** In a case of "I Drank What?", a Depression-era couple from West Virginia try to get in on the liquor business (as Prohibition made bootlegging alcohol a booming business) by making their own to sell to city folk. While sampling the "foreshot" (the toxic-byproduct-heavy initial runoff), they ingest methanol, which causes them to go blind, then shuts down their organs.

** "Drunk Die-er": The drunk driver who was still alive and had to not only watch his organs being harvested before they took out his heart, but ''feel'' every second of it.
** "De-Coffinated": The Haitian man who was paralyzed by his brother through a witch doctor's toxic dust and buried alive.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Just about all of the deaths were filmed in Los Angeles, Calfiornia, even those that were set somewhere else.



*** And this one's entirely true. This particular death is a reenactment of what happened to Aloha Airlines Flight 243 in 1988. Literally the only thing they changed was the stewardess being a jerkass.



* SeriesFauxnale: "Sor-Dead Affair" was intended to be the final episode on the series, as the last segment in the episode is Way to Die #1000 "Premature Endings", which features an old man who dies in a hospital bed of natural causes next to his adult daughter, after living a long, fulfilling life and always supporting his loved ones. The narrator goes on and talks how the viewer should not act recklessly like the rest of the idiots on the show who got killed, and instead watch the show from their homes and try to die peacefully like the old man.
** Unfortunately, this episode was aired as the penultimate episode, and then the show got renewed for another season.






* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many fans have this opinion over the changing Narrators



* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: Most of the deaths that actually did happen tend to be recreated in very exaggerated and prurient ways, often because the victims of the actual deaths were children (i.e., the Mel Gibson-esque movie star who got his internal organs sucked out of his anus when he sat on a hot tub drain while forcing his girlfriend into giving him oral sex happened to a six-year-old girl named Abigail Taylor, but for ethical, moral, and legal reasons, they made it happen to a JerkAss adult who deserved to be punished). Just goes to show you that EvenEvilHasStandards.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: Most of the deaths that actually did happen tend to be recreated in very exaggerated and prurient ways, often because the victims of the actual deaths were children completely innocent (i.e., the Mel Gibson-esque movie star who got his internal organs sucked out of his anus when he sat on a hot tub drain while forcing his girlfriend into giving him oral sex happened to a six-year-old girl named Abigail Taylor, but for ethical, moral, and legal reasons, they made it happen to a JerkAss adult who deserved to be punished). Just goes to show you that EvenEvilHasStandards.



* YouLookFamiliar: Some of the characters have been played by the same actor, such as
** The jealous ex-boyfriend who used a trash can as a toilet and died rolling downhill in "Sh** Canned" and the CEO in "Sumowed."
** The Peeping Tom landlord who got his skull crushed in while spying on a woman bathing in "Blood Bath & Beyond" and the FatBastard who died of excess MSG from a steady diet of Chinese buffet food in "All He Could Eat."
** Fernando in "Anger Damagement" and the Fijian chief in "Reef Stew."
** The con artist in "Squeeze Play" and the fat man who dies of appendicitis in "Fat Man in a Little Swing."
** The dwarf who plays Cary Grant's role in "North by Northwasted" and the planking-obsessed dwarf in "Waste Dead."
** There's also a case of "You Sound Familiar": the song performed by that washed-up boy band in "Boyz 2 Dead" is also the song that the underwear-clad girl being spied on by the Peeping Tom landlord sang in "Blood, Bath, and Beyond." With both of these being aired in the same episode, no less.
** The screeching MyBelovedSmother who dies when the refrigerator falls on her in "Smother in Law" also plays the vain stripper with unhumanly-huge GagBoobs who asphixiates when she accidentally gives herself MarshmallowHell in "Boobie-cide"

** The BruceLee wannabe who wanted to make a viral video to get a real woman and not have to settle for the blow-up doll he had in his garage. Winds up breaking his skull by trying to crush boards and concrete with his head, then smacking himself in the face with nunchucks.
