* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Whenever ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' or ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' were used, Moore would always call Dr. Robotnik "Dr. Robotonik", adding an extra "o" to his name for some reason. Comically enough, taking phonetics into play, it's also how SonicTheFighters misspelled Robotnik as well.

*RumpRoast: A massive fire breathing dragon in the medieval levels somehow manages to sneak up behind Mikey and deliver one of these with his BreathWeapon.

* LosingHorns: The time buzzer in the BonusRound was a series of short descending notes resembling an EvilLaugh.

* GoodBadBugs: At least one winning team benefited from a brief delay between losing their last unit of power and the level resetting by grabbing the final orb during that interval.

Added DiffLines:

* PunnyName: ''Possibly'' in Phil Moore's case; while that ''is'' his real name, one of the games featured surprisingly often on the show was ''VideoGame/{{Actraiser}}'' and the level was usually, you guessed it, Fillmore. The lead-in announcer also did introduce Phil with a pronunciation that sure sounded a decent bit like "Fillmore". It may just be happy coincidence, however.

* GoldenSnitch: The Video Challenges ''could'' have been... [[SubvertedTrope but most teams only ever bet 5 or 10 points]] (a question was worth 25, or 50 in round 2).

* UndesirablePrize: The grand prize was often a trip to Universal Studios in Orlando...where the show was taped. Basically, this meant that if you weren't impressed with the park the first time, you "won" the opportunity to see the same things all over again. [[InvertedTrope On the other hand]], if you enjoyed the park, you got a return trip on Nick's dime.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: The Smooch Aliens of the space stages, a pair of aliens (And not GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe kind) that cover Mikey with smooches whenever he lands on an enemy space.
* AWinnerIsYou: Beat the game wizard, and the message "You did it! You beat the game." flashes on the screen.

** One of the games, played twice during the run, was [[http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_the_Hedgehog_2_(Nick_Arcade_prototype) a very early version]] of ''Sonic the Hedgehog 2'' which used ''Sonic 1''[='s=] Star Light Zone theme for Emerald Hill. The ROM was eventually dumped onto the Internet on November 7, 2006 and was even [[FanNickname dubbed]] the "Nick Arcade prototype." Not so obvious during the show's original run, its appearances caught the attention of the ''Sonic'' fanbase during the repeats on Nick GAS.
