* WhamLine: When Ru announced at the start of Season 6 that there would be no immunity this season. That is, winning a challenge one week won't protect a queen from being in the bottom two the next.
** The sting was later taken out of this when [=BenDeLaCreme=] was spared from elimination after a particularly bad week due to her previous successes.

* WhamShot:
** Queens will sometimes attempt to make use of this by initially hiding part of their outfit before suddenly revealing it to (hopefully) shock and impress the judges instantly. Examples include Detox turning around to reveal that her dress didn't cover her butt, and any queen who makes use of a tearaway.
** During a lip sync against Alyssa, Roxxxy infamously pulled off her wig only to reveal she was wearing ''another'' wig underneath it. Both Ru and Michelle were left astounded, and Alaska ended up making fun of this moment in a later challenge.

** Happened again in season 6 with the use of the term "shemale" in the "female or shemale" mini challenge, where the racers had to guess if the extreme close up on screen was a cis woman or a famous drag queen. "Shemale" has also been used on the show playfully in the "You've got She-Mail" intro to mini challenges, and in the wake of this the show and LOGO [[http://www.advocate.com/politics/transgender/2014/04/14/rupauls-drag-race-logo-tv-apologize-transphobic-slur have announced that they will avoid using that term in the future]], removed the episode featuring that challenge and replace the "You've Got She-Mail" challenge intro soundbite.

** Pandora Boxx seems to have found the most success of all, seeing as she's now omnipresent on just about every ''Logo'' show.

** Just like Pandora, Alaska is virtually omnipresent on the Logo website and [=WorldOfWonder=]'s Youtube page. The show even asked her to provide running commentary on Season 4 and 5's ''Untucked'' and two episodes of Season 7.

* ''[[Series/RuPaulsDragU RuPaul's Drag U]]'', a TV series (3 seasons, prior to its cancellation) in which the queens transform cis women into drag queens to give them a confidence boost.

** The premiere episode of season 8 featured the girls doing a photoshoot of past winners. Due to not being able to get Bianca to be a part of the photoshoot they instead had a circus clown in her place. Fast forward to episode 9 during the music video photoshoot. Bianca comes in saying she's there to do the winners photoshoot. Mocked again in the finale, when RuPaul brings back the same clown to join the past winners on stage.

** This trope has also been invoked by other queens in later seasons. It had had gotten so bad that Rupaul had warned the girls not to do and even Santino had look displeased when one queen did it. Subverted by Roxxxy Andrews who was wearing a wig under her wig.

* {{Expy}}: In the "Snatch Game" challenge, some competitors play their chosen celebrities by taking on or mocking one of their characters. In Season 3, Stacy Layne Matthews played Mo'Nique but was channeling the mother from ''Film/{{Precious}}'', in Season 6, [=BenDeLaCreme=] played Maggie Smith, but was more directly channeling the Dowager Countess from ''Series/DowntonAbbey'', and in Season 8, Bob the Drag Queen played Uzo Aduba specifically as her character "Crazy Eyes" from ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' (in addition to a [[RaceLife black Carol Channing]]). Interestingly, all three of these queens won the challenge in their respective seasons.

'''''[=RuPaul=]'s Drag Race''''' is a RealityShow in which a group of talented {{drag queen}}s compete to be crowned as America's Next Drag Superstar. It is hosted by the world's most famous drag queen, Creator/{{RuPaul}}. The amount of queens competing varies by season, but so far the range has been between 9-14 contestants. With each challenge episode, a queen is eliminated, until the GrandFinale where one of the final three competitors is crowned as the next drag superstar. There are currently eight seasons of the show, with a ninth season officially confirmed as of Mar 31, 2016. There are also two Alrl-Star seasons featuring returning queens from previous seasons competing for the similar yet independent prize of being inducted into the 'Drag Hall of Fame'.
