* AscendedMeme: As part of the fundraiser for the animated movie, one of the prizes was being able to finally take Atticus up on his offer about going out for pizzas with Troy.
* BreakoutCharacter: Atticus.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Yes, Atticus is pathetic and only wants to be friends with Todd, but he's also a psychopath who revels in being evil, murders on a regular basis, and is overall a huge dick in general.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Hannah and Atticus are clearly the two most popular main characters, getting the lion's share of the plotlines in season 2.
** Certain one-shot characters are also fondly remembered, such as Troy, the jock who manages to cram ridiculous amounts of HoYay in with Atticus over the course of 3 minutes.
** Charlotte, Hannah's tongueless romantic rival is also quite popular. As is StraightGay [[TheWoobie Woobie]] Simon.
** Len Bergman, [[KnightOfCerebus for being one of the only legitimately creepy villains in the show.]]
** Eddie of the Metal Dudes is popular due to his catchphrase.
* FanPreferredCouple: Surprisingly, Todd/Atticus has eclipsed all other pairings in popularity. Hannah/Todd is also more popular than the canon Jenny/Todd, due to Hannah's popularity and accommodating nature with Todd.
* FountainOfMemes: Atticus. Most of the show's quotes come from him.
** To a lesser extent, Jimmy.
* GrowingTheBeard: Season 2 has a much more compelling overarching plot and succeeds in making the entire cast more likeable.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Jay? What are you doing here? And where is Silent Bob?
** Wow, [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Death]] is running an evil cult now? Seems like a bit of a downgrade.
** It's a Canadian TV Show. Constant HITG's are to be expected if you've seen more than one Canadian TV show. Case in point? There's the original short the show is based on, and.... Hey! It's [[Series/{{Degrassi}} Spinner!]]
** Also Hannah is Kathi from Darcey's Wild Life.
** Brody, the blond stoner always hanging around outside the school, is more of a HeyItsThatVoice in a live-action show. Thanks to his SurferDude voice, ''TotalDramaIsland'' viewers can recognize him as Geoff and ''{{Bakugan}}'' fans as Jake.
* HolyShitQuotient: The second season finale reveals [[spoiler: that Hannah's parents experimented on the Book of Pure Evil and the three metal dudes are apparently immortal magic-users. Not only that, but Todd expels the Book of Pure Evil from the school, Atticus becomes trapped in its pages and Hannah dies as a result of her connection to the book. At least until a new Hannah emerges from a cloning tank in the basement of the Crowley Heights retirement home.]]
* HoYay: Todd has quite a bit with both of his male companions, but the truly staggering amount he has with Atticus stands out. Doubles as FoeYay.
** Atticus and Troy have about three minutes of screen time together, but in those three minutes the HoYay rivals Todd/Atticus in intensity.
* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Todd can and is literally shipped with the entire main cast.
** ShipToShipCombat: Inevitable. Todd/Jenny, Todd/Hannah and Todd/Atticus all have pretty large followings who are insulted whenever their couple is not portrayed as official in a fanfic. Todd/Curtis shippers also exist, but mostly as a joke and are more of a minority than the other three.
** {{Shipmates}}: Curtis/Hannah is wildly accepted by all non Todd/Hannah shippers. It's also surprisingly common for [[PairTheSpairs Atticus to end up with Jenny when neither is getting shipped with Todd.]]
* MisaimedFandom: See PeripheryDemographic. It's pretty ridiculous how a group of people could be so focused on the relationship between Todd and Atticus to the point where they'll complain whenever either is teased with anyone else. Keep in mind this show is filled Heavy Metal, {{Gorn}}, BlackComedy and ToiletHumor, hardly prime BoysLove material.
* PeripheryDemographic: Surprisingly, the show is quite popular with YaoiFangirls due to the massive amount of ammo the show supplies for the Todd/Atticus ship.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Curtis was disliked by many fans initially due to being a seemingly useless dumbass. But overtime, his NiceGuy attitude and romance with Hannah made him one of the only non-BaseBreaker characters in the cast.
* TheScrappy: Jenny is disliked for her "whiny" personality and getting in the way of Todd/Atticus ships.
** It's also about her relationship with Todd: he's a HopelessSuiter around her, when all she brought to the table was her looks (and many argued that Hannah was just as attractive as her.); her rudeness and hostility rubbed people the wrong way, and the fact that she was often portrayed in a more positive and competent light than the other main characters often got her labeled as a MarySue.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler: The death of Hannah, followed by Curtis' heartbroken declaration that he blames Todd.]]
* {{Wangst}}: Played with, for laughs. Anytime anyone has an emotional issue, said person will run away crying out "Nobody understands me!"
* {{Woobie}}: Simon and Leslie are two examples. He was bullied just for being gay and wanted acceptance and understanding for being different; Leslie was bubbly, but socially awkward and [[IJustWantToHaveFriends just wanted some friends]]. In both cases, the other students realized they'd essentially cast spells with the Book and kill them. If anything, it shows just how much of a CrapsackWorld the characters live in or how ruthless [[JackassGenie the Book]] is.
** Atticus may be a massive tool, but his entire life is essentially one gigantic TraumaCongaLine.
