* One-Scene Wonder: Walter Madison, the pastor Jason works with in Alaska, who appears in several episodes during the Novacom Saga and comes across as Whit-level competent. In his short appearance he not only calls Jason out when under the influence of the black boxes, but deduces Monica Stone's identity and reacts with calm verging on sarcasm when she forces him to open a safe at gunpoint.
Walter: Curtland doesn't have a blueberry festival; it's a strawberry festival. Kind of hard to confuse the two, isn't it? One is blue, the other's red.

* Spanner in the Works: Tom in the Novacom Saga. There was pretty much no way they could have foreseen Whit bringing him with to the tower and Tom being able to destroy the Imagination Station with long-distance help.

** In "Called on in Class", when Trent tries to hide in a bathroom to help him think of ways to get out of an oral report, his teacher comes to call him back to the classroom, and he mutters, "Great. No more stalling."

** Also, minor villain and {{CorruptPolitician}} Philip Glossman was written out as having been forced to resign due to a scandal involving a racial slur targeting the Japanese. The decision came after Glossman's voice, frequent Odyssey writer Paul [=McCusker=], leaving for a job in London. {{TheBusCameBack}}, though, as Glossman managed to turn up at the state Department of Transportation and finally as part of a crew with the [[FunWithAcronyms Environmental Detection Agency]], before leaving for good when his character was arrested at the end of the Blackgaard/Darkness Before Dawn saga. He was last heard from in a cameo role in "A Capsule Comes to Town", sneering at Odyssey's small town values.

** AREM, [[spoiler:as well as his alter ego Robert Mitchell]]:
*** At first, the AREM persona's breaking and entering into computer systems is portrayed as morally dubious at best and malevolent at worst, and the Campbell College investigators finding him piggybacking off of a modem in Whit's office appears to be an attempt by AREM to frame Whit for AREM's computer hacking. [[spoiler:It turns out that Mitch, acting as the AREM persona, used those morally shady means to expose the corruption at Novacom from the inside, and he was trying to draw attention to the modem planted by Novacom at Whit's End so that it could be quickly disposed of.]]
*** Mitch comes under suspicion in "Grand Opening" and "Secrets" when he's revealed to have purchased a large number of the same types of security cameras Whit found hidden around his shop in Connellsville, and when Connie finds a photo in Mitch's briefcase of the woman who planted the suspicious modem in Whit's office. [[spoiler:Mitch's innocuous explanation for the cameras—that they're being used as part of a Novacom show about secret agents—is never confirmed as true or false, and he has the picture because the woman, Monica Stone, is working for Andromeda and Mitch wants to find her and bring her, and the rest of Andromeda, to justice.]]
