* BigNameFan: fellow youtubers Tay Zonday , Shane Dawson and iJustine ''love'' Fred. Zonday even described the videos as comic genius in an episode of "Youtubers React".
* CreatorBacklash: In [[http://variety.com/2012/tv/news/lucas-cruikshank-moving-beyond-fred-figglehorn-1118058833/ an article in Variety]], Cruikshank said that he ended production on Fred because he wanted to do something else and not be forever typecast as Fred. (However, given the absolute failure of his post-Fred work, it seems this isn't working so farů)
* DawsonCasting: ''Self-inflicted''--Lucas Cruikshank was 14 when he created 6-year-old Fred.
** Averted in {{the movie}}s with Fred, as Lucas was 16 when filiming took place and Fred was depicted as a 15 year old there. However, it's played straight with the ages of Music/JennetteMcCurdy (17), Jake Weary (19) and Music/PixieLott (18) during filming. Fred is the only person in the middle school he goes to that actually looks like he could reasonably be a middle schooler.
*** Possibly inverted with Wrestling/JohnCena as Fred's imaginary dad, unless he was around 18 when Fred was conceived (and that's only if Fred's dad is the same age as Cena, any younger [[UnfortunateImplications then...]])
* HeyItsThatGuy: You probably know Kevin's mom as Flo from Progressive.
** And Fred's mom is also [[Film/{{Holes}} Stanley Yelnats's mom]] and [[Film/ForrestGump Forrest Gump's school bus driver.]]
* MissingEpisode: While still accessible, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPWYRhGxeCE Fred Fights Over the Computer]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfzduSYwoIU Fred Throws a Party!]]'' have since been set to unlisted, making them harder to find.
** Also the infamous "herpes episode" which was taken down the day it was uploaded, as demanded by Lucas's talent manager at the time.
* TheOtherDarrin: Creator/{{Jennette McCurdy}} does not reprise her role as Bertha for ''Night of the Living Fred'' or ''[[http://www.nick.com/shows/fred Fred: The Show]]''. Instead, we get Creator/DaniellaMonet.
* RecycledScript: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfzduSYwoIU Fred Throws a Party!]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slhjZOM8lR0 Fred Throws a Party]]'' have the same premise and even [[SimilarlyNamedWorks the same title]].
* SimilarlyNamedWorks:
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfzduSYwoIU Fred Throws a Party!]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slhjZOM8lR0 Fred Throws a Party]]''.
** In an unfortunate coincidence, the first movie has the exact same name as the world's only pro-Fred Phelps documentary.
* TypeCasting: Thanks to this show, you'd probably see every character Lucas Cruikshank plays from now on as Fred. A poignant example would be MarvinMarvin, where Marvin basically ''is'' Fred.
