* ShoutOut: Hay Lin has a little Franchise/SailorMoon on her monitor, along with a monster that kinda looks like Godzilla. Irma has plenty of Disney paraphernalia, including a [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Little Mermaid]]. In the Dark Mother Saga, [[spoiler: [[CaptainPlanet they combine their powers]] to create a powerful being to defeat her]]

Added DiffLines:

* LimitedWardrobe: [[SubvertedTrope Completely absent in spite of this being a Disney series]]: most characters have signature ''styles'' (such as Cornelia's preference for long skirts, Will's love for practical outfits, and so on), and the few exceptions are {{Justified}} and tend to be aliens. And even then, the only ones who are ''never'' seen in a different outfit are Kandrakar's Elders, who wear white robes every time they're seen as Elders-meaning that Yan Lin (who wasn't initially an elder), Himerish (who [[spoiler:was temporarily deposed as Oracle and later gives up the title]]) and Luba (who loses her position as a punishment) ''are'' seen in different outfits.

* TransformationTrinket: The Heart Of Kandrakar, although when they got a power-upgrade in the seventh saga, it appears they can now transform without it.
** Also, unlike other trinkets, there's no risk of losing it, as it's normally dormant inside Will's body, and only appears when needed.
** The Heart Of Kandrakar is not needed for transformation, the Guardians have transformed before the power-upgrade without using it. Cornelia transformed at least while Will was elsewhere.
** Irma also transformed once without it to draw some boy's attention (she hid her wings). More than a TransformationTrinket, it just make them more powerful in their Guardian forms. Also, they no longer use it to transform.
* TrulySingleParent: Caleb is a Murmurer. The closest thing he has to a father is ''Phobos''.
** Though technically, his human form was literally created by Elyon, so you could say she is his mother.

Will can use it to induce a transformation in herself or the seventh saga, other guardians but it appears they can now transform is not, strictly speaking, necessary. Irma transformed once without it.

* WingsDoNothing: At first, the guardians wings are pretty much useless and Hay Lin is the only one who can actually fly. [[LampshadeHanging At one point in the third saga, Orube asks why they even have them if they can't actually use them.]] However, in the seventh saga, the girls get a power upgrade which include bigger wings that allow them to fly (but Cornelia is afraid to). {{Justified}} in the New Power story arc, where it's revealed that [[spoiler: the powers of the Guardians were ''incomplete'', and when they get their full power at the start of the arc their wings actually start working]].

* UnPerson: Happens to Cornelia in one comic after Endarno releases some sort of magical butterfly, only the other W.I.T.C.H. girls were able to remember her. The butterfly eventually transforms into a crystal-like clone of Cornelia and shows her visions of her past, and then Cornelia destroys it.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Hetherfield appears to be in the US given that the American flag appears several times and US dollars sometimes appear...but other times euros are used instead, which indicates a European location.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Hetherfield appears Unintentional example: Heatherfield is supposed to be in the US US, given that the use of the American flag appears several times and US dollars and the setting being how many Italians would see America, but the way characters act and the setting not being ''that'' American made it rather unclear, with some translations sometimes appear...but other times changing the currency to euros are used instead, which indicates a to indicate an European location.

** To be fair, Will has never done anything in a kitchen before, and her mother expected her to be the primary cook after William was born, without classes or teaching her herself, just cookbooks to help her. No matter how smart one is, that situation can be very stressful.

* LethalChef: Will is on the same level of [[RanmaOneHalf Akane Tendo]], having once put powdered soap in place of the flour. Orube can't cook due lack of familiarity with Earth ingredients and cooking implements (the first time she cooked she set the kitchen on fire, but only that once) and clumsiness outside the way of the warrior, but while she's slowly getting better she still has a long way to go (she once set on fire the ''[[EpicFail water for the pasta]]''!).

* DeusExMachina: This is sadly the standard way the Guardians win in each arc- they never actually win by their own merits. Meridian Arc? Elyon beats Phobos while the girls are tossed aside. Nerissa Arc? ''Shagon'' is directly responsible for Nerissa's defeat, damaging her almost fatally. Ari's arc doesn't suffer from this... but the human world situation, which was really bad, is solved by the Oracle(who is just an observer). Endarno Saga? Himerish beats down Phobos off-screen. Then, Phobos' backup plan is foiled by... Napoleon(who in the comic is a mere housecat). The most ridiculous DeusExMachina sequences were the superpower manifestation in the Dark Mother Saga- after the girls get beaten down they somehow let loose a new power they didn't know anything about and it overpowers Dark Mother with ease, and the defeat of the white queen, where the girls literally pull a completely unknown tactic out of their hats- and we never see it in use again. If there was one thing the cartoon improved, this was it.
