* TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf: "Code V"s do not reflect in mirrors. Taken further, in that they do not register on any artificial recording medium: they're invisible to cameras, inaudible to telephones and recording devices, and can't even be fingerprinted. The team uses video camera gunsights to identify vampires.

* ActuallyNotAVampire: [[spoiler:In "Mea Culpa", Michael shoots a suspect who's been avoiding the sun because he doesn't appear on a television taping a particular room -- turns out the guy was a criminal with the light-sensitive condition "xeroderma pigmentosum" and Vaughn was watching a ''tape'' on that television.]]

* BerserkButton: Mike intentionally tries to push Vaughn's in the first episode when he mocks him about the death of his squad in the Gulf war. Vaughn can be seen nervously checking the room for CCTV cameras until he's interrupted by Angie.

* DoWrongRight: Vaughn's reaction in the fourth episode when [[spoiler:Mike shoots a guy he incorrectly believes to be a vampire. Vaughn accepts that it was an honest mistake; what really angers him is that he ''missed the guy's heart'' -- if you're going to shoot at something that can twist your head off like a toothpaste cap, you want to make damn sure you kill it first try]].

* FireForgedFriends: Vaughn and (especially) Mike take an almost instant dislike to one another; [[CharacterDevelopment by the end of the series they've developed a grudging respect for one another]].

* WoodenStake: Vampires are particularly susceptible to wounds inflicted with pointy bits of wood, which messes with their healing factor somehow. The team has moved on from stakes, however, and use guns loaded with carbon-compound "dum-dum" bullets - though one still needs to aim for the heart. Vaughn also has, as his personal signature weapon, a device like a spring-loaded ice-pick with a spike made from the same compound.

* DefeatEqualsExplosion: Vampires don't just harmlessly crumble into dust when they're "neutralised"; they explode. Violently. As in, a staked vamp [[spoiler:in a steel coffin next to a steel door will blow a man sized hole in ''both.'']] Luckily, they make a noise very much like bacon frying when they reach the point of no return, giving one about three seconds to find cover when one turns into a hand grenade with the pin pulled.
