* [[spoiler:DownerEnding: The season 2 finale. The team is unable to stop Parrish's photic stimulators from going off, and presumably every non-Alpha in the station is killed, Rosen included. Everyone else is knocked out... except Gary, who is the only person still conscious and has to walk among all the dead/unconscious people.]]

* MamaBear[=/=]PapaWolf: The Alpha baby in "Life After Death" essentially has this as a power. The baby increases the production of vasopressin, the chemical responsible for familial bonds, causing anyone who holds the baby to be driven to protect him. This happens to NonActionGuy Gary, so he doesn't do much direct defending, but the spirit is there.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: It took around three months for Syfy to announce the show would be cancelled, after so much hope was generated for season three. An interesting example because Ryan Cartwright (Gary's actor) initially posted on his Twitter that he will assume Alphas is cancelled after waiting so long to "decide" and this forced Syfy to react and contradict him. Of course in the end, it was still cancelled, serving as a KickTheDog moment for the fans.



* YouLookFamiliar: Brent Spiner has appeared in both ''Alphas'' and ''Warehouse 13'' playing different characters. Notable as this is the first time they've reused an actor in a different role '''since''' the series was established to exist in the same universe as ''Eureka'' and ''Warehouse 13''. [[note]] The latter series reused actors, but this happened long ''before'' the crossover occured.[[/note]]

* RightHandVersusLeftHand: How Nathan Clay justifies Rosen's incarceration and later release; one faction of TheGovernment imprisoned him, butwhen that was proven to be a mistake, that faction diminished in power and another faction is offering him his job back. And if he doesn't take it... well it's back to BedlamHouse for him.

** Hicks has superhuman muscle memory, AKA WireFu in ''all'' its BadAss forms. But as it ''isn't'' tied to that response, stress causes him to become clumsy.

* SuperSupremacist: Red Flag/Stanton Parish, the main antagonist from season 1, believes that war between superhumans and normal humans is inevitable and that the superheroes deserve to win. Its more morally complex than usual, however, as it is finally revealed that he believes there would be NoPlaceForMeThere and his true intent is to convince the leader of the heroes, Dr. Rosen, to take over after he's exterminated the normal humans and rule as a genuinely benevolent leader. Rosen is not impressed.

* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Hicks' EvilCounterpart demonstrates this, since she has the same powers as he does. She deflects all of Hicks' bullets with a couple of combat knives, though they were eventually knocked right out of her hands from the force. Still got her in close enough to disarm Hicks.
