|Be natural. Be yourself! And you'll be spot-on!|
|—Lagoona Blue to Frankie Stein in "New Ghoul @ School"|
Lagoona Blue is a 2010-introduced and all-around character. She and her younger siblings, of which there are four, are an unusual kind of sea monster, as they are the offspring of a sea monster and an ocean nymph. Lagoona is a student at Monster High, having come all the way from the Great Scarrier Reef to expand her horizons. And she's done so admirably. If there is one person in the entire school who could befriend anyone, it's Lagoona. She is patient and considerate, but does not sugarcoat her message or allows anyone to walk over her. Which, along with her considerable skill, is why she's been chosen as the captain of the Swim Team. The one exception to her no-nonsense attitude is her boyfriend, Gillington "Gil" Webber. She gives him leeway beyond her standards despite the harm it does her because she is aware that his home situation is far from ideal. She is not happy with the situation, but she knows she would also not be happy without him.

In the anime adaptation she is voiced by Aina Kusuda.
Lagoona grew up in the Great Scarrier Reef as the oldest daughter of a sea monster and an ocean nymph in a warm and supportive network of extended family. She was an aquadancer until the age of twelve and a top performer in her age range along with her then-close friend Kala Mer'ri. Kala's family situation was not as rosy as Lagoona's and unbeknownst to Lagoona her happiness made Kala resent her and eventually sabotage an important performance that left Lagoona with a life-long case of chorophobia. Kala is one of the reasons that in her teens Lagoona sought a high school somewhere else. Another reason was an earnest desire to learn more about the world outside the Great Scarrier Reef. To this end, she attended an open day at Monster High and was convinced by the then-captain of the swim team to take the plunge.
As fate would have it, one of Lagoona's earliest accomplishments at Monster High was becoming the new captain of the swim team, presumably when her predecessor graduated. Gillington "Gil" Webber, a river monster and fellow swimmer. This would prove one of the worst trials of her young life, because sea monsters and river monsters have an age-old tradition of not getting along and Gil's parents hate her. Gil's been cautious in navigating the dilemma, which regularly unbalances Lagoona, to the point she once magically became a river monster in hopes of ending the hurt once and for all. Although Gil's been doing better as a boyfriend, the trouble with his family remains far from over.She's done an excellent job leading and putting the team in the spotlight. Around the time of her promotion, she also became close friends with the fear squad, who would have her back as often as she'd have theirs. As well, she met and entered a relation with
On a lighter note, intervention by Posea Reef guided Lagoona back to the Great Scarrier Reef to confront the past. After years, Lagoona finally learned what brought on Kala's hatred and managed to restore their friendship. It didn't solve her stage fright, but made her come to terms with it.
If there is one person in the entire school who could befriend anyone, it's Lagoona. She has a very friendly and laid-back personality, even her clothes reflect her easygoing nature. She is patient and considerate, but does not sugarcoat her message or allows anyone to walk over her. She is almost never outright mean, but she is passionate about friendship, and will defend her friends fiercely. Which, along with her considerable skill, is why she's been chosen as the captain of the Swim Team.
The one exception to her no-nonsense attitude is her boyfriend, Gillington "Gil" Webber. She gives him leeway beyond her standards despite the harm it does her because she is aware that his home situation is far from ideal. She is not happy with the situation, but she knows she would also not be happy without him.
Lagoona is also an environmentalist; trash and pollution in the ocean anger her, and she shows sympathy to many aquatic elements, including fish, frogs and all water creatures. She loves helping water creatures and wishes for the ocean to be clean.
Lagoona has pale blue scales that cover her entire body, as well as webbed hands and fins protruding from her lower arms and legs. She has blond curly hair that's streaked blue due to the chlorine in the school's pool, as well as freckles that dot her face, and green eyes. In the Generation 2 reboot, she's restyled with blue-teal or teal-blue eyes, which means a bluish green to greenish blue. Lagoona wears tomboyish clothes such as shorts with fishnet attachments and jackets with mid-quartered sleeves and fish-styled hoodies. She wears a baggy sweatshirt or sweater-like t-shirt with a number "13" on it by the time of the reboot. Also, in the reboot, she portrays paler lips.
Lagoona's father "doesn't really live on land. For sure, he's got a little beach house where Lagoona Blue lives. It's got a killer dock that goes out over the water." her School's Out diary, her mother is an ocean nymph who "still lives in the same scary sweet little grotto as she did when dad met and married her. Being a nymph means that mom can leave the water and hang out on land as long as she doesn't travel too far from her grotto otherwise she gets really weak". Before the exchange to Scaremerica, Lagoona's family was extremely supportive of her and her passions, and were overall a happy family. Her father Wade Blue and siblings Kelpie, Dewey, Squirt, and Tadpole Blue appear in the Monster High Diaries book Lagoona Blue and the Big Sea Scarecation, and the TV special Great Scarrier Reef.According to
In the Monster High book series, Lagoona's parents live in Australia, but she lives with her uncle (unnamed) and her aunt Coral in Salem. Lagoona had moved to Salem as a foreign exchange student from "down under".
In "Parent-Creature Conference" the ghouls tell Slo Mo that he is supposed to be posing as Lagoona's Great-Aunt Lantic; this relative may or may not really exist. In her 'Basic' diary, Lagoona mentions having a few cousins 'living up north'.
Although Lagoona is one of the kindest students at Monster High and thought highly of by many, outside of the fear squad her strongest connections are exclusively with fellow water-type monsters, such as Gillington "Gil" Webber, her swim team mate and boyfriend, and Sirena Von Boo, another swim team mate, and Kala Mer'ri, a childhood friend.
Lagoona's involvement with the fear squad started as several loose friendships that came together when the team was revived by Cleo de Nile, Frankie Stein, Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura, and Ghoulia Yelps as team assistant. Lagoona herself actually was invited for the new fear squad, but she had to decline on account of having just prior been voted captain of the swim team. Until the fear squad's first success by getting to go to the Gloom Beach competition, Lagoona was their one supporter, and even thereafter remained something akin to an honorary member. One notable action of hers, possibly remembering her own treatment at the hands of Kala, was take a stand for the fear squad against Toralei Stripe's ridicule. She made herself another of the werecat's enemies this way, when before Toralei had no intent to target her.
Kala is Lagoona's childhood friend and aquadance partner from when they were about twelve years old. The two had a good relation, though not good enough for Kala to entrust Lagoona with an important secret, namely that she is the daughter of the kraken that was believed to terrorize the Great Scarrier Reef. Rather, his reputation was a mixture of prejudice and the Mer'ris' chosen coping strategy. For Kala, keeping people in the dark about her identity was the only way she knew how to live a semi-normal life and it hurt her tremendously to be near Lagoona, who at the time was a better dancer, who would join in on saying bad things about the kraken, and who could openly enjoy the support of her immediate and extended family. To even things out, she sabotaged Lagoona's first major aquadance performance, ensuring Lagoona would never dare dance on stage again. Lagoona fled to Monster High some years later, finding peace in the all-accepting climate at the school, but was forced back due to circumstances beyond her control. After unintentionally upstaging Kala again, Lagoona had to fight through a dangerous confrontation to finally get the truth out of her former partner. The promise that Monster High could give Kala the same welcome as it had done Lagoona helped in calming her down enough to talk things out. Apologies were exchanged and their friendship restored.
Sirena became a close friend of Lagoona after the former transferred to Monster High. Knowing little of either her heritages, Lagoona helped get her acquainted with sea culture. Lorna McNessie. A positive was that Sirena supported Lagoona in her investigation, which resulted in them finding out that Gil and Lorna are strictly friends and that Lorna already is with a boy named Finn.The two also spent a lot of time together in the days leading up to Lagoona's leave for the exchange program. A negative to that was that, in trying to look out for Lagoona, Sirena worsened Lagoona's fear of leaving Gil with the newly arrived lake monster
Lagoona's pet is a piranha named Neptuna and who is carried around in a fishbowl purse secretly. She is feisty and enjoys nipping other monsters when they least expect it.
Aside from one time eyeing Archer like half the female student body, Lagoona's heart is steadfastly with Gil. Lagoona fell for him first, drawing romantic images of the two of them in her clawculus book and daydreaming out their scenarios. Gil positively took note of this and borrowed the book to write an invitation to a date in it while Lagoona was out of it. She accepted, which was the start of their relation.
What with Lagoona being a saltwater monster and Gil a freshwater monster, two species with a history of not getting along, Toralei forced out the truth in retaliation for Lagoona's defense of the fear squad. Lagoona gave him an ultimatum: either he'd stand up for them, or he should forget about her. In the end, Gil chose her. In return, his parents enrolled him in a different school to keep the two apart, leaving Lagoona unconsolable. However, Gil proved resilient to this method and eventually his parents allowed him to go back to Monster High.their romance has been a troubled one with most of the damage hitting Lagoona. Specifically, modern-day freshwater monsters are the ones looking down on saltwater monsters, causing Gil's parents to disapprove of Lagoona and Gil to be reluctant to meet Lagoona's family. Gil kept these views a secret from Lagoona until she forced it out. Gil's initial solution was to keep his relation hidden from his parents and to lie to Lagoona, but
The next incident came when Lagoona invited Gil and several of her friends to spend spring break in the Great Scarrier Reef. Gil, being his parents's son still, was reluctant to spend time in the ocean and meet Lagoona's family. It put even more strain on their relation, but circumstances that jeopardized his friends left Gil with no other choice than to singlehandedly swim all the way from Skull Shores to the Great Scarrier Reef and get help from Lagoona's parents. To her delight, it got him over his own prejudice. Any nagging from Gil's parents didn't reach Lagoona for a long time, but inevitably flared up again. Gil's father threatened to find a job outside of the Boonited States of Scaremerica and have the whole family come along to remove Lagoona out of his son's life. Afraid to lose him, Lagoona offered to become his friend instead if it meant they could keep seeing each other, but Gil declined. Lagoona's sorrow drew the attention of Howleen Wolf, who asked Gigi Grant to "make Gil's parents like Lagoona". The wish was fulfilled by turning Lagoona into their ideal daughter-in-law, starting with her becoming a freshwater monster. It worked well enough at first, but Gil grew displeased with how un-Lagoona-like Lagoona had become and the wish was undone shortly after.
