Compare to Creator/JennetteMcCurdy, who happens to be one of Ryan's closest friends in RealLife. Not to be confused with Creator/DemiLovato - which is actually something that tends to happen a lot. All subjective tropes go in the [[YMMV/DebbyRyan YMMV tab]].

* BuxomIsBetter: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. Many detractors joke that this is the real reason why Debby got her own show in the absence of any apparent talent, and it likely inspired ''Cracked.com'' to come up with [[http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/2/0/8/159208_v1.jpg this image]].
* TheCastShowoff: She likes to sing in almost everything she's done.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: ''Have you been to her Twitter page?''
* CountryMouse: Her two most famous roles are a farm girl from Kansas and a girl from rural Texas. Also, she's originally from Alabama (and grew up in Texas, too). Not played entirely straight, though.
* CoverVersion: Of "We Got the Beat" by The Go-Go's for ''Film/RadioRebel''.

"We Got the Beat" by The Go-Go's for ''Film/RadioRebel''.



* DarkerAndEdgier: Her cover of "Superstition" - up to that point all of her songs have been bubbly pop songs, and even TheCoverChangesTheMeaning rendition of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" was still a SofterAndSlowerCover version of a pop song.
** Arguably ''Jessie''. Both the character and the show itself are a little more "grown up" compared to ''Suite Life On Deck" and Disney Channel fare in general.

* FanService: As shown above, SheCleansUpNicely (and isn't bad in casual wear, either).
* HiddenDepths: Her roles outside the DisneyChannel.
** Her music. People were legitimately shocked that she's capable of more than the typical Disney-mandated throwaway pop song.
* IdolSinger: So far, she sang "[[Disney/TheLionKing Hakuna Matata]]" for Disney Mania 7, "A Wish Comes True Every Day" and "Open Eyes" for ''16 Wishes'', and the theme song for her show ''Series/{{Jessie}}''.
** Potentially averted since she says she typically refuses record-signing deals because she wants to remain independent as a vocal artist.
** She is, as of 2015, the lead singer for alternative folk-rock band The Never Ending, but has still preferred to distribute their music independently/electronically.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Creator/RowanBlanchard, from the looks of Debby's {{Twitter}} feed.



* MilitaryBrat: She [[ActorAllusion alludes to this]] in ''Series/{{Jessie}}''.
* MistakenIdentity: An entertainment news show once mistook her for Music/DemiLovato.



** Apparently, despite having been in television roles since before being a teenager, Debby's still this in RealLife, too.



* SpiritualSuccessor: To Creator/AnneHathaway, to some extent.

Added DiffLines:

** Herself with her band The Neverending, pretty much amounting to a complete transformation. "Superstition" as it turned out was a preview of this "new" post-Disney Debby. In many ways parallels the transformation of fellow KidCom actresses-turned-musicians Creator/ArianaGrande and (a softer version of) Creator/MileyCyrus.
