The XMM Cluster Survey has developed pipelines for image processing and spectral analysis that have X-ray astronomy applications beyond clusters of galaxies. In this talk I review our work related to searches for X-ray flashes, to constraining the strength of dark matter annihilation emission lines, and to the proposed correlation between X-ray variability and black hole mass.
