* MoralEventHorizon: Season 10, episode 10: Robyn certainly skirted the edge of this at least, after she almost came to ''physical violence'' with Kimmie after everyone on the red team was kicked out during service, mostly due to their constant arguing with each other.
** Ramsay accuses Jen of crossing it in season four, when after her attempts to sabotage voting led to the remaining chefs conspiring to have her eliminated (by having Corey, one of their best chefs, against her). She was so pissed off that she allegedly sabotaged Petrozza's chances of winning.
** Russell's consistent threats of violence throughout the series, then the threat of sabotaging the other chef's careers because he did not win.
** Almost everything Elise did was considered this, but the one that was considered the most unforgivable was her sabotaging Jennifer, telling Paul and Will to say that she was a better cook than Jennifer. Surprisingly, Ramsay fell for it, and eliminated Jennifer that night.
*** It's especially cruel when you take into account the fact that Jennifer actually had a crush on Paul, only to be backstabbed by him on her elimination night.

** Kimmie was not exactly trying to avoid such a situation, seeing as how she instantly got in Robyn's face and both just kept screaming at each other, also combined with how Kimmie is often in the middle of loud confrontations and even causes some of them herself, like in the 12th episode where she yelled at Barbie during the red team's punishment for seemingly no reason, and her antagonizing and bashing Danielle in front of the whole team due to Danielle not being able to eat bull testicles as easily as Kimmie could.

* AccidentalInnuendo: From chapter 2 (intended meaning: hotblooded-ness):
-->'''Morisaki Yoh:''' A cooking showdown sounds really hot, doesn't it!? In honor of that guy's (Satoru) hotness, we should make an exception and let him take the exam!
* CultClassic
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Tachibana, easily. Look at the amount of fanart he has on Pixiv in ratio to everyone else!
* FoeYay: Tachibana is...obsessed, to say at least, with Satoru's 'scent'. Granted it's coming Dogma, but still...
* GrowingTheBeard: When the Science Department appears, the story picks up real fast.
* HoYay: Considering a good majority of the cast is male, it's not surprising.

* Arguably [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Josh]] from Season 17. While he was probably the weakest chef in the entire competition, the fact that the red team (most likely) didnít even give him a chance to shine with them demonstrated his loneliness. As he put it, ďThereís no green team to go to so I just feel like Iím alone.Ē Makes his elimination during service a lot more upsetting.

** Season 17: Elise is back, with the same attitude from Season 9 and a new catchphrase that has resulted in other contestants using it as well to mock her. BOOP!

*** After being switched to the blue team, Robyn went on a hot streak during challenges and took on a much more likable attitude. But she got eliminated for a lack of composure during her final two services and for trying to pick a fight with Milly. The trend continued when she returned for the final service, as her abysmal performance on the meat station and lack of respect towards [spoiler: Benjamin] and Chef Ramsay was the reason [spoiler: Benjamin] came in second.

*** Many fans had high hopes for Van due to his unique skills with seafood and his charismatic personality. However, on the episode with the reward trip to Vegas, he was controversially eliminated for "losing his voice", a.k.a. not communicating from his station, during a service where the red team performed arguably far worse.
*** Dana began the season as a favorite to earn a black jacket, somewhat due to her friendship with the red team's sous chef Christina, but never established herself as a vocal leader and received little airtime during services, eventually getting eliminated in 8th place for repeatedly burning wellingtons. Ramsay himself even pointed out that she had never once been nominated in either season up until that point.
*** Milly was a popular pick to win the whole thing, but after the black jackets were handed out, he started slacking off during punishments and service, and his lack of finesse and "professionalism" was exposed. To address this, Ramsay offered him an all-expenses paid stage at one of his restaurants in London after eliminating him right before the finale.

** This also happens to Seth in Season 5 after destroying a filet mignon.

** Season 17 (All-Stars): [[JerkAss Elise]] naturally. Barbie started off fine but soon TookALevelInJerkAss in her final episodes. For the men, Josh in only because of his incompetence.

Near the end of his run, early frontrunner Milly turns into this by not pitching in during punishments or service, and when called out by his teammates over his lack of finesse and fine-dining experience, insisting in the confessional that their opinion towards him has "nothing to do with cooking".

** Corey in Season 4 as well. At first, she talked down to her teammates, used her [[MsFanservice good looks]] to manipulate the blue team (this only worked with Jason, ironically enough), and nominated Christina and Jen early on for strategic reasons even though they were strong chefs. By the halfway point, she figured out that she needed to be more pleasant, and even put aside her differences with Christina to help her and Petrozza get rid of Jen, who by that point did deserve to go home.
