* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Nana Visitor AKA Major Kira Nerys from Deep Space Nine as Madame X/Dr. Elizabeth Renfro
** John Savage as Lydecker counts for anyone who's seen ''Film/TheDeerHunter''.
** Hey! [[Series/{{NCIS}} Tony DiNozzo]] is Logan! And Michael Weatherly has said he was inspired by ''Dark Angel'''s Alec.
** ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'': Sharon/Boomer (Grace Park) as a female breeding X5, Leoben (Callum Keith Rennie) as a sheriff, Chief Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) as a hotel manager, Tory (Rekha Sharma) as Dr. Beverly Shankar, Crashdown (SamWitwer) as a transgenic named Marrow, Cally (Nicki Clyne) as an X6 named Fixit, Dualla (Kandyse [=McClure=]) as Joshua's girlfriend Annie Fisher, Narcho (Sebastian Spence) as Tinga's husband Charlie Smith, Elosha (Lorena Gale) as a teacher, Simon (Rick Worthy) as Detective Ramon Clemente, Gaeta (Alessandro Juliani) as Max's work friend Druid.
*** Grace Park is the only actor to have played both a transgenic and a Cylon.
** ''Series/{{Caprica}}'': Agent Durham (Brian Markinson) as Dr. Sam Carr.
** ''Series/{{The Office|US}}'': Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) as Phil, the "superhero" who gave Logan his exoskeleton.
** ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith) as Logan's ex-fiancée Daphne. Meg Masters (Nicki Aycox) as Max's sister Syl.
*** This is funny, as it means JensenAckles and Nicki Aycox, in addition to playing enemies on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', have played brother and sister on ''DarkAngel'', although Ben and Syl didn't appear onscreen together.
*** If we're going down that route, then this also means that Max's love interest was engaged to the woman who becomes the mother of her ''sort of'' ''[[{{VitriolicBestBuds}} partner-in-crime]]''. And considering it's a bit of a running gag in the fandom (especially of Alex/Max shippers) that Logan was a lot older than then 19y/o Max, having Mama!Winchester his ex-fiancée just about proved the point.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The audition tapes on the season one DVD reveal that there were originally going to be only six escapees, rather than the final number of twelve, and that Jondy was to be the subject of "Cold Comfort" and not Brin.

** Biggs was originally going to be Krit, but Joshua Alba was unavailable at the time. There were also plans to have Syl take on what eventually became Cece's role and to bring back Lisa Ann Cabasa as Tinga's twin.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBacklash: In the commentary for the season one finale, Creator/JessicaAlba praises the first season immensely and then completely brushes off season two like it was yesterday's garbage.
-->"The second season I'm not even going to mention because that really wasn't the show. The first season was definitely the show."

** Dave Mustaine had asked Eric Meyer to join Music/{{Megadeth}} several times, declining each and every time to stick with Dark Angel.

** Dave Mustaine had asked Eric Meyer to join Music/{{Megadeth}} several times, declining each and every time to stick with Dark Angel. He also hit up Durkin about joining, but the latter declined because he didn't want to give up Dark Angel (though, like Lee Altus and probably Meyer as well, Mustaine's out-of-control drug usage probably played a role in this decision).

* FanNickname: "DARK [[PrecisionFStrike FUCKING]] ANGEL", or DFA for short.
* ThePeteBest: All of their drummers before Hoglan except possibly Jack Schwartz (who at least appeared on ''We Have Arrived''). Lee Rauch has the dubious honor of being this trope not only for Dark Angel but also to Music/{{Megadeth}}, having played on a demo with them and nothing else.

** A fifth album, ''The Atrocity Exhibit'', was planned back in 1992 but never came into frution. Interestingly, [[Music/ExodusBand Exodus]] would release an album with the same title fifteen years later.

** There is also an adventure supplement for {{Shadowrun}} with the title Dark Angel, and though both the game and the show are set in near-future Seattle, the adventure was released about a decade before the TV show first aired.
