- Headstrong (2007)
- Guilty Pleasure (2009)
Ashley Tisdale exhibits these tropes:
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: "Hot Mess"
- Break Up Song: "Over It", "Delete You", "Overrated", "It's Alright, It's Okay"
- Cut Song: The "Guilty Pleasure" song, which was recorded for the Guilty Pleasure album.
- Dawson Casting. In pretty much every role since she turned 20.
- Averted in Scary Movie 5 as she plays a young mother (a first for her) in her late 20's.
- Darker and Edgier: Ashley had been retaining a kid-friendly image for a while, but there were signs that she was ready to breakaway from her kid friendly image, as far as 2011, where it was announced that she was a fan of the Hangover movies. Then in 2012, it started to show even more, with images of her flipping the bird, and EVEN using the word "fuck" to the paparazzi. And in 2013, it was official, with Scary Movie 5 and the Maxim shoot, advertising it.
- In very late 2013, this has been toned down to extreme lengths to the point of where she was acting the way she did before 2012.
- Dye Hard / Dyeing for Your Art: a rare combination.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With HSM co-star Vanessa Hudgens.
- I Am Not Spock: She is still mainly associated with her roles as Maddie and Sharpay, and to a lesser extent, Candace.
- This has gotten to the point of where if she tries something new or appears in a movie, haters of her specifically because of her High School Musical days boycott said song or movie involving her. She can't break out of it.
- Intercourse with You: "He Said She Said", "Headstrong".
- Large Ham: She was the local Ham in HSM and is Candace Flynn. One wonders how she holds up her voice from the constant screaming.
- Averted as Savannah in Hellcats, where she managed to be a lot more restrained.
- Ms. Fanservice: In most of her music videos, and as Bethany in Aliens in the Attic.
- New Sound Album: Guilty Pleasure was a pop rock record.
- Platonic Life Partners: With HSM co-star Zac Efron.
- Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Most prominently with Vanessa Hudgens. They even have their own Portmanteau Couple Name, "Ashnessa".
- Rock Star Song: "Suddenly".
- She Is All Grown Up: Why she took part in Allure's annual nude celeb photo shoot ("I want people to notice I'm a grown woman"; she is 26). Although the fact she had her own offshoot Disney Channel movie reprising her High School Musical role just a few months later doesn't exactly help her cause.
- Though her more recent roles such as Sons Of Anarchy seem to be pointing towards more adult.
- Silly Love Songs: "We'll Be Together", "Me Without You", "So Much For You"
- Stalker with a Crush: "Don't Touch".
- Spiritual Successor: To Britney Spears, music-wise. on her first album. Hilary Duff music wise on her second album and is technically a follow up behind Hilary after Hilary started the trend of singing/songwriting/acting/producing coming from Disney.
- Title Track: Both albums thus far.
