Added DiffLines:

* GeneticMemory: The Goa'uld (the actual snake-like beings that possess humanoids) explicitly have this. The memories are passed down voluntarily by the queen when she spawns (she can choose to modify or withhold these).

* Leitmotif: The Nox have this when they appear in an episode. They're the only species to have this distinction and it only happens three times.

* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: The season one episode "Hathor" was heavily disliked by both fans ''and'' the producers, and in following episodes the characters mention that they have agreed to never talk about it again. True to that, [[CanonDiscontinuity the specific events of the episode are never revisited]], with characters only talking about the "Hathor incident" without saying what actually happened, and the details of how Goa'uld queens produce offspring being {{retcon}}ned to asexual. Even Hathor's reappearance in "Out of Mind" and "Into the Fire" doesn't go into many details, only that the team, particularly Daniel and Jack, have developed an intense loathing of her.

* 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 being eating their own young 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).

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotDumb: in "The Nox" the SG-1 team encounters a race called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Nox]]. The Nox are apparently primitive, but they have the innate ability to make things vanish. They have an extreme commitment to pacifism and continually interfere with the SG-1's attempts to kill Apophis by making their weapons disappear. At the end of the episode, the Nox save Apophis from certain death and send him safely back to his home through the Stargate, at which point O'Neill explains that Apophis is going to come back with greater numbers and enslave all of them if they stick with their 'no fighting' policy. At that point, one of them waves their hand and a big ass floating city appears in midair. They realize that the Nox are actually way more advanced and run back home through the Stargate. The Nox would go on to make other appearances that similarly result in a gentle, but thorough, curbstomping.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: The Jaffa, although simultaneously justified and {{lampshade}}d in later episodes when Jack explains that the staff weapons are designed to intimidate, while human weapons are designed to kill. Essentially, its really hard to "aim" by pointing a six-foot staff at things. (See KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter below.) This doesn't excuse the few occasions where a Jaffa uses a Zat with similar results, though.

** If any orbiting Goa'uld ship is firing on the surface, it will hit every single shrubbery in the background before it hits an actual target. Especially embarrassing considering they use beam weapons, which can only possibly travel in a straight line.

* IdiotBall: The Tok'ra take this and run with it all through the series. Despite technically being the good guys, they're still Goa'uld and display the same megalomania and scant self-awareness typical of their species. They refuse to share their technology with their allies for condescending reasons, despite the fact that most of their problems are of their own construction and the humans are always the ones to bail them out. This is most clearly demonstrated in "Exodus" where they end up being fooled by a Goa'uld prisoner pretending to faint, and the whole thing snowballs until the star they're orbiting explodes.
