* ActionDuo: From the first, there is a lot of tension and distrust between Mal and Simon. Despite the distrust, when Simon is about to let himself be killed for his sister in "Safe" Mal comes in leading the team in a rescue party, demanding they let the two go. When Mal is in danger in "War Stories" Simon's aim is too poor to be of any help but he still manages to survive.

Added DiffLines:

* TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised: Aside from ''Serenity'', ''Darkhorse'' has begun regularly publishing comics that take place after the film. Unlike ''Buffy'', however, these are not in the form of a regular monthly series, but rather sequential six-issue mini-series. Two, ''Leaves On The Wind'' and ''No Power In The Verse'', have been released so far.

* RedHerring: When first introduced to Simon, the "bad guy"-chord comes in as he's hovering menacingly around a large crate wearing scary glasses. He acts suspiciously by asking many questions, leading Mal to suspect that Simon is the mole that is giving the Alliance their location. Book steps in and says that Simon isn't the mole -- giving one the assumption that the mole might be him, until they turn to find the real culprit.

** Mas is good for these, but one of the best actually comes from NonActionGuy Wash:
--->'''Wash:''' (referring to Mal) ''Niska's gonna kill him.''
--->'''Zoe:''' ''He's gonna want to make it last as long as he can. Days if possible.''
--->'''Wash:''' (pushes himself to his feet, a look of grim determination on his face) ''Bastard's not gonna get days.''

''Firefly'''s life story is an interesting one: it went from (canceled) television show, to runaway cult hit DVD series, to comic-book {{sequel}}, to major motion picture, to a [[http://www.amazon.com/Firefly-Flying-Celebration-Whedons-Acclaimed/dp/1848565062/ref=sr_1_1/189-6509445-2330608?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1277635468&sr=8-1 book]] having show-related pics and a few new stories to a [[DevelopmentHell when-it's-ready]] {{MMORPG}}, titled ''[[http://keepflying.com/ Firefly Online]]''. ''Firefly'' is noted for being one of the few ''canceled'' television series to be [[{{Spinoff}} spun off]] into a major motion picture. The {{Universal}} {{film}} was titled ''[[Film/{{Serenity}} Serenity]]'' because {{Creator/Fox}} still owned the rights to the name ''Firefly''. There are also a few [[{{Interquel}} comics]], with plans for more. There's even a TabletopRPG. There are also constant rumors about a second television series (Whedon and many of the principals have constantly said they would be willing to pick up the show, with Fillion going so far as to say he'd be willing to buy the rights from Fox), and the cult status the series has attained after its premature cancellation may have saved [[{{Series/Dollhouse}} a later Whedon work]] [[https://web.archive.org/web/20090815094939/http://scifiwire.com/2009/05/fox-execs-explain-why-the.php from a similar fate]], even if ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'' only lasted until December of 2009.

* BilingualBonus: The Chinese curses, which according to [[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Firefly_%28TV_series%29#Chinese_translations the show's Wikiquotes page]] mean things like "frog-humping son-of-a-bitch" and "holy mother of God and all her wacky nephews." The phrases themselves [[ShownTheirWork are (mostly) accurate Mandarin Chinese]], but the actors' pronunciation was often so poor as to be incomprehensible
** In some cases, the translations were quite literal and grammatically incorrect, which can cause usually tense moments to become quite hilarious.

* ReliableTraitor: In the pilot, Jayne makes it clear to Mal that his loyalty to the crew ends as soon as he gets a better offer. [[spoiler:The better offer comes at the hands of The Alliance in "Ariel," but once Jayne fulfills his end of the bargain, the feds simply arrest him instead of paying him.]]
