Added DiffLines:

** She's equally liked by Mr. O'Neill, Ms. Barch, Mrs. Bennett, and Ms. [=DeFoe=]. The faculty members who hate Daria (Mrs. Manson, Ms. Morris, and Ms. Li) are the ones who're all openly corrupt.


Added DiffLines:

* HeelRealization: Receives an easy to miss one in "The Lost Girls." Quinn is visibly saddened by Daria's deconstruction of the concept of "Edgy," because it makes Quinn realize everything she enjoys and everything that makes popular makes her part of the same faceless teen crowd being manipulated and exploited by corporate America. Considering Quinn had expressed how she felt being attractive and popular were the only things she were good at, it hurts even more because she knows just how little those really mean in the grander scheme of things. One might argue this was one of the prods Quinn needed to start reexamining her life and begin expressing her intellect a bit more.


Added DiffLines:

* MamaBear: Surprisingly, she has ''some'' shades of this buried deeply under her psychotic misandry. In "The F Word," while attending a teacher's conference, Mr. O'Neill is recounting a speaker's lecture on "Planting the seeds of tomorrow into the students of today." Barch misconstrues this as something sexual regarding the students, and gets pissed off about the speaker in defense of her students.
-->'''Ms. Barch''': If he ever tried that around any of ''my'' kids they'd be the LAST DAMN SEEDS HE'D EVER PLANTED!


Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: She's by far one of the most unlikable characters on the show, having zero positive qualities and about as corrupt as one could get, with her only entertainment value coming from Daria making her look like a jackass.
* ItsAllAboutMe: She frequently forces the students to participate in charitable programs via threats of detention and suspension she can personally reap the benefits the good press would provide. She mainly uses a cover of acting like her concern is for the image of Lawndale High, but you can see how that effects her since she ''runs'' Lawndale High.


Added DiffLines:

* VerbalTic: She's almost incapable of saying "Lawndale High" without a tone of awe.

* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Penny has bright red hair and green eyes (or rather green dots for eyes).

* [[BigLittleBrother Big Little Sister]]: A mild example; Quinn is actually slightly taller than Daria.
* BlatantLies: Quinn acting upset when her male suitors physically assault each other in their competition for her, generally with a smile on her face. Any of her attempts at distancing herself from Daria (usually calling Daria her cousin or the weird neighbor girl who hangs out with her), the most extreme being that Daria is "Our cabana girl's adopted cousin."
** Although that last one occurred in a dream Daria was having in ''Murder She Snored''.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Receives one from her tutor in ''Is It Fall Yet?'' He's blunt about the fact that Quinn is only actually popular because of her looks, she has absolutely nothing to offer beyond being shallow and pedantic, and she shouldn't waste her time going to college if she doesn't actually want to learn. All this represents the fears Quinn actually has about her self and her sense of self worth.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Later episodes indicate that she's more intelligent than she lets on.

* {{Goth}}

* {{Goth}}{{Goth}}: Though she gets about three lines per season on average, she is unmistakably Lawndale High's token goth kid.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: A mild case. Trent only has the "bad boy" looks, not the personality. Daria had quite a crush on him because of this. That is until she had to face that facts that while he's nice, he really is just a lazy slacker with no signs of accomplishing anything in life.



* HandsOffParenting: Her family was initially the TropeNamer (CasaLaneParenting).

* MoralityPet: In a weird subversion, Daria seems to be this to some of the teachers at Lawndale High due to her intellect and sanity being a breath of fresh air in the quagmire of stupidity the school seems to be seeped in (with exceptions, of course).

** Played straight with Mr. [=DeMartino=], in a way, because she makes him "Want to kill himself a little less" then the rest of her classmates. He's also shown complimenting her work in class and congratulates her on winning an award during graduation.



Tropes associated with Helen:
* AdultsAreUseless: Averted with Helen. A lot of episodes show that Helen can be useful in a crisis involving her children (when she's not talking to her boss Eric on the phone).
** Beyond "Arts 'n Crass" a decent example of this comes from "Lucky Strike" when, the moment Quinn mentions her substitute teacher was being inappropriate with Tiffany (not that Quinn noticed) Helen snaps into attention, calls the school, and has the guy fired.

* [[WellDoneSonGuy Well Done Daughter Girl]]: Helen apparently started working hard at school so that she would get attention from her mother, which has blossomed into full-blown workaholism by adulthood.

Tropes associated with Ms. Barch:



* CharacterizationMarchesOn[=/=]DefrostingIceQueen: Subverted. Ms. Barch stayed an embittered, man-hating divorcee throughout the series, but starting with "The Daria Hunter," she turned off her misandry around Mr. O'Neill. She seemed to have toned down after the two got together, if only because their relationship became her new shtick. Afterwards her sexism seems to become a lot less vicious unless she was specifically upset about something.
