Leshawna is portrayed quite differently in this series. While her original counterpart has no love for people who are bullies, she acts as one in the spinoff, spending an entire episode forcing the other kids to treat her like a queen and another episode trying to steal someone else's toy. Spoiled and vain, Leshawna sees the world revolves around her and cares more about herself than her friends. Ironically, this makes Leshawna more like her older's self archenemy instead of herself. Like her older self, Lehsawna has a rather sharp tongue, likes to take leadership, and enjoys seeing the downfall of others, especially those who wronged her.
