* {{Snapback}}: At the end of ''Hey Arnold: The Movie'', the streets are filled with debris, there's damage from an underground explosion, and the overpass behind the boarding house was blown up. The two episodes that take place after the movie (''April Fool's Day'' & ''The Journal'') have no sign of any damage anywhere in the neighborhood, nor did the Sunset Arms residents receive any noticeable punishment for dynamiting the building Scheck's video wall and countdown was on.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: Helga. She received more [[ADayInTheLimelight day in the limelight]] episodes than any other supporting character (even Gerald, who's supposed to be Arnold's best friend), and was the most developed character on the show. By seasons 4 and 5, she more or less became the series' true protagonist. It even extends to this very wiki. Her list of tropes on the Characters page [[TropesOverdosed was so long]] (it took up at least a quarter of the page and was twice the length of Arnold's) it was split off into a page of its own (Arnold eventually got one as well). TropesAreNotBad, since she's arguably the series' most popular character.

** Pretty much everyone in the boarding house gives Oskar one in "Oskar Gets a Job". Including NiceGuy Arnold.

** Every time Arnold hits a baseball, someone is going to get hit by it. (See: "24 Hours to Live" and "Beaned") There is even an entire episode dealing with the idea. ("Dangerous Lumber")

** Let's not forget Curly in "Curly Snaps" who was obsessed over being "ball monitor" (the kid whose job is to hand out and collect all the kickballs before and after recces) for a week. While every other kid thought it was a mediocre or boring chore, Curly thought it was an admirable and highly respected position. He ends up going crazy and locking himself in the principal's office in protest just because Mr. Simmons accidentally skipped his turn.

* SlidingScaleOfContinuity: Level 3. While most episodes are stand-alone, there are callbacks and nods to previous episodes every so often. Plus, there are some episodes that are pretty much mandatory watch, since they introduce a new characters that become regulars. ("New Teacher", "Ms. Perfect")

** Played entirely straight with Stoop Kid, a kid who's living by himself with no adults, looks to be well into his teens and apparently hasn't been to school before in his life (After all, Stoop Kid never leaves his stoop) and almost everyone in the neighbourhood ''knows'' who he is and he regularly yells at people going past his house. Hasn't anybody thought of calling social services on him?

** "Dangerous Lumber", where after several attempts at trying to cure his "dangerous lumber" (which is basically him hitting and hurting someone else with a baseball every time he hits it) by going to a batting cage at Ernie's insistence that "Nothing can go wrong, and no one can get hurt". When Arnold hits the ball, he shoots it straight back into the barrel of the pitching machine, causing it to malfunction and pelt everyone else in the batting cage with a barrage of baseballs before it eventually explodes. He promptly quits playing baseball right after that.

** The entire plot of "Phoebe's Little Problem" revolves around Phoebe being the [[IncrediblyLamePun Butt]] [[ButtMonkey Monkey]] of the school after accidentally breaking wind into a microphone on stage.

** Gerald's voice changing becomes a plot point; in reality, Jamil W. Smith's voice had broken in season 3, so an episode in which Gerald has his tonsils removed, thus bringing on a change in his voice, was written. ''The Jungle Movie'' seems to have retconned this change, since Gerald'd new voice actor sounds like the pre-pubescent Jamil Smith's voice from the old series.

* WritersCannotDoMath: Of course many of these examples may be due to Phil's poor memory, exaggerations, or math skills.

* YouHaveToHaveJews: The Jewish faith and Jewish culture are very well represented among the cast. Harold and his parents are Jewish, as is Mr. Green the butcher (and later city councilman). Many other characters aren't explicitly Jewish but are implied to be (or at least have a strong affinity for the culture) at different times: Eugene's last name is Horowitz, Sheena can read Hebrew, Helga frequently uses Yiddish insults, and even Gerald recites a Hebrew prayer in TheMovie.
