* InterserviceRivalry[=/=]YanksWithTanks: Invoked in the 'Military Grill Battle', with each of three Iron Chef assigned a sous-chef from a different branch: Morimoto and a Marine, Symon and an Army cook, and Cora and a Navy Culinary Specialist[[note]]For the reason he's called a "culinary specialist", see YanksWithTanks.[[/note]] The ingredient is 'ahi tuna, which is fitting given that it takes place at a Marine base in Hawaii.

* BaconAddiction: So far, three battles, one in the original series, one in ICA as a standalone ingredient, and one in ICA as part of a 'breakfast' theme. The record stands at one win (Flay defeated Marc Murphy), one loss (Phillipe Batton defeated Sakai) and one draw (Susur Lee fought Flay to a tie in the breakfast battle).

Added DiffLines:

* {{Mondegreen}}: During the actual competition, whenever Shinichiro Ota reports back to Kenji Fukui, he always shouts "FUKUI-SAN!". He says it really fast so it sounds like he's saying "SQUEEZE-ON!" or "KWEEZON!" to a comical degree.

There are four other spinoffs, an Israeli version (''Krav Sakinim'', literally, "[[BadassIsraeli Knife Fight]]"), a UK version (''Iron Chef UK''), an Australian version (''Iron Chef Australia''),[[note]]It even flew in Mark Dacasos to chair! Which makes it easier to add to the greater {{Kayfabe}} of ''Iron Chef America''[[/note]] ''Iron Chef Thailand'', and most recently, ''Iron Chef Vietnam''.

* {{BFS}}: Or about as close as a kitchen knife can get to becoming one anyway. Wielded by Takashi Mera in 'Battle Tuna' against Iron Chef Michiba. The blade was long enough to be comparable to a samurai's short sword... naturally lampshaded throughout the entire battle.

Hence the basic concept for ''Ryouri no Tetsujin'' ("Ironmen of Cooking"), better known as ''Iron Chef''. The classic format is this: The presenters of the program offer a theme ingredient; the challenger and the Iron Chef he has chosen to oppose are given one hour to create a full meal -- between three and five courses, usually, ''all'' of which have to use the theme ingredient in some way. A panel of tasters judges and rates the dishes served, and the points they give are tallied up at the end to decide "whose cuisine reigns supreme."
