Common themes include:

It should be noted that some key mythology characters also appear in Monster of the Week episodes; notably, Deep Throat, X and the Cigarette Smoking Man each appear in episodes which involve government activities. Furthermore, as his role expanded, Walter Skinner appears in more Monster of the Week episodes.
