--->'''Sam:''' Come on, Daniel. They've found the guy, they're bringing him in. You have to wake up. (''she moves over to hold his hand'') Daniel. You can't die on me now.\\
'''Daniel:''' (''weakly'') It's nice to know you don't just like me for my looks.

* ICantBelieveImSayingThis: One of the funniest parts of this series is watching the Very Serious Military Personnel describing or giving orders in absurd situations.
-->'''Hammond:''' What am I supposed to ''say''? (''pulls out microphone'') A glowing energy being is headed for Level 28. Lower your weapons and do not attempt to intercept it.\\\
'''Hammond:''' Okay, people. Let me remind you. This mission is recon only. Do not engage the enemy. I'm allowing the use of this ship because of the obvious tactical advantage it provides you. Under no circumstances is it to be used to travel through time. (''beat'') Never in my life did I imagine ever giving that order.

* ImAHumanitarian: Of a sort; Goa'uld System Lords (and possibly others) have a taste for live symbiotes, and consume them ritually. It's implied that this has become so prominent recently that they're actually experiencing ''zero population growth''. This was written in after someone did the math on Jaffa and figured out that there should be ''far'' more adult Goa'uld out there than the series had shown. The twist is that the System Lords only begin eating their own youngs after they've taken an adult human as a host. So they're not eating their own young directly, it's the parasite forcing the host to eat the parasite's young (which isn't better, frankly).

"Secrets" with a thrown knife, also neutralizing his palm weapon in the process.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [=RepliCarter=]'s preferred method of execution.execution is to morph her hand into a blade and run it through the victim, T-1000 style.



** Even as she suggests it, Carter's tone indicates she obviously considers it implausible.



** The Ori arc made a running gag of this, with one of Earth's ships beaming Daniel Jackson on board from a planet's surface, usually right in the middle of him trying to explain to some villagers that there was no magic, he was not a god, etc.
--->'''Dr. Jackson:''' You are making a mistake. There is no curse. The black knight is a security feature created by Merlin through the use of science and advanced technology. There is no magic-- (''the ''Odyssey'' beams up SG-1'')\\
(''later'')\\
'''Dr. Jackson:''' Once and for all: There was no curse. This is a device. There is no magic-- (''the ''Korolev'' beams him up'')\\

** In the episode ''2010'' the Aschen give Earth a life-extension drug that serves to explain why SG-1 hadn't aged at all in ten years. It also turned out to cause sterility, as part of an Aschen plot to depopulate Earth so they could turn it into an agricultural colony, necessitating TimeTravel to prevent the Earth-Aschen alliance.

** A straight example is the Goa'uld. In the first season, they are nearly ImmuneToBullets, requiring A LOT of firepower to take down permanently, and have super-strength. On multiple occasions, a single Goa'uld is capable of giving the SGC a run for its money. By the 2nd season, with a few exception they are as vulnerable as any human if you can get them away from that shield generator of theirs.

** On the other hand, it wouldn't be out of character for her to enjoy the technical challenge. She's stated that working on naquadah reactors and other high-tech devices is fun for her, so working with science she knows inside and out might actually be her way of shutting her brain off for a few hours.

* GodEmperor / GodGuise: Standard Goa'uld PR theme. Sufficiently advanced technology makes it easy for them to pass as classical pantheonic gods, and thanks to their ridiculous egos and the mind-screwery of the sarcophagi some of them even believe it themselves.

** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in "Touchstone", where Hammond explicitly points out that, since the NID facility officially does not exist, there is no jurisdiction conflict to prevent SG-1 from apprehending its personnel.

** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in "Touchstone", where Hammond explicitly points out that, since the NID facility officially does not exist, there is no jurisdiction conflict to prevent SG-1 from apprehending its personnel. He ''does'' however, insist that SG-1 not use lethal force when raiding the facility, as it's likely that most of those personnel are unaware of the crimes being committed there - specifically, experimenting with a weather control machine, which is wreaking havoc all across the planet while causing the world it was stolen from to destroy itself. As a result, [[spoiler:everyone who was actually conducting the experiments [[KarmaHoudini escapes]]]].

* LampshadeHanging: Frequently, often pairing up with GenreSavvy (see above), and forms the basis for much of the series' humor, particularly when Colonel Mitchell (Ben Browder) joins the cast. The episode "200" lampshades tons of tropes from sci-fi and movies in general to the show itself, including the act of Lampshading!
