* {{Retcon}}:
** Carrie's first major appearance in "The Ghost" was based around her taking over Gumball's body to taste food again, and she once specifically says she ''misses'' having a body. A season after that, in "Halloween", she states she was ''born'' a ghost. The later episode "The Mirror" [[{{Retcon}} suggests the latter still holds true]], as [[spoiler:it turns out her parents are a female ghost and a mortal man who used magic so he could interact with that ghost.]]
** Kip the reporter was originally a human from season 3 until "The News", where he was turned into a newspaper puppet.
** Ocho was supposed to only be able to make arcade sounds and not be able to communicate with other characters; he never even showed a mouth. In season 2 onwards, however, he gets a mouth to talk or express, and can speak normally.
** Anais was described as the smartest character in the entire show in early production text and a DVD. However, she began to be described as the smartest member of the Watterson family only, and Bobert is now said to be the smartest in the school.
** No matter how late in the show they are introduced, new characters are treated as if they've been there forever, and show up on flashbacks.

* AdultsAreUseless: Some episodes have it stronger than others. The only consistently competent adults in the show are Nicole (though she does have her wild moments) and Larry.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyAbsentParent:
** Tina's father is shown several times, but her mother is unmentioned.
** Billy is usually seen with his mother Fecility, but the one mention of his father makes it unclear whether his parents live together or share custody and Felicity was just dropping Billy off.
** While Hector's mother is a recurring character, his father is only mentioned to be a giant even larger than his son. Considering Hector is large enough to be seen from miles away, one assumes he doesn't (and probably can't) live in Elmore.
** Carrie's father [[spoiler:turns out to be the MonsterOfTheWeek in "The Mirror"]], but all that's known about her mother is that she's a ghost like Carrie. Whether she lives in Carrie's house (or in the world of the living at all) is unknown.
