* OutOfOrder: Not always the most obvious, usually manifesting itself in minute set changes that seem to disappear and reappear, sometimes within the week. This also can result in the host making reference to a past event as if it were upcoming, or vice versa (e.g., saying that a contestant is the first to play a new pricing game when, due to another episode being moved, they are actually the second). And in 2003 and 2010's announcer searches, it led to the substitute announcer post frequently changing mid-week.

* IdiosyncraticWipes: Several pricing games have wipes themed to the game's motif (e.g., a hexagonal wipe for Spelling Bee, an octagonal one for Danger Price, one with dice for Dice Game, a giant 3D Plinko board to introduce, the "Yodelly Guy" climbing up his track as it wipes for Cliffhangers, an in-studio version with a dozen or so motifs that lifts up to reveal large stage sets [Race Game, Showcase Showdown] ... what else, etc.).

* PrettyInMink: Fur coats were often prizes until Bob Barker joined PETA. The last known appearance of one is in September 1981. Dennis James must've had an affinity for fur coats since there's only '''five''' episodes out of the 301 he hosted in the nighttime run that ''don't'' contain at least one fur coat, which is why his run hasn't seen the light of day of day since 1977.

** Big Money Week, and ''how''. One game each day is played with its prize cranked UpToEleven, such as Punch-A-Bunch ($250,000 top prize), 3 Strikes (for a [[CoolCar Ferrari]] with [[NintendoHard six digits in its price]]), Grand Game (all prizes multiplied by 10, top prize $100,000), Cliff Hangers ($250,000 top prize; $10,000 is deducted for every step the mountain climber travels), and Plinko (with a $100,000 center slot, and later on a '''$200,000''' center slot). In 2016, games also offered bonus objectives for additional cash prizes (such as winning Range Game within a smaller margin also marked on the rangefinder, and hitting 45 on a bonus spin in the Showcase Showdown awarded $45,000 (because season 45).

** Big Money Week, and ''how''. One game each day is played with its prize cranked UpToEleven; starting with Pay the Rent (which was left unchanged, since it's one of these normally), Punch-A-Bunch ($250,000 top prize), 3 Strikes (for a [[CoolCar Ferrari]] with [[NintendoHard six digits in its price]]), Grand Game (all prizes multiplied by 10, top prize $100,000), and Plinko (with a $100,000 center slot, and later on a '''$200,000''' center slot).
** Big Money Week also got a spin-off in the form of Dream Car Week, where one game each day is played for an expensive luxury or sports car.
** The Million-Dollar Spectaculars, of course, with several ways to win a million bucks (most likely getting a double-Showcase winning bid.)

** During Big Money Week in October 2016, Hole in One was played for $100,000, so they added a '''''windmill''''' to it. The contestant could reduce the prize to $20,000 if they wanted it turned off. Of course, [[Spoiler:Drew manages to sink it perfectly on the demonstration.]]
