** Think about it: you have to grab three parts around the room (large enough parts you can only take one at a time), force them into a base, and then slam the head down hard enough to set off the trigger (some players had to do this several times to get the thing to click). While you're under a rather tight time limit. And you're thirteen or less. And have to make the statue face the camera.

Misuse of Ensemble Darkhorse.
** The network didn't seem to care for them, either. While there were a (small) few exceptions, most of the shorter, non-athletic players were Parrots while the taller, more graceful contestants were on the other teams. ** Despite the hate (or maybe because of it), the Purple Parrots [[EnsembleDarkhorse have a modest following.]] ** Some of the hate also seems amusing when you consider that StatisticallySpeaking, the "worst" team (in terms of the number of Temple runs won to the number of Temple runs attempted) was actually the Orange Iguanas (with 4 wins in 25 Temple runs). The Purple Parrots actually had the third ''highest'' win percentage when they ran the Temple (behind the Silver Snakes and Green Monkeys).

* ParanoiaFuel: Those nightmarish Temple Guards could be hiding virtually ''anywhere'' in the temple. More than one kid screamed in terror during the show's run. In one episode, a boy got so terrified by a Guard that he illegally ran out of the Temple, causing him to forfeit. It didn't matter, as he only had a half-Pendant.

Actually, the Heart Room only existed in Season One. Season Two used that room as either "The Room Of The Mandarin Hand" or "Medusa's Lair."
* FridgeBrilliance: Why is the Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor in Medusa's Lair? Because it's usually used as the Heart Room and the pillow is in the shape of a ''heart''.

** In "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jWpZO5SXSKY Henry VIII's Great Seal]]", one kid got so wigged out by a temple guard jumping out at him that he jumped out of the Temple set entirely, disqualifying himself in the process. *** What most people don't know about this run is that he was carrying a half-pendant instead of a full pendant, which meant he was eliminated anyway. However, instead of going out the normal way by just getting captured and saying that's that, he practically jumped or ran out of the Temple set, thus giving the conclusion that he was scared right out of the Temple instead of being eliminated the normal way. *** Looking at the video, the Temple Guard keeps trying to wave him back. He's either trying to keep in character and finish "kidnapping" him, or he felt guilty for scaring the kid so bad, and wanted to hug him. If you listen carefully, you can hear the kid scream, so it's probably the latter.

That goes for these titles as well.
** ''The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible'' had the absolute worst Temple Guard placement. All three of them were unavoidable (luckily, the team had 2 pendants). The second one came two rooms away from the artifact, forcing the second player to retrace almost the entire path. And then, one room away, with the clock ticking down, the last Temple Guard appeared, wasting just enough time to stop the team from reaching the artifact. Even worse was that the team in that episode was ''ridiculously'' fast, having been [[{{Railroading}} railroaded]] through the Tomb of the Headless Kings, the Jester's Court, ''and'' the Shrine of the Silver Monkey[[note]] As mentioned below, all three rooms were considered huge time wasters[[/note]], breezing through all of them without much trouble. Not only that, when the Pit of the Pendulum opened a second level door upon knocking over the pillar, the player was able to stay on the upper level and get to the door immediately, rather than having to drop down and climb back up, as most teams had to do in the same situation. If ''that'' team couldn't do it, ''no'' team could do it.

* GoodBadBugs: In ''The Mask of Shaka Zulu'', a lock between what was intended to be a dead-end room and the room with the treasure apparently failed, inadvertently opening up a much straighter, much shorter path to the Temple artifact and the fastest win in the show's history.

** The Tomb of the Headless Kings was probably Season 3's answer to Medusa's Lair. The objective was as hard as it sounds, with the players having to pull on ropes to open ceiling compartments filled with bones, then search through the fallen bones in the dark and find the missing skull to place on one of the two kings' necks. It seemed like almost everyone had to go through every rope before the last trapdoor released the skull, and plenty of players stalled by pulling on the same rope over and over. *** It also seemed to be disproportionately likely to house a Temple Guard whenever it wasn't home to the artifact of the week.
