* MechaMooks: Thanks in great part to Hawk's flying skills, Airwolf destroys hordes of enemy helicopters in many episodes, frequently with individual components that are superior to Airwolf's. However, as the bumper sticker that clearly belongs on Airwolf's fuselage reads: "Outnumbered? Yes. Outgunned? Maybe. Outclassed? ''Never.''"

* {{Hypocrite}}: Unfortunately, yes, on one occasion. In the episode "Santini's Millions," Dom ends up on the board of directors of a major corporation (it makes sense in context) and ends up derailing his first board meeting when he realizes the company is charging the U.S. Air Force $16,000 a piece for aircraft sensors that he himself recently bought for Santini Air for $160, and he yells at them for ripping off the American taxpayers. Three episodes later, in "Severance Pay" Dom reveals that he's charging the Firm $4,000 for repairs to Airwolf despite having fixed it himself with parts from a coffee percolator. Sure, the amount is far less, but Dom is still doing the same thing he previously complained about other people doing.

(The Firm ''does'' receive government funding, also, so this is also ripping off the taxpayers.) Sure, the amount is far less, but Dom is still doing the same thing he previously complained about other people doing.

* CompanionCube: Dom Santini treats the titular helicopter this way, referring to it as "Lady" and actually having conversations with it from time to time. Although Airwolf ''does'' have a rudimentary A.I. it is not (as far as we know) actually intelligent.

* TheAce: At first, it's claimed that Stringfellow is among the handful of people in the world, if not the only one, who can successfully fly Airwolf into combat, due to the fact The Lady is such an experimentally high-performance aircraft, capable of going into rotor-free "Turbo mode". After joining the cast, flying prodigy Caitlin acquires the necessary skill-set through observing him. Dom flies Airwolf as well, even going into turbo mode on a few occasions in the second and third seasons, but he never engages in combat while doing this. * AcePilot: Stringfellow and almost certainly Dominic.

* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: "Saint John" is pronounced "Sinjin" by all characters (and the opening narrator from season 1) within all 4 seasons, but is always spelled out as "Saint John" in all the documents, and even in the English subtitles. That's because it's the actual pronunciation.

* NoKillLikeOverkill: Hawke's usual operating procedure. He does try to avoid bloodshed when he can, and he gives enemies the chance to surrender whenever possible, but when he shoots he doesn't just shoot to kill, he makes sure ''no one'' is walking away.

* TheresNoKillLikeOverkill: When Stringfellow corners Moffett, he unloads Airwolf's entire weapons payload into his Jeep, with Dom only able to close his eyes in the back seat as String continues to fire everything with BerserkerTears until he's squeezing the trigger repeatedly on an empty barrel.
