* ValuesDissonance: Michael spanking Gwendolen with a boot, for Christ's sake, and openly enjoying it, and Chrestomanci boxing Cat's ears hard for not stopping Gwendolen, who's dominated him his whole life, would be considered abusive by some nowadays, but maybe not in the 1970s when Charmed Life was written

* UnfortunateImplications: Michael clearly enjoys spanking Gwendolen, an attractive pubescent girl, and says he's been "itching" for Chrestomanci to allow him to. Which to this troper has creepy undertones of sexual sadism and hebephilia.

* AdultsAreUseless: Is it just me, or did [[spoiler:Chrestomanci (and Millie, Michael, the rest of the staff) do a terrible job handling Gwendolen and Cat?]]
CrazyAwesome: Angelica Petrocchi. She would not be nearly as effective if she wasn't tone-deaf. She may not be actually nuts, but as Renata put it, she's a "back-to-front genius."

* JerkassWoobie: Christopher in ''The Lives of Christopher Chant''. [[spoiler: You have to feel sorry for him when he is neglected by his own parents and his entire life is planned out after he is outed as a nine-lived enchanter. But his taking his frustration out on the people who are only trying to make him feel welcome in the Castle is a jerkass move.]]



** In ''The Pinhoe Egg'', Marianne's father and uncles cross it when it's revealed that, rather than [[spoiler:kill their father under their mother's orders when he starts getting too uppity]], they [[spoiler:merely crippled his legs and imprisoned him in a pocket dimension in the woods behind his house for ''eight years'']]. They felt it was kinder.

* CanonSue: Cat post ''Charmed Life''. His CharacterDevelopment works a bit too well and by the time ''The Pinhoe Egg'' is over, he becomes pretty Sue-ish. He's the most powerful magic user in all the multiverse, good at almost everything he tries and liked by everyone he meets who isn't evil.



* HarsherInHindsight: Most of the class bullies anyone who's suspected to be a witch. This can be attributed to FantasticRacism until [[spoiler: it's revealed that most of said bullies are witches, themselves, and know it.]]
