* AllStarCast: See HeyItsThatVoice below.
* AngstWhatAngst: You'd think Word Girl would express more sadness over a good friend of hers who wrote the book that taught her what she knows about being a superhero (Dr. Boxleitner) turning into her arch enemy than she does.
** Maybe she knows more about him, such as a love of cheese, so that she's not quite as sorrowed over his change. Plus, the Doctor has had his decent moments.
* BizarroEpisode: "Sandwich World".
** "Mouse Brain Take Over" may be the most prominent example of this trope on the show, depending on individual's opinions.
* CargoShip:
** Lady Redundant Woman and her prized copy machine.
*** She treats it more like her child because she calls it her baby in a few episodes. So she isn't really romantically in love with it.
* CounterpartComparison: People compare Two-Brains and [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Ice King]] ''all the time'', since they share [[Creator/TomKenny a voice actor]] and have a [[WasOnceAMan somewhat similar backstory]]. Two-Brains is played [[AngstWhatAngst much less tragically]], however, possibly because of the show's younger target audience.
* EarWorm: ''WORD UP! It's Word Girl...'''
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Tobey and Dr. Two Brains.
* EvilIsSexy:
** And the fans know who that guy is.
** Oddly enough, it seems that Dr. Two Brains and Tobey are the only ones who acquire any recognition...
*** Though Tobey might be considered "Evil is Cute".
** Miss Power. Even to the point where a commentator on the [=WordGirl=] Wiki asked for someone to draw her in a bikini.
** Mr. Big is considered this to most fans as well.
* FanPreferredCouple:
** Becky/Tobey is easily more popular than Becky/Scoops. Neither one is [[OfficialCouple official]], though.
** Dr. Two Brains/[=WordGirl=] is growing steadily more popular among the older fans.
*** This one would probably need an age-up from Word Girl in order to avoid {{Squick}}.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Nearly every character is played by a famous actor/comedian. Chris Parnell of {{SNL}} fame, H. Jon Benjamin from HomeMovies, Patton Oswalt from Ratatouille, John C. [=McGinley=]...[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1128052/fullcredits#cast just check out the cast page on IMDB]].
** Doctor Two-Brains is TomKenny aka SpongeBobSquarePants, using an extremely similar voice to [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime The Ice King]].
* HilariousInHindsight: TJ and Tim Botsford were shown to be outright obsessive male fans of ''The Pretty Princess and Magical Pony Power Hour'' several years before ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' aired.
* JerkassWoobie: Victoria Best, who is mainly motivated by the desire to make her parents proud.
** It's hard not to feel bad for Tobey. He has poor social skills, is terrified of his mother, and is primarily motivated by his hopeless crush on Wordgirl. Plus he seems to be one of the few characters to realize he's SurroundedByIdiots which is why his only friends are robots.
* LauncherOfAThousandShips:
** [=WordGirl=] is incessantly paired up with almost all the male characters and quite a few female ones. She is basically the center point for all shippings in the show.
** Don't forget about [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys the monkey!]]
** Browsing through deviantART, Dr. Two Brains, possibly the fan-favorite villain, can be seen shipped (both jokingly and seriously) with [=WordGirl=]/Becky, Leslie, Lady Redundant Woman, Steve [=McClean=], Glen Furlblam, and The Butcher. Many of these ships even include Dr. Two Brains' previous identity, Professor Steven Boxleitner.
* MagnificentBastard: Dr. Two-Brains and Granny May.
* MoralEventHorizon: Miss Power trying to kill Dr. Two Brains.
* NoYay: {{Squick}}ily enough, it's hard to escape the impression that TJ has a full-blown [[BrotherSisterIncest crush]] on [=WordGirl=]
** Though she's HappilyAdopted which makes it NotBloodSiblings...not that Becky finds that any better.
* TheOtherDarrin: In Lady Redundant Woman's premier episode, she was voiced by Amanda Plummer. Since then she's been voiced by Grey [=DeLisle=].
* PeripheryDemographic:
** It's a vocabulary-based Edutainment show on Creator/{{PBS}} targeting six-year-olds. The fact that it even has a TV Tropes page is telling, let alone one this long.
** Not exactly. It's on the PBS Kids Go! block, which by default targets older children. Also, WordOfGod has stated that attracting a periphery demographic was entirely intentional.
** "Older children" meaning instead of six-year-olds, nine-year-olds watch it. Its fanbase is still a rather impressive feat.
* {{Shipping}}:
** There's ''a lot'' of shipping amongst the fans of the show (mainly due to the wide range of characters). Most shippings involve [=WordGirl=] with any one of the other characters.
** [=WordGirl=] and Tobey, [=WordGirl=] and Scoops, [=WordGirl=] and Dr. Two Brains, [=WordGirl=] and Huggy, [=WordGirl=] and Violet...
** [[LesYay WordGirl and]] [[FoeYay Victoria Best, anyone?]]
* TheScrappy: Todd "Scoops" Ming is this to many fans.
** There are very few fans who actually like Eileen.
* SelfFanservice: A few minute tour of the [=WordGirl=] fanart on deviantART is enough to notice that some artists portray her as [[MostCommonSuperpower drastically enhanced]].
** Dr. Two-Brains also gets drawn as {{Bishounen}} levels of sexy.
* ShipMates: If a fan ships [=WordGirl=] and Tobey, it might just as well be required that they also conveniently ship Scoops/Violet. Inversely, the shippers of [=WordGirl=] and anyone else are just as likely to ship Violet and Tobey.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The "Miss Powers" story-line. Words have ''a lot'' of power so be ''very'' careful how you use them and "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" is a load of bull.
* TalkingToThemself: Seen in the short "Mouse Trap" when Dr. Two Brains argues with his former self, Steven Boxleitner.
** This has happened many times; an example would be when Two Brains rebuked TJ in "The Homerun King"
* TastesLikeDiabetes:
** This in fact is what makes Little Mittens so successful at stopping [=WordGirl=] in "Meat with a Side of Cute".
** [=WordGirl=] herself is very cute indeed. Her sparkly eyes and the way she plays with her [[ShowWithinAShow Pretty Princess]] toys is just too cute to stand.
* TooDumbToLive: This may be an edutainment show, but the fact that many ''adults'' on the show don't know the meanings of words like "entire" or "impolite" is [[Main/WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief rather bizarre]].
* UglyCute: The Energy Monster.
* TheWoobie: Amazing Rope Guy. Even [[IdiotBall the other villains]] think he's incompetent.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The producers actually wanted ''ReeseWitherspoon'' to voice [=WordGirl=].
* TheWikiRule: [[http://wordgirl.wikia.com/wiki/WordGirl_Wiki It has one]]
