* LovableJock: It isn't apparent at first, but Shaggy is actually a school athlete. His considerable speed - that he puts to use in running away from the monster - is the product of his time on the school track team.

Natch. The Space Kook is an "alien" and it's just as troublesome as the other monsters they chase.
* AmbitionIsEvil: In the Scoobyverse, changing one's life means taking some frightening extremes. To be fair, some of this is because the villains take the villainous route even when they ''could'' do things honestly; for example, at the end of "Mine Your Own Business", the guy the villain was trying to scare off noted that it was too bad he resorted to bad tactics, as he would have been happy to be partners in the mining business.

* GadgeteerGenius: In ''What's New, Scooby Doo?'', Fred at least comes close with his improbably sophisticated modifications to the Mystery Machine.

* TookALevelInDumbass: He was originally the second smartest in the gang but has Taken a Level in Dumbass ever since Daphne started becoming more competent. Essentially Daphne took a good portion of his leadership skills and intelligence. Some incarnations flanderize this even more.

** Varies, but she gets hit with this semi-often. While never truly ugly, Velma was traditionally overweight looking, with a short-and-stout appearance, tacky haircut and a relatively plain face. Starting with ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland Zombie Island]]'', this started to change somewhat, ''especially'' in ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' and the movies (much like Shaggy), where she's made very petite with a tiny waist and an [[http://i.imgur.com/zqU4ktl.jpg hourglass figure, with a cute-as-a-button face to boot]]. And in the live action films, she's played by very attractive actresses. The most recent animated movies fuse these two somewhat, and ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Inc.]]'' also splits the difference Velma sports a cuter, more stylized version of her original appearance, complete with little bows in her hair.
** She didn't gain extra weight and freckles until a bit later after the debut so her new attractiveness is [[http://s897.photobucket.com/user/LadySomething/media/hula.jpg.html a bit closer to how she originally looked]].

* InkSuitActor: Velma is pretty much the spitting image of her first voice actress, Nicole Jaffe.



* OnlySaneWoman

to:

* OnlySaneWomanOnlySaneWoman: Compared to her friends at least. Then again, it's not hard to seem this way when paired with a talking dog, a cowardly hippie, an accident prone Valley Girl and an ascot wearing blond jock who drives a green hippie van with orange flowers on it.

* VocalEvolution: Messick's original voice for Scooby was much deeper and huskier sounding before it transitioned to the style everyone's familiar with today. This is notable in several first season episodes of the original series; for example in "A Clue for Scooby-Doo", Scooby's voice repeatedly switches from the way it usually sounds to the huskier voice throughout the episode, particularly in its second half.

** Frank Welker's Scooby has all but lost the speech impediment in recent years, which is pretty evident in ''Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!''.

** When Matthew Lillard portrayed Shaggy in the live-action films, his voice sounded almost identical to Casey Kasem's, save for being slightly higher-pitched. Ever since he permanently took over voicing the character in 2010, the voice became goofier-sounding to the point that he sounded almost nothing like Kasem.

* VocalEvolution: Over the decades, Frank Welker has given Fred more and more of a Minnesotan accent as a result of the character's personality becoming increasingly goofier... and when the movies started downplaying his silliness, Welker reigned it back in. He appears to have toned the voice back down in ''Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!''.
