** On top of that, the contestant she was competing against at the time of the accident actually stopped as soon as she could see Panther fall and rushed to her side in a show of support.

** The final montage provided on the last ever episode of the original UK show. It really is heartwarming, bordering on tear-jerking, seeing all of the great moments the show has provided, with insights from Urika Johnson and John Fashanu on the show as a whole. It especially heartwarming seeing Wolf, of all gladiators, break character to give his thanks to the fans and genuinely express his sadness of the show ending but also his happiness for the great memories the show provided. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgBDN7_I65c The montage really does bring a tear to your eye knowing it's all over.]]

** It also didn't help that they tried to play up the Narm and Kayabe tropes more. The Wolf/Vulcan duel, while awesome and funny; is also obviously staged, which went against the subtly that made the series work.

* UnfortunateImplications: Some of the codenames given to the black Gladiators were ... less than politically correct. Shadow? Saracen? Nightshade? Fortunately, they got better about this in the later seasons.

* JumpingTheShark: You could argue the franchise jumped when they revived the show. Judging by the water tanks, they could have fit sharks in them.

* NarmCharm: It could get silly, and the stuff that was an act seems obvious nowadays, however it really knew how to grip an audience and play up the competitiveness of it all.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Unfortunately this happened in the final series, which likely killed off the show too. Changing the iconic outfits, very poorly thought out new games, as well as the fact they made the games easier for Contenders caused a big backlash.
