* FakeWeakness: Scorpius plays up his heat vulnerability and fear of the acid pit, leaving the heroes under the impression that he's ''dying'' when they leave him behind so they won't finish him off. He then waits for them to leave the room, runs his hand through the acid just because he can, and calmly walks away.



* InvulnerableKnuckles: Averted when Clavor tries to punch Crichton's statue.

* InvulnerableKnuckles: Averted when Clavor tries to punch Crichton's statue. Cargn is amused by the symbolism.

* WeaksauceWeakness: We find out that Scorpius [[spoiler: both craves the heat ''and'' can't tolerate it due to his Scarran and Sebacean heritages, respectively]].

In the final showdown, D'Argo teams up with Scorpius to take down Cargn; however, Scorpius is apparently overwhelmed by the heat, and Cargn is too strong for D'Argo to defeat alone. Instead, Crichton arrives just in time to save the day, shooting the Scarran ambassador a few hundred times with the stun-gun and kicking him into the acid vat. However, when he tries to do the same to Scorpius, he finds that he simply can't bring himself to do so; he can only shove the hybrid against the side of the cat and warn him to leave them alone- or he won't be so lucky the next time. As soon as Crichton's hurried out the room, Scorpius calmly rises without showing any sign of his previous frailty, dips one finger into the acid, and strolls leisurely away.

* [[GirlOfTheWeek Boy Of The Week/ Girl Of The Week]]: Dregon and Jenavian respectively for Aeryn and John. Seems a bit unfair that he gets laid and she gets to drag Dregon back to civilisation on a broken leg.


Added DiffLines:

* ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer: in most space opera shows, Zhaan would win the Secret Test of Character by offering to do a HeroicSacrifice in exchange for Moya's life. In this, however, she proves her worthiness by trying to kill the superbeing who's being an asshole to her.

* BaddieFlattery: Cargn offers his own version of this to both D'Argo and Scorpius, though it's limited by the fact that he goes out of his way to call Scorpius a "biological mistake."


Added DiffLines:

* EvilGloating: Clavor decides to do a bit of this to Crichton's severed head before he shoves it into the acid.
--> I know you can hear me, Crichton, and I know you're scared. Our laws state that a couple must rule together. That's why the crown must soon pass to me, because you can't rule with ''one little head!''


Added DiffLines:

* LiterallyShatteredLives: The statues of previous royal couple have occasionally been shattered in accidents, but as they can be easily put back together, this hasn't been much of a problem. Clavor recalls that his great-grandfather was broken in half when an earthquake collapsed the senate building, but was easily reassembled and survived with only "a severe limp."

* AcidPool
* AndIMustScream: Though the petrified royal couple can lessen their experience of this trope via the psychic headsets, Crichton experiences the full version after being decapitated- to the point that as soon as Jenavian gives him a headset, he screams in delayed panic.



* BullyingADragon: As the situation worsens, Clavor's treatment of Cargn descends to the borderline abusive; his final and most idiotic mistake is to tell Cargn- to his face- that their alliance is officially over. And of course, he pays for it with his life.



* InvulnerableKnuckles: Averted when Clavor tries to punch Crichton's statue.



* TortureAlwaysWorks: Subverted. Cargn's attempt at getting information out of D'Argo only results in useless information.
