Female (Male in Some Dimensional Counterparts)
Plum is a character in Bravest Warriors. She is a purple alien girl (specifically a Merewif) who is Beth's best friend. Chris, Danny, and Wallow like her a lot although it isn't entirely clear if all of them love her. She first appeared in the comic, and now the animated YouTube series with her first appearance in the episode "Gas-Powered Stick". She is so close to the Bravest Warriors, she is considered the 5th unofficial member of the team. She is possibly the same age as The Bravest Warriors, 16. She also speaks with a slight accent. She is voiced by Tara Strong.
Plum is sweet and perky to those around her. Despite her innocent personality, she can stand up for herself, and doesn't accept rudeness. She also isn't afraid to state what's on her mind, as she demonstrated in "Mexican Touchdown" when she explains to Danny that she isn't attracted to him. Plum is best friends with Beth.
She has a double ancient personality that lives in her second brain, though they do not get along.
Plum is a pale, blue skinned sea creature, called a Merewif, with a mermaid tail that replaces her legs whilst swimming. She has short plum-colored hair with pink bangs and pink cheeks. She apparently has only three fingers and two toes. Plum wears a ripped pink shirt and pink skirt, and goes bare-foot. The x-ray of her skull in Gas-Powered Stick shows that her eyes are purple.
In Mexican Touchdown she wore a black spy uniform with black shorts and black boots.
In Catbug's Away Team she wore a pink shirt with torn sleeves, red shorts, and red boots with a pink line at the top.
Plum mistakes Impossibear as being Wallow's dog, and finds him adorable at first, but quickly changes her opinion of him after he whacks her across the legs with the Gas-Powered Stick given to him by the Emotion Lord, calling him a jerk.
Plum and Beth are best friends. Beth worries about bringing her over due to the guys constantly trying to gain her affection. In the episode "Gas-Powered Stick", Plum shows anger towards the Emotion Lord for giving Chris the ability to watch Beth.
Plum has a crush on Chris, though is unclear if Chris feels the same way. Even though Chris has a crush on Beth, he has been shown to like Plum as well. Examples of this are in Gas-Powered Stick when Chris shares how he obviously enjoyed their kiss and when Plum asked him, "So do you want [me] to just give up?" Chris replied, "Not really." Chris is shown to be rather nervous around her at first, however, afterwards he can talk to her normally. Chris only stuttered when they first met at the beginning of the episode.
In Hamster Priest, Plum and Chris are seen french kissing, though this may be part of Beth's headache from her dad.
Danny has a huge crush on Plum, and competes with Wallow for her attention. While she is aware of his affection (in his constant attempts to impress her) and is flattered by it at first, she only returns affection toward Chris.
In the episode "Mexican Touchdown," Danny tried impressing Plum by protecting her from harm using his body, causing himself much pain. After a while she told him to stop hurting himself for her. At that point, Danny thought it was because she is in love with him and she couldn't stand to see him get hurt, but Plum told him it was actually because she was not attracted to Danny and that she was tired of watching him hurt himself to impress her. Danny then said his life wasn't worth living anymore but then he realized that if he no longer has to worry about impressing Plum, then he was now free and no longer had to hurt himself, and no longer had to worry about impressing Plum. After that, however, he lost his memory of what happened and to him it seemed as if it never happened and he still is infatuated by Plum.
Wallow and Danny are in a similar boat in regards to Plum. They both constantly try to impress her and although she is flattered by this, her only love interest is Chris.
Emotion Lord and Plum have a mysterious relationship. In Gas-Powered Stick she appears to have unexplained anger toward him, and she retrieves and crushes the peach pit he indirectly gave to Chris and gave him a stern look. Strangely, despite Emotion Lord's powerful abilities, he actually shows fear toward Plum (i.e. hiding in a washing machine after she glared at him). This may be because in the episode "Ultra Wankershim", when Chris look into the future, he sees a vision of Plum in a mentally unstable raging state. Plum shows anger towards the Emotion Lord for some reasons unknown, but may be revealed in later episodes.
Plum has been seen talking to the concierge in Merewif Tag. In later episodes, the mysteriousness between herself, the Concierge, and the Emotion Lord might be revealed. The Concierge and Plum talk about how she ruined Chris' relationship with Beth. In issue 20 it is revealed that both of them are saving their timeline by ensuring that the damage done is fixed.
Evil PlumPlum has a doppelganger, like each of the Bravest Warriors do, and like Wallow she is madly in love with hers.
