Go To

  • Acting for Two:
    • Alex Hirsch provides the voices for King and Hooty.
    • Eden Riegel mainly voices Boscha, but has also voiced Amelia and Bo.
    • As of Season 2, Sarah Nicole Robles voices both Luz and Vee when impersonating Luz.
    • Also in season 2, Zeno Robinson voices both the Golden Guard/Hunter and Derwin.
    • If there is an incidental voice in the series, expect it do be Grey Griffin or Matt Chapman.
  • Actor-Shared Background:
    • Sarah Nicole Robles is Latina, like Luz, who she voices. Similarly both Camila Noceda and her voice actress Elizabeth Grullon are Dominican.
    • Advertisement:
    • Gus, who is Black, is voiced by Issac Ryan Brown, who is also Black.
    • Tati Gabrielle, who is part Black and part Korean, voices Willow. Willow's dads appear to be Black and Asian, and her last name, Park, is a very common Korean last name. Thus, it's very likely that Willow is Black and Korean.
  • Adored by the Network:
    • Like many recent Disney shows, it was renewed for season 2 before the show even premiered. It's also gotten plenty of advertisement.
    • It was also renewed for a third season before season 2 premiered, similarly to Tangled: The Series, DuckTales (2017), Big Hero 6: The Series, and Amphibia. Unfortunately, as mentioned down below, it was announced as the final season at the same time and a very short one at that.
  • Ascended Fanon: Many fans pointed out that Luz has several signs of ADHD. Dana Terrace eventually responded that she didn't intend this, but now considers it canon.
  • Bowdlerise:
      Advertisement:
    • The version of "Understanding Willow" that airs on Disney Channel's Southeast Asia feed in countries like the Philippines and Thailand blurs the photo of Willow's two dads.
    • "Enchanted Grom Fright" is a zigzagged example, also from Southeast Asia. While they censor a scene of a gay couple dancing, they don't censor the scene of Luz and Amity dancing or the latter's letter to the former saying she likes her, both of which remain fully intact.
    • In the Taiwanese dub of "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", the scene where Amity kisses Luz on the cheek is entirely omitted, instead cutting straight to Edric and Emira glancing at them through the window and then the episode just ends.
  • Character-Specific Pages:
  • Content Leak:
    • "Really Small Problems", with Russian credits, was leaked hours before its intended airing.
    • Advertisement:
    • The first two episodes of season two, "Separate Tides" and "Escaping Expulsion" were leaked onto YouTube following the early screening, a full week before the first one was supposed to air normally and two before the second was.
    • Days after "Hunting Palismen" aired, a Deleted Scene from that very episode was leaked online by a crew member.
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: Disney+ lists the show as an Anime; while Animesque, this show is not an anime.
  • Creator Backlash: Dana Terrace spoke out against Disney TVA for delaying Amphibia's Season 2 finale, which ended up online anyway due to not being delayed anywhere else.
    Dana Terrace: Disney did Amphibia dirty. The crew deserved to celebrate their incredible work and the fans deserved a thrilling finale. This whole situation screams of cowardice and incompetence. "Won't you get in trouble for saying that?" doesn’t matter, who cares, it's been a year of loss and I wanted to watch my friend's finale. Please show Radrappy and the Amphibia crew some love.
  • Creator's Favorite Episode:
    • "Adventures In The Elements" is the favorite episode that Sabrina Cotungo directed.
    • Sam Bosnam (a background layout artist for this show) and Catherine Harman (story artist) have stated that "Enchanting Grom Fright" is their favorite episode by far. Outside of them, much of the crew spent the week prior to its release hyping this episode way more than they did with any others.
  • Credits Pushback: Sadly, this show suffered this since episode one by interspersing the credits with the last seconds of the show causing both the outro and credits music to be removed. First time viewers may be caught off guard by this. Check out an example from one of their broadcasts. If you're feeling adventurous, click here to join Luz on a 30-second tour of the Boiling Isles.
  • The Danza: Principal Bump is voiced by Bumper Robinson.
  • Dawson Casting:
    • Sarah Nicole Robles, according to her IMDB page, was born in 1990, whereas Luz (the character Sarah voices) is 14.
    • Mae Whitman (Amity's VA) is in her 30s in real life, while Amity is possibly around 14-15 In-Universe.
    • Tati Gabrielle is in her 20s currently while Willow is 14-15.
    • Dana Terrace said in an AMA that Eda is in her 40s and later episodes revealing she's actually younger than her sister Lilith, though Dana says it's only by about 2 years, her voice actress, Wendie Malick, is almost 70.
    • A lighter example: Augustus "Gus" Porter is 12, while his voice actor Issac Ryan Brown is 15.
    • The Golden Guard is 16 years old but his voice actor Zeno Robinson is 27.
    • "Echoes of the Past" confirms King is 8 years old, Alex Hirsch is 36.
  • Dear Negative Reader: Dana Terrace has liked Twitter posts accusing the show of promoting witchcraft and demonic worship as well as posts decrying the show for confirming that Luz and Amity have a budding romance going on in order to troll them, which she readily admits in her Reddit AMA.
  • Demand Overload: When the second season premiere was added to Disney NOW, the service displayed error messages as a result of too many people trying to watch it.
  • Descended Creator: The redheaded conspiracy theorist is voiced by - and modeled after - Dana Terrace herself. She also did King's "squeak of rage" and voiced his younger self in "Echoes of the Past".
  • Development Gag:
    • Amity's bunny lunch bag in "Lost in Language" likely came from her holding a plush bunny in the storyboard version of "Understanding Willow".
    • In a picture at the Noceda home shown in "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", Camila is wearing a similar shirt to Luz's outfit in the pilot.
    • Also from the pilot, Luz slaps the Golden Guard awake after leaning in like she's going to kiss him, similarly to the sleeping prince scene.
    • When Luz confronts Vee in "Yesterday's Lie", Vee had just picked out a striped shirt similar to Luz' pilot outfit, and she later picks up a baseball bat resembling the one Luz wields in "beta" concept art.
  • Diagnosis of God: Luz was confirmed by series creator Dana Terrace to be neurodivergent during a Tumblr AMA, though she wasn't written with any particular disorder in mind. A later interview would canonize the fan theory that she had ADHD.
  • Early-Bird Release: The first two episodes of Season 2 were screened at The Paley Center on June 5th; a week before the official Season 2 premiere on television. The Paley Center begged fans not to leak or spoil anything, but a lot of the fans didn't listen and posted spoilers anyways.
  • Edited for Syndication:
    • The photos of Willow's dads in "Understanding Willow" were censored in Southeast Asia so that they're blurred over.
    • "Enchanted Grom Fright" is a zigzagged example, also from Southeast Asia. While they censor a scene of a gay couple dancing, they don't censor the scene of Luz and Amity dancing or the latter's letter to the former saying she likes her. That part is kept intact.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Eda is called "Owl Mom" by basically the entire fandom.
    • Calling Amity "Gay Tomato" is pretty popular amongst the fandom.
    • An example of a character who got a fan nickname before their official reveal, though more of a case of "crew name adopted by the fans": When Luz's voice actress mentioned "Creepy Luz" in an interview, fans began using the term as a hypothetical doppleganger of Luz. In a later AMA, Dana claimed that "Creepy Luz" in that interview was just a joke referring to Luz's behavior in the Season 1 episode "The First Day"... only for "Keeping Up A-fear-ances" to reveal that Creepy Luz does in fact exist in canon, and the name was adopted for her immediately. Although once "Creepy Luz" was properly introduced in "Yesterday's Lie", fans quickly began retracting that nickname. Mainly thanks to many of them finding out that the impostor was Good All Along and absolutely adorable.
  • He Also Did:
  • I Knew It!:
    • Much of the fandom noticed pretty quickly that Amity's hair color doesn't match that of her siblings, and had theorized that she dyes her hair green in other in fit in with the rest of her family. "Understanding Willow" reveals this to be the case. That same episode also confirmed the theory that Amity and Willow's friendship ended because the former's parents forced her to.
    • Quite a few people correctly guessed that Lilith is responsible for Eda's curse.
    • Once it was announced in July 2020 that season 2 would feature a character named Gwendolyn, many fans correctly predicted said character is Eda and Lilith's mother.
    • Many fans had developed a Fanon that between the two of them, Odalia was the worse Blight parent. "Escaping Expulsion" confirms this.
    • Quite a few people called that Creepy Luz is real, which was confirmed in "Keeping Up A-Fear-ances".
    • From the same episode as above, many fans correctly guessed that Lilith gained a Raven-Beast form due to the curse.
    • A good number of fans have correctly guessed that Eda and Raine were exes and have dated in the past. Though it wasn't until the latter's second appearance that it was revealed.
