* BaseBreaker: Steve Harvey. Depending on who you ask, he is either the best thing to happen to ''Feud'' since Ray Combs or the worst. Some fans consider his reactions to off-the wall answers as hilarious and justified while others believe they come across as mean-spirited and downright insulting.

* ThatOneLevel: The Triple Round in the Anderson and Karn versions. When the current syndicated run began, the number of Strikes in the Triple Round was reduced from three to one. This sometimes created an awkward situation where a trailing team could lose by not coming up with enough points before the other family got a chance to steal. Beginning with Karn's second season, the Triple Round allowed three Strikes again but Karn was allowed to read the question only once, a rule that was dropped when O'Hurley started hosting.

Beginning with Karn's second season, a more conventional play to 300 points was rolled out with the Triple Round allowed allowing three Strikes again but again. However, Karn was allowed to read the question in its entirety only once, a rule that was dropped when O'Hurley started hosting.

** Coupled with TooSoon, a 2015 celebrity edition asked "Name something that can be inflated or deflated." to Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. At the time the Patriots had been accused using deflated footballs during NFL post-season games and right in the middle of it was superstar quarterback Tom Brady. Almost one year to the day after the episode aired, Brady's four-game suspension which he had successfully appealed for the 2015 season was reinstated for the following year.

** The 1994-95 version's scaled-down set necessitated throwing out the 'trilon' that displayed main game answers and the Fast Money board, inexplicably using chyron graphics in its stead while in-studio the Ferranti-Packard Fast Money board was used. Half the time, the graphics department would [[TheyJustDidntCare forget to put up the chyrons anyway]], and the home viewers would see the mechanical board.

* TwoDecadesBehind: By the final year of the Dawson era, the big board's answer-flipping mechanics and Ferranti-Packard Fast Money display paled in comparison to the computerized game boards used on ''Series/TicTacDough'' and the then-new ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}!''. The board was retained for the Combs era and gradually had its mechanism tightened up over the course of that version's run, making it run smoother and less clunky. When Dawson returned, the show did away with the flipping panels completely and used the Fast Money side for the entire game. In an attempt to hide the board from the home viewers, they used an on-screen graphic, much like the computerized screen seen on the current revival [[note]](until around 2008, at least)[[/note]], to display the answers. [[TheyJustDidntCare Sometimes]], they would forget to put up the graphic and show the answers as displayed on the flip-dot Fast Money board.

* TheyJustDidntCare:
** A painful example from February 11, 2011; the survey question "Which food do you think should be chosen as the national food of America?" leading to a contestant's answer being mistaken as a duplicate (a possible jump cut makes it unclear who's responsible), and then the same answer being accepted for the steal at the end of the round. '''The question wasn't discarded.'''
** Another pretty bad example from May 26, 2015 had the question "What place might you walk out of if it's dirty?" in the Triple round. The first contestant to buzz in gave the answer "Bar" which wasn't on the board. His opponent then answered "Restaurant" which was the #2 answer despite the show tending to accept both answers as one in the same. This ends up affecting the outcome, as the team who gave the latter answer had zero points and won the game thanks to a failed steal by the other team and getting the Sudden Death question.

* NauseaFuel: A few Harvey-era questions have fallen victim to this. The third question of the May 4, 2015 episode has one such instance - "If there was a KFC [[NoPartyLikeADonnerParty for cannibals]], [[ImAHumanitarian for cannibals, what parts would people order buckets of]]?"

-->'''Kevin Bridges''': We bought a horse, we thought we'd rented a horse, we done the horse riding, we took it back to the initial place where we picked up the horse. The locals explained we'd met a counterfeit horse guy, who wasn't from the official horse riding stable—
