* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When Nikita brazenly crashes a political fund-raising party to confront Percy, the head of Division, she discovers that he has anticipated the possibility and replaced the wait staff with Division operatives with orders to take her dead or alive.
** He also has a large number of "black boxes" all around the world filled with the United States dirty secrets for the past 20 years. Everyone knows he's gone from WellIntentionedExtremist to rogue, they just can't do anything about it since if he dies, the boxes will broadcast their information. He's also GenreSavvy enough to "Never trust [his] right hand man."

** Birkhoff has a verbal one over the phone when Alex accidentally runs into Roan in [=S02E13=], when Alex is in the middle of [[spoiler:trying to get to the bottom of Division to shut down the gas dispersal system that would kill everybody inside]]. Alex, upon seeing him, has one herself. Then Birkhoff gets another one when Alex [[spoiler:tells him that she escaped (calling Roan "the Terminator") but Roan is chasing her]]. Roan just seems to pick these up any time he runs into one of the main characters.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: When a terrorist holds Division up for $5 million dollars for information in the third season, Nikita and Michael figure they can just pay him as they're used to that being chump change for the company. However, Ryan has to break it to them that the reason Division was flush with cash before was all the illegal dealings Percy was running. Now, they're on a government budget which means "we barely have enough to keep the lights on."

* FeministFantasy: The show features two women as the main heroes in season 1 and in seasons 3 and 4 the primary antagonist is a woman. The titular character is considered among the most dangerous characters in the series. When most male division agents run into her it doesn't end well for them.
