Angelica Charlotte Pickles is a character voiced by voice actress Cheryl Chase in the Nickelodeon shows Rugrats and All Grown Up! and is among one of the series' original characters. She's a spoiled brat and the cousin of Tommy and Dil Pickles, and serves as the main antagonist of the series, but she's portrayed as an anti-heroine in the films who would side with the babies near the end against the respective main villains. In 2002 TV Guide declared Angelica Pickles ranked 7th in their list of "Top 50 Greatest Cartoon Characters of All Time".

Angelica's portrayed as the mean, bratty and ridiculously spoiled older cousin of Tommy and Dil Pickles (their dads are brothers). Depicted as a pigtailed blonde, Angelica serves as the main antagonist of the series who's known to be vain, conceited, self-centered, irritating, bossy, selfish, self-righteous, arrogant, and obnoxious yet beautiful. She derives pleasure from teasing the infants by providing ludicrous explanations to their ponderings on the workings of devices, objects, or even the world itself, around them, thus crafting the plot of many episodes. She also frequently takes advantage of the naïve, gullible babies, tricking them into assisting her in carrying out a plan or doing her bidding. However, she seems to be friends with Kimi. Angelica's outrageously spoiled by her indulgent, workaholic parents, Drew and Charlotte, who cater to her every whim nonstop. However, her Aunt Didi and Uncle Stu, especially her Aunt Didi, pay considerably more attention to Angelica and actually discipline her more often than the other adults on the show, including Drew and Charlotte (basically, Stu and Didi are more like parents to Angelica than her real parents are).

Angelica's main character hallmark is her beloved fashion doll, Cynthia, which she cherishes and speaks to as though it were real, and she owns many forms of merchandise spawned from the doll. The very thought of losing Cynthia horrifies her at times, as seen in Tricycle Thief, when she fought to keep her innocence so that the babies wouldn't let her go up in Chuckie's balloon. In The Seven Voyages of Cynthia she mentioned to Tommy that she would hurt anyone who took Cynthia. Angelica shares a friendship/rivalry with Susie Carmichael, who's better-liked by the infants and much more understanding and always more likely to provide them with truthful, logical explanations to their questions, due to the fact that Susie has been known to thwart her sinister plans. Angelica also thinks she's a very talented person, even though she's really not all that talented and is actually very irritating. In most episodes, her rude and bratty behavior often gets the best of her, which causes her to get into a lot of trouble, resulting in her parents to harshly punishing her until she learns her lesson. But, deep down, despite her normally bad behavior, Angelica has a good heart and truly does care about the babies (especially when they get picked on by someone other than her) and will, at times, do the right thing.

In All Grown Up, Angelica is depicted similarly to her original toddler portrayal in Rugrats, but has developed more maturity in her tastes and interests average for a girl her age. Angelica's still spoiled by her parents, but to a lesser degree and in an altered fashion from the previous series, and still habitually domineers her younger cousins and acquaintances and maintains her materialistic personality. Angelica also still behaves selfishly and grouchily, and still envies Susie Carmichael for her amazing singing voice and various other talents, although she is shown to be much nicer than in the original series. Angelica's goals and priorities throughout the episodes also have matured to fit her age, and strives to acquire a position amongst popular cliques at her school or impress boys, albeit she's still aided by the geeky, redheaded Harold (whom she and Susie had met when they were in preschool).

Angelica Pickles has not been a contender in any CBUB matches.
