* AffectionateParody: In one episode, to DarkerAndEdgier [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 reimaginings]] of [[Franchise/StarTrek classic sci-fi shows]]. Hodges' dream sequences during the episode (where he sees himself as TheCaptain of the ''StarTrek The Original Series'' {{Expy}}) are pretty much a love letter to ''Trek'' (taking details mostly from the episode "''The Gamesters Of Triskelion''"-and getting away with all of the borrowing mostly because ''Trek'' and ''CSI'' are both Paramount franchises).

* AmusementParkOfDoom: When Catherine is assigned to investigate the death of a six-year old girl during a tunnel ride at a carnival in the Season One episode, ''Justice is Served'', the death of the girl is built up to be because of this trope. The manager is a registered sex offender who is now running place designed especially for small children, and happened to be seen near the ride during the time of the murder (which happened to be the only ride in the carnival that went into the dark). After finding a hammer in said ride, deduces that Pickenns either abducted Sandy from the ride and killed her with the hammer because there was no way for him to escape unnoticed with her, or that Sandy was killed by Pickett's non-code conforming ride and tried to repair it to cover the evidence. [[spoiler: It turns out that the real murderer was the girls ''own mother'', as parenthood was getting in the way of her relationship with her boyfriend, and intentionally killed her at a carnival because a number of them fit this trope to a perfect T and knew that the authorities would immediately suspect the carnival staff or the shoddy ride itself.]]

* UnwantedRescue: The A-plot in the episode "Unleashed" turns out to be this. [[spoiler: The victim was living as a "human pet" in the mansion of a rich dentist, along with several other women (the arrangement was entirely consensual and the women could have left at any time). Unfortunately, her former assistant (the victim used to work at a shelter for abused women) assumed the victim had been brainwashed and wanted to "free" her, which led to the victim's death.]]

** Part two of Sara Sidle's [[TraumaCongaLine Tension Conga Line]] at the hands of the miniature killer in ''"Living Doll"''/''"Dead Doll"'' Left abandoned in the desert, with her arm pinned under an overturned car, she's first threatened by a Coyote which takes a keen interest in her exposed arm, before being chased away by an impending storm - which results in a flash flood, causing this. Only for Sara to escape the car (thanks to the flood shifting the vehicle's weight and freeing her arm), resulting in her being lost in the desert, and almost dying from heatstroke/dehydration. All the while, the CSIs and police are desperately trying to find her.

* RabidCop: Example of InUniverse {{Flanderization}} on the episode ''"Lab Rats"'': the titular [[RPGEpisode experimental tabletop game]] has Brass as a character, and Game!Brass has an affinity for [[DissonantSerenity nonchalantly]] applying violence during interrogation and to anybody who resists arrest (shooting Hodges and then making a GunPose).

** Subverted in "The Unusual Suspect" where the crime itself wasn't perfect - but the accused's genius 12 year old sister exploited reasonable doubt and double jeopardy protections to effectively get her brother to be found not guilty, despite the fact that he actually committed the crime. Effectively and literally allowing her brother to get away with murder, by not only confessing to the crime herself on the stand, not only having the means and the motive, but also producing enough evidence that she ''could've'' murdered the victim herself.

* LethalKlutz: One episode features a guy like this. He accidentally kills his wife and somehow decides that the best thing to do was bury her in fresh cement at a construction site... where he gets stuck. It gets worse when they delve into his backstory. Some characters find his antics funny but Grissom is just disturbed.

* ArtisticLicense: While hiding a pistol inside a computer case could cause issues with cooling - either due to interfering with airflow, or the fans themselves, it would not prevent a computer from turning on, or even booting up.
