* CounterpartComparison: The gang has some surprising parallels in the Literature/{{Animorphs}}- Eric is Jake (TheEveryman), Kelso is Marco ([[TooDumbToLive dumb]] [[ThePrankster jokester]]), Hyde is Tobias ([[AbusiveParents kid with a crappy home life]]), Fez is Ax ([[FunnyForeigner both of them are]] ''[[IncrediblyLamePun aliens]]''), and Rachel [[CompositeCharacter shares attributes of both Donna and Jackie]] (Donna's [[TheBigGuy general toughness and will to fight]], Jackie's [[GirlyBruiser beauty]]). (Kind of ironic, considering the ''Animorphs'' [[Series/{{Animorphs}} TV series]] also started in 1998.)

* ValuesDissonance: Ironically falls into this, in spite often invoking it for comedy. [[SlutShaming Sleeping around is depicted as one of the worst things people, particularly women, can possibly do.]]

*** Though in this case, they had invited Red and Kitty to a Key Party without telling them first.

* StrangledByTheRedString: Donna and Randy. Donna is noticeably attracted to Randy while she's still in a relationship with Eric. The fact that the writers also broke up the OfficialCouple (and having it be an off-screen Eric's fault, no less) just to get them together doesn't help.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** The episode parodying ''Series/CharliesAngels'', including the boys' giving their reason for watching: "the hot blonde with the big rack", happened to air in syndication the day Farrah Fawcett died.

* CluelessAesop: Sometimes it does [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped drop a few anvils that need to be said]], but most of the time, most of aesops come off as "[[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop women are just inherently better than men and men aren't allow to criticize their actions no matter how heinous they are.]]" As many actual feminist will tell you, not only is this the complete opposite of what actual feminism is, [[note]]that being both genders are to be treated as ''equals'', with nether one being portrayed as inherently better than the other[[/note]] but is both equally offensive to men ''and'' women. [[note]]Because it portrays women as needing special treatment for just being women.[[/note]]

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Donna. Some people like her and thinks she adds a lot of funny moments to the show, others think she's a {{Jerkass}} and a {{hypocrite}} who [[StrawFeminist uses feminism to get her way in an argument or some other aspect of her life]] when she has shown she's not above acting like a stereotypical woman if it benefits her somehow. The fact that she often overacts to some of the smaller things Eric has done and treats him like crap even when he really ''hasn't'' done anything wrong and never gets called out on it doesn't help.

* CanonSue: Randy to the nth degree. He had all of the best attributes of Kelso (ChickMagnet) and Eric (DeadpanSnarker) with none of their flaws, ''[[CreatorsPet Red adored him]]'', he hooked up with Donna, but she dumps him, and became the group's leader out of nowhere. He was like a really bad self-insert character.
** Donna arguably could be one. She's not only regarded as one of the smartest people in the show but the hottest, she's almost always seen as right even if she's wrong, her flaws are minimal compared to the other characters, and she never had the CharacterDevelopment that so many other characters received.

** Even though most people prefer it to [[TheScrappy Randy]], Eric and Donna's relationship over the series gets to this level at several points, to the point it seems like writers were [[RelationshipRevolvingDoor trying to think of any reason to break them up so they could get them back together again.]] The crowning example is when [[spoiler: them breaking up because Donna wouldn't accept Eric's promise ring, not wanting to be "trapped" in Point Place, listing several reasons because of it. Maybe this would have been understandable... had Donna not almost immediately hooked up with Kelso's brother, who's pretty much the ''living embodiment'' of everything she supposedly left Eric because.]] Let's just say it's some of those things that [[BaseBreaker caused Donna to be one of the more "diverse" characters in the cast...]]
