Winx Club is a group of teenage fairies who attend the Alfea School for Fairies in the dimension of Magix on the FOX channel children’s fantasy WINX CLUB (2004-2007)

These first-year fairy (Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, and Tecna) spend their spare time battling evil to maintain order in the universe. As they proceed in their learning, they earn increasing levels of powers, all ending with the letters “ix” including, Charmix, Enchantix, Believix, as well as the side transformations Zoomix, Speedix, Tracix, Lovix and Sophix.

In between boys, school and friends, the members of the Winx Club learn the basics of magic like metamorphosis, potions and elixirs and connecting with nature so they will be prepared to defend themselves against the black magic of the Senior Witches (Darcy, Icy and Stormy) and their monster warriors.

The Winx Club was started a long time ago by Professor Palladium to prepare her students for the evil that may come their way.

Each of the Winx Club fairies has a particular magical skill.

  • Bloom with the carrot-red hair comes from earth city of Gardenia (“Earth Girls Rule!”). A newcomer to magic, she is developing her powers. Bloom first meet Stella on earth while fighting an ogre and later accepted an invitation to go to school in her dimension to train to be a fairy. Bloom has a cute bunny-rabbit named Kikko.
  • Flora with the light-brown hair comes from the Fifth Moon of Marigold. She has the power over plants and flowers. Her catchphrase is”Peace Out!”
  • Musa with the dark-bluish hair comes from the Harmonic Nebula. She uses the power of music, like Hip Hop. Her catchphrase is “Royalty Rocks!”
  • Stella with the yellow hair comes from Solaria. She gets her power from the sun and moon and loves fashion (“Style is always in Style”).
  • Tecna with the pink-purplish hair comes from the Third Vector of the Binary Galaxy. She uses the power of digital technology to thwart evil. Her catchphrase is “I’ll catch you on the download!”

The girl’s romantic interests include Brandon (Bloom); Sky (Stella), Timmy (Tecna) and Riven (he’s uncommitted). They attend Red Fountain School to become warriors and specialists in the use of magic and technology.

The Senior Witches are trained in a boarding school named Cloud Tower. Their mentor is Professor Gryffin.

The Senior Witches (Icy, Darcy and Stormy), who were actually nice when Professor Gryffin knew the witches, now contemplate plans to create chaos in the universe by using spells of black magic. The trio of witches are called “The Trix.”

They are assisted in their endeavors by their monster sidekicks: The Cretian Minotaur, Hunter Troll and Ghouls. Mr. Knut, an Ogre, is the Senior Witches servant.

Each of the Senior Witches has a particular magical skill.

  • Icy sports long powder-blue hair with a high-rise ponytail. Known as the “witchiest witch” in Cloud Tower, she is the Leader of the Senior Witches. She derives her powers from dead planets and casts frigid ice attacks. Her goal in life is to rule the universe.
  • Darcy has long brown hair and wears stylish purple ensembles. She gets her power from the dark of the primordial void. Skilled with psychic powers, Darcy is adept at manipulating boys. She dislikes fairies.
  • Stormy has dark-bluish frizzy hair and likes to wear red. Ill tempered, she dislikes just about everything and has a penchant for natural disasters, like tornadoes.

Theme Song Lyrics

Close your eyes
And open your heart.
Believe in yourself,
That’s how it starts!

Dreams will come true,
Just wait and see,
‘Cuz the magic’s in you,
And the magic’s in me!

We are the Winx!
We are the Winx!
Come join the club!
We are the Winx!
We are the Winx!
We are the Winx!
Come join the club!
We are the Winx!

Magical flowers,
Digital powers,
Rhythms and tunes,
The sun and the moon!
Keep on searching far and wide,
For the fire burning deep inside!

We’ve got the style,
And we’ve got the flare,
Look all you want,
Just don’t touch the hair!

We are the Winx!
We are the Winx!
Come join the club!
We are the Winx!
We are the Winx!
We are the Winx!
Come join the club,
We are the Winx!!!
