* JerkAss: The nerdy-looking, [[ObviouslyEvil George H.W. Bush-loving,]] "bip-bip-bip"-ing dispatcher Normal at Jam Pony. He hates the messengers in his employ (with the notable exception of Alec), they hate him, it's a puzzle how he even got in this business. He gets better eventually.

** Lydecker. Despite being a [[RecoveredAddict recovering]] [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]], he gleefully attends an [[TropaholicsAnonymous AA meeting]] and [[KickTheDog proceeds to berate every single person there as being weak]].
* LightningBruiser: X-5 series soldiers are incredibly quick, making them fearsome opponents in hand-to-hand combat. This neatly justifies why Max DoesntLikeGuns also; She's so damn fast, she doesn't really need them. [[spoiler: Though, as the season 1 finale shows, they are ''not'' MadeOfIron, as Max goes down to a single gunshot by her own clone.]]

* ScannableMan: All the transgenics except Joshua, who was first.first, have a barcode at the base of their necks. It's more than just a simple tattoo, as Max explains that she had hers removed at a tattoo removal clinic, only for it to reappear due to it actually being coded into her DNA.

Added DiffLines:

* FlawedPrototype: The process of genetic enhancement is not without its faults. Many of the "'Nomalies", X-series subjects who have mutated, are shown to be practically feral. This was especially a problem with the [=X-2s=], who were pretty much a complete disaster. Even [=X-5s=] like Max routinely suffer from seizures, requiring her to take Tryptophan supplements to suppress them. This wasn't brought up in the second season, so it's possible that this issue might have been fixed in the later iterations of X-series soldiers.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, the second half of the season 1 finale. After a "happy ending" it suddenly changes to "remember when she fell down and got up again when being chased? Well, she didn't really get up, everything since then was a dream and now she's been captured by the bad guys". This was the last minute or so of the episode, probably done because the producers didn't know whether or not the show would be renewed for another year until after filming had finished.

* ShoutOut: When Original Cindy is moving in with Max, one of her belongings is a [[XenaWarriorPrincess XENA LIVES!]] poster. This is either because Xena was being cancelled that year or that a show that possibly aired before Cindy was BORN [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything was still popular decades later]]. Now, what are the odds of-- [[Franchise/StarTrek oh, wait...]]

** "Pollo Loco" writer Doris Egan relates on her livejournal that one of the producers objected to casting JensenAckles as an X5 because he wasn't very muscular. Egan pointed out that they were following this trope for X5s, and the producer obliviously advocated a DoubleStandard.

** Also, the resistance group [=S1W=] (Security of the First World) is a direct reference to the rap group PublicEnemy (Which should come as no surprise since Chuck D was one of the writers of the theme song.

The series got moved to [[FridayNightDeathSlot Friday nights]] in it's second season and dropped after in favor of ''{{Series/Firefly}}'', causing some fan wars on the internet. The fact that ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' was also dropped/mishandled by Fox is a lesson in ExecutiveMeddling. What's more, the ''Dark Angel'' cast and crew were told by Fox that they had been picked up for a third season only two days before it was officially announced that they were cancelled instead.
