* BaseBreaker: Mandy. On the one hand, Mandy is pretty much the textbook example of the AlphaBitch, being a {{Jerkass}} and sporting an annoying voice to boot, not to mention having a KarmaHoudini moment from time to time. On the other hand, a lot of fans actually like Mandy, and not just in the DracoInLeatherPants kind of way, using the numerous times where she attempted to treat the girls nicely as evidence that she's not a total {{Jerkass}}. She's one of the most frequently shipped characters in the fandom (usually with Clover or Sam), and some even find her "annoying" voice sexy in a weird sort of way (it helps that she's voiced by JenniferHale).
** Britney and Blaine get their fair share of this too, Britney has simultaneously been lambasted for being a MarySue and praised for being a ''likable'' MarySue who gets HiddenDepths later on. Blaine gets bashed for his SickeninglySweethearts relationship with Clover, though some fans do see him as pretty much the perfect match for Clover, as long as you don't ship her in one of her many [[HoYay Les Yay]] pairings.
* BestKnownForTheFanservice[=/=]JustHereForGodzilla: Some viewers only watch it for... certain scenes. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Let's just leave it at that.]]
* CompleteMonster: Helga Von Guggen is a greedy fashion designer who makes "seamless" fur coats by kidnapping innocent people, injecting them with a serum that turns them into PettingZooPeople, then [[FlayedAlive skinning them alive]] in what appears to be a giant industrial crusher. She brags about one of her coats, claiming that it's "genuine lawyer".
* CrossoverShip: The aforementioned crossover episode with ''WesternAnimation/MartinMystery'' [[ShipTease teased]] Martin/Alex and M.O.M./Jerry.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Tim Scam and Mandy
* EvilIsSexy: Geraldine Husk and Tim Scam are the most noticeable and recurring, but the series is definitely packing a few others as well.
** Also, Tuesday Tate.
** And of course, we can't forget about Shirley!
* FanPreferredCouple[=/=]FoeYayShipping: Sam/Tim Scam
* HarsherInHindsight: "Space Much?" features an asteroid about to crash down in Moscow. In 2013, the Chelyabinsk meteor exploded in Russia.
* HilariousInHindsight: Jerry gets a computer assistant name Gladis in the third season. [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Wait, why does that sound familiar?]] And [[AIIsACrapshoot she turns evil]] in one episode, almost furthering the resemblance.
** The names are even spelled in similar ways. Are you sure someone on the team wasn't a fan of the show?
* [[HoYay Les Yay]]:
** Alex refers to a "super-hot model". The model is female.
** Also, the link mentioned in AbridgedSeries above. May not be official, but hey, those are [[HoYay Les Yay]] to the max.
** Sam and Mandy in "Eraser".
* ParanoiaFuel: WOOHP can get the girls from ''anywhere''.
* TheScrappy: G.L.A.D.I.S., she was literally killed-off due to fan-complaints!
* TestosteroneBrigade: When a female-targeted kids' show has {{Fanservice}} as much as this one does, it's inevitable.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The voice actors for the English dub being replaced with sound-alike Canadians has been somewhat controversial.
* WritersCannotDoMath: The girls were apparently 10 in the 80's. That would point them in their 30's by the time the show aired.
** Alternatively, the show could be set from the mid-to-late 1990s, just equipped with {{Anachronism Stew}}s.
* TheWoobie: Alex in "Alex Gets Schooled," where her parents send her to a British boarding school where she is bullied and eventually turned into a dolphin monster. This was all because of her supposed bad grades, only for it to turn out that it was a mix-up the whole time. Also, in "Boy Bands Will Be Boy Bands," where her favorite singer ends up betraying her and forcing her to switch faces with his hag of a manager, as well as the b-plot involving Mandy bullying her.
** Clover in "Matchmaker," she actually breaks down crying after Sam and Alex turn on her.
