** Helga's mom is clearly alcoholic, her dad is about as abusive as you can get without being violent, and they're both often pretty neglectful of her. YMMV though - It's shown that they ''can'' take care of her, and Miriam was intended to go to Alcoholics Anonymous in The Patakis.

* RaisedByGrandparents: Arnold.

* RaisedByGrandparents: Arnold.Arnold is a pretty positive example. He does miss his parents to an extent but he's perfectly happy living with the old folks and their weirdo tenants.

** The fifth grade girls Arnold and Gerald took to the prom return in "Phoebe Skips", with a much meaner and controlling attitude towards Phoebe. This may be a special case if they only act sweet to boys but are horrible to other girls.

* 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 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.

* SoBadItsGood: In-universe. Helga & Big Bob's reaction to ''[[{{Cats}} Rats]]: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Musical of Singing Rats]]''. TakeThat, indeed.

Added DiffLines:

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech:
** Helga delivers one to her mom in the episode "Road Trip".
--> '''Helga''': Well, you've done a great job so far, Miriam. You lost the map, you ran us off the road, you left your purse on top of the car again and we're stuck in the middle of nowhere. I'm nine years old, mom. You're the parent. You're supposed to take care of me, but you couldn't even do that. Face it, Miriam. You're a lousy mom.
** She also delivers an even more scathing one to Harold in "Buses, Bikes, and Subways".
---> '''Helga''': Everything that happened today is your fault! You can't do ANYTHING right. Take the bus for example. Why do you think we missed it, Harold? Oh, let's see. Hmmm...maybe was it because you were too busy eating twice your body weight in chocolate num nums! Oh, how about this one? "Let's take the subway! I think it goes to Lincoln." Oh, wait! No, it doesn't! It goes straight to the bowels of the underworld. Population? Homicidal, toothless midget clowns! I know, "Let's steal their bike. They won't mind!" Now you'd think that would be enough to fill any moron's day, but you're not just any moron, are you, Harold? You're the KING, your day's just getting started. So, because of your AMAZING curiosity about the world around us, YOU PULLED THE PLUG OUT OF THE BOTTOM OF OUR GETAWAY BOAT! (sighs) You idiot...
** Helga herself got one in "Helga and the Nanny". When Inga the titular nanny was framed for theft, and got fired for it, Helga ended up [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone feeling guilty about it]] and [[WhatTheHellHero was called out by her friends]]. When Helga goes to confess to Inga, the nanny reveals she already knew, and tells Helga that she [[JerkassWoobie is a sad and troubled child]] [[{{Tsundere}} who takes it out by being a]] {{Jerkass}} to others, and pushes away anyone who tries to help her. Cue the DownerEnding...
** Susie gives one towards Oskar in "Baby Oskar" and Oskar just kind of sits there and agrees with her.
---> '''Susie''': You're a grown man. When are you going to grow up and act responsible?\\
'''Oskar''': I'll do it tomorrow.\\
'''Susie''': Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow! That's all I ever hear from you!\\
'''Oskar''': What's wrong with tomorrow? It's a good day.\\
'''Susie''': Tomorrow's a good day for you! Tomorrow's a grand day, because tomorrow's the day you'll get a good job! Tomorrow's the day you'll pay the bills! Tomorrow's the day you'll grow up and start acting responsible. But tomorrow never comes for you, because it's always so conveniently a day away. \\
'''Oskar''': That's right, it's only a day away [[ComicStrip/LittleOrphanAnnie just like that song the little orphan girl sings!]]\\
'''Susie''': What about today Oskar, and what about yesterday? When I needed your help you just loafed around the house! When I had to take care of the cleaning, the bills, and the baby all you could do was whine and moan, and ask me to make you a sandwich!\\
'''Oskar''': That's right and you never did!\\
'''Susie''': Because I was busy! You expect everyone else to take care of you!\\
'''Oskar''': [[ItsAllAboutMe Susie I don't expect everyone else to take care of me.]] [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Just you!]]
** Pretty much everyone in the boarding house gives Oskar one in "Oskar Gets a Job". Including NiceGuy Arnold.
---> '''Arnold''': That's it. I'm tired of all your excuses.\\
'''Oskar''': Arnold, you seem a little cranky. Maybe you should take a nap.\\
'''Arnold''': Look, I only helped you because you said you were desperate. You said you wanted to change. I guess I was wrong. Mr. Kokoshka, I'm sorry but you're a huge loser!\\
'''Ernie''': I told ya, that Kokoshka is a Class-A bum. A Class-A bum!\\
'''Mr. Hyunh''': He just no good! \\
'''Ernie''': I'm telling you Hyunh, that bum will never work a single day in his life.\\
'''Mr. Hyunh''': No!\\
'''Susie''': I'm sorry about Oskar, Arnold. I just wish for once he'd do what he says he's going to do. But I guess that just won't ever happen.\\
'''Arnold''': I know. I thought he really wanted to change. But he was just fooling us all, just like he always does.
** Eugene delivers one to the actor portraying [[TheAhnold The Abdicator]] when he learns the latter is [[NiceCharacterMeanActor nothing like the character he plays]].
-->'''Eugene''': You're a fake!
-->'''Maurice''': I'm just an actor.
-->'''Eugene''': Yeah, well to millions of kids you're a hero. We looked up to you. [[BrokenPedestal But now I know the truth: You're nothing but a fake.]]
-->'''Maurice''': [[BrutalHonesty Look, kid it's just a role I play.]]
-->'''Eugene''': Come one. You're a wimp.
