* HilariousInHindsight: In one episode, a martial arts class is taught by Arnold, played by Pat Morita. Happily, [[Film/TheKarateKid Daniel-San]] was a better student than [[ButtMonkey Richie]].

* FranchiseOriginalSin: The moment of vertical ascension over an aquatic carnivorous animal is considered merely the point where Fonzie's flanderizing into a superhuman and the lost of the 1950s motif reached its zenith. Both those things had subtly been going on as the seasonal rot kicked in.

* BaseBreaker: Chachi-nated, or De-Chachi-nated? Nick at Nite even made a marathon out of this premise, and viewers got to vote.

* BrokenBase: Despite being the TropeNamer for JumpingTheShark, a term that was coined when Fonzie jumped over a shark during Season 5, opinions widely vary among fans on when the show actually started going downhill. Some argue that the show went downhill as early as Season 3, when the show started being taped in front of a live audience. Some will say when Fonzie actually jumped the shark. Others will say when Richie and Ralph left the show after Season 7. A number of fans will even argue that the show stayed good for all 11 seasons.

** Mork was only supposed to be a one-shot character and his episode AllJustADream, but RobinWilliams' performance was such a hit that the episode was revised to make the events real after all and gave him his own spinoff.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: According to Garry Marshall, "Richie Almost Dies" was written for this reason. He explained that he was contacted by counselors working with abused children who watched the show. These kids refused to cry and kept their emotions under wraps, so Marshall wanted to have Fonzie go through an emotional breakdown in order to show these kids that it was okay to cry.

* SeasonalRot: It started out as a very cool, low-key show, then became the ideal version of a standard sitcom with a StudioAudience. It'd started getting worse (the Trope-Named Shark-Jump) even before Richie left, but only got worse after that. Fonzie got a temporary full-time girlfriend for one season, and things got increasingly worse with gimmicks and nonsense until a thankfully fantastic final episode.
