** This is also expanded through old friendships and FBI roles being expanded upon. For example, Drs. Katz, Price, and Zeller are called on at different points in the books, but this was changed to them being direct FBI forensicists who all work as the head trio.

** Bedelia deals a couple of these to Will in the second half of Season 3: she asks whether he's really there just for the case or because he simply misses Hannibal that much, and after confirming to Will that [[spoiler:Hannibal is in love with him]], she asks Will if he is, too.

** Hannibal isn't above playing dirty in his occasional scuffle, what with the risk he's at if he's caught. In "Fromage", he even snaps Tobias' elbow in a ladder before budgeoning him with a statue, and in "Takiawase" he [[spoiler:flips off the lights so he can throttle Beverly.]]

** The episode "Entrée" has a few notible examples, as it transfers some events, descriptions and dialogue from ''Literature/RedDragon'' and ''Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'', such as Chilton's description of Hannibal, Clarice Starling's characterisation, and the circumstances of how Hannibal was discovered to be the Chesapeake Ripper.

* TheCrocIsTicking: Awful scratching, irregular drumming, and an awful buzzing noise -- along with the drone of an aboriginal instrument called a bullroarer -- always foretell the appearance of the feathered stag in Will's hallucinations, which alludes to the fact that a sinister evil is stalking Will. In Season 2, this carries over to the wendigo.

** Matthew Brown's a serial killer who occasionally slurs his speech with an obsession with an (alleged) serial killer already incarcerated and goes to kill someone under his direction. In other words, he seems to have been inspired by Francis Dolarhyde. ***He is also an orderly at Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane like Barney Matthews, whose name sounds similar.

** Also used more frequently as of Season 2. The premier often uses a NoticeThis shot to draw attention, and this overlaps with dead bodies and even of Hannibal's cheek when he's being swabbed for DNA.

* HeroicDog: Winston follows Will and tries to nudge him awake when he starts sleep walking. The second time, the dogs' barking woke him before he sleepwalked himself off his own roof. In a later episode, the dogs' worried grizzling wakes Will up and alerts him to the fact that Georgia Madchen is under his bed.

* InLoveWithTheMark: What prevents Will from wanting Hannibal dead or captured at the end of Season 2, and Hannibal from killing Will after his betrayal in the same episode. Although at the time of the events the romance was still purely subtextual, by the time [[spoiler:it's become textual at the end of Season 3 it's been made abundantly clear]] that this was the reason.

** This is becomes inverted in Season 2, which is arguably even darker than Season 1 but [[CrowningMomentOfFunny considerably funnier than the first.]] [[spoiler:It is worth noting, however, that as the season goes on the two comic relief characters (relatively speaking) suffer greatly from Hannibal's proximity, Chilton is shot through the face, and bringer of BlackComedy Mason Verger is [[LaserGuidedKarma quite deservingly]] mutilated by Hannibal.]]

* XanatosSpeedChess: Season 2 begins to become one between Hannibal and Will. Hannibal seems to be attempting to strike a balance between continuing to manipulate Will, without [[spoiler: pushing his insanity or manipulating the evidence to the point where he'll be found viable for the death penalty]], while Will intentionally plays everyone's perceptions of his psychosis to manipulate them [[spoiler: from behind bars]] in order to [[spoiler: set Hannibal up for his inevitable fall]].

Unfortunately, as of June 2015 (and only a few episodes into Season 3), Hannibal was announced as [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/06/22/hannibal-cancelled-by-nbc cancelled]] [[https://tvline.com/2015/06/22/hannibal-cancelled-nbc-season-4 by NBC]] due to unsatisfactory ratings, adding it to the pile of Fuller shows cancelled just a few seasons in. Despite no word on whether or not it would be picked up for a fourth season elsewhere, comments by Fuller and Martha de Laurentiis seem optimistic, especially so due to the ongoing outcry from the fandom.

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Bella Crawford's real name is actually Phyllis -- but, as she says, Jack only calls her that when they're arguing. He gave her the nickname when they met in Italy; appropriate, as it's Italian for "beautiful woman".
