* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Justified because Airwolf ''is'' the prototype, and Dr. Moffet destroyed the facility where it was designed and manufactured in the pilot episode.

** In a rather notable subversion in that same episode, especially considering the period in which the episode the written, the spy's family aren't thrilled to getting on Airwolf to begin a new life in the land of hotdogs and apple pie. They are all proud Russians and they don't take the news that the man they thought was a friend and family member is an American spy well, with both his daughter and his brother-in-law outright considering him a traitor. Yet they are portrayed mostly sympathetically.
* DisneyDeath: String is the master of this. Often when it appears he can't outrun a missile, he'll dodge behind a sand dune or blow it up at the last minute, appearing to have been taken out with it. Airwolf then proceeds to fly over a sand dune or around a hill, in front of the badguy, [[OffscreenTeleportation Jason Voorhees-style]]. In one episode he does this with a B-52 bombing run ''simulating a nuclear attack''.

* AWolfInSheepsClothing: Invoked if not actually used. The design concept was a [[JustPlaneWrong supersonic attack helicopter]] whose weapons were hidden in pods so it could pass as a fancy executive transport. The flight suits' shoulder patches even featured a Wolf In Sheep's Clothing design.

Added DiffLines:

* InSpaceEveryoneCanSeeYourFace: Airwolf doesn't go into space, but the crew's helmets have dark visors that can be sealed in case of pressure loss, but are normally open to allow the actor's eyes to be seen, though the helmets ''do'' cover the actors' lower faces like a conventional aircraft flight helmet.

* TooDumbToLive: The Sheriff in "Sweet Britches" stands out. The DirtyCop in that episode is overflown by an armed helicopter that blows out his windows, destroys two trucks and threatens to continue unless he releases his hostage. Mind you, he was facing life in prison or death row, but he would've at least had a chance to get away. While his cohorts at least had the sense to run out the back, he just keeps shooting and tries to kill his escaped hostage.
