* HandStomp: This is reversed in "The Prodigal" when hero Teyla shoves bad guy Michael off the top of the Atlantis main tower and then kicks his hands so he [[DisneyVillainDeath falls to his death]]. That's what you get for trying to steal a MamaBear's baby.

* GettingTheBabyToSleep: Teyla can only get her son to sleep by continually walking around Atlantis. Keller says that when she was a baby, she would only sleep in the car, so her parents had this habit of driving around the block at 3 AM.
-->'''Teyla''': Hmm... that would be lovely. At least I'd be sitting down.

** In "Outcast", Dr. Lee is trying to think up how to destroy the Replicator that is on the loose, and mentions that if it was a movie they would drop it into a [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} vat of molten lead]] or [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings a volcano]]. This, of course, [[EurekaMoment gave Sheppard an idea]].

** Large parts of season three's "Vengeance" is a reference to [[Franchise/{{Alien}} the first two Alien movies]].
** In the season two episode "Coup D'Etat", a Genii soldier contacts Atlantis, informing them that he and his men have seen several teams on various worlds dialing the symbols for the Atlantis gate. From this, he adds, he can conclude that [[Author/{{MarkTwain}} "the rumors of their city's demise have been greatly exaggerated."]]

* NecroCam: Parodied in the penultimate episode, a ShoutOut to CSI. The lighting, filter and camera effects that CSI uses are copied almost perfectly--except it's someone being murdered by a life-sucking alien.

* EngineeredHeroics: Lucius Lavin goes into the EngineeredHeroics business after his MindControl empire falls through. Then he tries to haggle on the payment ''after'' the hired villains did their part... When the protagonists show up, the hired villains, as their sworn enemies, perform some actual villainy.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewTheElectricBill: It routinely displays the entire city lit up despite only having a few hundred people on it, and despite the fact that looking for new ZPM's to power the city is a regular plot driver. It may simply be a scale thing, though. Each ZPM has enough power to open a wormhole to ''another galaxy,'' and they have Naquadah reactors with them (which are basically enhanced miniature nuclear reactors). It may just be that turning off the ''lights'' to conserve energy for whichever critical system keep draining these would be like turning off a faucet to save the water you need to keep Niagara falls thundering...

Added DiffLines:

* OurAncestorsAreSuperheroes: Not only it has AncientAstronauts, but they also sport non-technological superpowers, like telepathy.
** Teyla is revealed to be descended from humans who were experimented on by the Wraith, which gave them (and her, and others like her) the ability to sense the presence of Wraith.
*** This ability also allows her to tap into the Wraith psychic network and even temporarily possess a Wraith. Of course, it works both ways.

* 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.
