* WhatAnIdiot: Both those who deal with a safety net still in place, and those who keep going despite the odds, can fall into this category. Indeed, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbyFxNDP0Nw this contestant on the British version]] is the best example of just what can happen if you deal too early.

* MisplacedNationalism: The American version was disparaged simply because "They "Copied" the British." Problem is, ''DOND'' is a '''Dutch''' format.

* '''{{Padding}}''': The NBC run might as well have been ''Padding: The Game Show''. Seriously, did it really have to take ''44 minutes'' to pick out '''12 cases'''?! The syndicated run improved in this department with a more fast-paced game.
** A Website/YouTube user chopped out the filler in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmZFHjQfx-o the January 3, 2007 show]], and got an episode just [[spoiler:2:46]] long. Need further proof the show wasted time? (Note: That was for an episode with ''two'' contestants (some countries only have one at a time). It actually took [[spoiler:1:40 for the first contestant and just 1:05 for the second]].)

** The 200th episode completely averted the trope by playing "Speed ''Deal or No Deal''": having the players pick the cases they wanted in that round all at once, then having them all opened in rapid succession and knocking all the money amounts found at the same time instead of one by one. No phone calls by the Banker were ever made, opting to show the offer right away and giving the contestant 20 seconds to make a decision. The whole purpose behind this was, rather than an acknowledgement and reversal of the show's padding practices, a stunt if at least $1,000,000 was won that night, the Banker would dive into a cake made to celebrate the 200th episode; if not, Howie would jump into the cake instead. [[spoiler:The goal wasn't reached.]]

* DeaderThanDisco: This show's format, its WolverinePublicity, and everything else including padding and being directly responsible for the game show genre's worst DorkAge in recent years left it this by the time TheNewTens began, and most certainly this ten years after the program first began airing.

* DorkAge: While ''Deal or No Deal'' did revive the American game show genre somewhat and built on the boost ''Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?'' gave it, it also convinced the major networks to go full throttle with all the elements that propelled the genre into its most severe Dark Age since the Quiz Show scandals of the 1950s, which is still in effect for ''DOND's'' 10th anniversary in 2015 (only the holdovers from [[Series/FamilyFeud the]] [[Series/WheelOfFortune 80's]] [[Series/{{Jeopardy}} and]] [[Series/ThePriceIsRight 90's]] plus the ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'' revival have escaped this, although ''Series/TheChase'' is doing OK).

NBC/Comcast/Universal rivals Disney/ABC eventually dealt with the matter by reviving straight classic versions of ''Series/{{Pyramid}}'' and ''Series/MatchGame'' for a Sunday night block, but it remains to be seen how it will affect things.

** The syndicated run took a great element of the British one (prospective contestants holding the 22 cases) and took away the ''one'' thing about it that makes the Brit take on the format great. On the British version, those holding the boxes stay on the show until they're chosen by the producers which may be days, weeks or even ''months'' and in the meantime the group becomes like a family (as can be seen in virtually any episode); in the syndicated version, however, each week was self-contained...until the very end, at which point TheyJustDidntCare anymore and taped four weeks with the same group ''which then aired OutOfOrder''.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The syndicated run, whose main draw was having each week be self-contained, used the same gallery of 22 contestants for four weeks near the end of the run which then got aired ''OutOfOrder''.

** Proof if proof were needed that game had a lot padding is that, on the U.S. version, recordings of a single player's game could take upwards of ''eight hours.'' For one contestant. For a one-hour show (without commercials).
