* AccidentalInnuendo: The song "Too Cool" opens with the lyrics "I'm too cool for my dress."
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Some have speculated that the reason that Tess left Camp Rock in the sequel was because she was in love with Mitchie and didn't want to have to see her with Shane every day.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The songs "What It Takes" and "Hasta la Vista" in the first film. Both songs are completely irrelevant, are sung by minor characters, and are never mentioned again afterward. They are very obviously just there to pad the movie.
* CanonSue: Mitchie as of the second movie.
-->'''Sander''': For you Mitchie, anything!
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome:
** "Our Time Is Here" from the 1st movie's DVD.
** The duet, "Wouldn't Change a Thing".
** "Heart and Soul" by TheJonasBrothers. Love or hate the movie, this song was pretty cool.
** "Play My Music", definitely.
** When Peggy sings "Here I Am".
* CriticalResearchFailure:
** For some reason, the camp is called "Camp '''Rock'''", and people go there to rock out, when they're obviously playing pop (and some techno and hybrid of both) music.
** Justified on two levels; first, [[FridgeLogic because of Brown's background as a rock star]], he would name his camp for music after the musical style he came up on - and because of the RuleOfCool. After all, how many kids would want go to 'Camp Pop?'
* DesignatedVillain: Tess in ''Camp Rock 2'' who gets excited about a famous record label ''once'' owner and is treated like a traitor from that point on despite [[spoiler: not leaving for Camp Star until they come back from the welcoming ceremony.]] There's also the fact that she was treated as Mitchie's shadow (Like all the other girls) but was the only one smart enough to leave.
** The entirety of Camp Star (except Luke) are villains because their camp director decided to build state of the art dorms and give them the best in performing arts tuition and managed to use marketing.
* EarWorm: All of the songs in these movies '''will''' get stuck in your head at sometime.
* {{Fanon}}: While never stated in the first movie, it was always assumed that Nate and Jason were Shane's brothers. In the sequel this was confirmed.
* FanonDiscontinuity: A lot of people like to pretend the sequel never happened.
* FoeYay: Tess with Mitchie, Caitlyn, and Luke.
** Mitchie and Luke.
* JerkassWoobie: Tess was undeniably bitchy in the first movie, but you have to feel bad for her when her Mom bails on her in the middle of her performance.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Many tropers saw ''Camp Rock 2'' because they heard [[KingdomHearts Meaghan Jette Martin and Alyson]] [[PhineasAndFerb Stoner]] were in it.
* LesYay: ''It's On'', in both the movie and the music video Tess and Caitlin are paired together while all the other girls are paired with boys.
* TheScrappy: Most fans hate Dana, mostly for reasons of DieForOurShip. Their argument is a terrible one because it's of a pairing of two characters that have never acknowledged each other's existence.
* {{Sequelitis}}: ''Camp Rock 2''. Even those who liked the first one don't care much for the second one.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: "Introducing Me" sounds suspiciously similar to Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours".
* StrangledByTheRedString:
** Seriously, there's absolutely no chemistry between Mitchie and Shane.
*** Some thought there was great chemistry between them in the first movie.
**** Not to mention the fact he instantly forgives her for lying since...she is a good singer?
** Curiously, actors Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas were an item IRL.
*** And that didn't end well.
** Nate and Dana.
*** Most fans hate this. Of course they argue that Nate should be with Caitlyn despite little to no [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight interaction between them]].
*** Nate and Caitlyn's personalities seem as if they would go well together, though...
* UnfortunateImplications: Lola, Barron, and Sander, 3 of the 4 black characters in the first movie, are always together. Then Lola leaves in between movies and they replace her with Peggy, the only other black girl. To top it off they make her a TokenMinorityCouple her with Barron.
