- Actor Allusion:
- Rapunzel in Tangled starts out with long blonde hair but ends up as a short haired brunette. Much like Mandy herself in real life for a time.
- In an episode of This Is Us Randall and Rebecca say "I love you", "I love you more" and "I love you most" - something that Rapunzel and Gothel say to each other in Tangled.
- Actor-Inspired Element:
- She was a fan of Switchfoot and persuaded producers of A Walk to Remember to use some of their music in the film.
- For How To Deal she felt her character should have a short haircut. Producers weren't happy but they came up with a compromise; she would wear hair extensions for the first half and then get an Important Haircut.
- As Himself: She briefly appears on an episode of Becoming, which features a fan of hers remaking the video for "Candy".
- Big Name Fan: Strange as it may sound, Mandy is this for Outsider Musician Jandek.
- Creator Breakdown: Wild Hope seems to come from a horrific break up for her.
- Creator Backlash: Loathes her earlier pop work (which makes Old Shame way too kind a description).
- Dawson Casting: Averted for The Princess Diaries and A Walk to Remember, as she was still a teenager.
- Dye Hard: Frequently alternates between blonde and brown hair.
- Dyeing for Your Art: Cut her hair short for the films Try Seventeen and How To Deal.
- Follow the Leader: was cast in the Idol Singer mold so popular in the late 90s, just in time to catch the Hype Backlash.
- Name's the Same: Shared with an applicant on So You Think You Can Dance.
- Old Shame: has offered to refund the money of anyone who bought her first two albums. Lived up to it during a radio interview in '06. Yup, that's just how much she hated them.
- The Other Darrin: She voiced Aerith in Kingdom Hearts I. Mena Suvari replaced her for Kingdom Hearts II and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, and was in turn replaced by Andrea Bowen for the remainder of the compilation. This becomes especially amusing when a world based on Tangled is in Kingdom Hearts III, with Mandy returning as Rapunzel rather than Aerith.
- The Other Marty: She filmed scenes playing Jenny in the film Cursed but she was replaced with Mya.
- Playing Gertrude: In This Is Us she is four years younger than her on screen daughter Chrissy Metz.
- Playing Against Type: In The Princess Diaries she plays the Alpha Bitch.
- Promoted Fangirl: Wanted to voice a Disney character from a young age. Needless to say she was ecstatic when she was cast as Rapunzel in Tangled.
- Real-Life Relative: One of her brothers appears in her video for "Candy".
- Romance on the Set: She appeared on two episodes of Scrubs while she was dating Zach Braff.
- You Look Familiar: She voiced Aerith from Final Fantasy VII in Kingdom Hearts I. She returns in Kingdom Hearts III now voicing Rapunzel.
