That is always a possibility.... I've heard & read many stories of people having Clown Triggers for years with no issues, and all of a sudden they decide to turn on everything in the tank..... even panther groupers twice their size, and completely tear them up.

I've always thought the Picasso trigger was a beautiful fish.... While still considered "aggressive", it will have a much better temperament in a community predator tank

Niger's a good fish, but will need more room than your 120. Think of them as one of the tangs of the trigger world, they need lots of open swimming room. I think min recommended tank is 180.

The good news about the lion fish is that they don't move around much. Everything else you mentioned are speed demons on the reef and have large territories. My lion lived in a 55 for years very comfortably. But the triggers and tangs need a lot of room and hiding holes.
