It is revealed in ''[[EP048|Holy Matrimony!]]'' that Jessie is almost identical in appearance to James's fiancée, [[Jessiebelle]], with the two of them having virtually identical faces and the only noticeable physical differences between them being eye color, hairstyle, and slightly different hair colors. Meowth in particular takes notice of this and frequently reminds Jessie of the fact throughout the episode, something she takes strong offense to due to Jessiebelle's reprehensible personality. Interestingly enough by the time the subject of Jessiebelle is breached again in ''[[DP002|Two Degrees of Separation!]]'' she seems to have forgotten about her doppelganger and needs Meowth to remind her of who she is. The resemblance between the two was further explored in ''[[DP153|The Treasure is All Mine!]]'' when she disguised herself as Jessiebelle in order to grant herself, James, and Meowth, entrance into one of James's family mansions without James having to do so himself.
 
Jessie is also known to be very vain and is also prone to explosive anger. She values her appearance, and she can get furious when her face or hair is damaged, such as in ''[[EP023|The Tower of Terror]]'', ''[[EP117|Don't Touch That 'dile!]]'', ''[[AG008|A Tail with a Twist]]'' or ''[[DP156|A Meteoric Rise to Excellence!]]''. When this happens, she may do things like beat up a Pokémon such as {{MTR}} or her {{TP|Jessie|Seviper}}. Furthermore, Jessie goes into a violent outrage whenever someone insults her beauty by calling her old, such as the episode ''[[EP040|The Battling Eevee Brothers]]'' when {{an|Misty}} calls Jessie an "old hag" (Japanese: ''oba-san''). She spat fire in extreme anger after Misty called her that name in that episode. She is also angered (compared to her companions, who are usually depressed when they fail at something) when missions are either failed or botched, which is a regular thing. This anger was intensely demonstrated in the Indigo League, Orange Islands and part of the Johto League story arcs. However, her anger tantrums started to become less intense over the next two story arcs. It should be noted that her short temper, while it has always been a part of her character, tended to appear far more intense in the dub than in the original, which is a contrast of Lillis's vocal performance to Hayashibara's.

Starting in [[Hoenn]], Jessie became a [[Pokémon Coordinator]], entering every contest that she could. She frequently made it to the battle round, but usually lost there. However, in ''[[DP022|Borrowing on Bad Faith]]'', she finally succeeded in winning an (unofficial) contest by using [[Dawn's Ambipom|Ash's Aipom]], which she had saved earlier in the episode. And, in ''[[DP061|Team Shocker!]]'', she won an official contest with her Dustox at [[Solaceon Town]]. Later in ''[[DP102|Shield with a Twist]]'', she won a ribbon with help of her Yanmega. She has [[Contest Pass]]es to compete in the Hoenn, Kanto, and Sinnoh regions.
*Fourth battle:
"''Hold it right there, brat! Our Boss is in a meeting! You better not disturb him!"''<br>
"''Like always…always..."''<br>
"''Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light! Again…Again..."''<br>

==Trivia==
* According to James in ''[[EP016|Pokémon Shipwreck]]'', Jessie is short for Jessica.
* Both Jessie and [[James]] have used a {{p|Charizard}} at separate times. They have used a third one together as well. However, none of the three remained in their care.

* In Sinnoh, she dressed up as a cowgirl and she was called Catherine Jessieburn. This is a direct reference to the legendary Hollywood actress {{wp|Katharine Hepburn}}.
* Jessie was the only member of the anime's main cast who traveled through Sinnoh with a Pokémon not in the extended Sinnoh Pokédex. In fact, she had two; {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}} and {{TP|Jessie|Seviper}}.
* Similar to [[Misty's special lure|Misty's]], Jessie also has a special lure being modeled after her, as seen in ''[[EP168|Hook, Line, and Stinker]]''.
* InJessie's hair color changed from red to magenta in ''[[AG093EP261|ClamperlHere's ofLookin at You, Wisdom!Elekid]]'' and all subsequent episodes. This episode was the first to feature digital colored animation. In all the hand-colored cel animated episodes before the latter, Jessie's hadhair {{wpcolor was red. Certain movies though, such as ''[[M07|sinusitis}}Destiny Deoxys]]'' and ''[[M08|Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]'', depict her hair to be red, possibly because of a different style in coloring.
* In the main series games, Jessie and [[James]] are the only characters from [[Generation I]] to appear only in that generation, as they do not reappear in [[Generation II]] and [[Generation IV]] when [[Kanto]] is revisited, and (being exclusive to {{game|Yellow}}) were not adapted into the [[Generation III]] {{v2|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} remakes.
* Jessie's hair color changed from red to magenta in ''[[EP261|Here's Lookin at You, Elekid]]''. This was because this episode was the first to feature digital colored animation, and was possibly due to Jessie's updated Sugimori artwork featuring magenta hair. In all the hand-colored cel animated episodes before the latter, Jessie's hair color was red. In certain movies though, such as ''[[M07|Destiny Deoxys]]'' and ''[[M08|Lucario and the Mystery of Mew]]'', depict her hair to be red, possibly because of a different style in coloring.
* Until ''[[DP171|Dawn of a Royal Day!]]'', every episode in which Jessie obtains a ribbon have been featured in episodes animated by 岩根雅明 ''Masaaki Iwane''.
* Out of all the Pokémon Jessie captured, she never actually weakened any of them with her Pokémon in battle; {{TP|Jessie|Lickitung}} one-hit-KO'd Arbok and never took any damage; {{TP|Jessie|Shellder}} was battled by [[James]] and his {{TP|James|Weezing}}; {{tp|Jessie|Wurmple}} was captured on the spot without any battling involved; {{TP|Jessie|Seviper}} was beaten up by Jessie ''herself''; {{TP|Jessie|Yanma}} was weakened by [[Tyler]] and his {{p|Piplup}}; {{TP|Jessie|Woobat}} was captured off-screen.
* In ''[[EP218|Plant It Now... Diglett Later]]'', Jessie claims to be 12 years old when an elderly woman claims to be 120, and Jessie reacts by saying "No! That's ten times my age!" However, Meowth replies "Now where did you learn that math?" implying she is older. In the dub of ''[[EP056|The Ultimate Test]]'' Jessie is said to be 17 years old.
