** Pizzazz is a grade A RichBitch however her backstory reveals that her mother [[ParentalAbandonment ran off]] when she was very young and her father was [[ParentalNeglect very distant]] to her growing up. Her flirtatious behavior towards men could stem from a lack of attention from her father growing up and her [[VitriolicBestBuds rocky friendship]] with The Misfits could stem from similar reasons. Maybe Pizzazz has a hard time expressing affection and showing her softer side. She berates them constantly but is shown to treat them like family. Her dismissive and angry reactions when Roxy and Stormer left could be due to her being worried about her {{Only Friend}}s abandoning her. Pizzaz could also be interpreted as having an InferioritySuperiorityComplex.

Added DiffLines:

** A lot of people view "The Bands Breakup" as a case of HideYourLesbians but it could also be seen as Stormer having a case of IncompatibleOrientation towards Kimber. Stormer has the most LesYay directed at Kimber and in "Bad Influence" Pizzazz sings about how naive Kimber is and how she'll break Stormer's heart. Alternatively, maybe Stormer and Kimber really just have a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship.

* {{Narm}}: A lot of the content in the series can be considered this, including the terrible animation, some of Jem's music videos which cross into TastesLikeDiabetes territory, Rio's tendency to throw temper tantrums concerning Jerrica and Jem, and the ''Alone Again'' episode.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork:
** Hasbro pulled the plug on the series in 1988, despite the fact that Jem was one of the most popular cartoons airing in syndication. The reason? Because of ''poor sales on the dolls''.
** The reruns airing on Discovery Family were stopped after the film bombed.

* FandomSpecificPlot: Putting one or more of the bands on VH-1's ''Behind the Music'' (a melodramatic "documentary" series depicting the backstage drama for various bands). these are played anywhere from totally straight to DeconstructiveParody.

** Either Rio or Riot (depending on who the writer prefers Jerrica with) finding out that Jerrica is Jem.
** The only Misfit with a backstory is Pizzazz. Naturally, fanfics go into depth about the others pasts.



** Jem, and usually the others bar Kimber for being AmbiguouslyBi, are {{Politically Incorrect Hero}}es when it comes to their views on gay people. This usually doesn't mean being outright anti-gay but instead they're awkward around the topic and subtly condensending about it. Part of the reason for this is due to DeliberateValuesDissonance concerning how views on lgbt people have changed since the 80s.

** Jerrica having [[LossOfIdentity deep identity issues]] comes up a lot in {{Deconstruction Fic}}s. Jem and Jerrica are two different people and Jerrica treats them as such, which causes a mixed bag such as the "[[TwoPersonLoveTriangle love triangle]]" between the women and Rio. Jerrica comes off as overworked and stressed while Jem has all the fun and travels around.

** Jem And The Holograms breaks up within six years of forming. Sometimes they just go their separate ways and other times Jem accidentally transforms back into Jerrica on stage.

** We're shown multiple times the characters hair colors are all natural but fanworks ignore it.

** Pizzazz. She's a SpoiledBrat but her background is pretty subpar, what with her mother abandoning her at a young age and her father being distant.
