* ShoutOut: Geraint Wyn Davies guest starred in 'Turnabout' in season 2, during the time he was starring in ''ForeverKnight''. His character on Highlander had a girlfriend named Jeanette, just like his character on the other series, though hers was spelled 'Janette'.

* {{Squick}}: At one point, to escape the titular characters of "Mountain Men" who have him at gunpoint, Duncan decides to leap off of a high cliff. The men assume that he's dead until a conversation their leader has with Tessa asserts otherwise. We then see Duncan recovering at the bottom of the ravine, with his bones gradually (and audibly) snapping back into place as his HealingFactor kicks in.

** Kiem Sun in "The Road Not Taken" ends up losing out on the potion he's worked so hard to perfect when Duncan dumps it, but he's still allowed to go free and continue his work elsewhere (at least until he and Duncan run into each other again, in which case Duncan notes that their next confrontation will end with Kiem Sun's death).

* TrueCompanions: Duncan, Tessa, and Richie serve as these in the early episodes, with the former pair practically adopting Richie as their own. As the series goes on, Joe, Methos, and Amanda join and show themselves as being incredibly devoted to Duncan.

* BullyingADragon / MuggingTheMonster: A 1795 flashback features rookie immortal Jean-Phillipe de Lefaye III, barely 25-years-old, finishing basic training under Duncan and already certain that he can take any opponent. He has a chance meeting with another immortal and immediately challenges him to a duel. He mocks the apparent reluctance of his opponent to fight, his piety, how the man abstains from drinking and wenching. On the first day the other immortal, Damon Case, refuses the challenge. It is implied that he is returning from a battle to the death but Jean-Phillipe does not catch on. On the second day he challenges the man again and is eager for an easy victory. Case accepts the challenge and kills him with minimal effort. It is soon revealed that Case was a c. 700-year-old veteran of the [[TheCrusades The First Crusade]] and had a WarriorMonk mentality. All this time the rookie was taunting a much more experienced and deadlier opponent.

* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Elizabeth Gracen (Amanda) and Peter Wingfield (Methos) get this in Season 6, in large part due to Adrian Paul not being able to film every episode and in order to fill the void left by Richie's death (Duncan and Joe were otherwise the only main characters left by that point).

* IAmNotLeftHanded: In "The Road Not Taken", a former mentor of Duncan's attacks him while noting that he shouldn't have revealed all of his moves in a previous fight. Duncan replies by executing this trope.

Fitz also returns, taking the role of the guardian angel who shows Duncan why he's made things better for everyone.

* DressingAsTheEnemy: Happens in the series finale, when Duncan convinces Methos to take the outfit of an unconscious underling so that they can fool O'Rourke. Methos almost lampshades it with the line "You know, this 'Bad guy just my size' routine never works, [=MacLeod=]. " Less than a minute later, he proves it DOES work, by donning an Irish accent along with the bad guy's coat and shooting the other henchmen.
