* SuspectExistenceFailure: In the first season episode "Kush", there's a crash, followed by several murders. When they settle things down by supposedly catching the suspect, he's killed and they have to reexamine their "fool-proof" method of determining the killer.

* ArbitrarilyLargeBankAccount: Justified; Magnus has been alive for over 100 years and probably half the world's leaders owe her a favor. When the newbie to the team asks if there is a health plan, Magnus says no. (Granted, the organisation is headed by probably the best doctor in the world with medical contacts in every corner of the globe, so it's possible their health plan is simply "Dr Helen Magnus". Also, the Sanctuary has enough resources to purchase a lot of new medical equipment, and pay the taxes and upkeep costs for a castle. Given that they always get help for any injuries or illnesses that occur, possibly they don't have a designed health plan because they'd have to write "Covers anything. Like, anything at all that could or could not happen to anyone, human or otherwise."

%%** 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.

* 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.
