%%* TrueArtIsForeign: G4, in localizing the show for American audiences, hired a host who only speaks Japanese and must be subtitled. Presumably this was to play up its status as a foreign game show.

Also known by the name ''"Kinniku Banzuke"'', which literally means "Muscle Ranking", ''Unbeatable Banzuke'' is a Japanese athletic GameShow in which competitors are challenged in one of nearly two dozen events, all for the honor of [[BraggingRightsReward adding their name to the list of champions, the titular BANZUKE]]. This show is in a similar vein to ''Series/NinjaWarrior''; [[NoDamageRun failing once]] on any given event means you are out. It is shown in the United States on G4 TV, often hand in hand with ''Ninja Warrior''. In Australia, it premiered on Creator/{{SBS2}} on April 2 2012.

* IKnowMaddenKombat: Multiple contestants show up in their full uniform from work or sports, regardless that the skill they came dressed for has no direct link to the challenge at hand[[note]]Why anyone would think that an expert surfer might have an edge for a pogo jumping obstacle course is left for the audience to decide[[/note]]. This always leads the commentator to ask "Will their [unrelated skill] help them conquer the course?" The answer is always a resounding ''NO.''

* HumongousMecha / EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: The opening sequence, commercial headers, and occasional ''scene transitions'' on the G4 airing feature a giant samurai-adorned robot. Yes, G4. We get it. Unbeatable Banzuke is Japanese and [[BadAss badass]].

* BrianBlessed: The host of the United Kingdom version. The American version just get a straight sub on the G4 TV Network, with Creator/DaveWittenberg doing dubbed commentary.
** It should be pointed out that "host" rather undersells it. Blessed presents the show as "Banzuke Brian", wearing bright red plastic samurai armour slightly too small for him, enters the set every episode doing effects-enhanced spins and jump kicks and generally being as Brian Blessedy as possible. It is glorious.
