* FanMyopia: If you've created or are a fan of another microwave show (generally speaking, with at least a couple hundred subscribers), you've probably had at least one encounter with these. They will accuse them of copying ''WebVideo/IsItAGoodIdeaToMicrowaveThis'', even if the experiment is not one they did, the show format is entirely different, or in dOvetastic's case, your show is much older than theirs. As a result, there have been false flag wars between the fans of other microwave shows, leading to wrongly age-restricted videos. These fans also completely ignore the fact that not only are creators Jonathan Paula and Jory Caron often friends with the creators of other microwave shows, but also watch and support their shows. The most frequent channels to be a victim of this trope are dOvetastic (as mentioned above), Garret Claridge (poopooGarret), BLHProductions, and MicrowaveMeShow. However, the fanboys oddly enough leave alone actual copycat shows which steal the name, the jokes, and even the format.
** In what doubles as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome, Jon called out these fans for being dumbasses (his own word) on BLHProductions's blasting caps video.

* MorePopularSpinoff: Although not the most famous, "Is It A Good Idea To Microwave This?", which began in July 2007, is not the first microwaving show on the web, that would be "dOvetastic Microwave Theater", which began in 1991 and whose modern incarnation began in March 2006, when dOvetastic posted a video of him microwaving a light bulb. Unfortunately, that does not stop FanDumb from annoying dOvetastic by [[BerserkButton claiming that he's ripping these guys off]]. Initially the two shows' creators were friends until they had a falling out in 2010.

* NightmareFuel:
** Episode #77 ("Fireworks")...at half-speed.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y57SRQ8YuIU Episode #115]], "[[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu Doll]]".
** Episode #133 ("Spray Paint"). After Whoopi failed to deliver the results they wanted, the guys switched over to a new microwave named Jasmine. Sparks from the ball of tinfoil used to ignite the spray can start spewing out of the bottom, and the fire gets so hot that ''a hole is burned through Jasmine's door''. [[spoiler: Both microwaves have died at the end.]]
** Episode #167 (the first "Airbag")...if you were one of the guys there.
** NightmareRetardant: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yl1PnMjvrAk Episode #190]], "''[[Series/SesameStreet Tickle-Me Elmo]]''".
** Not from the show proper, but from Jon's Ustream channel: When Jon played VideoGame/{{Portal}} on his livestream, he had a glitched game. After beating [=GlaDOS=], her BossBanter continues... ''through the ending credits''. Not to mention that as a result of her being destroyed, her voice was horribly disfigured and deep. HellIsThatNoise does not even begin to describe it.
