* AntiVillain: Surprisingly, given some of the below tropes, some Romulan antagonists (The nameless Romulan Commander from TOS, and Nero) have sympathetic motivations, backstories, or otherwise admirable traits.



* CardCarryingVillain: Nearly every other belligerent race in the Trek 'Verse has some has some lofty goal or principle they feel justifies their behavior, be it honor and glory (The Klingons), "Perfection" (The Borg), imposing Order upon a chaotic Universe (The Dominion) or ensuring their people never go hungry (The Cardassians). The Romulans lack such justifications, brazenly bragging about their superiority and LackOfEmpathy. They come the closest out of all the major races in the franchise to being evil for the sake of being evil.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Out of all the recurring antagonists in the franchise, the Romulans come the closest to playing this trope straight as it's usually depicted. The Borg may seem more traditional, but then the Borg are a HiveMind. Romulans actually have free will...and they nearly always use it ForTheEvulz



* DrinkOrder: Romulan ale (or "Kali-Fal") is a bright-blue, alcoholic beverage. Made illegal in Kirk's time, the embargo was lifted when the Rolumans agreed to help drive out the Dominion.

* StealthInSpace: The Klingons originated it, but the Romulans almost never fly anywhere without the cloak permanently switched on.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: When the ''Enterprise'' first encountered the Borg, Q didn't say anything about the assimilation of the crew, just their technology. And even later when Picard was turned into Locutus, there wasn't much indication that the Borg intended to convert other people. It took a while before the Borg started to assimilate every life form they encountered. By the time Seven of Nine showed up, it appeared the writers had abandoned the idea of the Borg as a biological species unto themselves; they seemed to be wholly composed of other species they had assimilated.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Emphasized in "The Best of Both Worlds." Riker's increasingly desperate attempts to buy his crew more time though protracted negotiation are instantly seen by the Borg for what they are.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: They take no chances when it comes to taking people prisoner. Even when placed in a locked cell, they'll hang their captives upside down by their legs to ensure that they absolutely cannot escape. Before taking a prisoner out to be interrogated, they'll go in three at a time and stun their target before dragging them out of their cell.
