* AstonishinglyAppropriateInterruption: In a Celebrity edition with Steve Harvey as the host, Music/SnoopDogg gives a particularly bad answer to a question ("Fill in the blank: Pie in the [what?]" "Horse."); Harvey had no idea what Snoop said, so when he reads back the answers, he says, "Fill in the blank: Pie in the what the hell did you say??"

** During one season of the Combs-era Feud, when a contestant gave a wrong answer, Ray would give the contestant a hand-held sign with a red "X" strike symbol, which they would hold up for the rest of the question. This was later abandoned after a couple of months.

* UnexpectedlyObscureAnswer: Some of the 2-point entries in questions that are almost certainly played to foil a clean sweep.
** "Name something you've never had, but you know you want" (to 100 men): "A guitar" and "truffles" were #6 and #7 out of 8.

sweep. For instance, "Name something you've never had, but you know you want" (to 100 men): "A guitar" and "truffles" were #6 and #7 out of 8.8.
* TwoDecadesBehind: By the final year of the Dawson era, the big board's answer-flipping mechanics and Ferranti-Packard Fast Money display paled in comparison to the computerized game boards used on ''Series/TicTacDough'' and the then-new ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' The board was retained for the Combs era and gradually had its mechanism tightened up over the course of that version's run, making it run smoother and less clunky (although the Ferranti-Packard glitched out frequently, likely because it had been in storage for three years). When Dawson returned, the show did away with the flip-card board and used the Fast Money board for the entire game, but (inconsistently) overlaid a computerized version of the mechanical board onto it in post-production. The current run continues to use a computerized board, but on a large video wall instead of a CGI overlay.



** If a contestant gives a very stupid answer, some hosts[[note]]in other words, everyone except Karn, though even he had his moments[[/note]] have been known to either call them out for it, or give them a "prize". Before Steve Harvey took over, Richard Dawson was the undisputed ''king'' of this.

* BitingTheHandHumor: "Name a TV show you'd be embarrassed to see any of your family members on." The #4 answer, and the first guess, was ''Family Feud''.

* HotterAndSexier: A trend since the Ray Combs era shows more innuendo in the questions and answers. The Steve Harvey version plays this straight and turns it UpToEleven.
** A big part of this seems to be that they stopped censoring the answers and the dirty answers to otherwise innocuous questions are getting onto the show.

** ''Celebrity Family Feud'', patterned after the 1976-85 version's frequent nighttime celebrity specials, aired in Summer 2008 with Al Roker as host. The first answer ever to be given in this series had to be censored (a testament to how Roker was as a host: he nicknamed the offending answer "Captain Winky"). This, coupled with the fact that the visiting cast of ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'' seemed to be intentionally-stupid with their answers and not care about the $50,000 jackpot, equaled a definite {{Cancellation}}. [[note]]Bizarrely, the ''My Name Is Earl'' team was the '''characters''', who were appearing on the show against the '''cast''' of other shows. Huh?[[/note]]Steve Harvey would also host a series of primetime Celebrity episodes in 2015 that were better received, and in fact spawned a mini-comeback of primetime game shows for the summer of 2016.

The show spawned a popular British version as well, renamed ''Series/FamilyFortunes''. Hosted by Bob Monkhouse (1980-83), Max Bygraves (1983-85), Les Dennis (1987-2002) Andy Collins (2002) and Vernon Kay (2006-present). There has also been an Australian version, with several hosts from 1977-1996, then hosted by Bert Newton for the 2006-7 version and Grant Denyer from 2014 onwards. It also inspired a Mexican version named "100 mexicanos dijeron". (A 100 Mexicans Said)

Said). There's a successful Russian version as well, called "Сто к одному" (literally "100 by 1"), first aired in 1995 and still being produced. The main difference is that teams don't have to be families, often they're made of friends, coworkers or there are two music bands competing. Studio designs have been upgraded a few times, but the host (Alexander Gurevich) has never changed since the first game.

* OnTheMoney: One family got 100 points in Fast Money, so the second person only had to get 100 to win. The second person got... 100 points.
