- "Mytharc" episodes were recognized as the "mythology" of the series canon; these episodes comprised the central storyline, which developed from one season to the next, concerning extraterrestrial life on Earth and a long-term conspiracy to hide the extraterrestrial presence and deal with its implications.
- Monster of the Week (MOTW or MoW) came to denote the remainder of the X Files episodes. Episodes of this type, comprising the majority of the series's episodes, dealt with a wide range of paranormal phenomena, including cryptids and mutants; science fiction technologies; horror monsters; and satiric/comedic elements. MOTW were usually standalone episodes, but some of these episodes had indirect ties to the X-Files mythology. A number of "monster of the week" characters became notable and were later referenced by other episodes.
This article is thus a list of characters in the Monster of the Week episodes of the X Files.
For characters that were not monsters of the week, see also: List of The X-Files characters.
Famous quotes containing the word victor:
“The struggle alone pleases us, not the victory. We love to see animals fighting, not the victor raving over the vanquished.... It is the same in gambling, and the same in the search for truth.... We never seek things for themselveswhat we seek is the very seeking of things.”
—Blaise Pascal (16231662)
