** Because of Ashley Tisdale's lovable LargeHam performance, Sharpay comes across as less of an arrogant bitch and more starstruck and neurotic. Her passion for theatre and her determination to be successful also suggests that Sharpay doesn't do the manipulative things she does out of malice - she just truly wants to be the best at everything (star in the musical, dating the most popular boy in school, etc.) She doesn't dislike the Wildcats in the second movie because of any reason other than "they'll steal my talent show!" Selfish, yes, but by the ending of each movie she's realized her mistakes.

Selfish, yes, but by the ending of each movie she's realized her mistakes. There's also the fact that Sharpay, who has been performing for far longer than Troy and Gabriella, is right to be suspicious of their skill and commitment to theater.

** In the sequel, Chad and a few other Wildcats come across as overly harsh sometimes when they're unhappy with Troy. See BrokenAesop.

* FanPreferredCouple: Although Troy/Gabriella is still the most popular pairing in the fandom, there are more people who also ships Troy with Sharpay than those who ship her with her canon eventual partner, Zeke.
** The "Star Dazzle" for most popular (sadly non canon) ship would probably go to Chad and Ryan who have a ''very'' dedicated following. On AO3 alone they have over 200 works wheras Troy and Gabriella have...44. Let that sink in.
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: The second film has several, the worst one being that hanging out with your high school friends is more important than your whole future. Troy is portrayed as the bad guy for missing a few ball games because he's trying to get a scholarship and earn money for college. He's redeemed when he throws away chances of impressing the College board so the other wildcats will be friends with him again.

** Ryan being dyslexic is brought up in at least 75% of fanfics where he has a lead role, most likely based on him being unable to read Go Drama Club in the first movie.

** Some people feel this way about Sharpay and Ryan, at least in the first movie. They have been doing all this musical extravaganza for most of their life and then in waltzes two people who have never actually sung seriously a day in their life and they easily got shooed in to get the parts. Although they can be pretty mean at times (especially Sharpay) you can at least understand why they would be pissed off.

* SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The games are pretty good, but only because of what gameplay they’re based on. The first two games on [[UsefulNotes/NintendoDS DS]] use the ''[[EliteBeatAgents Elite Beat Agents]]/[[OsuTatakaeOuendan Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan]]'' gameplay, while the third DS game uses ''[[GitarooMan Gitaroo Man’s]]'' gameplay. The console ''High School Musical 3 Dance!'' game also uses [[DanceDanceRevolution DDR]] gameplay on dance pads (On ''UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}'', it's Wii Remote and Nunchuk). While it's somewhat simplistic in terms of difficulty, it does serve as a decent rhythm game. Unfortunately, all the games use [[CoverVersion covers]], which is ironic since Disney develops the games and made the movies. The GameBoyAdvance game based on the first movie does have it's own merits too, despite being one half platformer, one half rhythm game.

*** In the same vein, Ryan being gay has been pretty much accepted as fact among fans, usually accompanied by a handwave that Kelsi is just a beard.

Added DiffLines:

** Technically the whole problem was that he was forgetting dates and leaving his friends standing in the dust despite there being enough time to tell them beforehand that something else came up. He never actually did say "Hey guys, I'm sorry but this is important" when there was still time for the others to change their own plans. He didn't acknowledge them in any way to the Red Hawks either even though Chad was ''right there'' so if one thinks about it, the aesop isn't all that family unfriendly at all. Thinking about the future is not bad as long as you don't forget about the present.
