* ComeForTheXStayForTheY: The surreally-staged acrobatics are what the ads emphasize, and rightly so, but the music, comedy, and characterizations provide much of the shows' repeat value.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The main "Movie Studio" melody in IRIS sounds like it was borrowed from the soldier song from Bizet's opera ''Carmen''. However, Bizet's music uses the melodic minor scale, and Elfman's uses the Dorian (or natural minor) scale.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Cirque is popular enough in Japan that the [[Anime/KaleidoStar Kaleido Stage]] and ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams'' are clearly inspired by it, and with ''ZED'', it became one of only two countries outside of the U.S. to get a resident show (its closure was only because the earthquake/tsunami of 2011 caused a decline in tourism and thus audiences). This dates back to the 1992 Japan-only tour ''Theatre/{{Fascination}}''.

* ParvumOpus: Although ''Theatre/CrissAngelBelieve'' is a strong contender for this title, the fact that endless retooling could not save ''Theatre/BananaShpeel'' from completely tanking in all of its incarnations makes that the company's biggest embarrassment.
