* ScarpiaUltimatum: Levelled against Barnabas by (who else) Angelique. She actually uses this twice: Once she conditions for being his wife if she saves his sister (whose pains Angelique caused for exactly this purpose), and once they are married, she threatens Josette's life to keep Barnabas acting as a "faithful husband." When he tries to remove Josette from danger, the threat is simply expanded to his family.

** In one of the better-done dramatic moments of the series, when the witch Angelique is face-to-face with the newly risen vampire Barnabas, alone and cornered by the monster she has created, simultaneously grief-stricken, terrified, and even remoreseful, as Barnabas realizes the true horror of his new status, we see a stage hand realize that he is in the camera view-zone...

* TheShowMustGoOn: Examples are too numerous to list. Barnabas' heart-wrenching dramatic pauses were reportedly just Jonathan Frid forgetting his lines.

* OutsideContextVillain: Barnabas. Before he shows up, the only other paranormal thing in town is Josette, whom every other character believes is a figment of David's imagination. Throughout all the investigation of the mysterious puncture wounds that show up on the necks of Loomis, Maggie, and assorted cattle, no one so much as utters the word vampire, even in jest, as though they don't know what one is.

The show was also notable for having storylines taking place in different time periods and parallel worlds, allowing the same actors to play [[IdenticalGrandson identical relatives]] or [[HeyItsThatGuy lookalikes]].
