* TeethClenchedTeamwork: He and Jamie have made it clear that they have a good deal of respect for each other but on an interpersonal level they annoy each other to no end and do not hang out after work. Occasionally, this makes it past the editing and we see Adam annoyed at Jamie's fussiness and methodical approach. With that said, their mutual joy at what they are doing is often apparent as well, and if Jamie is upset or frightened (such as when they test myths involving extreme heights, which Jamie hates), he does show a fair amount of concern for his co-host.

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: He and Jamie have made it clear that they have a good deal of respect for each other but on an interpersonal level they annoy each other to no end and do not hang out after work. Adam is fond of noting that they've known each other profesionally for over twenty years, but have never had dinner together.

* KilledOffForReal: In the Grand Finale, he was dressed as a superhero, attached to a rocked sled, and sent into a concrete wall at almost 800 mph, whereupon he promptly disappears in a small flash of light. The reunion show has Adam giving small glass cubes with that largest pieces to Grant, Tory, and Kari as keepsakes.

* DudeNotFunny: Adam enjoys a prank as much as the next person, and probably dishes out more than anyone else on the show by far. But when the build team shocked him with a ''real'' electrical current during the "Ark of the Covenant" myth, he did '''NOT''' take it well.

* CompanionCube: When he takes more serious damage than they planned, TheTeam tends to react as if a real person had been injured.

* CompanionCube: When he takes more serious damage than they planned, TheTeam tends to react as if a real person had been injured. Somewhat justified, as Buster is meant to look and react more or less the same as a real human, so when the team sees something bad happen to Buster, they're imagining what it would be like for a ''person'' to go through it.

** Lampshaded in the ''StarWars'' special, where he first teased Adam about his tendency to dress up, then willingly donned a Luke Skywalker costume for the Death Star swing escape.
