* HotWitch: Both Hilda and Zelda are attractive witches with very active love lives. Their sister Vesta is even more glamorous, played by Raquel Welch! The novelizations state that witches are granted with eternal youth and beauty - though the appearance of a few elderly witches suggests it's not completely eternal. Aunt Irma, played by Barbara Eden in her forties, is said to be over two-thousand years old. Great Grandma is said to be even older.

** The WickedWitch looks like a straight example of this trope, but Aunt Hilda's comment implies it's due to surgery.
* HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday: It is stated that all witches must celebrate Halloween. If they don't embrace the horror, then the horror follows them. It happens to Sabrina in Season 4, where zombies party in the coffee shop she was taking care of (instead of celebrating Halloween).

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: Played straight or subverted depending on [[RuleOfFunny whatever is funnier at the time.]] Sabrina herself [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin keeps running afoul of]] a surprisingly large number of laws governing witch behaviour that are as byzanthine as they are draconean, but most other witches seem to be able to do whatever they want to whomever they want as long as a stronger witch doesn't oppose them.

* OneTrueLove: The final episode of the series reveals "soul stones;" everyone has one on the North Star, and those that fit together are soulmates. [[spoiler:Sabrina's soul stone and Aaron's are a close match, but ultimately don't fit together. Desiring not to make such a life-altering decision with valid proof that she might regret it, Sabrina walks away from the altar. As she's leaving the church, she runs into Harvey. They kiss and ride off into their HappilyEverAfter, as their soul stones fall and fit together ''perfectly'']].

* CastingGag: In one episode, it is revealed that Aunt Hilda (played by Quebec-born Caroline Rhea) failed to fill out her immigration paperwork, and when tested on the legality of her citizenship by reading a sentence, she reads it in an exaggerated Canadian accent. She is then promptly deported to "the Northern Sector of the Other Realm, where she came from." Subsequently, she is traded for badger pelts.



** In the ColdOpen of "Five Easy Pieces of Libby", Salem is accidentally turned blonde and remarks "I'm blonde! [[DeadpanSnarker My IQ just dropped 20 points.]]" Then he lets out one of his characteristic [[OhCrap "Gyehhh?!"]] sounds when Zelda points out that he just said that in front of three blond witches.

* YouLookFamiliar: Charles Shaughnessy played Hilda's egotistical date Alec in 'You Can't Twin' and reappeared later that same ''season'' as James Hexton in 'Witchright Hall'. ((This second appearance is probably because Shaughnessy was planning to star as Hexton in the series that 'Witchright Hall' would have become had it been picked up by the network.))
** Lindsey Sloane, who played Valerie, also played a mermaid in Sabrina Down Under. The fact that the mermaid looks and sounds exactly like her best friend completely passes the attention of both Sabrina and Salem...
** The actors of both Leonard and James from Season 7 (when Sabrina worked at Scorch) each appeared before: James was a defendant/witness in Season 1's "Trial By Fury" and Leonard was Mr. Kraft's cousin in Season 2's "The Band Episode".
** A variation. The puppet used for the cat Juliet in season 4 is the same one used for Hilary in ''Sabrina Down Under''. What makes this hilarious is that they're both cursed witches and Salem falls for both. Perhaps the Witches' Council are just lazy when turning witches into cats.

* BrokenAesop: Some people think this applies to the final episode when Sabrina ends up choosing her (magically) destined partner Harvey over her fiancee, despite the fact that several characters tell her that even though their soul crystals do not match, what matters is what the heart wants. Of course the characters' conjectures still hold true, since Sabrina spends half her engagement questioning her feelings towards the groom in favor of Harvey. It's made blatantly obvious that Sabrina and her high-school sweetie are not only destined partners by magic, but actually love each other more than anything.

* BurnTheWitch: PlayedForLaughs - Most witches are NighInvulnerable and burning them doesn't do a thing, but they are obviously irritated when people try to do it to them. Hilda and Zelda don't practice Thanksgiving because, while the Puritans may not have actually ''burnt'' witches, they still were not very "witch-friendly".

Ms. Quick certainly shows shades of this. She usually has a spell bringing out the psycho side, but a Season 4 episode shows her snapping at Sabrina's lack of responsibility for the paper.



** Averted during the sixth season's premiere, when Roxie and Sabrina dress up as nice, and very unlikely cheerleaders for Miles' horror movie.



* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: The series was somewhat notorious for this. Several major or reccuring characters (Drell, Jenny, Mr. Pool, Mrs. Quick, Dreama, Brad, and Miles) vanished without a trace.
** Justified in season 5 when the setting shifted from high school to college meaning that the likes of Mr Kraft and Mrs Quick would still be at the school while Brad and Dreama were off at other colleges. Again justified in season 6, when Sabrina moves back to her house and only brings Roxie and Morgan along (The house only has three rooms).
*** An episode at the beginning of Series 7 later has a television broadcast in the background with the words "...Goodman was shot today." said by the announcers, so he may actually be dead.

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange:
** Hilda mainly wears her hair short or bobbed for most of the series. When she comes BackForTheFinale after about a year of being HappilyMarried, her hair is long.
** Sabrina dyes her hair red during Season 5 while trying to find herself during college. She reverts to blonde as soon as she enters a relationship with Josh.

Sabrina uses her magic to turn Libby into a geek, hoping it will encourage her to change her ways and become nicer when she sees how hard it is.

* FollowTheLeader: Following the success of ''Sabrina'' (as well as the decline of family sitcoms) ABC tried to revive the TGIF line-up with more supernatural sitcoms including ''Teen Angel'' (about a guardian angel) and ''You Wish'' (about a genie). None were successful. Disney Channel would have better luck years later with shows such as ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''.
