* [[WhyDoesEveryoneThinkImDeadpool]] Definitely occurs in-universe, but since one may not think Robbie looks like Samberg, that's why it's on this page.

** Cat refuses to sing the "booty" lyric (which is rather tame) of a song because it is "dirty". When she became a full-blown singer a few years later, ArianaGrande is now a walking ClusterFBomb.

** Jade, like Sam, Megan and Zoey, has split the fans between those who like her and those who hate her. While her CreatorsPet status is a ''lot'' harder to see then with, say, Sam, it is still hard to ignore once first noticed.

* CreatorsPet: It's Dan- this type of character is all too common in his shows. Jade and Tori both have elements of this- Tori more so as the show is a vehicle for VictoriaJustice. There is a ''huge'' debate amongst fans as to who is worse. This commonly ends with Jade being declared the Creator's Pet, but even her haters will admit that she's far more tolerable than Sam or Megan (With many male fans simply pointing out Jade rarely, if ever, invokes the DoubleStandard).



** To some fans, [[{{CreatorsPet}} Tori]] herself, who suffers from CharacterShilling, and effortlessly succeeding at everything she attempts, despite not being noticeably more talented than anyone else, and a lot more boring, than the other, more complex characters. There are frequent suggestions on forums that the show would be much better if it focused on the likes of [[{{EnsembleDarkHorse}} Cat]] and [[{{JerkWithAHeartOfGold}} Jade]].

** Many were surprised by the {{ContinuityNod}}'s, previous episode references and main characters other than Tori having their slap updates displayed that were conspicuous in "Robbie Sells Rex", with some thinking the show was suddenly going to become more cohesive episode-to-episode and put the spotlight on more of it's supporting characters. The episodes that followed, however, didn't follow suit. Either they didn't have the chance to put in these newly discovered tactics before the show's cancellation, or this episode just proved to be a strange anamoly.

** If compare Victorious to [[DisneyChannel its]] rival HannahMontana in terms of ratings and music sales, this show is so....mediocre. Without its iCarly lead-in, the show only got around 3 to 4 million viewers, even the one-hour specials only got around 5 million viewers. Moreover, the show soundtracks barely even dented the billboard charts!

* BaseBreaker: The entire episode "Prom Wrecker," mostly because of the debate over who caused the entire conflict.
** AlternativeCharacterInterpretation comes into play here, too: Was Tori a bitch for not trying to reschedule the prome, which ended up being on the same night as Jade's play, or was this a little payback for Jade's bitchiness? Was Jade's revenge justified because Tori did not reschedule? Was it Sikowitz's fault for not warning Tori about the schedule conflict? Did anybody cross the MoralEventHorizon here, and was the episode itself a CrowningMomentOfAwesome?
** ''Tori and Jade's Playdate''. A terrific and daring episode subverting common gender and sexuality tropes, another example why Jade and Tori would make an awesome canon pairing (either as Best Friends or Romantically) and a nice overall girl-power message? Or was it just shameless [[PanderingToTheBase pandering to the Jade/Tori shippers]] and, since nothing eventually became canonized between them, a rather nasty bit of Queerbaiting? Did it [[MoralGuardians stretch the limits too far of what could be shown on a "kids" show]]? Did Sikowitz cross a MoralEventHorizon "forcing" Jade and Tori to go on a date? Was the whole thing a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, or an episode full of problematic elements, especially concerning LGBT representation (or lack therof) as well as Sikowitz's possible ethical and moral red flags?

BaseBreakingCharacter:



** ''Brain Squeezers'' receives plenty of hate for its gratuitous use of violence on the entire cast. People argue that it was meant to be comedic with all the violence, but others say that the violence is overused for a ''children's'' show.
** Jade and Tori's relationship, my gawd. Whether some think it's just a cute arc about two very different girls learning to accept their differences and become friends; it's antagonism is played too far to it's extremes; their constant conflict is [[ArcFatigue siphoning away too much screen time from other characters and storylines]]; either Jade or Tori [[DracoInLeatherPants is the hero]] [[RonTheDeathEater or the supreme evil Jerkass]]; or, that it's one of the sweetest [[HideYourLesbians secret romantic arcs on television]]- the conversation will always be heated and rarely end nicely (especially if the latter interpretation is involved).

* TakeThatScrappy: ''The Bad Roommate'' was one big HumiliationConga for Jade, [[BaseBreaker and to many]], it was satisfying to see Jade finally get [[KarmaHoudini comeuppance for her actions]].

* NamesTheSame: Sikowitz is somehow not a guard in [[Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack Linchfield Penitentiary]]. Or female.

** Beck increasingly, obviously to devoted Jade/Tori shippers for often exaggerated DieForOurShip reasons but also to other viewers who just find him [[FlatCharacter extremely dull and robotic]], and individually bringing little to the overall group dynamic beyond token appeal for shipping and being the DesignatedLoveInterest. That's lead to a debate whether he's simply a [[SatelliteCharacter Nice Guy]] {{Scrappy}} who's main problem is being too dependent on other characters for relevance, or when looking at his more passive-agressive and [[TheCasanova Casanova]] tendancies, if he's a closet {{Jerkass}}. His actions in "Tori Goes Platinum" drew the ire of many previous fans and even caused a bit of a BrokenBase inside the Beck/Jade Ship, a pairing for which he often gets disproportionate scolding for his percieved mis-steps in comparison to [[FanDarling Jade]].
