** After the posting of a preview video in which Wonderheart Bear was upset that Baby Hugs & Tugs had their belly badge powers, but she still didn't, there were [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkRxUwgMtRU&feature=g-high-u posts asking to bring back Oopsy]] to show her she's not the only one without a belly badge power. (Of course, there's a difference - Oopsy didn't even have a proper badge. Wonderheart does, she just can't use its power yet.)

* TastesLikeDiabetes: Played with. The villains themselves are often far darker than what you'd expect, and the more overt displays of cuteness are often PlayedForLaughs.

* TastesLikeDiabetes: Played with. The villains themselves are often far darker than what you'd expect, and the more overt displays of cuteness are often PlayedForLaughs. Additionally, with a series that spans so long and with so many different incarnations, this is highly variable based on which incarnation you're watching.

* VillainDecay
** After the first season of the Nelvana series, No Heart generally stopped being an active threat and usually sent his incompetent minions Shreeky and Beastly to do the dirty work. This was probably done because No Heart's animal transformations were too scary. After Shreeky was introduced his transformation power was only used for comedic effect, with him involuntarily transforming whenever Shreeky shrieked in his presence.
** Also, Professor Coldheart was actually menacing and had a pedophilic subtext around him in ''The Land Without Feelings''. In ''Battle the Freeze Machine'', he got a goofy sidekick and was less menacing than before, and then in the DIC show, he suddenly had a high-pitched voice and was generally a bumbling [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain joke of a villain.]]
** Any villains after the 2000 relaunch are [[HarmlessVillain bumbling villains]] at best. This probably stems from complains that the old movies and series were giving the target audience nightmares.[[note]]The 2000 relaunch was primarily marketed towards infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers, if the toys of the era are any indication.[[/note]]
** Dark Heart, fully in-movie. The guy can turn into a dragon or a menacing cloud...and spends most of his time in the form of a young boy, apparently gaining the weaknesses of that form too since bumping his head on a canoe knocked him out and almost made him drown.

* MemeticMutation: "The Caring Meter dropped! ''Two whole points!!!''"
** "Time for a game of disappearing bears."
** "Daaaaark Heeeaaart!!"
** "DO YOU HAVE A HOUSE MADE ALL OUT OF WOOD, FOR KEEPING YOU DRY WHEN IT'S RAINING."
** Swiftheart's quote: "We'll make 'em laugh so HARD, their [[AccidentalInnuendo grumPINESS]] will disappear!"



* NightmareFuel In the TV special ''The Care Bears Battle the Freeze Machine'', Baby Tugs and Baby Hugs frozen in star-shaped blocks of ice. And to ''really'' top it off, Baby Hugs crying a tear and the tear trickling down to the ground. [[TearJerker Oh ... God!]]
** In "Care Bears In Wonderland" during the evil wizards song when the lightning hits the wizard if you pause at the right time you get THIS REALLY NIGHTMARISH LOOKING FACE! [[http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c84/secondlina/CareBearsNightmareFuel.png]] that would make anyone pee themselves in fear.



* TearJerker
** The song ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hH04Lcfplg Forever Young.]]'' Especially if you've lost a loved one.
** In ''The Care Bears Battle the Freeze Machine'', Baby Hugs shedding a tear after she and Baby Tugs get frozen by Coldheart. See also NightmareFuel above.
** The ending of ''The Long Lost Care Bears'', where Perfect and Polite Panda [[spoiler:decide that their true home is in the valley and not with the rest of the bears.]] Made so, so much worse by Good Luck Bear's reaction -- [[spoiler:he and Polite had developed adorable little crushes on one another.]]

* IdiotPlot: As with many children's shows, the plots frequently revolve around characters making decisions that would defy common sense. It's more acceptable when it's the younger characters making these mistakes, but it's somewhat jarring when the more mature Bears, as well as the villains, act like idiots. Never mind, [[WhoWantsToLiveForever the Bears don't seem to physically age]], so all of them have been around for at least decades. So that means ''none of them'' have an [[JustifiedTrope excuse]] for their stupidity.
