* Unishment: Happens with Charlie twice in regards to Chelsea. Once, when she was considering a breast reduction to alleviate her back pain, Charlie talked her out of it by suggesting that if her breasts were smaller then that would put more focus on how fat her ass was. This nearly brings her to tears and she decided to live with the back pain, giving into what Charlie wanted all along. On another occasion, Charlie lied to her about having a colonoscopy appointment to get out of going to her parents' house. The trope is initially inverted, as Chelsea did find out that he was lying and flew her parents out to California as revenge. When the trip prompts her father into [[spoiler:coming out of the closet and leaving her mother]], she decides she has too much else on her plate to deal with given the recent developments, and forgives Charlie.

* InformedAttribute: There is an subplot involving Chelsea's breasts apparently being large enough to warrant a breast reduction.
* InformedAttractiveness: Walden in Season 9. He is particularly unkempt in appearance...long-haired, bearded, and often barefooted...and yet he is seen as the most attractive man on the face of the earth by every woman who meets him.

** The two examples below have occurred often enough to nearly take place once per season. Charlie kicks out Alan over a trivial argument. Alan (& sometimes Jake) wander the city looking for a place to live while Charlie quickly adapts to living without Alan. Eventually Alan returns to live with Charlie, usually at the suggestion of someone else. Incidentally Alan continued the tradition when Walden replaced Charlie.

** Charlie too, the guy depends on other people for ''everything''. As Alan put it: "You are a child. A high-maintenance child!"

* RearrangeTheSong: After writing Charlie Sheen out of the show necessitated new opening titles (which also meant abandoning the shot of Angus T. Jones circa season one morphing into his present day form), someone involved in the production pointed out that they also needed to replace the child singer in the theme song.

** Charlie dates a woman who's forbidden fruit (e.g. Jake's teacher or Alan's receptionist), dumps her shortly, & gives Alan a BS reason why he does it. Alan has seen it so often he lampshades what happens when Charlie loves & leaves his aforementioned secretary all within the span of an episode.

* AdamWesting: Charlie Harper is clearly based on Charlie Sheen, the actor who plays him. Though it seems this is the opposite of how it normally goes because Harper is the less exaggerated one.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: InUniverse. Rose once gives Charlie a copy of the novelisation of ''Theatre/OedipusTheKing'' and states it's "about a man who sleeps with his mother and gouges out his eyes", leaving out, as usual, the fact he did this ''unknowingly'', and the fact his mother hangs herself when she finds out he's her son.
