* NintendoHard: The series generally only produced one, maybe two winners per series. The difficulty reached its zenith in Series 3, where ''any mistake at all'' in Levels 2 and 3 would get the dungeoneer killed in the next chamber or two. Series 1 also didn't have any winners, though that was more due to it being much shorter than any other series of the show, and likely due to contestants simply not knowing what to expect on the show.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: It's been all but confirmed that in series 2, one of the teams actually failed to answer even one of the wall monster's questions, which should have meant that the dungeoneer got eaten. However, due to technical limitations not allowing them to depict a dungeoneer actually being eaten, and there not being another team to take their place, they ended up having to refilm the entire quest and work in a "Truth" spell that allowed the team to bypass the wall monster. They still died two rooms later, however (by which point the next team had presumably arrived).

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The sorceress Maldame has a tendency to make speeches espousing views associated with MargaretThatcher. Just in case anyone didn't get the hint, her in-universe nickname is "The Iron Maiden".

* BigBad: Lord Fear in later series, Mogdred to a lesser extreme in earlier ones.

to:

* BigBad: BigBad:
** Mogdred was the nearest thing to a main villain in Series 1--4. While he certainly had the highest profile of the villains, he generally didn't have many goals other than tricking the dungeoneers into messing up, and maybe outright killing them if the mood so took him. On top of that, he didn't appear in Series 1 at all (though was mentioned a few times), was largely OutOfFocus in Series 3 with Morghanna acting more as the primary villain, and then he formed one half of a BigBadDuumvirate with Malice in Series 4.
**
Lord Fear in later series, Mogdred Series 5--8 was a much more straightforward example of this trope, as the undisputed leader of the Opposition and having the express goal to a lesser extreme in earlier ones.destroy Castle Knightmare from Series 6 onwards.

* ArtEvolution: For the first three series, the dungeon rooms were hand-drawn pictures. From series 4, stills of [[CaliforniaDoubling real-life locations]] such as [[http://www.hedinghamcastle.co.uk/ Hedingham Castle]] were used, making it possible to film the Eye Shield cutscenes on location. In series 7, the third level of the dungeon was completely CGI, and in series 8 this was used throughout.
