* BadassDecay: Marginal case. Speedy was still Badass in the De Patie Freleng shorts, but his SuperSpeed wasn't ''completely'' impenetrable, having more moments he was overpowered, and in rare cases even [[ATasteOfDefeat lost altogether]]. To compensate, Speedy also became a more cerebral trickster, able to use wits to win as often as his speed.
* DorkAge: Speedy's bouts against WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck are often considered the lowest point of the original ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' series.
** GuiltyPleasure: They have some fans however.
* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: TropeNamer. His Mexican voice actors are actually really good at their jobs, and Speedy himself is a crafty little guy when you get right down to it; he actually holds up as a ''character'' beyond being a TokenMinority in the Looney Tunes ensemble.
* SavedByTheFans: What ultimately got his cartoons back on the air.
