–Dani, "Kindred Spirits"

Danielle "Dani" Phantom is a younger, female version of Danny Phantom, created accidentally by his archenemy Vlad Masters when trying to clone Danny Phantom.

History

Vlad, desperately lonely despite his wealth, conducted a series of experiments with the aim of creating the perfect half-ghost son for himself. He tried to accomplish this by making clones of Danny Phantom, using Danny's DNA. All of his attempts failed except for one, which resulted in a girl whom Vlad named Danielle. Vlad never faltered in showing love and affection to his "daughter", and Dani never faltered in her desire to serve her "father".

In "Kindred Spirits", Vlad sent Dani on a mission to capture Danny so that Vlad could take the DNA samples he needed for his perfect clone. She snuck into Danny's room and waited for him in her human form, reading his comic books. When he came, she introduced herself to him as Danielle, his third cousin once removed, and they quickly formed a bond despite Danny's suspicion. Later, Dani succeeded in bringing Danny to Vlad. She then found out that the "perfect clone" Vlad was trying to create was was not her, but a male clone designed to be just like Danny. Together, they put a stop to Vlad's plan.

In "D-Stabilized", Dani's instability finally caught up to her, which would cause her body to spontaneously melt into a puddle of ectoplasm without warning. Dani returned to Amity Park, seeking Danny's help, but instead found Valerie. Valerie was working for Vlad, however, and tried to use Dani as a trap to find her real target, Danny Phantom. Valerie's plan worked, and she captured Danny, while Vlad took Dani. Danny convinced Valerie to let him go to find a cure for Dani, as she was half-human and Valerie didn't want Vlad to hurt humans. Using one of his parents' inventions, Danny rescues Dani and stabilizes her body. After the battle, Danny and Dani reveal to Valerie that Vlad Masters and Vlad Plasmius are one and the same, causing Valerie to swear revenge on Vlad. Dani once again leaves to do her own good for the world.

Dani was finally seen briefly in "Phantom Planet" as one of the ghosts assisting Danny to save the Earth.[1]

Appearance

As Danny's clone, Danielle shares some similarities with Danny. In her human form, she has the same skin color, eye color and hair color as Danny. She wears a red beanie, red shorts with a camo pattern in "D-Stabilized," a blue sweater/hoodie, and the same shoes as Danny, only blue with white dots on the side. She has the same hairstyle as Danny, with the back longer and in a ponytail. Like Danny, she bears a strong resemblance to her genetic mother, Maddie Fenton.

Dani in "human" form

In ghost form, her skin, hair, and costume are of the same color scheme as Danny's. Instead of a one-piece suit, she wears a matching shirt-and-pants set that reveals her midriff, with no belt. The right half of her shirt is white and the left half is black, divided diagonally down the middle, and she wears a black right glove and a white left glove. She has streaks of white on the sides of her pants that come down to her boots. She has the same emblem as Danny.

Personality

Danielle shares many of Danny's likes and personality traits. Unlike the other failed experiments, she is not mindless and doesn't mind voicing exactly how she feels. A very willful and somewhat tomboyish girl, she's a lot like Danny, only more cheerful and childish. She seems to have no concern with responsibility, and can be quite stubborn at times. She can also be quite naive, which is, in part, due to her limited existence so far.

She is about twelve years of age physically,[2] but due to her being a clone, her actual age is possibly a few months at most. Because of her limited knowledge, Danielle is easily talked into obeying Vlad's commands, as she thought of him like a real father, and it wasn't until she met Danny that she realized that she was just one of Vlad's pawns.

Danny and Dani are close to being identical twins genetically though chronologically age different, although they seem to view each other as cousins. Dani originally saw Danny as a subject that she has been sent to capture for her "father," Vlad. Danny refuses to fight her because she was the only clone with a mind of her own and he is afraid she would melt into ectoplasm if he did. Eventually she sided with her "cousin" after learning her "father" was only using her to get to Danny.

Though she is away for a time, she vows to return, now on good terms with her "cousin." Both Danny and Dani seem to have grown a strong bond of trust and concern for each other since, and Danny begins to serve as somewhat of an older brother figure to her. It may be a possibility that she stays with the Fentons after the last episode of the series.

Vlad Masters/Plasmius

Dani originally looks up to Vlad as her "father" and does whatever he tells her to do. However, he constantly lies to her and manipulates her. He convinces her to capture Danny Phantom because he would be able to stabilize her form and save her with his DNA, although he really does not intend to help her at all. He considers her a mistake--just an imperfect attempt at cloning Daniel in order to get the perfect son he has always wanted. However, when she meets Danny, he reveals to her just how evil Vlad really is, and upon making this realization, she has since opposed him and no longer views herself as his "daughter". Ironically, if he had raised Dani like he would have raised Danny or the primary clone, he would have succeeded in his plan to have a family.

Valerie Gray

When Dani comes back to Amity Park, she encounters Valerie, who thought she was out to destroy Vlad Masters. At first, Valerie couldn't believe that Dani was a ghost until she saves her from a falling building. Valerie uses Danielle to get to Danny and capture them both. After a talk with Danny, Valerie agrees to help him rescue his "cousin", on account that Dani is half-human, Danny pointing out that when the ghost half of someone is eliminated, so is the human half. Despite being tricked by her, Dani thanks Valerie for helping Danny save her before taking off. This may have been the first step in Valerie realizing there are good ghosts as well.

Powers and Abilities

Dani Phantom has many of the same powers as Danny, but isn't as powerful as he is due to her limited experience.

Going Ghost: Her transformation is accompanied by white rings moving along her body, just like Danny. When in ghost form, she can use all of her ghost powers such as:

  • Ghost Sense: When a ghost is nearby, a shiver runs up her spine and a blue wisp of cold air comes out of her mouth. (This may also mean she has the potential to develop ice powers like Danny.)
  • Intangibility: Standard ghost power.
  • Invisibility: Standard ghost power.
  • Flight: Standard ghost power. She can fly almost as fast as Danny.
  • Superhuman Strength: At her strongest, she once threw Vlad through five stone columns.
  • Superhuman Stamina (now that she is no longer unstable)
  • Spectral Body Manipulation: She can form a ghost tail while flying.
  • Ghost Ray: Her ghost rays are green. While she was unstable, this power burned through her quickly, but as of "D-Stabilized", she can handle this power with ease. She can also use Energy Strikes.
  • Overshadowing
  • Ghost Ray
  • Ghost Ray
  • Energy Strike
  • Superhuman Strength
  • Going Ghost
  • Invisibility
  • Intangibility
  • Ghost Sense
  • Flight

Weaknesses

Instability (formerly): Danielle's greatest weakness was that she couldn't go all-out with her powers like Danny could, as her unstable clone body was unable to handle such a power strain. If she used too much power at once, her body would destabilize and slowly morph into a puddle of ectoplasm. During "D-Stabilized", with Danny's help, she gained a stable body and no longer suffered from this weakness.
