* TheCasanova

to:

* TheCasanovaTheCasanova: He's portrayed as a womanizer since day one, and when he opens a pool business he finds himself sleeping with various single moms she works for.



* ChickMagnet

to:

* ChickMagnetChickMagnet: There's Quinn (mother of his baby), Rachel (with who he hooked up twice, the second time while she's with Finn), Santana (dated and had sex multiple times before she comes out), Brittany (both admitted having sex with each other before the series begin), Mercedes (they date during an episode of season 1, and there's also quite a bit of ShipTease later on), Lauren (his girlfriend in season 2), Kitty (who he dates during most of season 4) and Shelby (his baby's adoptive mom, with who he has sex with on season 3).



* RousingSpeech[=/=]TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Puck somehow manages to combine these in "Sue Sylvester Shuffle".

* [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny Ears Dancer]]: She may be dumber than a jar of mayonnaise, but Brittany is one of the two best dancers in the group (the other being Mike), performing complex moves you wouldn't expect from a girl who sometimes forgets her middle name. The real reason is because Heather Morris is a professional dancer in real life who has toured with {{Beyonce}}. She was brought on the show to teach the "Single Ladies" choreography, but was kept on since a third cheerleader was wanted.

* TheBusCameBack: Returns for the 100th episode and seems to be heading to New York after accepting an offer from Santana to go there when they finish on their vacation, reconciling in the process. She made an appearance in the Season 5 finale; her and Santana returned for seven episodes in the final season, then appeared for the final number of the series in the GrandFinale.



* TheCutie

to:

* TheCutieTheCutie: Her childish naivety and sweetness is an ungodly cute combination.



* GoodBadGirl

to:

* GoodBadGirlGoodBadGirl: She ReallyGetsAround just as much Santana, but unlike Santana she's mostly a sweet and kind girl.



* [[NoNameGiven No Last Name Given]]: In the first season, her lack of a last name was a RunningGag, to the point that she is only referred by her first name in the yearbook. However, it was finally revealed in episode 2.02, and it's Pierce, which she [[EmbarrassingMiddleName is embarrassed by]]. Her middle name is Susan. Which makes her Brittany S. Pierce. She thus goes from the only member not have their last name to the first to have her middle name mentioned.
* NoYay: With Sam.



* OddFriendship[=/=]PitbullDatesPuppy: Santana, a self-identified "bitch" with a perpetually sour outlook, would on the surface seem to be the least likely companion for the generally sweet, goofy Brittany, but the two are virtually inseparable.

* [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Bi]]: Debate raged on about Sam's sexual orientation, in-universe and out. In "Rumours," when he appears to be close to both Kurt and Quinn, the Glee kids are far more shocked by Kurt and Quinn's possible infidelity than the idea of Sam swinging both ways. It turns out to not be what they thought; Quinn and Kurt were just being good friends to Sam rather than having an affair with him. Taken UpToEleven in Season 4, as despite a hideous relationship with Brittany, he also became best friends with Blaine and gleeks thought they had the better chemistry, to the point of [[PortmanteauCoupleName Blam]] becoming a FanPreferredCouple over Klaine and most definetly over [[NoYay Bram]].

* [[MistakenForGay Mistaken For Bi]]: He dated five girls - Quinn, Santana, Mercedes, Brittany & Rachel - but fans still held out for BiTheWay. In "Rumours," he was rumored to be meeting with ''both'' Kurt and Quinn at a motel. Fans also ship Blam (he and Blaine) and hold steady that he may have had something with him had he not been dating Brittany at the time.

* TooDumbToLive: Those who don't see his "Isn't it great our girlfriends are such good friends?" comment as HoYay saw it as this.



* PunnyName[=/=]IronicName: Zizes sounds quite a bit like "size S", at least the way Mr. Schuester pronounces it in "Special Education".

** YMMV - some people would definitely consider Quinn a hypocrite for bullying girls like Rachel at the start of the series when she used to be picked on herself.



* [[UnaccustomedAsIAmToPublicSpeaking Unaccustomed As I Am To Singing And Dancing]]: For someone who thinks show choir is stupid, she was surprisingly good at keeping up with the choreography and harmonies despite learning everything at the last minute in "Special Education".

* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Him Other Asian]]. In the first season, fans generally referred to him as "Other Asian" after Sue (and later Tina) referred to him by that name. After his ShirtlessScene (or shirt-open scene) in "Audition," [[JerseyShore The SituAsian]] became an alternative suggestion. However, as his screentime increased, both nicknames were dropped.

* IdiotSavant: Despite having a 0.0 GPA throughout the first three seasons (and only raising it by 0.2 by the end of the fourth), she manages to get a perfect score on her SATs. This grabs the attention of MIT, who decide to give her another test since they are rightfully suspicious. She fails horribly, but does write down a series of numbers that end up being incredibly important and allow her a full scholarship to the school.

*** It should be noted though that she isn't a jerkass by the end of the episode where she does apologize to Quinn for what she did.

** This gets deconstructed in season 4, particularly after his and Kurt's breakup. He pretty much says in Dynamic Duets he feels like he's floating and doesn't know who he is since the breakup - doesn't really know who he is without Kurt. (This would seem to indicate someone who had emotional issues underlying the current situation, but only time will tell if the writers will actually go there.)

** Despite rounding up his character and giving him much, [[SpotlightStealingSquad much screen-time]], Blaine never broke out from his 'patron saint of gayness, sent here specifically for Kurt' role. Even in the flashback episode near the end, when we see him in 2009 (despite the fact he had nothing to do in the story then), what this all-around talented guy with supposedly vast interests talk about in his everyday before-Kurt life? Yes, he's mentoring some lad in a TransparentCloset about being gay and coming out.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: His AscendedExtra status from a Warbler to the male lead doesn't help, especially when you consider that he gets ''far'' more screentime than even the original characters. Taken UpToEleven when you consider that the episode after Karofsky's attempted suicide doesn't even mention that and instead focuses on Blaine's relationship with his brother. Who has never been seen, or even ''mentioned'' before this episode. [[TheGhost Or after, for that matter.]]
