Roxy Replacing?




It's occurred to me now that by the end of season four or at some point during the course of the series, we are kinda expecting that Layla and Nabu are going to be married as well as Bloom and Sky. By that point, image-wise, married characters are usually not very popular with young demographics and the best way for a producer to deal with that is to smoothly transition out the character. Also, we have to remember that once most people are married in real life, their priorities tend to rearrange themselves to fit their current life such as Layla taking the throne of Andros/Tides.

Some more familiar examples are (in Pokemon) when the main female trainer is replaced by another female trainer such as May replacing Misty and Dawn replacing May. Another example was when they replaced Brock with Tracy in season two, I think, because that was when Pokemon was going global and the producers decided that Brock would seem racist (because he's black) to American veiwers.

There's also the issue of having one too many Winx girls. If and when Roxy becomes an official member of the Winx Club, they will be seven girls in total. That is already a lot of characters for one show. Then there is the expectation that she will get a boyfriend and maybe even a bonded pixie if the producers at Rainbow are that generous (even though they have Pop Pixie in the works). That's already seven main girls, seven main guys and seven pixies. There's also her dog Artu to think about, too.

I don't necessarily mean that Roxy is going to replace Layla or Bloom as soon as they marry and it is still very possible Roxy is only a tagalong character for the season like Flora's sister Miele/Rose was for her episode. Rainbow cannot really prolong Bloom or Layla's marriages for too long or else their audiences become unsatisfied with the show.

Can this possibly be what's going to happen?

  2. Brock is black?

    Anyway, I think the series will end with the girls' weddings. We already know there's going to be a fifth season and another movie -- that might be the last of it.

    If/When Roxy becomes a Winx, she's probably not going to replace anyone. The current Winx are too popular, and fans of the girl Rainbow removed would be upset. As you said, there's still a possibility Roxy's just a tag-along character, though more like Mirta than Miele. However, going on Banjogate's subs, Bloom promises the pixies that one of them would be bonded with the new fairy. That's a pretty strong hint, since only the Winx so far have been shown with bonded pixies.

    Seven definitely seems like a crowd, but other successful magical girl style shows have managed having large groups. For example, "Ojamajo Doremi" finishes with seven girls (Ojamajos), and "Sailor Moon" has 10 scouts and Tuxedo Mask. The supporting characters (like the Specialists and the pixies) don't really count for much.

    Okay, that was long. Sorry.

  3. I don't think Layla will be replaced, because she was added because people complained Winx was not 'diverse' enough. She was added because they needed a dark coloured characters (I read that in an online interview somewhere). And Bloom will not be replaced since she is the main heroine and if she will be replaced, shows will drop. I'm rather thinking that if Roxy is not included, she will study at Alfea... though I wonder why, because she has her Believix and not any of the 'weaker' transformations.
    As for many characters... My novel series has 10 main characters and it's getting harder and harder to give everyone some showtime XP

    1. actually, they are arranged to be married, but they told their parents to at least wait. let them decide. i guess Nabu proposed to make it seem more offical. also, i may be the only one who noticed this, but Sky proposed to Bloom twice! once in the end of Secret of the Lost Kingdom and again in Magical Adventure. that's the confusing part. Also, Riven's not that jealous anymore and Brandon proposed to Stella.

  6. Arranged doesn't necessarily mean engaged. The idea of an arranged marriage is that your coupling was set up by a third-party and then court the other person formally to see if it would work out or not.

  7. I DOUBT anything or anyone os gonna replace Bloom. The whole show is about her. If they replace her then it has got to be someone big, and maybe Roxy is just that person, youe never know.

    Honestly, I don't see why the show can't continue with them married anyway...it'll be exactly the same except with rings on their fingers. I know they'll have duties and all that stuff, but Bloom is all about protecting others and saving the world.

    Just saying, the shouldn't get rid of Bloom, BUT if they do...then Roxy would be the one to do it. But I think she's too timid and has no idea what the magical world has to offer...

  8. Neither did Bloom when she first came to magical universe.

  13. hello im a new magazine creator "so winxy" and i think that the most popular winx girl is going to be [in out mag] "flora" thats right flora if ur going to read "so winxy"mag ull see its gonna rock HOPE U LIKE IT .chau!

  14. I know i would still watch winx club even if they got married. i was sad to see Nabu die i hope they manage to bring him back. Roxy is an okay character but there is no way she could replace Bloom or Layla.

    So what if they have to add another guy and another pixie it will keep us all on our toes.

    I seriously doubt that any of the current Winx girls would give up on saving the world even if they got married. its who they are they were made guardian fairies for a reason.

  15. Awwwwwww.I did not know Nubu dies.to bad,once I tell my friends the'll be sad maby.

    Anyway who ever said "they should replase layla w/ roxy" I don`t think they should do that,even though I do like her.And if she replace`s Bloom I`ll dump the show,'cuz if I were a winx I would be her and I know 7 people that would be the 7 charitors my mom, my aunt,and some friends.

    Oh,I said Awwwwwww, is becuase I have`nt whatched the sires in a while 'cuz when ever I start an Ep. I say:I`ve seen this ep. befor!

  18. I only watched the first half of season 4, so maybe my thoughts are a little misguided. Based on what I saw, I suspected that Roxy was being groomed as a "Bloom v. 2.0", but not as a replacement. I can see Roxy becoming the leader of an "Earth Winx Club". Sailor Moon featured teams of "inner" and "outer" scouts who typically worked separately, and had their own leaders. I could see this happening with the series.

  19. i pretty sure that roxy wont only join the winx club but be the leader.first of all bloom i geting marred so bloom cant lead any more.second look at the pictuer of all 6 of the winx girls plus roxy above.she is in the middle/frunt of all the girls.third if you go on "home page"of this.com you will see roxy's picture.and ussuly the leader off the show has her pictuer on the home page.and her picture on the home page is one of her with wings on.no one elses has wings on.thats for things.

  24. I don't think Roxy will replace anyone. However, if Bloom was unable to be leader because of her duties that come with being married to Sky, I do think Roxy would be leader then. Think about Bloom. She's always been leader of the Winx Club from the very beginning, despite that she had only recently discovered the world of magic. Considering how similar Roxy and Bloom are, I wouldn't be surprised if Roxy were to be leader if Bloom couldn't do it anymore. And if that were to happen, I also wouldn't be surprised if the other Winx girls just followed along with it. I have watched every episode (Rai English and 4kids) of Winx Club and I don't remember ever hearing any of the girls complain about Bloom being the leader.

  25. How could Roxy be a leader if she's a novice in fairies. She's just starting to know more from Farygonda and the Winx Club. I think in Season 5, Roxy will be a minor character just like Clarisse and Alice, but for all the minor characters, Roxy is more concentrated.

  26. I think that Roxy cannot be a winx girl.As you were saying, she would eventually have a boyfriend and a pixie.That would be too many people.I am hearing compliants on Bloom taking up too much room.If she is going to be a Winx, she will never replace anyone due to audience favoring.I also heard that Nabu will come back to life in a Winx movie!!!Roxy is a freshman at Alfea while the others ,I think are graduating soon.She is just a girl that needed the Winx's help.That is all:)A "tag-along".No worries ♥

  27. I also agree that she may be like Mirta than Rose.Sorry the other post was long:)

  29. Well I'm pretty sure that Roxy is never gonna replace Bloom but I hope Roxy will replace Layla because I didn't like Layla in the 1st place in the 2nd season But Bloom is the leader of the team and the most powerful fairy But Bloom is and always will be the main character Bloom and Roxy are my fav fairies.

  30. @flora yeah you are ride (:
    lovebloom so much
    I want roxy in season 5. but not so important someone. and no winx. I also do not like Layla. but much more than roxy. and roxy can't replace anyone. she is not suited for that. she is very scared and insecure. you all saying that bloom also scared was in the beginning. but wtch season 1 again. she was so brave while she couldn't even transform.
    Bloom is simply the best.


    ~and as bloom really would go away. not that that happens. then nobody would be the leader.
    because stella,tecna,flora,musa,layla are al the same (Roxy does not belong in the club) and even if she has belongs to the club,she has
    the least benefit.
    how can roxy be the leader.
    al the others are stronger&accustomed
    bloom is the leader because she is so strong
    how can roxy be a leader, how can she be stronger than the other winx :p

  31. BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMM<'3

    ReplyDelete
  32. omg how can you say that roxy can be the leader
    how do you know that she is strong?
    she was once strong and that was because she had help from the cirkel
    how can she be the leader how?
    the other ones are so much stronger
    roxy came in season 4
    and than you say that she can be the leader
    that is a insult for the other winx
    the other winx are stronger
    roxy is just a girl
    not important as bloom. she is not so strong as bloom and can never be so strong as bloom
    she can never be like bloom !
    mayby, just mayby she can be like the other winx but that is over few years.
    but i do not believe that,
    she is not so brave as them. and has no stamina. the winx girls are special. a normal girl like her does not really fit there. How dare she.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think that Roxy should be a winx girl because she was important in season 4 and she is friends with the winx girl. N even though Bloom got married she can still be in the winx club.

  34. I hope that Roxy would get a boyfriend and Layla to get one too.

  35. hmmm. i wasnt 2 pleased when Layla came in season 2, never rly liked her... but she was a big help thru the other seasons. @ the end of season 4, she goes w Nebula & the revenge fairies, so its a possibility that roxy replaces Layla. but the others r so much older, mature, and stronger... i hav never liked Roxy... sry roxy-luvers. BLOOM ALL THE WAY!!! shes always been my fave! i hope she & Sky get married. im pretty sure they do in 2nd movie, i rly hav no clue. ths is kinda long sry. if they drop Bloom i drop Winx Club. ;() & i agree that even if the girls get married, they're still part of the Winx CLub. tho with lil girls, they wouldnt rly care, i dnt thnk. getting married isnt rly little girlish, but still. i thnk Winx is more popular with like 10-15 or so. i myself am thirteen. ths was very long. hahha

    1. i have to agree with u on that. it should either be Flora, Musa, or Layla to be leaders. Bloom has had enough spotlight for some years.

  44. Listen,Roxy is not going to replace anyone.Also none of the winx are getting married,alright?If you do think they are getting married watch all of season 4, got it?Now all this is nonsense so stop saying silly things about winx club.if you want to know more about winx club just ask me,ok? 'cause I know everything about this show,seen every single episode of all four seasons and nick episodes,I was eating winx fruit snacks when I was three.So,well I'm done

    ReplyDelete
  45. Roxy can't be the leader because through out the series everyone in the show has said that bloom is the strongest fairy on earth and Layla is just as important. Roxy is 3 years younger than the winx club and will be a minor character in season 5 because she will be a freshman and they are teachers at alfea
