* KnightTemplar: Brother Adrian, and by extension the whole Brotherhood, who are absolutely convinced of the righteousness of their actions. And for bonus points, they apparently started out as an offshoot of the [[TheKnightsTemplar actual Templars]].

** A literal case, Chekhov's Grappling Gun: After it's given to Myka in "For the Team", she uses it in the season 3 episode "The 40th Floor" to [[spoiler: save her, Artie, and three Regents from a sabotaged elevator]].

** Played straight earlier when H.G. threatens to shoot her lawyer if he doesn't stand in a miniature, portable tar pit... which would kill him eventually but also leave enough time for Pete and Myka to save him. It's incredibly ''[[Film/JamesBond Bond]]''-esque. Justified as she only needed to delay Pete and Myka.
** [[spoiler: Multiple times with Sykes in the season 3 finale. Jinks knows he only has two henchmen, and could easily have taken both of them and Sykes out before they left for Hong Kong. Then after that when Myka and Pete find Sykes with HG and the hacker at the Chess Lock, they should have just shot him in the head before he figured out they were there]].
*** Justified with [[spoiler: Jinks, as he was undercover and needed to remain so]].

** Artie has Brother Adrian at gunpoint, and instead of capturing him, which would be nothing but beneficial, he instead lets Adrian lead him into a long conversation, long enough for his booby trap to spring on Jinks and Claudia, providing a crucial distraction and allowing Adrian to literally walk away. This too is justified, [[spoiler: as Brother Adrian was just a figment of his imagination]].
** In "We All Fall Down" [[spoiler: Evil Artie spends lots of time giving evil armor piercing monologues with the Warehouse crew and buys himself enough time to use several different artifacts to shake them off. If the team would just shoot him with the Tesla (if they didn't want to shoot him with a gun) they could have ended the episode much earlier as opposed to trying to reason with someone under the influence of the astrolabe's evil]]. It's justified since the point of [[spoiler:Artie's]] monologues, was to distract them and buy himself time, as well as the fact that [[spoiler:Artie]] knows precisely which buttons to push with them.

* WillNotTellALie: Jinks seems to have this problem, probably as a result of his ability. He automatically defaults to the truth when asked a question, and at best seems to be able to just refuse to speak of it. When he ''tries'' to lie, [[BadLiar he sucks at it]].
* WimpFight: Done with guns/teslas in the episode "Vendetta". Claudia and Todd suspect each other of being a warehouse infiltrator and a mob agent respectively. When they confront each other about these suspicions, they spend a good five seconds fumbling with their pockets in order to draw a weapon on the other.

** Though it's more obviously a BatmanGambit, [=MacPherson's=] plan to get at the Warehouse's Artifacts has Xanatos elements as well. The way he engineered his own capture was pure [[BatmanGambit Batman,]] but how he dealt with individual artifacts, (i.e., he benefited whether or not he managed to acquire them) was more Xanatos.

** In Season 3 [[spoiler: Sykes pulls off one to destroy the Warehouse. [[TheDragon Marcus]] fires Black Barty's cannon at the Warehouse, which Artie says could destroy it. Jane activates a shield which protects them from it, but also seals them in. Sykes leaves his wheelchair in the Warehouse once he can walk again, because it has the artifact equivalent to a nuke in it. With the shield still up, no one can escape. Whether it was the cannon or the bomb, Sykes was guaranteed to destroy the Warehouse and kill everyone inside. H.G. Wells manages to save everyone else via HeroicSacrifice, but the Warehouse is still destroyed. The ResetButton that they use to fix it was so dangerous that it bordered on GodzillaThreshold]].
