* InformedAbility: As a character, Tracy's dancing wows everyone who sees her. In practice, her talent varies depending on the skills of the actress portraying her: in some adaptations she's at least as good as the rest of the cast, in others she's noticeably less so. It's an understandable variance, all things considered. (For similar reasons, Amber's said to be [[InformedFlaw a less-than-competent dancer]] but her actress is usually equal to anyone else in most scenes; she only makes obvious mistakes when we're ''supposed'' to remember she's a bad dancer.)

* DracoInLeatherPants: Amber (in the 2007 movie, at least) can come off as this. While the way her mother treats her and the HumiliationConga that she went through while participating in the pageant makes her come off as a JerkassWoobie, but Amber is still a {{jerkass}} and has done her fair share of {{jerkass}} deeds with or without her mother's influence (acting rude to the other dancers she works with for the Corny Collins show, gossiping about Tracy to her other classmates due to her jealousy over Tracy being a good dancer, intentionally gets Tracy sent to detention by her teacher, and her and her mother even fat-shaming Tracy's overweight mother).

* ToughActToFollow: Critical reception and ratings for NBC's version took a dive from their production of ''Theatre/TheWiz'' the previous December, and FOX's ''Film/{{Grease}}'' in between. Fans of the 2007 ''Hairspray'' movie also couldn't resist unfavorably comparing NBC's actors to its cast.

However, this telecast did manage to win three Creative Arts Emmy Awards, the most of any live NBC musical of TheNewTens thus far.

* NightmareFuel: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JSmox9yk6s Blood on the Pavement]]" provides a creepy ending to the Original Broadway Cast Recording, especially for listeners who assume the album would end with "You Can't Stop the Beat".

It comes out of nowhere and is a lot closer to Creator/JohnWaters' [[GallowsHumor usual sense of humor]] than the Beat".rest of the musical.

* HarsherInHindsight: In the original film, Amber's parents try to bomb the climactic concert. Just five months after Ariana Grande played Penny in the 2016 live show, a terrorist attack killed 19 people and injured dozens more at one of her concerts.
