* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: So after three seasons of being a murderer, a drug dealer, an extortionist, and a bank robber, what does Boyd Crowder get? Nothing. And after being his accomplice not to mention beating up a prostitute in a prostitution ring she now runs, what does Ava get? Nothing. [[SarcasmMode Justice is served.]]]]
** Not so in season 4.

Season 5 has a BigBadEnsemble, with Daryl Crowe Jr. emerging as the FinalBoss near the end.

* LiteralDisarming: A running Chekhov's Gun is that villain Robert Quarles has a secret gun rail hidden in the sleeve of his jacket. Any time he extends his arm, his opponent is in danger of being shot and killed. In the season finale, Quarles extends his arm to shoot the protagonist, Raylan Givens, only to have his arm cleaved off at the shoulder by Limehouse, the butcher Quarles had threatened earlier in the scene.

* LawyerFriendlyCameo: Carla Gugino appeared in season 3 as a character who is clearly supposed to be Karen Sisco, the ElmoreLeonard character she played in a short-lived TV series -- but due to licensing issues, the name is never mentioned (she's referred to as "Assistant Deputy Goodall," which is a married name).

* EndOfAnAge: The end of the "glory days" of crime, old family dynasties, and the prosperous coal mining industry in Harlan County is an important theme throughout the show's run. [[spoiler:By the end of the series, the Crowders, the Bennetts, and the Givens are all either dead, imprisoned, or have left Harlan county forever. Poor Dewey Crowe invokes this trope before Boyd executes him; his last thoughts were of the better days of Harlan county.]]

* StupidCrooks: One of the show's biggest draws is watching a hyper-competent cop dealing with amateur, dumbass criminals that sometimes reach ''{{Fargo}}''-levels of stupidity. It contrasts greatly with people that completely avert this trope -- Limehouse, the Crowders, the Bennetts or the Dixie Mafia.

To "reward" Raylan for stopping the arms dealer, the Marshal is reassigned to Lexington, Kentucky. Now back in his native Harlan County, the place where he grew up, Raylan must deal with his duties as Marshal (protecting witnesses, tracking fugitives, and arresting bad guys) while dealing with his ex-wife, his estranged criminal of a father, and the dysfunctional and criminal Crowder family, including former coal mining buddy [[EnsembleDarkhorse Boyd Crowder]] (played by ''Series/TheShield'' star Creator/WaltonGoggins), and Boyd's sister-in-law turned girlfriend Ava. That's without mentioning the murderous Bennett clan (headed by the charming but evil Mags Bennett), the alligator-poaching, sugar-smuggling Crowes, and the various agents of the Dixie Mafia and the Detroit Mob.

** This is played straight at the end of "Bloody Harlan" only to be then subverted in the following episode. After being shot, Raylan should be on his way to a hospital rather than walking and talking to people. However, three weeks later he is shown to be still in a lot of pain from the wound, restricted to desk duty and [[spoiler: unable to perform his usual QuickDraw and ImprobableAimingSkills feats.]]

* OutsideContextProblem: Quarles initially appears as this with his big plans and the ability to turn people like [[spoiler: Wynn Duffy and Devil]] to be his accomplices. However, both Raylan and Boyd quickly figure out what type of villian he is and invert the trope on him revealing him to be too WrongGenreSavvy to understand how they are beating him.

* ArmorPiercingResponse: Winona delivers one to Raylan at the end of the series' first episode, after Raylan tells her that he's never thought of himself as an angry man.
--->'''Winona''': You do a good job of hiding it, and suppose most folks don't see it, but honestly, you're the angriest man I've ever known.
