* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The theme song, for the visuals almost as much as the music. Thank you, network, for keeping BearMcCreary as the composer.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Very brief but in ''The Imperfections of Memory'', Joseph and Emmanuelle walk by a graffiti-covered wall. The camera lingers and eventually zooms to a specific graffiti: The image of a man that [[EpilepticTrees somewhat resembles]] [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Gaius Baltar]]. Next to the image is written "This is not me, It's just my body vehicle". It obviously has a deeper meaning and may even be some {{Foreshadowing}} but it is never referred to and has no weight to the rest of the episode or the following episodes.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: It can be hard to find anyone to root for among the main cast.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Lets just say that the last two episodes are a major BaseBreaker for ''Caprica'' watchers who kept on with the franchise even after BSG's controversial ending.
* GameBreaker: Being a "deadwalker" in New Cap City gives you [[{{Immortality}} immortality]] and RealityWarper powers.
* HarsherInHindsight: [[http://showblogs.syfy.com/caprican/opinion/racism-an-unacceptable-aspect-of-caprican-life.php "Dirt eater"]].
* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler:Willie Adama won't survive to grow up into Bill]].
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Sister Clarice's proposal to the Conclave]] at the start of season 1.5 / season 2.
** Clarice gets another one in ''Blowback'', shared by Agent Durham: The murder of [[spoiler: Mar-Beth]]. Agent Durham because he framed [[spoiler: Mar-Beth]] as a GDD mole and Clarice for the actual killing. To her credit, Clarice seems genuinely conflicted by the act but come on...
* NarmCharm: Robot Zoe dancing with Philo.
* OneSceneWonder: William B Davis (The Cigarette Smoking Man) as the Minister of Defense in the pilot.
* ScifiGhetto: In reverse, people not liking the lack of spaceships and battles.
* {{Squick}}: The "Grace by Graystone" ad in 01x13 ("False Labor"). The entire ad just screams "''tacky''!"
** Although it would have been ''fantastic'' to see that tackiness [[DoingInTheWizard placed in opposition to Clarice's attempts to present the exact same software as a "miracle" granted by the One True God]]!
* TearJerker: "False Labor"(1x13) Daniel interacts constantly with the avatar of his wife that he made. In one such occasion, he [[spoiler: confesses his crimes to her, and she says she forgives him. Daniel Greystone, who has shown bouts of anger scarcely before, proceeds to verbally abuse the avatar (who genuinely doesn't understand why he's doing any of this) and when asked what he wants, he grabs her by the throat, throws her onto the couch, screaming: "I want you to be REAL! I want you to be HER! My real wife would never forgive me like that - she would call me on all my crap, and walk straight out that door, and probably never come back!"]] Why this is such a hard moment is because [[spoiler: Daniel isn't only confessing what he did, he's also baring, essentially, that he ''knows'' Amanda is right in not coming back home.]]
* UncannyValley: The Cylons don't look even remotely human, but they have very human reactions and gestures. Examples include the first Cylon looking to Daniel for permission to finish off his opponent during the first demonstration, the Cylon ostentatiously checking his clip to see if there are any more bullets, and [[spoilers: the combat maneuvers in the Pyramid stadium]].
* TheWoobie: Both Zoe-A and Tamara-A are this to varying extents, though in the latter case it's particularly so. Zoe's situation in part seems to be partially her own doing, whereas Tamara is completely obvlivious - at least at first. As of the end of ''There Is Another Sky'', Tamara has [[spoiler:upgraded into an ActionGirl. Still pretty woobie-ish though.]]
** Lacy is quite the woobie too.
