The Incredibles is a 2004 Pixar film directed by Brad Bird. It features Craig T. Nelson as Mr. Incredible, Hollie Hunter as Mrs. Incredible, Sarah Vowell as Violet Parr, Spencer Lee as Dash Parr, Jason Lee as Syndrome, and Samuel L Jackson as Frozone. A sequel to the film was released in 2018, which takes place immediately where the first film left off.


The film is set in a dystopian time period where 'supers' have been outlawed due to a string of incidents where superheroes were causing more harm than good. The Parr family are gifted with superpowers but have to hide them.

Main Characters

Characters introduced in the second film:


The Incredibles has a small fandom but is generally a beloved Pixar film. A little fanfiction has been written for Yuletide and there are over a hundred stories archived on AO3, many of which are crossovers with other superhero fandoms. The minor character Edna Mode is relatively popular in fanworks and memes (namely the "NO CAPES!").


Various pairings have appeared in the small fandom, including the canon pairing of Helen/Bob, and even crossover pairings are common in the fandom with other Disney or other animated films and television shows characters. Some fanon pairings that have appeared are Violet/Syndrome and Mirage/Syndrome. "Parrcest", which is incest between the Parr family members have also appeared: Violet/Helen, Violet/Dash, etc.

Mirage/Violet also appears to be quite popular, as the top three stories on sorted by favorites are of that pairing.[1]

The second film included a variety of new characters and new shipping possibilities, namely Evelyn Deavor/Helen Parr and Helen Parr/Stratogale.
