** Interestingly, this was actually zig-zagged, since [[spoiler:Mr. T was ''also'' there because Nick hadn't paid his phone bill in several months]].

Added DiffLines:

** During John Edwards' bout with Miss Cleo, he kept predicting that she was going to die in that fight. Right as he was about to deal the killing blow, [[spoiler:Miss Cleo reveals that ''she's actually not Miss Cleo''. Rather, she's one of several ''thousand'' imitators of her]]. Or, as Edwards [[OhCrap pieces it together]]:
--->'''John Edwards''': Wait a minute... [[spoiler:If you're not the real Miss Cleo]], but one of us is going to die, that leaves...
--->'''"Miss Cleo"''': [[spoiler:''You.'' (shoves a giant Magic 8 Ball into Edwards' mouth)]]


Added DiffLines:

* SelfFulfillingProphecy: The main plot of "The Mysterious T" concerns John Edwards predicting a bad fate for Nick, something involving the letter T and some head trauma. After Nostradamus (Edwards' original opponent) flakes on the fight, Nick has to bring in Miss Cleo as a replacement, which nets him a bill of ''$3,784'', which he immediately refuses to pay. Come the end of the episode, [[spoiler:Mr. T shows up, baseball bat in hand, to collect. [[BatterUp Guess what happens next.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* LossOfIdentity: Played with: In Eddie Murphy's fight with Nick Nolte, a combination of Murphy running late and ultimately showing up ''as'' Nick Nolte manages to make Nolte think ''he's'' actually Murphy (which Nolte justifies due to him playing so many roles in the past[[note]]plus the fact that he's clearly not mentally stable[[/note]]), and promptly beats himself unconscious just to be sure. And then Mills realizes the ''second'' Nolte is actually Murphy. [[ItMakesSenseInContext It's easier to follow by watching it.]]

* TheAlcoholic: Music/DeanMartin was depicted as such in his bout against Creator/JerryLewis, with him being hammered and even having drink after drink instead of actually ''fighting'' Lewis.

*** 1. Don King is shown being killed by various things early on, but seems to keep coming back just to get killed. [[spoiler:Averted after his fight with Donald Trump, who kills him and he's never seen again.]]

* WritingAroundTrademarks[=/=]YouWannaGetSued: Occurred during the fight between Tobey Maguire and [[PoorMansSubstitute Jake Gyllenhaal]], when the hosts had to avoid making explicit reference to [[Film/SpiderMan2 Doc Ock]], who Jake had brought in to attack Tobey. Instead, they referred to him as "a certain eight-armed villain from a certain hit superhero film" (paraphrasing).

* DealWithTheDevil: Nick ends up resorting to making a pact with Satan to bring NSYNC and the BackstreetBoys back to life after they were chosen to fight eachother by the fans, but had already been killed in previous fights. Satan is already sick of them and only demands one other soul in exchange, which ends up being the ContestWinnerCameo.



* HumanoidAbomination: The Super Freaks. More like scientific abominations, actually, Stone Cold created these creatures out of the DNA of previous fighters using gene splicing and cloning techniques. (As far as this trope goes, they're actually rather tame, and played for laughs.)

More like scientific abominations, actually, Stone Cold created these creatures out of the DNA of previous fighters using gene splicing and cloning techniques. (As far as this trope goes, they're actually rather tame, and played for laughs.)) One of them, Potato Khan, doesnt even consist entirerly of human DNA, being the result of Stone Cold accidently dropping a french fry in the cloning vat and creating a monstrous humanoid potato.



** In the fight between Lagasse and the Two Fat Ladies, the contestants take their turns mutilating the enemy and using said part to make a dish for Mills Lane, who tries it without any hesitation. (Johnny even goes so far as to suggest to the viewers to write the recipe down!)
** The whole idea of the match between Anthony Hopkins and Jodi Foster was [[GimmickMatches for the two combatants to fight by eating each other.]] (First they fasted for two weeks, then for the fight itself, they wore edible clothing and were covered with basting glaze.) [[ShoutOut Hopkins was clearly]] [[Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs channeling Hannibal Lector in this one.]]

down!) While he hates the first three dishes he's served (literal finger sandwiches, a "leg nog" beverage and human kidney pie), he loves the winning dish, which is Emerill Lagasse cooked alive like a turkey.

Added DiffLines:

** The fight between JenniferAniston, CourtneyCox and LisaKudrow takes place on a sitcom set heavily reminiscent of the ''Friends'' one, complete with the theme playing in the background.


Added DiffLines:

* KillEmAll: A few fights ends with no winners at all because all the contestants died, like the ''Friends'' fight where the fighters were killed when the sitcom set they were fighting in collapsed on top of them, or the pilot episode where both the Hansen Brothers and the Spice Girls were killed when Marilyn Manson cut down the lighting rig above the ring.
