* HeadScratchers: Some seemingly easy targets of the roastee gets omitted from (at least the aired version) from the barbs. Whether it's expressly forbidden as per above or just an oversight on the roasters/edited out, it's probably confusing to the audience why certain topics weren't hit.
** Denis Leary, for instance, is somewhat infamous in the comedy world for supposedly lifting his act from Creator/BillHicks. This was alluded to merely one whole time on the broadcast (so seemingly not a forbidden subject).
** William Shatner's infamous alleged toupee also seemed to get off lightly...other than Creator/GeorgeTakei's epic closer (which may have been why, the other roasters laid off to allow George the spotlight).

---> '''Creator/SethMacFarlane:''' Tonight we honour a self-made millionaire. He started with nothing, worked hard and made a fortune. That man is Fred Trump, Donald (Trump's) dad."

* EpicFail: [[Series/JerseyShore Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino]] notoriously crashed and burned at the Trump Roast, and was almost booed off the stage (Jeff Ross actually had to go up and defend him long enough for him to finish.)

* WithFriendsLikeThese: The reason the roastee never gets offended by the hilariously awful statements is usually a combination of having a good sense of humor, knowing what to expect, and most of all, being good friends with the roasters and being able to make a few jokes at each other.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en9LDlQnkBs The Roast of HBO]]... which lasts for the first three jokes. After that it quickly becomes everyone roasting everyone else.

** Mike Tyson got in a killer dig by stating he got through a tough time in his life by reading "The Iliad." He then looked at Seth [=MacFarlane=] and said "You're not the only one to get by taking ideas from Homer." Everyone on the dais lost it, especially [=MacFarlane=].

** Not just that. Andy acted pissy over every single joke at his expense during the PamelaAnderson roast....except when Sarah Silverman performed.

** In fact, one can argue that the entire roast for Creator/JamesFranco would be one compared to most roasts, considering the verbal abuse/banter thrown around is very much self-aware, good-natured and done amongst real friends and non-strangers.

** Notably, Norm [=MacDonald=] fell squarely into this during Creator/BobSaget's roast, typically pairing it with DontExplainTheJoke. While the audience took a few of these to start laughing, the other roasters were ''dying''.

** Notably, Norm [=MacDonald=] fell squarely into this during Creator/BobSaget's roast, typically pairing it with DontExplainTheJoke. While the audience took a few of these to start laughing, the other roasters were ''dying''.[[note]]The producer asked Norm to "be shocking", but he decided that he couldn't do convincing roast-style jokes about someone he actually liked, so the most shocking thing he could do would be to do lame jokes. He took all his material from a 50s joke book his dad had given him when he was a kid, consisting of jokes to tell at retirement parties.[[/note]]
--->'''Norm [=MacDonald=]''': Cloris Leachman is here. Cloris, if people tell you you're over the hill, don't believe 'em. Why, you'll never be over the hill, not in the car you drive. [...] But now we come to Bob Saget, that's why we're all here. Bob, you have a lot of well-wishers here tonight, and a lot of them would like to throw you down one. A well. They want to murder you in a well. Seems a little harsh, but...apparently they want to murder you in a well, but...it says here, on this card.
