She wears a forest green mini-skirt with black tights underneath with a dark green baby doll t-shirt and black 5" inch ankle boots. She has three gold bangles on her right hand and five silver bangles on her left hand. A white choker with a gold star hanging in the middle with five piercings on her right ear and seven on her left ear. Her hair is in light waves that reach her waist that is held back with a baby blue headband with red hearts on the right side.
PersonalityEarlier on, she was selfish and mean just like her popular friends. In Reign Storm, she's confused for a while about why Sam and Tucker treat her uneasily, but then they remind her that she used to treat them terribly. However, her descent into unpopularity begins to change her into a nicer, less egotistical person to the people around her, making new, better friends while looking upon her former friends with disdain and disgust. She also becomes more compassionate and caring, going from just wanting to get revenge on ghosts like Danny Phantom, to endangering herself to protect Amity Park from ghost attacks. Valerie is extremely stubborn and hot-tempered, as well as very persistent and dangerous. Not even her dad can stop her dedication to hunting ghosts. If necessary, she manipulates people if it's required or it's helpful, like taking advantage of Tucker knowing ghost hunters and Dani having connections with Danny. Her anger is also something to be feared, like getting revenge on Danny ruining her new shirt by sending Kwan out to hurt him in Shades of Gray. She holds strong grudges, too, as she has never forgiven Danny Phantom for ruining her life. As time goes by, though, Valerie becomes better at supressing her fiery emotions, especially when she has to team up with her least favorite ghost or makes occasional truces with him. Danny and his friends might see her as a foe, but Valerie thinks of herself as the hero, even though she's actually an anti-hero. Valerie truly means well and is positive that Danny and all ghosts are evil, so her hatred motivates her to hunt them down. Although more fierce and harsh in the way she treats enemies than Danny, she does have the right intentions of saving everyone from harm. Sometimes, her firm stance in her beliefs gets shaken up. She strongly trusts that Vlad isn't a ghost or a bad guy, but when she finds out the truth, she is shocked and immediately decides that she'll get him back for his deceit. While certain that torturing humans is wrong, she struggles over whether letting a half-human/half-ghost be killed is morally right, only finally agreeing to it after Danny persuades her. Valerie isn't completely aware about many things concerning ghosts, yet she is sure that it's her duty to ward them off from innocent people, like her father and her crush, Danny. After the events of Phantom Planet, she officially became apart of Team Phantom, and accepted Danny and Sam for who/what they are. After Phantom Planet, she begins dating Tucker Foley.
Parental BondingHer first appearance was in the second episode, though she only appeared and talks for a few seconds, accepting Tucker's invitation to the dance because Kwan decided to go with a different girl. Later, it's implied that Tucker, overshadowed by Danny, breaks off their plans so that he can take Sam to the dance.
Shades of Gray
Valerie Gray was once a rich, popular girl at Casper High until the appearance of a huge Ghost Dog at Axion, a large laboratory facility where her father worked, appeared. Danny tries to catch the dog, but the two of them cause so much ruckus and damage, that her father, Damon Gray, loses his job. Due to his job loss, she and her father have little money, and thus her popularity status from the in-crowd plummets. Valerie blames her misfortunes on Danny Phantom, thus dedicating herself to hunting ghosts for the rest of her life. Unbeknownst to her, Vlad Masters/Plasmius takes advantage of her grudge and has secretly supplied her with various ghost-hunting weaponry, helping her to fight Danny and allowing Vlad to spy on Danny in secret for his own plans.
Life LessonsLate to school after fighting each other in their alter-egos, Danny and Valerie are forced to become parents of a sack of flour for a one-week school assignment. At the same time, Skulker, ghost hunter extraordinaire, decids to pit Danny Phantom and Valerie against each other in a contest, the winner earning the privilege of becoming his prey. Valerie is busy with two jobs, and forces a partially-unknowing Danny to have the sack for most of the time, much to Danny's chargin. Finally pushed to the brink of frustration, Danny gives Valerie the sack, complaining that she needs to do some work. After several failed attempts to make the two fight, Skulker then realizes that both Danny and Valerie considered the flour sack as very valuable, and in one last resort he kidnaps the sack and frames Danny of stealing it with the hopes of at last, finding the winner. However, things don't go his way, and in the end he decides to capture both Danny and Valerie into the Ghost Zone to be his prey. After getting through booby traps and escaping Skulker's Island, the two eventually figure out how to work together and finally manage to defeat Skulker together. Later, Danny apologizes to Valerie, and they are able to get a C for their somewhat destroyed sack. In this episode, it is revealed that Valerie worked in the Nasty Burger as the mascot of the restaurant to make extra money.
By Reign Storm, Valerie gains a friendship with Danny Fenton, which develops into having a crush on him. Vlad pulls her to the side and reveals that he is giving her the ghost hunting equipment. Courageously, she tries to fight against Pariah Dark's army to save Danny and Vlad. She also attempts to fight against Pariah Dark himself with the ecto-skeleton, but Danny stops her by revealing her secret identity to her father. At the end, Valerie lets Sam know, that Sam better make her move on Danny, or else she would.
The Ultimate EnemyIn The Ultimate Enemy , her Valerie's future self has become Amity Park's defender. When Dark Danny broke Amity Park's enhanced Ghost Shield, she tried to hunt him, but he easily sent her away. Though present Danny was able to prevent her from hitting the wall, she then fell to the ground. Before she became unconscious, she says she almost forgot how cute young Danny was. Fortunately, that future was canceled thanks to the work of Danny and Clockwork.
Flirting with Disaster
In Flirting with Disaster, Valerie and Danny date for a brief period of time, neither knowing Technus is the one pushing the two together while he goes about his plans for world domination. In one instance, Technus attacks Danny with Valerie's old suit, but when Danny destroys it, Valerie thinks he was trying to kill her, making her vow to stop Danny Phantom stronger. When Technus hooks up with a satellite in space, he upgrades Valerie's suit, giving her an advanced red and black-striped one, and the power to change into it at will. This was meant to further distract Danny from his own dastardly plans, as she was now even more dangerous to Danny Phantom then she was before. After Technus's defeat, Valerie let Danny know that she didn't think she was ready to start a deeper relationship with him, breaking both of their hearts.
D-StabilizedIn D-Stabilized, Valerie was hired by Vlad to seek and capture Dani Fenton/Phantom. Vlad tells her that Dani wants to destroy him. Using a ghost detector, she instead finds a human Dani, and is unaware she is the same Dani Phantom. When mistaking Valerie as a hostile situation, Danielle runs from her into an unstable building about to collapse, where she saves Valerie's life when the hunter followed and almost perished from within from falling debris. After exposing herself as a half-ghost, Valerie captures Danielle and uses her to lure out Danny Phantom, capturing him as well. She then ships her off to Vlad until Danny convinces Valerie that she is innocent. Calling a temporary truce, the two work together to save her from Vlad Plasmius's clutches. By the end, Valerie discovers that Vlad Masters and Vlad Plasmius are one in the same, and vows to take him down as well.
She makes a final cameo appearance in Phantom Planet. First she gets pushed aside by Vlad's Master Blasters team, and eventually takes part in saving the world from a deadly asteroid. Danny Phantom reveals himself to the world leaders and a select group of people as Danny Fenton. She is seen cheering along with everyone else in one of the final scenes. She is later officially began to date Tucker and became apart of Team Phantom.
As a normal human being, she has no powers at all, but she does have several skills and weapons she uses to hunt ghosts.
It is revealed that she is a 9th-degree black belt in various forms of fighting. In addition to her fighting skills, she has proven to be capable to fight ghosts like the Fright Knight and Vlad Plamius, using her suit and her fighting skills, and even Vlad himself stated that "she really is good at this" when she fought the Fright Knight. She was also seen fighting her own ghost hunting gear when it was manipulated by Technus.
Being only human, Valerie doesn't have any superhuman abilities, but, after she decided to become a ghost hunter, she begins to exercise intensively, and becomes very athletic. When she exercises, she motivates herself with her hatred towards ghosts.
As a ghost-hunter, she has a wide array of ghost hunting gear. Originally, she had a pink ghost-hunting suit with a silver flying board, made by Plasmius, with a wide array of ecto-guns. Later, the suit was destroyed by Danny and replaced by a black and red-armored suit made by Technus that can be summoned from the air, with more fire power and the capability to take her into outer space in less than two minutes.
Original SuitThis suit was made for her by Plasmius; it was retractable, and placed in her bag when she presses a button on her watch, making her able to change at will if she has her suit with her. The suit also prevents her from burning up from the enormous friction heat caused by her fast movement on her board and increases her durability since she had only small bruises and considerably small wounds after her fight in the Reign Storm.
The suit had also come with a powerful ghost-hunting arsenal which consists of:
- Ecto Grenade Launcher:is Valerie's primary weapon, the one she uses all the time, as well as the most powerful of all her arsenal. It’s basically a bazooka that shoots a powerful pink anti-ghost ray made to hurt ghosts. Its blast can hit Danny even when he is intangible. This weapon can fire different kind of ammo, like:
- Pink ghost ray: a powerful pink ghost ray capable of great damage.
- Missiles: tracking ecto-missiles
- Explosive energy rings: this is only seen in a video that Vlad was watching in the episode Kindred Spirits.
- Ecto guns: it's one of the most varied weapons on her arsenal. She has several models of them with different levels of power.
- Anti-ecto Shuriken-like disks: they're used only once, in the episode Shades of Gray. Are anti-ecto shuriken-like disks that can cut ghosts.
- Flying board: is one of the most important weapons on her arsenal. It's a high tech flying board that she uses to fly and hunting ghost on the air, integrated into her boots. It has an automatic pilot that grabs her in case she falls. Also have some other gadgets like:

- Anti-ecto tracker missiles: the ones included in her board. Though they're not as powerful as a real missile, but they can cause a lot of damage if they hit their target. They seem to replace themselves every time are fired.
- Multi cannon weapon: a multi cannon weapon with the same power or even more than her ecto-grande launcher, used on "Life Lessons".
- Tracker Mask: the mask that comes with the suit not only hides her face; it also works as a tracker that she uses to find Danny and every ghost she hunts.
- Ghost gauntlets: Her hands glow in Pink Energy, then hits her target. She use it to hit the Fright Knight in Reign Storm. It is possible if she could fire a Ghost Rays with the gauntlets.

- Grenades: anti-ghost grenades.
- Red "Plasmius Thermos": Plasmius gave her a red Plasmius Thermos (though never called that way or by any other name by the matter) that he created himself, obviously based on the original Fenton Thermos, she only tried to use it once, but she couldn't open it.
- Boomerang: A "boo-merang" based on the Fenton's desing.
- Grappling Gun: A gun-like device that fires a grappling hook across far distances
- Ecto-Bolas: From Spanish bola, "ball", also known as boleadoras, are a throwing weapons, made of two weights on the ends of a cord, designed to capture animals by entangling their legs. -This weapons was never used on the series, so wether if it has a special effect or not, remains unknown.
New SuitAfter her first suit was destroyed by Danny whilst Technus, the Technopathic Ghost, was using it, in which the latter gives her a new, more powerful one in order to distract Danny from his own agendas. However unlike her first one, which was just a pink suit, the new one is advanced, red and black-striped armor, with a sinister, almost demonic-like design.
Her new armor suit comes with new weapons and gadgets are more integrated to her suit, and include:
- New board with grapnel: Her new board has a semi-like V appearance and it can fly to a great speed since she was able to get to outer space the first time she use it in just a matter of seconds and it can appear and disappear at her will, this means the board can reasonably travel over 25,000 mph, the escape velocity of Earth's gravitational field. In Phantom Planet, her board was destroyed when the Master's Blasters push her aside, it's unknown if she fix it or not. Her new board comes with:

- Superhuman endurance: It also increases her durability, as she was able to survive without serious damages after having been knocked out by Danny's ghost stinger and enter the atmosphere without any trouble, and allows her to travel in space.
- Self sustenance: the suit provides her sustenance (oxygen).
- Helmet lantern: Basically, a helmet that gives off light in dark places.
- Reflecting ghost shield: she can create a reflecting blue ghost shield powerful enough to reflect Vlad's ghost rays.
- Mind summoning: Technus also gave the suit the ability to be materialized around her at her command (it can 'appear' and wrap itself around her whenever she wants) without having to transport it in her bag. Her hover board is like this as well, simply appearing out of nowhere.
She had dated Danny for a brief amount of time, ultimately with them both ending it for both of the other's safety. In the beginning she had blamed Danny for all of her misfortune when Cujo had destroyed her dad's work. But, thanks to that event she had learned what real friends are and how happy she truely is.
