* SeriesContinuityError: Silver's age. She was born at the start of the original show's third season (1992) yet graduated with the class of 2011. With summer birthdays, students usually graduate before their 18th birthdays, though Silver would've had hers before the beginning of season 3 (her senior year), instead of season 4 (college freshman year).

* FakePregnancy: Valerie claims to be pregnant in order to extort money from her married lover, but it's not for child support, it's for her supposed abortion and to not blab to his wife.



** Laura claims Steve raped her. It's not clear if she genuinely felt violated because he both blew her off afterwards and turned out to have been cheating on his girlfriend with her or if she was just trying to get back at him for both of these transgressions, but either way, Kelly gets her to admit that she never told him "no".

* OverprotectiveDad: Papa Walsh was this for Brenda, while Brandon got a lot more slack.slack to the point of DoubleStandard and {{Hypocrisy}}--he's completely blithe and matter-of-fact about Brandon losing his virginity while ''in the house'', merely feet away from his sleeping parents, but completely flips out upon finding out that Brenda is sleeping with Dylan and flips out even more when Brenda makes it clear that Dylan did not force or seduce her.


Added DiffLines:

* SecondLove: Kelly to Dylan after Brenda. Toni is the Third Love.

Added DiffLines:

*** Emily herself accuses Brandon of treating her like a tramp after he breaks up with her even though he's actually done nothing of the sort--although he's (rightfully) complained about her crazy behavior, he's said nothing to indicate that she's promiscuous.

** Kelly, twice. First during a High School Halloween party by a fellow student (she was wearing a revealing dress and the guy, and, disturbingly, her friends, tried to justify his rape attempt her on her skimpy dress); later in college when she had gotten addicted to drugs, she was almost raped by a guy selling her cocaine (but she got out of it by smashing a bottle of wine on his head). In addition, she also got ''actually'' raped in a later season.

** Ditto for non-studious students like Kelly, Donna, and Brenda. FridgeBrilliance could be applied, if you consider the fact that many of them are wealthy (hence connections, including Steve's father being an alumni of California University), though in reality, it may take more than just connections to get into the school they want.

* ChickMagnet: Mainly Brandon, Sometimes also {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by other characters. And also Dylan and Steve to a lesser extent as well.

* DisappearedDad / MissingMom: Zig-zagged. Several of the main characters' parents are absent for long periods, or were hardly mentioned. Examples include Kelly's dad Bill Taylor (sure he was shown, [[DaddyDidntShow only to disappear]] [[ParentalAbandonment for years at a time]]), Andrea's parents Kenny and Gail Zuckerman (showing up once at her wedding), David's mom Sheila Silver (had mental issues, a nervous breakdown, became homeless, later recovered, only to [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome disappear again]]), and Dylan's parents Jack and Iris [=McKay=] (at first; they recurred in several episodes in the first four seasons, though never lived with Dylan)

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Gina for Valerie, down to their [[AlphaBitch bitchy qualities]] and their rivalry with Kelly (basically Gina was Valerie on ice skates). Arguably, Noah for Dylan, because of their collective issues with their wealthy fathers, alcohol issues, and their "bad boy" attitudes; however, unlike most examples of the trope, both were on the show at the same time (the last two seasons).
