* OctopoidAliens: The extra-dimensional alien encountered by Crichton in the episode "Through the Looking Glass" resembled a cephalopod dwelling in a strange non-aquatic medium.

Added DiffLines:

* VisualPun: The Nebarri are a race of humanoids who obey strict authoritarian social mores laid down by "the Establishment" and brainwash anyone who doesn't conform. They're also completely monochrome. They have a BlackAndWhiteMorality.

* WarringNatures: The villainous Scorpius is half-Sebacean, half-Scarran, and most of villainous actions are due to his seeking to aid the Sebaceans against the Scarrans by getting whatever technology he can.
** This conflict is reflected more literally in his biology: Sebaceans have an extreme intolerance for heat, while Scarrans produce heat in huge amounts - thus, maintaining equilibrium is something that has always preoccupied Scorpius.
** A large part of his hatred of the Scarrans is due to having been created as a prototype for a hybrid slave-race. By raping his mother. And keeping her alive for the ''years''-long pregnancy as she begged to be killed.



* * WorldOfBadass: Between the [[BadassBookworm hero]] who builds [[DoomsdayDevice doomsday devices]], the two [[PregnantBadass pregnant badasses]] (one heads up an armada, the other one guns down enemies while in hard labor), the priest who used to be an [[HitmanWithAHeart assassin]], the skinny girls who know WaifFu (and will resort to a GroinAttack if necessary), and the [[BadassBureaucrat mousy]] [[BadassGay gay]] guy who survives three [[BadBoss bad bosses]], it's hard to find anyone who isn't a badass by normal standards. Even [[TheScrappy a scrappy]] will be able to melt metal with her voice or mystically survive dispersal at the molecular level.

** Crichton invokes this when he powers up the weapons of Braca's ship in a "tactical-free zone" above the Royal Planet. The automated defense system tells them to power down their weapons and respond, and begin firing on them when they don't ("Look At The Princess - I Do, I Think").

* TractorBeam: Moya possesses one of these called a docking web. In one episode, Crichton calls it a Tractor Beam by name, but no one has any idea what it is until he describes what it does.

* YouLookFamiliar: Actress Francesca Buller, wife of series star Ben Browder, played no less than four alien characters, one for each season (though she reprised the last role in the ''Peacekeeper Wars'' miniseries). [[WhatCouldHaveBeen There were plans to bring back her fourth character Ahkna, for the Season 5, and there were plans for other characters she played to make an appearance]]. Several other actors returned for multiple roles, but Buller is the most frequent example.
** An example of an actor playing a guest star becoming a cast regular: Melissa Jaffer, who played old Nilaam in Season 2's "Vitas Mortis", would later join the cast as Noranti.



* YouLookFamiliar:
** Melissa Jaffer joined the regular cast as Noranti at the end of the third season after playing two different guest roles in the second: the aged Nilaam in "[[{{Recap/FarscapeS02E02VitasMortis}} Vitas Mortis]]" and the female Pilot in "[[{{Recap/FarscapeS02E05TheWayWeWerent}} The Way We Weren't]]"
** Linda Cropper played the female Plokavoi... ''Plokavian'' interrogator in "[[{{Recap.FarscapeS02E17TheUglyTruth}} The Ugly Truth]]" before being cast in the recurring role of Xhalax in the third season.

* PregnantBadass: The miniseries features not one but to of these: Aeryn, who guns down enemies ''during hard labor'', and Grayza, who leads the Peacekeeper armada while looking ready to pop.

* SamusIsAGirl: [[spoiler: Stanz]] is a triumphant example, as she's played by a male actor who appears male until the very end. Early on Zhaan remarks that she seems to be missing something expected of a bipedal anthropoid (assuming her to be male) in the crotch region, but it isn't revealed until the very end of the episode when she asks D'Argo to be her "mate" and travel the stars with her. It isn't until she clarifies that she's in love with D'Argo that it's revealed that she's actually a female of her species.

** Hubero, a Nebari who escaped from Peacekeeper experimentation in "Fractures", appears female, but reveals to Chiana that she is an [[{{Intersex}} androgen]].

** D'argo screams "CRICHTON!!" several times when his [[UnstoppableRage Luxan hyper-rage]] grabs hold of him in "Thank God It's Friday, Again".



* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: In "Thank God It's Friday, Again", D'Argo only has one guest bed on the floor of his dwelling in Sykar to offer Crichton and Zhaan, who have followed him to find out why he has become delusional. Crichton immediately offers to sleep on the floor, but Zhaan refuses his offer, opting to sleep next to him to his dismay.



* UnstoppableRage: Inverted with Crais. John, remembering that Sebeceans aren't too fond of fire, blocks Crais' pursuit by tossing a torch into a [[BottomlessPits chasm]] behind him, setting it aflame. As expected, Crais shrinks away from the heat. Maldis then pops back into reality to get Crais worked up again: He conjures up a [[{{Glamour}} vision]] of Crais' late brother, Tauvo, then reenacts his death at the hands of Crichton. Tauvo explodes into flame, his flesh melting and collapsing into a smoking corpse. His hatred refueled, Crais clears the flaming pit [[{{Determinator}} in a single bound]], and the chase is back on.

** Luxans occasionally experience ''hyper-rage'', a condition in which they become livid for several days and try to fight with other males. Crichton was on the receiving end of one of these from D'argo once ("Thank God It's Friday, Again").

Added DiffLines:

** Inverted in how Scorpius spent much of his early time admiring Crichton as a capable, intelligent and even genius tactician for getting the best of the Peacekeepers so often. When circumstances forced Scorpius to join the crew, he was utterly stunned and even disappointed to realize Crichton had no idea what the hell he was doing most of the time and his victories were all pretty much pure blind luck.
