* DuelingShows: With ''Series/CouchPotatoes'', but this show came first and lasted longer.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Since it hasn't really been rerun in years, this is the only way to see it- and Viacom keeps taking down [=YouTube=] uploads.
* MissingEpisode: Parodied, when Ken supposedly unearthed an episode from ''1975''.
* PromotedFanboy: Ken Ober.
* PropRecycling: The show used props from earlier seasons as decorations in the StudioAudience during later seasons. Props from ''Series/FindersKeepers'' (a Nickelodeon game, and therefore an MTV game) occasionally appeared, but usually as basement clutter (on a related note, sound effects were occasionally recycled from other Nick games ''[[Series/DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]'' and ''Series/ThinkFast'').
