* BlobMonster: In "Toys in the Attic", the crew is attacked by a small black blob that escaped from a forgotten fridge in the back of the ship. They go hunting for it in a massive ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' homage, but find that it's more or less invincible, surviving gunshots and blasts from a flamethrower. Ed eventually manages to kill it by [[JustEatHim eating it in her sleep and digesting it.]]

* HumanShield: attempted by a mook in Spike's first showdown with Vicious. He holds Faye in front of him and holds a gun to her head, threatening to shoot if Spike doesn't surrender. Spike, ever the CombatPragmatist, simply shoots the mook in the head. Then later, another of Vicious' mooks, actually does die protecting him this way in "Jupiter Jazz, Part II".

* CultureChopSuey: The ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' universe seems to be a mishmash of Eastern and Western cultures, (not unlike Series/{{Firefly}}, another later SpaceWestern sci-fi series) with multiple languages and ethnicities. It's implied this is a result of the rapid, mishmash evacuation of Earth.

* FanService: Faye is [[MsFanservice fanservice incarnate]]. Though it's implied she does this on purpose, to distract men. Judy from Big Shots seems to be an intentional example for the sake of the show's ratings.

* {{Badass}}: The adults in the crew, and a fair few of the villains. Spike is the best of them.



** Ed's dad hands both Spike and Jet (who was ''armed'') their blue-clad behinds. This is possibly the only fight in the series where friggin' ''Spike'' is completely outclassed by a perfectly ordinary human. One wonders how different the ending would have been if Vicious had managed to run into Spike just a few seconds before the fight with Ed's dad started... Yeah, he's that BadAss.
