* BackwardsFiringGun: When facing off against an escaped alien prisoner in "The Take No Prisoners Syndrome", J grabs an unfamiliar alien weapon from the armory and threatens him with it. The Bug sneeringly informs J that he's grabbed a "Sonar Tube" and is holding it backwards. J turns it around, looking at the brace-like structure on the end he's pointing at himself, then points it back at the Bug and pulls the trigger. A small nozzle promptly pops up and aims a targeting laser at J's forehead, forcing him to jerk the blaster up before it nearly takes his head off.

* AscendedExtra: Jeebs, Frank and the Worms. Essentially one scene wonders in the first movie, but with frequent appearances in the series (each even scoring major episode plotlines to varying degrees). Their status as {{AscendedExtra}}s on the show led to their becoming {{AscendedExtra}}s in the next two movies.

** Another has a ConspiracyTheorist going back in time and kidnapping MIB founders. Nobody except J (who has a [[MyBrainIsBig intelligence bump]] due to an ImportedAlienPhlebotinum) can remember them or how MIB is being affected by their disappearance. Oh, and [[YouHave48Hours he only has 22 hours before his intelligence bump kills him]].

* ExpendableClone: The Quick Clones, as noted above. In one episode it's shown that quick clones start out as a vat of the same goo they dissolve into, so its possible that it could even be ''recyclable''.
