In late 2012, the line expanded with Bratzillaz, who are not only the cousins of the main cast, but also witches. The line takes obvious cues from Harry Potter, but has mostly been compared to Mattel's Monster High, and with good reason- MGA seems to be doing their best to openly compete with Mattel's juggernaut, with a similar catchphrase("Glam Gets Wicked", as opposed to "Freaky Just Got Fabulous") and even a Youtube channel that has short "webisodes" and even a live-action music video which has been compared to the Monster High "Fright Song" video.

video. As of 2015, it seems Braztillaz is a retail failure, as even the original 5 dolls can be purchased for well below original retail cost, the webisodes only received very sporadic updates and new doll releases have been sparse at best since 2013.

* And of course, the infamous live action movie ''[[Film/{{Bratz}}]], which some people claim to be the most sexist, racist, classist movie ever made. [[note]]And yes, this means that the Bratz line somehow released more [=DVDs=] than Barbie even though her Direct-To-DVD ventures started earlier.[[/note]]

The line eventually became popular enough to warrant a bunch of spin-off lines, several animated [[DirectToVideo Direct-To-DVD]] movies, a short-lived cartoon series, and [[Film/{{Bratz}} a live-action movie]]. The cartoon and most of the animated movies take place in the fictional town of Stilesville and focus on the 4 main girls in the line (Cloe, Sasha, Yasmin, and Jade) and their trials and tribulations of running their own fashion 'zine (appropriately titled ''Bratz''), playing in their own band, getting through the school year at Stiles High, and thwarting the schemes of their rival magazine, ''Your Thing'', run by the middle-aged self-proclaimed "Queen of Fashion", Burdine Maxwell, and her two interns Kirstee and Kaycee (AKA "The Tweevils"). The live-action movie chronicles the girls' adventures in Carry Nation High as they try to destroy the oppressive clique system that the principal's daughter, Meredith, uses to control the students... and win the annual school talent show.

* YouCanPanicNow: Every few years or so, someone starts a panic saying that the toyline is teaching girls to dress like hookers or that beauty is everything in life. Whether kids really ''are'' that easily influenced is debatable, but the franchise doesn't exactly present its supposed Aesops (individuality and self-confidence) in the best light.

** Someone also did [[CunningLikeAFox Foxz]], who were even creepier than the Strutz and Bratz put together. Even the FurryFandom thought they looked like cheap hos.

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Cloe fits many of the criteria - young, beautiful and generally sweet if dramatic.

* MoneyDearBoy: Jon Voight, why?



* TheOtherDarrin: Cinegroupe produced the first direct-to-video movie, ''Starrin` and Stylin`'', and featured a different cast from the TV series (which was produced by Fox and Lionsgate). However, ''Starrin` and Stylin`'' didn't list the voice credits.
** For the TV show's second season, Fox stopped producing the series, so Lionsgate took over, replacing the entire cast.



* ScrewedByTheLawyers: The courts found the toy line was being worked on by Mattel before the creator left the company, so Mattel won a suit to discontinue the line.
** According to [[FanDumb some fans]], this is evidence that Barbie is [[YoureJustJealous jealous]] of the Bratz.
*** Speaking to the FanDumb accusation--Judge Alex Kozinski, who granted [=MGA=] the appeal, seemed to agree that there was some "jealousy" involved in the case, saying, "America thrives on competition; Barbie, the all‐American girl, will too."[[http://www.entertainmentlitigationblog.com/2010/07/entertainment_litigation_the_b_1.html]][[http://www.entertainmentlitigationblog.com/2010-07-22%20Mattel%20v%20MGA%20Entertainment%20(9th%20Cir%20-%20Kozinski%20op).pdf]]
