* DesignatedVillain: Logan, depending on the episode. All the crap he gets is often well-deserved LaserGuidedKarma, but sometimes he seems just victim of DisproportionateRetribution.
** The most prominent example, is the second half of "Anger Management," where, after being able to stay out of anger management classes if he controls his temper, Zoey decides that he's not weaseling out of it, and decides to intentionally try to invoke anger. Two such instances involve Zoey tying balloons to Logan's science project, sending it flying away, and her, Dustin, and James throwing a paint bomb into his dorm. When he finally yells at them for the latter, that gets him sent back to Anger Management. [[InformedWrongness Apparently it's not okay to yell at somebody because they are deliberately trying to push your buttons, by ruining your grade, and destroying your property.]]

* FoeYay: Logan has this with all the females in the series, but its most obvious and biggest case is with both Dana and Zoey.
** Also with Lola, to a certain extent.

Zoey. Also with Lola, to a certain extent.



** It proves their theory because the guys were trying to argue that it's biology or natural or something that when a girl is around they just naturally act different, as though it was against their will or something. So if it really was biology then regardless of them knowing Lola was a girl, they wouldn't have been able to naturally act like themselves.
*** Actually, it makes some sense. People tend to forget that humans have instincts. It '''could''' have been taken that guys can naturally act differently around someone they '''know''' is a girl. But the episode seemed to treat the issue as if they were claiming guys were psychic and knew that sort of thing, somehow. Everyone involved was holding the IdiotBall there.

*** FridgeBrilliance: That means they're right on schedule to be [[PopularityPolynomial back in style 20 years after the airdate]].



* StrangledByTheRedString: Logan and Quinn are an example that proves this trope [[TropesAreNotBad does not make a couple bad]]. The two have little interaction for the first 3 and a half seasons, and the interaction they do have isn't friendly, and that does ''not'' mean BelligerentSexualTension. It just means unfriendly. Then midway through the final season, her boyfriend, Mark, leaves her for another girl. While she's sulking, Logan happens to be riding by and sees her looking sad and comes to talk to her. While she initially resists his attempts to cheer her up and even asks why he's doing so, he showers her with compliments and then puts [[MegaNekko her glasses back on her]] and says, "There's Quinn." before they share their FirstKiss. Then in the episodes after this they are all over each other; making out very frequently, being intimate, slow dancing. However, these two are actually very good together, give off a great OppositesAttract vibe, and have a lot of chemistry to the point where a viewer might wonder why the writers didn't start building them up earlier, especially since Quinn's former "boyfriend", Mark, is a total DesignatedLoveInterest. He's an emotionless FlatCharacter, only appears in a handful of episodes, and in those few episodes, the two have no chemistry when together.
** This one is also helped by the fact that even though the relationship has no buildup, Quinn and Logan both [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] how weird it is that they are together. They even admit to each other that they are embarrassed to be dating and hide it from the other characters and when they tell Michael about their relationship, he thinks they're joking.
*** There ''was'' the whole free throw subplot in "Chase's Girlfriend". They had some nice SlapSlapKiss chemistry there. Even though they didn't kiss, most viewers wouldn't have been surprised if they had.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Talking about what's above in the DesignatedVillain section, it can be very hard to be on Zoey and her friends' side when they actively mess with Logan to get him sent back to Anger Management. Their excuse for not wanting him to "weasel out of it" doesn't necessarily justify their actions in the episode. This is made even by Logan's supervising still sending him back even though he's aware of what Zoey and the others did.

** Zoey Brooks is hated for being considered too boring, barely having to work hard at managing two businesses over the course of the show, so it's no surprise that she's on practically every sports team and is the object of every boy's affection.

** In the Episode "Time Capsule," the teacher says that in 20 years people will be laughing at their clothes. Lola says that their clothes will always be cute- and although their clothes were in style back then, now they are completely out of style.

* PuritySue: Zoey. Her life is so perfect it's ridiculous - she is insanely popular, is usually the leader of whatever project the other kids are making, is kind, pretty, smart, strong, weak (yes, at the same time), a great athlete, nearly every male character of her age have some kind of attraction for her, makes friends in the drop of a hat, solves everybody's problems...
** It's a grave offense of the highest order to disagree with her.
