|Affiliation||Professor Pericles (formerly)|
|First appearance||SDMI: Where Walks Aphrodite|
|Played by||Tricia Helfer|
Amanda Smythe is a former Crystal Cove High School student who disguised herself as Aphrodite to get revenge on those who humiliated her at prom by bending the entire town to her will through her love potion.
Although she was considered quiet unnattractive in her youth, she grew up to be an attractive woman.
Her personality is warped by her past humiliation.
Years ago, she was a brilliant science student at Crystal Cove High School, who had braces and bad complexion problems. Her peers made her think she was going to be Prom Queen, then humiliated her by putting a fright-mask on her instead.
Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated
She researched a way to get revenge, coming up with a love-pheromone potion (with the help of Professor Pericles). She came back in the guise of Aphrodite to take over the town, get crowned Prom Queen, and then destroy the town. Unfortunately for her, Professor Pericles was only using her to further his own schemes. He helped Scooby-Doo free the gang from her influence with an antidote, and then they were able to trap her and apply the antidote to everyone else in town.
