* {{Badass}}: Josh Gates, Unlike most of the guys who run away, any man that willingly charges at a Sasquatch, is either Brave or Stupid... or both.
** Two great examples of Josh being badass: he meets the challenge of a wide, freezing, and turbulent river by leaping in and swimming across, and when in Panama, he's able to out-maneuver the rest of the team and get into so many weird spots when they aren't looking that none of them can figure out how he's doing it.

* CrossOver: Grant, Jason, Steve, and Tango of ''Series/GhostHunters'' often appear to analyze evidence that Josh and crew have gathered from their ghost investigations. This has proved controversial with ''Destination Truth'' fans who prefer the show not associate with them. Josh himself has appeared on GhostHunters.

* ExecutiveMeddling: It's doubtful that the many appearances by members of GhostHunters and ''Ghost Hunters International'' are Josh's idea. Or the numerous other Creator/{{Syfy}} personalities who show up as guest investigators to plug their own show.

** The first time they go there, as they're approaching for landing and pass over the forest, ''the roof of the aircraft's cabin tears off in flight'', causing real concern that the wings might have been damaged also, forcing an emergency landing. Then, while doing solo EVP sessions in the central clearing, one of the crew get's physically ''flung like a rag doll'' over 20-30 feet, '''''on multiple cameras''''' by ''something'' that's never seen on camera. At speed that's not possible for any human being to have thrown him, literally sitting on the camp chair one second recording, then in the next frame of the perimeter camera looking at him, the blur of him being flung upward and to the side is seen, then he's gone from the camera's view. On the crew member's Harness cam (which is facing towards his face), he's shown screaming and flailing in terror as he's thrown, clearly at a high speed from what can be seen. When Josh and the rest of the team rush to find and help him, they find him unconscious/dazed, with signs of something having grabbed him. When he comes to, he can't remember what happened. They then find out that cuts like claw marks have somehow appeared ''under'' his sleeves. Then, to top it off, the medic helping him out suddenly gets sick and throws up. They shut down the investigation right there and then for safety.

** This is a genre slip from its earlier run where Josh would only rarely investigate anything to do with ghosts simply because as he put it, it was better off left to the guys on GhostHunters. That said, in following seasons, his investigations have slid to a pretty much even ratio of haunting/cryptid per episode.

* TheAllegedCar: A RunningGag on the show is that every car they get is a rough collection of spare parts held together by little more than hope. In Indonesia, the car caught on fire.
** With variants: the alleged plane, the alleged helicopter, the alleged ''tank''... See RunningGag, above.

use an old Soviet transport vehicle, which works pretty well (until it overheats).

* DrivesLikeCrazy: Kind of inevitable when among the many {{Alleged Car}}s are essentially tanks or when they had a truck with a tiki hut on the back for some reason. And then there's the time they were driving in Italy and everything up to and including nuns were among the obstacles.

** The first time they go there, as they approach for landing at the nearby town in a prop plane, the engines fail as they pass over the forest. Then, while doing solo EVP sessions in the central clearing, one of the crew get's physically ''flung like a rag doll'' over 20-30 feet, '''''on multiple cameras''''' by ''something'' that's never seen on camera.

They shut down the investigation right there and then for safety.
** When they revisit the location a second time, this time, as they're approaching for landing and pass over the forest, ''the roof of the aircraft's cabin tears off in flight'', causing real concern that the wings might have been damaged also, forcing an emergency landing. They bring back the crew member who was previously attacked before to help him find some answers for himself. And again, while in the clearing, things start happening again, and the crew member has signs of bleeding from his ears, again, forcing the crew to back off for safety.
