* EmbarrassingRingtone: Moriarty's "Staying Alive" ringtone qualifies. It's hard to be menacing with Music/TheBeeGees providing a bouncy little riff.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Moriarty gets two. His first appearance has him [[spoiler: masquerade as "Jim from IT", the [[TransparentCloset obviously gay]] boyfriend of Molly which retrospectively shows how capable he is at being HiddenInPlainSight]], while his second appearance has him introduce himself while holding John hostage with a suicide-vest, being alternatively affable and menacing, in addition to establishing him as a complete sociopath and Sherlock's EvilCounterpart.

In "The Reichenbach Fall", Moriarty adopts the same expression when [[spoiler:he decides to spite Sherlock, by turning his gun on himself.]]
