* CelebrityVoiceActor: As Margo in WesternAnimation/DespicableMe. The only real difference is in how sarcastic the character is, it's pretty close to how Megan would speak if they'd kept her character going until her late teenage years.
* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: You ''will'' encounter articles or comments that state "Miranda Cosgrove as iCarly" ''numerous times''.
* IdenticalStranger:
** Sooyoung from K Pop band Music/GirlsGeneration.
** Miranda also shared a similarity with voice actress and singer Creator/MegumiNakajima, that also had similarity in their voices both speaking and singing.
** [[Wrestling/ChickBusters AJ Lee]] had darker hair in 2010/11, and it caused her to be mistaken for Miranda, to the point AJ changed [[https://twitter.com/WWEAJLee/status/81607527921491968 her twitter picture and profile to stop it happening.]]
* IronyAsSheIsCast: Summer had a HollywoodToneDeaf singing voice, while Carly lacked skill in drawing and playing the guitar. Miranda is quite proficient in all three talents.
* PlayingAgainstType: Her guest role in ''Series/TheGoodWife'' and a cameo in the music video ''Our Deal'' as a beaten up gangster.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Played straight and averted:
** Averted for iCarly co-star Creator/NathanKress, even if she said she compares other guys to him.
** Not averted for Nat Wolff of Series/TheNakedBrothersBand as they dated for two to three years when they were in their early teens.
** James Maslow of Series/BigTimeRush and Miranda have a lot of chemistry in the two episodes they have made involving each other (one on iCarly, one on Big Time Rush).
* SimilarlyNamedWorks: Her debut album ''Sparks Fly'' is not to be confused with Music/TaylorSwift's single; its title is taken from the first two words of Miranda's single ''Kissin' U''. To further the confusion, both girls [[NamesTheSame even share the name Taylor]] (Miranda's middle name) while both the album and the single contain IntercourseWithYou.
