* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Corny Collins in the 2007 movie. Is he genuine about supporting integration like the others, or is he simply a media mogul who knows that he has to move with the times to survive, and is thus a cynical stab at how rights movements are able to make progress? Note his line 'This is the future' to Velma in the movie - he could well just be a benign version of the MC from Cabaret who plays to his audience.



* WhatAnIdiot: Really Tracy? You could have taken Link and Edna's advice into consideration and should have thought twice before joining the march? It could have saved you from being a fugitive and from all that trouble to [[spoiler: sneak into the pageant!]]

* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Tracy, possibly, since in "I Can Hear the Bells", she has no problem pushing people and pinning a guy against a locker.

* CrossesTheLineTwice
* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music Of Awesome]]: Some might say the entire thing, but the stand out number is clearly "You Can't Stop the Beat".

** It's arguable that the original Amber ''does'' have some JerkassWoobie points, considering that an early scene with her and her parents have them [[StageMom forcing her to practice dancing]] while threatening to send her to a convent if she doesn't comply, while other scenes have them seemingly spoil her and call her cutesy child names, which gives off some emotionally abusive vibes.

* FanPreferredCouple: Tracy & Seaweed, particularly due to the 2007 film, where Link's role of actually helping Tracy is cut and it's generally felt he did nothing to earn Tracy in the end other than feel sorry about his actions.

** Of course this doesn't apply to Amber in the 2007 film because it's easy to see that she would be much better off without Velma and the fact that it's impossible to hate BrittanySnow.

** Try watching James Marsden's epic wide smiles in the 2007 version nowadays without thinking that he must be an ancestor of [[Film/TheHungerGames Caesar Flickerman]].

* HollywoodPudgy: {{Averted}}, especially in the 2007 version. Nikki Blonsky, while extremely pretty, is also obviously overweight.

* FoeYay: A deleted number before the finale in the musical, "It Ain't Over 'Til The Fat Lady Sings", is Tracy singing a challenging song toward Amber whose lyrics not only get increasingly absurd as it goes on, but several of them begin sounding like double-entrades and terms of endearment.

* MoralEventHorizon: Crossed by Prudy in every incarnation, and always with the "permanently punished" scene. The original film [[PlayedForLaughs has her impose a]] CoolAndUnusualPunishment on Penny (force her to wear a giant letter P on her blouse every day), but the 2007 film [[PlayedForDrama makes her much worse]].
