* ExtendedDisarming: the Middleman makes liberal use of {{Hammerspace}} doing this in the first episode before going on to prove his BadAss is in full working order.

Originally a comic book (that itself started as a television pitch), Javier Grillo-Marxuach aptly adapted it for a surprisingly faithful series that had one season on the increasingly inaccurately named [[Creator/ABCFamily ABC Family]]. The season was originally intended to be thirteen episodes long, but was cut to twelve for budgetary reasons (and still managed to end on a satisfying note). The script for the never-filmed thirteenth episode, titled "The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse," debuted in a table read at Comic-Con '09 with almost all of the original cast, and was released as a graphic novel shortly thereafter. It is definitive proof that TropesAreNotBad.

Added DiffLines:

*InfiniteSupplies: Lampshaded; The Middleman doesn't know where ''any'' of his stuff came from, it's just there.
-->I got recruited the exact same way you did. When the last Middleman hired me, he never said (who he worked for) and I never asked. Ida was already there. So were all the weapons and gadgets and things. I don't know where they come from, they just do. Maybe Ida runs the show. Maybe it's "[[TheIlluminati The Conspiracy]]." Maybe it's God. I'm just [[TitleDrop The Middleman]].

* AirVentPassageway: Lampshaded ("Was this building designed by television writers?") and then justified with "The [[ShoutOut Nakatomi]] Protocol," which makes the normally capillary-sized airvents big enough for people to crawl through

* WeirdnessCensor: Present, accounted for, and {{Lampshaded}};
-->'''The Middleman''': ''What makes more sense: that a [[GasLeakCoverup gas main exploded]], or that a [[MonsterOfTheWeek monster]] trashed a [[MadScience science lab]]? If I hadn't planted your lighter, some other pink-skinned Normal would have come up with a rational explanation. People want to believe that reality's normal. The ones who don't are freaks, and nobody believes them anyway.''

* MickeyMousing: Sensei Ping's every sudden move is accompanied by a "whoosh!" sound effect. Possibly an ActorAllusion to Mark Dacascos's [[IronChefAmerica most famous role]].
