* TheyJustDidntCare: One is tempted to think they didn't do research with their original claim about the Arthur mythos that makes the Morrigan a creation of Morgan Le Fay but actually they had to do some research to get that far, so one shall guess they just did not care.
* WhatAnIdiot / WrongGenreSavvy: [[AscendedFanboy The Adjuster.]] Apparently, at no point after getting his ClingyCostume [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman with associated]] FlyingBrick [[StockSuperpowers powers]] did he draw the obvious ComicBook/{{Venom}} parallels and worry about [[PowerDegeneration the suit being harmful to his health]]. Given how it's stated that the suit won't go off until you actually want it off, it's probable he didn't care.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: "If you ever do that to me again, I will shoot you myself." The friendship between Henry and the Big Guy is pretty much one of these all over, all the time.
** "Magnus, never, ''ever'' ask me to [[spoiler:kill you]] again."

** LesYay: Helen and Ranna. Oh, so very much.
*** Les Yay: At the end of "Monsoon". Surprisingly enough, Helen reciprocates!

* ShipToShipCombat: [[BelligerentSexualTension Helen/Nikola]] vs [[LoveMakesYouEvil Helen/John]] vs [[DryDockedShip Helen/James]]. Meanwhile, [[MentorShip Helen/Will]] shippers are roundly mocked, and [[LesYay Helen/Ranna]] shippers are thoroughly ignored.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: Not the low-budget CGI (which is surprisingly decent) but the goofy-looking muscle suit that the lead actor wears when he's turned into a hulking freak in one episode.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The sequel, to some. This is not helped by its copious usage of IdiotPlot.
* PuritySue: Reen sees Unir as this; your interpretation may vary on whether he's being honest with himself [[UnreliableNarrator or not.]]

* NarmCharm: As above, Will's dance for Kali. The fact that said dance is a full on show stopping BollyWood dance number ''has'' to mean they did it on purpose. It's just too damn ridiculous to be an accident.

* UnfortunateImplications:
** Tokai has this [[BlackComedyRape eccentric little habit]] of raping women who get too close (and at one point tries to rape Kyoko). This is almost always treated as FanService.
** All of the female characters are portrayed either as prostitutes, or a sexy lady one of the main characters have picked up, or models the politicians are having sex with, or ladies the yakuza are raping. Though there are two prominent female characters (Kyoko and an American politician, who demands Japan to drop their high import tax on American cars), their roles were later reduced where Kyoko ends up falling in love with Hojo and forgetting her mission to arrest him while the politician ends up sleeping with Asami which prompted her to drop her demands and leave the country.

* HoYay: Tokai. For example, when Kyoko's [[TheDragon Dragon]] Ozaki needles him about "taking it up the ass" from his one-time protege Hojo:
-->'''Tokai:''' (smirking) "You should let him do you, too! It's not just your ass! It rattles your whole insides! Wham! Wham!" (to Kyoko) "You want Hojo to give it to you so bad you can't stand it, can you!"
:: And he has many, many other lines like this throughout the series.
* MagnificentBastard: Hojo, Asami, Isaoka

* ValuesDissonance: A little over a hundred years ago, Helen and the rest of The Five hunted down a dangerous man who attempted to kill most of London. He also had Dissociative Identity Disorder, and thus wasn't fully responsible for his behavior. Nevertheless, Helen did her level best to kill him in cold blood in order to protect society, believed she had succeeded, and is still pretty okay with that. Will, a modern psychologist, is appalled.
