* TheUnintelligible: Actor Til Schweiger has always been known to deliver his lines in a very mumbling fashion. As Hamburg's Hauptkommisar Nick Tschiller this has become memetic.
* VitriolicBestBuds: In Münster both the relationship between Professor Karl-Friedrich Boerne and Hauptkommissar Frank Thiel and that between Boerne and Alberich qualify.

** This may in part be due to the fact that many of the Tatort episodes are only partially shot in the city they are set in (Munich being the one big exception) and thus local landmarks have to be shown to throw less attentive watchers of the scent of the CaliforniaDoubling.

* AlwaysMurder: Nearly every case involves a murder, often also more than one. Suicide is less common. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], because the cops are practically always from the homicide division[[note]] A notable exception in the early days of the series was ''Zollfahnder'' Kressin, an investigator for the federal customs service[[/note]].

In its GDR days Polizeiruf 110 also had crimes other than murder, especially in the early days as admitting murder happened in the GDR was something of a political no-go at first[[/note]].

The series is described as "the last great campfire of television"[[note]] meaning a series where most viewers still gather regularly and where the newest episode will then be a big topic for conversations at work etc. the next day[[/note]] and has a cult following in German-speaking countries. In many cities, groups of people will gather in a bar every Sunday at 8:15 p.m. to watch the screening of the latest episode together.

One particularly bizarre aspect of Tatort fandom is that despite the self contained nature of the individual episodes (you can really watch any given Tatort on its own), there are almost no casual viewers. People usually watch (and love) every single one of them or don't watch any at all. Some people have switched from the former to the latter within mere weeks. To fans missing "even one episode" is SeriousBusiness

* TheBeautifulGame: Ludwigshafen-based Lena Odenthal (Ulrike Folkerts) used to be a fan of 1. FC Kaiserslautern but now roots for SC Freiburg. Hamburger Frank Thiel (Axel Prahl), exiled to Münster, is an inveterate supporter of FC St. Pauli and often can be seen wearing St. Pauli T-shirts, scarfs etc. Hannover's Charlotte Lindholm (Maria Furtwängler) supports Hannover 96 and even had to investigate the murder of a player once.



** In the Kommissar Stoever episode ''Habgier'' (Greed) 1999, [[TheBeautifulGame football]] legend Berti Vogts holds a rabbit and saves a family from being killed in a gas explosion.

A bit more veiled, Felix Murot (played by Ulrich Tukur), the family name being an anagram of "tumor". (He had a very plot-relevant brain tumor.)

Added DiffLines:

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: "Im Schmerz geboren", where 50 people bite the dust. (More a case of AudienceReactions - in Germany ''and'' Tatort such a bodycount is seen as extremely unusual.)
