* RetroactiveRecognition: Subverted with Niecy Nash, who hosted the Style Network's "Clean House" for seven seasons; she was the only one to have a steady gig simultaneously with Reno 911!. Her hosting outlasted her role on "Reno" by one season. She also spent a season on DancingWithTheStars.

* BadassDecay: 'VHS Transfer Memory Lane' reveals amongst other things that Weigel was not only once confident and competent as a police officer, but also smart and even had Dangle of all people attracted to her. So, what happened? [[spoiler: A house fire that occured while the team was on the scene caused a chain reaction and started/created the Reno officers we know today. In Trudy's case, she was clinically dead for 2 minutes but came back and the damage to her brain from the smoke inhalation created the Weigel we all know in the series.]] She briefly recovers this in one episode but it doesn't stick.

* TheScrappy: Declan and Rizzo.
** ReplacementScrappy: Both these characters were introduced right after the deaths of Johnson, Garcia, and Kimball.
** The latter has the ''potential'' of being [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap rescued from the heap]].

** Carlos Alazraqui voiced Rocko on the 1990's Nickelodeon cartoon ''RockosModernLife''. Of course, the two roles are completely different.

* HilariousInHindsight: The episode "Fastest Criminal in Reno" has the cops set out spike strips to take out frequent offender "Fast Eddie" (played by Jeff Foxworthy). Eddie mangers to avoid the spikes (by going airborne from a hill), and the cops get into their cars to pursue him.... only to run over their own spike strips. It's funny because, like most other segments on the show, you think no officers would be so stupid to run over their own spike strips while pursuing a suspect, but years later, an episode of ''WorldsDumbest'' presented a video [[RealityIsUnrealistic showing a group of cops doing just that.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: By definition, Terry. The character appeared in 27 episodes (out of a total 88), and was easily the most popular recurring character not in the main cast. He even got screen time in the movie.

* CrackPairing: Jones and Garcia. The African American Jones and Latin American Garcia are partners when out on patrol, although Garcia is depicted as racist. In spite of this, the two are halfway competent as partners and have their own RunningGag of extended chase scenes throughout the show.

* UnfortunateImplications: PlayedForLaughs, without mercy.
** Just as often inverted, subverted, or averted, though: for example, it's hard to name another show where a character is openly homosexual, in a role of some authority, and has an active sex life. OK, he's a total idiot, but he's still the smartest guy in the station, and not even the rednecks like Junior or Garcia have a problem with his personal life.
