** Bonus paranoia points go to the Dark Forest and the Room of the Ancient Warriors, where the Temple Guards were hidden ''in the props themselves''. It really helps to hammer home the fact that, as far as the Temple Guards are concerned, ''nowhere and nothing is safe''.

** Almost two decades after this show came out, Nickelodeon would get another show featuring a [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce large, talking head that occasionally spouts knowledge but usually just gives blatant lies]]



* NightmareFuel: Temple Guards sometimes hid in trees and grabbed you with their branches, or hid in ''armor'' that the player was supposed to press themselves against and grab you with ''that''.

*TakeThatScrappy: The film had a purple parrot seen briefly before flying into the temple's force field and disintegrating.



** TakeThatScrappy: The film had a purple parrot seen briefly before flying into the temple's force field and disintegrating.
* ThatOnePuzzle: It's amazing how difficult that Silver Monkey was. Apparently, assembling the Silver Monkey from three parts scattered around one tiny room is really, really hard. It also was the one room used in every single episode of the show.
** 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. [[FromBadToWorse And this is if a Temple Guard wasn't in the room]]
*** Even worse when the kid drops part of the Monkey. They lose time while some stagehand-er, ''temple spirit'' picks it up and tries to throw it back at them.
*** The best is when the kid [[ArtisticLicenseBiology tries to put the head down before the torso]]. It happened often enough to be mentioned.

** The TV Movie also acknowledges it when the three protagonists attempt to assemble the Silver Monkey. They assemble it with the head on backwards, and took hours to get it right.

* [[ThatOneLevel That One Room]]: It seems like the producers built the Temple and tested it with adults, as a lot of things were out of reach for kids.

** Due to ''[[MyLittlePonyTheMentallyAdvancedSeries Rainbow Dash Presents: Captain Hook The Biker Gorilla]]'' doing a parody of the series (including spoofing the notorious difficulty of the aformentioned "Silver Monkey"), it's pretty common to see youtube comments saying "THE HEAD IS BACKWARDS!".

* FridgeBrilliance: Why is the Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor in Medusa's Lair? Because it was formerly used as the Heart Room[[note]]In Season One, that room was either the "Heart Room" or "The Room Of The Fallen Columns." While, in Season Two, it could be "Medusa's Lair" or "The Room Of The Mandarin Hand". The third season always had it as "The Chamber of the Sacred Markers", and also would sometimes deviously hide a Temple Guard behind the unlockable door in the middle of the room who would pop out after solving the room's puzzle (said door goes up to the "Observatory"). [[/note]] and the pillow is in the shape of a ''heart''.

* CreepyAwesome: Olmec himself, A giant stone face with glowing eyes and a deep, booming voice. Sounds terrifying, but good luck finding a viewer who doesn't love him.

** In "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FCJFlyifBw The Broken Trident of Poseidon]]", a very lucky contestant managed to run almost directly to the artifact without encountering a ''single'' Temple Guard. However, when all the doors unlocked, she [[SomethingWeForgot dropped the artifact]] in her haste to escape the Temple. She made it back to the Chambers empty-handed and realized her mistake. However, she went down instead of going straight to the exit, thus those kids didn't get to go Roseland Ranch.

** Some of the sound effects in the temple were pretty disturbing. One example is The Tomb of the Headless Kings, where when you placed the skull on the correct skeleton, it would say in a spooky voice, "I'm alive ..."

** The Pit of the Pendulum- you had to swing out and knock down the pillar to open the door. Almost no one could get enough momentum to swing back to the ledge, so you either had to go into the Tomb of the Headless Kings (mentioned above) or take extra time climbing up the wall. Thankfully only used in Season 3.
** The Season 3 Temple layout, as evident from how many rooms have already been mentioned, was full of these. It was the only season where the layout never changed and, not surprisingly, had the fewest successful Temple runs.
