* TheyJustDidntCare: Intentionally invoked, especially in the earlier seasons. The producers decided to try and give the show a distinct feel by breaking all the rules of filmmaking by intentionally doing things like jump cutting between different takes that obviously don't match up and "crossing the line" with the cameras especially in scenes set in NCIS HQ. This has been dialed significantly in subsequent seasons.

* TooDumbToLive: Rivkin. Being told to leave the country ''thrice'', and doesn't get the message. Resisting arrest doesn't make it better.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: Abby is one of many quirky technogeeks inspired by the ''Franchise/The X-Files'' Lone Gunmen trio. One episode even features sailors named after TLG's creators, Glen Morgan and James Wong, as a ShoutOut.

** 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.

** Ari belives that the missile strike that killed his mother was ordered by Eli David, in order to "harden" him into a better killer. Keep in mind that Ari was a child at the time, and Eli was [[AbusiveParents his father]]. If that wasn't enough, he [[spoiler:orders his daughter Ziva to kill Ari, her half-brother, after Ari proves to be disloyal]].

* BadassDecay: Every time Kort shows up after season 4, something worse happens to him. It's no surprise that [[spoler: he ends up getting killed]] no matter what the circumstances.

** In "Dead Letter," Kort mentions that he was the best man at a dead agent's wedding. Tony doesn't believe him. Either Kort's lying to gain sympathy and seem less guilty, or he just killed his friend (of which he does have very few).
