* 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}}'' Creator/GinaTorres, pre-''Series/{{Farscape}}'' Creator/ClaudiaBlack, 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 Creator/ManuBennett almost a decade before his roles in ''Series/{{Spartacus}}'' and ''Series/{{Arrow}}''. (Other ''Spartacus'' actors who earlier appeared on ''Xena'' include Craig Parker, Kevin J. Wilson, Antonio Te Maioha, Stephen Lovatt, Craig Walsh-Wrightson, Jeffrey Thomas, and Peter Feeney.) And of course, Creator/KarlUrban, who played no less than ''four'' different characters across the first five seasons.

** Ares falling out of the sky after Gabrielle accidentally depowered him. Sadly, Kevin Smith died in kind of the same way.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Some of the CGI and blue-screen effects used in the earlier episodes (such as in "The Titans", "Prometheus" and "Mortal Beloved") have ''not'' aged well. Somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justifed]], as the budget wasn't exactly high.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: The gods in the "Twilight of the Gods" arc. They are trying to take 1 life in order to save ''their families'' and the beings they love at the very least (putting aside their responsibility to humanity and their godhood). Considering that we already established that if Eve had died as a baby, she would have gone straight to Heaven or the Eleysian Fields, to eventually be reincarnated - something that the Gods know and are very familiar with - from the Gods' perspective you can see exactly why killing her seemed reasonable.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

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