Spinnerella is a fictional character in the animated television series She-Ra: Princess of Power.[2][3]

Character information[edit]

Spinnerella only makes one appearance in the original series, and is shown to be a naive yet very powerful person who lives in an area of Etheria, not controlled by the Horde alongside her friend Netossa. She is fooled by Hordak into thinking Netossa was taken by The Rebellion, when it is really the Horde who are responsible, helping his soldiers gain entry into the Whispering Woods by disabling the trees' power. Upon realizing Hordak tricked her, Spinnerella turns her power against him.

In the 2018 series, portrayed as being in a relationship with Netossa, Spinnerella is a member of the Princess Alliance and played an active role in the first season finale.[4]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Spinnerella has the ability to spin her body around at superhuman speeds.[2] Her power is first demonstrated at Thaymor's Laughing Swan Inn.

Reception[edit]

The character has received a mixed reception for being a plus-sized character.[5][6][7] In the 2018 version of the She-Ra cartoon, the character is portrayed as gay.[8][9]
