* OldShame: Chris Carter, the episode's writer, hates ''Space'' just as much as anybody who's ever had to sit through it. It's routinely ranked as one of the worst episodes of the series, even when taking the last few seasons into account.

* AccidentallyAccurate: In the mid-90s, the show did a StoryArc where it's revealed the government is secretly encouraging [=UFO=] conspiracy theorism as a way to distract people from the military-industrial complex. And then, lo and behold, in the documentary film ''Mirage Men'', a former government official reveals that's exactly what happened.

* [[BannedInChina Banned in the UK]]: The episode "Home" is outright banned by BBC Two, as it has too much graphic nature.

* RealitySubtext: In "Hollywood A.D." a film producer decides to make a movie based on Mulder and Scully's adventures, casting Garry Shandling and Creator/TeaLeoni (as themselves) for the roles, respectively. Scully mentions to Mulder that Leoni may have a crush on him, which he considers ridiculous. Any guesses to whom David Duchovny was married to at the time in real life?

Added DiffLines:

** "[[Recap/TheXFilesS01E03Squeeze Squeeze]]" and "[[Recap/TheXFilesS01E21Tooms Tooms]]" featured a liver-eating mutant. "[[Recap/TheXFilesS03E06TwoShy 2Shy]]" featured a fat-eating mutant. "[[Recap/TheXFilesS04E12LeonardBetts Leonard Betts]]" gave us the cancer eating mutant. "[[Recap/TheXFilesS04E03Teliko Teliko]]" featured a melanin-eating mutant. (The latter's villain could even replicate Eugene Tooms' tricking of squeezing into tiny places.) At least "[[Recap/TheXFilesS07E03Hungry Hungry]]", featuring a brain-eating mutant, presented the story from the monster's point-of-view.


Added DiffLines:

* ShortLivedBigImpact: Darin Morgan only wrote four episodes for the show's original run[[note]]and contributed to another two, "[[Recap/TheXFilesS02E03Blood Blood]]" and "[[Recap/TheXFilesS03E22Quagmire Quagmire]]"[[/note]]. However, he impressed many viewers with his [[TheLoonie quirky style]], and all his episodes are considered classics, with "[[Recap/TheXFilesS03E04ClydeBruckmansFinalRepose Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose]]" being seen by many as the best episode of the series.


Added DiffLines:

* TechnologyMarchesOn:
** Most of the computer-y episodes, but the trope is most prevalent in "[[Recap/TheXFilesS03E06TwoShy 2Shy]]", which features floppies, chatrooms and proper online grammar.
** As of Season 10 Mulder's got a smartphone with a camera and doesn't hesitate to use it.

* ExecutiveMeddling: For reasons never made clear , Carter ordered a slate of comedy episodes to open the first half of the sixth season, in contradiction to his original intent to pick up from ''Fight the Future''. That his new boss came to Fox from Comedy Central (and made no secret of his dislike of Carter) probably had something to do with it.

** Pretty much ''everybody'' involved with "Teso Dos Bichos" would love to forget it ever happened. Kim Manners himself despised it, even going so far as to [[FunnyMoments make T-shirts for everyone involved]] reading "I survived 'Teso Dos Bichos'" and even would always refer to it as "Teso Dos Bitches" in interviews and around fans.
