* NoSmoking: Borderline averted in one episode, where Becky's {{Muggle}} dad uses a cigarette lighter to [[ItMakesSenseInContext light a candle on a magic cupcake]]. It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, but even that's pretty envelope-pushing for PBS.

The show's name is officially spelled in CamelCase. If you want to refer to the character of the same name without creating a recursive link, put brackets around the name like so: [=WordGirl=]

* GenreSavvy: When something that might be peril rears its ugly head, [=WordGirl=] knows she's facing a HarmlessVillain who is in no way threatening to her. She even offers the occasional bit of advice.



** In "The Fill-In," The Butcher shows up as a temporary fill-in for Dr. Two Brains's henchman, Charlie. Dr. Two-Brains tells him that he's too good to be just a temporary fill-in and tries to insist on one of these instead, but The Butcher turns him down flat because "[[DangerouslyGenreSavvy they never work]]" and even tells him "ItsNotYouItsMe." He later jets in the middle of a robbery when Charlie returns.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Tobey in "By Jove, You've Wrecked My Robots" comes extremely close to exposing [=WordGirl=]'s secret identity and manages to see through almost all of Becky's attempts at denying it.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The Rise of Miss Power.
** Subverted in "Don't Mess with the Best." Dr. Two-Brains tells Victoria Best that if she 'really' wants to get rid of [=WordGirl=] and prove she's the best villain, she should push that red button on the back of his cheese ray. Turns out [[spoiler: it just sprays Victoria in the face with gunk, causing her to drop it, and allowing Dr. Two-Brains to pick it back up]].
