- Anvilicious: The detention scene in Rockett's Tricky Decision. Yes, Wolf DuBois and Jasper Movado have learning disabilities and that doesn't mean they're stupid, we get it.
- Veers into Some Anvils Need to be Dropped, especially when you remember the games were meant for middle schoolers.
- Gateway Series: The games were created for the express purpose of being this. Specifically, they were meant to attract girls to computer games, and thus to computers, at the age where many of them abandon their interest in science and technology.
- In Name Only: The Mattel games, especially Secret Paths to Your Dreams, which didn't even try to be a Secret Paths game.
- Internet Backdraft: Was it sexist to make games "just for girls," or is it sexist not to? This pops up in the comments whenever you see Purple Moon in an article of any sort, even today.
- Too Good to Last: The fandom lived on vibrantly even after the series was shut down, prompting Mattel to keep the website open for a while afterwards.
YMMV / Purple Moon
