* AlphaBitch: Nina Harper. Partially subverted - she's as rich, popular, and nasty as any proper Alpha Bitch, but is actually a top student in her class. On top of that, the reason she's nasty comes from her parents not paying attention to her and her accusing Sharon of wrecking her dolls when she was a kid ([[spoiler:until she finds out her cousin did it and that she wasted her life being mean to Sharon for no reason]]).

* EasilyForgiven: Allison. To be fair, many early episodes did show that she was nicer than Nina, and Sharon and Maria initially did not want to trust her, but they are all buddies the episode after she breaks off from Nina.

** Maybe. It depends on what the source photos were. A photo of a butt and a hand are not hard to stick together.... and sticking a finger up the nose is relatively easy as well.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: In "Vegging Out" Sharon becomes anemic due to a lack of iron and is forced to choose whether to stay vegetarian or not. First of all, no doctor treating someone with such a severe case would say "just eat meat" in order to get better. One would most likely supply their patient with iron supplement pills. Along with this, once someone becomes vegetarian their body eventually stops producing the enzymes needed to properly digest meat, so in Sharon's case eating an entire cheeseburger or hot dog (like she tried to do and what Cody tricked her to do) would make them violently ill.

* NoPeriodsPeriod: Notably, it was the first time that a non-adult animated series averted this, with an episode focusing on Sharon getting her first period while on her first date with Alden. As you can imagine, it ended in embarrassment for both, not necessarily because it was her first period, but because she was unlucky enough to have painful menstrual cramps, leading Alden to think it was appendicitis and call 9-1-1. Then at the hospital, when the nurse mistakenly gives Alden a bag of sanitary napkins (thinking he's Sharon's brother), Sharon grabs it from him and causes them to fly all over the waiting room (one even falls in a man's glass of water, absorbing all its content). Played with because, while she's embarrassed by Alden and her brothers finding out (it is Josh, her ''younger'' brother, who quite loudly tells their mom), and by her mom making a big deal about how she's "a woman now", it's said quite clearly her mom had told her in detail about menstruation and that it was going to happen sooner rather than later (she was just taken unawares by her cramps). Slightly inverted with her mom, as when Sharon protests, her mom begins to insist on it being a big deal, but she quickly backs off, remembering that to a girl Sharon's age it is a ''very'' personal and private matter.

* BreastExpansion / GagBoobs: One episode had Sharon buy a pump water bra to give her more prominent breasts. Thanks to her braces, it didn't end well. She ends up overdoing it, with humiliating results. First getting laughed at by the same people she was trying to impress, and then her boobs... pop.
** BuxomIsBetter: The same episode subvert this. After an initial thrill at all the extra attention her new fuller figure is receiving, she discovers that her more mature look comes with its own unique set of problems as attracting the "wrong" guys.
