Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedVillain: Carmen Mesta, for filing charges against Dru after she breaks into her apartment and trashes it and later physically assaults her, angry over Carmen's fling with her husband Neil. Despite Neil outright witnessing Dru's crazed behavior, somehow Carmen was the bad guy in the whole mess when she had every right to press charges and be concerned for her safety.

** Ironically the only year she was nominated was the same year Susan Lucci finally broke her loosing streak.

Added DiffLines:

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: With no help from the writers what so ever, Sharon Newman. The character remains a fan favorite through some of the most infuriating, {{Squick}} inducing and reviled plot-lines, all due to Sharon Case's amazing ability to act above them. So less ''Rescued'' and more ''Refuses to Sink Into the Scrappy Heap.''
* SuperCouple: Given it's a soap, quite a few but most famously Victor and Nikki's Pygmalion styled romance.

* AwardSnub: Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) once jokingly referred to herself as "the non-nominated Susan Lucci", citing that Susan Lucci has at least been nominated for multiple Emmys (19), whereas she has nary a nomination to her name.



* BrokenBase: Almost everything and everyone on this show. The only things that are not base breakers are the fact that ''The Young and the Restless'' is a soap opera that they watch and that random background puppet at Crisom Lights is creepy.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: This causes a lot of the broken bases. Every character gets one. Is Victor a {{Magnificent Bastard}}[=/=]{{Noble Demon}} without whom the show would be nowhere, or is he a VillainSue whom the show would better off not having? Is Jack completely justified in constantly trying to regain his family, or is he a loser trying to hold on to something he really should abandon? Even minor characters canít avoid this: Is Esther a really good friend to Katherine, her employer, or is Esther an annoying idiot, or both?

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: At least as of 2013, the characters have had a nasty habit of believing the worst in others.
** When Stitch was revealed to have [[spoiler:killed his father]], not even one character outside his family even bothered to consider other circumstances, vilifying him on the deed alone.
**When Sharon was believed to have [[spoiler: murdered several young adults]], only a small handful of people considered she had been framed, with everyone else insulting or suspecting her at every turn.
**When Avery was [[spoiler:attacked and ravaged in an alley]], she not only suspected Joe- she successfully convinced everyone else (including police chief Paul) of her stance with little proof. The only person who bailed Joe was the same who did for Sharon.
**And countless other examples.

Added DiffLines:

* DracoInLeatherPants: Quite a few of the most popular characters started out as villains, including Victor, Nina, Phyllis, Michael, Kevin and Chloe. They turned out to be popular with viewers so they were retooled by writers to be more likable, albeit still with an edge.
* DudeNotFunny: Tracy reacts this way when Jack called Brad, who froze to death, a "Bradsicle."
* MagnificentBastard: Victor Newman.
