** Straddling the line between harsher and hilarious, in one episode, a desperate Jake begins to work for a supremely stereotypical dot-com that produces absolutely nothing. Its much younger employees are all initial public offering-based millionaires, some of whom spend company time ordering things for themselves out of high-end catalogs. It looks like Jake didn't last there too long, which for once is good. Come the dot-com bubble burst just a few years later, people like these were pursued by the law, and when liquidation firms came in to recoup what they could, they found - unneeded item from high-end catalogs. "Is 6000 too much for a coffee table?" "Not if you love it!"

** Geoffrey Arend, the voice of Upchuck, the ultimate CasanovaWannabe who disgusts or even outright creeps out all the girls he's constantly hitting on? Married to Creator/ChristinaHendricks!

** In "The Invitation", Britanny asks if Daria's quote, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger", is from a song. Post-2011, [[Music/KellyClarkson it is]].

* UnfortunateImplications: The show is about teenagers students who don't feel like they fit in at school due to different interests from the norm. Did the writers of "Is it Fall yet?" think none of their fans would mind that the first and only non-heterosexual character would be a DepravedBisexual and hypocritical GoldDigger who's actions probably constitute attempted date-rape? Especially after portraying Upchuck and Tommy Sherman as merely annoying and rude respectively.

** Tom's potentially ending the relationship between Daria and Jane, and effectively sealing the fate of the flirtation between Daria and Trent Lane, caused Tom to be a very controversial character and his portrayls are all over the map. The fact that what Tom represented shifted during the course of the ''show'' leads to him coming off as very different in works written before the show ended, and his status as hero, villain, or neither are entirely based on where the author fell during the show's run. And that's just regarding his relationship to Daria, which was largely his only storyline in the entire show.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: While sticking to your personal morales and refusing to take part in a corrupt system is admirable, doing so will also usually make things in life much more difficult. Daria (and once, Jane) would tell several people with questionable ethics off, or quit a project that went against her morales only to have nothing to show for it afterwards (and sometimes, even be punished for it). At least twice they even [[LampshadeHanging lampshade this]], in Jane's case quitting the track team they point out while Jane refused to take part in a corrupt school athletic system, she also did nothing to try and change said system and both Daria and Jane were punished by the gym teacher for it, and in a later episode after Daria says she had to quit the school yearbook for 'morale reasons' Helen just sighs and says "again?"

** Way back in the first episode "Esteemsters" there's a throwaway gag about Daria's parents acting upset that their daughter apparently had low self-esteem, because they 'always tell her how wonderful she is, damnit!' This becomes much harsher when the final regular episode "Boxing Daria" aired, and showed the reason Daria's parents were so initially upset was because Daria used to have quite a problem with her attitude in school, so much so Jake and Helen actually had a rather heated argument over it, and were probably afraid it was happening again.

* YokoOhNo: Tom Sloan. He starts dating Jane near the end of season 3, but his growing attraction to Daria causes a serious rift between the two girls, who, up until then, were [[HeterosexualLifePartners inseperable]] for most of the show. This fact is not lost on Daria, and when she and Tom kiss each other it almost ruins their friendship.

* VanillaProtagonist: Daria has her witty, sarcastic remarks while sustaining her dispassionate expression while lacking the quirks of the other characters on the show.

* WhatTheHellHero: Generally, there are a lot of characters who deserve Daria's snark. However, during "Life in the Past Lane," Daria really goes overboard on harping on Jane's new date, Nathan, a retro guy who's really into the 1950s. Even though Nathan is only showing an interest in the culture, music, and style of the 50s, Daria decided to rain on his parade repeatedly by telling him just how racist and sexist the 50s were. And even after Nathan acknowledges Daria's criticisms and admits that his favorite era had its flaws and social inequalities, what does Daria do? ''She continues to snark at him and annoy him'' to the point where Nathan, quite justifiably, decides that he would really rather have as little to do with Daria as possible. Granted Nathan was eventually revealed to be a bit of an obsessive jerk towards the end of the episode but Daria's JerkAss behavior towards him before then was still completely uncalled for.
