Pokémon trainers seeking to capture a wild Jigglypuff look for the creature in grassy meadows. Did you know? Most Jigglypuff are females. Only 25 percent of Jigglypuff are males.

Gamedaily ranked Jigglypuff as third among its "Pretty in Pink" video game characters.
Jigglypuff is best known for its song. In battle, Jigglypuff mesmerizes its opponent with its large, expressive eyes. Then, it begins to sing a lullaby to cause its attacker to fall asleep.
In the animated series, one wild Jigglypuff followed Ash, Pikachu, and their friends, intent on singing its entire song to them without anyone falling asleep.
Because of the soothing quality of the song and Jigglypuff's innate ability to match its song to its listeners' brainwaves, the audience was soon in dreamland. The angry Jigglypuff would then draw on the faces of the sleepers in retaliation.
Jigglypuff first appeared in the anime episode entitled "The Song of Jigglypuff." In addition to the Pokémon movies and animated series, Jigglypuff has been immortalized in video games, the Pokémon collectible card game, toys, clothing, accessories, school supplies, and more.

The term "chibi" is derived from a Japanese verb meaning "to become shorter." It is a style of caricature that features its subject in an exaggerated way. Chibi "are small and chubby, with stubby limbs and oversized heads to make them resemble children." The word chibi can also be translated as "little" or "cute."
Chibi has become popular due to its use in anime and manga. When drawing a chibi character, the head usually takes up one third to one half of the cartoon's height. The design, including the features of the face, is also simplified and less detailed when compared to other drawing styles.
Chibi drawing styles are used occasionally in non-chibi cartoons to achieve a comedic effect. The chibi character is often expressing a strong emotion, such as anger or infatuation. Examples can be found in anime such as Pokémon and One Piece. Chibi caricatures are also drawn of famous people and historical figures.

"Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?"
- Princess Leia to a disguised Luke Skywalker, Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)
Stormtroopers were introduced into the Star Wars franchise in the opening scene of its first film, depicting a raid on a rebel spacecraft. Stormtroopers are soldiers of the Galactic Empire, serving such personalities as Darth Vader and the evil emperor. They wear armor and carry blasters, or energy guns.
Did you know that the fictional stormtroopers were based, in part, on an actual piece of history? During World War I, special troops in Germany were called Sturmtruppen, often translated "storm troops" or "stormtroopers." These soldiers employed new battle tactics. They also wore curved helmets - without a faceplate - that may have inspired the costumes of Star Wars lore.
Today, stormtroopers play a role in Star Wars fan art and other activities. It is not uncommon to see a stormtrooper helmet like the one in this drawing tutorial emblazoned on a t-shirt, school supplies, or a vehicle bumper sticker. Fans also enjoy dressing up as stormtroopers for science fiction conventions and other events. This is called cosplay, combining the words "costume" and "play".
Would you like to draw a stormtrooper helmet? Now you can, with the aid of this easy, step-by-step drawing guide. Simply follow the detailed illustrations and written explanations below, paying special attention to the highlighted blue lines. You will need only a sheet of paper and a pencil, pen, or marker.
May the Force be with you!
