Why She Rocks

  1. Zoey is a very memorable character, as she’s very sweet and caring, and also strong, brave, and smart.
  2. She has a good sibling bond with her brother, Dustin, and are there for each other when they need to be.
  3. She is a very good friend, especially to her roommates, Dana, Nicole, Lola, and Quinn. She’s always there for them and helps them out in many situations and tries to keep them out of trouble.
  4. She has many good outfits.
  5. Most of the time when she does something wrong, she will admit to her mistakes and try to fix them.
  6. She had plenty of funny moments, such as when she, along with the rest of the cast, does the Macalana (a parody of the Macarena) in the episode "Zoey's Balloon", and it doesn't even need a laugh track to tell you that it’s funny.
  7. She also has plenty of heartwarming moments, like when she understands why her brother wants to hang out with her, and when she and Chase finally kiss.
  8. Zoey is also not afraid to move on, such as when Dana and Nichole become absent later on in the show, as well as when Chase was absent during most of Season 4, and she will always remember them.
  9. While she didn’t have the best relationship with James, it at least showed some positive things, like moving on until Chase comes back, and she at least broke up with him on a positive note.
  10. Zoey’s relationship with Chase is awesome, as they are there for each other when needed, such as when Zoey comforts Chase after his grandmother died in "Chase's Grandma", and when they danced together in "Dance Contest".
    • It was at their best in "Chasing Zoey", when Chase finally returned, both of them became a couple with a romantic kiss, and they danced at the prom with their friends and they would spend the summer together in Hawaii.
    • Also, in the 2015 short, "What Did Zoey Say?", Chase finds out what she said in her time capsule (from "Time Capsule") about him, and that she has stated "Maybe he's even my soulmate." That was so heartwarming, that not only definitely revisits her great feelings for Chase from the show, but is also one of Nickelodeon’s greatest moments.

Bad Qualities

  1. She is somewhat of a Mary Sue because she's perfect at everything she does and everyone likes her, plus she gets way too much focus.
  2. She is pretty unlikable sometimes, such as in "Prank Week" "Quinn's Date" , "Logan Gets Cut Off" and "Anger Management".
  3. Her short relationship with James isn’t the best.
  4. It is unknown why she and Chase broke up in the first place. Thankfully, it is known that they will get back together after the events of "What Did Zoey Say?".
