* SouldCrushingDeskJob: Vic gets an office job, and it's implied he finds it extremely boring. Vic wants to be out on the streets in the thick of the action, busting people. Instead, he finds himself stuck in this soul-sucking position.

** Dutch and Billings in season 4, after Billings joins in with the others mocking Dutch after Dutch has covered for him hiding during a shooting at a car wash instead of taking action as an officer, is probably a better example.

** Ronnie's characterization might be considered a bit of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, as he wasn't in every season 1 episode but becomes more and more important to the Team about midway through season 2.

* NationalStereotypes: The Team has a high-risk warrant for a Korean perp, so naturally they almost catch him at a LAN Cafe playing ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}''.

* ThePunishment: Vic, for all of his sins and magnificent bastardom and success at manipulating everyone around him, is rewarded by [[spoiler:being given a $60,000 a year job as a Federal Law Enforcement Agent, with his supervisor (the one who was bamboozled into giving Vic immunity for his laundry list of sins and said job as an Agent of the US Government) having to neutralize the monster she empowered by giving him a cushy, if not unimportant, desk job for at least three years to keep him off the streets. It's also stated that, on top of her own duties, said supervisor will have to devote the next three years of her life, micromanaging Vic in order to make sure he stays neutered as well as bait him into quitting / committing an offense that would void his job contract/immunity deal, since if Vic manages to somehow last the full three years, his immunity becomes irrevocable and he can '''never ever''' be held accountable for his crimes. On the other hand, they can promptly throw him out. And with his laundry list public knowledge and his old nemesis slated to become the new mayor, his reputation as a Dirty, DirtyCop id permanent.]]
* PyrrhicVillainy: [[spoiler:Vic's final fate. He certainly fares better than most of the others. He has a well-paying job in federal law enforcement and full immunity for his sins, but his victory is hollow. Vic has betrayed all of his friends, who are either dead or now rotting in jail. His ex-wife and their children have gone into the Witness Protection Progam far away from him, while his mistress is determined that Vic will have nothing to do with their son, who will inevitably learn all about what a monster their father was. Furthermore, Vic's biggest strengths (his charisma and people skills) have been permanently tarnished, due to the fact that his KarmaHoudini required him to confess to all of his sins and as such; everyone knows now that he murdered a fellow law enforcement officer and betrayed one of his proteges in exchange for said immunity. And while he still has a job in law enforcement, the show portrays it as a three year prison sentence. He's working for people who can't stand the sight of him and intend to make his life such a hell he'll screw up, since the first and slightest violation of any term nullifies the deal. So not only is his supervisor is going to have a lot of help and support, they won't have to worry about being held accountable for any mistake he makes.]]
