Blue is a beloved color all over the world, so it shouldn’t be all that surprising it’s also a beloved color in popular culture.

Many famous characters sport blue hues.

And we’re talking legit blue characters, not characters who wear blue clothing or characters with blue hair.

These are characters with blue in their very DNA, in the pigment of their skin or fur.

So, whether you’re looking for cosplay ideas or trivia answers, here are some of the most famous blue characters from popular culture from cartoons to ad campaigns.

Blue Cartoon Characters & Blue Comic Characters

The highest frequency of blue in popular culture appears in the form of animated blue characters.

Which makes some sense.

It’s a lot easier to ask an animator to use a specific color code than an actor to sit in makeup for two hours to get all blued up.

And we should be thankful for it, because cartoons, animation, and comics have given us some of the great blue characters of all time.

Here are some of the most well-known (with one from claymation):

Let us know if we left anyone out.
