%%** Tesla at times.
** In "Bank Job", Kate, Will, and Magnus have to pretend to rob a bank in order to keep it quarantined, as a dangerous abnormal is gestating inside one of the bank's customers. Eventually, one of the hostages notices that the team seems more interested in photographing the hostages' eyes than taking any money, and starts questioning everything they're doing.

* {{Badass}}:
** John Druitt more than earns the title while taking on four [[SuperpoweredMooks Cabal operatives]] at once during the second part of the season 2 opener. He holds his own, displaying some impressive work with dual-wielded swords, [[spoiler:but is ultimately unsuccessful in deterring the operatives. He is however the first person to take on these superpowered operatives in close combat and survive. And his own superpower is being artificially nullified during the fight, because the operatives have that same power.]]
** In the "Pavor Nocturnus" BadFuture, Will TookALevelInBadass after the ZombieApocalypse started and is now a scarred, jaded leader of LaResistance. And Druitt went out by [[NukeEm teleporting a tactical nuke]] [[HeroicSacrifice into a zombie overrun area]].
** While all characters have their badass moments, Helen Magnus is the ultimate badass. On several occasions the team has heard about threats to her while she was away, said some variation of "sucks to be them" and continued their business.

Added DiffLines:

* PrematureEmpowerment: UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla became a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] with electrical powers after injecting himself with vampire blood (all true vampires having been killed off long ago). His goal throughout the series is to re-create the vampire race in his own image. His first attempt fails miserably, as the vampires are mindless savages with no free will. He then moves to Mexico and opens a rehab clinic for rich American kids, while covertly performing genetic experiments on them. Each of them is implanted with vampire [=DNA=] that is slowly changing their internal makeup and will not actually activate until decades later. Then one gets into a car accident and dies, triggering a premature transformation. He then proceeds to find and shoot every one who visited the clinic, doing the same to them. Unlike Tesla, they have no electrical powers. They then try to take over the world...Tesla does NOT approve.

** The fourth season episode "Chimera" is full of shout outs. Due to the plot involving Magnus and Tesla plugging their brains into the Sanctuary's computer system in order to hunt down a Praxean nanite, TheMatrix, {{Tron}} and [[TheTerminator Skynet]] are all mentioned by the GenreSavvy team, as well as a whole host of other sci-fi franchises.

Added DiffLines:

* OurAncestorsAreSuperheroes: It pegs UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla as a vampire with electric, and later magnetic, powers, [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Doctor Watson]] as a super-human genius, and UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper as a teleporting bloodthirsty maniac.
** Also, humans used to be slaves to an ancient society of vampires before we rebelled and killed them all (Tesla is not a true vampire).
** And there is, apparently, an entire advanced civilization living in sprawling cities deep underground. The [[VideoGame/{{Myst}} D'ni]], perhaps.

* HyperAwareness: Will. We get a little special effect that highlights the details that he notices to draw his conclusions, à la ''{{Psych}}'', but this effect isn't used as much later on.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: [[{{JustifiedTrope}} Justified]]. Dr Magnus was born during the reign of QueenVicky, and has lived in Canada for a very long time, therefore one would expect the character's accent to shift somewhat. Lampshaded in "Bank Job", when one of the hostages calls Magnus' British accent fake and she changes it to an American one to mock him.
