*** Originally, rolling a triple 2, 3, 4, or 6 in the front game after claiming that number's associated prize was considered a bad roll. In late 2012, this was changed to add the number multiplied by ¥100 to the Bank.

*** Originally, the prize was ¥15,000 and finding any of the top seven answers removed that many thousand Yen (along with removing one of the three players). Finding all five Knockouts awarded whatever remained in the pot.
*** By mid-April 2011, this was changed to start the pot at ¥500 and keep doubling for each Knockout found, up to ¥16,000; the team could quit at any time, as picking one of the top seven answers halved the current pot along with removing a player.
*** Sometime between mid-August 2011 and late January 2012, the penalty for picking one of the top seven answers was altered to restarting the pot at ¥500 ([[RuleOfThree along with removing a player]]).
** ''Match Game'' originally didn't award anything for winning the game. A ¥1,000 prize was added in September 2012.
** ''The Pokémon Game Show'' had several, which are noted on that show's page.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: For Christmas 2015, in addition to his upload of an episode of ''Jeopardy!'', Greggo uploaded a video of himself reading a fanfic he found that had been written by someone else 13 years previously. Along for the ride was the crocheted Pikachu doll that acts as an extra life on ''The Pokémon Game Show''. Throughout the reading, Greggo [[INeedAFreakingDrink takes several sips from a cup he has handy]] and [[DeadpanSnarker makes snarky side remarks]].
** As for Crochet Pika, he starts off the reading with an open can of Miller High Life beside him. The camera cuts to him several times throughout, with an increasing quantity of beer cans each time...and by the end, he's passed out drunk. [[SugarWiki/BetterThanItSounds At the time, it was funnier to actually watch it.]] However, in late 2018, Greggo turned himself in to police for strangling a foster kitten, as described above. This video, along with many of his other ones (barring those funded by donations), appears to have been taken down or set to Private.

Greggo's shows typically had the same general feel of the shows on which they're based, complete with software he programmed himself and all the dollar figures converted to Yen (to fit with the anime motif, to ensure he stayed relatively within budget, and because announcing totals in thousands of Yen rather than tens of dollars [[RuleOfCool sounds more impressive]]; toward the end, he changed from Yen to a fictional cryptocurrency called "Greggo Dollars"). On the occasion when he did a non-anime convention, some games (notably ''Jeopardy!'') were played with points instead. Much of the software has since become available through Greggo's Etsy store.

** ''Concentration'' originally offered admission to one of eight conventions, mimicking ''Classic''[='s=] eight-car bonus round (even using "you could win admission to one of these eight ''fabulous'' cons" during the intro spiel). However, some winners couldn't get to the con they'd won admission to, making the prize somewhat meaningless as a result (unlike ''Press Your Luck'', where con badges at least add to your score). Beginning in April 2015, this was changed to a six-month or one-year Crunchyroll subscription with the player now having to match anime titles.
