* MyRealDaddy:Although John Schulian created the character in Hercules for the episode The Warrior Princess his Xena was more of a FemmeFatale and then a DistaffCounterpart to Hercules. It was the head writer for Xena, RJ Stewart who refined the character as we know her.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Either Joxer is a funny comic relief or an obnoxious [[TheScrappy scrappy]] who shouldn't be in the same shadow as Xena and Gabrielle.

** It's even funnier when Lawless's character in ''Spartacus'' talks about how much she hates Thracians, considering that Xena is from Thrace.

* SeasonalRot: Season 5 is generally regarded by Xena fans as when the show went downhill, season 6 fares even worse.

* SeasonalRot: Season 5 is generally regarded by Xena fans as when the show went downhill, with some going so far as to call that season's "Twilight of the Gods" arc one of the worst in tv history, while season 6 fares even worse.is met with a BrokenBase, particularly the two-part finale, although many at least consider it an improvement over season 5.

Added DiffLines:

* NauseaFuel: "In Sickness and In Hell" sees Xena suffer from a nasty case of lice, Gabrielle getting disgusting foot rot, and bad cooking leading to stomach poisoning (which includes a moment of Gabrielle vomiting on Joxer). The production staff didn't miss this reaction to the episode, either; "Deja Vu All Over Again" features an exchange about how repulsive and unfitting for the show it all was.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThatScrappy: "Deja Vu All Over Again" zig-zags it with Joxer. When super fan Annie learns she's the reincarnation of Joxer instead of Xena, she's devastated--calling him a comic relief idiot that never should've been introduced. By the end, though, she comes to terms with it--saying that Joxer (for all his faults) was a guy with a big heart who'd do anything to help his friends.

** The season 6 ClipShow "You Are There".

to:

** The season 6 ClipShow "You Are There". There": a 20th century reporter (played by Michael Hurst) runs around Ancient Greece interviewing people about our heroines.


Added DiffLines:

** Additionally, a good deal of this arc can be boiled down to: "an unseen god seeks to remake the world even if it means killing off established gods, and a newborn daughter will be instrumental to achieving this." Does that sound familiar? Because, while not being exactly the same, it still sounds suspiciously like Season 3's Hope storyline. While there was far more concrete evidence about Dahak and Hope's natures upfront, but from the outsiders' perspective, it's not hard to see why the Olympians and others were suspicious and thought the worst.

* BrokenBase: Either Joxer is a funny comic relief or an obnoxious scrappy who shouldn't be in the same shadow as Xena and Gabrielle.
** News that the reboot would be doing away with the ambiguity of Xena and Gabrielle's relationship has received mixed reactions.
** The reboot also has suffered controversy for having Javier Grillo-Marxuach as the show runner, after he was partly responsible for a ''very'' high profile case of BuryYourGays on ''Series/{{The 100}}'' that opened the floodgates to the trope becoming a hot button issue across the TV landscape.

* RetroactiveRecognition: This show provided a stepping stone for many now-familiar faces in the science-fiction circuits, such as pre-''Series/{{Roswell}}'' Shiri Appleby, pre-''Series/{{Firefly}}'' Gina Torres, pre-''Series/{{Farscape}}'' Claudia Black, pre-''Series/{{iZombie}}'' Rose [=McIver=], and pre-''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' Selma Blair. There was also an early appearance from Kathryn Morris of ''Series/ColdCase'' fame, and Manu Bennett almost a decade before his roles in ''Series/{{Spartacus}}'' and ''Series/{{Arrow}}''. And of course, Karl Urban, who played no less than ''four'' different characters across the first five seasons.
