In many respects it's a more comedic, fantasy oriented version of ''Series/TheXFiles'', with a generous side helping of {{Steampunk}}. Their standard sidearm StunGuns are called Tesla's (actually created by Tesla) and utilize vacuum tubes in their design. The emphasis here is also almost entirely on magic; free energy devices are not mentioned, which is a marked divergence from warehouses of this type that are believed to exist by RealLife [[ConspiracyTheorist conspiracy theorists]].

** The episodes "Duped" and "Fractures" give various alternative interpretations of Creator/LewisCarroll's stories. Artie says in "Duped" that the author's publicized writings were Warehouse fabrications to hide the truth about the mirror. "Fractures" reveals that the descriptions of the characters in the stories, particularly the Mad Hatter and the hookah-smoking caterpillar, were references to artifacts which existed along with the mirror.

There have been 12 prior incarnations of the Warehouse that stretches back into Ancient Egypt. The Warehouse itself has a [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Omniscient Council Of Vagueness]], between its Agents, Caretaker and Regents, but there are individuals who have an eye on unlocking its secrets for their own means. Outside of hunting down the new artifacts, there is always a dilemma cooking up back at the warehouse where one of the miscellaneous items is being experimented on, stupidly misused or otherwise going haywire.

** Parodied in "No Pain, No Gain" when Steve borrows the Prius to help Artie on a search (specifically mentioned as borrowing her Prius C, not borrowing her car as people normally talk). He points out some of the features, only for Artie to snap at how useless they are in their current task.

** Not an alien spy, but he probably made an artifact that is now in the Warehouse. He and Edgar Allan Poe, Harriet Tubman, H. G. Wells, Alice Liddell, and on and on.

* BusbyBerkeleyNumber: The original marquee from the Strand theater which, when triggered, produces a several chorus lines of tapdancing showgirls and compels anyone in the vicinity to dance along to "42nd Street" until they die from exhaustion. Appropriately, Artie uses Busby Berkeley's drinking flask and the original pan from Tin Pan Alley to deactivate the artifact.

* ImColdSoCold: This is the sign of the artifact of season 3's "Insatiable" affecting someone. Other side effects include an insatiable hunger and eventual death from hypothermia.


** By the time season 4 starts, everyone is painfully aware that the usage of artifacts often have dire consequences. One of the first questions Myka asks Artie regarding [=MacPherson=]'s watch is "What's the downside?" Only [[spoiler:Artie]] finds out exactly what it is.



* ManIFeelLikeAWoman: In "Merge With Caution", Pete and Myka are hit by a FreakyFridayFlip, so he takes the opportunity. GenreSavvy Myka immediately calls him on it when they phone each other.
