** The show is currently in the midst of pushing the lesson of the partiking in a woman's nude photo's leaked online without their permission makes the viewer just as despicable as the poster. A valid lesson, only problem, said victim is [[AlphaBitch Hillary]], who with her trashy gossip television show has ruined many of Genoa City's pillars reputations, and often resorting to blackmail to keep said information from airing. The poster of her photo Jordan, for that matter, does so in retaliation, after Hillary leaks his past as a reformed Conman purely out spite, damaging Chelsea's, another reformed con turned respected buisnesswoman, reputation as collateral. So while the message of leaking nude photos being bad is usually true, in this case it feels more like the lesson is [[BrokenAesop paybacks a bitch.]]

* 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 in the '''''38 years''''' she has been with the show, she has '''''one''''' nomination to her name.

* 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.

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.

* 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?
