- Ear Worm: Candy, So Real, I Wanna Be With You, In My Pocket, Someday We'll Know.
- Growing the Beard: "Coverage" is her experimenting with her own style of music.
- Even "Mandy Moore," the last of her teen pop albums, was noted by many as actually being pretty good itself, and noticeably more mature than her first two albums.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: She briefly voiced Aerith in Kingdom Hearts before being replaced - and looks set to get right back in, having voiced a Disney princess; with that princess's world set to appear in Kingdom Hearts III, the idea of Moore reprising the role of both Aerith and Rapunzel for the game may not be far off.
- She Really Can Act: Her performances in Saved! and A Walk to Remember garnered her a lot of praise for her acting ability and that maybe she was far more talented than she appeared than her peers. Her role on This Is Us was so praised that it netted her a Golden Globe nomination.
