** The guy who sells out the rebels in "No Quarter". He ''really'' [[GenreBlindness should have seen it coming]].
** The guy who gives up Miles and Nora's ultimate destination in "Ghosts" gets the same treatment. The Monroe Militia for all of its other deficiencies seems to be DangerouslyGenreSavvy when it comes to dealing with defectors and informants.

Added DiffLines:

** Mustard gas is far closer to brown than yellow. As it was the Germans that originally invented the gas, the confusion probably comes from the fact that European mustard tends to be of a completely different colour to American mustard.

* BigDamnHeroes: Miles and Rachel's appearance in Annapolis - ''with a laser-guided missile launcher'' - in "The Stand." One almost expects Rachel to invoke this trope, and Miles to declare, "[[Series/{{Firefly}} Ain't we just!]]"

** Most civilians carry low-tech weapons like swords and crossbows even though cartridge firearms were invented before electricity was harnessed. This is explained as guns being illegal for civilians to own. However, that doesn't explain why militia members, who are allowed to have guns, only use muskets. Could be explained by most of the modern ammunition being used up during the intervening 15 years. Musketballs are probably easier to manufacture with primitive technology. This theory is verified by Episode 3, with Jeremy mentioning that pre-blackout ammunition was a rare commodity and that copper jackets and smokeless powder were beyond at least the Monroe Republic's manufacturing capabilities.

** Season 2 seemingly abandons this trope: ''everybody'' (and their mother) has an M-4 Carbine, a Beretta, and possibly a grenade launcher; and they use ammo like they can pick up another 1000 rounds at the corner store any time they want, with no mention of where it's all coming from. Possibly justified in that the main characters haven't returned to the Monroe Republic (which both banned modern weapons for civilians and was having trouble manufacturing new ammunition) and the other republics [[spoiler: along with the Patriots and now Mexico]] may have been more successful in rebuilding their industrial complexes.

** On showing up at Guantanamo Bay, [[spoiler:President Jackson Davis... now that's not at all a direct reference to Confederate President Jefferson Davis... anyway, Davis says the blackout was caused by "parasites" and "perverts", {{Shout Out}}s to right-wing religion and UsefulNotes/AynRand, respectively.]]
