* AntiVillain: The Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak[[note]]Ya-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-ta ta! Ta![[/note]] in the first '80s television special, Raisin Cane in the 1986 comic book, and every antagonist in the 2003 series. In regards to the latter, Sour Grapes is a prime example of this trope, though this is subverted for her on some occasions.

* AlphaBitch: Peppermint Fizz in the first seasons, but she outgrows it. Angel Cake develops into this in the final season, and Lime Light is introduced as this. Lemon Meringue is an alpha bitch in one episode of the final season.



* TheKiddieRide: Officially, averted, hence it's not in the index. However, [[http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/7701/13122010009.jpg that didn't stop some of the more enterprising from trying]].

* NotSoDifferent: Raspberry Torte, the young jaded tomboy, and Sour Grapes, a bitter and feminine woman, touched on this in ''The Sweet Dreams Movie''. Both are pessimists by nature, both are quite loyal to one person (Lemon Meringue and Purple Pieman, respectively), and both had the same abandoned dream. The younger established her role as AntiHero and the elder as AntiVillain, roles they continued afterward.

* SelflessWish: In ''Berry, Merry Christmas''', when SantaClaus asks Strawberry what she wants for Christmas, she sobs because she's worried that she won't be able to find a gift for Huckleberry. After reassuring her that things will be alright with Huck, he asks her just what it is that ''she'' wants, but she can't come up with anything other than that she wants to make sure all of her friends get good gifts. To further drive home the point, most kids have a Christmas list of things they want for Christmas. What Strawberry calls her "Christmas list" is actually her list of things she plans to buy for her friends.

** Huckleberry Pie, most of the time.
** The first two 1980s specials had another male character in Plum Puddin', but he didn't have a corresponding doll. The character was reintroduced as a female in 1984, and finally got represented as a toy this way.

* InnocentlyInsensitive:
** Strawberry Shortcake's friends always mean well, but throughout the specials sometimes come off as unable to understand the consequences of their actions and not ''thinking them through'' first. In the first special, they have a wonderful plan to hold a surprise birthday party for Strawberry Shortcake. Instead of giving Strawberry something to do until party time, however, the manner they chose to keep the secret involves rebuffing and ignoring her when she offers to have lunch with them. This drives her to tears thinking no one loves her; she would miss the party completely if ''the friggin' Sun Narrator'' didn't get fed up and spill the beans that her friends didn't desert her and are in fact waiting for her right then!

* RaceLift: Lime Chiffon in her 1980s design has brown skin and green hair. The 2003 series made her into a light-skinned blonde, but the 2018 series brings back her original skin-tone and gives her green-and-brown hair.

In general, the clothes are more simple-looking and the art-style is wildly different than before.

** The 2003 series played it generally straight, but with some weirdness at times. For example, Apple Dumplin' was a toddler in this series, but the intro sequence depicted her as the same age as the other main characters. There was also an episode in which she was shown having a dream of being older. Despite all of this, the show went on for several seasons without any growing up, so it's fair to say it was almost entirely straight.

In 2003, she came back again, this time with a series of DirectToVideo specials, all of which were subsequently split up into a TV series. [[TheMovie It also spawned two movies]], regular soundtrack releases, and games. In this incarnation, she still lived in Strawberryland, but her friends lived in their own lands, and for a while there were no villains, just life lessons to be learned. In 2007, the Purple Pieman and Sour Grapes were re-introduced as villains and the character models were changed to make the characters look more like teenagers, but otherwise the series still followed the same basic format. This series is currently being offered on demand on some U.S. cable and satellite services through Creator/{{Kabillion}}, on sale on Creator/LeapFrog's [=AppCenter=], and available to those subscribed to Hulu Plus.
