* RedHerring: In "LOST HERITAGE," the members of Section 9 are operating on the assumption that the assassin they are looking for is going to use a sniper rifle to try and assassinate a foreign politician. [[spoiler: Then Togusa finds a half-naked schoolboy BoundAndGagged in a bathroom stall, and Batou realizes that the sniper plot was just a ruse. In reality, the assassin's plan was to steal a teenager's uniform so he could get close enough to the politician to stab him to death.]]

* WeaponOfChoice:
** While the members of Section 9 are shown using various weapons across the series, in heavy combat situations, they are mostly seen using the standard issue ''Seburo C26a assault rifle'', and environmental variants. The weapon was inspired by the [[ArtImitatesLife FN F2000.]] Even Togusa, who prefers to use his Mateba Autorevolver, uses this weapon in gunfights.
** Additionally, most Section 9 members wield the Seburo M-5 pistol (chambered for the 7N7 5.45x18mm pistol cartridge) as their primary sidearm, exceptions being Togusa with his afore mentioned Mateba 2008M (a futuristic version of the real life 2006M) and Batou, who wields a futuristic Browning BDA variant chambered for .45 ACP and called the M-7.
* WeddingRingDefense: Chief Aramaki assumes the friend he meets in London is married, she's actually using this trope to keep men at bay.

* WillTheyOrWontThey: Batou and Motoko, to the point that even their voice actors are well aware of it and poke fun when they speak at conventions. No real resolution is ever reached, aside from a very faint MaybeEverAfter in the end of Solid State Society. [[spoiler: Batou puts his arm around her and she doesn't throw him into the pool.]] Yes, that's the closest their romantic and sexual tension ever comes to going anywhere.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: An old woman found in ''NOT EQUAL'' - [[spoiler: she's a young girl who was kidnapped 16 years ago, and has been rapidly aged by her experiences as a hostage.]] Togusa is visibly shocked to learn she's younger than he is.

* ZergRush: The main tactic of the New World Brigade after Section 9 raids their scrubber plant hideout. It's effective to the point of driving them to a corner until Ishikawa arrives with backup.

* ThrowawayGuns: Batou seems to do this a lot, such as in ''ANNIHILATION'' when he exhausts all the ammo in his minigun and simply abandons it. Motoko does this with her pistol when Gayle chases her in his armed suit in ''ERASER''. No point in hanging onto an empty pistol if the bullets don't even affect it.

* RiddleForTheAges: A small yet at the same time large one posed at the end of MAKE UP. A woman Paz slept with in the past became obsessed with him to the point of creating a perfect physical replica of his body and apparently his ghost. They get into a knife fight, both sustain identical wounds, and one ends up with a knife in the eye. At the end the Major casually mentions it is possible the real Paz was killed and the imposter decided to take over his life. The episode ends with Batou saying "Maybe." The bloodless slashed chest and blood trickling from the eye of the Pazu who got killed proves that the real Pazu lived.
