The dolls themselves:
- Deader Than Disco: In the early 2000's this doll line was huge. Now it's virtually dead and nearly forgotten.
The movie contains examples of:
- Canon Sue: The Bratz.
- Ear Worm: BRA-TI-TUUUUDDEEEE!
- From the soundtrack: Prima J's "Rock Star".
- Ham and Cheese: Chelsea Staub just knew this was a bad movie. So she had a lot of fun with being a Alpha Bitch.
- Narm: The song My Life by the Slumber Party Girls from the soundtrack is a rock song about it being the singers life and doing whatever she wants... like going to school and learning stuff she really cares about.
- National Stereotypes: Mexicans have mariachi bands living with them. Bratz: The Movie said so.
- Retroactive Recognition: Nathalia Ramos (Nina) plays Yasmin.
- Squick: The fact that the AlphaBitch's eleven year old sister is being hit on by a high school aged boy.
- Unnecessary Makeover: It's a Bratz movie, for goodness sake!.
Bratz in general contains examples of:
- Alternate 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.
- 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.
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: And yes, Bratz Are Back
- 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.
- So Bad, It's Good: This new 2010 song is like listening to a train crash in slow motion with teenybopper lyrics.
- 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.
