* BrokenAesop: In "Siren Says," Jake takes part in a bachelor auction, rigging the bids so that he ends up with the beautiful captain of the school swimming team, Danika Hunnicut. Trixie justifiably chews Jake out for his shallow behaviour, accusing him of only caring about looks. Over the next couple of days, Jake keeps falling into magical trances whenever he's around Danika, causing him to stumble into dangerous situations. Trixie suspects Danika of foul play, believing she is manipulating Jake for her own amusement. However, it is revealed Danika is innocent, and that the true culprit is [[spoiler: a [[EnthrallingSiren siren]] named Vicky Fickling, who was also bidding for Jake at the auction]], who framed Danika by giving her the magical necklace that caused Jake's trances. Once the matter is settled, Jake and his friends discuss what kind of lesson they were meant to take away from the experience, with Jake pointing out that if he ''hadn't'' chosen Danika for purely superficial reasons, he would have wound up with [[spoiler:an evil, mind-controlling siren]] rather than a [[BeautyEqualsGoodness genuinely nice and sweet girl]].
* CallingTheOldManOut: In the second to last episode 'Being Human' Jake has had enough after two years of having to deal with constant threats to the magical world. Getting in trouble with his dad and losing Rose while being expected never to falter or complain about his duty without time to enjoy himself whatsoever and deliberately gets his responsibility removed so he can relax actually be a fourteen year old kid for once. [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Haley]] is given the responsibility in the meantime, and while at first claims she will be a better dragon than him, she turns into to a stressed out mess in less than a week. When Haley accidently reveals Jake got his powers removed on purpose, Lao Shi starts to rant about his irresponsible grandson for not flawlessly rising to the thankless job, she snaps and tongue-lashes him. Pointing out how difficult it is and how much Jake's had to give up to be the American Dragon. Saying that it might have been stupid, but it wasn't selfish for him to want to actually want to be a kid for a few days-- generally considered her finest moment in the series.
