* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The Talent Suckers appearing in a time machine and then disappearing in "Puffy B.C." It comes out of nowhere and has no bearing whatsoever on the episode's plot.
* BizarroEpisode: "Sound Off". ''Big time''.
* ClicheStorm: The amount of tropes played straight is a little overbearing at times.
* CoveredUp: The soundtrack features a cover of "Joining A Fan Club", originally by Puffy songwriter/producer Andy Sturmer's early-1990s band Jellyfish.
* CounterpartComparison: The show itself is often compared to the anime ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''. Both feature a duo of two different girls (a brightly-colored feminine one and a blue-haired PerkyGoth) who are VitriolicBestBuds notable InUniverse for working together (the duo are for being a rock band; the Anarchy sisters for being ghost-killing angels), a man of a different size who takes care of, works with and has sent them to do something at times for them, and a seemingly typical mindless pet--with them living in the same residence. There's also both of the shows also featuring a plot-relevant villain (two, in this case for Scanty and Kneesocks) who have been polite at the heroines. They also have uses of an art style and iconography from opposite sides (specifically, this show uses an {{Animesque}} style(--though, the manga iconography is slightly rare), while ''PSG'' has an art style looking like Animesque WesternAnimation ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''), and are also seemingly wacky. It helps that this show struck inspiration for the latter series.
* EarWorm:
** The background tunes will stick in your head for days on end.
** Also, the show's theme song itself. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfpBn3VqHLg Check for yourself]].
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Julie is very popular for a character who only appeared in one episode.
** The Talent Suckers become this as a result of becoming protagonists of two segments.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff:
** An Americanized show about two Japanese pop stars has a very popular Hispanic dub.
** Predictably, the show was more popular in Japan than America, to the point that Japan got the entire series on DVD while America [[NoExportForYou didn't]].
* GrowingTheBeard: By season 2, the animation is more fluid.
* HilariousInHindsight: Julie can do the voice impressions of [[WesternAnimation/DocMcStuffins Lambie]] and WesternAnimation/HenryHugglemonster.
* MemeticMutation:
** "American cartoons are terrible!"
** "Bye Bye Boo!" To the point where it became the name for a trophy/achievement of ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ''.
** [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/1350494-cute-little-fang Yumi's close up shot with her fang.]]
* {{Moe}}: Ami and Yumi are this. Atchan and Julie can also count.
* SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The Kaznapped and Genie and the Amp games are praised for creating original storylines.
* NightmareFuel: A live action segment featuring a flabby man in a loincloth dancing. The cartoon had some cringes too.
* SoOkayItsAverage: The show is mostly infamous because of its marketing campaign and coming out of the blue without much warning. On its own, it's a fairly average cartoon show.
* SugarWiki/SuperlativeDubbing: The excellent Spanish dub was the reason of its popularity in Latin America, with ''Karla Falcon'' as a snarky Yumi and ''Leyla Rangel'' as a overly cute Ami and the good chemistry and comedic timing they had.
* TastesLikeDiabetes:
** The color scheme and overall "cuteness" of the series is likely to turn away a lot of viewers.
** Greatly averted with the two segments that star The Talent Suckers because they lack most of the color scheme and "cuteness".
* ToyShip: Yumi and Atchan.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: "Treasure Map"[=/=]"Artist Ami"
* UnexpectedCharacter: The Talent Suckers' cameo appearance in "Puffy B.C.". That episode took place entirely in the pre-history and they only appear because of a never seen before (or since) TimeMachine.
* UglyCute: Nikolai.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Does anyone else think Yumi looks like a boy?
* WereStillRelevantDammit: The show hit a twofer with this. Puffy [=AmiYumi=] were way out of their peak popularity when the show landed, and it also came in the dying wave of anime-parody/anime-referencing western toons.
* TheWoobie: Both Ami and Yumi can be this at times. Episodes like "In the Cards" and "House Unkeeping" are seen as their most woobie-ish moments.
** JerkassWoobie: Kaz is this when he has to put up with Jang Keng and Tekirai (Ami and Yumi's pet kittens).
