Poppy is the protagonist of the movies Trolls and Trolls World Tour, the Christmas Special Trolls Holiday, and appears in every episode of the Trolls: The Beat Goes On! series. She is currently the leader of the Pop trolls.


Poppy has a light pink skin complexion with rosy cheeks, glitter freckles, and a smile on her face. Her hair color is a darker pink, and sticks up in the air naturally. Her nose is the same color, and so are her eyes and eyebrows. Her ears curve up slightly and like the other trolls she has four fingers on each hand and four toes on each foot. Her main outfit is a blue dress held together by a white stitch on the shoulder, with a light blue wavy spade design. Her headband is green with blue flowers, and she wears a purple and blue Hug Time bracelet that opens up into a pink flower when it's Hug Time.

As a baby, Poppy is shown with short hair. She is seen wearing a green headband with a blue flower, quite similar to the one she wears when she gets older.

During the 20 Year Celebration and the rest of the movie, Poppy's hair is put up into a straight ponytail held together by blue hair tie instead of being straight up.

At the end of the film, Poppy is crowned Queen of the Trolls and wears a crown made of green leaves of different size and color. She was meant to have been crowned Queen earlier in the film, but due to the party scene changing from her ceremony of ascension to the throne being changed to a anniversary party this meant she would not be crowned until later. In the original scene she was be seen not only wearing the crown, but her entire royal attire.

Poppy's model has a unique head and her hair style is not shared by any other Troll. It is much less wider then the standard Troll and rounder. Her dress and headband are uniquely designed.

Poppy starts the movie wearing her Trolls outfit, then gains a more winter themed dress and hand band later.

In the series Poppy's dress is mostly blue with white border patterns. Unlike the movie her hair is not in a ponytail. In later seasons, her dress colours are reversed and the dress is buttoned with a pink heart.

Poppy is also featured with her "Candlewick" hairstyle while other other media featuring her usually goes for her "ponytail" hairstyle design.

In the trailer of Trolls World Tour, she wears the same dress, in some scenes as Trolls for scenes like Sound of Silence.

In the movie itself, she has a similar but updated outfit to Trolls. Her headband while is still green has also had a major change with a large dark blue flower with a blue petal, two smaller blue flowers with yellow petals and a dark yellow petals.

In Lonesome Flats, which is wear an bright pink outfit with a yellow swirl on it. Purple stockings, her headband is also purple and yellow. She has glasses that have heart shaped lenses.

In later Trailers, she is featured in an outfit known as "Rock Poppy". She has black streaks in her hair and is wearing a headband with spikes on it. She has 2 silver hooped earrings in her right ear and one in her left. She is wearing a black shirt and a patchwork denim dress. She has fish-net stocks and a spiked leg ankle band on her left leg. When in "Rock Zombie" mode her eyes glow red.


In Trolls, Poppy was the happy-go-lucky future leader of Troll Village. Though Poppy was born like Branch in the Troll Tree her earliest experiences are that of liberation and freedom, the Trolls escaping from the Troll tree. Poppy grew up in a care free environment, watching the rebuilding of Troll society, with almost all the Trolls around her being happy and living to enjoy life. As a result, she ended up being ignorant of real anger and naive towards the threats of the past.

She generally is adored by all and is friends with everyone, especially the Snack Pack. She cares about the well being of all trolls and often has big parties to keep everyone happy. Poppy is determined and no matter what when she sets her sights on something she tends to achieve it. Her belief is that everyone deserves to be happy and to be given the chance to be happy, thus she doesn't like to leave anyone out of the chance to have fun. Her ability to make friends even with her enemies lead to her both befriending Bridget because of her sympathy towards her and later Branch through their adventure. She is courageous and will go through danger to help her friends and tries to make friends with everyone, even inviting Branch to her parties even though he won't go.

Despite all things, Poppy has still a lot to learn. In Trolls Holiday, she always having the best interests of others leads her to forget to listen to them. In Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, Poppy spends much of the series learning about being a leader of the Trolls by helping all her friends and learning from her mistakes along the way, as well as helping Branch be "normal" again.


King Peppy

Their relationship is generally one of great respect, Peppy is glad to have her as a daughter and she looks to him for sage advice. Poppy admires her father and wants to be a good leader to the Trolls like he was, but sometimes just lacks the experience and he is known to chip in advice from time to time.


Dreamworks Trolls - Princess Poppy hugging Branch

Lovable Pink Troll meets Grumpy Grey one

The first ever established banter between the two comes from Troll 2 Troll, a series of shorts features Branch and Poppy debating various topics. Poppy tends to see the brighter side of the debates and ends up being undecided about which is better much to the annoyance of Branch. In most cases, the interactions of the two lead to no answer actually being given on the topic.

Branch and Poppy are seen throughout the Trolls film as opposites. Branch generally doesn't like other Trolls and sees Poppy as a nightmare, but Poppy is still the only one to give Branch a chance and had been constantly inviting her to all her parties. While Poppy is happy and care free, Branch is grumpy and always so serious. She finds him confusing and wondered why he didn't sing, presuming that he jut couldn't sing until he later explains why. The two begin to slowly better understand each other.

Though they are opposites, they are often right about different things. For example, Poppy's beliefs her friends were still alive were also matched by Branches warnings that having a loud party would attract the attention of the Bergens in the first place.

Ultimately, when Poppy finally realizes she really didn't know what it was like to know sadness as her actions lead to all the Trolls being captured to be eaten by the Bergens, Branch was the one to cheer her up and give her back happiness.

Poppy's relationship with Branch in the Trolls: The Beat Goes On! series generally consists of her trying to help him being normal by putting effort into him. Such as creating a "Bunker List" of things to do to help him become a better Troll. Poppy is Branch's best friend, and while Poppy herself has many "best friends" Branch is the only one who struggles just being a Troll. Branch requires a lot more work then all her other friends to achieve the basics and sometimes that also includes bringing him back to reality.

The relationship of the pair is not always good with Poppy generally being sceptical of everything he does as it comes with a overreaction of paranoia that can borderline crazy. In many episodes, she is seen reeling him in such as Eye'll Be Watching You. In Meet the Peppy, her father notices she has been spending a lot of time with him lately and has even made it onto her "Best Friends Board".


Poppy generally seemed to have cared most about him out of all her friends in Trolls. He often poops her nose to cheer her up. Creek is seen to be on good terms with Poppy and she even has him at the centre of her frame set. In the prequel book Follow Your Art, he was shown to be very supportive of Poppy and even had a very close relationship to her. She remains hopeful he is still alive after Chef insists King Gristle Jr. eats him, even though Branch points out the unlikelihood of his survival.

His later betrayal comes as a shock to her and even tries to strangle him when he confesses he is not only selling her out but the entire Troll Village.

Poppy forgives Creek when he returns in the series Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, though they remain distant from each other. Aside from dealing with his and Branch's rivalry, she has very little interactions with him.

It can also been seen in her room in a few episodes that she has replaced his photo in the picture frame set with Branch. It is clear they are no longer the best of friends and that Branch has taken his place as one of her greatest friends.


Bridget is a Bergen she befriends to help save Creek in Trolls. Poppy helps her due to how unhappy she is and the two become good friends. This is also seen in Trolls Holiday, where she tries and help the Bergens, leading to a fight between her and Bridget. The two realize their misunderstandings and forgive each other in the end.

Snack Pack

The members of the group of Trolls are among her closest and dearest friends and she would offer anything for them. In Trolls, this means rescuing them from the Bergens, in Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, this means helping them with their everyday lives and problems.

Other Trolls

Poppy is adored by all other Trolls and strives to be a good leader in return.

She is aware of the way Trolls behave as well and has their best interests at heart, citing that if they find out there in an imposter in The Imposter, the Trolls will panic. Likewise, if there is something wrong with her they'll panic as stated in Switcher-Ruby, just sneezing caused her to be stuck in bed for a week because the village overreacted to the possibility of her being ill.

Skills & Abilities

She has most normal Troll abilities.


Poppy is the Leader of the Pop trolls, a skill she is still learning from. Her main duty as leader is to keep every Troll happy and calm, protect them from danger and help if they do get in trouble.

Her leadership skills are mostly built on optimism, trying to please everyone and hardwork. So when she fails its usually because she tried too hard, was trying to leave no Troll unhappy or simply had too much of positive outlook she didn't see disaster coming. One exampled of her failing as a leader is "Blank Day" from Trolls: The Beat Goes On!. Instead of deciding which new holiday should fill the blank date on the calendar, she choose all holidays leading to everyone's interests interfering with each other and creating disaster because she didn't want to upset anyone. At night, she makes a speech to the Trolls who have created disaster in all holidays. Afterwards, she starts to choose a new holiday.


Poppy is the leader of the Trolls and every Troll in Troll Village expects to be her friend. She is required to give love and affection regularly. In Switcher-Ruby, it was shown that the rest of the village tends to expect this of her and when she appears not to be herself they can overreact.

Her optimism means that if she wants to make friends with someone, her persistence usually results in them being friends in the end. She has managed to make friends with some of the unlikeliest people such as Village Grouch Branch, the Bergen Bridget and the Party Crashers scout Archer.


Poppy is a good singer singing if she is happy or to relax. Poppy sings a lot as this is suppose to be a basic thing Trolls do. She tried in Trolls to get Branch to sing and when she couldn't she just presumed he wasn't a good singer. In Hitting the Sky Note, she likewise encouraged Sky Toronto to also sing with a very different result.

In the episode Big Poppy, she is also good in rapping and participated in a compliment rap battle.

Her favorite instrument is a cowbell. She also was seen playing a ukulele during the song "Sound of Silence" in Trolls.

As Queen of the Pop trolls, it is her sworn duty to protect her music, including the pink string of Pop.

Paper Craft

Princess poppy3

Poppy is a skilled Scrapbook-er

She is skilled at paper-craft and is able to make elaborate scrapbook and invitations complete with Pop-up effects and Glitter sprays.


A duty of her role as leader is to teach young Trolls about their culture and educate them in how to be a Troll. Due to being a late bloomer, she also includes Branch on a one to one level, and occasionally she has to teach the odd lesson to her other friends as well. Meaning that her teaching role doesn't end in the classroom at all.


Just as Branch is obsessed with safety and paranoid about danger Poppy is obsessed with over the top schemes. She doesn't always see how things can wrong and at times can fail to think things through. Despite his warnings and questioning on the success chances of many of her ventures, she ignores the advice of Branch much to his annoyance and as consequences he is then dragged into the scheme because she can't do it alone.

When the two clash Trolls clash, Poppy has been shown to really go over the top to prove she is better then Branch, she doesn't just beat him she proves him completely wrong. In Prank Day, she goes into a deep prank just because Branch called himself 'the Prank Master' a title she herself had claimed. Later in Bunker Break-In, she repeated her success over Branch again with an elaborate scheme to capture his flag inside his bunker. In both cases, what separated her from Branch was while he was on his own, she was able to get her friends to cooperate while he was working solo.

It has not just been Branch to receive the same treatment. In Snow Day, she tries excessively hard to hit her father with a snowball. Archer Pastry was also subject to days of attempts to befriend him before he finally caved in and became her friend. A lot of the time, these schemes come as a result of an obsessive determination to succeed.

Branch explains why he won't sing, causing the other Trolls to finally realise his pain. Branch agrees to go along but not to sing to Poppy's delight. They create a new look for her under the name of "Lady Glittersparkle Seriously".

As Bridget and the King manage to get on a date together with the help of the Trolls, Poppy helps her to say everything she needs to in order to further keep the King's attention on Bridget. During the date, the King reveals Creek is indeed alive. When the date is over, Poppy departs much to Bridget's dismay due to her lack of confidence in herself, leaving Poppy sad she can't help Bridget any futher.

After getting the other Trolls to safety, Poppy and her friends go back to save Bridget, Poppy being unable to save her. They then reveal that she is Lady Glittersparkle to the King.

Character Concept

Poppy's design was intended to have pink hair from the start and in all concepts it remained this color. The design itself varied from a older more 1980s/1990s appearance to the final look of Trolls. Poppy's overall look had many different styles, before they settled on an overall style for the film. They choose pink to give her a striking bright color. This was part to contrast Branch who was a dull grey color. The concept designers choose a ponytail look to make her hair look like a constantly exploding volcano. Early on, she was also given a good luck gem in her belly button, but this disappeared in later versions.

Poppy's look was designed to match the character traits the developer's of the film had come up for her. They wanted her to match her lively and energetic character traits.[2]

Concept Art


Poppy's name has multiple meanings that refer to her character. The name itself is taken from the colour "Poppy Pink".[2]

The word "Poppy" itself means "tuneful and immediately appealing".

Poppy is also a type of flower, matching Branch's name own plant-based name, a "Branch" is part of a tree.
