The Rise of Miss Power
The Rise of Miss Power is a special one-hour episode of the animated television show WordGirl. The movie aired on PBS on February 20, 2012. In reruns, the special is broken into two half-hour episodes of two segments each. The movie introduces Miss Power, a new villain unlike any WordGirl has ever seen: instead of being prone to malapropisms like her usual rogues' gallery, Miss Power is an eloquent yet sinister bully whom WordGirl does not immediately recognize as evil.
- "If I quit, I won't lose, so there, can't beat me, won't beat me, NEVER!"
- "And together, you and I were going to rule this planet in an awesome, 'We Get To Do Whatever We Want' kind of way!"
- "You don't deserve to wear this!" *Rips off WordGirl's star insignia*
- "You see that, everyone? WordGirl is done, finished, defeated! Miss Power rules!"
- "We're the ones with all the power, so that means we can do whatever we want to whoever we want!

- Miss Power: Citizens of Planet Earth, guess what? Someone new is in charge. Me.
- Man: Hey, what if we don't want you?
- Miss Power: You'll get to go to jail.
- Man: [gets taken away by Captain Giggle Cheeks] Hey!
- Miss Power: You guys aren't really smart enough to be running things on your own. You'll need a new leader. And guess who that is. I nominate me.
- Woman: We don't need a new leader. We have WordGirl! She can stop you.
- Miss Power: [laughs] No, she can't. I defeated WordGirl! And now this planet is mine! And if you don't like that, well, there's a nice, cozy jail cell for you. Just ask District Attorney Botsford.
- Sally: You know if you're all together. There's no way she'd be able to handle you.
- The Villians: Yeah!
- Sally: And guess what you are right now!
- The Villians: All together!
- Sally: Time to show this Miss Power why the rest of this city can't stand with you guys!
- Sally: Let's go get her! Charge!
- Miss Power: Right. Bring it on!
- WordGirl: So you're saying I'm going to be triumphant?
- Miss Power: Yeah. Yes, that's right you're going to be triumphant. Ha!
- WordGirl: I think so too. You know why? Because being triumphant actually means winning!
- Miss Power: What? No it doesn't.
- The Butcher: [offscreen] Oh yeah it does! WordGirl taught me that just last week!
