* AcceptableTargets: Thor, a grossly-stereotypical fat character, is treated as mock-worthy. Pretty much [[AdultsAreUseless all adults are also laughed at]].
* {{Anvilicious}}: At times, especially [[VerySpecialEpisode the episode where Oliver's diabetes is revealed]].
** Having Wrestling/JohnCena extol the virtues of reading as he beats the crap out of Jackson is pretty darn close to a ''literal'' anvil drop.
** [[VerySpecialEpisode Jesse's return episode]]. The message was certainly in the right place, but for the part of the audience that has already reached the state of mental maturity where its something that should already be subconsciously understood, the episode may come off as insincere, as well as frustrating when considering the [[DerailingLoveInterests episode before it]].
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The ''entire town'' from the movie. Are they supportive of Miley keeping her lives separate? Or completely uncaring about her baring her soul and finally being honest with herself as they'd rather just have the teen starlet?
* BizarroEpisode: The episode "Kiss It All Goodbye", where Miley is suddenly hated and accused of being a liar, was highly implausible given Hannah's universal popularity [[spoiler:and the initial warm reception to her revelation of the secret.]]
* CreatorsPet: After being a side character during the first season, Rico gained intelligence, money, and sudden character importance that just came from nowhere.
* DesignatedVillain: Mr. Bradley in the movie is treated as a villain just because he wants to build a mall. [[HarmlessVillain He doesn't even do anything villainous]]. The only passibly mean thing he does is taunt the town people they won't be able to stop him building that mall. Which is StupidEvil, because those people are his potential customers. Miley actually thinks the mall development is a good idea at first before being told down by her grandmother.
** It might be more about the idea of building a mall (a symbol of ConspicuousConsumption and urbanity) in the vicinity of Crawley Corners, a simple, folksy, rural community detached from the material world and big-city values that's pointed out to be a threat to Hannah's hometown and its values. Miley Stewart is, after all, being sent there by her father to remember her roots and relearn the values, morals and humility she was raised with, which the Hollywood celebrity life seems to have robbed her of.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: EmilyOsment.
** Mikayla [[OneNameOnly doesn't even have a last name]] but is still incredibly popular despite on being in [[OneSceneWonder two episodes]]. Of course being played by SelenaGomez doesn't hurt.
* FanPreferredCouple: Miley/Lilly aka Liley is much more popular than Loliver or any of Miley's pairings.
* FoeYay: Miley experiences this with Jake at first before their relationship upgrade and Hannah has a ton with Mikayla.
* HilariousInHindsight: Mikayla played by SelenaGomez is actually lip-synching her song. Though the fact that Selena's voice sounds better than the one on the song should be a giveaway.
** Miley originally auditioned for Lilly, who is blonde and skateboards. Fast-forward to 2012 and [[http://www.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article1144433.ece/ALTERNATES/s615b/Miley+Cyrus+and+her+boyfriend+Liam+Hemsworth+spent+a+warm+Sunday+skateboarding+in+Los+Angeles this pic.]]
** In "She's a Super Sneak", Miley is very excited about meeting [[TwoAndAHalfMen Ashton Kutcher]].
*** Also Angus T. Jones and Jon Cryer both guest-starred.
*** Become uncomfortable when Emily Osment guest-starred in which she [[BrotherSisterIncest makes out with Jake]]
** Compare Miley's "punk rock Hannah" outfit in ""Yet Another Side Of Me" with her more recent stage outfits and onstage '80's pop-punk medleys, or for that matter, her performance covering "Rebel Yell" by BillyIdol in VH-1 Divas Live 2012 (especially [[ImportantHaircut with the punkier, shorter, spikier new "pixie-cut" hairstyle she started earlier that year]]).
** The season 2 premiere showed Jackson meeting a new student named Thor. Miley Cyrus was up until the summer of 2013 currently engaged to Liam Hemsworth, who's brothers with Film/{{Thor}} himself, ChrisHemsworth.
** Miley retweeted this [[https://vine.co/v/h52gHhuj3pz humorous Vine video]] to former castmate Jason Earles in late September 2013 (not created by her) following her notorious MTV Video Music Awards appearance earlier that month, involving Jackson and a foam finger. (slightly NSFW). Also counts with Lilly's remark about Miley Stewart performing in her underwear, as mentioned below.
*** Similarly, [[http://cheezburger.com/7983156224#comments this]].
** Miley's Missi character in ''TwoAndAHalfMen'', a talkative, free-spirited young adult with a [[DeepSouth overexaggerated, strong Southern accent]], isn't very far different from her EvilTwin "Cousin Luann" character in season 1's "Torn Between Two Hannahs".
** Moises Arias and Jason Earles as boss and employee. The latter would have a similar, but inverted, relationship with the former's brother in a [[Series/KickinIt future Disney show.]]
* HoYay: Rico and Jackson. Especially later on in the series. Jackson even (almost) accidentally kissed Rico!
* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Miley/Hannah has been paired with just about everyone by the fandom, including herself. (ex: [[PortmanteauCoupleName Jiley]], [[LesYay Liley]], [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend Moliver]], [[BrotherSisterIncest Jacksannah]], [[FoeYay Mikiley]] and many, many more).
* LesYay: Several items can be interpreted as examples of Miley and Lilly's feelings for one another being more than platonic:
** Lilly stated upon one occasion that seeing Miley perform in her underwear would be quite a show.
** As per the StupidSexyFlanders entry below, Lilly once said she date Miley in a mustache.
** In the Season 3 finale, Miley's primary reason for staying in California was she didn't want to leave Lilly. Lilly seemed utterly devastated when she thought both of her best friends are leaving, yet seems only mildly upset when she learns that Miley is staying, but Oliver is still leaving.
** Mikayla also seemed very interested in Miley and her teasing of Hannah could be signs of a crush.
** One could argue that the finale is one big Femslash story with Jesse and Oliver only appearing to remi...try to convince people that the girls are straight.
* UncannyValley: Two little instances. One is during an episode where Jackson is battling a candy addiction, where in the ending he's spoken to in a seductive voice by a chocolate bunny. The second is when Jackson procures a ventriloquist doll, who comes alive at the end.
* RelationshipSue: In season 4 Jesse suddenly goes from [[InformedFlaw "bad boy"]] to "the perfect boyfriend".
* SpecialEffectFailure: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HUIubJmeFI This]]".
* StrangledByTheRedString: Lilly and Oliver have been friends for years. They've seen the best and worst of each other, the best and worst of times, and have been there for each other through all of it. Let's not forget that they have [[BirdsOfAFeather numerous common interests.]] Do the writers use any of these perfectly legitimate story elements as a basis for their RelationshipUpgrade? Please, this is the Disney Channel! Instead, we get some contrived story about how her head fit into his neck and how she smelled like apples. And they go from being good friends to [[SickeninglySweethearts all PDA all the time.]] Even Miley gets sick of the RomanticPlotTumor.
** The decision was actually more curious because it seemed like there was a lot of subtext between Miley and Oliver up until the episode. Also consider that [[FanPreferredCouple Moliver]] was more popular than [[OfficialCouple Jiley]] and you'll wonder what the writers were thinking.
* TearJerker: The finale. 51:18 of [[HeartwarmingMoments moments that mix between touching]] and striking hard.
* TheWoobie: Jackson counts. Despite his father being rich, he is reduced to a demeaning job for Rico, who tortures and humiliates him at every turn. Robbie spoils Miley shamelessly even as he castigates Jackson for the smallest offense. Miley is [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist a complete brat to him, firing off insults every chance she gets]], meaning almost every time they're in the same room. In one episode where he becomes amnesiac, Miley tricks him into becoming her slave. In another episode, she completely humiliates him at a party for supposedly spreading a rumor about her, despite having no actual proof.[[note]] This is especially cruel considering how she refused to humiliate other people in previous instances -- such as Amber, who would have deserved it, and complete strangers like The Rock, because he was a celebrity.[[/note]] Even Uncle Earl, usually the ButtMonkey himself, said Jackson was an embarrassment to the family for the way he was dressed, when he was only wearing a costume to help Miley.
