*** A behind-the-scenes special reveals that one attempt to frighten a skunk was Jamie spinning in circles while holding the cage by the handle. Adam thinks he can maximize the scariness by coming out of left field and hollering in the skunk's face. ''While Jamie's still spinning the cage!'' Needless to say, Jamie hits Adam in the face, but, like any self-inflicted injury, Adam just shakes it off.

* When testing the RPG (Rocket-Propelled Grenade) vs. Handgun myth from the movie RED, the Build Team test-fires an RPG at a flimsy old trailer "Just to see what it does." The resulting high-speed shot is one of the funniest, and most awesome, in the show's history. The RPG leaves a [[ImpactSilhouette perfectly round hole, with four vertical lines coming off it from the RPG's stabilizing fins.]] Then the whole trailer vanishes in an epic explosion.

*** In that same myth, we find out that beer + liqueur = Tory-ain't-hungover. Grant was ''seriously'' peeved; Kari just thought it was hysterical.

* The [=MythBusters=] also have a habit of overkill. The example that comes immediately to mind is shooting a fish in a barrel...''[[GatlingGood with a gatling gun]]''. Because any confirmation involving guns needs MoreDakka.

** Funny out of context, funnier in context: Prior to the first test of rear axle, Adam gives his estimate percentage chance of what might happen, giving complete and utter failure a 10% chance. After the test goes completely belly-up, Adam returns and claims he gave the result a 30% chance of happening. He's immediately corrected, but insists that he he gave "50-40-10" as his percentages ([[WritersCannotDoMath even though one will immediately notice that getting 30% out of that is impossible]]). After the flashback to his actual estimates, Adam delivers the line.

"cable remains intact and rips off the axle as per the myth" 10%. After the test goes completely belly-up, option B happens, Adam returns and claims he gave the result a 30% chance of happening. He's immediately corrected, corrected by a crew member, complete with flashback, but then insists that he that was someone else and he gave "50-40-10" as his percentages ([[WritersCannotDoMath even though one will immediately notice that getting 30% out of that is impossible]]). After the another flashback to his actual estimates, Adam delivers the line.

* During the Catching a Sword myth from the ninja special, Kari, Tory, and Grant are doing some force-testing. Then, all of a sudden, Adam comes running in out of nowhere, shouts "YOUR KUNG FU IS NO GOOD!" and smacks Tory in the face.

* During The test in which the Catching Build Team determined the swinging speed of a Sword swordsman for the "Catching a Sword" myth from in the first ninja special, Kari, Tory, and Grant are doing some force-testing. Then, all special is a '''''goldmine''''' of these:
** They stick
a sudden, nametag that says "[[JustForFun/{{Hello}} hello]] my name is ninja" on the ballstic bust being used for the test, just for kicks.
** Kari is explaining the test procedure to the boys when "Master Savage" ambushes them. Funny:
Adam comes running shouting "Your kung fu is no good!" in out of nowhere, shouts "YOUR KUNG FU IS NO GOOD!" his HongKongDub voice and smacks smacking Tory in the face.face. Funnier: A bemused Tory completely no-selling Adam prior to that point.
** Adam channels Ballistic Ninja after Tory takes the first swing:
--->'''Adam:''' "Master! He hit me in the ''head''! You teach him a lesson!"
** Grant preps for his turn by crouching with the sword in his hands. Tory ''and'' the Narrator both take the opportunity to riff on him. (Which [[TranquilFury ends up working well]], since Grant ultimately sets the benchmark with his effort.)

*** Adam repeated this experience during a visit to ''Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert'' in the buildup to the series finale, with Stephen being the one to pull the trigger this time. It's just as funny 13 years later.
