** Notable in that the myth of Atlantis is actually true in the Stargate verse. It's just that noone knew that it happened in another galaxy and aliens were involved. The tale was passed onto the ancient Greeks by surviving Ancients who fled back to Earth through the stargate after sinking and abandoning Atlantis after it came under overwhelming attack by the Wraith.

'''Sheppard:''' Clowns? Oh yeah, the clowns. Well, we fight them, too. Entire armies, spilling out of Volkswagens. We do our best to fight them off, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogvKogtJw9c they keep sending them in]].

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: In the episode "Common Ground", during their escape Todd is at one point toying with his loaded gun while having it pointed right at the back of Sheppard's head. Of course this may be deliberate, since an alien from another galaxy is unlikely to have ever leaned how to safely handle human-made firearms, especially the Wraith's own handheld weapons stun only. The rest of the series generally averts it, and is very careful about their weapons.

* AloneAmongTheCouples: [[spoiler: John by the end of the series, as Rodney/Jennifer, Teyla/Kanaan and Ronon/Amelia have all got together and his WillTheyOrWontThey ShipTease Elizabeth has been turned into a replicator.]]
* AlternateRealityEpisode: "Vegas", the penultimate episode, which features Sheppard as a police detective in the title city chasing a Wraith that crashed on Earth after a failed culling. Mostly a DiabolusExMachina episode to give an excuse for the Wraith to find Earth in the main reality.

* TeenageWasteland: One episode featured a tribe of kids from age 25 and down. After they reached 25 they committed suicide, but only because [[PopulationControl they had to keep the population small small]] due to being kept safe by a shield that was slowly becoming smaller. But they didn't know that...

Added DiffLines:

* PopulationControl: There's an episode where the team visits a world [[TeenageWasteland populated only by teenagers and children]] because every member of the tribe commits suicide at the age of 25. This is also because of an energy shield problem, one that was installed by [[{{Precursors}} the Ancients]] to protect the planet from the Wraith (the BigBad of the show who are basically life-sucking space vampires)--only it doesn't cover the whole planet, so the Ancients gave their ancestors instructions on how to manage their population so they wouldn't have to leave the protected area. Atlantis eventually fixes the problem by providing the tribe with a greater power supply.

* TheEvilPrince: Subverted in an episode where Atlantis visits a royal family with the [[SuperpowerfulGenetics gene required to operate Ancient technology]] necessary to protect their planet from the Wraith. The king's son is a snobbish aristocrat who is clearly plotting to overthrow his increasingly fragile father and lock up his sister in the process. The subversion comes when it turns out that it was the ([[EvilAllAlong apparently well-intentioned]]) EvilChancellor who was the real brains behind the plot and locks up the ambitious prince when he has no more use for him.
