* CameraAbuse: Happens more often in the most recent season, when players are finishing the second elimination game there's a camera perfectly positioned at the end of the platform after a long slide, most contestants that overshoot the platform end up crashing into the camera on the way past.

* CensorBox: Through no fault of the show, this usually has to be deployed (with gag) when a contestent decides that shorts are a good idea to wear (men and women like). Considering how often it happens, you'd think people would start to realize to wear something more condusive to getting slimed and thrown around without ending up uh... hanging out there.
** Also done with CensoredForComedy whenever a contestant when particularly frustrated lets loose with the cussing.

** On the other hand, some of the newer obstacles are designed specifically with cherry tapping in mind. It's never -ever- the big obvious hazard that's going to pummel you and the obstacle never -ever- will work the way it seems to set up to be. Those are all distractions so they can smack you with something smaller that will throw you in the water.
** Season 5 Winter Wipeout seems to have 'speed and motion' as the general theme with a lot of obstacles that move or require some element of speed to complete successfully. Which makes the occasional obstacle that doesn't seem like a nice respite... except making you stop is what they want you to do because it puts you in position long enough for a hidden obstacle to smack you into the water.

** In recent seasons, the Qualifier obstacles ''run'' on this, including the Smackwall Sweeper, the Fence Flapper, Drivers' Ed (which replaced the Sucker Punch of all things) and the Snowman Surprise. The creator even admitted that the Fence Flapper was near impossible.

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: Rico Andino, whose mustache resembles ones of a DastardlyWhiplash, got an 'old-timey villain' nickname and had the qualifier run in grayscale and played like an old-time movie. The black-and-white theme carried over to his contestant portrait.

*** There was actually an early episode where a contestant managed to get stuck in the frame holding up a Big Ball. After that they gave the frame a cover to prevent it from happening again.

** In the Spring 2011 Wipeout Zone ''every'' obstacle spins (two vertically, one horizontally and requiring timing). Contrast this to previous zones where it was usually just one or two and usually just hazards rather than the obstacle itself. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for the viewers, this new course seems to be quite a bit easier since the contestants take 4 to 7 minutes to complete the course which is several minutes faster than even the fastest times of previous courses.]]

The 2015 season will introduce a DarkerAndEdgier revamp known as ''Wipeout Extreme''; given their need for contestants with interest in "crossfit, parkour, iron competitions, triathlons, [and] Spartan races", it is presumed that things may end up becoming a ''lot'' more difficult than usual.
