Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Charmed is a show that ran from 1998-2006, wherein three San Francisco-based girl-power witch sisters vanquish demons through the triple powers of CGI, rhymes, and lots of cleavage, whilst dealing with personal relationship drama. The show was created by Constance M Burge, inspired by the cult 90s film The Craft. Having trouble getting networks to pick up the witchcraft concept, she made the characters sisters and the show was greenlit.Charmed can be divided into two sets of seasons. Seasons 1-3 are the 'Prue Years' featuring Shannen Doherty as the eldest Halliwell sister Prue. Doherty left the show after that season and Rose McGowan was cast as sister Paige for seasons 4-8. The other two sisters were played by Former Child Star Alyssa Milano (who helped carve out a successful career as an adult actress thanks to Charmed) and Picket Fences actress Holly Marie Combs. Other cast members included a pre-Nip/Tuck Julian McMahon and a pre-The Big Bang Theory Kaley Cuoco.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A pretty successful show, Charmed ran for eight seasons and for a while was the longest running network TV show with female leads - until Desperate Housewives caught up to it. The show is also known for its quite surprising tonal shifts between seasons - compare Season 2's slow-paced Slice of Life plots to Season 3's action-packed arc-based story telling - the sisters' clothing getting Hotter and Sexier with each year and quite a few continuity issues - just how many times was Penny Halliwell married anyway?note The final answer seems to be four, but one episode said six, and it later got clarified to four marriages and six engagements.The series successfully returned in comic book form in 2010 thanks to company Zenescope, receiving mixed to positive reviews from fans and critics alike. As with anything 90s and successful, talks of a reboot existed since 2013 until finally a new Charmed series began airing in 2018.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })

Banishing Ritual
 Charmed (1998) / int_111ba5f1
comment
Banishing Ritual: The show referred to this process as "vanquishing". The Halliwell sisters almost always had a spell to send demons away. In one episode, this was reversed, and in another, a demon threatens to manifest anyways and is told that there's "dead" and then there's Dead.

comment
First Law of Resurrection: Oh boy. Over the course of 8 seasons, Piper and Phoebe die 9 times each. Paige reaches the same number of deaths within just 5 seasons and Prue has 3 deaths to show. And of course, being the main characters, they all get better. Well, except for Prue at the end of season 3.

Arbitrary Skepticism: The sisters have a bad habit of scoffing at anything they haven't encountered. Subverted in "Once Upon a Time". Piper expresses disbelief over fairies and trolls, but her skepticism turns out to be based on her frustration with the Elders taking Leo away.

comment
Expendable Clone: Subverted in "Which Prue is it Anyway?": Prue's clones are skewed towards her "fun side" and "businesslike side", but each one of them has all of Prue's abilities and memories. They are used as expendable decoys when the villain kills them, but Prue experiences every excruciating moment of their death, and feels like she's dying herself.

My Grandson Myself
 Charmed (1998) / int_157c6c4f
comment
My Grandson Myself: Leo died in WWII before being resurrected as a whitelighter. When Piper somehow receives an invitation to a reunion for his unit, she convinces him to attend, passing him off as his own Identical Grandson. Though it's the only time they bother with the ruse. Even when Dan is digging around in Leo's past (and for whatever reason thinks a marriage certificate dated in the 1930s is a red flag for Piper's relationship with her twenty-something boyfriend), she doesn't bother telling him anything other than "I know what I'm doing."

Eiffel Tower Effect: There are many many shots of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Transamerica Pyramid, just to remind you that yes, the show is set in San Francisco. In fact, the episodes usually start off with some shots of San-Fran in the morning after the opening credits and then with some night-time ones much later for the "final thought" at the end.

Magical Database: The Book of Shadows is a magical tome the girls inherited which conveniently has listings for whatever monster they might be fighting that week, along with the appropriate counterspells to use. Justified though because of the generations of witches before them adding all they could to the book and the sisters adding to it themselves.

Billie can only be twenty at the oldest, and has already mastered her powers and developed a scrying system by hooking crystals up to her computer. All from reading a few books. This is lampshaded by Piper, who suspects that Billie may have got help from demons at first. It gets a hand wave later when Billie's mother reveals that her family line is of witches and she was just a Muggle Born of Mages.

While Cole and Leo were both fairly developed and well-rounded characters, the pure Mr. Fanservice would have been Dan from Season 2. Hunky former baseball player turned handyman next door, he seemed to only exist to stand around in tank tops and be that nice guy that Piper saw as her perfect life that she couldn't have with Leo at that point.

Forgotten Phlebotinum: The spirit board, which was used for all of three episodes before disappearing in season three until it finally resurfaced for one last use in season 8, and the numerous spells from the Book of Shadows that would be incredibly useful in practically every situation, but are never used, such as the truth spell, which forces others to answer questions truthfully (this may be intentional), evil-detecting glasses, spell to multiply powers (which also clones the caster), spell to hear hidden thoughts, and many more.

Playing with Fire: Fire is seen as a mostly evil power, so most of the characters who get fire based powers are evil: fireball-throwing demons, Phoebe both in her evil past life and influenced by her demon baby, Evil Future Wyatt, Kali (who lends it to Aviva), Christy, The Source, and so on. There are good characters who use fire powers though, like the witch in the pilot and the firestarter kid.

Overly Narrow Superlative: In "The Courtship of Wyatt's Father," Paige refers to Chris as "one of my two favorite nephews." At this point in her life, she only knows she has two nephews (and Chris himself hasn't even been conceived yet).

Alice Allusion
 Charmed (1998) / int_1da3a484
comment
Alice Allusion: In the season 8 episode of Charmed "Malice in Wonderland" teenagers, all of whom are named with some variation of the name “Alice” (Alicia, Alexis, Alistair) are being lured down a manhole by a demon, who either shape-shifted into a white rabbit or was wearing a t-shirt with a white rabbit on it inviting them to a garden party and telling them they are very late. They turn up later with no memory and appear to have gone insane from the Wonderland-inspired illusions they experienced “down the rabbit hole”. The demon was actually invoking this; she didn't believe the Charmed Ones were actually dead, and she knew they couldn't resist investigating something so obvious.

The Quiet One
 Charmed (1998) / int_1da5941e
comment
The most dramatic example is Piper, who in the first two seasons was the quiet, shy, mousy middle sister content to fade into the background while Prue and Phoebe took center stage. During Season 3, and especially into Season 4, circumstances, including the death of Prue and her acquiring a newer, much more aggressive power, she was forced to adopt a no-nonsense, take-charge attitude about things and become the matriarch of the family. She never got over her desire for a normal, magic-free life, but she became much more adaptable to the perpetual crises the family faced.

Take Our Word for It: In season 5, Phoebe becomes a successful advice columnist, has her own billboard ads, gives radio interviews and is generally said to be really funny. Of course the audience never hears more than a single sentence from her columns. She also ends up sleeping with the boss. We got a little insight when Phoebe first got the job. The person wrote in saying she was still living with her parents and was afraid of living alone. Phoebe's response, which seemed like something of an Ass Pull, was that she should get a dog for a companion. The previous columnist praised this for being proactive (it actually got her out of the house) and for being nonjudgemental. Both her (and Piper's) response was simply "Get a therapist, and get a life." The columnist said hers was better and handed the job over, so she must have done something right.

Crapsack World: Whether you are born powerless and easy prey for demons and warlocks, with good powers but often too weak to be useful and are targeted by same demons and warlocks, with bad powers that are useful but with no real choice but to be evil or find a way to get rid of your powers, or are born with strong good powers like the Charmed Ones, earning you constant assassination attempts by the various forces of evil for the rest of your life. You lose regardless, with the temporary exception of the Charmed Ones who still lost a sister to even achieve a temporary truce.

Adaptation Expansion

Adaptation Expansion: So far the comic book series is definitely a good example of this, in fact it seems to have taken a 5 year Time Skip and has continued with the foreshadowing of the final season. This is helped by the fact that three of the original writers of the TV series were hired on by Zenoscope to continue the story. It's also helpful that a few of the first draft scripts for season 9 were recovered and part of those stories are being used to recreate the feel of the TV show.

Aborted Arc: Season 8 got rid of the subplot of the sisters faking their deaths by having them exposed to the government, which was also neglected as a plot line. The government discovered that the sisters were witches and they offered to help cover up their faked deaths as a Homeland Security mission if they came to work for them. They spent a couple episodes performing a few missions for them and, despite the collaboration being extremely successful, they parted ways due to the sisters apparently being too hard to work with and the government's knowledge of the magical world is never acknowledged again.

Generation Xerox: It's implied in the last episode that Chris and Wyatt are going to follow in the footsteps of their parents and aunts. So much potential spin-off material wasted... Piper with her mother, right down to the ability to freeze people and the forbidden romance with a Whitelighter. This actually comes up as a plot-point in the Season 5 opener, when Piper realises the similarities between herself and her mother after getting pregnant, and becomes afraid that she will die young and leave her family (particularly her child) behind.

Funny Background Event: In the episode "Careful What You Witch For," when Phoebe is given the power of flight that she can barely control, there's a scene with Piper and Leo in the attic making a plan... while Phoebe repeatedly flies by outside, calling for help.

Evil Power Vacuum: The Charmed Ones are rather good at bringing about the death of whichever leader the underworld has, so several times demons scramble around trying to consolidate power and allies in order to become the new leader.

Halloween Episode

comment
Halloween Episode: Two, but neither one has an A-plot relating to the holiday. The season 3 episode All Halliwell's Eve has a B-plot where a couple of demons come back to life due to the holiday in question, but is otherwise a Time-Travel Episode. The season 8 Kill Billie: Vol 1 has no plot relating to the holiday at all and just happens to take place on Halloween.

Lampshade Hanging
 Charmed (1998) / int_2a090d00
comment
Even Leo himself wasn't innocent of this trope. He had to solve the overarching crisis of season 6 by killing his mentor in cold blood, which he himself acknowledged was "a great evil". Later he became part of a cult of reality warpers in season 7 and eventually convinced the sisters to help them get their way thinking it would lead to demon-free lives, only stopping when the demon who would become the show's most dangerous Big Bad had to educate him that this meant the elimination of free will. Oh, and a throwaway subplot in a season 8 episode reveals that he'd even stopped being above such things as capturing perceived enemies, holding them prisoner, and getting magic students to use them as crash test dummies, without even adding context to justify this torture beyond the victims being demons.

Give Me a Sign: The titular episode has Phoebe cast a spell to help Piper choose between Dan and Leo, which comes in the form of a whole lot of little coincidences that pop up throughout the day. It turns out that those signs were supposed to help them find Prue, who had been kidnapped by Bane earlier.

Combo Platter Powers
 Charmed (1998) / int_2c9ef8f7
comment
Combo Platter Powers: Typically a Warren/Halliwell witch will inherit one of Melinda Warren's three original powers; telekinesis, molecular immobilization or premonition. From these powers new powers that are in some way connected to the original can develop. This includes a telekinetic developing astral projection because the idea of movement is carried over. Or a witch with the freezing power being able to blow things up because the power is about molecular speed. Or a precognitive witch developing other psychic powers. However, Melinda herself had all three powers, all of which are unrelated to each other. This is presumably because she was the progenitor of her witchly line.

Everybody Hates Hades
 Charmed (1998) / int_2cfee88
comment
Everybody Hates Hades The show never used Hades (except for a rather dishonorable mention as the father of the demon Nikos in the novel), but Hecate, another underworld god, came off particularly badly, being turned into a demon. (Way to go, have witches fight the patron of witches.) Yama also got this treatment, becoming the totally amoral gatekeeper of Chinese hell who tried to snatch whatever spirits were not "properly buried" and drag them to hell, regardless of whether they were good or evil. The Angel of Death on the other hand, is portrayed more or less sympathetically, especially during his first appearance.

Sadly Mythtaken: In "Oh My Goddess!" it's said that the Greek gods were actually mortals the Elders infused with power in order to stop the Titans. This is not a problem in itself — the problem is that Gaea was stated to be one of these mortals, when in mythology she wasn't an Olympian, but the mother of the titans.

Alphabetical Theme Naming
 Charmed (1998) / int_2f5b9954
comment
Alphabetical Theme Naming The names of The Charmed Ones all start with a P. (Prue, Piper, Phoebe, Paige.) Not a requirement, but a conscious decision of their mother Patty and Patty's mother Penny. Averted when Piper started having sons of her own (the family previously had had exclusively female births for centuries), and started giving them relatively ordinary names. The eighth season also had the Triad members Asmodeus, Baliel and Candor, with the demon Dumain at their service. No wonder they didn't want the demon Xar among them... The seventh season featured Avatars known as Alpha, Beta and Gamma, although whether these are their real names or a hierarchical naming device is unclear. In the comic continuation, Phoebe has continued with the P name tradition. Her three daughters names are PJ (Prudence Johanna), Parker, and Peyton.

Alliterative Family
 Charmed (1998) / int_32a1f455
comment
Alliterative Family: The Halliwell sisters and other members of the family too, to the point that the sisters' past lives (cousins in the same family tree) are identified in the family tree as "P. [Last Name]." In fact, when Patty (daughter to Penny and mother to Prue, Piper, and Phoebe) gave up Paige for adoption, her only request to the nun was that her name start with P. There's no explanation given (the founder of their line is named Melinda, so it isn't in her honor), and when they go back to before Phoebe was born, their Grams (Penny) dismissively scoffs "Another P, what do you know?" implying that it wasn't her intention. Melinda Warren wasn't an example herself, but she did set the trend. She named her daughter Prudence. It's never stated (or strongly implied), but it could be that her descendants are carrying on the tradition for that reason (it is implied that Prue is directly named after Prudence Warren, at least). Piper winds up breaking the tradition. The episode "Morality Bites" shows her potential future daughter named Melinda. After Prue's death, she does attempt to amend it to "Prudence Melinda," but then she winds up having a boy she names Wyatt (his father's surname). Her second son is named Chris (though he was introduced before being identified as a Kid from the Future, so maybe giving him a "P" name would have spoiled that plot twist).

Rapid Aging: Javna's victims suffer accelerated aging. Dan was a victim of this in the season two finale thanks to a Jerkass Genie.

Human Mom, Non-Human Dad
 Charmed (1998) / int_36ba3564
comment
Human Mom Nonhuman Dad: It depends on whether you view the sisters as human or nonhuman. If they're nonhuman, the trope is inverted in the case of Prue, Piper, and Phoebe (human dad/nonhuman mom). If they're human, the trope is played straight in the case of Paige (human mom/nonhuman dad). If they are human, Piper's sons and Phoebe's children have this trope apply to them, as well. Whether they're human or not, the trope is inverted in the case of Paige's children, since she married a "mortal" human, Henry, and is half Whitelighter (and thus, technically, nonhuman). Of course, Paige, as well as Piper's sons Wyatt and Chris, is half dead person, so I'm not sure how that works, but their fathers are still nonhuman. Brandon, the half-warlock from the first season, played this trope straight as well. It was inverted in the case of Cole, whose mother was a demon and his father a human.

Chekhov's Gift
 Charmed (1998) / int_371aec84
comment
Chekhov's Gift: The girls receive numerous gifts from the magical community to celebrate Wyatt's birth, including geese that lay golden eggs and a unicorn. When the geese start laying regular eggs, it proves that all magic has disappeared from the world (which was probably unintentional on the gift givers' part), and the unicorn's horn serves as the only remaining source of magic, since unicorns aren't "of this world" and thus are unaffected by the magic drain (which very much was intentional).

Actor Allusion: Multiple: To Alyssa Milano was the visual model for The Little Mermaid character Ariel when the actress was sixteen, reflected in her character, Phoebe: "Chick Flick": She wears a Miami High Mermaids shirt. "A Witch's Tale": She's turned into a mermaid. "Coyote Piper": Shannen Doherty played an Alpha Bitch in Heathers. Here, her character Prue turns out to have been very popular in high school, bordering on Alpha Bitch. "The Jung & The Restless" : Rose McGowan was filming Death Proof and Planet Terror with Quentin Tarantino during this season. Here, her character Paige wonders why she never has dreams involving Tarantino. "Forever Charmed": Finola Hughes was the host of the TV show How Do I Look?. Here, her character Patty says to Victor, "How do I look?" when she meets him in the future.

Kill the Ones You Love: Phoebe needs to overcome her emotions and vanquish Cole. Twice. The first time she doesn't do it, instead faking his death. The second time wouldn't have happened if she hadn't taken the Idiot Ball an episode earlier. The third time he's vanquished is an aversion, as she hated him by then.

Hell-Bent for Leather
 Charmed (1998) / int_3bbecc8b
comment
Hell-Bent for Leather: Especially in later seasons. Demons went from actually looking kind of demonic to just being dark-haired people in leather. It is explained early on in the show that upper-level (i.e. more powerful) demons tend to appear human so as to be able to hide in plain sight. It would make sense that as the sisters grow stronger, more powerful (and devious) demons would come after them. Furthermore, it reinforces the idea that anyone you meet can be a threat, leading to some very nice Paranoia Fuel. Phoebe actually lampshades it at one point.

Conflict Ball: In Season 5, the sisters (especially Phoebe) were distrustful of Cole and constantly expressed as much. It didn't matter that Cole was constantly trying to do good, either. The stated reason was because of Cole's turn as the Source of All Evil, but these episodes overlooked that Cole didn't choose to be the Source at all. (Instead, he had been driven mad by the power of the Source and overtaken with it.) The sisters themselves were even told as much by the wizard ("He didn't die. He was reborn into a new sorry ass.") and Cole's new personal assistant/failed seductress ("You've ruined him. Made him pathetic, weak, good.") near the end of Season 4. Their distrust was rooted in a severe case of Negative Continuity.

Bad Boss: Demons are quick to kill their underlings for even the slightest infractions. They'll even kill their underlings for not saying exactly what they want to hear at the time. About the only way a demon can hope to last long is by having a skill that's really hard to replace. There's one episode where the "password" into a demonic hideout is... killing one of the two guards. Sure, maybe it's a case of If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten, but surely it would be more efficient (and better for morale) to keep an Innocent or two around for that purpose.

Broken Aesop
 Charmed (1998) / int_401d4116
comment
Broken Aesop: The episode "Little Monsters" focuses on the sisters finding a baby manticore, an Always Chaotic Evil race, and debating what to do about it. Chris insists it has to be vanquished, Piper and Phoebe aren't comfortable vanquishing an infant, and Paige is firmly in the "Nurture trumps Nature" camp. In the end, Paige is proven to be right when the baby manticore's very human father promises to raise him right to ensure that he grows up to be a good person. This moral breaks instantly when one considers the Cole situation (half-human/half-demon who constantly fought his evil nature only for circumstances to conspire against him, leading to the sisters "rightfully" condemning him as irredeemable), not to mention all the other cases of "Evil" creatures having no choice in their alignment. But even within this one, self-contained episode, the moral can't stand up. The baby manticore is only proven "harmless" when it turns out his father is human, and this inherited humanity is what allows him the chance to be rehabilitated; if he'd had two manticore parents, he probably would have been vanquished alongside the pack. Then there's the fact that it's Paige citing "Nurture over Nature," specifically because she was adopted. Paige, whose arc is about embracing her magical destiny. Paige, who immediately after stating this position runs off to cast a spell on Darryl. Paige, whose greatest wish is for a world wherein she doesn't have to hide her magic. Paige, who embraced her birthright as a Charmed One to the point that her biological family only warrants a few mentions after her early episodes. If Paige was right, and it was Nurture that always wins out over Nature, she should have a lot more trouble with the craft. At the very least, she wouldn't run to magic as a solution to her problems, instead focusing on more mundane means, like she grew up with.

comment
Morton's Fork: In one episode, Phoebe and Paige have been afflicted by a demonic possession, leaving Phoebe mummified and Paige dying. Cole lays out Piper's options: A) cast a spell that ejects the spirit possessing Paige which will save her life, but that spirit is the only one who can undo Phoebe's mummification, meaning she'll be trapped for all eternity, B) cast a spell to eject Paige's soul, leaving only the possessor with a now-healthy body who's capable of restoring Phoebe, or C) do nothing (or take too long making a decision) and Paige's body will die anyway, sending both Paige and the possessor to the afterlife, and leaving Phoebe stuck. Naturally, Piper finds a fourth option.note It's just option A, since Cole didn't account for the fact that the possession gave Paige access to the possessor's knowledge; once the possessor is expelled, Paige simply uses that knowledge to restore Phoebe.

Elemental Powers: An Ice Person: Prue's past self was able to create freezing clouds of ice/mist. Blow You Away: Shax and the guardian of Pandora's Box are able to create air blasts. Shax travels by whirlwind. Casting a Shadow: The Hollow and the Nexus seem to be a cross of this and The Power of the Void. Dishing Out Dirt: Piper as an Earth Mother goddess is able to create earthquakes, sealing the Titans underground. Light 'em Up: Light is the domain of Elders and Whitelighters. A few whitelighters in The '60s would use their abilities to create magical light shows. They aren't seen using them as an offensive power in the series, but they have been used in that manner in the comics. Making a Splash: The Water Demon that killed the sisters' mother, and the sea hag. May or may not be the same person. Playing with Fire: Fire is seen as a mostly evil power, so most of the characters who get fire based powers are evil: fireball-throwing demons, Phoebe both in her evil past life and influenced by her demon baby, Evil Future Wyatt, Kali (who lends it to Aviva), Christy, The Source, and so on. There are good characters who use fire powers though, like the witch in the pilot and the firestarter kid. Shock and Awe: Lightning bolts are a trademark of Elders and Avatars. Energy balls are also electrically based. The shocker demon is an actual being made of electricity.

Villain Teleportation: Demons usually either shimmer or use flames. Warlocks would just disappear or "blink". Also, note while villains have the most varieties of teleportation, it's the good kind of teleportation — orbing — that appears most often.

comment
Kind of subverted in season 4 when we find out about Paige. But of course nobody had thought of her yet in season 1 when the trope was established. Unless you accept that there is no limit to the number of siblings as long as there is at least three sisters. Otherwise providence would have to wait until the mother reached menopause to grant the powers to the sisters, because more siblings might still be born. Besides we find out in "That '70s Episode" in season 2 that the sisters had their powers from birth — presumably because they were always going to be witches, it's just the Charmed gimmick that wasn't (and couldn't be) established until Phoebe's birth.

Notably, the same does not apply to her second pregnancy. Holly Marie Combs was pregnant herself at the time and wanted to depict a more realistic pregnancy. The reason for the difference is explained In-Universe as Chris having different powers. Piper can also still cast spells and use her own powers, so this trope isn't totally absent.

Characterization Marches On
 Charmed (1998) / int_479f9ad0
comment
Characterization Marches On: A few examples: Prue's character in Season 1 is extremely at odds with Seasons 2 and 3. She's portrayed as an uptight stick in the mud who is very humorless. Come Season 2 and she becomes much quippier and Not So Above It All. Part of it is down to her loosening up as her bond with her sisters grows but some of the superwitch tendencies are quite jarring. Paige was introduced with an artistic side in Season 4 - her room in the manor having paintings displayed for instance. Come Season 5 and this trait never appears again. She was also introduced as a lawyer and a social worker. By Season 5, seems she forgot she had a degree and went on a series of temp jobs because she supposedly had no career possibility outside of being a witch. Elise Rothman was the boss from hell in her season 4 appearances, getting a Bitch Alert introduction. By season 5 this trait had vanished and she was good friends with Phoebe. Henry was rather cynical and had Jade-Colored Glasses in his debut episode. None of his following appearances feature this. Additionally his and Paige's Slap-Slap-Kiss dynamic was dropped after that episode. Piper's Deadpan Snarker side didn't really emerge until season 2. When Leo is revealed to be a whitelighter, he's able to restore the sisters' magicnote They had given up their powers with a spell by using his healing powers on the Book of Shadows. Whitelighters are later established to only heal injuries and Leo doesn't reference how he healed the book the next time that plot resurfaces. Or how he managed to heal the P3 sign.

Informed Attractiveness: People on the show talked about Phoebe as if she were the most gorgeous creature to ever walk the Earth. While Alyssa Milano was certainly beautiful, she wasn't significantly more attractive than Rose McGowan or Holly Marie Combs. Their characters weren't praised for their looks nearly as much as Phoebe was (although she did have a tendency to show more skin than the others did, especially later on). Before that Prue got quite a lot if it as well. She had nearly as many one shot love interests as Phoebe (and she was only in three seasons).

Fanservice Pack: Piper opens up a night club in season 2 which provides plenty of opportunities to see the sisters dolled up and wearing something sexy in most episodes. Later seasons, most of the transformations the sisters undergo end up with them in skimpy outfits. And there's also the female demons with tend to go for the fanservice version of Hellbent For Leather.

Personality Powers
 Charmed (1998) / int_4bf3d8d7
comment
Personality Powers: Loosely applied in the first season with the sisters. Prue, who is motherly but also very controlling, gets the power of telekinesis. Nervous, meek, and insecure Piper gets the power to stop time, giving her an opportunity to calm down. Phoebe, the youngest and most impulsive who lacks forethought, gains the power to literally see the future. Later Prue essentially gains the power to clone herself, when she feels the need to be in two places at once; Piper gains more confidence and learns to blow stuff up; and a more caring Phoebe becomes The Empath. Caring Leo was a former medic and in death he became a whitelighter with the power to heal others. Later, after being promoted to Elder, he goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge and gains the ability to throw lightning. Paige grew up as an only child, never knowing who her family was and not knowing her place in the world. Much of her arc concern her trying to find herself and coincidently she has the power to teleport from place to place.

Power Perversion Potential
 Charmed (1998) / int_4d070ee3
comment
Power Perversion Potential Piper has frozen Leo on more than one occasion during sex. The first time was accidental, the next ones, not so much. Leo doesn't mind. The season 1 villain Rex uses his astral projection power to spy on Prue changing her clothes. Then, he plants a subliminal message in his lover Hannah to make her take off her dress.

See You in Hell
 Charmed (1998) / int_4e34d653
comment
See You in Hell Cole, in response to a cowboy using the trope, says "Been there, done that." Also, the similar exchange of Prue crying "Go to hell!", with Rex responding, "I'd love to, dear. Miss it terribly." Something like that seems to be the default warlock/demon response whenever anyone tells them to go to hell. You'd think sooner or later the witches would learn to stop doing it.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Charmed (1998) / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness The first episode mentions the Three Essentials of Magic: timing, feeling, and the phases of the moon. It's never brought up again, nor is there any indication in the rest of the show that the moon's phases have any effect on their magic. With the exception of an episode where, under a strange occurrence involving a blue moon, the witches are turned into ferocious beasts who maul Whitelighters. It's also commonly pointed out that their powers are linked to their emotions. Prue's telekinesis power operates quite differently in the first few episodes. Notably, in the pilot she teleports creamer into a cup of coffee. In the second episode, she barely struggles to move an entire elevator full of people up several floors. She also uses it unintentionally on objects out of her line of sight, without realizing she's even doing it. It's pretty jarring to rewatch and see the difference, since she typically uses her power to deflect energy balls or toss demons around. Seasons 1 and 2 have a drastically different tone. Season 1 is rather bleak, with a lot of melodrama. Season 2 nearly phases out the magic completely, with emphasis on Slice of Life episodes. Both seasons were a bit dark and brooding, with a lot of the material being played very seriously. Seasons 3 and 4 were more action-packed, with more witty one-liners and Lampshade Hanging (not to mention more Fanservice). In the second episode one of the shape-shifting demons held on the book and tried to get it out of the house by carrying it. Never once did it shock him like the evil sensing and shocking book that would come later. It's heavily implied that the shapeshifter's powers confused the book at first: whilst it allowed him to carry it, the book did refuse to leave the house, flying out of his hands when he tried to force it through the door, and sliding away when he tried to reach for it again. Likewise, the book is shown to be connected to the sister's powers, and it becomes steadily savvier, and more aggressive to evil as the series goes on. It's therefore implied that it's just the book's defensive capabilities strengthening as the sisters' powers do, as opposed to a complete non sequitur. In the later episodes just about every magical being, good or evil, has at least one of the dozens of teleportation powers. In earlier episodes they aren't as common. It's quite jarring to go back and see chase sequences with the demon of the week running after them, as opposed to just teleporting away. Alyssa Milano's acting in the first two seasons is remarkably different to how she portrays Phoebe later on. She functions more as The Heart and often delivers her lines a lot more dramatically. By Season 3, they realised Alyssa's gift for comic timing and retooled Phoebe slightly to make her a bit of a Genki Girl. It's a similar case with Piper; while she retained more dramatic moments than Phoebe in later seasons, her Deadpan Snarker persona wasn't really touched upon until Season 3. Initially spells were inspired by real life Wicca and neo pagan practices (the show was inspired by The Craft, which used similar ideas). By as early as Season 2, more emphasis was placed on the active powers and vanquishing potions. Prue mentions to Andy upon her confession as a witch that her children will only inherit her powers if they are girls. This is before they have interacted with any male witches, and there haven't been any in the family so far. The seasons with Constance M Burge in charge leaned more towards the Female Angel, Male Demon tropes. Cole and Leo becoming season regulars gave the show a more gender neutral edge. Also Prue frequently got lots of Girl Power moments - before they became less Anvilicious. Warlocks were the initial threat on the show, with only demons occasionally turning up. The warlocks were the human-looking enemies while demons looked more alien. By Season 4, warlocks were just Mooks and demons were the main antagonists - often appearing as humans in black leather. This was given a justification in the show; the more powerful upper level demons were the ones able to take a human form. So as the sisters' powers grew, the more evil (and therefore human-looking) demons came after them. Blinking is mentioned in "The Witch Is Back" to be a power that was copied from a witch. Later on blinking is considered the default warlock power - to the degree that Phoebe and Piper doing it in Season 3 is an indicator that something is wrong. In general, most things that get an introduction work differently for the remainder of the series. When Leo first brings up his bosses, he mentions that they're "A group of elder whitelighters, called the Founders." They are never again referred to as the "Founders," instead being called the Elders (both of which turn out to be a Nonindicative Name, since one needn't be an original nor particularly old to join their ranks). When Sam uses a powder to remove the sisters' memories, Leo says he must've kept it from one of his witch charges, but later on, "Memory Dust" is something in a whitelighter's bag of tricks (though they don't specify where it comes from, so maybe they do have a witch supplying them with it, though if that was the case, it's more likely the Charmed Ones would just whip it up themselves when need be rather than asking Leo to get some). Barbas's first episode states that he only awakens every 1300 years. His second episode handwaves his early reappearance. His later episodes don't even bother.

Single Line of Descent
 Charmed (1998) / int_4f9ba3e2
comment
Single Line of Descent A rare female example. The Charmed Ones are three sisters who are the descendants of 17th century witch Melinda Warren. Apparently, up until the birth of the protagonists, there never were three daughters per generation. Kind of subverted in season 4 when we find out about Paige. But of course nobody had thought of her yet in season 1 when the trope was established. Unless you accept that there is no limit to the number of siblings as long as there is at least three sisters. Otherwise providence would have to wait until the mother reached menopause to grant the powers to the sisters, because more siblings might still be born. Besides we find out in "That '70s Episode" in season 2 that the sisters had their powers from birth — presumably because they were always going to be witches, it's just the Charmed gimmick that wasn't (and couldn't be) established until Phoebe's birth.

Suddenly Always Knew That
 Charmed (1998) / int_4fc92b68

Suddenly Always Knew That Despite Phoebe having trained in martial arts, the third season shows auctioneer/photographer Prue surpassing her in martial arts skills she has never learned. Also, in "That '70s Episode", Phoebe suddenly reveals the ability to pick locks. Lampshaded by Prue, who rhetorically asks, "Why am I not surprised that you know how to do this?" (She had been the rebellious one in their teen years...) In Season 8, Paige showed that she knows martial arts as well despite the fact that we never saw her train in hand-to-hand combat. Must be a witch thing.

The aforementioned Cole and Leo are the two greatest examples, and two sides of the same coin. Cole is a demon, and fits the handsome bad boy type. Phoebe gets to play the fantasy of turning the bad boy good. By contrast, Leo is quite literally an angel. He plays the nice guy, and is all about love and goodness. And yes, both of them have had Shirtless Scenes.

Bad Powers, Bad People
 Charmed (1998) / int_542b8e66
comment
Bad Powers, Bad People: Done in the most annoying ways possible. For most of the show, there is no middle ground: if you have "evil" powers, then you are evil, period. Strangely, some good and evil powers are functionally the same — orbing and blinking are both teleporting powers. If a witch suddenly starts blinking, then she's obviously evil because blinking is a warlock-only power, and warlocks are all evil. Occasionally justified by the fact that powers are tied to a specific emotion, and it is hard (though not impossible) to do good things with a power that is powered by hate. It's also occasionally justified by the way one gets those powers. Evil powers generally get given to people who will abuse them while good powers end up with good people. That was the selection criteria for the Whitelighters and Darklighters. In general, bad ("demonic") powers tend to corrupt people; hence why Phoebe got Drunk on the Dark Side in the series 6 episode "Witch Wars" when she absorbed all those demonic powers from an athame.

Ripple Effect-Proof Memory: In the first season finale "Déjà Vu All Over Again" , Tempus the demon of time tries to help another demon, who is masquerading as an Internal Affairs agent named Rodriguez, kill the Charmed Ones. Whenever Rodriguez dies, Tempus would rewind time in a "Groundhog Day" Loop of sorts until Rodriguez would learn enough about his mistakes to successfully kill all three sisters. Phoebe, however, also retains the memory of each day due to her power to see the past and future, which is something Tempus doesn't know about. Eventually the sisters defeat Rodriguez and Tempus permanently, but not without losing Andy.

Power Incontinence: Phoebe is practically the queen of this trope (not that the other sisters are entirely innocent): She doesn't have any sort of control over her premonitions until ~season 6 (and even then she never learns how to turn it off), the flying power she accidentally stole from the dragon in season 2 was unreliable to say the least and she never learned to control her empathy power ever. In act neither did Prue when she [temporarily] became an empath. Also happened to Piper "Exit Strategy", where her ability to freeze time is upgraded to Stuff Blowing Up too. Plus, Paige has struggled with this in her orbing ever since she was a high-schooler.

Fantastic Racism: There was a lot of this towards Cole's demonic half. Witches, of course. In one episode, Bruce Campbell appeared as a Witch Hunter who was such a fanatic that he was willing to kill a woman who all evidence suggested was not a witch (her mother was apparently one, and that was good enough for him). The Dark Side had a lot of infighting, especially after the Source was killed. Vampires are immensely disliked (to the point of being banished from the Underworld) and Warlocks are viewed with disdain by several other evil entities (going by "Muse to My Ears"). The whole idea that demons cannot love, in how it fluctuates throughout the show, almost functions as an unintentional analogue to internalized prejudice.

My Girl Is Not a Slut The second episode has Prue going through the "I'm not a slut" panic after she slept with Andy on the first date (they had previously dated in school and had not seen each other in years). Rose McGowan had a reaction like this around mid-season 5 when she noticed Paige acquiring quite a few Men of the Week and so went to the writers saying "Paige isn't a Ho". Averted by Phoebe and her long list of love interests, played straight by the Fandom who hurl the word "slut" at her while ignoring that the majority of her love interests were steady boyfriends.

24-Hour Party People: Done a few times. First with Piper's baby shower and later would be done for every birthday party Piper's children had. You could probably also count Prue's funeral and the funeral Piper, Phoebe, and Paige had when they faked their deaths.

Enemy Mine: When the sisters have to work with the four horsemen, everyone gets on edge. In a last ditch effort to get an advantage against Zankou, the sisters try to ally with a Vampire Queen, being desperate enough to offer her and her coven immunity (the Charmed Ones won't bother them afterward, no matter what they do). Unfortunately, Zankou got to her first, and offered a sweeter deal.

You Look Familiar: Rebecca Balding, who plays Phoebe's newspaper boss Elise, was the aunt of a young witch in the Season 1 episode "The Fourth Sister". Michael Bailey Smith plays at least two different characters: Belthazor/Demon Cole, and Shax, the demon who killed Prue. He was in heavy makeup for both, though. Brian Thompson plays one of the Four Horseman and the Titan Cronus in season 5.

The Masquerade Will Kill Your Dating Life: A Running Gag is that you're not a Halliwell if you haven't dated a demon. And keeping this big of a secret from a Muggle boyfriend is impossible, so all the Charmed ones finally end up with magical love interests. Subverted by Paige. Her magical love interest was not only not the guy she ended up with, he wasn't even the next best thing she had.

Played straight (painfully so) in a later season, with a demon trying to help the sisters in return for a soul. Needlessly killed by the Big Bad before she can become human again, but after holding up her side of the bargain. And they were so close to turning her again, too. Her borrowing one of Phoebe's dresses in her last minutes showed just how ready they had gotten for it, and even caused question as to whether they actually pulled it off. This only made her vanquish even more painful.

Sanity Slippage
 Charmed (1998) / int_62434fe2
comment
And then there's the thing about whether powers can be inherently good or evil or not. One second the sisters are reassuring a young boy whose power is basically being groomed to be used for the Source that powers have no inherent morality and it's just what you do with them. The next they're mistrusting Cole for his demonic half, and after his corruption by the Source's power, which truly burned Cole more than anyone else, they're downright detesting and fearing Cole, to the point Phoebe pretty much desensitizes herself to him, for the simple fact of his having demonic powers. This only serves to expedite his Sanity Slippage, to the point some fans see his character as little else but Phoebe's Yandere and some others decided in disgust that the show had jumped the shark.

Plot Hole
 Charmed (1998) / int_6331ba26
comment
Plot Hole: In Season 5, the sisters constantly referred to Cole as having betrayed them and becoming the Source of All Evil. The problem is, the latter half of Season 4 made it quite clear that Cole had been possessed by the essence of the Source and was overtaken. The sisters were told as much by a wizard and a seductress, and their dialogue (especially Phoebe's) in the episode after his vanquish clearly establishes that they understand the difference between "Cole the human" and "Cole the Source", so their distrust is completely highly unwarranted in the presented context. The Cleaners are this, as well. Shannen Doherty may have wanted off the show, but still doesn't explain their only showing up NOW.

Evil Lawyer Joke: Paige lampshades it. A variation appears in Season 1's "Thank You For Not Morphing": When a group of shapeshifters tries to enlist the cooperation of Victor, the Charmed Ones' father, one of them threatens to "rip him into a thousand pieces and dance on his entrails." In response, Victor quips "Ah, so you're lawyers." When a warlock from Puritan times is brought to the present, he attacks a lawyer (he had the last name Halliwell, and the warlock was looking for Prue) who, not realizing he's magical, threatens to sue him for everything he's worth. The warlock says that it's comforting that lawyers haven't changed in all this time.

False Innocence Trick
 Charmed (1998) / int_64f55e69
comment
False Innocence Trick There was an episode where the sisters try to save a man trapped in a painting, but it turns out he was evil all along. Another episode sees the sisters trying to save some kids from their Ice Cream Truck prison. Turns out, demon children. And in "Primrose Empath", the demon cursed with empathy pretends to be an innocent human hiding in an old tenement and tricks Prue into taking his power so he can once more wreak havoc. The fact the demon had been given the power by a priest so as to trap him may possibly be a Shout Out to the Twilight Zone episode "The Howling Man". "I Dream of Phoebe" has the supposedly docile genie Ginny turn out to be a demon that was turned into a genie as punishment.

When Leo first brings up his bosses, he mentions that they're "A group of elder whitelighters, called the Founders."

Invisibility Cloak: The vainishing spell, which Paige seems to use a lot. Gideon can turn invisible, and so can Leo when he becomes an elder, but it's not quite clear if this is an innate power or if there's some sort of spell or artifact that does it.

Signature Move
 Charmed (1998) / int_675056e4
comment
Signature Move: Initially it was the power of three spell ("the Power of Three will set us free"). As the series continued they began using the "To call a lost Witch" spell more and more. Purportedly, the actresses actually did not enjoy reciting the Power of Three spell because they found it a bit silly.

Jerkass Has a Point
 Charmed (1998) / int_6b05b601
comment
Jerkass Has a Point: In "Crimes and Witch Demeanours", Barbas argues his case that the Charmed Ones should he stripped of their powers, due to their recklessness and selfish abuse of their abilities, nearly breaking the masquerade on a regular basis and putting innocents into situations where they've gotten killed. Turns out, the Tribunal actually agree with most of his argument and decide to strip Phoebe's active powers, due to her being the worse repeat-offender. Made even more telling when in the very next episode, Paige abuses magic for her own personal gain, which naturally ends up going horribly, horribly wrong. However this time, everyone calls her out on her reckless behaviour and Phoebe is understandably livid. Barbas also correctly pointed out during the trial that the Charmed Ones repeatedly fail to adhere to any of the rules set in place to protect the magical community (unless those rules benefit them), believe that being the Charmed Ones means not being held accountable for their actions and often treat both their magical and non-magical allies as glorified servants, having the gall to act insulted when said allies express dissatisfaction with being told to put their own lives on hold or head into danger to fix their messes.

Fail Polish: The sisters' clothing in season 1 was quite plain and average with only Phoebe being anywhere close to fashionable. By season 3 the sisters always wore the latest fashions and had much more flattering hairstyles. Fridge Brilliance - they can afford fashionable clothes by this time thanks to Piper's club being busy and Prue bringing in plenty of money as a photographer.

Tracking Spell: Scrying, a magical tracking technique that all witches are capable off. A witch has to hold a crystal pendant over a map of the area in which the person or object she hopes to find is presumably located, and move it around untill the pendant eventually pinpoints the exact location of the object or person by pulling down on to a spot on the map.

There was a bad guy who would drive specific people to suicide by giving them bad luck and making them think their situation was hopeless.

Idiot Ball
 Charmed (1998) / int_7286e96d
comment
Idiot Ball: The later the seasons, the more these tend to be thrown around. In season four, everyone seems to be holding to their personalized idiot ball. Paige jumps between using her powers very smartly, and very stupidly. The Source makes a big show of not trusting the Seer, tells her "the next time she betrays him will be her last" and then does nothing when she tells him to his face she will do the exact thing he forbade. Leo made a big show of "watching over" Paige when she lived away, but does no such thing for Phoebe in the penthouse even before Cole starts shuttering everything, and the possibility isn't even mentioned. Piper repeatedly doesn't use her freezing power when it would be extremely tactically advantageous, even though she still uses the power for very trivial things, with the crowning example being "We're Off to See the Wizard" where she does not freeze the wizard, allowing him to steal the book, even though she froze him just a while ago simply because he got on her nerves. The Vampire Queen in "Bite Me" deserves a special mention. Paige was bitten by a vampire. It was established that in order to be fully converted to a vampire a person must get their first taste of blood. Before that point, if the Vampire Queen is killed the person will be turned back to normal. After that point, if the Vampire Queen is killed the person will be killed along with her. In other words, before Paige had tasted blood the other Charmed Ones had every reason to kill the Vampire Queen. Once she'd tasted blood, it would be virtually guaranteed they wouldn't kill her so they could save their sister. So instead of simply giving Paige a little taste of blood as soon as she's bitten and then sending her after her sisters with a huge mental advantage, the Vampire Queen decides that her sisters should be her first taste of blood, thereby giving the sisters a reason to kill the queen and allowing them a window to rescue Paige.

Noble Demon: The Council of the Cleaners is made up of two Elders and two powerful demons. Either both or one of them agreed with the decisions regarding at first letting the Charmed ones off free but at the cost of Morris' life (this was reversed before he was killed) and then agreed to punish Phoebe only for her trying to use magic to short-cut her path to finding a husband. The Hollow is guarded by an angel (the representative of Good) and a devil (the representative of Evil). Both attack the Source of All Evil when he shows up to steal the Hollow.

Anyone who is against the sisters are declared evil. Except on the occasion where they're just misguided. That said occasionally has the one of the sisters do something stupid or evil and get called for it. The show has a general problem with moral issues, often ripe with Unfortunate Implications. The morality is sometimes exclusively protagonist-centered, sometimes Elder-centered, and sometimes even single-sister-centered. Examples include the Elders forcing Piper through all levels of emotional anguish, suffering and self-sacrifice, Phoebe's infamous glamouring of her boyfriend, and numerous situations between the sisters when an apology that should have gone both ways only went one way.

There's one episode where the "password" into a demonic hideout is... killing one of the two guards. Sure, maybe it's a case of If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten, but surely it would be more efficient (and better for morale) to keep an Innocent or two around for that purpose.

Friend to All Children

comment
Friend to All Children: The Halliwell's are all shown to be very fond of children, such as when they willingly take in an abandoned infant to protect him from a vengeful ghost, and being open and supportive of their young neighbor Jenny for the short time she lived next door. Other examples include Prue going to the rescue of a young witch when he signals for help and acts as a guardian and mentor. Piper helps a young fire starter to accept and learn to control his magic while protecting him from demonic bounty hunters. Paige worked for Child Services and was shown to be very affected by the plight of some of her cases. But of them all Phoebe seemed to be the most compassionate, comforting a hospital bound boy, getting a little girl being hunted by trolls to safety and using her empathy to understand her infant nephew's struggles.

Straw Feminist: Penny Halliwell, the trio's grandmother. She outspokenly states her low opinion of men in general, and is openly antagonistic to most of the male characters in the series. When confronted with the fact that a boy child is the heir to the Halliwell lineage and all its magic she is incensed and tries to convince Piper that the Wyatt is a cosmic mistake. There's also the Girdle of Hippolyta, which turns whoever wears it into one. Though Billie already had the Strawman Ball for the episode before putting it on, so maybe it's not supposed to work that way.

comment
All Myths Are True: Angels? Check. Vampires? Check. Titans? Check. Human representations of the animals in the Chinese calendar? Sure, why the hell not? An interesting case occurs with Pandora's Box. In the season 3 episode "Sin Francisco", Leo claims a box holding the seven deadly sins inspired the legend of Pandora's Box, implying it didn't exist. The season 7 episode "Little Box of Horrors" would have the Charmed Ones deal with the actual Pandora's Box. Many of the mythological figures are In Name Only, because their function in the episode has little to do with their function in mythology. For example, Hecate as "Queen of the Underworld" (that was Persephone) and Kali as an evil spirit trapped in a mirror. Kali was one of Durga's war goddesses. And so on.

Remember the New Guy?: The Underworld hierarchy tends to get this. Suddenly, the sisters are familiar with the "Triad" and the "Source," despite them receiving no proper introduction. Though downplayed, since they don't show up on screen often, and there's every reason to believe they'd be mentioned in the Book of Shadows.

Not Even Human: It appears rather often, and in one case the whole episode ("Mr. and Mrs. Witch") plays itself out without the Charmed Sisters ever becoming aware of it. The Monster of the Week is in fact a demon, but he appears to be a human Corrupt Corporate Executive. The demon is quite aware that the Charmed Ones won't kill him as long as they think he's human, and in fact the Charmed Ones never do find out. The demon is still vanquished by his superiors for failing to accomplish their evil plan; and in fact, the Charmed Sisters read about this evil executive's "suicide" in the newspaper, without ever being the wiser that this was a demon who they could have dealt with by vanquishing him.

Paige got Rapunzel Hair when she was turned into Snow White and again into a wood nymph. Phoebe also got Aphrodite's floor-length tresses when she was turned into a Goddess of Love. Her future self from season 7 onwards was portrayed with hair past her waist, to signal her character's motherly nature.

Black-and-White Morality: You are either good or you are evil. Yes, you have to choose and then there's nothing in between. The only ones who don't follow this are the Angel of Death and the Avatars, but they are an entire class of their own, not something in between. To break it down: witches are good, demons are bad. More specifically, anyone who are allies with the Charmed Ones and they like them, they are good. Anyone else is bad. Even the neutral ones because you can't trust anyone who is neutral. Also, all witches after they first get their powers, must decide if they are good or evil within 48 hours.

Seasons 1 and 2 have a drastically different tone. Season 1 is rather bleak, with a lot of melodrama. Season 2 nearly phases out the magic completely, with emphasis on Slice of Life episodes. Both seasons were a bit dark and brooding, with a lot of the material being played very seriously. Seasons 3 and 4 were more action-packed, with more witty one-liners and Lampshade Hanging (not to mention more Fanservice).

Balancing Death's Books: Whenever the Angel of Death shows up, the sisters usually have to learn An Aesop about this. His first appearance has Prue trying to stop him taking an innocent, and eventually learning that it's the man's time to go.

Hybrid Power

comment
Hybrid Power: A common witch power is telekinesis and a common power for Whitelighters is orbing. Paige, Chris, and Wyatt, who are all half-witch/half-whitelighter, they each combine these powers into orb-telekinesis.

Expository Hairstyle Change
 Charmed (1998) / int_7efd2e30
comment
Expository Hairstyle Change: All three sisters get this when they travel to the future in Season 2. Piper's hair becomes curly, Phoebe's grows to waist length and Prue's turns blonde - all to signal how different each of them have become. Across the series, Prue's hair begins in a bob but is waist length by season 3 as her witch powers grow. Phoebe has blonde highlights when her relationship with Cole first begins. As it gets serious, the colour darkens. When they get engaged, her hairstyle changes and it gets darker. While he is corrupted by the Source's power her hair goes to shoulder length and then turns black when she becomes his Queen. By season 5 when she has moved on from Cole, her fringe has grown longer. Her short hair in season 6 isn't an example (as Alyssa Milano simply wanted to cut it for her 30th birthday) but it does coincide with her gaining empath powers. By season 8 her hair has grown out long to reflect her desire to find love. Her future self who is finally a mother is shown with waist-length hair. Paige has black hair in season 4. In season 5 when she has jumped into her witch duties, her hair is now red (as a result of a potion blowing up on her). In season 6 she's trying to find herself through various temp jobs, reflected through strawberry blonde hair. When she stops going to the jobs, her hair becomes brown. Piper is unique in that her hair doesn't change very much in the series. It grows to waist length during the second season and stays that way - but she does give herself bangs around the time she and Leo have some marriage issues.

Our Mermaids Are Different: Mermaids are immortal creatures who have "hearts as cold as the ocean". If a mortal professes his love to one, she turns human. The mermaid in question made a deal for an enchantment that would give her legs — but would revert to her mermaid form if they got wet.

God and Satan Are Both Jerks: Played Straight with the Elders who, despite leading the Whitelighters and acting for the forces of good, are dogmatic, reckless, and callous in how they treat their protectorate unless forced to do otherwise. The In-verse psychotic Greek Gods exist is because of their meddling. On the other end, you have the Source of all Evil and the various residents of the Underworld who are just as vicious And immoral as they appear.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!
 Charmed (1998) / int_7fbb2a3
comment
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Well-Intentioned Extremist Gideon was so determined to prevent Wyatt from turning evil he was willing to do anything and work with anyone (even Barbas!) to make it happen. But where he crossed firmly both past the Moral Event Horizon and into this territory was the two-part season finale of season six where he was willing to completely upset the Balance Between Good and Evil, work with his evil Mirror Universe counterpart, and almost destroy the sisters, all in the name of his goal...but it turns out he was the cause of the very thing he was trying to prevent, with all of his machinations and attempts to kidnap, control, and remove Wyatt from the picture being what turned him evil in the first place. (At least until later, when other events kept trying to make Wyatt that way. They all failed, though.) The one that might also take the cake: Cole is about to give the evil powers within him to a wizard, so he can finally be free and with his love Phoebe. A minute before he succeeds, Phoebe succumbs to the Seer's trickery and her unborn baby's instincts and kills the wizard — essentially forcing herself to have to choose between her husband and her sisters. She chose him. Now, after this decision, he did have the Seer issue her a poisonous tonic to drink which enhanced her evil side so as to suppress her internal conflict with being surrounded by evil and having abandoned her sisters. But when he told her the truth, she chose to take the tonic anyway — before spitting it out and changing her mind to help the sisters destroy him. Yet she has the nerve to gradually shun him forever as a result following choices that a) were manipulated by outside forces, and b) that SHE made. Cole's Face–Heel Turn in Season 5 is even worse. In the season 4 finale, Cole manages to come back from the wasteland with a host of demonic powers in time to save Phoebe's life from a witch hunter as well as inform her of his resolve to get back together. Phoebe, conflicted between love and fear, ends up turning into a mermaid shortly after his full-on return to San Francisco ruins her plans for a quick divorce. When informed about this and led to believe it was out of hatred for him he's was halfway out the door to leave the city forever until Paige tugs him back and tells him that Phoebe loves him — which Phoebe later admits along with her fear while still insisting it's over between them. From thereon, while yes, stubborn and motivated by a foolhardy desire to earn Phoebe back, Cole generally tries to do good — either helping the sisters outright or just keeping to himself. However, the sisters (especially Phoebe) don't trust him and repeatedly make that clear to him no matter what he does. Unsurprisingly, this and his legion of powers that don't belong all help wear down on his willpower and sanity. When Cole does in fact go Jumping Off the Slippery Slope, Phoebe even has the nerve to ask him why. Like the fact that co-workers at a law firm that had him for a few months were the closest anyone came to treating him like a person rather than as something to be feared or a tool for power the entire time he was back couldn't possibly have anything to do with it.

Phoebe is the seductress, having the most active love life of the sisters.

What Happened to the Mouse?

What Happened to the Mouse?: In Season 3, it was hinted that Cole was working for the Triad for something in return. At the end of the season, it was revealed to be his father's soul, which they had somehow acquired years earlier. However, after obtaining his father's soul, it is never stated what Cole did with it and is never mentioned again. Until season 10 comic that is. In one episode, when trying to interrogate a demon Piper had frozen, Phoebe suggest simply unfreezing his head and leaving his body frozen. It worked, and despite the potential usefulness of this, it's never mentioned again. She does it again in Season 8 in the episode where she's arrested as the person she stole her fake face from.

Memory Wipe Exploitation: On a first-season episode, the three sisters have cast a spell on themselves where anyone whom they question will answer truthfully. Prue takes advantage of this to be honest with her Friend on the Force boyfriend Andy — she tells him the truth about her family's powers and their fight against evil and asks him if she could still have a relationship with him under those circumstances. He answers "No", and then immediately forgets the conversation when the spells wears off.

Protagonist-Centered Morality
 Charmed (1998) / int_89434320
comment
Protagonist-Centered Morality: Anyone who is against the sisters are declared evil. Except on the occasion where they're just misguided. That said occasionally has the one of the sisters do something stupid or evil and get called for it. The show has a general problem with moral issues, often ripe with Unfortunate Implications. The morality is sometimes exclusively protagonist-centered, sometimes Elder-centered, and sometimes even single-sister-centered. Examples include the Elders forcing Piper through all levels of emotional anguish, suffering and self-sacrifice, Phoebe's infamous glamouring of her boyfriend, and numerous situations between the sisters when an apology that should have gone both ways only went one way. In early seasons, Phoebe would do things that got criticised when Prue would do the same and be portrayed as in the right. Phoebe would frequently be scolded for using her powers for personal gain, whereas whenever Prue did the narrative would justify it. Prue would frequently be put on the moral high ground despite being just as bad as her sisters - and sometimes even worse.

Denser and Wackier: The first two seasons leaned more towards Melodrama with the supernatural stuff as mainly a bit of flavouring. Season 3 made it more action-packed and tongue-in-cheek, with many of the more outrageous magical stuff getting Lampshade Hangings. By the fifth season, several episodes would literally revolve around one of the sisters getting turned into a magical creature that required a Sexy Whatever Outfit. This got reversed in the seventh and eighth seasons which were more serious - but not as much as the first two.

Bullet Time

Bullet Time Though not a straight example, Piper's ability to seemingly stop time demonstrates this when she freezes bullets, and that tends to happen on occasion. The same goes for Cole when he's stockpiles up on demonic powers in Season 5. In a second season episode, a hired hit-woman goes after the Sisters and attempts to gun them down. The action momentarily slows down to show Prue using her powers to stop and repell the woman's bullets back at her. And in a seventh season episode the action slows down again while Kyle has Phoebe hostage, a gun pointed at her head as he demands to talk to Avatar Leo. Time slows when Leo throws lightning at Kyle, Kyle throws a vanquishing potion at Leo, and Phoebe just barely dodges the bullet fired from Kyle's gun.

 Charmed (1998) / int_8b87b21f
comment
Now I Know What to Name Him Chris, being the resident Kid from the Future. Hell, he even tries to bring about his own conception as he messed up the dates by being there. It is briefly mentioned that in the unaltered timeline he was named after his paternal grandfather. Phoebe also gets one when she time travels to meet her pregnant mother, who remarks how obvious it is that she would choose another P name and that "it's not too late to change it." She also briefly mentions that she must have named Phoebe after her favorite aunt. Way back in season 2, long before Piper ever considered having kids, she visits the future and meets her daughter, Melinda. Though, when she actually does get pregnant, the name she's decided on is Prudence Melinda, because Prue's dead in this timeline. Then the baby winds up being a boy anyway, which means they have to come up with something new. When Piper's third baby is a girl, she goes back to her original plan of naming her Melinda.

comment
In "Wrestling with Demons", Prue finds out Cole is still alive. She constantly criticizes Phoebe for lying to her and for supposedly risking them all, as well as refuses to listen that the half-human demon could have any good in him. However, in the earlier "When Bad Warlocks Go Good," Prue risked everything to help a half-human Warlock because she sensed good in him. Not to mention how this is the episode where Prue is actively trying to save an ex-boyfriend (who never appears in the series again) from a contract with a demonic trainer while he's only one kill away from becoming a full demon. Unlike the other examples here, Prue is called on this hypocrisy by Phoebe (obviously well-before her own hypocrisy became evident), and the final scene of the same episode hints that Prue was more angry by Phoebe's lying about vanquishing Cole than the non-vanquish itself, so she still has a leg to stand on.

Creepy Good: The Mirror Universe version of Barbas, the Demon of Hope. Despite being good, he's still creepy as hell. Everyone in "It's a Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad World Part 2", due to an overabundance of good throwing off the Balance Between Good and Evil.

One-Hour Work Week
 Charmed (1998) / int_8c3241aa
comment
One-Hour Work Week: Somewhat acknowledged as many episodes have the sisters struggle to balance demon hunting with their work schedules. Subverted later on in the show; Prue works as a freelance photographer after quitting her job at Bucklands. She's at least seen with a camera in various episodes, with references to various photoshoots. Piper is justified because she owns a nightclub and so doesn't have to be there all the time; she has people to help her run it. She's also frequently shown bartending at night - allowing her to hunt demons during the day. Phoebe doesn't work until late season 4 and by season 6 she has billboards and is making appearances on talk shows - so her working on the column from home is acceptable. Paige is frequently shown at her social worker job in season 4 but quits to focus on her witch duties. She does temp jobs in Season 6 and a lot of magical problems seem to revolve around the jobs themselves. In season 7 she's working at Magic School - so no one there will question a Charmed One rushing out to fight demons. Lampshaded in "Size Matters" where Phoebe goes to a job interview and asks for a really flexible work schedule. She doesn't get the job.

 Charmed (1998) / int_8c8bd091
comment
Fetus Terrible Played straight for Phoebe's child, who was the offspring of a Charmed One turned (temporarily) evil, and the Source of all evil. It was slowly corrupting Phoebe, even granting her a power she had in her past evil self. Inverted with Piper's, however. Not only would hers become a powerful force for good, but Wyatt would protect Piper even when he was still in the womb.

Took a Level in Jerkass
 Charmed (1998) / int_8cb1a369
comment
Took a Level in Jerkass: Phoebe became significantly nastier in Season 5, blaming Cole for all that had gone wrong in her life and refusing to accept responsibility for her own actions. She also began misusing her powers, resulting in the Elders punishing her. She remained in this persona until Season 8, where she Took a Level in Kindness. Even Leo himself wasn't innocent of this trope. He had to solve the overarching crisis of season 6 by killing his mentor in cold blood, which he himself acknowledged was "a great evil". Later he became part of a cult of reality warpers in season 7 and eventually convinced the sisters to help them get their way thinking it would lead to demon-free lives, only stopping when the demon who would become the show's most dangerous Big Bad had to educate him that this meant the elimination of free will. Oh, and a throwaway subplot in a season 8 episode reveals that he'd even stopped being above such things as capturing perceived enemies, holding them prisoner, and getting magic students to use them as crash test dummies, without even adding context to justify this torture beyond the victims being demons.

Derailing Love Interests: A unique case with Phoebe and Cole where both lovers were derailed. First was Phoebe at the start of season 5 when she suddenly decided Cole was responsible for everything that was bad in her life and blamed him for all her problems. She even went so far as to try and make a vanquishing potion for him. Afterwards he became a villain again, kidnapping Phoebe and even rewriting history to keep them together.

Identical Grandson: Though subverted in one episode where Leo attends a WWII veterans' reunion as his own identical grandson, even though he obviously wasn't. We never see her, but Paige is apparently the spitting image of Grams's first husband's sister Janice. He repeatedly comments on it when she winds up meeting him back in the '60s.

Season 6's "Chris-Crossed" is a flashback of Chris's past, which is technically a flash-forward since Chris is from the future. Doubles as a Wham Episode in that it's revealed that not only is Chris actually half-witch/half-whitelighter like Paige, but also in the future Wyatt is an evil overlord.

Revisiting the Roots
 Charmed (1998) / int_8eb3d48f
comment
Revisiting the Roots: The series' Sorting Algorithm of Evil became somewhat more akin to a bell-curve. The first three seasons dealt with them battling warlocks and demons, the fourth had them battling the very Source Of All Evil, the fifth ended with them battling the classic Greek Titans, the sixth had them go against a Well-Intentioned Extremist Angel, and the seventh had them end destroying a past contender of the Source. By the eighth and final season, Word Of God says that Billie and Christy, sibling female witches like the protagonists, was a great way to ground the show.

Demonic Possession: With demons becoming the main enemies on this show, there were bound to be plenty of examples. Isis, Frankie and Lulu, Imara, Zile and Dantalian, and of course The Source itself has gotten in on the action. Heck, the Source alone has pulled off this trope on Paige's boyfriend Shane, engaged in The Corruption after its power got into Cole, and another demon used possession to obtain a guise to lure Wyatt into a plot to revive him.

Time Master Tempus, the demon of time, trapped the sisters in a "Groundhog Day" Loop in season one. The Avatars and The Cleaners could stop and rewind time. Piper is a lesser example, able to stop and accelerate time in a very localized area/target. In a season two episode where the sisters go into the future, her powers have grown to almost the same level as the Avatars and Cleaners, at least as far as her freezing powers.

Fountain of Youth: One is being guarded by nymphs, but is really more of a Healing Spring. Another one shows up, and this one actually looks like a stone fountain. Irritatingly enough, Piper says "But that's just a myth!" when confronted with the second one, even after having come across the first one, possibly because she and her sisters had promised the nymphs from the first fountain that they would keep its existance a secret.

When Chris realizes he split up his parents before his conception date, he enlists Phoebe and Paige to get them back together so he isn't Ret-Gone. Paige's plan? Serving up aphrodisiacs (champagne, oysters, and chocolate strawberries) at Wyatt's first birthday party. When Piper questions it, Paige first claims she doesn't know they were aphrodisiacs, and then claims she'd know they weren't appropriate at a child's birthday party if there were more kids around.

Not So Above It All

Prue's character in Season 1 is extremely at odds with Seasons 2 and 3. She's portrayed as an uptight stick in the mud who is very humorless. Come Season 2 and she becomes much quippier and Not So Above It All. Part of it is down to her loosening up as her bond with her sisters grows but some of the superwitch tendencies are quite jarring.

comment
Men Are the Expendable Gender: Mostly averted. Demons are just as likely to go after male and female victims without discriminating. Any time an innocent is killed it's treated as a bad thing. From season 3 onwards villains are just as likely to be female too. The one time this trope does show up, it's being invoked knowingly. A Straw Feminist witch advises her demon croney to attack a female innocent to draw Billie out - due to the spell she's under the influence of.

Re-Release Soundtrack
 Charmed (1998) / int_9952b10b
comment
Re-Release Soundtrack: For all eight seasons, Charmed's theme song was Love Spit Love's cover of The Smiths' "How Soon is Now?". However, before the Season 8 DVDs came out, the song's license expired. The producers were unable to get the license back, and therefore the opening song on the DVDs was replaced by a generic hard-rock instrumental theme. To make matters worse the song had to be removed from the entire series when it was added to Netflix. When the series was remastered to HD in 2018 the producers were finally able to get the rights to the song back and restored the credits for the Blu-ray editions.

Seven Deadly Sins
 Charmed (1998) / int_99a7aa94
comment
Seven Deadly Sins: The episode "Sin Francisco" had a demon hitting people with concentrations of these. Needless to say, the main cast got hit, with Phoebe getting Lust, Piper getting Gluttony, Leo getting Sloth, and Prue getting Pride. The only way to overcome the sin is to be selfless. Pride had a clever twist where Prue was unable to purge herself of the sin - as any heroic act she did would just be her showing off how selfless she was. She had to be saved by someone else to lose the sin.

 Charmed (1998) / int_99db72ee
comment
An invincibility spell shows up in the episode "Little Monsters". Paige cast it on Darryl, and it made him pretty much Immune to Bullets. While one wonders why they don't use it more often, it also had the side effect of inflating one's ego, reminiscent of when Prue was infected with the sin of Pride nearly killing her. Plus it turned his strength up to beyond Herculean levels and when we last see him before Paige goes to fix it is surrounded by his broken things in his office because he couldn't control his new found strength.

Evil Counterpart

comment
Evil Counterpart They fought an evil trio of warlock brothers who were even called "The Evil Charmed Ones". One of them wanted to be a priest, because doing so would remove his warlock half. Yet another trio of evil siblings, sisters this time, appear in the episode "The Power of Three Blondes". They went as far as to actually steal the identities of the Charmed Ones in order to form their own evil version of the Power of Three. Their pettiness did them in. Darklighters are this to Whitelighters. And like Leo, one (Alec) fell in love despite the rules and norms. The Grimoire to the Book of Shadows, complete with the main force of evil/good having the main version that's called THE book.

Took a Level in Badass
 Charmed (1998) / int_9bcd82c0
comment
Took a Level in Badass: Piper began as the meek middle sister with a defensive power, unsure of her position in their destiny. After Prue's death, Piper had to assume the lead witch role and become the eldest sister. She also gained a more offensive power, with the result that she could be a One-Woman Army depending on the episode. Phoebe likewise just had premonitions in the first season. But she started training in martial arts, gained a levitation power and was much more effective in combat. In the season 2 episode with the Bad Future, the sisters get a taste of what their powers will be like in ten years. Prue destroys the attic with a casual wave of her hand, Piper freezes everyone on a crowded street and Phoebe can generate electricity.

Astral Projection
 Charmed (1998) / int_9bd92eef
comment
Astral Projection: This becomes Prue's second power. It never fully develops before her death, so her original body seems to go unconscious, and her main power of telekinesis is useless, as her astral clone can't use it and her original body is disabled. Miss Donovan in season seven learns to project a physical astral body in a similar manner. A second form of astral projection is the ability to create an intangible, invisible spectral form. This is used by a Season 1 villain Rex, who can implant hypnotic suggestions this way, and by Barbas, who uses this form to make people's fears reality.

The Hecate Sisters
 Charmed (1998) / int_9c209a57
comment
The Hecate Sisters: Explored in the episode, well, "The Three Faces of Phoebe". She summons herself from two different points in time - young Phoebe is the maiden, who immediately has a crush on Cole and still believes in the "someday my prince will come" fantasy, present Phoebe is the mother because of her impending marriage (and deciding whether to follow through is the reason Phoebe cast the spell), and elderly future Phoebe is the crone, who is bitter and angry because she didn't marry Cole, and has spent her life wondering What Could Have Been if she did. This also applies to the sisters together with their mother Patty and grandmother Penny: The sisters are the maidens, who are new to the craft. Patty is the mother, who is kind, supportive, and patient with teaching her girls whenever they summon her for advice. Penny is the crone, who is the most experienced and powerful of them all even in death, is quite bitter with regards to men (she was quite disapproving of young Wyatt initially), and is also somewhat demanding on her granddaughters given their legacy. This is again formed in the series finale to vanquish The Hollow for good. Piper is the maiden, Patty is the matron and Penny is the crone.

What Measure Is a Non-Human?
 Charmed (1998) / int_9c45b5a2
comment
What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Played with throughout the series — originally, demons were humans who had intentionally given up their souls, but as time wore on, more variations occured: a half-manticore child, families of demons who were apparently born that way, and of course Cole Turner. The sisters end up killing them all at some point anyway. Played straight (painfully so) in a later season, with a demon trying to help the sisters in return for a soul. Needlessly killed by the Big Bad before she can become human again, but after holding up her side of the bargain. And they were so close to turning her again, too. Her borrowing one of Phoebe's dresses in her last minutes showed just how ready they had gotten for it, and even caused question as to whether they actually pulled it off. This only made her vanquish even more painful. Completely subverted in an episode where the sisters were hunting what they thought was a demon going after an innocent baby. Turned out the 'demon' was actually the baby's father, who had learned magic and transformed himself so as to have the power to protect his son from his mother and her kind. (This baby would be the half-manticore child mentioned just above here.) Not only did the sisters give the fellow a chance to explain the truth (despite him being willing to kidnap and endanger them), they stopped the real demons, saved his life (after his brush with death restored him to his human self), and got his son back for him. All of this despite the Elders telling them that 'the baby was a (half) demon and can never be raised to be anything else'. Score a major hit for the heroes, idealism, and Happy Endings!

Evil Costume Switch: Especially notable in the season 6 finale. Evil Phoebe has a mohawk, Evil Paige has thick bangs, Evil Leo has Spiky Hair and a beard while Evil Chris has a ponytail. All of them of course wear black clothing that's either revealing (in the sisters' case) or shaggy (the men's case). Their evil selves tend to have facial piercings as well. A very straight example with future Wyatt in "Imaginary Fiends". His evil self wears a black t-shirt, ripped jeans, has long hair and a beard.

Traumatic Superpower Awakening: Three out of four Charmed Ones have their original powers triggered by different emotions before they manage to master them: Prue's trigger is anger, Piper's is panic, and Paige's is fear. Phoebe's power of premonition, on the other hand, activates on its own without any triggers.

Whole Episode Flashback: Two notable ones. Season 3's "Pre-Witched" shows the sisters six months before the start of the series right before their grandmother died. Season 6's "Chris-Crossed" is a flashback of Chris's past, which is technically a flash-forward since Chris is from the future. Doubles as a Wham Episode in that it's revealed that not only is Chris actually half-witch/half-whitelighter like Paige, but also in the future Wyatt is an evil overlord.

Continuity Nod: Sometimes when they're flipping through the Book of Shadows you may notice pages that came from earlier episodes or even seasons. It gets a little more obvious that each page added for an episode never got taken out, because the book seems to get noticeably thicker by the end of the series. This works though, because the Sisters had by the later seasons started adding their own stuff to it. When Paige goes back to 1967 in "Witchstock", the book is appropriately much thinner. A minor gag in Season 1's "Love Hurts" has Prue teasing Phoebe for being nicknamed 'Freebie' in high school for making out with a boy under the bleachers. When she goes to her high school reunion in Season 6, we meet the guy in question.

Mundanger In "Sight Unseen", a mysterious stalker turns out to be an ordinary human and not a demon at all. And in "Dream Sorceror", the titular villain isn't actually a sorceror, but a scientist who built a machine that can project himself into other people's dreams and kill them, Freddy Krueger style. Apparently if you die in your dreams you die in real life. Barbas, apparently learning that if you confront the sisters directly with magical threats, instead hires a hitman to have them done away with.

Towards the end it turns serious when the cop infected with Anger attacks the sisters at the Manor. The season 4 episode "Hell Hath No Fury". Funny jokes about Paige messing with magic and getting an accidental Breast Expansion one minute, a serious story about Piper literally losing herself in rage and grief over Prue's death the next. One of the better-acted episodes in the series, oddly enough.

Ascended Demon: Several characters attempt this in the series, all of which a) become close to Phoebe, and b) end up dead. Except the first, actually, who got close to Prue instead, and succeeded in ridding himself of his evil powers by becoming a priest.

Rule of Three: "The Power of Three" is what makes these girls some of the most powerful witches ever. Revealed in the comics, because Prue's soul hadn't moved on, when Paige joined the Charmed Ones, the girls were actually held back from achieving their full power.

Status Quo Is God: No matter what happened, or what kind of creature the sisters got turned into (be them vampires, warlocks, valkyries or even demons), by the end of the episode the transformation was undone. Subverted in "Crime and Witch-demeanors" where Phoebe is stripped of her powers, not regaining her premonition until the next season.

Hide Your Pregnancy: Holly Marie Combs, until they decided to write in her pregnancy. And the baby was born in less than six months. The show did note a six-month time jump between the episode where Leo and Piper conceive Chris and the very next episode, which justifies how quickly Piper was pregnant and showing. Or would have, if HMC wasn't obviously pregnant long before they wrote the pregnancy in. She also delivered six weeks premature.

Parting Words Regret: Paige was fighting with her Muggle Foster Parents and threw in their face that they weren't her real parents while they were driving, and it may have been what distracted her father and helped cause the accident that killed them. She's able to go back in time and inadvertently change the circumstances of their death (she was trying to outright prevent it), assuring them that she loves them and that she'll grow out of this rebellious phase, and learn that her own miraculous survival was thanks to orbing (which she didn't understand yet and thus didn't remember), and she's still plagued with guilt that they never got to see her grow up. Until Leo brings their spirits from the afterlife to assure her that they're proud of the woman and the witch that she's become.

Subbing for Santa When Piper became the Angel of Death. Paige was once turned into a nymph to replace one that just died. Charmed also had many inversions of demons and warlocks and other bad guys stealing the powers of good magical creatures for their own gain. Just to name a few: A Demon steals Cupid's ring and starts breaking up relationships in revenge. A warlock steals a ring which allowed him to harness the powers of Muses. A warlock stole the powers of a Whitelighter in order to get into heaven and kill all the elders. A demon once used a Sandman's dust in order to bring the Charmed One's dreams to life.

 Charmed (1998) / int_ac09dc0f

Alas, Poor Villain: Lulu and Frankie, the ghosts who possessed Cole and Phoebe in "Paige from the Past". Despite being villains, you can't help feel sympathetic when it's revealed that their entire Unfinished Business was simply wanting to get married. Considering that they'd have likely moved on afterwards, Piper interrupting the ceremony comes across as kinda a dick move on her part. Of course, sympathies are lessened somewhat by a line of dialogue that reveals that along with being robbers, they were also serial/thrill killers. It seems just sheer luck that they didn't kill anyone while in Phoebe and Cole's bodies.

Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: The name of almost every episode was a pun that worked on more than one level; both peripherally relevant to the plot point, Monster of the Week, or most important sister in the episode, as well as playing off of a Shout Out to another famous title or work, usually literature, rival TV, classic film, or well-known songs, often oldies.

Face–Heel Turn
 Charmed (1998) / int_af3ea0e3
comment
Cole's Face–Heel Turn in Season 5 is even worse. In the season 4 finale, Cole manages to come back from the wasteland with a host of demonic powers in time to save Phoebe's life from a witch hunter as well as inform her of his resolve to get back together. Phoebe, conflicted between love and fear, ends up turning into a mermaid shortly after his full-on return to San Francisco ruins her plans for a quick divorce. When informed about this and led to believe it was out of hatred for him he's was halfway out the door to leave the city forever until Paige tugs him back and tells him that Phoebe loves him — which Phoebe later admits along with her fear while still insisting it's over between them. From thereon, while yes, stubborn and motivated by a foolhardy desire to earn Phoebe back, Cole generally tries to do good — either helping the sisters outright or just keeping to himself. However, the sisters (especially Phoebe) don't trust him and repeatedly make that clear to him no matter what he does. Unsurprisingly, this and his legion of powers that don't belong all help wear down on his willpower and sanity. When Cole does in fact go Jumping Off the Slippery Slope, Phoebe even has the nerve to ask him why. Like the fact that co-workers at a law firm that had him for a few months were the closest anyone came to treating him like a person rather than as something to be feared or a tool for power the entire time he was back couldn't possibly have anything to do with it.

Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: Although the respective characters change due to Character Development and cast changes. The first seasons have Prue (Brains), Piper (Brawn) and Phoebe (Beauty). In later seasons, it's Piper (Brains, after she got promoted to eldest sister), Phoebe (Brawn, especially when she uses She-Fu) and Paige (Beauty, being the sister with the least experience). More accurately, it started out in the ways described, but the She-Fu turned out to be infectious (except for Piper, though she has her exploding power) and they're all played by Hollywood hotties anyway, so really it ends up being the one with the most of X quality.

Madonna–Whore Complex: Played straight in early seasons, especially "Is There A Woogy In The House?" where Phoebe dresses modestly at the start - but starts wearing less clothes when she gets possessed. Otherwise averted in later seasons as while evil females could usually be portrayed as trashy, the sisters themselves still provided plenty of Fanservice and had active sex lives.

Extreme Doormat: Darryl Morris has done everything for the Charmed Ones. He even forgave them after Phoebe and Paige stole his soul. He had managed to grow a spine after getting put through the wringer one too many times without a thank you and put some distance between him and the girls. They didn't understand why.

Fate Worse than Death
 Charmed (1998) / int_b1346878
comment
Fate Worse than Death: Demons and the like come from the Underworld, but when they get vanquished, they go to the Wasteland. They lose their human forms and face being devoured by a beast under the ground. Cole - having retained his human form because he's only half-demon - kills the beast in Season 4, though. What will happen in Season 2, episode 10 if the Demon of the Week succeeds in his plot. Cupid even says so.

RetCon

comment
Retcon: A rare case of this being reversed. Penny was first said to have been married four times. This was retconned to being six times. Later seasons clarified this as only being engaged six times and married four. Season 6 introduces a school for young witches to practice their powers. Never seen before or referenced, not even when the sisters were trying to figure out their own powers. Season 6 also introduces the Cleaners - whose job it is to cause a Cosmic Retcon to prevent magic from being exposed. They would have been really useful in the Season 3 finale.

comment
Sense Loss Sadness: "Primrose Emphath" has Father Thomas, who passed his power of empathy into a demon in order to stop him and ended up in a psych ward due to the depression and insanity that followed. "Sense and Sense Ability" has an old demon woman stealing a sense from each of the sisters through a cursed monkey totem, although the result isn't so much "sadness" as it is "hilarious confused antics". "Witchness Protection" has the reveal that the seer Kyra is incapable of feeling strong emotion (whether this is legit or her personal case of Informed Flaw due to demonic conditioning is uncertain) and wants to solve this problem by helping the Charmed Ones in return for a spell to turn her into a human.

Take That!: In season 3, they seemed to be throwing these toward Shannen Doherty as Prue is Put on a Bus to Hell. In "Sin Francisco", she was possessed by the Deadly Sin of Pride, turning her into a raging egomaniac. "Look Who's Barking" turns her into a literal female dog, and she also was responsible for destroying Piper's wedding in "Just Harried." It seemed like everybody was grateful to see her leave.

Blood Knight: Paige, who's the most vocal about killing Cole in Series 5 and often the first one to suggest resorting to violence to solve a problem. Her tendency to do this lead Television Without Pity to jokingly refer to her as "Raige". "Paige is proposing violence against the monkey!" Fittingly, she wound up becoming the Goddess of War in the Titans two-parter.

The names of The Charmed Ones all start with a P. (Prue, Piper, Phoebe, Paige.) Not a requirement, but a conscious decision of their mother Patty and Patty's mother Penny. Averted when Piper started having sons of her own (the family previously had had exclusively female births for centuries), and started giving them relatively ordinary names.

comment
Morality Chain: Many characters have explicitly stated that Phoebe plays this role in making sure that Cole remains good. In fact, Cole's well-known tendency for being a Heel–Face Revolving Door is pretty much a function of his relationship with Phoebe — that is, Phoebe and Cole are constantly breaking up and reestablishing their relationship, and every time this happens, it has a major effect on Cole's status as evil or good. Although Phoebe is very much aware of her power to be Cole's Morality Chain, she usually seems to be merely yanking his chain based on her own emotions, rather than consistently using her influence to make sure Cole becomes and remains a redeemed demon.

Muggle-and-Magical Love Triangle: Paige has one, briefly in the last season, between Henry (muggle) and Simon (magical). Before that, Piper had one between Leo (magical) and neighbor Dan (muggle). Though Leo had been temporarily stripped of his powers at the time, which is actually how he has the time to dedicate to competing for Piper's affection, he's symbolic of her powers and responsibilities, whereas Dan is symbolic of the normal, easy life she craves.

Blonde, Brunette, Redhead
 Charmed (1998) / int_bf9163d9
comment
Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The season 5 finale turns the sisters into Greek Goddesses. Paige had red hair at the time and Phoebe's was turned blond with Piper keeping hers brown. Paige hersef also cycled through all the colors having black hair in season 4, red in season 5, blond in Season 6 and brown for the rest of the series. When two nymphs turn Paige into a nymph in season 5, they fall into this trope. Amusingly enough the redhead is killed off and Paige is the one they pick to replace her.

Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male
 Charmed (1998) / int_c0e3994b
comment
Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Prue would frequently use her telekinesis to cause slapstick injuries to Andy or other men who annoyed her. Subverted in the Season 4 premiere, where a suspected abusive father turns out to be covering for his wife. Deconstructed in Season 8 where Billie - believing women are the superior sex - accidentally causes all the girls in her class to beat up the boys. She's horrified by what she's done and it's presented as wrong.

New Powers as the Plot Demands
 Charmed (1998) / int_c26e2b1
comment
New Powers as the Plot Demands: The main characters showcase a number of powers throughout the series which only appear in an episode or two and are never brought up again. For example Prue is able to cause a demon to explode by entering its body with her astral projection, and Leo can make himself look like other people. When the latter first appears its main use is to fake out the audience into thinking the sisters are fighting Cole, when in fact it as Leo altering his appearance for training purposes.

Irony: The episode "All Halliwell's Eve" opens with Phoebe talking about how much she hates the stereotype of witches as wearing pointy hats and cackling while riding broomsticks. Later on in the episode when the sisters are in the 17th century Virginia colony, they need to ward off a group of men with muskets and Phoebe declares "I'm embracing the cliche" and puts on the hat and flies on a broomstick, cackling for good measure to scare the men away. Yep, she may well have reinforced the very stereotype she was complaining about. An unintentional example but Prue Halliwell, the in-universe "Super-Witch" of the first three seasons, ended up killed off offscreen, never to return again.

comment
Warlocks were the initial threat on the show, with only demons occasionally turning up. The warlocks were the human-looking enemies while demons looked more alien. By Season 4, warlocks were just Mooks and demons were the main antagonists - often appearing as humans in black leather. This was given a justification in the show; the more powerful upper level demons were the ones able to take a human form. So as the sisters' powers grew, the more evil (and therefore human-looking) demons came after them.

She-Fu: Even before she got an active power, Phoebe was the Kung-Fu Wizard of the group. Gaining the power to levitate meant that she could now execute more impressive physical moves. Prue was also using her power of telekinesis to amplify her combat skills - she pulls off a wall-backflip in "Blinded by the Whitelighter" while practice fighting.

Ghostly Goals/Unfinished Business: Played straight in regards to Phoebe's classmate Charlene in "Ex Libris", who can't move on until she helps bring a murderer to justice. Subverted in the case of Mark Chao in "Dead Man Dating", when there is actually no problem with him moving on to the afterlife - he just doesn't want to, because his spirit will be taken to hell unless his body is given a proper burial. He still manages to get justice for himself, and have Piper fall in love with him in the process.

Shout-Out
 Charmed (1998) / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout Out In other possible shout-outs to Television Without Pity, recapper Demian at least once per recap expressed his dislike of the character Leo, referred to the supposedly omnipotent Elders as "the ever-useless Elders" due to their apparent inability or unwillingness to help the protagonists. In the episode "Lucky Charmed," Piper refers to the "Fricking ever-useless Elders!" In "The Courtship of Wyatt's Father," the demon-of-the-week is determined to kill Leo, and is named "Damien." And oh, didn't he love that. This show gave a shout to Buffy the Vampire Slayer during the episode "The Power of Two". Prue and Phoebe are in a mausoleum and have this conversation: An even better example is when Paige is attacked by a vampire in the fourth season, after Buffy's Channel Hop from The WB to UPN. In the season 2 episode "That Old Black Magic," the villain of the episode finds a lost hiker with a camera who got separated from his friends making a documentary about the Blair Witch. She later comes across the other two, one of whom is a girl repeatedly screaming "Joshua!" They also do a shout to Psycho when in a season 2 episode Piper is pursued by a serial killer from a movie. The girls' one-shot "superhero" costumes in Season 5 are reminiscent of the Legion of Super-Heroes, with a dose of then-current X-Men outfits for flavor. Piper's in particular seems like an updated version of the original Dazzler costume. This may or may not be intentional. In the season five finale, Paige gets turned into a goddess of war — more a genderswapped version of Ares rather than Athena, but with Poseidon's trident. Phoebe asks her whether she was done being a Warrior Princess. One demon actually says the line "I find your lack of faith... disturbing." Another shout out happens in several episodes with Leo (Brian Krause) & Piper (Holly Marie Combs) about their real life dating when Leo quotes he always fancied a stronger woman like a "Bethany" he refered to his then wife Beth Bruce (who he later divorced) and Piper spat back with 'Well to bad your not a Don or David' which refers to her eventual real life husband David Donoho (also later divorced), who she was just casually seeing at the time. In Season 8, "The Jung and the Restless" there is a shout out to Quentin Tarantino, by Rose McGowan who at that time had done the movies Death Proof and Planet Terror with him. In early seasons, Prue works at the Buckland Auction House. The name comes from Raymond Buckland, who introduced the religion of Wicca to the United States. The S:3 E:2 episode "Magic Hour" is almost a carbon copy of the plot from Ladyhawke about two lovers who are cursed to become animals at different parts of the day by a jealous ruler. Prue lampshades it with "I feel like I've seen this in a movie somewhere." The season 6 episode "I Dream of Phoebe" is of course full of them to I Dream of Jeannie. The genie bottle is the same as Jeannie's and Phoebe's genie costume is modelled after Barbara Eden's (complete with hairstyle too). When Paige sees Phoebe in the costume she also asks "shouldn't you be helping Major Nelson?" In a first season episode, Phoebe also wore a costume reminiscent of Jeannie's when she worked (briefly) as a psychic. In Season Four, Phoebe says "What good is being a witch if I can't just twitch my nose and make the laundry fold itself?" The Crucible has to be mentioned, courtesy of the character Mary Warren, housemaid of John Proctor. The ancestral mother of the Halliwell clan, who is said to be executed during the Salem witch trials, was named Melinda Warren.

Informed Ability: Phoebe gets hired long-term to write the relationship advice column at a newspaper after a stint at ghostwriting it earlier because everybody thought she was so great at it, and gushing over her column continues afterwards. The examples that are shown of her advice is actually quite trite. She also guest hosts a talk show once, and again people are saying she was amazing, while her shown behaviour in the studio was shockingly amateurish.

Series Continuity Error: In "Desperate Housewitches", the sisters have to face the threat of a resurrected Source. Paige asks Piper and Phoebe how the Source was vanquished last time... as if she wasn't there... which she was... for technically three times. No-one on the writing staff caught this?! "Chris Crossed" flashes back to Chris travelling back in time. He draws a portal on the attic wall and goes through - when he orbed in for his debut episode. There's also no mention about the Titans in "Chris Crossed" - which is who Chris goes back specifically to help the sisters vanquish. His clothes and hair are also drastically different.

Subverted Rhyme Every Occasion: Most of the spells rhyme, however "Lost and Bound" has Paige try a haiku out:

Child of Forbidden Love
 Charmed (1998) / int_cd361f1d
comment
Child of Forbidden Love: Love affairs between witches and Whitelighters are strictly forbidden. Whitelighters can end up recycled for breaking this taboo while witches, their families, and any children born from the union can be stripped of their magic. Whitelighter-Witches are usually hidden after birth, which is why Paige's existence was originally unknown even to her older sisters. Paige was originally thought to be the first of her kind, but Season 8 introduces another Whitelighter-Witch who was born the year before she was; it is implied that Whitelighter-Witches are more common than anyone originally thought, and Paige's part in the Power of Three opened the door for others to come out of hiding.

Killed Off for Real
 Charmed (1998) / int_cda501da
comment
Killed Off for Real: Prue. Due to a case of Real Life Writes the Plot, when her actor left the show. She refused to come back, preventing her character from retuning, even as a white lighter (explained in show that she couldn't appear to her family or it would mess with their grieving process).]]

Heads, Tails, Edge: When Phoebe gets a job and discovers her boss is having an affair, she flips a coin to determine whether she should lie to the boss's husband or not. It lands on its edge.

Lighter and Softer: Later seasons. Also as the Charmed Ones get more powerful there's generally less of a sense of jeopardy. All the sisters "die" and are saved in multiple episodes.

Deadly Upgrade
 Charmed (1998) / int_cf41a26
comment
Deadly Upgrade: Happens when people who aren't meant to be Empaths take (or are given) a legit one's power anyway. However, Prue really turns it Up to Eleven: powers in Charmed are fueled by emotion, and the more emotional you become the stronger your powers become. So, when Prue gets the empathy power she feels more emotions (specifically, those closest to her), so her empathy power becomes stronger. Its area of effect therefore increases, so she feels more (further off) emotions, so her empathy power becomes stronger again, so her area of effect increases again—positive feedback continues ad infinitum. Unfortunately, on top of the fact that these power boosts occur quicker than she has time to adjust to them (making them exponentially unstable), she still has her original powers, which logically "piggy-back" on the gains made by the empathy feedback loop. Given that one of them is telekinesis, the result is ... interesting.

Cassandra Truth: Happens a few times. Most notable being Paige's mistrust of Cole through latter season 4; though she's about 50% right and wrong about what's going on there, the conclusion that he does have to be stopped is part of what she's right about.

Heroic Wannabe: Billie — she sucks at being a hero and a villain. Prue in "Sin Francisco". Getting infected with the sin of Pride has her recklessly charging into dangerous situations, desperate to show off how heroic and selfless she is.

Four-Girl Ensemble: Although not all four Charmed Ones were on the show at he same time (since Prue died before Paige was introduced), the sisters still fit this trope. Paige was The Ditz, Piper was the Deadpan Snarker, Phoebe was the sexy one, and Prue was the wise Cool Big Sis. Before Paige, Phoebe played a combination of the sexy one and The Ditz. Once Prue passed away, Piper took on her role as the wise Cool Big Sis but still had her Deadpan Snarker traits intact.

Played for Drama with Kyra the Seer. She is a demon and cannot feel human emotions, but her visions allow her to experience them somewhat, so she wishes to be turned into a human so she can feel them properly.
