* StoryboardingTheApocalypse: Used to chilling effect in Season Two's Finale "End Game" by Operations and Adrian, especially due to the HarsherInHindsight nature this discussion takes following the Invasion of Iraq and the current rise of ISIS. Operations justifies his support of [[spoiler:Saddam Hussein]] by describing the chaos that would follow if the dictator suddenly fell from power. In a unique take on the trope, Adrian provides her own take on the situation, stating that Operations will use [[spoiler:Hussein]] as an attack dog to seize control of the Middle East and won't stop until he has control over half the world's population and resources.

'''''La Femme Nikita''''' ('''''Nikita''''' in Canada) is a Canadian television spy drama based upon the [[Film/{{Nikita}} original French film]] directed by Creator/LucBesson, co-produced by Jay Firestone (Firestone Entertainment) and Creator/WarnerBros, and created for television by Joel Surnow, who later co-created ''Series/TwentyFour'' with Robert Cochran, his fellow ''La Femme Nikita'' executive consultant. This television series debuted in the United States on USANetwork in January 1997 and ran for five seasons, until March 2001. ''La Femme Nikita'' was the highest-rated drama on American basic cable during its first two seasons; also distributed on television in Canada (as ''Nikita'') and, ultimately, internationally, it continues to have a strong cult following, according to the definitive book on the series written by Christopher Heyn in 2006.

* OddlySmallOrganization: Section. Judging by its worldwide reach, and endless intelligence, would probably have hundreds or at least tens of thousands of employees, yet it always seems like a few dozens or so (most of which we already know). As a result, the big boss appears to be micro-managing everything they do. (One might suspect a man in charge of such an organization would have better things to do with his time.) Possibly averted: there was the occasional hint that Section One is just a blacker than usual black ops division of the CIA.
