YMMV / Bratz

The dolls themselves:

  • Deader Than Disco: In the early 2000's this doll line was huge. Now it's virtually dead and nearly forgotten. Even the 2015 version is selling poorly.
  • Snark Bait: The hilariously made-up sounding names most of the dolls have. You'll pray that no real-life little girl has them.

The movie contains examples of:

Bratz in general contains examples of:

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Most parodies of these dolls portray the girls as tramps/man-eaters/outright prostitutes.
  • Audience-Alienating Premise: Most of the things associated with the Rock Angelz movie and doll-line, the CD included some pretty great songs (Nobody's Girl and So Good) and the video game (also mentioned below).
  • Broken Aesop: The Bratz will often encourage people to be themselves...right after they give them a make-over, that is.
  • Continuity Lock-Out: If you want to watch any of the videos, you better start out with the first two (Rock Angelz and Genie Magic) as those two have callbacks to later events and Genie has a sequel called Desert Jewelz. The only ones you don't need to worry are the 2D ones and the Babyz (Super Babyz and Saves Christmas) and Kidz spinoffs. The former because they're a different continuity and the latter, while still the same canon as the CGI ones, don't really have a strong continuity.
  • Creator's Pet: There is a reason the word Closmin exists. MGA's ability to create lines with only Cloe and Yasmin and if not create clones, nicknamed Closmin clones, who are Cloe and Yasmin in all but name.
    • Supposedly the preference for Yasmin is because the name and appearance of the doll is based on the creator's daughter.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Bratz versus Barbie and Bratzillaz versus Monster High. Now that the latter has a fairy tale spinoff, woe betide those on the MGA side of the war should they make their own...
  • Fanon Discontinuity: For some fans, Bratz are not back.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: The book Will Work For Fashion has Cloe getting a job to buy a dress she wants to wear to her first art gala. This is treated like the worst thing any teenager has ever done because she isn't spending every moment with her 'friends'.
    • The same book has Cloe (Working in a cosmetics shop) mix and match make up of different sorts without her boss' permission. When her boss finds out and fires her, he's treated as the villain.
    • If we speak of Bratz Rock Angelz, there's Jade saying that if someone was mean to you, don't get mad, just get back at them. And that's not all; they keep talking about how Burdine is going down and how much revenge they are going to commit against her. Sure, she was really mean to Jade at the beginning of the film, but she didn't deserve that much backlash. It makes the Bratz look like revenge-hungry Designated Heroes who refuse to be nice to their opponents (like most child-centered media encourage children to be) who didn't do anything really that criminal to begin with.
  • Memetic Mutation: LEGGINS.
  • Moe: Bratz Babyz and Bratz Kidz.
  • Moment of Awesome: And yes, Bratz Are Back
  • So Bad, It's Good: This new 2010 song is like listening to a train crash in slow motion with teenybopper lyrics.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: A series of video games based around Bratz were eventually introduced. All of these games used the exact same engine and gameplay, had painfully forced tutorials, poor graphics and terrible controls.
  • Squick: One of the extra clothes one could buy for the Babyz was a small bikini.
  • Uncanny Valley: A large possible factor in why the direct-to-DVD movies and TV show never got very popular: the characters look downright horrifying in CGI.
  • We're Still Relevant, Dammit: Jade's favorite music is listed as Gwen Stefani, in 2012.
    • Well, it's been listed as that as far back as 2005.
    • The 2015 reboot of the dolls has hashtags and selfies as a theme. Even former hardcore fans of the franchise don't think it's going to last.
