* EpilepticTrees: When TeenNick's promotional machine cranks for new seasons and spills ''just enough'' information to get fans riled up and leading to this trope. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnxQaFgLcRA The carnival promo]] for season 10 is just ''made'' of this.

* ShipToShipCombat: Still very present in the fandom, but nothing can compare to the Great Shipping War that took place during season 3 and didn't end until ''season 8.'' Namely, there were five people involved in four parings: Craig/Ashely, Craig/Manny, Sean/Emma, Sean/Ellie, and Craig/Ellie. With the constant back and forth between the characters in question, the ShipTease, and {{Romantic Plot Tumor}}s the show put out, the war spanned forums, YouTube, the official {{TeenNick}} boards, LiveJournal, and couple specific fansites. Which makes it even more unreal (or pretty damn realistic) that absolutely ''none of the parings in question'' made it to OfficialCouple status.

Added DiffLines:

** Then there's a character like Miles, who has the benefit of being bisexual and who has dated most of the female cast and part of the gay male cast.


Added DiffLines:

** Because the LoveDodecahedron of the newer seasons expanded, the fandom can be regularly divided up into Maya/Zig vs Maya/Miles vs Miles/Tristan vs Zoe/Zig vs Zoe/Miles vs Grace/Zoe.

** To be honest, it was pretty unrealistic to assume that Spinner would receive no consequences for his confession. Jimmy's accusations of Skinner only telling the truth to benefit himself may have been untrue and harsh, but considering that he ended up paralyzed and depressed over his inability to play basketball thanks to Spinner, it was understandable. The moral can be chalked up to the home truth that confessing to something awful will cause you to face the harsh, but well-earned consequences of your actions.

* CanonSue: For the first three seasons or so, Emma being the voice of [[strike:the writer's]] her own [[strike:reason]] morality gave her some FixerSue qualities. Her vocal nature gave a heavy JerkSue overtone as well. ([[StatusQuoIsGod Her never getting called on this]] [[WhatTheHellHero naturally it made things worse]].)
** Mia. ''Dear god,'' '''''Mia'''''.



* JerkSue: Many fans view Emma as this (starting in Season 4), as she gets away with a lot of {{Jerkass}} behavior, rarely gets called out for said {{Jerkass}} behavior, is EasilyForgiven, and she is portrayed as somebody who can do no wrong.
** Eli in season 10 is turning into this as well, in many fans opinions. He gets called out for his JerkAss and illegal behavior maybe a few times, [[KarmaHoudini never faces any consequences for it]], and never apologizes for it either. Oh and apparently he's [[BlatantLies the most attractive male character on the show.]]



* PuritySue: A common criticism against Clare. The girl is a saint (although that hasn't stopped her from getting a few pretty good comebacks against Holly J and Jenna), she's smart, and she's [[InformedAttribute apparently the third prettiest girl in her grade]], and she's had a ridiculous number of guys show interest in her. The fact that she's dating the TroubledButCute Eli and that the writers are trying to make her into TheWoobie with her parent's divorce storyline certainly isn't helping matters. Then there's the fact that a HUGE deal is made out of her eyes, both in universe and out (which is odd, because she's hardly the first or only character on the show with blue eyes).

Added DiffLines:

** Grace started off as a minor background character, but her sarcastic nature, [[AmbiguouslyGay unclear sexual orientation]], and punk look quickly made her extremely popular. Now she's a main character.

** Zig, for [[TookALevelInJerkass taking a level in jerkass]], two-timing Tori, and as of the latest episodes, [[spoiler:attempting to break up the very popular Maya/Cam ship so he can have Maya for himself. It doesn't help that he called Cam - who has outright stated that he wanted to [[{{UsefulNotes/Suicide}} "fall asleep and never wake up"]] - a psycho, in an attempt to break them up. He also not only did not learn from the campbell incident, he then harasses maya and acts like she is entitled to have her then treats he like trash when she refuses him]]
