** Juliette. [spoiler: Though she loses her normal status once she turns into a Hexenbiest]
** Wu. He put plenty of bullets into Wesen long before he hopped on board. [spoiler: He also (permanently?) loses his normal status after being scratched by a Lycanthrope]
** Meisner. He never woged and isn't a Grimm either, but kicks total ass against the royals and protects Adalind and her baby like a boss. [spoiler: He even is left as the sole survivor of the Portland HW cell and then singlehandedly wipes out the entire Black Claw squad sent to wipe them out, and is confirmed non-Wesen and non-Grimm by Renard before Bonaparte kills him]

* ArtifactOfDoom: The stick that was in the chest the keys unlocked. The first clue was the cloth it was wrapped in having several words that mean dangerous or the like written on it. Nick feels compelled to have it on his person at all times. He is able to resist it, for now. It knocked a dozen cops out when they tried to take it from him. It also made Eve scratch markings into a wall and prevent her from leaving until it was done.

** This is spoofed in one episode. While looking for a dangerous Wesen Nick and Hank keep running into a man in a wheelchair who never says anything but seems to to be present for all the strange events. Naturally, the culprit ends up being someone nobody suspected. The episode ends with the reveal that the mysterious man was also a Wesen: a fish-like Wesen with red scales.

** The keys with the map that the Royals are looking for are promptly forgotten in later seasons, [[spoiler:until halfway through season 5, when Nick unexpectedly comes into possession of 3 additional keys. Together with the 2 they already had (which have been hidden in the spice shop since the trailer burned) they have enough of the map to go looking for the treasure. When the treasure is finally recovered in "Into the Schwarzwald", it's revealed to be a ordinary-looking stick with the ability to heal. As it turns out, only 5 of the keys were required (Nick unsealed the box with his blood), so it's possible that the location of the last two keys will never be revealed.]]

** Adalind goes back for seconds when she poses as [[spoiler: Juliette]] to sleep with [[spoiler: Nick]] in the season 3 finale. While the reactions would probably be more extreme if the genders were reversed, everyone seems to agree that what Adalind did was unforgivably wrong (though moreso because of [[BroughtDownToNormal what it does to the male victim]]), but both [[spoiler: Nick and Juliette]] are disturbed by it. It does have him apologize to his girlfriend, but this is TruthInTelevision behaviour for rape victims of both genders.

** An episode in season two gives a little more context: what we would consider 'modern' Grimm stories and social structure started before the Fourth Crusade (12021204) and the Sack of Constantinople of 1204 plays an important part in the show's mythology. Long enough in the past to be fairly mysterious but not so long ago as to prevent much older things from existing and having been established elsewhere.

** Played with at the start of season 2. For Juliette to wake from her coma, she needs a kiss from someone pure of heart... and her long-time boyfriend is one of the nicest, most genuinely decent guys you will ever meet, constantly visiting her in the hospital. It ends up being Renard, a virtual stranger to her--but also a prince, apparently another requirement--who takes a potion to make him pure enough of heart to deliver the kiss himself. This has major implications later in the season, as breaking Adalind's curse causes both Renard and Juliette to become obsessed with each other.
