* AlasPoorScrappy: After a roof collapses on her, Jessica Wallace (the resident [[TheBully highschool bully]]) only has moments to ask her boyfriend to tell her mother that she is sorry for being a disappointment before she dies from her injuries. The kicker: He had agreed to be her boyfriend just minutes before the accident occured.

* EthnicScrappy: The Lim family were introduced in an attempt at subverting MonochromeCasting, but thanks to their poor acting and out-of-character racist behaviour by other residents, their six week tenure is generally seen as an embarassment.

** One 2008 storyline had Zeke accidentally walking in on Bridget taking a shower and seeing her naked. It's a complete accident and Zeke is mortified, yet it is treated as a betrayal of his friendship with Bridget and his boyfriend Declan and he is forced to stand naked in the school corridor so everyone can see him as "punishment". (See AcceptableTargets.)



* TheScrappy: [[http://perfectblend.net/features/notsuch.htm As summarised here]], Jo Hartman, Lisa Elliot, Eddie Buckingham, Nick and Caitlin Atkins, Lauren Carpenter (arguably Rescued in her 2013 return under a new actress), the Lim family, Katya Kinski, and to a lesser extent the Hancock and Parker families (Stuart and Ned excepted).

* AcceptableTargets: Men and boys. Infidelity is at times condemned as a male weakness, whereas adulteresses are treated sympathetically. Dylan and Scott Timmins [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beating the crap]] out of [[NiceGuy Boyd]] for cheating on their sister, and [[DirtyCop Sergeant Steiger]]'s contemptuous dismissal of the case, are staged as a [[MomentOfAwesome moral victory]]. [[DoubleStandard On top of this]], Dylan's aim to avenge himself on a violent assailant is solemnly denounced by Sky as "stupid male pride." Teenage boys, notably bookish Zeke Kinski, are disdained as uncouth peasants for lacking the dutiful understanding to which their female peers are supposedly entitled. And then there's [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale Steph punching Paul, shouting in Boyd's face, Yashvi punching Ben in the groin]]...

* InformedWrongness: In an 80s storyline, Jane had been away for a while, so Paul and Gail hired a temp to cover for her. Paul was so impressed with the young man that he offered him a permanent job as his personal secretary, while Jane became Gail's on her return. Jane tactlessly tried to pull rank on the young man who argued, not unreasonably, that if anything, Paul's secretary would outrank Gail's. Jane proceeded to demand Paul fire him, giving him a "him or me" ultimatum. Apparently, Paul was wrong to say it would have to be Jane who went, even though she had demanded he fire a perfectly good secretary simply because she didn't get on with him, and even that was largely her fault. Paul ended up begging her to come back.

** [[http://www.neighboursepisodes.com/index.php?year=2017&episode=7573 The resolution]] to the Tanaka brothers' search for their father, who turns out to be Paul Robinson, thanks to a one-night-stand with Kim Taylor, a guest character from the first few months of the show. The explanation given contradicts the onscreen events from 1985 in numerous ways, suffice to say that there was ''nothing whatsoever'' to suggest Paul had even heard of Kim before she got involved with his brother, nor that Kim was pregnant before she ran away from home, or had dated anyone before Scott. Even ignoring the contradictions, the retcon now means that Paul has been guilty of having sex with a minor for the entire run of the show: in [[http://perfectblend.net/review/episodes/85/0003.htm Kim's first episode]], she was stated to be 15, and while it's possible this has been retconned as well, since Scott was seemingly aged up a year or two after his recasting, she's still stated to have been a high-schooler in Scott's year and it's pretty hard to believe Paul's claim that he didn't recognise her as such, especially given that the episode revealing all this uses flashbacks of 1985!Kim.
