Super-fans are very passionate. They live, breathe, and wear that fandom like a badge of honor. Of course, they also proudly display it on their smartphones.
No matter what phone you have, there’s a case out there to support your favorite TV show or movie. Here are 25 of our favorite phone cases for every pop culture fandom.
If you want to catch ‘em all on a phone case, pick up the Apex Pokemon Phone Case ($10.29). Designed for the iPhone 6, this model features possibly every character in the Pokemon ecosystem.
2. Harry Potter
To cast a spell over a super-fan, you’re going to need the proper tools. Maybe this Harry, Hermione, and Ron case ($31.50) has just the magic you’re looking for. It can put three of the most recognizable characters from "Harry Potter" on any iPhone 6.
3. The Walking Dead
If you’ve invested in seven seasons of "The Walking Dead" (and endured the first half of season 7), you deserve to invest in a "Walking Dead" phone case. There are ones with quotes, characters, and even a few curse words, but this one ($29.16) can convey that feeling when your favorite character gets killed off so perfectly.
4. Doctor Who
You don't have to travel through space and time to find a “Doctor Who”-themed case that will fit your particular phone. This Tardis Phone Case (starts at $9.95) from Sugarloaf Graphics is available to fit almost any iPhone or Galaxy model. It can even be personalized, so you’ll know which Whovian it belongs to.
5. Wonder Woman
The Amazon princess deserves the coolest phone case. Designed for the iPhone and Galaxy, this Wonder Woman case ($27.96) definitely won’t be invisible to friends or foes. That’s probably because it bears that recognizable gold W, surrounded by classic red and blue.
6. Star Wars
May the Force be with you—or at least your phone, if you have one of these “Star Wars” cases ($6.49). The collection includes Darth Vader, R2-D2, C-3P0, and Chewbacca options for the iPhone 4/4s and 5. Each one is limited edition and officially licensed, so please adjust your ringtone accordingly.
7. Stranger Things
"Stranger Things" is making fans nostalgic for 1980s technology. Good luck trying to find a case for an 80s-era cell phone, though. For those using today’s technology, there’s this Eggo iPhone case ($26.04). It conveys your love for the Netflix hit and breakfast, all in one protective case.
8. The X-Files
The truth may be out there or it may be in your pocket, if it sports this "X-Files"-themed smartphone case ($22). Designed for iPhone and Galaxy models, it simply reads, “Girls Don't Like Boys, Girls Like Aliens And Dana Scully.”
9. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Anya may have had a fear of rabbits, but you shouldn't fear iPhone scratches with this “I’ve Got A Theory” case ($25). Perfect for Buffy fans, it's available to fit almost every type of iPhone, from the 4/4s to the new 7.
10. Wes Anderson
Wes Anderson has amassed a pretty big following because his films know how to use visuals, style, and Bill Murray. If you're in that group, you should appreciate Characters of W ($31.50), which compiles most of Anderson’s quirky characters into one iPhone 6 case.
We've got one! Not a ghost, of course—but a really cool phone case ($26.04) modeled after the “Ghostbusters” ghost trap. Designed for iPhone models from the 4/4s to the 7, it won’t contain actual ghosts or your excitement for the film franchise.
So this iPhone case probably won’t fit into your back pocket all that easily, but sometimes you need to suffer for Batman. However, the Batman Mask Case ($9.95) will protect your iPhone 5, 6, or 7 from bumps, dents, and scratches.
13. Twin Peaks
FBI Special Agent Dale Bartholomew Cooper was never without his trusty tape recorder. You won’t be either, with your own version of Dale Cooper's Tape Recorder (Diane) iPhone Case ($6.51). Made for both the iPhone and Galaxy, you can use this to talk to Diane or any of the others listed in your contacts.
There are so many great Pixar flicks, it’s hard to pick one to carry in your pocket. With this P is for Pixar case ($31.50), you won’t have to choose just one—but you will need an iPhone or Galaxy smartphone. Otherwise, it features all sorts of great characters from “Toy Story,” “Up,” “Cars,” “Monsters Inc.,” and much more.
Again—why choose just one Disney character to put on your smartphone, when you can smoosh a few into one case? Available for iPhone and Galaxy devices, this Tsum Tsum phone case ($15.99) features many classic characters in their latest collectible form.
16. Gilmore Girls
Most "Gilmore Girls" fans either loved or hated the revival. However, everyone can agree that this “Babette Ate Oatmeal” case ($19.99) is awesome. Modeled after one of Kirk’s creations, it works with the iPhone 5/5s and features a spot for up to three credit cards.
17. Guardians of the Galaxy
You can rock out the "Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 " from your phone, as well as on it. This Awesome Phone Case ($19) should definitely get you hooked on a feeling to watch the movie—repeatedly.
18. Big Hero 6
Fans of the comic or film can carry a little piece of “Big Hero 6” everywhere they go with this Tadashi Hamada Chip Case ($19). If you think the film has universal appeal, get a load of this case; it's available for the iPhone and Galaxy, as well as LG and HTC phones.
19. Parks and Recreation
Treat yo' self to this "Parks and Recreation" iPhone 6 case ($31.50). Made by Society6, it sports a slim profile and all sorts of cartoony nods to the classic TV sitcom, including Li'l Sebastian.
20. Breaking Bad
Don’t be chicken to show people that you still love “Breaking Bad.” This Los Pollos Hermanos phone case ($34.95) won’t fit a flip phone, but it should accommodate almost any iPhone or Galaxy. Just know that the iPhone model has an extra padded silicone sleeve, yo!
21. The Evil Dead
Most people probably wouldn’t want to put this creepy case ($55) into their back pocket. However, fans of "The Evil Dead" franchise would welcome a case that would put the power (or at least likeness) of the Necronomicon into their smartphone. Viktor Makov crafts these for almost any type of smartphone and sells them over on Etsy.
22. Willie Wonka
This Wonka Bar Phone Case ($7.59) is just the ticket for anyone who loves Willie Wonka, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," or Roald Dahl. Designed for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6, it sports the famous Wonka Bar, with the golden ticket, of course.
It’s not a TV show or a movie, but LEGO has a massive following that spans several age groups. The Belkin LEGO iPhone Case (starts at $44.99) would certainly please any of those fans, since it actually encourages master builders to attach creations right to the back of the case.
Fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic sleuth will definitely want to pick up this Sherlock Door Case ($9.97). It's elementary, my dear! Inspired by the 221B Baker Street door, it’s available for every type of iPhone.
Of all of the TV shows and movies we researched for this piece, nothing had more phone case options than "Friends"—yes, the 20 year old 90's sitcom. There were cases with quotes, the apartment peephole, and even the Central Perk logo. However, one of our favorites ($25) only needs one word to make any “Friends” fan smile.
