* CloserToEarth: Walter, at first. In the early episodes, he stays calm and rational in the face of Maude's bombast and impulsiveness. Before long, though, Walter's ego nearly matches Maude's and he suffers constant crises of insecurity.

* CloserToEarth: Pretty much averted. Both Maude and Walter and pretty frequently shown to be childish, petty, and self-involved. The only difference is that Maude is at an advantage as far as delivering crippling put-downs.

* CovertPervert: Vivian is fairly innocent but she takes an intense interest in anything prurient going on in Maude's life. Apparently there isn't a lot going on in her and Arthur's sex life.

* PetTheDog: Arthur says lots of truly callous things about his patients, the poor, and anyone he isn't personally close to. He practically exists to be a conservative thorn in Maude's side, and his conservative viewpoints are very broadly caricatured. But when the chips are down, he'll do almost anything for the Findlays. This is especially true if one of them shows signs of any illness.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Like all of Norman Lear's contemporary productions, this is a very [[TheSeventies 1970s]] show in every respect.

* GrandFinale: "Maude's Big Move" albeit unintentionally, see ReTool.

* GrandFinale: "Maude's Big Move" Move", albeit unintentionally, unintentionally; see ReTool.

* ReTool: The last season of the show ended with a three parter that saw Maude becoming a congresswoman, her and Walter moving to Washington DC and the rest of the cast [[PutOnABus put on buses]]. This was an attempt by Norman Lear to give the show's ratings a boost after it had gone from being a top 10 show (peaking at #4) its first four seasons to falling out of the top 30 in its fifth and sixth seasons. This never really panned out because after the last episode of the season Creator/BeaArthur decided she had grown tired of playing Maude and she wanted to move on to other projects and [[RealLifeWritesThePlot as such the three parter ended up becoming an unintentional]] GrandFinale.

* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Maude occasionally borders on this. Hey, it's a Creator/NormanLear sitcom.
