* RammingAlwaysWorks: The modus operandi for the "Drone" weapons that the Ancients seem to favor. A cephalopod-esque guided missile weapon about a meter long, capped in some sort of energy-channeling ram head that can bore a hole clean through anything it hits. Against smaller targets, only one or a few are used. Against capital ships, [[ZergRush swarms]] are deployed. The weapons are sometimes recoverable after use since they don't work by exploding.

* SkipTheAnesthetic: When the team first met Ronon, he revealed he had a tracking chip at the base of his brain stem that the Wraith used to track him down for sport. As he didn't trust the others, he insisted Dr. Beckett perform fairly intense surgery with him awake, sitting up and holding his gun. Subverts the norm as he passed out from the pain once the chip was removed.

** The Wraith hive ships themselves. They're biological in nature, and made of a mixture of slimy skins, tenticles, and veins. Standing inside one looks a hell of a lot like what would happen if you could stand in a tumour.

** The Wraith hive ships themselves. They're biological in nature, and made of a mixture of slimy skins, tenticles, and veins. Standing inside one looks a hell of a lot like what would happen if you could stand in a tumour. Worse. One episode actually reveals that the Hive ships were once human when Ronan and another Atlantis operative are infected by Michael, and start to change into hive ships.

* UnresolvedSexualTension: Elizabeth and Sheppard.

* WhamShot: After the successful destruction of the Asuran homeworld in "Be All My Sins Remembered" by the Tau'ri-Wraith-Traveller alliance, the last shot of the episode reveals the apparently still alive [[spoiler:Elizabeth Weir]] clad in villain gear and commanding a Replicator ship.

The Wraith who regularly visits the last shot of planet enjoys fine cuisine and wines, despite the episode reveals fact that they provide no nourishment for him. He considers himself a more enlightened and civilized Wraith than his brethren for allowing the apparently planet to live in peace (instead of being constantly submitted to genocidal harvests) in exchange for a small but steady food supply. He admits he does enjoy [[NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine his dinners with the magistrate]], to whom he is [[AffablyEvil courteous and polite]], but since he's still alive [[spoiler:Elizabeth Weir]] clad in villain gear a life-sucking monster this is capped off with things like the Wraith pointing out that [[GallowsHumor the previous cook was tastier than his meals]], and commanding a Replicator ship.he threatens to annihilate the whole planet unless they give him more people to feed on so he can "provide" for his Wraith friends.

* EatingOptional: Played with for the Wraith. They don't eat food, they "feed" on lifeforce through a sucker on their hands. While it functions essentially the same, it is its own distinct process. Though one 'cultured' Wraith is shown to enjoy eating regular food, he admits that he just savors the taste but gains no sustenance from doing so.

Moved to the Trivia tab.
* YouLookFamiliar ** Craig Veroni, who played Dr. Peter Grodin, first appeared in ''Series/StargateSG1'' as an unnamed weapons officer aboard the ''Prometheus'' in the episode "Grace". It was never confirmed if the two were the same character, or if Craig had been re-cast as a different person. ** The Lord Protector from "The Tower" originally appeared twice in ''SG-1'' as Harlan, the amazingly annoying inhabitant of Altair who turned SG-1 into robots. -->"Komtraya!" ** Creator/JewelStaite was a Wraith before she was Dr. Keller. Not very noticeable however, since the Wraith part required full prosthetic make-up that made her virtually unrecognizable. ** In a fairly ludicrous example, an actress in the early episode [[Recap/StargateAtlantisS01E07PoisoningTheWell "Poisoning the Well"]] ended up playing the ''exact same role'' to one she did in the ''Series/StargateSG1'' episode "Cure" where Tretonin is discovered. ** Christopher Heyerdahl played a character named Pallan on ''SG-1'', and the Athosian Halling on ''Atlantis''. His largest role is the Wraith Todd. At one point he even portrayed both Halling and Todd ''in the same episode'' (without any shared screentime however). ** Paul [=McGillion=], who plays Dr. Carson Beckett, first appeared in the Stargate 'verse as Young Ernest Littlefield in the ''SG-1'' episode "The Torment of Tantalus". Incidentally, he was the first human to travel through Earth's Stargate in modern times. ** Garwin Sanford played the Tollan Narrim in the ''SG-1'' episode "Enigma", and also plays Dr. Elizabeth Weir's fiancÚ Dr. Simon Wallis. ** Captain Alicia Vega, introduced in season five, had previously appeared in "The Tao of Rodney" as a scientist that Rodney overhears (telepathically) saying that Ronon is "hot". After Vega died, her actress joked that she still has a twin sister serving on the city that could appear in future episodes. ** Mike Dopud played a Runner named Kiryk in ''SGA'', but he also played a BountyHunter in ''SG-1'' and a Lucian Alliance member in ''SGU''. ** Richard Kind (Lucius Lavin) played Dr. Gary Myers (the guy whose translation Daniel corrected) in ''Film/{{Stargate}}''. ** Megan Leitch played both Ke'ra (a de-aged version of Linea, a biochemical terrorist/mad scientist) and Helia, the arrogant Lantean warship captain.
