* MisaimedFandom: In the ClipShow spoofing episode, one of the "flashbacks" was of the Powerpuff Girls being bimboish teenagers who have given up crime fighting to hang out at the mall and flirt with the also teenaged Rowdyruff Boys. The whole sequence is rumored to have been a [[TakeThat parody of extremely bad PPG fanfiction]]. A great deal of fans [[{{Irony}} completely]] [[PoesLaw missed the point]] however, and the sequence ironically ended up inspiring even more fanfiction with similar plots.

* NarmCharm:
** Bubbles's [[InelegantBlubbering bawling]] in "All Chalked Up" may sound over-the-top, but the moment building up to it plus the sad music in the background whilst Bubbles is sobbing still makes it a TearJerker.
** In "Cover Up", Buttercup's delivery of her LittleNo might be pretty darn funny, but the horrified yet accepting look on her face that she's about to get pummeled by the monster, doubled by Buttercup's [[ButtMonkey relentless bad luck]] before that scene is nonetheless emotionally grueling.

** Ms Bellum, since she has to deal with the Mayor's idiocy a lot.

** The [[Music/{{Prince{{ "When Doves Cry"]] reference in "City Of Frownsville" is a lot less funny now that Prince is dead as of 2016.

** Robin in "Super Friends" after the trio ditch her repeatedly to do superhero work, especially if you've been abandoned by your friends in real life. Then her next friend only uses her and talks her into committing a crime, and turns her in.

** "Monkey See, Doggie Two" seems to deliberately invoke this trope, as Mojo tries his scam to transform the whole world into dogs yet again, with the exception of the Powerpuff Girls, even though the change had left them at a clear disadvantage as well. Mojo's entire plot was to ensure that the girls could not defeat him the same way they did the last time they were dogs, by arming himself with a shield to prevent them from biting him. It completely flies past him that now he simply opened himself up to one of their usual beatdowns since they're still themselves, and the girls lampshade this idiocy by doing ''exactly'' that.

** Both episodes to feature the Dynamo ride on this:
*** In "Uh Oh Dynamo" the entire plot is kicked off by the Professor randomly freaking out about the safety of the girls after just a few punches from the mutant fish creature, even though they've easily faced worse foes before. He then assembles the massive robot Dynamo for the girls to use when the monster returns yet again, threatening to ground them if they refuse. They end up doing a lot more harm than good, destroying the entire city before they've defeated the monster.
*** "Live and Let Dynamo" takes it even further, where we find out that the Professor didn't destroy the Dynamo after its first rampage, a revelation that leaves the girls just as baffled. Even more egregious however is that it is the ''Mayor'' who somehow got into Dynamo, activated it, and caused it to go out of control yet again. While the Mayor is known for his stupidity, absolutely no explanation is offered for why he was anywhere near the robot, the same robot that ''he himself'' ordered the girls not to use again.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: "Knock It Off" was a parody of misrepresenting the Powerpuff Girls and using them for merchandise. In 2016, many would argue [[ThePowerpuffGirls2016 the reboot]] to resemble something Dick Hardly would come up with.

** "City Of Frownsville" is 11 minutes of the entirety of Townsville bawling. It's as grating on the ears as it sounds, if not more.

** The first episode Him was introduced, he was presented as a hellish almighty powerful being so fearsome we can't even say his name, and was pretty solid NightmareFuel. By the last time we see him in the show he turned into just as much of a feeble joke as any other villain.
