- “You have more power than you realize. Don't think, and don't worry. If the time comes, you'll know what to' do. It's in your blood.”
- ―Helen to Violet
Violet Parr is a major character in the Disney/Pixar animated film The Incredibles and its sequel. She is the eldest child and only daughter of Bob and Helen Parr and older sister of Dash and Jack-Jack. As a child of superheroes, she has superhuman powers herself; she can make herself partly or completely invisible or create a force field around herself or in some distance.
Why She Rocks
- When she is first introduced, Violet is depicted as gloomy, uncertain, shy, socially withdrawn, and has a few self-esteem issues - preferring to hide behind her long hair, which is seemed to be reflected in her super powers; she is able to turn invisible at will, and can generate a spherical force field around herself and others.
- As the oldest child, Violet often finds herself placed under stress and authority she doesn't want. But she has a curious and experimental nature to her, willing to explore her abilities and her world once she is freed from the family prohibitions about using her superpowers.
- She also has a sharp and observational sense of humor, and despite a strong sibling rivalry, she is strongly protective of her little brother Dash.
- While not a superhuman trait, Violet's intellect is certainly the highest of her family, showing an inquisitive and adaptable nature about herself, her powers, and the world around her.
- In Incredibles 2, Violet has embraced her powers and displays a broader range of emotions that is typical of a girl her age: Throwing tantrums, acting awkward and at times being depressive.
- Under extreme stress or uncertainty, her invisibility powers can even trigger subconsciously, causing her head and body to simply disappear.
- Violet writes in cursive, as shown in a diary entry.
