** The character 'Deep Throat' gets his nickname from the Watergate informant. Mulder claims the shows' 'Deep Throat' is "...in the FBI". In RealLife, the 'real' 'Deep Throat' was later shown to be in the FBI.

** [[Recap/TheXFilesS04E12LeonardBetts Leonard Betts]], the cancer eating mutant. He doesn't ''want'' to hurt people and tried to only eat from corpses, but than he got exposed by a car accident and just couldn't fight the hunger anymore. Rob Roberts suffers from similar problems.

* PopularityPolynomial: After enjoying massive success in the '90s, the show's popularity went spiraling downhill in the '00s due to both SeasonalRot and, more importantly, the profoundly altered cultural climate [[TheWarOnTerror post-9/11]]. The mixed reception of ''I Want to Believe'' seemingly confirmed that the show was dead. However, it enjoyed a solid comeback in the '10s, thanks to both the rise of binge-watching (see BetterOnDVD above) and the [[BigBrotherIsWatching Edward Snowden revelations]] helping to put conspiracy culture back into the mainstream.



** Probably the most notable is Creator/BryanCranston in "[[Recap/TheXFilesS06E02Drive Drive]]". Creator/VinceGilligan, who wrote the episode, claims his performance in that episode is what inspired him to cast Cranston in his StarMakingRole in ''Series/BreakingBad''. Funnily enough, Bryan would later be in a movie called ''Drive''.

** If you're in a LesYay mood, the two teen girls in "[[Recap/TheXFilesS03E13Syzygy Syzygy]]" are... close.
*** Their catch-phrase "Hate him, wouldn't want to date him" is introduced as "Hate '''her''', wouldn't want to date her."

** There are also those that cite season 6 as the start of the decline due to the move from Vancouver to Los Angeles, claiming that the often dreary northwest weather enhanced the quality of the show, in contrast to bright and sunny Hollywood.

** Both Doggett and Reyes are seen this way by many fans. Doggett got less of it, mostly due to Robert Patrick's performance; many fans like him as a supporting/recurring character and only disliked the fact that he replaced Mulder. Reyes wasn't as lucky. The chemistry this pair of agents had couldn't compare to the epic levels which Mulder and Scully had.

Some fans who liked Doggett weren't happy when he didn't return for the 2016 revival and that Reyes did (not helped by the fact that Creator/RobertPatrick currently appears in the CBS series ''Series/{{Scorpion}}'').

* ActorShipping: Oh boy... Yes, there were fans who shipped Creator/GillianAnderson and Creator/DavidDuchovny rather intensely. You can check Website/YouTube {{Fan Vid}}s.

* CreatorsPet: Doggett's detractors accuse him of being one of these -- the writers seemed determined to have him save the day as often as possible when he first appeared, even if it required [[{{Chickification}} making Scully uncharacteristically weak or stupid]]. Confirmed according to TheOtherWiki. Apparently, Carter was obsessed with making much of the 8th season about Doggett. This upset David Duchovny who then asked to get to write and direct an episode revolving around Mulder's abduction. Chris Carter then rejected this idea because it "wasn't about Doggett".
