadvertently infects herself with the virus through her lunch.
The tricycle girl is first seen in class and swallows a pill for medication until Shelley infects Patriot. When the virus in children outbreaks, the tricycle girl gets infected and starts a killing spree with the other children in the entire school.
Later at night, the tricycle girl is seen riding joyfully on her tricycle while Clint and Lucy are hiding inside the air vents from the floor. When Clint accidentally makes a noise, the cootie girl stops and investigates down the floor near the two survivors. Unaware to see them, the girl goes back to her tricycle and continues riding it around circles, which found that cute. Later, the tricycle girl rides in the next room and stops to look at the vending machine that Clint hides behind. When the machine makes a noise pulling out the dollar, the cootie girl screams loudly, drawing the attention of Patriot who's running quick to the girl's signal. Clint successfully gets a candy bar for Calvin and escapes back into the vents with Lucy crawling away from Patriot and the cootie kids catching them.
At the fun center in the film's climax, the tricycle girl is later killed in flames with the other children by Wade, and the teachers drove off to somewhere else where no kid has been.
- Unlike every Cootie Kid, the tricycle girl's real name has not confirmed.
