*** These same episodes also feature a really dodgy, prototype remix of Miami Vice Theme in their opening credits, which is missing the main guitar line and just sounds like a lot of aimless drumming.

* LaterInstallmentWeirdness: The final seasons also included an escalation in odd episodes, such as one of the characters [[AlienAbduction being abducted by aliens]] (the leader of which was [[WhatTheHellCastingAgency played by]] JamesBrown), a group of drug dealers doing a ScoobyDooHoax regarding ghosts to try to keep people away from their operation (and the ghost being probably RealAfterAll), Sonny going through EasyAmnesia (and temporarily becoming a bad guy) in one episode, a couple of "comedy" episodes where the Vice detectives had to deal with borderline-murderous [[GambitPileup Gambit Pileups]] regarding the purchase of unusual items (a prize bull's semen in one, the HumanPopsicle remains of a famous singer in another) from the same ButtMonkey ConMan snitch...

* TheEighties: One of ''the'' TropeCodifiers. The show defined many tropes - music, fashion, attitudes - that people link to that decade.

* BrokenPedestal:
** The repeated moments when one of the heroes finds out an [[BeleagueredChildhoodFriend old friend]], love interest, or a colleague they used to trust has gone bad.
** In the acclaimed episode "Out Where The Buses Don't Run," the detectives are approached by a former colleague, Hank Weldon, who says he is on the tracks of a drug lord who disappeared five years ago. Weldon seems mentally unstable and fixated on said drug lord. At the end, it turns out that Weldon has [[spoiler: murdered the drug lord and kept his body hidden for five years]].

* GenreShift: Not only are the last two seasons' episodes known for becoming gradually more ridiculous and unbelievable than the first three, one episode is actually more or less ''ScienceFiction''.



* SoundtrackDissonance: While the show's soundtrack and MusicVideoFever style are among its main draws, the series is rife with out-of-place examples that can actually be pretty jarring: such as cheery pop music playing as the theme to a violent murder, or an angsty ballad playing during a mellow driving scene.
