* HighFiveLeftHanging: In ''Next Class'' episode "#WorstGiftEver", Winston offers Goldi a high five during a game of charades, but she turns it down, saying it's against her religion to touch boys.


* TookALevelInJerkass: Emma starting in Season 4 ("What will people think of me if Chris goes out with Liberty next?"). Many fans consider this moment to be the turning point of Emma's character and when her JerkSue colors first really started to shine.

%** Manny is probably the biggest example of this, followed by Fiona. As she left the series, she's a GoodBadGirl, which makes her earlier scenes in the show look really strange. Fiona was a FlatCharacter who was bat-shit insane in season 9, and in season 11 she's much more well-rounded and really only kept the loneliness part of her season 9 quirk. As a matter of fact, Fiona and Declan seemingly switched personalities mid-season. When first introduced, Fiona was the friendly new girl and Declan was the arrogant bad boy. Mid-season Declan had somehow become socially popular and Fiona had somehow become a stuck-up bitch.
%** It's a bit jarring that Shay sent nudes for money, bullied Arlene for being geeky, and made a move on a taken man compared to her characterization in Next Class, where she is the nerdiest girl aside from Yael, and very shy about boys and sex.
%** Tiny is much more of a NiceGuy compared to his characterization in TNG.
%** Grace looses her savvy TricksterMentor persona in Next Class, appearing much more withdrawn and passive.

** Degrassi itself goes from a bright, lauded, high-tech school to being something closer to the Lakehurst of earlier seasons, with a police presence, a bullying problem and a bad reputation among the community due to years of its drama.


After 14 seasons, ''The Next Generation'' was cancelled by Nickelodeon/[=TeenNick=]. When Creator/DHXMedia bought Epitome, Creator/FamilyChannel and Netflix continued the show with ''[[NewSeasonNewName Degrassi: Next Class]]'' in 2016, which starred many of the newer characters introduced through seasons 11-14, making it the first season where no main character had a link with either the 1980s cast or the original ''Next Generation'' cast. After a lengthy hiatus throughout 2017 and 2018, [[https://twitter.com/KaryDegrassi/status/1035718720851730432 Stefan Brogen confirmed]] that the show is over, though a future incarnation could always happen. While it is important to note Netflix has not confirmed any cancellation of the series, one thing is clear: This series, ''Degrassi; The Next Generation'', is done after 16 years.

** Another one often referenced is from the Season 7 episode "Talking in Your Sleep". Paige ends up sleeping with Griffin. Later she finds out he has HIV. She gets tested and is told by doctors that she won't know the results for 6 months. Griffin unceremoniously disappears from the show shortly after this revelation when Paige reveals she is moving out, and there is never any follow-up on Paige's results. Actress Lauren Collins who played Paige has referenced this plothole jokingly a few times on her Twitter.

[[note]]Griffin was on several HIV drugs as said on the show, all meant to decrease HIV infection (though they don't stop HIV transmission, and this was several years before the breakthrough of pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP which greatly reduces the risk of transmission). He also used a condom, which is greatly preventive in stopping the risk of HIV and other STDS so most likely, Paige does not have HIV.[[/note]]
