* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Some themes over the course of the series clearly went beyond the usual parameters of a pre-teen show, like alcoholism, prostitution, rape, starvation, bulimia, or the clash between different political systems like democracy, dictatorships and anarchy. It took almost a season for parents to complain about the series not being suitable when it started running on ABC3 in Australia, apparently living in a world without adult along with underage sex and teenage pregnancy didn't tip them off. For those wondering the scene that did was [[spoiler: [[RapeAsDrama Top Hat attempting to rape Zandra]] which is the second instance of attempted rape for the record (the first being Lex attempting to rape Zandra; he later MARRIED her.]]

* NoCommunitiesWereHarmed: despite the fact that the producers ''tried'' to pull out all the stops to do the whole CanadaDoesNotExist thing, the obvious New Zealand accents, the vague similarity of the City to real-life Wellington, and the fact that every time they go outside the City, there's invariably an establishing shot of wildlife which... well, clearly isn't British, kind of lets it down somewhat. Also, the tribe which kidnaps Dal and Trudy and attempts to sell them into slavery, has a tent which clearly identifies it as belonging to some community group from Upper Hutt, a satellite city of Wellington.

* CompleteMonster: Top Hat threatened KC with being burnt, tried to rape Zandra and finally set the mall on fire, with the mall rats left inside. Oh and this was in the space of two episodes.

* HeartwarmingMoments: Ryan giving Ebony his $10,000 savings (all his money in the world) in order to save Deel from slavery in S1e28, especially considering that she laughed and burnt it in his face. For someone who hadn't really interacted with Deel beforehand it really seems like a crowning moment of friendship on his behalf. Infact, the riot that breaks out at the 'festival' (this troper can't remember what it was specifically called) breaks into the tearjerker category considering, after all they had been through over the past 28 episodes, The Mallrats are willing to fight to the end for each other, in order to make sure that they're all safe.

** It was also of course popular in Britain (after all, they helped fund it, so it had better be), where it aired as part of Channel 5's Sunday morning "Milkshake" programmes for kids/teens/young adults.
