Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Jem was a 1980s 65-Episode Cartoon (eventually) about the adventures of a rock star, Jem, and her band, the Holograms. Jem (not to be confused with the real pop star of the same name), the pink-haired, outrageous but kind-hearted rock star, is in reality Jerrica Benton, a young career woman. Jerrica is in charge of Starlight Music, a music label; the Starlight Foundation, a charitable organization; and Starlight House, a home for orphaned and foster girls that the foundation provides funding for, all founded by her deceased parents.Jerrica learns that shortly before her father's death, he created a computer system called "Synergy", which has the power to create Holograms and other illusions. Jerrica uses Synergy and a pair of hologram projecting earrings to turn into Jem. The only other people who know Jerrica and Jem are the same person are the members of her band, the Holograms, which consists of her younger sister, Kimber (keyboards), and their two adopted sisters Aja (lead guitar) and Shana (originally drums, then bass guitar). Later, the band gains a new member, Raya, who takes over for Shana on drums.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Most of the trouble the group faces comes in the form of Eric Raymond, a power-hungry Corrupt Corporate Executive who was Mr. Benton's former partner in the record company. His "discovery", a band called the Misfits (not to be confused with the real band) consisting of Pizzazz (guitar/vocals), Roxy (bass) and Stormer (keytar), is a group of self-described "bad girls from the wrong side of the tracks," who are constantly causing trouble to get attention and/or trying to ruin Jem. Reacting to the publicity that the Holograms get from adding Raya, they also pick up a new member, Jetta (saxophone). (Ironically, the Misfits were better received by Real Life critics than the Holograms.)The third season switches things up by adding a new rival band, The Stingers. This band consists of charismatic Riot (vocals), conniving Rapture (bass), and the seductive Minx (synthesizer). Riot is the only male lead singer, and his interest in Jem (and only Jem) leads to even more drama for the Holograms, as does Minx's insistence on chasing Rio. Pizzazz of the Misfits is interested in him too, but his lack of reciprocating deepens their rivalry with the Holograms as well.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Originally, the series was created for a line of dolls made by Hasbro. The series combined music, adventure, fashion, and Soap Opera-esque drama which gave the show its own appeal. The show originally premiered as a serial of minisodes roughly ten minutes in length that told the origin of the show and ran during a block of other short shows with a male-oriented audience. The ratings were high enough that the show was picked up as a full half-hour series in its own right and the original serial was reworked into a four-part pilot. Though the doll line was pretty much shut out by the competing Barbie toyline, the series was popular enough that it was allowed to finish its 65 episode run even after the toyline was cancelled. The cartoon frequently reran in syndication, most notably on the USA Cartoon Express throughout the early 90s. The Hub had started to play episodes of this series as of May 28, 2011, though Discovery Family removed it from their schedule in late 2015 (after the Live-Action Adaptation bombed). The show has been released twice on DVD in the US (once by Rhino, who didn't finish, and later a complete series by Shout Factory). 2011 also had Hasbro integrate Jem into a comic called Unit:E, which had Synergy, now an alien AI, assisting characters from Micronauts into helping gather heroes from around the multiverse; according to Synergy, Jerrica/Jem would help compose the "music of the spheres".A Live-Action Adaptation movie was released in October of 2015, updating the show's concept to fit into a modern day setting and reimagining it as a Coming-of-Age Story. It flopped. Badly.IDW Comics has begun an ongoing Jem series in 2015, written by Kelly Thompson with art from Sophie Campbell and other artists.Compare Kidd Video, another show centered on 80s music; Dazzler, an X-Men mainstay, another Idol Singer with light-based powers; Hannah Montana, another show based on a pop star with a secret identity;note Although this show only uses it as a source of comedy. and Christina Aguilera, who would come along many years after the show and look eerily like Jem. Not to be confused with Welsh singer Jem.

Positive Discrimination: When Christy Marx was told that they'd be adding a new Misfit, she asked to have a black misfit in order to have some diversity, but that was rejected for being offensive. She was told that American, British or Australian white villains were acceptable, hence Jetta becoming British. It wasn't an issue when she wrote bad-girl Minx as being of German origin.

 Jem / int_1996752
comment
Long-Lost Uncle Aesop: "Alone Again" introduced Laura Holloway as a new Starlight Girl that played the guitar and got into drugs. Notably, Laura was not based on any of the dolls in the toy line. So it should come as little surprise that she never appeared outside that single episode. While this is true, it's also justified because when the social worker brings Laura to Starlight Mansion, she tells Jerrica that Laura's placement there would be temporary as she was waiting for an opening at a more appropriate facility.

The Heart
 Jem / int_1badfb3a
comment
The Heart: Played with. In regards to the Misfits, there is no clear-cut example of a Heart. Every time a band member has left ("The Bands Break Up", "Roxy Rumbles", "The Stingers Hit Town") the Misfits aren't able to perform properly. In regards to the Holograms, Jem or Kimber could be considered the Heart. In The Bands Break Up, the group learns that they depended on Kimber a lot more than they thought, as she provided a number of cues the girls needed. In "The Day The Music Died", we aren't able to see how the Holograms could perform without Jem, as they were immediately folded into the Misfits.

Reformed, but Rejected: Minx in "A Change of Heart"; after nearly drowning, Minx decides to renounce her evil self-absorbed ways and be a good girl. Needless to say, despite her best efforts, Jem and the Holograms and Rio pretty much reject her and drive her back to her selfish ways, Fortunately, Minx reforms once more and permanently in the series finale.

Villain Song
 Jem / int_1ccad9a3
comment
Villain Song: Most of the songs the Misfits sing can be considered this, as they're usually inflating Pizzazz's ego, such as I Am A Giant, Universal Appeal, or Designing Woman, or about her being...well, her, such as I Love A Scandal. Makin' Mischief as well, since it seems to be the Misfits' purpose in life, and its instrumental chorus plays (along with "Outta My Way", and "Winning is Everything") whenever there's something bad about to happen. I Am A Giant can be taken as a female empowerment song (in spite of the video) and I'm Gonna Change and It Takes A Lot outright avoid the usual cliche of singing about how great they are. Mind Games for the Stingers, as it's essentually "Manipulative Bastard: The Song".

Flower in Her Hair: The song Flowers in My Hair. Also, this serves as a minor plot point - Jetta hires thugs to trash Raya's family's greenhouse, so that Raya would accept Eric's bribe for finding out Jem's secret identity. Jetta wears the flower one of the goons took back as proof, and when Raya recognizes it she backs out of the deal just in time.

Breaking the Fourth Wall: A non-comedic example. Done by several characters in "The Day the Music Died", the only episode in the entire series to do this. At one point Jem asks Riot who was he talking to. Amusingly, though, this means that Jem lacks Medium Awareness in her own show.

Parents as People: Harvey Gabor spoils Pizzazz with money but is under-involved in her life. Granted, she is difficult to deal with, but when Pizzazz reaches out to him, he is too busy to use the opportunity to get closer to her. He also entrusts her with working together with Eric Raymond on a business deal, then shows disappointment with her when the deal falls through even though 1) Pizzazz is a rock star, not a businesswoman and 2) the deal came close to being concluded but the owners decided not to part with their land due to environmental concerns, something Mr. Gabor didn't bother to find out and consider before passing judgment on his daughter.

Good Is Not Nice
 Jem / int_21f3aa44
comment
Good Is Not Nice: Certain episodes appear to demonstrate that Jem and the rest of the Holograms could be annoyingly self-righteous and smug, but never get called on it. (One situation that comes to mind was when they find the Misfits Bound and Gagged by another villain, and rather than help them, laugh in their faces.) Whether this was intentional or not, it provided a contrast to the moments where the Misfits and the Stingers broke apart from their stereotypical cartoon villain behavior and demonstrated moments of humanity. Based on this idea, this would serve to prove that rather than being two-dimensional heroes, the Holograms are just good people who have their flaws like anyone else.

Break the Haughty: In Straight From The Heart, the Holograms are introduced to a young new designer, Regine Cesaire. She's a nice girl, and talented, but the problem is that she's young, emotional, and inexperienced at working with other professionals. She designs some new clothes for an upcoming concert, but the Holograms tell her that, while they do like it, they don't feel as if they're appropriate for the concert. Regine, of course, feels insulted, and believes that Shana is actually jealous of her talent. Countess DuVoisin even explains to her that "sometimes our favorite designs are not always appropriate". The Stingers convince Regine to design for them, but once her "novelty" wears off they decide to keep her around just to screw with her head. Regine returns to the Holograms in tears, but they show no hard feelings towards her, and wear the outfits she designed in a show dedicated to her style.

Even Evil Has Standards: Eric Raymond usually comes up with nefarious schemes that puts Jem and the Holograms' lives in danger. But in The Princess and the Singer, when he finds out about the plot to assassinate Princess Adriana (with Jem and the Holograms being collateral damage) he and the Misfits rush to the scene to try and stop it. In Last Resorts, Jem and the Holograms are doing a concert to raise money to save a resort from foreclosure and Eric Raymond wants to buy it. Eric might have no qualms about scaring people from staying in the resort but his reaction when he learns the banker would go as far as gravely injure the Holograms suggests he doesn't approve of this.

Just Eat Gilligan: 99% of Jerrica's problems would be over if she'd just do the sensible thing and press charges against the Misfits for theft, vandalism, and recklessly endangering the lives of the Holograms and the Starlight Girls. The show addressed this a grand total of once, in which Eric implied that lawyers can do anything if you're rich. Nonetheless, this would only work for so long and isn't really going to be much good at, say, getting you off for the attempted murder of your rivals. Pizzazz's father is also wealthy, but the show also established early on that he pretty much cut her off for being out of control. And on the flipside, the Misfits (who are just as popular and successful as Jem and the Holograms) would probably be better off if they would just ignore Jem and stop trying to upstage their rivals. Multiple episodes show them as being insanely popular, respected as musicians, and widely regarded in the industry as just as good as Jem and the Holograms, even beating them for a major industry award. Feuding with Jem just leads to more frustration and humiliation.

Minion with an F in Evil: Stormer from The Misfits is always the first to stop her friends from being truly evil, the first to tip off the good guys, and the first to make friends with the good guys. She's mainly in the Misfits because she's a total pushover.

Story Arc: The movie contract the Five-Episode Pilot mentions as one of the prizes in the Battle of the Bands competition is the basis for one. The three-parter "Starbright", the first post-pilot episodes, chronicles the film's making and release. The "Hollywood Jem" two-parter that closes "season two" (by The Other Wiki's listing) picks it up again when Jem is nominated for a Best Actress Oscar. There's also a running subplot in the latter two stories about Kimber being romanced by two men. Another running storyline is Ba Nee's search for her father.

Flashy Protagonists, Bland Extras: All the major characters have brightly coloured '80s Hair but background characters usually don't. This normally wouldn't be unusual considering the setting, but it's been shown that the characters are born with their hair colours. This trope's usage extends to family, such as Raya being the only one in her family with pink hair.

Would Hurt a Child: When Eric decides to hold Ashley hostage, he gets a call and has to leave for an appointment so he leaves her in the care of the Misfits much to their chagrin. She tries to run, but the Misfits chase her down, tie her up and stuff her in a trunk before locking it. She begs Stormer for help , but the other misfits call Stormer soft so she leaves Ashley in the trunk and the three of them exit the room to tune their instruments for the concert. Made worse by the fact that the trunk was apparently trash scheduled to be destroyed. Rio saves her seconds before she gets crushed. (Whether the Misfits knew that the trunk would be crushed is debateable though.)

Downer Ending

comment
Downer Ending: "Video Wars"; Clash has a chance at a new life when she pretends to be a different person in order to make an embarrassing tour video of Jem, in hopes of getting made a full-on member of the Misfits. The plot fails and the Misfits reject her. Despite being pissed off at her, Jem offers to give Clash a second chance by pointing out how the Misfits don't care about her and only let her hang around them so she can do their dirty work. Clash rejects Jem's olive branch and denounces Jem/proclaims that the Misfits ARE her friends. Only to find the Misfits are in their van and driving away, with Pizzazz outright telling her to get lost when she begs her to stop so that she can leave with them. Add to the fact that this is the last (speaking) appearance of Clash in the series, and it creates a mega downer ending for the character (basically rejected by her idols and having purposely re-burnt her bridges with Jem after Jem stuck her neck out and forgave her). "Father's Day" and "A Change of Heart" are also depressing episodes, especially when you consider that Pizzazz and Minx are both screwed over by the Holograms and their self-righteousness and, whether deserved or not, it's pretty sad.

Howard Sands is a minor character with the same bent. The same goes for the Countess Danielle DuVoisin, who would often help out Jem and the Holograms with the use of things like her private yacht and villa.

comment
Missing Mom: The only mothers we see on this show are Raya's, Jetta's, Riot's, and Jerrica/Kimber's. Out of all of them, only Raya's is unsupportive. Jacqui was a musician herself (though she died years prior to the cartoon), Riot's mom was (unlike his dad) was supportive of his pursuits and pretty much the only time we actually see a kinder side of Riot, and Jetta's mom was supportive enough to help her try to perpetuate her Celebrity Lie. Raya's mom loved her but simply felt she should be staying to help out the family business as opposed to pursuing her musical dreams. Pizzazz's mother abandoned her when she (Pizzazz) was a small kid. An unused episode was to have them reunite but the series was cancelled before it could be produced. Ba Nee's mom's death was established pretty early in the series. She's shown in the final episode via her father's flashbacks and an old portrait of her.

 Jem / int_6ae4dedd
comment
The Unfair Sex: The show takes a very lopsided approach to cheating. In one episode, "Midsummer Night Madness", Jem, in addition to having a relationship with Rio in both her Jem and Jerrica persona, creates a new identity to test him. He fails when he shows interest in "Jamie", causing her to doubt his faithfulness - though she's later convinced to be okay with it because he only keeps falling for her personalities. However, in later episodes – "Riot's Hope", for example – Jem flirts with and nearly kisses Riot.

Honest John's Dealership: Near the end of "Roxy Rumbles", a potential buyer decided to read the contract before buying the car. It was a wise decision as, while he was reading it, the car blew up.

Clark Kenting: Eric and the Misfits' failed attempts at trying to find out who Jem really is despite the fact she clearly looks and sounds like Jerrica. Of course, Jerrica can pull this off because Synergy can (and does) show Jem and Jerrica in the same place at the same time.

Gaslighting
 Jem / int_727a65e0
comment
Gaslighting: An unintentional example in-universe. The Misfits get paid by a rich fan of Jem to find out who she is, so they get a bunch of actresses to pass themselves off as Jem's friends and family in order to get her to admit who she really is. The whole experience completely disorients Jem, especially when she's presented with video footage of her supposed "childhood" (that is, as Jem, not Jerrica Benton). The stress of seeing all her friends act like they don't really know her, pestering her to tell them who she really is, and then actually seeing Jerrica Benton (an actress who was late) almost causes Jem to have a total breakdown.

Suicide Watch: The episode "A Change of Heart", Minx decides to become nicer after Rio saves her from drowning. Her bandmates Rapture and Riot don't like this sudden change in personality and kick her out. With nowhere to turn to, Minx flees to Rio and when he rejects her she tries to jump off a building. The rest of the episode revolves around Riot and the Holograms walking on eggshells around Minx as she tries to pay back her imagined debt to Rio.

From Bad to Worse: After Jem, the Holograms, and most of the production staff quit the "Starbright" movie because of Eric Raymond and the Misfits, the Misfits decide to have the entire movie redone so it's all about them, while the Holograms start filming the original "Starbright" script. Then MORE staff members quit due to Pizzazz's whining and constant demands, until numerous union heads have the production shut down because of Eric's multiple violations. The Misfits decide to stop anyway, tired of all the work, and claim that "they have enough scenes". When the movie is released it's, naturally, a total bomb, while "Starbright" is a smash hit.

Hair Colors: Again, it was the Eighties. Though rather strangely, the pastel hair colors of Aja and Shana seem to be natural since they already had blue and purple hair (respectively) when the Bentons adopted them as children. Stormer's might be natural too: her brother has the same hair color as she does. Even Pizzazz's olive green hair is shown to have already been that way when she was a little girl during a brief flashback in "Father's Day". It's likely just a case of Anime Hair / You Gotta Have Blue Hair.

Sore Loser: In "Glitter and Gold", the Holograms and The Misfits compete in a record sales competition and The Holograms win by one record. Despite the fact that, as Stormer points out, The Misfits sold half a million records, Pizzazz still throws a major tantrum over losing to The Holograms. Then again, several of those records were bought by people paid by Eric to buy them, so Stormer's statement wasn't the good news it'd seem (especially since it just drives the point home to the egotistical Pizzazz that even when she cheats and buys extra records, Jem is so much more popular that she still wins.) An irate Eric slaps Jerrica in the face when The Misfits lose to Jem and the Holograms in the Battle of the Bands, and he loses control of his half of Starlight Music.

Riot's father.

Later when Riot was kicked out of the army when he went went AWOL and became a Stinger he was disowned by his father when he returned home. It wasn't until years later that they made up.

Expository Hairstyle Change: In "Riot's Hope", during the flashback showing the time when Riot joined the Army, his then-medium-length hair is clipped down to a very out-of-character crewcut before basic training. After Riot goes AWOL, his hair starts getting longer, until in real time, some five years after his dishonorable discharge from the military and at the height of his success as a pop singer, it is longer than the hair of some of the female characters.

When Craig tells Aja Stormer is his secret Aja gets mad and it only gets worse when he introduces himself as "Craig Phillips" and Stormer as "Mary Phillips". Even Craig's bandmates lampshade how badly Craig went about the situation and decide to leave the room. Aja slaps Craig and runs away crying. It isn't until a moment later that Kimber informs her Stormer is Craig's little sister, not his wife. Apparently the fact Craig and Stormer are the only characters with deep blue hair went unnoticed by Aja.

Frickin' Laser Beams: Pizzazz gets hold of a laser gun from Techrat. This terrifies Eric Raymond, and rightly so, as because of her shooting at the billboard on top of Starlight Music it smashes into Jerrica's office. Synergy isn't capable of Hard Light, but interference from one of Techrat's devices show that her special effects lasers are actually quite dangerous at full power. Both of those examples make sense, given the show shares a universe with several other laser gun users.

Department of Child Disservices: In one episode, Deirdre runs away from Starlight House because both Jerrica and Jem are too busy to talk to her. Ba Nee decides to tag along, and Chrissie goes with them to try to keep them out of trouble. Seeing a chance to get Jerrica into trouble, Pizzazz calls in a tip to Child Services claiming that the children are being mistreated. The social worker who shows up in response does nothing to investigate the actual conditions at Starlight House or the details of why the girls ran away, and declares that if the missing girls are not back by the end of the week, he'll recommend that all the Starlight girls be placed in new foster care and Starlight House be shut down.

Secret Identity Identity: Jerrica goes through this a lot. Synergy doesn't help either – a rather Broken Aesop episode had Jerrica take on a third identity through Synergy's subtle manipulation, in order to prove to her that Rio loves her because he fell in love with her again when she had presented herself as a third identity. While the point was "Rio loves Jerrica's personality and that's why he fell for Jem", the episode also gives the impression Rio really doesn't care that much about being loyal to Jerrica since he'll fall into the arms of any woman that's close enough to her.

There Are No Therapists
 Jem / int_96fbeaf
comment
There Are No Therapists: Ba Nee probably wouldn't have been so willing to label the next person she sees who closely resembles her father (based on the few details she knows) if she had someone to talk to. She's one of the few Starlight Girls who has not accepted the fact that she's an orphan, which actually plays out for the better when the Holograms find her actual dad. Kimber should probably discuss her issues with her father's death with someone, but she deals with it on her own. Pizzaz could seriously use therapy, but it's unlikely she would go to one anyway. Averted in Alone Again, when Laura is brought to a support group of similarly-aged drug addicts. Averted again when Danse talks to Jerrica about funding for the runaway shelter she volunteers at, explaining that there are counselors there that the kids can talk to about their problems.

Time Travel: In "Journey Through Time". Part of the episode involves Jem and the Holograms appearing in a concert in the middle of the London Blitz as themselves only with period clothing, and seem unconcerned with hiding their identities. However, not that many people saw that particular performance, and probably only one or two people are still alive who would wonder why the exact same people in 1942 and 1987 seem not to have aged.

Cut Lex Luthor a Check: It's repeatedly shown that the Misfits are genuinely popular and successful musicians in their own right. If they weren't so fixated on one-upping Jem and the Holograms, they'd save themselves endless frustration and humiliation and would really have nothing to complain about. The same could be said for Eric Raymond. It costs him a fortune just to keep the Misfits out of trouble (to say nothing of directing a movie starring them that was a financial disaster) and he'd be better off promoting a group that was less trouble.

Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas
 Jem / int_9fe35833

Even Bad Girls Love Their Daddies: Pizzazz's attention grabbing is usually an attempt to get affection from her father. After her mother abandoned her, her dad didn't know how to give her the love she needed, so he spoiled her, and is sadly aware that he's somewhat responsible for the way she is now. And Clash is genuinely adored by her father, and vice versa, although he's almost as big a jerk as she is (to other people). Pizzazz originally believed that "no dad adores their kid", until she saw Clash and her dad together and was visibly shocked.

Jem and the Holograms record a song called "There's A Melody Playing", which not only is a Silly Love Song in and of itself, but actually describes the trope a bit. The Misfits steal the master tape and rerecord the music track with their own vocals and lyrics into "There Ain't Nobody Better", which is about Pizzazz boasting about how awesome she is.

Adaptation Dye-Job
 Jem / int_a4414a05
comment
Adaptation Dye-Job: The Jem doll always had blond hair – even when other similar looking characters had pink hair. The realistic-style promotional art (such as this◊) gave her pink hair with blonde bangs. That's because the Jem doll also doubled as the Jerrica doll. The blonde bangs were so that you could hide the pink part of the hair with Jerrica's blue and white striped hat so that only the blonde Jerrica part of her hair remained. Pizzazz was always depicted in doll and animated form with bright green hair and accessories. However, in the R1 DVD release by Rhino, the original masters were used - which had not been properly color timed and depicted Pizzazz with a dull olive brown instead. To cover this, promotional art with the character for the DVD release also recolored the greens to browns. The Shout Factory release (and the Hub broadcasts) used the broadcast masters, which had already been correctly color timed. In Jem picture books, Rio is depicted with brown hair. The books also depict Jem and Shana with their toy designs (Jem having blonde bangs and Shana having a rounder afro) despite being cartoon-based. The 1985 annual portrays Zipper with long, red hair. The 1987 annual has an Eric with white in his hair, a redheaded Mrs. Bailey, a brunette Rio, and Eric's secretary with purple hair.

Then they learn that Ba Nee, one of the foster girls at Starlight House needs an experimental laser surgery procedure costing $250,000 to avoid becoming blind, so they have no choice but to come back. Eric even got Jerrica to agree to becoming his assistant as a condition to let Jem and the Holograms back.

Dramatic Irony: Regarding Video and Clash. Video has mentioned that maintaining her career as a filmmaker is difficult work, and that she has to make each film top the other. Clash refuses to believe the Misfits don't care about her and performed a Heel–Face Door-Slam of her own doing in Video Wars. The one person Video has to outdo is herself, and Clash is her own worst enemy. Despite their bickering, they're Not So Different.

Abusive Parents: Riot's father.

Later when Riot was kicked out of the army when he went went AWOL and became a Stinger he was disowned by his father when he returned home. It wasn't until years later that they made up. In "The Music Awards", the Starlight Girls who run away meet Danny, a boy whose father kicked him out of the house. An unmade sequel episode would have showed his father was an Alcoholic Parent.

Holograms: When Jem and Jerrica need to be in the same room at the same time, her Magical Computer Synergy can take care of that by using her earrings to create a hologram of Jem (and vice-versa). Sometimes, holograms are also used to create distractions.

You Gotta Have Blue Hair
 Jem / int_be7ff283
comment
You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Aja, Stormer, Stormer's brother Craig, and Regine. This isn't even an anime! Raya's hair is pink, and flashbacks seem to indicate that it's been that way since childhood. So either she's been dying her hair since she was 7, or pink is a natural hair color in the Jemverse. Rio has purple hair, and Jerrica has a lovely purple hat that compliments it perfectly. It's apparently natural, since when he has stubble in Island of Deception it is also purple. Shana also has lavender hair and Pizzazz has green hair, both that show up in childhood flashbacks. Astral has blue and purple hair. A flashback to when she was a newborn clearly shows that Clash was born with purple hair. Danse has multicolored hair. Or possibly she grows ribbons out of her head. It's not clear. Averted with Jerrica, who is blonde. When she transforms into Jem, though, her hologrammed hair is pink. When she was gaslighted in one episode the characters assumed she had natural pink hair and showed her "family videos" of Jem with pink hair.

Evil Gloating
 Jem / int_c0d598fe
comment
Evil Gloating: The Misfits' song "Trapped" is definitely this trope. When Jem and Riot get shipwrecked in "The Day the Music Died", their respective bands can no longer play properly. Pizzazz absorbs the rest of the members of The Holograms and The Stingers, turning The Misfits into a supergroup of sorts. They then sing "Top Of The Charts", with Pizzazz actually saying the line "Pardon me while I gloat!"

Healthcare Motivation / Ill Girl: In the three-part "Starbright" storyline, the Holograms keep on going with a movie shoot the Misfits have bought themselves into because they need money for an operation to save Starlight Girl Ba Nee's sight. Ultimately the production splits into rival films, and when the Holograms' is a hit, the money is raised and Ba Nee's sight is saved.

Loves My Alter Ego: Rare male examples: Rio dates Jerrica and waffles with affection for Jem because he doesn't know they're the same person. Or as the Agony Booth puts it, Rio "says goodbye to his girlfriend, already planning to cheat on her with his second girlfriend, who by the way is his girlfriend. I'm sorry, I'll never get over that." Riot from the third season inverts the trope. He likes Jem but not Jerrica, and has no idea why Jem keeps blowing him off.

Hard Work Hardly Works: Averted with The Stingers; the episode "Riot's Hope" showed that they began with almost nothing, and went from busking in the streets to becoming one of the biggest bands in the world. The song "It's a Hard, Hard Life" showcases this. For Jem and the Holograms, it's subverted: while Emmett Benton left them everything they needed to become successful, they had to keep working at it to stay on top. The episode "Glitter 'N Gold" shows that without constant work, The Misfits are able to get a leg up on Jem and the Holograms.

Abandoned War Child: Ba Nee, one of the Starlight Girls, is a more G-rated example than most. She was born in Vietnam, was sent to America after her mother's death, and lives at a foster home that Jem and the Holograms run. She is obsessed with finding her Disappeared Dad, however the others consider him dead. All that Ba Nee knows is that he's a redhead, so she has a tendency to latch onto random redheaded men and think they're her father. She finds her father in the finale. It turns out he married her mother in Vietnam however had to go back to war. He had amnesia due to an injury and didn't remember his wife. After being reunited with Ba Nee, they live together.

Dreadful Musician: Clash, one of the reasons Pizzazz won't actually let her in The Misfits. She is found out as Jem's impersonator in "One Jem Too Many" when she tries to sing "I Believe In Happy Endings" and is terrible at it. The Limp Lizards are, as well, demonstrated in their song "Broken Glass". This only seems to extend to their lead vocalist, however, as they seem to have a following, and are quite competent when backing up Kimber and Stormer on instruments.

The only character seen wearing the same thing virtually the entire time is Eric Raymond.

Five-Episode Pilot: "Totally Outrageous", though the original airing began as fifteen five-minute segments that were sandwiched between five-minute segments of several other action-oriented "boys" cartoons, all on a show called "Super Sunday" (or "Super Saturday" depending on the station/market). Amazingly, the show caught on. Christy Marx was then asked to add short bits of material to the five-minute segments in order to expand three segments at a time into half-hour shows. The original fifteen five-minute segments were turned into the five-part opening episodes of the 65 half-hour series.

Vitriolic Best Buds: The Misfits can be seen this way. They may act like jerks to one another (or in Stormer's case, act likes jerks to her), but whenever a member leaves, the band isn't able to function properly. Their skills complement one another, as evidenced when Stormer and Roxy left the group at certain points. Although how they came back differed greatly: Roxy left because Pizzazz and Jetta made fun of her, and they only reason she came back was because Eric reminded her that she was under contract. Stormer left because she was tired of the others' never taking her thoughts into consideration. She's probably under contract with them as well, but the reason Eric hadn't brought this up was because she signed another contract with Kimber to produce an album. He was hoping the two wouldn't come through on their end of the bargain, and he would be able to acquire a share of Starlight Music. When the album came out and was a hit, the Misfits finally admitted that they needed Stormer without trying to bribe her. She agreed to come back, on the condition that they remember she is an equal member of the group and her thoughts would be taken into better consideration. The other Misfits were all shocked that Pizzazz chose being with Riot over them, and all showed concern when they realized Rapture was screwing her over.

Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Jem and the Holograms quit the "Starbright" movie twice because of Eric Raymond and the Misfits. They came back after they quit the first time because they needed the money for Ba Nee's operation, and even after Jem almost lost her life performing a stunt on her own she wouldn't quit. It was after Kimber was nearly killed thanks to Roxy and Clash messing with the special effects did the Holograms quit for good. The second time, they were joined by Rio and most of the production staff, fed up with Raymond and the Misfits.

Start My Own: After Eric Raymond lost his half of Starlight Music, the Misfits needed another music company to promote their albums so Pizzazz asked her father to start one. In "KJEM", Jem took over a radio station so the previous owner wouldn't lose it to a former employee who had started his own radio station for not liking how his former boss ran things. Kimber (from Jem and the Holograms) and Stormer (from the Misfits) were feeling underappreciated and temporarily became a duo.

Music Genre Dissonance: Jem and the Holograms are considered as a rock band in-universe, but their music is plain pop. The Misfits met a similar mislabel: They look like tough glam punkers, and have been classified as Punk Rock in some instances, despite playing New Wave. The Stingers are clearly supposed to be a rock or metal band, and Riot looks like a glam rock or hair metal singer, however their music is pop.

Karmic Jackpot: Stormer's status as the "good Misfit" often allowed her to escape whatever karmic justice the other Misfits endured. She was the only one to get a genuine love interest, and towards the end of the series, the Holograms began to see her as a friend.

Call-Forward: In one of the flashbacks seen in "Out of the Past", Jacqui Benton tells her daughters Jerrica and Kimber of how she enjoys providing homes for foster children and that she hopes them to one day do the same, which calls forward to Jerrica and Kimber as well as their foster sisters Aja and Shana running the Starlight foster home after Jerrica and Kimber's parents die.

Art Evolution: After the five episode pilot, the first season had a slightly higher animation budget for music videos and character designs, but starting in the second season there is a very noticeable improvement, with much more natural motion and hair that doesn't look quite as stiff.

While You Were in Diapers: One episode invokes this trope with Bobby Bailey's criticism of Jem and the Holograms' version of a song he did back in the The '50s. He told Kimber he did it while her father was in diapers.

Dark Reprise
 Jem / int_f3fd818b
comment
Dark Reprise: "Take It Or Leave It", when first used in "The Stingers Hit Town", is meant to demonstrate that the Stingers have no problem being callous and selfish. When used in "Riot's Hope", it's to show that Riot's father is unashamedly disappointed in him despite his success, and that he'll probably never accept him for who he is. Jem and the Holograms record a song called "There's A Melody Playing", which not only is a Silly Love Song in and of itself, but actually describes the trope a bit. The Misfits steal the master tape and rerecord the music track with their own vocals and lyrics into "There Ain't Nobody Better", which is about Pizzazz boasting about how awesome she is.

Dude, Where's My Respect?: Stormer is the one who composes most of the Misfits music, and is the overall creative force of the group. Do her band mates actually give her the credit? Nope. Added to that, she was the one to suggest putting Jetta in the band. Jetta treats Stormer worse than Pizzazz does is most later episodes.

Pet the Dog: Riot's Hope is one gigantic PTD for both Riot and the Stingers. It explains Riot's relationship with his parents and how his decision to become a musician led to a falling out between him and his father, who wanted him to join the military. It also shows that, unlike both the Holograms and the Misfits, the Stingers had no money when they began and had to work from the ground up, starting off with street shows and touring Europe until they became famous enough to head to America. As Riot is explaining his life story to Jem, not once does he try to hit on her or make a move, demonstrating that his mother's ailing health was more important.
