* "Freak of Nature" Frank Beasley in Season 3 was one of the three people to ever successfully cross the spray-paint-spewing season 3 Sucker Punch, which downed [[NintendoHard pretty much everyone else]]. He also completes the rest of the Qualifier with only ''one'' wipeout on the Big Balls (much like Forrest's run, and Forrest didn't have a Sucker Punch wall to cross). He goes on to win the episode as well, completing in half the time as the second-place contestant.

* [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Yoshi Sudarso]] in the 2014 1st episode injured his leg in round 4 - The People Beater. He opted to carry on through the pain, where he outlasted six other players on the Sweeper, a rotating beam that gets steadily higher with each rotation; landing on his left leg only the entire time. Then in the Wipeout Zone he was not only able to complete the course, he was the only one to get through the Shredder and finished the course in 2 minutes dead; faster than anyone else. A guy with a bad knee won the Wipeout Zone. Power Rangers truly are MadeOfIron!

* June 2011 during the Scare-ousel, Sarah "Circus Freak" Cooper made an impressive save when she was nearly knocked off the dangler, holding onto it by her legs alone (this was upside by the way) and dropping directly onto the platform and making it to the next round, even amazing the veteran crew-members. Even knowing that she really is a professional circus performer doesn't change how impressive it was.

* In the beauty queen episode, the second round has awesome all around. "Banana Queen" Amanda Delgado clears the whole thing on the first try, "Ms. Hot Stuff" Wendy Napp actually ''stands'' on the sweeper bar and jumps from there to the platform (declared by the Johns to be a show first), and at least three of them climb up the tilting platform at full downtilt before the finish.
