* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: In the early days, Adam, Grant and Kari posted occasionally on the Discovery forum. Adam was driven off by a death threat over the results of their first ScopeSnipe test, Grant left after being harassed by Monday morning quarterbacks and Kari left after receiving lewd comments by fanboys.
** When Discovery Communications started leaking out the details for the reboot, fans were quick to jump the gun and criticize the changes made to the series on the official Facebook page, even if some of them were only temporary or inevitable.

* BaseBreaker: The reboot not having either Jamie, Adam or the build team in it, and the first season is a reality TV series focusing on assembling a new team of Mythbusters. Some are just glad that the series is back, others are shouting TheyChangedItNowItSucks at the various changes and the OutOfGenreExperience from changing one season to Reality TV.

* OutOfGenreExperience: The reboot's first season will be a RealityTV series instead of the usual Edutainment format.

* CriticalResearchFailure: While testing myths related to the MoonMissionHoax, Adam holds up an Apollo astronaut figurine and says that it's Neil Armstrong because of the figure's red commander markings. Neil Armstrong's suit never had any red markings. They were an embellishment added to commanders' suits from Apollo 13 onwards because people had trouble distinguishing the Apollo 11 and 12 astronauts on TV.

* CrazyAwesome: The entire idea of the show is this! Five {{Mad Scientist}}s blow up, shoot, break, and damage tons of stuff all in the name of finding out if a myth is true or not.

* SpoiledByTheFormat: Because they go on to replicate the results of every myth they bust, you can usually tell whether the myth is true based on how far into the episode they are when they test it full-scale.

* SpoiledByTheFormat: Because they go on to replicate the results of every myth they bust, you can usually tell whether the myth is true based on how far into the episode they are when they test it full-scale. On at least one occasion Adam himself has openly acknowledged this by commenting that they have far too much time left in the episode not to take their testing further.

* AccidentalInnuendo: A visual example. The Build Team was testing the myth of the Ballistics Barrel, but one of their first tests involved strapping a test dummy on the top of the of the barrel, filling up the barrel with rocket fuel. The ignition came in from a remote-controlled car pushing a firecracker to the hole and repeatedly ramming it there to try to get ignition. In fact, most of the tests in Ballistics Barrel can be considered AccidentalInnuendo depending on the actual setup.
