** Donald Wren in "The Mephisto Ring." While becoming a GamblingAddict and the way he maniacally revels in the deaths of his victims is hardly sympathetic, as his own mother says, everyone he killed was an AssholeVictim LoanShark--including the head of the gambling ring, which was also a case of {{Revenge}} for having supposedly killed his father. (After the horrific {{Fingore}} scene and subsequent NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, the asshole absolutely deserved what he got.) Donalds also makes it clear he wants money not just for itself or the thrill of gambling but to have a better life and [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas to give his mother everything she wanted]]. In the end though, while his death is sad, the real SympatheticMurderer is [[spoiler:his mother, who is forced to shoot him to stop/save him, [[HistoryRepeats just as she had his father]].]]

* UltimateEvil: Lucifer, the BiggerBad of the whole series and the one responsible for the whole plot is never shown on camera. The only one who briefly catches a glimpse of him is Micki, who describes his eyes as being empty. Jack goes on to say "Maybe that's all evil is. An absence of good."

* ChekhovsHobby / SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat: Ryan's ability to sculpt, so crucial to the [[GuileHero clever trick]] he and Jack uses to get a Satanist to [[spoiler:bring Micki BackFromTheDead]], straddles the line between these tropes. The ability is shown earlier in the episode, and it was also hinted that he had some skill with art in the comic book episode (although there it was drawing, which is not quite the same skill set), but it still seems to come out of nowhere just when it becomes absolutely critical for him to know it.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: When actor John D. [=LeMay=] left the show at the beginning of the third season, his character Ryan was written out of the series [[spoiler: by being transformed back into a little boy via a HeroicSacrifice at the end of "The Prophecies" 2-part episode]] and replaced by Steve Monarque as Johnny Ventura (who had appeared as a SixthRanger in previous episodes).

** Near the end of the episode "Shadow Boxer", the villain breaks into Curious Goods and takes Micki hostage, threatening to hurt her if Ryan and Jack don't give back the cursed boxing gloves. Ryan gets the gloves from the Vault and instead of giving it to the villain, he decides to use them in order to help save Micki. Of course, Ryan must've forgotten earlier on that in order to make the gloves work, he needs to use a random opponent as a punching bag so that his shadow can simultaneously attack its targeted victim and since Jack was near him during the time of the incident, it's quite safe to say that Jack got the short end of the stick and that he wasn't too pleased by Ryan's actions.

* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: On a few occasions, the trio doesn't get back the artifact they're seeking. Sometimes the villain manages to escape with it ([=DeJager=] and the Shard of Medusa in "A Friend to the End"); sometimes it is lost and they have a chance to get it when it turns up again in a later episode (the Coin of Ziocles, the compact--which [[TheEndOrIsIt is actually shown being found in the bushes by someone]] as TheStinger of the episode); once they were actually fooled by a switch with a duplicate ("The Quilt of Hathor"); and once they promised to leave an artifact in a safe place where it could do no harm, only for it to be seen in the vault in a later episode ("The Shaman's Apprentice").

* TomatoInTheMirror: Villainous version--the villain of "Pirate's Promise" is [[SinsOfTheFather killing all the descendants of the pirate's original mutinous crew]] so as to obtain his treasure, and [[GottaCatchEmAll he believes he has found]] [[LastOfHisKind the final one]]...but the ghost informs him ThereIsAnother--himself, something he was not aware of due to being adopted. Cue KarmicDeath. Additionally, the villain's adoption also makes him unaware that he and his last victim [[LongLostRelative were brothers]].
