* WeaponOfMassDestruction: Wormholes, and ''[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone how!]]'' They produce [[ApocalypseHow Apocalypses]] in two delightful flavors. Low setting: point one end at an enemy [[ThatsNoMoon dreadnaught]] or planet. Poke other end into star. Result: portable, ''localized'' and '''directed''' '''''supernova'''''. That not enough for you? Okay. [[RealityBreakingParadox Poke one into itself]]. Result:

* TookALevelInBadass: John Crichton takes multiple levels of badass over four seasons: he starts out as a clueless nerd, and by series end is so badass he manages to intimidate two entire galactic empires into leaving him the frell alone by threatening to wipe out the universe. '''''THE ENTIRE FREAKING UNIVERSE!''''' And what makes it {{Badass}} is he can ''absolutely'' pull it off.

** 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").

They do learn to control it as they mature (and D'argo does later in the show), but D'Argo is very young for his race.

** Stark's babbling of "My side, your side." It starts when John first meets Stark after having been captured by Scorpius, and Stark begins babbling about splitting their shared cell into "my side, your side, ''my side, YOUR SIDE!"'' As Stark leaves Moya after being rescued, the gag doesn't become a proper running gag until after his ressurection almost a season later; when he does get into the habit, he uses it almost whenever he's under stress- when trying to keep John away from a control panel, when seperating a group of arguing bounty hunters, even when having to share a room with Rygel.

** Crichton's inability to pronounce the names of any of the alien species they meet. Played with ''brilliantly'' in "The Ugly Truth," a RashomonStyle episode in which every character tells the events of the episode from their perspective. When it's Crichton's turn, ''every'' character mispronounces the Aliens of the Week's species name the same way he did, because ''he's'' telling the story.
** The ''rest'' of the cast becomes TheMalaproprer whenever they try speaking English, or use human slang or phrases. IE D'Argo counting "Mippippippi" or saying he prefers to "go out on a swing" (swinging), and Aeryn mentioning a creepy female character gives her a "woody" (she meant "willies"). Crichton himself lampshades it in an image spot in "Dog with Two Bones" when he remarks to a hallucination of Aeryn (who's frustrated at her difficulties to learning English) that it's is a difficult language and that half the time his friends don't understand what ''he's'' saying.

Added DiffLines:

* SoulEating: The apparently-magical recurring villain Maldis claims to eat souls, although this might just be mystification of something like LifeEnergy.

* 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.
