** If there was any doubt as to Percy's qualification, it was no doubt removed as of episode 1x21, "Betrayals", and his status is solidified by 1x22, "Pandora". This man could give [[{{Smallville}} Lionel]] [[TropeCodifier Luthor]] a run for his money.

* WhatAnIdiot: In Season 2, ''no one'' in Division realizes that they've gone rogue. Apparently, they honestly believe that legitimate government agencies change control by coup d'etat, rather than presidential appointment. They're actually shocked when [[spoiler:a company of Marines show up to storm the compound]].

Take it to the thread
* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Percy]], the head of Division, at first seemed like an AffablyEvil character who was OnlyInItForTheMoney, working for {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s and criminal organizations just as easily as for the government. However, as the series progressed, we've seen just how far he'll sink to achieve his goals, including murdering the loved ones of his own agents to keep them loyal. Perhaps the most shocking example of this was the revelation that [[spoiler: the terrorist who killed [[TheDragon Michael]]'s family was, in fact, a Division agent who did so on Percy's orders so that Kazim Tariq could be Percy's mole in al-Qa'ida. When Kazim accidentally killed Michael's family instead, Percy recruited Michael with the promise of getting even.]]

* OneSceneWonder: Jean Reno as the creepy Victor. The audience response to him in contrast to his screentime is why we have ''TheProfessional''.

But more to the point, she's the resident TortureTechnician and is quite skilled at her job, using everything from electrocutions to breaking bones to threatening ''lobotomies'' in order to get information out of her victims -- and it's quite clear she enjoys doing it. She's the one person Nikita is afraid of.

* CompleteMonster: Percy. ** Amanda. Hint: if you're being detained and ''she'' walks into the room, it's time to start screaming. She even manages to bring Nikita to tears during her capture. ** Also, in "Echoes" [[spoiler: the Zetrov czarina version of Alex. After seeing her kill Nathan and their future child, it's no wonder why Alex fears this version of her.]] ** Brant, in ''spades.'' Nikita informs us that one of his workers hadn't put something together quickly enough, so he brought in the worker's wife and ''broke both her arms in front of him.'' And then threatened his kid. He later [[spoiler: murders Senator Pierce]] just to lure Nikita out into the open to settle his grudge against her. No wonder Nikita kicked his ass in the flashback. *** This also makes Percy releasing him yet another MoralEventHorizon... for a character who really didn't need anymore.

* SeasonalRot: The drastic changes to the show's setup in season 3 were not welcomed by the fans, as well as several unpopular plot twists that caused the ratings to drop like a stone until the following season was not only the last, but given just six episodes.
