* GreaterInternetFuckwadTheory: A variant, again in the ''The Experiments'' episode ''The Gameshow'' shows how people degrade into cold heartless bastards when given anonymity and given the chance to vote the outcome of someone's night out. It also uses the same formula (the audience knows that they're being televised live, and are given "phantom" masks to hide their identity).
* TheProducerThinksOfEverything: Derren is quite the chessmaster. ''The Experiments'' episode ''The Guilt Trip'' shows how far he'd go for his con by even building a ''fake'' police station in the nearby village just in case the mark decides to hightail there alone to confess to a murder he was framed for, when the original plan was to have the mark confess on site.

** Doubles with TearJerker during the episode of Trick or Treat where he leaves a girl in a room with a single button which, when pressed, will kill a kitten. [[spoiler: She panicked at the end and pressed the button with a single second on the clock, despite not wanting to. Luckily, Derren wouldn't do so and helps her through her panic attack by letting her pet the kitty]].

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: All his live shows have to end on one of these lest the audience feel cheated, and his TV specials usually aim for at least one.
** The climax of ''Hero At 30,000 Feet'' is a classic CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: After TheReveal, when the unfortunate subject realises that it was AllPartOfTheShow and gratefully takes on board [[AnAesop the Aesop.]]
