The original show consisted of three series broadcast in China in 1998, 1999 and 2003 respectively. The series was extremely popular in Mainland China, Taiwan and South East Asia. The first two series helped three of its main actors, ZhaoWei, Ruby Lin and Alec Su, shoot to fame. Series 3 was [[{{FinalSeasonCasting}} significantly recast]] and thus suffered CriticalBacklash.

* InelegantBlubbering: ZhaoWei as Xiao Yan Zi does not cry prettily in this series. Contrast with Zi Wei's CryCute.

* StarMakingRole: For ZhaoWei and Ruby Lin Xin Ru. It also revived Alec Su You Pengís dwindling career.

* HonorBeforeReason: Yong Qi, who would rather be thrown into jail rather than abandon his friends, though if he had kept his mouth shut, it is likely that Qian Long would have honoured Lao Fo Yeís wishes and been guilted by Ling Fei into not imprisoning him. An IdiotBall moment that causes both Ling Fei and Er Kang to obviously mentally FacePalm.

** Understandable, because the series is set up to be a [[{{TheThemeParkVersion}} happy, bubbly show]] about love, family and friendship rather than to show the [[{{Main/TheLegendOfZhenHuan}} harsh realities of the imperial court]]. This shows in the way Xiao Yan Zi causes a lot of mayhem and troubles in the palace and gets off with barely any consequences. See also WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief.

* ActingForTwo: Lin Xin Ru as Zi Wei and Xia Yu He. Also GenerationXerox (physically, anyway).
** Averted in the remake where Lin Xin Ru reprises her role as Yu He, but another actress played her daughter Zi Wei.
* ActorAllusion: In series 2, in order to fool the soldiers who are looking for them, Xiao Yan Zi, posing as a crazy girl, calls Yong Qi "Xiao Hu Zi" - or Little Tiger. Alec Su, who plays Yong Qi, started his career as a member of the boyband Xiao Hu Dui/Little Tigers.
