* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: In "Hunger", Frostbite absorbs a lethal amount of radiation while attempting to steal an experimental military device, and while [[PowerIncontinence randomly shifting between her Bio-Mech form and human identity]] decide to quit the Bio-Mechs. Rick Rhodes sees an opportunity to appeal to her better nature and tries to convince her to switch side throughout the episode. While [[StatusQuoIsGod the attempts ultimately fails and Dana Harding reverts into being Frostbite]], the episode ends with Rick satisfied with the thought he possibly planted the seed for a HeelFaceTurn.

Added DiffLines:

* ExpositoryThemeTune: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNXyNC9BhDE full opening]] (which was rarely shown due to commercial breaks and the lengthy Power Block promo at the end incentivizing stations to compress the intro) starts with a narration from Hudson Roarke explaining what the Bio-Mechs are and the Tech's mission to fight them.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverSayDie: Averted in "Hunger" in that the death of Frostbite father's is discussed in definitive terms, but a line in the episode mangles a common idiom in this manner:
---> "''And like they say, the only good Bio-Mech is a long gone Bio-Mech."''
* NotBrainwashed: In "Hunger", it's revealed Frostbite became a Bio-Mech not because she was taken over by TheCorruption but because she fell into a deep depression after the death of her father and desired power beyond human limit.


Added DiffLines:

* SentientVehicle: The Sonic Stinger gets a computer installed into it, giving it a personality and the ability to talk and move independently.
