Melody Powers is a fictional spy character developed by Daria Morgendorffer and included in stories featured in the episodes "Cafe Disaffecto" and "The Old and the Beautiful". The character stories appear to be set during the Cold War, as she uses sex appeal and bloody brutality to fight communists.
Daria writing Melody Powers stories has also become a staple in fanfiction writing. Galen Hardesty probably gave the best rendition with Blood Oath of Patriots and Blood Oath of Patriots II: By Any Other Name . In Richard Lobinske's Last Summer and Falling Into College stories, Daria published a total of four Melody Powers stories with an action pulp magazine called Literature in Action.
Sometimes in fan fiction, Melody is written as a self-insertion or Mary Sue of Daria herself. Other times, Melody is written as a truly independent character.
