* DarkerAndEdgier: Boy is it ever.With the possible exception of DS9's own [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS07E08TheSiegeOfAR558 "The Siege Of AR-558,"]] this might be the darkest the franchise ever got.



* MagnificentBastard: They're working toward the same goal, but Garak is, from the start, playing a much more complex game than Sisko. If you weren't quite convinced before, "In the Pale Moonlight" demonstrates ''exactly why'' Garak was once next-in-line to head the Obsidian Order.

** The point of the whole episode. Sisko does many evil things, and he will do them again, if he had to. The concluding monologue comes very close to HeelRealization.

* PragmaticVillainy: While Odo notes that Quark's chivalrous attempts to defend one of his Dabo girls from Grathon Tolar's drunken assault seems rather "uncharacteristic" of him, it's perfectly reasonable to assume that Quark was merely trying to keep his business running smoothly and therefore took issue with Grathon Tolar's making trouble for one of his employees who was (in Odo's words) "otherwise engaged" (presumably running the Dabo wheel) at the time.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Vreenak offers cold hard facts of the current situation. The Dominion has fully functional shipyards, an ever-increasing Jem'Hadar population, and a commitment to win the war, whereas the Federation is still rebuilding its shipyards, has a manpower shortage, and has even sent out peace feelers.
