Queen Tyr'ahnee, known better as the Martian Queen, does not appear in the original "Looney Tunes" shorts, but rather as a regular on the animated series, Duck Dodgers, based on one of those shorts. The white-haired Martian beauty is the ruler of Mars, and is obviously of the same species as her army commander, X-2 (alias Marvin the Martian), who works for her. She is voiced by Tia Carrere of Wayne's World fame.
The Queen's name comes from the word "tyranny", which is mentioned right at the moment she appears in the show's theme song.
Just as X-2's outfit is based on Ancient Roman armor, Queen Tyr'ahnee dresses like an Ancient Egyptian queen, a reference to Antony and Cleopatra. She also has a humanoid body shape and head—as do all Martian females on the show—while some males have cartoonish bodies and the classic "8-ball" head like X-2 (others are also taller and more humanoid and some are muscular in appearance). Like X-2 and all martians, Queen Tyr'ahnee has no visible mouth (or ears or noses for that matter), but in the episode "Win, Lose or Duck," it is revealed that she does own a toothbrush.
Tyr'ahnee was first seen in the series premiere, "The Trial of Duck Dodgers", and due to a misconception, she believes that Duck Dodgers (Daffy Duck) is what he claims to be—the most brilliant tactical mind in the universe.
By the episode "To Love a Duck," Tyr'ahnee has apparently been so impressed by Dodgers' continual victories that an obvious crush on him has blossomed, and so she has him captured because she wants him to be her king and husband; they will rule Mars together and be lovers forever. This upsets X-2, who has a crush on the Queen himself. In the series of tests the Queen organizes for Dodgers to prove his worthiness as her future lover, X-2 continually tries to harm Dodgers' progress, but to no avail. Eventually, X-2 tricks Dodgers into abandoning the idea by lying to him about the duties the King of Mars would have.
Tyr'ahnee is upset about being abandoned at the altar, and in a later episode, "The Queen Is Wild", she tries to lure Dodgers into being killed by kidnapping the Eager Young Space Cadet (Porky Pig). In the end, though, Tyr'ahnee spares Dodgers, as she still has feelings for him.
Tyr'ahnee apparently still has a crush on Dodgers, even after being told by I.Q. Hi that he's not exactly sure what she sees him as ("Deconstructing Dodgers"). However, as of the two-part episode "Of Course You Know This Means War and Peace", she is briefly removed from power by the power-hungry General Z-9 and his robotic assistant, Councilor Dish. When Mars was liberated by Commander X-2 and Duck Dodgers, she became aware of X-2's crush on her. They even planned to wed in the episode "Till Doom Do Us Part" (which immediately followed). By the end of the episode, though, her rather strong feelings for Dodgers are rekindled, and she cancels the wedding. Dodgers, however, has no interest in her by now, and when he tells her that, she responds by calling off the ceasefire between Earth and Mars.
