- Cliché Storm: Though several of these cliches get subverted.
- Captain Obvious Aesop: Everything Radio Rebel teaches falls into this.
- Foe Yay: Tara and Stacy have some vibes, especially at the end.
Tara: [to Stacy] You are yourself and you've never been more beautiful.
- Fridge Logic: The principal (who by this point has been proved to be unlikable) cancels prom and the students get angry at Radio Rebel (who has done nothing but make them happier).
- Jerkass Woobie: Stacy, once it's shown just how important being Prom Queen is to her.
- The Woobie: When Tara looks like she's about to cry because she's getting so many calls about prom being canceled, it's really hard not to feel sorry for her. The puppy dog faces Debby Ryan makes when her character is supposed to be sad don't help.
