* {{Crossover}} / CrisisCrossover: In IDW's ''The X-Files'' comics, they starred in one of these in 2014. The Lone Gunmen received a cryptic file from the future, a file that could help Mulder and Scully stop a virus from wiping out most of mankind. To look for clues, they investigated [[{{Film/Ghostbusters}} a team of con men who claim to deal with the paranormal]], [[ComicBook/TheTransformersIDW giant alien robots]], [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIDW mutant reptiles]], and [[Franchise/TheCrow a man who came back from the dead]].

* ScullyBox: The full-length photo of the five main actors used in promotional material quite clearly shows Tom Braidwood (Frohike) and Bruce Harwood (Byers) standing on one. Fortunately, the most commonly used version of the photo is usually cropped to only show the actors from the waist up; unfortunately, the full shot is used for the cover of the special edition comic book, [[{{Narm}} and is very]] [[SpecialEffectsFailure obviously visible]].

Added DiffLines:

* LittlePeopleAreSurreal: ZigZagged in "Madam I'm Adam." While a star of female midget wrestling league is certainly out of the ordinary, her role in whole thing turns out to be surprisingly prosaic. [[spoiler: The Gunmen's client turns out to be her estranged husband, who underwent a drastic procedure to try and curb his anger management issues, which left him with partial amnesia. While the two were estranged, she had an affair with an obnoxious appliance pitchman. (Both are normal height) The husband apologizes and truly wishes to reconcile, and her lover proves himself a {{Jerkass}} by making a creepy and fetishizing comment about her height.]] The Gunmen, who are used to bizarre cases and situations (remember, they have ''Mulder'' as a regular client), react to this situation with barely a raised eyebrow.

Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToFool: Jimmy is definitely not the brightest bulb in the box, but he's also completely immune to being misdirected, and surprisingly good at knowing how to read people, meaning he'll see things the more cerebral Gunmen and Yves can't.

Added DiffLines:

* EatingTheEyeCandy: Jimmy's nurse in "Diagnosis: Jimmy" spends a bit of time admiring the view.


Added DiffLines:

* ObliviousToLove: In "Diagnosis: Jimmy", Jimmy fails to pick up on his nurse's overt flirting. He's usually the one member of the team to pick up on such things, but he ''is'' heavily medicated due to his broken leg...

* DescendedCreator: Tom Braidwood was cast as Frohike while serving as an assistant director on ''The X-Files''. Allegedly the casting director said, "We need Frohike to be your typical DirtyOldMan -- like Braidwood over there."

* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Byers.
** TheLancer: Frohike.
** TheSmartGuy: Langly.
** TheBigGuy: Jimmy.
** TheChick: Yves. More of a misplaced DarkChick, due to her WildCard status and [[DeadpanSnarker snarky personality.]]
** The SixthRanger: Kimmy and Morris Fletcher both fulfil this role, especially in later episodes.
