* HoYay: There was an episode where a Eric became friends with a guy called Buddy (played by Creator/JosephGordonLevitt). There was a montage of them hanging out to a Best Friends song, only for it to turn out that Eric's friend was gay. At the end of the episode, Red and Bob had a Best Friends montage.

* EnsembleDarkHorse:

** Sad sack Roy Keene (played by Jim Gaffigan) only appeared occasionally but ended up very popular.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Donna. For some fans, she's the quirky girl-next-door who's also a feminist and independent. Others see her as vindictive and manipulative, especially in her relationship with Eric. During their relationship, she'd get mad at Eric for things that weren't his fault, Donna also made Eric give her money every time he referenced one of his interests and would use feminism and sex to win arguments. When she ditched Eric for HOURS to hang out with Ted Nugent, Donna saw no problem with what she had done. Eric brought the situation to his parents, and Kitty said she would have apologized to Red if she were to do that to him. When Eric says this to Donna, she says that that's only because Red and Kitty are married. When Donna and Eric do break up (for the first time) it's because Donna's worried about being "chained down" to Eric and Point Place. Eric had only given her a promise ring and had never made any indication of undermining her future or interests, only asking if they were together in the hypothetical futures she brought up. But when they are broken up, Donna constantly insults him, messes up his chances of moving on, and leads him on with possibilities of them getting back together.

* ReplacementScrappy: Poor Randy. After Eric left for Africa Randy was added in as a replacement to round out the cast. Was he given his own personality and be his own character? ''Nope!'' Randy was added in as a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute to Eric despite being pretty much the opposite in looks (tall and handsome with long blonde hair) and even dated Donna after she and Eric broke up off-screen. When Kelso left, did the writers get a new character to replace him? ''Nope!'' Someone decided that Randy had to play both the nerd and the dumbass, resulting in an inconsistent and unfunny character who was a dumb nerd but also a socially awkward player but also and an unfunny clown who constantly bounces between roles and never really works with any of them. The writers caught on and barely shown him in the series finale.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Eric and Donna pressuring Jackie and Hyde to admit their relationship to Kelso- and shaming them for doing it in the first place and keeping it a secret- comes off as rather meddlesome and hypocritical to many fans, considering the two of them didn't seem to have any trouble keeping Kelso's ''actual affair with Laurie'' a secret from Jackie for months. For Kelso himself, the idea that Jackie really owes him anything (after years of dealing with his cheating, passive aggressively insulting her, pestering her for sex, and ditching her with no explanation) has become a point of contention among fans, especially in recent years.

** Kelso, being TheDitz, is naturally a fountain of this.
*** One of the group's favorite stories is of the time Kelso tried to do the "burning bag of dog poop" prank on someone, but lit the bag prematurely and then stomped it out himself. A frustrated Kelso counters "THE BAG WAS ON FIRE!"
