* {{Adorkable}}: She's building her career on this trope. Her ''New Girl'' character is even called this in promotional material. Creator/AbbyElliott's ''SNL'' parody of her overuses the the term, too.
* AffectionateParody / TakeThatMe: Her guest starring role in the WesternAnimation/AmericanDad episode "Independent Movie" had her basically playing a parody of the types of characters she's prone to play. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] outright in the episode itself where Steve actually calls Zooey's character a "ManicPixieDreamGirl."
