* ApprovalOfGod: She's been very supportive of ''Animorphs'' fandom. Except the artwork of Tobias doing it with Harry Potter.
* CreatorCouple: With Creator/MichaelGrant in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'', ''Literature/{{Remnants}}'', ''Making Out'', and ''Literature/EveAndAdam''.
* DearNegativeReader: She [[http://web.archive.org/web/20010807200502/www.morphz.com/posts/1061001.htm wrote a letter]] to the Animorphs fans who didn't like the ending. Even if you think the ending was bad, you have to admit that the letter was pretty fucking awesome.



* GenreAdultery: She commits it all over the place. A little-known fact is that Animorphs wasn't her debut - she wrote YA realistic romance novels before that, making Animorphs, a sci-fi series, different in every way possible. Then, after Remnants, she started working on more literary works; none of them are at all similar to her late '90's, early '00's series. Then she committed adultery on ''that'' genre when she co-wrote ''Eve and Adam'' with her husband. And that's not even mentioning her chapter books for beginner readers. Basically, she's a really, really versatile writer who has no one single genre.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: This is what she wants Animorphs fans to do.



* OldShame: Back in TheNineties, she wrote ''Barf-O-Rama'', which is exactly what it sounds like based on the name: disgusting books built around barf scenes. For obvious reasons, it was done under a pseudonym.
** Really, anything she did before Animorphs. And even then, she didn't like the endings of ''Everworld'' and ''Remnants'' any more than her fans did.
* [[HeAlsoDid She Also Didů]]: Applegate was a ghostwriter for Sweet Valley Twins, a SpinOff of SweetValleyHigh, before she started writing her own books.

* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Averted - in 2011, when the ''Animorphs'' books were still out of print, [[http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/gzhau/iam_ka_applegate_author_of_animorphs_and_many/c1rfte1 she stated she had no objection to people continuing to circulate them as free ebooks]]. She would've preferred to have them officially available for sale in ebook form, but it wasn't something Scholastic was actively doing at the time. Now that the series is being reprinted, this may not be the case anymore though.
