* AllMythsAreTrue: Albeit aliens were involved with all of them. Yes, ''all'' of them--an episode involving the {{Crystal Skull}}s (which have been thoroughly debunked) explored the idea of them having mystical science powers or alien knowledge encoded in them, and somehow managed to link them to the Nazis, {{Atlantis}}, the Dali Lama, and Native American mythos. That's just how absurd the show can be when it tries. A 2014 commercial for the series even directly states "Aliens were part of everything. Now you know."
** They will occasionally admit that mainstream (read: real) archaeologists have an answer for the "mystery," or that some of the claims have been proved hoaxes ({{crystal skull}}s, }}crop circles}}). It's usually followed immediately with something like "But ancient astronaut theorists have a different, more profound, explanation."

* BlatantLies: The ''entire'' show. All the lies and deception are picked apart by ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9w-i5oZqaQ Ancient Aliens Debunked]]''. Notable is presenting 19th and 20th century New Age texts as ancient texts, deliberate mistranslations, deliberately presenting false dates, not citing actual sources, quote mining, cherry picking data, and presenting hoaxes as true (such as the infamous Crystal Skulls). All and all, the show is one big ''lie'' that is getting far, far too much attention.

Added DiffLines:

** They also seem to believe there is no such thing as true genius. As mentioned above, anyone who had radical ideas (Leonardo, Einstein, von Braun) must have been influenced by aliens. They never seem to consider the possibility that these people were visionaries who benefited mankind with their own brainpower.

* CargoCult: All religions are this, in their minds. They've even specifically mentioned this trope in their explanations.

* CreativeSterility: The hosts of the show basically assume that ancient man had no imagination. All myths, legends, etc, were attempts by our ancestors to accurately record things they saw and experienced first-hand. They just didn't have the technological sophistication to realize they were seeing aliens and machines, not gods and magic.

** The commentators, especially Philip Coppens, likes to suggest the possibility that aliens may have been behind something, then in the next sentence, pretend like the possibility is itself proof of their claims.
