** While not technically an infirmity, the entire fifth season was written to accommodate Lucy Lawless's pregnancy, sidelining her and giving most of the action to Gabrielle and various supporting characters.

* PromotedFangirl: In a move unprecedented in television history, popular Xena fan fiction writer Melissa Good was hired specifically ''because'' she was a popular fan fic writer (of the [[TransplantedCharacterFic uberfic]] ''Tropical Storm'' and its sequels, among others). She wrote the sixth season episodes ''Coming Home'' and ''Legacy'', as well as a third musical episode that was supposed to involve Sappho as a Gabrielle lookalike, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen which never went past the outline stage]].

** Michael Hurst, who starred on ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and made several guest appearances On Xena directed quite a few of the better done episodes. In fact, he was such a recurrent director, that the cast and crew, (all the way up to the executive producers) started to call him "Cup-Of-Blood-Michael" due to his love of using fake blood, and penchant to want more and more. You can thank him for the episode "To Helicon and Back"; One of the most gruesome and violent episodes in both the shows history, and that of television.

* RunningTheAsylum: Several episodes of the 6th season of were actually written by a (critically acclaimed) FanFic writer who was approached by the creators of the show and asked to write a bunch of episodes.

* TakeThat: Charon's entire rant in ''You Are There'' where he bashes Hercules for never paying his tolls while comparing Xena more favorably against Herc was more than likely a giant TakeThat directed against Kevin Sorbo. By the time this episode had aired, Hercules had already ended and Kevin Sorbo himself had ended his Hercules stint on a very sour note with Rob Tapert. Tapert had wanted to continue Hercules for three more seasons while Sorbo himself was tired of playing Hercules and wanted to move on to Andromeda, in addition to already disliking Tapert, claiming that Rob had taken away money, production value, and his favorite writers away from Hercules to benefit Xena. Sorbo himself admitted that things didn't end well with Rob Tapert in his autobiography and all the things Charon said about Hercules was more than likely a case of WriterOnBoard where Rob Tapert was venting and expressing his exact thoughts on how ungrateful he considered Kevin Sorbo to be.

** When Lucy Lawless was thrown from a horse during a stunt on ''TheTonightShow'', it triggered a story arc where Xena was in a death-like trance and her soul had to be carried in the bodies of other characters on the show. Thus, "Xena" could still appear on the show while Lucy Lawless was recuperating. Two of the soul-carriers were Xena's enemy Callisto and Autolycus, the King of Thieves.

** Not to mention one episode that featured identical reincarnations of all three... but with Xena and Joxer switched (to enable Xena and Gabrielle to ''finally'' get a HappilyEverAfter).
*** A later episode also [[spoiler: switches Xena and Joxer back so Xena and Gabrielle are in love in their own bodies.]]
