* ShipTease: Beezus and Henry being appointed to play as Mary and Joseph for a church play in "Ramona and her Father" may count. Especially with Beezus acting all shy to be playing Henry's partner, and Henry himself actually agreeing to the role, as Ramona expected him to be too busy to bother with such things. It never goes anywhere, though, since Henry has all but [[ChuckCunnighamSyndrome disappeared from the plot]] since.

* DemotedToExtra: Henry Huggins, the protagonist of the prequel series, barely gets any mention in the ''Ramona'' series.



* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Picky-Picky in ''Ramona Forever'' dies quietly of old age. The girls bury him in the back yard and share memories of him.]]

* DeathByNewberyMedal: ''Ramona Quimby, Age 8'' and ''Ramona and Her Father'' avert this trope: despite each winning a [[NewberyMedal Newbery Honor]], neither book has anyone die.

* DeathByNewberyMedal: ''Ramona Quimby, Age 8'' and ''Ramona and Her Father'' avert this trope: despite each winning a [[NewberyMedal Newbery Honor]], neither book has anyone die. In ''Ramona Forever'' [[spoiler:the family cat Picky Picky dies of old age]], but this trope is downplayed: the loss itself adds less to Ramona's character development than her sisterly bonding with Beezus does as [[spoiler: they bury him together]] and resolve an earlier misunderstanding.

* ADayInTheLimelight: ''Beezus and Ramona'' is the first book to center around the Quimby girls, who'd previously been supporting characters in the Henry Huggins books.
** ''Ramona the Pest'' is the first book written from Ramona's perspective, which would hold for the rest of the series.

** Beezus considers Ramona to be this. When Ramona is first introduced in ''Beezus and Ramona'', she comes off like this to the reader, but becomes more sympathetic as time goes on and we see things from her point of view in her own series.
** Willa Jean for Howie as well. Aunt Bea was also implied to have been a lot like Ramona when she was young (while the girls' mother was a lot like Beezus).

** Beezus considers Ramona to be this. When Ramona is first introduced in ''Beezus Beezus, especially when she was younger. She constantly bugs Beezus to play with her when Beezus wanted to do other things, and Ramona'', often embarrasses her in front of others (such as stealing one of her classmate's candy, disrupting the board game she comes off like this to was playing with Henry and destroying Beezus' birthday cake by shoving her doll inside the reader, but becomes more sympathetic as time goes on and we see things from her point of view batter while it was in her own series.

** Willa Jean to Howie, for Howie similar reasons as well. Aunt Bea was also implied to have been a lot like Ramona when she was young (while the girls' mother was a lot like Beezus). Ramona: noisy and attention-seeking.



* BrattyHalfPint:
** Willa Jean, Howie's little sister, who is four years younger than Ramona and Howie. Both Ramona and Howie can't stand her, and especially the fact that Willa Jean never seems to get in trouble for the things she does. Or the fact that Ramona is blamed when Willa Jean does something wrong, because supposedly looking after a bratty little kid is another kid's job. She does, however, get a lot better in ''Ramona Forever'' (the last book she appeared in).
** Ramona herself was actually introduced as the BrattyHalfPint of the ''Henry Huggins'' series. She played this role through that series, in the single book written from Beezus' point of view, and was still obviously this to some people in her first couple books.

* CharacterOverlap: Occasionally features Henry Huggins and several other characters from his own books. Justified, as both series take place in the same neighbourhood.
