10 Hours Left to Support a Troper-Created Project : Personal Space (discuss)

YMMV / Totally Spies!

  • And of course, we can't forget about Shirley and Carla Wong aka Lady Dragon!
  • Foe Romance Subtext: Geraldine Husk's obsession with Clover can often reach Stalker with a Crush levels. Most notably the episode Super Agent Much.
  • Foe Yay Shipping: Sam and recurring villain Tim Scam also seems to be a popular ship among the fans, given that it takes up a good chunk of the Totally Spies archive on FF.net.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Jerry is balding, yet his twin brother Terrance isn't. Could it be his guilt over what he did to his brother made him bald quicker?
    • Or maybe Terry just had transplants, or could be wearing a toupee or wig.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: "Space Much?" features an asteroid about to crash down in Moscow. In 2013, the Chelyabinsk meteor exploded in Russia.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Jerry gets a computer assistant name Gladis in the third season. Wait, why does that sound familiar? And she turns evil in one episode, almost furthering the resemblance.
    • The names are even spelled in similar ways. Are you sure someone on the team wasn't a fan of the show?
  • Les Yay:
    • Alex refers to a "super-hot model". The model is female.
    • Sam and Mandy in "Eraser".
    • Out of the main girls, Alex seems to show the most affection toward Sam, even having an Affectionate Nickname for her; Sammy.
  • Memetic Mutation: The scene where Clover bounces a laser between two mirrors, and uses those lasers to melt a door. This lead to comments about how physics don't work that way, or asking why she just didn't use the original laser in the first place.
  • Narm: Just try to take Muffy Peprich from "Evil Sorority" seriously as a villain when she makes threats in a scratchy, high-pitched voice.
  • One True Threesome: Sam/Alex/Clover ship. It doesn't help that most of the boys the three are interested in tend to be one-shots, bar their fellow spy Blaine.
  • Paranoia Fuel: WOOHP can get the girls from anywhere.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Several of them. Two games on Game Boy Advance, three on Nintendo DS, and a party game for the Playstation 2. None of them were all that great.
  • The Scrappy: GLADIS—she was written out of the series almost entirely due to fan complaints!
  • Testosterone Brigade: When a female-targeted kids' show has Fanservice as much as this one does, it's inevitable.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The voice actors for the English dub being replaced with sound-alike Canadians has been somewhat controversial.
  • The Woobie:
    • Alex in "Alex Gets Schooled," where her parents send her to a British boarding school where she is bullied and eventually turned into a dolphin monster. This was all because of her supposed bad grades, only for it to turn out that it was a mix-up the whole time. Also, in "Boy Bands Will Be Boy Bands," where her favorite singer ends up betraying her and forcing her to switch faces with his hag of a manager, as well as the b-plot involving Mandy bullying her.
      • A general one for poor Alex if the Alternate Character Interpretation above is correct; she has such low self-confidence that she automatically assumes that it's only a matter of time before Sam and Clover decide they'd rather have the more capable Britney and kick her to the curb.
    • Clover in "Matchmaker," she actually breaks down crying after Sam and Alex turn on her.
