* OffscreenTeleportation: Being offscreen most of the time, it's pretty easy for Brainy to do suddenly appear out of nowhere. Lampshaded in several episodes where he shows up behind Helga in the most ''improbable'' places, such as on Elk Island, the [[spoiler:Supposedly]] haunted train, ''inside a tree'', and in an Alley that Helga ''made sure'' was empty which got {{Lampshaded}}:

* TheMovie:
** ''Hey Arnold: The Movie'' was a MadeForTVMovie taken to theaters.
** The long awaited ''Jungle Movie'' has resumed production as will be a MadeForTVMovie



* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailers for TheMovie would make you think it was primarily about a block party concert to save the neighborhood. The block party in question is only merely a very brief scene near the beginning of the film that is actually an abysmal failure for the main characters.



** One of the things that went wrong with TheMovie, all the main cast besides Arnold, Gerald, and Helga were given reduced spotlight.
** In later seasons anybody of Mr. Simmons's fourth grade class who wasn't Arnold, Gerald, Helga, Harold, Phoebe, Eugene, Rhonda, Lila, Sid or Stinky would've became subjected to less focus and reduced to being background characters.

* KnowYourVines: The early camping episode ended with Big Bob Pataki rushing through a small bush to get back to his campsite after a disastrous hike, cutting off Arnold telling them to go around it. This bush was poison ivy, causing him more misery.

** Rhonda sometimes gets this in episodes that focus on her. The episode "Rhonda Goes Broke" comes to mind.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: In universe - Arnold of all people is chosen to play the "black-hearted villain" for the titular school play in "Eugene, Eugene". But so nice is Arnold that he can't go through with the director's ultra-cynical rewrite of the ending in which his character wins and the hero dies totally crushed because it's just too cruel, so he helps scheme to change the ending back into its original HappyEnding.

** Helga, meanwhile, seems totally oblivious to Brainy's crush on her - even after he tries to give her a ring.

** In ''Eugene, Eugene'', the protagonist's romantic rival was a {{Jerkass}} indeed, but let's not forget, the NiceGuy protagonist is trying to '''homewreck''' and '''harass''' the girl with his "persistence".

* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: Arnold and Helga's dynamic after the confession. They agreed it was "heat of the moment", but it's not hard to tell Arnold didn't buy that. The tango scene in "April Fool's Day", one of the two episodes set post-movie, has Arnold abandon his passive behavior for a more forward, flirtatious one. (Craig Bartlett confirmed in an interview that Arnold was indeed flirting with Helga.)

** Eugene was facing a possible expulsion for pulling a fire alarm, but when it was revealed that Curly framed him, Curly never faced such a punishment, even after pulling the alarm ''again'' right in front of Principal Wartz. Or if anything, he was never sent to seek the psychiatric help that he so obviously needed.

** Arnold, big time. This is actually subverted in a couple of later episodes where it is implied that his ''subconscious'' knows that Helga is in love with him and is trying to get him to figure it out. Justified because he might be a little reluctant and uncomfortable being involved with someone who has given so much grief over the years...and does it ''right'' after being nice to him. He at least, however, generally shows that he knows she is a much nicer person that she lets on.
