** The Shadows are actually a rare case of AlwaysChaoticEvil KnightsTemplar due to BlueAndOrangeMorality. They believe what they do is best for the younger races.

* FirstContact: Due to a [[NobodyEverComplainedBefore series of cultural misunderstandings]], the First Contact between the Earthers and the Minbari lead directly to a full-blown war of genocide that was only barely stopped short of wiping out Earth.

---> "What do ''I'' want? I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price. I would look up into your lifeless eyes and wave like this. Can you and your associates arrange that for me, Mr. Morden?"

** A fifth season episode had a downbelow gang roughing up a Ranger, hoping that it would get station security called off them. It worked, mainly through Delenn invoking the Rangers' jurisdiction over the matter.

* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.\\\
