Every day during Frankie's first week she seems to attack Cleo inadvertently, such as electrocuting Cleo and ruining her hair on Wednesday. During Fearleading tryouts later that day, Cleo performs a cool routine that intimidates the recruits into running away, save for Frankie.

Cleo's servants drop Nefera's borrowed items in a trench; Cleo is not guilty about it since they're her sister's stuff. The mummy enjoys the trip on Lagoona's yacht. She does not enjoy Farnum's gross boat or how the Tiki natives worship Frankie instead of her.

She does help with rescuing Frankie and turning the Tikis against Farnum, and is with everyone when Farnum attempts to capture the Beast, now known as Andy, again at Monster High, leading to the school being severely damaged.

When Sparky damages the time portal before they jump in to return to 2014, due to having jumped in together with Toralei, Cleo and Toralei are accidentally fused together into the freaky fused hybrid, Cleolei, with neither of them having powers that are set off dangerously, but instead they just feud while sharing the same mouth. Neighthan Rot becomes their tutor to try to have them talk things out with him similar to how he did it with guidance counselors at his previous schools. Cleolei soon becomes a prisoner of Sparky's Creation 4.0 when it attacks her and the other freaky fused hybrids of Frankie's friends, with Cleolei being the first victim after it angers Creation 4.0 with a camera flash. When Frankie uses her own life force to electrocute and deactivate Creation 4.0, Cleolei is freed and defused back into Cleo and Toralei, but her actions fatally drain Frankie, and she dies soon after. Cleo can barely believe that Frankie's death really happened.
Using her good times she had with Frankie, Cleo is able to help revive her. Afterwards, she helps finish the play on Monster High's history, and welcomes Avea and the other hybrids to Monster High with open arms.
Cleo leads her fellow Fearleaders: Clawdeen, Draculaura, and Frankie, as they cheer on Sirena and Lagoona during the swim meet, and falls victim to Toralei's gossip about the Wolf siblings having were-fleas, leading to her falling into the pool with the other Fearleaders and being shocked by accident by Frankie, much to Toralei's amusement. Cleo joins everyone for the celebration of the new-found friendship between Haunted High and Monster High, being taught how to act like a pirate by Vandala Doubloons, but does not show as much enthusiasm as Frankie or Ghoulia, convincing Vandala they've got a lot of work ahead of them.
Cleo is extremely excited to attend the Comet Crystal Gala in Boo York City. She invites her boyfriend, Deuce Gorgon, to go with her. Deuce expresses anxiousness towards being surrounded by Cleo's high class family,who he knows do not like him. Cleo assures him that she is not embarrassed of him and their love is unchangeable. Cleo invited her ghoul friends, Clawdeen, Draculaura, Catty, Operetta and Frankie to go along with her and Deuce. In Boo York, the De Niles meet with the Ptolemy family. Cleo is annoyed with Deuce's informal greeting to Madame Ptolemy, and that he wore headphones with rap music on during the meet-and-greet; much to the Ptolemys' disdain. The next morning Nefera and Mouscedes host a brunch for the everyone,except Deuce is missing. Cleo listens to Seth Ptolemy's poetry, and nearly falls asleep from boredom. She is angry when Deuce arrives in swimming wear, and has to borrow an oversized coat to enter the brunch. Cleo is unaware that her sister is setting Deuce up to look a fool; Cleo is furious when Deuce's shenanigans necessitate firefighters.
Later that day Cleo looks through dresses to choose for the night's gala. She is in better moods towards Deuce when he arrives, though he is miserable after everything that's happened. He tells her he's realized how unworthy he is to be dating an elegant princess and says the right thing to do is break up. Cleo passionately disagrees but Deuce determinedly throws the Egyptian chin ornament she'd given him into the fire place. He leaves Cleo with a broken heart and tears.
We next see her in the hotel room, alone, crying. Nefera comes in to see if she's ready for the gala (and to gloat), but is shocked when Cleo screams that she isn't going without Deuce. Nefera then pontificates to Cleo about her family name to convince her to buck up and forget him (and also to protect her designs on the crown); after which Cleo resolves to go, and deletes the photo of her and Deuce she took that day.
Cleo's first generation 2 webisode appearance is in her bedroom, hosting her very own talk show! She also has the best possible guest to interview... herself! Cleo switches personas between "hostess" and "guest" by switching chairs and donning or doffing her glasses. During the interview, Cleo tells us that she's 6000 years old, her father is Ramses de Nile "of the Egyptian De Niles", and she just spent about a millenium in a tomb. She also tells us about Draculaura taking her to Monster High, and the new friends she's made: Draculaura, Clawdeen, Frankie, Lagoona, and Ari.
Cleo is the first monster Draculaura, Frankie and Clawdeen find with the Monster Mapalogue in her pyramid tomb. True to herself as always, she brings up a personal chef and masseuse after being told the new school has all the essentials. Despite the ghouls shaking their heads no in unison, she still befriends and tours along with them, also finding Lagoona Blue and Deuce Gorgon through the Mapalogue (and getting accidentally rocked out by the latter). Later, when Moanica D'Kay and her horde of zomboys attack the ghouls, she helps fight them off with the use of her wraps. This ability also comes up later on the dance floor.

TV special gallery
- In the original version of Cleo from Generation 1, in the webisodes, she has the right part of her halter top in her 'Basic', 'Signature' (which the side is also acknowledged as the "left-hand" side) crossing over to the left side (also acknowledged as "right-hand side"), just like the doll series of her 'Basic' doll assortment of " 'Signature' outfits". But in the webisodes, when she is facing the left-hand side of her body, her body turned to the right side, it literally looks like it is on the other side, up until the late Volume 3 webisodes. In the CGI TV specials, the right-hand side halter strap instead crosses over to the other side, unlike the doll, properly for creative license or "artistic license".
- The 3D TV specials has Cleo's 'Basic' halter top with more glitter than what it appears as in the original 2D animation and webisodes, closer to the doll line.
- In the computer-generated, computer-animated, 3D TV specials, the nail polish color of her 'Basic' appearance is not light purple, but instead deep red that looks almost black. This was the nail color for Frankie's original 'Basic' look.
- The Volume 5 lining made Cleo's hair much straighter to keep in line with being more accurate to the doll line, and without the "bottom swoop" or bottom curl.
- In the original reboot Signature series of Cleo, she now sports almost-solid-black hair with streaks of real gold rather than black hair with light brown streaks and gold streaks.
