Katy Perry's Roar was filmed at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden and featured Perry trying to survive in a jungle after her plane crashed and a tiger attacks her partner. Her character resembles the protagonist from Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.
California Gurls features Perry as a game piece in Candyfornia, whose settings are inspired in part by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the board game Candy Land. It's most famous for the scene in which Perry defeats an army of gummy bears by using whip cream guns attached to her breasts.
Wide Awake opens with Perry going to her dressing room, which changes into a labyrinth with various obstacles. The maze is part of a pop-goth fantasy world in which Perry must confront herself and escape.
Firework was filmed in Budapest and opens with Perry gazing down upon a city from a palatial balcony, singing into the night. Teenagers below struggle with fears and insecurities. Fireworks burst from inside Katy's body, inspiring young people throughout the city to ignite their own fireworks. One by one, the characters find the strength to do what they were afraid to do.
