* EliteMooks: The Kull Warriors are part this, part SuperSoldier, created by Anubis to replace the increasingly-rebellious Jaffa. They are completely artifical constructs, genetically engineered, super-tough, and virtually mindless. Although they all have a Goa'uld symbiote, those were spawned without the usual genetic memory, and thus lack any free will.
* TheEmperor: The Goa'uld were divided between a number of {{Evil Overlord}}s with [[AGodAmI claims to godhood]], but several aspired to control over the entire Goa'uld domain. Ra of the first movie was retconned to have been a symbolic Emperor who maintained the fiction of unity, with subsequent infighting breaking out among the other System Lords [[EvilPowerVacuum over his succession]]. Several come close, but Ba'al is the only one to outright claim to be the 'Sovereign of the Goa'uld Domain' in his near-victory.\\\

* TheEmpire: The Goa'uld Empire was an evil empire in name only (the "empire" part, they're a proudly evil bunch). Territorially it was the most powerful grouping in the Mily Way Galaxy, but in fact it is deeply fractioned between numerous regional System Lords who [[EnemyCivilWar constantly fight each other for supremacy]] and after the death of TheEmperor Ra in [[Film/{{Stargate}} the original movie]] any semblence of unity is long gone. This initially worked in the humans' favor so they could focus on taking out each threat one by one, but frequently one of the Goa'uld would emerge victorious over the others to fill the EvilPowerVacuum and attack Earth directly.

* EnemyCivilWar: Happens ''all the time''. The Goa'uld are feudal AlwaysChaoticEvil megalomaniacs by nature; the usual process is to fight among themselves until a top dog emerges (Ra, Apophis, Sokar, [[DeathIsCheap Apophis again]], Ba'al, Anubis, [[MagnificentBastard Ba'al again]]...) then SG-1 wrecks the army of the top dog, and the cycle repeats itself. It's stated a few times in the series that the Goa'uld are actually doing more damage to their own forces than the puny Tau'ri; what Earth is really doing is continually upsetting the balance of power.

** The Goa'uld Nerus proposed an alliance with the SGC in order to cooperate against the Ori, [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope but he was working against them all along]].]]

** Despite being AlwaysChaoticEvil, some of the Goa'uld actually seem quite fond of each other - for example, Apophis really seems to care for his wife, Amaunet, and son, Klorel. At the same time, however, Apophis doesn't seem to care about his brother Ra, using the latter's death as an opportunity to muscle in on his territory. He also has no qualms about killing Heru-ur, his own nephew.

** In that same episode (the pilot), Apophis activates Earth's Stargate without the use of either a DHD nor the Earth Stargate's dialing computer. This ability is never referenced nor seen again.

* ExplosiveLeash: They don't explode, but the Kor mak bracelets work in a similar fashion. One is worn by the prisoner and one is worn by the guard. If the two are more than a hundred feet from each other BOTH parties get sick and die. This system would both prevent the prisoner from escaping and [[YouHaveFailedMe killing the guard for failure.]]

*** Potential FridgeBrilliance: the Tollan doesn't say Quantum Mechanics is wrong, he simply responds to Carter telling the story of Schrodinger's Cat by mentioning it as a primitive misconception. But Schrodinger described the thought experiment to point out an actual common misconception of quantum physics, not to suggest that it correctly described the situation (in reality, the cat's fate would not be indeterminate because the cat counts as an observer, and so does the instrument rigged to kill it if the particle decays, and so would anything down to a single molecule that interacts with the particle). Only though MemeticMutation has the story come to be used, even by scientists, as an illustration of the fact that isolated particles have an undetermined state, and the Tollan would have no way of knowing that. So he might have been correctly identifying the misconception illustrated by the story, not claiming quantum physics itself is a misconception.

* ArcNumber: Five. Or rather, its ordinal form ''fifth''. It is used in the titles of two separate episodes ("The Fifth Race" and "The Fifth Man"), the name of a recurring character (Fifth), and as a pseudo-series goal for humanity to become 'the fifth race'.

* AmnesiaEpisode: "Memento Mori" has team member Vala getting amnesia and lost in somewhere in America believing herself to be an ordinary human woman named Val and disbelieving in aliens after she was kidnapped and hooked up to a MindProbe. Exactly why she defaulted to that state, being a HumanAlien, is left unexplained.

** The Light Matrix Hologram in season 4's "The Light" has a mesmerizing effect along with a pleasant high. However, the withdrawal can be enough to drive people to suicide.

* CallBack: In "Citizen Joe". Aside from it being a RecapEpisode, the eponymous Joe also makes mention of several minor jokes that have no bearing on the plot, such as Jack's analogy in "Lost City" in which he compares [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Burns]] to a Goa'uld.

* ClosetGeek: Teal'c, surprisingly enough. Among his favourite films is ''Franchise/StarWars'' (he's seen it 9 times, and when asked for an example of a virgin birth, he immediately thinks of Darth Vader), and he mentions having played video games like ''VideoGame/DefJamVendetta''.
** The latter doubles as ActorAllusion as Christopher Judge (Teal'c) was one of the voice actors for Dem Jam Vendetta.
