* StatusQuoIsGod: Nancy and Need break up at the end of the eighth book of the ''Files''series. Within ''one'' book, things fall apart with their respective new partners--his is a self-centered bitch, hers a nitwit. By the next book, they're working on a reconciliation and by the book after that, they're back together.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Ned spends much of the first few books of the ''Files'' series bitching about always being second best to Nancy's detective work to the point where he finally breaks up with her. By the very next book after this, he himself needs those same detective skills to help his new girlfriend. His hypocrisy aside, this is also horrifically insensitive of him.

* FlipFlopOfGod - The series is written by a number of assigned ghostwriters under one pen name, therefore limiting on WordOfGod.
** It's gotten really bad in the recent series, ''Girl Detective.'' The stories are now spread over three-book trilogies, and it becomes clear that they're written by three different people who don't consult with each other (and don't seem to know much about the series itself.) In one, "Serial Sabotage," Nancy begins to call her housekeeper "Mrs. Gruen," despite calling her "Hannah" for the past 80 years. This was also book two in a trilogy, so she went from calling her Hannah to Mrs. Gruen back to Hannah, all in the course of three days.

The original series lasted 34 volumes from 1930-1956, but continued from 1957-1979 with volumes 35-56. In 1979, the series switched publishers from Grosset & Dunlap to Simon & Schuster, and finally ended with volume 175 in 2003. It was rebooted in 2004 (under the title ''Girl Detective''), featuring more modern sensibilities, and written in first-person. It ended in 2012 after 47 volumes, and 2013 saw a new series launch with the name ''Nancy Drew Diaries''. There have also been many spin-offs.

* RedHeadedHero: Accidentally. Originally, she was meant to be blonde, but a printing error on the original cover art gave her hair a reddish hue. Since then, her hair has always been reddish-blonde (with Titian-haired being their favorite way to describe it.)

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Though they're cousins, this is precisely Bess and George's relationship. Enough that it's a shock to everyone on the rare occasions that George dissolves into a giggly schoolgirl over a guy.

* AerithAndBob: Mostly chalked up to time, since quite a few names have fallen out of favor since the books were written, but a name like Mortimer Bartesque couldn't have been very common, even then.

* AerithAndBob: Mostly chalked up to time, since quite a few names have fallen out of favor since the books were written, written (as it is, names like "Nancy," "Bess," and "Ned" currently sound a little old-fashioned and not the kind of names you'd expect teenagers to have,) but a name like Mortimer Bartesque couldn't have been very common, even then.

Originally made by the StratemeyerSyndicate, and as such, written by a great many ghostwriters. The idea was conceived by Edward Stratemeyer, who also laid down the plot outlines, but most of the distinctive characteristics are due to the writer of the earliest volumes, Mildred Wirt Benson. Harriet Stratemeyer Adams, daughter of Edward, took over control of the Syndicate upon his death in 1930. Adams is primarily credited with keeping the Syndicate afloat through the Great Depression, and with revising the two most popular series, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, in the 1950s and 1960s, removing stereotypes and outdated ideas and language. She is credited with several books in the Nancy Drew series.
