* AscendedExtra: They were created for ''Witch's Ghost'', mostly as suspects and a [[ChekhovsGunman convenient way]] to get rid of the antagonist. Their popularity has since ensured that they've frequently shown up at least once in almost every subsequent series at some point.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Can perhaps be interpreted as this in some incarnations, such as ''Camp Scare'', where she's depicted with [[DarkSkinnedRedhead noticeably tanner skin]] than the other members of Mystery Inc.

* Flanderization: Zig-Zagged. Through his initial run in the franchise he gradually began to show other interests besides 'splatting' monsters and solving mysteries, and using his iconic catchphrases less and less to the point where "Puppy Power!" was not uttered once throughout Reluctant Werewolf. Fast forward to the 2000s, where if he is appeared or referrenced, he is portrayed as obsessed with 'splatting' the monster just for the sake of splatting the monster, his confidance is dialed to egotism, and his moments of competence and PintSizedPowerHouse tendencies are completely forgotten in favor of the "small=weak" stereotype. Then it was subverted with his portrayal in the Scooby-Apocalypse-Comic, which is pretty much InNameOnly.

** Averted a few times when his Scrappy traps seem completely capable to catching "something" (although Shag and Scooby get caught more often then the monsters) and in The Nutcracker Scoob, Scrappy has zero problem defeating a cat that's bigger than him and throwing it right out the building. He also dispatches of a larger human Farquard in ''Boo Brothers''.

* AdaptationalBadass: Most of the recent continuities will give this to one or more of the gang members in some form or another.
* {{Flanderization}}: And each passing continuity will flanderize at least one character. For example, Fred was Flanderized into a DumbBlonde Jock who's obsessed with traps (Starting with ''A Pup Named Scooby Doo'' and peaking in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'') Daphne was flanderized into a SpoiledSweet rich girl who actually proved more competent than Fred before turning into a CloudCuckooLander in ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo'', Velma was flanderized into a HollywoodNerd, and Shaggy and Scooby had there cowardice turned UpToEleven.
* KidHero: They're teenagers in most adaptations.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Some adaptations, such as ''Mystery Incorporated'', will have them at odds with the law.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: In the original ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou'' series, Velma as 15, Daphne was 16 and Fred and Shaggy were both 17 (hence the term "Meddling ''Kids''", yet they looked and sounded like they were at least in their mid-twenties. Perhaps in response to this, they are sometimes given an AgeLift in later continuities (such as the DTV movies between ''Zombie Island'' and ''Cyber Chase'' where they're in their twenties and ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' where they seem to be college aged.)
