* DuelingShows: With ''Series/CouchPotatoes'', but this show came first and lasted longer.
* HeyItsThatSound: A good number of them were used on some of {{Creator/Nickelodeon}}'s game shows (naturally, since they were also produced by MTV). For example:
** The "wrong answer" buzzer was used on ''[[Series/DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]'', among others.
** The siren used when time expired in the BonusRound was used when the Brain Bender was solved on ''Series/ThinkFast''.
** The Lightning Round sometimes ended with the win sound from ''Double Dare'' and ''MakeTheGrade''.
* 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.
