''My Life as a Teenage Robot'' was an AnimatedSeries that premiered on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} in 2003, and later aired previously-unaired episodes on Nicktoons Network from 2008--2009. It is the 18th show in Nickelodeon's popular Franchise/{{Nicktoons}} series. It was adapted from the ''WesternAnimation/OhYeahCartoons'' short ''My Neighbour was a Teenage Robot''.

The show, which takes place TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, revolved around a {{Fembot}} named [=XJ9=] (or simply Jenny Wakeman) who was designed in order to protect the Earth by a female scientist, but, after meeting her next door neighbor Brad and his little brother Tucker, decides she [[IJustWantToBeNormal would rather live a normal adolescent life.]] Jenny attempts to fit in at school, but usually fails, with hilarious results.

Her antics cause friction with her "mother" Nora Wakeman. Nora's strict treatment doesn't sit well with Jenny, either. Despite this, they care about each other, and eventually accept each other as mother and daughter.

Jenny [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld must also fight various menaces]] in the series, most notably The Cluster, a race of alien robots bent on conquering Earth, led by the evil Queen Vexus.

One of Jenny's friends, a nerd called Sheldon, has a crush on her, but she doesn't like him that way. He adopts the identity of a superhero robot himself (the Silver Shell) by wearing a suit of PoweredArmor, but must keep this a secret from Jenny and the rest.

!!''My Life As A Teenage Robot'' contains examples of:


[[folder:Tropes A-M]]
%%* AcmeProducts: [[ShoutOut Apparently,]] [[http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/607/785/1600/acme.1.jpg they sell life insurance]]
* AIIsACrapshoot: Armagedroid was created to destroy and disarm all weapons. He just can't discern between friends and enemies.
%%* AirVentPassageway: In "Future Shock".
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: The Cluster and several other of the spacegoing creatures Jenny meets. But inverted in an episode where a feline alien only say "Meow"... [[IntelligibleUnintelligible but Jenny, Brad and Tucker understand them]].
* AnachronismStew: Architecture and designs from the 1920s have somehow made it into the 2070s or so.
%%* AnAesop: Sometimes.
%%* AndThenWhat: In "The Legion of Evil".
* AngelFaceDemonFace: A rather extreme example in Todd, at the end of "A Robot For All Seasons". When he learns the true meaning of Christmas, his dour, dark face cracks and falls away revealing a smiling, rosy cheeked face.
* AnimeHair: A lot of characters, actually, in this rare western example. The most prominent are Brad and Dr. Wakeman with Jenny's metal pigtails meant to mimic this.
* {{Animesque}}: The style is a ShoutOut to ''Anime/AstroBoy''. Amusingly enough, Creator/CandiMilo, voice of Dr. Wakeman, voiced Astro Boy around the same year.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Tuck tends to be an annoyance to his older brother Brad.
%%* AnticipatoryBreathSpray
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: From "Unlicensed Flying Object":
-->'''Tuck''': You're going to blow us up, or vaporize us, or get us grounded! ''[Brad lifts off the UFO]'' Or get us ''un''-grounded.
* ArtDeco: The art style of the title cards is meant to invoke this.
* ArtShift: In "Daydream Believer", Jenny gets a hold of some software that allows her to dream, which she eventually abuses to work while she's awake. Each of her dream sequences has a rather large art shift, from Greco-Roman style to [[UpToEleven even more 1920s than the show was to begin with]] to - of all things - Creator/DrSeuss.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Plenty of the MonsterOfTheWeek fought by Jenny like Gigawatt and Armagedroid.
* AttackPatternAlpha: In "The Legion of Evil".
* AudibleGleam: After Jenny buffs her nails with an auto-chamois. And after she uses the "[[BuffySpeak vacuum thingie]]" to capture invading Minusians.
* BadassFamily: The Wakemans, obviously. Nora Wakeman is a MadScientist and a former officer of the [[SpacePolice Skyway Patrol]], and can still hold her own in combat at an advanced age; Jenny is a ridiculously powerful crime-fighting robot; and Jenny's sisters ([=XJ=] 1 through 8) are single-purpose prototypes who are still pretty strong in their own right (plus, they kick ''major'' ass when they [[CombiningMecha join forces]]).
* TheBadGuyWins: Killing the heroes aside, Dr. Locus successfully accomplish his objective in "Bradventure".
%%* BadJobWorseUniform
* BalloonBelly: Two literal examples:
** Jenny for a very brief moment in "Pest Control", where the rats disabling her central wiring system caused her belly to blow up like a balloon.
** Tuck in "Infectious Personality" after developing a farting problem so severe that he literally becomes a balloon filled with his own gas.
* BandageMummy:
** Brad is seen in a full-body cast by the end of "Tuckered Out".
** Tuck ends up in bandages from getting injured at the end of "Indes-tuck-tible".
* BankruptcyBarrel:
** In "Ear No Evil", many of the Lancer's victims end up wearing barrels after he robs them.
** Near the end of "Crash Pad Crash", one of Jenny's party guests running amok is a boy wearing a barrel.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Jenny, being a robot, is justified. Less justified is the first episode where she was able to rocket into space, blast away several meteors, get smacked around a bit, and reenter the atmosphere and return safely to Earth... with Tuck clinging onto her every step of the way. ''And he survived. '''And thought it was "Cool!"''''' [[MST3KMantra Don't even go into the facts about survival in space.]]
** Then there are the scenes where non-robotic characters seem to have no problem breathing in space (though it is {{Lampshaded}} very often).
*** Such as poor Sheldon, when he was [[ItMakesSenseInContext launched into an orbit around the sun by Jenny]] and spent 75 years in space, working in several situations including an open-top pirate ship with no space suit or anything.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Inverted in "Stage Fright" as it turns out that [[spoiler:the hideous aliens were trying to warn Jenny of the beautiful, but malevolent invaders.]].
* BerserkButton: Melody is very mild-mannered and excessively sweet. [[spoiler: But don't tell her she's evil like her "father."]]
** [[MyNaymeIs It's pronounced Teresa!]]
* BilingualBonus: Jenny's voice actress is Japanese-American, and in the episode where Jenny lost her English disc had her speaking Japanese for nearly the whole episode.
* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: Mezmers has an interesting front deco-cat sign.
** Some of the architecture on Cluster Prime, which are apparently giant sentient robots.
%%** Jenny's pad in "Crash Pad Crash."
%%* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Vega gets a version in "Escape From Cluster Prime".
* BowelBreakingBricks: Implied; As the major Cluster offensive hits Earth, Brad stands silently in horror. Then, Tuck drops down behind him, giving the impression of...[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar well, you get the idea.]]
* BraggingThemeTune: The theme song mentions that Jenny has the strength of 1,000,070 men and notes that it's why she shouldn't complain about her mother ordering her to protect the Earth from alien threats.
* BullyingTheDragon: The Krust cousins take every opportunity to torment and belittle XJ-9 socially, attempting to guarantee that Jenny never, ever becomes anything close to popular. They never quite seem to grasp that for all that Jenny is a cheerful, sweet-natured girl, she also happens to be a walking, talking, sapient weapons system capable of destroying entire alien battle fleets single-handed. In one episode, with the aid of a more aggressive friend, Jenny finally shows them exactly what she can do to make their lives miserable, yet even after she drives them into a breakdown, they don't learn from the experience.
* BunglingInventor: Krakus, despite the fact that one of his inventions worked perfect in the episode he was introduced, it is clear from dialog that it is not a common occurrence.
* CallBack: "Minky Momo" (not to be confused with the [[Anime/MagicalPrincessMinkyMomo magical princess of the same name]]) is an EarWorm song that Brad sings at the beginning of "I was a Preschool Dropout", which he and Tuck later use to escape in ''Escape from Cluster Prime''.
%%* CantGetInTroubleForNuthin: Lancer, almost, in "The Legion of Evil".
* CaptainPatriotic: The Silver Shell sometimes evokes this for [[LargeHam glorious hammitude]].
* CardCarryingVillain: Killgore, in a somewhat literal sense, seeing that his pricetag states he is a villain.
* CasualInterstellarTravel: DependingOnTheWriter. There was an entire episode devoted to Sheldon's galactic adventures, with a serious case of time dilation. At least one episode shows Tuck and Brad going to other worlds via Jenny's umbilical spacesuit.... [[BuffySpeak thingy]] and until she's stranded it's treated with all the gravity of a road trip.
* ChosenOne: Jenny is thought of to be the 'chosen one' by tiny aliens in the episode "Teen Idol".
* ClearMyName: The ChristmasEpisode has Jenny become a menace when Todd Sweeney takes control of her and has her wreak havoc on every holiday for an entire year. It's up to Jenny to fix everything and regain everyone's trust.
* ComedicUnderwearExposure: Sheldon, more than once, has his undies exposed for comedic effect.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: The bodybuilders in "This Time With Feeling" have the heads of Film/TheThreeStooges.
%%* CompetitionCouponMadness: In "Girl of Steal".
%%* TheComputerIsYourFriend: Armagedroid.
%%* ConvectionSchmonvection
%%* ConveyorBeltOfDoom: In "Enclosure of Doom" and "Escape From Cluster Prime".
%%* CookingDuel
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: M.J. Bryce from the episode "Labor Day", who runs a corporation that manufactures cereal prizes. He manipulates Jenny into eliminating his company's competition and isn't above stealing from his competitors to continue doing well in business.
* CrowdSong: Parodied in "A Robot For All Seasons", where Tuck asks everyone who they're singing to during the final musical number as well as how they're able to sing the lyrics flawlessly without practice.
* CurbStompBattle: Jenny vs. Gigawatt in "Mind Over Matter", several times over.
* CurseOfBabel: In "Speak No Evil" Jenny is rendered incapable of speaking English after losing that language disk on a mission in Japan. She speaks Japanese for most of the episode after that, which her actress Janice Kawaye is fluent in.
* CuteBruiser: Jenny, built like a teenage girl, a super robot that regularly pummels monsters into the crowd.
* CutShort: Although Renzetti wanted to make more episodes, which would've included Jenny and Sheldon hooking up and presumably wrapped up the dangling Misty and Melody plotlines, the show ended with only three seasons.
* DarkReprise: The theme song's film reel disintegrates in ''Escape From Cluster Prime'', which begins an orchestral arrangement of the song that isn't so cheery.
* DeathCourse: The eponymous "Enclosure of {{Doom|yDoomsOfDoom}}". [[spoiler:Which is Armagedroid.]]
* DeathbringerTheAdorable[=/=]HarmlessVillain: Killgore. Terrifying name, the robot itself...not so much.
%%* DelegationRelay: In "Mama Drama".
%%* DistractedByTheShiny: In "Stage Fright".
* DoAndroidsDream: Referenced by Dr. Wakeman in the episode "Daydream Believer".
* {{Doppelganger}}: A non-hostile example in ''Escape from Cluster Prime''; the high school on Cluster Prime has robotic versions of Brad, Sheldon, and Tuck. "Drab" and "Shell" even share voice actors with their human counterparts, while "Tuff" is voiced by a deep-voiced man in contrast to Tuck's Audrey Wasilewski.
* DownerEnding:
** "No Harmony with Melody" has Melody leave Brad over her difficulty in proving that she isn't like her father.
** "Mist Opportunities" concludes with Jenny having a falling out with Misty after realizing that she's become selfish and only willing to save lives for personal gain.
* DressedAllInRubber: Jenny tries this to fight Gigawatt, but it backfires badly.
%%* DrillSergeantNasty: The Sky Patrol general in "Last Action Zero". Played by R. Lee Ermey. Of course.
* DriveInTheater: Brad wants to go to one in "Future Scope"
* DrugsAreBad: "Daydream Believer". It's not hard to imagine it being about psychoactive drugs instead of daydreaming.
* DubInducedPlotHole: The Japanese dub of "Speak No Evil" has Jenny losing her language disc in America and only being able to speak English back in her Japanese-speaking hometown. As a result of the language switch, "America" had many more aspects of Japanese culture than "Japan".
%%* EasyAmnesia: Invoked in "A Pain In My Sidekick".
* TheEeyore: XJ-7 tends to be pessimistic and depressed.
%%* EnemyMine: Jenny and Killgore in "Enclosure of Doom".
%%* EnterStageWindow
* EvilCounterpart: The Lonely Hearts Club gang for Sheldon. Both of them cause trouble because they were [[FreudianExcuse rejected by the woman they loved]]. Sheldon was himself ''brutally'' rejected by Jenny, and was offered membership, but still chose to save Jenny from them.
* EvilLaugh: Marty in "Mama Drama" has a ''suberb'' evil laugh. Tuck also has a pretty good one... and Vexus... Oh the show is full of them.
* ExpositoryThemeTune:
-->''Five o'clock, get a call to go blading at the skate park down by the mall \\
But my mom says I gotta prevent hostile aliens from annihilating us all...''
* ExpressiveMask: Sheldon as the Silver Shell, and Tucker as his sidekick, the Tin Can.
* {{Expy}}: Rob Renzetti freely admitted the series was based on Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer, and XJ-9 is a pretty clear expy of early (circa season 1) Buffy Summers. Likewise, Brad is pretty obviously Xander, and the Krust Kousins are Cordelia Chase and Harmony Kendall before they were de-clawed.
* FaceHeelTurn: Subverted in "Attack of the 5 1/2 Foot Geek". The Lonely Hearts Club Gang kidnaps Sheldon in a successful attempt to lure Jenny, who gets offended when they refer to him as her "boyfriend" and promptly chews Sheldon out for being a "crazy, loser, stalker geek." This obviously breaks Sheldon's heart, which so moves the gang that they set him loose and vow to even let him join them when he graduates. However, Sheldon instantly turns on the gang and frees Jenny.
* FacePalm: This is a trope that the characters on this show seem to really like.
* {{Fanservice}}: It's debatable, but the episode "Victim of Fashion" is rife of this...y'know, if you have a thing for catsuits, Victorian era dresses, sea life, and Music/TheNotoriousBIG
* FantasticRacism: Jenny herself is absolutely no stranger to this trope, being a robot is one of the primary reasons she’s belittled by her peers in school. The episode "The Return of Raggedy Android" goes so far as to have the owner of Mezmer's diner flat out call Jenny a “filthy mechanized nuisance” to her face, and subsequently reveal that he has the right to refuse service to robots when she protests. In addition to this, there are a few moments scattered throughout the series in which Jenny is clearly irritated by humans acting out cheesy robot stereotypes. For example, in the episode [[MovieMakingMess “Tuckered Out”]] a brattier than usual Tucker tells Jenny that she’s not acting “robotic enough” for his shoddy amateur film to which she angrily shouts, “EXCUSE ME?!?”. This stands out as a TruthInTelevision moment that sadly echoes the experiences of many actors of color.
* FantasyGunControl: In "Escape From Cluster Prime", [[spoiler:Vexus is revealed to have disarmed the Cluster by removing microchips that would allow them to transform and keeping them in a vault.]]
* FeelNoPain: Being a robot, Jenny is impervious to pain, the only time she's capable of feeling it is when she tries on a set of nerves that Dr. Wakeman scrapped in "This Time With Feeling".
* FlawedPrototype: Of a sort. [=XJs=] 1 through 8 are clearly not as complete as Jenny, although 'flawed' isn't really the right word here, as they all seem to be testbeds for various functions eventually incorporated into Jenny. (Dr. Wakeman herself describes them as "failed" and "incomplete" in successive sentences.) Armagedroid, on the other hand, is something of a GoneHorriblyRight...
* [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgot About Her Weapon Systems]]: Jenny seems to forget about weapons and tools of hers that she's used in previous episodes if there's a chance they'll wrap up the plot in about two seconds.
** In one episode, she forgets that she can ''fly'', claiming her mom is her ride to school.
%%* {{Foreshadowing}}: Parodied in "Good Old Sheldon."
%%* FruitCart: A fish cart in "Voyage To the Planet of the Bikers."
* FunnyForeigner: "Around The World In 80 Pieces" has several of them.
* GadgeteerGenius:
** Sheldon - nearly on par with Wakeman herself. Mog and some of the others are somewhere between GadgeteerGenius and MadScientist.
** Played with, with Krakus. He has few problems with ''building'' his gadgets, but getting them to ''stay'' together, let alone work, is another story entirely...
* {{Gasshole}}: In the episode "Infectious Personality", Tuck develops a severe farting problem after [[ItMakesSenseInContext Jenny accidentally infects him with space dust]], to the point where his body ''inflated with his own gas''.
* GiantEqualsInvincible: Armegedroid. And a few others, but Armagedroid is really the only foe Jenny can't beat in a straight fight.
* GiantSpider: Jenny pretends to be one to scare Britt and Tiff in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles".
** "Sibling Tsunami" starts with Jenny having just defeated one, using its severed head as a ventriloquist's dummy.
* GodGuise: In one episode, Jenny is mistaken for a prophesied comet goddess by adorable tiny aliens.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Sheldon's undies in the episode "Saved By the Shell" has what appears to be a kitty-face on it.
** In the first episode, Jenny causes a baseball to fly so fast it rips off the clothes of everyone it passes, and ''every single person'' is wearing polka-dot boxers. ''Even '''birds.'''''
* GottaCatchThemAll: "Around the World in Eighty Pieces" involves Jenny being scattered to pieces and those pieces being sent all over the world. Brad, Tuck and Sheldon all race to reassemble her before the Cluster can invade.
%%* GreenEyedMonster
* GreenThumb: Jenny's cousin, Glenn has this power. Being a swamp monster-like being, he's surprisingly good at fighting with plant powers when he has to (fake-)fight with Jenny to get their moms to stop bickering.
** Wisteria herself considering she made Glenn the same way Ms. Wakeman made Jenny.
* GranolaGirl: Nora Wakeman's sister, Wisteria, described by her as a flower child.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Jenny can consistently store many, many more giant weapons inside her chassis than could conceivably fit.
* HandyRemoteControl: In "Turncoats" a belligerent scientist invents a remote control that can control any other invention. He uses it to forces all of Nora's inventions to try and kill her.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: In their first appearance, Brit and Tiff actually defended Jenny when the police were planning on bringing her downtown after the science lab caught on fire (which they caused), as thanks for saving their lives. They actually wanted Jenny to start hanging out with them, until Brit shook Jenny's hand too hard and dislodged the hair pin Tiff shot into it. As the two were being led away by the police they blamed Jenny for it.
* HeldBackInSchool: In "I Was a Preschool Dropout", Jenny is sent to kindergarten because she is technically only 5 years old.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Sorta, when Jenny tries wearing a human suit (one that isn't terrifying to look at) she gets red pigtails... [[HelloNurse and a lot of attention]].
* HeroicBSOD: Jenny, when Brad tosses an old calculator for a new one and tells her about Planned Obsolescence. She gets very distressed about the possibility of it happening to her
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Jenny in ''Escape From Cluster Prime'', especially in said place, where she was framed for destroying special defense chips, although there was so much focus on an artist's interpretation, no one knew that Jenny was the enemy [[spoiler: until a policeman recognized her]].
* HiveMind: The Cluster all have a shared conscience. Amplified with the insectoid appearances of its soldiers and top members.
* HonorBeforeReason: The titular robot vacuum in "Samurai Vac".
* HoverMecha: The Lancer in his MobileSuitHuman.
* HumanPet: An evil robot bent on enslaving mankind suggests to Brad and Tucker that Jenny might want to keep them as pets.
* HumongousMecha: Jenny briefly becomes one in 'Mind Over Matter', using a robot built out of ''her house''.
* HypocriticalHumor: At the end of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles", Brad points out how heroes should never use their powers for personal gain or revenge. He then asks Jenny to use her abilities to superglue Tuck's toys to the ceiling in retaliation to a slight from his younger brother.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Jenny's got no chance or real desire to actually be human, but she does want to fit in - in fact, Dr. Wakeman seems to have designed her with this in mind.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Subverted in "Sister Sledgehammer". XJ-5 tries to reach a Cluster-assimilated Jenny with an emotional appeal. She gets assimilated for it. It takes XJ-1 grossing Jenny out by barfing on her face to snap out of it.
%%* ImGoingToDisneyWorld: Used in "Histrionics".
* ImplacableMan: Armagedroid is very hard to stop. No matter what Jenny throws at him, it bounces off and he just rips the weapon off of her.
%%* ImprovisedArmour: Brad in "Humiliation 101".
* IncrediblyLameFun: In one episode, a cereal box toy company CEO introduces a ''slide rule'' as his company's "latest toy".
--> '''Jenny:''' Uh, that's...
--> '''CEO:''' Exactly; it ''stinks''!
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Krakus, a bungling old scientist for the Cluster, who can barely do anything right.
** The diminutive Killgore, who despite his boasts and threats, is never taken seriously by anyone.
* InspectorJavert: The Skyway Patrol lieutenant. He is right that Jenny is a vigilante, but he's motivated by jealously over her constantly outdoing him. His efforts to bust her lead to humiliation and getting fired.
* InsultBackfire
--> '''Nora:''' Where did you get that idea: a gumball machine?
--> '''Sheldon:''' I'll have you know that gumball machines hold valuable information!
* InterspeciesRomance:
** Sheldon's crush on Jenny, for one. And Jenny's attraction to Don Prima in the first season.
** Brad's near-marriage by [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Tammy.]][[spoiler: He would've agreed to do it, too, it it wasn't for the clause that would turn him into a domestic slave.]]
** Brad seems quite prone to this, considering his short relationship with Melody and his implied relationship with Misty.
%%* InWithTheInCrowd
* JerkassHasAPoint: When a jealous Skyway Patrol Lieutenant arrest Dr. Wakeman for Jenny's actions in saving lives, Jenny's first thought is to prove their innocence. However Dr. Wakeman point's out that the Lieutenant is right.
-->'''Dr. Wakeman:''' "Technically we're ''not'' innocent, you do work [[VigilanteMan outside the law]]. Normally Skyway Patrol is [[PoliceAreUseless too inept]] to notice, but this Lieutenant has made it personal.
* JustAMachine: No better way to stab Jenny in the ego!
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: Subverted in "Bradventure". Dr. Locus ''thinks'' he told him his secrets though, and proceeds with the BondVillainStupidity.
* {{Kaiju}}: Many of the monsters that Jenny fights like Gigawatt and Armagedroid. Bonus points on the missions where Jenny fights these in Japan.
* KickMePrank: "Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles" has Jenny and Misty get into a series of conflicts with the Crust Cousins. At one point, the two pairs repeatedly put signs with "Kick Me"-type messages on each other's backs.
* KillerRabbit: ''Mist Opportunity'' reaches it's climax when a black and white bunny with super strength and laser eyes attacks the town. He mops the floor with Jenny, who had been slacking off on her training. At the end an entire herd of them show up.
* KnightOfCerebus: Armagedroid and Gigawatt both share this. Jenny couldn't defeat either of them directly - they curb-stomped her. Not to mention Gigawatt was just unnerving.
** The puppet Lil' Acorn trumps them all. Ignoring his backstory, he [[spoiler: defeated Jenny with ease. And he's a PUPPET. He almost succeeded with his plan, too.]]
** Dr. Locus in that unlike the other examples he ultimately success in his debut episode and has come rather close to kill both Jenny and her mother
* TheLadette: The whole Space Biker gang consists of women who act tomboyish.
* LampshadeHanging[=/=]BetterThanABareBulb: Tons of this.
* LanguageBarrier: One episode had Jenny losing her English disc, making her only speak Japanese through the whole episode. She tried using charades to communicate with mother but she [[NonverbalMiscommunication misinterpret "speak"]] for another. Though it's not stated [[FridgeLogic why she couldn't write things down.]]
* LargeHam: Sheldon as The Silver Shell. Though this is done intentionally.
* LaughWithMe: Smytus monologues about his evil plan and then lets out an EvilLaugh, while his minions just stare. He gives them an icy glare and says, "You laugh too." The minions all start laughing themselves silly, so much so that they accidentally let the episode's AppliedPhlebotinum out of their ship's airlock.
* LawfulStupid: The Skyway Patrol. So much so that they need to fill out a mountain of authorization forms (in quintuplet, mind you) to take unauthorized actions.
** Armagedroid too, although he's just programmed to be extremely single-minded.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In "A Robot For All Seasons":
-->'''Tuck:''' Hey, who are you guys singing to? [[CrowdSong And how'd you memorize those lyrics with no practice?]]
* LegionOfDoom: The titular villain team in "The Legion of Evil" consisted of the Lancer, the Mudslinger, and the Mad Hammer Bros., with Russian lab rat Vladimir as the leader.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Several. Sheldon has one, Brit and Tiff have one, the Cluster have a war march, and Jenny has one for when she's in superhero mode.
%%* LilliputianWarriors: The Minutians.
%%** The Martians in "The Wonderful World of Wizzly", but are just Lilliputians.
* LimitedWardrobe: The trope of appearing in the same clothes all the time is lampshaded for an episode; The Crust cousins point out how Jenny only has one look, forcing her to apply her weapon shapeshifting into constructing new outfits.
* LongLostRelative: [[spoiler: Noreen's sister Wisteria and her "son" Glenn]].
%%* MacGyvering: Double-subverted.
%%* MadScientist: Among them, Dr. Wakeman is the sane one.
* TheMenInBlack: Ruthlessly parodied in "Agent Double-O Sheldon", which sees Sheldon joining such an organization.
* MistakenForMurderer: The entire plot of "Future Shock" is Tuck trying to save Brad from a future where Jenny kills him. [[spoiler:Turns out there was a big misconception going on.]]
%%** Melody also qualifies, provided you don't hit her BerserkButton.
* MoodMotif: The violin of tense suspense.
* MotherlyScientist: Dr. Wakeman; Jenny calls her "mom".
* MyNaymeIs: Pteresa, who insists to everybody else that, "It's pronounced Teresa!" Only the Crust cousins seem to get it.

[[folder:Tropes N-Z]]
%%* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Sheldon at the end of "The Price of Love."
* NeonSignHideout: The Cluster has a recruiting storefront in Tremorton that any old hostile robot can just walk into without fear of the Skyway Patrol.
%%* NerdGlasses: A few times, but not on Sheldon (the biggest nerd of the show) or Tuck (second-biggest).
* NeverMessWithGranny: The majority of Tremorton thinks Nora's a dotty old lady at best and a demented MadScientist at worst. But she was once Skyway Patrol, and the asskicking she did then she has not forgotten by the time ''Escape From Cluster Prime'' occurs.
* NeverSayDie: Completely averted. The cast regularly says "kill", "death", "dead" and "die". One episode is called "Dressed to Kill" and there's a character named Killgore.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Generally, Jenny's weapon systems can do anything and everything she wants them to, unless it becomes dramatically inconvenient (see ForgotAboutHisPowers above).
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Some of what happens is usually Jenny's fault.
%%* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: Invoked.
* NoHarmRequirement: In the episode ''Shell Game'', Jenny lets all the harmless reptiles in a reptile exhibition loose in an attempt to draw ought Silver Shell whose stolen her robotic heart. But in the chaos, a giant deadly python gets loose and begins putting the squeeze on Sheldon. Jenny tries to hold out for Silver but unbeknownst to her, Silver Shell is actually Sheldon in a robot disguise. Fortunately she comes to her senses and engages the reptile. But after she gets Sheldon free and tries to [[MoreDakka empty her arsenal on the serpent]], Sheldon stops her because while he's dangerous, he's a protected species. So instead, Jenny gets the long reptile to chase her around, causing it to tie itself in a knot.
* NoodleIncident: Skippy the Evil Sock Puppet is referenced three times, but why exactly he is a supervillian, his origins of a sentient sock puppet has never been explained and he has never battled Jenny onscreen.
* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Averted - Jenny has "sisters" who are prototypes (it's even played more realistically than is usual). However, this doesn't stop her from being the only one like her, ever. In fact, one of Wakeman's rivals is able to create his own male version of Jenny, which for some reason [[spoiler: has dog instincts]].
* NoWaterProofingInTheFuture: Pretty much all robots in the show react negatively to water exposure. Well, at least if the plot needs them to have said negative reaction to water.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Exaggerated and Parodied in "Last Action Zero". When Brad joins the Skyway Patrol, he realizes that his dreams weren't all that cracked up to be when any form of a simple action in the line of duty as a Skyway Patrol Officer requires rolls upon rolls of Red Tape with a whole Mount Everest sized amount of paperwork to sign off on. Especially when Jenny is about to be dismantled by a group of Crater Critters, Brad is completely mummified in Red Tape when it comes to paperwork.
** Subverted and Double-Subverted by the Skyway Captain by initially agreeing with Brad's idea for taking "Rash and Immediate action", only for him to hand Brad more paperwork to sign off in triplicate.
* ObviouslyEvil: Triple-subverted in "Mama Drama". Dr. Wakeman's suitor has an evil laugh and looks creepy, which causes Jenny to assume that he has sinister intentions for Dr. Wakeman. The moment Jenny starts accepting that she's overreacting, she finds a creepy collection of photos of Dr. Wakeman. It ultimately turns out that the man had no intention of harming Dr. Wakeman and only wanted to give her two free tickets to Wizzly World.
* OhCrap: Jenny on occasion reacts in shock to realizing that she's in serious trouble. One of the drawbacks of a near-human personality.
** Vexus at the end of Escape From Cluster Prime, when [[spoiler: Vega and her friends give Cluster Prime back their golden chips.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler: Sheldon after the episode ''Good Old Sheldon'' only LOOKS 15. He's now officially 105 years old. Holy cow.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Misty in "Mist Opportunities" stops a KillerRabbit from finishing off Jenny because she picked a fight with her. She drops that after Jenny invokes WeUsedToBeFriends.
%%* OntologicalMystery[=/=]YouWakeUpInARoom: "Enclosure of Doom".
* OperationJealousy: Sheldon tries this in "The Price of Love" by paying Pteresa to pretend to be his girlfriend, hoping this will make Jenny realize she loves him. The charade ends up costing him everything he owns, even his clothes. [[spoiler: And the saddest part is that it actually kind of works! At the end of the episode, Jenny privately admits to herself that she’s missed having him around and that she might actually be interested in a RelationshipUpGrade. Of course, her hearing’s been really messed up all episode, so when she goes to talk to Sheldon about it, she thinks she hears him say that he’s too good for her now, when really he was saying exactly the opposite. Cue her storming off in a huff.]]
%%* OutGambitted: Killgore in "Enclosure of Doom".
* OverlyLongGag: Killgore's debut episode features a lengthy montage of him shouting "Surrender".
* PaperThinDisguise: In "Dressed to Kill", monstrous alien warrior Smytus convinces several characters that he's a Ukrainian supermodel by ''putting on a wig''.
** In "Escape From Cluster Prime", Jenny's superhero costume is the Cluster Prime flag and a pickelhaube.
%%* ParentalObliviousness: Nora Wakeman, again.
* ParodyNames: Many episode titles like [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack "Samurai Vac"]], "Raggedy Android", and [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles "Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles"]].
* PickedLast: Sheldon got picked last for everything.
%%* PickOnSomeoneYourOwnSize: Vexus.
* PieEyed: Most of the cast has these eyes, [[{{Retraux}} unusual for a modern cartoon]].
* PinocchioSyndrome: Averted with Jenny - she's perfectly fine with being a robot, but wants acceptance and assimilation... which sometimes means playing the trope straight.
* PlanetOfHats: Subverted in "Voyage To the Planet of the Bikers". [[spoiler:While Tuck and Jenny were expecting a lawless wasteland, they got an Earth-like world that wouldn't be out of place as an 70s sitcom.]]
%%* PortalSlam: In "Escape From Cluster Prime".
* PostKissCatatonia: Sheldon, every time Jenny kisses him. For that matter, it happens if she hugs him, too.
* PowerCrystal: The Pip crystals in "Dressed To Kill". They turn Brit and Tiff into [[RealityWarper reality shifting gods]].
* PowerFist: Dr. Wakeman gets a pair of power gloves in "Escape From Cluster Prime".
* ThePresentsWereNeverFromSanta: In "Bradventure", Jenny assists Brad in his escape from Dr. Locus in an attempt to make him feel epic and adventurous, but Brad isn't aware of this until he returns to rescue ''her''. Subverted when he appears to do the same stunts again, unassisted, and ''carrying a 600-pound robot'', but no one learns that Dr. Locus's creation, Melody, was helping him ''that'' time.
%%* PressurePoint: Invoked in "Call Hating" on Jenny.
* PunchClockHero: Misty in "Mist Opportunities". Jenny herself will occasionally gripe about having to save the world on a regular basis (=less time for a social life), but is always on duty.
* PunchClockVillain: [[spoiler:The biker gang, who are only marauding dominatrices on the weekend, and work at an elementary school for the rest of the time.]]
%%* PunctuationShaker: "Meat's 4 You" and "Vacuum's".
* TheQuisling: Brit and Tiff in ''Escape From Cluster Prime''. They make a HeelFaceTurn in just the right minute, and [[KarmaHoudini get away pretty easily]]. Unless you count them being riddled with filth as punishment, which was unintentionally caused by the ship Jenny and friends are riding in.
* RaceAgainstTheClock: "Historionics" has Jenny, Brad, Tuck and Sheldon race to get off of an island [[spoiler:which can best be described Franchise/JurassicPark [[RecycledINSPACE BUT WITH ROBOTS OF HISTORICAL FIGURES]]]] before Jenny's back-up battery runs out (due to [[ItMakesSenseInContext her crash into the ocean]] ruining her main one). As if to [[LampshadedTrope acknowledge this]], Jenny's eyes act as a battery meter during the proceedings.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Jenny gives a brutal one about Sheldon when she has enough of people calling him her "boyfriend."
-->'''Jenny:''' He's ''not my boyfriend!'' I don't even ''know'' him! He's just some crazy, loser, stalker geek! He's ''not'' my boyfriend, he's ''not'' my friend, ''he's not my '''nothing!'''''
* RedHerring: In "The Boy Who Cried Robot", Tuck befriends a kid named Lon who is hairy and has a fang. There are a few hints that Lon is a werewolf, at one point even telling Tuck that it's time for him to meet the wolf he talked about while the full moon appears, but it ultimately turns out that the wolf in question was just a pet Lon wanted to show Tuck.
* {{Retraux}}: The show's artstyle is reminiscent of an old Disney cartoon with PieEyed pupils and all. Not to mention, the title cards are made to look like ArtDeco.
* ReversePolarity[=/=]TechnoBabble: Parodied in "Escape From Cluster Prime". Completely subverted later on:
-->'''Sheldon:''' We don't have ''time'' for sci-fi brinkmanship! My Jenny needs me! * proceeds to hotwire a ''starship''*
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Actually played with throughout the series. Jenny experiments with devices that make her more ''like'' a human (she's mostly cool with being a robot), including [[ThatCameOutWrong pleasure]]/pain sensors. But they're still working out the kinks. [[spoiler:Melody takes this UpToEleven.]]
* RoboFamily: Jenny has several "sisters" who are actually [=failed/incomplete=] prototypes created by her inventor who have since been shut down and locked up in the basement.
* RobotKid: Or teenager, whatever; a couple of her 'sisters' fit this better than she does.
* RoguesGallery: Other than the Cluster, we also have Killgore, Armagedroid, and numerous one-off villains.
* {{Ronin}}: Parodied in "Samurai Vac" with a robotic vacuum cleaner of the "Samurai" brand that speaks with an over-the-top Japanese accent.
* RunningGag: "Hey, look! It's snowing!"
* SafetyWorst: Tuck is almost hit by a car. As a result he shuts himself away from the outside world Jenny tries to reassure him of his safety by showing him at a ripe old age through the "Future Scope", which leads him to believe he will live to old age no matter what, and spends the rest of the episode performing a number of life threatening stunts. He forgets that even if he lives he still could get badly damaged.
* ScareChord: Spoofed by Killgore in "Enclosure of Doom".
%* ScoobyStack: Jenny, Sheldon, Brad and Tuck spy on Dr. Wakeman's boyfriend this way in "Mama Drama"
%%* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl:
%%* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Skyway Patrol
* SelfDestructMechanism: The main warship in "Escape from Cluster Prime." Also used in Armagedroid, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment for a bomb]], and by Killgore in "Enclosure of Doom".
* ShapeShifterBaggage: Where on Earth does Jenny keep all those crazy gadgets? Possibly explained in "Victim of Fashion": Tuck is sifting through Jenny's arsenal and discovers an object that [[{{Hammerspace}} opens up into nowhere]]. Notably the inversion is averted, that episode also makes a plot point of the fact that Jenny can't make herself smaller or thinner.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Spoofed. When Jenny wants to get pretty for a party invite, she visits a garage and gets a full tune-up and new paint job. ...from a bunch of greasy gearheads, at that. The music and Jenny's reaction equate it to a spa day for a human girl.
* ShipTease (despite being [[JustFriends explicitly platonic]], the writers gave Jenny and Brad a few scenes that had {{shipp|ing}}ers {{squee}}-ing.)
* ShoutOut: Now has [[ShoutOut/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot its own page!]]
* ShownTheirWork Combined with GeniusBonus: While the episode “Puppet Bride” is a fairly faithful parody of the original Frankenstein book by Mary Shelley and it’s tropes (ParentalAbandonment, UncannyValley, CallingTheOldManOut, ThenLetMeBeEvil, YouNeedToGetLaid), the episode “Tuckered Out” is a parody of all the LostInImitation tropes about Frankenstein in the subsequent movies (TheIgor, MadScientist, LightningCanDoAnything:, etc).
* SiblingTeam: XJ-9 and her prototypical "sisters", XJ Mark 1 through 8.
* SiblingYinYang: Nora and Wisteria, science VS nature.
%%* SlaveRace: Robots; sometimes PlayedForLaughs. In Cluster, humans.
%%* SlowDoors: In "A Robot For All Seasons".
* SmugSuper: The Teen Team. They don't like normal people because they've shunned them.
%%* SpaceIsCold
* SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace: Subverted in "Ball and Chain" - Jenny bangs on the window and calls Brad's name. Brad tells Jenny he doesn't want to be rescued and marries Tammy anyway. He justifiably begins to regret it because Tammy's species treats spouses as somewhere between slave and house pet and calls the marriage off at the reception, resulting in him needing to be rescued.
%%* SpontaneousChoreography: In "Humiliation 101". Comes out of nowhere.
* SpoofAesop: A parody of ComesGreatResponsibility in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles". Anvilicious AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle segments themselves are mocked in "Weapons of Mass Distraction" as well.
* SquashedFlat: Usually very briefly and possibly outside the domain of CartoonPhysics as she's just a robot.
* StalkerWithACrush: Sheldon. Viewer reaction with him tends to swing between, "Aw, that's kind of cute." and "What the hell is ''wrong'' with that boy?"
* StatusQuoIsGod: While this trope is normally averted in the show due to just how much continuity it has, there is one pair of episodes in particular that specifically double subverts it. In the end of "Teen Idol", Jenny launches a spaceship full of aliens into orbit...with Sheldon stuck aboard the ship and promptly forgotten by the characters. The very next short, "Good Old Sheldon", brings Sheldon back to Earth as an old man, [[ItMakesSenseInContext this having been caused by Jenny launching him into space]], and [[InvokedTrope the entire episode is spent trying to reverse this and bring everything back to status quo.]]
* StopWorshippingMe: In one episode, Jenny is mistaken for the Comet Goddess by a group of {{Adorkable}} aliens, and while the worship is nice at first, she eventually gets sick of it.
* StrippingSnag: In "The Price of Love", Sheldon pays Pteresa to date him to make Jenny jealous so that she will notice him.[[note]]As it turns out, Jenny needed his help anyway to fix one of her hearing sensors.[[/note]] Sheldon ends up having to sell everything but his underwear at a GarageSale to pay Pteresa back. After Sheldon confesses to Jenny that he paid Pteresa to date him and make her jealous, A furious Jenny walks away from him. Sheldon tries to catch up with her, but his underwear gets caught in the front door, which ends up ripping it off and leaving him naked.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVZkRzP9TG8 But I am the Robot!]]"
* SubbingForSanta: "A Robot for All Seasons" begins with Jenny filling in for Santa Claus while he's in a full-body cast.
%%* SuicideAttack: The Horde in "Humiliation 101" uses this.
* SuperPrototype: Zig Zagged, [=XJ8=] is bigger and stronger than Jenny, despite being an earlier model, on the other hand, she's also [[UnskilledButStrong more reliant on smashing than thinking]] and doesn't have [[TelescopingRobot fifty guns attached to 50 other guns stuffed in her]].
* SuperStrength: "The strength of a million-and-seventy men," if the theme song is to be taken literally.
* [[SurprisinglyGoodEnglish Surprisingly Good Japanese]]: Jenny is voiced by Janice Kawaye, who is Japanese-American.
** One episode has Jenny lost her Language OS Disc, forcing her to speak Japanese for almost the whole episode.
* TelescopingRobot: Jenny does this for comedy mostly, with a stretchy neck and even pigtail-antenna (plus "stretchy arms and extendo-fingers", to which an entire episode was devoted), but can use her body as a combination GreenLanternRing and ShapeShifting.
** Quickly deconstructed as well, as she is unable to make her self smaller or thinner when the [[AlphaBitch Krust cousins]] come up with a social situation requiring it. (She settles for completely removing all her external armor, and decides to never do it again.)
%%* TemptingFate: So many, many times.
* ThatPoorPlant: "Girl of Steal"
--> '''Brad:''' It even reminds you to take a shower! I have mine set for once a week whether I need it or not!
--> [the plant Brad has just walked past keels over dead]
* ThemeTuneCameo: Jenny sings it in "Pajama Party Prankapalooza".
* The Fashionista: Brit and Tiff.
* ThereWasADoor "Daydream Believer" - Jenny rushes through a wall to rescue Tuck from a monster; he advises her she could've used the door.
* (Oil is) ThickerThanWater: Said word-for-word by Jenny's sisters in their first appearance when they help her after she is incapacitated.
** "But so much harder to clean out of the carpet!"
* ThickLineAnimation: Combined with a {{Retraux}} artstyle.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Killgore talks like this.
* [[ThroughAFaceFullOfFur Through a Face Full of Metal]]: Jenny often blushes.
* TitleThemeTune: The theme song has several mentions of "My life as a teenage robot".
* ToiletTeleportation: In "A Pain in my Sidekick" Tuck does this to escape the opera house blowing up.
--> ''I flushed myself down the toilet, like anyone would.''
* TooDumbToLive: Tucker in "Indes-Tuck-tible," and Jenny's tormentors Brit and Tiff pretty much all the time. See the above entry for BullyingADragon, and note that more than once, their schemes have backfired with extremely severe consequences.
* TookALevelInBadass: Sheldon was recruited by what we assume was the CIA in "Agent 00Sheldon", who promptly train him. [[spoiler:He violently resigns after he finds out they're enacting a thinly-veiled Patriot Act allegory]].
* TotallyRadical: "Phat", "Crib", "Badonkadonk"....yeah, this show was definitely made in the early 2000s. And since the show is set in the future, in-universe it's ''way'' past its expiration date.
** The trope is lampshaded to hell and back in the episode "Queen Bee". First Brit and Tiff make fun of Jenny's outdated slang, prompting her to learn some from a slang phrasebook from 1984. Then Queen Vexus shows up talking like she's from the 1920's and is immediately discovered and beaten by Jenny as a result. Moments later Brit and Tiff are trying to teach her to fit in and manage to rattle off every bit of slang they've ever said in about three lines of dialogue. It's quite cringeworthy and hilarious.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Semi-Averted for ''Escape from Cluster Prime'', [[SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer Vega]], or basically any footage Jenny having fun in Cluster Prime, wasn't featured, but we did get to see [[spoiler:a policeman taking off Jenny's superhero disguise, and all of Cluster Prime being alerted that Jenny was in their presence]]. To be honest though, we were expecting that to happen, so not a huge problem.
* TrulySingleParent: Dr. Wakeman created Jenny all by herself, though she does occasionally date to try and provide Jenny with a father figure.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The set year is never explicitly stated, but one episode mentions that Jenny, being built only 5 years prior, missed Super Bowl 100, which would be 2067 or later.
* UncannyValley: InUniverse, the first attempt to disguise Jenny as human was unnerving to pretty much everyone. She looked like a walking rag doll, and only the art style kept the reaction limited to those in the show.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Travis' dad seemed to be perfectly okay despite being maimed by factory machines in a flashback in "Weapons of Mass Distraction". They even say "he got better", dropping the former trope title. Potentially justified since we don't know how long ago the accident was.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: The Crust Cousins show up in different outfits on a regular basis.
* UnusualEuphemism: "Thank [Steve] Jobs!" was used once.
** "By the Great Cluster Hives! It's [=XJ9=]!"
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The show is about a robot packed with a huge arsenal of incredibly destructive gadgets/weapons attending a local high school. Other people in the show very rarely find this concept, or even Jenny herself, odd, even though she appears to be the only one around.
* UrineTrouble: In "Trade Show Showdown", a robotic dog lifts its leg after it gets annoyed with Jenny deriding it for not doing anything.
* VillainousBreakdown: In the episode "Trash Talk", it's apparent that Vexus has finally lost it after her constant defeats by Jenny. She attempts to blow up the asteroid she, Smytus, and Krackus are stranded on with the intent of escaping in a spaceship made of a coffee can that's too small to hold any of them, for one thing.
* VillainTeamUp: The episode "The Legion of Evil" has a group of various one-off antagonists returning to fight Jenny.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity:
** In spite of Killgore repeatedly going into diatribes on how evil he is, everyone finds him adorable, to the point that they get mad at Jenny when she tries to destroy him.
** Vexus in "Queen Bee", even AFTER the school finds out that she's a villain. [[spoiler:until Jenny mentions she's over 2000 years old.]]
* VisualPun: While on Cluster Prime, Jenny feeds a robotic squirrel by unscrewing a bolt from her palm: literally, "feeding from the palm of her hand."
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: Played straight and lampshaded.
* WasntThatFun: Frequently uttered by Tuck.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Krakus's inventions are prone to this. What do you do when a bunch of them drill beneath the road and boil the asphalt to glue you in place? Take off your shoes! [[FridgeLogic Apparently, bubbling hot asphalt has no affect on socks or bare feet.]]
** ''Doom With A View'' gives us an ambassador from Cluster Prime who is [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever freaking huge,]] [[FrickinLaserBeams armed to the teeth]] [[ComicallyMissingThePoint (or in this case, pincers)]], and [[FromASingleCell can reassemble his body after having it literally cut down]]. How do you beat such a tough opponent?
--> '''Tuck:''' ''(as he's filing his nails)'' You know, I learned all kinds of interesting things while I was [[spoiler:one with the robot.]] Here's one tiny tidbit: ''he's got an off button right on his back.''
* WeCanRuleTogether: Jenny gets repeated offers from Queen Vexus to join the Cluster and enslave the human race.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Jenny's effect on Tremorton high. Lampshaded hard in "Humiliation 101".
%%* WeWillMeetAgain
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Armegedroid is on a mission to destroy all "weaponry" (and then presumably himself when he's done - ''maybe''). Jenny doesn't have much of a problem with this, just that he's hurting people in the process.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse:
** The exo-suit is last seen taking over Mr. Mezmer at the end of "The Return of Raggedy Android". Mr. Mezmer is shown to be fine in later episodes, but it remains unknown what became of the exo-suit.
** What Happened to Melody?
* WhatTheHellHero: Brad's response when Jenny [[spoiler: wrongly]] tries to prove Melody is secretly evil. Also when she attacks one of two groups of alien visitors not realizing BeautyIsBad.
** And in "Escape From Cluster Prime" when everybody in Tremerton, ''including Dr. Wakeman'', calls her out for accidentally ruining a parade while stopping a bad guy. [[spoiler: It sets off her leaving for Cluster Prime in the first place.]]
** The entire town, ''again including Dr. Wakeman'' (though mercifully not Sheldon), does it again in the Christmas special where they all believe that she went rogue and started destroying holidays of her own volition. Brad, Tuck and Dr. Wakeman are even implied to have never ''investigated why she never came home the last day she remembers''.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Generally played straight, although it's usually only Jenny who has the power to invoke this trope at all in the show.
* WheelOfPain: When first informed about the Cluster, we see humans chained to this, apparently to power some kind of Ice Cream Parlor for robots.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Tuck wears a dress in "Labor Day".
--> '''Tuck:''' What? Can't a guy wear pearls and taffeta around here?
--> '''Nora:''' Strictly speaking, only after 6.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: One of Jenny's love interests had Phobia to Technology.
* WildTeenParty: A number of episodes deal with this trope. Most having Jenny try to
* WingdingEyes: Wisteria's glasses turn into mod and psychedelic symbols sometimes.
%%* WireDilemma: Subverted in "Escape From Cluster Prime".
%%* WrittenSoundEffect
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Himcules' speech pattern, which may or may not have been a calculated insult.
%%* YouAndWhatArmy
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Jenny. But she is a robot, so it is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] that her hair color would be unnatural.
%%* YouJustHadToSayIt
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Jenny looks and thinks like a teenager, but it's been pointed out she was born/made five years ago. In the episode "I Was a Preschool Dropout", she was even required to go to kindergarten because she's technically five years old, which she escapes on a technicality because she was ''designed'' to be a teenager.
* YourBrainWontBeMuchOfAMeal: The TropeNamer. It comes from the episode "Last Action Zero", where a brain-eating rock monster comments about Brad's brain after he accidentally gets himself and Jenny captured.
* YouWakeUpInARoom: "Enclosure of Doom" begin like this.
* {{Zeerust}}: This show is deliberately drawn in a very old fashioned 1930s futuristic way.
