The winner is a girl called Cleopatra who Fred claims "didn't have any ideas" and was just sort of there. Darker and Edgier: Averted, the show is brighter than the web video. In the web video, it is implied that Fred's mom is a prostitute. Fred's father is never there in the Web videos. He's not there in the movies or show either, but we get John Cena to make up for it.

FRED Gets Animated Pt.2 DVD Commentary: The first movie has one by director Clay Weiner, writer David Goodman, and actor Lucas Cruikshank. Depending on the Writer: On just how dark it gets. The original youtube videos depend on a lot of dark humour, the animated series is dark as well, and manages to be even crueller to the characters then the videos. The movies are pretty clean, with some things from the original hinted at and some dark comedy by Nickelodeon standards. The TV show is squeaky clean, with maybe a couple adult-ish jokes scattered throughout. Even Evil Has Standards: Kevin one time pretended to be Judy, saying that he and Judy had broken up, and wanted to date Fred. When Judy found out she stated that was too far, though Fred thought Judy was only acting. Fourth Wall Mail Slot: In . FRED gets Animated part 1 Getting Crap Past the Radar: The movies do this a lot. The web videos count too, even though they were on youtube, the darker jokes are slipped in subtly due to Fred's limited knowledge of the world combined with the fast pace of the videos most people don't catch on as to what Fred is actually talking about. Not to mention his hackin' catch phrase. Gross-Up Close-Up: In .

Missing Episode: While still accessible, and Fred Fights Over the Computer have since been set to unlisted, making them harder to find. Fred Throws a Party! Also the infamous "herpes episode" which was taken down the day it was uploaded, as demanded by Lucas's talent manager at the time. The Movie: Three of 'em, both of which were intended for theaters but ended up premiering on Nickelodeon. (The first film did make it to theaters in the UK due to the distributor capitalizing on Pixie Lott's popularity over there, but it bombed spectacularly.) Nickelodeon has also picked up a TV series ( ) and then a third movie ( Fred: The Show Fred 3: Camp Fred). No Ending: . The Babysitter's a Vampire Overly-Long Gag: In the first movie, when Fred's faced with a car repairman who doesn't speak English, he thinks he is being messed with and proceeds to run away screaming, while we are shown brief shots of different areas (like near a fence, on a railroad track and even on a rollercoaster track). This continues until he runs into a live dam. Parental Abandonment: His mom loves bars and staying out late and is almost never there, and his "rock star" dad is on Death Row. The first movie implies that Fred's dad actually lived nearby (until the movie's events actually occur), and was never in jail (or a rock star), but has Fred's dad appear in jail.

Fred himself to Judy in the original series. Talk Show: The series. Figgle Chat Talky Bookends: Trailers Always Lie: Nickelodeon's commercials for the second movie, AND HOW.

Training Montage: In the episode Fred: The Show "The Expired Cow". Tuckerization: The movies reveal that Kevin's family's last name is Libo, the same as writer David Goodman's cousins (as mentioned in the first movie's DVD Commentary). Unreliable Narrator: Even more so in the movies, where half of the events don't even happen. Unnamed Parent: Both of Fred's parents were this, but their names were eventually revealed: The Voice: Everyone that isn't Fred, except in a few specials, most of season 4, the movies, the talk show , the Figgle Chat Animated Adaptation , and the "It's Fred!"
