** Despite being the main character, Alex is this for many episodes, not that she does not indulge in bad behavior. The girl cannot breath without being treated like she is the Anti-Christ. Some of the most infamous examples include "Alex's Logo", where Alex is enchanted into speaking what is on her mind, and is punished for it, or "Re-Test", where Alex is entirely blamed for Aunt Megan's actions, instead of Aunt Megan. This gets especially bad during the finale when [[spoiler:Alex convinces Justin and Max to give up their powers in order to save Harper and Zeke. After losing their powers, Justin and Max become extremely abusive towards Alex, and are portrayed in the right for doing so. The fact that they were willing to let people die is never acknowledged.]] Harper calls everyone out on this in the reunion special, saying they should love Alex for who she is and not constantly expect her to change.

* HarsherInHindsight: After Ian Abercrombie's death, Professor Crumbs [[spoiler:retiring the Headmaster of [=WizTech=] position to Justin seems a little bit more difficult to watch.]]

* NightmareFuel:
** A 2198-year old creepy woman lurking around in the woods. Not to mention she's pretty much stalking her ex-boyfriend, watching him from the shadows.
** Alex's utterly ''morbid'' 'Pancake Monster' voice... -shudder-
** For some children, the vampire Juliet turning into a giant bat or the werewolf Mason growling and howling at the moon is this.
** One of Juliet's early episodes made it clear that she normally looks like a rotted corpse who needs to drink blood to regenerate herself.
** [[spoiler:Stevie getting [[FateWorseThanDeath turned to ice]] and [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath shattered]].]]

* ShipSinking: Whether the creators have been [[ExecutiveMeddling asked to do this]] or they've just done it because they are a little scared by the size of the Jalex fandom, Justin/Alex seems to be {{Jossed}}, especially in the 3rd and 4th seasons. With the exception of two or three tender moments, Season 4 is almost void of Alex/Justin scenes, compared to the first and the second season, which was almost literally ''every'' episode.

* CrossoverShip: Alex/[[Series/ICarly Sam Puckett]], Alex/[[SonnyWithAChance Sonny Monroe]] , Alex/[[TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Zack Martin]]. The latter is actually plausible since the two characters have met in-canon.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The series has surprisingly a lot of [[BlackComedy dark,]] [[ComedicSociopathy mean-spirited]] jokes for a Disney sitcom. From Max telling a joke in the most inappropriate times to [[LiterallyShatteredLives Stevie's death]]...all PlayedForLaughs. It also doesn't help it when Alex isn't exactly a [[AntiRoleModel good role model]] for the young viewers thanks to her attitude and behavior.
