* When Pole-Axe is played, the contestant and Gladiator are instructed to "mount the poles" during the setup before the event starts. When this was played for the first time in the International series and the command was given, the commentator mentions that [[DoubleEntendre the phrase would need to be changed if Poland were to compete in the next series]].

* During the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noFVI2Z_uMc#t=14m00s 1994 Armed Forces special]], Cobra managed to bring down an RAF contender in Pyramid...[[TrashTheSet as well as the top of the Pyramid itself!]] Obviously, this forced John Anderson to stop the event for repairs.

* Before the first men's Powerball of Series 3, both Gladstone [=McKenzie=](an American footballer) and Dean Pollen (a former rugby player) [[Main/BattleChant perform a haka in front of the Gladiators]], who aren't too impressed. After the haka, John Anderson asked "Contenders, are you ''now'' ready?" in a slightly annoyed tone.

Added DiffLines:

* The "Celebrities vs. Jockeys" special ([[AuthorExistenceFailure Which, sadly, isn't seen on the air anymore due to circumstances surrounding the death of celebrity contender Mark Speight]]) has a few of them, most notably jockey Willie Carson (Little Contender, READY!) blatantly cheating on the Hit & Run event (mainly by crawling on the suspension bridge). John Anderson then promptly disqualified the jockey, while hiding behind Cobra and Hunter, who then carried him offstage when he tried to attack the ref.

Added DiffLines:

* During the Series 4 Grand Final (the same series as the above Yellow Card), Wolf earned another Yellow Card for shoving eventual champion Mark Everitt after he made it to the top of the Pyramid (though Wolf said in a subsequent interview that Mark shoved HIM first), and while arguing with John Anderson about it, actually grabbed the Yellow Card and ate it. Does the ref send him off after that? Nope. He just shrugs as if to say, "Why bother, he never listens anyway."
