** After conjecturing that a computer has a twelve-core processor by glancing at its ''monitor'', a character is described as having the "the high score in virtually every massively multiplayer online role-playing game", a feat that would be unachievable in a human lifetime if most MMORPGs even '''had''' high score tables.

** People who dislike and/or outright hate every other character on the show will ''still'' love Ducky. But hey, it is [[Series/TheManFromUNCLE Ilya Kuryakin]]...

* HilariousInHindsight: The final line of "Twisted Sister," in which [=McGee=]'s sister thinks she may have killed someone, has Gibbs saying "Sometimes, [=McGee=], a little lie is good for the soul." Sis is played by Creator/TroianBellisario, who four years after the episode first aired would start to build [[Series/PrettyLittleLiars evidence to the contrary.]] [[spoiler: P.S.: She didn't do it.]]

* DesignatedHero:
** MemeticBadass though he may be, Gibbs can definitely be seen as this, given his occasional penchant for assholish behavior, bending or even ''breaking'' the very laws he's supposed to be enforcing, and utter hypocrisy in how he interacts with agents/officers from outside the team who're working on the same case. The series has shown that he could be ''running'' NCIS, if he had more patience for the politics. Plus there's [[DopeSlap the regular physical abuse of his subordinates]].
** Anthony Dinozzo can be seen as this too, with sexual harassment towards women (notably Kate) and his bullying of [[TheSmartGuy computer tech]] [=McGee=], such as constant insults, cruel pranks, and even convincing most of the women in the NCIS headquarters [=McGee=] was gay[[note]]Which, depending on your definition, also counts as sexual harassment.[[/note]]. He also has the same lack of regard for laws and hypocrisy toward agents/officers outside the team as Gibbs. It's all but outright stated that he's being groomed as Gibbs' successor. [[spoiler: Which in the end doesn't happen]]


Added DiffLines:

* PeripheryDemographic: This series is far more popular among tween girls than the typical PoliceProcedural, thanks to the popularity of [[PerkyGoth Abby Sciuto]].

** In Season 12, [=McGee=] and [=DiNozzo=] reaction to Jake and Gibbs' friendship can only be described as jealousy--the latter relentlessly pumps Ellie for information and all but flips out when she mentions their biweekly racketball game.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: As cited in the "harsher" post, the team's attitude in "Dead Man Talking" regarding the woman who turns out to be a pre-op transsexual, as well as the killer they're looking for comes off pretty transphobic nowadays--continually referring to her as a "guy", or with male pronouns, even as a "he-she" (which some consider a slur these days). In particular, Gibbs' snark about "adding that misdemeanor to the murder charge", regarding the woman having used the female restroom, is especially cringeworthy after the bathroom controversies of 2016. And Kate seems far more aghast at "Tony being on a date with a guy!", rather than Tony being on a date with, you know, a '''''murderer'''''.

Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Or rather, Abby's [[StalkerWithACrush psychotic stalker]] ex has a point, in that if he hadn't been stalking her and taking pictures of her, then he wouldn't have found the ''other'' stalker that had just kidnapped Abby on her way to court. Of course since it's [[DamselOutOfDistress Abby]] she's got the situation well in hand, but he still helped find the real bad guy who Team Gibbs didn't even know existed.

* CounterpartComparison: Shown in the S2 Ep12 episode "Doppelgänger", with the team working with civilian law enforcement, which are all extremely similar to the characters.
