** In the midst of the 2016 American presidential election, the dangers of President Clark's brand of authoritarian ultranationalism and xenophobia seem more relevant than ever before.

** In ''The War Prayer'' in Season One, the home guard members mention their conspiracy to stage a mass assassination of the major ambassadors of Babylon 5 - Delenn, Londo, G'Kar...[[PhysicalGod And Kosh]]. TooDumbToLive embodied right there, if the Home Guard thought they could kill a Vorlon.

** Sheridan comes perilously close to crossing it when he [[spoiler: orders the use of human telepaths altered by the Shadows as weapons against Earthforce]]. Only the fact that [[DirtyBusiness he does it reluctantly and fully understands the implications of what he's doing]] prevents him from fully succumbing to the MEH.
*** On the other hand, Sheridan did it specifically to disable Earth ships so he wouldn't have to destroy them and kill their crews, and the fact that ships were only disabled becomes important later.
** The Season 5 episode "Learning Curve" shows the Rangers as a violent, completely unaccountable paramilitary group who will violently avenge any offense against one of their members with no regard for local law enforcement or due process.

** The sheer amount of untimely deaths suffered by the cast, which even more than ''Film/Poltergeist'' can make you wonder if there's a curse on them:

*** While the CGI can look pretty bad when it's mixed with (or replacing) live actors, the ships hold up pretty well (even if they do look a little "too slick.") But the CGI spaceships let them pull off some serious SpecialEffectsOfAwesome, such as Starfuries pivoting on their axis to shoot pursuing fighters, as well as having relatively realistic ranges in big space battles (and having big space battles to begin with on the show's shoestring budget.)

* BaseBreaker: Marcus Cole caused huge trouble while the show was being broadcast, with all out war between the fans who thought he was a fun GentlemanSnarker and the ones who thought that he was an irritating Gary Stu who'd only been brought in as MrFanservice. Things got even worse when [[spoiler:he died (mostly) at the end of the fourth season, and his anti-fans celebrated while his fans launched a fervent campaign for his resurrection.]]

*** This Jewish troper thinks [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome the song kicks ass]]. Perhaps the good rabbi simply agreed.
