* TheUnintelligible: Timothy van Patten's lack of enunciation annoys the crew, though not up to the RunningGag levels of ''Master Ninja II''.
* VorpalPillow: Attempted by Dr. Forrester on Frank after the invention exchange ends, but he doesn't succeed. Frank, on the other hand, [[HoistByTheirOwnPetard manages to smother Dr. Forrester into brain damage in the final segment]].

->'''MASTER NINJA THEME SONG!'''
-->- Joel Robinson



->"All told, we covered four hour-long episodes of this show. Of those, two plots involve small towns in America's heartland ruled by vicious, murderous industrialists working hand in hand with El Salvador-style police. Understand, I too have misgivings about unfettered capitalism. I'm just not sure this kind of thing exist. I think it's Hollywood's idea of the Midwest. I may be wrong. If any of our viewers know of places where shopping-mall developers routinely kill until their semi-secret graveyards are filled to bursting, I'd like to hear about it. If you yourself live in a town like that, for God's sake let us know! Maybe MST can help."
