** He did finish writing the script (or so he claims) on the second time Arino called him, then is asked why it hasn't reached him yet. Kibe's answer? He was looking for a fax machine to send the script through. Of course, not believing in Kibe, Arino asks the crew how he usually sends the script, and they say it's via e-mail. Arino calls Kibe out on using such an excuse and expecting it to work on him. And what is the icing on the cake? The script DOES arrive, [[spoiler:but at the end of the episode, and Arino promptly offers to re-shoot the opening.]]

** The story doesn't end up stopping there. When doing challenges at the Budokan nearly six years, Arino is promised big surprises for each cleared challenge. Upon defeating the first Red Arremer in ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'', Tsuruoka appears on stage and starts singing the song again, this time much improved.

* During the Super Mario Bros 30th Anniversary Special at NicoNico Chokaigi 2015, Arino challenges two Japanese Let's Players to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' levels he made himself. When they sit down, Arino questions them as to why they're both wearing masks, despite the fact they're not actually sick. He adds an additional bet saying if they lost, he could unmask them. He then decides to join them by putting on a mask as well, only to reveal it's a Comic/CaptainAmerica mask.

** When Arino reaches stage five, he gets a special unexpected visitor; the building's window washer! When he attempts to show him the game he's playing, the window washer cracks up, Arino saying "This is you right now!"

* During the Shikoku special, Arino comes across a unique vending machine that has a chance to dispense some really valuable prizes, from consoles to HD cameras. Arino tries it out and is rewarded with what looks like a brand new [=iPhone=]. In reality, it's a gag prize; attempting to turn on the phone gives you an electric shock, much to Arino's amusement when he goads Inoue and Kibe to turn it on. The fact Arino himself was mostly unfazed by it when he tried it only added to the hilarity. Later on during the challenge portion, Arino tries it on a staff member who didn't attend the trip and former AD Toujima, who was visiting the set that day.
** Turns out Kibe is a bit of a germophobe, as a trip to an aquarium turns into a laugh riot for Arino when he tries to get Kibe to join him at the touching pool, who is grossed out at touching a sea urchin and a sea cucumber, with Kibe claiming it looked like something out of ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''.
** On the way to said aquarium, Arino passes by a random group of middle school girls, who squee very loudly upon seeing him.

* In the first attempt at playing the ludicrously hard VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels, Arino makes it past level 8-2's "Triangle Paratrooper Jump" (Where you need to time a jump on a Paratrooper just right such that you hit a block to open a way to the last part of the level (in the form of a vine), needless to say, this took up a fairly large chunk of the challenge) only to miss the last jump, just centimetres away from the end level flag. The pure inhuman scream that Arino emits is hilarious.

* In the ''Super Spy Hunter'' challenge, Arino is struggling near the end of the game, so Takahashi informs him of a code that nets him 20 lives. What he ''doesn't'' tell him is he has to earn them by playing a Pong clone called ''Hyper Tennis''. Beating the computer gives him the 20 lives, failing the minigame ''changes his lives to zero.''

* The ''Quiz Nanairo Dreams'' challenge starts out as "Quiz Game meets VisualNovel/TokimekiMemorial" but eventually turns into "Arino and co. looking at girls in swimsuits".

** Near the start of the game, he comes across a little boy who works with one of the girls, Saki, at the Earth Defense Squad. Arino mocks the boy's runny nose, followed by his game character doing the same thing. Arino claims he and Capcom (the developers) have the same sense of humor. The fact that it happens twice while meeting the same boy makes it even more hilarious.

** During the challenge proper, he discovers a pair of joysticks that come with the game after he complains about his thumbs hurting due to the weird control scheme (using the d-pads of both controllers for each arm). He initially does well with them, but they come off rather easily, causing him to abandon them.
*** Much later, he decides to try them again, this time taping the controllers to the table so the peripherals stay in place. He manages to do much better, but once he reaches the mandatory bonus stage, he ''[[EpicFail can't remove the controllers from the table]]'' due to the bonus stage changing the control scheme to that of a standard platformer. This forces Arino to play the bonus stage at an awkward angle, causing him to get a game over.

* In the VideoGame/PunchOut episode, AD Emoto offers to fight Soda Popinski, with Arino serving as his "second". Every time Mac gets knocked down, Arino throws in the towel. Emoyan ultimately loses by TKO, and just to further rub it in, [[EvilLaugh Arino laughs like Popinski.]]

* During the arcade trip in the ''Crazy Climber'' challenge, Arino and co visit a cafe with tabletop arcade machines as tables. Unfortunately, only one of them is turned on, ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}''. When Arino finishes playing, he's told that they don't have enough footage for the segment. Hoping to [[{{Padding}} pad for time]], he has Kibe play a round, and even then, ''they still don't have enough footage.''
