* DropInCharacter: Dan and Jenny Gordon, especially in the first episodes of season 2. Later partly justified in that Dan dated one of the sisters, but he still often use the excuse of YourDoorWasOpen.

The series successfully returned in comic book form in 2010 thanks to company Zenescope, receiving mixed to positive reviews from fans and critics alike. There are talks as of 2013 for a rebooted series on CBS, which hasn't set well with stars Alyssa Milano and Rose [=McGowan=].

** Alyssa Milano's acting in the first two seasons is remarkably different to how she portrays Phoebe later on. She functions more as TheHeart and often delivers her lines very dramatically. By Season 3, they realised Alyssa's gift for comic timing and retooled Phoebe slightly to make her a bit of a GenkiGirl. It's a similar case with Piper; while she retained more dramatic moments than Phoebe in later seasons, her DeadpanSnarker persona wasn't really touched upon until Season 3.

* {{Pirates}}: Type 1. They're also [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean magical undying cursed pirates]], of course. The films are given a ShoutOut when Phoebe asks if they're "hot Creator/JohnnyDepp pirates".

* DemonicPossession

to:

%%* DemonicPossession
* DemonicPossessionDenserAndWackier: The first two seasons leaned more towards {{Melodrama}} with the supernatural stuff as mainly a bit of flavouring. Season 3 made it more action-packed and tongue-in-cheek, with many of the more outrageous magical stuff getting {{Lampshade Hanging}}s. By the fifth season, several episodes would literally revolve around one of the sisters getting turned into a magical creature that required a SexyWhateverOutfit. This got reversed in the seventh and eighth seasons which were more serious - but not as much as the first two.

Added DiffLines:

* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: The main characters showcase a number of powers throughout the series which only appear in an episode or two and are never brought up again. For example Prue is able to cause a demon to explode by entering its body with her astral projection, and Leo can make himself look like other people. When the latter first appears its main use is to fake out the ''audience'' into thinking the sisters are fighting Cole, when in fact it as Leo altering his appearance for training purposes.

** Lampshaded in season three by their temporary Whitelighter/magical coach Natalie and Prue:
-->'''Natalie:''' You need outfits that are loose and move. That means no more braless, strapless, fearless attire.\\
'''Prue:''' Okay, but then I have nothing to wear.

* {{Omniglot}}: Whitelighters on the job have this ability (Paige doesn't seem to have it, though she was able to speak [[NewZealand Maori]] in "Imaginary Fiends"). Lampshaded when Piper became a Whitelighter in "Siren Song" when she automatically gained the ability.
