* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Coyote always does his best to power through any bites he gets on camera, which makes his request to cut the cameras after he's bitten by the giant desert centipede and the Executioner wasp very clearly indicative that the pain is on a whole other level.
** Additionally, part of Coyote's persona is that he's always very cheerful and energetic, and almost never gets upset. However, in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JTMlQKQ2_E&t=673s "MONSTER River Shrimp!"]] episode, he is shown getting genuinely upset when he accidentally loses the blue claw Freshwater Prawn at 10:45. He then acts noticeably out of character until he snaps back into his screen persona at 12:20 to give an outro.
