* [[UndesirablePrize Undesirable prizes]]: ...can easily be sacrificed for more time by letting them drop. Of course, the fancier and more expensive prizes are closer to the front of the line, so if you want to win them you pretty much have no choice but to play the game quick...and play it well.
* WhoWantsToBeWhoWantsToBeAMillionaire: Money ladder...check. $1,000,000 top prize...check. Lifelines...check. Crazy aerial camera shots...check. Caffeinated women from the ''Series/DealOrNoDeal'' contestant pool...check. (Naturally) Dark set with lots of [=LED=] mood lighting...check.

Now, as you know, Downfall [[Series/{{TheJokersWild}} is a game of definitions]]; the contestant picked a category off a board, and had to correctly answer a certain number of clues from it. While the belt also contained nice bonus prizes, the box of money at the end of the line had to survive in order to move on to the next round, and the belt sped up for each question passed.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Downfall's format had shades of ''Series/TheJokersWild'''s infamous 1990's revival, which diverged from the franchise's traditional Q&A format by requiring contestants to provide the answers to clues from a category. However, while it did have a giant slot machine, it didn't have a giant conveyor belt.

* NoAnimalsWereHarmed: The prizes on the belt were represented by stand-ins, and the show took liberties a [[UnfortunateImplications Ford Focus]] stood in for a Ford Escape, and non-tangible prizes had an object representing them (like, a giant disco ball to represent dance lessons)

Added DiffLines:

* EjectTheLoser: If you lost, ''you'' were sent over the edge on the belt (while your fall was controlled by a cable, of course.)

GameShow hosted by wrestler Wrestling/ChrisJericho on ABC for a single season in 2010 as the ''[[{{Series/Wipeout2008}} Wipeout]]'' lead-out, whose main draw is that the contestant tries to save a series of prizes from going over the edge of a rather tall building on a ConveyorBeltODoom.

While Jericho hinted on Twitter that more episodes were going to be filmed in the fall, this never happened. The show got canned, and said cans got sent over the same rooftop. It got replaced the following summer by ''OneHundredAndOneWaysToLeaveAGameShow''.
