----

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Rachel Tice, who seems to be loathed by everyone at the school and her own sister except for Judith, [[spoiler: until she wins prom queen.]]
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Amberlynne, who is well regarded with warmth and positive input from just about everybody except Deandra, who doesn't know her since she's only been at Overland Park for two weeks. Even the warring cheerleaders and Van Burens stop to compliment her for "really deserving it" when she gets nominated for prom queen and [[spoiler: subsequently wins third runner up]].
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: The winner of prom queen gets immediately sidetracked by a dance routine from the football team, causing Mackenzie to go on a loud and vicious rant from the ridiculousness of the night.
* AlphaBitch: Mackenzie Zales seems to fit this role, or shares it with Shay Van Buren. Shay's sister Cameron seemed to fill it when she was in the school prior to the start of the series, and Mikayla appears to be this in the elementary school she attends.
* AgeInappropriateArt:
** In the third grade, all the girls loved the song Tipsy by J-Kwon.
** Third-grade Rachel Tice is obsessed with ''TheOC'' and all the girls proceed to discuss sexual plotlines on the show.
* AmbiguouslyBi: Than watches the football team take showers all the time apparently, but he still agrees to go to the prom with Shay.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Rachel Tice and Mikayla Van Buren.
-->'''Cameron Van Buren:''' Correction! ''Shay and I'' are at war with the Cheer Squad. ''You'' got sent home from school for infecting the entire third grade with lice.

-->'''Rachel Tice:''' I'm recording it on the DVR. DON'T ERASE MY DVR!
-->'''Bridget Tice:''' I'm going to watch it in the family room, you stupid. Fucking. [[CrossesTheLineTwice Abortion]].
* [[spoiler: ArtificialLimbs:]] As of the season 2 premiere [[spoiler: Deandra has prosthetics to replace her ripped-off arms. One looks like a regular arm, but the other is a cyborg arm that whirs whenever she moves it.]]
* AscendedExtra: Rachel Tice was supposed to be a one-shot appearance but they liked the voice so much that she got her own sub-plot.
* BackstabbingTheAlphaBitch: Deandra does this to both Alpha Bitches for the other.
* BetaBitch: Brittnay to Mackenzie, and Mackenzie loves pointing out that Brittnay is only the "co-head vice cheer captain" and expects her to act like it.
* BigEater: Deandra, if Episode 5 (Appropriately titled "$57 Lunch") is anything to go by.
-->'''Deandra:''' Can I have a hotdog?... Lemme get some tater tots. Oh, and, also, a slice of pepperoni pizza, and, also a basket of jalapeno poppers, and some chicken nuggets, a ketchup boat, three potato pancakes, a creamsicle, two quesadillas, a bread loaf, side of ranch, some pixie sticks, taco salad, an order of ribs, aaa{{and a diet coke}}- no. Strawberry shake. No! Diet Coke. NO! Both."
-->'''Lunch Lady Belinda:''' That is gonna be [[ToiletHumour one huge shit]].
* BlondesAreEvil: Arguably, the Van Buren Sisters, depending on what side you take. The same applies to Brittnay Matthews, and Mrs. Van Buren.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The three main cheerleaders, Brittnay, Mackenzie and Trisha.
* BodyHorror: In episode 11, [[spoiler: Deandra gets her arms ripped off]] during a fight between the Van Burens and the Cheerleaders.
* BrickJoke: In the first episode, Ashley Katchadorian lets Deandra into the bathroom, Trisha then mentions that Ashley isn't even in charge of the door, Jenna Darebon is in charge of the door. [[spoiler: In episodes 11 and 12, after Deandra gets her arms ripped off, Trisha blames Ashley because she wasn't watching the door. But then it turns out Ashley wasn't in charge of watching the door after all.]]
* ButtMonkey:
** [[InsistentTerminology Fucking Rachel Tice]].
** Jonathan is this amongst the guys.
* TheCameo:
** One of the cafeteria ladies is being played by a [[{{Tangled}} Mother Gothel doll.]]
** Additionally, Rachel Tice and her sister Bridget are [[{{The Little Mermaid}} Ariel]] and [[{{Brave}} Merida]] respectively.
** One of Amberlynn's friends (seen in Episode 10) is played by a [[{{Cinderella}} Cinderella]] doll.
** Saison Maguerite is a [[{{Beauty and the Beast}} Belle]] doll.
* CampGay: Tanner Christiansen's boyfriend, Tristan.
* CassandraTruth: Brittnay doesn't trust Deandra, who is currently backstabbing both the cheerleaders and the Van Burens.
* CatchPhrase: The Van Buren "Hi/By''eeee''!". [[spoiler: It's what gives Deandra away to the cheerleaders.]]
* TheCheerleader: Four have appeared onscreen (Mackenzie Zales, Brittnay Matthews, Trisha Capaletti) and Ashley Kachadorian, with others being mentioned (Amber Zendaihouse, Jenna Dairbon).
** As of episode 6, [[spoiler:Deandra]] seems to have joined them, after being enticed with the charms of the WondrousLadiesRoom.
** Cameron and possibly Mrs. Van Buren were formally cheerleaders as well, concidering Shay mentions that she is the only one in her family not to have become head cheerleader.
* TheChessmaster: Judith and Rachel consider themselves to be this, in regards to their plan to [[spoiler: get Rachel crowned Prom Queen.]]
-->Judith: See of you can explain all the twists and turns to these simpletons, Rachel.
-->Rachel: Well, [[spoiler: I gave every boy in school... a blow j.]]
** Deandra may be this too, as [[spoiler: she expected to win prom queen by pity vote (due to losing her arms)]].
* CloudCuckooLander: Trisha Capaletti.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Deandra with the Cheerleaders and the Van Burens.
* CrossDressingVoices: Yeah, but not as many as you might think. About half of the girls are voiced by men.
* DeadpanSnarker: Bridget Tice.
-->'''Tanner:''' "I'm Tanner Christiansen."
-->'''Bridget:''' "The answer to a question I never asked."
* DisproportionateRetribution: Mackenzie ruined Shay's life because Shay ate her Lunchable in second grade.
** In episode 12, Trisha has Brittnay make out with Ashley Kachadorian's boyfriend to get back at her for not watching the door.
* DepravedHomosexual: Lunch Lady Belinda may be this, as evidenced by her apparent crush on [[spoiler: Cameron Van Buren]].
** Jonathan Getslinhaumer may be this as well.
* TheDitz: Trisha and Blaine.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Jonathan, or rather, Than.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Gay Van Buren.
* EvilMatriarch: Mrs. Van Buren has shades of this since she eagerly helps Shay, Mikayla, and Deandra in their plots to humiliate the Cheerleaders, even lecturing them on the proper way to spike their energy drinks with laxatives and the correct time to do so.
* FallenPrincess: Rachel Tice used to be friends with Shay, Mackenzie and Brittany in the third grade. At least, until Brittany caught her eating a roly-poly straight out of the sandbox. It's been downhill for her ever since. [[spoiler: At least, until Prom Night....]]
** [[spoiler: Actually, by season two, Rachel is ''still'' unpopular. Mackenzie and the Cheerleaders point out that winning prom queen by giving blow jobs didn't make her popular. It just made her a whore.]]
* FalseFriend: Deandra to the Cheerleaders and the Van Burens. She sides with both of them just to reap the benefits.
* {{Fangirl}}: Rachel Tice, with her obsession with ''GossipGirl'' and previously (in the third grade), ''TheOC''. She also seems to be a big fan of ''[[Series/TeenWolf Teen Wolf]]'', enough to threaten her sister over it...
* FieryRedhead: Bridget Tice could count as such. Then again, given that she's portrayed by a doll of [[Film/{{Brave}} Merida]]...
* FlatWhat: Mackenzie's deadpan response to Rachel Tice's master plan.
-->'''Rachel Tice''': Well, [[spoiler: I gave every boy in the school a blow j.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: At prom..
-->'''Lunch Lady Belinda''': Forget it. The babies you make tonight are gonna be so stupid.
* FreakOut: Trisha Capeletti has one after [[spoiler: Deandra gets her arms ripped off]], royally chewing out Ashley Kachadorian in the process.
** Mackenzie has a VillainousBreakdown variant during prom after the poll results for prom queen keep getting sidetracked.
* FriendlyEnemy: Why the Van Burens seem to despise Mackenzie and Brittnay with a passion, they seem fairly neutral around Trisha. Mikayla even seems to be developing a somewhat odd friendship with her.
* FullNameBasis: Pretty much everyone except [[OnlyOneName Deandra]]. Honestly it'd be easier to count when characters aren't referred by their full names.
* GrumpyBear: Bridget Tice
* HairTriggerTemper: Brittany is this trope embodied.
* HeyItsThatGuy: A strange variant. Other than the aforementioned [[Film/{{Brave}} Merida]] doll as Bridget Tice, we also have Rachel Tice, portrayed by an [[WesternAnimation/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]] doll, Lunch Lady Belinda, portrayed by a [[{{Tangled}} Mother Gothel]] doll, Saison Marguerite portrayed by a [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle]] doll, Mikayla Van Buren [[ActingForTwo and]] young Brittnay portrayed by a Barbie's Little Sister Kelly doll, and Ashley Katchadorian, portrayed by a doll of Skipper, one of Barbie's younger sisters and part of the main cast of ''Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse''.
* HoistByHerOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Deandra gets her arms ripped off in a fight between the cheerleaders and the Van Burens.]]
* HollywoodHomely: Rachel Tice is so ugly in-universe that she is mistaken for a boy by [[StraightGay Tanner]].
* HotBlooded: Brittnay gets worked up really easily, lets just say that.
* IgnoredEpiphany: After [[spoiler: losing to fucking Rachel Tice]], Mackenzie and Shay muse on the fact that maybe they should focus on being nicer to people instead of being shallow bitches. They both immediately nix this idea in favor of devoting the rest of their lives to destroying [[spoiler: Rachel Tice]], and then deciding they still hate each other.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Trisha Cappelletti and Mikayla Van Buren seem to have this.
* JerkJock: Subverted with the football team. Other than slamming into Judith at lunch, [[spoiler: and nominating Rachel Tice for prom queen in exchange for blow jobs (except Matthew)]], the jocks are fairly amicable and only really show hostility towards Than for being an annoying creep. They're also completely accepting of Tristan's homosexuality and Matthew's [[spoiler: lack of a penis and testicles due to a birth defect.]]
* LargeHam: [[WorldOfHam Pretty much everyone]], with the possible exception of [[TheSnarkKnight Bridget Tice]].
--> '''Shay Van Buren:''' This is the worst thing that has ever happened to anybody ever!
* LaserGuidedKarma: Deandra [[spoiler: getting her arms ripped off may count because of how she was playing both the Cheerleaders and the Van Burens. Also, the fact that she didn't win prom queen.]]
* LimitedWardrobe: While everyone pretty much wears the same outfit throughout the series, they all dress-up for Prom except for Deandra, who's still wearing the same dress. She even lampshades it.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters
* LovableAlphaBitch: Trisha compared to Shay and Mackenzie. Her only genuine bitchy attack on someone else was vengeance against Ashley Kachadorian not watching the door which led to [[spoiler: Deandra's maiming. And when Trisha finds out Ashley was innocent she felt guilty about it.]]
* MoralityPet: Amberlynn to Mackenzie and Brittany, who both have nothing but nice things to say about her.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: In episode 12, [[spoiler: Trisha has Brittnay make out with Ashley Kachadorian's boyfriend at prom as revenge for not watching the door when she should've, which led to Deandra getting her arms torn off. However, Brittnay says that Ashley is in charge of snacks, not the door, and Trisha realizes she made a horrible mistake.]]
* MyNameIsNotDurwood: Shay Van Buren starts being constantly called Gay after being nominated for Prom Queen.
* NiceGirl: Amberlynn, whom everyone seems to consider an inspiration. Except Deandra, but as Shay points out Deandra's only been at the school for two weeks so she probably doesn't know everybody.
--> Trisha: Wow, good for Amberlynn.
--> Mackenzie: Yeah, she totally deserved it.
* NiceGuy: Matthew Derringer and Tanner Christensan.
* NobodyPoops: {{Averted}} hard.
** To the point that Deandra's catchphrase is "[[CallingYourBathroomBreaks I'm ... going to go poop now]]."
* NoPeriodsPeriod: Averted. The cheer squad calls Mackenzie's period "Shark Week".
* NoodleIncident: Just about everything of importance seems to have occurred in the Third Grade. Subverted in that we see a flashback to the Third Grade, where all of these events are shown.
* NotSoHarmless: Trisha.
* OnlyOneName: Deandra, Blaine, and Judith, which is a big contrast to everyone else's FullNameBasis status.
** Deandra's last name may be "The New Girl," considering this is how her name is announced over the PA [[spoiler: when she's nominated for prom queen]].
* OppositesAttract: Tanner and Tristan.
* PetTheDog: When Trisha reveals that she nominated Brittnay for Prom Queen, she seems genuinely touched.
** Mackenzie and Brittnay both saying nice things about Amberlynne and seemingly meaning it.
* PregnancyTropes: Likely to be seeing a few, now that [[spoiler: Saison Maguerite]] is pregnant with [[spoiler: Blaine]]'s baby. [[CrossesTheLineTwice Knowing this show]], there's a strong possibility of DeadBabyHumor coming up as well.
* PreppyName: Pretty much everyone, except for, maybe, Rachel Tice, Judith, and Lunch Lady Belinda.
* PunchClockVillain: In Episode 10 Deandra asks Shay if the girls talk about anything other than revenge.
* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: {{Averted}} - characters regularly talk over each other, repeat words and add filler when needed.
** Mostly due to the voice actors being experienced in improv and [[ThrowItIn going off script regularly]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Trisha's ''epic'' rant against Ashley Kachadorian for not watching the door when she was supposed to, leading up to [[spoiler: Deandra getting her arms ripped off.]]
* RevengeBeforeReason: Does not go unlampshaded.
-->'''Deandra''': Do you guys ever talk about anything other than like, revenge?
* RunningGag: Whether or not Ashley Kachadorian is supposed to watch the door, as well as Brittnay being told she gives sub-par hand jobs, stuff happening in the 3rd grade, among others.
* ShoutOut: Chock full of 'em. From Gossip Girl, Glee, The OC, Pokemon, Ryan Cabrera, and Gremlins.
** Let's not forget the shout outs to Kansas in general.
** Rachel Tice at one point says [[TeenGirlSquad so good.]] This may or may not be intentional, though her voice bears a strong resemblance to the characters from TGS.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The internet has no fucking idea how to spell Ashley Kachadorian/Katchadorian/Kathcadourian/Kachadourian/Cachadorian(etc)'s last name.
* {{Squee}}: At the beginning of episode 13, Lunch Lady Belinda, of all people, lets out a fangirl screech after the principal announces [[spoiler:Cameron]] as the announcer of the Prom Queen poll results.
* TheStarscream: Brittnay to Mackenzie, although she's not exactly subtle about it.
* StraightGay: Tanner.
* TakeAThirdOption: [[spoiler: Rachel Tice won prom queen via write-in votes from the boys since she wasn't officially nominated.]]
* {{Toilet Humour}}
* TransparentCloset: Than.
* TwoTeacherSchool: The only members of the faculty appear to be Lunch Lady Belinda, Principal Nubbins and Coach Spitz.
* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Subverted. Rachel and Judith are always talking about their "plan" but never about what it is exactly. We're led to believe that they are either manipulating the Cheerleader/Van Buren feud, or are just a couple of idiots. [[spoiler: It turned out Rachel gave every boy in school a blow job (except for Matthew, who doesn't have a penis) in order to win Prom Queen, and had the Cheerleaders and the Van Burens stopped feuding they may have noticed.]]
* UnusualEuphemism: Brittnay's use of "Growler", to refer to her [[DoubleEntendre pussy]].
* VillainousBreakdown: Mackenzie has one in the 13th episode when the crowning of prom queen is delayed by a dance routine from the football team.
-->'''Mackenize''': Get off my stage!
-->'''Matthew Deringer''': Uh now wait a min-
-->'''Mackenzie''': ''GETOFFMYSTAGE!!!''
* VillainProtagonist: Arguably Shay and Mackenzie both qualify, given that the majority of the series is about them trying to destroy one another and their respective groups for dominance in the school.
* TheVoice: Principle Nubbins.
* TheVonTropeFamily: The Van Burens.
* WebcomicTime: The first half of the first season takes place over the course of a day, with episodes being released a month apart. Lampshaded by Mackenzie:
-->'''Deandre''': Yeah, you cursed me out in the bathroom earlier today.
-->'''Mackenzie''': Oh my God, was that today? That seems like so long ago. Right, Trisha?
-->'''Trisha''': That was like literally hours ago.
* WorldOfHam
* XMeetsY: ''MeanGirls'' plus ''RobotChicken''.

* OppositesAttract: Tanner and Tristan.
* PetTheDog: When Trisha reveals that she nominated Brittnay for Prom Queen, she seems genuinely touched.
** Mackenzie and Brittnay both saying nice things about Amberlynne and seemingly meaning it.
* PregnancyTropes: Likely to be seeing a few, now that [[spoiler: Saison Maguerite]] is pregnant with [[spoiler: Blaine]]'s baby. [[CrossesTheLineTwice Knowing this show]], there's a strong possibility of DeadBabyHumor coming up as well.
* PreppyName: Pretty much everyone, except for, maybe, Rachel Tice, Judith, and Lunch Lady Belinda.
* PunchClockVillain: In Episode 10 Deandra asks Shay if the girls talk about anything other than revenge.
* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: {{Averted}} - characters regularly talk over each other, repeat words and add filler when needed.
** Mostly due to the voice actors being experienced in improv and [[ThrowItIn going off script regularly]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Trisha's ''epic'' rant against Ashley Kachadorian for not watching the door when she was supposed to, leading up to [[spoiler: Deandra getting her arms ripped off.]]
* RevengeBeforeReason: Does not go unlampshaded.
-->'''Deandra''': Do you guys ever talk about anything other than like, revenge?
* RunningGag: Whether or not Ashley Kachadorian is supposed to watch the door, as well as Brittnay being told she gives sub-par hand jobs, stuff happening in the 3rd grade, among others.
* ShoutOut: Chock full of 'em. From Gossip Girl, Glee, The OC, Pokemon, Ryan Cabrera, and Gremlins.
** Let's not forget the shout outs to Kansas in general.
** Rachel Tice at one point says [[TeenGirlSquad so good.]] This may or may not be intentional, though her voice bears a strong resemblance to the characters from TGS.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The internet has no fucking idea how to spell Ashley Kachadorian/Katchadorian/Kathcadourian/Kachadourian/Cachadorian(etc)'s last name.
* {{Squee}}: At the beginning of episode 13, Lunch Lady Belinda, of all people, lets out a fangirl screech after the principal announces [[spoiler:Cameron]] as the announcer of the Prom Queen poll results.
* TheStarscream: Brittnay to Mackenzie, although she's not exactly subtle about it.
* StraightGay: Tanner.
* TakeAThirdOption: [[spoiler: Rachel Tice won prom queen via write-in votes from the boys since she wasn't officially nominated.]]
* {{Toilet Humour}}
* TransparentCloset: Than.
* TwoTeacherSchool: The only members of the faculty appear to be Lunch Lady Belinda, Principal Nubbins and Coach Spitz.
* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Subverted. Rachel and Judith are always talking about their "plan" but never about what it is exactly. We're led to believe that they are either manipulating the Cheerleader/Van Buren feud, or are just a couple of idiots. [[spoiler: It turned out Rachel gave every boy in school a blow job (except for Matthew, who doesn't have a penis) in order to win Prom Queen, and had the Cheerleaders and the Van Burens stopped feuding they may have noticed.]]
* UnusualEuphemism: Brittnay's use of "Growler", to refer to her [[DoubleEntendre pussy]].
* VillainousBreakdown: Mackenzie has one in the 13th episode when the crowning of prom queen is delayed by a dance routine from the football team.
-->'''Mackenize''': Get off my stage!
-->'''Matthew Deringer''': Uh now wait a min-
-->'''Mackenzie''': ''GETOFFMYSTAGE!!!''
* VillainProtagonist: Arguably Shay and Mackenzie both qualify, given that the majority of the series is about them trying to destroy one another and their respective groups for dominance in the school.
* TheVoice: Principle Nubbins.
* TheVonTropeFamily: The Van Burens.
* WebcomicTime: The first half of the first season takes place over the course of a day, with episodes being released a month apart. Lampshaded by Mackenzie:
-->'''Deandre''': Yeah, you cursed me out in the bathroom earlier today.
-->'''Mackenzie''': Oh my God, was that today? That seems like so long ago. Right, Trisha?
-->'''Trisha''': That was like literally hours ago.
* WorldOfHam
* XMeetsY: ''MeanGirls'' plus ''RobotChicken''.

They both immediately nix this idea in favor of devoted the rest of their lives to destroying [[spoiler: Rachel Tice]].

** [[spoiler: Actually, by season two, Rachel is ''still'' unpopular. Mackenzie and the Cheerleaders point out that winning prom queen by giving blow jobs didn't make her popular. It just made her a whore.]]

* FriendlyEnemy: Why the Van Burens seem to despise Mackenzie and Brittnay with a passion, they seem fairly neutral around Trisha. Mikayla even seems to be developing a somewhat odd friendship with her.
