* OnlyAFleshWound: Averted. All bullet wounds and other injuries that should be serious are treated seriously. [[spoiler: Michael is shot by Jesse in order to hit the Mook holding him. While the wound is not immediately fatal, Michael is seriously wounded and the episode ends with him passing out from his heavy blood loss and possibly on the verge of death.]]

** One gambit was used against [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Brennen]], using an IndyPloy. Brennen had some government property he wanted to sell on the black market and Michael worked to get into his inner circle, but details kept being changed around. [[XanatosSpeedChess Improvising at the last moment]] Sam screwed up the exchange with the buyers and those guys now wanted Brennen dead. He realized that if he kept the merchandise, both the government and the black market would be looking for him. So to at least keep the FBI off his trail, he got Michael to return it. This was Michael's plan at this point and even though Brennen realizes that's probably what's going on, Michael points out that regardless of what he believes is going on, it's the only possible move he can make.

** In "Brothers in Arms," Burke coerces Serrano into giving up information that his Russian overlords will punish him for giving up, "but only if he's alive." After Burke puts a pistol and one bullet on the table in front of him, Serrano asks for a cigarette.

* MindRape: James basically does this to Michael in S7, using a mixture of persistent interroogation, sleep deprivation, noise torture and finally hallucinogenic drugs.

* OminousMundanity: Major villains are referred to with a single name and they're all relatively mundane: Carla, James, Simon, Anson, [[NoNameGiven Management]]. Even the two spy rings Michael opposes have simple names: The Organization and The Family.

** Michael consistently avoids using torture or similar interrogation methods to mentally break someone, citing that torture only gets you the quickest lie to make the pain stop, which isn't really true. While using torture only is useless (unless you torture someone so extensively that they don't even have the mental faculties to lie anymore), using torture as an aid to mentally break someone is quite effective (against people who aren't trained to withstand torture). Torture aside, though, Michael very rarely uses any of the methods to physically or mentally stress someone (e.g. putting someone in stress positions, depriving them of sleep, sensory deprivation (or exposing one sense to extreme stress while blanking the others) in the downtime between interrogation sessions usually makes someone more pliable upon questioning),
