* JabbaTableManners: Helga is occasionally shown to be a messy eater, as seen in "Helga's Masquerade" and "Big Bob's Crisis", where she has chocolate syrup (in the former) and barbecue sauce (in the latter) all over her face.

* PoisonousFriend: Helga, at times. Though she often means well in situations where she is made to help others, her idea of the right way to do something is a little... skewed. In episodes where she gives advice or puts down a plan of action, chances are that plan will be harsh, immoral, and ultimately not helpful. She lampshades it in "Deconstructing Arnold" while explaining to Arnold why he is the right person to give advice and she... isn't.

** Sid is this as well. He turns on his "friends" at the drop of a hat and will usually do something to mess everything up.



* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Helga and Big Bob are both implied to be homophobic considering all the pejorative names they call [[WordOfGay Mr. Simmons]]. (i.e. "throw pillow", "cream puff", "tea cozy".)



* PrecociousCrush: In season 1, Arnold had a crush on Ruth MacDougal, a sixth grader. In "Crush on Teacher", [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin he develops a crush on his substitute teacher.]]

to:

** Arnold himself had very few episodes dedicated to him in seasons 4 and 5, and when he did appear it was usually to act as TheConscience.



* ProgressivelyPrettier: Helga for most of season 1 has an ape like face, a thicker unibrow, a big nose, and a big overbite, from season 2 onwards (after ArtEvolution kicks in) her features are made softer and she gets cuter as a result.

* PlayingGamesAtWork: In the episode "Suspended", after Arnold and Harold get suspended from school, they go to the public library do some research on an appeal to the school's constitution. However, only Arnold does any actual research on his computer, as Harold is seen playing a ''VideoGame/{{Rampage}}''-like game on his computer, until an unamused Arnold sees it and shuts the computer off.

* JerkassBall: Arnold has a few of these, such as in "New Teacher" (where he assists the students in bullying Mr. Simmons into quitting his teaching job) and especially in "Egg Story" (where he rips Helga a new asshole even though she was trying to be nice to him for a change, telling her that he doesn't like her and would rather work with anyone else but her, this one in particular seemed like an OutOfCharacterMoment)

* LoveTriangle: More like Love Square. Arnold likes Lila, who likes his cousin Arnie, who likes Helga, who likes Arnold. In "Arnold Visits Arnie", the love chain is reversed; Arnold likes Helga (Hilda) who likes Arnie, who likes Lulu (Lila) who likes Arnold. This show just screams AllLoveIsUnrequited.
