* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Scorpius as a HeroAntagonist by way of WellIntentionedExtremist, which stems from the fact his purpose behind his actions is sound and even justifiable -- the Scarrans are ''not'' nice people.

* UglyCute: It's a guarantee that most viewers will see some characters as this. [=NamTar=]'s original form is a good example, as it looks quite similar to [[ReturnOfTheJedi Jabba's pet]].

** Kaarvok from season 3's "[[Recap/FarscapeS03E06EatMe Eat Me]]" is a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalistic]] MadScientist with a hand-held cloning machine on standby. He's willing to do anything to ensure that he has more food...or family; he's forgotten that there's a difference. This includes cloning his victims (before killing one in front of the other), keeping Rovhu's traumatized Pilot alive so his regenerating limbs can be harvested for meat, and forcing members of Moya's crew to breed with his degenerate clone army just so he'd have [[EatsBabies something tastier]] than clone-brains to look forward to.
** Tauza from season 3's "[[Recap/FarscapeS03E11Incubator Incubator]]" is a Scarran noble who oversees their breeding program, where the humanoid Sebacean women are kidnapped (any families or loved ones with them are killed) and forcibly raped by Scarran soldiers. Tauza subjected 90 Sebacean women to this, with none surviving. One woman had a child, later named Scorpius. Tauza sought to purge the young half-breed of all "Sebacan weakness" by torturing him [[ColdBloodedTorture physically]] and [[MindRape mentally]]. Tauza lied to Scorpius, claiming he had a Scarran mother who had been raped by a Sebacean, but she later revealed the truth when Scorpius sought to rebel, showing him a video of his mother's violation to hurt him. Cruel, arrogant, [[FantasticRacism racist]] and vicious, Tauza embodied the worst of Scarran culture, and under her hand for all his formative years, it's no wonder Scorpius developed a genocidal hatred of the Scarrans.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** The Blue Moya in "Through the Looking Glass". This episode one of the creative ones, even though its so hard to watch. The cinematography conveys the pain of some of the alternate Moya's by being incredibly uncomfortable. On top of that, the "Blue" Moya is an ear-rape machine.
** D'Argo's howls from the end of "Bad Timing" will haunt your nightmares forever, and are just made worse by the context.

* CultClassic: If ''Xena'', ''Sliders'', ''[=SeaQuest=]'', and [=B5=] are largely forgotten, then there was zero chance that a show airing on Sci Fi would leave a lasting impression. It didn't help that the show itself [[CerebusRollercoaster veered between the two extremes]] pretty often.

* CultClassic: ''Farscape'' isn't underrated (it won awards when it originally aired), it's just that it's mostly forgotten. If ''Xena'', ''Sliders'', ''[=SeaQuest=]'', and [=B5=] are largely forgotten, no longer relevant in pop culture, then there was zero chance that a show airing on Sci Fi would leave a lasting impression. stick.

** Although YMMV heavily on the former point, since today Season 3 is often considered the best season of the entire series.

Added DiffLines:

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: "Prayer". Wall-to-wall torture and death with no respite. The scene with Scorpius and Crichton spinning in the cockpit doesn't further the plot in any way; it's there so the show can throw in a joke at the very beginning. Still, the episode is worth watching in a ''Did they actually just do that'' sort of way.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: YTV, a Nickelodeon-flavored Canadian channel was the first to pick up the show in the Great White North, probably misled by the fact that the show was made by Henson Studios. This did not end well, since they only bought the first season and edited the crap out of it

YTV, a Nickelodeon-flavored Canadian channel was the first to pick up the show in the Great White North, probably misled by the fact that the show was made by Henson Studios. This did not end well, since they only bought the first season and edited the crap out of itit.
** A newly-appointed head of the Sci-Fi Channel was a big proponent of ''Farscape'''s 'edginess'. This was partly due to the presence of Jim Henson's moniker, not to mention the family-friendly puppets; both of which were unnerving to a company that was re-styling itself as an adult network.
