* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The Minbari Fighting Pike, a SimpleStaff that collapses into a small cylinder about the size of your hand and [[FreudWasRight grows rapidly when firmly shaken]]. Most prominently used by a virgin who says that playing with it helps him relax. ** Lampshaded by Marcus when he's describing it to G'kar after [[BigDamnHeroes saving G'kar]] from a BadGuyBar full of people ready to turn him over to the Centauri:

In the bad timeline, without [[spoiler:Babylon 4]] to serve as a forward base for the Minbari, the Shadows do not take the losses that they did in the Prime Timeline. The Shadows come out of their hibernation cycle (which allows them to survive into modernity) much sooner than they should. [=B5=] can't put much of a fight against this larger Shadow fleet and is destroyed. Clips of this timeline are shown in "Babylon Squared" (Garibaldi's last stand against a Shadow boarding party) and "War Without End" (Ivanova' frantic message just before [=B5=] goes kaplooey).

* BadFuture: In the prime timeline, the Shadows were more cautious than they had been in previous iterations of the Shadow War. They retreat into the background because they overextended themselves during the last round and lost much of their fleet against the combined forces of the Minbari (under Valen's leadership), Vorlons and other remaining First Ones. The first couple of seasons show the Shadows gathering their strength and activating the organic ships they left to mature at the end of the last war.\\\ In the bad timeline, without [[spoiler:Babylon 4]] to serve as a forward base for the Minbari, the Shadows do not take the losses that they did in the Prime Timeline.

* AdvertisedExtra: Happened surprisingly frequently. Just having your name in the opening credits didn't necessarily mean you'd be treated like a regular character. Getting this particularly bad, however, were Na'Toth and Warren Keffer. Na'Toth only appeared in five episodes of the first season and ''two'' in the second. The initial actress didn't like the make-up and the second was found to be unsatisfactory. As for Keffer, he was only in the cast for the second season and was purposefully used as little as possible because JMS had the character forced on him.

** Delenn's androgynous-looking makeup. Also, uhh, how does one ''poison'' a Vorlon? Even if the armor was organic like his ship (it isn't), the Vorlons have been seen outside of their suits on enough occasions to raise doubt as to whether they even need it.

Franklin never said his oath as a doctor stopped him from going in. Logically his status as an authority figure (Earth Force Officer) is what prevents him from entering, uninvited and without probable cause.
** Once they arrive at the quarters belonging to Marcus' friend, Franklin declares that his medical oath prevents him from going any further. Marcus, nodding, waltzes through the door.
