** A few times, in order to ''really'' prevent people from trying this stuff at home, they just plain don't show the really dangerous stuff. In the Flamethrower vs Fire Extinguisher myth, we aren't shown how Jamie built his homemade flame thrower (except for a few shots of his silhouette behind a curtain as he pounds a hammer on a table--which probably wasn't even part of the actual process of building the thing).
*** It wasn't, as he was seen using [[RuleOfFunny two hammers in the same hand backwards, as well as just beating the table with a pipe]]. It was mentioned that they did this because not only was making and using the flamethrower highly dangerous, but also highly ''illegal'', and that among the conditions of them getting permission from numerous state, local and Federal agencies to even attempt it was that they couldn't film any part of the building process that could even hint at how to assemble the device. The only actual parts shown were the drilling of a block for the manifold and the selection of the fuel tanks.

* StereotypeFlip: Played with when tackling stories inspired by events occurring along the Mexican border with the United States; they typically would transplant the circumstances of the myth to the Canadian border in order to remain culturally sensitive. Most obvious with the "Border Slingshot" and "Driving in the Dark" myths.

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: One might imagine that they are HeterosexualLifePartners, but both Adam and Jamie have said that they don't like each other and don't spend any time together outside of work. On occasion, especially in the early episodes, this comes through onscreen. In the 10/19/2011 episode (Exuberent Excavators) Adam came flat out and said "We work together well but we don't like each other." In [[http://www.businessinsider.com/mythbusters-co-hosts-no-more-2016-3 a clip]] filmed in 2016, he mentioned that he and Jame "drive each other batty" and that they wouldn't be collaborating on any more projects.
