** On February 15, 2017, Hardwick himself hilariously defended ''The Wall'' when ''Price'' host Drew Carey returned to his other show ''Series/AtMidnight'', arguing that it was ''not'' Plinko, and that Pachinko had been around for centuries.

* NightmareFuel:
** The Gerald Scarfe animation sequences, namely "The Trial".
** The flowers animation for "What Shall We Do Now?"
** The meat grinder.
** The Teacher in the live show. The sheer size of it changes it from being a simply creepy character into a particularly horrifying one, while simultaneously being a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome in the show.
*** During "Another Brick," the puppet visibly deflates when the kids stand up to him. He reinflates, as if trying to get his power back up, but keeps deflating until the song ends.
** When seeing the film with someone who's seeing it for the first time, gleefully await their reaction to the moment in the "Don't Leave Me Now" sequence when the shadow of Pink's wife suddenly transforms into a Freudian monster, complete with LastNoteNightmare.

* FreudWasRight: TheMovie. The massive amount of phalic/yonic-looking forms, [[OedipusComplex particularly in the scenes involving Pink's mother]].

* XMeetsY: Besides the obvious lifting from ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' (It's basically Plinko at a much larger scale), the mechanic of the endgame revisits the idea of ''Series/SetForLife''. However, in contrast, where the point of the isolated contestant in ''Set for Life'' was to prematurely stop the game in secret based on how their partner is playing the game, the point of the isolated contestant here is to secretly influence the game outside, and make a decision between the bailout and risking an unspecified amount of money -- without any knowledge of how they are actually doing.

* ScrappyMechanic: Forcing contestants to take red balls in Rounds 2 and 3. They're seemingly added for no reason other than to potentially screw over a contestant who plays the question part perfectly.

** Rounding it all out, we have Pink's mother; lost her husband and clung to her son (who was all she had left) only for [[MyBelovedSmother her protectiveness]] to [[NiceJobBreakingItHero cause MORE problems than it solved]].
