* FakeInTheHole - Avon throws a stone into a nest of Federation troops, shouting "Grenade!" The troops reflexively dive for cover, and when they realize it was fake and look up, the heroes have them at gunpoint. Avon: "It must have been a dud. Sorry about that."
* FakeMemories: Blake and some children both get ones of him molesting them in the pilot so he can be wrongly sent to a penal colony.

* FreudianTrio: The "Power Trio". Blake, Avon and Jenna, the three strongest personalities aboard Liberator and her first crew. Exemplified by this quote:
--->'''Blake''': No, not until free men can think and speak! Not until power is back with the honest man.\\
'''Avon''': Have you ever ''met'' an honest man?\\
'''Jenna''' ''(glancing at Blake)'': No, but I'd like to.

** Id: Blake -- idealistic, charismatic, and the leading figure of the Rebellion
** Superego: Avon -- holds self-preservation as the only real value (and wealth the best tool to achieve it)
** Ego: Jenna -- quite possibly as ruthless as Avon, respects Blake for his ideals but won't follow him off the metaphorical cliff

* VillainBall: At the end of "Rumours of Death", Servalan has Avon dead to rights, but she tells him to signal for a teleport before she kills him, so she can send his crew a corpse. Naturally she's distracted at the critical moment and Avon survives.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Those metal gun-holsters in season 4 look very fancy, but more than once the characters have trouble putting their guns away.

* AsteroidThicket:
** Season one had two "meteor storms", with lots of rocks hitting the ship as if it were a heavy hailstorm or an avalanche.
** Also a ''Planet Thicket'': many exterior shots of the Liberator flying through space (e.g. in the opening titles) feature lots of big spheres in view at the same time.

* {{Zeerust}}: The notion that in the future a human could defeat "the best [[{{TableTopGame/Chess}} chess]] computer available", let alone six times in a row, has now become ludicrous. The last year ''any'' human was able to beat the best chess-playing computer in the world was 2005. In [=S02E03=] "Weapon" Carnell might have saved himself the small fortune he spent. Or maybe he is into antiques? The thing he uses looks exactly like the 1977 [[http://tluif.home.xs4all.nl/chescom/EngCc3.html Chess Chalenger 3]].

* Insult Backfire: "He was calling me a machine. But since he undoubtedly defines himself as a human being, I shall choose to take that as more of a compliment than anything else." You'd have thought Vila would have known better than to try and insult Avon in such a fashion.

* [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Licensed Sexist]] - Avon [[OutOfCharacter turns into one of these in any episode written by Ben Steed]]. The most blatant instance is in the episode "Power," where he actually lectures a female villain on how women are inherently less strong than men, and how they should learn their proper place in society. Fortunately the other writers treated Avon in a much more even-handed way, giving him much respect for his female colleagues and even Servalan to a certain extent.
