  • Die for Our Ship: Susanna is clingy, but she still doesn't deserve half the shit that fandom throws at her.
  • Ear Worm: That blasted Mitsuko Horie theme song!
  • Fanon Discontinuity: The Italian fans hated the Bittersweet Ending so much that they pretty much forced the Italian editors to make them a sort-of Gecko ending where Candy and Terry got together again
    • And the French broadcasters just didn't want Anthony to die. The french dub made him "fell from his horse and lost the use of his legs". And disappeared, of course. How rude, Candy. Two of the episodes were edited later to fix the problem, but elements of the fake story remained in some other episodes.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: VERY popular in Latin America, and in France where it was the very first shojo ever seen.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Considering that Candy Candy is a Shoujo manga from The Seventies, it had pretty revolutionary 'messages': "Be honest to yourself", "Don't throw away your own beliefs", "Work hard to earn what you get in life", "Don't give up on your purposes", "Romance is important, yes, but not the end and be all to a woman's life". The fandom, however, ignores almost all of them (and especially the last one) only to focus on the romantic part of the plot (which, comparatively speaking, isn't THAT big either), and especially on loudly complaining because Candy and Terry didn't end up together. Even older fans in their 30's and 40's, who should know better, fall into this trap.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped:
    • "People must work hard for their own success and independence, and if done right, they'll be greatly rewarded. No one can expect to have anything just handed to them."
    • "Romance is not the end and be-all of a person's life, and especially women. It's important, yes, and there's no sin on being a woman or a man in love, but it shouldn't be someone's only priority. And sometimes, if lovers aren't ready or aren't making each other happy, it's time to cut it off"
  • The Woobie: Candy, Patty, Anthony.
