** In ICA, Chairman Mark was missing from several episodes in the most recent season, only showing up in pre-taped video to announce the theme ingredient. In each of the episodes they gave a different excuse. In reality, the actor playing him was on DancingWithTheStars at the time.

* ShortRunners: The Australian version -- just six episodes in 2010 with the advertising attention given to the show slowly decreasing throughout, then the show was quietly swept under the SevenNetwork's rug of ShortRunners and never heard from again.

** The original show strictly speciated its cast, always maintaining chefs that specialized in French, Japanese, and Chinese cuisine (later adding one for Italian). ** The American version isn't quite as strict, having both Cat Cora and Michael Symon representing Mediterranean cuisine, but even then, their own personalities and approaches are very different.

** The season two finale between Jose Garces (technician) and Jehangir Mehta (performer) had the judges {{DiscussedTrope discussing this trope}}. While discussing Mehta's amateur mistake, Iron Chef Michael Symon stated that "You can't be creative without having the fundamentals down." As with the previous two examples, the technician won.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Tadamichi Ohta, in his appearance as a challenger several years before becoming the leader of the Ohta Faction. While his high rank and skill level as a chef was clearly put on display (he was one of few challengers to sweep an Iron Chef), his purity in regards to Japanese ingredients isn't apparent from his use of foie gras, caviar, and mayonnaise during 'Battle Octopus'.

** In terms of pure visual appeal, the dishes on the 2000th/2001st Dishes Battle on the original ''ICJ'' have to take the cake (although we must state there was no actual cake involved). The All French team produced a truly magnificent multilevel platter surrounded with side dishes in the style of UsefulNotes/LouisXIV, while the All Chinese team made a ''really'' pretty food landscape featuring a mythical Chinese mountain (actually their pork loin salt crust grill) covered in greenery guarded by two turtles carved from melons (which served as bowls for Chen Kenichi and Sozo Miyamoto's stir-fried dishes), surrounded by their other side dishes and topped with a dragon made from a fried eel.

As part of the presentation, the team then poured fine ''[[GargleBlaster baijiu]]'' over the salt crust and [[IncendiaryExponent lit it on fire]].

** Another victim of this is Hiromi Nagasaku, who had a culinary degree during her guest appearances on the show (something pointed out by Fukui and the other guest judges on each of her appearances), but is otherwise treated as just another ditzy female celebrity by the dub.
